According to Dr. James Balch, M.D., author of the bestselling book Prescriptions for Nutritional Healing, you can indeed use colloidal silver directly in your eyes for Pink Eye and other eye infections (i.e., conjunctivitis).

In his newsletter, he recommended a few drops in each eye, several times a day, of 5 ppm to 10 ppm colloidal silver.

When our son Ron was sent home from school with Pink Eye, the school nurse called to tell us it was a particularly virulent strain and was going around the school. She asked us to keep him home for several days.

We started putting a few drops of colloidal silver into each eye periodically throughout the afternoon, and by the next day it was completely cleared up and he was back to school. The school nurse called asking us what in the world we had done, because she had never seen a case that bad clear up that quickly.

We have also used it for healing strep throat (just gargle with colloidal silver four or five times a day), stomach infections including food poisoning (I drank several ounces of 10 ppm every hour for four hours, and it stopped the vomiting and nausea in its tracks) and even colds, flus and many other types of infections.

We even give it to our pets in their water bowls, whenever they get sick. Our cat absolutely loves it, and in fact, prefers drinking colloidal silver to his regular water.

An interesting animal lover's web site called Bender Place also recommends giving cats and other pets colloidal silver, rather than risking potentially dangerous vaccinations which often harm pets.

As for the problem of different commercial brands of colloidal silver having different strengths and using different types of measurements, this is one good reason why you should always make your own colloidal silver. That way, you always know you are getting pure colloidal silver with no additives, and you personally control the strength.

A very high-quality form of colloidal silver called "micro-particle colloidal silver" can be prepared quickly and easily with a safe, simple device called a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
