Hepatitis C is a serious liver disease caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). An estimated 5 million Americans have been infected with Hepatitis C. Common signs and symptoms of Hepatitis C include:

  • Fatigue
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes)
  • Dark urine
  • Abdominal pain and/or nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Low grade fever

However, 80% of people with Hep C have no symptoms at all , or they may feel just generally unwell or not quite up to par. Despite the fairly mild onset of Hepatitis C, it is a serious disease that, left untreated, results in severe liver damage.

There are 6 major strains, or genotypes , of Hepatitis C. Genotype 1 is the most common type in the United States. Types 1, 2 and 3 are found worldwide; type 4 is found throughout Africa, 5 is common in South Africa, and 6 is common in Asia.  

Hepatitis C is diagnosed with blood tests that look for signs of liver inflammation, the presence of antibodies to the Hepatitis C virus, and the genetic material (RNA) of the virus that causes Hepatitis. Anyone who tests positive for the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is presumed to be contagious.

Viral Load Count is one of the measurements of how much of the virus is in the system. Different laboratories use procedures that produce differing results when measuring viral load count. Therefore, the testing of viral load count for all the tests should be performed by the same laboratory and at a time when the subject is free of flu and common cold viruses, which can influence counts.


Many people have tried Colloidal Silver (true silver colloids, not silver proteins) for all genotypes of Hepatitis C and have reported the results shared below. Colloidal silver is a natural supplement made from tiny (nano) particles of pure silver suspended in de-ionized water. Please note that Colloidal Silver has not been tested or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, that this information is not intended to diagnose, prevent, treat or cure any disease, and that the reports below are from actual users of true colloidal silver and reflect only the experience and opinions of these users.


“I call Mesosilver my ‘MIRACLE MEDICINE’. I found out last May that I had Hepatitis C of the worst kind (Genotype 1B). I’d had elevated liver enzymes for years, but no one had ever tested for Hepatitis. I was pretty devastated when I got the diagnosis. I had seen someone in the advanced states of the disease and it was a pretty frightening future to look forward to

. . . if there even was a future. In some ways, it was more like a death sentence. My viral load was at two million. When I started taking 4 TBS daily of Mesosilver a little over a month ago, I had been feeling really bad. I had no energy and could hardly get out of bed. I didn’t really expect results right away because I had been told it usually takes about 90 days, but as soon as I started taking the Mesosilver, I started feeling better. Suddenly I could get up and do things again. Then I went to the doctor. They took some tests and could not believe the results. They called me from the doctor’s office, and they were so excited because my viral load was down from two million to 1500, and my liver enzymes were normal. . . not just low, but completely normal, which was the most shocking part of the results. My doctor kept saying, “This is unbelievable!” When I told him what I was taking, he had never heard of colloidal silver, but he said, “Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it!” My tests results are great and I’m feeling much better. I even look so much better. My skin looks better, my hair looks better . . . even my fingernails look good! Thank you for giving me my life back! Please let other people know about this, so they can get well too.”

“My son had miraculous results with the Colloidal Silver helping his Hepatitis C. He’s a completely new man – “back from the dead” as he describes it. “
-- Evelyn Piatt, age 73 - Pensacola, FL and Oakland, NJ

“I just placed my third order of Mesosilver today and I would like to share with you some very good news. In three months of taking Mesosilver, my hepatitis C viral load went from 2,490,000 to 269,000. Also, in the first month and a half, I only took about 1/2 to one ounce a day. I then upped the dose to about one ounce or a little more. Now I take two to three ounces daily. Although I never felt especially ill, I feel more energy now. I also take a lot of liver supportive herbs and vitamins daily,such as Liv52 and Maximum Milk Thistle. I will continue this regimen for the rest of my life. Thank you for making this wonderful product available to me.

  • Lydia C  

“ I did my bloodtest last week and just heard from the doctor. She said that my viral load count is 4M. The last time I took this test was in August and it was 10M+ it went down by 6 Million!!! The only thing is that while my viral load count went down drastically, my alt & ast levels went up. Anyway, that really made my day today so I am just telling everyone: "Don't give up!" You take 1 Tablespoon 4X a day 2 hours after a meal or 20 minutes before you eat. After 4 months my viral load count went down from 10 million to 4million. That's pretty good.”

-- Maddy

I was diagnosed in 1997 and have been going through natural treatments since I found out I had Hep C. I started Mesosilver and took it for 90 days. After 90 days my viral load dropped from 5.7 mil to 1.3 mil the lowest I have ever been since diagnosed. Milk Thistle is good it rejuvenates livers cells, I also take high doses of Vit C and Alpha Lipocic Acid. I have been on the silver 6 months.” -- Sullimon

“I’ve had Hepatitis C for 19 years. Over the years, I’ve tried so many different things, that when I started taking the colloidal silver in April, I wasn’t very optimistic, but I immediately started to notice a difference. By about the third dose, I started to notice a tingling in my legs where I had had nerve damage resulting in sensory paralysis. Then I began to have a lot more energy and my endurance was much improved. Before the silver, I’d maybe have one decent day in a week, if that. Everything was a huge effort, it was a job just getting out of bed and I just didn’t want to do anything. Some days, I couldn’t even get out of bed. Now I have a lot more energy and haven’t had a “washed out” day for quite awhile. I’m much more clear headed, and that sort of foggy-headed, fatigued, not-hitting-on all-cylinders-feeling is gone. I have back my mental clarity, my energy and my ambition again. I feel like I’ve gotten my life back. I’ve been suffering from this disease for years, and the colloidal silver really helps. Even my liver enzyme tests, which were 3x normal are now normal. I can’t believe this stuff is out there to help everyone who is suffering, and yet they sort of sweep it under the rug. It’s easily available, easy to take, easy to get and has no side effects. I guess because the pharmaceutical companies can’t make a killing on it, they don’t want it known, but I really want to get the word out that colloidal silver can really help people with Hepatitis C.”
-- Raymond P. - Shalimar, FL

My friend took Mesosilver after trying chemo and her counts dropped drastically . She also noticed that her blood sugar numbers became more in line than they had been in a long time.

“I contracted Hepatitis C many years ago and it has been in remission since. Then about 6 weeks ago, a reoccurrence hit me like a Mack truck. All the life went out of me; I was so sick that when I went to the doctor, they found me hunched over in the waiting room because I could not stay awake. My daughter was so scared about my condition that she went on the Internet. She found information about Mesosilver and started reading the testimonials. When she showed them to me, I just said, “Get some!” Within 20 minutes after taking my first tablespoon of Mesosilver, I started to feel better. I upped my dosage to the 4 tablespoons recommended and kept feeling better and better. Then, on about day four, my urine turned a bright orange color and I got scared about what was going on. But then I realized it was just that the Mesosilver had pulled all the poisons out of me, and they were just coming out in my urine. The difference in how I felt was noticeable. About a week later, I went back to the doctor’s office. The doctor couldn’t believe the difference in the space of one week! He wanted all the information about Mesosilver, as did my pharmacists and so many other people, that I finally got tired of downloading the information from the web site and just told people to look it up themselves. All I can say is Mesosilver saved my life.

I am so happy this product came into my life and I thank God for it. I feel really good now and I would do whatever I could to help get the word out.”
-- April Gower Rhodes, Age 51 - Florence Alabama

“Since my husband has been taking 4 tablespoons a day of Mesosilver, the symptoms have nearly disappeared. Before taking it, he used to fall asleep standing up. His skin was yellow, dark circles around his eyes, pain in his knees and chest and his urine was bright yellow, almost orange. Now the symptoms have gone away and it's only been 2 months, so we are hopeful. The silver is expensive, but the alternative is Interferon and the side effects make it impossible for us to consider. Anyway, we prefer a holistic approach to curing ourselves. Also, he is taking a dandelion supplement and something called Liver Formula which is high in milk thistle. Grapeseed and green tea are also beneficial in cleaning the blood and liver. Anything that detoxifies you will help. Milk thistle is supposed to be the best for rebuilding liver tissue. Also, drink LOTS of water and avoid diuretics. So, good luck, and we hope you all recover.”

– Trish Z  

“I have had Hepatitus C for over 40 years and have no symptoms. However a biopsy showed a start of cirrohsis. My doctor wants me to go on Interferon and I thought I would give Mesosilver a try. After one month my viral load went from 1,600,000 to 1,100,000. That’s a 1/3 reduction taking 4 tbsp a day. I take it twice a day as opposed to four times since it's more convenient. I heartily recommend it.”

-- Newaarkbob  

“I had been feeling really ill, to the point of not being able to function. My skin was yellow, I was swollen, I couldn’t focus, I felt confused, had weird bumps on my skin, was extremely depressed and couldn’t even do simple things like pay my bills. I went to a doctor who specialized in functional medicine and after a blood test, she told me that I had Hepatitis C, with a viral load of about 600,000. She recommended some supplements, which didn’t seem to have much effect. After researching Hepatitis treatments on the Internet, I began taking Mesosilver and the results were dramatic. Within a week or two of taking it, I felt dramatically better.”
-- Jodi Menard - Kenner, Louisiana  

“My husband started on Mesosilver in May of 2004, taking 4 tablespoons a day (follow the directions on the bottle). At that time his viral load count was over 3 million. We had him tested again a little over a month later in June of 2004, and the load had dropped to 500,000! We plan to test again in December and believe the test will reveal no traces of Hep C in his body.
We should add that we are Christians and have prayed and believe God has added His healing power to the effectiveness of the Mesosilver. Without that added element of faith in God, we could not promise the same results to everyone else. But we are thrilled with the results we have seen thus far. Will post again in December after he is tested the second time. People diagnosed with Hep C need hope, and we want to do our part to pass along for the benefit of others anything that produces results.”

– Mary E  

“I found out that I have been carrying the Hep C virus around for over 30 years. All the aches and pains, fatigue and general unease I had been experiencing for several years was definitely more serious than normal aging. By the time I found out what was wrong with me I was in real bad shape. I couldn’t move without great effort, my mental state was depressed and I felt as though there were no way out. At about the time I was scheduled to start taking the Peg-Interferon treatment I was in a bad place and didn't see any way out. I started researching alternative methods of treatment and found the Mesosilver. I didn't seem to have any other alternative but to at least try it. When I got my silver and prepared to take the first spoonful I admit that I was so nervous that my hand was shaking on the way to my mouth. Well the results have been miraculous. I am taking 4 tablespoons a day of the mesosilver, by the second day I was already beginning to feel better. By the fourth day I was feeling great but going through the "herx" reflex was exactly as it was explained to me. I felt good but had absolutely no energy. I slept for almost two days getting up only to do the necessary things. By the end of the week I was feeling better than I had in years!! My lower back pains were gone, my joint pains were gone, my energy level was rising, the world looked rosy after all. I'm going in for a blood test tomorrow to determine my viral load. When I started taking the mesosilver my viral load was over 3.3 million. I am anxious to get the results and then post them for all to read. Quite honestly though, I feelso good today and am continuing to feel better each day that even if my viral load hasn't changed at all I wouldn't care. I definitely owe a debt of gratitude to Purest Colloids and I think that anyone that has Hep C that isn't taking the Mesosilver is missing out on an opportunity to have a full and healthy life.

--Tom Mailheau

“I contracted Hepatitis C in the mid 1970s as a result of a blood transfusion. I didn’t even know I had it until 1998 when I had to give blood prior to surgery and got a letter from the blood bank saying they couldn’t accept my blood because I had the hepatitis C virus. I was sure they had made a mistake, and got tested three more times . . . but all three tests came back positive. Although I had been tired and low energy for years, no one had ever been able to find a cause; now I understood they were symptoms of Hepatitis. My symptoms grew progressively worse over the years, and when I finally went to see my hepatitis specialist in April of this year, he did a blood test and found that my viral load was 3 million! The doctor told me it was time to go on the medicine, so I began taking Inteferon shots once a week and taking the pill every day. This treatment basically destroyed my life and the lives of everyone around me. It was intolerable. When I went back to the doctor and asked if there were any alternatives, he told me there was one other shot he could give me, but that the results were marginal and the side effects were the same. “What if I do nothing?” I asked him. “You’ll eventually die,” was his response. I asked him how long he’d give me and he said he didn’t know: it could be six weeks, six months, six years, it just varied by individuals. I left his office devastated, depressed and in shock. I was 55 years old and facing death. I started taking the Mesosilver in April. Within two weeks of starting the Mesosilver, I couldn’t believe the change in the way I felt. I wasn’t nearly as tired, wasn’t sleeping nearly as much, had lots more energy and my breathing was really improved. After five weeks on Mesosilver, I went for a blood test on May 23rd (this time with our new family doctor) and when I got the results a week later, my viral load was down from 3 million to 171,000! That’s a 95% improvement in five weeks! I was elated!!More importantly, I felt really good, I was on the go again, doing housework, doing laundry, gardening again (which I had really missed), not sleeping nearly as much and basically sort of back to my normal routine. And this was still on only a third of the recommended dose! On July 7th, I went for another blood test. When we got the results on the 16th, the viral load was down to 12,500!My new doctor and I were practically dancing around the room. We couldn’t believe there had been this big a drop again! And my life is pretty much back to normal. I’m up at 6:00 or 7:00. I keep going all day and don’t even take naps!

“There are three distinctly different types of silver on the market labeled as "colloidal silver". There are true silver colloids, ionic silver solutions, and silver protein based products (also known as mild silver protein). Please go to which will explain all of this. Mesosilver has no protein in it. It is pure water and nanometer size particles of silver. The particles are so small that they easy pass through the cells and then the body, and do not accumulate. Mesosilver is a true silver colloid which does not have any side effects or interactions with medications. Our family has used it for a variety of problems and we have had no side effects. “

– Linda Moore  

“My viral load is dropping by 200,000 per month -- even my doctor is impressed. In addition to 4 TBS of Mesosilver a day, I recommend the following additional support because I know these things are also helping me to get better and feel better: 1. Getting plenty of rest! This is very, very important. If you have trouble sleeping, try melatonin. Sleep is when your body heals. This is so important with Hep C. 2. Eliminate or limit wheat intake. What produces ammonia, which elevates unhelpful enzymes. 3. Drink plenty of water -- half your body weight every day if you can. This is critical for flushing toxins out of the liver, and especially important to support the work the Mesosilver is doing. 4. Limit red meat, as this also produces ammonia in the system. 5. Eat fruit and lots of dark greens to supply iron without stressing the liver. My viral load is down from 8 million to 6.68 million in three months, and still dropping. Not only that, I'm feeling better. I attribute this mostly to Mesosilver, but I know these adjunct supports really help. It may take a few weeks to start to feel the difference . . . but you will. I'm now down to under 4 million (December 2004) from a high over million, having dropped over 2 million total. I'm still taking about 4 TBS of Mesosilver per day and still dropping at a steady rate of about 200,000 per month. My high was over 8 million originally, so now, at 3,800,000, this improvement is just unbelievable! God bless!

After receiving my lab test results for my HCV viral count, I am now adding my testimonial to the amazing effectiveness of Mesosilver in combating the Hep C virus (my genotype is 1a). I’ve had the virus for 18 years (but only discovered that fact in 2001) and have never sought treatment, mainly because I functioned well (except for mild to moderate fatigue on occasion), and I didn’t want to be subjected to the side effects of interferon treatment with its low cure odds. Also, I had been biding my time in the hope that HeptazymeTM would pass through the various phase testing trials and eventually come to market. Heptazyme was a drug designed to cleave the HCV genetic material in a region the virus needs to survive in its life cycle. Unfortunately, the drug itself could not survive the phase III trial, and the pharmaceutical company aborted further testing. That disappointment caused me to hit the Internet looking for alternative treatments. When I came across the various web sites promoting the use of silver, I was at the monitor for 18 straight hours getting my colloidal silver education and comparing the competing brands and theories that underlie ions versus silver particles. Fortunately, I bought into the theory of particle surface area rather than the seemingly plausible 5000 ppm saturation claim of the competition. As predicted, four days into taking the daily-prescribed 4 tbsp., I experienced the Herxheimer reaction (exacerbation of symptoms), which, for me, simply consisted of noticeable discomfort in the location of my liver. My body seems to have tolerated the virus quite well in view of its duration, and it was the first time I had experienced this right-quadrant pain, which only lasted for approximately five hours. Regretfully, I did not have a viral count prior to taking the Mesosilver. My last viral count was seven months ago, at which time it was 1,112,000 (The viral load classification chart rates a virus count below 200,000 as very low; 200,000-1 million: low; 1-5 million: medium; 5-25 million: high; above 25 million: very high.) Seventeen days after taking the Mesosilver, I had a viral count of 204,000! When I had the blood drawn for the count, I briefly explained to the doctor what I had learned about colloidal silver (particularly the Meso process in which metal particles are reduced to less than a nanometer in diameter). I discerned his to-be-expected skepticism. He relied on the belief that if silver were an effective treatment, everyone would know of it.. Be hopeful dear reader. Mesosilver really works. Note: After lowering my HCV viral load to 204,000 from over a million in a 17-day perio), I reduced my Mesosilver dosage from the recommended 4 tablespoons to approximately 1½ tablespoons. That was a no-no. A blood test taken six weeks later showed my viral count had increased to 341,000. So I’m back to 4 tablespoons a day.”

“I am a multiple liver transplant patient and am Hep C positive. My initial transplant was due to the effects of Hep C. In years past I tried everything out there, accupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, Interferon, three seperate courses of Interferon plus Ribaviron, the last course of treatment was 3 million units daily, pure hell. Nothing has worked. In October of 2003 I started taking 1 tablespoon of Mesosilver 4 times daily. I augmented it with daily prayer, which is what I believe is needed to make this work. GOD gave me another chance at life and I'm not about to leave him out of my recovery now. I have been charting my liver enzymes for years, but after starting Mesosilver I have found that my enzyme levels have actually come down. My GGT, ALT and AST have definitely made an improvement. This is verifiable proof and not just my thinking that I might feel better or have more energy, because I'm not quite sure if I do feel any better, but my body IS doing better. My transplant Doctor and my Gastroenterologist have both showed an interest in this but at this time will not make any judgments on it. I have not been following viral loads because the true test for me is if my liver function is doing better. My Doctor said the same thing. After 7 months there is a quantifiable improvement in my liver function so I am hopeful that after all of these years that this may finally be the answer. My suggestion to you is YES, use it. It won't help overnite, but it has helped me.”

-- Gene Kilber 

“ When I was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, the doctor described the Interferon treatment to me and all its side effects, including the physical side effects and the psychological ones like suicidal thoughts and depression. After hearing that, I just thought to myself, there’s got to be a better way, so I went on the Internet to look for alternatives. When I told the doctor I had found Mesosilver and was going to be trying it, he basically called me stupid. What he said was, “You look a lot smarter than that.” He also said, “It’s not going to make any difference, but go ahead and try it.” And I did. And the results were amazing. Within seven months, my viral load and liver count were back within normal limits. When the nurse called me with my test results, she said, “Good news, the drugs are working, all your results are back in line.” When I told her I wasn’t taking the drugs, she wanted to hear all about Mesosilver and kept me on the phone for a long time. I told her to have the doctor call me, but of course he never did. I started off taking 4 tablespoons of Mesosilver 4 times a day. My viral load went from 3.6 million to 1.5 million in the first three to four months. Then it went from 1.5 million to 4500 in another three months. So it took about seven months altogether for me to get within the normal ranges. Now I take 2 tablespoons twice a day as a maintenance dose. I’d like to personally thank the manufacturer of Mesosilver for basically saving my life.

Silver Kills Virus, Study Finds - Tuesday, October 18, 2005 - - In a groundbreaking study, the Journal of Nanotechnology has published a study that found silver nanoparticles kills HIV-1 and is likely to kill virtually any other virus. The study, which was conducted by the University of Texas and Mexico University, is the first medical study to ever explore the benefits of silver nanoparticles, according to Physorg

Support The Health Freedom Protection Act - FDA and FTC Censorship robs the American people of health information indispensable to their exercise of freedom of choice. FDA and FTC Censorship benefits large drug companies by protecting them from competition and destroying innovation. The solution lies in a new law, one that will strip FDA and FTC of their censorship powers.

What users have reported

Users have reported that their symptoms (pain and fatigue) have typically subsided after 60 to 90 days. By having a blood test and lab work performed at least every 90 days to monitor viral load, users have reported their viral load counts returns to normal levels after about nine months. It is recommended that a viral load count be performed shortly before starting to use colloidal silver to establish a base reading. By comparing subsequent readings taken at 90 day intervals the viral load count can be monitored as it returns to normal levels.

Determining viral load count

Experience has shown that different laboratories use procedures that produce differing results when measuring viral load count. Consistency of measurement is vitally important to properly monitor the viral load over the course of using colloidal silver. Viral load readings will become substantially elevated if the person being tested has the flu or a common cold. Therefore, the testing of viral load count for all the tests should be performed by the same laboratory and at a time when the subject is free of flu and common cold viruses. Based on experience we recommend the use of only one laboratory to do the viral load count: Quest Diagnostics

No drug side effects

Some medications have nasty side effects, including liver damage. All natural Mesosilver is a pure silver colloid which has no side effects and is totally non-toxic.

Effectiveness of Colloidal Silver is Unparalleled

Colloidal silver has a history spanning hundreds of years as an effective germ fighter. It is believed that the pathogens that cause infections cannot become immune to the killing power of colloidal silver. The known germicidal properties of silver combined with the high particle surface area of a colloid enhances the body's natural defense against infections without using drugs. No side effects from using colloidal silver have ever been reported.

Feeling Worse Before Feeling Better?

Some users experience a "healing crisis" also known as a Herxheimer reaction when using colloidal silver.

Simply stated, it is a reaction that occurs when the body is detoxifying and the released toxins either exacerbate the symptoms being treated or create their own symptoms such as headaches, body ache, joint pain, sweating, general malaise, sore throat, nausea and/or flu-like symptoms.

Here you can read details on the symptoms and how to effectively cope with the Herxheimer reaction.

You should not use this product if you are allergic to silver!

Allergic reactions to silver, while not unheard of, are uncommon. Someone having an allergic reaction to silver would not be able to handle a metallic silver object such as silver jewelry without causing an allergic reaction. Those who are uncertain if they are allergic to silver should apply a few drops to the back of the hand to see if an allergic reaction results. If you do not see a reaction within 30 minutes you can be fairly certain that you are not allergic to silver.


Dosage is one tablespoon taken four times daily on an empty stomach at least 15 -20 minutes before a meal or 2 hours after a meal. It is very important that Mesosilver be taken on an empty stomach for maximum effectiveness. To measure the dosage a cooking measuring spoon should be used, not a silverware tablespoon. One 500 mL bottle will last about  eight days.  A four bottle pack will last approximately one month and is offered with a substantial discount (see price list on the order page). Expect to take this dosage for up to nine months or until the viral load count returns to normal.

See the protocol that has worked for many users.
