Using Colloidal Silver Against Brain-Eating Parasites?
Using Colloidal Silver Against Brain-Eating Parasites?
by Steve Barwick, author, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual
Here’s a fascinating anecdotal account from a reader who swears colloidal silver healed her daughter of a potentially deadly brain parasite picked up from swimming in a local lake:
“A large group of us friends and neighbors went to a lake recently. One week later our children came down with close to deadly infections. The doctors had no idea what was wrong with them until they found out there was a parasite in the lake beach we were at!
All the kids including my daughter were so very sick — my daughter had temps up to 105. It was crazy! We were scared…more scared then I have ever been with my kids.
The other parents put their kids in the hospital. But my friend made me quart after quart of colloidal silver. It took seven days, but it healed my daughter. She’s completely free of the vomiting and the fever, while some of the other kids are still in the hospital sick. I’m telling you what, I’m so grateful!”
I wrote back to the happy mom and asked her if any of the other children who had become sickened with the brain parasite after visiting the lake had been given colloidal silver. She replied:
“No other child used the colloidal silver except mine. I gave her a fourth of a cup 3 times a day. The other kids who got sick are still on lots of medicines and my child healed before anyone’s.
I gave her the silver for 7 days straight, even when she seemed better and fever free, because it kept coming back. It was a fight!
All the children had the same parasite. Not sure the name, but they knew it was from a lake or pond and the only time any of us have been in a lake was this one time this summer.
What was a awesome day at a lake beach…grilling & enjoying summer’s last days before school started…but it turned into a nightmare….one of the little girls is still in ICU in children’s hospital.
They at first thought our kids had meningitis but found out it wasn’t that and ruled it out when more blood tests came back. They did say the parasites enter the body through the nose and they can eat at the brain…..all the kids had exactly the SAME symptoms.
BTW I took my child to Urgent Care instead of the hospital and the doctor said keep doing what you’re doing. He actually encouraged the silver. He knew about silver and knew it worked. The nurse however seemed skeptical. She’d never heard of it before.”
As you can see, colloidal silver appears to have worked against this particular brain parasite, quite possibly saving the life of this woman’s child.
Not Medical Proof
Of course, as I’ve written many times, first-hand anecdotal accounts like the one above are not *proof* of colloidal silver’s effectiveness against parasite infections, or any infections for that matter.
But in my view, these kinds of personal experiential accounts do indeed serve as very powerful indications that more research needs to be conducted in this area. And it seems such research is indeed taking place.
Now the Proof is Unfolding
In fact, a very interesting article has been published on the “Science News for Students” website, explaining that silver nanoparticles are being used to help fight against…yes, you guessed it…brain-eating parasites!
The article starts out by saying:
“Brain-eating amoebas are the stuff of nightmares. People infected with these microscopic monsters typically die within a week.
To treat infections, doctors currently use a chemical cocktail of drugs. Even with treatment, however, these parasites usually prove fatal. But that may change. In fact, a new silver “bullet” might — quite literally — prove their downfall.
Researchers in Malaysia report that silver nanoparticles can make drugs more effective as they fight off brain-eating amoebas. The scientists began by growing two kinds of these parasites in test tubes: One is Acanthamoeba castellanii. The other is Naegleria fowleri.
The researchers treated these amoebas with drugs. Some got only the drugs. Others got the drugs together with a dose of silver nanoparticles. The silver greatly boosted the killing power of most drugs, the new study reports.”
The article goes on to point out that researchers are now looking into pairing silver nanoparticles with anti-seizure drugs that are known to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier more easily. As the writer states:
“The new tactic — pairing them with anti-seizure drugs — appears to show real promise. Still, the new treatment is a long way from being ready for use in people. But Anwar already has a plan for how to apply the silver nanoparticles and drugs. He wants to spray them up your nose.
“These amoebas enter the brain through the easiest route,” he says. That often is up through the nose. Earlier this year, a news report described a woman who died from brain-eating amoebas. The source? She had rinsed out her nose with water that later turned out to be infected.
“What we propose is that we can also follow the same track of the amoebas,” says Anwar. Doctors can deliver the drug as a nasal spray.”
Okay. You’ve got to admit that’s pretty darned interesting. But what if colloidal silver by itself would work against these brain-eating parasites, without being coated with anti-seizure drugs?
Of course, for a long time now, clinical researchers have been studying the idea of adding nanosilver to various drugs.
For example, some researchers have found that adding silver to prescription antibiotic drugs makes many of those drugs up to 1,000x more effective against pathogens.
And cancer researchers recently discovered that adding silver to their anti-cancer drugs make them work better against drug-resistant forms of cancer.
But none of these researchers, to my knowledge, have tested to see whether or not colloidal silver by itself would do the trick as well as the drug/silver combination.
And I believe that’s because the researchers are working to develop “novel” forms of drugs that can be patented and later monopolized and sold by Big Pharma — something they can’t do with a strictly natural substance like silver.
Nevertheless, it still needs to be established, scientifically, whether or not silver actually crosses the blood-brain barrier by itself.
Some clinical research has demonstrated that very tiny silver particles can indeed make their way into the brain. While other researchers have found that silver gets trapped in the outer layer of the blood-brain barrier, never making it from the bloodstream into the brain.
While this article might open up more questions than answers, for now, one thing for sure is that more research needs to be done, since silver is indeed known to kill a number of different parasites.
You can read more about silver’s anti-parasite activity in the following articles:
- Colloidal Silver Heals Parasite Infections
- Colloidal Silver Beats Malaria
- Colloidal Silver and the Cryptosporidium Threat
- The Colloidal Silver Solution to Leishmaniasis Parasitic Skin Infections
Plus, in a recent study titled “Inorganic Nanoparticles Kill Toxoplasma Gondii Via Changes In Redox Status and Mitochondrial Membrane Potential,” researchers demonstrated that silver, gold and platinum nanoparticles easily kill the intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii, the causative agent behind the disease Toxoplasmosis, which infects nearly one-third of the world’s population.
The researchers wrote: “Our study demonstrates that gold nanoparticles, silver nanoparticles and platinum nanoparticles have a promising anti-T. gondii activity without detectable host cell toxicity.”
In other words, the metal nanoparticles killed off these intracellular parasites without harming healthy human cells in the process.
And yet another recent study has found that silver nanoparticles are effective against the Fasciolasis parasite, which usually affects animals like sheep, goats, cattle, buffalo, horses, donkeys, camels and rabbits, but which is now recognized by WHO as an “emerging human disease” as well.
Indeed, the nanosilver worked even better against the Fasciolasis parasite than the anti-parasite drug Triclabendazole.
Finally, in a study published on Nature.com, researchers demonstrated that silver nanoparticles coated with citrus fruit bioflavanoids, were effective against both multi-drug resistant bacteria, as well as brain-eating amoebae.
According to the researchers, the silver nanoparticles “quantitatively abolished amoeba viability by 100%.”
In other words, the brain-eating parasites didn’t stand a chance against the silver nanoparticles. As the researchers stated, “… these novel nanoparticles formulations hold potential as therapeutic agents against infections caused by brain-eating amoebae, as well as multi-drug resistant bacteria, and recommend a step forward in drug development.”
The bottom line is that study-after-study have been demonstrating that silver — by itself, or combined with drugs or natural plant extracts — constitutes a powerful anti-parasitic substance.
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!
