i found out that my father had stores of colloidal silver at his house. my grandmother used to make her own and send bottles of it home with him just a year or so ago. anyway, i've been taking probiotics and olive leaf exract daily for a couple of weeks now, and once i learned of my father's silver, i tried that over the weekend. it's apparently 30 ppm. and i downed about 8 to 10 ounces of it on saturday over the course of about 6 hours. since i've been taking about three tablespoons a day. i'm not sure what the recommended dosage for my condition should be since i find info ranging all over the board online. upon waking up sunday, i felt incredibly drained. that progressed into feeling completely exhausted, nauseous, and horrible sunday evening, through monday, and the better part of tuesday. although, tuesday night, i started feeling like my old self again. i was quite energized and was actually worried as to whether or not i'd even be able to fall asleep because of it haha. my prostate was and still is bugging me slightly. as is the epididymus. but i don't feel sluggish and tired as i had. could the feeling of malaise i had over the weekend be attributed to the silver causing the herxheimer response? and i know i need to continue administering the silver, but does anyone have any recommendations as to what dosage i should be taking? i think its working so far. i just want to make sure i'm getting enough. but i'm also not wanting to overdo it. if that's even possible. thank you.
Dosage is always the issue with silver products. Since no real studies have been done one can only guess. I have a colloidal silver maker and when my kids were sick I would give them one ounce 3 to 4 times a day.
When you say your old self again I am assuming you mean your healthy self?
Some homemade products are not the strength that they are thought to be.
It does sound that you likely had a detox reaction. Now I just don't know what to advise but if you think the silver is making a difference I would say that 3 tablespoons a day is not enough. I think that having a steady supply in the blood stream is more important than one big wham. How about 1 ounce every four hours for a couple of days? It is most important not to allow any microbe reproduce during a "silver downtime"
At 30 ppm I do not think this will be an issue. I have used silver products much much stronger to no ill effect. If it were me I also continue for 3 or 4 days after all symptoms are past. If symptoms start to resume after that then you will have a better idea what to do ... hit it harder and for a longer period of time.

Thank you, Arrowwind. when i say my old self, i meant i felt better than i had the last few days after the intial silver intake and i did feel a bit of my healthy self back. a small relief of symptoms last night. glad to know that i can't really "overdose" on the stuff. i assume that i'd probabaly get water poisoning before anything. i'll use your suggestion of an ounce every few hours for starters, and we'll see how my symptoms do. i suppose i overcomplicate things sometimes rather than just feeling it out. so that's what i'll do. if symptoms start to flare back up, i'll step up my intake. if they subside, i'll keep doing what i'm doing 'til they're gone. and then continue for maybe a week or two after the absence of symptoms, just to be sure. thanks again. i'll keep you posted on my findings. at least i've caught a glimpse of hope at this point.
pxgq55a / I suffered most all of the symptoms you described for years and tried most every supplement down the pike for relief. Some of them helped but not dramatically. I finally stumbled on something that really helped by accident, as I began taking it for SAD symptoms, Vit D3. It worked great for my SAD symptoms and equally as well or even better for my prostatitis and related problems. Dramatic improvement is not an exaggeration. I take 5000/6000 IUs daily in 3 doses. As a bonus D3 is rather inexpensive. I purchase mine through Puritans Pride for pennies a tablet. Natural anti inflammatories (such as tumeric) taken with the D3 seem to make it even more effective. Good luck. I know how miserable the problems you describe can be...
I have the same thing you have and It's killing my life. I'm out of work and I just want to get this Prostatitus and epididymitis fixed. I am currently on Bactrim, IBProfin and I'm taking Ionic colloidal Silver water. What did you do to fix your problem? Please help me out, this thing is terrible, I've been to Doctors like crazy and all they do is give me antibiotics and they are not working. How did you fix it? I hope this Ionic colloidal Silver water will do the trick. It was so hard to find, but I got it 20ppm. I talked to many people and they said prostatitus is 15ppm -20ppm. So that is what I'm doing. Along with the prostate massage Aneros massager. I just started that and the inflamation seems to be going down a little. I hope you can help me out.

Reason: This is for Pxgq55a
I'm new to this board, Doc said I have Prostatitus and Epididymitis and have been reading everything. I've been on Silver 20ppm for about a week, but I've been on Batrim antibiotic too. Since being on the Ionic Colloidal Silver Water I don't feat the hot spot pain at the level of pain that it was, Which I was really excited about, So from reading this board I'm going to stop the bactrim which has done nothing for me. It sounds like it has been feeding it. I've been on the antibiotic for 6 weeks or more. I was on Cipro before that for 30 days and nothing. So the Silver like I said I think it is working I felt beter, but days I ate pasta or something I felt worse, which lead me to believe that the Antibiotic was feeding it too, and I was counter acting it with Silver water, so If I stop the Antibiotic I should be on the right track. I have been using this site also https://www.prostate-massage-and-health.com/index.html and it is helping with the inflamation. So would you agree that just Ionic Colloidal Silver Water and IB Profin 800mg (Anti-Inflammatory) would do it? How long do you think it will take roughly 2 weeks at 2-3 tablespoons a day 1 ounce every 4 hours or so like I just read. Thanks for all the good advice by the way.
I'm so confused now, after reading about natrasilver and stuff I don't know what to take to get rid of this Prostatitus and epididymitis I am just so confused can I have some advice please? Should I stay on the Bactrim and Continue with Ionic Silver Water 20ppm or should I try something else. I got to get rid of this thing quickly like a couple of weeks or sooner.
Ok it is 3am and I have been reading all night and I read that if you take a glass of water and set it overnight then spit in it and you have spider like clouds hanging from it then you have a fungus. So I did it and Yes I had spider like clouds hanging from it. So I have a fungus or yeast in my prostate. What will fix it? So I will definitley get off the Bactrim and stay on the Ionic Colloidal Silver 20ppm or do you sugest something stronger? I'll order it today.
I think your right about the yeast infection stuff because everything I eat like bread, pasta ect. it hurts worse. I knkow it is Sat. I'm trying to overnight some MMS to my house, but I need a ph# to call to get some. I am taking Ionic Colloidal Silver water 20 ppm but not sure if it is strong enough, but I was taking Bactrim DS along with it and Feeding it even more. So I'm going to stop the Bactrim. I feel like the silver is working at times, but now I believe that when I ate bad things lke cooking or bread or pasta I felt worse. I am going to the Doctors in about 8 days with no insurance, hopefully I can get on this MMS. I've been on and off work and currently back out of work because of this thing. I think I really need that MMS, but will it be strong enough? I've had this Prostatitus and Epididymitis for 4 months now. Pplease if you can respond back quickly I'm watching this thread all day today, maybe you can help me get something to my house this weekend or by Monday.
Since I have some Ionic Colloidal Silver I was wondering if I can take MMS when I get it with the silver or not. I am taking 20ppm 5ml a day 2ml in the morning 1ml in the afternoon and 2ml at night. I think I will take your advice and take 1 ml every four hours or so. I have some samples of Uroxatral something like flowmax too. They help relax the prostate. Is it ok to keep taking them or not? I am currently stopping the Bactrim DS as of today. I've been on it for 6 weeks or more
Hi pxgq55a, I am having had a similar experience to you and I just want to warn you about natural methods. After my local doctor telling me my pain in my abdomen was just constipation 'take a laxative' I ended up in the emergency room at my local hospital. There they did a CT Scan and gave me an inconclusive diagnoses of prostatitis and stool build up and told me to go to my gp for some virus medication. As with you they gave me doxycycline which made me worse, so they gave me a referral to a specialist. While waiting for this specialist appointment I got onto MMS Sea Minerals with Stinging Nettle, after a couple of days the pain in my abdomen was down to a dull stabbing sensation but my right testicle felt like someone had put it in a vice. After another 6 hour visit to the emergency room the results of my ultrasounds, blood & urine tests were saying that there is nothing wrong with me and that there are no STD's or viruses in my system. The hospital urologist ended up diagnosing by method of elimination a urinary tract infection that is persisting in my prostate and testicular area's. The hospital have put me on alprim which as they told me would bring the swelling down within 4 days and asked that when I see the specialist in a few days they send a sample of my semen (if I can produce it) for analysis to confirm their diagnosis.
I realise in your country that you may have a different health system to what we have here, but find a gp that is willing to help you, stop all current medications like they did for me an get CT Scans, Doppler Ultrasounds, maybe even an MRI as well as Blood, urine & semen test and seek a urologists advice to figure out what is causing your situation, when it comes to reproductive health you want to be sure as this stuff can make you sterile.
I went through basically the same as you Prostatitus and empyididimis, CT scan blood , urine test Cipro 500 mg, Bractrim DS and IBProffin 800mg. I do believe is a fungus/ Yeast Infection, because everything I eat like pasta , breads , grain, milk, all effect me. I don' t know anything else than a higher dose of Ionic Colloidal Silver Water. I'm taking 20ppm, but lke this forum says it is broken down into your 6 quarts of blood and by the time it gets to your lower area, it may be like 1ppm or something and they say to maintain 20ppm all the way through your system. What is working for you ?
