History and Uses of Colloidal Silver

Silver is a powerful, natural prophylactic/antibiotic, used for thousands of years with no side effects. This miraculous substance was in common use until 1938, when antibiotics came into fashion and were suddenly touted as “miracle drugs that would wipe out infectious disease forever.” We now know that the “miracle drugs” are being over-used and that there are now antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria that are plaguing the entire medical world.


Ancient Greeks lined their eating and drinking vessels with silver, as did many other cultures throughout the world. Pioneers of the American West would put a silver dollar in a jug of milk to keep it fresh without refrigeration. One of the properties of silver is that it kills bacteria on contact in six minutes or less. It may be that gold and silver were first used as valued currency because of their medical properties.

Do you ever wonder why the tradition of giving silver baby spoons, silver baby rattles and silver teething rings exists? Because they knew that mouthing silver helped babies survive. These are treasured heirlooms passed down through the generations. The expression "born with a silver spoon in your mouth" comes from the middle ages, when the wealthy gave their children silver spoons to suck on to ward off diseases. The wealthy could afford silver and escaped the worst ravages. In England, not more than 25% of the rich died during the plague of the 14th century while for peasants the death rate was 40 - 50%.


Is it safe?

Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver, considering it harmless in any concentration and is safe for consumption by children, the elderly and even pets. As noted above, Colloidal Silver is just as safe as eating from silver eating utensils!


So why haven't I heard of it?

If you haven’t heard of it, you soon will. Today, silver is once again rapidly gaining favor in home use. It is available without a prescription, and unlike prescription antibiotics, experts say it causes no damage to the liver, the kidneys, or any part of the body. In recent years, silver is becoming more mainstream and being applied to decontaminate surfaces in hospitals, food processing plants, public telephones, textiles, hospital bandages and is used in burn units with remarkable success. NASA uses systems containing silver to purify water on their space missions. Curad and other well know companies have recently started making silver lined band-aids!


What is Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver into a liquid, such as water. These microscopic particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one-celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. In short, the bad guys suffocate. Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to develop.

In fact, most antibiotic and penicillin are only effective against 10 to 30 pathogens and totally ineffective against viruses. Because no known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver, Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease-causing pathogens.


Since there is not enough room to list all the diseases against which Colloidal Silver has been used successfully, here is a sample:


•athlete’s foot




•bladder irritation

•blood parasites

•burns (colloidal silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive)

•candida albicans


•colds and flu



•ear infections

•food poisoning

•infections due to diabetes




•pink eye



•scarlet fever

•septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat


•sinus infections




•yeast infections




In addition, it also has veterinary uses, such as for canine parvo virus and all forms of viruses listed above. You'll also find Colloidal Silver very handy in the garden since it can be used against bacterial, fungal and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted Colloidal Silver on the leaves and add to soil water.


Also, in the last decade science has discovered that the size of the silver particles is one of the most important factors (not necessary the PPM) in the ability of silver to disable, or even decimate, broad spectrum viruses. These viruses are what we know as “pandemics.”

Pandemic viruses include:


•Herpes Symplex Type I and II Viruses

•Monkeypox Virus

•Gonorrhea & Syphilis

•Lyme disease



•Parasitic infections both viral and fungal

•Staph infections

•Strep throat

•Skin cancer


•All forms of viruses, warts and stomach ulcers


Many people have seen favorable results with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Autoimmune Diseases when these conditions were caused by latent viruses, which is often the case. Research and promising studies are being done on HIV / AIDS due to the fact that it is viral in nature.


The Bad News:

Unfortunately, Colloidal Silver works so well, the pharmaceutical establishment / EPA is pushing hard to have it banned. If Colloidal Silver truly has the ability to conquer everything from the common cold to AIDS, it could cost them BILLIONS. Faithful Colloidal Silver users have petitioned for years to give us the right to have this safe, effective treatment in our homes and communities but we’re not sure how long before it could be taken away.


Should you Google Colloidal Silver, naysayers are all over discrediting it and have searched back 50 years to find anyone that has had a reaction to Silver and only found a handful of people that had a blue color to their skin. These are people that had different (older) treatments of Silver that were hundreds of thousands of times stronger than the “nanoparticles” we provide. If you have concerns regarding it’s safely and the “drug-company-funded” research, I have all of that documentation for your to review.


R&P Wellness, LLC Colloidal Silver:

Colloidal Silver has a long shelf life but when you buy from the health food store, aside from the exorbitant cost, you have no idea how old it is or if it has been exposed to the elements. R&P Wellness carries Colloidal Silver that is fresher and stronger than most found through stores and multi-level marketing. As mentioned earlier, we carry the finest, micro-particle Colloidal Silver available on the market.
