Colloidal Silver Info Resources

Important note: We do not sell or otherwise supply publications on the use of colloidal silver. But such publications are readily available through a number or sources, some of which are listed below. We take no responsibility whatsoever for the information provided in the publications listed below. This list is simply a compilation of some of the publications we have come across over the course of the past seven years, and admittedly, due to time and space constraints, it is only a partial list.

Some of these publications are extremely technical in nature, including medical research abstracts requiring a thorough understanding of technical, scientific or medical research terminology. Others are more popular publications written in layman's language. What's more, some of these publications appear to complement each other, and others appear to contradict each other, depending upon the personal beliefs and prejudices of the authors/publishers, or the varying results of the research they have conducted or reviewed. This can add to the confusion surrounding some aspects of colloidal silver usage, rather than to a better understanding of colloidal silver usage. It is also important to note that some of the publications listed below are nothing more than "cheerleader" publications for colloidal silver, offering virtually no information on important topics like potential side effects and contraindications, while other publications listed below take great care to provide information on such vital topics. For these reasons, we urge you to exercise great caution and due diligence in determining for yourself the reliability, accuracy and completeness of information provided in the publications listed below. We are not responsible for your use or misuse of the information provided in the below-listed publications.

What's more, some of the publications listed below are readily publicly available, and others are obscure and/or very difficult to obtain. Wherever possible, we have listed sources or contact information. We do not sell or otherwise supply any of the publications listed below. With diligent investigation, a significant amount of information on colloidal silver and its uses in health and medicine can be found dating as far back as 1897. In a search for additional information on colloidal silver, the reference librarian at your local library would be a good place to start. A good internet search engine would be another productive tool to employ. And your local bookstore, or an internet bookstore such as or may also prove helpful.

Colloidal silver science is constantly evolving, and new information both pro and con comes to light on an ongoing basis. Because of this, we must emphasize that the reader is solely responsible for taking the time and making the effort to educate himself/herself and stay up-to-date on colloidal silver and its many potential uses, risks and rewards. To our knowledge, none of the publications listed below have been reviewed by the FDA. Descriptions of the publications listed below have been provided by the publishers or their publicists, or are printed on the book jackets or in advertising literature or have been taken from the internet. The publications listed below are listed solely for informational purposes, and no attempt to recommend or provide medical treatment or "practice medicine" is herein being made, nor should any be construed. We are not doctors. A knowledgeable and experienced medical practitioner should be consulted for all health care issues. We do not recommend self-treatment.

Colloidal Silver: Where does it go when you drink it? How long does it stay there? a short medical study (10 pages) by Roger Altman, Eng. Sc. D., who took the task upon himself to find out the answers to the above questions by making careful measurements of the silver that he consumed and the silver that he excreted in urine, feces, hair, nails, sweat, etc. From his carefully collected data, we now have an indication of how well the body uses and eliminates colloidal silver, and of what might constitute "safe" levels of daily consumption so as to avoid silver buildup and potential toxicity in the human body. This study provides only one set of measurements on one individual, and therefore may not be applicable to other people because of bio-individuality. Nevertheless, it is fascinating data which has been carefully obtained by a scientifically trained individual using modern analytical tools. It suggests that a healthy adult can consume approximately 2 mg. of colloidal silver per day without risk, barring problems such as kidney or bowel disease that could inhibit the body's normal elimination channels. Since 1 one tsp. of 10 ppm colloidal silver contains approximately 50 micrograms of silver, it would take approximately 40 tsps. of 10 ppm colloidal silver to make 2 mg.

How to Beat Multiple Sclerosis by Nadine Wooley, a multiple sclerosis (MS) patient who refused to accept the common medical wisdom which states there are no answers for this devastating disease, and discovered how to reverse her condition through the use of colloidal silver. Her book offers her own inspired account of her use of colloidal silver and other supplements to beat MS and return to the ambulatory life she once knew. In clear, down-to-earth language she describes in detail all of the things you need to know about fighting MS, that doctors can't or won't tell you. 160 pages. $17.95 from (ISBN #: 0-9626697-5-X)

The Micro Silver Bullet by Dr. M. Paul Farber Extensively documents Dr. Farber's experience with Lyme Disease and how he was able to heal himself of this terrible condition using colloidal silver.
