Relief from Tinnitus with Colloidal Silver
Tinnitus, which is also known colloquially as “ringing in the ears,” can be an annoying affliction to say the least, but according to some anecdotal accounts, colloidal silver can provide some relief.
While researchers do not seem to agree over the cause of tinnitus, what’s widely agreed upon is the fact that there are no known effective medications for the problem.
Or…are there? Below, you’ll read the personal experiences of some folks using small amounts of colloidal silver on a regular daily basis to rid themselves of the pesky ringing in their ears from tinnitus.
Here’s what we know so far…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Experts claim tinnitus affects as many as one in every five people, worldwide, making it one of the most common of all afflictions.
But researchers still argue over the cause. Some say it’s brought on by exposure to loud noises or loud music, and others claim it can be brought on by ear infections, inflammation in the ears, or even heart disease, brain tumors, head injury or excess ear wax buildup.
Dr. Young, Ph.D. Suggests Using
Colloidal Silver for Tinnitus
In his bestselling book, The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health, Dr. Robert O. Young, Ph.D. says on page 178:
“Eye or ear problems, including cataracts, glaucoma, redness, blurred vision, poor eyesight, ringing in the ears, earaches, soreness or swelling of the ears, eardrum damage, hardness of hearing, and (in rare cases) loss of hearing: Use 1 drop of colloidal silver topically (directly in the eye or ear) 3 times a day.”
I don’t have any personal experience whatsoever using colloidal silver for tinnitus. But I noticed the following testimonial on the Colloidal Silver Success Stories page of TheSilverEdge.com web site:
“I have given the colloidal silver water to a friend who suffers from extreme tinnitus. The tinnitus disappears after drinking an ounce a day for about a week.
When the colloidal silver water is stopped the tinnitus returns gradually after about a week.
This has been tried about 4 times and each time the tinnitus stops and stays away as long as the colloidal silver is consumed daily and returns when the silver is no longer consumed.”
— B.D., Kelowna, BC, Canada
It appears this individual did not use colloidal silver directly in the ears as per Dr. Young’s suggestion in his book, but instead, drank one ounce of colloidal silver every day.
Another brief but interesting testimonial tells quite a similar story:
“While I took my daily ounce of 10 ppm colloidal silver, my arthritis pain disappeared and also the ringing in my ears.
I didn’t realize the ringing had stopped until I quit using the colloidal silver, and the ringing in my ears returned until I re-started my daily dose.”
— David F.
Testimonials like these make me wonder if relief of tinnitus would have been more-or-less permanent had the colloidal silver been used in the ears, sparingly, as per Dr. Young’s suggestion above, for a short period of time, such as for five days to a week.
Here’s another interesting testimonial from a female tinnitus sufferer, which I found on the always helpful EarthClinic.com website:
“In the evening, before bed, with a rubber ear syringe, I gently squirted Colloidal silver in one ear, laid on the other side for 5 minutes, then absorbed the colloidal silver with a clean wash cloth as it drained out when I sat up.
Then I did the same to the other ear. The next morning, I used the same treatment with the colloidal silver but left it in each ear for approximately 30 minutes per ear. This has reduced the loud ringing/tinnitus approximately 90%.”
Again, I have no personal experience using colloidal silver in this manner for tinnitus. And I’m not sure leaving that much colloidal silver in the ear for 30 minutes is such a wise idea, because of the potential for silver particles to accumulate in the ear. But I can’t argue with the woman’s success in reducing her tinnitus by 90%.
If it were me, however, I’d probably take a slower approach and try the one-drop-three -times-per-day technique recommended by Dr. Young in his book, for maybe a week or so to see if it helps.
Here’s another very interesting testimonial I found online, on the Topix Lyme Disease forum, from a gentleman who began using colloidal silver as a nutritional adjunct for his Lyme disease infection. He found that as a pleasant side effect, his tinnitus began getting better:
“I was diagnosed with Lyme almost 4 months ago. I have been using colloidal silver along with antibiotics. I believe the colloidal silver is more powerful than any antibiotic there is and I am slowly building up my daily doses. I have many problems from the Lyme but my tinnitus has gotten better and my hearing seems to be coming back to almost 100%.”
Here’s another interesting testimonial, this one from the well-known CureZone.com website:
“I had a severe infection that cause my ear ringing to get horrible – and it lasted about three weeks – I thought I’d go nutsy. It was awful.
Colloidal Silver helped. I ingested it and put it directly in my ears (was a self cure; I don’t know if any doctor would recommend it), and it worked! It got rid of the terrible ringing that came with the infection.”
Colloidal silver used directly in the ears is also recommended, briefly, by readers on the What Doctor’s Don’t Tell You website:
“Finally, there was the gentleman last time who happened to mention, in passing, that he had tinnitus. Try some colloidal silver in the ear, and check your thyroid levels, says one reader, while another suggests infra-red treatment.”
And the SurvivalistBoards.com website has another interesting testimonial:
“After doing my own research I made my own colloidal silver. The solution tested out to be in the range of 9 ppm. I drank an ounce of my colloidal silver water daily for a week and used it on some cuts and scrapes…I also used it in my ears, tinnitus gone!”
Finally, in the best-selling book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing, by Phyllis A. Balch, in the chapter on Hearing Loss, next to the section on tinnitus and its relation to hearing loss, one of the recommended nutritional supplements is colloidal silver. Her brief mention simply states, “Can be used as ear drops for infection or inflammation.”
A Closer Look at Colloidal Silver
and Ear Infections
According to natural health writer Angela Kaelin,
“Almost everyone has suffered from an ear infection at one time or another. It is such a common childhood disorder that most children experience an ear infection before the age of four. Some adults are chronic sufferers. Untreated, or improperly treated, these infections can lead to hearing loss.”
She goes on to note,
“Conventional treatments typically involve multiple doctor visits, the use of problematic antibiotics, potentially liver-damaging painkillers, and in more severe cases, surgeries, involving dangerous anesthesia and the actual puncturing of the eardrum.”
Thankfully, due to the incredible antimicrobial and antifungal properties of colloidal silver, it’s certainly a safer, natural, drug-free and non-surgical option for treating even the most persistent ear infections.
Dr. Ron Surowitz, head of the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association, confirms that colloidal silver often works for earaches when nothing else will. He has stated:
“… A patient I was treating for an ear infection continued to have pain. His ear canal was severely inflamed and had the appearance of what you would think of as a burn.
After taking an injection of an antibiotic, as well as using a prescription ear drop and an oral antibiotic for several days, he returned with an internal canal that was bright red and an ear that was tender to the touch.
I then prescribed 3 colloidal silver drops in his affected ear three times daily, and he returned the next day with a 75% improvement…”
You can read even more in-depth on this subject in Angela Kaelin’s article, Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way, but I think you can see that colloidal silver can be an extraordinary natural remedy for ear infections and earache!
And this is something experienced colloidal silver users have already experienced for themselves, many times over.
“I purchased your colloidal silver maker, and during Christmas I came down with a mild ear infection. I then dropped a few drops of the homemade silver solution (18 ppm, was it too strong a solution?) into my ear and nose, and it took about 2 hours and the hearing came back and my nose opened up!”
— Jaana Rouhiainen, Finland
Why Would Colloidal Silver Help?
I’m conjecturing here, but my guess would be that if one’s tinnitus is caused by either infection or inflammation, colloidal silver *might* be beneficial, used either orally at the adult dosage of an ounce a day, or directly in the ear as per Dr. Young’s suggestion, at the rate of one-drop-three-times-per-day, for a week or so.
Since silver is known to be highly antimicrobial, as well as having anti-inflammatory properties, the colloidal silver could potentially help tinnitus symptoms by killing the microbes behind it if an ear infection is the culprit. Or if there’s an inflammation problem, silver might reduce the inflammation enough to stop the ringing.
How to Use Colloidal Silver in the Ears
Using colloidal silver in the ears to help heal ear infections and earaches, tinnitus, and prevent colds is quick and easy.
You just lie on your side, and add two or three drops of 5-10 ppm colloidal silver to the affected ear, allowing it to run down inside the ear and work its magic for at least seven minutes. (Watch the video below for additional tips.)
Experienced colloidal silver users say to repeat the procedure twice a day if necessary. Usually, if you catch an earache early enough, you can knock it out in a single day. Sometimes it takes more than one day if you’ve waited too long to act.
Here’s a video demonstration of just how easy it is:
Using colloidal silver in the ears is one of the easiest ways in the world to put its healing antimicrobial power to work for you. And it’s so simple and effective, once you’ve experienced it, you’ll wonder why you’d never heard of doing so before!
The Bottom Line…
I have to re-emphasize, all of that is pure conjecture on my part. There have been, to the best of my knowledge, no clinical studies whatsoever on the topic of using colloidal silver to stop tinnitus itself.
If the tinnitus is not caused by infection or inflammation, however, but instead by heart disease, brain tumor, head injury, loud noise, ear wax buildup or other issues, colloidal silver likely would be of no help at all.
But based on the above anecdotal reports, perhaps simply ingesting a small amount of colloidal silver daily would help. Or, a person might even want to combine that with Dr. Young’s suggestion, and try it for a week or so.
If you suffer from tinnitus and choose to try colloidal silver in either the oral dosage method described in the testimonials above, or Dr. Young’s recommended method of putting one drop into the ears each day, I’d love to know your results after a few weeks trial.

Learn to Make Your Own
Colloidal Silver for Pennies…
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:
