How to Use Colloidal Silver to Treat Colds

Silver's antibacterial and antiviral benefits may have been evident as early as the Dark Ages, when British royalty appeared immune to the deadly bubonic plague. Despite the widespread decimation of millions in Europe, those of noble birth who ate and drank from sterling silver dinnerware did not perish. This is the basic premise that is used to explain the ability of silver to increase resistance to illness. Colloidal silver, which is a liquid supplement that contains pure silver particles suspended in water, is still used today to treat illnesses such as the common cold. Speak with your doctor before using colloidal silver to treat your condition.

Step 1

Take an oral teaspoon of colloidal silver in water suspension three times daily at the onset of symptoms.

Step 2

Decrease the amount of daily colloidal silver to half after three days. This is equivalent to half a teaspoon three times daily.

Step 3

Continue to administer colloidal silver at the current dosage until symptoms subside. According to the website Silver Medicine, use of colloidal silver is generally stopped when symptoms subside. Speak with your doctor about the safe duration of use of colloidal silver for your condition.

Step 4

Monitor yourself for symptoms of adverse reaction, such as an allergic response that would cause sneezing, itching and irritation of the skin or mucous membranes. Keep in mind that after the third or fourth day of taking colloidal silver, you may feel tired and have body aches. If you have any adverse allergic reactions to colloidal silver, stop using it immediately.

Tip

Check with your doctor before using any dietary supplement. Purchase a high-quality colloidal silver, which can be identified by holding the bottle up to the light. True silver particles will block light, and the liquid will appear dark, not cloudy.
