Collodial Silver and Candida

Candida and Colloidal Silver
(source of this article borrowed in full) 
"Yeast and mold infections are among the most difficult to treat of human ailments. Some of them are also among the most debilitating, such as candida yeast. Candida yeast will readily grow in any moist area of the body, such as the mouth ("thrush"), groin ("jock itch"), vagina ("yeast infection"), and intestines. Candida yeast is found naturally in the body, but is normally kept under control by friendly bacteria, such as acidophilus. But candida yeast often gets out of control following the use of antibiotics. The antibiotic kills off the friendly acidophilus and aerobic bacteria but does not affect the yeast. Without the friendly organisms such as the multiple strains of acidophilus to control it, candida grows fast.

The excess sugar of diabetes will also provide food for yeast, causing it to proliferate. Diabetics are therefore especially prone to this type of problem.

The intestines form perfect breeding grounds for candida. If the condition becomes bad enough, eventually the candida irritates an area of the intestine so much that their toxins penetrate the intestinal wall into the blood stream, where they can break down the immune system. Soon the candida infection itself passes through the intestinal wall and the white blood cells are consumed in their struggle to control the infection, further destroying the immune system. Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.

Candida can sometimes be controlled by increasing the acidity of the body, especially the area the yeast is growing in. This can be done by eating acid foods, such as vinaigrette salad dressings, and by applying vinegar mixed with water to the problem area. The best antibiotic commonly used to treat this condition is Nystatin. But Nystatin is only marginally effective against yeast, and remember that the problems probably started with the use of antibiotics to begin with.
Normally the body can handle minor yeast infections. However, when the yeast reaches the infectious stage wherein it is poisoning the blood and the immune system grows weak, such infections as athlete's foot, vaginal yeast infections, and fungus infections under the nails cannot be fought off.

A common treatment for the general infection is a diet completely free of all sugars, even fruit and starches along with taking Nystatin. However, anyone who has tried this treatment will tell you that this very strict diet is almost impossible to follow and does little more than keep the infection from proliferating.

The most effective tools against yeast infections of all kinds are acidophilus (yogurt), colloidal silver, and upper colonics. Combined, they can rid the body of yeast infections about as fast as the body can dispose of the toxins from dead cultures. However, disposing of these toxins can be a real problem, for two reasons. First of all, if the intestinal infection is killed off too sudden, it is possible for the intestines to become blocked. Obviously this can be serious and sometimes requires professional treatment to clear the bowels. Second, the body tends to dispose of toxins from the blood through the skin, which causes an itchy rash when the process is too fast. Toxins from dead spores can also strain the liver and kidneys. Therefore, it is wise to take as much acidophilus as is convenient, but to build up the use of colloidal silver gradually, usually starting with four oz. of colloidal silver a day, of about ten parts per million, or the equivalent. This is usually increased by about one oz. per day until a breaking out appears or the conditions are relieved. [The blogger is copying directly these obviously incorrect numbers. Sorry for the confusion.]

The colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.

Users continually report that colloidal silver will cure athlete's foot, vaginal yeast infections, as well as candida infections of the skin very quickly and then heals the damaged tissues. However, these are often signs of an inner infection. Until the yeast infection within the body is cured, external infections keep on returning. That is no reason not to treat these conditions. But if they return, it is time to look to the source of the problems as being inward. One can, of course, find explanations for the sources of the reinfection. However, a healthy body seldom succumbs to these infections.

Colloidal silver used internally and locally is the most effective treatment available today for all of these conditions. (refer to "The Candida Problem under Health")"

Holistic Health Talk with Cynthia Perkins, MEd
"Colloidal silver is a popular choice for many people in their arsenal against candida. It is believed to work not by attacking the pathogen, but rather deactivating enzymes that are responsible for the metabolism of the organism ... as I just don’t feel comfortable ingesting a metal for a long period of time. However, I would use it intermittently with other products ... BTW, a condition know as Argyria, a permanent discoloration of the skin – blue-gray, has occurred in people who ingest too much for too long. Although this is extremely rare. There’s a lot of controversy even in the health field about the use of silver. Some people swear by it’s healing properties, while others think it holds too many risks. ... That said, many people find colloidal silver to be very effective against not only candidiasis, but viruses and bacteria as well. It is touted to relieve everything from acne to yeast infections, from boils to strep throat and believed to be effective against over 650 organisms. I’m sorry I can’t give you a personal opinion on whether it’s effective or not, because I haven’t been able to take the product. When I’ve tried taking even 1/16 of a teaspoon it gives me a migraine within 20 minutes. I’m not sure if that is a result of die off or a reaction to the silver itself ..."
Collodial Silver Candida Treatment
"Two popular and natural means to rid the body of Candida infections are to change the body's PH through diet, or to treat the affected area either topically or internally, using a colloidal silver Candida treatment ... The colloidal silver Candida treatment fights fungi on contact both internally and externally. Topically, colloidal silver is safely applied without worry of adverse affects. Recommended applications are two to three times per day until the symptoms subside. Internally, colloidal silver dosage should be small at first, about 1 tablespoon a couple of times per day. It should be noted that when a person begins treating Candida internally, the release of toxic waste by the abundant dying fungus can cause a person to feel initially worse. This is referred to as Candida die off. For this reason it is suggested to begin treating the internal infection gradually at first, with small amounts of colloidal silver, in order to keep the waste substances to a level that is manageable for the body to expel ...  Colloidal silver naturally leaves the body via the urine so that there is no buildup in the body. It is one of the oldest forms of medicine that our civilization has used to treat a myriad of health issues."
Treating Candida Infections with Collodial Silver
"The main theme of Candida infection treatment is strengthening of the human immune system. Colloidal silver is the right choice in this regard as it is well known for its capability of fighting against fungus infections. Colloidal silver is nothing but very fine particles of pure silver, suspended in water. Colloidal silver has antimicrobial properties. A lot of research has been done recently on its functioning. Certain bacteria are essential to healthy body function, such as acidophilus. Several researchers claim colloidal silver only attacks the unfriendly pathogens and will not harm the friendly bacteria. But one must wonder how it can possibly differentiate. One explanation is that the friendly bacteria are aerobic, while unfriendly bacteria are anaerobic. Also, it is said that the silver does not attack bacteria directly, but rather decomposes certain enzymes the anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeast, and molds require. The silver acts as a catalyst and is not consumed in the process. It is probable that the reason the bacteria cannot develop a resistance to silver, as they do to antibiotics, is because silver does not [affect] them directly, but rather destroys the enzymes they depend on. This is in quite contrast to normal antibiotics, which kills friendly bacteria as well.

The germ fighting properties of colloidal silver has been adopted in soap making and such soaps are in vogue. Regular use of such soap not only helps in keeping the skin clean and healthy but also enhances the body immune system, thus preventing further infections of Candida. Even dermatologists recommend soaps with colloidal silver for the patients with candida infection. However, one must be selective while purchasing such soaps. Soaps containing colloidal silver with 20 ppm are considered the best for daily usage and they have optimum effect on fight against Candida infection."
Cancer, Candida and the Effects of Collodial Silver
"Heavy metals are bad for you. I’ve done a lot of research, and I’ve learned that the metal-based chemical toxins that you should avoid are aluminum, cadmium, carbon monoxide, chlorine, copper, fluoride, hexavalent chromium, industrial and agricultural chemicals, lead, mercury, nitrates and nitrites, nitrogen dioxide and ozone, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, synthetic and chemical drugs, and tobacco smoke. Silver, gold, and titanium are not on that list. Silver, gold, and titanium are HEALTHY TO INJEST (at the colloidal/monoatomic level), and they are actually EXTREMELY GOOD FOR YOU!!! Silver actually helps the body remove heavy metals through a chelating process!

One cup of 30ppm colloidal silver per day for a month can cost around $1000. Rich people fed their babies with silver spoons because they knew that it was good for them. The British royal family didn’t get the plague at a time when they were eating off of 100% silver plates. One cup of 30ppm colloidal silver per day for a month WILL get rid of the candida in your body, and then the cancer will fall like a house of cards when someone opens a window.

And you can monitor the progress with “the spit test”.

Pau D’Arco is also good against candida, but you never know if the brand you’re buying has enough of the active ingredient. And even if you buy Pau D’Arco tablets that have enough of the active ingredients, the tablets come in gelcaps (aka gelatin capsules). ALL gelcaps have MSG. MSG is an excitotoxin which actually provokes cancer growth. Many great cancer fighting herbs come in gelcaps, and the gelcaps cancel or weaken their effect.

Garlic is a good fighter against candida, but colloidal silver is the best. Well, colloidal titanium is the best, but I don’t know how long you take that. Silver it’s a month at one cup a day.

It’s important to use a high quality colloidal silver product. There are cases of people who used improperly made or home-made colloidal silver and ended up turning themselves BLUE (Argyria). This is not a side effect of colloidal silver, but a side effect of improperly made colloidal silver. Always be confident in the sources of any products that you choose to use."


  1. You should read this also:

  2. Very informative. I had a few Rife treatments last summer while in the states and I think they did help me.

  3. What colloidal silver soap brands do you recommend?

    1. I've never used a colloidal soap, but have really benefited by Grandpa's Pine Tar soap. Great for ache, itches, and a lot of skin ailments. Supposed to be toxin free, and so the reason I use it.

  4. Just so I understand. Grandpa's Tar soap is beneficial to use if I have skin problems from a systemic candida infection?

    1. No, I was using it long before I had candida. It doesn't have all the chemicals that other soaps have so is better for the skin pH. Now that I have candida, I don't need to be inundated with chemical toxins, esp b/c the skin is a huge organ that is permeable and what is on the skin affects the blood and lymph. My house and "cosmetics" are toxin minimal, for maintenance and preventative reasons. I rather doubt it helps candida specifically. Fels naptha (sp?) is another soap that might be better as a combatant for candida fungus. I use that soap after being around poison ivy and it's pretty good about washing that PI oils away! Might be good actually against candida fungus. It smells "nice" LOL.

  5. Ok. Reading what you said about how the skin affects the blood and lymph makes total sense to me. I find that when I use soaps like Irish Spring, my systemic candida seems to get worse, my overall energy level,and especially my oral thrush. I'm just looking for a soap that won't cause those reactions while I take supplements to fight the internal candida battle. I will give the pine tar a go. Thank you.

    1. After showering, coconut oil rubbed into the skin also helps fight candida. I used to rub it regularly on my neck b/c had candida in the deep throat region. It did help as well as moisture ... and thankfully had a good smell too.

  6. This information is really a breakthrough for me. Thank you very much Cheryl.

  7. I had a doctor tell me that I got oral thrush FROM colloidal silver. That, in using colloidal silver for (many) acute respiratory infections over that past couple of years, I killed off all the good bacteria and allowed yeast to get a stronghold. Now I'm afraid to use it, but none of the OTC (probiotics, Pau D, Arco, CandiCleanse, Candizyme and Nystatin) treatments are doing much good and I fear that all I'm doing is making it stronger. I have no insurance, can't afford stronger pharmaceusticals. Any suggestions before this turns into cancer??

    1. Wow, never heard of colloidal silver being the indirect cause of thrush, but you know, it does make sense about it killing off the bad as well as the good bacteria. I think if I were in your shoes, I'd seriously consider my diet in regard to (1) maintaining a pH of around 6.8-7.2, and that takes a high veggie diet and virtually no meat. Best to eliminate glutens, sugar, vinegar and anything fermented. And (2) don't give up on the probiotics, or at least make sure you're taking the kind that fresh and needs refrigeration. You sound like where I'm at (still). I depleted my good bacteria so badly that replenishing them is taking forever.

      And just a note, cancer can't thrive if your pH is 6.8-7.2

  8. Hi, I've been struggling with Candida for a few years now but learned for sure that's what it is just recently. I see in your blog you have lots of good info, but it's a lot of different protocols. Is your candida undercontrol now? and did you try the colloidal silver protocol? Thank you, very desperate here

    1. Hi Alize, I wish I could say that my candida is gone but about a year ago I resigned myself to the fact that I'll probably battle it all of my life. I ... have ... tried ... EVERYTHING! I think that the problem lies in the source of how I got it. I was exposed to very bad water for over 2 1/2 years, and I stupidly didn't break my contract even knowing the water was bad. I had no idea I would have such life-overturning results. Anyway, my candida is 95% controlled with diet. I do allow myself to eat out once in a while if I am very very careful what goes in the mouth and keep my pH around 6.8 or so. Good luck with your struggle. I'll be glad to help answer questions to get you on the path to recovery because I certainly know the meaning of "desperate". [BTW, I don't think you can get rid of candida just doing one protocol. All of them helped somewhat but they also depleted my vitamins A & D, which candida also depletes. Something to watch.]

  9. OMG! You are spreading such disgusting misinformation!! Silver is poisonous to humans. Externally it kills pretty much everything, compromising cell membranes. The person that was getting thrush -not suprised! Good diet yes. Poison yourself with silver NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Anonymous.., If silver kills everything externally, then I would have no fingers, ear lobes,for I wear SILVER rings & earrings. Plus many teens especially, with all the piercing they do, would be missing or have major cell damage (as you state), all over their bodies. The ELITE from centuries ago would have no tongs from eating with SILVER, silverware,cups,wine cups & plates. More recently, the FDA approved a breathing tube with a fine coating of silver, after it was established that it reduced the risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia. And that’s just one example of the many roles silver plays in medicine today. It is also added to bandages and wound-dressings, catheters and other medical instruments. “In the 1970′s, Dr. Robert O. Becker at Syracuse Medical University began to intensively research colloidal silver. He discovered that silver not only kills bacteria, but it actually killed bacteria that were resistant to all known antibiotics with no undesirable side effects.” [1]

    Colloidal silver can be applied topically as well as taken internally. However, long term internal use is not encouraged “because ingestion of colloidal silver does damage the delicate gut microbiome by killing beneficial bacteria though not as extensively as drug based antibiotics.” It is terribly annoying when someone makes a reply to a post that doesn't bother to research the subject, & just blurts out stupid statements, that don't make sense. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU GIVE AN OPINION.
