Colloidal Silver

clr-1976clr-1976 Raw Newbie

Read about this being amazing sometime somewhere, got a little bottle today to keep in the first aid cabinet.

Anyone have any experiences with it or more information about it?


  • I used it to treat a stubborn patch of irritated skin on the sole of my foot. I had the infection for months and tried other natural remedies. Applying colloidal silver cleared it up in three days and it has yet to come back!

    Be careful though. Have you seen this blue man (It sounds like he took excessive amounts though)?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPH6utDQQdc

    I did some research on this a while back for a friend. I can’t remember the brand she ended up buying but she ordered it from an Earth Fare store. The thing that can turn your skin blue is if they don’t charge or separate the silver molecules properly (I don’t remember exactly what the glitch is) in the manufacturing process. I think that is only a problem if you plan to take it internally though.

    Lordy! Thanks jrpatti fro that link, I’ll definitely be sure not to OD!

    So, it sounds like externally only then? I heard that you can have a spray of it if you feel a cold or sore throat coming on, it says you can take it for upto 5 days, do you think that’d be ok?

    I was reading Shazzie’s ‘Detox your World’ and she talks about angstrom silver which has smaller particles and says the colloidal can get stuck between the cells – hence the blue. I know Shazzie sells the angstrom on her website.

    I’ll see how it goes.. If you see my profile picture changed to someone blue you’ll know what happened!! :-)

    I’ve only heard of it having anti-bacterial properties…. Some band-aids now use it to help prevent infection in small cuts and abrasions.

    Silver does have anti-bacterial properties although it is also a heavy metal. Many centuries ago, this led to its popularity to be used as a drinking instrument when drinking milk and other perishable liquids.

    I have read that the true origin of “born with a silver spoon in your mouth” actually did not mean to be born wealthy, as most people use it, but to indicate a child was sickly since a silver spoon was held in the child’s mouth to impart the anti-bacterial properties, often when fever occurred. According to the article, this is what started the tradition of godparents and others giving a silver spoon for a baby gift as a means to assist with health should the child fall ill.

  • It is great stuff. My family has been using it for the last few years for multiple purposes. When someone feels a sore throat coming on, put it under the tongue for 30 seconds a few times per day. If you have a cut, use it as an antibiotic. My friend is a nurse with a lot of holistic experience/ training. She recommended putting it in my daughters eye for her pink eye. I am not sure of the results yet as I only did it twice today. Hopefully it will work for that, too. Watch your dosage, though. The cheaper the bottle, the weaker it is. We use 30 ppm.

  • I only use colloidal silver when I need it. Colds flu other infections. Not every day. You get blue skin when you drink large amounts every day. When I gargle with it, I spit it out. During a cold, I take about 20 mls. every 4 hours till the cold has gone. I put it in a spray bottle and spray it up my nose if I have been near anyone with a cold. We made our own colloidal silver generator. It was so cheap and now I make my own. If you want the details of how to make your own, just ask. I will post the details anyway but you must use the purest silver you can buy. A company who supplies wires to the trade is good.

  • When you get a stomach upset (bug or what), or a bladder infection, drink 8 ozs glass of colloidal silver straight down and you will feel better. I think you do that once or twice.

  • I use colloidal silver whenever I’m not feeling well. I used to get sinus infections every year until I started taking colloidal silver and I haven’t had one in over 4 years. Also my daughter had pink eye when she was around 9 months old and i put the silver in her eye every 2 hours and it was gone within 24 hours never to return, she is now 3. I swear by it, next to raw acv (app;e cider vinegar) silver is next in line to be a cure all.

    Any thoughts of angstrom over colloidal?

  • ZanzibarrrZanzibarrr Raw Newbie

    colloidal silver, is it silver nitrate BTW?

  • I’ve used something called ionic silver, found in ProSilver 240, internally. It killed my Candida!!! I’ve used it topically for many things. You have to take TONS of it to turn blue. I wouldn’t use it every day forever, but it is certainly safe and effective for short term use.

  • Lghtnthasky How much do you take when your not well?

  • Well, speaking of colloidal, I just started using colloidal Gold and, WOW!!!!!! It’s really amazing! It opens up all of this creative energy and fosters the most amazing sense of well-being. I have such a different energy the past few days. And the nice thing is, it’s not a false energy like you would get from something like caffeine but, it’s like a zen, focused, peaceful, creative energy. Anyway, it’s really awesome.

    If anyone is interested in trying it, let me know. I get it at a discount. :) Or you can check it out on my website.

  • Slcogliano, what brand of colloidal Gold do you buy? I plan on purchasing some at the Festival.

  • I get Gold Rush as a distributor through www.noblelifeelements.com/elementary. Actually, David Wolfe is also a distributor with the organization because he believes in the products. I only just started using it and it really is amazing. You can click on the link above and it will take you right there. Are you going to the Raw festival in Sedona?

  • Thanks. I will be looking for information this weekend at the Festival! Hope to see you there.

    I heard you can put it in nut milk etc and it helps preserve it, so I did, just a couple of drops.

    Its been a crazy week and I forgot I made some almond milk 3 days ago so expected it to be rank – was fine! Am drinking it now and you wouldnt know! Amazing!

    I cant taste anything – anyone else?

  • springleafspringleaf Raw Newbie

    Hi clr! (check uk page for hello there too) These links explain about angstom and colloidal, basically angstom is a unit of measurement which is very small, and colloidal means a suspension of particles in a liquid. In my veiw the smaller the particles of silver, the better it will work, I don’t know whether angstom silver is small enough to be individual silver atoms though
