7 Deadly Microbes Nailed by Colloidal Silver


7 Deadly Microbes Destroyed by Colloidal Silver


at Very Low Concentrations: Study

A 2011 study demonstrates that very low concentrations of colloidal silver produced “pronounced antibacterial effect” against six well-known and potentially deadly disease-causing microbes, and even against one microbe used to simulate anthrax in germ warfare tests.

What does this mean to you? It means colloidal silver can help protect you and your family against six of the most common disease-causing microbes known to man – microbes that produce millions of infections and hundreds of thousands of deaths every single year. What’s more, colloidal silver may well protect against deadly germ warfare pathogens, as well.

Read my short article below to learn which well-known – and sometimes deadly – disease-causing microbes have been clinically proven to be eradicated by colloidal silver in lab studies, even at extremely low concentrations, and why this information is so important for you to know…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for TheSilverEdge.com

In a clinical study published in the Digest Journal of Nanomaterials and Biostructures, researchers from the Metallurgical and Material Science Engineering Department at Dokuz Eylul University in Turkey documented that colloidal silver demonstrated a pronounced antibacterial effect against seven pathogens.

What’s more, the colloidal silver evidenced this pronounced antibacterial effect in very low concentrations, i.e., 2-4 ppm.

The seven pathogens tested were:

  • Escherichia coli
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Candida albicans
  • Salmonella typhimurium
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Bacillus subtilis

Silver: A Noble Metal

One of the most interesting aspects of the above-linked study, for me, is that the researchers correctly refer to silver as a “noble metal,” rather than a “heavy metal.”

The term “noble metal” is the correct scientific nomenclature for silver. After all, silver is in the same family of metals as platinum, palladium and gold (all noble metals) and NOT in the family of metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, cobalt and arsenic, which are known as the “heavy metals”.

Unfortunately, unscrupulous groups and individuals who are known naysayers of colloidal silver continue to refer to silver as a “heavy metal” – this, as a sensationalistic means of scaring people into believing it’s a cumulative toxic poison, when it is not.

Why Bacillus Subtillis?

Another interesting thing is that the researchers in the above-linked study tested colloidal silver against six well-known, disease-causing microbes, plus one relatively non-pathogenic microbe known as Bacillus subtilis.

The researchers don’t explain why they includedBacillus subtilis among the bacteria tested, as it is generally considered to be a benign microbe except in cases of immuno-compromised individuals.

While Bacillus subtilis has been implicated in rare cases of eye infection, meningitis and bacteremia, as well as some cases of nosocomial infection (i.e., of surgical wounds in hospitals), it’s actually a common soil bacteria that’s considered to be ubiquitous in the environment, and generally harmless.

However, the unusual hardiness of this microbe may have been the reason it was included in the study, as it is considered to be very difficult to kill.

You see, although relatively harmless, Bacillus subtilis has also been used as a “simulant” in germ warfare studies for its first cousin, Bacillus anthracis– the deadly anthrax pathogen.

In other words, Bacillus subtilis is generally thought to be as difficult to kill as anthrax. According to oneresearcherBacillus subtilis has many of the same protective characteristics as the deadly anthrax pathogen:

Like anthrax, Bacillus subtilis has the capability to become dormant. It does this by producing endospores – a kind of armour plating, which makes it impervious to temperature variations, desiccation, ultra-violet light, starvation and some disinfectants.”

Apparently, it’s the formation of these endospores that gives Bacillus subtilis its unusual resistance to toxic chemicals and physical agents, including common disinfectants.

Demonstrating that colloidal silver easily stopsBacillus subtils in its tracks is essentially the equivalent of demonstrating that it can also stop anthrax or other serious and difficult-to-kill pathogens, as well.

Indeed, in the book The Hot Zone, author Richard Preston tells the true story of how the U.S. Army stopped a deadly Ebola outbreak at a research facility using formaldehyde gas. Not wanting to risk lives testing for the presence of Ebola, they first inoculated the facility with Bacillus subtilis, knowing how extremely difficult it is to kill.

After releasing the formaldehyde gas into the facility for three days, they then tested for signs of liveBacillus subtilis, and found none. Therefore, they concluded, the deadly Ebola was gone, too. And of course, it was.

Now, researchers have demonstrated that colloidal silver – even in very small concentrations – is also effective against Bacillus subtilis.

You can learn more about the use of colloidal silver for deadly germ warfare pathogens in my previous article, Colloidal Silver and Biological Warfare.

Colloidal Silver Effective Against “All Tested Microbes”

According to the researchers, concentrations as low as 2-4 ppm demonstrated “pronounced antibacterial effect” against the seven pathogens tested.

The researchers concluded that, “all seven tested microorganisms were completely inhibited at the concentration of 2-4 μg/ml of nano silver.” (That’s a mere 2 to 4 ppm colloidal silver.)

While these were admittedly test tube studies, and not human studies, this research demonstrates the fact that very low concentrations of colloidal silver are indeed able to kill some of today’s most prevalent and serious disease-causing pathogens, as well as one of the most extremely hardy and difficult-to-kill of all microbes, Bacillus subtilis.

Not a Peep…

Colloidal silver’s astonishing and clinically proven ability to destroy these well-known disease-causing pathogens at very low concentrations should be headline news around the world.

But thanks to Big Pharma’s government-enforced lock on prescription antibiotic drugs, you’ve probably never heard a peep about this study, or about any of the other dozens of clinical studies on colloidal silverthat have amply demonstrated its undeniable infection-fighting benefits.

According to the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths, the rate of infections striking Americans in hospitals alone is now astronomical:

“The CDC claims that 1.7 million people contract infections in U.S. hospitals each year. In fact, the truth is several times that number.

The proof is in the data. One of the fastest growing infections is methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a superbug that doesn’t respond to most antibiotics.

In 1993, there were fewer than 2,000 MRSA infections in U.S. hospitals. By 2005, the figure had shot up to 368,000 according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

By June, 2007, 2.4 percent of all patients had MRSA infections, according to the largest study of its kind, which was published in the American Journal of Infection Control. That would mean 880,000 victims a year.

That’s from one superbug. Imagine the number of infections from bacteria of all kinds.”

I might add, imagine the number of infections if you included those that have taken place outside of the hospital environment, as well as inside.

We are talking staggering numbers of annual infections that would make your head spin.

So you’d think that medical authorities would be screaming from the rooftops about the studies demonstrating colloidal silver to be effective againstE. coliStaphylococcus aureusCandida albicans,Salmonella typhimuriumPseudomonas aeruginosaand Klebsiela pneumonia.

After all, these six pathogens cause some of the most serious and commonly acquired of all infections, costing hundreds of billions of dollars per year in health care and leaving tens of thousands of people dead in their wakes.

But you won’t hear a word on the nightly news about the clinically proven ability of colloidal silver to kill these pathogens. And that means you have toeducate yourself.

Here’s links to a handful of short articles on colloidal silver and its proven ability to decimate the six disease-causing pathogens discussed above:

  • E. coli is well-known as one of the most common food poisoning pathogens in the world today, resulting in 265,000 illnesses and about 100 deaths annually in the U.S. alone. For more information on using colloidal silver against E. coli, click the link.
  • Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most common causes of skin infections, and is well-known for its ability to mutate into MRSA, the potentially deadly form of Staph which kills up to 93,000 people per year in the U.S. alone – more than all annual AIDS mortalities. For more information on using colloidal silver againstStaphylococcus aureus/MRSA, click the link.
  • Candida albicans is the well-known fungal pathogen normally found in small numbers in the human body, but that can easily grow out-of-control under certain conditions. It can affect the skin, genitals, throat, mouth and even become blood-borne, at which point it has a mortality rate of approximately 40%, resulting in close to 40,000 deaths per year. For more information on usingcolloidal silver against Candida albicans, click the link.
  • Salmonella typhimurium is another well-known food poisoning pathogen infecting up to one million people per year in the U.S., resulting in 20,000 hospitalizations and causing symptoms ranging from vomiting, diarrhea and severe abdominal pain to death in severe cases (up to 400 deaths per year). For more information on using colloidal silver against Salmonella typhimuriumclick the link.
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the leading causes of lung infections and burn infections, and one of the most frequent causes of death in lung disease and among burn victims, with mortality rates ranging between 18% and 61% depending upon the microbial strain and the site of infection. For more information on using colloidal silver against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, click the link.
  • Klebsiela pneumonia is found in the mouth, skin and intestines, but can also infect the lungs, causing pneumonia and destroying lung tissue, leading to death. The mortality rate can be as high as 50%. This microbe can also mutate into CRKP – the latest of the deadly super-pathogens medical science is having trouble controlling with prescription antibiotic drugs.

Zeolite – Cancer Cure?!

How One Woman Turned East for Her

Natural Cure to Cancer – with Zeolite


and the amazing benefits of Meditation should not be overlooked!



By Ashley Peters

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

I believe that the most important lesson I learnt from my experience with terminal cancer is that you should always embrace every opportunity, no matter what it entails. To love, to be inspired, to be depressed, to make art, to speak the truth, to embrace the chaos that is life, to forgive yourself, to breathe, to enjoy the ride. There are so many people in life who walk around with their heads in the sand; being swallowed up by money, by jobs, by addictions, by society. I think that having terminal cancer opens your eyes in a way I never thought possible, and you can see clearly for the first time; it is a rebirth of epic proportions.

Diagnosis and Symptoms

The day I was first diagnosed, I remember feeling in a state of ‘deep rest’; what some might call depressed. I see it differently, as for the first time I was able to understand my symptoms and relax into a state where I could deal with the diagnosis. These symptoms had been coming on and off now for some time, including a strong metallic taste in my mouth, migraine headaches, visual disturbances, numbness in my face and hands, seizures including both grand mal and absence seizures, bleeding nose and a fatigue I had never known before.

Involving my partner in this was a hard decision, as we had only been together for a short time. He made the decision to commit and walk side by side with me, something I will be eternally grateful for.

When we left on our trip to South East Asia, my symptoms had escalated. Some might call it irresponsible (and in fact many did including numerous doctors) to leave behind the world of modern medicine to live out those last few months. But looking back on it, it seems ironic that I left behind the Western World to embrace Eastern culture, which have two very different approaches to medicine and health. The Western approach focuses heavily on the treatment of symptoms with medication, where health is the absence of pain, and visible physical defects. The Eastern approach focuses on prevention and strength of health as a balance between mind, body and spirit. Being unhealthy in the Eastern view is being unbalanced in terms of the body’s natural energy or ‘Qi’.

I remember when we were traveling through the Cambodian jungle, and exploring the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, I felt my symptoms intensify, and I was concerned that perhaps I had made the wrong choice of not continuing the Western treatment for cancer. It was shortly after this that I decided to take a leap of faith and give Zeolite a go.

Treatment with Zeolite

Zeolite (500ml)

In South Africa, Zeolite is available here :


I took the initial dose one night before bed. I was surprised in the morning when I woke up with great mental clarity and the metallic taste in my mouth had simmered down. The change in mental clarity was exceptional, it was like a fog had been lifted and I could see much more clearly.

The next dose I took before breakfast and I remember feeling excited and thinking could this be my answer, did I have longer to live? I remember walking to the beach that morning and I felt a little spring in my step I hadn’t had before. Within 12 hours of taking zeolite, my seizures had stopped. My nose continued to bleed for some months after, but I believe this was my body’s way of releasing some of this negative energy. Each day I took the recommended maximum dose of zeolite and with each day I felt the fog lift a little more.

I tried to keep mentally positive, allowing myself to enter deep states of meditation and relaxation to cleanse my mind, eating healthy raw foods and keeping physically active.

When we returned to Australia and I attended my initial consults with the doctors, I could not have felt healthier. I did however, keep a tight lip on what treatment I had been using as I did not want criticism and I wanted honest feedback as to my test results. The doctors were amazed at my results, one even angered saying that they needed to know what treatment I had been using and to not fool around with them (I of course did not go back to this doctor). The results demonstrated to me the power of this amazing mineral, showing how in the space of a few weeks it had made such an incredible change to my body.

I continued taking Zeolite for a couple more months before my next scan and to the surprise of my doctor I was cancer free with no sign of cancer cells at all. It’s now been 5 years with no sign of the tumor coming back, and I have been given the “all clear” by my doctor.

Since coming through this turmoil, I now understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle and personally believe that the success of any cancer treatment long term, is dependent on a great shift in our daily health choices and habits. Below I will outline what I believe to be the keys to achieving optimal health amongst the many challenges that we face in modern society.

Achieving Optimum Health


Nutrition is an interesting one as there is so much conflicting information available. Personally, I believe in a whole food approach; one rich and diverse in vitamins, minerals and of course enzymes. This helps to take the burden of enzyme production off your body and when you do this your body will use this additional energy for repair instead. I believe in eating as many super foods as possible, such as turmeric (raw in juice if possible, however just remember that it will stain anything yellow), kale, goji berries, acai berries, blue berries, Cacau.

For Cacau, you can buy it in it’s raw, organic form from most health food stores, however there is another version Chava which also contains liquid zeolite and has an ORACFN antioxidant value of over 465,100 per 100g. In comparison raw cacau contains 80,933, which is amazing in its self (Waiora product catalogue, 2011). also focus on avoiding foods with numbers on the labels because of the toxic content associated with this. Liquid zeolite has also been shown to increase the absorption of nutrients. This occurs as a result of the removal of toxins that block the pathways for nutrient absorption, as well as promoting healthy bacteria in the gut.

Juice Cleanses & Detox

Juice cleanses and detox are now a part of our health regime. We do this a few times per year and this allows the body to do lots of repair and maintenance it usually wouldn’t be able to do thanks to the high vitamin, mineral and enzyme intake. As well as it being very easily digested, green vegetable juice also greatly boosts the removal of toxins, which is highly recommended by Dr Gabriel Cousens.

Candida removal is a big one, and there is lots of information available on this topic. It is quite well known that people with cancer are generally also riddled with Candida: “Cancer patients undergoing radio or chemotherapy did not finally succumb to the cancer itself, but to an infestation of candida albicans” (Contemporary Oncology Magazine 1993 in the USA). The alkalizing effect of pure liquid zeolite will kill off the small active candida. But some very interesting new research on candida and the formation on funguses around toxic material by Leonardo Michael. He speaks of some types of candida burrowing roots into tissues of the body, and that they can’t be killed off until you remove the chitin layer around the fungus. For more information here is an interesting 4 part interview. Though this research has not been verified it is very interesting.

Clean Water

The importance of clean water is one of the most vital parts of health. Drinking clean water that is free of as much toxic debris as possible, and in an alkaline state is incredible in its self. At home, we use a 7 stage filter including a zeolite layer, to remove most of the toxic debris that is found in water today. There is a mineral stone layer in our drinking filter, that adds back some vital minerals to the water. Distilled water is good for alkalizing, but it does not contain any naturally occurring minerals that we would get from a water source in nature such as a mountain stream.

Structure of water molecules is also very important. The studies by Dr Masaru Emoto show that water holds a consciousness, is a liquid crystal, and has a memory. Emoto demonstrates this by exposing a jar of water to certain negative or positive influences, then freezes this water to see its crystalline structure; the results are extraordinary. When you consider just how much our bodies are made of water, you can begin to see how it might impact us. There is a brilliant documentary on this called “Water: the Great Mystery” if you would like to know more.

Zeolite 1
Zeolite 3

Exercise and toxin release are also big ones for a healthy lifestyle. Exercise is a must for any health plan as it gets all our lymph flowing and our immune system pumping, as well as boosting positive (feel good) chemical production in the brain. It is also known that sweating is one of our body’s main ways of removing toxins and saunas are a good way to boost this. Infrared saunas, in particular are great as they increase the level of toxin removal, at a lower temperature than standard saunas (good for those that aren’t sauna savvy). Here is a video by Dr Gabriel Cousens on Infrared Saunas


I believe meditation, mind/body connection and positive mental attitude are equally as important to your health as eating the right foods. A good mental diet (as I call it), where mental relaxation is key, allows great rest for the whole body. Mental clarification is very specific to each person, and you should experiment with as many kinds of mediation as you can. Yoga or Tai Chi are active meditation techniques, and drawing mandalas or reading a calming book are also forms of meditation. The deepest and most rewarding I find is to be sitting and just reflecting on your day connecting with the Earth and feeling the flow of energy around you. Directing your focus to things that you are grateful for is an amazing way to intensify this positive feeling.

Mental Patterns

Changing the mental patterns we have long held onto, and learning simple techniques on how to do this can change our lives and our health dramatically. Negative thought patterns can be one of the greatest immune suppressors in our bodies. Some inspirational teachers of this are Louise L Hay, and Tony Robbins who provide some brilliant life coaching and lessons. Also more recently, Josh Johnston’s Lifelong program www.growlifelong.com offers a new and innovative approach, with simple ideas on how to think and act a little differently and grow happy.

The final word

The lifestyle choices I now make are well informed, and I am able to see more clearly the alignment of the Eastern triangle of health as a balance between mind, body and spirit. There is always things that we can be doing to improve our health, and constant research is available into different ideas to promote health and wellbeing. What is most important is that you do your own research, become aware of what the concept of ‘health’ means to you. One can read, and research, and understand many different definitions of health, but one can only understand health when it becomes a decision to act on the information you have come to know as truth.

After so many big things have happened in my life, I have come to realise that you only live once. There are so many wonderful things to live for, the breath of fresh air that wakes me up in the morning, the autumn leaves falling on the path, the sun that beams down on me, the love when I look into my partner’s eyes. When I am healthy, I am free. I hope that some day my story will help others to address their own fears and struggles around health, whether it be mental, physical or spiritual health.

“You can never cross the ocean, unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”.

Turmeric more effective than prozac

Turmeric more Effective than Prozac at Treating Depression

July 25, 2013 Filed under HealthNews Posted by 


By: Elizabeth Renter,
Natural Society.

It’s common knowledge in the natural health world that pharmaceuticals often (if not always) do more harm than good. It’s also clear that foods, herbs, and other natural sources can offer similar benefits without those nasty side effects. Once again, our beliefs have been affirmed by science: A recent study published in Phytotherapy Research says that not only is turmeric effective at treating depression, it may even be more effective than some of the most common anti-depressant drugs currently on the market.

While previous studies have indicated the effectiveness of turmeric (curcumin) in treating serious depression, this study was the first randomized controlled clinical trial of its kind.

Researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India compared the effects of turmeric and Prozac (fluoxetine), both used together and individually, in 60 patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD).

According to GreenMedInfo.com, the researchers used the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale to measure their results:

“We observed that curcumin was well tolerated by all the patients. The proportion of responders as measured by the HAM-D17 scale was higher in the combination group (77.8%) than in the fluoxetine [Prozac] (64.7%) and the curcumin (62.5%) groups; however, these data were not statistically significant (P = 0.58). Interestingly, the mean change in HAM-D17 score at the end of six weeks was comparable in all three groups (P = 0.77). This study provides first clinical evidence that curcumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD without concurrent suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders.”

While reading the researchers conclusions indicates one treatment (turmeric) is equally effective as Prozac, it doesn’t account for the negative effects of Prozac, which boost turmeric’s value considerably. Prozac is known to cause “suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders,” frightening side effects that are clearly absent in turmeric use.

In addition to fighting depression, the bright yellow root commonly used in Indian cooking known as turmeric has been found to have numerous health benefits. In addition to this enlightening research on its efficacy in depression treatment, we know it also has value in the treatment of inflammatory conditions, diabetes, and even cancer. If that isn’t enough, it’s also been shown effective in aiding in weight loss and cutting heart disease risk. Plus, it tastes amazing.

Anti-depressant medications are some of the biggest of Big Pharma’s many big money-makers. Equipped with knowledge like the findings of this most recent study, consumers have the potential to undermine their goal of drugging America and the world.


A Compromised Immune System and Colloidal Silver













Colloidal Silver is available in South Africa from :

I know a man who had a dual-organ transplant (kidney/pancreas) about four years ago. He has to take anti-rejection drugs daily to keep his immune system from rejecting the transplanted organs. That’s because the human immune system views transplanted organs as “foreign bodies,” and targets them for attack.

So because of the anti-rejection drugs he has virtually no immune system, which means he is basically a walking target for just about any kind of opportunistic infection that comes along.

What’s more, because of the nature of the business he runs, he is in constant contact with the general public during the course of the day, and has very little choice but to be around people who are sick with colds, flu, sore throats, coughs, etc. This is a very dangerous situation for any transplant patient, because, generally speaking, their immune systems are so weak from the immune-suppressing anti-rejection drugs that even the slightest infection can become life-threatening.

However, my friend tells me that each morning he washes down his anti-rejection medication with an ounce or two of colloidal silver. And in the four years since his transplant, he has not had a single serious infection. He’s had a few minor colds and sniffles, but that’s about it. (You can hear all about it, in his own words, in the newly released Colloidal Silver Secrets video, available inexpensively in both DVD and VHS formats athttp://www.lifeandhealthresearchgroup.com).

His lack of serious infections is, of course, very unusual given his circumstances. Normally, it is quite common for transplant patients on immune-suppressing anti-rejection drugs to be afflicted with a number of infections every year, any of which can become quite serious. In fact, many transplant patients become so afraid of catching an infection, they carry doctor’s face masks with them wherever they go, in case they end up in the presence of someone who is coughing and choking with some kind of infection. Other transplant patients simply won’t go out in public very much during certain times of the year when colds and flu are prevalent. But my friend doesn’t let fear of infection stop him. He does what he has to do to run his business and make a living. And he depends on colloidal silver to keep him relatively infection-free all year long.

It makes me wonder if colloidal silver would help with other immune-compromised individuals as well. For the past 14 years, I’ve personally used small amounts of colloidal silver daily in order to keep chronic fatigue syndrome at bay. And I’ve heard from a number of colloidal silver users who are afflicted with more serious conditions, such as AIDS, that while it has done very little to lower their HIV count, it does seem to help prevent opportunistic secondary bacterial and fungal infections from taking hold. It is these secondary opportunistic bacterial and fungal infections that kill many AIDS patients each year.

Of course, there are no medical studies to demonstrate that colloidal silver can protect immune-compromised individuals. Just anecdotal information such as the examples above. But it is interesting to ponder, and you have to wonder why the medical authorities don’t look more closely at colloidal silver as a possible solution to at least some of the very serious problems encountered by immune-compromised patients.

Colloidal silver – healing benefits

Ten ways to use colloidal silver’s amazing healing abilities

by PF Louis

Colloidal silver is available from : www.biosil.co.za


(NaturalNews) Colloidal silver consists of silver atoms suspended in distilled ion-less water. The particles of silver are small enough to penetrate on a cellular level and destroy pathogens of all types, including bacteria, fungal spores, parasites, and viruses.

Not only does silver get rid of pathogens, it helps promote rapid healing of the tissues infected or destroyed. Most burn centers use various forms of silver and silver soaked bandaging for burn victims.

You can buy colloidal silver online or in good health food stores or make your own cheaply and easily. Colloidal silver has many applications and is easy to apply. It has no adverse side effects. It leaves beneficial bacteria intact. Reports of argyria (skin turning blue) are greatly exaggerated.

The Medical Mafia has a tendency to blow up rare incidents of minor adverse effects from natural remedies and blow them up as scare tactics while ignoring the hundreds of thousands of annual adverse side effects from correctly prescribed pharmaceuticals.

Ten ways to use colloidal silver for self healing

1) You can spray it onto burns to prevent infections and promote faster healing without scarring.

2) You can also spray or dab it onto ringworm, boils, herpes sores, and warts for faster healing.

3) If you’re having bronchial problems or walking pneumonia, you can put some colloidal silver in a nebulizer and breathe it into your bronchial area and lungs directly.

4) Small amounts taken daily as a tonic will give what some call a second immune system to guard against flues and colds. Easy and inexpensive if you make if you make your own.

5) Colloidal silver drops can be used for ear infections without any harmful side effects. Some use it for eye and nasal infections as well. Perhaps it can be injected anally with an enema bulb to help cleanse the colon.

6) It can be applied topically for vaginal yeast infections or oral thrush (yeast infection). Could be useful for chronic jock itch as well.

7) Colloidal silver can be used by pregnant women to assist fetal development and easier delivery of the newborn child.

8) It can be taken early with the onset of a cold, flu, or bronchitis to get over it quickly without harming beneficial bacteria. Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria.

9) Colloidal silver can be used successfully to combat MRSA infections. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a staph infection that can be fatal and is now resistant to antibiotics. It usually occurs during hospital stays, but has become rampant enough to originate outside hospitals (http://www.naturalnews.com/023712_MRSA_Texas_infections.html).

10) There has been some success using colloidal silver with AIDS patients. It adds a layer of needed additional immunity while destroying existing pathogens.

More about colloidal silver

Early 20th Century western medicine used silver as a prime antibiotic and anti-fungal until the 1930s. Then antibiotics became a major source of Big Pharma revenue.

As more and more antibiotics were created, the pathogenic microbes began evolving into resistant strains to them. The health dangers imposed by antibiotics by destroying friendly gut flora needed for digestion and immunity were disregarded.

Antibiotic use lowers immunity by destroying the good bacteria along with the bad. Lately, some fluoroquinolone based antibiotics have even permanently and painfully crippled those who had been prescribed them (http://www.naturalnews.com).

Since silver seems to act by stifling the enzymes pathogens use for survival, pathogens are unable to develop resistance to them. Fortunately, alternative medicine has re-discovered colloidal silver for healing all sorts of ailments. A few years ago, the EU banned colloidal silver sales (http://www.naturalnews.com/027989_colloidal_silver_superbugs.html).

Before Codex regulations arrive here, purchasing your own system for making colloidal silver would be a wise move.

Another Reason You Need Colloidal Silver:  50% of U.S. Meat Supply Tested Now Contaminated With Deadly MRSA Pathogen!



Only a few short weeks ago I reported that as much as 14% of the U.S. meat supply has become contaminated with the deadly MRSA pathogen. Now researchers writing in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases say the figure is closer to 50%!  Can colloidal silver help protect you and your family?  You bet it can!  Here’s what you need to know right now…

What’s lurking in the meat you’re buying for your family?

Plenty of disease-causing bacteria, according to a new study, published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

Almost HALF of all the beef, chicken, pork, and turkey bought in five U.S. cities and sampled by researchers, was found to contain drug-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA, reports CBS News.

That’s up from only 14% in studies conducted late last year.  In other words, the problem with MRSA contaminated meats is growing by leaps and bounds!

Each year, MRSA kills more people in the U.S. than AIDs.  Hospitals now take extraordinary precautions to prevent its spread in surgical wards.  Schools in a number of states have been closed to stop its spread.  Even football games have been postponed when players have become infected.  So its spread into the U.S. food supply is extremely problematic.

According to YahooNews.com:

In the new nationwide study, researchers analyzed 136 samples of 80 brands of beef, chicken, pork and turkey purchased at 26 retail stores in five cities: Chicago; Flagstaff, Ariz.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Los Angeles; and Washington, D.C.

The results showed that 47 percent of the samples were contaminated with S. aureus, and that 52 percent of the bacteria were resistant to at least three classes of antibiotics.

DNA testing suggests that the food animals themselves were the major source of contamination with S. aureus, said the researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) in Phoenix.

The study was published in the April 15issue of the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

“For the first time, we know how much of our meat and poultry is contaminated with antibiotic-resistant Staph, and it is substantial,” said study senior author Lance B. Price, director of TGen’s Center for Food Microbiology and Environmental Health.

“The fact that drug-resistant S. aureus was so prevalent, and likely came from the food animals themselves, is troubling, and demands attention to how antibiotics are used in food-animal production today,” he added.

Even though cooking kills the pathogen, it is easily spread during the food preparation process.  This makes it critical to clean cutting boards, kitchen countertops, food preparation utensils and anything else the meat may have come into contact with (including your hands) with a powerful disinfectant like colloidal silver.

More importantly, you need to have colloidal silver on hand in case you or a family member comes down with a potentially deadly MRSA infection.



Does Colloidal Silver Really Kill MRSA?

Thankfully, numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of colloidal silver against the MRSA pathogen.

Let me briefly summarize just four of those studies for you now. You may have seen some of this information in previous ezines I’ve sent, but at this point in time it’s critical to understand how truly effective colloidal silver is against MRSA:

Case #1: A Brigham-Young Clinical Study Proves Silver Kills MRSA – In this study, conducted quietly in October 2006 at the Department of Microbiology/Molecular Biology of Brigham-Young University, and published in the journal Current Science, Vol. 91, No. 7, October 10, 2006, it was found that a number of the antibiotic drugs which formerly killed MDR (multiple drug-resistant) pathogens such as MRSA could actually be restored to full efficacy against the deadly pathogens, but only if a colloidal silver solution was used in conjunction with the drug!

Since these antibiotic drugs had previously lost their effectiveness against the super pathogens, this study clearly demonstrated 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, called “Synthesis and effect of silver nanoparticles on the antibacterial activity of different antibiotics against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.” was conducted by the Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Medical Nanotechnology Research Center, Faculty of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences at the University of Tehran, Iran. 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 (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus).

Say what you will about the Iranians, but when they do a medical study, they do it up right. Apparently Iranian scientists were two full months ahead of the Brigham-Young team I mentioned in Case #1 above in proving that the addition of silver particles to antibiotic drugs boosts their ability to kill resistant staphylococcus aureaus – the MRSA pathogen.

Case #3: Taiwanese Clinical Study Proves Colloidal Silver By Itself Kills MRSA – Another study, this one conducted by the Department of Textile Science, Nanya Institute of Technology, Chung-Li, Tao-Yuan, Taiwan and published in the journal Colloids Surface B Biointerfaces in October 2007, also demonstrated that silver colloids kill 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. It was later published in the prestigious Journal of Physical Chemistry B in August 2006. Titled “Silver colloidal nanoparticles: synthesis, characterization, and their antibacterial activity,” 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 as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).”

Graviola for cancer

Is This Fruit Extract 10,000 Times

Better Than Chemotherapy?

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Over a quarter of a century ago a study was performed on the seeds of the Soursop fruit, also known as graviola, which at that time demonstrated such amazing cancer-fighting potential, that those exposed to it within the conventional medical community looked upon it with complete incredulity.

Published in the Journal of Natural Products in 1996, Compound 1, one of five extracted from the seed of the graviola fruit, was found to be “selectively cytotoxic to colon adenocarcinoma cells (HT-29) in which it was 10,000 times the potency of adriamycin.”

Adriamycin is the trade name for the chemoagent doxorubucin and is known by the nickname “red devil,” due to both its deep red color and terrible side effects, which include life-threatening, even fatal damage to the cardiovascular system. This abject lack of “selective cytotoxicity” — the ability to kill only the cancer cells and not healthy ones  – is what makes Adriamycin so dangerous. And yet, it has been a first line treatment for a wide range of cancers for almost half a century.

Since the 1996 study, little research on graviola was performed. There was a cell study in 1999 which showed it had anti- prostate cancer and breast cancer activity; another 2002 cell study showed that graviola exhibited anti-hepatoma (liver cancer) activity, but nothing as promising as the original 1996 study ever followed.

Then, in 2011, the journal Nutrition and Cancer revealed highly promising research on Graviola and breast cancer. Researchers found that graviola fruit extract (GFE) suppressed so-called oncogene (or cancer-causing gene) expression in the cell and animal models of breast cancer. The oncogene known as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is commonly over-expressed in breast cancer, and therefore an ideal target for therapy.

According to the researchers

“A a 5-wk dietary treatment of GFE (200 mg/kg diet) significantly reduced the protein expression of EGFR, p-EGFR, and p-ERK in MDA-MB-468 [breast cancer] tumors by 56%, 54%, and 32.5%, respectively. Overall, dietary GFE inhibited tumor growth, as measured by wet weight, by 32% (P < 0.01).” [emphasis added]

The study authors concluded

“These data showed that dietary GFE induced significant growth inhibition of MDA-MB-468 cells in vitro and in vivo through a mechanism involving the EGFR/ERK signaling pathway, suggesting that GFE may have a protective effect for women against EGFR-overexpressing BC [breast cancer].” [emphasis added]

Given these findings the time may be ripe for reconsideration of graviola in the prevention and/or treatment of cancers, such as colon and breast cancer.

Good Health Truths:


or HSI / agora                   Welcome to Consumercide.com    | Graviola

My Dear Friend,

Imagine you’re working in a drug company.

Suddenly, you stumble across a natural compound that’s…

…10,000 times more toxic to colon cancer cells than a common chemo drug…

…lethal to 12 different kinds of malignant cells, especially those that cause lung, prostate, and breast cancers…

…safe enough that it protects healthy cells instead of killing them…

…doesn’t cause extreme nausea or hair loss…

…and this treatment doesn’t make cancer patients drop huge amounts of weight, get weak, or compromise their immune systems…

Wouldn’t you naturally want people to know about it? Think about how many lives it could save…how much suffering it could wipe away…how much a discovery like this could change the face of medicine forever!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to question your common decency. Far from it. What I’m suggesting is that I think you’d be as shocked as I was when I found out what I’m about to tell you…

One of America’s billion-dollar drug companies sat on this very same super-potent, super-safe cancer treatment — for seven years!

The web of intrigue I’m about to unravel is as compelling as any Hollywood plot. How so?

Picture this. Scene:

The Amazon. Act One: A drug company with a billion-dollar bank account discovers two phytochemicals trapped in the seeds of a plant that grows here in the jungle.

These naturally occurring chemicals literally destroy cancer cells. And without harming healthy cells. In fact, extracts from the same plant actually boost immunity!

Does the drug company tell the world? Call the newspapers?

Not on your life.

Instead, it’s Act Two:

The company orders researchers into the lab to isolate the natural chemicals so they can crank out a patented, prescription version of the drug. They do this for seven years before they finally give up…the synthesized version just isn’t working. (And you can’t patent natural compounds — it’s against the law.)

So what do they do next?

Act Three:

Instead of publishing their findings, they box up the research and put it away to collect dust…never to be seen again.

The End? Not quite.

Thank God for independent thinkers!

This incredible natural compound from the Amazon — called Graviola — would have stayed hidden forever if it hadn’t been for one courageous researcher who couldn’t bear to see this discovery locked away.

Finally, in a series of confidential communications, he came forward. His career was on the line. But everything he revealed was so profound, it may change the history of medicine as we know it!

At the very least…

Doctors and patients are going to forever change the way they think about treating cancer. How do I know? I’ll tell you more about this incredible discovery…and hundreds more just as hidden, just as potent…in just a second. But first, let me share with you another kind of story. This one has an even happier ending…

How Daryl S. made 20 malignant tumors  
disappear — in less than two months ! 


Daryl S. is an executive in a high-tech company in Texas.

I’m not going to give his last name because, like a lot of people, he likes to keep his medical affairs quiet. In fact, like a lot of people (especially men) Daryl used to rarely give his health a second thought. That is…

Until his doctor diagnosed him with prostate cancer.

Sonogram and a biopsy confirmed it. An incredible 20 malignant tumors had formed around Daryl’s prostate.

Alarm bells went off. Daryl wasn’t the least bit surprised when one of his doctors recommended surgery. But his doctor was surprised when Daryl refused it. You see…

Daryl knew then what a lot of men fear. Prostate surgery comes with a risk of lifelong impotence and loss of bladder control. He didn’t want that. No more than any man would. So what did Daryl do?

First, he agreed to less invasive hormonal therapy. Working with your doctor is critical when it comes to serious things like cancer. But Daryl also took some responsibility into his own hands. He set to work, researching every alternative prostate treatment he could find.

Some of the most compelling evidence was what he found about Graviola, the incredible natural compound I just told you about. The one that otherwise would have gotten lost in the dark filing cabinets of a pharmaceutical company.’

Daryl immediately started himself on a rigorous program of supplements, including Graviola. Now keep in mind, this substance has long list of potent health applications…from destroying cancer cells to boosting immunity to improving your sense of general well-being.

And guess what. It paid off.

Within two months, Daryl’s PSA levels plummeted from a dangerous 4.1 to a perfectly normal 0.00. And sonogram and gamma-ray tests showed that every prostate tumor had completely disappeared!

Incredible? Not when you find out why ‘unconventional’ healing stories like Daryl’s could happen a lot more often than they already do…

How thousands of patients could avoid needless suffering every year just by knowing ahead of time about powerful healers most drug companies would rather keep under wraps

Let’s face it.

Drug companies are in business. We like business. And anybody can see why it only makes sense that they plan to make their biggest money selling drugs nobody else has the right to make. There’s no other way to keep shareholders happy. But the terrible downside is this…

Certain natural compounds — no matter how powerful, how effective, how miraculous they prove to be — will never make it out of drug company research labs. In fact, most won’t get researched at all. Why?

Because it’s simply not profitable to develop a treatment that can’t be patented. Again, don’t get me wrong.

I’m not saying there’s some big conspiracy under foot.

I’m not saying there isn’t, either.

I’m just suggesting that trusting drug companies to dictate what’s best for you…and leaving it at that…well…

It’s a lot like asking a cat to look after your goldfish. Let me show you what I mean…

Millions of lives that probably could have been
saved over the last 25 years…but weren’t
How many people do you think have been diagnosed with cancer since 1976? Take a guess. It’s well over 20 million. How many died from the disease? About 6 million.

Yet, when U.S. scientists first suggested Graviola might unlock the cancer dilemma…Gerald Ford was still in the White House!

That’s right. It was 1976. And since then, over 20 different lab studies… including prolonged research by Purdue University and the National Cancer Institute…all pointed to the same thing: Graviola is a dynamo when it comes to destroying cancerous cells.

Yet not one drug company we’ve found took up the gauntlet and ran with it.

Like I said earlier, thank God for independent thinking…

Colloidal Silver Versus Deadly CRE Bacteria

      Colloidal Silver Versus

Deadly CRE Bacteria


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is now warning that Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) – which include drug-resistant forms of Klebsiella pneumonia and E. coli – are becoming “increasingly resistant” to antibiotic drugs.

“CRE are nightmare bacteria. Our strongest antibiotics don’t work and patients are left with potentially untreatable infections,” says CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H.

Thankfully, preliminary research has demonstrated that colloidal silver and other forms of antimicrobial silver are astonishingly effective against these pathogens. Here’s what you need to know…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is now calling for the entire U.S. health care community to work urgently – individually, regionally and nationally – to protect patients against infection by the new Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) pathogens.

These lethal, drug-resistant pathogens are now spreading throughout hospital environments nationwide (and worldwide), killing up to 50% of all patients who end up with blood-borne infections.

According to the most recent CDC bulletin:

“Data show more inpatients suffering infections from bacteria resistant to all or nearly all antibiotics.

The bacteria…kill up to half of patients who get bloodstream infections from them.

In addition to spreading among patients, often on the hands of health care personnel, CRE bacteria can transfer their resistance to other bacteria within their family.”

The New York Times also chimed in on the issue, warning in this news article:

“The bacteria, normally found in the gut, have acquired a lethal trait: they are unscathed by antibiotics, including carbapenems, a group of drugs that are generally considered a last resort.

When these resistant germs invade parts of the body where they do not belong, like the bloodstream, lungs or urinary tract, the illness may be untreatable. The death rate from bloodstream infections can reach 50 percent.”

Stay Out of Hospitals

Of course, the smartest thing to do in order to avoid becoming infected by this deadly group of pathogens is to stay the heck out of hospitals, where they are chiefly spread on the hands and gowns of hospital workers.

But if a hospital stay is unavoidable, colloidal silver may well be your one big hope of survival.

Indeed, if a hospital stay is in your near future, you might want to review my previous article titled “Colloidal Silver and Hospital-Acquired Infections: What You Can Do to Protect Yourself!”

And you might also want to review my previous article “Colloidal Silver and Airborne MRSA Pathogens” which discusses the “Cool Mist Vaporizer” trick for keeping hospital rooms (and homes) antiseptically clean using colloidal silver.

Early Warning

I warned of the spread of CRE pathogens way back in May, 2011, well before most health authorities were aware of this class of pathogens.

Back then, doctors thought there was only one form, which they had dubbed “CRKP,” which stands for Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumonia. (Carbapenem, of course, is the so-called “antibiotic drug of last resort.”)

Today, doctors are aware that other bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae family have joined the ranks Carbapenem-resistant pathogens, including some forms of E. coli, as mentioned earlier.

So they have now changed the name from “CRKP” to the more inclusive “CRE,” which stands for Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae.

Silver’s Effectiveness Against Klebsiella

As I explained in my previous article, “Colloidal Silver and the Deadly Super-pathogen CRPK,” preliminary lab research indicates colloidal silver is astonishingly effective against the Klebsiella pneumonia pathogen.

In fact, up to 75% of antibiotic-resistant strains of the Klebsiella pathogen were stopped cold by silver-based antimicrobials.

And even when silver didn’t kill the pathogen, it completely disabled it, preventing it from becoming infectious.

According to the Physicians Guide to Natural Health Products that Work, by James Howenstine, M.D., colloidal silver has indeed been demonstrated to be effective against the Klebsiella pathogen:

…colloidal silver preparations that contains between 20 and 25 parts of silver per million parts of water…

…[have] proven effective…in quickly resolving pneumonias due to pneumocystis, streptococcal, staphylococcal, klebsiella and fungal infections.

In the hospital, the therapy is administered by a special nebulizer as well as orally.

– Physicians Guide To Natural Health Products That Work, by James Howenstine, M.D., pg 262

And according to a nurse who posted to the internet about her experience after contracting CRKP:

“For me colloidal silver was a life saver when I contracted a serious form of pneumonia from the CRKP bacteria, or Carbepenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia, after taking care of two patients who were suspected of having it.”

The nurse went on to explain that she used a medical nebulizer to inhale the colloidal silver into her lungs, and thus get it into the bloodstream. (To learn how to use colloidal silver with a nebulizer, see the article at the link.)

And according to a May, 1999 report from the Microbiology Department of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, when colloidal silver was tested against Klebsellia pneumonia, it took only 2.5 ppm to “inhibit and kill” the pathogen!

Here’s an excerpt from the report, written by David A. Revilli, microbiologist, and Dr. Ron W. Leavitt, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology/Molecular Biology, both of BYU:

Klebsiella pneumoniae (lower respiratory tract infections, nosocomial infections (infections spread in hospitals), urinary tract and wound infections, and bacteremia) inhibited and killed @ 2.5 ppm. 1/28/99 BYU Report.

So the good news is that colloidal silver appears to be extremely effective against at least one of the two Enterobacteriaceae family pathogens that are now causing such consternation among Centers for Disease Control medical bureaucrats.

And while this does not prove colloidal silver will be effective against the latest Carbapenem-resistant strains, it is certainly a strong enough indication for medical authorities to follow through on.

More importantly, it’s a strong enough indication for you to keep in the back of your mind, should you or a family member ever become infected with this particularly deadly class of pathogens.

Silver’s Effectiveness Against E. Coli

What’s more, the same types of past clinical results pretty much holds true for the second Enterobacteriaceae pathogen now causing fits among doctors and health authorities, i.e., the drug-resistant forms of E. coli.

In fact, back in June 2011 when a deadly, drug-resistant strain of the E. coli microbe was sweeping across Europe, I wrote an article titled “Colloidal Silver and E. Coli,” in which I revealed that silver-based antimicrobials had indeed been demonstrated to be effective against drug-resistant forms of the pathogen.

In that article, I revealed the seven clinical studies that have demonstrated the effectiveness of silver-based products – including silver ions, silver nanoparticles and colloidal silver – against E. coli.

That included this study titled “Colloidal Silver as a New Antimicrobial Agent,” which was published in the International Journal of Microbiological Research back in 2010.

The study authors concluded that colloidal silver exhibited “powerful antimicrobial activity” against multi-drug resistant pathogens including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aregnosa and Salmonella typhi.

And in this study, titled “Bactericidal Effect of Silver Nanoparticles Against Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria,” which was published in 2010 in the World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology, researchers found that the silver nanoparticles easily inactivated drug-resistant bacteria, including E. coli.

The researchers found that the tiny silver particles actually began inhibiting the bacterial growth rate from the very first moment of contact between the bacteria and the silver nanoparticles.

Finally, in another study, titled “Antimicrobial Activity of Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles Prepared by Sol-Gel Method,” published in 2011 in the Digest Journal of Nanomaterials and Biostructures, it was reported that “all tested microorganisms were completely inhibited at the concentration of 2-4 μg/ml of nano silver.”

This study included both the E. coli pathogen and the Klebsiella pneumoniae pathogen, which were killed in the laboratory at 3 ppm and 4 ppm colloidal silver, respectively!

In Conclusion…

So there you have it.

The preliminary evidence, based upon numerous past clinical studies, is that colloidal silver has been demonstrated to be astonishingly effective against drug-resistant strains of both Klebsiella pneumoniae and E. coli.

These are the two Enterobacteriaceae family pathogens that are now giving doctors fits worldwide, and causing the deaths of up to 50% of all who end up with blood borne infections.

Therefore, colloidal silver may well turn out to be one of the last lines of defense against the new “CRE” strains of these two pathogens the health authorities are now fighting against.

Of course, it remains to be seen if medical science picks up on this vital information on silver’s efficacy against drug-resistant strains of these two pathogens, and follows through on it.

Oftentimes, brewing crises like this one seem to be motivated more by pocketbook issues. In other words, scare stories like this one are often used to justify why the big drug companies should be paid hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer monies to develop new antibiotic drugs.

(See my article “Big Pharma Shuns Silver; Blackmails U.S. Government Into Paying for New Antibiotic Drugs With Taxpayer Money” if you’d like to know more about the scam of using taxpayer money to pay for new antibiotic drug development.)

Nevertheless, it’s important for you to have this crucial information on silver’s efficacy against drug-resistant pathogens.

After all, you never know when it may come in handy, if only to pass along to your own physician should you or a loved one end up with a similar hospital-acquired infection!

I’ll be back next week with another great article on colloidal silver.

Fibromyalgia and Colloidal Silver

www.TheSilverEdge.comColloidal Silver and Fibromyalgia Pain: The Inside ScoopIs colloidal silver an effective remedy for fibromyalgia? While there are no significant clinical studies on the use of colloidal silver for fibromyalgia, some cutting edge practitioners routinely recommend it for the condition.

What’s more, over the past 16 years I’ve received numerous anecdotal accounts from readers suffering from fibromyalgia who had serendipitously decided to use colloidal silver for a minor infection such as a cold or flu, and then found their fibromyalgia symptoms were dramatically reduced as a result.

Below you’ll discover what a number of fibromyalgia victims have said about the results they’ve achieved with colloidal silver, along with some important information on the underlying causes of fibromyalgia and how colloidal silver usage can fit into a successful nutritional intervention program for this painful disease…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com

According to Dr. Kent Holtorf, M.D., of the Holtorf Medical Group, colloidal silver is one of the few natural treatments that have been found by cutting edge medical practitioners to be significantly effective against fibromyalgia.

He states:

“The effectiveness of oligodynamic silver’s antimicrobial action at extremely low doses in combination with its potential immune stimulating actions, makes it an ideal naturally occurring substance in the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.”

In his report titled “Safety and Efficacy of Intravenous Oligodynamic Silver,” Dr. Holtorf goes on to state:

“Hundreds of thousands of doses of oral colloidal silver and thousands of doses of intravenous colloidal silver are given every month in the United States.

This is usually done to treat acute and chronic infections including those associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM).

The effectiveness of the use of oral and intravenous colloidal silver in the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia was presented at the 38th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine in October 2003.

The extremely low level of colloidal silver used at 23 parts per million (ppm) has been shown to have little or no potential for toxicity while having the significant potential for clinical benefit.”

No Significant Clinical Research

While Dr. Holtorf’s statement is promising, the fact remains that with the exception of the medical conference he cited, there has been very little significant clinical research conducted on the use of colloidal silver for fibromyalgia.

Indeed, most of the information on the use of colloidal silver as a nutritional intervention for fibromyalgia has been anecdotal in nature, meaning reports from people who have used colloidal silver themselves and have found it to reduce their fibromyalgia symptoms – sometimes quite dramatically.

And it’s largely because of these numerous anecdotal reports from fibromyalgia victims that many natural health advocates have come to routinely recommend colloidal silver as a nutritional remedy for fibromyalgia.

For example, according to natural health journalist Tony Isaacs, writing on the NaturalNews.com website:

“Fibromyalgia…is characterized by widespread chronic pain involving multiple ‘tender points’ in the upper neck, back, shoulders, and hips.

Treatments, such as painkillers, antidepressants, muscle relaxants, and the injections of anesthetics are rarely effective.

However, many may find relief from nature and alternatives as opposed to mainstream drugs and treatments.

A natural alternative which may heal fibromyalgia is to take plenty of colloidal silver – start off with 2-4 ounces per day and maintain at least an ounce a day until you achieve satisfactory results.”

Real-Life Accounts

Over the past 16 years since I first wrote The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, dozens of people have written or called to tell me that they’ve found dramatic relief from their fibromyalgia symptoms after using colloidal silver orally.

My theory is that fibromyalgia is much like chronic fatigue syndrome in nature – that is to say, it is often connected to a hidden underlying infection, such as a mycoplasmas infection or an underlying viral infection such as Epstein Barr or Cytomegalovirus.

Some researchers have also connected fibromyalgia with systemic Candida yeast infections. And some researchers have connected it with Hepatitis C infections, as well as Chlamydia pneumonia infections.

This may well be why so many fibromyalgia victims seem to obtain positive long-term results from using colloidal silver: i.e., its inherent infection-fighting qualities appear to help mitigate the underlying infection that fibromyalgia victims suffer from, thus dramatically reducing the painful symptoms of the disease.

I’ll discuss that idea in more depth, in just a moment.

But first here are some excerpts from testimonials I’ve received from readers who have successfully used colloidal silver for fibromyalgia:

  • I’m an RN with a BSN from a large university. My father is a retired dentist.

We are a medical family. So the biggest hurdle for me was to let myself experiment with colloidal silver and give it a chance.

…I’m also a two-time cancer survivor, and had (notice the past tense) fibromyalgia after the initial chemotherapy round in 1995.

I purchased your manual, then the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, just prior to the second round of cancer/chemo.

Once I finished chemo, I treated myself for fibromyalgia as per the manual. I am convinced the fibromyalgia has at least regressed.

I still have sleep issues that go along with the fibromyalgia diagnosis, but I no longer have the deep aches and pains that affected my daily life before this.”

– C.R., Highland, Utah

  • Here’s another example:

“I have fibromyalgia and I take silver every day.

I feel so much… better. Less fatigue, less pain, more memory and no depression, my irritable bowel syndrome has been helped as well.”

– Cindy S.

And another example:

  • “I just purchased my Colloidal Silver Generator about a month ago.

I have fibromyalgia and some other health issues. Since I have been taking my home made CS [colloidal silver] my pain has gone away.”

– Christina M.

This fibromyalgia victim says she takes two ounces of colloidal silver per day and no longer suffers from the usual aches that characterize the disease:

  • “Hello, we have been a fan of colloidal silver for about a year. I have Hep C and Fibromyalgia and the achys that go with them.

I have found that if I take a few oz’s of colloidal silver a day I don’t ache anymore. Now we make it for ourselves. Good stuff!”

– Terri R.

And this fibromyalgia victim says her fibromyalgia symptoms come roaring back “big time” when she fails to take her colloidal silver:

  • “…I also have fibromyalgia and can see a big difference when I forget to use my colloidal silver…all the pain comes back big time.

I have had FM for about 15 years and have felt so much better and have been able to continue to work…all thanks to colloidal silver.

I have made an extra quart when a neighbor was sick and she used it and got well in a very short time….she said she could almost feel it working!

Up ’til then she had been sick for days and not getting any better…..AMAZING STUFF!”

– Mary K.

Here’s a fibromyalgia victim who says she takes one shot glass full of colloidal silver a “few times a day” to stop her fibromyalgia aches:

  • “We make our own colloidal silver now. We bought the Micro-generator. It makes the 10 ppm.

I have many health issues but I use it for Fibromyalgia aches…also for colds etc. etc.

I take a shot glass full a few times a day. My immune system is very bad…One day I woke up and realized that I wasn’t achy anymore!!!!”

– Terri R.

These anecdotal accounts are all from the Testimonials page at TheSilverEdge.com, where you can find dozens and dozens more anecdotal accounts demonstrating the many ways people have successfully used colloidal silver as a nutritional intervention against a wide array of infectious illnesses and disease.

As you can see, a lot of people are claiming to have found dramatic relief from their fibromyalgia symptoms by taking a little bit of colloidal silver daily – a few ounces a day, at most, it appears from the testimonials.

Is Fibromyalgia Caused By An Underlying Infection?

As I mentioned earlier, in my personal layman’s opinion, I believe in many cases of fibromyalgia there’s an underlying viral or bacterial trigger, i.e., either a virus like Epstein Barr or Cytomegalovirus, or a “stealth pathogen” such as mycoplasma. Or even a systemic fungal infection such as Candida yeast.

Such pathogens can cause ongoing inflammation in the joints and around the muscle tissues and in the nerve sheaths throughout the body, which can lead to the wide constellation of painful symptoms experienced by fibromyalgia victims.

The Road Back Foundation, a group that advocates the use of antibiotic drugs to treat rheumatoid arthritis and related pain conditions, agrees that underlying infections might well be the cause of fibromyalgia as well, stating:

“The connection of fibromyalgia to infections is well documented in the literature, especially in relation to Lyme disease, mycoplasma, Chlamydia pneumoniae, Hepatitis C, Parvovirus B19, HIV, and Epstein-Barr.

It is believed as many as 25-40% of long-term Lyme patients develop fibromyalgia-like symptoms, particularly pain and fatigue; as many as 25% of HIV patients, 57% of Rheumatoid Arthritis patients and 24% of Psoriatic Arthritis patients also have fibromyalgia symptoms.”

In other words, people with known infections such as Lyme disease, HIV, Epstein-Barr and others often experience fibromyalgia-like symptoms along with the other symptoms of the disease they’re suffering from.

This has convinced many researchers that classic fibromyalgia by itself may well be caused by an underlying infection, which in turn might be causing inflammation and other cellular damage in the nerves, muscles and tissues of the victim, resulting in the broad array of pain symptoms experienced as fibromyalgia.

Other Causes of Fibromyalgia

But do all fibromyalgia victims have an underlying infection? Not necessarily. According to Dr. Garth Nicholson, Ph.D.:

“Are chronic, systemic infections the answer to all fibromyalgia and other pain disorders? Of course not!

While underlying infections are likely to be an appropriate explanation for a rather large subset of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia syndrome patients, certainly not every patient will have the same chronic infections.

Some patients may have chemical exposures or other environmental problems as the underlying reason for their chronic signs and symptoms.”

So while underlying infections are “likely to be an appropriate explanation for a rather large subset” of fibromyalgia victims, other causes can include chemical exposures or exposures to environmental toxins or perhaps even environmental allergens.

Nevertheless, Dr. Nicholson says that through the use of DNA/PCR testing (a sophisticated lab test that can verify otherwise difficult-to-find hidden infections) he’s found mycoplasma infections in approximately 50% of patients with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and arthritis.

He states:

“The identification of mycoplasma infections in the leukocyte blood fractions of a rather large subset of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia syndrome and arthritis patients suggests that mycoplasmas, and probably other chronic infections as well, may be an important source of morbidity in these patients.”

Fibromyalgia researcher D.L. Goldenberg has also found a connection between infectious microorganisms and fibromyalgia pain. He states:

“Infectious agents are capable of activating inflammatory cytokines which may in turn cause severe myalgias, fatigue, and neurocognitive disturbances…

The potential role of a microbial agent as a trigger to fibromyalgia remains tenable.

For example, antibodies to Chlamydia pneumoniae have been found in 78.3% of FM patients tested.”

That’s quite an interesting statement. The fact that infectious microorganisms are capable of “activating inflammatory cytokines which may in turn cause severe myalgias, fatigue, and neurocognitive disturbances” may well help explain why so many fibromyalgia victims find benefit from taking colloidal silver.

Indeed, recent clinical research has demonstrated that silver nanoparticles are potent inhibitors of the inflammatory response caused by cytokines.

For example, in the study “Silver Nanoparticles Interactions With the Immune System: Implications for Health and Disease,” it was demonstrated that silver nanoparticles have dramatic anti-inflammatory properties, and that these properties are a direct result of the inhibition of excessive cytokine production.

Said the researchers:

“It has been shown in vivo that silver nanoparticles decrease inflammation through cytokine modulation.

…silver nanoparticles…were found to strongly inhibit cytokine production, for example, of INF-γ, IL-6, IL-8, IL-11, TNF-α and more weakly IL-5.

…The lack of amplification of the inflammatory cytokine cascade is important in providing a permissive environment for wound repair and tissue regeneration to proceed.

These results have given an insight into the actions of silver and provided a novel therapeutic direction for wound treatment in clinical practice.”

In other words, the study authors believe that silver nanoparticles can improve wound healing because of their ability to modulate the cytokine cascade, which is to say, to prevent excessive cytokine expression in the human body which would otherwise lead to inflammation and pain and slower healing.

If it is true that silver inhibits excessive cytokine production in wound healing, would it not also be true in the case of underlying infections in which the infectious microorganism – whether bacterial, viral or fungal – is “activating inflammatory cytokines” and as a result causing” severe myalgias, fatigue, and neurocognitive disturbances”?

In another study published in the journal International Immunopharmacology, in 2007, researchers also found that silver appears to reduce cytokine-provoked inflammation to such a degree, they actually recommended it as a treatment against inflammation.

According to the study authors:

“…new research…indicates that silver goes further than this and modifies cytokines – the enzymes involved in cell growth and movement – leading to reduced inflammation and an increased rate of healing.

…MIT-based medical scientist Rutledge Ellis-Behnke regards the Hong Kong group’s research as groundbreaking, saying: “Silver has been used for over a thousand years in traditional Chinese medicine for wound healing, but this is the first time that a hint of the true mechanism has been shown.”

The authors of the study concluded that ” These experimental data suggest that nano-silver could be used to treat immunologic and inflammatory diseases.”

The bottom line is that this may well be the basis for the profound relief experienced by some fibromyalgia victims after experimenting with colloidal silver usage.

All of this leads me to believe that many people who have used colloidal silver and later witnessed a profound regression in fibromyalgia symptoms may very well have had a hidden underlying infection they were unaware of, and the colloidal silver either worked to remove the infection, or at least suppressed the inflammatory activity of the pathogen by reducing the excessive cytokine activity it would normally trigger.

Treating Non-Infectious Cases With Colloidal Silver?

However, Dr. Aundrea Adams, Ph.D., CTN, points out that colloidal silver is often wonderful for relieving pain on its own, whether or not an infection exists.

Indeed, she says that colloidal silver can heal pain because of silver’s innate quality as a “superconductor” of electrical current, including the electrical current that flows through the human body, and which pain often disrupts. She states:

“Many people are skeptical of claims that colloidal silver can take away pain and accelerate healing. Nevertheless, these impressive attributes are firmly grounded in medical science.

Pain is caused by an interruption of the electrical current that normally flows throughout the body at 50 to 70 millivolts. At the point of injury, the current drops towards zero millivolts.

This lack of electrical energy also impedes healing. Silver is a superconductor that bridges the electrical gap and restores healthy current flow.

You can prove this to yourself by placing a silver coin on a burn and experiencing instant pain relief.

In clinical trials at an FDA-approved laboratory, even silver-coated bandages were proven to have analgesic and regenerative properties.”

– Dr. Aundrea Adams, Ph.D., CTN

In other words, sometimes colloidal silver works to relieve chronic pain simply because it can help restore proper electrical flow in the body.

This means that even if a case of fibromyalgia is not caused by an underlying infection, colloidal silver might still help relieve the pain by acting as a conductor of electrical current in the body!

Are Large Doses Necessary?

Most colloidal silver users with fibromyalgia say they’ve found relief with just a few ounces a day, taken orally.

However, some victims of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, Multiple Sclerosis or related chronic degenerative diseases feel they need to take extremely large daily amounts of colloidal silver in order to obtain relief.

This is often because they’ve read anecdotal accounts on the internet in which victims of mycoplasmas infections or related chronic degenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis or Lyme Disease have stated that they didn’t obtain relief from their symptoms until they began taking eight, 10, 12, or even 16 ounces of colloidal silver per day on a regular basis.

But that’s one heckuva load of silver on the kidneys and liver – one which I’d never recommend anyone to take, for any reason, for long periods of time. Why?

Because as I’ve written numerous times (here and here and here and here, for example), taking large daily amounts of colloidal silver for long periods of time can lead to a condition called argyria.

Argyria is a condition caused when excessive levels of silver are ingested on an ongoing basis, and the body’s normal channels of elimination become overwhelmed.

As a result, the excess silver cannot be effectively removed from the body, and ends up getting stored in the organs and tissues, and later pushed out to the skin. It then becomes tarnished upon exposure to light, permanently staining the skin blue or gray.

Colloidal Silver Is Only Part of the Solution

That’s why, for cases of fibromyalgia or other related chronic degenerative diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lyme disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and others that are suspected of being caused by underlying infections, it’s often important to use more than one nutritional intervention in order to help the body repair the damage being done by the offending pathogen, and help the immune system stop the spread of the infection.

Colloidal silver can be an important part of that nutritional intervention, but should not be the only part, and should never be used to excess.

Indeed, when you bring other nutritional supplements into the picture, you can often reduce colloidal silver usage to a tiny fraction of the excessive amounts some people have advocated, and still obtain remarkably successful results.

As a long-time victim of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia myself, I discovered that only small amounts of colloidal silver are necessary, once you learn about the other powerful and effective nutrient substances that can be used to heal the body, restore peak immune system function and eradicate problematic symptoms.

Among the nutritional supplements I’ve found to be extremely helpful in addition to colloidal silver are:

  • D-Ribose, to help restore cellular function often damaged by viruses or other pathogens
  • Pregnenolone , to help restore hormonal function often damaged by viruses or other pathogens
  • Beta-1,3-1,6-glucan, to help restore peak immune system function
  • Vinpocetine , to help restore peak brain function and eliminate “brain fog”
  • Methylcobalamin, to help repair nervous system damage

There are other helpful nutritional supplements as well, but those are a great start.

The bottom line is that being solely dependent upon colloidal silver for relief from fibromyalgia or related chronic degenerative conditions can lead to excessive usage, which in turn can lead to argyria or other complications.

But by using colloidal silver responsibly, as one small part of a much broader nutritional supplement regimen designed to help the body repair and heal itself, you gain all of the benefits of colloidal silver usage, but without the very real risks of excessive usage.

In that light, you might want to read my article An Open Letter to Victims of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which discusses my own personal multi-pronged nutritional protocol for combating the viruses and other pathogens that are so often associated with both chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

You might also want to read my article on Colloidal Silver and Mycoplasmas Infections, which also discusses a broad nutritional protocol for helping the body repair itself and overcome the underlying infections that can cause the painful array of symptoms so often associated with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and similar chronic degenerative diseases.

Marvellous Moringa – superfood of superfoods!

Marvelllous Superfood Moringa


What is particularly unique about Moringa is the fact that every part of the plant, including its bark, leaves, flowers, and roots serves a unique purpose in promoting human health. Its seeds, for instance, contain up to 40 percent of a non-drying, edible oil known as “Ben Oil” that is rich in antioxidants and similar in its nutritional profile to olive oil. The clear, sweet, odorless oil also has an indefinite shelf life, as it does not turn rancid like many other oils.

“The leaves, flowers, seeds, pods, roots, bark, gum, and seed oil from the Moringa (malunggay) plant are continually being subjected to intensive research and development programs because the various constituents of the Moringa are known to have, among other properties, anti-diabetic, anti-hypertensive, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-tumor, and anti-aging activities,” writes Nelly Favis-Villafuerte for the Manila Bulletin about Moringa.

Perhaps the most utilized component of Moringa is its leaves, which can be dried and ground up into a nutrient-dense, tart-flavored powder. According to another report in the Manila Bulletin:

Moringa powder contains seven times the amount of vitamin C typically found in oranges, four times the amount of vitamin A in carrots, 36 times the amount of magnesium in eggs, 25 times the amount of iron in spinach, 50 times the amount of vitamin B3 in peanuts, and 50 times the vitamin B2 in bananas.


Like Ben Oil, Moringa leaf powder does not spoil, which makes it an excellent long-term survival food. Particularly in third world countries, Moringa powder provides nutritional sustenance at a level unparalleled by most other food plants. And because Moringa seeds can grow to full-size, harvestable trees in as few as 65 days, the Moringa plant is a highly-sustainable source of food that is virtually unmatched in its viability and usefulness.

If you live in U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Hardiness Zones 9, 10, or 11, you can very easily, with very little maintenance, grow your own outdoor Moringa trees at home. If you live in a cooler climate, you can either grow your own Moringa trees indoors or in a greenhouse, or purchase pure Moringa powder, oil, and tea products from various online vendors.
