The Benefits of Using Colloidal Silver

by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, MD Where Modern Science Meets Ancient Remedy

Colloidal silver consists of small, electrically charged silver ions dissolved in distilled water. (up to 100 parts per million)



Colloidal silver is one of the few remedies we occasionally recommend during a mineral balancing  program when one retraces an infection. Colloidal silver can possibly help with viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic problems.

It’s good to keep a bottle of colloidal silver around the house for cuts, bruises, infections and other emergencies.




Silver has been known as a potent germ-killer for thousands of years. In ancient times, people would put a silver coin in a jug of water before drinking it to help purify it.  For hundreds of years, kings and queens ate their food with “silverware” to help reduce the possibility of infection. They also ate from “silver platters” for the same reason which was not just to show its beauty.


Colloidal silver has been approved for use by human beings and livestock by the U.S.  government for over 100 years. It is only relatively recently that antibiotics have replaced it in hospitals as well as doctors offices. While antibiotics can be helpful, especially as a last resort, they are much more toxic, costly, and can have other problems. 




These are many and include:


   ·             Low cost


  • Very safe, compared to antibiotics. The internet has stories of people turning blue and gray from taking colloidal silver. This effect is called argyria. It only happens if one uses homemade colloidal silver or if one takes too much of it. Using a commercial product will not have this happen in the correct dosage.


  • Bacteria and viruses rarely become resistant to it.


  • Non-allergenic.


  • Extremely mild or non-irritating to the tissues. In fact, silver in this form is healing to the tissues.


This is in stark contrast to most antibiotics and other anti-infection drugs that are far more costly, extremely toxic in many cases, and often cause the development of resistant bacteria and viruses.




Homemade Colloidal Silver – It is not recommended making your own colloidal silver. This can be considered dangerous. There is no quality control on the particle size or on the concentration of the particles, so you really do not know what you are getting. Buying commercial product is completely safe but do not use homemade colloidal silver.



Colloidal silver can be used in dozens of ways.  


Oral use.

For systemic infections


On the skin.

Colloidal silver works excellently as a topical anti-infective agent. It is sold in a spray bottle and in a cream form to make skin application easier. It can also be combined with zinc oxide ointment, for example.  Always take it by mouth as well as using it on the skin for best results. It can be applied to any skin infection.



To do this, lay the person down on a bed or couch with the affected ear facing upward.  Put a drop or two in the infected ear.  Then have the person remain lying in this position for at least 10 minutes while it is absorbed.



For bronchitis, pneumonia or pleurisy, one can inhale some into the lungs and bronchial tubes


Sniffing up the nose. One can sniff some up the nose for acute sinus infections. Place some in the palm of your hand, and then sniff it up the nose. 


For a toothache.

One can place some in the mouth near an infected tooth and let it soak in around the tooth. This is not a substitute for caring for your teeth properly, but it can help in an emergency.



One can also gargle it in the throat for a sore throat.




Colloidal silver does not need to be refrigerated, and a bottle can remain fresh for many years. 

Do not store it in direct sunlight.  Also, do not store it next to a strong magnetic field such as that found in a motor or other electrical device. This could cause the silver particles to lose their charge, which destroys the product. If you notice flakes of silver in the bottom of the bottle, it should be replaced because this means the silver is coming out of solution.
