the FDA’s Own Self-Assessment; We Have Failed to Protect the American People

This article is a direct quote from the FDA’s own website

 

FDA Mission Statement

“The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological 

products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation. The FDA is also responsible for advancing the public health by helping to speed innovations that make medicines and foods more effective, safer, and more affordable; and helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to improve their health.”

In November, 2007, the FDA came to these SHOCKING CONCLUSIONS ABOUT THEMSELVES

The Subcommittee concluded that science at the FDA is in a precarious position: the Agency suffers from serious scientific deficiencies and is not positioned to meet current or emerging regulatory responsibilities.

The Subcommittee found that the deficiency has two sources:

The demands on the FDA have soared due to the extraordinary advance of scientific discoveries, the complexity of the new products and claims submitted to FDA for pre-market review and approval, the emergence of challenging safety problems, and the globalization of the industries that FDA regulates.

The resources have not increased in proportion to the demands

The result is that the scientific demands on the Agency far exceed its capacity to respond. This imbalance is imposing a significant risk to the integrity of the food, drug, cosmetic and device regulatory system, and hence the safety of the public.

The Subcommittee further noted that

The impact of the deficiency is profound precisely because science is at the heart of everything FDA does.

  1. The Agency will flounder and ultimately fail without a strong scientific foundation. That foundation rests on three pillars.
  2. The first pillar is strong selective scientific research programs that are appropriately mission-supportive, in all areas of FDA responsibility.
  3. This research is critical because it is not conducted by other public or private entities, but is fundamental to the discharge of FDA’s statutory responsibilities to protect and promote the public health. The second pillar is excellent staff with cutting-edge scientific expertise appropriate to the mission.

So, what did the FDA conclude relative to their responsibility to the American people?

Major Findings
The Subcommittee found substantial weaknesses across the Agency, with the possible exception of some drug and medical device review functions funded by industry user fees. There are several areas of greatest concern, however, which form the basis for this report’s most significant findings.

 The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific base has eroded and its scientific organizational structure is weak.

The nation’s food supply is at risk

Crisis management in FDA’s two food safety centers, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) and Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), has drawn attention and resources away from FDA’s ability to develop the science base and infrastructure needed to efficiently support innovation in the food industry, provide effective routine surveillance, and conduct emergency outbreak investigation activities to protect the food supply.

FDA’s inability to keep up with scientific advances means that American lives are at risk. While the world of drug discovery and development has undergone revolutionary change — shifting from cellular to molecular and gene-based approaches — FDA’s evaluation methods have remained largely unchanged over the last half century. Likewise, evaluation methods have not kept pace with major advances in medical devices and use of products in combination.

The world looks to FDA as a leader — to integrate emerging understandings of biology with medicine, technology and computational mathematics in ways that will lead to successful disease therapies. Today, not only can the Agency not lead, it cannot even keep up with the advances in science.

In the FDA’s own words

  1. The FDA cannot adequately monitor development of food and medical products because it is unable to keep up with scientific advances.

  2. The FDA cannot fulfill its surveillance mission because of inadequate staff and IT resources to implement cutting-edge approaches to modeling, risk assessment and data analysis

  3. The FDA lacks a coherent scientific structure and vision as a result of weak organizational infrastructure

  4. Consistent and rigorous peer reviews of programs and processes, which are currently lacking, are critical for wise utilization of resources and for rebuilding the Agency’s ability to implement its science-based regulatory responsibilities effectively.

  5. The turnover rate in FDA science staff in key scientific areas is twice that of other government agencies

  6. There are insufficient programs of measurement to determine worker performance

  7. There is insufficient investment in professional development, which means that the workforce does not keep up with scientific advances

  8. the FDA does not have sufficiently extensive collaboration with external scientists, thus limiting infusion of new knowledge and missing opportunities to leverage resources

“The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific workforce does not have sufficient capacity and capability.”

“FDA’s failure to retain and motivate its workforce puts FDA’s mission at risk. Inadequately trained scientists are generally risk-averse, and tend to give no decision, a slow decision or, even worse, the wrong decision on regulatory approval or disapproval. During our encounters with staff and center leadership, we were struck by the near unanimity that the shortage of science staff (due to lack of resources to hire) and the inability to recruit and retain needed expertise are serious, longstanding challenges. Internal expertise and experience to provide the science capability and capacity needed in highly specialized and fast-evolving areas is disturbingly limited. The lack of a trained workforce means that the FDA is ineffective in responding to emerging fields that require individuals and work teams with multidisciplinary skills built on very complex, highly specialized, often esoteric bodies of knowledge.”


This is the first in a series of articles exposing the FDA’s own self-assessment on how they are doing against the charter imposed by our US Congress to protect us. The FDA’s conclusions will totally shock you!  Stay tuned……

Stoney Brook Scientist Draws Possible Connection Between Morgellons Disease And GMOs – Audio

Agrobacterium May be the Morgellons Culprit

For about two years now, Food Nation Radio Network has been covering the issues that affect our food supply. During the course of our research, investigations and interviews for the show, we came across a particularly disturbing piece of information in the genetically modified food puzzle. It’s the possible relationship between agrobacterium, genetic engineering and Morgellons Disease.

Agrobacterium is a bacteria that causes tumors in plants through a transfer of DNA. It is used for genetic engineering of corn, soybeans, canola, sugar beets, alfalfa and other foodstuffs. Some studies have shown agrobacterium can also affect the DNA of humans.

A study done on Morgellons Disease patients by Vitaly Citovsky, a professor of molecular and cell biology at Stony Brook University in New York (SUNY) found all patients tested positive for the presence of agrobacterium, while the healthy control patients did not. Morgellons is a disease one would think would be in a science fiction novel. It is characterized by lesions on patients and fibers containing minerals growing underneath the skin. For many years, nearly the entire medical community (including the CDC) maintained it was a psychiatric condition, with patients causing their own lesions and other symptoms. As of January, 2012 the CDC appears to maintain that stance, although researchers and respected scientists in Oklahoma, New York, Toronto and other parts of the world are taking this possible epidemic seriously.

Some notable individuals claim to suffer from Morgellons, including musician, Joni Mitchell, who has used NutraSilver for Morgellons, and former baseball player Billy Koch. It is possible this is an infectious disease, due to the presence of it in entire families and it is found more among nurses and teachers who come into contact with a number of people on a daily basis. Morgellons is reported more in California, Florida and Texas than anywhere else, although it is found throughout the world.

Here is our recent interview with accomplished genetic researcher, Professor Joe Cummins, Professor Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario on the possible Morgellons Disease/GMO connection FNRN Highlight – Prof Joe Cummins on Morgellons .

Colloidal Silver Safety & Research

The EPA’s I.R.I.S. on Silver states:

“The critical effect in humans ingesting silver is argyria, a medically benign but permanent bluish-gray discoloration of the skin. Argyria results from the deposition of silver in the dermis and also from silver-induced production of melanin. Although silver has been shown to be uniformly deposited in exposed and unexposed areas, the increased pigmentation becomes more pronounced in areas exposed to sunlight due to photo-activated reduction of the metal. Although the deposition of silver is permanent, it is not associated with any adverse health effects. No pathological changes or inflammatory reactions have been shown to result from silver deposition.”

Important Nano-Silver Background You Need to Know

  • There is far too much MIS-information about Colloidal Silver
  • Silver is a NOBEL METAL LIKE GOLD
  • Humans, arguably have been using silver for over 4,000 years.
  • Try to find even one documented death from ingesting real colloidal silver. Good luck.

According to Larry C. Ford, M.D., at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, 1988:

“There is no known disease-causing organism that can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of simple metallic silver,” 

“Colloidal silver appears to be safe for children and pregnant and nursing women. It is tasteless, odorless, contains no free radicals, is harmless to human enzymes and has no adverse reactions with medications.”

Kurt Grange, Ph.D., N.D., is a nutritional bio-physiologist and author:

“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses. More importantly—unlike conventional antibiotics—infectious agents, cannot build a resistance to silver.”

“Taken internally, it may improve digestion, help prevent colds, flu and all organism-caused diseases. It can be used as a douche, atomized, nebulized or inhaled. Applied externally, it has been shown to help with things such as skin abrasions and burns (including sun burn). It can also be dropped into the eyes and ears to help the body overcome infection.

The Environmental Protection Agency Published Their Conclusions on Colloidal Silver:

“Argyria has been described in syphilitic patients in poor health who were therapeutically dosed with a total of about 1 g of silver in the form of silver arsphenamine together with other toxic metals. There have been no reports of argyria or other toxic effects resulting from the exposure of healthy persons to silver.”

“Although the deposition of silver is permanent, it is not associated with any adverse health effects. No pathological changes or inflammatory reactions have been shown to result from silver deposition. Silver compounds have been employed for medical uses for centuries. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, silver amphetamine was used in the treatment of syphilis; more recently it has been used as an astringent in topical preparations. While argyria occurred more commonly before the development of antibiotics, it is now a rare occurrence.”

“Taking one ounce of colloidal silver daily, according to EPA guidelines, is well below the critical daily intake for the development of argyria.”

Nano-silver; the EPA Has Safely Regulated Nano-silver for Decades

(Nanowerk News) The Silver Nanotechnology Working Group SNWG), an industry effort intended to foster the collection of data on silver and nanotechnology in order to advance the science and public understanding of the beneficial uses of silver nanoparticles in a wide-range of consumer and industrial products, made a detailed presentation to the recent EPA Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) meeting to discuss the topic “Evaluation of Hazard and Exposure Associated with Nanosilver and Other Nanometal Oxide Pesticide Products (Arlington VA, November 3-6, 2009). Key conclusions from the presented analysis include:

The SNWG provided the SAP meeting with a detailed historical and technical analysis that demonstrated that these materials have a long established commercial history as engineered particles of nanoscale size. Despite changes in terminology, the underlying material being described is in fact the same that has been used for decades. i.e. nanoscale silver.

EPA has a long history of safely regulating nano-silver

The EPA has been safely and successfully regulating nano-silver products for decades. These products have been used in a wide range of consumer applications such as swimming pool treatments and drinking water filters with an established record under FIFRA of regulated and safe use dating as far back as the 1950’s.

A detailed look at the depth of history of silver within the EPA shows that the toxicological studies that form the basis of the EPA’s general hazard limits for silver derive from historical data from nanoscale silver materials and not ‘conventional (bulk) silver’ as is often mistakenly assumed. A careful examination of the EPA public registration database (NPIRS Public) for silver over a period of 6 decades reveals:

The very first registered silver product was a colloidal nanosilver algaecide product that has been safely used by millions of consumers for over 50 years (registered since 1954).  Every EPA silver registration between 1970 and 1990 was either a colloidal nanosilver or nanosilver-composite product. The very first NON-nanosilver product registered by EPA was not registered until 1994. An overall analysis reveals that today over 50% of all EPA registered silver products are in fact based on nanoscale silver. Silver Washes Out Of The System Quickly

According to the EPA IRIS Report on silver (Integrated Risk Information Systems, 5th page, 1st paragraph) it states that a number of tests were completed to test the absorption and retention of ingested silver in a number of animals, including primates (we are primates). In its conclusion, the test work indicated that between 90-99% of ingested silver was excreted on the second day after ingestion, and greater than 99% was excreted in less than a week. So, in other words, almost all of the ingested silver was out of the body in only two days, and most of the rest was out of the body in a week. They found that silver does not build up in the system.

“Silver occurs naturally mainly in the form of its very insoluble and immobile oxides, sulfides, and some salts. It has occasionally been found in ground, surface, and drinking-water at concentrations above 5 µg/liter. Levels in drinking-water treated with silver for disinfection (see Protection and improvement of water quality) may be above 50 µg/liter. Recent estimates of daily intake are about 7 µg per person.”

“Only a small percentage of silver is absorbed. Retention rates in humans and laboratory animals range between 0 and 10%.”

“The only obvious sign of silver overload is argyria, a condition in which skin and hair are heavily discolored by silver in the tissues. An oral NOAEL for argyria in humans for a total lifetime intake of 10 grams of silver was estimated on the basis of human case reports and long-term animal experiments.”

How Long Does The Body Retain Ingested Silver?

According to the EPA IRIS (Integrated Risk Information Systems) Report on silver (5th page, 1st paragraph), several tests were conducted in order to determine the absorption and retention of ingested silver in a number of animals (including primates). These tests indicated that between 90-99% of ingested silver was excreted by the second day after ingestion and greater than 99% was excreted in less than a week. This clearly shows that silver does not build up in the system when consumed in small amounts.

Conclusions;

1. According to the EPA, who is charged with defining safe levels of any mineral in water used for ingestion or drinking, “the oral consumption of small amounts of silver in water on a daily basis poses no significant degree of risk.”

2. The U.S. Government’s Center for Disease Control confirmed in 1995 that there has never been any allergic, toxic or carcinogenic reaction to colloidal silver.

At 3600 PPM, NutraSilver is 180 times more powerful drop for drop than a common 20 ppm colloidal silver solution.

What does that mean to you? It means everything. Especially for peace of mind when fighting nasty infections and lowering your overall costs.

You might be thinking, “Wow, 3600 ppm is just too much.” If you were to take it straight, for some things it could be. But you don’t have to use it at that concentration. The secret is that you can dilute NutraSilver as much as you want without losing effectiveness for typical household uses, you can’t do that with a 10 or 20 ppm colloidal silver.

So what if you or your loved one is suffering… with a horrible viral infection, one that antibiotics can’t touch (antibiotics don’t work for viruses at all, NutraSilver does). If you try and treat the infection with a normal 10 ppm or 20 ppm colloidal silver solution, you’re almost guaranteed to reach a point of desperation as more time passes, the pain never subsides, and nothing deters the viral infection as it rages on.

Colloidal Silver for Pink Eye

Benefits of colloidal silver for conjunctivitis are described in this article

 Colloidal silver consists of suspension of fine particles of silver in dispersion medium of distilled water. It possesses excellent natural antibiotic properties which enable it to fight various infections caused by virus, fungus, bacteria and many other micro organisms. It can fight off even those bacteria that have become immune to regular antibiotic medicines. Another advantage is that colloids are one such submicroscopic particles of matter that can penetrate through the membranes of the cells in our body. Thus colloidal silver can be readily absorbed into the body. For all these qualities, more and more people opt for colloidal silver treatment.

Colloidal Silver and Pink Eye

Pink eye is also referred to as conjunctivitis. In this condition, inflammation occur on the transparent mucous membrane that covers the eyeball and eyelid lining. This is mostly caused due to bacterial and viral infection. Some common symptoms of pink eye are redness in eyes, itchiness and burning sensation, swollen eyelids, excessive tear, sticky discharge from the eyes. Even though the symptoms causes a lot of discomfort, it is not a serious ailment. However, it is highly contagious and spread from an infected person to others around him or her very rapidly.

For a prompt action against this highly infectious virus and bacteria, colloidal silver is used. When colloidal silver is applied on the infected eye, the tiny silver colloids pick up the infected cells by attracting them electromagnetically and put them into the bloodstream. In this way, the germs are eliminated from the body.

Similarly, you can use colloidal silver for stye. Staphylococcus bacteria is mainly responsible for this eye infection that affects the oil secreting glands present at the root of the eyelash. Eye stye can be identified as a fluid filled blister with yellowish spot at center. On application of colloidal silver, the bacteria get killed and the bump will be healed.

How to Use Colloidal Silver for Pink Eye?

Colloidal silver can be used both internally as well as externally. By the topical usage of colloidal silver, pink eye can be treated. It can be used as eye drops. For this, wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly to make them free from germs. Open the infected eyelid with one hand and put 2 – 3 drops of colloidal silver into the eye. If both eyes are infected, then apply it on the other eye too. You have to repeat it 3 – 4 times in a day. If you want, you can put it into a spray bottle and spray it into the eyes. You can also prepare an eyewash by diluting a few drops of colloidal silver in water and using it to disinfect the eyes.

You will be surprised to know that colloidal silver can provide relief from the symptoms of pink eye within a few hours. However, you must continue to use colloidal silver for conjunctivitis for the next few days to get rid of the infection completely. If you fear that you may get stinging sensation after application, then let me assure you that it does not sting at all. In fact, it is suitable for people of any age group including small babies, children and elderly. In order to obtain the best results from this treatment, you can take colloidal silver orally as well. This will strengthen your immune system, enable your body to recover from the infection really fast and reduce the chances of further infection.

The best part of using colloidal silver for pink eye is that it does not have any side effects

Nutrasilver has been helping Moms and babies with Pink-eye for many years.  I have used it on my 2- month old Granddaughter’s pick-eye and within an hour, her eyes were perfectly clear. She continued to do her job of being a happy baby with no complaint.

Morgellons Suffering Ends for Larry

These results are typical

I just wanted to thank you for speaking with me a few days ago. Your advice, encouragement, and concern meant a lot to me. I backed down to 40-50 drops of NutriSilver [for Morgellons], and now I am feeling

Actual Morgellons Lesion

much, much better. I think I was just taking a little too much and feeling the results of a “mini-purge” for several days. I was also taking a lot of hot baths, sweating a lot, and drinking a lot of water. However, all of that has paid off. Most of my sores have indeed fallen off, and last night I didn’t feel any “crawling.” I started taking NutriSilver on July 6th, so I am coming to the end of my third week. I am getting better just like you said I would.
In this day and age, there are fewer and fewer people that you can trust (especially when it comes to buying something). So I hope you will forgive me for giving you a hard time at first. Thank you for putting up with my phone calls, for listening and understanding. But most of all, thank you for offering a product that really does work and for being a person that really does care. Morgellons was destroying my life. My family didn’t understand. The doctors turned their backs on me. No one was willing to help except for you. I will never be able to thank you enough.

If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. I have many skills in the area of writing, computer graphics, web design, and legal stuff. I might even be interested in selling NutriSilver, if that is possible. No matter what, I intend to devote a great deal of time telling others about this product. It has literally saved my life. I know that there are thousands of people out there who are hurting and don;t know what to do. I met many of them on the internet when I was searching for an answer. If you want to guide me, then let me know. I will gladly listen to you (without argument, I promise).

Thank you again.

Sincerely, Larry T. July, 2012

Podiatrist Re-enters Medicine Because He Eliminated Morgellons Symptoms

Podiatrist Re-enters Medicine Because He Eliminated Morgellons Symptoms

My story is almost identical to everyone else’s with this horrid disease.  I started seeing doctors in the fall of 2002 for an unrelenting lesion on the creased area between the bottom lip and chin.  No matter what I did this area become worse and became larger and chronically infected with a couple of different bacteria.  It wasn’t until I surgically had the area scoured for these ‘cystic ingrown’ hairs.  It was like each hair in the area was surrounded by a thick sheath, almost like a cocoon. The irritation and the pain in this now gapping hole finally started to subside when all of the hair follicles were removed and I was put in the hospital and put on I.V. antibiotics.  After that region had healed I thought I was good to go but man was I wrong!

I am a podiatrist by trade so I am very well aware of infectious disease and all things medical and I thought I new what was best for me as being the well informed patient.  The best thing I could get as far as an accurate diagnosis was that I had an inflammatory non-infectious type of folliculitis but in my case the dermatologist said that my associated pus was not bacterial but mainly made up of the inflammatory response which was supposedly also responsible for the thick hair sheaths that kept the hairs from growing right.  He postulated that the redness and positive response to the antibiotic was because I had contracted a superficial bacterial infection on top of the inflammatory one.  The only other opinions I had to compare it to were from another dermatologist and a plastic surgeon who both unequivocally said that I was neurotic and that I had caused the newly formed regions on my face because of my own neurotic self mutilation.  Looking back at it now I am surprised that ‘delusions of parasitosis’ wasn’t what came out of their mouths!  The premise was the same, however, that I was off my rocker, nuts and/or delusional.

 

So I went on and on and on trying everything imaginable including antifungals, numerous skin care regimens, antiparasitics, antivirals and more and more antibiotics.  Nothing was helping me and I was extremely weary of going to another doctor because I didn’t want to be labeled crazy again…..  At this time I had sold my practice and basically got ‘raped’ by all the legal fees I had wrapped up in all of this plus I was quickly plummeting back into the grips of depression and was not optimistic about maintaining my recovery from a very severe oral hydrocodone habit that I had fought with for 6 years before then.  You would have thought that my face would have fallen off during the height of my addiction, right?  But no!  It actually started after I stopped with the whole drug thing.  I went to a very intensive 6 month inpatient rehab and had a solid support group and was motivated by the licensure board to be very compliant via biweekly urine tests and on going counseling.  So I was compliant.  But after that I had a difficult time getting reinsured for anything resembling a reasonable rate and took a few weeks finding a carrier when in their infinite wisdom, the board felt as though I violated the terms of my license probation and took my license for the four years remaining on my probation.

So to top that off I reinjured my back which was what initiated my primary addiction to pain meds and now had to deal with that too.  You might as well of just handed me a loaded gun.  It was all a bit much to deal with!  Oh yeah, the younger women I left my wife of 14 years for, well she decided she had enough too.  I guess it was looking pretty bleak for my immediate future and since all my retirement went to rehab and after care my measly ‘windfall’ of cash I received from selling my practice lasted about 5 months.

So sure enough, in no time, I found myself back on pain meds and full throttle back down the wrong road.  But something changed when I checked myself back into rehab later in 2003 for the second time since the original, I asked God for help and he listened and gave me some new hope.

Now I was still far from realizing what I had and had no idea what Morgellon’s disease was or had even heard or read about it.  I was going to get back on top no matter what, or so I thought.  As time went on I ended up having to go on public Access for my medical care and worked with the office for vocational rehabilitation in Pennsylvania for assistance in working toward getting my license back.  That was in 2004. From late 2004 until late 2005 OVR helped finance laser treatment for hair removal and scar revisions.  It was great, for nearly a year I went lesion free but had 14 very painful treatments which I figured was worth it.  Low and behold I had persistent fatigue for which I sought medical care and found out that I had a very low level hepatitis C infection.  I went on to a specialist for 6 months of antiviral and interferon treatment which would drive you batty if you weren’t already.  So thank God that in very short order my Hep C was completely gone and my titers have been zero since then.  You guessed it though, my fatigue continued.  Shortly after my facial treatment I started with the small lesions appearing on both my face and neck.  I was beside myself.  My drug problem was back under control and I was determined to find what was going on with me medically.  I remember when I was convinced that my ailments were connected in some way to some kind of parasite.

So I surfed the internet at that time for hours and hours and remember coming across something about Morgellon’s but what was out there was very sketchy and most of it was about how insane the whole notion was.  This was less than two years ago.  So I gave up my obsessive search and just tried to go on day by day.  I had started working for my family’s construction business and had another relationship going but the lesions kept popping up and I would obsess with clearing each one of those ridiculous infected hairs.  The pain and discomfort was outrageous but I felt infested until I got them out and then the lesions would heal.  I did start getting a lot of questions about my face and I’m sure that many people probably thought I fell back off the wagon, but I hadn’t.

It wasn’t until I had an ear injury and saw another plastic surgeon to whom I plead my chronic case to and he related to another patient that he had treated.  He pulled up the patients note from late 2007 and had treated this patient for a couple of back lesions that had the fiber coming from them.  The doctor was quite diligent about his medical workup and relayed the info to me.  I had retained some pathology lesions from before and when I got home I looked at them microscopically and low and behold their were the fibers.  It finally clicked!  My particular Morgellon’s has very little of the thickened fibers but I started to realize and see the very thin white fibers not only microscopically but coming from my fairly aggressive facial cleanings.  It was then I delved back into the internet to find a whole different story on Morgellon’s disease and potential remedies when I found the miracle in NutraSilver.  By now I have been unemployed for almost a year and continue with Access and fortunately my retired father owns a small rental in our small town so I have been able to keep my head (barely) above water.

My father has been on board with the facial thing and Morgellon’s but has a tougher time comprehending the fatigue associated with it.  But God bless him, besides caring for my mom (he’s 84 and she is 77 and with Alzheimer’s) he has helped me with buying the NutraSilver which I found to be the source to keep my fire of hope burning bright.  Within the first 6 days the three huge lesions I had on my neck and both cheeks nearly shrunk by over a third!!!  I was amazed!  It also helped my energy levels but that still seems to be the biggest issue.  This started in August of this year and all I know is that everyone who is rallying behind getting this nightmare classified and recognized as a bonafied non-psychological disorder is getting us a whole lot closer!  But check this out:  I have a kitty cat that is about 16 years old and I have suspected that maybe she has had diabetes for awhile, I don’t know.  She had gotten to the point where she was blind and running into things and missing her step quite often.  I was so elated with the NutraSilver I started putting 5 to 10 drops in her wet food each night.  Wouldn’t you know it with in 5 days my sweet kitty could definitely see again!!  That’s right!  She went from blind to being able to see and see quite well at that.  What a joy that is for me and her!  I don’t have any idea of the mechanism but perhaps she had some glaucoma going on from the diabetes or infection and what ever was directly causing it has been seriously beaten down by the great and wonderful NutraSilver.  I have seen it with my own eyes and I can attest to how much better it is making me feel.  There is one caveat, however.  While trying to stretch out the doses for myself and going to once a week for the cat, I have seen that time between running out and being able to get some more as a big hump to over come.  It has been taking on average about 10 days in between and I’ll tell you it is like someone knocks me back a few days before I start to respond to the new dose.  I tried to use just 3 bottles for a month but it starts to loose its effectiveness.  I have considered going the IV route but the logistics and headaches surrounding getting and maintaining a central or peripheral venous line is not very likely (let alone finding someone to go along with it).

So I reapplied for my license and was granted that with  full disclosure and given with no restrictions!  The last of my lesions are healing albeit they are taking a rather long time doing so.  Also as of this November I have been granted the right to reapply for my Medicare/Medicaid access number to be a provider once again!  And finally I have a job offer on the table waiting for me to join a group practice beginning in the New Year!!  Unbelievable huh?  I know NutraSilver is not the cure all to end all but with their ultra high concentrations of colloidal silver and their quality control they have, by far the best thing going!  Thank you NutraSilver and thank you Mr. Russell B. Altman for your ongoing support and dedication to this crazy nightmare of a disease!

So that’s it in a nutshell.  Once I realized what I had I did not seem very hopeful or optimistic about finding a cure, but with NutraSilver I have been able to get back to about 75% of my life back.  I still have my bad days but they are farer and fewer between and most of all with all of the talk and support I believe we can get this recognized by the general medical population in a relatively short time.  It seems to be nearing its tipping point where hopefully, if the CDC presents it right, will be appropriately accepted into mainstream medicine.  Thank you for your hard work!  Say a prayer………..God is listening!

Very sincerely yours,

Left Untreated, Lyme Disease Can Kill

Untreated, Lyme Disease Can Kill

Borreliosis, or Lyme disease, is an infectious disease caused by bacteria that is carried by several varieties of tick. It often is brought into a home by pets. Ticks also live in tall grasses and may cling to people and animals as they walk by. It is the most common disease of its kind in the Northern Hemisphere. When an infected tick bites, the disease is able to grow and spread. Most, though not all, people who have the disease become ill. The first stage symptoms are characterized by chills, fever, headaches, lethargy, and muscle pain. It resembles the common flu.

Some patients develop a round, “bulls-eye” rash. This is the spot of the tick bite. Antibiotics are used to treat this stage of the disease. Symptoms for stage two of Lyme disease are not consistent, and may disappear on their own. Many patients that exhibit stage two symptoms do not have the rash that characterizes stage one. In addition to the aforementioned symptoms, many patients experience blurred vision, fainting, stiff neck and joint inflammation. Facial paralysis, hallucinations, nausea, and vomiting are not uncommon. Antibiotics are given to these patients intravenously, due to the severity of its affect on the nervous system.

If left untreated and Lyme disease moves to stage three, it will not only affect the skin and joints, but may cause damage to the brain, muscles and bones. Symptoms, in addition to those mentioned in stages one and two, include sensitivity to light, confusion, memory loss and sleep disorders. This stage may develop months, or even years after being contracted. A round of antibiotics that lasts up to 28 days is the standard treatment. Depending on the severity of the symptoms and age of the patient, they may be administered intravenously. Blood tests are most often used to diagnosis the disease.

Despite the number of people bitten by ticks each year, most do not contract Lyme disease. Symptoms, once manifest, may last for three to four weeks. There are several steps that can be taken to reduce the chances of contracting this disease. When a tick is found on a body, whether human or a pet, it should be removed immediately.  If it is removed within 36 hours, the transmission rates for the disease are close to zero. Colloidal silver has been an effective deterrent when used to treat the symptoms of the disease. For more information, visit the site.

I have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease since, 2005.

The Majority of the treatment I attempted for the disease, was with antibiotics , which made me ill. I would try to take them before I went running, hoping to maximize their efficiency.

But I could, and would function with antibiotics , I was able to responded for three months to Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma while taking Amoxicillin though I was constantly nauseous.

My most distinct “symptom” of the disease is a signature symptom, tinnitus, my ears ring. The ringing in my ears modulated directly in response to the effectiveness of the treatment. I could hear both changes frequency and pitch, so I know how well any treatment works.

If I stopped the treatment however, the disease was quick to return loud and clear, and only when I took a higher than recommended dose of tetracycline , did my ears ever stop ringing, its like having a turbine ocean in my head 24/7 rising and falling. I deduced tentatively that individual colonies have their own strength and frequency based of their environment and their [electrical] reproductive potential. I was “hearing” a composite of these signals with interference patterns, peaks and oscillations.

I found NutraSilver in 2007 while reading about Morgellons, and decided to give it a try.

I know that NutraSilver, with almost unparalleled success against all known pathogens, has medicinal value beyond its field use as a water cleansing agent. NutraSilver® and its new partner MMS are vital to the survival, and early growth of new families in a manner, Untraumatized by new and emerging diseases like Borrelia burgdorferi or Morgellons (trematode infection).

How do I know that NutraSilver has value, as in antibiotic value you ask ? Because since October 2007 I haven’t been using antibiotics at all! I have been using NutraSilver®, exclusively!

My experience with NutraSilver was astounding, I could mix any where from 30 to 150 drops of NutraSilver per day, in a standard bottled water, and treat my disease while at work, with no ill effects.

The ringing has stopped several times only to resume fainter, each time, so I am getting close to what I consider remission. I Thank Jesus For NutraSilver and Medical Pioneers who made it reality. I did however have to cut out soft drinks and try to not eat sugar which this disease thrives on!

My regimen was to take three or more daily doses of NutraSilver in a plastic 12 ounce bottled water and then once a week to go for one or more 150 drop “Reduction Doses” in my Standard U.S. Military one quart Canteen.

Is Colloidal Silver a Drug or is it a Nutritional Supplement?

Under current FDA rules, colloidal silver is a nutritional supplement

If you make any claim as to its ability to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or condition, colloidal silver is now a drug. If you drink carrot juice to quench your thirst it is carrot juice.  If you drink carrot juice to help improve your eyesight, carrot juice is now a drug!

BACKGROUND ON REGULATION OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS

Congress defined the term “dietary supplement” as a product that, among other things, is intended for ingestion, is intended to supplement the diet, is labeled as a dietary supplement, is not represented as a conventional food or as a sole item of a meal or diet, and contains a “dietary ingredient.” “Dietary ingredients” are defined as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs or other botanicals, dietary substances (such as enzymes), and concentrates, metabolites, constituents, extracts, or combinations of the preceding types of ingredients. Dietary supplements may be found in many forms, such as tablets, capsules, liquids, or bars.

So, in effect, citizens of the USA are not allowed to say anything more than colloidal silver is a nutritional supplement, even if they have scientific proof (e.g. lab reports from FDA-registered labs) that colloidal silver can kill specific pathogens.

In 1996, the FDA solicited input from the colloidal silver industry and citizens as to the efficacy and to provide scientific proof of its ability to kill pathogens.  Since the colloidal silver industry was very young and under-financed, the industry as a whole did not know about the request from the FDA for information, nor did they have the financial resources to conduct such testing and supply the FDA with sufficient information as to the safety and efficacy of colloidal silver.  Lacking sufficient data, the FDA ruled that:

FDA ISSUES FINAL RULE ON OTC DRUG PRODUCTS CONTAINING COLLOIDAL SILVER

The FDA has issued a Final Rule declaring that all over- the-counter (OTC) drug products containing colloidal silver or silver salts are not recognized as safe and effective and are misbranded. The ruling categorized colloidal silver as an unclassified drug. Any colloidal silver products marketed as having medicinal properties are now in violation of federal law.

Since the FDA ruling, it is fair to ask:

  1. What evidence is there that colloidal silver is toxic?

  2. What evidence is there that colloidal silver in not effective against pathogens?

  3. Which evidence was relied upon to form the regulations?

These questions go unanswered

After exhaustive work based on anecdotal evidence, the study of EPA guidelines, FDA inquiries, and various privately sponsored research studies, it is quite clear that isolated colloidal silver is NOT a toxic substance in the body. This can be demonstrated theoretically by legally established guidelines, by a growing body of anecdotal evidence, and by various studies concentrating on colloidal silver elimination through natural body processes.

However, due to the fact that silver is both a natural substance AND not a controlled substance, it is still protected under the ‘The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act’. Under this law, any labeling and/or advertising referring to any health benefits of the substance in question is unlawful. The substance must be labeled as a dietary supplement and may NOT be marketed for external use.

The FDA Admits it has no Clinical Data Suggesting

Please notice that none of the above questions was addressed or answered!

Speculation is free, yet the FDA, with the stroke of the pen, has outlawed a remedy going back to biblical times that has saved countless lives throughout time. There are literally thousands of university and government studies that conclude that colloidal silver is a strong antimicrobial and if fact, colloidal silver was the standard of care prior to antibiotics.

Why else would NASA use colloidal silver to purify the astronauts’ drinking water?

The World Health Organization promotes the use of colloidal silver in drinking water and said “(There) is no health-based guideline value proposed for silver in drinking-water.”

And the US EPA said “Although the deposition of silver is permanent (argyria), it is not associated with any adverse health effects. No pathologic changes or inflammatory reactions have been shown to result from silver deposition.”

Apparently, there is absolutely no evidence that colloidal silver can in any way be harmful to humans or animals.  The only adverse effect from colloidal silver is a very rare and non-threatening effect called argyria. There have not been any cases of anyone getting this disorder taking true colloidal silver. The FDA said, in essence, that they simply did not have enough information, so they banned colloidal silver.

So, colloidal silver is relegated to the ranks of ‘nutritional supplement’ and unless a company is willing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars and wait 10 years for approval “as a new drug”, colloidal silver will never become a real tool for medical science to eliminate suffering in mankind.

Colloidal silver is not FDA approved, but Vioxx Is

60,000 Americans DIED from Vioxx.  There has never been one case of someone dying from colloidal silver.  You can still buy Vioxx. It is amazing what a ruling can do, even in the face of admission from the FDA that it did not have enough information to rule otherwise.  The logic is; if we can’t prove it safe, it must not be safe. This is tantamount to saying that since we do not know if life exists on other planets, it must not.

Here’s What All This Means For You

What this means is you haven’t seen a product like NutraSilver, ever, and you should give it a risk-free trial right now. You’ve got no risk. Try it and if it doesn’t do the job, you’ve lost nothing.

I appreciate you being willing to try a new and powerful product in a very old industry. We love colloidal silver and we think we have the best product in the world. I hope this makes it easy to see that NutraSilver is the most powerful and practical colloidal silver product on the market. It’s the highest quality silver you can buy and it will save you $100s. You’ll love it.

  • If having the best quality colloidal silver matters for you…
  • If saving money on colloidal silver matters to you…
  • If having a product you can trust to work matters to you…
  • If having a product that gives you peace of mind matters to you…

It makes plain sense to get yourself a bottle or two of NutraSilver right now.

Colloidal silver gaining ground as a proven, effective antibiotic remedy

Resurected from decades of misinformation from Pharma…..

Colloidal silver, a liquid suspension of the metal silver, is currently a hot topic in the world of medicine. While alternative medicine praises its use as an antibiotic, mainstream medicine considers it somewhat of a poison. But colloidal silver is neither a poison nor a panacea: It is a safe and proven topical antibiotic that may cautiously be used internally.

In the nineteenth century, colloidal silver — also known as Argentum colloidale, Argentum crede and collargolum — was a prominent treatment for everything from colds to skin infections. In the 1940s, the FDA began its decades-long oppression of medicinal silver under the guise that it was unsafe; however, in reality, the FDA banned silver because of the threat it poses to the antibiotics industry, rather than any threat it poses for your body. If you’d like to learn more about the FDA’s campaign against silver, be sure to download the Health Ranger’s Commentary on Curad bandages made with silver. In his commentary, he not only praises Curad’s new bandages, but also details how astounding their FDA approval is, given the FDA’s historical campaign against the medicinal use of silver.

Johnson & Johnson get onboard with colloidal silver

As you can see from Curad’s new bandages, colloidal silver is a safe and effective topical method to fight infections. As Phyllis A. Balch and Dr. James F. Balch write in Prescription for Nutritional Healing,  “Topically, colloidal silver can safely and inexpensively protect you from infection in a wide variety of ways: it can be used to fight fungal infections of the skin or nails and to promote the healing of burns, wounds, cuts, rashes, and sunburn. It can be used on toothaches and mouth sores, as eye drops and as a gargle to fight tooth decay and bad breath. It can also be used as sterilizer and can even be sprayed on air-conditioning filters and air ducts and vents to prevent germs from growing.” In addition to those found in air conditioning vents, germs make many other aspects of our environment both unhealthy and bad-smelling. Colloidal silver, as a powerful antibiotic and antifungal agent, can make your environment just as healthy as it can make your body.

According to Joseph B. Marion’s Anti-Aging Manual, Pierce Instruments manufactures a nylon-Silver fabric called Silvelon. They use Silvelon to make everything from odor-proof socks and shoe liners to antiseptic kitchen sponges. Of course, you can also make your own odor-proof socks by soaking regular socks in colloidal silver solution, but the choice is yours.

According to many sources, it is not dangerous to use colloidal silver internally, as long as you take it in the recommended, reasonable dosages. “Taken internally, colloidal silver can be used to fight infection. It has been shown to be effective against more that 650 disease-causing organisms, including Escherichia coli (E. Coli) bacteria and the fungus Candida albicans,” writes Dr. James F. and Phyllis A. Balch. As you may remember from the hamburger scares of the 1990s, E. coli infections can be deadly, especially among young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. In this sense, colloidal silver is a lifesaver: When all else fails, it can beat infections presumed unbeatable. It is under these extreme conditions that patients may justifiably consider using colloidal silver internally — but only under the direction of a qualified health practitioner such as a naturopath or qualified AltMed Practitioner.

Pneumona, AIDS and colloidal silver

AIDS-related pneumonia due to staphylococcal, pneumocystis, streptococcal, klebsiella and fungal infections may also warrant internal use of colloidal silver. These types of pneumonia are very difficult to fight with traditional antibiotic treatment; moreover, people with weakened immune systems, such as acquired immune deficiency syndrome, are especially prone to them. For a weak immune system, these types of pneumonia are sometimes unbeatable, making alternative measures a necessity. “Dr. Marchial-Vega had considerable clinical experience with a colloidal silver preparation that contains between 20 and 25 parts of silver per million parts of water. This preparation has proven effective in patients with HIV¦ In the hospital, the therapy is administered by a special nebulizer as well as orally,” reports Dr. James Howenstine in A Physician’s Guide to Natural Healing Products that Work.

You don’t have to be afraid of genuine colloidal silver. There are a multitude of safe and effective colloidal silver products on the market, so be sure to research what you use before you use it and, by all means, use it as recommended on the label. As a side note, some colloidal silver companies claim that colloidal silver is an anti-cancer agent. According to Dan Labriola’s Complementary Cancer Therapies, “There is no reliable human evidence that this (colloidal silver) is an effective cancer treatment.” But as a broad-spectrum antibiotic, colloidal silver is well proven.

The experts speak on colloidal silver:

Just as it sounds, colloidal silver is a liquid suspension of the metal silver. It is marketed by a number of companies for a variety of uses, including as an antibiotic and anticancer agent. There is no reliable human evidence that this is an effective cancer treatment. Complementary Cancer Therapies by Dan Labriola ND, page 190

Colloidal silver is an inexpensive healing agent and disinfectant that has a myriad of applications. It is a clear golden liquid composed of 99. 9-percent pure silver particles approximately 0.001 to 0.01 microns in diameter that are suspended in pure water. Colloidal silver can be mixed with either tap or distilled water and applied topically, taken by mouth, or administered intravenously. Prescription For Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A Balch CNC and James F Balch MD, page 66

Historical use of silver in medicine

Silver is highly toxic to most microbial cells and can be used as an antimicrobial agent. Silver-containing compounds, such as silver sulfadiazine, which has broad antimicrobial as well as antifungal activity, and silver nitrate, are used in medicine as topical agents. Colloidal silver is a suspension of extremely small silver particles and was used in medicine until the 1940s as both a topical and an internal antiseptic. Colloidal silver was also known as argentum colloidale, argentum crede and collargolum. PDR For Nutritional Supplements by Sheldon Saul Hendle and David Rorvik, page 110

In contrast to medical antibiotics that can be used only against specific microbes, colloidal silver has a wide range of effectiveness, eliminating bacteria as well as viruses and fungi. Unlike medical antibiotics, colloidal silver is not known to cause undesirable side effects. Colloidal zinc can be especially effective against viruses. The colloids of copper and gold, on the other hand, are strong anti-inflammatory agents; in addition, copper and zinc can be used chelated (bound) with salicylic acid for similar benefits.

Colloidal silver’s possible additional uses

This liquefied form of silver is a powerful natural antibiotic that can help knock out an acute sinus infection, says John M. Sullivan, M.D., a physician in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Buy a bottle of colloidal silver, put some full-strength into a spray bottle, and use one or two squirts into your nose twice a day until the infection has been noticeably gone for 3 days.

Start with half-hour on day 1, to 2 hours on days 7 through 3 0, tapering off to 15 minutes on day 3 7; taking Ozone water, colloidal silver, activated Charcoal, and hot/cold Water showers to break-down and eliminate toxins.

Treat the infection

Your physician can prescribe an appropriate antibiotic to treat the underlying infection. If you are working with a physician who specializes in natural therapies, he or she may suggest the use of colloidal silver, golden seal and/or grapefruit seed extract. Digestive Wellness By Elizabeth Lipski MS CCN, page 274

Small bowel infections, esophageal Candida and other infections are likely to reoccur. No specific research has been done to show that use of supplementation with flora and other natural therapies can help with reoccurrence, but they do help to boost the immune system. You may be able to keep the infection at bay with use of colloidal silver, grapefruit seed extract or garlic capsules. Each of these substances has wide antimicrobial properties, low toxicity and a low incidence of negative side effects. Digestive Wellness By Elizabeth Lipski MS CCN, page 313

When chlamydia is causing infertility, colloidal silver helps to clean up the system

Rashes, including blistering types, are frequently due to what we put on our skin. One cause is soap because it may contain an artificial chemical that produces an adverse reaction. If you have a rash problem, it is advisable to use the type of soap that is 100 percent natural, or at least one that is unscented. A rash can be cleaned with a mixture composed primarily of aloe vera, along with colloidal silver, bee propolis, pau d’arco, and purified water. Then, wrap the area with gauze that is kept somewhat moist, so the mixture remains on the rash. After four or five hours, the rash should begin to heal. Power Aging by Gary Null, page 307

Persistent bowel problems have been correlated with recurrent UTIs. Our bodies eliminate wastes in several ways, including the excretion of feces by the bowels, the expulsion of carbon dioxide by the lungs, perspiration by the skin, and the discharge of urine by the kidneys and bladder. If any of these processes is malfunctioning, an excessive burden is placed upon the other systems. I do not believe that antibiotics are the proper treatment for UTIs because they do not get to the underlying cause. The proper approach is to rebalance the system by switching from an acidic diet to an alkaline one. Unsweetened cranberry juice with cherries and raspberries, four to five times a day, can ameliorate the severe pain. Pomegranate juice, two times a day, and grapefruit juice with the seeds and the skins are valuable too. Lemon, lime, and bee propolis with 10 drops of colloidal silver are also helpful. Because of the vitamin C content, these juices will create acidic urine (but not acid in the body), which creates an unfavorable environment for bacteria in the urine and bladder. Chlorophyll from spirulina is exceptionally good for the body as well. Power Aging by Gary Null, page 365

However, if you store drinking water for a longer time, you can add some colloidal silver or hydrogen peroxide to keep it free of molds and other microbes or possibly put a piece of clean copper or a silver coin at the bottom of the container. The Natural Way to Heal by Walter Last, page 40

Experience The NutraSilver Difference

At 3600 PPM, NutraSilver is 180 times more powerful drop for drop than a common 20 ppm colloidal silver solution.

What does that mean to you? It means everything. Especially for peace of mind when fighting nasty infections and lowering your overall costs.

You might be thinking, “Wow, 3600 ppm is just too much.” If you were to take it straight, for some things it could be. But you don’t have to use it at that concentration. The secret is that you can dilute NutraSilver as much as you want without losing effectiveness for typical household uses, you can’t do that with a 10 or 20 ppm colloidal silver.

So what if you or your loved one is suffering… with a horrible viral infection, one that antibiotics can’t touch (antibiotics don’t work for viruses at all, NutraSilver does). If you try and treat the infection with a normal 10 ppm or 20 ppm colloidal silver solution, you’re almost guaranteed to reach a point of desperation as more time passes, the pain never subsides, and nothing deters the viral infection as it rages on.

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.

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 metalic silver 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 themwithout 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

What this means is you haven’t seen a product like NutraSilver, ever, and you should give it a risk-free trial right now. You’ve got no risk. Try it and if it doesn’t do the job, you’ve lost nothing.

I appreciate you being willing to try a new and powerful product in a very old industry. We love colloidal silver and we think we have the best product in the world. I hope this makes it easy to see that NutraSilver is the most powerful and practical colloidal silver product on the market. It’s the highest quality silver you can buy and it will save you $100s. You’ll love it.

  • If having the best quality colloidal silver matters for you…
  • If saving money on colloidal silver matters to you…
  • If having a product you can trust to work matters to you…
  • If having a product that gives you peace of mind matters to you…

It makes plain sense to get yourself a bottle or two of NutraSilver right now.
