Fight Peak Flu Season With Colloidal Silver!

Family Posing with Dog Outdoors - Fight Peak Flu Season With Colloidal Silver! Colloidal silver is one of the best ways to help fight off the flu at the peak of winter flu season, hopefully, so you never get it in the first place. After all, colloidal silver is known by many experienced users to be one of nature’s safest and most effective all-around immune-boosting and infection-fighting substances.

As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”…sometimes, it’s simply best not to wait until the flu strikes to start taking colloidal silver.

But can colloidal silver be used effectively to fight off the flu if you’ve already caught it?

Here’s what you need to know…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

According to the CDC, flu season can begin as early as October and can last all the way through May, but it reaches its peak between December-February.

And if there’s one nutritional supplement that should be in everybody’s natural health care arsenal to help fight off peak flu season, it’s definitely colloidal silver.

As I noted above, the old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is true.

It’s much harder to help the body heal a raging infection than it is to stop the infection from taking place altogether. Sometimes, it’s simply best not to wait until the flu strikes to start taking colloidal silver.

During cold and flu season, consider taking small amounts of colloidal silver every day so there’s always a bit of silver circulating in your body to help fight off viruses, bacteria and fungal pathogens before they can colonize and spread. Here’s why:

The Ground-Breaking Research of Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D.

This idea is based on the ground-breaking research of Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of the best-selling book, The Body Electric, who discovered during the course of his research into electrically-generated silver at Syracuse Medical University that the lower one’s bodily silver levels are, the more sickness and disease one is likely to have.

Dr. Becker wrote:

“While analyzing hair samples and questioning the parties involved, I noticed the correlation between low silver levels and sickness.

People who showed low silver levels in their hair analysis were frequently sick. They seemed to have innumerable colds, flu, fevers, and various other sickness.

I believe that a silver deficiency may be the key to the improper function of the immune system.

Other doctors and famous researchers who agree with the assertion that low silver levels in the body can result in lowered immunity against infection include Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. of the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington State, Dr. Joel D. Wallach, M.D., N.D., author of Rare Earths, Forbidden Cures, and Dr. Kent Holtorf, M.D., of the Holtorf Medical Group, among many others.

How Much Colloidal Silver to Take Prophylactically

Finding your baseline dosage is your first step to flu prevention.

Of course, the dosage varies from person to person. It depends upon a number of factors, including bodyweight, overall health, and even antioxidant levels.

I personally like the Silver Safety Guideline published by the Silver Safety Council, which I discuss below.

They have a very conservative method for calculating your maximum daily safe dosage level for a lifetime of colloidal silver usage.

“Baseline dosage” means the dosage you can safely take every single day for the rest of your life with no chance of ending up with argyria (i.e., silver deposits in the body).

Here’s what they recommend…

The Silver Safety Council formula for determining your maximum safe daily nutritional supplement baseline dosage is as follows:

Calculation of Dosage According to Silver Safety CouncilFirst, multiply your bodyweight by 12. And then divide that total by the ppm of the colloidal silver solution you’re using.

This will tell you how many DROPS (i.e., from an eyedropper) of colloidal silver you can take each day, safely, for a lifetime, without fear of ending up with argyria (i.e., skin-staining).

For example, if you’re 125 pounds, and you’re using a 10 ppm colloidal silver solution, you’d multiply 12 x 125 = 1,500. Then divide 1,500 by 10 (ppm), which is 150.

So at a bodyweight of 125 pounds, you can safely take 150 drops of colloidal silver per day, for your entire life, according to the Silver Safety Council.

That’s about a teaspoon and a half per day for a 125-pound person. You can perform the above calculation using your own bodyweight, and the ppm of whatever colloidal silver product you’re using. It’s very simple.

Once you’ve found out how many drops of colloidal silver you can take each day, for a lifetime, on a nutritional supplement basis, here’s a link to a web page where you can easily convert drops to teaspoons.

Once you’ve calculated your daily baseline dosage, that’s the amount you can take each day in order to help prevent flu infections throughout the cold and flu season. According to the Silver Safety Council, you can actually take that much, daily, all year round if you want.

The key is to have a small amount of silver circulating in your body at all times, which is said to help your body neutralize viruses before they can begin the early stages of viral replication.

Please note: I’m not “prescribing” here, I’m reporting. I always tell my readers to be sure their colloidal silver usage is paired with wisdom, common sense and discretion.

Successful Experiences from Readers

Many of my readers are experienced colloidal silver users and have shared their accounts of using colloidal silver in a preventive way to great success:

Marvin K., from Oregon, wrote to say:

“Our family has been using colloidal silver for awhile…about 3 years for myself. I no longer have continual cold/flu symptoms, but instead am healthier than most of the others at work, even those who I used to notice never get sick! …I very carefully started with low doses and increased to where I now use one gulp once or twice a day.”

And as Jacque C. wrote to say:

“I went for a checkup at the VA this week and the Doc wanted me to get a flu shot. I told him I take a flu shot every morning; a one oz. jigger of colloidal silver in my coffee, and I very seldom catch a cold or flu. But back when I took the vaccine I’d be sick as a dog for a couple of weeks afterwards about every time, so I don’t do those anymore.”

As Lorraine S. wrote to tell me:

“I’ve not had a cold or flu since I started using colloidal silver, and I’ve been around so many people who were sick…Thank you for continuing to provide information on colloidal silver. I believe it has kept me healthy.”

Karen M. wrote to say:

“We just bought our second colloidal silver machine. We gave the first one to daughter. We still can’t believe our daughter has not gotten sick once this year after 8 years of being sick every winter, all winter.

She can now play outside in cold weather. She comes and asks for the colloidal silver if she starts feeling sick. We use the nasal sprayer for her sinuses and daily give her colloidal silver by mouth. It is amazing. The entire family has been flu free.

We own a small diner and have people coming and going all day every day. We keep sharing the colloidal silver with all who will take it. We feel blessed to have found your machine.”

And as Nancy S., from Topeka, KS, recently wrote:

“My husband and I drink a shot glass (about 1 oz) of colloidal silver every night before bed. We’ve been doing this for about 4 years now. Neither one of us has been sick since. And I should mention, we’ve been around people who were sick and didn’t catch anything.”

And as registered nurse, Sherri, recently wrote me:

“I take 30cc of Colloidal Silver daily. I do not get the flu, or colds. If I do feel that I’m getting congested, I’ll take 60cc Colloidal Silver daily, and the signs and symptoms of the cold or flu goes away in a couple days.”

And as D.V., from Pleasant Grove, Utah, wrote to say:

“I started using colloidal silver about 15 years ago. I take some almost every day. And when I feel any cold of flu symptoms coming on I increase the dosage each day to several teaspoons and have not developed any colds or flu in all these years.”

Using Colloidal Silver
When Already You Have the Flu

During times of infection, such as a cold or flu, many experienced colloidal silver users will increase their dosage to as much as four or five times their daily nutritional supplement baseline dosage. Sometimes more, depending upon need and severity of symptoms.

So, for example, if you’re a 125-pound person who would normally take a teaspoon and a half full of colloidal silver per day for nutritional supplement purposes, you might increase that to a teaspoon and a half four or even five times a day, for up to a week or ten days, if necessary, when battling an active case of flu.

That’s just a general rule-of-thumb. As I said before, I’m not “prescribing” it for anyone. I’m just reporting on what thousands of other colloidal silver users have told me they do as I’ve conducted research for my book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, which is the world’s best-selling book on colloidal silver and its usage.

While modern medical science hasn’t been able to come up with anything to get rid of a cold or flu once it’s gotten started, oftentimes nutritional intervention with colloidal silver usage can bring tremendous relief, and even help dramatically shorten the duration of a cold or flu bug.

First, if you have a nasty cold or flu that’s really got you down, you can consider putting some colloidal silver into a cool mist vaporizer and let it run steadily in the room where you’re resting.

By breathing in the silver-laden mist, you’ll often find dramatic relief for your chest, lungs, and nasal passages.

As colloidal silver user Diane L., from Erie, MI wrote some time back:

“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.”

Not only that, but by using colloidal silver in a vaporizer or humidifier, the colloidal silver-laden mist will spread throughout the room on the ambient air and help kill germs and viruses on contact surfaces, thus helping prevent other family members from picking up the infection.

So this technique gives you a two-fold protection: It helps relieve cold and flu symptoms, and helps keep the bug from spreading throughout your household.

Now some people just add a few ounces of colloidal silver to the water in the holding tank of their humidifier or vaporizer. But others choose to fill the entire tank with colloidal silver, particularly if they’re battling a particularly nasty cold, flu or bronchitis infection.

Of course, the holding tank of a cool mist vaporizer can hold several quarts to a gallon of water. So if you’re using colloidal silver in the tank, instead of water, you’ll need an inexpensive way of generating that much colloidal silver.

So here’s a short video showing you how to use a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from to make extra-large batches of high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver, for those times when you need to have plenty on hand.

Finally, many people find dramatic relief from colds, flu or bronchitis simply by taking a few teaspoons full of colloidal silver each day.

As colloidal silver user W.E. Quirein recently wrote:

“My own experience has been phenomenal.

I had bronchitis for about 3 weeks when my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator arrived. I made a batch and started taking it.

Within two days I didn’t have any bronchitis symptoms.

I was only taking a teaspoon per day. I was amazed.”

Of course, other people may need more colloidal silver than that to help stop a persistent or very nasty cold, flu or bronchitis. But the point is, it really works!

As 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!”

As you can see, people have been successful using colloidal silver to help fend off colds and flu during the winter season, but have also experienced dramatic healing from colloidal silver even when they’ve waited until they were already sick to take it.

Stubborn Cases of Cold, Flu or Bronchitis

If you read my article from last week, “Nebulizing Colloidal Silver into the Lungs to Stop Infection“, you already know that if things are really bad, and you feel the cold or flu is getting the best of you, or even turning into bronchitis, you might want to try inhaling colloidal silver directly into the lungs using a simple device originally designed for asthmatics, called a nebulizer.

A nebulizer differs significantly from a cool mist vaporizer or humidifier in that when it runs, it micro-atomizes any liquid (such as colloidal silver) placed into its small holding tank, turning it into a micro-fine mist that’s far easier for the lungs to absorb.

This allows you to inhale a more concentrated dose of the liquid directly into the lungs.

While I never recommend nebulizing colloidal silver directly into the lungs on a daily basis for long periods of time, most experts say it’s perfectly safe to use several times daily for a short period of time (i.e., for several days in a row) – particularly for helping obtain dramatic relief from upper respiratory infections.

But be sure to read the article at the link above for several important warnings and contraindications.

If All Else Fails…

Finally, if all else fails when trying to stop a cold or flu from becoming a full-fledged nuisance, here’s an interesting idea from Anders Sultan, a well-known colloidal silver expert, and manufacturer of the famous Ionosil brand colloidal silver, from Sweden.

Anders says when ingesting colloidal silver orally for colds or flu, sometimes you have to add a little bit of whiskey, vodka or red wine to your colloidal silver in order to help it break through the fatty cell wall that surrounds many cold or flu viruses. He explains:

“There are hundreds of viruses that can give you a cold. And there are certain viruses that surround themselves with fatty cells. These are known as lipid viruses. The influenza virus, for example, is a lipid virus.

And unfortunately, these viruses can tolerate colloidal silver fairly well. This is because the water-based silver does not easily penetrate the lipid barrier of the virus, known as a lipid bi-layer envelope.

However, if you mix equal parts colloidal silver with whisky, vodka or even red wine – and squeeze some fresh lime or lemon juice in too – you have a recipe that will take care of lipid virus infections very efficiently.

Both the alcohol and the acid from the citrus will do its part of dissolving the lipid-based defense system of the virus.

Take a teaspoon every five to ten minutes for a couple of hours – as soon as you feel you have caught something – and the cold or influenza will usually be gone in a matter of hours.

Keep it under your tongue for a minute and the sublingual part of your mouth will absorb the silver directly into your bloodstream.

Small doses at this frequency helps assure that your body will have a good supply of active silver to fight viruses, as the silver ions are removed by the kidneys in a matter of minutes.”

So there you have a number of interesting and effective ways to colloidal silver to help stave off, mitigate or completely defeat a cold or flu.

Taking a “Vacation” Away from
Colloidal Silver Usage, Afterwards

As I’ve mentioned in several previous articles, whenever I’ve been sick with an unexpected or stubborn infection such as a nasty cold or flu, and I’ve chosen to taken larger-than-normal amounts of colloidal silver, afterwards I always try to take a short “vacation” away from colloidal silver consumption for a few days to a week or more before returning to my normal daily baseline dosage of colloidal silver.

And during the course of that “vacation” away from colloidal silver usage, I always start drinking lots of fresh, pure water in order to help flush any excess or accumulated silver particles out of my body through the liver, kidneys and sweat glands.

I also start taking specific supplements known to help the liver and kidneys clear any excess silver particles and prevent oxidative stress inside the body (such as Vitamin E at 400 IU, N-acetyl-cysteine at 500 mg. and maybe some selenium at 200 mcg., as suggested by Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. in his articles on colloidal silver usage).

Finally, in case the high doses of colloidal silver I’ve been taking have killed off any of the beneficial digestive microbes in my intestinal tract, I also start taking a good probiotic supplement with a full “grid” of active cultures of beneficial digestive microbes (such as Dr. Langer’s Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic supplement, or NOW brands GR8dophilus with eight probiotic strains), in order to help my body re-establish it’s internal micro-flora.

Or, sometimes I’ll just start eating a good, high-quality yogurt or kefir product that contains large numbers of active beneficial bacterial cultures. And I might do this daily for several weeks.

Only after doing those three things, usually for a good week to 10 days or more after ceasing to take the larger colloidal silver dosages, do I return to my normal daily adult baseline nutritional supplement dosage of colloidal silver.

In Conclusion…

Whether you use small amounts of colloidal silver orally to boost immunity and spur the body’s natural defenses or use any of the tips above to help you and your family fight off the nasty peak of the winter flu season…

… you’ll find this amazingly effective natural substance to be an indispensable part of your winter-time nutritional supplement arsenal.

Colloidal Silver for Pennies

Woman using Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver EdgeIf you don’t already have access to safe, natural colloidal silver, it can be purchased at just about any local health food store, or through a number of online sources including

However, it’s quite literally one of the most expensive and heavily marked-up natural supplements in existence.

Health food store owners, for example, often charge as much as $20-$30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. Yet the cost to manufacture four ounces of colloidal silver is about 12 cents.

Yes, I said twelve cents.

Of course, people are willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver, since it’s safe and natural, and works so well against infections and related diseases.

But thankfully, there’s no need to pay such exorbitant prices for colloidal silver, when you can make your own, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for about 36 cents a quart.

And since you can make all of the high-quality colloidal silver yourself, the whole idea of having to buy bottle after bottle of an expensive silver-based mouthwash or toothpaste for the rest of your life is just ludicrous.

You can make it yourself for its actual cost, and altogether skip the sky-high mark-ups charged by health food stores!

If you’re interested in learning how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver at home, for about 36 cents a quart, here are some additional short articles you might want to take a look at:
