Make Your Own Colloidal Silver - Multiple Methods

Basic and Powerful method by Steve Cox


I discovered a simple addition that makes everything else fall neatly into place for the Alternative
Medicine Research Foundation's original colloidal silver generator design: Saran Wrap!
lacing Saran Wrap over the top of the container and poking it do!n into the !ater in the middle
prevents over"spray from reaching the clips and has the additional #enefit of limiting open air contact
during the electrolytic process$ With the addition of this final piece to the pu%%le& I #elieve !e have a
completed colloidal silver generator design that guarantees consistent results !ith no undesired side"
processes occurring$
A picture is !orth a thousand !ords& as they say& so I have prepared five images& la#eled !ith
e'planations and instructions as necessary$ I think you'll find the overvie! pictures #elo! especially
useful in making all this clear to the potential #uilder$

!ould fit on the side of the vase I use to
make our colloidal silver$
1ere's !hat the silver #ar looks like
!hen it's properly #ent and placed on
my colloidal silver generator$
2sing Saran Wrap to cover the top of the container prevents moisture from reaching the clips and thus
#ecoming part of the electrolytic process$ )his simple addition assures you of pure colloidal silver$

*dditional Su%%estions +rom ,eaders-
Firstly& I prefer a ( Buart glass mayonnaise =ar !ith a plastic top& I'd #e a little concerned a#out the
metal top of the mason =ar leaching into the silver !ater& =ust my opinion$
My preference for the alligator clips are the plated or stainless steel type to prevent copper from
leaching into the !ater if splashed$
Mentioned in the article #ut not sho!n in the picture: you should add a fish tank '#u##ler' !ith tu#ing&
to the system to keep mi'ing the solution !hile the added o'ygen from the #u##ler helps to keep the
particles small$ Some #re!ers actually ad o'ygen drops to the solution to #reak up the silver particles&
so the added o'ygen #rought in #y the #u##ler is an added #onus& not to mention the mi'ing action that
it provides$ -arger particles can not #e a#sor#ed into the #lood from the lining of the stomach so it is
important to keep the silver particles as small as possi#le$ >nly the smallest particles are effective
against viruses and many #acteria as !ell$
As far as the electrodes go& I prefer using < 3anadian Maple leaf silver /8 pieces placed a#out ($<8D
apart$ )hey are graded at $++++O silver and !ill last for ever$ I #uy them un"circulated and sealed in
plastic #y the mint& from a coin dealer in my area for a#out /A or /: ea$ )hey have much more surface
area than the silver !ires so more is availa#le to conduct electricity and drop silver particles into the
solution$ @ou can either drill holes through the top of the plastic =ar"cover and clip into place from the
outside Cso clips don't come into contact !ith !aterE$ >r as I recently did " drill small holes through the
tops of the coins and run $++++ silver !ires through and stick through the =ar cover to clip leads to$ )he
coins !ill hang from the !ires into the !ater$ 2sing silver !ire to hang off of allo!s the coins to #e
almost completely su#merged Cmore surface areaE$ 5e sure coins are secured so they do not touch
together and short your circuit causing the po!er supply to #lo! out$
When colloidal silver starts #re!ing in the distilled !ater& the !ater has very little conductivity and the
particles #reak off in very small si%es Cmost useful to the #odyE$ As silver starts getting into the !ater&
the !ater #ecomes much more conductive and the particles start getting larger and larger as the !ater
#ecomes more conductive& until you can actually see the particles and they can #ecome huge !hich are
totally useless to the #ody& they call this silver mud Csomething you don't !antE$
@ou need a !ay to monitor this and control the current$ 2sing the plan sho!n on the link& it is good to
ad an amp meter or digital multi"meter that can #e purchased at Wal"Mart for a#out /(A$ Hust connect it
in series !ith the positive lead of your 3S generator$ this can also act as a circuit #reaker in case you
accidentally hit the < leads together$ When you start the #re!ing process your distilled !ater !ill
pro#a#ly read a#out (99u"amps C(;(9 of a milliampE$ @ou !ill see the num#ers on the amp meter rise
as micro particles of silver drops into the solution and the !ater #ecomes more conductive to
electricity$
As the conductivity rises and the num#ers go up on the meter& your particles !ill also get larger$ @ou
need to ad a current limiting device to the circuit$ A potentiometer or varia#le resister !orks okay& #ut
has to #e monitored and manually ad=usted to keep the current do!n$
@ou can automatically control the current #y adding a 'current limiting diode'$ Insert the diode in series
!ith the positive lead of the 3S generator CanodeE& #e sure that the little stripe on the diode is pointing
to!ard the po!er supply side of the circuit and not to!ard the electrode or alligator clip leading to the
electrode$
2sing the current limiting diode !ill allo! the current to maintain at a set amount$ Many people that
#re! their o!n 3S& limit there current to stay under ( ma$ I've done a lot of e'perimenting and actually
prefer keeping the current much lo!er& around ma' $<: milliamps& using a 09.73 po!er supply$ )his
keeps the solution crystal clear& !hich tells me that the end product has e'tremely small particles$ )here
is a slight metallic taste$ @ou kno! the 3S is there #ecause !hen the solution is done& if you
temporarily #ypass the diode you !ill see the !ater conductivity is no! a#out ($< milliamps& (9Qs
greater than at the start$ Results confirmed !ith a W) meter Cmore a#out this laterE$
@ou can purchase various 'current limiting diodes' to keep it at ( milliamps& $8 milliamps& or less& and
e'periment for yourself$ When I run at a ( milliamp limit& I find some larger particles that I end up
having to filter out !ith an un#leached coffee filter$ If not filtered these particles !ill pro#a#ly =ust drop
out of solution after #eing refrigerated for a couple of days& as they are actually not colloidal$ )he lo!er
current prevents the need to filter and lessens the chance of adding contaminants or paper dust to the
solution$
I had trou#le finding these diodes at Radio Shack$ I got the #est price from Mouser$com and the service
!as great$ I plan to #uild my Auto"4od%illa getting most of the parts from Mouser as !ell$ 1ere is a
catalog link for the current limiting diodes from mouser$ )ip: odd num#ers same money " a (ma limit

e'tra insulated !ire and alligator clips for hooking up solar cells;panel
a soldering iron and some solder Csilver solder is #estE
a ply!ood #ase for silicone gluing the
cells into place
some scotch tape Cto temporarily hold
cells in place !hile assem#lingE
high Buality distilled !ater
(;< Buart mason =ar
t!o ++$++O pure silver !ires or silver
coins
!ooden chopstick& or an aBuarium air
pump Coften found at thrift shopsE for
agitating the solution
t!o insulated alligator clips& from
Radio Shack
sa! or S!iss army knife for cutting
!ood for cap and #ase
!ood glue for =ar top
clear silicone adhesive
electric drill and #it
plastic lid Cas a #ase for Mason =arE
!ood scraps to make =ar cap;!ire holder
Additional supplies
Funnel to transfer the silver eli'ir into storage #ottles
scotch#rite pad for cleaning silver !ires after each use
Makin% the &enerator from individual cells
CI( to (( are optional if you are using a store"#ought panelE
($ 3ut !ooden #ase to fit solar cells Cadd an e'tra inch or so if you are going to frame the #ase to
protect the cells$
<$ 3ut !ooden cross #ar that fits top of Mason =ar C(D !ider than =ar mouthE& and t!o small end
pieces$
0$ 7rill t!o holes one inch apart in the center of cross #ar Cto hold silver !iresE$ )hese should #e
=ust slightly larger than diameter of silver !ires used$
?$ 4lue the t!o small !ooden pieces to opposite ends of !ooden cross #ar& so #ar fits snugly onto
the top of Mason =ar$ Cyou can turn =ar upside do!n on top of the cross #ar to glue the ends so
the fit !ill #e e'actE$ A slight t!ist tightens the cap on the =ar if you glue them on the narro!est
thread area$
8$ 3ut some thin !ooden strips to make frame to protect cell array$
6$ )ape the cells face do!n on the ply!ood #ase temporarily for positioning
A$ Wire all of the cells together and solder the t!isted ends together$
:$ )urn the assem#ly over gently Canother piece of ply!ood helps " make a ply!ood and solar cell
sand!ich$ )hen gently pry the cells
a!ay from the #oard they are taped to$
)hey !ill #e right"side"up no!$
+$ )est the solar panel to make sure all of
your soldered connections are good$
(9$4lue the protective frame onto the !ooden #ase$ @ou can also glue an optional piece of
le'iglas on top of the frames to completely seal in& and protect the panel$
(($2se the tu#e of silicone to glue the cell array to the #ase$ )ake care to keep everything together$
(<$Strip a#out (;< inch off of each of the long ca#le cut !ire ends$
(0$Attach alligator clips to the !ire ends and crimp !ith pliers& or solder to secure them$
(?$Install safety s!itch and;or a small light #ul#P to !ire #et!een alligator clips and the A3
adapter Cnot sho!n in photos& as I use a surge protector !ith a #uilt in s!itch and lightE$
(8$Assem#le generator as sho!n in the photo #elo!$ " @ou are done!
Makin% the colloidal silver solution
($ Fill mason =ar !ith distilled !ater (;<D from the top$
<$ Attach the < alligator clips to silver !ires ends sticking up from the cross #ar& and slip them
through the drilled holes in the =ar's !ooden cross #ar$
0$ lace the solar generator into the sunlight$ @ou are ready to #egin making colloidal silver
solution$
?$ Set a timer for three to four hours$ )urn on the #u##ler or start stirring !ith the chopstick$
8$ )o make sure that panel is !orking& you could test the 73 output !ith a voltage tester$
6$ @ou can test the concentration of the solution !ith a laser pointer& the silver particles !ill reflect
the coherent light in a cone shape after the first hour& this !ill increase until target concentration
is reached$
A$ )he solution should #e clear& or a very light yello! color !hen done$
:$ After process is completed store the eli'ir in a dark glass #ottle in a cool place$ )his should
keep for a couple of months& It is #est to make small Buantities as needed$ Fresh is #est$
+$ Wash mason =ar& and air pump tu#e after every use& then rinse !ith distilled !ater$ 3lean silver
!ires !ith scotch#rite pad to remove scale and silver crystals& then rinse$ 7ry then store all
components of the generator together in a dust"proof tupper or container$
Warnings " AMA 7isclaimer
)his device is meant to produce colloidal silver solution& !hich is a Dmineral supplementD$ We make no
claims a#out it as an anti#iotic or as a curative agent$
Some individuals report disruption of friendly flora and fauna after ingesting colloidal silver$
For those !ho are gastrically sensitive to colloidal silverN hand#ooks recommend gargling
colloidal the solution !ithout s!allo!ing& to protect friendly intestinal #acteria Cmany silver
ions are a#sor#ed through mucus mem#ranes of the mouth during garglingE$ )he eating of
organic yogurt is sometimes recommended to replace friendly intestinal #acteria$
1igh dosages of colloidal silver over an e'tended period of time are not recommended& as these
can cause the #uildup of silver residue in the =oints& gums and eye !hites$ 5ut !hen !e consider
the dreadful to'icity and side effects of pharmaceutical anti#iotics& colloiadial silver's side
effects are minor #y comparison$
-ive long and prosper!
