Colloidal silver products are made of tiny silver particles in a liquid form suspension. Many claims have been made, both pro and con, in response to the effects that colloidal silver may produce. Rarely, excessive doses of colloidal silver can cause possibly irreversible serious health problems, so always consult your health care professional before using a colloidal silver supplement or topical application of any kind.

Purchase a Neti pot, which is a small, handheld plastic or ceramic pot with a tapered spout that comes out from the base. The Neti pot was created centuries ago through the ancient Yogic tradition, and used to cleanse their sinuses for optimal breathing and meditation.

Identify a high quality, scientifically validated colloidal liquid suspension through the help of your family doctor. Laboratory analysis has shown that the amounts of silver in supplements vary greatly, which can pose risks to the consumer, so do adequate research on the products you choose to use.

Dilute 1/4 tsp. of colloidal silver liquid into 1/2 cup of lukewarm water. The colloidal silver product you purchase may have specific dilution instructions, so follow them exactly. When the mixture is blended thoroughly, bend over the sink and face your head to the right while placing the taped end of the Neti pot in the right nostril.

Pour the colloidal silver solution through the nasal cavity, in the right nostril and out through the left nostril into the sink. Flush the sinus for 15 seconds on one side, then switch over to the other side for a 15-second flush. Allow the water and colloidal mixture to flush completely through the nasal cavity.

Blow your nose when you have finished flushing with the Neti pot and colloidal liquid solution. This will get extra moisture out of the sinus, and create a clear breathing pathway into the lungs.


Claims made about the effectiveness of colloidal silver products for numerous diseases are unsupported scientifically, so be cautious when using colloidal silver in any form. Always use these supplements under the supervision of your family doctor.
