SHOCKING! Deadly MRSA Super-Pathogen Now Contaminates 50% of U.S. Food Supply

Our food supply is in trouble

I’m going to get straight to the point. Infections caused by the flesh-eating MRSA super-pathogen (i.e., drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), now kill more people annually in the U.S. than AIDS.

Indeed, according to WebMD.com, MRSA is now responsible for a whopping 94,000 life-threatening infections and 18,650 deaths each year in the U.S. alone.

But four bona fide clinical studies I’ll show you in just a moment demonstrate that safe, natural colloidal silver — the world’s most powerful natural antibiotic — literally decimates the MRSA pathogen!

What % of our food supply is contaminated?

Here’s the bad news: A brand new study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases has demonstrated that an average of 50% of all the beef, chicken, pork and turkey bought in five U.S. cities and sampled by researchers were contaminated with the deadly MRSA pathogen. That’s up from only 14% MRSA contamination found in studies conducted last year.

In other words, the problem with MRSA-contaminated meats in our food supply is skyrocketing! But health authorities are keeping it under wraps out of fear people will quit buying meat and devastate another critical part of the economy.

According to medical journalist Leah Zerbe, earlier this year researchers tested 136 total samples (80 different brands) of ground beef, chicken, pork and turkey purchased from 26 retail grocery stores in five U.S. cities. The shocking results: Nearly 80% of the turkey, 42% of the pork, 41% of the chicken and 37% of the beef were contaminated with antibiotic-resistant staph, i.e., MRSA!

Colloidal Silver Decimates MRSA!

As I mentioned earlier, numerous clinical studies prove colloidal silver handily destroys the MRSA pathogen. So before I explain how you can keep an unlimited supply of colloidal silver on hand for just pennies, and let you hear from a number of real-life colloidal silver users who have healed their own deadly MRSA infections, let me summarize just four of these important clinical studies for you.

After all, with MRSA now infecting half the nation’s meat supply, it’s become critical for families like yours to understand how truly effective colloidal silver is against this insidious pathogen, as well as how to use colloidal silver to stop MRSA infections dead in their tracks:

Case #1: Brigham Young Clinical Study Proves Colloidal Silver Kills MRSA — In this study, conducted at Brigham Young University, and published in the journal Current Science, it was found that a number of the antibiotic drugs which formerly killed drug-resistant pathogens such as MRSA could actually be restored to full efficacy against the deadly pathogens, but only if a liquid solution of colloidal silver was used in conjunction with the drug! Since these antibiotic drugs had previously lost their effectiveness against the super-pathogens, this study clearly demonstrates that the silver was the deciding factor in the deaths of the deadly drug-resistant pathogens!

Case #2: Iranian Clinical Study Proves Silver Increases Effectiveness of Antibiotic Drugs Against Staph — This study was conducted by the Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Medical Nanotechnology Research Center at the University of Tehran, Iran, and published in the journal Nanomedicine. It demonstrated that the addition of silver to three specific antibiotics (vancomycin, amoxicillin and penicillin) almost magically renews their effectiveness against today’s most deadly pathogens, including MRSA!

Case #3: Taiwanese Clinical Study Proves Colloidal Silver By Itself Kills MRSA — This study was conducted by the Nanya Institute of Technology in Taiwan and published in the journal Colloids Surface B Biointerfaces. It demonstrated that colloidal silver kills both MRSA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, another deadly and extremely opportunistic superbug. In this study, a special colloidal silver solution was tested on contact surfaces where the deadly pathogens are known to colonize, and from which they can spread to humans. The silver solution proved to be completely effective against both the MRSA and Pseudomonas super-pathogens!

Case #4: Czech Clinical Study Proves Silver Particles Kill MRSA — This study was conducted at the Department of Physical Chemistry at Palacky University in the Czech Republic, and published in the prestigious Journal of Physical Chemistry B. The study demonstrated that “…silver particles with a narrow size distribution with an average size of 25 nm showed high antimicrobial and bactericidal activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including multi-resistant strains such MRSA.” The study further demonstrated that very low concentrations of silver could be utilized to destroy MRSA, as long as the silver particles were very small, averaging 25 nm.

Real-Life People Using Colloidal Silver Against MRSA!

The above clinical studies published in bona fide medical and science journals provide ample evidence that colloidal silver destroys the MRSA pathogen. And in just a moment, I’m going to tell you how to make all of the high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver you could ever need, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for just pennies, so you can help protect your family and friends against MRSA and other serious infections just like I do. Get colloidal silver today and protect yourself and your family.

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.

Stop Using Antibiotics; There is a Safe and natural Way to Heal

The Endless Uses of Colloidal Silver Spray

Supplements that have a silver component and medications such as Colloidal Silver spray are popularly used by people and largely recommended by doctors to patients for treatment of different problems. Silver is found through from the earth’s surface in its pure form and in a few minerals as well as an alloy with gold and other metals.

Silver is largely used in the medical sector for the treatment of infections, wounds, burns, cancer, diabetes and many other problems. Colloidal Silver spray can be used in many ways to achieve multiple health benefits. It is highly popular for healing burns rapidly without scarring and for having sterilizing properties. Therefore, it is highly recommended that this colloidal silver be used in drinking water during camping and traveling, especially in the third world countries and sterilize all equipment on which health matter such as toothbrushes, surgical equipments, shavers, razors, scissors, nail cutters etc. Moreover, Colloidal Silver spray can also be used to treat sunburn, razor nicks, wounds, abrasions, bandages, insect bites, rashes and bandages but the most amazing effect of this spray is seen when it is sprayed on garbage to reduce and prevent decay odors.

The spray is largely known for its antibacterial qualities and is thus recommended for use on kitchen items such as sponges, cutting boards and towels as it effectively kills bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella. In turn, this activity prevents gastrointestinal inflammation and food poisoning.  It can also be used as a preventative during canning and as treatment for acne, zits, dandruff, skin rashes, psoriasis, fungi, athletes foot, itch and even respiratory infections, flu, cold, rhino viruses and colon irrigation. Problems associated with mouth such as tooth decay, toothaches, bad breath and bacterial irritations can also be treated with Colloidal Silver spray. Usually, chlorine is used in places such as saunas, Jacuzzis, dishwashers, bath tubs, shower mats and swimming pools but this silver spray works equally amazingly. Places such as urinals, bowls, door knobs, toilet seats and sinks can also be treated with the silver spray to remove impurities and cleanse for a fresher look. The spray can be found easily in the market and bought for having a range of uses. From household appliances to washrooms to kitchen products to health and wellness to cleaning wellness equipment, this spray works wonders everywhere.

Colloidal Silver spray is a good value for money and if not in the market, it is definitely available on many websites and hence, can be bought from the internet. This would also bring a great deal of money saving and leave the buyers with something that would blow the mind away.

Coming soon to you for endless healing applications

NutraSilver, a leading colloidal silver product, will soon offer 25 PPM colloidal silver spray in 2 and 4 ounce spray bottles.  Customers are telling us to hurry since NutraSilver has proven effective on major illnesses through FDA-certified independent lab tests.

Antibiotics; Friend or Foe? The CDC weighs in..

Severe mis-use of antibiotics causes life-long problems

When patients demand antibiotics for a cold, the flu or any other viral infections, physicians sometimes appease them with a prescription. On other occasions, doctors prescribe antibiotics for infections most commonly caused by viruses but sometimes caused by bacteria or that progress to a bacterial infection.

Antibiotics kill germs — bacteria — and have no effect on viruses, making the above practices unnecessary and dangerous to health.

How much longer can humans continue to use antibiotics?

The overuse of antibiotics not only boosts health care costs but also causes bacterial resistance to the drugs. Examples include the growing difficulty in treating serious and sometimes fatal bacterial infections, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C diff), both of which are on the rise.

Researchers also are linking health problems during childhood to early use and overuse of antibiotics.

When given in the first six months of life, antibiotics are now being suspected of leading to obesity and even type 2 diabetes, with a lifelong ripple effect on health. Antibiotics also can alter a child’s immune system, although the health impacts are not yet clear.

PG graphic: Percentage of seniors using antibiotics

“Antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s most pressing public health threats,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states. More than 50 percent of antibiotics are unnecessarily prescribed in doctors’ offices for upper respiratory infections including coughs and colds, most of which are caused by viruses. Half of all antibiotics used in hospitals are unnecessary or inappropriate, the CDC says.

Reactions that children have to antibiotics “are the most common cause of emergency department visits for adverse drug events,” according to the CDC. Children can have as many as nine colds a year. Studies show that three of 10 children who receive outpatient health care for the common cold are prescribed unneeded antibiotics.

While those numbers have been improving in recent years, any unneeded use of antibiotics causes harm. For the past 70 years, antibiotics have been powerful tools, but their overuse is changing that.

“Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change in a way that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of antibiotics,” the CDC’s “Get Smart” program states. “Infections with resistant bacteria have become more common in health care and community settings, and many bacteria have become resistant to more than one type or class of antibiotics.”

It also is getting more difficult to develop new antibiotic drugs

“The problem is that we expect antibiotics to work for every illness, but they don’t,” the CDC says, calling for more effective antibiotic stewardship programs.

Arjun Srinivasan, associate director of CDC’s health-care-associated infection prevention programs, said the “Get Smart” programs are making progress in improving how antibiotics are used, but the problem is far from being resolved. Next week is CDC’s “Get Smart” week to raise national awareness about the problem.

Infants suffer long-term

Recent research completed at New York University’s Langone Medical Center has found that antibiotics prescribed for infants in the first six months of life can alter the baby’s metabolism in ways that can lead to obesity and even type 2 diabetes, with the chance of those health impacts resonating throughout the person’s life.

Studies completed under the leadership of Martin Blaser, chairman of the medical center’s department of medicine, determined that early doses of antibiotics kill off the natural flora in the gut, or the good bacteria that are not only necessary to defend against bacterial infections but also involved in metabolism.

Antibiotics can make you FAT!

Early doses of antibiotics intensify the metabolism, causing extraction of more calories than normal from food, leading to weight gain. Dr. Blaser said a 15-year-long epidemiological study in England found that children treated with antibiotics in the first months of life had a 22 percent higher rate of obesity than those who didn’t receive antibiotics during that time period. The findings, he said, may help explain the rise in type 2 diabetes in children.

A mouse study, done earlier by the team, reached similar conclusions about antibiotics altering the metabolism and immune system, he said. But evidence long has existed that antibiotics cause weight gain.

“One of the things that pointed me in this direction was the knowledge over the last 60 years that farmers were giving low doses of antibiotics to livestock to fatten them up,” Dr. Blaser said. “Antibiotics are growth promoters, and they established the principles that antibiotics early in life affect early development.”

The research also documented changes induced by antibiotics in different T-cell populations in the immune system.

“We are changing the composition of the natural flora and the change in composition is happening at a critical time in the child’s development,” Dr. Blaser said. “What happens in early life sets the stage for overall development for the rest of the person’s life.”

He’s now working to identify how changes in the natural flora, or “microbiota,” cause changes to metabolism and the immune system with hope of developing a probiotic treatment to restore the natural flora to counter or reduce the health impacts of antibiotics.

Dr. Srinivasan praised Dr. Blaser’s research that identifies other health concerns linked to the use of antibiotics. But the focus is on bacterial resistance.

“Certainly the situation with antibiotic resistance is getting worse,” he said. “Bacteria are developing resistance to more antibiotics, making it more difficult to treat patients or to find the right treatments for the right patients.”

“The problem is that we expect antibiotics to work for every illness, but they don’t,” the CDC says, calling for more effective antibiotic stewardship programs.

Arjun Srinivasan, associate director of CDC’s health-care-associated infection prevention programs, said the “Get Smart” programs are making progress in improving how antibiotics are used, but the problem is far from being resolved. Next week is CDC’s “Get Smart” week to raise national awareness about the problem.

Infants suffer long-term

Recent research completed at New York University’s Langone Medical Center has found that antibiotics prescribed for infants in the first six months of life can alter the baby’s metabolism in ways that can lead to obesity and even type 2 diabetes, with the chance of those health impacts resonating throughout the person’s life.

Studies completed under the leadership of Martin Blaser, chairman of the medical center’s department of medicine, determined that early doses of antibiotics kill off the natural flora in the gut, or the good bacteria that are not only necessary to defend against bacterial infections but also involved in metabolism.

Antibiotics can make you FAT!

Early doses of antibiotics intensify the metabolism, causing extraction of more calories than normal from food, leading to weight gain. Dr. Blaser said a 15-year-long epidemiological study in England found that children treated with antibiotics in the first months of life had a 22 percent higher rate of obesity than those who didn’t receive antibiotics during that time period. The findings, he said, may help explain the rise in type 2 diabetes in children.

A mouse study, done earlier by the team, reached similar conclusions about antibiotics altering the metabolism and immune system, he said. But evidence long has existed that antibiotics cause weight gain.

“One of the things that pointed me in this direction was the knowledge over the last 60 years that farmers were giving low doses of antibiotics to livestock to fatten them up,” Dr. Blaser said. “Antibiotics are growth promoters, and they established the principles that antibiotics early in life affect early development.”

The research also documented changes induced by antibiotics in different T-cell populations in the immune system.

“We are changing the composition of the natural flora and the change in composition is happening at a critical time in the child’s development,” Dr. Blaser said. “What happens in early life sets the stage for overall development for the rest of the person’s life.”

He’s now working to identify how changes in the natural flora, or “microbiota,” cause changes to metabolism and the immune system with hope of developing a probiotic treatment to restore the natural flora to counter or reduce the health impacts of antibiotics.

Dr. Srinivasan praised Dr. Blaser’s research that identifies other health concerns linked to the use of antibiotics. But the focus is on bacterial resistance.

“Certainly the situation with antibiotic resistance is getting worse,” he said. “Bacteria are developing resistance to more antibiotics, making it more difficult to treat patients or to find the right treatments for the right patients.”

Exposing The Cause of All Inflammation, Allergies and Respiratory Infections

According to new research published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, a common bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is involved in some cases of respiratory inflammation that can lead to allergies, asthma or other serious respiratory conditions.

Here’s what an article published on the website of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology had to say

about the study:

“Could some cases of asthma actually be caused by an allergic reaction to a common environmental bacteria?  New research findings published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggests that this idea may not be as far-fetched as it seems.
In a research report appearing in the February 2012 print issue, researchers show a link between common environmental bacteria and airway inflammation.
Specifically, their research suggests that some strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa cause white blood cells to produce very high levels of histamine, which in turn leads to inflammation, a hallmark symptom of asthma.”
Of course, excessive histamine release is also a hallmark symptom of common allergies, too, particularly the red, itchy eyes, puffy skin, runny nose and sometimes painful, swollen nasal passages.
The article goes on to admit that modern medicine doesn’t really have a good handle on what causes such allergic reactions.  But they hope this most recent study will shed some light on the possible role of bacteria such as Pseudomona aeruginosa in triggering such reactions:
“Despite advances in diagnosing and treating the symptoms of asthma and allergy, our understanding of the underlying initiating events remains elusive,” said John Wherry, Ph.D., Deputy Editor of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology.
“This report helps shed light on how an ‘everyday organism’ might trigger asthma and allergy from an immune cell type not normally thought to be involved in allergic disease.”

Colloidal Silver to the Rescue!

What the researchers are not yet talking about is the fact that numerous published clinical studies and reports have proven the Pseudomonas aeruginosa pathogenic highly susceptible to antimicrobial silver, including colloidal silver!
Indeed, Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the very same bacteria that tends to infect the skin of burn victims, leading to practically unstoppable skin infections that ultimately result in death. 
But various forms of antimicrobial silver – including silver compounds such as dilute silver nitrate and silver sulfadiazine cream — have been used in hospital burn wards for decades to stop Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in their tracks.

Indeed, these silver-based products have saved literally tens of thousands of burn victims from suffering painful, agonizing deaths that would otherwise be caused by the Pseudomonas aeruginosa pathogen!

Connecting the Dots

The fact that Cystic Fibrosis patients often suffer from Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in their lungs is nothing new.  Doctors have known of this for decades.
And recent studies have also demonstrated that Pseudomonas aeruginosa are increasingly involved in C.O.P.D., i.e., Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.  (See study here.)

So why not also in respiratory conditions such as allergy and asthma?

Way back in Nov-Dec of 1955, a study titled “Bronchial Asthma Caused By Pseudomonas aeruginosa Diagnosed By Bronchoscopic Examination” was published in journal Annals of Allergy.
But in spite of that older study, until only recently the standard response from medical science has been “There is no known association between asthma and Pseudomonas aeruginosainfections.”
I’m quite surprised researchers have not connected the dots by now and realized that inflammatory lung conditions like Cystic Fibrosis, other lung conditions like C.O.P.D.,  and conditions of respiratory inflammation such as asthma and allergy might have a single common bacterial connection.
After all, it seems the more scientists look, the more they find pathogenic microorganisms behind ailments people have suffered from (often needlessly) for years.

Annoying Sinus Allergy Condition Resolved!

“…an employee had a severe (annoying to me) sinus condition that she had been fighting for about 3-4 years with antibiotics that would work for a while then come back.
She had it so bad she actually had a Family Medical Leave Act ‘sick leave’ to protect her attendance (reporting off from work), and from losing her job because of it.
I gave her some info on colloidal silver in general and she ended up trying some (pouring some into her nasal cavities).

After a week or two her condition is all but gone, with just a few ‘allergy flare ups’ which are nothing compared to how miserable she was and annoying to us with her constant snorting/blowing her nose.”

Colloidal Silver Truths Revealed

Ingesting Colloidal Silver

Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption. Colloidal silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel after several days. If routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, some recommend a regular daily intake as a protection. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of colloidal silver may hasten healing, reducing the possibility of scar tissue and infection. It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that the lives of millions of people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.

Chronic or Serious Conditions

If your body is extremely ill or toxic, do not be in a hurry to clear up everything at once. If pathogens are killed off too quickly, the body’s five eliminatory channels (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs and bowel) may be temporarily overloaded, causing flu-like conditions, headache, extreme fatigue, dizziness, nausea or aching muscles. Ease off on the colloidal silver to a smaller amount and increase your non-tap water intake. Regular bowel movements are a must in order to relieve the discomforts of detoxification. Resolve to reduce sugar and saturated fats from the diet, and exercise more. Given the opportunity, the body’s natural ability to heal may amaze you.

Topical Uses

Some have used colloidal silver in a nasal spray mister – to reach the sinuses and nasal passages. Spray bottles have been used for topical use on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, skin, sore throat, eyes, burns, etc. Colloidal silver is painless on cuts, abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils for a stuffy nose, and even in a baby’s eyes because, unlike some antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells. It’s excellent as an underarm deodorant, since most underarm odor is caused by bacteria breaking down substances released by the sweat glands!

Some Common Uses of Colloidal Silver

Natural health practitioners have for years recommended taking colloidal silver daily, for four days, to establish a level, then dose daily for maintenance (proportional to body weight for children). After six weeks, a pause of several weeks has also been recommended by some natural healing arts doctors. Also, colloidal silver can be applied directly to cuts, scrapes, and open sores, or on a bandage for warts. It can be applied on eczema, itches, acne or bug bites. To purify water, add one drop per liter, shake well and wait six minutes. Mixed this way, it’s tasteless. It is not an allopathic poison.

Veterinary and Garden Use

Colloidal silver has worked just as well on pets of all kinds. Used in proportion to body weight, it should bring the same results. In the garden, field or greenhouse, add enough to the water or soil – and the plants will do the rest.

Tolerance To Disease Organisms

We have all heard of the “super-germs” that are resistant to most modern antibiotics. Some believe that single-celled germs cannot mutate into silver-resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver would develop through mutation. Also, colloidal silver has not been demonstrated to interact or interfere with other medicines being taken. Inside the body, silver apparently does not form toxic compounds or react with anything other than a germ’s oxygen-metabolizing enzyme. Colloidal silver may truly be a safe, natural remedy for many of mankind’s ills. Additionally, there has never been a drug interaction reported between colloidal silver and any other medication. It’s difficult to overdose – unless large amounts are ingested. Colloidal silver has been reported by

users to be both a remedy and a prevention for numerous infections, colds, flus, and fermentations due to various bacteria, viruses or fungi, even the non-apparent low-grade, general body infections many people have. Living organisms are in the colloidal chemical state, not the crystalline state. Substances already in that form may be more readily assimilated by the body.

Colloidal silver is the most useable form of a reputedly effective germ fighter

  • 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.”

Antibiotic Spreads MRSA – Proof from the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotheraphy

Common antibiotic boosts spread of deadly superbug

New research has found that cases of MRSA – a bacteria that causes serious infections of the skin, blood, lungs and bones – decreased when prescriptions of ciprofloxacin were reduced, suggesting that the common antibiotic is helping the deadly superbug spread through hospitals.

The University of London research- published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy – also challenged the widely held belief that improved hygiene and hand-washing significantly hinders the spread of the bug, the Daily Star reported.

For the study, researchers led by St George’s, University of London, tracked MRSA infection over 10 years from 1999 to 2009 at St George”s Hospital, looking at how it has adapted to survive in a hospital environment and what factors affected its prevalence.

Ciprofloxacin, a commonly used antibiotic, was found to be the culpret

They found that a significant drop in MRSA rates coincided with a reduction in hospital prescriptions of ciprofloxacin, the most commonly prescribed antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone family.

MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, causes hospital-acquired infection and is resistant to all of the penicillin-type antibiotics frequently used in hospitals to prevent and treat infection.

Hand-washing and strict hygiene procedures do reduce the spread of the bug, but the St George”s study found that they appeared to have only a small effect on lowering MRSA infection rates during the period studied.

Conclusive study

During a short period at the hospital, ciprofloxacin prescriptions fell from 70-100 daily doses for every 1,000 occupied beds to about 30 doses. In the same timeframe, the number of patients identified by the laboratory to be infected with MRSA fell by half, from an average of about 120 a month to around 60.

Over the final two years of the study, both the drug prescription level and MRSA rates remained at the reduced levels. It is not known how many of the cases examined in the study were serious.

St George”s said the research looked at whether other factors such as improved infection control measures might have contributed to the decrease in infection.

However, during a four-year period when more stringent infection control policies were introduced – including improved cleaning and hand-washing, and screening patients for MRSA on arrival at hospital – the only major reduction in MRSA infection rates coincided with the reduction in ciprofloxacin prescriptions, it said.

Whether you have MRSA internally or topically, gone untreated, MRSA can be fatal. For educational purposes, we have provided several pictures so you can better identify MRSA.

This is a common MRSA picture of pimple-like MRSA infection

Too often, MRSA creates a crater-like lesion on the skin.

Horrible looking boils that will probably be lanced to eliminate the pus.

Morbid to look at, some people actually wait too long to seek treatment.

This is what MRSA looks like under the microscope.

MRSA does not care where it shows itself.

Unfortunately, MRSA does infect innocent babies as well.

Gone untreated, MRSA can have devastating effects on newborns.
