Strep Throat Cases are Skyrocketing, But Can Colloidal Silver Help?
Several recent news articles have reported an alarming increase in cases of strep throat, but can colloidal silver help?
You bet it can! In fact, colloidal silver is one of the fastest and safest strep throat remedies I’ve ever seen…and its natural strep-fighting properties are backed by scientific research!
Below, you’ll also discover exactly why colloidal silver is such a powerful weapon against strep throat, and how you can use it, too!
What’s more, you’ll also find my own personal story about how my wife and I utilized the powerful strep-fighting qualities of colloidal silver to fight our son’s particularly nasty strep throat infection…along with personal stories from many other experienced colloidal silver users who have done the same!
Here’s what you need to know…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Within just the last week or so, I’ve seen several news articles, like this one from Healthline, “Strep Throat Type A Cases are on the Rise This Year”.
According to the article:
“Infections caused by group A Streptococcus bacteria – commonly called strep throat or strep A – surged this past winter, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows.
This year invasive group A strep (iGAS) infections cases have risen even higher than pre-pandemic levels, according to the report.
According to the CDC ‘iGAS infections have remained high in children in some areas of the country even after respiratory viruses decreased in those areas’ additionally officials said they have seen a rise in infections in adults over 65 as well.
This, coupled with a shortage in the United States of pediatric versions of the antibiotic amoxicillin, has added to an already difficult respiratory season this year.”
The reported shortage of antibiotics is certainly concerning, but as many experienced colloidal silver users know, colloidal silver – even at low concentrations – has been shown by research to be extremely effective at fighting the bacteria that cause strep throat!
Colloidal Silver’s Ability to Fight Strep Throat Backed by Research
As I mentioned before, medical literature has demonstrated colloidal silver to be extremely effective against strep pathogens in laboratory tests – the same ones that cause strep throat.
For example, according to a May 13, 1999 report signed by Brigham Young University microbiologist David A. Revelli and BYU Professor of Microbiology/Molecular Biology Dr. Ron W. Leavitt, Ph.D….
…a colloidal silver solution was able to kill five different strains of the Streptococcus pathogen, at surprisingly low concentrations.
Here’s a brief synopsis of what the researchers discovered:
- Streptococcus pyogenes– causes strep throat, skin infections, upper respiratory infections, impetigo, hospital-acquired infections, Scarlet Fever and more. Inhibited and killed @ 1.25 ppm.
- Streptococcus pneumoniae– causes pneumonia, meningitis, sinusitis, otitis media (ear infection). Inhibited @ 2.5 ppm and killed @ 5 ppm.
- Streptococcus faecalis– causes urinary tract infections, endocarditis and wound infections. Inhibited @ 2.5 ppm and killed @ 5 ppm.
- Streptococcus mutans– a major cause of dental plaque and tooth decay. Inhibited and killed @ 5 ppm.
- Streptococcus gordonii– causes tooth decay, and implicated in infective endocarditis (infection of the heart valves). Inhibited and killed @ 5 ppm.
As you can see, in laboratory testing, extremely low concentrations of colloidal silver ranging between 1.25 ppm and 5 ppm were able to kill the strep pathogens tested – even those that cause strep throat.
Colloidal Silver Works Against Drug-Resistant Strep Throat, Too!
What’s more, in a clinical study titled “Bactericidal Effect of Silver Nanoparticles Against Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria,” published in the World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology in 2010, it was found that silver was effective against even drug-resistant strains of the strep throat pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes, as well as drug-resistant strains of several other pathogens.
The study authors stated:
“In our study, silver nanoparticles exerted a bactericidal effect against the six bacterial strains…
…there was no significant difference between the bactericidal effects of silver nanoparticles on drug-resistant and non-drug-resistant microorganisms.
…the same nanosilver concentration inhibited 99.7% of erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pyogenes, 95.7% of ampicillin-resistant E. coli O157:H7 and 92.8% of multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa.”
The researchers further concluded that silver nanoparticles exhibited bactericidal effect rather than merely bacteriostatic effect.
This is important news because it means the use of antimicrobial silver is so effective against drug-resistant strains of Streptococcus pyogenes, it outright kills them rather than merely inhibiting their growth!
As Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D., a graduate of Harvard, as well as the University of Michigan Medical School, and who now runs the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington has stated:
“Colloidal silver just might be the next germ-fighting wonder drug. And not just for the serious threats making headlines:
[Colloidal silver is] also effective against bacterial infections like strep throat, viruses like the flu, and fungal infections like Candida.
No matter how much a germ mutates, it can’t change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver.
And in the process, the silver doesn’t harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do…”
— Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D., Tahoma Clinic, WA
Interestingly, colloidal silver’s ability to decimate strep throat and other strep pathogens has been known for over 100 years, as noted in the 1910 book, Use of Colloids in Health and Disease, by Alfred B Searle:
“Silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic…In the lab, all virus, fungus, bacterium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, and other pathogenic organisms are killed in three or four minutes upon contact.”
My Personal Story of Healing a Case of
Strep Throat Using Colloidal Silver
One winter, when our son Ron was 16, he came home from high school with a violently red, swollen and extremely sore throat.
When we examined the inside of his throat, we could see what looked like small white cotton balls growing out of the sides of his throat. Upon closer examination, it turned out they were oozing white pus.
I’d never seen anything like it. So we took him to the local Urgent Care right away.
The doctor took a throat culture and diagnosed it as strep throat. He gave Ron a prescription for a strong penicillin derivative and emphasized how important it was to take the entire prescription.
Not liking the idea of blasting my son’s body with powerful antibiotics when it might not even be necessary, my wife and I decided to first try using colloidal silver to fight Ron’s strep throat…
…and we’re glad we did!
Colloidal Silver Is a Powerful Weapon Against Strep Throat
When we got home, we simply brewed up a batch of 10 ppm colloidal silver and had Ron drink six ounces of it in divided doses (two ounces every couple of hours).
In between the two-ounce oral doses, we had him start gargling with colloidal silver, using one ounce of the 10 ppm solution every couple of hours.
We showed him how to keep the colloidal silver at the back of his throat where the pus pockets were for as long as possible, by tilting his head back as he gargled, and periodically stopping to breathe through his nose before resuming gargling.
By the end of the day, the pus pockets were nearly gone, and the redness and inflammation was in full retreat.
By the third day he was fine. The colloidal silver had left no sign whatsoever of the strep throat. We never did have to give him the antibiotics.
Of course, it was no big surprise to us that colloidal silver took care of Ron’s strep throat handily.
After all, in the past we had used colloidal silver effectively against earaches, styes, Pink Eye, infected cuts, burns, food poisoning, colds, flu, upper respiratory infections, and even spider bites.

Experienced Colloidal Silver Users Share Their Strep Throat Stories
Here’s a recent first-hand story from a grateful elementary school teacher who used colloidal silver to eliminate a nasty strep throat infection before it could get worse:
“I’m an elementary school secretary and right now strep throat is rampant there.
Several days ago, I knew I was coming down with it, red sore throat with blisters, swollen glands.
I had some 30 ppm colloidal silver from the health food store, put two dropper fulls in a bit of water, swished, gargled and swallowed it. The next day, my throat was almost completely better!
I’m still doing colloidal silver 3x a day for a week to be sure the pathogen is gone.”
— Dianne M.
And here’s a recent testimonial from a grateful mother who used colloidal silver to cure her children of strep throat:
“Three of my little ones got healed from strep thanks to colloidal silver. They’re ages three years old, and above.
I gave them four eye-droppers full of colloidal silver, five or six times a day.
They gargled with it, then swallowed. Their gargling was pretty fast since they’re so small. But it still worked!
The infection went away quickly. With colloidal silver, we always get healed in less than five days. Colloidal silver has been our ONLY antibiotic for the last 4 years.”
— N.L., Scottsdale, AZ
Many others have also attested to the powerful strep-throat-fighting qualities of colloidal silver. For example:
“The micro-particle colloidal silver works almost instantly on strep throat…We’ve had almost universal instant problem solving with it.
My granddaughter who was with us in church tonight had the swine flu 3 weeks ago, and it was tested and verified at the Drs.
She had a 103 fever, and the Dr gave her a prescription for antibiotics on Friday that they couldn’t get filled until Monday when the pharmacy opened.
Friday night, her temp spiked again at about 2:30 a.m. Her RN mom was at work, and I personally checked her temp.
It didn’t seem right to wait, so I gave her a 1 oz shot glass of fresh micro-particle colloidal silver and a dose of Tylenol. Her fever was gone at 2:45 a.m. and she slept well.
When she was checked again at 6:30 a.m. when her mom got off work, her fever was gone, her sore throat and cough were gone, all lung congestion gone…never came back.
…This is the 12 year old who traditionally went right into strep throat and pneumonia every year in flu season.
She got the prescription filled Monday, but didn’t take it, she was totally cured thanks to the micro-particle colloidal silver!!”
— Kathy W., KS
Here’s another interesting testimonial about a dramatic healing from strep throat, thanks to colloidal silver:
“At the time I first discovered colloidal silver, I was plagued with frequent bouts of strep throat.
Having had rheumatic fever as a child, I knew that I must take any flare-up of strep throat very seriously so that I didn’t risk a re-occurrence of rheumatic fever.
It seemed that I was constantly on penicillin and still wasn’t able to control the strep throat. I ended up in the hospital three times over the years.
Very quickly, after discovering colloidal silver, I learned how to make it myself so that I could always have an available supply.
Since that time, 14 years ago, I have never had a re-occurrence of strep throat.
In fact, I have not, in all that time, been to a doctor for any sort of infectious condition. Colloidal silver had transformed my health and wellness paradigm.”
— David (GLN)
According to a blogger who goes by the name Cursive L, colloidal silver worked remarkably well for her bout with strep throat. She writes:
“A month ago I came down with strep throat in the middle of summer. Inflamed tonsils and white spots, ugh!
I can’t remember the last time I had strep, so I was a little unsure of what to do. I read online that strep is a bacterial infection and needs to be treated, otherwise, it will only get worse.
Instead of turning to a medical doctor, who I knew would prescribe me a nasty antibiotic (Penicillian), I asked my chiropractor what to do. He suggested colloidal silver.
You spray it four times a day on the back of your throat, 30 sprays each time, hold the liquid under your tongue, and then swallow it down.
The very next day I already felt 75% better. By day two, I was at 100%. This stuff worked wonders!
…My sister had strep a month before I did and took Penicillian as prescribed by her doctor.
The strep throat returned three more times before it finally went away.
I took Colloidal Silver and I was cured in two days. Now my body is stronger and knows how to fight off that particular bacteria.”
There are many, many people who swear by colloidal silver, and testify to its profound effectiveness against strep throat. But I’ll end with this short personal account by Mike Adams, of NaturalNews.com.
Mike recommends using a nebulizer so the colloidal silver can be inhaled as an atomized mist when dealing with a strep throat infection.
While there is some controversy over nebulizing colloidal silver, many people have found it to be both safe and effective for short-term use against sinus, throat and upper respiratory infections.
Here’s what Mike Adams wrote:
“I have personally inhaled colloidal silver during a strep throat infection episode, in an effort to eliminate the infection.
I can’t say whether it really worked or not, because one person is not a clinical trial, but I can say that I felt it was perfectly safe for me to do.
And the strep throat infection was gone within 24 hours, in my case.”
I’d say that pretty much constituted a successful use of colloidal silver for strep throat. And it’s good to know that nebulizing colloidal silver seems to work for it as well as gargling and oral ingestion.
Of course, I agree with Mike Adams. Testimonials must be considered strictly as personal anecdotal accounts, and not proof of effectiveness.
But clearly a LOT of people are tickled pink about the way they’ve been able to eliminate strep throat infections naturally, with colloidal silver.
How to use Colloidal Silver to Help Fight Strep Throat
Whether you’ve just started having symptoms or you’re fighting a stubborn case, here are four easy ways to use colloidal silver to fight strep throat:
#1 – Use Colloidal Silver to Boost Your Immunity
Because of its profound infection-fighting qualities, colloidal silver can be used to directly intervene during a strep throat infection, as it helps your body fight against the infection itself, as well as many of the more pronounced symptoms.
But it can also be used preventively, in small daily doses that help boost immunity, which can help prevent strep throat infections altogether.
According to Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of the best-selling book, The Body Electric, who conducted ground-breaking research into silver and healing at Syracuse Medical University, the lower one’s bodily silver levels are, the more sickness and disease one is likely to have. He 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 sicknesses.
I believe that a silver deficiency may be the key to the improper function of the immune system.”
And according to Dr. Kent Holtorf, of the Holtorf Medical Group, silver may be a natural component of the human immune system:
“There is evidence that silver is a natural critical component of our immune system and that low tissue levels associated with a dietary deficiency may result in a relatively weakened immune system, making one more prone to infection. (3,4,5)”
And finally, as Dr. Ron Surowitz, head of the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association, has stated, many of his own skin patients have found dramatic relief by spraying colloidal silver onto infected areas of skin:
“…It’s interesting how many of my patients improve with the use of Colloidal Silver. It enhances the immune system where prescription antibiotics cause yeast overgrowth…”

#2 – Gargle Colloidal Silver to Help Fight off Strep Throat
When Dr. James Balsch, M.D. and his wife Phyllis Balsch, C.N.C., wrote their bestselling book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing, they stated that colloidal silver could be gargled to stop a sore throat.
Frankly, I’ve personally used colloidal silver to knock out stubborn sore throats on a number of occasions over the past 17 years, but it can also work for strep throat just as well.
Usually I gargle with a full ounce of 10 ppm strength colloidal silver at a time, three or four times a day, to get maximum relief from the strep throat infection.
As we showed our son Ron, you need to keep the colloidal silver at the back of the throat where the pus pockets form for as long as possible. You can do this by tilting the head back while gargling, periodically pausing to breathe through the nose before resuming gargling.
#3 – Use Colloidal Silver in a Spray Bottle
Experienced colloidal silver user B. Bloom from Kansas fights sore throats by spraying the back of the throat with colloidal silver using a fine mist spray bottle. Unsurprisingly, due to the powerful antimicrobial properties of colloidal silver, this method can also be used for fighting off stubborn strep throat infections, too!
Take a look at her method:
“If one of us begins to get a sore throat, we use a small spray bottle and spray it in the mouth, throat, and nose.
We try to keep it in contact with the affected area for six to ten minutes. It’s hard to keep it in the throat without swallowing.
Each time you swallow, spray more in the throat. Keep in there for six to ten minutes. We do it two or three times a day.”
#4 – Nebulize Colloidal Silver to Help Combat Strep Throat
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), such as when you’re fighting strep throat.
As mentioned above, Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com used colloidal silver in his nebulizer to fight off a strep throat infecting in just 24 hours!
A nebulizer 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, allowing you to inhale a more concentrated dose of the liquid directly into the lungs.
Here’s an eye-opening video and related article titled “Nebulizing Colloidal Silver into the Lungs to Stop Infection”, that explains exactly how to inhale colloidal silver directly into the lungs using a nebulizer.
But be sure to read the article at the link above for several important warnings and contraindications in regards to nebulizing colloidal silver.
The above anecdotal accounts, expert quotes and in vitro (i.e., test tube) clinical studies do not prove 100% that colloidal silver will be effective in stopping strep throat in humans, because no in vivo (i.e., in the human body) studies have yet been conducted.
But they do demonstrate the fact that silver-based antimicrobials are indeed effective against the Streptococcus pyogenes pathogen strep throat infections – including the antibiotic-resistant strains.
It’s also important to note, strep throat infections can be quite serious, especially in children. If not treated thoroughly and promptly, they can lead to further infections like Scarlet Fever, strep-related kidney disease, and several other more serious conditions.
It is always a good idea – especially when dealing with strep throat in children – to work closely with an experienced, licensed, holistic-oriented doctor who will not only definitively diagnose strep throat, but prescribe proper colloidal silver dosage.
A good holistic health doctor will then monitor the infection to make sure the dosage is working well and there are no other problems developing. (See my article, Giving Colloidal Silver to Young Children: Why It’s Important to Use Caution, for more important information.)
But as you can see for yourself, many experienced colloidal silver users, including myself and my family, have been using it very successfully to fight infections like strep throat for years.
Hopefully, you’ll never have to go through a bout of strep throat. But in case you ever do, you might want to make sure you have the ability to produce your own high-quality colloidal silver whenever you need it. Just click on the link to learn more.
