Colloidal Silver History

January 30, 2009 by  

Colloidal Silver History

Until the beginning of the development of modern antibiotics in the 1940s, colloidal silver was the natural antibiotic of choice and had been for 50 years. Pharmaceutical antibiotics looked like miracles because in the beginning there were no antibiotic-resistant strains of disease organisms. There was a lot of excitement over the new wonder drugs. So naturally, colloidal silver disappeared into the memory hole.

But as there are more and more resistant strains to antibiotics, colloidal silver is reappearing. There is no doubt about the anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties of colloidal silver.

The most resounding recommendation of colloidal silver, at this time, is that it has been officially disapproved of by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA fronts for big pharma, who do not want any competition from a low-cost natural antibiotic like colloidal silver.

The only caveat is that the overuse of certain types of protein-bound silver compounds cause a gray discoloration of the skin called argyria. Most colloidal silver preparations do not have this risk because they are prepared as a homeopathic substance rather than an antibiotic with, of course, the same medicinal effect.

    Hello –I was reading your article on Colloial Silver and wonder if it,s the same product my dentist told me about.It,s called the ”Silver Solution” He told me it was a holistic product and would keep a Staphe Infection from returning. I had one from a head wound I had and when it didn,t heal after 3 monthes I went to a wound clinic and they cleaned it out and gave me ”gentamicin sulfate ointment ” to put on it . Now I,m wondering if this product would help it REALLY heal?
    Thank You,
    Kathie Roberts

    Kathie -
    Over at, they actually list a website that sells this Colloidal Silver. You might want to check there, or simply google it up and see the several thousands links provided with all sorts of discussions.

    Good luck.

    Kathy… Staph infection is a serious problem which should be treated and closely monitored by a physician.

    That being said, so called “Colloidal Silver” (a misnomer since the product is not a colloid, at all) works well and certainly won’t hurt anything. It creates no reaction when used along with modern medicine and is available from most larger health food outlets. The virus-killing and antibacterial qualities of silver were known as far back as biblical times, if not before. When used on “Diaper Rash” on an infant it’s almost magical in its results.

    Used as a topical treatment it has no drawbacks. It cannot be overused, nor can any harm at all ensue from use, other than staining of clothing. Such a stain cannot be removed by any process I’m aware of.

    If taken internally caution MUST be used, since it kills any and all bacteria known to mankind, including the “good bacteria” in the stomach which is responsible for digesting our food. You certainly don’t want that to happen since the result is painful, to say the least.

    Read up on it. There’s a lot of information available online, including many claims which you might want to take with a grain of salt (like curing cancer). While it’s certainly not a “be-ll/end-all” it can be highly beneficial when used intelligently, and you can even make your own at home if you’re tech-savvy…

    Not to hurt anyone’s ego, however Parrots they may be. Please get your information from the experts and leave the casual marketing to the informed few. Ionic silver as Dr. Robt. Becker proved years ago will kill pathogens while supplying stem cells for the rebuilding project at hand. Because the so-called bad bacteria are always neg, ions and the silver product ( if properly made ) is always pos. ions, that magnetic attraction is death for invaders who also are an acid Ph. Silver ions are selective like ClO2 and attack based on both neg. charge and acid Ph.

    Burn wards would not exist without the miracle of Ag47.

    Check with Dr. Hiromi Shinya, M.D. and you will find no good or bad bacteria only intermediate bacteria who help in our digestion by the production of enzymes. Some of the over 5000 enzymes necessary for our life – and they are finite, ie. used up at our demise. This is fully why living food with the enzymes intact is so valuable to our digestion and nutrition. Supplying vibration food and electrons to quell voracious free radicals ( even some of those work for our existence ). Ionic silver will never interfere with digestion because it is not able to do so.

    Ionic – colloidal silver water has been a mainstay in our family for 2 decades @ 1 or 2 oz. daily, every day. None of us has had any kind of flu or cold all this time – and all use that much per day, from newborn to our oldest at 98 yrs.

    Properly made colloidal silver water will- assist your miracle body to cure- from toenail fungus and teeth plaque to Cancer and Diabetes. You will have to know how to use the product to effect positive results. A saw cuts wood —a sawyer builds with the saw. The purchase of a saw does not a carpenter make.

    Hi Guys,
    I think there’s really good intent in what some are trying to say, and so, with the same good intent, I should point out a few things:

    Firstly – Thanks J.R. I share your sentiments exactly.

    There’s no such thing as “good bacteria in the stomach”. That’s marketing hype. Bacteria is bacteria. No good, no bad. And nothing can live inside the stomach. In the asophagus – yes. In the bowl – yes. But not IN the stomach. It’s just not possible. I had health issues a while back, and researched the subject extensivly.

    That being said – Yes, Colloidal Silver is a GREAT bacteria killer. In fact, it’s great to combat any single cell organism. So If you have bacteria, fungi, warts, viruses, then give it a try.

    I’ve taken Colloidal Silver for a number of years now on a semi-regular basis, and I can honestly say that I’m not blue (some try to claim that Colloidal Silver will turn your skin blue). Only very poor quality colloidal silver that is made with salt, AND if used for an extensive period of time may do that. I’m in great health, and I’ve used it as eye drops, wart removal, getting over the common cold, treating cuts and even when I’ve felt run down. Most of the time, I’ve sipped a cap-full and held it in my mouth for a minute, and then swalled it. I’ve used it in a whole heap if different ways – including spraying it on raw food to preserve it outside of the fridge/freezer (a 2 day experiment that had great results). There are so many different ways you can apply it. Check out for good quality products in different applications to learn more.

    Now a word of advice – dont take a strangers’ word for gospel (aka me). Google Dr Bob Beck, and take the time to watch his videos. Then decide if you want to try it out. I did, and his free advice has improved my life massivly.

    Go well & God Speed!
