I’ve heard from dozens of women over the past 15 years who have told me they used colloidal silver during pregnancy – infrequently and in small amounts – with no adverse effects whatsoever, only benefits. And they’ve given birth to healthy, happy, beautiful bouncing babies.

Yet warnings against using colloidal silver during pregnancy persist. And to make matters worse, there are no significant clinical studies to demonstrate – one way or the other – whether colloidal silver is safe to take during pregnancy.

There is however, plenty of anecdotal evidence of women who have taken colloidal silver during pregnancy without side effects or harm to the developing baby.

1.I can’t find a single study demonstrating adverse effects from silver usage during pregnancy.

Going back 50 years, I can’t find a single study demonstrating adverse effects from silver usage during pregnancy.

The National Institutes of Health has a generally negative “backgrounder” report on the use of colloidal silver, called simply “Colloidal Silver Products.” But regarding pregnancy the backgrounder report only states:

“If you are pregnant or nursing a child, or if you are considering giving a child a dietary supplement, it is especially important to consult your health care provider.

Supplements can act like drugs in the body, and many have not been tested in pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children.”

I quite agree with that statement. In my opinion, a good naturopath should be individually consulted for advice when deciding whether or not to use ANY kind of nutritional supplement during pregnancy.

Kurt Grange, Ph.D., N.D., Nutritional Biophysiologist, noted author and lecturer states:

“Colloidal silver appears to be safe for children and pregnant and nursing women.

It is tasteless, odorless, contains no free radicals, is harmless to human enzymes and has no adverse reactions with medications.

Taken internally, it may improve digestion, help prevent colds, flu and all organism-caused diseases. It can be used as a douche, atomized, nebulized or inhaled.

Applied externally, it has been shown to help with things such as skin abrasions and burns (including sun burn).

It can also be dropped into the eyes and ears to help the body overcome infection.”

Other Sources

Checking other sources, I find that Wikipedia’s article on “Silver in Medicine” says nothing about the use of colloidal silver during pregnancy.

Neither does Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D., in his online article “Colloidal silver supplement health benefit information, side effects, risks and research”.


2. NTP Study: No Development Effects Or Systemic Toxicity Found in Study of Pregnant Rats

According to an EPA analysis of a National Toxicology Program study on pregnant rats that were tube-fed silver:

“In a developmental toxicity study of pregnant rats conducted in 2002 by the National Toxicology Program (NTP), silver acetate was administered by gavage [tube-feeding – ED] on days 6-19 of gestation.

No developmental effects were reported at doses up to 100 mg/kg…

…More importantly, the results from this study did not demonstrate an increased susceptibility of offspring, nor did it demonstrate systemic toxicity.”

– Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 110 / Wednesday, June 10, 2009 / Rules and Regulations

So, silver didn’t appear to harm the development of baby rats, even though it was being tube-fed directly into the mother rats during gestation.


3.Err On The Side of Caution

Personally, I always prefer to err on the side of caution and warn women not to take colloidal silver when pregnant, unless it is absolutely necessary –

– and then only under the supervision of their health care practitioner, as there are no studies to demonstrate what happens when the growing fetus is exposed to silver, good or bad.

But from what many female readers of my newly updated 547-page book The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual have told me over the past 16 years, it’s abundantly clear to me that a LOT of pregnant women take small amounts of colloidal silver during pregnancy, to good effect.

They claim it helps with morning sickness, urinary tract infections, vaginal candida yeast infections and also helps prevent colds, flu and other upper respiratory infections from taking hold.

So far, in all of these years, none of the women I’ve spoken to have said there was any apparent harm to the newborn afterwards.

Some of these women took small amounts daily (i.e., several eye-droppers full, several times a day) during the entire course of their pregnancy. Some took it only when needed to stop infection during the course of the pregnancy.

Here are some real-life examples from members of the Colloidal Silver Secrets Group on Facebook:


4.Real-Life Testimonials: What Women Who Have Used Colloidal Silver During Pregnancy Have to Say…

[Testimonials are subjective accounts of people’s personal experiences. They are not proof of safety or effectiveness. These real-life testimonials are included solely for informational purposes, and should not be interpreted as medical advice or guidance. Always check with a trusted medical practitioner before using colloidal silver.]

“My daughter started ingesting colloidal silver about a year before her pregnancy.

She took about an ounce a day. And she deliberately upped her dose when she found out she was pregnant to 1 cup, or more, per day, plus external usage as needed. I don’t know the ppm.

She had a home birth, along with a midwife. The home birth was very successful, no medical intervention.

Baby scored a 10 on the Apgar, was almost 8lbs, and very pink and healthy.

My daughter also used plenty of colloidal silver in the water of the birthing pool, and after the birth of the baby for the cord, for cleaning all towels and objects used in the birth, and later for the treatment of the baby’s umbilical area, and for washing the baby.

She continues to use colloidal silver for the baby, from umbilical care to skin rashes. It works like a charm.

She also used it for personal care and cleaning, and says it worked WONDERS for hemorrhoids, and for nipple care between nursings. She would even soak her breast pads in it.

The baby ingested it as well from day 1, and was used in ears, nose, eyes and when he started teething would freeze wash cloths dipped in cs for the baby to sooth his gums.

The only side effect was health, clear skin, no colds, no illness, fast healing.”

– J-A. W., Canada

Using a cup of colloidal silver per day on an ongoing basis is a pretty strong dose, even for an adult. Most colloidal silver products recommend no more than an ounce a day for adults.

What has to be remembered her is that the growing baby is receiving a good portion of this dosage. I must admit, from a personal standpoint, taking such a relatively large amount of colloidal silver on a daily basis while pregnant would really bother me.

Nevertheless, this is a bona-fide testimonial from a woman who did exactly that, and her baby apparently turned out great. Additionally, I’d never heard that colloidal silver is helpful with hemorrhoids. I haven’t had hemorrhoids for many years, but that’s certainly something I’ll have to try if I ever have them again!
