How to make COLLOIDAL SILVER (Easy)

video How to make COLLOIDAL SILVER (Easy)
Colloidal Silver is the most potent disinfectant and antiseptic, and on-contact killer of viruses, bacteria, fungi and all kinds of germs. My guess is, if you want to make it, you probably know what is does, and how it has been used for the last 3,000 years. Since you can make it yourself and you need no prescription, you will not see it on TV -- ever!
Items you need:
2 ft. common electric wire  (any laying around in the house)
4 small alligator clamps    ( $6 for 4 at the hardware store)
    A bit of electric tape.
3    9V  batteries  ( about $ 10)
Distilled water  $0.99
Saline  (eyewash drops)  $2-3.00
1 ft silver wire, 999.99  pure . $10-25.00, depending on gauge, a thin one will do fine.
A glass (for the electrolysis) no plastic or metal containers

Instructions in the video.
You don't  need a box for the apparatus or soldering anything. twist the wires and cover with electric tape. Just connect your batteries in series to get 27 Volt.
  When you are done, clean the oxidized wire with a rough cloth or soda, and store all the pieces in a zip-lock bag until next time.
Store colloidal silver in glass, away from light.

If you add saline (or any other form of sodium chloride) to the water, you are not producing colloidal solver, but silver chloride, the light sensitive chemical in photograhic film..

You can remove silver stains with a mixture of a teaspoon of photographers hypo (sodium thiosulfate) crystals in a quarter cup of household ammonia. The reaction is slow and may take a few days. On flat surfaces, I cover the stain with tissue, Soak it with the mixture and cover with a glass dish, to slow evaporation. You may have ot refresh the solution several times to get rid of all the stain.

Does anyone know of a method for removing colloidal silver stains from porcelain? I really need help!

I've worked in electronics for years as a tech and engineer so I would never mix the positive and negative up. Pretty easy to keep straight, if not use a meter to verify which is positive. Making colloid is basically the same as plating, you are dissolving one metal(the silver anode +positive ), making positive ions,

https://www.google.com/patents/US20140030314?dq=US...

and plating it on the other the other metal (the negative cathode). You end up with a solution of the positive material so the cathode shouldn't matter as long as it doesn't rust in the water. I don't think it could rust due to the cathodic protection of the electrons. I'm sure only the anode needs to be silver but since I have no way to test it and I'm not a chemist I wanted the opinion of someone that was a chemist, or at least had a good working knowledge of chemistry. Anon of course.

I purchased a $5 Canadian coin 99.99% silver for $27, wish I lived in Canada, and that was the cheapest I could find for 99.99%. 99.9% probably fine but since I will consume it I wanted the best I could find and afford but another $27 is too expensive. I was going to cut the coin in half but it is much stronger than I expected. I think Bob Beck didn't use any salt at all and said to use PURE distilled water. I couldn't find any 99.99 wire. The wire I did find was overpriced.

http://educate-yourself.org/be/becknexusarticle1.s... article on blood electrification and silver colloid, many other good articles also. He says it cures cancer and many other things, I want to try for myself. The worst thing I've heard is someone's skin turning blue, but that is very rare.

Treatment of Skin Disease, uses a transition metal (like silver). Search for silver colloid in Google Patents, many patents for something that doesn't work or is dangerous. Now cancer medicines are so dangerous the peoples urine can burn people. And they prescribe this to people ! Same for radiation ! Many cancer cures out there but "only a drug can cure a disease" according to the FDA. I guess that means they were LYING when they said that lack of Vitamin C causes SCURVY, so giving vitamin C will CURE SCURVY even though it isn't a drug ! Not to mention all the other diseases from the lack of vitamins! And if you use the word "cure" you will go to prison reguardless if you are right or not if your not a DR and it isn't a drug !

Checkout the list of companies PATENTS that think silver colloid is effective.

https://www.google.com/search?tbm=pts&hl=en&q=silv...

Checkout cancer cures also, many that look effective, therefore illegal to use like vitamin C, D, K, ETC

Butt covering statement:

I am not a DR and this isn't medical advice, it is my advise to educate yourself as much as possible and learn the truth for yourself because I do not know myself, it is only my opinion. Anybody notice the DR notices posted here to make you think you will turn blue and die if you take silver colloid ? So why all the patents ? I believe in Bob Beck but haven't tested anything myself. Learn on your own any beware of any "official statements" from the FDA or CDC who are run by the drug companies.

tony545 months ago

You say not to add any salt then say to add SALINE which is a salt solution !

Yes it is a small amount but like you said that will create silver chloride, what gives ?

I understand why no metal container but why no plastic container ?

Any CHEMISTS OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP the next questions ?

  • Can 1 silver electrode be used instead of 2 since plating usually requires 1 electrode of the wanted metal on the positive and the other metal on the negative electrode. I silver electrode is cheaper than 2 electrodes.
  • Also, is there a way of measuring colloid by conductivity by using 2 quarters or other common STANDARD SIZE of electrode and measuring the conductivity in distilled water ?
  • What is the best current range ? I've heard that a constant current source is better. Is that true ?
  • Should this be refrigerated ?

The FDA and CDC are in the pocket of the drug companies and can't be trusted ! A few years ago, the FDA was trying to classify silver colloid as a DRUG and need to get a prescription for it. To get a prescription for something that is poisonous ? Obviously it isn't. There are MANY patents on it. They also try to say it will turn you blue but leave out that that is VERY RARE.

Can I use 1 copper negative with 1 silver positive electrode?

sysops --->> No way to edit or delete comments !? I don't want to flag it,only edit it!

@ Tony: Not sure if comments are edit-able. I can only feature or flag other people's, and flag or reply mine.

[Can I use 1 copper negative with 1 silver positive electrode?]
If you do this, won't you end up with a silver-plated copper electrode?
SOFISINTOWN (author)  tony545 months ago

@tony54

Tony I am not a chemist. I suggest to use a few drops of previously made CS for conductivity for subsequent batches.

Glass instead of plastic, because some plastics could be reactive.

I wouldn't use any other metal instead of silver. It's easy to mix + and - , and end up with a copper (or whatever) solution.

The commercial CS machines have a 24V-48V range. Lower range produces CS slower, but of better quality (allegedly).

I do put CS in the fridge, for the simple reason that it is -mostly- dark in there, and CS should not be exposed to light. I don't keep it more than a week.

Everyone and their wives is trying to get a patent for CS production, but commercially is not very exploitable, because the said everyone AND their wives can make it at home. However, if you search the internet, there is a gazillion ads selling CS and CS makers, and they all claim that "ours is better than all the others"

The big pharma companies stay away from it, because there is no money to be made, and no exploitable patents, since the stuff has been in existence for centuries.

DO NOT ADD SALT OR ANYTHING ELSE TO THE WATER – PERIOD. While salt will allow current to flow, it may create silver chloride, which can cause argyria over time.

CaseyCase1 year ago
I worked with a guy that used colloidal silver--the guy's skin had turned blue gray.
He obviously took too much, true colloidal silver if taken correctly will not turn you blue or grey (argyria) Although there were a few flare-ups of negative publicity regarding medicinal silver in the early 1900s, (due to the overuse of certain types of protein-bound silver compounds causing a discoloration of the skin called argyria and due to a supply of improperly prepared and unstable silver) reputable medical journal reports demonstrated that a properly prepared colloidal dispersion of silver was completely suitable with no adverse side effects. T. H. Anderson Wells reported in the Lancet (February 16th, 1918) that a preparation of colloidal silver was used intravenously. . . without any irritation of the kidneys and with no pigmentation of the skin.

Perhaps some C.S. guru could answer my question.

How does colloidal silver distinguish between good and bad bacteria or how does Good bacteria know to stay away from it? Antibiotics can kill good bacteria in humans in such number to create horrible, long term effects while trying to get rid of not even close to all bad bacteria.

If it is as the poster of this instructabile claims or any C.S. proponent that didn't tell them otherwise,
"Colloidal Silver is the most potent disinfectant and antiseptic, and on-contact killer of viruses, bacteria, fungi and all kinds of germs."
and I were to ingest this stuff like many do, wouldn't it be indiscriminate in killing my benificial and much needed gut flora also?
Wether ionic or colloidal forms would not matter to this point, for either of them to work internally in the manner the above quoted claim states, wouldn't they also kill any good bacteria in greater amount since there is much more good bacteria over what silver would be left to find the smaller amount of bad bacteria?

I mean 60-70% of the weight of properly digested human feces is bacteria of the good kind, seems like a lot of overkill and waste of silver just to find the bad bacteria in the gut and then in the rest of the body by what may be absorbed into the blood stream.

How can this be so benificial in the way it is claimed to work if there is no explaination for this orally ingested paradox of being a potent bacterial killer yet we need intestinal bacteria just to break down nutrients into working compounds like some B-vitamins?

Is it working in some other way than stated/expected or do I have to accept the fact that it is like Chemotherapy and I'm having to kill a lot of good things (that create more dead toxic waste to eliminate or absorb) while hoping it kills a few bad bacterial cells?
Or...
am I to assume that all of the feel goods of people who ingest this stuff is placebo effect, that it actually is deactivated in the stomach by acid or does it actually only work for topical use?
colloidal silver distinguishes between good and bad bacteria because the pathogens, free radicals, viruses, fungi and bacterium all contain negative charges where as the colloidal silver contain a positive charge. When the positive silver ions attach themselves to the negative charged particles of disease in our bodies they quickly disable the oxygen metabolism enzyme suffocating and discharging (killing) the pathogens. The silver particles then release the pathogens and they are cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic, and elimination systems. The body never develops a tolerance to colloidal silver and one can not overdose on it. It is safe for pregnant and nursing mothers. It is odorless, non stinging, harmless to the eyes, ears, harmless to human enzymes and healthy tissues and has no reactions with other medications. It can also aid in digestion aid in the regeneration of damaged cells and tissues reduce inflammation and strengthen the immune system. Colloidal silver silver will destroy pathogens and free radicals. It will help prevent colds, flu and other diseases caused by bacteria, virus, fungus or parasites. Unlike antiseptics , it does not destroy healthy tissue cells and may be safely applied to any part of the body, even the eyes. It is great for skin problems including sunburn or radiation burns. Doctors to day still use colloidal silver in many modern applications worldwide. Physicians use silver compounds in 70% or more of all burn centers in the US.

I just made my own colloidal silver for the first time. I think I have a problem though, I knocked the wire rod when I was removing it and the seaweed like particles all fell off into the solution. Will it be safe to consume with the particles in? Should I throw it away and start again?
Sean Foley1 year ago
Btw, don't put salt or saline in your mix you're just making silver chloride. Pure distilled water without the salt works fine just takes longer. After you make a batch put 10% of your last batch into your new one and it'll cut the make time. My CS is either transparent (<10ppm), or transparent amber (>15ppm). A red laser will make a beam through the CS when it is getting there it'll be a solid beam when @ 10ppm. You can use a TDS meter ($15) to exactly know... make sure you don't have it plugged in when you check! Opaqueness means impurity or manufacturing of salts. You don't want to ingest these.. good for external use though.
Sean Foley1 year ago
I don't know of any supposed medically backed effectiveness. But, I do know I destroyed these problems - a blood infection, toe nail fungus, sinus infections, and an abscessed tooth with it. Other than the first problem all of these things were chronic maladies that no amount of conventional meds were helping with. It's simple and cheap and even the medical profession uses it to treat diabetic ulcers in re-packed bandages. Big pharma owns the FDA... Stop trusting them.
Read this before you dismiss the effectiveness of colloidal silver:
http://lightparty.com/Health/HepatitusC-ColloidalSilver.html
Also, research Dr. Bob Beck and Dr Bob Becker/Colloidal silver. They worked extensively with colloidal silver and proved it's effectiveness over and over.

To Kiteman I have a 40-year long medical background but would choose colloidal silver or homeopathy any day over allopathic medicines. Every pharmaceutical item has its side effects, but unfortunately they are very involved in the finances of the health service I have seen hundreds of people truly (not temporarily) helped and often cured by these methods, whereas conventional medicine only serves to postpone the position of good health Typical response of a very narrow-minded person to demand evidence. I have seen the same demand for evidence drag the NHS to its knees You can have all the evidence you like and still not get a result in the form of a lasting cure or relief from symptoms. Im sticking with what I know and trust and that which has given me optimum health for many years As for your insistence on not recommending it to others, that is a very patronising remark that seeks to undermine the ability of individuals to discern for themselves which avenue they would put their trust in and pursue

Some info on Colloidal Silver for you

rimar20001 year ago
Good info, thanks for sharing it

But, why 27 Volts? Can't use 12 Volts and wait a little more time?
SOFISINTOWN (author)  rimar20001 year ago
Hi Rimar,
27 to 36 Volts is the optimal voltage for production of small uniform sized ions (silver particles) in 10-20 minutes.
Less voltage will be too slow or even ineffective, and you will have to add more saline (salt basically) into the water, resulting in the formation of silver chloride.

Unlike silver ions, silver chloride does not dissolve in water, and it forms small grayish particles at the bottom of the glass. (It is not toxic, but better left for other uses.)

As silver ions dissolve into the water, it becomes more conductive. The solution, if you want to use 12V batteries or ever a single 9V, would be to add a little colloidal silver in the water from a previous batch, instead of saline to make it more conductive. It would work.
Thanks for the info, SOFISINTOWN. Very interesting and useful.
SOFISINTOWN (author)  rimar20001 year ago
Hola Rimar,
27 a 36 voltios es la tensión óptima para la producción de pequeños tamaño uniforme iones (partículas de plata) en un plazo de 10 a 20 minutos. Menos voltaje será demasiado lento o incluso ineficaz, y tendrá que agregar más salina (sal básicamente) en el agua, resultando en la formación de cloruro de plata.
A diferencia de iones de plata, cloruro de plata no se disuelven en el agua, y se forman pequeñas partículas grisáceo en la parte inferior del cristal. (no es tóxico, pero mejor dejar para otros usos. )
Como iones de plata disolver en el agua, se vuelve más conductivo. la solución, si el usuario desea utilizar baterías de 12v o nunca un solo 9v, sería añadir un poco de plata coloidal el agua de un lote anterior, en lugar de suero salino para que sea más conductivo. Se puede hacer.

Kiteman and CayeyCase,

Colloidal Silver has indisputable disinfecting and medicinal qualities.
It is not however meant to be downed like double martini's daily.
It is not snake medicine, and it is used widely for disinfection in hospitals, and as antiseptic in wound dressings etc. It is also used as antibiotic in emergency situations.
