Here are a series of follow up emails between myself and Kaille in Virginia that may be of interest. (See the Ask Utopia Silver entitled MS.) Ben Gosh Ben,Thank you for such a newsy reply!  How wonderful!  How IS Utopia anyway?  My little piece of Heaven here in Virginia "ain't bad".  I am absolutely interested in the anecdotal stories about colloidal silver- that's all we have to go on right now. My husband was Dx in 2000 and we have tried ALMOST every known anecdotal therapy except over the last few months I've been doing a TON of research on Mycoplasma, Co-infections, Lymes, Stealth Pathogens and the like.  We are anxiously awaiting the "best" high tech lymes test results as… Read More →


Q:Dear Utopia Silver,I have dermatitis that may be coming from an infection.  How many days and how many times per day should I try using the silver on it? Suzanne in New Jersey A:Hi Suzanne, That is a difficult question to answer. Everybody and every situation is different. Dermatitis is the name used for any type of epidermal (skin) inflammation. This inflammation generally produces, scaling, flaking, thickening, weeping, crusting, color changes and often itching. There are a number of causes some of which may be relieved by colloidal silver. It can be caused by Candidiasis (yeast overgrowth), low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, food allergies, as well as genetically based weakness in the enzymes that convert essential fatty7… Read More →


Q:My husband just bought a gallon of your colloidal silver today and I was hoping you could give us information about the benefits and examples of how it has helped MS folks and the suggested dosages. Thank you,Kaille in Virginia A:Hi Kaille, There have been anecdotal stories of the symptoms of MS being alleviated by colloidal silver; indicating that it may sometimes be caused by a microorganism. That would be the only explanation I am aware of for colloidal silver being effective, since silver is proven to destroy one-celled organisms on contact. According to “Prescription For Nutritional Healing” by James F. Balch, MD, the underlying cause of MS is not known, but is widely believed to be an autoimmune disease… Read More →

AC or DC?

Q:  Hi there,Can you please let me know if the DC method is as good as the AC method? I have read on many sites information that seems to suggest the quality of the DC (rods in the glass jar) isn't as effective as the AC? Thanks for hopefully ending my confusion.Stephanie in New Zealand A:Hi Stephanie, That is not an especially easy question to answer. There are almost as many methods of production as there are companies. Both AC and DC production methods put silver into water and have positive effects. The real difference is not necessarily AC versus DC, nor does it have anything to do with PPMs, but it has more to do with the size of… Read More →


Q:I have been recently diagnosed with Rosacea. I have some redness as well as some slight acne. What would you recommend for treatment? Thank you, Andee in Washington A:Hi Andee, Rosacea is a very difficult condition to get rid of, but it can often be alleviated. It affects small groups of capillaries close to the surface of the skin on the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin which become dilated, resulting in blotchy red areas with small bumps. This inflammation of Rosacea can look a great deal like acne and tends to be more chronic, but whiteheads and blackheads are almost never present. Although the exact cause of Rosacea is not understood, there are a number of often aggravating factors, such… Read More →

Hidradenitis Supperativa

Q:I am disabled due to SEVERE Hidradenitis Supperativa.  I have read the testimonials from other sufferers.  I recently saw a man on TV who is turning blue due to taking what I thought they said was this colloidal silver.  Is that a possible side effect of this drug? Trena G.   A:Hi Trena, We have addressed this story several times the past few months, but since the media keeps harping on it, I’ll go to it again. First, colloidal silver is not a drug, it is a mineral (silver) supplement in water. Supplements are simply nutrients such as minerals, vitamins and herbs consumed to compensate for the lack of nutrients in the normal food diet. Today’s foods are generally severely… Read More →

Gum Disease

Q:I'd like to know if the silver will heal gum disease.  Also, I have conjunctivitis in both eyes and have used anti-biotic drops and cream, but it continues to return.  Is the silver safe to use in the eyes?  Will it heal this condition? Thank You,Christine A:Hi Christine, I have heard a number of reports of gum disease being "healed" by colloidal silver, including periodontal disease. I personally use a couple of tablespoons of colloidal silver in my water pik and it certainly seems to aid in reducing gum problems and tooth decay. Although I have had several tooth problems in recent years and except for one, they have been with old filings that got loose and had to be… Read More →

Clear Lungs

Q:I have high blood pressure and I see that CLEAR LUNGS has licorice in it. I am wondering if it is okay to use it[with high blood pressure]. I’ve also read that licorice may make you retain fluids? I am prone to Bronchitis at least once a year. I work in a cosmetics dept. and get a lot of different perfume smells and can feel it in my lungs also. I use extra Ester C when I get over dosed with the smell from body sprays and cologne, but my lungs need something to keep them healthy. Thanks, Nadine A: Hi Nadine, Licorice can increase blood pressure if used for more than 7 days in substantial strengths. Notice that the… Read More →

Yeast Infection Treatment

Q:Dear Utopia Silver,I believe I have a yeast infection and I don't know what to do. Cerria A: Hi Cerria, There are several things you may want to do and also a list of supplements you can use to fight such a problem. The first two will probably be the most helpful, but they are all important. 1)    Colloidal Silver- Use orally and also apply directly to the affected tissue. 2)    Acidophilus- fights candida infections 3)    Flaxseed oil- important in healing and aids in preventing the fungus from damaging affected cells. 4)    Vitamin B Complex- is essential to all bodily functions, resistance to infection, and the production of all enzymes. 5)    Calcium/magnesium- Candida infections often cause a deficiency of these… Read More →


Q:Dear Utopia Silver, Do you have any supplements that MAY help with diabetes and hypertension?Thank You,Nancy in Pennsylvania A:Hi Nancy, Generally, the most important supplement anyone can take is Plant Derived Minerals. Minerals are the building blocks of all the enzymes that enable and control all other body functions. Nothing in the body will work properly, nor can the body properly absorb other nutrients or vitamins without the proper minerals, both major and trace.
