Colloidal Silver to Support Lung Health

Nebulizing Colloidal Silver

Ultrasonic Nebulizer Whenever I experience respiratory issues, the first thing I reach for is my nebulizer and colloidal silver. Nebulizing Colloidal Silver using this little handheld, lightweight device turns colloidal silver into a vapor that can safely be inhaled into the lungs. The results are absolutely amazing!

The nebulizer I use, which can be found at, holds approximately 5 dropperfuls of colloidal silver which is about one teaspoon. With the nebulizer on the high setting, this will produce about 5 minutes of vapor. Normally, one session will be all I need if I begin using it at the very first sign of respiratory issues. In more severe cases, I may nebulize 2-3 times spread throughout the day.

As an added benefit, nebulizing colloidal silver is the quickest way to get colloidal silver into the bloodstream, because it bypasses the digestive system and goes straight into the bloodstream via the lungs. While this can be a good thing, especially in an emergency situation, I recommend that people only use colloidal silver in a nebulizer as needed. There have been safety studies that prove nebulizing colloidal silver is safe for the short term (up to one month), but there are limited long term safety studies.

Some people ask if they can use an essential oil diffuser or an ultrasonic humidifier. I do not recommend either of these options. First of all, you don’t want to take the chance of inhaling essential oil residue from a diffuser directly into your lungs. And although the nebulizer works in the same way as an ultrasonic humidifier, the nebulizer is designed specifically for use with the lungs, and puts out a small enough volume of vapor to be safe for the lungs. Using a humidifier could deliver too much vapor to the lungs and be unsafe.

While traveling recently, my lungs started to feel “junky” from some kind of airborne pathogen and I was wishing so much that I had my nebulizer with me. I tried spraying colloidal silver from an atomizer spray bottle into my mouth while simultaneously inhaling the spray, but it didn’t really work. I would have given anything to have had my nebulizer at that moment. Nothing compares to the effectiveness of using a high quality nebulizer with high quality colloidal silver when the lungs need support.

If you’ve had success nebulizing colloidal silver, please share your stories with us as it will benefit others!

    I have used the colloidal silver in the past for a severe upper respiratory infection and it worked very well, by the next day my lungs were much better. I am right now beginning another lung issue and I am wheezing terribly. I believe this was caused from being with my younger daughter while she has a cold. I probably caught it! I will use a nebulizer and the silver once again to clear up this wheezing issue. It worked a year ago so it should work again. I also have COPD. But until more facts of any long term use are made clear, I will not use this long term.

      Hi Mary,
      Thanks for sharing your experience. I’ve used colloidal silver in my nebulizer for the past 13 years with great success. I only use it as needed, but when I do, it’s a lifesaver. For me, when my lungs give me issues, I tend to use approximately 2-3 teaspoons in the nebulizer per day. About one teaspoon will fill up the medicine cup in the nebulizer, so I fill it up 2-3 times per day. But I always encourage people to follow their intuition and listen to their body.
      Be well,

    Hi Jonathan,

    I have a MAC infection in my lungs, and the antibiotics didn’t work to eradicate the bacteria.
    It was suggested that I nebulize colloidal silver.
    You mention short term use (up to a month), but then you provide you have been using it with success as needed for many years.
    Is that the caveat? Use it occasionally only per year?
    I’m not seeking medical attention, merely a suggestion as to usage if someone were to have a bacterial lung infection. Even for instances of pneumonia, etc.

    I included my email address in order to post, so please feel free to email me privately.

    Thank you and best regards,

      Hi Patricia,
      Thanks for reaching out to us with your questions. I have personally been nebulizing colloidal silver for approximately 12-13 years. I’ve had great success each time I’ve nebulized, and because of this, I usually don’t need to do it for more than a few days or a week or so. I feel that nebulizing colloidal silver is very safe, however, there has been limited safety studies done to prove one way or the other. The only study I know of was done with monkeys. After exposing the monkeys to nebulized colloidal silver daily for one month, there were no negative side effects noticed. After three months of daily (continuous) exposure, some of the monkeys had slightly reduced lung function. So, this tells me that nebulizing colloidal silver is very safe, but should probably only be used as needed. It usually works so well that it would be rare to need to do it for more than a couple weeks. But if my lungs needed it, I do not hesitate. The monkey study is the main reason I recommend people use colloidal silver in the lungs only when needed.

      I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any more questions.

      Be well,

    Hello! I recently learned that I have some bacteria leftover in my lungs from two bouts of pneumonia over the last 6 years. :( I plan on buying the neb you recommend. What dosage and frequency would you recommend?

    • Jonathan Glauser July 22, 2017 at 1:44 pm #

      Hello Holly,
      The medicine cup in the nebulizer holds approximately one teaspoon (6-7 dropperfuls) of colloidal silver. This amount will run on high for about 5-6 minutes total. I can’t legally tell you what dosage to use, but I can tell you that personally, when my lungs feel “junky,” I usually use 2-3 medicine cups per day. Sometimes I might use more. I typically take several deep breathes from the nebulizer at a time and then walk away from it for a few minutes, and then I’ll use it for another few deep breathes. As always, follow your intuition.
      Be well,

    Today i have commenced colloidal silver via nebuliser to combat reoccuring lung pseudamonas. I am very confused about ppm. While waiting for my order to arrivee my hubby has purchased a bottle CS which has a ppm of 50!!!
    Should i continue with or cease. TIA

      Hello Hannah,
      Parts per million (ppm) refers to the concentration of silver in the liquid. The industry standard is 10ppm as this is a safe and effective concentration. The problem with too high ppm is that the particles of silver tend to agglomerate together and form larger particles. Particle size is the most important factor in the quality, efficacy and safety of colloidal silver, which is why we keep ours between 15-20ppm. When the concentration gets much higher than 20ppm, there is risk of agglomeration. I can’t vouch for another brand, but I can tell you that Mountain Well-Being colloidal silver is safe and effective when used in a nebulizer. If you bought a nebulizer from us, you should have received a free bottle of colloidal silver to use in the nebulizer. I would stick with that to be safe. But never discard questionable colloidal silver, as it can always be used topically.
      Be well,

    When you say about a teaspoon, what is the concentration you’re using personally? I’ve been giving my 6 year old 2 dropperfuls of 20 ppm 2 times a day for 2 days to help her body fight bronchitis. I’m curious the concentration you use as a simple form of comparison.
    Thank you!

      Hi Connie,
      A teaspoon of colloidal silver is the least amount I would ever use, and this would be as a preventative if I was feeling well. Typically, when I get the first indication of not feeling well such as a sore throat, I will take an ounce of colloidal silver and hold it under my tongue as long as possible (5 minutes or so). After that, I will follow up with about a tablespoon of colloidal silver each hour for the rest of the day, holding each dose under my tongue as long as I can. If my throat is sore, I will gargle before swallowing. The therapeutic dosage for a child is 1/4 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight, per dose. You might need to repeat the dosage throughout the day. Always remember to hold under tongue before swallowing.

      For bronchitis, I use colloidal silver internally but more importantly I also use it directly in my lungs via a nebulizer. We sell a really high quality nebulizer here:
      Be well,
