Silver Sol, Colloidal Silver, The Facts

One of the most useful health aids we have, in Canada and US, is NSP Silver Solution.


In the US there are several products,  with  various names: Silver Shield with AqualSol,  Silver Shield Gel 


In Canada there are twoSilver Guard (which is really FAR more than a mouthwash, a ‘Health’ Canada enforced label) and Silver Shield Gel.

There are slight differences in ppm of Silver and FDA/HC labelling, but all basically offer the same benefits and applications.

Since 2008, I have been asked many times to explain the difference between these Silver Solutions and the well known Colloidal Silver, so this article is well over-due. Since we have had access to these stellar health aids,  we have had many success stories  and we believe every household should always have a stock of these. We never leave our home for any trips without at least a tube of Silver Gel.

Nature’s Sunshine Silver is made by Aqua Sol Technology using a patented process with strict quality control to verify potency and purity. The result is fine, bioavailable, nano-particle sized colloids.


What’s the advantage of Silver Shield?

This Silver is processed by the kidneys, does not affect populations of beneficial bacteria in the colon like pharmaceutical antibiotics, and cannot accumulate in the body or skin to create Argyria or argyrosis or “blue skin”, a permanent skin discoloration caused by excess silver accumulation; often a problem with homemade colloids or inexpensive deals found online. In other words, NSP Silver is safe.

How Does Silver Solution Work?

As mentioned above, Silver Shield/Silver Guard works by 3 separate mechanisms to stop the growth and spread of harmful pathogens. Peer studies have shown Aquasol silver to be effective on over 600 bacteria, viruses, yeast and fungus, including Malaria, MRSA, Avian flu, limb regrowth, Swine flu, burns, Lyme & MS


  1. Silver Oxide

The silver oxide coating of the nano-particle kills bacteria by pulling away one of the electrons on the bacteria cell membrane, which contributes to the rupture of the membrane and ultimate death of the cell.  This is also how the older generation Liquid Silver worked, but in the case of Liquid Silver, once the silver oxide had pulled an electron away from the bacteria cell, it stopped functioning.  The new Silver Shield has a double + charge on the silver molecule (explanation in FAQs below).  This double charge, coupled with the fact that the silver in Silver Shield exists as a core of pure silver metal with an oxide coating on the outside, allows for this reaction to regenerate itself, so that one silver particle kills many bacteria, instead of just one bacteria.


  1. Resonance

The silver particles in Silver Shield resonate at a frequency of 890 – 910 THz.  This is the exact same frequency used in blue germicidal lights in laboratories.  The silver sol nano-particles are small enough to get in close proximity to a virus or bacteria.  The “good vibrations” of their resonant frequency will rupture the bacterial or viral cells without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.


  1. Magnetic Viral DNA Disruption

Silver Shield works by its electromagnetic charge. The silver nano-particle is magnetically attracted to the virus and overpowers its DNA, rendering the virus impotent and unable to replicate.  Viral DNA has a slight magnetic charge while healthy DNA does not, so healthy cells remain unaffected by the Silver Shield.

The Silver Shield is a liquid product that can be applied via mister, nasal sprayer, atomizer, inhaler, dropper, teaspoon (swallowing for internal applications) or topically.  It is safe for all applications and is safe for children.

Silver Shield Gel has all of the benefits of the liquid except that it provides 24 ppm of silver instead of 18 ppm. It is for topical use.


There has been a great deal of interest in this product since its launch, and many success stories – see Silver Archives.  Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: What are the ingredients of Silver Shield?

Silver Shield is manufactured solely from high purity water and high purity silver metal, with no other ingredients involved.


Q: How is the gel manufactured?  What are the extra ingredients in it?

Silver Shield Gel is manufactured by taking the Silver Shield solution and adding a gelling agent and triethanolamine. The gelling agent is declared on the label by its INCI name, acrylates\C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer (we are required by law to declare cosmetic ingredients by their INCI nomenclature). The triethanolamine acts as a surfactant (emulsifying agent) to keep the gel stable under all conditions.


Q: How is the silver oxide coating created?

The patented manufacturing process causes very small silver particles to be formed – about 90% between 0.05 microns and 0.15 microns – and the high energy environment in which they are formed causes these particles to acquire a surface layer of a multi-valent silver oxide (empirical formula AgO, molecular formula Ag4O4).  The product may also contain a small amount of ionic silver (as silver nitrate) and a few particles larger than 0.15 microns.  (A micron is one-millionth of a meter).


Q: How can the silver have a 2+ charge?  I thought silver had only a 1+ charge?

Purely ionic silver compounds such as silver nitrate or silver chloride occur with silver having a 1+ charge.  As mentioned in explaining how the silver oxide coating is created, the molecular formula for the oxide is Ag4O4, translating to an empirical formula of AgO.  Oxygen occurs with a 2- charge, so in order to achieve electrical balance, the silver in this case must have a 2+ charge.


Q: Is Silver Shield a colloidal silver or not?

The best scientific description of this complex mixture is a hydrosol.  Most of it could accurately be described as a colloid, and up to two or three percent of the silver may exist in ionic form.


Q: The Silver Shield label has a warning about thyroid medications and antibiotics.  Can someone take Silver Shield if they are already taking these medications?

When we first developed the label for the Canadian market we consulted several different sources of information for contraindications, warnings and known risks, keeping in mind that Health Canada is overly cautious in requiring this kind of information on our product labels.

We found reliable scientific databases that advised there was a theoretical concern that colloidal silver products could interfere with the absorption of both thyroid and antibiotic medications.

The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database’s monograph for silver issues cautions against concomitant use with levothyroxine (synthroid) and certain antibiotics.  These cautions are all based on theoretical consideration of the pharmacology of colloidal silver.  In each case, the caution is that taking silver with these medications at the same time could reduce the absorption of the medication, making it less effective. The US parent does not advertise these cautions on their label and the US and Canadian products are exactly the same. We know from Dr. Pederson’s presentation that the silver actually makes antibiotics more effective. We still felt it was best to put this warning on the label to begin with, since Health Canada would most likely require us to add it before a product licence was granted (our Product Licence Application is under review as of this writing). The best advice at this time is that in order to avoid any possible interactions, patients should take the Silver Shield and their thyroid or antibiotic medications two hours apart.


Q: Is Silver Shield safe for pregnant or nursing mothers?  There is a warning on the label against this.

Information presented during the product launch would seem to indicate that the Silver Shield would be acceptable for use in these cases.  However, medical databases we have consulted advise caution, saying there is inadequate testing of silver compounds in these cases.  That is also the standard position of Health Canada.  It is somewhat paradoxical, because no pregnant or nursing mother will ever volunteer herself as a test subject to find out if some ingredient or product is harmful to herself or her child. So it is unlikely that ‘adequate testing’ will ever happen. Almost ALL pharmaceuticals state that they are not tested on pregnant or lactating women or children or the elderly, yet they are prescribed frequently to these groups.

Our best advise is to consult your health care professional in these cases.


Q: If I take too much silver, will I turn blue?

No.  The famous “blue man” who made the news in early 2008 was making his own silver solution at home and drinking it every day for many years.  There are many internet sites that advertise “Make your own silver solution” as well.  We would strongly advise our customers not to do that, and to leave the manufacture of these products to the professionals.  In the case of home-made products, there would be a lack of quality control to say the least!


Q: Is the silver toxic?

No.  Upon ingestion, silver compounds are known to clear out of the body by 90 to 99% by the second day after ingestion.  Silver Sol TM passes through the body via the urine with no toxic metabolites. Research suggests you would have to take Silver Shield every day for more than 200 years before it built up to exceed .05mg/kg.


Q: Is the silver organic?

No. By definition, metallic elements and their oxides are not organic.

Successes with Silver Gel

A 72 yr. old man, had a bad accident when he was a teenager, that crushed his leg from the knee down. In the last few years his foot was chronically infected, he took many rounds of antibiotics. The infection and redness had spread from foot up to his knees. Finally the medical suggestion was amputation just above the knee. He was bound and determined to save his leg, so he purchased both Silver Sol Gel to apply topically – 2-4 times a day and Silver Sol liquid, which he took 1 tsp./5ml.-2-3 times internally.

2 weeks after this treatment, the infection & redness was almost gone and he has not had any recurring infection. He cannot believe the difference and he is also feeling so much better!

Shingles and Herpes

Shingles is a latent form of the Herpes or Varicella Zoster Virus, reactivated from previous chicken pox, or contracted when one does not have the natural immunity developed from exposure. The virus lies dormant in the nerve cells adjacent to your spinal cord and can reactivate under various conditions.  Known triggers for reactivation are: STRESS, which can be from emotional causes or from a physical cause such as trauma or injury. Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, or other illness can all weaken the immune system.

Shingles appear as a painful rash and/or itching blisters, running in a band or belt, usually confined to one side of the body or face. This can be accompanied by fever, aches, and general malaise. Although shingles is not contagious itself, the rash gives off the varicella zoster virus, which could cause someone who comes into contact with it to develop chicken pox.

Allopathic medical treatment prescribes medications to treat  the symptoms of shingles. These may be antivirals or corticosteroids in severe cases. The drugs can be expensive,  may or may not work depending on how soon they are started, do not help ward off future attacks, and carry the risk of side effects or potential drug interactions associated with every prescription.

One natural regime, which is outlined below, has produced excellent results with acute shingles attacks and rashes of many types, including those caused by severe drug reactions, such as man-made antibiotics.

IF-C is a Chinese herbal formula developed by Dr. Sabuti Dharmananda for relieving and clearing all conditions of excess heat, including rashes, pain, head-aches and sinus infections. In Chinese terminology, these conditions are classed as “heat-rising”. For maintenance after the acute episode, some people will follow-up with HRP-C (CA) VS-C (US), which is explained below under Herpes. This formula is available both in capsules and liquid.

Dosage at which people have had success: every 3 – 4 hours (4 –6 times) /day

IF-C       4 capsules
InFlammation, InFection Chinese formula that clears and relieves excess heat

Stress Formula  (CA) / NutriCalm  (US)   2 Tablets
Contains balanced B complex, C, plus calming herbs Hops, Valerian and Passion Flower to relax the nervous system

Burdock (US only)   4 capsules  OR  Oregon Grape Extract (CA & US)   2 ml.
Both are gentle blood and liver cleansers with specific soothing and healing properties for the skin.

Take full dose until pain and inflammation is noticeably less. Results will depend on the person, the length and severity and condition, but relief may be noticed within the first two days. Three days after symptoms decrease, you can reduce frequency to every 3 times/day, then several days later decrease dosage by half, but still 3 times per day. Consult with a qualified natural health consultant to aid you, or contact us for personal assistance in placing an order at discounted prices. See below for external aids.



Besides shingles, there are many other types of herpes virus, which affect a very large percentage of the population, up to 60%. Herpes simplex 1, cold sores, can occur on any part of your body including nose, elbows, fingers, stomach, or anus. Genital herpes is called Herpes simplex 2, but it is really just a different form of the same disease, and one can cause the other. Some people have sub-clinical, subtle outbreaks and can shed the virus even when they are asymptomatic, which is one reason this disease has become so prevalent.

Herpes can be effectively treated by a combination of diet, stress reduction and herbal medicine or by drug therapy. Although allopathic medicine says there is no cure, it is possible to go years between outbreaks with management using natural therapeutics.

For all types of herpes, including shingles, consider a program of HRP-C (CA) VS-C (US) for three months, at 6 – 9 per day. Dosage is dependant upon your size, the severity of condition, personal immune status, and lifestyle. HRP-C is a Chinese formulation developed by a Chinese medical doctor, to address Herpes virus, AIDS, and all other viral stressors, which include the common cold and flu. It helps increase overall immunity, and detoxify the liver and eliminate heavy metals. It is also very effective for Candida and other yeast/ parasitic infections.

For regular or periodic herpes, the above dosage of HRP-C can gradually be lowered after 3 months, until a maintenance dose keeps herpes under control. This dosage will be different for everyone, dependent on their size, other aspects of lifestyle and overall health. During times of stress, which can exacerbate an outbreak, the dosage should be increased. If tingling is felt, which can signal an outbreak, taking full dosage will ward off an outbreak or minimize it.

L-Lysine (US) , an essential amino acid, can also be taken at a dosage of three 500mg. capsules per day during an outbreak, and one per day as maintenance. Use some thought when supplementing one particular amino acid for long term, as all amino acids work in synergy. If however, you have some other symptoms of l-lysine deficiency, such as a feeling of helplessness, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, anemia or depression, maintenance with l-lysine may help alleviate these symptoms. L-lysine can be found in fish, chicken, eggs, garbanzo beans and comfrey.

For External Relief: HRP-C /VS-C in liquid glycerine form can be applied to sores. Tei Fu Oil  or  Tei Fu Massage Lotion, a blend of essential oils, is helpful for pain and itch relief and to help sores heal more quickly.

Silver Shield Gel also destroys viruses, decreases inflammation and speeds healing. This would be highly recommended for use in any opening, such as eyes, ears, vaginal, cervical, etc.

Q & A: Chronic Throat Irritation


Just wondered what your answer would be to a chronic throat irritation? I found a product not available anywhere in Canada by a Swedish company that seems to have phenomenal success rates called kan jang . I could order it from the U.S…..
Thank you. JV


First, I would want to understand what is causing the chronic irritation. A food, beverage, chemical or other toxin, GERD (acid reflux), low grade or sub-clinical strep infection, or mucous drainage from sinus are some possibilities. As explained in my book, The Paw Paw Program, inflammation is the root cause of all disease.

So to FIX the challenge, this cause would need to be addressed. Some natural products that I know would provide relief, soothing and healing to the throat irritation are:

  • Tei Fu Oil  will provide instant relief – this is my take everywhere first aid kit in a bottle!
  • Slippery Elm – open 2 capsules and add 4 Tbsp. hot water – and sip. If it thickens too much, add more water
  • Aloe Vera Juice – slowly sip several Tablespoons per day
  • Silver Gel – excellent for irritation and infection – if you can apply it to back of throat without gagging, do that, otherwise just put at least a pea size in mouth and it will slowly coat the throat area

The last two will help the body heal the irritated throat tissues – use these for daily for at least a month. If it recurs, then you really have to look for the cause again.

As for the Swedish product, sorry I cannot comment. I have used mostly Nature’s Sunshine Products since 1990,  as their quality is unsurpassed and the results are excellent. If you decide to order it, do your research, as it sounds like a Chinese product, and their quality control if often non-existent.

Please contact our office  if you would like assistance in ordering any of the above suggestions.The above links are Canadian, so prices for US products will be less, especially if you contact our office for a member account.


Q & A: Rosacea


Is there anything you are aware of that causes rosacea? How would you treat rosacea? J.L. 



Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which principally affects the face. Rosacea causes facial redness and produces small, red, pus-filled pustules (bumps). The condition worsens with time if left untreated. It can be mistaken for acne or psoriasis or some other skin allergy. 

Causes can be several, including  infection by a parasite that is a type of mite known as demodex, that infest the hair follicles and sebaceous ducts. (Dr Mark Dahl, Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School).

Another link is to Helicobacter  pylori bacteria that causes stomach ulcers. Herbal ULC-R or HP Fighter is very successful at eliminating this challenge, when taken for at least 3 bottles.

One of my Nature’s Sunshine Consultants had rosacea over ten years ago and in her research she found that the major cause of rosacea is inefficient protein digestion. This would result in undigested protein fermenting, creating toxins and causing inflammation.

The supplements that she took to cure her rosacea were:


Protein Digest Aid , Vit E & Selenium,and Essential Fatty Acids  EFA’s) such as Super Oil,  containing Flax,  Evening Primrose Oil, Salmon oil, lecithin (only available in  Canada) or Super Omega 3 , available in most countries.

Black walnut liquid tincture, especially effective for parasitic infections including mites, ringworm, lyme, and staph infections.


Apply the following 1-3 times per day:

Silver Gel or Aloe Vera Gel with Essential Oils (EOs): 2 drops Lavender, 1 drop Tea Tree Oil and 1 drop Eucalyptus.  Other Essential oil used successfully – any combination of which can be added are:  1 drop Oil of Oregano – very good anti-parasitic;  1 drop Helichrysum – prevents scarring; 1 drops Chamomile – anti-inflammatory and healing; and/or  2 drops Rose Geranium – hormonal balancing. These drops of EOs would be for one application, roughly 1/2 – 1 tsp., so you could make a larger batch for convenience. Nature’s Sunshine’s EOs are all  therapeutic quality and have so many uses in the Home Beauty and First Aid  kit. Contact us for full list and prices.

At the very least, just use Silver Gel, as this will helps with both inflammation and healing.

Others have used Black walnut liquid tincture externally, especially effective for mites, ringworm, lyme bites, staph and other parasitic infections.

You should see results within the month. Please contact our office to order any of the above, so you can be guaranteed quality products at the best price, with our professional support.

Q & A: Actinic Keratosis and Paw Paw


I have actinic keratosis all over my body , would paw paw be beneficial to me and clear up my skin? Please put me on your list for free monthly Natural Health Newsletter.  Cathy


Yes Cathy, as actinic keratosis is abnormal cell growth, Paw Paw, Asimina triloba,  would help. For best results, one could take small internal dosages (2- 8 per day) as well as applying Paw Paw directly to the skin surfaces affected.

One way to do this is to open capsules of Paw Paw and mix them with Silver Shield Gel, which also will help to  stop inflammation and promote healing of the lesions. If there are particular spots which can be covered with a bandage, this will hold the herbs onto the affected area longer, but if it is a larger area, just try to apply at least 3 times per day.

Another option is to mix the Paw Paw with Black Ointment, which is available via the US Nature’s Sunshine Products. Please contact our office, TakeTheNaturalPath@gmail.com or 250-748-6802,  to help you place this order and get a free member account which will offer you a discount, ensure you get the correct products, and involve our support. I can also send you a more detailed Fact sheet on any of these products.

In addition, excess sun exposure is to be avoided, and general dietary and lifestyle recommendations as fully explained in my book, The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally, would enhance bringing the body into balance for healing.  

The book includes the complete Paw Paw Program for health, plus the sugar and cancer connection .

Hope this helps; look forward to helping you on your journey to optimum health.


Canker Sores and ulcers in mouth and throat

Canker sores, (Aphthous stomatitis) are very common and can appear on the tongue, inside of cheeks, lips, or gums. They usually begin as a little crater surrounded by slightly raised concentric rings of yellow then red. Canker sores range in size from miniscule to over two centimetres. Their healing period can take from two days to two weeks. Typical symptoms are pain, burning when eating certain foods and bad breath.

Ulcers can also develop in the esophagus, resulting in irritation or pain upon swallowing certain foods, acid and bad breath.

The cause of canker sores may be different for each individual, but generally there will be a challenge with  weakened immune function as well as nutritional deficiencies of iron, B12, lysine, or folic acid. Poor oral hygiene, food allergies and sensitives (especially to chocolate, gluten, oranges, lemons, tomatoes, pineapple – all fruits which are  acidic in the mouth, even though they are alkalinizing for the pH),  systemic Candida, stress and fatigue may be underlying causes. It is important to determine what is causing cankers for you.

What can be done to prevent and heal canker sores?

Topically: apply directly to cankers, or other sores

Tea Tree Oil – apply 1 drop directly on sore 2-3 times per day

Silver Gel – apply a dab directly on sore 2-3 times per day


Drink at least 3 tsp. of Chlorophyll to help alkalinize the system. Chlorophyll can also be gargled straight, then   swallowed.

Liquid Silver Guard can also be swished and held in mouth, if possible, for 6 minutes, then swallowed.            (Do not be put off by the label of mouthwash; this is necessary for approval by a government branch which protects pharmaceuticals in the guise of protecting the public’s health.)

It is useful to support the entire immune system when working with canker sores. Sometimes it is necessary to implement the Candida diet also. Because of this, we have noted good results when we include Bifidophilus Flora Force with the program.

HRP-C Liquid or HRP-C Capsules are beneficial for many people, especially if there is viral or bacterial involvement. This combination of herbs stimulates the immune response to fight micro-organisms . It is available in liquid or capsule form.

Drinking Aloe Vera Juice is one of the best for sores or ulcers that are not reachable, i.e. further back in mouth or in esophagus.

Overall optimization of health can be achieved by following  the Four Pillars of Health as explained in Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

Follow a program for at least one month. If improvement is not noticed within this time, contact Benoit & Associates Health for specifics to help you.

Medical Scene

Industry-sponsored trials give favourable results for drugs, by burying negative trials. This is a well-documented problem, and it has been researched extensively without anybody stepping in to take effective action.

“Publication bias” — the process whereby negative results go unpublished — is endemic throughout the whole of medicine and academia; regulators have failed to do anything about it, despite decades of data showing the size of the problem.

Because researchers are free to bury any result they please, patients are exposed to harm on a staggering scale throughout the whole of medicine, from research to practice. Doctors can have no idea about the true effects of the treatments they give. Does this drug really work best, or have I simply been deprived of half the data? Nobody can tell. Is this expensive drug worth the money, or have the data simply been massaged? No one can tell. Will this drug kill patients? Is there any evidence that it’s dangerous? No one can tell.

This is a bizarre situation to arise in medicine, a discipline where everything is supposed to be based on evidence and where everyday practice is bound up in medico-legal anxiety. In one of the most regulated corners of human conduct, we’ve taken our eyes off the ball and allowed the evidence driving practice to be polluted and distorted. It seems unimaginable.

Excerpted from “Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients” by Ben Goldacre.












Have you tried Lorene’s Balinese massage yet?


How you handle your money, believe it or not, can be used as a spiritual practice.  You can amplify your relationship with the flow of abundance as you participate with more awareness in earning, spending and giving.

Be part of the flow.  You activate the law of receiving by giving.  Appreciate value and put your resources toward that which is in greatest harmony with the life you want to create.  Be grateful for what you have!  When you pay your bills be sure to remember and appreciate having had that phone work all month, having the water flow freely.

Notice when you feel restricted around money and take a deep breath, and offer gratitude instead.  This is a powerful re-patterning that will invite more prosperity into your life.

Stay in the Flow!

From Mary Manin Morrissey

Silver Gel used for Dental Surgery

I received a question about the study in which Silver Gel was used to prevent infection in dental implants and have found some sites that show this research, as well as patents pending.

I found reference to the study that we learned about at a Conference:  http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/benediting-410295-silver-sol-technology-fda-gel-fina-final-entertainment-ppt-powerpoint/

Cibron Dental Consultants Report: “It is our … Silver Sol gel has been shown to disinfect topically and keep hands completely sanitized …

It is an extensive 90 slide Power Point; the relevant slides are #9-11, so I have taken this information from there:

Two Dentists, Dr. Willoughby and Dr. Clease performed 300 dental surgeries using Silver Gel and there were ZERO infections.

This is unprecedented rate of non-infection in oral surgery. Other uses in dentistry in addition to preventing infection, are to lessen after-effects of dental procedures, such as inflammation, pain, and to speed healing. This is what many people have found effective.

Liquid Silver Guard – 1 teaspoon (5 ml) 2-3 times per day (we suggest holding in the mouth 6 minutes if possible, then swallowing so the benefits are both topical and internal)

Silver Gel – apply top9ically to affected area, or rub on gums 12-3 times per day.

Other references you may want to check are:



We have also used Silver Gel as a tooth gel with excellent results in both improved gum health and reduced dental cavities. As Silver Gel is a strong natural anti-biotic, and as germs are the primary cause of decay and gum disease, this is no surprise. 

Please contact our office if you wish to order either of these.

Or to order online from the same supplier that we use, go to Nature’s Sunshine, and ask to get wholesale pricing, using our sponsor name: Benoit and account # 309344.
