Candida Conquered Naturally!

So I Think I Might Have Candida, What are the Tell-Tale Signs?

Most Candida infections result in minimal complications such as redness, itching and discomfort, though complication may be severe or fatal if left untreated.

For people with strong immune systems, Candidiasis is usually a very localized infection of the skin or mucosal membranes, including the oral cavity (thrush), the pharynx or esophagus, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary bladder, or the genitalia (vagina, penis).

Candidiasis is a really common cause of vaginal irritation, or vaginitis, and can also occur on the male genitals.

For those with weaker immune systems Candida infections can affect the esophagus with the potential of becoming systemic which causes a much more serious condition, a fungemia called candidemia.

A List of Candida Symptoms (Candidiasis)

With something as common and sometimes systemic as candida is, symptoms can be all over the map. Lots of times they’re hard to diagnose because they vary depending on the area affected.

Infection of the vagina or vulva may cause severe itching, burning, soreness, irritation, and a whitish or whitish-gray cottage cheese-like discharge, often with a curd-like appearance. That can be confusing too because those symptoms are also present in the more common bacterial vaginosis.

It’s worth noting here that in a 2002 study published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, only 33 percent of women who were self-treating for a yeast infection actually had a yeast infection. Most had either a bacterial vaginosis or a mixed-type infection.

For the men, symptoms of infection in the male genitalia include red patchy sores near the head of the penis or on the foreskin, severe itching, or a burning sensation. Candidiasis of the penis can also have a white discharge, although uncommon. However, having no symptoms at all is common, and a more severe form of the symptoms may emerge later.

Once this happens you start getting some of these symptoms;

Gas/bloating Joint pain Adrenal/Thyroid Failure Indigestion
Bad breath Hemorrhoids Diarrhea Ulcers
Anti-social behavior Constipation colitis Lethargic/laziness
Heartburn Suicidal tendencies Intestinal pain Dry mouth

How antibiotics (and very stupid doctors) can make us sicker

Used to treat viral infections, like colds and flu, they don’t help the patient and they boost medication-resistant bacteria

By Dr. Stephen Sears, state epidemiologist

AUGUSTA – The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Maine doctors and Maine hospitals have news for parents this cold and flu season: Antibiotics don’t work for a cold or the flu.

A nurse in Salem, Ore., dons a protective gown, gloves and mask as she enters the room of a patient with a MRSA infection. Overreliance on antibiotics encourages drug-resistant bacteria like MRSA, a state health official says.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Dr. Stephen Sears is the state epidemiologist and a member of the Maine Medical Association’s Public Health Committee.

WHAT TO DO FOR COLDS AND FLU

Children and adults with viral infections recover when the illness has run its course. Colds caused by viruses may last for two weeks or longer.

Measures that can help a person with a cold or flu feel better:

Increase fluid intake.

Use a cool mist vaporizer or saline nasal spray to relieve congestion.

Soothe throat with ice chips, sore throat spray or lozenges (for older children and adults).

Viral infections may sometimes lead to bacterial infections. Patients should inform their doctor if their illness gets worse or lasts a long time.

Antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses

And colds, flu and most sore throats are caused by viruses. Antibiotics don’t touch viruses – never have, never will. And it’s not really news. It’s a long-documented medical fact.

But tell that to parents seeking relief for a child’s runny nose. Research shows that most Americans have either missed the message about appropriate antibiotic use or they simply don’t believe it.

According to public opinion research, there is a perception that “antibiotics cure everything.”

Americans believe in the power of antibiotics so much that patients go to the doctor expecting to get a prescription. And many do. Three out of 10 children who visit an outpatient provider with the common cold receive an antibiotic. This is an improvement from previous years, but antibiotics are not indicated for a common cold.

Why does this happen? Physicians often are too pressured for time to engage in lengthy explanations of why antibiotics won’t work. And when the diagnosis is uncertain – as many symptoms for viral and bacterial infections are similar – doctors are more likely to yield to patient demands for antibiotics.

The problem is, taking antibiotics when they are not needed can do more harm than good. Widespread inappropriate use of antibiotics is one of the major reasons for an increase in drug-resistant bacteria. Families and entire communities feel the impact when disease-causing germs become resistant to antibiotics.

The most obvious consequence of inappropriate antibiotic use is its effect on the sick patient. When antibiotics are incorrectly used to treat children or adults with viral infections, such as colds and flu, they aren’t getting the best care for their condition. A course of antibiotics won’t fight the virus, make the patient feel better, yield a quicker recovery or keep others from getting sick.

Antibiotics also can have serious side effects ranging from nausea, vomiting and diarrhea to life-threatening allergic reactions.

A less obvious consequence of antibiotic overuse is the boost it gives to drug-resistant disease-causing bacteria. Almost every type of bacteria has become less responsive to antibiotic treatment when it really is needed. These antibiotic-resistant bacteria can quickly spread to relatives, classmates and co-workers – threatening the community with a new strain of infectious disease that is more difficult to cure and more expensive to treat.

For example, cases of H1N1 flu have shown resistance to oseltamivir, one of only two antivirals that work against it. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, known as MRSA, remains a problem in many health care settings and can be life-threatening for patients who have weakened immune systems. Even the common sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea is now showing potential for resistance to cephalosporins, the only recommended antibiotic left to treat this infection.

Antibiotic resistance increases the economic burden on the entire health care system. Resistant infections are often more severe, leading to longer hospital stays and increased costs for treatment.

According to the latest available data, antibiotic resistance in the United States costs an estimated $20 billion a year in excess health care costs, $35 million in other societal costs and more than 8 million additional days that people spend in the hospital.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s most pressing public health problems. For this reason, the Maine CDC, the Maine Medical Association, the Maine Hospital Association, the Maine Osteopathic Association and the Maine Public Health Association have joined with the U.S. CDC to recognize Nov. 12-18 as Get Smart About Antibiotics Week.

Americans of all ages can lower this risk by talking to their doctors and using antibiotics appropriately during this cold and flu season.

Avoid antibiotics altogether!

Try a natural approach to bacterial, viral and fungal infections.

Hi Ho, Silver

Hi Ho, Silver

Everyone knows what silver is. It’s the white, shiny metal used to make jewelry, cutlery, and coins, not to mention the bullets of a certain legendary masked man who rode a horse by that name. But besides all its beauty, ordinary metallic silver has legendary antimicrobial properties. In ancient Greece and Rome, those who could afford it often stored their perishable liquids in silver containers, because the metal helped retard the growth of microorganisms that spoil food and cause disease. Prior to the development of refrigeration, it was once common to drop a silver coin into a container of milk to retard spoilage.
There is no doubt that inorganic silver salts are highly germicidal. In more modern times, the development of silver-based therapies closely paralleled the growing awareness of the microbial etiology of many diseases. Silver’s germicidal action was first documented during the late 1800s. A few years after Louis Pasteur in France and Ignaz Semmelweis in Hungary began touting the antimicrobial benefits of high temperatures and hand washing, respectively, silver therapy pioneers such as Lea, Crookes, and Credé, began developing early colloidal silver products that appeared to possess remarkable antimicrobial properties.

Great history!

During the early years of the 20th century, as medical scientists searched in vain for a “magic bullet” that would destroy pathogens but leave healthy tissue unscathed, scores of scientific papers were published documenting the beneficial effects of silver-based products for treating bacteria of all types, including those that cause diseases like typhoid, gonorrhea, various gynecologic and ophthalmic infections.1,2 We know today that these pioneering researchers came agonizingly close to finding their magic bullet, and—like those carried by that “masked rider of the plains”—it was made of pure silver.
Beginning in the early 1900s, it became common practice to place a few drops of silver nitrate solution in the eyes of newborn babies at birth to prevent ophthalmic infections that could cause blindness. When wires or other metallic devices had to be implanted in the body, the preferred metal was silver due to its inherent antimicrobial properties. Bacteria simply could not grow on it.3

So confident were some turn-of-the-century physicians in the germicidal power of silver that they would perform what might be considered reckless stunts to demonstrate it. At a 1916 meeting of the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, for example, one attendee, Dr. Baughman of Richmond, Virginia, described his encounter with the pioneer silver researcher, Credé, in Dresden, Germany: “He [Credé] invited me to see him operate. He took a probe, stuck it into an abscess, put some silver solution on it, and offered me to put it in my mouth. I did not care to do so, but he did put it in his own mouth. He told me that this silver solution would cure any sort of septic trouble.”4

By 1939, as penicillin and other antibiotic drugs began to replace silver colloids, the American Medical Association recognized at least 96 different proprietary silver-based products in clinical use at the time.5 Even today, silver sulfadiazine is considered by most medical experts to be the topical antiseptic of choice, i.e., the gold standard, in patients with extensive burns. This drug is known to inhibit the growth of nearly all pathogenic bacteria and fungi, including some species that are resistant to antibiotics.6, 7

Until 1938, silver-based products were the most widely used and most effective antimicrobial agents in medical practice. As penicillin and the other antibiotic drugs became increasingly available in the ensuing decades, silver-based products, which, by comparison, were prohibitively expensive, relatively slow-acting, sometimes crudely formulated, and often difficult to use properly (they tended to be very unstable, and had to be mixed immediately prior to use to prevent precipitation), soon fell into disuse, except for a few select applications, as noted above.

Fast forward to now

Recently, however, silver’s antimicrobial properties have been enjoying a rebirth in interest among medical professionals for a variety of reasons.

  • First, the overuse of conventional antibiotic drugs has led to the development of widespread antibiotic resistance among many common bacteria. There is a very real fear among infectious disease specialists that any day now a common bacterial species will become resistant to all known antibiotics. Already, several common bacteria have been identified that are resistant to every antibiotic but one–vancomycin. As this article was being prepared, the New England Journal of Medicine published the most recent incidence of this frightening trend, an outbreak of multidrug-resistant pneumococcal pneumonia and bacteremia.8 Silver may have an important advantage over conventional antibiotics in that it kills all pathogenic microorganisms, and no organism has ever been reported to readily develop resistance to it.
  • Second, silver-containing products are not only far less costly to produce than their pre-WWII ancestors, they are also more effective, safer, more stable, and easier to use.
  • Third, and most exciting of all, it is a fact that they may be safe and effective for the prevention and/or treatment of a variety of general internal and topical infections, including:
  1. Ear infections
  2. Thrush (candida)
  3. The common cold and other viral infections
  4. E. coli infections
  5. Intestinal infections
  6. Sinus infections
  7. Leukemia
  8. HIV infection
  9. Lyme disease
  10. Herpes
  11. Gingivitis
  12. Food poisoning

    The FDA has set out to ban the use of many colloidal silver products,
    calling them ineffective and “misbranded” for their labeled uses. The FDA has also begun playing upthe negative side effects associated with the use of these products, particularly a condition known as argyria.9 This well-known effect of an overdose of silver saltsappears as a permanent ashen-grey discoloration of the skin, conjunctiva, and internal organs. As for safety, argyria is not a recognized side effect of mild silver protein, nor are there any other side effects.All Colloidal Silvers Are Not Created Equal1. Particles, Not Ions:
    Silver colloids are composed of silver atoms, whereas all other colloidal silver preparations are composed of silver ions. While silver ions are highly toxic at high concentrations, silver atoms are not.

    2. Ideal Particle Size:
    In order to kill bacteria and other microbes, silver particles need to fall within a narrow range that has been determined by scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Silver particles made from silver atoms are exceedingly small and within the ideal range. Most importantly, the particulate size does not change, as it does with ionic colloidal silver.

    3. Stability:
    A colloid is a suspension of insoluble particles in a liquid medium. As one early 20th century colloid researcher described it, “A beam of light passed through a colloidal solution illuminates its path, just as a beam of sunlight in a darkened room is visible when the air contains dust or smoke.”10 Most products today that are touted to be colloidal silver are actually not colloidal suspensions at all, but are, in reality, ionic solutions. These solutions are inherently unstable. The silver particles soon settle out, like the dust floating around a room. Using a silver product that has settled out will be ineffective at best, or dangerous at worst.

Early versions of colloidal silver were made by simply grinding up metallic silver or a silver salt, such as silver nitrate, into a fine powder and suspending the resulting particles in an appropriate liquid medium. But there are serious problems with these methods.

Grinding up pure silver yields large particles that do not remain in solution very long. Such solutions, properly used, could be effective—but are difficult to use. They have to be prepared just before use, shaken vigorously to force the silver into solution, quickly drawn into a hypodermic syringe and immediately injected intravenously.

An effective dose using such preparations required extremely high concentrations of silver. It was not uncommon for patients to receive an average dose of one gram of silver per day. Such doses were prone to cause argyria.

Most “colloidal silver” sold today in health food stores and over the Internet is made electrically by placing silver electrodes in water. Applying an electric current to the electrodes releases silver ions into the water. This resulting solution contains silver ions that can certainly kill a few pathogens, and in most cases does so safely. The problem is that the solutions so produced are extremely weak, containing silver ions at a concentration of only 3 to 5 parts per million (ppm). In order to be effective for treating infections, the silver concentration should be at least 3000 to 4000 ppm.

The particle size of these electrically made ionic silver preparations is also problematic. Although the particles start out at a bactericidal level, the fact that they are ions, i.e., charged particles, means that they tend to attract each other and soon begin forming ever larger clusters that eventually become too large to kill bacteria and too large even to stay in solution.

The ideal approach appeared to be colloidal silver preparation made from silver particles (pure silver atoms) of the most effective antibacterial size that would stay in suspension indefinitely. Was such an ideal formulation possible? At first, it did not seem so. But then scientists made a breakthrough. They found a way to combine trace amounts of silver atoms (which are inherently safer than ions) with a protein in distilled water to form a colloidal dispersion of sufficient concentration to be effective against pathogenic organisms. So stable was this colloid that none has ever come out of suspension, including samples produced more than seven years ago!

The next question was could this true colloidal suspension efficaciously and safely kill pathogenic organisms? Remarkably, when the clinical results started coming in, they were uniformly and overwhelmingly positive. The scientists found that their colloidal silver product was clinically effective against virtually every infectious organism tested, yet was completely nontoxic. It did not even cause argyria with prolonged use of high doses.

How Does It Work?
No one is quite sure why silver is lethal to living cells. According to one theory, silver binds to microorganisms, which somehow causes the body to eliminate them. It is also possible that silver, which is a foreign body, is recognized as such, thereby causing a general activation of the immune system, which then kills all pathogens. A third possibility is that the rapid back-and-forth brownian motion, which is characteristic of colloidal silver particles, somehow literally pulverizes the pathogens.

An even more interesting question that according to everything we know about silver, the atoms won’t kill anything; only the ions are lethal. How then, could a colloidal silver preparation made from silver atoms have any clinical benefit? The answer, which stumped the researchers for several years, was actually quite obvious when they finally figured it out.

What happens when silver is exposed to oxygen? It tarnishes! That is, it becomes oxidized, forming silver ions. It’s as simple as that. Unlike the injection of high concentrations of purely ionic colloidal silver, the production of silver ions with mild silver protein is slow and measured, because it only occurs when a silver atom comes in direct contact with a molecule of oxygen. Think of it as a natural, timed-release silver.

The result is a more gradual effect. The safety and prolonged anti-microbial effect of this product has been demonstrated in studies in which enormous doses of mild silver protein have been administered intravenously to people with AIDS, chronic Lyme disease, or “flesh-eating” staph or streptococcal infections. And, as the FDA-registered labeling clearly states, it has “no known side effects.”

It appears that medicine finally has its “silver bullet.”

Nature’s Best Kept Secret: An incredible Antibiotic Provided by God!

One of the best kept secrets in modern medicine, is the remarkable antibiotic characteristics of silver. Silver has been used as a medicine and preservative by many cultures throughout history dating back to the ancient Greeks who stored their drinking liquids in silver-laden vessels to prevent spoilage and contamination.

Even early pioneers trekking across the wilderness of America placed silver coins in their water barrels and milk containers to protect them from bacteria and algae.

Practically everyone who reads these words had a silver solution placed in their eyes soon after birth to prevent any type of secondary infection, including gonorrhea infections of the eyes. This practice began with the German Obstetrician Dr. K.S. F. Crede in 1884 at his university clinic in Leipsige. Now, the application of these silver droplets is required by law in the United States, Canada, Norway and Denmark.

BUBONIC PLAGUE:

Silver even protected the wealthy aristocrats of Europe from the devastation of the Bubonic Plague during the Middle Ages. Unwittingly, the “blue bloods” as they became known, drank liquids from silver vessels and thereby protected themselves from the diseases that killed multitudes.

You have probably heard the phrase – “born with a silver spoon in his mouth.” During the times when the plagues ravaged Europe, mothers knew that putting a silver spoon in an infants’ mouth could ward off the killer diseases. Interestingly enough, in early nineteenth century America, silver baby pacifies were commonly used to give added protection to newborns!

COLLOIDAL SILVER NOW USED IN MAJOR BURN CENTERS:

The late Dr. Carl Moyer, chairman of Washington University’s Department of Surgery, received a grant to develop better treatments for burn victims. Dr. Harry Margraf of St. Louis, as the chief biochemist, worked with Dr. Moyer and other surgeons to find an antiseptic strong enough, yet safe to use over larger areas of the body. Dr. Margraf reviewed 22 antiseptic compounds but found toxicity in every one of them. One, in particular, mercury, was extremely effective but highly toxic. His conclusions were that popular medical antiseptics could only be used in small areas of the body due to their high toxicity.

Dr. Moyer noted that many of these antibiotics were ineffective against a number of harmful bacteria, including the biggest killer in burn cases – a greenish blue bacterium called Pseudomonas acruginose. UCLA medical lab researchers found silver to be effective on every virus they tested it on including Pseudomonas acruginose . [our lab test showed the exact same results]

As a result of their extensive research, silver in colloidal form is now used in the majority of all major burn centers in the United States. Silver ointment is also commonly prescribed by doctors for major and minor burns and can be obtained at most drug stores.

PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS:

In the early 1900’s the antibacterial solution Colloidal Silver was the choice of medical practitioners. It proved to be enormously effective against infectious organisms and extremely safe to use, without the negative side effects associated with drugs.

In 1917, Dr. Malcom Morris reported that silver would rapidly subdue the inflammation of an enlarged prostate or an infected bladder or hemorrhoids. In the same year, Dr. Alfred Searle demonstrated that colloidal silver was extremely deadly to parasites and bacteria but had no toxicity to the host animal, including humans.

Up until the beginning the World War II, Colloidal Silver became widely used in medicine as one of the main-stays of antimicrobial treatment, until money became an issue. As Colloidal Silver became increasingly expensive and the pharmaceutical companies developed antibiotics as we know them today, silver took a back seat to drugs and manufactured antibiotics. However, as usual, when we deviate from nature, unforeseen problems began to develop. Forty years after the advent of antibiotics, many types of disease-causing organisms had built immunity to the action of the antibiotics.

Fortunately, the timely re-emergence of Colloidal Silver due to new technology and much reduced cost in production, may prove to be one of the best remedies that the public now has to protect themselves.

With the growing threat of bio-terrorism, every family should have the capability of producing this inexpensive antibiotic that has been proven effective against killers such as anthrax and bubonic plague.

Colloidal Silver is a tasteless, odorless, non-toxic, pure, natural substance consisting of sub-microscopic clusters of silver particles, suspended by a tiny electric charge placed on each particle, within a suitable liquid. The molecule’s size usually ranges from 0.01 to about 0.001 micron in diameter (very small). The particles do not settle but remain suspended since the electric charge exerts more force than gravity on each particle. Colloidal is the form of choice since the body must convert a crystalline solution to colloidal before it can be used. Taken in moderation, it is a powerful adjunct to our immune systems, by killing harmful disease-causing organisms, and aids healing.

CRITICS:

It should be noted that the use of Colloidal Silver as an antibiotic has its critics. It cannot be registered as a pharmaceutical drug or patented because it is found freely in nature instead of being manufactured and classified as a synthetic drug.

The pharmaceutical industry has made every effort to debunk the effectiveness of Colloidal Silver in fighting sickness. The fact is, the wide knowledge of this remarkable and natural antibiotic has the potential of eroding the profits of the massive drug industry. Acceptance by the Food and Drug Administration requires at least ten years of documented research and costs over 100 million dollars. Thus, the healing wonders of Colloidal Silver remain virtually unknown to the multitudes, and is passed on from person to person.

Proponents of pharmaceuticals have attempted to debunk the use of Colloidal Silver based on a fraudulent claim that Colloidal Silver can cause Argyria, a rare condition that results in a bluish/grey tinting of the skin. What these debunkers fail to mention is that all known cases of Argyria are due to long-term exposure and systemic absorption of large amounts of silver compounds, usually in the form of silver salts. Colloidal silver is silver in its elemental form. The body does not store excess elemental silver, but rather eliminates it, as with other heavy meals. In a special report written by Dr. Alex Duarte, he notes that no cases of argyria have ever been produced by Colloidal Silver because the particles are simply too small.

GROWING HEALTH CARE CRISIS:

Over the years, the medical establishment has reported on the new strains of “Super Bugs” that cannot be destroyed by antibiotics. Newsweek Magazine reported in March 28, 1994, that in 1992, 13,000 hospital patients died of infections that resisted every drug that the doctors tried.

It is also a well known fact that the use of antibiotics have detrimental effects on the naturally occurring and necessary bacteria in the colon. Used in moderation, Colloidal Silver does not disturb this very necessary environment of healthy bacteria. If prolonged application of Colloidal Silver is required in extreme medical cases, daily consumption of Lactobacillus acidophilus or yogurt is recommended to overcome the loss of any friendly intestinal bacteria.

“MIGHTIEST GERM FIGHTERS”

Colloidal Silver is finding remarkable new uses in modern medicine . . . perhaps it will one day be recognized as “one of our mightiest germ fighters” according to Science Digest, March 1978. Silver is considered to be one of the most universal antibiotic substances known to man. Jim Powell reported in the Science Digest article quoted above, that an antibiotic kills perhaps 7 different disease organisms, but silver has been found effective in killing some 650 strains of harmful bacteria. Powell also reported that resistant strains of bacteria fail to develop from the use of Colloidal Silver. Moreover, Colloidal Silver used in moderation is totally non-toxic!

By 1978, silver was shown to kill syphilis and malaria. In an interesting demonstration, swimming pool water was contaminated with 50 gallons of raw sewage that had been flushed through silver electrodes. When the water was tested there was no living E. coli bacteria left!

FOODS DEPLETED IN NUTRITION:

Silver and all vital minerals required for good health are obtained from foods we eat. These nutrients come directly from organic soil containing living organisms. These organisms assist in making the minerals available to the vegetation and ultimately to our bodies. God, in His infinite knowledge, created the human body with the ability of defending itself against harmful bacteria. The complexity and wonder of the immune system is just now becoming understood. The fact is, any disease reveals the breakdown of the immune system. If the body has the nutrients (including silver) that it requires for good health, the immune system can recognize harmful bacteria and destroy it. However, if we eat fruit and vegetables grown on chemical fertilizers, as most plants are grown today, we do not get the necessary quantity of vitamins, minerals and trace elements which occur in organically grown foods.

To compound the problem, modern harvesting and transporting of food great distances, requires that fruits and vegetables be picked green. And to make a bad situation even worse, the foods are subjected to preservatives which are toxic to the human body. We cannot help but wonder if Jesus’ prediction of “famines and pestilences” was directed toward our modern society that is literally destroying itself through harmful farming techniques. The growth of chronic diseases in the modern world should alert us that something terribly wrong is occurring.

We are becoming an increasingly sick society because we fail to follow Biblical mandates to let the soil rest every seven years. The foods we all consume are literally destroying our immune systems. The results are chronic diseases and early aging.

In an article printed in the Denver Post on Tuesday, March 4, 2008, this startling headline attracted much attention – “Cases of Immune Diseases Take Off.” The article went on to report – “First, asthma cases shot up, along with hay fever and other common allergic reactions, such as eczema. Then pediatrician started seeing more children with food allergies. Now experts are increasingly convinced that a suspected jump in lupus, multiple sclerosis and other afflictions caused by misfiring immune systems is real.”

Some Biochemists suspect that a silver deficiency is possibly one of the main reasons cancer exists and is increasing at such a rapid rate today. Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used silver in his cancer treatment for many years. He says it has brought on rapid remission in many patients whom other doctors had given up on.

A relatively new study called “glycobiology” is also being recognized by many researchers and doctors. It has been shown that the healthy immune system consists of glyconutrients that are now missing in our modern diet. The leading research is being conducted by a nutritional supplement company based in Coppel, Texas. Mannatech offers the public a number of glyconutritional products including their patented “Ambrotose” which supports and rebuilds the cell-to-cell communication system which is so vital to the immune system.

Colloidal Silver can promote healing as it kills enemy bacteria that is constantly invading and threatening the human body. It is like receiving an artificial immune system until ours is strong enough to do the job. To sustain and rebuild the immune system, this author strongly recommends the supplementation of glyconutrients.

HOW DOES COLLOIDAL SILVER WORK?

According to medical journals from around the world, Colloidal Silver disables the particular enzyme that all one-celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. Colloidal Silver co-mingles with the blood and enters the cells to seek out and destroy harmful organisms. It suffocates them in six minutes or less, after initial contact. This phenomenon was recently demonstrated in tests at UCLA Medical Lab. Trace amounts of Colloidal Silver were shown to protect and strengthen the immune system.

Sportsmen have long used carbon water filters that consist of a silver screen filter that purifies drinking water. Colloidal Silver can also kill harmful bacteria in drinking water. A teaspoon of Colloidal Silver added per gallon of questionable water and shaken, has been shown to be safe to drink after about six minutes.

APPLICATIONS FOR COLLOIDAL SILVER:

In a special report written by Dr. Alex Duarte, he cited the following uses for Colloidal Silver:

External Infections: eye, ear, nose and throat infections, dental infections, sinus infections, poison oak, poison ivy, rashes, burns, cuts, bites, athletes foot, fungal infections (including athlete’s foot), acne, diabetic ulcers, and bed sores.

Internal Infections: common cold, allergy, Asthma, Bronchitis, Pneumonia, fevers, Herpes infections, Hepatitis, Epstein- Barr, yeast infections, vaginal infections, bladder infections, middle-ear infections, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Hemorrhoids, Influenza, intestinal troubles, Nasal Catarrh, Tuberculosis, boils, Meningitis, Chronic Eczema, Colitis, Diarrhea, Enlarged Prostate, Tonsillitis, Rhinitis, Strep Throat, Sprue, Staphylococcus Infections, ringworm, Typhoid, Whooping Cough, Shingles and Warts.

APPLICATION OF COLLOIDAL SILVER:

Liquid silver may be applied directly to the skin. A few drops on a q-tip or band-aid may be used to disinfect any wound or sore. Liquid or Colloidal Silver can also be administered orally. It can be used vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs and dropped into the eyes.

It is safe for pregnant and nursing women and is known to aid the developing fetus in growth. It will not generate free radicals or interfere with enzyme activity. It has no reaction with other medications.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that modern man needs to re-think his strategy of wellness. The medical practice of waiting until serious diseases have ravaged the body is resulting in chronic illnesses growing at epidemic rates.

Colloidal Silver: An Alternative to Antibiotics

Colloidal silver has been shown to revert cancer cells back to normal — and kill harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast and molds in as little as 4 minutes.

Colloidal silver refers to microscopic colloids of silver suspended in an aqueous solution, such as demineralized water. Colloids are technically defined as particles which remain suspended for an indefinite period of time in liquid — without dissolving, or forming an ionic solution.

Lower concentrations of colloidal silver (30 parts per million or less) are typically manufactured using an electrolysis process, whereas higher concentrations (50 ppm or more) are usually either silver compounds, or are solutions that have been bound with a protein to disperse the particles.

The therapeutic use of colloidal silver goes back hundreds of years. It has long been used as an internal medication to treat a wide variety of diseases. Before the advent of penicillin and the discovery of conventional antibiotics (methicillin, vancomycin, etc.), colloidal silver was one of the leading antimicrobial remedies available. Its use was discontinued in the 1940s due to the introduction of modern antibiotics.

Colloidal Silver a Suitable Alternative to Antibiotics

Oftentimes, antibiotics do help in causing symptoms to temporarily disappear. Yet, it is well known that antibiotics leave behind a host of resistant organisms in the human body. These resistant organisms reappear at a later date, thereby compromising the immune system.

A study conducted by Dr. Ron Leavitt of Brigham Young University (BYU) tested colloidal silver against antibiotics such as tetracyclines, fluorinated quinolones (Ofloxacin), the penicillins, the cephalosporins (Cefaperazone) and the macrolides (Erythromycin) on microbes such as streptococcuses, pneumonia, E. coli, salmonella, and shigella.

As reported by Deseret News (5/16/2000), Dr. Leavitt concluded that a quality colloidal silver may serve as a suitable antibiotic alternative. Deseret News also quotes Dr. Leavitt as saying: “The data suggests that with the low toxicity associated with colloidal silver, in general, and the broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity of this colloidal silver preparation, this preparation may be effectively used as an alternative to antibiotics.”

In the 1990s, there was a resurgence of interest in colloidal silver because it was marketed as an alternative medicine. Since then, colloidal silver has been administered in different ways for specific purposes. It has been gargled, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs, dropped into eyes or ears, and used vaginally and anally. Unconfirmed research shows the use of colloidal silver in the treatment of cancer, hepatitis C, sinusitis, acne, yeast infections, flu, gangrene, colds and other viral and bacterial infections…

Silver is a trace element that the body requires for good health. A deficiency of silver leads to a host of health problems. When silver levels are low or non-existent, for instance, cancer cells tend to proliferate. When a sufficient amount of silver is introduced, however, it safely and quickly kills the microbes inside the cancer cells, thereby causing cancer cells to revert back into normal cells!

Colloidal silver also shows promise as a possible treatment for AIDS and herpes. In full-blown AIDS, the body’s immune system is suppressed, making it susceptible to a wide variety of diseases. Colloidal silver offers a non-toxic supplement for wide spectrum immune system support.

Laboratory tests show that colloidal silver killed not only the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in a test tube or Petri dish — but also destroyed every virus, harmful bacteria, yeast and mold — in as little as 4 minutes.

However, one must never confuse in vitro results (an artificial environment, outside the living organism) with in vivo results (in a living organism, such as the human body). The reason for this is because the effects of colloidal silver diluted in a Petri dish or test tube are significantly different from the same amount of silver diluted in the 5 liters of blood that comprise the human body.

It is important to note that colloidal silver only attacks harmful bacteria and pathogens, which are anaerobic in nature — and will not harm the “friendly” aerobic bacteria (such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria), which the body needs.

Furthermore, the mechanism by which colloidal silver attacks bacteria is indirect, as follows: It disables the enzyme that the anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeast and molds require to survive, thereby suffocating them — without causing harm to human enzymes or parts of the human body chemistry. The result is the destruction of disease-causing organisms in the body, including those that have become resistant to antibiotics. There is virtually no chance of bacteria developing resistance to colloidal silver.

Negative press on colloidal silver usage

Public concern erupted when a high-profile case of argyria appeared in association with the use of colloidal silver. Argyria is an extremely rare phenomenon that occurs when silver accumulates in the tissue under the skin, causing a blue or grayish tint — which is a cosmetic problem, rather than a life-threatening one.

In December 2007, there was a highly publicized story of Paul Karason, a California man whose skin gradually turned blue after consuming gallons of colloidal silver per week — for years. To put his case in the proper perspective, the standard dosage is only 1 tablespoon per day.

To reiterate, argyria has only occurred in a small handful of cases in the long history of colloidal silver usage. It is believed by many in the alternative health field that the hype surrounding argyria is nothing more than negative propaganda used by Big Pharma to discourage the use of colloidal silver.

That’s because colloidal silver is the only ‘natural’ broad-spectrum germ-killer that can kill virtually any known virus — including AIDS, H5N1 (Avian Influenza), SARS, Anthrax — and potentially save millions of lives. Obviously, it then poses a threat to the earnings of the pharmaceutical and medical industries.

There are no known side effects to taking colloidal silver daily when one follows the manufacturer’s suggested use or a physician’s advice. Colloidal silver is sold as a dietary supplement by many health food stores and online retailers. For those who want to make their own colloidal silver, generators and electrolysis equipment are available, which enable anyone to easily disperse silver wire into microscopic colloids of silver suspended in water.

Colloidal silver can be used topically or internally. For health maintenance and protection from colds, flu and other infectious diseases, a daily dose of 1 tablespoon is recommended. For existing infectious conditions, you might want to take 1 tablespoon 3 times a day; and as the condition improves, the dosage can be tapered down to 2 tablespoons a day, and subsequently, once a day.

For burns or sores, soak a cotton ball in colloidal silver and apply it on the wound using a bandage to keep it in place. This method has also been used to treat warts.

Many women suffering from vaginal yeast infection have received immediate results from using a douche solution consisting of 1 tablespoon of colloidal silver mixed in with 8 oz. of water.

The Wonder Cure Time Forgot

Protecting your health

Unfortunately, as quickly as modern science creates antibiotics, nature responds with super-strain microbes that resist them and steal years off your life. Paradoxically, nature also provides silver, a precious solution to the problem. The colloidal form of silver is certainly “nature’s safe and effective antibiotic and disinfectant.”

Colloidal Silver can be used topically and internally on people (from infants to seniors) and even pets and may prove very helpful as an alternative to prescription drugs and antibiotics for fighting the following health problems: acne, allergies, athlete’s foot, blastocystis hominous, burns, chronic diarrhea, colds, conjunctivitis, cuts, ear infections, influenza, emphysema, eye infections, fungal infections, Giardia lamblia, head lice, hepatitis B and C, herpes, laryngitis, lyme disease, osteomyelitis, psoriasis, ringworm, rosacea, shingles, sinus infections, skin infections, sores, throat infections, ulcerative colitis, urinary infections, warts, wounds, yeast infections (candida albicans), and more!

Some Silver History

Silver has been used as a remedy for centuries. Greek and Roman societies stored liquids in silver-lined containers to keep them fresh. American settlers traveling west would put a silver dollar in milk to delay its spoilage. Native American Indians added powdered silver to a newborn’s first bath as protection against a harsh and stressful world. In 1834, the German obstetrician F. Crede administered silver nitrate to the eyes of newborn infants, virtually eliminating the incidence of disease which caused blindness. In the late 1800′s Western scientists were able to prove what had been known in Eastern medicine for literally thousands of years . . . that silver was a proven germ fighter! By the early 1900′s the antibacterial colloidal silver became the choice of medical practitioners. It proved to be enormously effective against infectious organisms and extremely safe to use, without the negative side-effects associated with drugs. The use of silver as a medicine was widespread until World War II when antibiotics became the standard treatment for infections.

Silver Is Essential to Life!

The human body contains about .001% silver. We obtain silver and all minerals in the body through the food we eat. There are billions of living organisms in a handful of soil, which break down the minerals so they can be assimilated into the plant. when we eat the plant, these minerals (now in an ionic form) are absorbed into the bloodstream and carried to various organs to be utilised. This is how nature intended us to get our minerals. Long ago, kings and queens were called ‘blue bloods’ because of the silver content of their blood and the blueness of their skin. Royalty used silver plates, bowls and utensils almost exclusively when eating. Over a long period of time, they ingested large particles of silver that caused a permanent discoloration of the skin due to silver compound deposits. This condition is known today as argyria. There is no danger of argyria happening today if using pure silver (99.999%) in manufacturing is colloid.

Minerals in the soil control metabolism of cells in man, plants and animals. Soil has become so depleted, trace minerals are not available for adequate nourishment. Silver is a trace mineral that has literally disappeared from the soil. If we cannot get the quality of nutrients from the food we eat, deficiencies develop.

Just What is Colloidal Silver?

Modern Colloidal Silver is a powerful, natural antibiotic, antiseptic, and antimicrobial solution. Various forms of silver have been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of health problems. Colloidal Silver has no known negative side effects. It provides the catalyst which disables the enzyme that all one-celled invaders use for their oxygen metabolism. In effect, Colloidal Silver ‘strangles’ over 650 disease-creating bacteria, fungi (including yeasts), viruses, and parasites by cutting off their oxygen supply. Because these micro-organisms are suffocated, rather than poisoned, resistant strains fail to develop (the germs cannot mutate and develop), keeping your body protected and healthy throughout the years. Yet Colloidal Silver is of no harm to human enzymes or any part of the human body chemistry. It kills all disease-causing organisms, in six minutes or less, upon contact – even those that are pleomorphic. The body does not develop a tolerance to Colloidal Silver and sufficient amounts of this substance in your body is equivalent to a superior second immune system!

In Colloidal Silver, small clusters of silver atoms are electronically suspended in deionized, distilled water (see the definition of a colloid below). Many modern uses for silver as an antimicrobial agent exist. NASA uses a silver system to purify water on space shuttle missions. As an algaecide in swimming pools, silver is excellent because low concentrations (only two parts per million) are needed and it does not irritate a swimmer’s eyes. Silver salts are used to treat burn victims so that infection can be avoided. In fact, silver is used in all major burn centers throughout the United States. Some cosmetic companies are using silver as a preservative in products because of its non-toxicity. UCLA medical labs found it effective on every virus they tested it on. Colloidal Silver exceeds the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recognized standards.

What is a Colloid?

The dictionary definition of a colloid is “a substance that – is in a state of division preventing passage through a semi-permeable membrane – consists of particles too small for resolution with an ordinary light microscope, and in suspension or solution, fails to settle out and diffracts a beam of light.” Okay, so what does that mean? Basically, a true colloid of silver will stay suspended in a solution of water and not fall to the bottom or clump together. Therefore, the colloid of silver is small enough to be effectively used by the body to destroy invading bacteria and other microbes. A typical colloidal silver particle is a microscopic 0.001 microns. Clinical observations have determined that the smaller the particle, the more antiseptic effect it has. Particle sizes of 0.001 microns and smaller are a necessary factor in choosing a quality Colloidal Silver product that is going to work.

Colloidal Silver Usage

Liquid Colloidal Silver can normally be found in dark brown glass bottles that contain two to four fluid ounces. The bottles will either have a pump sprayer or eyedropper for applying the doses. At times of need, the solution should be taken one or two times per day, with one or two dropperfuls at each dose. Colloidal Silver is completely odorless and the more potent formulas are a dark yellow color. It tastes just like distilled water and can be ingested or applied to the skin, in the eyes, nose, or ears, or any other body part that requires treatment. It is the perfect solution for use a small on  children and since it tastes just like water, getting fussy kids to take it is quite simple. It is very safe for pregnant and nursing women to use and is known to aid the developing fetus in growth. It will not generate free radicals that damage cells or interfere with enzyme activity. It has no reactions with other medications.

The Pharmaceutical Movement

People often ask, ‘if this stuff is so terrific, why haven’t I heard about it before?’ Much of the colloidal research was set aside due to the introduction of penicillin and other fast working, less costly and more profitable pharmaceuticals. Actually, using the allopathic, medical approach to treating infectious disease is relatively new but is already in serious trouble because of changing pathogenic microbes, Often nasty side effects accompany the use of drugs and medications do not treat the cause of disease. For literally thousands of years people have used food, herbs, fasting, colon cleansing and other natural methods to strengthen the immune system to keep themselves healthy and to prevent disease. Today there is a tremendous resurgence of this information and practice.

Conclusion

Colloidal Silver is truly an all-natural alternative to prescription antibiotics and may just be the answer to any of a number of health conditions that you or someone you know may be suffering from. It is non-toxic, safe, effective, without negative side-effects and can be used by anyone – young and old alike. Colloidal Silver is one of the best options available for strengthening the body’s immune system and helping to eliminate infectious diseases of all types.

Colloidal Silver Research Paper The Chemical and Physical Basis of the Therapeutic value of colloidal forms of Silver

John Marshall Dudley, a great researcher

Abstract:

Silver in its various forms has had a long history of reported therapeutic value. Recently, through the work of Dr. Bob Beck and other researchers, it has become popular, both alone, as well as part of a 4 part protocol advocated by Dr. Bob Beck claiming cures for an almost astounding number of ailments from the cold and flu to lupus, aids and cancer.

However, a search of literature has revealed that there is no consensus on how it works, or even what it does. Most discussions appear to be pure theories or speculation with little or no supporting scientific evidence.

Silver colloids are analyzed from a nuclear, chemical, catalytic, and physics perspective to determine what the expected action is on various pathogens as well as its effect, if any, on so called good bacteria.

The result is that what is being generally reported by many people and researchers is exactly what is to be expected. This is important, since winning the approval of medical professionals, and even that of many patients requires that they understand just what a new therapy does and does not do, and how it works.

Text:

Silver has been reported to have therapeutic value throughout the ages. It has been reported that one reason the upper class did not succumb to many of the plagues which almost wiped out many villages was because they ate with silver utensils, off silver plates and drank from silver goblets. Churches did, and still do, use cups made of silver for communion, where one goblet is passed from person to person. Earlier this century people put silver dollars in their milk and wells to ward off spoilage and illness (4). The knowledge of the miraculous healing powers of silver were so well known that legends of werewolves required silver to kill the lychantrophy, and supposedly, evil witches cowered at the power of silver to eliminate evil.

Even more recently, many researchers such as Bob Beck have reported that silver in a colloidal state eliminates virtually all known pathogens, viruses, fungi, bacteria, protozoa, and yeasts. Yet, it appears that there is no effect on the good bacteria in the intestinal tract, either because it does not attack good bacteria, or it is absorbed into the blood stream before reaching the intestinal tract.

Silver is referred to as a transition metal in chemical literature, along with copper and gold. They are metals that are heavier than the life giving light metals, such as sodium, calcium, and potassium, yet lighter than the toxic heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and mercury. Gold and silver are considered noble metals because they tend to not react easily to form compounds.

The transition metals are known for their catalytic properties. Although ionic silver (such as any silver compound dissolved in water) has very little if any catalytic effect, and macroscopic silver has little effect either. However, very finely powdered silver becomes a very good oxidizing catalyst. Starting with atomic or ionic silver, the catalytic effect increases with particle size until it reaches a peak at some value, then drops off to a much lower level when the particles approach the wavelength of light.

This is easy to explain by examining how a catalyst works. Each positively charged silver atom will attract one negatively charged atom or molecule. Once they touch, the charge is neutralized. If you have more than one positively charged atom of silver in a particle, then each can attract a negatively charged atom or particle. If a clump of silver atoms binds with two negatively charged particles, such as oxygen and something else, these two particles will no longer electrostatically repel each other, but will be brought together and will react, oxidizing the particle.

The larger the particle, the more positively charged silver atoms can attract oxygen and other negatively charged particles to the surface. However, if particle size becomes too large, then the amount of silver hidden in the center of the particle means that the increase in mass, which goes up with the cube of the diameter, is increasing faster than the active surface areas, which goes up at the square of the diameter. The catalytic effect thus peaks at some particle size and decreases with respect to the amount of silver if the size is increased further.

Bacteria come in two forms – anaerobic and aerobic. Earlier this century it was discovered by Dr. Gram that he could stain bacteria with a specially prepared Gram stain, and that in general good bacteria stained, but pathogenic bacteria did not stain. It was later discovered that the pathogenic bacteria are negatively charged. Pathogenic bacteria are anaerobic, and if oxidized will die. Thus, to prevent oxidization, they carry an enzyme to specifically repel negatively charged oxygen. If this enzyme is disabled so that they lose this negatively charge, or if oxygen is supplied in a form such that it is reactive to negatively charged pathogens, such as ozone water or hydrogen peroxide, the bacteria will be oxidized and the reaction is ultimately lethal to the pathogen.

It thus follows that negatively charged bacteria, and negatively charged oxygen will both be attracted to and will bind with silver particles. Since the negative charge is neutralized through an electron transfer with the particle of silver, each can now easily combine with the other, and will do so, oxidizing the pathogen and destroying it.

Specifically it has been determined that with anaerobic bacteria and viruses oxygen reacts with the sulfhydryl (-S-H) groups surrounding the surface and removes the hydrogen (converting it to water) so that the sulfur atoms form an -R-S-S-R bond. This interferes with the organism’s transport or membrane proteins and deactivates them.(5)

Not only will it result in the catalytic oxidation of the bacteria or other pathogens, but since almost all pathogens are negatively charged and the silver is positively charged, the silver and pathogen are attracted to each other via a static attraction causing interactions much faster and at much larger distances than would be expected by pure chance of collision.

However “good” bacteria, those that breath oxygen, do not carry a negative charge. This enables the good bacteria to attract oxygen which they require to breathe. One would expect that aerobic bacteria would not be killed by silver. However testing done at University of Tennessee under our directions has shown that colloidal silver is also quite effective in killing aerobic bacteria. The method by which the aerobic bacteria are killed is still under investigation.

It has been previously thought that the reason that colloidal silver does not affect the good bacteria in the intestions was because it did not kill good bacteria. We have proven this to be false. Further investigation indicates that colloidal silver is unable to move around and interact with bacteria when in a gel or solid matrix. This in conjunction with the fact that most if not all of the silver, when particle size is correct, will get absorbed through the stomach lining and into the blood stream, most likely accounts for the lack killing the good bacteria in the intestions.

It should be clear now why silver colloids are extremely effective at destroying pathogenic bacteria, yet do not affect good bacteria in the intestions or mammal cells. Yet the reports on the effectiveness of silver colloids, when compared with normal antibiotics, still seem to call into question why silver is so much more effective, often effecting a cure in hours, when powerful antibiotics may take days or weeks.

There are a number of reasons why silver seems to have much more effectiveness than normal antibiotics. Here are a number of them:

1. Colloidal silver is positively charged; most antibiotics do not carry a strong positive charge. This causes silver to virtually seek out and destroy pathogens, instead of simply having to move around until they happen to bump into each other. This effect is quite appropriately referred to as the “Silver Bullet” effect by Dr. Beck.

2. Silver kills immediately by oxidizing the pathogen. Antibiotics do not affect viruses at all, and for bacteria will only kill the bacteria when it tries to divide (penicillin type antibiotics) or will prevent the pathogen from dividing (tetracycline type antibiotics). In the first case, it may take the bacteria several days before it attempts to divide; and in the second case the bacteria is not killed at all, but just prevented from replicating. In both cases, the immune system must take care of most or all of the pathogens. With silver, they are killed outright immediately.

3. Silver is a catalyst. Thus, as soon as a particle of silver has oxidized a pathogen, the pathogen loses it’s negative charge and floats away, and the silver is free to attack another pathogen. Antibiotics usually bind with the pathogen and for each pathogen destroyed, one particle or molecule of the antibiotic is used up.

The result is that silver will usually give a much faster kill than an antibiotic. The down side of this is that the high and rapid kill rate can result in Herxheimer’s reaction or healing crisis (1). The body simply does not have time to eliminate the huge amount of toxins and dead pathogens that can result from silver water. Other therapies which work along similar lines such as ozonated water are reported to the same problem. It is highly recommended to never initially give therapeutic dosages of colloidal silver to a severely ill person, but to give small amounts initially and work up to therapeutic dosages in a couple of days. This allows the kill rate to be maintained where the body can eliminate the dead pathogens and toxins without undue stress. Of course, drinking large amounts of liquids can help flush the toxins and should be encouraged.

Other Possible negative effects.

As most people know, silver is used as the photo-sensitive ingredient in almost all photographic processes. Silver compounds, when exposed to light, will often result in the silver being reduced to atomic or metallic silver. Then in the presence of a developer, any silver compounds that contact the silver particles will also undergo a reduction reaction, enlarging the silver particle.

While this process is essential to photography, it is undesirable in the skin of a person. It is thought by many that the reason that the royalty long ago were called blue bloods is because the silver from the goblets and wares would react with acids in their drinks and foods, then precipitate out in their skin giving them a bluish color. It is known that consumption of silver compounds, such as silver nitrate, followed by exposure to sunlight can result in a graying or bluing of the skin, a medical condition called argyria (2). As it turns out, a number of chemicals that can appear in the blood make quite effective developers. Caffeine and tannin are just two of them (3).

Fortunately, colloidal silver, when made by the electrolytic process in pure distilled water without any salts being added, produces no silver compounds. Thus, silver plating out of colloidal silver is not possible; the silver particles are already reduced to pure silver, and are mutually repulsed, because of their positive charges.

Never use colloidal silver salts; it is seriously not good for you

However, if the colloidal silver is made from silver salts by reduction chemistry,traces of silver salts can remain. Although silver metal is non-toxic to mammals, silver salts are poisonous because of the associated cations, and can result in argyria (2). Also, when colloidal silver is made by the electrolytic process and salt or sea salt is added, silver salts will be produced as well. Although, in an emergency, one would be wise to make one’s own silver water using techniques previously given by Dr. Beck, for long term use all exposure to silver salts should be avoided.

The use of table salt (sodium chloride) will produce some Silver chloride. This is undesirable, and although the amount of silver chloride is limited by it solubility in cold water to 0.89 PPM (6), this is still a significant amount of silver compound comapared with the amount in the colloid itself (5 to 10 PPM).

The use of sea salt which many people recommend is especially disturbing. Sea salt contains many compounds, including various nitrates and fluoride. Many of the compounds can combine with silver to produce silver compounds. Specifically silver can combine with nitrates forming a highly soluble and toxic silver nitrate salt and with fluoride producing highly soluble and toxic silver fluoride. Nitrates in sea salt can run as high as 20 ppm, and fluorides are typically 40 ppm (7). Therefore colloidal silver should be only made with pure distilled water to prevent the formation of any toxic silver compounds. If one must use an accelerating agent, then adding a small amount of previously produced colloidal silver is recommended, over adding any type of salt.

Effectiveness verses particle size.

Several publications indicate that for absorption through the stomach wall, particles must be .015 micron (15 nm) or smaller.

Traditionally particle size has been determined by electron microscopy. This technique is quite slow and tedious, resulting in a procedure which is both slow and inaccurate.

The absorption band of silver colloids increases in wavelength as the size of the particles increase. This allows a qualitative measurement on the particle sizes in a colloid by use of a scanning photospectrometer. Ionic silver has an absorption band in the uv, and thus is virtually clear. As more atoms aggregate into a particle, the absorption band moves from the uv into the violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Since the color of a substance is the complement of the color absorbed colloidal silver will go from clear to very light yellow, gold, orange, red, blue and green. (Colloidal Chemistry pages 65 and 68*). Colloids that contain a broad range of sizes can absorb wavelengths across the spectrum resulting in brown and black. These will be of the lowest possible quality. It is generally accepted that only clear to light gold silver colloids have particle sizes small enough to be effective, and to be able to reach the blood stream.

Why Is The FDA Working To Keep This Vital Life-Saving Knowledge A Secret From You?

Incredibly, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has now ruled that you cannot be told about the amazing and potentially life-saving, infection-fighting properties of colloidal silver. Yet, since its discovery over 90 years ago, colloidal silver has saved more lives from deadly infections than any other natural substance in existence. Hundreds of studies conducted over the past 90 years at top medical universities in both Europe and America have confirmed the phenomenal infection-fighting powers of this safe, proven all-natural antibiotic substance. In fact, at Syracuse Medical University it was demonstrated by Dr. Robert 0. Becker, M.D. and his colleagues that colloidal silver ions can kill many of the deadly infectious microorganisms that no longer respond to prescription antibiotic drugs! And in laboratory tests colloidal silver has been demonstrated to kill over 650 different disease-causing pathogens — amazingly, most of them die within six minutes of direct contact! FDA Acts to Restrict Information About Colloidal Silver’s Powerful Infection Fighting Properties! Yet the heavy-handed goons at the FDA don’t want you to ever discover this vital and potentially life-saving information about colloidal silver. In fact, late last year they passed a brand new “Final Ruling” that effectively restricts the American public from learning the full truth about the powerful infection-fighting properties of colloidal silver!

Say boodbye to freedom of speech!

The new FDA ruling places severe restrictions on what can be said about colloidal silver in advertising and labeling. In fact, in spite of its medically documented 90-year history of safe and effective use, the FDA has now ruled that colloidal silver can no longer be sold in the United States if it is described as an infection fighting agent! Instead, it can now only be described as a “mineral supplement.” If it is described as anything else in the advertising and labeling, the FDA can shut down the offending company and confiscate its inventory! In essence, the FDA has ruled that the American public no longer has the right to know what a powerful and medically proven infection fighting agent colloidal silver is! (But as you’ll see, we’re going head-to-head with the FDA in order to bring to you the comprehensive and potentially life-saving knowledge they’ve been working so feverishly to keep secret from you. In fact, we’ve arranged for you to receive a significant 50% discount on a comprehensive new manual that will not only teach you how to use colloidal silver to protect yourself and your family against serious, life-threatening pathogens, but will also teach you how to make your own safe, pure, therapeutic-quality colloidal silver in just minutes, for only pennies per batch! More on that in just a moment…)

How Could Such a Thing Happen In America?

Over the past decade thousands of Americans have quietly abandoned the use of prescription antibiotic drugs and have turned instead to the use of safe, natural colloidal silver. In fact, when people discovered they could cure the vast majority of their own infections — quickly, safely and effectively — with a few dollar’s worth of colloidal silver, word began to spread rapidly among the American public. The giant pharmaceutical companies quickly realized they would soon be losing tens of millions of dollars annually in sales of their expensive prescription antibiotic drugs if they didn’t do something about it. Initially, they demanded that the FDA ban the sale of colloidal silver altogether. But try as they might, the FDA couldn’t find sufficient grounds for a ban. After all, colloidal silver has a fully documented 90-year medical history of safety and effectiveness! Not to be stopped, the big drug firms rapidly switched gears: they began pressuring the FDA to restrict the public’s access to information about colloidal silver. They simply didn’t want any more people to learn how powerful and effective colloidal silver really is against infectious microorganisms and the deadly diseases they can cause. And in a move that has stunned the medical community, the FDA promptly bowed to the wishes of the global pharmaceutical giants, placing into law the infamous new “Final Ruling” on colloidal silver in July 19, 1999.

How could this happen in America today?

Unfortunately, it has become abundantly clear that the FDA is now little more than the enforcement arm of the major drug companies! Literally billions of dollars in profits are pocketed annually by these pharmaceutical giants thanks to the monopoly they hold on the sale of expensive prescription antibiotic drugs. And colloidal silver is considered to be the biggest threat to that multi-billion dollar annual monopoly on prescription antibiotics. Of course, anything that threatens those kinds of profits — and promises to put the power to heal serious infections back into the hands of average Americans — must be regulated into oblivion. And the FDA’s perverse “medical gestapo” has now attempted to do just! We Simply Can’t Let the FDA Get Away With This Any Longer! By restricting the American public’s access to information about colloidal silver at the point of sale the FDA is effectively pronouncing a death sentence. on thousands, perhaps even millions of Americans over time who will die of infectious illness because they did not know about the powerful life-saving, infection-fighting properties of this safe, natural substance. It is well known that many of today’s prescription antibiotic drugs are simply no longer effective against pathogenic microorganisms and the deadly infections they can cause.

Please don’t confuse the public with facts!

Even the major news media have documented the fact that infectious microorganisms are growing more and more resistant to modem antibiotic drugs. Some pathogens are now even resistant to vancomycin, long considered by doctors to be the antibiotic drug of last resort. And the numbers of these drug-resistant pathogens arc growing higher and higher every year, killing more and more Americans — particularly the elderly and the very young who are the least able to withstand the onslaught of infectious disease! Yet laboratory tests have demonstrated that a few cents worth of colloidal silver can kill hundreds of infectious microorganisms — including many of the antibiotic resistant super pathogens — dead in their tracks! And, because colloidal silver is not a poison like modern antibiotics, the deadly microorganisms cannot grow resistant to it. Instead, science tells us that colloidal silver is a safe, natural substance that attaches itself to an enzyme receptor site on the outer shell of pathogenic microorganisms in the human body, and kills them by preventing them from “respiring.” In essence, colloidal silver smothers the deadly little critters! We cannot let the global pharmaceutical conglomerates and their cronies in the FDA restrict this vital and potentially life-saving information from the American public any longer — particularly at this crucial point in time when America is faced with an unprecedented infectious disease crisis that is growing rapidly out of control. eColi, salmonella and MRSA is now rampant in our food supply.

Colloidal Silver Has Mainstream Medicine Singing the Blues While Loosing the Green

The recent widespread mainstream media coverage of the “blue man” Paul Karason and his rare skin condition known as Argyria is the latest in a series of largely misleading and sensationalized scare stories about the dangers of colloidal silver turning a person´ skin blue.

Although this latest story did not appear to originate from mainstream medicine or the FDA, there is little doubt that they have welcomed it with open arms and have been quick to trot out “medical experts” and past FDA warnings to help “sing the blues” about colloidal silver. The truth is that mainstream medicine has a very good reason to cry long and loud about colloidal silver, because it does represent a very real danger – a danger to the huge profits of the pharmaceutical industry´s patented antibiotics.

The truth is that silver has been used effectively by mankind to fight germs and ailments for thousands of years, and the instances of modern use of colloidal silver turning people´s skin blue are so rare as to be almost non-existent – and thousands of prescribed and approved over the counter mainstream medications including the common aspirin, silver has never killed anyone. As a matter of fact, almost all of the relative handful of reported instances have involved one or more of the following: older silver products that contained as much as 10% or more silver (compared to mere parts per million in modern colloidal silver), silver nitrate, home made colloidal silver that was contaminated with salt, and silver that has been consumed continuously in very large quantities over a very long period of time.

You gotta seriously abuse colloidal silver to get Argyria

In the case of Karason, he made his own ionic silver at home for almost two decades and for many years consumed a quart or more per day. I daresay that any prescribed or over the counter medication whose recommended dosage was a couple of teaspoons a day would do far worse than turn a person blue if they drank a quart or more of it a year! For the sake of comparison, drinking a quart or more per day of colloidal silver would be like a person taking several bottles of aspirin a day, a practice that would be lethal in short order. Karason actually appears to enjoy his notoriety as the Papa Smurff blue man, and even though he sings the praises of how colloidal silver saved his life and the many ailments he believes it cured, the focus of attention is on his blue skin – a condition that is actually reversible with proper diet and herbal cleanses despite mainstream claims to the contrary.

What is also true about colloidal silver is that it is far safer, more effective and less expensive than the marginally effective and side effect laden mainstream antibiotics – and has mainstream and university studies proving it which date back to the early 1900′s. The best and strongest of the FDA approved antibiotics are effective for a handful of bacteria at best, whereas colloidal silver is supremely effective against just about every kind of single celled pathogen, including bacteria, fungal growths and viruses (which antibiotics are often wrongly prescribed for, despite the fact that antibiotics have no effect on viruses).

If the public were told the truth, a rarity when it comes to mainstream drugs versus natural competition, colloidal silver would represent a huge threat to literally billions of dollars of profits and so it is no wonder that mainstream medicine and their allies in the mainstream media are once again loudly singing the blues – just as they have repeatedly done in the past with misleading stories and studies about a great many popular natural plants, supplements, vitamins and minerals that represent threats to mainstream drug profits because they are safer, more effective and less expensive alternatives to the unnatural, side effect laden, hugely expensive and marginally effective synthetics created in the labs of the powerful world pharmaceutical empire.

While there are a great many natural threats to mainstream profits, whose use and track recordsof safety and effectiveness date back hundreds and even thousands of years, perhaps no natural alternative to mainstream drugs represents as big of a threat to industry profits as colloidal silver, and it is no coincidence that colloidal silver has been placed at the very top of the FDA/mainstream medicine hit list.

However, when it comes to warning and scaring people away from silver, both the mainstream medical industry and the FDA have serious credibility problems. First of all, silver has a history of safe and effective use dating back thousands of years. In addition, it continues to be widely used today, including being used by NASA, the US military and Potters for Peace for water purification, being used as a germicidal agent by hospitals and medical suppliers and recently was incorporated into a new line of hospital pajamas to prevent the spread of infection, to name just a few of it’s present day uses.

The biggest credibility problem of all for mainstream medicine and the FDA regarding silver is likely how they both approved and embraced silver for medicinal use at one time. yet now would have us believe that silver is both ineffective and dangerous. At one time silver products were very much in favor with both mainstream medicine and the FDA. No fewer than 34 different prescribed and over-the-counter medications containing silver were not only widely sold by industry, they were also approved by the very same FDA which now seeks to warn us of its dangers and have us believe it is ineffective.

FDA approves, then rebukes!

What changed their minds? Perhaps the obvious answer can be found in the fact that silver fell out of favor at the very same time that patented sulfa drugs and patented antibiotics created in drug company labs came on the market. Once that happened, the non-patentable silver was no longer a tool for healing, but a threat to profits.

Zealous protection of mainstream approved drugs and suppression of natural competition is nothing new – look at the estimated 100,000 or more deaths caused by Vioxx before the FDA finally removed it from the market. Look at the ridiculous actions of the FDA when it threatened Washington cherry growers for telling the truth about the health benefits of eating cherries, or at the storm trooper actions against the makers of Charantia (bitter melon) tea in Florida who dared put references to some of the 650 plus PubMed studies and citations about bitter melon on their website.

The FDA persecutions and prosecutions of cherry farmers, bitter melon, and a long line of other natural alternatives points out just how extreme the protection of the big drug companies products and profits really is. Consider this: other than issues of national security, only in natural health is it a crime to tell the truth due to the way the FDA has construed their rules and definitions to protect industry. For example, if a company were to advertise that vitamin C was a cure for scurvy, as everyone knows is true, that company could be prosecuted for selling unapproved drugs. The same would be true if a company printed a testimonial from someone who reported health benefits due to vitamin C, or any other vitamin, mineral, supplement or non FDA approved drug.

For example, only the makers of FDA approved drugs can use the word cure, or even imply and health benefits without the FDA considering the product a drug. The catch is that in order to be FDA approved, no matter how many PubMed cited studies or other studies have been performed, and no matter how much of a history of hundreds or thousands of years and users, the FDA only approves drugs that go through its specific approval process – one that costs hundreds of billions of dollars.

When it comes to natural alternatives, spending such money on a natural product is prohibitive, since it could not be patented and could be freely and cheaply sold by any number of competitors and it would be virtually impossible to ever recover all the costs of getting the natural product approved. Though the process is purported to be one which protects the public from unsafe medicines (and we see how well that worked for hall of shame list of drugs like Vioxx, Avandia, etc.), the net effect of the FDA´s drug definitions and approval process is to exclude natural competition and insure that only the patentable and profitable synthetics created in drug company labs can be approved and marketed as having health benefits.
