Silver isn’t just the precious metal you find in your cutlery. What many people don’t realize because of the antibiotic overload in our Western culture is that silver is also a natural healer, hailed for centuries for its antimicrobial benefits.
ANTIBIOTICS ARE TAKING OVER
First, the bad news. If you or your child has visited the doctor for a “bug” that has been going around, you have probably been prescribed antibiotics without question. Within the past 30 years, antibiotic overuse has become common, so common that it has now created its own set of problems.
“The over-use of antibiotics in the last 30 years has led to microbial resistance, and with so few new antibiotics being developed, this could result in once treatable infections becoming fatal in years to come,” explains Gillian Leng, Deputy Chief Executive and Health and Social Care Director at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).1
This antibiotic resistance is making the bacteria antibiotics are supposed to protect against even stronger, creating what are now called “super” bacteria related to antibiotic overuse. The Public Library of Science confirms that super-resistant bugs are not only killing more people, but they are placing a financial burden on the European healthcare system.2 After examining antibiotic resistance in Europe — a problem researchers refer to as one of the greatest threats to modern medicine – the Australian National University linked high levels of antibiotic resistance to high levels of corruption, suggesting that antibiotics are overprescribed for profit.3
GOOD HEALTH SERVED ON A SILVER PLATTER
Clearly, what we are doing isn’t working, and it is even causing more harm than good. If we want to address infection safely and effectively, in a way that will save lives and reduce skyrocketing healthcare costs, we must first look within. The metallic element silver has been used extensively for thousands of years for its antimicrobial and, yes, antibiotic benefits. While silver is still used widely in alternative medicine, it began its decline in popularity when medical antibiotics were introduced in the 1940s. And yet, the natural healing benefits of silver remain in areas where antibiotics have fallen short.
The reason silver is so effective in treating infection is because of the way it works in harmony with the body. Antibiotics destroy the bad and the good, while silver targets only the bad. Colloidal silver disables the oxygen-metabolizing enzyme used by all one-celled bacteria, fungi, and viruses. When colloidal silver enters the body as a supplement, it co-mingles with the blood and penetrates cells to seek out and suffocate harmful organisms within six minutes of contact. Bactericidal silver can destroy up to 650 different disease-causing organisms, without the risk of creating silver-resistant bacterial strains.4 Beyond silver’s potent antimicrobial power, taking a silver supplement may help boost the immune system and reduce fatigue.
The type of silver you take does matter. While regular colloidal silvers are available, most products are advertised with differing formulations and strengths. Silver hydrosol is a form of colloidal silver scientifically backed for efficacy and safety, formulated in pure water with ultra-pure and ultra-small silver ion particles designed to enter the body at non-toxic levels. Advanced cellular silver provides an extra antimicrobial boost beyond traditional colloidal silver, formulated with a higher concentration of energized silver molecules at 200 ppm and considered a leading broad-spectrum antimicrobial alternative among many physicians.
We have been told that antibiotics are safe for our children, when we now know that this simply is not true. A silver supplement can be used by the whole family to fight infection without any side effects or reactions. Using silver as a natural healing agent supports the body’s ability to resist infection at the cellular level, the way nature intended.
