Learn how to make colloidal silver
Stay away from all the snake oil salesmen. Very few of them have any idea what they’re making and selling. There is no need to buy any particular thing from any specific supplier. Here is a source of authentic, well-reviewed, accepted information with no commercial activity allowed:
I started that thread six years ago. It has had 565 replies and 52,000 views.

Thanks for the link. I read all 729 posts. I’d put the quality of writing and information on par with what is posted at Peak Prosperity. The tone is civil and informative. The posters report on their particular method of making colloidal silver (CS) and electrically isolated silver (EIS.) There are also posts with links to interesting articles about CS/EIS.
(It turns out that abeland1 is the inventor half of a small family company that makes colloidal silver generators; however, he doesn’t push his products. There are many CS generators on the market and many homemade CS generators described in the comments. abeland1 focuses on making good CS/EIS and offers suggestions/warnings to people so they can improve their particular process. It was quite refreshing to see his approach. If I didn’t already have a CS generator, I’d certainly consider buying one of his.)
It took me several sessions to digest all the posts. I consider it to have been well worth my time to read! I learned quite a bit from the posters. I’m still angry that testing of CS/EIS as a tool against microbial disease hasn’t been performed via government grants. Of course, big Pharma doesn’t want these studies performed because they can’t profit from this. They spend enough in lobbying and campaign contributions to ensure they get the government they paid for. Sigh.
Is CS/EIS effective against COVID-19? We’ll likely never have studies to prove it. I still consider CS/EIS a useful tool in the arsenal. I recently purchased a nebulizer and huff about 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of 10 PPM CS/EIS when I return from the grocery store or any other social contact. It is much easier to cure an infection before it runs rampant.
These are some snippets from that thread that I found particularly interesting:
From post#34: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21812950
The advance in nanotechnology has enabled us to utilize particles in the size of the nanoscale. This has created new therapeutic horizons, and in the case of silver, the currently available data only reveals the surface of the potential benefits and the wide range of applications. Interactions between viral biomolecules and silver nanoparticles suggest that the use of nanosystems may contribute importantly for the enhancement of current prevention of infection and antiviral therapies. Recently, it has been suggested that silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) bind with external membrane of lipid enveloped virus to prevent the infection. Nevertheless, the interaction of AgNPs with viruses is a largely unexplored field. AgNPs has been studied particularly on HIV where it was demonstrated the mechanism of antiviral action of the nanoparticles as well as the inhibition the transmission of HIV-1 infection in human cervix organ culture. This review discusses recent advances in the understanding of the biocidal mechanisms of action of silver Nanoparticles.
I learned about the Nernst diffusion effect in post#160
There is a region surrounding the anode called the Nernst diffusion area. To put it simply, it is a region that will only allow a certain density of ions to exist before they agglomerate into larger particles. So for those of you with your setups for making colloidal silver, try reducing the current and allowing more time and let us know the results.
Here’s a snippet from post#212 about antibiotic resistance.
We are now at a point where antibiotic resistance has become a serious threat to global public health. In a report earlier this year, Prof. Dame Sally Davies, chief medical officer for England, commented:
“The soaring number of antibiotic-resistant infections poses such a great threat to society that in 20 years’ time we could be taken back to a 19th century environment where everyday infections kill us as a result of routine operations.”
In post#281, a link to https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2016/09/a-cinematic-approach-to-drug-resistance/ was presented. That article has this video embedded. It is on 2 minutes long, but shows the results of bacteria evolving rapidly to develop antibiotic resistance. (This was my favorite link in the whole thread!)
And this is the last snippet I’ll post. Post#368:

In-human activity and pharmacology of homemade silver nanoparticles in highly refractory metastatic head and neck squamous cell cancer.
Background: Silver nanoparticles (SNPs) show high efficacy as targeted therapy against cancer cell lines, but have never been tested in patient clinical trials. We present the first in-human trial of SNPs in a cancer patient with a dramatic outcome. Methods: Homemade SNP solution is prepared by the patient with online instructions. Current from 3 9-volt batteries is passed across 99.99% pure silver-bar electrodes in distilled water, until the metal content of the water measures 0.09-0.15 parts per million. The manufacturer is a 77-year old male who developed multiple recurrences of nasal cavity squamous cell cancer. Over 2 years he progressed on platinum and taxane based-chemotherapy, radiation twice and 2 surgical resections. Large hepatic and pulmonary metastases were observed on PET, MRI and CT; he was initiated on hospice. Without informing his oncologist he subsequently began manufacturing and consuming the SNP solution. Results: The patient ingested 120 ml daily of the solution for 3 months leading to clinical recovery and complete resolution of cancer at all sites, persisting for 18 months. Electron microscopy of the silver solution revealed bimodal SNP size distributions; 3 & 12 nm. Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry showed the basal blood silver ion concentrations of 32 ng/g. One hour after ingesting 60 ml of silver solution it rose to 46 ng/g. Urine showed no SNPs. Toxicities were not noted with this silver solution, with no evidence of myelosuppression, liver or kidney abnormalities on repeated testing. The patient underwent reconstructive surgery with excellent wound healing, and his performance status continues to improve. Conclusions: Ingestion of a SNP solution is associated with complete regression of highly refractory head and neck cancer in the absence of other anticancer therapy. Ingesting silver solution causes a noticeable and nearly immediate rise in blood silver concentration. Urinary excretion is not a major path of clearance from the body. Given these dramatic results that may be attributed to SNP in conjunction with strong preclinical data, further patient testing of SNP should be done to confirm its safety and efficacy in head and neck cancer.In-human activity and pharmacology of homemade silver nanoparticles in highly refractory metastatic head and neck squamous cell cancer.

There’s lots more! It was posts like these along with good advice and user reports that make this thread worth reading. Of course, if you think that the medical-industrial-complex has the patent on patient cures and that your health is their primary concern, don’t bother.
