Colloidal Silver - Update 3/2012


For more information read about Silvercillin here

Colloidal silver is a powerful, natural antiviral, anti-fungal and antibiotic.

Acting as a catalyst, it disables the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. The silver suffocates the germs without any harm to body chemistry.

Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.

Colloidal silver was in common use until 1938 - used by physicians as a mainstream antibiotic treatment, and fully approved by the FDA. However, on September 16, 1999, the FDA issued a final ruling on any and all colloidal silver products. The ruling proclaimed and entered into law that any silver substance in a gelatinous solution could not be sold as a medicinal substance. The ruling categorized colloidal silver as an unclassified drug. Therefore, any colloidal silver products marketed as having medicinal properties are now in violation of federal law.

However, due to the fact that silver is both a “natural substance” and “not a controlled substance”, it is still protected under the The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act.  Under this law, any labeling and/or advertising referring to any health benefits of the substance in question is unlawful. The substance must be labeled as a dietary supplement and may NOT be marketed for external use.

Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption.

In three to four days the silver may accumulate in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin.  Colloidal silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel after several weeks.  For Lyme disease and/or for those routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, regular daily intake is recommended.

In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of colloidal silver may hasten healing, reducing the possibility of scar tissue and infection. It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that the lives of millions of people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.


1 teaspoon of 5 ppm. colloidal silver equals about 25 micrograms (mcg.) of silver. 1 - 4 teaspoons per day (25 - 100 mcg.) is generally considered to be a "nutritional amount" and is reported to be safe to use for extended periods of time. Amounts higher than this are generally considered "therapeutic amounts" and should only be used periodically.

In cases of illness, natural health practitioners have often recommended taking double or triple the "nutritional amount" for 30 to 45 days, then dropping down to a smaller maintenance dose. Amounts from 1 - 32 ounces per day have reportedly been used in acute conditions.

As with other treatments for Lyme disease, you must expect a Herxheimer effect when the spirochetes begin to die, so increase your doses slowly and carefully.

Colloidal silver can also be used on Lyme-related skin conditions and/or rashes, in a nasal spray mister - to reach the sinuses and nasal passages, to gargle with for sore throats and even in the eyes.

Colloidal silver is painless on cuts, abrasions, and even in open wounds, because, unlike some antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells.  It is also excellent as an underarm deodorant, since most underarm odor is caused by bacteria breaking down substances released by the sweat glands.

We have all heard of the "super-germs" that are resistant to most modern antibiotics. Some believe that single-celled germs cannot mutate into silver-resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics.  Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver would develop through mutation.  

Inside the body, silver doesn’t form toxic compounds or react with anything other than a germ's oxygen-metabolizing enzyme.  Additionally, there has never been a drug interaction reported between colloidal silver and any other medication.

The basic guideline that has been recommended for using colloidal silver is that it usually "works" if you can get a high enough concentration to the "affected area". Some will want to experiment with "higher amounts" (such as 8 or more ounces at a time) to find out what it takes to accomplish this. Do not use colloidal silver if you are allergic to contact with silver metals, or if you notice any digestive upset after use.

The following is a partial list of the more than 650 diseases that colloidal silver has been reputed to be successful against.  Here is a partial list: acne, AIDS, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, athlete's foot, bladder inflammation, blood parasites, blood poisoning, boils, burns, cancer, candida, cholera, colitis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, dermatitis, diabetes, dysentery, eczema, fibrositis, gastritis, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, impetigo, indigestion, keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, neurasthenia, parasitic infections: viral, fungal and bacterial pneumonia, pleurisy, prostate, psoriasis, purulent opthalmia, rhinitis, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth, and throat, seborrhea, septicemia, shingles, skin cancer, staphylococcus and streptococcus infections, stomach flu, syphilis, thyroid, tuberculosis, tonsillitis, toxemia, trachoma, all forms of virus, warts, whooping cough, yeast infection, stomach ulcer, canine parovirus and other veterinary uses.

This doesn’t mean that taking colloidal silver will cure every disease caused by these germs. Colloidal silver must be in contact with the germ for a sufficient period of time to be effective, so patience must be employed.

I recommend Silvercillin for any Lyme protocol due to it's unique cutting-edge delivery system.
