How to Make a Colloidal Silver Generator

Create colloidal silver with a generator for medical purposes.

Since the early 1990s, people have been taking colloidal silver as an alternative to traditional medication. Colloidal silver is believed to contain cure-all qualities that work when medication is not on hand to treat a variety of medical conditions such as pneumonia and urinary tract infections. Creating colloidal silver is a process you can complete inexpensively with a few common building components.

Bend the end of the 0.999-pure silver wire around the positive and negative ends of the 9-volt battery. Use the needle-nose pliers to bend the end around completely, allowing the wires to stick straight up when the battery is placed on a flat surface. The wires should not touch or overlap in any area.

Place a glass of steamed, vaporized water on a flat surface. Place craft sticks on top of the glass, running side to side. The craft sticks should run parallel to each other, positioned near the rear of the glass rim so the front is uncovered.

Place the 9-volt battery on top of the craft sticks. Allow the 0.999-pure silver wires to hang down directly into the water. As the silver is submerged into the water, it will begin to disburse small silver particles. Allow the silver wires to sit in the water for 50 minutes to an hour. Then remove the battery and wires.

Stir the water rapidly with a spoon, and filter the water through a coffee filter.
