How to attach a Lixit Water Bottle with Argentyn 23 colloidal silver

The water bottle should only be used for the dispensing of Argentyn 23. -- NEVER SHOULD A WATER BOTTLE BE USED AS THE ONLY WATER SOURCE IN THE CAGE INSTEAD OF A WATER CUP.  ONLY USE THE WATER BOTTLE ALONG WITH A WATER CUP.  Parrots need to submerge their beak to rinse their mouth and throat much the same way that humans rinse our mouths and gargle. Without a water cup available, sticky food will remain on the beak and eventually come off onto the feathers when the bird preens. When the residue dries, barbering of the feather will occur as the bird chews off the dried residue. Daily misting the bird with water and colloidal silver in a ratio of 7-1 will soften the residue and enable the bird to preen without chopping off chunks of feathers.

This is what I do.  Remember, the bottle must be totally full with liquid to establish a vacuum or it will all run out immediately if you try to fill it less than full.  To test whether the bird will have interest in the bottle, I fill the bottle with only 1 Tbsp. colloidal silver in 8 oz. distilled water and daily observe how long it takes the bird to start drinking from it regularly.  Tie a sprig of millet to the cage bars right next to the bottle stem.  The bird will discover that water drips out of the stem when they bump it as they go after the millet. Once they show interest, you will not be wasting a more concentrated amount of colloidal silver. Never use a water bottle without putting in at least 1 Tbsp. silver in it.

Depending on the situation, you could put 4 oz silver and 4 oz. distilled water if you want to give a concentrated treatment.  Put 4 oz. Argentyn 23 into the 8 oz. water bottle, and REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST ALSO FILL IT TO THE VERY TOP WITH AN ADDITIONAL 4 OZ. OF DISTILLED WATER.  Tighten stem securely. If you try to fill the bottle only part way -- all the contents will leak out immediately. With each refill, the bottle must be filled 100% full and inverted. As the water level drops when the ball is touched, a vacuum will form to keep the contents in the bottle without dripping until the bird drinks the entire contents by touching the ball, drop by drop.

The spring and clips have to be snapped onto the vertical bars at about the mid-point of the bottle. The stem has to rest on one of the horizontal bars so that it does not drop lower than where you position it above the perch. The perch should be attached about 6-8" below so that the stem is beak high. I like to put the bottle on the door of the cage. It is sensible to position it away from the food bowls so that the bird does not have a lot of sticky food attached to the beak when they drink so that it is less likely that food residue on the beak will wick back into the bottle. 

You can leave the bottle if it contains Argentyn 23 in the cage for 7 days or less. If the bird drinks the entire contents in less than 7 days, refill with the same ratio. You can repeat the following week with another 4 oz Argentyn 23 and 4 oz. distilled water. Or for subsequent refills, you can reduce the Argentyn 23 to 1 oz and 7 oz distilled water. Continue with this ratio, refilling it every time it is drained in 7 days or less. If the bird does not drink all 8 oz. in the course of one week, discard the remaining contents every seven days and refill fresh at least once a week.

MOST IMPORTANTLY -- Do not EVER use a water bottle in the cage unless it has in it at least one ounce of Argentyn 23 together with 7 oz of water. Do not ever completely remove the water cup from the cage and DO NOT give the bird a water bottle as the only water source. After every meal birds need to suck a quantity of water into their beak to rinse their mouth and throat much the same way that humans rinse our mouths and gargle -- and flush it back out into the cup repeatedly until their beak and mouth is clean. If parrots cannot rinse the food residue off their beak in a water cup after every meal -- sticky food will remain on the beak and eventually come off onto the feathers when the bird preens -- which will then dry on the feather -- and which the bird will eventually chew off the feather -- thus destroying the feather. WATER BOTTLES USED WITHOUT A WATER CUP ALSO IN THE CAGE CAN BE A MAJOR CAUSE OF PLUCKING BECAUSE THE BIRD CANNOT ADEQUATELY RINSE HIS BEAK.

It is not a problem if the water CUP becomes murky in the course of the day with the food residue that the bird rinses out of their beak. Change the water cup daily -- once is often enough. The water BOTTLE should only be used for the dispensing of Argentyn 23.

AGAIN: A WATER BOTTLE SHOULD NEVER BE USED INSTEAD OF A WATER CUP -- A WATER BOTTLE SHOULD ONLY BE USED ALONG WITH A WATER CUP.  I NEVER use a water bottle without putting in at least 1 Tbsp. silver in it - if you want to continue to have it available for the bird IN ADDITION TO -- NOT INSTEAD OF -- A WATER CUP.


Colloidal Silver

Argentyn 23™ is an exclusive proprietary formula designed to provide safe and precise levels of functional silver. Argentyn 23™ features a unique particle size (average 0.0008 microns) and ultra-fine dispersion that may enhance bioavailability of silver ions. The silver content is 99.99% pure. Argentyn 23™ is the purest, safest*, and most effective colloidal silver hydrosols ever seen in the history of colloidal technology. The professional brand, Argentyn 23, is trusted by thousands of doctors.

Over the past two decades, the term “colloidal silver” has been dramatically polluted by manufacturers that produce (knowingly or unknowingly) silver products contaminated by the presence of salts, proteins, compounds, stabilizers, and oxidation – all of which serve to degrade and diminish the bio-activity of the silver, and render it potentially toxic.

A Bio-Active Colloidal Silver™, such as Argentyn 23, represents the ultimate refinement and purity of the colloidal silver category. It is the suspension of a high content (96%) of ultra-fine, positively charged silver ions (Ag+) in only pharmaceutical-grade purified water. This is not to be confused with ionic silver, an inferior form of neutral silver/silver salt that is in solution (dissolved), rather than in colloidal suspension. The positively charged silver ions (cations) in a Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™ remain in suspension, maintaining their fully active state for use within the body.

To maintain the high quality and purity of its silver hydrosols, Argentyn 23 is bottled in amber glass as opposed to some manufacturers still using plastic.

How Colloidal Silver Works

Silver has always been one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is non-toxic. Just as we would die within a few minutes if our lungs were suddenly incapacitated, a microbe cannot live without proper respiration. It suffocates and dies. More importantly, colloidal silver does not damage human enzymes or alter the body’s chemistry.

Colloidal silver is a powerful, natural antibiotic and disinfectant. When it arrives near a one-celled microbe, it inhibits the cell’s metabolic enzymes necessary for energy utilization. Germs cannot build a resistance to the action of silver. There are no known organisms that can completely withstand the impact of silver.

Studies performed at the UCLA School of Medicine Center for Health Sciences confirmed that colloidal silver kills harmful bacterial, viral, and fungal organisms just minutes after contact. It does not affect the “good bacteria” of the digestive system, or the Doederlein bacillus, essential in preventing yeast infection in women. Therefore, pro-biotic programs can be continued while taking colloidal silver, without the fear of contradiction.


Man’s use of silver as a disinfectant dates back to our earliest recorded history. The Greeks and others used silver vessels for water and other liquids to keep them fresh.
The Egyptians used silver as a thin beaten paper-like product and wrapped it around wounds to avoid infection. The Druids lined their drinking vessels with the metal for disinfecting and sanitizing water.

It was observed that those ancient families who ate from silver utensils rarely were sick and had few infections. This knowledge passed on to kings, emperors, sultans and their families and members of their royal courts. They ate from silver plates, drank from silver cups, used silver utensils and stored their food in silver containers.

Settlers in the Australian outback suspended silverware in the water tanks to retard spoilage. Generations ago, pioneers trekking across the Wild West in the US faced many hardships. Keeping safe drinking water was one of them. Bacteria, algae, etc., found a fertile breeding ground in wooden casks, which were carried by the wagons. They placed silver coins in the casks to retard the growth of the spoilage organisms. They also placed silver coins in their milk to keep it fresh.

Wrapping wounds in silver foil was a common treatment around the turn of the century to prevent infection. Eventually, man learned to make silver nitrate and use it in wounds as an antibiotic. But silver nitrate is a silver salt and is caustic, and therefore burns tissue, much like iodine. These early, unstable and crudely made silver solutions were sometimes injected directly into the body, taken orally or applied topically. Remarkably, there were no significant side effects.


Jim Powell reported in a Science Digest article in March 1978, titled “Our Mightiest Germ Fighter”: “Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills hundreds. Additionally, silver-resistant strains fail to develop”.

While silver has been used for centuries to purify water, modern ionization technology was developed by the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) in the early days of the space program as a lightweight method of purifying recycled water on spacecrafts. In the United States and Canada, more than 100 hospitals have installed silver-based water purifying systems to eradicate Legionnaire’s disease, a deadly bacteria that infects hot water pipes and storage tanks in large buildings.

Antibiotic resistance is quickly becoming a public health nightmare. Traditional antibiotics continue to lose their ability to kill certain strains of bacteria. To date, nearly every disease causing organism known has become resistant to at least one antibiotic, and several are immune to more than one. Scientists have known since the dawn of antibiotic age that the more an antibiotic is used, the quicker it tends to become useless due to bacterial resistance.


Silver has been proven to be useful against hundreds of infectious conditions. The list of minor and serious conditions that can be resolved using colloidal silver is practically endless. Additionally, there has NEVER been an interaction with any medication.

In “Use of Colloids in Health and Disease”, 1910, Dr. Henry Crooks wrote: “...that certain metals when in a colloidal state have a highly germicidal action, but are quite harmless to human beings....it may be applied in a much more concentrated form and with better results...all fungus, virus, bacterium, B. Tuberculosis... ..Staphylococcus Pyogenes, various Streptococci and other pathogenic organisms are all killed in three to four minutes; in fact, no microbe is known that is not killed by this colloid in laboratory experiments in six minutes. . . .”

Colloidal silver has been found to be both a preventative and a remedy for infections, and fermentation due to any bacteria, fungus or virus, especially staphylococcus and streptococcus, which are found present in almost every disease condition.

Through simple high school biology studies we learn that all living things exist in the colloidal form. The body can more readily use medications already in the colloidal form, as opposed to the crystalline form. Colloidal silver is one of the most usable form of the most effective disease fighter there is. The body utilizes colloidal silver to fight disease-causing organisms, and to aid healing.

Consumption of colloidal silver on a daily basis is like having a second immune system. It would significantly reduce the incidence of infection. The ability to use colloidal silver safely on a daily basis could be a powerful preventative health measure to enhance the lives of millions of people susceptible to chronic infections.


The basic uses of colloidal silver can be as a preventative and curative source. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) reported that the US Government participated in The Clean Water in Homes in Border Area Municipalities Program, at the request of the Mexican government, to provide clean water to all of the country’s communities.

Few people are aware of the full range of therapeutic possibilities that colloidal silver offers. They might rinse their gums with it before swallowing, but not think about using it for anything else. By spraying it externally, you can clear up everything from acne to athlete’s foot, diaper rash and poison ivy. The results are uniformly amazing.

Spray it directly on festering sores, psoriasis and skin rashes and watch what happens. Rinse your mouth with it, gargle with it, soak dentures in it, and bad breath is a thing of the past. Add to bathwater, douches, colon irrigation, and nasal spray. Drip into eyes and ears for minor infections or inflammations.

Put colloidal silver in a pump bottle and spray it around kitchen and bathroom. Mist countertops, cutting boards, sponges and towels to eliminate bacteria and the infections and malodors they bring. Spray fruits and vegetables before storing, and add to milk to retard spoilage. Using colloidal silver in home canning or freezing can vastly improve the shelf life and freshness of the food.

Add to dishwater and mopping solutions. Add a capful to a gallon of water and use it as plant spray to eliminate unwanted fungus and bacteria causing root rot, etc. Add it to water base paints and never worry about mold or mildew again. In humid areas, spray on carpets drapes and stored clothing to avoid mildew and musty odors.

This is a pure and safe element and you cannot overdose. The U.S. Government’s Center for Disease Control confirmed in 1995 that there has never been any allergic, toxic or carcinogenic reactions to colloidal silver. And the Environment Protection Agency has reported that silver is neither an eye nor skin irritant.

Richard Davies and Samuel Etris of The Silver Institute, in a 1996 monograph entitled “The Development and Functions of Silver in Water Purification and Disease Control”, discussed three mechanisms of deactivation that silver utilizes to incapacitate disease causing organisms. They are: Catalytic Oxidation, Reaction with Bacterial Cell Membranes, and Binding with DNA.


Silver, in its atomic state, has the capacity to absorb oxygen and act as a catalyst to bring about oxidation. Atomic (nascent) oxygen absorbed onto the surface of silver ions in solution will readily react with the sulfhydryl (-S-H) groups surrounding the surface of bacteria or viruses to remove the hydrogen atoms (as water), causing the sulfur atoms to form an R-S-S-R bond; blocking respiration and causing the bacteria to expire. Employing a simple catalytic reduction/oxidation reaction, colloidal silver will react with any negative charge presented by the organism’s transport or membrane proteins and deactivate them.


There is evidence that silver ions attach to membrane surface radicals of bacteria, impairing cell respiration and blocking its energy transfer system. One explanation is based on the nature of enzyme construction: Specific enzymes are required for a given biochemical activity to take place. Enzyme molecules usually require a specific metallic atom as part of the molecular matrix in order to function. A metal of higher valance can replace a metal of lower valance in the enzyme complex, preventing the enzyme from functioning normally. Silver, with a valance of plus 2, can replace many metals with a lower, or equal valance that exhibit weaker atomic bonding properties.


Studies by C.L. Fox and S.M. Modak with pseudomonas aeruginosa, a tenacious bacteria that is difficult to treat, demonstrated that as much as 12% of silver is taken up by the organism’s DNA. While it remains unclear exactly how the silver binds to the DNA without destroying the hydrogen bonds holding the lattice together, it nevertheless prevents the DNA from unwinding, an essential step for cellular replication to occur.
