Theory on Using Colloidal Silver Internally

No one who has researched the subject of colloidal silver thoroughly would argue with the fact that colloidal silver has proven to be effective as a biocidal agent with antimicrobial properties in laboratory studies. However, a test tube does not share the same properties as a living, breathing human body.

On one hand, a substance that tests as effective against an illness-causing organism in a test tube only has to be partially as successful in the body. Even a 10% improved response in the elimination of illness-causing organisms is often enough to augment the body's natural immune system to turn the tide against that illness in short order.

On the other hand, there is no guarantee that a substance will even reach the area of the body where it is needed, or in an effective form. If it does, there is also no guarantee that it will work in the same manner that it does in a test tube. Dilution factors must be considered, as well as a nearly endless combination of variables in the body's metabolic state.

Colloidal silver has on occasion been described as being a "second" invisible immune system. This might indeed be true, provided that the silver ions and/or particles are small enough to permeate through most human tissues and travel "unrecognized" through the human body, not reacting with other substances in the body, nor bonding with other chemicals and/or organic material.

This is a matter of substantial debate. It is known that silver, including colloidal silver, tends to react strongly with sulfides and chlorides. Some hypothesize that upon drinking colloidal silver, much of the ionic silver bonds with chlorides in the stomach to form silver chloride. Under this theory, ionic silver through oral use would be virtually useless. Others hypothesize that a small amount of ionic silver is surrounded by special proteins ( metalloproteins ) in saliva, and is thus protected from contact with reactive substances when first ingested. Even bolder theorists hypothesize that the silver chloride bond can be severed in the body by utilizing minute amounts of ammonia.

While it stands to reason that some of the silver MUST end up as silver chloride, it also stands to reason that this simplistic view is not all together accurate. The mainstream chemist might simply drop the idea. However, there are experts that spend their entire lives dedicated to this specialized branch of study, and still leave with many questions unanswered. Colloidal and ionic chemistry are a literally branches of science unto themselves.

Based on the responses reported by thousands of colloidal silver users worldwide and on our own experience, silver must be reaching the bloodstream and/or other areas of the body in sufficient strength and in an effective enough form to maintain at least some of its test tube demonstrated effectiveness when ingested orally. Whether this is due to the fact that not all colloidal silver ingested bonds to form silver chloride, or whether at different parts of the metabolic process the chloride-silver bonds break leaving ionic and/or silver particles free to act once again is a matter of debate.

Because of variable conditions as described above, the reported effectiveness of colloidal silver when ingested for various health-related issues often varies from one person to the next, especially in the amounts of colloidal silver needed and the time period whereby relief is experienced. For instance, even in the case of sore throats, relief has been experienced in as little as 15 minutes or as long as four hours ( for the same type of infection and colloidal silver used ). The relief period is often consistent with the user.

It is suspected that correcting any acid imbalance in the body improves the effectiveness of colloidal silver, and may partially explain why the amount of colloidal silver needed varies so widely between different people.

Clearly there are variables that are not simple to isolate when it comes to colloidal silver effectiveness. However, it is equally clear that these unanswered questions should not deter the individual seeking an alternative health solution. One can determine with very little investment whether or not colloidal silver might be an effective solution for any given situation.

The Practice of Drinking Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver, as used orally, has not been proven to do anything in the body. The reverse is equally true.

Although no scientifically acceptable studies have been formally conducted regarding colloidal silver effectiveness in the body, anecdotal evidence suggests the following uses for colloidal silver via oral use ( see table below ). Please note that this list is by no means complete, and more will be added as time progresses.

The dosage levels ( see previous section ) indicated are relative to every person's individual experience as well as the condition, and refer to the amount of colloidal silver actually taken orally, ingested into the body. They are included ONLY as a starting reference point to give a general idea of how some people have used colloidal silver as a remedy. These ideas, expressed in generalities, are by no means to be construed as scientifically acquired evidence. In the future, with the cooperation of any interested researchers/users, we may be able to present more formal data. The uses listed are included through first hand knowledge that a colloidal silver protocol has been used successfully.

Oral Consumption

  • Silver Mineral Supplement Dose
    • One teaspoonful full daily in the morning on an empty stomach
    • Silver held in mouth from 30 seconds to three minutes
  • Medicinal or Therapeutic Dose of Silver
    • One ounce of colloidal silver held in the mouth for at least 30 seconds to three minutes
    • Once daily in the morning up to one ounce every four hours
  • Emergency Dosing
    • 4 ounces per hour
    • Either once per hour or one ounce every 15 minutes
      • See our safety section for information on silver toxicity and argyria


For mouth infections, the idea is to keep a constant supply of colloidal silver in contact with the infection site. Some infections may be slow to respond if the silver is unable to reach the location of the infection.

For best results, prior to use, brush the teeth with a 3% Hydrogen Peroxide solution, including the tongue. Rinse mouth well. Then, rinse mouth with distilled water if available. Let the colloidal silver taken sit in the mouth for as long as possible. Treating the ears at the same time can prove to be advantageous.

See our page on combining H2O2 with colloidal silver for further thoughts. Combining and/or using H2O2 in the mouth when "canker sores" are present may result in irritation to the sores. Severe infections in the mouth can easily travel to the heart.

Severe infections of any type must be watched carefully. Please do not continue a treatment that is not proving effective in lieu of viable alternatives.

There is strong anectdotal evidence that suggests that oral use of colloidal silver assists the immune system in dealing with viral infections such as Hepatitis C and HIV, through long term use of colloidal silver. However, much more data is needed. It should not be assumed that improved heath as a result of colloidal silver use means that either of these conditions have been eliminated.

Subject: Help with prostatitis


I just had an episode of intense prostatitis and I had enough of it, I think this will erase the bacteria from my gland from once and for all, now the question is, because I have been reading loads of conflicting info on webs, how much to take and of what PPM, some say 5ppm some say more, can anybody assist?

Many thanks to all

I have bought two bottles of 25ppm colloidal silver and I would like to know how much to take as there are no given dosages. I don't need it for any specific ailment but I do suffer with sinus problems. I have seen recommended dosage of one teaspoon a day but would this be taken in water or orally straight from the bottle. Very confused

Subject: Repalcement Metallic Knee...

My question is this...I have a friend wbleepedbrought me over a quart jar of Silver Water,that she makes herself...she told me to drink it,but didn't give me any other directives other than that,so I consummed about a glass or two a day until gone...just thinking it was just like water only purified better. That was last week,on Sat. this Tuesday morning I simply awoke to the knee replacement I had done several years earlier(and have had none to very little trouble with since until today,and out of the clear) I am experiencing a swollen,hurting when bent,and limited movement...I have narrowed it down to this water,and the fact that maybe I just consummed to much at one time,and has a varity of serious sounding implications as heart valves for instance...please send me your ideas,and whether or not I should see a doctor or just flood my body with regular water and hope for the best? Thank You...a call or e-mail would be great...very concerned 66 yr old guy living alone! Rick 870-499-3227

Subject: Re: Repalcement Metallic Knee...

I am really tempted to say this knee trouble is just a coincidence with having consumed colloidal silver. A couple of soda pops have more proven deleterious ingredients than colloidal silver and you DON'T want to get your tap water analyzed if you are they type to be adversely affected by negative possibilities or vice versa. Literally the parts per million of ARSENIC that are allowed in most municipal tap water are more plentiful than silver in the average colloidal preparation.

Subject: UTI & Silver

I have had very positive results defeating a couple bacteria in the urinary tract. These bugs could not be eliminated with conventional antibiotics. I learned to make silver and using both the color and light scatter measurements produce a suspension at 20-30ppm with particle sizes about 600nm. I drink about 200ml / day. Also in the early stages I discovered a conventional antbiotic, fluoroquinolone, which did show a synergistic effect with the silver. The bacteria appeared to grow faster than the silver acbleepedulated but with the addition of the antibiotic the infection disappeared in a bout 3 days.

Hello John,
you might be sick and tired from the number of emails you have received up to now given the one year and a half your email was posted but if this reaches you I would be thankful if you answered
my question. I have the same urinary bladder infection and got treated in the Hospital and at home with a variety of antibiotics but after I finished taking them I still find I have irritation and burning when I urinate and the urine is not clear but cloudy which tells me the infection is still there. I have a Colloidal Silver generator but I never took the liquid internally. Can you tell me how many times a day you took the drink and how much each time and how many antibiotic pills
per day? Also please explain the meaning of this word "acbleepedulated"
Many thanks,

Subject: HIV and CS

I was diagnosed HIV+ last May 09. My immune system at that time was so low that I kept getting infections, mouth sores, rashes, skin infections, etc. I was also rapidly losing weight. I stumbled upon CS in my frantic search for a cure. I then started making CS myself. It's been 6 months since I've been taking CS and I feel a lot healthier. I gained 25 lbs (of which I am trying to lose), I heal very easily, I never got the flu, my viral load is very low and my CD4s are high. What can I say? This thing really works.
