This blog post is to help answer question on colloidal silver & how to use it & how amazing it can be when used right, plus I also review a great colloidal silver generator & tell you why I picked it & why it is so great!
What is Colloidal silver?
Colloidal silver is a suspension of tiny silver particles in water; a solid dispersed throughout a liquid base in this manner is known in chemistry as a colloid.
I have used colloidal silver off and on for over 20 years, but it was always made by a company till about 4 years ago I started getting it from a friend who generated her own, that sent me researching to find the best, most effective & safest generator I could find in my price range.
I found that the issues most people have with colloidal silver (getting blue/gray skin being one) come from making it improperly & improperly using it also from using crude generators & from using home generated colloidal silver with a large particle size the body can not use.

Info: COLLOIDAL SILVER AS A PREVENTATIVE SUBSTANCE
As a preventative, colloidal silver is unsurpassed. Sufficient colloidal silver taken daily precludes infection, viruses, disease, contagion outbreak and serious burn toxicity. The daily ingestion of colloidal silver is like having a second immune system. It lessens the load on the body’s natural immune system, and effectively kills the many thousands of viruses and bacteria that are present throughout the body
In addition, it lessens the toxicity due to the average amount of virus and bacterial activity that occurs naturally in the body. However, tests have shown that, due to the high absorption of silver into the small intestine, the “friendly bacteria in the large intestine are unaffected”.
This “second immune system” acts parallel to, and independent of, the body’s own first line of defence, which is a major advantage in warding off outbreaks of influenza or other germ, plaque or pestilence. By taking colloidal silver at the correct dose rate is to have protection that is unsurpassed against serious burn toxicity. (article here)
All my research kept leading me to one generator The Silver Edge Micro Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, over & over again it came out on top in research, so I saved & finally a year ago I bought one (while it was on sale $100 off) Steve sent it very fast & has awesome customer support as well as a great facebook page

The Micro Particle Colloidal silver Generator by The Silver Edge
First I must say I already loved colloidal silver before buying the Silver Edge generator, but I for sure could not wait to get this generator & see if there was a difference, & oh boy I went from loving colloidal silver to in total amazement of colloidal silver, & since we can make a QT so cheaply I expanded the way I use it. Check out my other blog post “My purse is a total mini natural health pharmacy on my shoulder” where I say how great colloidal silver is.
I did use colloidal silver in my cancer treatment 3 years ago & I did get some made with a Silver Edge generator at the time as well, but I had no idea till after how good colloidal silver was for cancer, maybe that’s part of why I did so well..
But back to my generator, it arrived speedy, they ship fast, it comes with a timer so that saying “set it & forget it” comes to mind :)
I made my first 10 PPM batch without a hitch & if I had an issue they offer a video to help. Let me tell you having colloidal silver in our home has very fast moved to the top 10 most used items that we use for everything
When taking for health put under your tongue & hold for a minute then swish in your mouth a minute & swallow, also do not store or put in plastic, use dark glass bottles/jars or a glass bottle/jar kept in a dark cupboard or sit jar in a brown paper bag etc
Ways we use Colloidal silver other than for health, with baking soda to wash our face, exfoliate, to spray hair, in shampoo recipes, in cleaners, to repel roaches, to spray face & skin as a moisturizer & prevent acne, pimples & blackheads, spritzed on foods & drinks as we put them away to keep fresh longer, to wash fruits & veges , in eyes for allergy eyes, pink eye,in our water to purify it, deodorant, mixed with clay powder in a mask, in dishwasher & dish water, in laundry, in bath water, in our animals water & on their fur & for sores Etc , ETC & etc oh & ETC
As I said we do take it for health, it’s a must for building the immune system , have you ever thought about rather our bodies could actually be deficient in silver? here are a few great articles that cover that topic, Article 1 and Article 2
A great video Pets and Colloidal Silver
I also have a whole board on Pinterest for Colloidal silver: Health: Colloidal Silver, It works!
And check out this blog post I did on using colloidal silver for allergies
In closing I love my generator & want to get a generator for family that lives in another state, I also share my home generated Colloidal silver with local friends & family, I highly recommend this generator for ease of use & an awesome product, I have gone just over a year on my original wires that came with the generator & I use it 1 to 2 times a week, I just ordered more wires from www.thesilveredge.com just to be ready when the ones I have are no longer working.
UPDATE Feb 27, 2013 :) I just had to call customer service at www.thesilveredge.com the lady who answered was very nice & friendly & helped me with my problem by treating me like a human & she acted human
And that my friends is another reason on top of so many more why I recommend their Micro Particle colloidal silver generator above all others(it is safe & effective is the big reason)
Plus my issue was very easily resolved & we even had a laugh.. Thank you to Steve for having such great Customer service at The Silver Edge 1-888-528-0559
