    Which makes me suspisious

when seeing the panic in the establishment when I read Nigeria want to try it against Ebola. I take this as a sign it will probably work.

Heaven forbid the people will cure themselves almost for free.

    I’ve made and used colloidial

I've made and used colloidial silver almost exactly as this man describes.  While I did not notice any effect, it is really simple to make with distilled water, a battery charger, a mason jar and two pieces of silver bullion.  I also used a meter to check EC, had about the same results he did.

The VERY important aspects are to use pure silver electrodes, have nothing but the electrodes touch the water, use distilled water, and glass vessels.

The cases of argyrosis I've read all involved people chronically ingesting rather large amounts of silver.  At 10 ppm, you have 10 mg of silver per liter of water, or about 37.8 mg per gallon.  The EPA says the reference dose is 5 ug/k/d.  That means up to 0.27 mg per day for a 120 lb person is relatively safe.  One tablespoon of 10 ppm colloidial silver is 0.15 mg of silver, well under the reference dose used by the EPA.

So in the above example, the man's wife was consuming about 0.1 mg of silver per day for 3 days, assuming his meter was accurate.  That's not a dose I'd worry about at all.

It would be nice to see double-blind studies, but I won't hold my breath…:)

    full disclosure

Here are a few studies people considering using silver should read-

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21683166

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24621755

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3506774/

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3754374/

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15111684/

http://www.escholarship.org/uc/item/0832g6d3

From the last link-

"While researching arthritis on the Internet, the patient had downloaded detailed information on the preparation of colloidal silver (colloidal silver is a suspension of submicroscopic metallic silver particles suspended in a liquid base) for a variety of indications including joint aches. He was able to obtain plans for a simple battery-operated chamber designed to leach silver from pure silver wire. He ingested approximately 16 ounces (~ 450 ml) of 450 ppm colloidal silver three times a day for 10 months. He reported improvement in his arthritis; however, he discontinued the treatment when his skin began to turn gray."

    Instructable

This looks too easy. Does this make sense?

    Re: Mike

That instructables is correct, however it is good to get a conductivity meter to a.) confirm your distilled water is pure and b.) measure the ppm of the finished product.  I just got the stuff to make this at home and I'm using an HM Digital EC-3 Conductivity Meter.  Unfortunately I can think of no way to test the success of the product or the accuracy of the meter beyond anticdotal evidence.

    I tried it for a while. Did nothing for me.

 Did nothing for me. Planning on using it up for wound care, but honestly I think salt and honey are better on wounds.

    Colloidal Silver Parameters

A lot of the research lacks vital information about the parameters of colloidal silver; the important ones are particle size and uniformity, concentration in ppm, ionic vs metallic, coated vs uncoated and quantity ingested; safe and effective parameters are 10ppm of uncoated ionic nano silver (Ag+) and 0.8 nanometer particle size

    Time warp…

It's really funny to read the post     – I hope RogerA is still online. –  but reading it you could have thought it was just posted.  It would be just as true.

    Colloidal Silver – a penny for your thoughts.

I bought a colloidal silver generator a few years back, thinking that it would come in handy some day. Perhaps that day has come.

I’ve never really used it, but I now have a gallon of fresh 10 PPM colloidal silver in my cabinet.
