packed with scientific jargon and molecular theory, "this ain’t it." This small body of information is intended to be nothing more or less than my own experience and my observations of the experience of others in the effective and ineffective use of colloidal silver. Silver producers claim their products are “silver bullets” and the opposing view claims that it is nothing but quackery and in essence nothing more than “silver busts”. By far the most frequent questions we receive here at Utopia Silver concerning silver are, “Does silver really work?” and “How much silver must I use for it to be effective?” The first question is a moot point in any real world science; silver kills one-celled organisms (germs), period. Any opinion to the contrary is where the real quackery lies. It simply deserves no debate and that is where the carcass of silver being junk science or a ‘bust’ should remain. That opinion is simply the domain of those trying their damnedest to discredit silver in order to protect their own unsafe and more often than not ineffective ‘drugs’. All I can say to those greedy propagandists is, go ahead and ‘bust’ your head against the wall of truth and we’ll see where ‘scientific truth’ really lies. The effective use of colloidal silver and other silver products such as ionic silver and silver protein cannot be uniformly defined as to ‘what is an effective amount to use’ to fit every person, every situation, every ailment or even what is an adequate maintenance amount. The amounts that can boost and enhance the body’s immune system over time, such as the oft recommended one to three teaspoons per day, are generally not enough for therapeutic use if one needs a ‘silver bullet’ for a specific issue such as Hep-C, Crohn’s or even food poisoning or a cold. I have found that regular ‘maintenance’ amounts tend to boost the immune system against catching everything that may be going around, but certainly does not preclude one from catching anything at all. The truth is, an occasional manageable cold or virus is not necessarily a bad thing, because these also serve to boost the body’s immune system. Having said that, with the regular use of silver a degree of immunity can be developed from frequent and debilitating infections or at the very least, they become much milder and of shorter duration. So how much silver is necessary to do what we want it to do, which is either ‘to boost our immune system to keep us from getting sick (or not as sick) or to rid us of some condition we already have? For the past three to four months, there has been everything going around from viruses to flu-like symptoms to bronchial and respiratory infections and I have been exposed to them all. Although, I have had very mild early stage symptoms of some of these several times this year, I have yet to catch a full-blown case of any one of them. Here in the South Texas Hill Country, we have a yearly battle with allergies from cedar/juniper pollen and it has been especially bad this year. There are people who have had allergies all their lives and at certain times of the year experience even cold and flu-like symptoms from these allergies and expect silver to eliminate their allergies. That is generally not going to happen. Although silver will alleviate the symptoms of infections caused by allergies, silver cannot cure allergies to plant pollens, pet dander, dust, or other non-microbial causes that may be chemical in nature. There is one extenuating circumstance that does exist; many of these things, such as pollen and dust may be prone to carry bacteria attached to them and this may well be the area in which silver serves to reduce allergy infections. Allergy agents tend to inflame and hyper-sensitize the sinus, bronchial, and lung tissues which in turn may then be more susceptible to bacterial and viral infections. This is where silver may be of significant benefit with allergies, but silver simply shouldn’t be expected to prevent the under-lying cause of any allergy. I only advocate and recommend the use of either colloidal silver, which is silver particles suspended in water or ionic silver, which is silver ions suspended in water or a combination of these products. I believe that particle silver products are best for any condition beyond the stomach, but ionic silver products are just as good topically or any place that doesn’t have to pass thru the stomach or into the bloodstream. Some proponents even claim that the sublingual use of ionic silver, which if held in the mouth for a time without swallowing, can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
there is a toxic effect level with almost all products. and fungi on contact. For the ears. Draw a small sample of blood from the subject after 15 to 30 minutes and test for the presence of silver ions using the silver ISE. In turn. The result will always be negative or a value that is indistinguishable from noise regardless of how much ionic silver is ingested. For the eyes. which is to try to help develop for you a better grasp of effectively using silver. silver when brought into contact with germs inhibits their growth by deactivating their oxygen metabolism enzymes. “have a subject ingest 250 mL of ionic silver or any substantial amount for that matter. and generally any large particle or high PPM silver solution. A silver ISE will respond only to the presence of silver ions. Human blood serum contains 3300 . either ionic or colloidal. I generally advise against the longterm or regular use of silver proteins.Although I have heard anecdotal evidence that such use of ionic silver can be effective. Contrary to what the media propaganda would lead you to believe. any silver produced with a chemical process.” Although any product containing silver will have anti-microbial benefit. there is no way to get silver ions into the human body in such a way that they will survive in the ionic form. but for more serious infections. The effective amount for sedentary individuals may not be adequate for more active people. silver in saline solutions.” Key suggests that as proof. But as with anything. Iron and copper are essential for healthy bodies and their deficiencies can be devastating to the body’s chemistry. an eye wash cup to . there is simply no reason to have to deal with the skin discoloration possibilities that these other products may have if overused. an aspirin or two will kill a headache. eyes.30 minutes after ingestion so the same would apply to ions if they are going to be present.3900 ppm of chloride owing to the sodium and potassium chlorides present. a flush works very well by lying on your side or tilting your head and simply filling the ear with silver. I would use these type products if nothing else was available. silver kills germs. bacteria. as with all nutrients and minerals. but there are levels at which they too can cause adverse effects. The same blood sample when tested using atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy will detect the presence of silver from the silver chloride present. that no one can credibly deny. silver may still reduce issues caused by microbes. stopping the replication of its DNA. Let’s get back to the purpose of this article. urinating and stool elimination. it may vary greatly from person to person. The bottom line is. For therapeutic purposes. throat. Basically. Plain water consumed excessively can cause death by diluting and depleting the body’s electrolytes. This is easily demonstrated by using a "silver ion selective electrode" (ISE). virus. Just remember. the condition called Argyria develops only with prolonged and heavy use of these other silver products. supplements may not be enough to overcome the bad health that will result from inactivity. when you consider the tens of thousands of deaths and organ failures caused by most over-the-counter and other ‘FDA approved drugs and medicines’. any risk with silver pales in comparison to any OTC headache drug. The simple and unadulterated scientific fact is. depending on each body chemistry. a bottle of aspirin may kill you. This holds true with anything you consume. For issues in the ears. even health supplements. this destroys the microbe’s cell membranes. Certainly this very rare occurrence is not reason for anyone to be averse to using one of mankind’s safest and most effective natural germ-killers. This compares with about 3600 ppm of chloride in the stomach due to hydrochloric acid. sinuses. we should be reasonable with anything we put into our bodies. but when silver in distilled water is available. but I do believe that colloidal silver (silver in distilled water) in any reasonable therapeutic use will not cause this condition. but at the very least. body size and lifestyle. “any silver ions that manage to arrive in the bloodstream will combine with the chloride to form silver chloride within a few seconds. According to research by Beiersdorf the maker of Curad bandages and one of the world’s largest medical supply companies. other credible sources such as colloid expert and researcher Frank Key believe that. Ingested silver (nano-particles) can generally be found in the bloodstream within 15 . A side note here: If you are that sedentary person. and the skin. There is a minimal maintenance level of silver consumption at which our cells are able over time to develop a stronger immunity to germs. silver nitrates. it is very simple matter. they are constantly being depleted via sweating. because there is easy access to those places. even a few drops may work on mild ear infections. the silver key in the lock is bringing the silver into contact with the one-celled organism and how easy or difficult that is depends on where the silver needs to go and how wide spread or systemic the microbial infection actually is. drops will usually do the trick.
A recent television episode of CSI had a homicide scenario where an adult female died from the ingestion of two tubes of fluoride toothpaste. powered by a small but powerful compressor that produces a fine vapor that is inhaled into the mouth and then exhaled thru the nose or vice-versa. One of the most dangerous products people keep in their homes is toothpaste with fluoride. so any heavy use of or ‘flushing’ with silver should be specific to the affected area and should be short-term. the FDA and the EPA. but as he was reading the ingredients of the soap one night. but is injected into the water supplies of all America cities without regard to scientific fact. you can often stop it in the sinuses with this economical little tool.do a flush is best. This unorthodox sounding ‘tooth paste’ was recommended to me by a retired lawyer/engineer and now south Texas rancher friend. The above topical and respiratory uses of silver are relatively easy to figure out. heavy use of silver simply for maintenance purposes I do not advocate. so why not try it as a ‘toothpaste’?” Within two weeks. A month or so later. his gum problems had cleared up. is the question of the dangers of fluoride. Utopia Naturals Silver Aloe Skin Care Bar. The aggressive use of silver . Just a mild warning here. I had sent him several bars to use as skin therapy since he spends most of his time out-of-doors working his cattle and goats and gets lots of abrasions and wind and sun damage to his skin. he called me and told me the story of how he had cured his gum infections using the skin therapy soap. For more advanced stages of congestion. it can result in dry scaly and flakey epidermal layers. but it is the internal problems. I brush my teeth with it in my soap and then I use about a ¼ ounce a day on normal days and if I feel that I’m catching a bug. Aloe Vera. liquid and air mix to form a fine mist of colloidal silver. We all have simply been intimidated by media disinformation into being scared of using effective silver quantities. Lobelia is an herb used as a natural respiratory and lung cleanser. get your mist sprayer and fill it half with silver so that with each squeeze. simply discontinue use for a short time and the skin will return to normal. but short-term heavy use will usually be the difference in how effective your silver therapy will be. For the average adult. If silver is overused. …But if a cold gets past the sinuses and down into the bronchial tubes or the lungs. In view of the fact that silver soap can be an effective tooth care product and silver is under attack by the EPA as a ‘pesticide’. It seldom takes me more than an 8 oz. He said he had developed a persistent gum problem that nothing seemed to get rid of. Believe it or not. I use whatever it takes to do the job and if that doesn’t work. one tube can cause death. but I find that even avid users of silver are way too timid about more aggressive use whether if for a cold or for a more serious issue. My personal use of colloidal silver is simple. Long-term. use either pure colloidal silver or distilled water. plant minerals and essential oil of juniper (itself an anti-bacterial agent). I must also interject a short side story here. This should scare the heck out of parents who have small children in their homes. a plastic squeeze/mist sprayer bottle can be used to ‘pressure force’ silver into the puncture wound. Do not use chlorinated or fluorinated water for this purpose. For sinuses two of the most effective tools to use are a mist sprayer/squeeze bottle and better yet. such as Hep-C or Crohn’s that sometimes present a more difficult issue of ‘how much to use’. made with colloidal silver. Now. although I have improved his discovery a little by sprinkling a bit of baking soda on the soap before applying it to my toothbrush. there are beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin. a nebulizer. Since the subject of tooth care came up. the best tooth paste I’ve ever used is a soap. just as there is in the digestive system. I will hit it hard with ½ to 1 ounce every 3-4 hours until the symptoms are gone. Most colds start in the nose and as soon as you feel that hot and scratchy sensation. when the force of ‘government’ gets behind something even the truth. This one example gives us an indication of the disregard for health and safety when it comes to ‘profit’ that dominates many large companies and their partners in crime. I will use nothing else. My only rule of thumb is this. Now back to silver bullets. at least for short periods of time. he thought. In the case of cuts and abrasions you can apply directly to the damaged area and for a puncture. Colloidal and ionic silver are both very effective in getting rid of most conditions of the gums and can be a powerful deterrent to cavities by rinsing the mouth after brushing. If you experience this. the best piece of equipment is a nebulizer. as well as public safety gets steamrolled. As usual. 1-3 drops of Lobelia can also be added to the colloidal silver or to a little distilled water. bottle. This dangerous poison is not only irresponsibly put into toothpaste. If you catch it before it creeps down the throat. “There’s nothing in here that could be harmful. I use a little more.
it is only the long-term abusive use of the wrong kind of silver products that may over time produce issues such as Argyria. Therefore. Therefore warm is better for your nano-particle colloidal silver storage. former director of the FDA’s Bureau of Drugs. Just remember.000 to 150. when there are systemic problems that are widespread in the body or if there are large numbers of microbes to deal with. or any high ppm and large particle silver. then much larger short-term servings may be required for effective results. such as Herpes or Candida. the particles can agglomerate. These last three generally require a number of ounces and even multiple bottles depending of course on the severity of the problem. Such problems are often caused by the use of patented antibiotics. and liver because of their function in the digestive system. You know this has happened because the liquid will become clear with a dark silver residue on the bottom. As referenced in this three part article. If nano-particle silver is exposed to cold. Simmons. I have seen research reference to the body cell’s having silver receptors. saline silver solutions. which by the way are responsible for the deaths of thousands of people every year. Even silver can have difficulty tracking down viruses (like Herpes) that tend to go dormant and hide in the base of the spine (Herpes Simplex II) or the joint of the jaw (Herpes Simplex I) and then travel along nerves rather than thru the bloodstream. As I was finishing up this article. if it has become systemic and gotten into the bloodstream. But cold is a different matter. even refrigerator cold. silver nitrates. bladder. Ionic silver seems unaffected by either heat or cold. the liver and the intestinal tract. I have boiled colloidal silver on a stove and in a microwave and there seems to be no amount of heat that affects it. My recommendation is only for nano-particle colloidal silver produced electrically in distilled water. or silver in protein. at that time. it may require more silver to do the job. Eating live culture yogurt is also a good option. Henry E. Silver kills bacteria/flora and as far as I know has no built in programming to distinguish good bacteria from bad. At temperatures near or below freezing. but costs more than the bottled Probiotic supplements. in 1972 Senate subcommittee hearings stated that antibiotics were. Stomach. If the intent is for a therapeutic use of silver. I believe the use of ionic silver is very effective topically and in areas where it does not need to get into the bloodstream. Often times ‘bad bacteria’ is simply an overgrowth of what might otherwise be ‘good bacteria’. It is simply common sense.seldom if ever has to be long-term and should not be for very many. So don’t let the propaganda machines of the Pharma-industrial complex and their ‘government’ agency shills such as the FDA and the EPA scare you away from nature’s safest and most perfect natural anti-biotic. causing some color change. colon. although I have heard of some persistent problems that took more time to resolve. and kidney issues generally respond reasonably well to smaller amounts (a few teaspoons or tablespoons) of silver than does the intestines. one should take Acidophilus and/or Pro-biotics an hour or so afterwards to replenish the colon flora that is essential for proper digestion. These are all areas where particle silver is the most effective since it is better able to survive the hydrochloric acid of the stomach and of the chloride environs of the body. but an aggressive short-term use of nano-particle silver in distilled water is not a problem. . the bladder. I received another question about the shelf life of colloidal silver. Some of the easiest problems to handle with silver are of the stomach. may also require a much larger ‘volume’ of silver to bring it into contact with all the yeast spread throughout the body. I reiterate that I am not addressing the use of silver produced with chemical processes. Candida. the particles can fall out altogether. Colloidal silver (particle silver) gets into the blood stream relatively easy when taken in volume. the kidneys. then silver must be considered an essential mineral to the good health of the body and regular maintenance use (1-3 teaspoons per day) will help to maintain some beneficial essential trace level of silver. responsible for from 30. especially for more than a few days or a week.000 deaths. If this research is true. yogurt and Probiotics every day regardless of how much silver I use. Nanoparticle colloidal silver lasts longer if stored at warmer temperatures. To sum things up here in regard to silver use. The numbers may be much higher now. but seems to have a much more difficult time getting to the tissue of the nerves. Dr. Particle silver is by far the best for use inside the body where it must pass through the stomach or requires getting into the bloodstream to be effective. It is important to remember that with a heavier usage of silver. one cannot expect much results if treating these type issues with simply a teaspoon or two of silver. I personally make a habit of consuming Acidophilus.
