Colloidal Silver Beats Psoriasis
According to WebMD, “Psoriasis is one of the most baffling and persistent of skin disorders. It's characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. As underlying cells reach the skin's surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales.”
WebMD goes on to say, “Psoriasis typically occurs on the knees, elbows, and scalp and it can also affect the torso, palms, and soles of the feet... While there are medications and other therapies that can help to clear up the patches of red, scaly, thickened skin that are the hallmark of psoriasis, there is no cure.”
Unfortunately, according to people suffering from psoriasis, oftentimes the medications prescribed for this condition simply don’t work or cause unwanted side effects. Fortunately, many psoriasis victims say safe, natural colloidal silver – long known for its ability to stimulate healing of skin – provides them with phenomenal relief and healing. Here’s the story no one else is telling...
And on the Inspire.com website, a reader wrote in to say:
“I started drinking and applying homemade colloidal silver to my face and belly button and pubic area when I thought I had a resistant fungal infection induced by stress. One week later I got the biopsy results that said yes to psoriasis and nay to fungus. I was super-surprised.
But by then the rash on my face and belly button was 98% gone and my pubic rash was at least 50% better. Today is three weeks since silver colloid treatment began and I can still see a stubborn remnant of the rash on part of my face and my pubic area, which continues to heal gradually.
And on the BeatPsoriasis.com website, a reader wrote in to say:
“Hi, I thought would share our experience with long term psoriasis and colloidal silver. My partner had psoriasis on her arms and legs from age 16 thru to age 39. She used soaps, acids and abrasives to keep the areas somewhat under control.
How People Use Colloidal Silver for Psoriasis
As you can see from the testimonials above, some psoriasis sufferers simply drink small amounts of colloidal silver daily (get your copy of the FREE Colloidal Silver Safe Dosage Report, here). They generally notice reductions in the severity of their psoriasis outbreaks over a period of weeks or months.
Others prefer to apply colloidal silver directly – i.e., topically -- to the affected areas of their skin, three or four times a day, allowing the colloidal silver to air dry after applying it. They either use a pump spray bottle to lightly mist the affected areas of their skin three or four times a day, or they use a cotton ball soaked in colloidal silver to dab it on to the affected areas of the skin. One person even soaked gauze bandages in colloidal silver and applied them daily to stubborn psoriasis outbreaks.
And still other psoriasis sufferers prefer oral and topical use, combined. They find that drinking a small amount of colloidal silver daily, as well as apply some colloidal silver topically to their outbreaks, results in rapid relief and ongoing healing.
Additionally, I’ve heard from several manufacturers of colloidal silver gels and creams that psoriasis sufferers often find dramatic relief when they apply a good colloidal silver gel or cream two or three times a day. To learn more about some of the top commercial colloidal silver gels and creams (as well as how to make your own colloidal silver gels and creams), see this article:
Colloidal silver, of course, is not a “cure” for psoriasis. But many individuals say it often helps relieve itching and clears up outbreaks better than other natural remedies and better than some of the doctor-prescribed medical remedies, as well.
No Clinical Evidence, But Cutting Edge
Researchers Are Starting to Take Notice
While there’s no clinical/medical evidence for the effectiveness of colloidal silver against psoriasis, and the FDA says colloidal silver cannot be advertised or sold for medical issues, there’s certainly enough anecdotal evidence regarding colloidal silver and psoriasis to make people sit up and take notice.
For example, in an article titled “8 Colloidal Silver Benefits and Uses,” Dr. Josh Axe, a board-certified doctor of natural medicine and certified nutrition specialist writes:
“Colloidal silver benefits many skins conditions such as psoriasis and eczema as well. It’s soothing to scrapes and even repairs tissue damage from burns... Colloidal silver is also a fantastic anti-inflammatory remedy that works fast to reduce swelling, repair inflammation in the skin or in the body.
Case in point: Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) studied the effects of skin inflammation after being treated by colloidal silver; they found that the inflamed skin of pigs treated with silver experienced near-normal skin after 72 hours, while other treatment groups not treated with silver remained inflamed...
Research is beginning to reflect what many people have already known anecdotally for years — that colloidal silver can reduce swelling, speed healing, and boosts cell recovery!”
And according to the PureNutritionFacts website:
“Psoriasis is a chronic condition making its patient dependent on medicine for a long period of time. Medicines to treat psoriasis are usually very harmful and contain a lot of side effects including cancer. Therefore people are now turning to home remedies to cure their condition.
One such remedy is the use of colloidal silver. There are a lot of success stories out there of using colloidal silver for psoriasis. People even claim it works faster and better than the heavy pharmaceutical medications.
Colloidal silver is available in the form of soaps, lotions and ointments to apply directly to the affected skin patches and reapplied in a few hours to keep the dry skin patches moist. Liquid colloidal silver is also consumed and gives the same desired results. To benefit the most, hold the solution in the mouth for approximately 30 seconds before swallowing.”
According to an article in the Daily Mail newspaper of Britain on February 27, 2010:
' Research has shown that silver is a powerful antimicrobial agent that is non-irritating and non-toxic,' says Valerie Edwards Jones, professor of microbiology at Manchester Metropolitan University. 'Recent studies have shown that silver can kill up to 650 species of pathogenic microbes.
...Silver could also combat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis - topical cream containing one per cent silver can suppress the kind of inflammation found in these allergic skin conditions.'
And according to Dr. Jon Yaneff, holistic nutritionist and certified nutritional practitioner, “Colloidal silver is considered effective against skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, ringworm, and tissue damage from burns.”
Finally, according to Dr. Matt Eisen, “Colloidal Silver may help as when applied topically for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, and stimulate skin healing for wound care.”
Theorizing Why Colloidal Silver Helps Against Psoriasis
They’re referring their readers to a study published in the British Journal of Dermatology, titled “Detection of DNA of Chlamydophila psittaci in Subjects with Psoriasis: a Casual or a Causal Link?”
The researchers behind that study concluded, “Chlamydophila psittaci infection was observed in a significantly higher percentage of patients with psoriasis compared with healthy controls... Chlamydophila psittaci may be an infectious trigger possibly involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis.”
Interestingly, Chlamydia psittaci is most well-known as a cause of systemic infectious illness in birds, often called “parrot fever.” But infection from the birds “can be transmitted to humans,” according to the Minnesota Department of Health, “when a person inhales organisms that have been aerosolized from dried feces or respiratory tract secretions of infected birds. Other means of exposure include mouth-to-beak contact and handling infected birds' plumage and tissues.”
What’s more, Dr. Katherine Poehlmann, PhD, states that fungal pathogens such as Candida albicans and Candida glabrata might also be contributing to symptoms of “skin rashes including psoriasis, hives, eczema, acne and diaper rash.”
Of course, colloidal silver has long been known to be one of the world’s most effective natural antibacterial and antifungal agents. Indeed, in one clinical study silver nitrate – a chemical form of silver -- was demonstrated to lower the risk of infection in animals inoculated with Chlamydia psittaci. And other clinical studies (such as this one) have demonstrated colloidal silver nanoparticles to be effective against both Candida albicans and Candida glabrata.
Other researchers point out that silver nanoparticles have been repeatedly demonstrated to have anti-inflammatory properties on skin, which is why silver seems to be so helpful against inflammatory skin conditions such as dermatitis/eczema (see here)...shingles (see here)...mange on pets (see here)...burns (see here)...and even Poison Oak and Poison Ivy (see here).

In recent clinical studies, silver has been demonstrated to reduce inflammation by modulating excessive cytokine expression. Researchers have demonstrated that antimicrobial silver has a modulating (or calming) effect on cytokine expression, resulting in both reduced inflammation and increased healing.
For example, in this clinical study researchers demonstrated that silver nanoparticles have the ability to reduce excessive cytokine expression, and thus reduce excessive inflammation that often gets in the way of healing.
According to the study authors, "It has been shown in vivo that silver nanoparticles act to decrease inflammation through cytokine modulation."
What’s more, the study authors concluded, “These experimental data suggest that nano-silver could be used to treat immunologic and inflammatory diseases.”
Here’s an excerpt from an article summarizing the results of the study:
“Silver has for centuries been used to treat and prevent infection, and its wound-healing properties are well known…But the new research...indicates that silver goes further than this and modifies cytokines – the enzymes involved in cell growth and movement – leading to reduced inflammation and an increased rate of healing.”
In another clinical study, researchers documented once again that antimicrobial silver promotes wound healing not just by reducing microbial burden in the wound, but also by reducing wound inflammation through modulation of cytokine expression.
Finally, in an overview of clinical studies titled “Silver Nanoparticles Interactions with the Immune System: Implications for Health and Disease,” conducted by researchers from two separate universities in Seville, Spain, the researchers once again found that silver nanoparticles strongly inhibited excessive cytokine production, and reduced the pro-inflammatory effects that can slow or even block healing.
According to the study authors, "It has been shown in vivo that silver nanoparticles act to decrease inflammation through cytokine modulation."
The implication, of course, is that silver nanoparticles may one day play a key medical role in decreasing inflammation in chronic infections, wounds and other inflammatory medical conditions (i.e., such as eczema/dermatitis or even psoriasis).
Make Your Own
Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
Of course, colloidal silver can be awfully expensive to use, especially if you’re still buying it in health food stores where the average cost is $5 to $7 per ounce, or $20 to $30 or more for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.
Thankfully, you can now make your own high-quality colloidal silver for a little more than one penny per ounce (about 36 cents a quart) with a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.
more, high-quality colloidal silver is so simple to make at
home, anyone who can use a coffee pot has all the skill needed. Let
me demonstrate for you how amazingly simple it is:
1.) Just plug the two pure .999 fine silver rods into the two jacks in the bottom of the generator box, one on each side of the bubbler tube.
2.) Sit the generator box on top of a one-quart glass jar full of pure steam-distilled water, so that the two silver rods and the bubbler tube are immersed in the water.
3.) Set the handy appliance timer for three hours, and plug it into any convenient grounded household electrical outlet.
4.) Plug the generator into the timer and then turn the timer wheel clockwise until you hear the generator start bubbling. The generator will shut off automatically after three hours.
really that easy! You just “Set it, and forget it.” And you
get a perfect batch of high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every
Indeed, the set of pure .999 fine silver wire that comes with your generator is enough to make over $24,000 worth of colloidal silver (see here)!
