Add Colloidal Silver to Your Family’s Disaster Preparedness Arsenal

Full length photo of funky brave, mommy daddy kid with brunette hair show triceps biceps enjoy enthusiastic wear white t-shirt denim jeans sneakers isolated over blue color background - Add Colloidal Silver to Your Family's Disaster Preparedness Arsenal I always encourage others to add colloidal silver to their emergency and disaster preparedness arsenal because, as many experienced colloidal silver users already know, it can be extremely useful in many different ways.

In an emergency or disaster situation, colloidal silver can be used as an infection-fighting agent, help keep foods from spoiling, keep your drinking water germ-free, keep your household disinfected, safely and naturally and all without potentially toxic chemicals.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…. Here’s what you need to know about colloidal silver BEFORE the next big disaster event hits…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

In today’s world, it’s easy to imagine what would happen if a major emergency, natural or man-made disaster, or even large-scale terrorist attack occurred, and how it might impact our daily lives. Hospitals in every city could be shut down, unable to take new patients or properly treat existing patients. Stores could be without power. Millions of families could go without heating, cooling, lights or refrigeration. TV, radio and internet could go down, along with news and public broadcast warning systems. Confusion would reign.

Municipal water systems – all of which depend upon electricity to get water into your home – could slam to a screeching halt. And tens or even hundreds of millions of families like yours and mine could suddenly find themselves without fresh, pure water.

Street lights could be out. Food storage hubs that supply grocery stores could be shut down across the country. Military bases could go black. Police stations could be locked up. All major airports could be closed.

Everything about your world and mine could change overnight. Think dark. Very dark. There would be nationwide chaos, calamity and unrestrained panic within hours of an attack on the nation’s power grid. Society as we know it would collapse. And the aftershocks – including riots in the streets, fires, thefts, murders and more – could last for weeks or even months, depending upon the extent of the physical damage wreaked by terrorists on our national power grid, and how long it might take to repair it.

Emergency and Disaster Situations Can Come at Any Time…

If you can recall events surrounding Hurricane Katrina in 2005, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect – the mass looting of stores, the home invasions, the scarcity of fresh food and clean water, the fires blazing in different parts of the city and no first-responders available to help, police too overburdened to respond to ongoing crime sprees, assaults and home invasions, hospitals shut down, doctor’s offices closed, pharmacies boarded up, people being herded into football stadiums to sleep on cots…you name it.

Then multiply all of that chaos and darkness by a factor of about twenty or thirty, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to experience if the U.S. power grid goes down.

Unfortunately, that scenario is not so far-fetched. In fact, federal, state, county and even local government agencies have been practicing and preparing for just such an eventuality.

The bottom line is that the potential for such a disaster happening in your lifetime is very high. And it’s getting worse by the day.

That’s why, if you’re a prepper like me you’ve likely got some food and fresh water stored away. You might even have a generator or some solar power rigged up to help run your home. And you’ve probably got some extra household goods on hand like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper and pet supplies. Maybe you’ve also got some extra medications on hand, in case they’re needed. And perhaps you’ve stocked up on ammunition in case people are tempted to rob you or otherwise harm you or your family during an extended national or local crisis.

A God-Send for Preppers: Colloidal Silver

But I’m urging you to add one more important item to your personal preparedness arsenal – a unique, all-natural substance that will help you and your family get through such unthinkably difficult times with far greater ease and well-being. And that one added item is colloidal silver.

In case you’re completely unfamiliar with colloidal silver, the first thing you need to know is that it’s an all-natural, liquid nutritional supplement. And it has only two very simple ingredients: Pure water and ionic silver – tiny, microscopic-sized, electrically-charged particles of silver suspended in the water. That’s it. In other words, colloidal silver is a liquid mineral nutritional supplement, and the mineral suspended in the water is pure silver. Nothing else.

If you take a good, daily multivitamin/mineral supplement, you likely already take iron, zinc, copper, manganese, chromium, vanadium and other minerals. Here’s why adding colloidal silver to that list of healthful minerals could be one of the most important and beneficial steps you’ll take to round out your home preparedness arsenal:

Silver is quite literally the world’s #1 most powerful, all-natural infection-fighting agent. That’s because it kills germs. It kills them inside the body, outside the body, and even in the air around you. It stops colds, flu and even pneumonia. If heals ear infections, eye infections, sore throats and sinus infections. It accelerates the healing of cuts and burns, scratches and wounds, and helps prevent them from becoming infected. It also helps reduce inflammation. And it boosts immunity.

As Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D. board-certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has said of colloidal silver:

“Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science – natural silver. I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent.”

And as Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D., of the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington state has said of colloidal silver:

“Colloidal silver just might be the next germ-fighting wonder drug. And not just for the serious threats making headlines: It’s also effective against bacterial infections like strep throat, viruses like the flu, and fungal infections like Candida.

No matter how much a germ mutates, it can’t change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver. And in the process, the silver doesn’t harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do…”

In other words, in a serious, emergency or disaster situation in which hospitals, pharmacies and doctor’s offices are closed, colloidal silver is your #1 best substitute for antibiotic drugs should an infection set in. To learn more about colloidal silver’s unique ability to heal infections and stop the progress of infectious diseases, see:

But there’s a lot more to colloidal silver. For example, colloidal silver can also be used to disinfect microbe-contaminated drinking water. In fact, as you’ll see below, it can be used to disinfect your entire household, if need be. Safely. Without the use of potentially harmful and toxic home disinfectants. And without harm to adults, children or pets.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the powerful ways colloidal silver can be used to help keep your family safe and infection-free during an extended crisis…

13 Ways Colloidal Silver Can Help Save Your Family During a Crisis

Here are 15 different ways you can use colloidal silver to help keep your family safe, healthy and infection-free during the aftermath of a terror attack, natural disaster or other emergency scenario when chaos reigns and regular medical care might not be available:

1. Keeping foods fresher, longer

Colloidal silver helps with keeping foods fresh and healthy in several ways. Because it’s a powerful natural antimicrobial agent, it’s great for preserving the freshness of foods. Add one ounce of 10 ppm strength colloidal silver to a quart of milk and you can extend the shelf life by twice the usual time.

In fact, silver is so effective at slowing down food spoilage that Brazilian researchers have developed a milk carton imbedded with silver nano particles, which quite literally DOUBLES the shelf-life of the milk. (Learn more in the article “Colloidal Silver Doubles Shelf-Life of Milk“)

But that’s only part of the story. What about the fresh fruits and vegetables you purchase at the grocery store, or grow in your garden? Colloidal silver is deadly to food poisoning pathogens like E coli or Salmonella, which are commonly found on fresh fruits and veggies.

All you have to do is soak your fresh fruits or veggies in a bowl consisting of one quart of water plus one ounce of 10 ppm colloidal silver in order to kill any pathogens. Soak for five to 10 minutes, then rinse and store. Learn more in the following short article, “A Simple, Effective Colloidal Silver Fruit and Vegetable Wash“.

Or, you can simply spray your fresh fruits and veggies with 10 ppm colloidal silver before storing them. This same process will not only kill any potentially deadly food poisoning bacteria on the food, it will help ensure that they last longer too, before beginning to spoil. That makes buying (or growing) fresh fruits and veggies less expensive, because you’ll have less waste. For additional information see: Using Colloidal Silver for Healthier Fruits and Vegetables.

2. Increasing the safety and shelf-life of home canned goods

Many preppers and do-it-yourselfers can their own food. Home food storage is a great way to keep the family fed in the event of an emergency. But you want to be sure that your stored food is safe, especially when you’re using a water bath method.

To prevent spoilage add 1 tablespoon of 10 ppm colloidal silver per quart when home-canning. Seal the lids as instructed. For more information on keeping canned foods fresher longer, see Colloidal Silver for Canning and Food Preservation.

3. Disinfecting your drinking water

Probably the most important ingredient in preparing for an emergency is water. You can live for weeks without food. But you can only live for about three days without water. So you sure do want plenty of clean, uncontaminated water on hand during a serious emergency or disaster scenario.

Unfortunately, over time, stored water can easily become infected with bacteria. But here’s the good news: You can ensure the safety of your stored water by adding a couple of ounces of 10 ppm colloidal silver to each gallon of water before storing it. Then, months later when you get ready to use the water, add another ounce or two of 10 ppm colloidal silver as a “just in case” measure. Let sit overnight before using, and you’re good to go.

Is this anything new? No, it’s not. For a very long time, humans have known that silver purifies water and keeps it safe to drink. Even before germs were discovered, people instinctively knew to use silver to keep water from “going bad.” That’s why early American pioneers threw a silver dollar into their water barrels – it kept their water safely disinfected. This is also why Mexico has used colloidal silver for years as a safe, natural water disinfectant. What’s more, both NASA and the Russian space program have used colloidal silver to disinfect water aboard the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station and on other space voyagers. Even modern-day water filters utilize silver in the filtration process, to help kill pathogens that might otherwise escape the filters.

But suppose you don’t have water stored. Maybe you’re out in the wilds where you have to turn to nature for water. You might have a personal filter on hand to make sure there’s no dirt and debris in the water as you drink it. But even when the water is filtered, how do you insure it’s safe from invisible pathogens? It’s simple: Just add some colloidal silver and allow it to set for an hour or two before drinking it. Colloidal silver is effective against spores, parasites, bacteria, fungus and even algae. So it can be used to disinfect water in the wild. For example, after you fill a canteen with filtered water, just add an ounce of colloidal silver, shake it up, and allow it to sit for a few hours before drinking.

You can learn more about using colloidal silver to keep your drinking water safe and microbe-free, here:

As you can see, colloidal silver has been used widely for decades to help keep drinking water safe and free of microbial contamination. It’s even used on ocean-going cruise ships to help keep the drinking water safe. And now you too can take advantage of this powerful, health-enhancing quality of colloidal silver – not just for water disinfection, but for disinfecting your entire home, as well…

4. Household disinfection made easy

If there’s ever a time you’ll want a safe, natural, non-toxic and broad-spectrum disinfectant for your home, it’s during an emergency or disaster scenario. After all, keeping your home as pathogen-free as possible means you’ll have far fewer chances of ending up with an infection when you least need one. And it means your family will have a better chance of remaining infection-free, as well.

Remember, during a prolonged emergency or disaster scenario, as the system breaks down so too will the means to keep your home safe from the spread of bacteria, fungus and viruses. Common household disinfectants will become unavailable. Thankfully, the very best substitute for any household disinfectant is colloidal silver.

  • For example, a light spray of colloidal silver under your kitchen and bathroom sinks will prevent mold and mildew from growing. It will disinfect the area, and as a bonus it will eliminate musty smells and odors.
  • Add ½ cup colloidal silver to your mop water and you’ve got a safe, powerful antimicrobial to protect your household from the spread of germs.
  • As you clean your kitchen area with sponges, you’ll want to be sure to spray them with colloidal silver before and after each use.
  • And what about kitchen cutting boards? After washing them, spray them lightly with colloidal silver and let them air dry. A safe and germ-free cutting surface is your reward.
  • You can spray colloidal silver inside the refrigerator, and in the food storage bins, to prevent the spread of mold and bacteria.
  • You can also use colloidal silver routinely in your laundry during the final rinse cycle, to disinfect underclothing, sheets, dish rags, bath towels, baby diapers and more.
  • Or, simply spray colloidal silver onto hanging bath towels, wash cloths and dish rags and drying towels to help prevent souring and mildew.

Here’s another hot tip: Spray colloidal silver into home air ducts and vents to prevent them from becoming breeding sites for germs, molds and mildew.

For more ways to use colloidal silver around the house as a safe, powerful and non-toxic natural disinfectant, see:

But what about much more serious matters, such as fighting an active infection when medical help is unavailable? Well, it’s colloidal silver to the rescue, once again!

5. Treating mild to moderate food poisoning

If you’re involved in a survival situation where food has become scarce and the food you can obtain may be contaminated, you might end up with a nasty case of food poisoning.

Many of us have experienced cases of “stomach flu” over the years. In retrospect, it was probably a mild case of food poisoning such as that caused by E. coli, Listeria or even Salmonella. Thankfully, colloidal silver has been demonstrated in laboratory clinical studies as well as in numerous anecdotal reports to be effective against all three of these common and potentially deadly food poisoning bugs. You can learn more here:

Additional test tube studies have demonstrated that colloidal silver kills
many of the other pathogens behind food poisoning including: Campylabacter, Salmonella, E coli, Shigella, Listeria and Clostridium (what is often mislabeled as botulism).

Read how experienced colloidal silver users have utilized colloidal silver to cure their food poisoning cases, here:

Additionally, independent clinical research has also demonstrated colloidal silver to be effective against a variety of food poisoning pathogens. For example, the Harborne Research Foundation states:

“Several years ago we conducted some rather extensive evaluations of various protocols promising effective results against various pathogenic agents which cause ‘food poisoning’.

The one protocol, effective against ALL agents evaluated, was colloidal silver. A 5 ppm solution proved effective against all pathogens tested; yielding complete control within 6 to 8 minutes…regardless of concentration of the pathogenic agent.

Control was effected in some solutions as weak as one part of 5 ppm colloidal silver to 50,000 parts contaminated solution. Among the many agents tested were botulinum, campyobacter, salmonella and listeria (bacterial agents); and norwalk-like viruses and hepatitus A (viral agents).”

— Brooks Bradley, Harborne Research Foundation

And here’s a fascinating first-hand story of colloidal silver being used to cure a nasty case of food poisoning from eating contaminated honey:

The bottom line is that during a natural disaster, terrorist attack or other emergency situation your odds of contracting a nasty case of food poisoning grows exponentially, especially if fresh food is unavailable, refrigeration is out, and existing food supplies are becoming contaminated. Ending up with food poisoning in the midst of a prolonged crisis is no way to go. But thankfully, with colloidal silver you can avert that situation completely.

6. Treating eye and ear infections quickly, easily and effectively

In the case of a serious crisis, the normal medical help we all take for granted may be weeks away, or even completely unobtainable. And a nasty eye infection or ear infection isn’t going to wait on the doctor. Left untreated, a serious eye infection can lead to blindness, and a serious ear infection can lead to hearing loss.

Thankfully, colloidal silver works wonders – quickly and easily – for both eye and ear infections. Indeed, a few drops of colloidal silver placed directly into the eye or ear using an eye dropper can stop a burgeoning infection overnight.

Unlike conventional antibiotic drugs that target specific bacteria, but won’t work on fungal pathogens or viruses, colloidal silver is a broad spectrum all-natural infection-fighting agent that almost always works regardless of what kind of pathogen is causing the problem.

Experienced colloidal silver users say that less is more when treating eye or ear infections. That’s because the area you are trying to treat – whether they eye, or the ear – is very small. Three drops of colloidal silver in the affected eye, two or three times a day, or five drops of colloidal silver in the affected ear, two or three times a day, is generally all you need to stop an eye or ear infection in its tracks. For more in-depth information, see:

But colloidal silver can do much more than just treat things like food poisoning, or eye and ear infections. Indeed, for tens of thousands of people around the world, it’s their #1 all-natural “go to” resource for treating just about any kind of infection. For example…

7. Treating sinus infections

If you suffer from mild-to-moderate sinus infections from time-to-time, then during a prolonged crisis in which doctors and sinus medications might not be available, your sinus infection could turn into a potentially life-threatening bronchitis or pneumonia.

Fortunately, there are four basic ways to use colloidal silver to clear up a sinus infection quickly, easily and effectively:

  • One, you can use a simple eye dropper to drip the colloidal silver into your nostrils, allowing it to run down into your sinuses.
  • Two, you can put colloidal silver into a simply pump spray nasal bottle and spray it into your sinuses several times a day, while inhaling deeply to get the silver deep into the sinuses.
  • Three, you can add colloidal silver into the water in a neti pot, and rinse your sinuses with it several times a day.
  • Four, you can put colloidal silver into a nebulizer (a small device which turns liquids into an aerosol mist you can inhale) and sniff it up your nose into your sinuses for four or five minutes, several times a day.

Learn more here:

The bottom line is this: With colloidal silver in your corner, you’ll never again have to worry about being caught with a nasty sinus infection during an extended crisis when doctors and medicine may be completely unavailable.

8. Treating sore throats/strep infections

If you can’t get medical attention how will you treat dangerous sore throats and strep infections? Those infections can turn into something much worse, so you’ll need to treat them quickly, and there may be no access to antibiotics-which can have negative side effects anyway.

Different strains of the Streptococcus bacteria (strep throat bacteria) can cause Scarlet Fever, pneumonia, meningitis and impetigo. But, a study done at BYU showed that a colloidal silver solution was able to kill five different strains of the Streptococcus pathogen, at surprisingly low concentrations. And further research has shown it to be effective against drug-resistant forms of Streptococcus, as well.

Drinking an ounce or two of 10 ppm colloidal silver and gargling with 10 ppm colloidal silver three or four times a day, for as long as possible each time, can cure a strep throat infection if done consistently. Some experienced colloidal silver users tell me they simply carry a small pump spray bottle filled with 10 ppm colloidal silver when they have a sore throat, and spray their throat area frequently throughout the day.

As the famous cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Gerald Lemole, M.D. has stated on the Dr. Oz Show, “Colloidal silver is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral, and it’s really good stuff for if you feel an oncoming sore throat. So in the Lemole household, if you have a sore throat you’re getting colloidal silver sprayed in your throat first. That’s the first thing they do…It’s amazing to me that you can build wellness tools like this into your own lifestyle, which I never see in my own profession.”

To learn more, see the in-depth article “How My Family Beat Strep Throat with Colloidal Silver (and How You Can, Too!)” for information on dosages, plus clinical studies and personal results that will pretty much blow your mind.

9. Treating bug bites – including wasp, spider and scorpion bites

During an emergency or disaster scenario, whether you’re outdoors picking food in your garden, or rummaging around in your yard or local neighborhood searching for dwindling supplies, or even heading out into the wilderness to avoid the chaos in the city, there’s a good chance at some point in the process you’ll get bitten by bugs.

Thankfully, applying colloidal silver will dramatically ease the itch of spider or other bug bites. You can expect dramatic and quick relief simply by spraying colloidal silver directly onto the bites and allowing it to air dry, or moistening a cotton ball with colloidal silver and placing it on the bite, then covering it with a bandage to keep it in place.

Better yet is to use a good, high-quality colloidal silver gel or cream directly on the bite (see Germ-Busting Colloidal Silver Gels and Creams).

Or, you can mix some colloidal silver with bentonite clay powder to make a poultice; after applying the poultice to the bug bite, the clay will help to draw the poison out and the silver will help heal the skin irritation and inflammation, and prevent infection from setting in. (See video demonstration of how to make your own colloidal silver poultice, here.)

As an experienced colloidal silver user recently wrote to say about his friend who was severely bitten by sand flies:

“Eddy, a friend, came over one evening. He was in considerable distress with bites from sand flies to his hands and arms. He had been out the evening before doing some photography on the beach. His arms and hands were red and swollen from the bites. Apparently the bites are worse than bee stings and can take a couple of weeks to recover from!!!

I immediately soaked some ‘cotton wool’ with the micro-particle colloidal silver and applied it to the red areas. After a short time the stinging sensation subsided. I gave him some more colloidal silver to take home. He applied cotton wool soaked in the colloidal silver to the bites, using surgical tape to adhere it overnight.

In the morning the swollen areas had subsided and the redness and swelling was gone. He was truly impressed and very grateful for the immense relief. This may be one more application that colloidal silver can help, in terms of relieving great discomfort and suffering.”

— Kathyn, Singapore

Another colloidal silver user, Mike T. from Idaho, wrote in to say, “I have since used colloidal silver on tick bites. After making the ticks back out with dish soap, I applied silver directly on the bites (2 ticks) and the bumps disappeared after 2 applications of the silver.”

And another colloidal silver user wrote in to explain how effective she found colloidal silver to be against mosquito bites. She stated:

“I am a mosquito magnet. My husband and I go places and he gets no bites, but I get LOTS. So I carry a little bottle of colloidal silver in my pocket and put a drop of it onto the bites. Most never itch again. If some continue to itch, I give it 5 or 10 minutes and apply another dab of colloidal silver water.

Sometimes a bite will begin to itch again the next day and I simply dab on a little more colloidal silver water. I used to scratch the mosquito bites until they scabbed and left marks for weeks. I never have a problem, now.”

— M.H., Schnel

And a colloidal silver user also found that it works well for treating wasp bites. She wrote:

“A few days ago I was attacked by a nest of wasps. I was bit 4 times. In the past, I have ended up in the ER over bites.

But, all evening long I compressed the wasp bites by soaking some cotton balls in colloidal silver and then taping the wet cotton balls directly over the bite sites. I changed them out every hour or so with freshly soaked cotton balls.

I also took 1 tbsp of colloidal silver, orally, directly after the attack, and another tbsp before bed. And guess what? No welts, no balloon arms – barely noticeable the next day!”

Finally, a nice lady wrote in to explain how she used colloidal silver on a scorpion sting. She stated:

“I was barefoot and stepped on the scorpion in the dark. When I got the light on it was standing facing me with its tail raised as if to dare me to try that again. I was able to capture it and looked it up on the internet, to find a photo identifying it as the most dangerous scorpion in Arizona and recommendation to go to the ER.

Pain, swelling and redness at the bite site began to spread. But at that particular time I was getting ready to move and had turned off my phone and sold the car. So, having no way to get to emergency care, I put colloidal silver in a dish big enough to fit my toes in, settled down to Facebook, and sat the rest of the night with the front part of my foot dangled in the colloidal silver.

Just as a precaution, I emptied the dish twice during the night and refilled it with fresh silver. By morning the spreading pain, swelling and redness was gone. The sting continued healing on its own with no further treatment and did not leave a scar.”

So there you have it. If you get a scorpion sting and you’ve got no way to get to an emergency care facility, this nifty little idea might buy you the time you need, or even save you from an evening of growing pain and inflammation.

Finally, there’s spider bites. When I was visiting the Island of St. John some years back, during the off-season, our room in the highly rated hotel we stayed at was full of tiny spiders. Apparently, when guests are infrequent, the rooms aren’t cleaned as often, and the spiders move in. The little critters didn’t bother my wife, for some reason. But they sure liked me. I’d wake up in the morning with spider bites from my ankles to my knees.

It was awful, because while they were very small bites, they turned bright red and itched like crazy. So I broke out the colloidal silver we’d brought, and began spraying it on the spider bites whenever they’d start to itch, allowing it to air dry before dressing.

And not only was the relief immediate, but it was fairly long-lasting, as well – often, the itching didn’t start again for four or five hours. And when it did, I simply repeated the process.

Most importantly, recent anecdotal accounts demonstrate that colloidal silver can help heal even serious spider bites, such as those from Brown Recluse Spiders.

For many victims of this potentially deadly spider, the skin itself begins to necrotize, meaning it begins to rot right on your body. Learn how experienced colloidal silver users have solved the problem, here: Ease Discomfort From Bug Bites & Stings with Colloidal Silver!

10. Treating sunburns and burns

During a disaster or emergency in which you might get more outdoor exposure than usual, it’s quite possible you or a family member or other loved one will end up with a nasty sunburn. Or, you might get burned trying to rig a makeshift stove or cooker. After all, when we get hungry and tired, we might also get a little careless.

But if you’ve got a serious sunburn or burn, and the doctor’s offices and drug stores are all closed, what do you do?

Thankfully, colloidal silver is the fast, simple solution, once again. In fact, the #1 drug used in hospital burn centers around the world is quite literally based on silver. It’s called silver sulfadiazine cream, and it’s used in burn centers to not only heal burnt skin, but to help prevent burnt and necrotizing skin from becoming infected as well – after all, most burn victims aren’t killed by the burns, but by the subsequent infections that set in on the burnt skin. In fact, a 1973 study published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy states:

“657 different types of bacteria from 22 different bacterial species were exposed to silver sulfadiazine. All strains were inhibited by levels which can easily be obtained topically. Strains resistant to sulfadiazine or multiple antibiotics were sensitive to silver sulfadiazine.”

Unfortunately, silver sulfadiazine cream (aka Silvadene) is a prescription only product. So you’d have to have a doctor’s prescription to obtain some for use on sunburns or burns.

But here’s the good news: You can quite easily make your own silver-based sunburn relief salve, and your own silver-based burn cream. And you won’t need a doctor’s prescription at all. Just check out the following resources for specific “how to” instructions:

Now that’s the kind of information – and do-it-yourself skill set – every serious prepper needs to have during a prolonged emergency.

11. Treating colds, flu, allergies and upper respiratory infections

Of course, colloidal silver can also be used to treat colds, flu, upper respiratory infections (including bronchitis and pneumonia) and even mild allergies. After all, the last thing you need during a serious emergency or disaster situation is a bad cold or a nasty case of the flu, or any kind of upper respiratory problem. But if such a thing should happen, colloidal silver can be there for you.

As one long-time colloidal silver user recently wrote to say:

“I have put a few ounces in my humidifier/vaporizer at night to sanitize the air and breathe colloidal silver into my lungs to help break up chest congestion. If I feel bronchitis coming on, I will also use the humidifier/vaporizer during the day and increase my internal dose up to 2 ounces, 3 times a day.”

— (Diane L. Erie, MI)

As my old friend Harold H. from Barstow, CA attests:

“When my new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator arrived I was down for the count, having caught some kind of virus. While my head was plugged up and body aching, I hurriedly created my first batch of Colloidal Silver.

I took 4 ounces the first day and felt 50% better in less than 8 hours! The second, day I again took 4 ounces; incredibly I felt the same overwhelming results. By the third day, I had risen from my bed and returned to work!

The massive amount of energy I now receive from taking an ounce a day has brought new life to this old 53 year old man! If I had never purchased your video I would never have known about this wonderful elixir.

Thank you so much for your research, newsletters and providing me with the best Colloidal Silver Generator on the planet! I am driving my friends crazy telling them about it!”

You can learn even more about using colloidal silver to help stop colds, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia and other upper respiratory infections in the following articles:

As you can see, for this single purpose alone it would be worth having colloidal silver on hand during a crisis or emergency situation when good doctor care might not be available and store shelves (if stores are even open) might be stripped bare of over-the-counter cold and flu remedies.

12. Protecting your pets from infection and disease

Many preppers – including myself – are lifelong pet lovers. Of course pets can indeed fit in with a well-rounded prepper program. Dogs, for example, act as great “alarms” against potential trespassers. If it’s the right breed, they can also be wonderful for home protection. Some breeds can even be trained for hunting. And regardless of breed, they’re just plain good company.

Many preppers also raise domestic farm animals (cows, chickens, goats) for food. But what if your pets or farm animals need medical help during a prolonged state of emergency in which veterinary offices are closed and vet supplies limited?

Because pets and other animals can be often be treated similarly to humans, you can use colloidal silver on their cuts, scrapes and bruises to help accelerate healing and prevent or stop infection. Whenever one of your animals gets sick, you can also add colloidal silver to their water bowl, or use a simple eyedropper or plastic syringe to administer colloidal silver to them orally. Colloidal silver can even be mixed into your pet’s food if you have a pet that doesn’t like drinking it orally.

As one lady who owns a farm wrote to say, colloidal silver can be a Godsend for animals in need. She stated:

“Our dog tangled with a bear. Its eye was bloody – we sprayed the eye with colloidal silver – within minutes she was prancing around the barn as if nothing had ever happened. The cow had problems. We put colloidal silver in her water – whatever it was is gone!!! The goat had pink eye – colloidal silver took care of it.”

— Gramma Bea Riley, Riley Farms

Another individual wrote:

“By the way, I also use the colloidal silver water on my animals. For example, I have several domestic felines. In the rough-housing and playing, they sometimes get nasty cuts, abrasions and wounds.

Whenever that occurs, these felines are treated with 7-10 ppm colloidal silver water that I make with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge. I, also, periodically dose them with an eye dropper or two of colloidal silver water to protect their gums and teeth. And if any of the felines get the ‘sniffles,’ they immediately get doses of colloidal silver water dispensed through an eye dropper.

One of my felines came down with stomach cancer and would spew blood all over her chest. This started about a year and one-half ago.

I treated her daily with Colloidal Silver Water 15-21 ppm that I made, dispensed through an eye-dropper with at least 6 eye-dropper doses usually six to eight times daily. I also gave her 6 eyedropper doses of undiluted Flor*Essence tea (i.e., Essiac Tea) before she ate, about six to eight times daily. Within three months, she was healed, and is now as rowdy and playful as ever.”

— John S., Jamesville, NY

As you can see, colloidal silver can be a pet owner’s best friend, especially during a serious emergency or disaster crisis situation in which proper veterinary care might be unavailable.

13. Potential help against germ warfare or biological weapons attack

If you don’t live in a bubble, you’re likely aware of the potential for the use of germ warfare by bad guys during a terror attack. After the 9-11 terror attacks on the U.S., envelopes containing a deadly strain of anthrax were sent to key government personnel through the mail, resulting in the deaths of five Americans and serious, life-threatening infections for 17 others.

At that same time, terrorist plans to use small, unobtrusive devices called “venturis” to help spread germ warfare agents throughout major cities came to light. The “venturi” device is attached to the outside of a car. As the car is driven down the road, the “venturi” sucks air into one end, and disperses clouds of deadly germ warfare agents out the other.

In other words, a “venture” is designed to disperse clouds of deadly germ warfare agents into the air while the terrorist is simply driving down busy city streets. This could easily infect literally tens of thousands of people in the course of a single afternoon, and ultimately causing complete chaos and shut-down of major cities.

While we may hope and pray a germ warfare attack like that would never happen in this country, we know that it can. But would colloidal silver be helpful in such a case?

The experts aren’t telling us the answer to that question. But we do have some strong indications that colloidal silver will indeed work. For example, former CIA microbiologist, Larry Wayne Harris, was asked if there were any natural substances that could protect the population against germ warfare agents, he answered: “The only natural substance I know of that is effective against these microbes is colloidal silver. I tested that myself when I was with the CIA and found it effective against both anthrax and the bubonic plague pathogens.”

Harris conducted further studies in his own lab which you can read about in the article Colloidal Silver and Biological (Germ) Warfare.

According to Harris, if you’re already taking colloidal silver when a germ warfare attack takes place, you’ll enjoy automatic built-in resistance. But experts say taking colloidal silver after the fact will have little effect unless you nebulize it.

Nebulizing colloidal silver – which simply means breathing an atomized mist of colloidal silver into your lungs – allows the silver to be quickly and easily carried into your blood stream and from there into the body’s cells and tissues. You can view a short “how to” video on nebulizing colloidal silver, and learn more about how the experts say to do it (including dosage information) in the article, Using Colloidal Silver with a Nebulizer.

Another important thing to note is that if you have a good supply of doctor’s surgical masks on hand (which you should, if you’re a serious prepper) you can spray one with colloidal silver and allow it to air dry, instantly turning the mask into an antimicrobial facemask, par excellence. This could provide tremendous protection against germ warfare agents if they were being sprayed into the air in your area. And they’re just plain helpful for going out in public during the course of a crisis when cold and flu viruses might be spreading, as well. You can learn more about turning your doctor’s face masks into antimicrobial face masks in the article Silver-Coated Doctor’s Face Masks Kill Germs.

Make Your Own High-Quality Colloidal Silver for Pennies!

Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver GeneratorTypical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.

But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about 36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.

Compared to typical health food store prices, your first two one-quart batches literally pay for the entire cost of your new generator! Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!

In fact, by making your own high-quality colloidal silver with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll be as close to having FREE colloidal silver as you can get, and for the rest of your life!

You’ll never have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices again!

The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is now the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator. Here are just a few reasons why you should own one…

  • It pays for itself after your very first batch or two – your total cost to make your first one-quart batch is about 36 cents, compared to the $240 you’d pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
  • Safe, simple to operate…No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time!

  • Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer. Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm (or even larger), and you’ll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is the very best there is! Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to maybe 30% or 40% with many health food store brands!
  • Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb – you won’t even see a blip on your electric bill!
  • Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
  • Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances – you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!
