Pocket Silver® lets you make colloide silver yourself at home quickly and easily. The effect silver has against bacteria and funguses has been known for many hundreds of years, but only modern technology has made it possible to actually produce colloid silver. With Pocket Silver®, you can take it home with you, along on trips or even visit friends. All you need is normal tap or mineral water, a glass and Pocket Silver® to make your own colloid silver. Silver's proven substantial antibiotic and antimycotic effect has been known for ages, although preparations containing silver also have a place in classical medicine since burn ointments frequently contain silver to prevent infections and silver is used to sterilise drinking water.

We call minute particles of silver dissolved in water colloide silver. In contrast to silver ointments and similar preparations, it has the benefit of a significantly increased surface at constant volume, thus maximising the silver's effect. While colloid silver's effect is often no less than pharmaceutical anti-infective agents (and often exceeds it), there are no side-effects known from silver. Silver is even licensed as a food-additives (E174). You can take colloid silver orally, apply it to certain areas of your skin or even wounds. Please remember to consult a medical expert on how and whether you should use colloid silver before first use and avoid use if you are allergic to silver. Consult with your physician or chemist if you are regularly taking medication before using colloid silver. But, many people have very encouraging things to say about a treatment with colloid silver and the success of treatment with it all around the world is very promising.

A Little Bit of History

Silver has a success story in medicine going back more than 7,000 years. For instance, we find silver being used in the ancient world to accelerate the healing of wounds, fight infections, but first and foremost to preserve drinking water. We might mention a case going back to very early China with the developed form of acupuncture where they preferred to use silver needles in its early development and that continues to the present day. We can also find proof of the fact that it was consciously used as a medicine since silver was listed in the Roman pharmacopoeia (better known as the official book of medicines). Our ancestors here also took advantage of the effect of silver since they not only used silver for medical purposes, but also for preserving food. An especially vivid example is the use of a silver coin in milk for retarding the fermentation process by reducing lactic acid bacteria.

The modern history of silver in medical applications only begins at the end of the 19th century with the major research work of C. von Nägeli (1871-1938). Until the inception of wide-spread use of chemically manufactured antibiotics in the Second World War, using silver or preparations containing silver was one of the mainstays of classical medicine. When penicillin was discovered and antibiotics were subsequently developed, silver was no longer in the focus of medical application of the broad public since there was a wide-spread euphoria on the supposed omnipotence of antibiotics used to heal all sorts of diseases. However, we may also attribute this to the fact that, in contrast to artificially manufactured medicines, silver cannot be patented because it is a natural product. At the onset of the 90's, the problem of certain strains of bacteria forming a resistance to chemically manufactured antibiotics became so extreme that silver is becoming increasingly important as a supplemental or alternative medicine these days.  

Classical Medicine

Until penicillin was discovered at the end of the 30's, silver was of major importance for fighting infections. Penicillin and the numerous antibiotics developed in the aftermath meant that silver lost the major importance it once had for classical medicine. The euphoria on the efficacy of these medicines overshadowed the fact for many years that very strong antibiotics also have intense side-effects. Even in the 60's, people still believed that they had solved the problem of bacterial infectious diseases altogether. However, undifferentiated use of massive amounts of antibiotics in humans and animals, especially in fattening agricultural animals, has created the widely known problem today of resistance being built up to it.

That's why many people are coming back to silver as a trusted form of medical treatment. There is no known form of resistance to it so that silver is being used in a wide range of applications in classical medicine today. For instance, hospitals today are applying Credé's method of putting a one-percent silver nitrate solution in the eyes of new-borns to prevent gonococcus infections (tripper pathogens) which could cause blindness. This is the law for all babies born in the United States and Germany, although it has not been prescribed by law in Switzerland for some years due to a major decline gonococcus infections and prenatal treatment of this disease. Likewise, burn ointments often contain silver to reduce the danger of infection with large-area burns and victims of fires are laid upon silver-coated blankets. Silver-coatings in plastic catheters prevent bacteria from spreading. This is another field where the silver's efficacy has been proven in the last few years, leading to major use of silver-coated catheters. Recent studies have demonstrated that bone growth in broken bones is greatly accelerated by using silver. Unfortunately, one of the things that stands in the way of silver being used on a wider scale for a variety of infections (in contrast to all pharmaceutical products that are chemically manufactured) is the fact that silver cannot be patented because it is a natural substance.

Coloid silver

We call a suspension of particles of silver in water coloid silver. In other words, these silver particles are suspended and their sizes range from 1 to 1,000 nanometres (1 nm = one millionth mm). Gravity only has a very slight effect on these minute particles since it is countered by Brownian molecular motion and the Van Der Waals effect. This means that the particles repel one another and remain suspended. We can produce coloid silver in particle diameters of a few nanometres and a 1-nanometre particle of silver consists of 300 silver atoms. There are three reasons why these minute dimensions of the particles of silver are of importance:

  1. Their surface area is dramatically increased at constant volume. We can easily comprehend this if we imagine that a silver ball is rolled up in a thin foil. Its surface area is much greater than that of the ball. If quantity is constant, we can substantially intensify the effect of the silver since much more silver is in contact with pathogens.
  2. The minute size of these particles is instrumental in rapidly and effectively spreading silver in the body.
  3. Bacteria are also microscopically small (from 1 mm to 1,000 nm) with viruses being even smaller (25 to 1000 nm). Coloid particles of silver are even smaller than viruses, allowing them to interact with them. You'll find more information in the books and medical articles listed in our bibliography.

Application

Here's How to Produce It

The best thing for making colloid silver is a 2 dl glass (or a cup made of ceramics). Fill the glass with normal tap or mineral water (without carbonation). After you set the desired period, hang the machine on the glass and press the start button. Please make sure that at least two-thirds of the silver rods are immersed in water and avoid touching the glass during operation. Adjust the period of operation according to the type, quality and hardness of the water (we recommend 1 to 2 minutes). As soon as you can see that the water has turned a clear silvery colour, it has passed the silver's solubility product in water and this is the best time to stop for oral application. You can also improve results by stirring it slightly.

If you intend to use on the outside of the body (for instance, with compresses, as a rub or immersion, etc.), leave it in a little bit of longer since the silver precipitant (usually silver chloride) also acts as a disinfectant. Don't forget that silver's solubility product is temperature-dependant in water. This means that you could absorb much more silver ions in warm water, so that you should use warm (not hot) water if you want a greater effect. Also, please remember to use the colloid silver solution quickly and make a new solution if you need some later.

Here's How to Use It

You can use colloid silver on the outside of the body either by rubbing it in or applying a compress to the place to be treated. Immersing the parts of the body to be treated in solution has also proved its worth, especially in the form of foot baths. You can also apply colloid silver orally, although you should not use anymore than 3 x 2 dl a day. Although there are no known serious side-effect from silver, please do not apply a dosage exceeding 2 dl per day for preventative purposes over a longer period of time. If you give children colloid silver, reduce the recommended amount in accordance with the child's body weight. Please read the package leaflet for other information or contraindications.
