Electrolytes and Colloidal Silver

"...there are those who believe that combining colloidal silver and gatorade results in an increased bioavailability of the silver ions. Many people use equal parts of both, and drink the combination. This
belief orginated by a report from Brooks Bradley of the Harbourne Foundation, and the staff's meticulous observations derived from research experiments.... "

Isotonic solutions, hypotonic solutions, and other related re-hydrating drink products are designed to be rapidly assimilated into the body and achieve deeper penetration into tissues. Research has shown that an isotonic solution is the most ideal for rapid adsorption and rentention in the body; however, at 2% carbohydrates rather than the standard 6-8%.

Gatorade may reduce the adsorption time and improve the bioavailability of colloidal silver when the two are used together, which would improve the overall effectiveness of the oral use of colloidal silver.


"My wife has been suffering from painful, expensive urinary tract Infections about every 4 weeks for several years--CS helped, but when Brooks suggested that by adding a double amount of Gatorade to each single amount of CS, the combination would go deeper into the tissues than CS alone--Since she began this routine in conjunction with Godzilla/BECK zapping & zilling, the recurring infection has not repeated--Praise God!"

- R.H., quoted from the silver list archive

However, there are those who have questioned whether or not a more healthy alternative to Gatorade may be found. Since the properties of hydrating drinking solutions share many common factors, it may be useful to experiment with alternatives, such as Pedialyte. It may even be possible to affordably create an effective drinking solution at home.

"Can we make our own electrolyte solution, sugar free, by using baking soda, table salt, and potassium gluconate in water? I realize the proportions are very important, but the commercial electrolyte solutions are expensive, at least the ones around here are, so I am looking for alternatives. According to some labels, those ingredients are used to make some commercial products so it will be a lot cheaper if we can do it ourselves. Anyone know for sure? I personally am having extremely good results with the cs/gatorade mix and will continue to use it if I can't do better. But the sugars are causing a thickening of mucus secretions so I wish to avoid this if practical. Actually, the potassium compound I noticed was the chloride form. Will this make a difference or will the gluconate work? Or will any of this whole idea work?"

- S.R., quoted from the silver list archive

What follows is a list of suggested gatorade alternatives, presented for research purposes, taken from the subsequent topic conversations:

Isotonic Solution: 200ml of orange squash (concentrated orange), 1 litre of water and a pinch of salt (1g). Mix all the ingredients together and keep chilled.

Hypotonic Solution - 100ml of orange squash (concentrated orange), 1 litre of water and a pinch of salt (1g). Mix all the ingredients together and keep chilled.


Boil and cool 4 cups water (Actually I prefer to start with distilled water) It will be easier to completely dissolve the dry ingredients if one starts with warm water.


------------- 1/2-teaspoon baking soda
------------- 1/2-teaspoon salt
------------- 3 Tablespoons sugar

Be sure all of the dry ingredients are fully dissolved and mixed.

Here are a couple more options for homemade electrolyte solutions.

Starch-based Solution

1 quart clean water
½ teaspoon table salt
2 oz. (about 1 cup) baby rice cereal

Sugar-based solution

1 quart clean water
½ teaspoon table salt
8 teaspoons sugar

Pedialyte Substitute

This recipe may be used in place of an over-the-counter product (Pedialyte), IF followed EXACTLY:

3 Tablespoons of Sugar
3/4 teaspoon of Salt
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1 Cup of Orange Juice (I don't use this)
1 Quart of Water.

Pour together and shake well, being certain that all dry ingredients are fully
dissolved and mixed. (Keep refrigerated and and warm to body temperature
before use and use within 48 hours).


2 quarts water
1-teaspoon baking soda
1-teaspoon salt
7 Tablespoons sugar
1 packet Sugar-Free Kool-Aid
1/2-teaspoon salt substitute

The salt substitute and Kool-Aid are optional. As with the others, store in
the refrigerator and warm to body temperature just prior to use.
