People still ask me, what is Colloidal Silver?
Well, if you have to ask then you are already missing out on one of nature’s best immune system aides and a highly effective antibiotic.
Colloidal Silver is the only antibiotic known to reportedly kill all types of viruses, funguses and bacteria. Colloidal Silver is also the only antibiotic known to be perfectly harmless to all parts of the body. While the liver and kidneys can be harmed by other antibiotics, Colloidal silver promotes healing. It does not interfere with any other medication and can be used in conjunction with all other prescription medications. There has never been known to have been a silver/drug interaction of any kind.
History of Silver
Silver has been known for thousands of years for its powerful ability to prevent and treat a magnitude of ailments with no harmful side effects ever being reported.
‘Born with a silver spoon in your mouth is a relatable saying, the upper-class royal families were blessed with silver tableware, cutlery and silver goblets to drink out of – they say small particles of the silver rubbed off and entered their bodies protecting them from certain viruses and diseases at the time. This went as far back as the Ancient Greeks and this knowledge was then passed on to kings, emperors, sultans and their families and members of their royal courts. As a result of the use of this silverware through generations, they received the full benefit from the silver particles which found their way into the body of these people, hence had little chance of getting any infectious illness.
These royals were later called ‘Blue Bloods’ because their skin had a blue tint, due to the accumulation of tiny traces of pure metallic silver. The average red-blooded people, who ate from standard dishes with iron utensils were frequently sick, whilst the royals enjoyed the freedom from infectious disease as early as from birth.
Around this same time, doctors had found out that using silver to suture internal wounds stopped infections and gangrene. Sadly, again this could only be afforded by the rich.
Colloidal Silver was commonly used in America from the late 1800s until 1938. It was prescribed for a great variety of diseases and infections. None of the antibiotics today existed at this point and silver was used for just about everything!! But even back then, Colloidal Silver was relatively expensive so only the wealthier were healthier from its benefits.
Some people (depending on age) may remember Granny putting a silver coin in a milk bottle to stop the milk from going off. We conducted this same experiment ourselves at home so the family could see with their own eyes. We put 2 glasses of milk on the windowsill, we added 20ml of Colloidal Silver to one and none to the other. When observed the next day the glass with the Colloidal Silver added had remained normal, the milk without Colloidal Silver had curdled and smelt off.
Nowadays many people are reaping the benefits of Colloidal Silver, as well as a lot of new users in recent years. People are learning about the amazing health benefits through their research, reading testimonials and the growing lack of trust people have with chemical-filled drugs. The body can build a resistance to pharmaceutical antibiotics whereas the body will never develop a resistance to silver.
Our Colloidal Silver comes in amber glass bottles, glass is the only material that will keep Colloidal Silver for any length of time as long as it’s kept in the right condition! Colloidal Silver shouldn’t be stored in plastic as it will in time draw the charged silver particle out of the solution. Do not store Colloidal Silver in a fridge/freezer, as it can also cause the particles to be drawn out by the electrical charge of the fridge.
Our silver is made using 8 custom made, high tech machines that produce top quality colloids with extremely small ‘Nano’ particle sizes reliably and consistently. Our machines test the quality of the water before starting and won’t allow the process to continue if it is in unsuitable water. If the water used for making silver is unsuitable then silver particles will attach to electrolytes in the water over time. This is called ‘agglomerating’. These then turn into clumps, lose their suspension and sink to the bottom. We use distilled water from our industrial distiller. Distilled water has almost no electrolytes in it. When using completely pure water as we do, this clumping does not happen and the silver solution can be stored for years. Any water can be used to make silver in an emergency or apocalypse situation just drink the solution quickly before the clumping particles begins.
Our Colloidal Silver is odourless, colourless and almost completely tasteless. We say to take around 20-30ml daily for immune support or if wanting to keep it in the medicine cupboard and only use it when feeling under the weather then we advise taking a double dose during this time. Use at the sign of first symptoms and Colloidal Silver should help with anything from cold/flu symptoms to sickness bugs to toothache.
Sometimes a person taking the recommended daily dose may still find that they will still get the occasional infection. In this case, they can triple or even quadruple the recommended dose to between 60-120ml, however, very few people ever need a quadruple dose. There has never been any harmful dosage of Colloidal Silver. Unlike prescription antibiotics, it is not possible to overdose on it.
Taking Colloidal Silver daily is like having a second immune system. It lessens the load on the body’s natural immune system and effectively kills the many bugs present throughout the body. It will also lessen the toxicity due to the average amount of germ, virus and fungus activity that occurs naturally in the body.
After initially starting Colloidal Silver daily, some people can feel achy and sometimes sluggish on the third/fourth day. this will all depend on the ‘state’ of your body when you begin. If you have a lot of unwanted toxins to remove from the body you may well get symptoms. This is called a healing crisis or more commonly known as the “Herx Reaction”. When the body kills off many toxins at once, the eliminative organs can become overloaded so it is recommended to drink lots of extra, clean freshwater this will lessen the symptoms massively.
Anything from one week to one month depending on the individual after stopping Colloidal Silver the effectiveness is finally lost and is eliminated through the kidneys, the lymphatic system and the bowel.
Science Behind Silver
Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial and can kill the chemical lung of any one-celled disease-causing pathogen in around six minutes.
Here is David Hooper’s scientific explanation – One-celled life uses a different method of oxygen metabolism. Herein lies its weakness. Since Colloidal Silver acts only as a catalyst, meaning it influences a change in the rate of reaction of one-celled organisms, but does not enter into any chemical reaction with the body tissues. The mere presence of Colloidal Silver near any virus, fungus or bacteria (one-celled disease-causing pathogens) will immediately cripple their oxygen metabolising enzyme or chemical lung, which suffocates and dies… usually within six minutes. The dead organism is subsequently cleared out of the body by the immune and lymphatic systems.
All man-made pharmaceutical antibiotics will kill only five or six types of germs. Not to mention more and more bacterias are becoming resistant to these antibiotics. These bacteria are commonly referred to as ‘superbugs’, however, they are unable to form a resistance to Colloidal Silver! Another problem with man-made pharmaceutical antibiotics is that they will destroy many of the body’s essential enzymes. Again, Colloidal Silver doesn’t disable or harm the many good human body enzymes. Colloidal Silver actually promotes healing.
Misinformation In The Mainstream
Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad misinformation about Colloidal Silver in the mainstream. If you type Colloidal Silver into a common search engine such as Google the results you see are scaremongering and simply untrue. Luckily many people see past this and do their own independent research. According to Google and any mainstream articles, there is no scientific proof that silver works and that silver has no known function in the body which is a total lie. I advise people to research outside the mainstream and look at the hundreds of testimonials from all sorts of people, of all ages, from all over the world.
The other story we see is ‘The Blue Man’. This is another story you will come across in the attempt to scare you away from Colloidal Silver and its amazing benefits, let’s remember Colloidal Silver sales don’t make big pharma any money 😉
Overuse of Colloidal Silver has only one effect, and that is ‘Argyria’ which is the development of a grey-blue tinge of the fingernails and the skin. What has happened here is simply that the body starts to store the excess silver in the tissue and collagen, which make up the major part of the fingernails. This condition however has no known detrimental effect and will disappear once the Colloidal Silver intake is reduced or discontinued for a while. Not to mention Argyria can only occur if the Colloidal Silver particles are large. The latest methods and especially the latest up to date machines that produce Colloidal Silver uses very high voltage electricity. The silver is stripped from the electrode in a particle size that is a thousand times smaller than the liver’s ability to filter. Argyria was very real in the past, but now, it is not a problem unless someone drinks homemade large particle Colloidal Silver.
Our machines produce Colloidal Silver particle sizes of anywhere between 0.05 and 0.010 of a micron. The smaller the particles the easier it is for the body to absorb resulting in no build-up.
The Placebo Effect
As with all natural medicines, the mental attitude of the person taking the Colloidal Silver has a lot to do with how well it works for the individual. It works on animals just as well and they don’t have any belief systems, it will also work on plants as they don’t have any mental attitudes either. So yes, with humans there might be a ‘mental’ element to healing but in the case of the all-powerful, scientifically proven silver, it’s much more about it actually doing the job brilliantly!
Over 650 reported diseases/ailments have been treated or symptoms eased using Colloidal Silver, this is off the base of testimonials only.

While Colloidal Silver is mainly used through daily oral use, it also has benefits when applied directly to open wounds and sores as it can eliminate surface infections and does not sting or burn. For any skin issue, Colloidal Silver should be used topically…as well as orally. Other antiseptics sting when applied to a wound because they are killing the surrounding tissue cells as well as killing the germs. This causes the damaged area to actually become larger. Colloidal Silver kills the topical germs within six minutes and does not harm any surrounding tissue. This is one reason that scar tissue is reduced when using Colloidal Silver. For very serious bandaged wounds it is recommended to soak the bandages in Colloidal Silver. For stubborn things like moles and warts – the area needs to be saturated for some time.
Our Colloidal Silver Cream
We here at Crystal Health & Beauty have developed an emollient Colloidal Silver Cream with natural oils and butters with medicinal properties. This can be directly applied to any problem area of the body, for more stubborn skin conditions we recommend using the cream and then spraying our Colloidal Silver atomiser spray over the top. Ideal for eczema, psoriasis, rashes and other skin complaints. For cuts and abrasions, you can use the cream or apply Colloidal Silver directly to the open wound and onto any dressing or plaster used.
Dr R. Beckers Studies
The author of “The Body Electric”, Dr R.Becker, noted in his studies a correlation between low silver levels and illness: Those who had low silver levels frequently were sick more often with colds, flu, fever and other illnesses. He said he believes that silver deficiency is the reason for the improper functioning of the immune system and that silver is critical for the destruction of bacteria and viruses. Becker’s experiments conclude that silver works on a wide range of bacteria without any side effects and without any damage to the cells of the body.
Colloidal Silver and healing: Becker also states that the silver ion was doing something more than killing disease-causing organisms. It was, he observed, facilitating major growth stimulation of injured tissues. When human fibroblast cells, which are common throughout the body, were exposed to silver, they differentiated. That is, they changed into an embryonic general cell, able to multiply at a great rate and then change into the specialised cells of the organ or tissue that had been injured. Even in patients over the age of 50 years, tissues healed as easily as a child’s tissues.
Colloidal State and Cancer: Again Becker concluded that in the presence of silver ions, cancer cells change back to normal cells regardless of their location in the body. He concluded that the presence of silver ions regenerates tissues and eliminates cancerous cells as well as eliminating other abnormal cells.
Other Uses of Colloidal Silver
- Preservative – Add to food products and condiments and stir in very well. It’ll stop the potential for salmonella growth or food poisoning. You will still need to store it correctly ie. in a fridge and in a sealed container but the silver will help it store longer, remain fresher and benefit digestion.
- Digestion Aid – Put 10-20ml of Colloidal Silver into the drink accompanying your meal. As the food is digested, the presence of Colloidal Silver will keep the food from putrefying in the digestive tract, killing any germs that may have been ingested with the food, and leaving the food more usable within the body. Also, this should reduce or maybe even eliminate flatulence.
- Baths – Add to baths for skin benefits and serious skin issues
- Swimming pool upkeep – Use colloidal silver in a swimming pool, can help keep paddling pools clean and from going green.
- Hand Sanitiser – Can be applied to dirty hands to kill bacteria and germs.
- Antibacterial Type Spray – For kitchen worktops etc.
Veterinary Uses Of Colloidal Silver
The following conditions in animals, birds and fish have been successfully treated with Colloidal Silver:
- Bacteria and parasites in house pets, farm animals and birds
- Parvovirus in dogs
- Revival of belly-up goldfish
- Hoof trouble/skin trouble in horses
‘Colloidal Silver is not only a way of prevention now, but may possibly be our best choice to store for future use.’ – Unknown
