Is Silver Clinically Effective Against Leukemia?
Is Silver Clinically Effective Against Leukemia?
by Steve Barwick, author, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual
About 15 years ago I had a chance encounter with businesswoman who told me her adult brother was dying of leukemia, which is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood.
She mentioned that he was suffering from severe multiple infections due to the leukemia, and his doctors could no longer help him.
So I told her a little bit about the nutritional supplement, colloidal silver, and explained that many people use it to stop infections — even very serious infections. I then directed her to some informational resources.
Afterwards, she purchased some colloidal silver for her brother from a local health food store and took it to him. A month later she contacted me, extremely excited, claiming that the colloidal silver had completely reversed her brother’s downward spiral.
“It helped get rid of the infections?” I asked.
“Better than that,” she said, “He thinks it got rid of his leukemia altogether. He hasn’t felt this good in years.”
Unfortunately, over the course of time I lost touch with her. So I don’t know whether or not her brother’s improvement was permanent, or if the leukemia really did go into remission.
But the news was exciting because, at the time, silver was not really known for its anti-cancer or anti-leukemic qualities.
Indeed, while that experience took place some 15 years ago, most of the clinical studies demonstrating silver to be effective against cancer cells have been conducted within the past 10 years, with some of the very best studies being conducted over the past five years.
An Interesting Testimonial
Nevertheless, since that chance encounter, I’ve kept my eyes and ears open for additional information on this topic, and have kept a growing file on it.
For example, last year I received this interesting message about colloidal silver and leukemia from a member of the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook. She wrote:
“My step father cured his leukemia with colloidal silver… He was diagnosed by his doctor of having leukemia and the doctor wanted to start the traditional treatment. But instead he chose to take colloidal silver. He learned from his brother how to make his own colloidal silver at home. Next checkup at the doctor he discovered he no longer had leukemia…He’s 86 now and this happened probably 6 years ago. He takes his colloidal silver daily and is healthy as a horse.”
And here’s another anecdotal account, clipped from the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook:
In case it’s difficult to see in print, the above account reads as follows (with grammar and punctuation cleaned up a little bit):
“My friend was going in for a blood transfusion because she had leukemia…she couldn’t get off the couch. So I made her two tea jars full, a gallon each, and told her to drink 8 oz in the mornings and at night, but drink water to flush your body.
Two months go by, and her son almost drove me off the road honking…he said they went to Palo Alto and the doctors asked her what she did in her diet.
She said one thing…but didn’t tell them what it was. They said, you no longer have leukemia…so there you go, two people cured I gave it to.”
And here’s another exciting account:
In case you can’t read it due to the small print, the caption below the photo of little Nova, the leukemia patient, reads as follows:
“Update on baby Nova! Though doctors may not understand the Power of Prayer, we do, and we thank you one and all for praying!
The oncologist from Children’s Mercy contacted us with the result from Nova’s bloodwork. She starts off the conversation saying she’s ‘not sure if it’s the colloidal silver, Turmeric or the organic diet that Nova’s on, but she’s never seen a cancer patient’s blood count so perfect.’
They said they found MINIMAL blasts (this is from the leukemia) in her blood which is of NO concern!! Praise God!! And Thank you Jesus!! (Please feel free to share this as thousands have been praying and standing in faith).”
So why in the world would colloidal silver appear to be so effective against leukemia, at least in the above anecdotal accounts?
After all, by FDA standards, colloidal silver cannot be considered as a “cure” or medical “help” for any disease condition whatsoever, much less cancer. It can only be sold, and used, as a nutritional supplement.
50 Clinical Studies Showing Silver
to Be Effective Against Cancer Cells and Tumors
Nevertheless, there are over 50 clinical studies demonstrating various forms of silver — including colloidal silver — to be effective against cancer cells and tumors, including leukemic cancer cells.
Last year, I wrote a book about those 50 studies, titled Colloidal Silver and Cancer: a Surprising Look.
And yes, the book does have a complete section (chapter 5) on colloidal silver and leukemia.
First, that chapter documents the hidden link between fungal infections and leukemia — a link that a growing number of cutting edge researchers believe has been overlooked by far too many in the medical research community. Here’s a quote from that section of the chapter:
“The confused relationship between cancer and fungus was eloquently demonstrated September 29, 1999, in the Medical Tribune Journal. Dr. Karthaus of the Hannover Medical School in Germany reported three patents were successfully cured of their leukemia…The cure was serendipitous. It occurred when they were given a cocktail of three antifungal medications used to treat their ‘secondary’ fungal infections.”
— Doug Kaufman and David Holland, M.D., The Germ that Causes Cancer
The chapter goes on to explain, in detail, why the link between fungal infections and leukemia is so important to understand. And it also details colloidal silver’s astonishing effectiveness against fungal infections, as well.
Then the chapter documents seven different clinical studies, each of which demonstrate that silver ions, silver nanoparticles and other forms of silver are effective against leukemia cells in test tube studies.
Here’s a very short synopsis of each of the seven different clinical studies covered in the leukemia chapter of the book:
- In a clinical study titled “Anti-leukemia Activity of PVP-coated Silver Nanoparticles via Generation of Reactive Oxygen Species and Release of Silver Ions” the researchers found that when leukemic cells were treated with silver nanoparticles or with silver ions, the silver caused the cells to self-destruct. The researchers stated that based on their results, silver could one day prove to be an effective leukemia treatment.
- In a clinical study titled “Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles Improve Anti-leukemic Drug Efficacy via Amplification of Oxidative Stress,” the researchers found that combining silver nanoparticles with anti-leukemia drugs “could enhance therapeutic efficacy against leukemia cells, thereby providing a novel strategy for silver nanoparticles in leukemia therapy.
- In another clinical study titled, “Cytotoxicity and ROS Production of Manufactured Silver Nanoparticles of Different Sizes in Hepatoma and Leukemia Cells,” researchers treating leukemia and liver cancer cells with silver nanoparticles of 4.7 nm and 42 nm in size, respectively, discovered that not only were the silver particles toxic against the cancer cells, the smaller silver nanoparticles had the most cytotoxic effect.
- In another clinical study titled, “The Cellular Uptake And Cytotoxic Effect Of Silver Nanoparticles On Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Cells,” researchers found that once silver nanoparticles enter leukemic cells they trigger the generation of reactive oxygen species, causing “cytotoxicity and apoptosis.” In other words, the leukemic cancer cells self-destructed in the presence of the silver.
- In another clinical study titled, “Cytotoxic Activity of Highly Purified Silver Nanoparticles Sol Against Cells of Human Immune System,” researchers found that when cells from a leukemia cell line were exposed to silver nanoparticles at 25 ppm concentration, only 60% of the cells were left alive after 24 hours, only 30% after 48 hours, and only 20% after 72 hours – a remarkable reduction in cancer cells over a three day period from relatively low levels of silver.
- In another clinical study titled, “Silver Nanoparticles Induce Degradation of the Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress Sensor Activating Transcription Factor-6 Leading to Activation of the NLRP-3 Inflammasome,” researchers discovered that tiny 15 nm-sized silver nanoparticles caused cellular disturbances in low concentrations, and cellular self-destruction at higher levels, leading researchers to conclude silver nanoparticles could be a “very promising” anti-cancer treatment.
- In another clinical study titled, “Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles Improve Anti-leukemic Drug Efficacy via Amplification of Oxidative Stress,” researchers demonstrated that when silver nanoparticles are added to anti-leukemia drugs, they dramatically improve the effectiveness of the drugs by increasing oxidative stress on the cancer cells.
Finally, in Colloidal Silver and Cancer: a Surprising Look, there are longer summaries of the above studies demonstrating silver’s profound effectiveness against leukemia cells in laboratory test tube studies.
Plus there are 43 more studies summarized, which document silver’s astonishing effects against many other types of cancer cells, including: breast cancer cells…bone cancer cells…lung cancer cells…colon cancer cells…liver cancer cells…brain cancer cells…cervical cancer cells…skin cancer cells (melanomas)…larynx cancer cells…and more.
Plus, you’ll find website addresses to the actual studies or study abstracts so you can find them online, print them out and show them to your doctor.
I’m not trying to sell you a book. I just want you to know there’s plenty of medical information out there verifying that, at least in the test tube, silver has been demonstrated clinically to be effective against leukemia cancer cells, as well as many other forms of cancer.
So if you’re dealing with leukemia, you might consider following up on this info, if you’re at all interested.
And of course, be sure to run it all by your specialist. Leukemia is quite serious, and you should never self-treat. Keep your specialist involved in all of your decisions, like the mother of little baby Nova, featured earlier, did.
Important 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:
- 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.”

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!
