Colloidal Silver Generators

What does a person want in the way of a colloidal silver generator? Before we answer that, we have to examine how that person got to the point where they wanted to make colloidal silver. No one starts their colloidal silver Journey by deciding they like to make this stuff. Colloidal silver itself had to be needed. The person had to be suffering from some ailment or irritation. They had to be at the point where they were willing to try using something besides what was prescribed by the medical establishment. The medical establishment would have to have failed them. In my case, and the case of many others, it was repeated sinus infections that had failed to be corrected by allopathic medicine. I had gone the whole route of ear nose and throat specialist, ear nose and throat surgery, and allergists. And nothing prevented recurring sinusitis. I tried colloidal silver in desperation. Like most people, I looked askance at alternative medicine as being in the domain of snake oil salespeople and people with a belief system that rendered them susceptible to those salesmen. I finally bought a bottle of colloidal silver for $80 for 8 oz and proceeded to flood my sinus cavities with it. It brought me Immediate relief and has continued to do so. Nothing else had worked. I became a believer. Now, I’m the sort of person who just doesn’t know when to quit. I have a big enough ego not fully to understand my intellectual limits. I don’t know when to stop. I decided to research The subject thoroughly. Most of the literature available on the issue was in chemistry. My knowledge of chemistry needs to be improved. That proved to be an advantage. The chemical fraternity had in the past believed in certain limits regarding the degree of proportions of silver in a solution of water. It was common knowledge that 25 parts per million was the solubility limit for silver in pure water. It was necessary to coat the silver particles with a substance with positive buoyancy, i.e., a tendency to float to keep the silver particles in the solution above the 25 PPM density. That was done with various techniques, but the positive charge was removed from the particles that are ions. Unfortunately, the silver only became effective once the coating was digested. The silver particle met with oxygen atoms, combining with oxygen atoms, making silver oxide. In this process, silver ions are produced, which kill the microbes and cause health problems. Lacking competence in the chemical Realm, I investigated the process of making colloidal silver electronically. The final Authority in the electrolysis process is a historical figure, Michael Faraday. He wrote the rules of electrolysis. I began researching the process in depth. That had never been done as the chemists ruled the area and were accepted as authorities because the medical community was much more comfortable with chemistry than electricity. Chemists and electronics people should talk to each other more. That is changing because of increasing work on battery Technology, but there is still a way to go.
I had a resource in this journey that was of great use. It was still the early days of the internet, but valuable work was being done on user groups using net groups. The one that I was on was scientific alt scientific electrical engineering design. I started A conversation about colloidal silver. At this time, the subject was immediately trashed by the blue man. This stuff would turn you blue if you were stupid enough to use it. Of course, what they were talking about was silver nitrate. That is what people were calling colloidal silver. Well, okay, it is silver, and it is colloidal. It’s silver and in solution, so it’s colloidal silver. That’s the problem.
There’s a lot of stuff that manufacturers can call colloidal silver. That’s why we should change the name of what we will try to make. We want to create the silver ion effectively without any substance other than water. We can tell whether or not it’s the smallest particle we want By the simple fact that it will be clear. Particles larger than 20 NM will start to interfere with the blue part of the spectrum, making the solution yellow or amber. Some still think it’s colloidal silver only if it is Amber because that’s all they know how to make. It so happens that the exact opposite is true. It’s easy to understand that for a given volume of water, there would be proportionately more particles of a smaller radius than a larger radius. Is this not just common sense? Is it also common sense that tells us that the more particles, the better the chance they have of contacting a microbe that we want to kill? I’m not going to belabor this point. It should be obvious and will be again if you have come this far. To illustrate this, I have gone into much greater detail on the “the art of making the colloidal silver” website. So, we come to a flat statement: when you look at colloidal silver, the fact that it is clear means more and smaller particles. Any color indicates that the particles have combined, resulting in far fewer particles and a less effective solution. Now, how do we achieve this as far as the making of it is concerned? We need some way to stop this Runaway phenomenon. Better yet, prevent it from starting to begin with. How do we do this? We limit the amount of current. How do we do this?
We use what’s called a resistor. A resistor restricts the flow of current. It works much the same way as a faucet valve for water flow. There is a Formula called Ohm’s law. It states that for a given difference of potential in volts, the current will equal the number of volts divided by the number of ohms. Let’s say, for example, that we want to keep a very low current, one milliamp. Let’s say we have a 30-volt power supply. What resistor value do we need to achieve this 30 /30,000 or in the way we call resistors 30k?
To begin the process, if we use pure distilled water, which we must, it won’t be one milliamp. Pure distilled water has a relatively High Resistance and low conductivity. In the beginning, the current will be much lower than one milliamp and will only gradually increase. That is because if the water is distilled. It will have a relatively High Resistance and low conductivity. That adds to the total resistance in the circuit, so if the water has a resistance of 30,000 and the resistor is 30k, it will have a total of 60k. Therefore, with a current of only one-half of 1 milliamp 500 microamps, you can watch the current gradually increase over time if a millimeter is inserted in a series in the circuit. That is good to do, and it is why, in our starter kit, we included a multimeter to enable you to do just this and watch the progress. The resistance of the water can be varied by moving the silver closer together. That will decrease the resistance. With a certain amount of experimentation for your particular setup, your pieces of silver in your container, you will devise a method for a consistent result. You will be able to produce 10 PPM colloidal silver clear repeatedly. That is as good or better as you can buy anywhere at any shop or by mail. You will be satisfied knowing you have a valuable resource for your health. You don’t have to believe that anyone has made it correctly.

Three factors will determine the quality of the colloidal silver that you make. The first is the water that you use. It must be distilled to a high degree of purity. You will need to check that the water you are using is pure enough. The distilled water sold in grocery stores in 1-gallon containers will generally be good enough. You will still need some way to check it. That can be done with a conductivity meter or by some method included in the design and function of whatever generator we use.

The second factor is the purity of the silver that we use. We want silver ions and preferably no other metals. We want to make a solution containing silver ions, as they are proven to benefit significantly. Many different metals can do us great harm. We must take every precaution to avoid taking toxic metals into our bodies. That is why we use only 9999 silver wire and insist on a certificate of analysis showing the present impurities. In the case of the highest quality silver, the most significant contamination will be copper, which is not bad in small amounts. That will be the case with silver that comes directly from silver ore. If you buy silver without an assay certificate, it could contain scraps from manufacturing facilities that alloy silver with any other metals. So it’s not just a matter of it being 9999, but what is the nature of the additional .01%. When we make colloidal silver, the result is a liquid solution with silver in parts per million (PPM). It makes no sense to try to economize on this. If we consider making colloidal silver at a strength of 10 PPM, for example, 1 ounce of silver wire could theoretically make 100,000 ounces or 1500 gallons of colloidal silver.

The third factor is the amount of time that we allow the process. Hydrogen will appear at the cathode (the negatively charged electrode, where electrons enter the water), and oxygen will appear at the anode (the positively charged electrode). In the days of the 3 9 V battery and silver coins method, we would wait until we saw a cloud. We were told that pieces of silver had formed in the water and stopped the process soon after. In reality, the cloud was created by hydrogen and oxygen microbubbles which meant that the process was in a runaway mode. If you were lucky, disconnecting the batteries at that point would perhaps get you a five PPM colloidal silver solution. It would not keep its strength very long as the larger particles quickly collide with and absorb the silver ions. A few of us promoted using current limitations to prevent the runaway condition. Some of us noted that the higher resistance we used, the better results we obtained in higher PPM and stability. Many of us tried every conceivable method of stirring to allow the use of a higher current to speed up the process. All of my efforts in this direction failed. I could not get around the fact that for a given surface area of silver anode only a certain amount of current was allowed. There is a region surrounding the anode called the Nernst diffusion area. That region will only allow a specific density of ions to exist before they agglomerate into larger particles. So for those with your setups for making colloidal silver, try reducing the current and allowing more time, and let us know the results.
