Welcome to episode 34; The Difference Between Colloidal Silver and Cleanse

A pretty well known herbalist instagram account recently shared a wonderful post titled “What They Don’t Tell You About Colloidal Silver”. Probably 100 people sent me DM’s either asking my thoughts on it or saying they don’t know what on earth to trust anymore. I completely understand this so last week I said this episode was going to be about The Essentials of Gut Health but because a lot of people are rightfully fired up about this I thought it was worth addressing. So stay tuned for for the Essentials of Gut Health episode . . . I will still record it but for a later date. 

This particular post made some really good points and I would like to start by explaining that Cleanse is not colloidal silver and the distinction between the two is actually a big reason why I started my business in the first place. 

This episode is going to teach you how Cleanse is different and will answer the most common questions that I get about Cleanse. Buckle up because you are going to learn a whole lot here.

The first thing you need to know is that colloidal silver is made up of tiny silver particles suspended in purified water. Cleanse is made up of tiny silver particles suspended in an alkaline pH balanced Structured water. The type of water the silver is suspended in might not seem significant but silver supplements are made up of 99.9% water and they type makes all the difference. I will explain more about this as we move through the episode but first, you need to know that most silver supplements on the market are colloidal silver and I definitely do not recommend taking them. The problem with colloidal silver is that silver is naturally very acidic so it is hard on the gut and this acidity can be disruptive to the good gut bacteria. Which is the whole point in taking silver, to kill the bad bacteria without harming the good. 

There is misinformation out there that says that colloidal silver is not able to distinguish between good and bad bacteria. What you need to know about this is that the cellular make up of bad bacteria is different than good bacteria. Bad bacteria has an extra electron and this is how the silver works. It steals that extra electron and this makes the bad bacteria die. Good bacteria doesn’t have an extra electron to steal so it is impossible for the silver to disrupt the good bacteria. It isn’t the silver that is harmful to the good bacteria, it is the base of the silver product. So again, colloidal silver is acidic and this is what makes it damaging to the good bacteria. And also, when the body is in an acidic state this is when bad bacteria grows. You do not want to take an acidic silver and all colloidal silver is acidic by nature. 

Which is why I created Cleanse. The alkaline base of Cleanse is very gentle and does not cause any damage to the good gut bacteria. The body functions best in an alkaline state, and many studies show that bad bacteria and yeast cannot flourish when the body is alkaline, as compared to being in an acidic state. 

Another concern with colloidal silver is that the silver molecules can fall out of suspension and settle to the bottom of the bottle. This is concerning because if the silver molecules fall out of suspension in the bottle, they could also fall out of suspension in the body. Meaning that it is absorbed into the body, it builds up and  never leaves. This can of course be very damaging to the body.  

Cleanse solved this problem by bonding silver molecules to structured water at a specific energetic frequency that will not separate or settle to the bottom of the bottle. ōNLē ORGANICS Cleanse pH balanced Structured silver will not metabolize or build up in the body. Cleanse flushes through your urine within 24 hours of consumption and no silver is ever left behind in the body. 

I created Cleanse with doctors, scientist and a manufacture because I was able to experience first hand the healing benefits of silver but I was concerned because of all of the information I just shared with you. I didn’t want my child to take it long term so I set out on a mission to create a silver that was safe for daily use. And the universe opened up doors that made the creation fall into place really quickly. I personally trust cleanse with my whole heart and I give it to my entire family every single day. There isn’t an ounce of fear in me because I know it is safe. I have diligently created a silver that is very different from colloidal silver. 

When mamas reach out to me saying I listened to your podcast about silver but I didn’t want to wait for it to arrive in the mail so I just went to the store and bought some I kind of die inside. Because all silver is not the same and it is so incredibly important that you know exactly what you are putting in your body. You need to know the difference and why it is important to source every single supplement from a trustworthy brand. 

We are working hard to get all ōNLē ORGANICS products into retail stores nationwide so that you don’t have to wait when you need it right then and there. But in the meantime, please please. Do not go and buy any random silver at a grocery store. 

This episode is absolutely not intended to bash what this lovely account shared. It is simply to answer all the questions that are coming in and to clearly explain the difference between Cleanse and colloidal silver. When you are not an expert in something specifically you might not even know that there are different kinds of silver. It is easy for all silver supplements to be thrown into one category and it just isn’t true that all silver supplements are the same or equal. That they are all bad and harmful. Just like you can’t throw all broccoli into one category. Organic broccoli is very different than conventional broccoli and the health benefits and risks in each are very different. The same is true for silver. I thank all of you who reached out. This is the most powerful thing you can do as the leader of your family’s wellness. Always ask questions, educate yourself and trust your intuition. 

The last thing I want to mention here is that my product Relieve is a topical silver and it consists of the same pH balanced Structured silver. This is important because your skin in your largest organ and you want to make sure that if you are using a topical silver, you are using one that is complimentary of the alkalinity of your body. Colloidal silver topicals are damaging in the same ways that colloidal silver liquids are. 

Thanks for listening. If you have any questions that I did not answer about Cleanse please don’t be shy in reaching out. Email me anytime at

I will be back next week.
