Colloidal Silver Helps Tame Diverticulitis

Diverticulitis and Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver Helps Tame Diverticulitis

by Steve Barwick, author, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual

Diverticulitis is considered to be a polymicrobial infection, meaning there are almost always more than one kind of pathogen involved.

That’s because, in diverticulitis, both gram negative and gram positive pathogens from the colon escape through perforations and move into the peritoneal cavity. From there they ultimately infect and inflame the diverticula (small pouches which can develop in the wall of the colon).

The end result can be pain in the lower abdomen, cramping, bloating, vomiting, nausea, fevers and chills, abdominal tenderness, constipation (or, sometimes, diarrhea) and occasionally, rectal bleeding.

Is Colloidal Silver Useful for Diverticulitis?

I haven’t seen any clinical literature at all on using colloidal silver for diverticulitis, though there are lots of anecdotal accounts (some of which we’ll examine in a moment), and there have been successful laboratory “test tube” studies demonstrating nanosilver to be effective against the pathogens most frequently involved in diverticulitis.

For example, when lab-testing nanosilver against the gram-positive pathogen, Enterococcus faecalis (which is often implicated in diverticulitis), nanosilver was found to work against the pathogen even better than sodium hypochlorite (i.e., household bleach).

In fact, the researchers stated, “This study revealed that nanosilver in a remarkably lower concentration would possess the same bactericidal effect as 5.25% NaOCl [bleach].” They further state that “a 70-fold concentration of NaOCl was required to achieve an antibacterial activity equal to Ag NPs.”

In other words, in their lab “test tube” study, it took 70 times more bleach to kill Enterococcus faecalis than it took to kill the same pathogen with nanosilver!

A gram-negative pathogen often implicated in diverticulitis is E. coli. Of course, it’s long been know that in lab tests, silver has been demonstrated to be extremely effective against E. coli, as you can see, here.

So yes, colloidal silver has indeed been demonstrated in lab studies to kill both gram- positive and gram-negative bacteria, such as those involved in diverticulitis. And subsequent studies have borne this out (see here, here and here).

Testimonials: Colloidal Silver and Diverticulitis

One testimonial from the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook stated:

“Silver is a ‘miracle’ cure…healed my diverticulitis with NO other antibiotics…have also used it for food poisoning, colds, sore throat, cuts after shaving, earaches, Brown recluse spider bites – that and raw honey! And so much more.”

Another lady responded:

“I’m using it for diverticulitus also with good results. My dogs & cats drink it daily, & the wild opossum!”

And the original respondent wrote back:

“With the diverticulitis I also did a drink 2 times a day with favorite organic fruit juice: 1/4-1/3 cup aloe vera juice and powder slippery elm. I had to go on a 10 day (supposed to do 2 wks) clear liquid only diet first, doing at least 1/2 cup of silver daily…. I’ve learned to make our own now cuz I was buying near gallon. Yes our dogs get it too!!”

Those aren’t particularly much help, in terms of dosage. But it does show at least two people have successfully used colloidal silver for their diverticulitis.

Here’s a longer testimonial a lady wrote about using colloidal silver for diverticulitis:

“Just wanted to tell you my story. I have diverticulosis so have flare ups (diverticulitis). I hate the prescriptions, Cipro and Flagyl. They make me feel like a zombie and takes 48hrs after the last tablets to feel back to normal.

Having met two people who are avid proponents of colloidal silver, one, Skip Wayland who sent me to your website. Yes we purchased your generator and are very happy with it.

“I am 61 yrs., otherwise blessed with good health, not on any medications of any kind, just take a plant based multi vitamin and a magnesium/calcium.

Christmas Eve 2016 (before I purchased your Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator) I had a flare up. My choices were urgent care or find some colloidal silver. I did NOT want the prescription meds, so I finally found two stores, both 45 mins away, that carry colloidal silver. So, after a mad dash to San Antonio I had my colloidal silver!

“Longish story short, it worked. The bottle said 2 tsp, 3 times a day for one week, then 1 tsp 3 times a day the second week. I took the first dose at bedtime and woke to the pain diminished to a verybearable level. I am a convert!

I did not continue to take the colloidal silver after the two weeks and am doing great. The articles you post are so helpful, I’m still learning the varied uses thanks to you and your site.

My husband and I were already in the process of cleaning up our eating habits, we had already changed the oils we cook with.

This last episode made us clean out the cabinets of all processed/sugar infested seasonings/foods, and bad flours, and eating what we call a modified Paleo. The thing is now I know if I have another flare up I have my generator here and can make a fresh batch if need be.”

Another person posted online:

“After my $10,000 hospital bill for a bad case of diverticulitis, I turned to my colloidal silver, whenever I feel the slightest symptom coming on.

One time I was very busy and I ignored those symptoms until it was too late and I was in a full-blown diverticulitis attack fever.

I called the doctor, because it was a Friday, he gave me my horrible antibiotics, my husband brought them home.

I said, Not until I’ve given my silver a chance to work. By Monday most of my symptoms were gone and by mid-week, It cleared it up without the antibiotics, which are still sitting in my refrigerator.”


An individual on the WebMD site stated:

“Diverticulitis. Better within hours. I used Pico Silver from Dr Carolyn Dean.”

And a commenter on the website stated:

“I have found a ‘big gun’ for my diverticulitis. When the grapefruit seed extract and slippery elm isn’t enough, and I start feeling the aching stomach signal that an attack is imminent, I have had perfect success with Colloidal Silver.

Take two teaspoons and relief is within minutes. Thank God for relief from pain, because I’m a wuss and want to crawl in a hole when I’m in pain.

Hope this will help others who have suffered as I have.”

The problem with using colloidal silver for this condition, as I understand it, is getting the colloidal silver down into the little diverticula “pouches” that get food trapped in them, and then become inflamed as bacteria colonize the food.

As these diverticula “pouches” become inflamed, they more or less close up, so apparently it’s difficult to get the colloidal silver where it’s most needed. But colloidal silver has nevertheless been working for many people suffering from diverticulitis.

The folks at this web page have an interesting protocol for using colloidal mixed into pure aloe vera juice for diverticulitis. It makes a lot of sense to me, but I have to admit I’ve never had an opportunity to try it and thus have no personal experience with it. They write:


This appears to be the same protocol recommended by my friend, Robert Scott Bell, of The Robert Scott Bell Show. Bell is a long-time proponent of Sovereign Silver brand colloidal silver.

The Heal Your Life website states, in an article titled “25 Foods to Eat to Heal Diverticulitis”:

“Colloidal silver is very effective when treating diverticulitis or any other infection. Colloidal silver, known as nature`s antibiotic, effectively kills bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, even at times when antibiotics fail. Additionally, colloidal silver reduces inflammation and repairs injured tissue.”

The Holistic Health Herbalist website states, in an article titled “Diverticulitis Causes and How to Treat it Naturally”:

“Colloidal silver is extremely helpful during a flare up and can help fight off infection.”

And The Best Years in Life website states, in an article titled “Natural Relief for Diverticulitis”:

“Colloidal silver is very effective when treating diverticulitis or any other infection. Colloidal silver, ‘nature’s antibiotic’ effectively kills bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, even at times when antibiotics fail. Additionally, colloidal silver reduces inflammation and repairs injured tissue.”

As an aside, a LOT of people apparently use a product called Nutribiotics GSE (grapefruit seed extract) for diverticulitis. My wife has used this product for severe urinary tract infections (when even colloidal silver didn’t work) and it knocked it out in a matter of days. So it just might be helpful for diverticulitis, as well. Many folks swear by it.

My wife uses the liquid Nutribiotics GSE rather than the capsules, which don’t seem to work as well for her as the liquid. But she puts 20 drops into a glassful of cranberry juice and drinks it down, twice a day for a few days. And bang! No more infection.

C:\Users\Barwick\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Word\44373021_s.jpgImportant Addendum: 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:

Step 4 How To Make Colloidal Silver

  • 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!

Customer Testimonials

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.”

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 .9999 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!
