Making Colloidal Silver at Home | Natural Antibiotic

Colloidal silver has been used for centuries to treat a myriad of ailments, from wound infections to lung diseases. The ancient Greeks and Romans used silver to increase healing and prevent disease. In the early 1900s, colloidal silver gained popularity as an antibiotic before penicillin was discovered. During World War I, it was used to prevent infection in war wounds. In the 1930s, colloidal silver was marketed as a cure-all for a variety of diseases and conditions. However, by the 1950s, antibiotics became the preferred treatment for bacterial infections, and the use of colloidal silver diminished. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in colloidal silver for its potential antiviral properties, particularly against the herpes virus and HIV. 

Colloidal silver has powerful antimicrobial properties that allow it to eliminate a wide range of viruses, bacteria, and fungi. For our family it’s used to treat infections, such as ear/eye infections, and skin disorders like acne and eczema. We use is on burns and cuts. It’s been used in our family to treat double pneumonia and other lung conditions. It can also help reduce inflammation and boost immunity.

Apart from its medicinal uses, colloidal silver can be used as a water disinfectant. Our family uses it in a spray bottle to be sprayed on surfaces to disinfect them, like on kitchen counters, doorknobs, and even toothbrushes. We typically only use it in this form for when someone is sick with the flu or similar illness.

We also use colloidal silver on the homestead with our animals. We’ve nebulized it for one of our chickens and successfully treated her for a respiratory infection. We also add it to their water to help boost their immune system. Along with using it as a disinfectant in the coop during its yearly deep cleaning. 

For our family it’s more cost effective to purchase a generator and brew our own colloidal silver vs purchasing it from the health food store.
