“I discovered the beneficial use of colloidal silver (in combination with cold-pressed aloe vera juice) for ulcerative colitis many years ago after reading an article that claimed it is caused by an intestinal infection called mycobacterium paratuberculosis gotten by ingesting tainted dairy or meat.
“My husband suffered for years with it, was hospitalized for weeks at a time twice. Treatment didn't work for him and he came real close to death once. When he felt an attack coming on I encouraged him to try the colloidal silver and aloe combination and it worked. He hasn't had an attack since.”
Previously, I posted an article on Colloidal
Silver and Crohn's Disease to The Silver Edge website, which includes
several lengthy testimonials from Crohn's sufferers who found profound relief
after using colloidal silver.

What About Colitis?
Over the years I've also received a small handful of
testimonials (anecdotal accounts) from people suffering from various forms of
colitis. Here's one of the latest:
"I have ulcerative colitis and it has proven to be successful in ending
flare-ups by using colloidal silver in an enema. I also use it as a cleaning
agent in the kitchen & bathroom.
Thank you for providing the endless opportunities and uses for your

That's interesting, because the gentleman is apparently
gaining relief from colitis flare-ups by using colloidal silver rectally.
However, since I’ve never used colloidal silver rectally, I can’t
comment with any degree of authority on this particular usage beyond what the
anecdotal account above states.
Another colitis sufferer posted something similar
on the IHaveUC.com website. She wrote:
“I was diagnosed with UC five years ago at the age of 24. According to
the colonoscopy 70% of my colon was inflamed and full of ulcers…”
[She went on to describe how she’d
used Vitamin E enemas of up to 8,000 IUs per day for about two weeks to help
stop the flare-ups and provide relief.
They worked at first, but later stopped working. So she switched to colloidal silver after
reading that pathogenic microbes might be at the root of her problem. And the colloidal silver treatment did the
trick. Here’s what she wrote:]
“The only thing I could think of at
this point that I hadn’t tried for ulcerative colitis was colloidal
silver. I had come across it while researching other things and had
bought it for treating flu. It did help with flu and my mother was especially
happy as it was the first thing that stopped her lip herpes from coming out.

1 week, I used approximately 25 ml of colloidal silver after bowel movements.

to normal. Still no blood or mucus.

of alcohol on two occasions (less than half a glass though). Nothing!

think just colloidal silver enema will be more than enough. Make sure to
supplement it with a probiotic afterwards. I really hope it will help someone
out there. 25 ml, once a day with an
enema syringe or whatever else you find.”
When asked to explain more about how she gave herself the
colloidal silver enemas, she wrote as follows:
“Well to be honest I just used a dropper I had from another liquid
vitamin bottle that I’d finished. I washed that with hot water (no soap) and
can definitely use a baby nasal syringe or something similar. I bought a 200ml
bottle of colloidal silver from Higher Nature, but I believe any brand will
work. I just found this one and divided
it into approximate 25 ml doses over 8 days right after my bowel movement.
should take about 5 minutes max and then you must lie on your left side for
about 15 minutes. Also, I’d suggest using some Vaseline on the tip of the
dropper or syringe you are going to use.
the afternoon or evening I drank kefir but you can take a probiotic if that
works for you.”
Another ulcerative colitis sufferer wrote:
“I tried the colloidal silver enema in the morning for two weeks now. It
has helped reduce the bleeding by about 30%. It did not completely alleviate it
as it did with you but at least it’s move in the right
direction so I’ll continue for a while.”
And another ulcerative colitis sufferer who tried this same
“I wanted to give you an update. The vit E
enemas turned out to be a dead end so I moved on to the colloidal silver
enemas. I did not get the rapid results you did, and ended up doing 2 weeks.
the end of the two weeks, the blood was 90% gone which is great but still no
full remission. The good news is I have maintained this level even after
stopping the enemas.”
So the colloidal silver enema technique clearly works better for some colitis
sufferers than for others. And this may
have a lot to do with whether or not an active infection is involved in the
Colloidal silver, of course, is a well-known natural antimicrobial
substance, considered by some to be the most powerful natural
infection-fighting agent in the world.
But in cases where the ulcerative colitis might be
originating from genetic or auto-immune factors, then silver’s well-known
anti-inflammatory properties might still provide at least some relief since
inflammation is such a large part of the disease process.
Most of the people using colloidal silver enemas for colitis
say that afterwards they’d also supplement with a good probiotic supplement, or
with natural probiotic foods like yogurt, homemade kefir or even sour cabbage
(i.e., fermented veggies).
The reason for the supplementation with probiotics is to
help restore to the bowels any beneficial intestinal microbes that might have
been killed by the colloidal silver enemas.
According to an article
titled “10 Top Items for Addressing Ulcerative Colitis Naturally,” which
appeared on NaturalNews.com and was written by our old friend and investigative
reporter Tony Isaacs:
“Colloidal silver combined with probiotics can be very effective against

which have invaded the affected areas.

are themselves among the most popular inflammatory bowel disease remedies.
bacteria that reside in the gut help manage ulcerative
colitis because they help control the number of potentially harmful
bacteria, reduce inflammation, and improve the protective mucus lining of the
University of Alberta study found that probiotic supplementation of 3,600
billion bacteria a day for 6 weeks resulted in 53 percent of the patients
having remission and another 24 percent having noticeable improvement.”
What Tony’s talking about in his article is the theory of
competitive inhibition. After you use
colloidal silver to get rid of the pathogens, you want to restore the levels of
beneficial microbes in your intestinal tract through probiotic
In other words, the good bacteria tend to outcompete
any disease-causing microbes that might still be in the intestinal tract,
keeping them from forming large colonies, spreading and exacerbating the
What the Experts Are
In an older edition of Dr. Balch's bestselling book, Prescriptions for Natural Healing, he
wrote (in the section describing various health conditions that respond
favorably to colloidal silver usage) that silver could be used both orally or
"applied topically" for ulcerative colitis. He stated, on page 667:
Ulcerative Colitis – “A natural broad-spectrum antiseptic that
fights infection, subdues inflammation, and promotes healing. Can be taken by
mouth or applied topically.”
Colitis is also mentioned as one of the conditions for which
colloidal silver had been found useful before the advent of prescription
See, for example, this list of 109 different infections and
diseases for which colloidal silver was used by doctors back in the early
And There’s More…
What's more, Alfred Searles, in
his circa 1920's book, The Use of
Colloids in Health and Disease, wrote that taking colloidal silver orally
can be helpful for colitis as well as for other bowel and intestinal
inflammatory conditions. Searles stated:
internally, the particles of colloidal silver are resistant to the action of
dilute acids and alkalies of the stomach and
consequently...pass into the intestine unchanged. The importance of this is
obvious in such conditions as ulcerative urticaria...dermatitis...
dysentery, diarrhea and colitis."
Finally, the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
mentioned colitis in one of their bulletins, explaining that it’s one of the
conditions colloidal silver has been helpful against in the past. They wrote:
"Among the conditions colloidal silver has controlled are severe burns,
acne, boils, candida and yeast infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive
problems and colitis... however these uses of colloidal silver are not

been clinically proven for any medical treatment. But some people suffering from inflammatory
bowel diseases have indeed found it to be of benefit. That might make it worth trying, just to
However, from a strictly layman’s point-of-view, I'd
recommend that if you have colitis and you choose to try oral doses of colloidal
silver, you start small, using only typical mineral supplementation doses
(i.e., only a teaspoonful several times a day at first) to make sure it doesn't
irritate the issue.
Everybody's biologically different. What helps one person might not help
another. And there are always rare
subsets of people who don’t handle nutritional supplements well, or whose
conditions might be exacerbated by a supplement.
By starting small, you can judge whether or not there’s any
relief, and titrate the dosage upwards, gradually, a teaspoon full at a time,
until the best relief is found.
You might also want to obtain a copy of the 30-page Colloidal Silver Safe
Dosage Report, which is available FREE by email, and which explains how to
determine your maximum safe daily dosage rate based on your body weight and the
ppm of the colloidal silver product you’re using.
And of course, if you’re adventurous, you might consider
trying the colloidal silver enemas, as described above by people who have
successfully used them.
Finally, since the various forms of colitis are very serious
conditions, should you decide to try colloidal silver you should definitely let
your specialist know what you’re doing.
That way, he (or she) can monitor your progress.
