Colloidal Silver for Urinary Tract Infections and Bladder Infections
Bladder infections and UTIs (i.e., urinary tract infections) can be stubborn and painful, and can often require prescription antibiotic drugs to cure.
Thankfully, there are a number of natural health products that can also aid the body in healing stubborn UTIs or bladder infections, and colloidal silver is one of them.
Here’s what some folks are saying they experienced when they tried colloidal silver for stubborn UTIs or bladder infections…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
A lot of people have reported good results using colloidal silver to help the body defeat stubborn urinary tract infections (UTI).
Here are a couple of examples from the Testimonials page of The Silver Edge website.
“My elderly mother has struggled with urinary tract infections for years and has had to take antibiotics over and over, but still it came right back. She drank a quart of colloidal silver water over a couple of week’s time.
That was more than a year ago and she has been free of major episodes of urinary tract infections since that time. We are still amazed. I am anxious to learn more about ways to use the water from my generator to fight infections.”
– J R., Boise, Idaho
My comment: If she drank a quart of colloidal silver over a two week period, that would be a little more than two ounces per day to heal the UTI. That’s a pretty small amount of colloidal silver to heal a UTI.
Other women have told me as many as six to eight ounces per day, in divided doses throughout the day, were necessary, for short periods of time such as three to five days. But everybody’s different. It’s called biological individuality. So sometimes experimenting a bit with dosage is what turns the tide. If a smaller dosage doesn’t work, try a larger dosage, for a short period of time. Here’s another personal account I recently received:
“Here’s my experience with colloidal silver …About 2 years ago, I discovered I had a urinary tract infection. I hadn’t had one since college (and I’m now 50). I used to get them almost every semester in college, so I am VERY familiar with the symptoms, the infection’s progression, and how long it takes to get relief from the pain and urgency.
Since I do everything I can to avoid antibiotics, I drank an 8-oz glass of colloidal silver twice a day for two weeks. With antibiotics, the infection is generally gone in about a week. With the silver, it took two weeks, but the infection did indeed go away WITHOUT the use of antibiotics.”
And here’s a testimonial from a gentleman whose 80+ year old father had a stroke, and as a result had to wear a catheter to urinate. The catheter would become infected, resulting in urinary tract infections, and the elderly gentleman had to take antibiotics, until they quit working for him. Here’s the story:
“I wanted to let you know, that when my father was still living, he was getting quite a few urinary infections and the doctors just kept on giving him more antibiotics that were not working.
Well, my mother, an amazing woman, and took it upon herself to treat my father and his urinary infection with colloidal silver. She started giving him 1 oz. a day with his breakfast and would spray the catheter after giving him a shower and wouldn’t you know it, his urinary infections went away and he felt much better not having to go through the pain of that awful infection.
There isn’t a person on the face of this earth that could ever change my mind on the truly amazing benefits of using Colloidal Silver. I am a firm believer in trying to live healthy in such an unhealthy world and Colloidal Silver is a huge part in my attempt to live a healthy life.”
– Dale P, WA
As you can see, those are quite different successful experiences in which people used colloidal silver to heal urinary tract infections. But they used significantly different dosage levels.
Again, that’s because everybody is biologically different. There’s no way to say, “This dosage will be perfect for you,” just because it might have been perfect for someone else. I wish it were different. But I have to tell you the truth.
Here’s another personal testimonial I received:
“I have had two urinary tract infections in 16 years. Both times I took eight ounces per day of my homemade colloidal silver, for about five days, and the infections disappeared.”
And here’s a much longer testimonial I came across recently on the internet:
“I had been trying for about a week to cure a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) on my own with lots of cranberry juice and water. The morning that I woke up with severe back pain I decided it was time to go to the doctor. I went to see Dr. Shiva in San Antonio where he did a urinalysis and said that I didn’t have any infection.
He then had me do various range of motion exercises to determine my back injury which had my back screaming in pain. He took X-rays and said that I had muscle spasms in my back. He gave me a pain shot and prescriptions for muscle relaxers and pain pills. $198.00 later I was at home drugged up and in severe pain.
This was on a Friday. On Monday, still in pain, still experiencing worsening UTI symptoms, I went to see Dr. Harry Hernandez in San Antonio. He tested me and found a severe UTI. He gave me the generic drug which he said worked about 75% of the time and was about $100.00 cheaper. He told me to come back in 10 days and he would retest me, free of charge.
I went back 10 days later and still had traces of infection. He gave me 4 pills of the name brand drug, but I still had to buy 4 more, through a prescription, they were $10.00 each, but he said that this one would knock it out for sure. Relieved that I didn’t have to worry about that anymore, me and my husband took off to Mississippi to visit relatives. About four days into our trip I was horrified to start feeling the symptoms reappear.
“I had a bottle of Colloidal Silver that my sister had given me which I had been using as a topical agent only, as I had been leery of taking it orally. But at this point I was getting desperate. I took one capful and another capful that night. The next morning I didn’t notice any more symptoms.
I now take one capful a day and am leaving on another trip in the morning. I feel much safer knowing that I have my Silver with me.”
– Tina G., San Antonio, Texas
And here’s another one, this time, a bladder infection:
“I had a TERRIBLE bladder infection. Fever, and lots of pain. I took 4 ounces of silver, and again 2 hours later, another 4 ounces. Within 3 hours I was 50% better, and by morning I was 100% normal.
This is not like my past experiences with antibiotics in which I’d be sick for a week or more. So happy I have a colloidal silver generator so I can make my own colloidal silver!”
And here’s a testimonial from a lady whose husband has a very unique bladder condition that predisposes him to infections. Take a look at how they handle it with colloidal silver:
“In 1993 my husband had cancer of the urinary bladder and prostrate. The surgeons who performed the surgery to remove the cancer made an internal artificial bladder from the ascending colon with a valve and an opening to the bladder on the right side of his abdomen.
This internal artificial bladder is called an Indiana Pouch. It has to be catheterized every 4-6 hours to empty it. For the past 16 years there have been continuous infections in the Indiana Pouch with my husband needing to take antibiotics for each infection. Maybe a week to two weeks would be infection free. Every method of keeping the pouch clear of bacteria, etc. has been tried. The bug in the pouch was E. coli.
At times my husband was hospitalized with such severe infections needing to be given antibiotics in his veins. After so many antibiotics the bacteria had become resistant to almost all available drugs.
Colloidal Silver to the rescue! My husband takes 1 tablespoon of 10 ppm twice a day by mouth. I instill 2 ounces of colloidal silver into the pouch in the morning and at bedtime. Thus the cure of the Indiana Pouch infections.
This process has been used for months thereby eliminating the need for antibiotics. We could never afford to buy the amount of colloidal silver that is used daily to prevent infection of the pouch. Every three days I make two quarts of colloidal silver for my husband’s use.
The Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator has been a life saver. It’s easy to use, making a reliable amount of micro-particle silver at an economical cost.”
– G.E., Jackson, LA
And here’s what a 90-year old gentleman who used to have frequent bladder infections has to say about his colloidal silver usage:
“I have used the colloidal silver for 25 years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since I have been taking colloidal silver orally. I take approximately ten parts per million of the solution. When I need it, I take a swallow two to three times per day. Highly recommend it to other people.”
– T. Loudermilk, NC
So you can see that people have had good results, but with decidedly different dosage regimens. That means colloidal silver users have to experiment a little with dosage to see what works best for them. The general idea is to start out with relatively small dosages to see if it helps the body overcome the infection. And increase the dosage if the smaller dosages does not work.
Brief Word of Warning
Always keep in mind that experts emphasize if colloidal silver does not work for you fairly quickly (i.e., within a week or two, see above testimonials), or if you have to keep drinking large amounts (i.e., over an ounce a day) in order to keep any kind of ongoing infection at bay, that is a sign that colloidal silver is not the right supplement to aid your body in defeating that particular infection.
Ingesting large amounts of colloidal silver on a regular daily basis, over long periods of time (months, or years), can, and ultimately will result in argyric skin-staining.
That’s because, while the human body can quite easily absorb, utilize and excrete relatively small daily amounts of colloidal silver, or even occasional larger amounts, it is not designed to handle large amounts taken daily for long periods of time, such as months or years on end.
Indeed, if colloidal silver usage becomes abusive, sooner or later the body’s system of elimination for silver will become overwhelmed with the excessive quantities of silver, and will begin storing silver in the tissues.
Eventually, if the overly-large daily amounts of silver are continually ingested, that silver will be pushed out to the skin, where upon exposure to sunlight it will essentially tarnish, “tattooing” the skin a grayish blue color (i.e., argyric skin-staining).

When Colloidal Silver Doesn’t Work
For a Urinary Tract or Bladder Infection
As an aside, I have an adult family member (female) who tends to get one or two urinary tract infections a year. Several times she’s tried following the colloidal silver protocols, taking up to eight ounces of colloidal silver per day, for a maximum of three or four days in a row, but to no avail. It simply didn’t work for her at all, though is seems to work for most UTI sufferers, based on hundreds of testimonials I’ve seen over the past 20 years since I first began researching and writing about colloidal silver.
Why doesn’t it work for her? I don’t know. Maybe her urinary tract is being infected with a silver-resistant pathogen. It’s hard to say why colloidal silver works for so many people for an issue like a UTI or a bladder infection, and then for some reason it doesn’t work at all for someone else.
At any rate, my female family member uses a powerful natural antimicrobial product called Nutribiotics GSE. The “GSE stands for grapefruit seed extract. That’s not the same as “grape seed extract,” which is a totally different substance. This is an extract from grapefruit seeds, and not from grapes.
Anyway, Nutribiotics GSE works wonders for her UTIs. She uses the liquid form (the same product also comes in capsules, but they don’t work as well as the liquid for her) and she simply puts 20 drops of the Nutribiotics GSE into an 8 ounce glass of cranberry juice. Works every time for her.
And I’ve heard from other ladies who tell me they experience very quick results when they use Nutribiotics GSE and D-Mannose powder together, putting 20 drops of Nutribiotics GSE into a glassful of grapefruit juice or cranberry juice, then adding a heaping tablespoonful of D-Mannose powder and stirring it up before drinking it, up to twice a day for up to five or six days if necessary.
The bottom line, as I mentioned earlier, is that everyone’s body is different. It’s called biological individuality. UTIs can be stubborn, and can be caused by a number of different pathogens, some of which may be very sensitive to silver, and others (especially a small handful of subspecies) may be silver-resistant.
For example, while many UTIs are caused by the E. coli pathogen, medical science knows that different strains of E. coli can have different levels of sensitivity to silver. In general, silver-resistance is very rare, and silver helps the body knock out UTIs and bladder infections in record time. But as we’ve seen above, it doesn’t always work for everybody.
So those are some options I’ve heard about. Please keep in mind that nothing I’ve said here should be taken as “prescriptive” in nature. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a reporter.
And always remember that when there’s very stubborn health issue, sometimes a good local naturopathic doctor (i.e., a natural health doctor) can work wonders, as they’ve seen just about everything and pretty much know what works and what won’t for stubborn conditions.
And while anyone in their right mind would prefer to help their body heal infections and other health issues naturally, sometimes there’s just no choice but to go to the doctor and do what he tells you. I love natural healing, which to me means helping the body heal itself through nutritional means. But I refuse to be an alternative medicine martyr. If my natural health arsenal fails me, I go to the doctor. I suggest you do the same.
How to Make Your Own
Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver
Whether you use colloidal silver to help your body get rid of an existing UTI or bladder infection naturally, or as a daily prophylactic to help ward off colds, flu and other upper respiratory infections (learn more, here)…or for its many other healing and immune-boosting benefits (see here)…one thing you know for sure is that it’s quite expensive to buy it from health food stores.
Indeed, in most major health food stores colloidal silver usually costs between $25 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.
But owning a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge allows you to make your own superior-quality colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart. Yes, I said 36 cents per QUART.
In fact, compared to health food store prices for colloidal silver, your very first one-quart batch of micro-particle colloidal silver virtually pays for the entire cost your new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
You see, a full quart of colloidal silver consists of eight of those tiny four-ounce bottles you can buy at health food stores for around $30 a bottle. That means you’d have to pay up to $240 for a full quart of colloidal silver in a health food store.
But you can spend about that same amount of money on a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge – the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator – and make quart after quart after quart of superior-quality colloidal silver for the rest of your life, for about 36 cents apiece!
Do you know of any other product that pays for itself virtually the very first time you use it?
It’s quite literally as close as you can come to enjoying free colloidal silver for the rest of your life, because you’re making it yourself for the same tiny cost the big colloidal silver manufacturers make it for before distributing it to health food stores where it’s marked up by a whopping 60,000%!
Making your own high-quality colloidal silver this inexpensively allows you to use colloidal silver any time you need, or even give it away to family members, friends or loved ones who need it, without giving the cost a second thought.
Sub-Microscopic Silver Particle Size
Makes It Up to 1,000x More Bio-Available!
What’s more, the tiny, sub-microscopic silver particles produced by this amazing breakthrough in colloidal silver-making technology are as low as .8 nm in size. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer.
Yet most conventional health food store brands of colloidal silver contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm in size (see here for photographic proof of the size difference between micro-particle colloidal silver and conventional colloidal silver particles found in health food store brands.)
This is critically important to understand, because even the FDA admits that the smaller the silver particles are, the more bio-available they are, meaning the body is better able to absorb them, utilize them, and afterwards safely excrete them.
Plus, it’s now known that tiny silver micro-particles are able to kill off entire colonies of pathogens with far greater effectiveness than conventional-sized colloidal silver particles.
That’s because of the “zombie effect” described in this recent article about brand new research out of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. As you’ll see, the effectiveness of ultra-small, sub-microscopic silver particles against colonies of disease-causing microbes is absolutely astonishing.
The bottom line is that the tiny, submicroscopic silver particles produced by a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge are up to 1,000 times more bio-available than conventional silver particles.
Indeed, the human body is able to absorb 90-100% of the tiny silver micro-particles, sending them throughout the body to kill pathogens, and then excreting them with ease, afterwards, thanks to their small size.
But the human body is only able to absorb and utilize as little as 20% to 40% of the silver particles found in many health food store brands of colloidal silver which contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm or even larger. Clearly, making your own micro-particle colloidal silver is hands-down the smartest way to go.
Perhaps that’s why so many thousands upon thousands of people absolutely rave over the effectiveness of the colloidal silver made with their Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, as you can see at this web page full of real-life colloidal silver success stories.
