After 2 weeks of coughing and tight lungs, I finally went in to see the doctor. Dr. Chris took one look at me and said Walking Pneumonia…. ewww Every year at the same time, I get severe allergies and then cough an wheeze for months. Fast forward to 11/7/2018 (now 5-1/2 weeks with a cough and mucus) It is time to hit the books and break down and purchase some colloidal silver. Many of my family and friends had suggested it. 24 hours after, I stopped taking my chest congestion medication. And my mucus is finally moving!
What I can tell you is that I feel ridiculous that I didn’t try this sooner and have been coughing for almost 6 weeks. After 4 days, I am still slightly coughing, but do feel 100% better.
There is no flavor…. and no you are not drinking something that looks like molten mercury. (I have to admit that was one of MY questions too!)
I am using a spray bottle and I give 2 or 3 good sprays 4 times a day.
It is a 4oz bottle of WATER with 10ppm (10 parts per million of micro silver suspended in distilled water. )
Colloidal silver has been used for centuries to promote good health and studies continue to also show that colloidal silver outperforms many mainstream methods used against harmful organisms. With so many cases of antibiotic resistance, it’s no wonder why colloidal silver has become extremely popular in recent years. Consumers should know, however, that not all silver products are created equal. Here are 5 things you must know about colloidal silver.
5 Things About Colloidal Silver
1. Parts Per Million (PPM) is Mildly Important
When it comes to colloidal silver, don’t get caught up in how many parts per million — or PPM — a solution has. Although it’s not a mundane detail, what’s really important is the particle size. Smaller particles can move more easily throughout your body and they’re more bioavailable. Particle sizes less than .005 microns are ideal. Sometimes this is indicated on the label, sometimes not. One way to tell if silver particles are too large is by examining the color of the solution. A dark or murky-color usually indicates large silver particles and other impurities.
2. Silver Won’t Upset Beneficial Intestinal Organisms
A lot of people use silver as defense against harmful organisms. Unlike antibiotics which wipeout both the “bad” and the “good” organisms present in the intestinal tract, silver maintains a balance of intestinal microorganisms. Silver absorbs quickly in the upper GI tract, and little gets through to cause problems for the beneficial bacteria in the small intestine and colon.
3. Good Colloidal Silver Won’t Turn You Blue
Occasionally you may hear of an individual who develops argyria, a condition that develops when silver proteins cause a blueing of the skin. (Do a Google search for Paul Karason.) While this may happen when people use ultra low quality silver solutions, pure hydrosol colloidal silver without additives, proteins, or salts does not cause this condition. This is why it’s imperative to obtain the purest solution available.
4. Purity Matters
Colloidal silver isn’t just a mixture of silver and water; it’s a solution where the silver particles are suspended in water and have an electrical charge. This type of solution requires ultra pure water. It also requires special equipment necessary to create and maintain a constant charge. Many colloidal silver home brew kits use salts or other compounds during the process to suspend the silver in the solution. Products like this do not offer the same effect as colloidal silver produced with high voltage technology.
5. Only Use the Best Colloidal Silver
Not all colloidal silver products are created alike. First and foremost, choose a product that’s been produced using high voltage alternating current technology. This production method requires specialized equipment and produces a silver solution of unparalleled quality and purity compared to low-tech low voltage methods

Other uses include treatment of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, leukemia, hay fever and other allergies, trench foot, and gum disease.
Colloidal silver is also used to prevent flu, H1N1 (swine) flu, and the common cold.
Some women take colloidal silver during pregnancy to aid the baby’s growth and health as well as the mother’s delivery and recovery.
Colloidal silver is applied directly to the skin for acne, burns, eye infections, fungal infections, throat infections, skin infections, and Staphylococcus infections. ~ Web MD
It should go without mentioning that you should always talk to your healthcare provider before trying this or any supplement.
