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 5-6 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 I was wondering if there is a change of amount of colloidal silver if I’m using for a 6 year old child

      • Jonathan Glauser March 30, 2018 at 4:57 pm #

        Hi Michelle,

        Generally, you want to use about half the adult dosage for a child. Please refer to an article I wrote about this topic here:

          Reduction of viral load in AIDS patients with intravenous mild silver protein: 3 case reports

          Victor Whizar-Lugo

           I read this medical report and they took the viral load from over 1.5 mill to undetectable in around 4 weeks using mild colliodal silver . Orally at first the IV.

          I have HIV. Been on cs for around 6 weeks. Just ordered mild cs . Waiting for its arrival.

          Haven’t yet been on medication yet. My viral load back around 2 weeks ago was 20000.
          Will only be wanting just a test to see where im at late next week. Avoiding medication!

          Your thoughts??

          Many thanks

            Hello Victor,

            IV colloidal silver has proven to be very helpful for certain situations. My thoughts on what you wrote are that an electrically generated colloidal silver would work even better than mild silver protein. The protein used in mild silver protein products can actually coat the particles of silver, reducing the surface area of the silver, which is not good. Also, mild silver protein tends to have larger particles of silver. But remember, the smaller the particle size, the better.

        Hi how did it work for your child . ? My 9 year old has asthama and mucus.. I wanna try this

  2. Patricia June 18, 2017 at 5:55 pm #

    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,

    • Jonathan Glauser June 21, 2017 at 5:14 pm #

      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,

      • Garry December 30, 2019 at 10:22 pm #

        I have mac also. I use to use it but I have not been able to find a good nebulizer. I love the one you sell but it works somtimes and then it doesn’t. I think silver really helps . Like you said the drugs don’t work after awhile and you will try anything to feel better. I went on a food diet. I cut out bread ,dairy and sugar. I lost 30 lbs and was off the anibiotics for 4 months. Unfortunitly I am back on them again. Maybe it was the silver that was helping. I will try again. gm

        • Jonathan Glauser January 2, 2020 at 3:06 pm #

          Hi Garry,

          If you ever have any issues with your nebulizer, please feel free to call us and we can troubleshoot over the phone and help you get it working properly. Remember to fill out and send in the warranty card that came with your nebulizer because it is covered by a three year manufacturers warranty.

    • Mellany March 12, 2018 at 7:44 am #

      I too was diagnosed with MAC in my lungs and took 3 different kinds of antibiotics for 18 months (very expensive, even with insurance) The end result was “no better and no worse”, but for 18 months I was subjected to this regimen while all the while feeling terrible and run down. I just bought a nebulizer after I had already purchased CS at 250 ppm. I did some research on CS and learned that if the solution is clear, then there is not much silver in it. So now I am learning that this higher dosage can cause agglomeration. I am using this dosage for short bursts maybe 3 or 4 times a day. I don’t want to do any damage to my lungs, but I would love to have my lung function back! Should I stop doing the 250 ppm and change over to the CS that came with the unit?

      • Jonathan Glauser March 13, 2018 at 4:42 pm #

        Hello Mellany,
        I personally would not use 250ppm silver in the lungs, or anywhere internally for that matter. It’s false to say that clear CS doesn’t have much silver in it. Clear CS can have plenty of silver in it, it just means that the silver is extremely tiny, which is what you want. It’s true that higher ppm CS can have agglomeration problems, which is why the industry standard is 10ppm. I would bet that the 250ppm product you have is actually a mild silver protein (MSP) which is not desirable. You can test this by shaking the bottle. If you see any foam persist at the top of the liquid, then you know for sure it contains an added protein. I recommend to NOT put this into your lungs. If you bought the nebulizer from Mountain Well-Being, then yes, definitely use the bottle of CS that came with your nebulizer. It is safe to use in the lungs and I’ve been doing so for over 10 years with nothing but positive results.
        Be well,

        • Lynn July 12, 2018 at 7:36 pm #

          Hi Jonathan! I’ve been looking for colloidal silver experts and I was happy to find you. Also, as far as I can tell, you’ve been very honest about the products. As an example, you are about the only person I can tell that produces an ionic silver that also recognizes the residual effect of particle colloidal silver. So, you’re the only person I can find to bridge the two opinions.

          I would like to try your product, but I’m presently in possession of a colloidal particulate silver, so I will wait til I run out — not mentioning names, but it’s the one that gets the best particulate rating on….20 ppm. Anyway, most of the information out there has to do with the safety of ingestion. I’m looking for information on the safety of applying it to the skin and inhalation. Do you think that inhaling the particulate product is comparably safe as your ionic product? Also, I noticed that you do not use your own ionic silver product as a preservative for your copper cream. Are you concerned about the safety of applying silver to the skin? I know one well-respected company that uses particulate colloidal silver as their skincare preservative. (They do not disclose it, but I know it’s a particulate product and I’m guessing it’s 10 ppm.)

          • Jonathan Glauser July 28, 2018 at 2:37 pm #

            Hi Lynn,

            You are correct, our colloidal silver contains primarily silver ions (80-90%) but it also has a portion of silver particles (10-20%). Silver ions are the active part of silver that kill microbes and heal the skin. Silver particles are also good ONLY because they give off silver ions. If silver particles did not give off silver ions, they would be worthless for healing the body. Only the silver ions do the job, but again silver particles release silver ions so they are good too.

            If you’re using the colloidal silver that’s rated the best on, then you must be using Mesosilver because the owner of that company also owns that website (bet you didn’t know that!), so of course he’s going to rate his way better than all the rest. Some of the info on that site is good, but some is downright disinformation to try to push his product. So take the info with a grain of salt.

            As far as the safety of applying colloidal silver to the skin, most colloidal silver should be safe, but the ionic silver will work more quickly and give better results. I’ve been using colloidal silver topically for almost 20 years and have had nothing but great results. We don’t use colloidal silver as a preservative for our lotion and creme because when you mix oils and water, and you want to have at least a two year shelf life, a stronger preservative is needed. I am certainly not concerned about the safety of CS on the skin!

            Regarding the inhalation of colloidal silver, I’ve only used Mountain Well-Being brand in my nebulizer and it works GREAT! I’ve not used other brands for inhalation so I can’t comment on them. But just like with the skin, silver ions will work faster than silver particles. There have not been many safety studies on the inhalation of CS, so I recommend using it in a nebulizer only when needed. There’s a company that recommends using a nebulizer for daily CS use, but I don’t agree because the safety of this has not been proven. But I’ve been nebulizing CS occasionally (only as needed) for at least 12+ years and love the results I get.

            Be well,

    • Angel October 30, 2018 at 6:39 am #

      Patricia….Hi. My Mom has MAC and now Blastomycosis…..and other lund issues and has had for years. I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know if you decided to nebulize the cs and how it worked for you. Thanks, Angel

  3. Holly July 21, 2017 at 4:07 pm #

    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,

  4. Hannah Frazer September 27, 2017 at 2:23 am #

    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

    • Jonathan Glauser October 2, 2017 at 1:49 pm #

      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,

      • sarah February 25, 2018 at 12:18 am #

        we were told to get colloidal silver in a glass bottle with a glass dropper, non clear bottle also, it says 500 ppm, so we cant use this to nebulize?

        • Jonathan Glauser February 26, 2018 at 10:28 am #

          Hello Sarah,

          I’ve only nebulized Mountain Well-Being colloidal silver, so I can’t comment about another brand. Most colloidal silver with very high ppm also have very large particles of silver, compared to typical colloidal silver in the 5-20 ppm range. The industry standard is 10ppm because this is a safe and effective concentration that tends to minimize particle size. The smaller the particles the better.

          Be well,

  5. Connie September 28, 2017 at 3:22 pm #

    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!

    • Jonathan Glauser October 2, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

      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:

    I have bronchiectasis with pseudomonas colonization in my lungs. I nebulized CS for a period of 6-9 months to test the effectiveness against the nasty bacteria. During that period, I had no exacerbations, no pneumonia episodes, I felt really good and my peak flow went from low 325s to over 420. I started reading articles warning not to use CS for long periods in nebulizer, so I stopped and just continued oral maintenance dose. Within 6 months, I have had my first exacerbation in over 18 months. I am not saying it is because I stopped the Silver, but something happened. Wish I could be positive. I am going to do a Sputum test to see if there is any improvement.

    • Jonathan Glauser January 3, 2018 at 6:44 pm #

      Hello Rose,
      Sounds like the CS was helping you when you were nebulizing it. I wish there were more safety studies done on nebulizing CS. My advice is to always follow your intuition. If you feel like nebulizing CS will help you, consider doing it again. And then any time you are feeling better, take that opportunity to give yourself and the nebulizer a rest.
      Be well,

      I have bronchiectasis also (since birth) and for the last 7 Years have been infected with psedenomous Argentine. I am going to try colloid silver as the antibiotics just aren’t working and I feel awful.

      Can you tell me, how much did you take orally and how often and same with nebuliser? How much and how often?

      Thank you so much

  7. Lexi January 6, 2018 at 4:28 pm #

    Hi Jonathan,
    I am not writing with a testimonial on how nebulizing colloidal silver has worked, but as a mom that is so excited at the prospect.
    My 2 year old son spent 9 days in the hospital with the flu and pneumonia this past February. He had to have surgery on his lung. It was bad. He recovered, but now is susceptible to respiratory infections, and even got pneumonia again last month. I am always watching him, and fighting his respiratory problems.
    Having always used natural remedies, and even colloidal silver in the past, I am so excited to learn about nebulizing colloidal silver. I knew there was a natural way to keep him healthy. I feed him healthfully, and give him vitamins, and steam him with eucalyptus when needed. I’ve done so much research, and just happened on this information today. I’m also going to give him goldenseal and echinacea, for both respiratory health and immunity.
    In summary, thank you for writing about nebulizing colloidal silver.
    My best,

      Hi Lexi. I am having the same exact issues with my 20-month old son… normal cold for others turns right into chest infections and bronchitis for him, and this last time it turned into pneumonia and he needed antibiotics. I’m a mom into holistic health as well and I was wondering how using the CS in the Nebulizer for your child worked? I’m looking for a natural remedy to help him that won’t destroy his gut health like antibiotics. I’m so scared for his next cold/episode. Please let me know if this remedy helped you!

  8. Danielle Weinberg February 4, 2018 at 5:11 pm #

    Hello there,

    Is there any alternative way to use the colloidal silver for respiratory/lung health. I can’t afford the nebulizer at this time but, I also really need to detox my lungs.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    • Jonathan Glauser February 5, 2018 at 3:57 pm #

      Hello Danielle,

      Using a nebulizer is definitely best, but if that’s not an option for you right now, then you can try using an atomizer/mister to spray a fine mist of colloidal silver into your mouth while simultaneously inhaling deeply. I’ve tried this when traveling without my nebulizer, but it wasn’t nearly as effective. I’ve heard that a perfume atomizer works okay in a pinch. But definitely consider getting a nebulizer when you are able!

      Thanks for your question. If you do an internet search for pulmonary fibrosis + colloidal silver, you will find some interesting info. There are many sites to look at, but this one seems especially important:

      We cannot make any claims about our products, so I cannot legally say that colloidal silver will treat anything. But do your research and come to your own conclusion. If I were in your shoes, I’d definitely try nebulizing colloidal silver, in addition to using as many other natural remedies as possible.

    • Jonathan Glauser March 13, 2018 at 4:50 pm #

      Hello Jodi,
      Mountain Well-Being colloidal silver can be beneficial for the lungs when used in a nebulizer. A nebulizer will do a much better job than a diffuser. You’ll want to be cautious though since you’re dealing with a 17 month old. Let us know if you have any more questions.

        Johnathan, I just recently started looking into Silver Sol, at the present time I’m using Silver Shield 24PPM topically on a wound from a blister on my lower calf muscle it started out about the size of a silver dollar and after 10 days it’s a little smaller than a dime, any way I am curious about Silver Sol as I have flem constantly in my lungs and it’s difficult to eliminate I also have shortness of breath from 47 years of smoking 2 packs a day, I quit smoking in 2010 cold turkey as that was the best way to stop, what I’m wondering is would this nebulizer treatment help with the flem and the shortness of breath, currently I use Primatene tablets generally two tablets in the morning and sometimes two just before bed, I stopped using Albuterol as I didn’t get the results I was looking for. Sincerely, Louie Van Almen.

        • Jonathan Glauser July 24, 2018 at 3:55 pm #

          Hello Louie,

          We are not allowed to make any claims about any of our products, unfortunately. What I can tell you is that nebulizing colloidal silver has almost always been very helpful for me. It does seem to reduce my flem, but if I have flem it’s usually caused by a cold/flu bug since I don’t smoke cigarettes.

          One thought is that even if nebulizing CS doesn’t fully relieve your shortness of breath, having a nebulizer will certainly come in handy the next time you get an infection that goes into your lungs. Your lungs are probably more susceptible to infections from all those years of smoking.

          Be well,

    Hi Jonathan,
    I’m wondering if you could tell me about infants using silver. My grandson is not yet 6 months old and has had bronchitis three times already. His lungs do not seem to clear completely before getting sick again.

    I’d appreciate any information or where to go to get more information.
    Thank you

    • Jonathan Glauser April 5, 2018 at 4:23 pm #

      Hi Kim,

      I can’t give you medical advice or make any claims about our products. But if I were in your shoes, I would experiment with using a nebulizer and colloidal silver. The nebulizer we sell comes with two face masks, one for an adult and one for a child. If the child size mask doesn’t fit, you could try to get your grandson to breath from the mouthpiece instead. Do research about nebulizing colloidal silver for infants and see what you find. Also, work to boost his immune system. Personally, I like colostrum as a great supplement for doing that.

      Be well,

I hope CS 20 PPM will help me more ., Good thing I can sleep better now cough is not waking me anymore …. But still there is slight wheezing

  12. Frances April 17, 2018 at 12:38 pm #


    I have sinus problems and I just bought a 10ppm 2fl. Oz. Of Sovereign silver. I also have a nebulizer. Do You know how many teaspoons of this should I use? Also, do u know about using this product for gum infections? Thank you.

    • Jonathan Glauser April 25, 2018 at 9:43 pm #

      Hello Frances,

      Do you have a Mabis nebulizer that you purchased from Mountain Well-Being? When I nebulize colloidal silver using my Mabis nebulizer, I generally use about a teaspoon at a time. Make sure to follow directions and put water in the lower chamber. When my lungs feel bad, I tend to nebulize at least 2-3 times per day. Always follow your intuition!

      In addition to helping the lungs, colloidal silver is also great for gum health. Swish it around in your mouth as needed. The longer you can hold it in the mouth the better, and then swallow. Repeat as often as necessary.

      By the way, although Sovereign Silver is a decent product, Mountain Well-Being colloidal silver contains 1.5x more silver and costs almost half as much.

      Be well,

      • Paul May 31, 2018 at 6:20 pm #

        Why do you have to put water in the lower chamber in the Mabis Nebulizer….is this a must each time you nebulize CS?


        • Jonathan Glauser June 11, 2018 at 12:40 pm #

          Hi again Paul,

          Yes, it is essential that you put water in the lower chamber of the Mabis nebulizer. The reason for this is the water transfers the high frequency vibration from the plate at the bottom of the reservoir up to the bottom of the cone on the plastic medicine cup. This vibration is what makes the liquid in the medicine cup (CS in this example) turn into a vapor that can be inhaled into your lungs. The nebulizer will not work without the water in the lower chamber.

    Hi, just read post about adding water to bottom chamber. Do you combine the silver with water or can you just put silver in chamber. And if water is added does it have to be distilled? Thank you.

    Hi Jonathan,

    I want to start Nebulizing CS….I had a lung infection for weeks now. I want to try your product soon. I’m currently using Sovereign silver brand orally. How much should I use for nebulizing and how long? Please reply soon using my email below


    • Jonathan Glauser June 11, 2018 at 12:35 pm #

      Hi Paul,

      When I nebulize CS, I generally put about a teaspoon (or 6-7 dropperfuls) of CS into the plastic medicine cup. This will last approximately 5-6 minutes of constant nebulizing when the nebulizer is on the high setting. Sometimes I will do a full 5-6 minutes at once, but more often I’ll nebulize for a minute or two, and then come back to it a little while later. If my lungs are feeling bad, I tend to go through at least 2 or three teaspoons in the nebulizer per day. I also ingest colloidal silver orally at the same time. Always remember to hold CS under your tongue before swallowing.

      Be well,

    I started nebulizing colloidal silver two times a day seven days ago. Probably about a teaspoon each time. I have a respiratory infection, but did not know for sure if it was walking pneumonia or acute bronchitis. I had already taken a round of antibiotics and steroids. Nothing was working, though CBD oil helped relieve some of the symptoms of dizziness and fatigue. I felt better right away, but on the 4th day felt worse again. I think it’s call hersheimer effect. Today I’m feeling myself again and I’m certain the colloidal silver is helping the infection and congestion in my left lung. I don’t know how many more days I’ll nebulize, but will most likely stop at the two week mark. I also use young living essential oils and they were not having the full effect I sought. So, colloidal silver is my best friend right now.

      Hi Debra,

      Thanks for sharing your experience. Glad to hear that nebulizing colloidal silver is helping you. As always, follow your intuition for guidance regarding best usage/dosage.

      Be well,

    Hi Jonathan,

    I have bronchiectasis and have been nebulizing Sillvercillin Spray from Designs for Heath. It is 15ppm and I’m just wondering how it compares to your product. It does not say it’s Colodial Silver, it says purified silver 75mcg and other ingredient is purified water. My doctor says this is safer than Colodial Silver. What is the difference?
    What is your opinion on this product and do you think it is safe to use in a nebulizer?


    • Jonathan Glauser July 30, 2018 at 5:11 pm #

      Hi Patty,

      I’ve not tried that particular brand, but it is definitely “colloidal silver” because it contains silver suspended in water. The first thing I noticed when I looked at their website is the product comes in plastic bottles. All the best manufacturers put their product in glass bottles, because it will have a much longer shelf life in glass. Also, glass doesn’t have the toxicity issues that plastic has. So right off the bat, I do not judge the product as being very high quality, since they don’t know better than to not use plastic.

      I can tell you that Mountain Well-Being colloidal silver is definitely 100% safe to use in a nebulizer. I’ve been nebulizing Mountain Well-Being CS for over 12 years and have had only great results. I only use it when needed, but the benefits are tremendous!

      Be well,

        Hi Jonathan
        Is 45ppm premium quality collodial silver good for the nebulizer?
        I have bought it but want to check it is of high quality for my son who is recovering from lung cancer.
        It is in a brown glass bottle and states it is 45ppm 80-85% ionic 15-20% particulate

          Hi Sandra,

          I can’t accurately tell you about the colloidal silver you have without seeing it and testing it for myself. It’s good that it comes in an amber glass bottle, that’s what we use here also. And 80-85% ions to 15-20% particles is a good ratio, very similar to Mountain Well-Being Colloidal silver. But we intentionally keep the concentration of silver for ingestion at 15-20ppm and no higher. The reason for this is because around 24ppm is when saturation occurs, meaning any additional silver added to the solution will produce diminishing returns due to an increase of particle size from agglomeration. Please refer to an article I wrote that goes into this in more detail, which you can find here:

    My almost 3 year old supposedly has asthma. We are off and on the flovent (puffer steroids), and singulair. He also gets frequent albuterol treatments. I hate the potential side effects of these meds. Our functional medicine doctor suggested using Colloidal Silver and Quinton Water mixed and nebulized. However, she is not license to treat kids so she can’t give us a dosage for his age/weight per her practices policy. What would be the dosage for him? Have you heard about mixing the silver with Quinton Water. We want to try natural remedies but need to be certain of the dosage. I hope you can help.

    • Jonathan Glauser August 15, 2018 at 4:06 pm #

      Hi Jaime,

      Like the woman who recommended colloidal silver to you, we are not licensed health care professionals and are prohibited from giving specific dosage instructions, nor can we make any claims about our products. The Mabis nebulizer we sell will hold about one teaspoon of colloidal silver. I suggest filling it up with a teaspoon and then using according to your intuition and the results you’re getting. Please watch the video I made about how to use the Mabis nebulizer with colloidal silver, which you can find on this page:

      I do NOT recommend mixing colloidal silver with Quinton water because that contains salt and you should never mix salt with colloidal silver. If it were me, I would take the Quinton water internally and use colloidal silver in the nebulizer.

      Be well,

    Hi, I have a nebulizer I got from my dr for my asthma. It uses albuteral ampules. Could I just add the CS to the cup without any added liquid or should I use a bit of filtered water? Thank you.

    • Jonathan Glauser September 12, 2018 at 1:36 pm #

      Hi Jodi,

      You should be able to use any nebulizer with colloidal silver. The one we sell here has a little plastic medicine cup where you fill the colloidal silver. You don’t mix water with the colloidal silver but the unit does require water in the reservoir below the medicine cup. I’m not sure what kind of nebulizer you have but it should work in a similar way.

      So remember, do not mix water with colloidal silver…use it straight. And if possible, use a separate (clean/new) medicine cup so as to not mix the colloidal silver with any residue from your albuteral.

      Be well,

    Hi Jonathan,
    Thank you for doing what you do! I have been looking for exactly an article like this for five years. You answered my question about diffuser verses nebulizer and where to buy a nebulizer. I went to several pharmacists and they would not even suggest where I could get one other than through a prescription and that is why I thought to use a diffuser. I was in a house with toxic mold for five weeks. So I think this should help.

    My husband buys your product. He suffers from COPD. Would nebulizing with silver benefit him and what is the formula for the nebulizer?

    • Jonathan Glauser February 21, 2019 at 3:37 pm #

      Hi Tammy,

      It depends on the cause of your husbands COPD. Nebulizing colloidal silver is great for infections in the lungs caused by microbes. There is no “formula” for doing this. You simply need a high quality nebulizer along with high quality colloidal silver. You can learn more information and see a video on our website here:

    Can I use nano-silver in a CPAP?

    • Jonathan Glauser July 24, 2019 at 4:40 pm #

      Hi Deb,

      We recommend using a nebulizer for getting colloidal silver into the lungs, and we recommend doing so only when needed, not on a continuous basis. While you might be able to experiment using your CPAP machine to deliver CS to your lungs, it will work better via a nebulizer. You can view the nebulizer we offer here:

    Hi Johnathan, I have Bronchiectasis and Non-tuberculous Bacteria (NTM). I have refused the 3year treatment of three different medications that sounded dreadful and which have no promise of working. I have been using a salt pipe and this week I have started to use a saline solution in a nebuliser, prescribed by my specialist. As I have had this condition for several years would intermittent use of colloidal silver, like you have suggested, tackle such an established disease. The nebuliser my husband purchased is a Omron compressor NE-C900. Wish I had found this site first and wonder if I should also purchase the one you recommend for using CS as the one I have suggests 2 ml even thought the cup is capable of holding a lot more. However, I am so pleased that I can use colloidal silver to nebulise. Thank you.

    • Jonathan Glauser November 5, 2019 at 2:52 pm #

      Hi Carol,

      Please know that we are not allowed to make any claims or give any medical advise. What I can tell you is that you can use any nebulizer with our colloidal silver. Just make sure the medicine cup is new or well cleaned. You would not want any salt residue in the nebulizer when using it for colloidal silver. We wish you the best of health.

      Be well,

    I was diagnosed with stage 4 copd and they say slight emphysema. I have nodules in my lungs which OT doc said is not unusual for ohio valley areas. I have worked machine shop jobs,pharmaceutical and finally a major automotive company transmission plant. The last job was what put me down. They should have be held liable but weren’t. That has wore me down mentally. I was diagnosed in 2010. I luckily stumbled upon the Silver. It has made a huge difference. I was getting worse and was afraid I was ready for the oxygen tank. I ordered a hand held nebulizer,I have the other type as well but I use the hand held. The first time I used it i have mucus coming up from feel in my lungs. I use the 5ml drops 2x a day. I read about hydrogen peroxide and dmso. I have tried the peroxide it didn’t seem to work well for me. I haven’t used it regularly. Maybe it takes time. The dmso is supposed to be really good. I am concerned about using the Silver everyday. It’s only been a week. It seemed like the Silver got the mucus from deep in my lungs. Have you read about the peroxide and dmso? If so what is your thoughts about it. Thank you

    • Jonathan Glauser January 3, 2020 at 2:26 pm #

      Hi Victoria,

      I’m glad to hear that nebulizing colloidal silver has been helping you. From the research that’s available, I’m confident that nebulizing colloidal silver is safe to do for up to a month at a time. There aren’t many safety studies about nebulizing colloidal silver for long periods of time, so my recommendation is to take breaks when you can. For most conditions, just a few days of nebulizing colloidal silver is all a person needs. But if you need to do it long term, be sure to give your lungs a rest from time to time.

      Regarding hydrogen peroxide, I have read success stories of people who used intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy for asthma, but apparently it’s not a quick fix. I believe the duration of the protocol is around a few months, and only a handful of doctors are trained to administer it. Search for “intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy” if you’re interested.

      I hope this helps.

      Be well,

    Good afternoon. I have used silver in the past but am now in Ecuador. The only silver I’ve fond here is a product called Amazona herbals. It is difficult to even read the info about it on the label nor have I found it’s website. It has a salty feeling when (the one time) I put it in my eyes. I’ve never experienced that before. I only use it on my skin now.
    I see a product on line called Colloidal Silver Super Concentrate 1100 ppm. This is stronger than I’ve used before. I’m wondering if I can dilute this and use in my Omron micro air nebulizer? If so how would I do this?
    Also with this new Coronavirus would it be a good idea to use a stronger strength?

    • Jonathan Glauser January 28, 2020 at 2:05 pm #

      Hello Molly,

      Finding good quality colloids in Latin America can be challenging. When I was in Mexico and someone showed me their bottle of locally bought colloidal gold, I noticed that it was clear in color. But properly made colloidal gold should be red in color.

      If you suspect there is salt in the colloidal silver you bought, I would not ingest it. You can continue to use it topically, but I don’t recommend using it internally.

      The colloidal silver you see advertised as having 1100ppm is most likely a mild silver protein. These products are not as good for a number of reasons. You can tell if colloidal silver has added proteins by shaking the bottle vigorously…if foam persists for more than a few seconds, it contains an added protein.

      The industry standard for colloidal silver is 10ppm because this is a safe and effective concentration when colloidal silver is made properly and contains extremely small particles. When the concentration of colloidal silver gets too high (above mid 20’s ppm), then tiny particles tend to agglomerate together forming larger particles, which is not desirable. Therefore it’s better to use more of a lower ppm silver than less of a higher ppm silver. Nothing is more important than particle size, and high ppm silver tends to have larger a particle size.

      Be well,

    I’m so excited to try nebulizing silver as we have used for everything else in our home the last few years with amazing success (cuts, scrapes, UTIs, infections, ENT issues- it’s amazing stuff . Now we (family of 4) are struggling with extreme mold sensitivities that cause lung flare ups and lots of other fun symptoms whenever we are exposed. I know you can’t give medical advice, but do you have any thoughts on nebulizing for mold exposure? Also what does salt do to colloidal silver? Thank you so much for your site and hard work, it’s a blessing to have people like you sharing the good news of natural health in the world we live in

    • Jonathan Glauser February 10, 2020 at 12:41 pm #

      Hi Monica,

      Thanks for your comments and questions. Nebulizing colloidal silver can be a godsend for the lungs. But you need to address the root cause of your mold problem: too much humidity. I suggest keeping a couple inexpensive digital humidity gauges around your home so you always know the exact level. You want to ALWAYS keep the humidity level below 60% because at or above this level will cause mold to grow, no matter what. Using a combination of a dehumidifier and/or air conditioner usually does the trick. Within weeks of constantly keeping the humidity level low, the mold in your house will go dormant and your symptoms should improve.

      Regarding salt and colloidal silver, you never want to mix the two because it will produce silver chloride. There is never a need to add salt.

      Be well,
