Clinical Medicine Professor Explains Benefits of Silver to Colleagues (Blows Big Pharma Scare Tactics Out of the Water)
By guest author Tony Isaacs
In a 2009 clinical paper published in the prestigious Letters in Applied Microbiology, Professor of Medical Microbiology Valerie Edwards-Jones of Manchester Metropolitan University School of Healthcare Science wrote to her fellow doctors, scientists and healthcare professionals about the astonishing number of uses for silver in three specific areas:
• Personal care
• Health care
Professor Edwards-Jones clinical letter, titled “The Benefits of Silver in Hygiene, Personal Care and Healthcare,” has since been cited some 105 times by researchers in other clinical studies.
I bring up her clinical paper, her top-notch medical credentials as well as the prestigious journal her paper was published in, for one specific reason:
All too many “pop medicine” sites like WebMD.com and MayoClinic.com (which are written largely to herd the general public towards Big Pharma’s drugs), do nothing but denigrate the use of antimicrobial silver, calling it both “dangerous” and “ineffective.”
Dangerous and Ineffective?
But as Professor Edward-Jones points out in the Abstract to her paper, nothing could be further from the truth. As she states to her audience of fellow scientists and medical professionals:
“Silver has been used for centuries as an antimicrobial agent to reduce bioburden and prevent infection.
Its usage diminished when antibiotics were introduced but remained one of the most popular agents for wound infections, especially in burned patients.
Increasing evidence of improved antimicrobial activity of nanoparticles of silver and possible dual immunomodulatory effects are exciting.”
In other words, Professor Edwards-Jones acknowledges that silver has been used safely for centuries to “reduce bioburden” (i.e., kill pathogens in and on the body) and to prevent infection.
She points out that while the use of silver in medicine and healthcare diminished after the advent of modern prescription antibiotic drugs, it has nevertheless always remained popular in medicine for treating wound infections, particularly in burn victims.
And she states that recent improvements in the antimicrobial activity of silver, as well as new evidence of silver’s beneficial effects on the immune system, are exciting developments.
More Surprising Admissions
In the Abstract of her published letter to fellow doctors, scientists and healthcare professionals, Professor Edward-Jones also acknowledges the growing worldwide use of silver in “a range of hygiene and healthcare applications.”
Surprisingly, Professor Edwards-Jones states in her Abstract that it’s becoming increasingly evident that silver also has “dual immunomodulatory effects,” meaning it appears to aid in immunity in several ways. We’ll take a longer look at that in just a moment.
She concludes the Abstract of her letter to clinical and medical professionals by stating that because silver remains active “in solution” (meaning it remains active against pathogens in a variety of liquids) it can easily and effectively be used as a preservative in commercial products.
Finally, she states her belief that the use of silver as a preservative in commercial products is a beneficial and desirable development due to the “increasing incidence of allergic reactions” to many of today’s modern, chemical-laden preservatives.
More Great Info on Silver and Its Uses
Keeping firmly in mind that Professor Edwards-Jones is writing for a professional scientific, medical and clinical audience interested in learning the truth about silver and its myriad of antimicrobial qualities, let’s take a look at some of her additional findings:
In the Introduction to her paper, she tells her colleagues that the use of silver as a broad‐spectrum antimicrobial agent in health and medicine has been well documented in scientific literature dating back to 1953.
Since that date, she notes, there have been “over 1000 referred journal articles, with increasing numbers focusing on applications in hygiene, personal care and healthcare.”
These, she says, range from antimicrobial silver coatings on hard surfaces to colloidal silver being used as a spray for the prevention and treatment of sore throats!
(Can you hear the heads exploding yet over at WebMD and MayoClinic.com? They certainly did when TV’s Dr. Oz and his guest, the world-famous cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Gerald Lemole recommended colloidal silver for exactly that same purpose several years ago.)
Professor Edwards-Jones further informs her audience that the modern-day use of silver for medical and commercial purposes has been encouraged by silver’s natural antimicrobial properties. She then writes of silver:
“The natural antimicrobial properties of silver, the very limited examples of resistance and sensitization, and the emerging problems of prevention and treatment of multiple antibiotic–resistant bacterial strains such as MRSA have encouraged its use.”
In other words, the modern-day use of antimicrobial silver for medical and commercial purposes is largely being driven by the fact that there’s very little resistance or sensitization to silver among pathogens (i.e., they don’t easily grow resistant to it, as they do with antibiotic drugs), and, in fact, even drug-resistant pathogens are easily killed by silver.
Silver Ions Are the Active, Infection-Fighting Form
In the “Mode of Action of Silver” section of her clinical paper, Professor Edwards-Jones explains to her medical and scientific colleagues that silver can be found in four oxidative states (Ag0, Ag+, Ag++ and Ag+++). She explains that the first two states are more bioactive than the latter two.
Her paper goes on to say that the antimicrobial action of silver is dependent upon the bioavailability of the silver ion (Ag+) — which, I might add, is the same “specie” of silver that can easily be made at home using a home colloidal silver generator.
In other words, the Professor confirms to her colleagues what other little-known but important clinical studies have recently proven, i.e., the silver ion (i.e., ionic silver) is the active, infection-fighting form of silver, and that all other forms of silver are completely dependent upon their ability to shed silver ions in the presence of bodily fluids in order to work. No silver ions, no healing!
(See here, here, here and here for additional documentation that the silver ion is the active, infection-fighting “specie” of silver, and that metallic silver — often erroneously sold as “true colloidal silver”) and silver compounds only work against pathogens to the extent they shed silver ions.)
Silver Use in Personal Care Products Growing
Under the section titled “Personal Care,” Professor Edwards-Jones paper explained that healthy human skin is colonized by numerous bacteria that can cause body odor.
That’s why Ag+ silver ion nanoparticles, says the Professor, are now being utilized worldwide in a broad range of commercial products, including:
- foot powders
- shoe insoles
…as well as in a wide range of fabrics used for pajamas, briefs, other undergarments and pillows.
And this is true.
However, I’d hasten to add that while silver is indeed now being used worldwide in commercial products for its profound natural antimicrobial and disinfectant qualities, this is no longer the case in the United States.
Why? Because misguided radical environmental groups have convinced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that antimicrobial silver is a “pesticide” that can “harm the environment,” and therefore its use in consumer products needs to be heavily regulated.
That’s ridiculous, of course, because silver comes from the environment in the first place.
And in the entirety of human history silver has never caused harm to the environment, with the exception of a single incident decades ago in which tons of a chemically-produced form of silver — silver halide from film production — was illegally dumped into San Francisco Bay, causing a temporary disruption in the population of clams, mussels and oysters.
Nevertheless, in spite of silver’s overall proven safety in the environment, commercial products utilizing antimicrobial silver to be sold in the U.S. must first be EPA-approved as “pesticidal products” after going through a mind-boggling array of environmental studies and tests.
In the U.S., the huge burden of added costs for these environmental studies and tests has put a dramatic damper on the number of commercial products utilizing antimicrobial silver being brought to market.
While such products abound throughout the EU, Asia and other parts of the world, it’s getting harder and harder to find commercial products that offer the antimicrobial protection of silver in the United States. To learn more on this topic, see:
- Nanosilver – Nothing New, and Not Harmful to the Environment in Over 120 Years of Use
- How Environmentalists Are Destroying the U.S. Market for Antimicrobial Silver
- In Defense of Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles: It’s Time to Kick Some Environmentalist Butt
So while Professor Edwards-Jones’ contentions are correct for the European Union, Asia and the rest of the world, it’s becoming increasingly difficult in the “land of the free and the home of the brave” to obtain consumer products that utilize the protection of antimicrobial silver.
Hygiene and Infection-Prevention
In the section of Professor Edwards-Jones paper titled “Hygiene and Prevention of Infection in Solid Surfaces,” the Professor discusses how increasing concern over antibiotic-resistant bacteria was resulting in silver being incorporated into numerous hard surfaces (hospital countertops, for example).
The professor also points out that antimicrobial silver has been gradually replacing traditional chemicals such as chlorine and bromine in water purification systems, particularly after outbreaks of Legionnaires Disease.
Indeed, as the good professor states, many hospital water purification systems now incorporate silver into their mechanisms — this, largely because of the failure of chlorine and bromine in such systems to stop the Legionnaires pathogen from spreading.
The professor goes on to tell her audience that other hygienic uses of nanosilver include:
- washing machine linings
- toilet seats
Finally, she also points out that Samsung Electronics now makes extensive use of antimicrobial silver in their computer keyboards in order to help prevent the buildup and inadvertent spread of microbes.
(Again, while this is largely true worldwide, the U.S. is a key exception. Indeed, several years ago Samsung was fined $205,000 by the EPA for selling computer keyboards infused with silver nanoparticles, with the EPA claiming Samsung had failed to register those products as “pesticides” — this even though the only purpose of using silver in their keyboards is to help prevent the growth and spread of potentially dangerous bacteria!)

Is Silver Toxic?
In the section of Professor Edwards-Jones paper on “Toxicity,” she wrote:
“Reported cases of silver toxicity are limited, and after 50 years of intensive use in burns, silver toxicity is insignificant compared to the benefits of use and in comparison with other antimicrobials.”
Bam! That’s what we’ve been saying for over two decades now. Indeed, Professor Edwards-Jones is merely giving second witness to what researchers from the Dartmouth University Toxic Metals Program revealed many years ago, when they stated:
“Trace amounts of silver are in the bodies of all humans and animals. We normally take in between 70 and 88 micrograms of silver a day, half of that amount from our diet.
Humans have evolved with efficient methods of dealing with that intake, however. Over 99 percent is readily excreted from the body.
Is silver harmful to humans? Unlike other metals such as lead and mercury, silver is not toxic to humans and is not known to cause cancer, reproductive or neurological damage, or other chronic adverse effects.”
— Dartmouth University Toxic Metals Research Program
Professor Edwards-Jones paper did advise that the uncontrolled release of large quantities of silver into the water supply from wastewater treatment plants and accumulation in waste products should be monitored because it may have a secondary effect on animals and plants that result in long‐term effects, such as affecting the food chain.
However, the paper added that “It would be expected that these effects would have become apparent by now, as silver has been used for centuries.”
In the “Discussion” section, the professor’s paper reiterated many of the uses and actions of silver, stating:
“Exciting developments in personal care, hygiene and healthcare offer major opportunities for development of a range of applications arising from the latest research into the antimicrobial properties of silver.
The limited resistance, sensitization and toxicity considering the frequency of use have offered a new solution to problems of reducing bioburden across a range of industries.
Silver also offers a broad‐spectrum antimicrobial agent with the added benefits of slow and sustained release in the form of nanocrystalline or nanoparticles of silver.”
In other words, Professor Edwards-Jones is recommending the use of silver in commercial products, on countertops, and for many other applications, as a means of “reducing bioburden across a range of industries.”
That means she believes the use of silver is the key to helping reduce microbial contamination and preventing the spread of infections in hospitals, medical centers, food processing plants, and other key industries where increasing levels of microbial contamination are being detected.
HealthCare Uses of Silver
In the “Healthcare Applications” section of her paper, Professor Edwards-Jones discusses the expanding use of silver to prevent infection in medical devices including burn and wound dressings, catheters and endotracheal tubes.
She notes studies which found that the use of silver decreased the number of dressing changes in wound patients, as well as the need for antibiotic drugs.
She further states that the use of silver-coated Foley catheters for the prevention of urinary tract infection in patients with short-term catheterization were “reviewed by the Health Protection Agency rapid review panel (of the UK government)” and were “awarded a level 1 recommendation” — apparently the highest recommendation in terms of the amount of medical evidence backing the claim!
Professor Edwards-Jones further informs her colleagues that the somewhat higher costs for silver-impregnated medical devices, bandages, hospital surfaces, disinfectants and related products is more than offset by the savings, giving an example where a typical hospital can save more than $235,000 a year on the cost of treating urinary tract infections alone, simply by preventing them from happening in the first place, with silver.
To learn more about the growing trend in medicine to incorporate silver into medical devices in order to reduce microbial bio-burdens and related infections, see:
Immune System Benefits
The good professor goes on to point out that in clinical studies antimicrobial silver has displayed “dual immunomodulatory benefits,” meaning it can favorably affect the functioning of the immune system in several ways.
She cites one study, for example, which demonstrated that silver inhibits “matrix metalloproteases” (enzymes that break down proteins) which are known to “prevent wound healing.” The result is that silver ions promoted increased wound healing when the metalloproteases present in a wound would otherwise have prevented it.
Silver ions were also demonstrated, says the professor, to “modulate the immune system in a beneficial way,” for example, by suppressing pro-inflammatory cytokines that can worsen disease conditions.
In other words, in severe wounds the immune system can go into overdrive, producing excessive amounts of cytokines that increase inflammation, which in turn, actually slows the healing process. But silver “modulates” (i.e., softens or tempers) the process so healing can proceed unimpeded.
If you’d like to learn more about silver’s profound and clinically-demonstrated immune-boosting properties, considering reading the following article which delves into the subject more deeply than Professor Edwards-Jones did in her paper:
Professor Edwards-Jones’ Conclusions
Finally, in the “Conclusions” section of her paper, Professor Edwards-Jones stated:
“Silver has already proved itself as a powerful inorganic compound, and can if used correctly, prevent infection.
As a broad‐spectrum agent, it kills a wide range of micro‐organisms in low levels without associated toxicity.”
Her paper also noted the very large potential for silver to help provide uncontaminated food and water to millions of people throughout the developing world, where microbial contamination is often endemic.

The Proven Effectiveness and Safety of Colloidal Silver
As you can plainly see from the clinical paper by Professor Edwards-Jones, silver is a powerful anti-bacterial agent as well as a very effective agent against single-cell pathogens in general.
As South African Pathologist Dr. Peter Price has written:
“Colloidal silver is indeed a miracle substance. I have been in medical practice for 40 years and have never come across any other substance that has the safety and non-toxicity of colloidal silver with no side effects and a myriad of potential benefits”
Here’s another interesting quote on colloidal silver usage, this one from Dr. Jonathan Wright, M.D., a graduate of Harvard, as well as the University of Michigan Medical School, and who now runs the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington state:
“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…
…Beginning in the 1970s, several independent researchers found that silver ions easily destroy Candida and other fungi. But it wasn’t until a pilot study during the mid- 1990s that included human patients suffering from terminal AIDS that medical researchers established solid evidence showing just how quick and effective silver ions can be in the treatment of Candida as well as HIV.
In this study, nine individuals who were near death were divided into two subgroups. One group suffered from HIV and a terrible Candida infection. The other group suffered from both HIV and an extreme form of malnutrition (known as Wasting Syndrome).
The researchers found that in both groups the colloidal silver was capable of killing pathogens and purging the bloodstream of germ defenses in order to restore the immune system.“
What’s more, Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D., a board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School, states:
“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.“
Furthermore, as Dr. Ron Surowitz, D.O., M.D., former head of the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association has stated:
“Sometimes a treatment can be worse than the illness, but not in the case of Colloidal Silver.
I have my patients spray or swish Colloidal Silver in their mouths from one to three times daily, depending on the severity of their condition…or, in a dose of one quarter to one teaspoon, and even up to one tablespoon, one to three times daily for situations that are more problematic.
I also have them use it in small amounts daily as a preventative…It’s interesting how many of my patients improve with the use of Colloidal Silver. It enhances the immune system where other antibiotics cause yeast overgrowth…
…[As an example] one patient had persistent yeast infections. Having had no success with both prescription and non-prescription treatments, she called me, at her wit’s end.
I suggested that she try a douche of two teaspoons of Colloidal Silver in a quart of water. Three days later she was evaluated in my office. The symptoms of her yeast infection had vanished, and there was no visible sign of infection.“
Finally, as Herbert Slavin, M.D., director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine in Lauderhill, Florida has stated:
“Few things in life are as cut-and-dried as the fact that silver is completely safe when used within normal limits.“
As you can see from Professor Edwards-Jones clinical letter to doctors, researchers, and other medical and research professionals in the journal, Letters in Applied Microbiology, silver is not the scary bogey-man it’s sometimes portrayed to be in pop-culture “medical” sites like WebMD.com and MayoClinic.com.
It seems clear that the more closely tied an online organization is to Big Pharma, the more shrill their disingenuous claims against antimicrobial silver become.
As New York Times columnist Virginia Heffernaan revealed in February 4, 2011, regarding WebMD.com:
“…WebMD is synonymous with Big Pharma Shilling. A February 2010 investigation into WebMD’s relationship with drug maker Eli Lilly by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa confirmed the suspicions of longtime WebMD users.
With the site’s (admitted) connections to pharmaceutical and other companies, WebMD has become permeated with pseudomedicine and subtle misinformation.
Because of the way WebMD frames health information commercially, using the meretricious voice of a pharmaceutical rep, I now recommend that anyone except advertising executives whose job entails monitoring product placement actually block WebMD.
It’s not only a waste of time, but it’s also a disorder in and of itself — one that preys on the fear and vulnerability of its users to sell them half-truths and, eventually, pills.”
And as the PostBulletin.com website pointed out about Mayo Clinic, which frequently denigrates the use of colloidal silver on their website using highly disingenuous arguments:
“An unprecedented disclosure of payments from drug companies shows that $3.07 million for consulting was paid in 2,388 payments to Rochester-based Mayo Clinic researchers, doctors and hospitals during five months last year… while Johns Hopkins Hospital employees took in a mere $4,627.
Hundreds of Mayo Clinic doctors are receiving millions from drug companies and medical device makers for private consulting every year, while many others are paid one-third of the royalties generated by their work.
In addition to the consulting payments [for Mayo Clinic doctors] during those five months, a total of 68 payments totaling $3.01 million were made to Mayo Clinic itself for research, according to the database.”
Could there be any bias against safe, natural substances like antimicrobial silver at Mayo Clinic, when their doctors are raking in millions of dollars annually from Big Pharma for “consulting” and the clinic itself is doing likewise?
And could that gargantuan payola be the reason for their long-standing attacks on colloidal silver and other natural health products?
Furthermore, BizJournals.com revealed in April 2017 that Mayo Clinic CEO Dr. John Noseworthy was nominated to sit on the board of the Big Pharma giant Merck:
“Pharmaceutical giant Merck this week nominated Dr. John Noseworthy, the CEO of Mayo Clinic, to its board of directors, a step that comes with a higher profile, but also some potential pitfalls.
Noseworthy will receive $110,000 in compensation and $170,000 in deferred stock per year from Merck as a director.”
As MPRNews.org stated of the nomination:
“Supporters of these ties say bringing people who run world renowned medical centers like Mayo Clinic together with the pharmaceutical industry can improve medicine.
Mayo’s own Board of Trustees is interested in having more of its leaders serve in similar roles in the future. The trustees believe that these memberships will only expand the experience and insights of clinic employees.”
In other words, like WebMD.com, Mayo Clinic and Big Pharma are essentially joined at the hips.
And when MayoClinic.com, WebMD.com and other “pop medicine” sites denigrate the use of antimicrobial silver products like safe, natural colloidal silver, while simultaneously promoting the use of Big Pharma’s antibiotic drugs, one can’t help wonder how much their incestuous ties with antibiotic-drug producers like pharmaceutical giant Merck are influencing those attacks.
(To learn more, see natural health author Steve Barwick’s previous article, Colloidal Silver versus Mayo Clinic, WebMD and Other Naysayers.)
Thankfully, there are still honest and decent medical professionals like Professor Edwards-Jones who are willing to buck the trend to denigrate the use of antimicrobial silver and point out its many growing benefits, even if only to fellow medical and clinical colleagues.

Where to Find Colloidal Silver
If you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America. It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because colloidal silver works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, it has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.
The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.)
Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 16,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
What’s more, manufacturers promoting the latest faddish colloidal silver product often charge far more per bottle – sometimes $35 to $50 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.
And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for these commercial colloidal silver products at health food stores because colloidal silver does indeed heal infections and prevent the spread of germs and disease faster and better than any other natural supplement on the planet!
So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:
Make Your Own High-Quality
Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
As I mentioned, typical 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! Here’s a short pictorial demonstrating how astonishingly easy it is to use a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge:
- 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!
Just read through some of the testimonials below to see for yourself how you’ll save literally thousands of dollars per year by making your own colloidal silver with your brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge!
Here’s what one customer recently wrote to tell us:
“Owning a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge has given us the luxury of being able to use high-quality colloidal silver any time we need it. And we never have to worry about the costs because it only costs a few pennies per quart to make! It is without a doubt the single-best money-saving appliance in my entire house!
Best of all, the machine is very easy to use, and easy to store. I was concerned about ease-of-use, but my fears were unfounded. After I got mine and used it, I immediately bought one and sent it to my 83 year old mom, and she uses it regularly as well.
Now that I have a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can use colloidal silver for everything — disinfecting the kitchen sinks, countertops, and the cutting board… spraying the toilet bowls, and the bathroom countertops and sinks… spraying it on my toothbrush to prevent bacterial growth…rinsing my mouth with it to prevent cavities and gum disease…you name it.
I even put it in the laundry rinse cycle when I do my linens, towels and kitchen rags, so I don’t have to wash them as frequently. It really keeps them fresh, and there’s never any mold or mildew anywhere in our house.
I also put some in the cat’s water bowl each day, and the dog’s too. We use it in the bathtub for skin problems. And of course we drink it when our tummies are queasy, or when we feel a cold or flu coming on. We also gargle with it in order to get rid of sore throats, and sniff it up our noses to get rid of sinus problems.
My husband even sprays it on his hair in the mornings, and has completely eliminated his lifelong dandruff problem. And he sprays a little bit in his eyes from time to time, and now has no more recurrent problems with sties.”
— K. Sullivan, NM
And here’s what another happy customer wrote to say about the tremendous savings she’s achieved by no longer having to purchase her colloidal silver through health food stores:
“We make a quart of colloidal silver at least once a week with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge. I finally sat down and figured out how much this machine has been saving us. By making our own colloidal silver we’ve saved $11,503.20 this year alone, compared to the cost of colloidal silver at our local health food store.
The cost for colloidal silver at our local health food store is $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But with my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can make eight times that amount (i.e., a full quart) for about 35 cents total cost.
If I were to purchase a quart of colloidal silver at the health food store, which would be eight of those tiny, four-ounce bottles, the cost would be a whopping $240 (i.e., 8 x $30 = $240) compared to the 35 cents I now spend to make a full quart!
Here’s the breakdown of our costs to make a full quart of colloidal silver with our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator: It costs us about a dollar for a gallon of steam-distilled water at Walmart. So a quart of the steam-distilled water costs about 25 cents. And I estimate we use maybe a nickel’s worth of electricity and maybe another nickel’s worth of silver from the silver rods for every one-quart batch of colloidal silver we make. So that’s 35 cents a quart, all told, for each quart of micro-particle colloidal silver we make!
And frankly, considering how long the .999 fine silver rods have lasted (over a year and a half, so far, for the most recent set), I think it’s probably even cheaper than that. But it’s the lifetime savings we’ve experienced that’s just mind-boggling to me.
For example, we’ve had our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver unit for nearly five years now. And as I mentioned we make one quart per week, and we spend about 35 cents a week on making colloidal silver.
This means we save about $239.65 a week by not having to purchase a quart’s worth of colloidal silver at our local health food store. So do the math: In just one month, the savings is $958.60…in one year, the savings is $11,503.20…and in five years we’ve saved approximately $57,516.00!
When you put pencil to paper and figure it out, it definitely takes you by surprise. You just think ‘No way. I must have multiplied that wrong.’
But it’s true. The savings is legitimately well over $11,000 a year over health food store prices for colloidal silver, if you make and use a quart of colloidal silver a week like we do! And we reap that incredible savings from the very reasonable $250 investment we made in purchasing our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
In their advertising literature, The Silver Edge says the unit completely pays for itself after your first couple of one-quart batches. But really, that’s quite an understatement when you realize the true extent of your savings!
Of course, once you start making your own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you don’t really think about how much you’re saving compared to health food store prices, because it just becomes a normal part of your everyday life. But the savings is nevertheless astonishing when you reflect on it.
What’s especially nice is being able to produce a significantly higher-quality colloidal silver than what’s generally available to the public through health food stores, especially at such a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost.”
— Marie Wilkey, SC
The Bottom Line…
With a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll never again have to pay exorbitant health food store or internet vendor prices for high-quality colloidal silver!
Indeed, your first batch or two will indeed completely pay for the entire cost of your generator, compared to health food store prices!
What’s more, you’ll be able to give colloidal silver away FREE to family members, friends and neighbors, because you’ll be making it — literally — for only a few pennies per batch!
