Prior to the use of penicillin and sulfa drugs during World War II, Medicine's most commonly utilized infection fighter was Colloidal Silver (a solution of extremely fine particles of pure silver suspended in water). A powerful germicidal, silver is an exceptional metal in that it is non-toxic to the human body, but lethal to over 650 types of bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and molds. Conventional pharmaceutical antibiotics are typically effective against only 6 or 7 types of bacteria and are useless against viruses.
Silver filters are found in the water fountains of every airliner and space craft to guarantee germ-free water. Silver is used by the Soviets to sterilize recycled water aboard the Mir Space Station. Silver is being used to replace chlorine in swimming pools, because it does not sting the eyes and offers greater germicidal action. Laboratory tests have shown that Colloidal Silver will kill most bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses within 2-6 minutes of contact. Many chronic infections, from pyorrhea to vaginal yeast infections, conditions which are often resistant to drug therapy, will quickly clear up with Colloidal Silver.
It had always been a great mystery during the Middle Ages that while untold thousands of peasants died from the Bubonic Plague, most of the aristocracy remained untouched. Why? The aristocracy remained infection-free because their water and wine was stored in silver vessels which allowed silver atoms to migrate into the liquid and afford germicidal action. They also ate off silver plates, used silver utensils, and drank from silver goblets.
During the last century, American Pioneers always put a silver dollar into a bucket of fresh milk in order to slow down its clabbering and souring.
Despite years of research to find a superior pharmaceutical product,
silver is still considered the most effective germ fighter and promoter
of rapid healing in cases of severe burns. UCLA medical labs found it effectively
disabled every virus they had in the lab!
As stated above, Colloidal Silver is lethal to over 650 types of bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and molds. However, it is completely non-toxic to the human body. For several decades, silver has proven itself in the treatment of burns, and eye, ear, nose, throat, vaginal, rectal, and urinary tract infections. Silver has been prescribed as an adjunct treatment for reproductive disorders in women and the circulatory system, as well as a treatment for AIDS infective complications. It has been used as a remedy for allergies, boils, ulcers, leisons, thyroid conditions, infantile diseases, parasites, wounds of the cornea, enlarged prostate, warts, bladder inflammation, infections of the eustachian tubes, sleepwalking and anorexia nervosa. Colloidal silver also acts as a tissue regenerator by stimulating the production of de-differentiating cells, which promotes the replacement of specialized cells.
The following is only a partial list of the more than 650 disease conditions
for which colloidal silver has demonstrated proven clinical amelioration:

Few Unique Plus Traditional Uses For Silver Colloid", by Dr. Bob Beck.
The properties of silver have been known for thousands of years. Throughout the ages, silver was the hidden ingredient utilized by knowledgeable healers to fight any type of infection. It was not until the late 1800's that Western scientists were able to prove what had been known in other civilizations for thousands of years--that silver was a proven germ fighter!
After researchers discovered that the body prefers to utilize colloidal minerals, the endless possibilities which could occur from the use of colloids in medicine were exploited. Colloidal Silver proved to be enormously effective against infectious organisms and extremely safe to use, without the negative side effects associated with drugs. As a result, Colloidal Silver was widely used in medicine as one of the main-stays of antimicrobial treatment. It became the choice of medical practitioners.
Throughout the early 1900's Colloidal Silver rapidly gained recognition as one of the best infection-preventive agents, but unfortunately its availability was limited due to the high cost of colloidal silver production combined with the fact that colloidal silver could not be patented. This profit limitation prompted the development of more profitable infection-fighting drugs. Silver was ignored while new patented antibiotic drugs became the choice of medical treatment. However, as is common when we deviate from Nature's path, serious unforseen problems were inevitable. Today, fifty years after the advent of patented pharmaceutical antibiotics, many types of bacteria, which were once susceptible to these drugs, have mutated to drug-resistant strains.
Over the years, the medical establishment has reported on the new strains of "Super Bugs" that are resistant to every pharmaceutical antibiotic. Newsweek Magazine reported in March 28, 1994 that in 1992, 13,000 hospital patients died of infections that were resistant to every drug hospital physicians tried. Also, it is a well known fact that pharmaceutical antibiotics are detrimental to the natural flora of the colon. Colloidal Silver does not disturb this very necessary environment.
Fortunately, the timely re-emergence of Colloidal Silver--due to new
production technology--may prove to be one of the best remedies the public
now has to protect themselves from disease, new and old.
Simply stated, the problem is multiple drug resistant (MDR) strains of bacteria are becoming commonplace. Within five years of the widespread use of penicillin after World War ll, scientists were discovering that bacteria such as Staphylococcus were developing a resistance to penicillin. Drug companies have poured millions of dollars into new research during the 60s, 70s, and 80s, to develop new antibiotics which could overcome these resistant strains. It appears that every disease-causing bacterium has strains that can resist at least one, if not most of pharmaceuticals' antibiotics.
The prophylactic overuse of drug antibiotics is giving life to the spread of mutant microbes. Since the 1970s, various studies have concluded that 50 to 60 percent of all outpatient antibiotic prescriptions are inappropriate. Other studies have found that seven in ten Americans receive antibiotics when they seek treatment for common colds. Dr. Lee Green of Family Practitioners at the University of Michigan states, "We have a tradition of prescribing antibiotics to anybody who looks sick." As a result of the overuse of antibiotics, sales have nearly doubled since the mid 1980s. Likewise, drug-resistant infections have also increased.
Bacterial tests are not covered in many insurance policies, encouraging doctors to make sloppy diagnosis. Drug companies encourage the situation by promotion of their products through extensive advertising and providing doctors with free samples.
Adding to the dilemma is the fact that many patients do not use the antibiotics their doctors prescribe in accordance with the doctor's instruction. Many stop taking their medication after just a few days when it has killed many of the most susceptible microbes, leaving hardened bacterial survivors to flourish. Aside from being harder to treat, the resistant microbes can actually spread their immunity to different bacteria! An already serious problem is compounded when many patients save their unused drugs for later use.
Recently, Dr. Thomas Beam of the Buffalo, New York VA Medical Center, summarized this health dilemma completely when he stated, "RESISTANT INFECTIONS ARE PRESENT IN EVERY HOSPITAL AND NURSING HOME." Super bugs are scattered everywhere including hospitals. No one has an exclusive on them. Patients are being stricken with drug resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, a bacteria that infects surgical wounds and can cause pneumonia and systemic blood infections.
The Los Angeles Times stated on October 23, 1994 that "in the last decade, a broad resistance to antibiotics has begun to emerge. And because bacteria can transfer genes among themselves, experts only expect the resistance to grow. The potential nightmare is an Andromeda strain, which is immune to all antibiotics and could wreak havoc." (article, Arsenal of Antibiotics Failing as Resistant Bacteria Develop).
Drugs such as penicillin and tetracycline lost their power over staph in the 50s and 60s. Methicilllin, another antibiotic, is now experiencing resistance. It was recently reported that in some 20 percent of nation's gonorrhea is now resistant to one or more antibiotics. A startling proportion of TB now resists the drug, Isoniazid.
There is an enormous health crisis in the making, and pharmaceutical
antibiotics do not hold the answer. It is blatently obvious to anyone who
does research on this subject that new emerging diseases and super bugs
(not to mention the threat of biological attack from terrorist groups)
are more of a threat now than ever before. Colloidal Silver can provide
people with additional, non-prescriptive immunity armor to protect themselves.
And unlike pharmaceutical drugs, no pathogen has ever develop a resistance
to Colloidal Silver.
While having gone unnoticed by a large portion of the population, there are numerous new emerging diseases which are beginning to manifest themselves with greater and greater frequency at ever widening locations across the country. In addition to this, the threat of biological attack from nations such as Iraq, as well as various terrorist groups has become increasingly prominent. Recently, news stories about terrorists using biological agents like Anthrax, to emerging diseases such as Flesh-Eating Bacteria, Multiple Drug Resistant Staph, Hanta Virus, Mad Cow Disease, Pfiesteria ("Red Tide"), Meningitis, Australian Flu, Bird Flu, E-coli, etc. have become commonplace.
Moreover, diseases that we were previously controlable with pharmaceutical antibiotics are adapting themselves and becoming resistant to virtually all of our pharmaceutical drugs. A good example is the dangerous strain of the common staph germ, Staphylococcus aureus. It now has doctors worried because it has developed a resistance to pharmaceuticals' most powerful antibiotic, Vancomycin (CNN May 28, Aug 22, & Sept 5, 1997). The percentage of Staphylococci infections resistant to penicillin in 1960 was 13; the percentage resistant in 1997 was 99. Clearly, a non-pharmaceutical solution is required.
Unfortunately, while some television shows, such as Dateline and Nova, have examined the issue of emerging diseases, the true extent of the danger is barely perceived by the public. The problem goes unnoticed, so more and more people remain unaware, unprotected, and vulnerable.
In some cases, written articles and web sites which promote colloidal silver present conflicting information on a given issue. Also, some news articles or web sites have an agenda of debunking the use of colloidal silver altogether. The hidden hand behind the latter is usually pharmaceutical companies or orthodox medical interests who wish to make all alternative therapies and natural medicines go away (for obvious reasons).While we don't claim to be the final authority on colloidal silver, the dissemination of honest information is our goal. Our opinion on some of the more contentious issues:
Toxicity & Concentration
The weight of historical and laboratory evidence seem to indicate that there is no known toxic concentration level of Colloidal Silver in normal use. While some writers will indicate that 5-10 ppm (parts per million) or 10-20 ppm is the "ideal concentration", numerous studies have shown that 30, 40, 50, 60 ppm or even higher concentrations are nonetheless completey non-toxic. It has been our experience that higher concentrations might speed healing in those cases where the colloidal silver can remain in direct contact with the pathogenic organism, as with pyorrhea, acne, or vaginal infection, for example. Systemically, however, lower concentrations seem to work as well as higher concentrations for general prophylactic immunity boosting.
