Hi Ho, Silver

Hi Ho, Silver

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

Great history!

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

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

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

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

Fast forward to now

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BUBONIC PLAGUE:

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

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

COLLOIDAL SILVER NOW USED IN MAJOR BURN CENTERS:

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

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

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

PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

CRITICS:

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

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

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

GROWING HEALTH CARE CRISIS:

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

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

“MIGHTIEST GERM FIGHTERS”

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

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

FOODS DEPLETED IN NUTRITION:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HOW DOES COLLOIDAL SILVER WORK?

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

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

APPLICATIONS FOR COLLOIDAL SILVER:

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

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

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

APPLICATION OF COLLOIDAL SILVER:

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

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

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

This is Why Family and Friends Are Dying From eColi – A MUST Read

What is E. coli and Why Does it Matter?

eColi food poisoning in children can be fatal

You can’t hardly turn on the news and not see something about another outbreak of E. coli. Outbreaks happen all the time. But there’s more to that story.

Here we sit all comfortable thinking that the most recent outbreak has no chance of effecting you and me when reality is that E. coli is all over our food and we can’t do much to avoid it.

Millions of people in the USA get some form of eColi (food poisoning) every year.

E. coli is rampant throughout our food supply

I remember when my grandson got food poisoning while on a fishing trip; poor fella was “going” at both ends. I gave him 10 drops of NutraSilver and within an hour he was asking for pizza! Seriously!

And what did you do to get eColi?

All you did was go out to a restaurant with your family and have a nice meal. A few hours later all of you began to have diarrhea and began to vomit. This kind of food poisoning can be fatal.

You go to the emergency room at your local hospital and they determined that you have contracted E. coli, caused by a bacterium that is normally found in the lower intestine that was mistakenly in your meal.

If you prefer not to put antibiotics into your body, as many people do, we have a wonderful natural alternative that effectively destroys E. coli returning you back to your normal, cheerful self. We actually guarantee that you will be delighted with the results or, we will refund your money.

Confirmed; eColi is in our beef, chicken and pork products

Food-borne illness involving eColi is transmitted by consuming or coming in contact with infected meat, poultry or pork products. It can also be passed by fecal residues on vegetables and from infected individuals that do not properly wash their hands before preparing food. Somehow, animal “poop” got into your meal.

One severe complication associated with E. coli infection is hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). The infection produces toxic substances that destroy red blood cells, causing kidney injury. HUS can require intensive care, kidney dialysis, and transfusions.

Our CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of food-borne diseases like E. coli.

Most outbreaks in the United States have been associated with animal fecal matter or raw or undercooked ground beef, unpasteurized milk, unpasteurized juice and leafy greens (spinach, lettuce, etc.).

Each year in the United States, E. coli infections cause approximately 265,000 illnesses. Approximately 40 percent of these infections are caused by the strain E. coli O157:H7, a strain that is part of the shiga toxin-producing group of E. coli bacteria (STEC). The other 60 percent of E. coli cases are caused by non-0157:H7 shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC).

Good hygiene, especially frequent and thorough hand washing, is important to prevent the spread of the disease, particularly after using the rest room, after changing diapers, after touching animals and before eating, drinking or preparing food.

Any child with diarrhea or bloody diarrhea may have E.coli infection. Since STEC can be easily transmitted, parents should not send sick children to day care or to school. Day care centers and schools should send sick children home to avoid person-to-person spread, especially among diapered children.

E. Coli That Cause Urinary Tract Infections are Now Resistant to Antibiotics

eColi bacteria

Thanks to antibiotics, we tend to think of urinary tract infections as no big deal. Pop some cipro, and you’re done. A good thing, too—if the E. coli that usually cause UTIs crawl up the urinary tract, they can cause kidney failure and fatal blood poisoning.

But antibiotics may not be saving us from UTIs for very much longer.

Scientists tracking UTIs from 2000 to 2010 found a dramatic uptick in cases caused by E. coli that do not respond to the drugs that are our first line of defense. In examining more than 12 million urine analyses from that period, they found that cases caused by E. coli resistant to ciprofloxacin grew five-fold, from 3% to 17.1% of cases. And E. coli resistant to the drug trimethoprim-sulfame-thoxazole jumped from 17.9% to 24.2%. These are two of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics used to treat UTIs. When they are not effective, doctors must turn to more toxic drugs, and the more those drugs are used, the less effective they in turn become. When those drugs stop working, doctors will be left with a drastically reduced toolkit with which to fight infection. But you have access to NutraSilver, a natural mineral, that is proven to kill eColi in FDA-certified dependent lab tests.

Might a natural approach to eColi interest you?

In FDA/ISO-certified in-vitro lab tests, NutraSilver decimated a colony of 8.2 billion cells of eColi in 30 minutes, killing 99.999%.  Dr. Micheal Sinclair, CEO of MicroCheck labs, stated “The NutraSilver product at 3 drops in one liter of water is extremely effective against these water-borne bacterial pathogens killing 99.999% of the organisms after only 30 minutes of contact time.”

We invite you to try NutraSilver, a natural antibiotic, and experience the rapid healing, increase in energy and elimination of brain fog.

If we can kill MRSA, why can’t they?

MRSA is killing more people than AIDS!  

It is rampant in hospitals, gyms and within the community.  Most antibiotics are no longer effective against this kind of Staph infection, so medical science is frantically searching for a non-toxic solution.  In FDA-certified independent in-vitro lab tests, NutraSilver killed 1.33 billion cells of MRSA in 60 seconds at the rate of 99.9999% with only one drop. If you took

MRSA Staph bacterium

the same amount of MRSA and placed it in a vat of antibiotics, nothing would happen!  MRSA does not care about Methicillin or Vancomyacin any longer!

Different Approach, Better Results

They are trying to turn off MRSA’s ability to reproduce with antibiotics; we have succeeded by switching of MRSA’s ability to breath! You can read the entire lab report here.

Where Does MRSA Originate?

Recent reports strongly indicate that MRSA is deeply embedded in our animal food supply. “About two years ago, dozens of workers at a large chicken hatchery in Arkansas began experiencing mysterious skin rashes, with painful lumps scattered over their hands, arms, and legs.

“They hurt real bad,” says Joyce Long, 48, a 32-year veteran of the hatchery, where until recently, workers handled eggs and chicks with bare hands. “When we went and got cultured, doctors told us we had a superbug.”

Who is Watching Our Food Supply?

MRSA Boil

Did any food safety agency test for MRSA in this plant’s chickens, which were then sold to the public and served on American dinner tables? Did any government organization determine the source of the outbreak? Calls to the USDA, CDC, and Arkansas Department of Health yielded a no to both questions; the poultry company that owns the operation did not respond to multiple requests for a comment from Prevention. Yet in recent years, studies have found MRSA in retail cuts of pork, chicken, beef, and other meats in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Facts about MRSA

MRSA is so common in the United States that it accounts for more than half of all soft-tissue and skin infections in ERs. The CDC estimates that invasive MRSA infections (those that entered the bloodstream) number more than 94,000 a year. Even more troubling, if you add up the other types of illnesses MRSA can cause, including urinary tract infections, pneumonia, and inpatient skin infections, the total could be 8 to 11 times more than that, reports a study by epidemiologist William Jarvis, MD, of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. The numbers are high and rising: From 1996 to 2005, MRSA-related hospitalizations increased nearly tenfold.

Antibiotics in Animals

Scientists know that antibiotic overuse in humans caused ordinary staph to become resistant, says Levy. And they know the large amounts of meds used by agriculture caused other bacteria, such as E. coli and salmonella, to develop resistance. “Now we’re looking at the relationship between antibiotic use on farms and MRSA,” he says.

Facts about MRSA

One reason the CDC and the National Pork Board must guess about transmission rates — and why we don’t know exactly how many MRSA-related infections occur — is that the federal government doesn’t collect data on MRSA outbreaks, says Karen Steuer, director of government operations for the Pew Environment Group.  According to the US Government Accountability Office, there’s no testing for MRSA on farms. And the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System tests just 400 retail cuts of meat each month for four drug-resistant bacteriawhich don’t include MRSA.

“This is our second order & we’re devoted customers for LIFE. I was extremely sick with my MRSA since 2005. Doctors just seemed to be killing me the more they treated me. I only had one so-called “good” week per month that I felt “OK.” We found NutraSilver mentioned on a MRSA discussion board, that day, on April 30th, we ordered. I need to tell you…I have not had one single down day since I’ve been taking NutraSilver. I no longer take 6 hour naps during the day (after a full nights rest), my rashes & boils disappeared entirely, sinus congestion & migraines no longer hit me (NOT even ONE since I started this), I no longer have any monster-sized gland swelling in my neck or bad ear infections (which I had 3 WEEKS out of each month)–and my energy is restored back to how it felt BEFORE I acquired MRSA in ’05. I am able to spend time doing things I love…most importantly, I am now able to spend A LOT of wake time with my teenage son! “

“I am a 38 year old female, single parent… I was terrified, hopeless & knew that I was inching closer to the grave, I prepared my Last Will & Testament and I put a couple Life Insurance policies on myself. I was very depressed from it all. I couldn’t help but be anything but with the thought of leaving my son behind.

“Today…I sleep through the night, I am up early in the morning, no naps..I stay on the go, I am swimming 100 laps 6 days a week on top of my daily cardio & strength training. I haven’t had ANY energy to exercise since 2005!! I’m eating as a vegetarian now and since I ordered your product the first time around, I’ve lost 65 lbs that I had gained while I was down ill…with 20 more to go! 19 Hospital visit and NutraSilver was the only thing that helped eliminate MRSA from my body

“NutraSilver has brought me back to LIFE. It’s literally wiped out ALL of my MRSA symptoms & I now keep it combined with a Pro-biotic and Golden Seal. I maintain taking NutraSilver at a dose 40 drops a day. My son and I cannot EVER thank you enough..YOU helped save my life when 19 hospital stays & the strongest of medication couldn’t even make a dent!
