Colloidal Silver and Tuberculosis

 Learn more about the astonishing infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver at www.TheSilverEdge.com
Tuberculosis, also called “TB” (short for tubercle bacillus), is a common and often deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria. 

According to Wikipedia, “Tuberculosis typically attacks the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body. It is spread through the air when people who have an active TB infection cough, sneeze, or otherwise transmit respiratory fluids through the air.”

TB is the second-most common cause of death from infectious disease worldwide, with HIV/AIDS being first.  According to researchers, there are up to 13.7 million active cases of TB worldwide at any given time, resulting in 1.3 to 1.5 million deaths annually.

TB infections are extremely difficult to cure.  Standard treatment for TB consists of the daily use of at least four different antibiotics for up to18 to 24 months. 

Worse yet, cases of multiple-drug-resistant TB are now running rampant in some countries.  And the mortality rates are skyrocketing. 

Is colloidal silver effective against TB?  Here’s what we know so far…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…

In this clinical study, entitled “Nature-inspired Novel Drug Design Paradigm Using Nanosilver:  Efficacy on Multi-drug-resistant Clinical Isolates of Tuberculosis,” researchers found that when testing a “novel form” of metallic nanosilver against antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis (TB), the pathogens were killed rapidly and successfully.

The researchers state that by capping (i.e, coating) metallic silver nanoparticles with bovine serum albumin and then testing it in the laboratory against sputum samples collected from pulmonary TB patients with multi-drug-resistant TB, they were able to demonstrate that this “novel nanosilver compound” constitutes a “potent anti-TB drug.”

The “Novel Drug” Ruse

While the study results are extremely encouraging, the idea that you need to "cap" (i.e., coat) metallic silver nanoparticles with a chemical substance in order to make them "less toxic" to the human body is ludicrous and counterproductive, as I’ll explain below.    

In reality, the researchers coated the metallic  silver nanoparticles with bovine serum albumin because they were attempting to come up with a "novel invention" so they could obtain FDA "drug" status for it, patent it, and monopolize its sale globally.

They as much as admitted so in the conclusion to their study, where they state, “Encouragingly, the results indicate that this novel design could be further extended for developing improved medicinal agents for combating multi-drug-resistant TB.” (See Current Microbiology, 2011, 62:715-726.)

There is really no other “benefit” to coating the metallic silver nanoparticles with bovine serum albumin. 

You see, when metallic silver nanoparticles are coated with any substance, whether it’s bovine serum albumin, or milk protein, or PVP, or any other, the effectiveness of the silver against pathogens is dramatically limited.

That’s because coating the silver nanoparticles greatly diminishes their ability to release silver ions inside the human body. 

And silver ions are what actually kill the pathogens, not the metallic silver nanoparticle being ingested (see “Experts:  It’s the Silver Ion that Gives Colloidal Silver It’s Antimicrobial Power.”) 

So for the coated metallic silver nanoparticles to release enough silver ions to be effective against pathogens, a person would have to ingest two or three times more nanosilver than they would if the silver nanoparticles had not been coated. 

And that means the liver and the kidneys will have to deal with two or three times more silver “load” on the body than they otherwise would have.  This is most definitely not prudent or wise. 

A far safer and more effective way to go would have been to leave the silver nanoparticles uncoated, but use one-third to one-half the dose

That far lower load of nanosilver on the body would give the researchers all of the safety and low toxicity they claim to have been looking for in the first place.  And it would allow more than enough silver ions to be released from the uncoated silver nanoparticles to do the job against the pathogens.

The bottom line is this:  The whole idea that capping the silver particles makes them "less toxic" to humans is ridiculous, because you're in essence forcing the infected individual to ingest two or three times more silver than necessary to kill the pathogens. 

But using far smaller dosages of uncoated silver nanoparticles would allow the release of free silver ions (which kills the pathogens), while putting a mere one-third to one-half the silver load on the liver and kidneys. 

Turning a Natural Substance Into a “Drug”

What's really happening here is that the medical researchers and the big drug companies want desperately to enter the market for silver-based infection-fighting substances.

After all, they know that silver is far more effective against infectious microorganism than their failing prescription antibiotic drugs.

The big drug companies also know they can't patent a completely natural substance like silver, so they have to come up with some way to create a "novel" silver-based product, or at the very least a "novel" delivery system.

I emphasize the word "novel" because that’s the single-most important criteria that must be passed for a product to receive a patent and to be sold as a drug.

In other words, for a medical product to be patented and sold as a drug, it must be unique and new, i.e., something that doesn't occur naturally and hasn't been manufactured the same way before.

As long as it's a "novel" (i.e., unique and new) substance or there's a novel methodology behind its creation, use, or delivery, Big Pharma can then patent it, turn it into a “drug,” and monopolize its sales worldwide making billions of dollars in the process.

Great News

In spite of my concerns about the use of coated silver nanoparticles in the above-described is study, the conclusions drawn by the study authors are nevertheless exciting and eye-opening, because it means silver has been clinically proven to destroy TB.

This once again confirms the incredible infection-fighting power of silver against infectious microbes – even drug-resistant microbes like the TB pathogen.

Think about it:  Even silver nanoparticles coated with bovine serum albumin (which dramatically reduces their effectiveness) worked well against the drug-resistant TB pathogens in this study. 

Can you imagine how well it might have worked if the silver nanoparticles were uncoated, or if pure ionic silver (i.e., typical health food store colloidal silver) had been used instead of some “novel” new invention?

So why not just tell people that small doses of safe, natural colloidal silver – consisting largely of pure silver ions which are the active, infection-fighting form of silver -- could just as effectively be used to kill the TB pathogen?

Well, there’s no money in that for the researchers, is there? 

While silver ions are the active, infection-fighting specie of silver, they’re not patentable because anyone can produce them with a simple, home colloidal silver generator such as the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.   

Look…millions of people worldwide have been ingesting tiny silver nanoparticles and pure silver ions in moderation for decades now, without undue harm or risk.

So the whole idea that tiny silver nanoparticles need to be coated in bovine serum albumin in order to “reduce toxicity” is nothing less than a spurious notion designed, in my opinion, to cover up the fact that the researchers were trying to create a “novel” drug for Big Pharma.

What’s more, it's important to note here that some people are quite allergic to bovine serum albumin, which is also known as BSA.  Indeed, BSA is one of the allergens in the so-called "cow’s milk allergy."  

Isn't it interesting that Big Pharma and their lackeys in the FDA create unwarranted fear over the use of safe, natural, colloidal silver, while simultaneously creating the illusion that their “novel” silver compound coated with bovine serum albumin is going to be "safe" and good for you?

As usual when dealing with the big drug companies and their researchers, rank deception and hypocrisy are the order of the day.

Can Colloidal Silver Cure TB?

While the study discussed above demonstrates that silver can indeed be used to kill the TB pathogen, it does not prove that silver is a “cure” for TB in the human body.  More studies need to be done.  But the current study is cause for much hope.   

There are also some citations in very old medical literature (circa 1900) for the use of colloidal silver as a remedy for tuberculosis. 

But you have to keep in mind that most of the formulations of colloidal silver used back then were often chemical in nature, which is to say, they were not electrically generated colloidal silver, but instead silver compounds made through a chemical process.   

According to American Biotech Labs, a company which has paid for private studies to be conducted on colloidal silver in different areas of the world, colloidal silver has been used in Ghana, West Africa, to successfully treat such diseases as tuberculosis, malaria, gonorrhea, and more.

You might also find it worthwhile to do a Google search for US Patent #7,135,195. This patent claims that colloidal silver is very effective against the tuberculosis pathogen.

The patent claim, of course, only applies to the specific brand of colloidal silver discussed in the patent.  And treating any serious disease, including TB, should be done only under the supervision of a licensed medical practitioner. 

But the patent is one more link in the chain of evidence suggesting that colloidal silver could be highly effective against the tuberculosis pathogen in the human body, just as it is against so many other pathogens.  

According to the “Purpose” and “Conclusions” sections of the patent dealing with their study on colloidal silver and the tuberculosis bacteria (section 9, “Evidence of Efficacy of 10 ppm Silver Against Tuberculosis Bacteria”), colloidal silver at only 10 ppm has been demonstrated to effectively kill the TB bacteria:

          Purposes

The purpose of this example is to demonstrate the efficacy of a silver composition of the present invention against the bacteria that cause tuberculosis.

This example describes the procedures for evaluation of the present invention for tuberculocidal efficacy.

The methodology is based on the Tuberculocidal Activity Test Method as accepted by the EPA on Dec. 11, 1985. [Refer to United States Environmental Protection Agency, 1986. Office of Pesticides and Toxic Substances. Data Call-In Notice for Tubercuolocidal Effectiveness Data for All Antimicrobial Pesticides with Tuberculocidal Claims. (Received Jun. 13, 1986).

Conclusions

The use of silver compositions of the present invention is effective against tuberculosis bacteria.

A method comprising the step of administering silver compositions of the present invention is effective against tuberculosis organisms.”

So it's fascinating that only 10 ppm colloidal silver was shown to be effective against the tuberculosis pathogen in the study cited in the above-mentioned patent. 

However, it’s important to note that this claim is based on a test-tube study used in the patenting of a colloidal silver-based product.  It was not a human study.  So we still await further clinical studies before drawing any hard-and-fast conclusions.

But as biologist James South, MA, once wrote in the International Anti-Aging Bulletin:

"From 1900 to the beginning of the modern antibiotic era - circa 1940 with the introduction of sulfa drugs - Silver was one of the mainstays of medical practice in Europe and America.

Various forms of Silver were used to treat literally hundreds of ailments: lung infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis and pleurisy; sexual diseases such as gonorrhea and syphillis; plus…

…skin conditions such as cuts, wounds, leg ulcers, pustular eczema, impetigo and boils; acute meningitis and epidemic cerebro-spinal meningitis; infectious diseases such as Mediterranean fever, erysipelas…

…cystitis, typhus, typhoid fever, and tonsilitis; eye disorders such as dacryocystitis, corneal ulcers, conjunctivitis and blepharitis; and various forms of septicemia, including puerperal fever, peritonitis and post-abortion septicemia."

And as Dr. Kent Holtorf, M.D., of the Holtorf Medical Group has stated:

"Silver formulations have also been used in hundreds of various infections and other conditions including pneumonia, tuberculosis, eczema, meningitis, erysipelas, Mediterranean fever, corneal ulcers, conjunctivitis and septicemia."

In 1910, Dr Henry Crooks a pioneer in colloidal chemistry wrote that:

"...certain metals such as silver, when in a colloidal state, have a highly germicidal action but are quite harmless to human beings…

...Bronchial tuberculosis…Staphylococcus pyogenes, various Streptococci and other pathogenic organisms are all killed in three to four minutes:

in fact no microbe is known that is not killed by this colloid in laboratory experiments in six minutes, [and] the concentration of the [silver] does not exceed twenty-five parts per million…"

And as Alfred B. Searle wrote in 1921, his book, Use of Colloids in Health & Disease:

“...it is now definitely known that the germicidal properties of certain colloidal metals are based chiefly on the fact that the metals are in the colloidal state…

...a vigorous growth of b. tuberculosis was killed by colloidal silver in four minutes (a solution of 1 part silver to 2,000 parts fluid)."

Finally, the well-known and highly respected Dr. Gordon Pedersen wrote, in his 2014 book “A New Fighting Chance”:

“Tuberculosis is a common and often deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria. 

…silver has destroyed tuberculosis in laboratory studies. 

By drinking two teaspoons twice daily and inhaling from a nebulizer 30 minutes each day, you may affect the tuberculosis in both the lungs and the bloodstream.

Tuberculosis is not easy to beat.  This dosage may need to be followed for weeks or months.  You should see benefits after the first dose and each repeated use.”

So perhaps if clinical researchers were more interested in curing disease than in making money for their pharmaceutical company masters, we'd know by now whether or not colloidal silver -- without any of the bells-and-whistles to make it a "novel drug" -- would indeed work against Tuberculosis, now that the dread disease is becoming endemic once again worldwide.

Real-Life Accounts?

Are there any real-life accounts of colloidal silver being used to cure a case of tuberculosis? 

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any.  That’s likely because most cases of TB are in Third World countries where colloidal silver is not available.  But I have seen a few anecdotal accounts that clearly point in that direction. 

For example, here’s an anecdotal account I found on the CureZone.com website, about a woman who’d tested positive for latent TB for 32 years, but who no longer tested positive after only two months of daily use of colloidal silver:

“A close family member had been ‘infected’ with tuberculosis 32 years ago.

When doctors did the TB test, she would always test positive. Just recently she has a physical done because she just got hired by a medical institution.

They tested her for TB and found she was not infected and quite normal.

Just two months of colloidal silver took care of 32 years of a stubborn bacteria that would not go away.

Of course, that testimonial account still doesn’t prove colloidal silver would cure an active TB infection.  After all, you can test “positive” for years after an initial TB infection, even if you’re no longer battling the actual infection.  The immune system simply keeps the pathogen in a more-or-less dormant state.

But the testimonial above does indeed indicate that colloidal silver can rid the body of the pathogen, even after it’s been established there for decades.

Colloidal Silver versus the New Airborne Superbugs

 Learn more about the powerful infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver at www.TheSilverEdge.com
Here’s another great reason to always have fresh, pure colloidal silver handy, and to learn how to use it correctly. 

Drug-resistant superbugs which used to be found chiefly in hospital settings are now going airborne, and are making their way into communities across the U.S., quite literally being carried on the wind. 

Of course, we already know that colloidal silver absolutely decimates most drug-resistant superbugs.  (See the article below for links to clinical studies demonstrating this now well-known fact.) 

And we know that for the past half-dozen years or so, the drug-resistant superbugs have been moving from the hospital environment into the community environment, meaning they’re now in our schools, day care centers, churches, movie theaters, gyms, supermarkets and even our homes – just about anywhere people congregate.

What we didn’t understand, until now, is how these drug-resistant superbugs are being spread so quickly throughout the general population in cities and towns across America. 

Now the mystery has been solved, at least in part.  Here’s the straight scoop you won’t find anywhere else…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

I’ve written in the past about the hidden reason the world is now in such a titanic battle against antibiotic-resistant superbugs. 

You can read the facts no one else is reporting in the following two articles:
But the bottom line is that some 80% of all antibiotic drugs being produced today – an astonishing 17 million pounds of them -- are not being given to humans to fight infections.  Instead, they’re being given to farm animals like cattle, sheep, pigs and even fish and chickens. 

Worse yet, they’re not even being given to the animals to protect them from infection.  They’re being given to the animals in order to fatten them up faster so they can get the meat to market quicker and make more money.

You see, when antibiotics are given to farm animals on a regular, ongoing basis, it negatively affects their metabolism, causing them to start putting on weight very quickly. 

This allows Big Agriculture to make literally billions of dollars more in profits every year, because the animals grow faster, and the big corporate farming operations can get the meat from these antibiotic-drenched animals to market faster than ever before. 

But as a result of this massive (and quite unethical) overuse of antibiotics in farm animals, farms are now becoming huge repositories for drug-resistant pathogens. 

And meat from those farms, which is sold in your local supermarket, is often contaminated with low levels of antibiotic drugs, which you, in turn, eat whenever you have meat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

This low-level ingestion of antibiotic drugs on an ongoing basis kills off the weaker pathogens in your body, leaving only the hardiest and most virulent of pathogens alive. 

These pathogens then mutate, becoming even more resistant to common antibiotics.  And if you end up infected, prescription antibiotics drugs won’t work.

Now They’ve Gone Airborne

But as Time magazine has reported in their March 2015 news article “Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria From Texas Cattle Yards Are Now Airborne, Study Finds,” there’s now another way the drug-resistant superbugs can infect you. 

The superbugs can travel on air currents from the big corporate farming operations where they’re most concentrated, to your home, where you can get infected simply from breathing them into your lungs.    

Indeed, not only are the superbugs that thrive on the big corporate farming operations becoming airborne, but they’re able to travel extremely long distances simply by hitchhiking a ride on the wind currents.

As stated in Time magazine:

A new study says the DNA from antibiotic-resistant bacteria found in American cattle yards has become airborne, creating a new pathway by which such bacteria can potentially spread to humans and hinder treatment of life-threatening infections.”

The Time magazine article goes on to say:

“Because antibiotics are poorly absorbed by cows, they are released into the environment through excretion.

Once in the environment, bacteria will undergo natural selection and genes that have acquired natural immunities will survive.

The genes that have gone airborne are contained in dried fecal matter that has become dust and gets picked up by winds as they whip through the stockyards.”

Indeed, one of the authors of the new study characterizes the findings as being so frightening, “…it made me not want to breathe.” 

According to the clinical study Time magazine reported on, the superbugs and their mutated genes can then travel hundreds of miles on the wind currents to major cities, where they can then be picked up by people and further spread throughout the population.

This is quite possibly one of the main reasons why so-called “community acquired” superbug infections are now beginning to overtake hospital-acquired superbug infections. 

While hospitals are now using intensive disinfection to keep the superbug populations lower, the superbugs from animal stockyards are spreading into the communities themselves through the air, quite literally hitch-hiking rides upon the breeze. 

Colloidal Silver to the Rescue

Of course, it’s been known since the 1970’s that silver kills even the most resistant of antibiotic-resistant pathogens.  As Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. wrote in 1977,

“What we have done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, a fact which had actually been known for centuries ...

…All of the organisms we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion, including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics...In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.”

But that particular inconvenient truth is largely ridiculed by the medical bureaucrats and their cronies in Big Pharma. 

Why?  Because, simply put, there’s no money in developing silver-based drugs when people can make their own safe, natural colloidal silver for just pennies per batch, as I’m going to show you how to do in just a few minutes. 

But before we look at how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver for just a few cents per one-quart batch, let’s look at the clear, scientific evidence proving silver’s ability to wipe out the drug-resistant superbugs.  

Here are brief summaries of just three of the most recent clinical studies demonstrating silver’s profound ability to quite literally destroy drug-resistant superbugs:    

Clinical Study #1:  Colloidal Silver Kills up to 99.7% of Six Multidrug-resistant Superbugs! 

In this fascinating clinical study titled “Bactericidal Effect of Silver Nanoparticles Against Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria,” published in the World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology in 2010, it was found that antimicrobial silver killed up to 99.7% of drug-resistant bacteria, including some of the most virulent multidrug-resistant strains. 

The study authors stated:  “In our study, antimicrobial silver nanoparticles exerted a bactericidal effect against six drug-resistant bacterial strains… the same nanosilver concentration inhibited 99.7% of erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pyogenes, 95.7% of ampicillin-resistant E. coli and 92.8% of multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa.” 

The researchers further concluded that silver exhibited bactericidal effect rather than merely bacteriostatic effect.  That’s extremely good news, because it means the use of antimicrobial silver is so effective against drug-resistant strains, it outright kills them rather than merely inhibiting their growth!

Clinical Study #2:  Colloidal Silver Kills Antibiotic- resistant Staph, E. Coli, Pseudomonas andSalmonella!

In this ground-breaking clinical study, titled “Colloidal Silver as a New Antimicrobial Agent,” published in the respected International Journal of Microbiological Research in 2010, the researchers demonstrated that colloidal silver effectively decimated antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhi.

The researchers concluded:

Resistant clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhi were used as the test organisms.  This study demonstrated powerful antimicrobial activity of colloidal silver against all multidrug-resistant clinical pathogens tested.”

Clinical Study #3:  Colloidal Silver Kills 49 Different Strains of Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs! 

In this most recent clinical study titled “The Antimicrobial Efficacy of Silver on Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Isolated From Burn Wounds,” conducted by researchers at the Department of Pathology at West Virginia University, and published in the International Wound Journal in October 2012, a total of 49 different antibiotic-resistant bacteria were isolated from burn wounds and tested against silver.  

These deadly, drug-resistant pathogens included Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, multidrug-resistant Vibrio sp, drug-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia, drug-resistant Escherichia coli, multidrug-resistant Acinetobacterbaumannii and 42 others.

After exposing these drug-resistant pathogens to antimicrobial silver the researchers concluded, “…all forty-nine antibiotic-resistant bacteria showed susceptibility to the antimicrobial activity of silver…” 

As you can see, there’s hardly a superbug in existence that hasn’t been demonstrated by clinical research to be sensitive to antimicrobial silver.  And that includes the deadly MRSA pathogen that infects some 94,000 Americans each year and kills a whopping 20% of them!

And, of course, you can safely use colloidal silver internally (i.e., you can drink it) to stop colds and flu in their tracks…alleviate intestinal infections…stop urinary tract infections …cure upper respiratory infections…wipe out infection-based prostate problems…and much, much more!

10 Million Colloidal Silver Users Can’t Be Wrong!

An estimated ten million people across North America and around the world now use colloidal silver regularly.

But why pay anywhere between $19 to $39 at your local health food store for a tiny four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver that probably won’t last a week during a protracted health crisis, when you can make a full QUART at a time for less than thirty six cents – over and over and over again for the rest of your life?

You’ll literally be able to afford to give it away to sick relatives and friends…gargle with it to stop a sore throat in its tracks...swish it around in your mouth to eliminate bacterial plaque on teeth and gums...

…or even drink a few ounces daily to resolve intestinal infections or cure food poisoning ...knock out upper respiratory infections such as colds and the flu...eliminate urinary tract infections... beat Candida yeast infections with ease...and much more!

Cutting edge doctors have demonstrated that when used internally it even works on deep-seated infections that, left untreated, can result in chronic degenerative diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other serious conditions!

So if you’re tired of paying those egregious health food store prices for colloidal silver, just pick up the phone today and call The Silver Edge at:
  • 1-888-528-0559 (M-F, 8am to 4 pm, Arizona time)
Place your order for a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator right away, while you can still save a whopping $100 off the usual cost

The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator has been the world's #1 most popular and best-selling home colloidal silver generator for over 10 years running.

Here are just a few reasons tens of thousands of people throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Mexico, South America and even the Middle East own a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, and why you should own one too...
  • It pays for itself after your very first batch - your total cost to make your first quart is less than 36 cents, compared to the $240 you'd pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
  • Safe, simple to operate...No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time!
  • Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That's a fraction of a single nanometer.  Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm (or even larger), and you'll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is hands-down the very best there is!  Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to only 40% or 50% with many health food store brands!
  • Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb - you won't even see a blip on your electric bill!
  • Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
  • Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances - you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!  
PLUS, when you order you’ll also get a handy plastic zipper pouch carrying case so you can keep all of your colloidal silver-making supplies together. (It also makes it a breeze to travel with your new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator!)  

AND in addition to the FREE carrying case, you also get the following:
  • A FREE 16-page Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator Operating Instructions Guide with lots of handy hints and tips for making, storing and using your high-quality homemade micro-particle colloidal silver!
  • A FREE DVD copy of the Operating Instructions Video Guide, jam-packed with step-by-step visual demonstrations and hands-on tips and guidelines designed to simplify your colloidal silver-making experience. 
  • A FREE 16-page "Most Frequently Asked Questions & Answers About Making and Using Colloidal Silver Guide," which gives you a quick overview of the questions most frequently asked by our customers, and the easy answers you need to understand most.
  • A complimentary set (i.e., two, six-inch strips) of .999 fine silver rods, which will last you one full year and allow you to make over $24,000 worth of high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver!  Yes, I said $24,000 worth!  (Additional sets of pure silver rods are available for about $35, when you need them.)
  • FREE! -- Handy Wall Timer, so you can set your generator for the proper amount of time and not worry about being there when it's finished "brewing" your colloidal silver!
  • FREE Technical Support by phone for the life of your generator! 
It's all designed to have you making and using high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver like a pro, the very first day you get your new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator!

P.P.P.S. – Two years ago I warned you that an average of 14% of the meat you buy at your local supermarket or grocery store was contaminated with the deadly superbug known as MRSA, which evades almost all known antibiotic drugs.  

Then, last year, I warned you that the figure had jumped to 50% of all tested supermarket meats being contaminated with MRSA and other antibiotic-resistant superbugs.  

Now, according to new findings published by the FDA, an average of 61% of ALL meat sold in local supermarket is contaminated with MRSA and other deadly, antibiotic-resistant superbugs That includes an astonishing 81% of all turkey meat sold in supermarkets…69% of all pork…55% of all beef and 39% of all chicken!

Quite frankly, this means, it’s only a matter of time before you, or someone you know – perhaps a good friend, perhaps a member of your own family, even one of your own children of grandchildren – will end up with a potentially deadly super-bug infection.

And that’s just one more good reason why it’s so critically important to own the means of colloidal silver production by obtaining a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, so you can keep yourself and your family protected at all times. 

But remember, the very special $100 savings offer and FREE bonus reports and other goodies described above are available for the next 10 days only.

Researchers Prove Nanosilver Kills Toenail Fungus (Dermatophyte Fungus)

 Learn more about the powerful infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver at www.TheSilverEdge.com
Fungal infections of the nails (i.e., toenails, fingernails) are some of the most stubborn and problematic of all infections, usually requiring months of treatment with costly and potentially toxic antifungal drugs that can cause liver damage and other serious side effects.

Thankfully, researchers have demonstrated that safe, natural antimicrobial silver is powerfully effective against the dermatophyte fungi behind nail fungus.  Two different studies – one published in 2008 and one in 2011 – have demonstrated this to be true. 

Of course, natural health advocates have known for years that colloidal silver is highly effective against numerous forms of pathogenic fungi, including toenail fungus.  Here’s the straight scoop you won’t find anywhere else…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

In this clinical study published by the 2011 International Conference on Bioscience, Biochemistry and Bioinformatics, researchers examined the effects of silver nanoparticles on the dermatophyte fungi Trichophyton rubrum, which causes nail fungus.

The study is titled “Antifungal Effects of Silver Nanoparticle alone and with Combination of Antifungal Drug on Dermatophyte Pathogen Trichophyton Rubrum.”  And as its authors wrote:

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of silver nanoparticles alone and in combination with the anti-fungal drugs Fluconazole and Geriseofulvin on dermatophyte pathogen T.rubrum.”

What were the results of this study? 

The study authors found that “the growth of T. rubrum was inhibited at concentration of 10 µg/ml silver nanoparticles alone.” (That's 10 ppm.)

The study authors also found that the antifungal activity of the drugs Flocunazole (aka Diflucan) and Geriseofulvin (aka Gris-PEG) were “increased in the presence of silver nanoparticles.

In other words, silver nanoparticles worked fine, alone, against the nail fungus.  And when the silver nanoparticles were combined with popular prescription antifungal drugs, the effectiveness of the drugs was appreciably increased.

Powerful Antifungal Agent

Of course, silver has been known for decades to be a powerful antifungal agent, ever since Dr. Robert O. Becker conducted his studies on the antifungal qualities of silver ions back in the 1970s (see one such study by Dr. Becker, here).

And modern researchers have repeatedly confirmed silver’s astonishing effectiveness against fungal pathogens; for example, see the 2010 study “The Silver Nanoparticle:  a New Model for Antifungal Agents” at this link.

But the study on dermatophyte fungus above is only the second one I’m aware of to be conducted on pathogenic nail fungi.

The other study I’m aware of that looked at silver’s powerful effects against dermatophytes was titled “Antifungal Effect of Silver Nanoparticles on Dermatophytes,” and it was published in the Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology back in August, 2008. 

In that study, researchers also documented silver nanoparticles to be highly effective against both dermatophytes (nail fungus) and Candida yeast species of fungus.  You can view a copy of the study, here.

The bottom line is that older research, as well as modern-day research, has clearly demonstrated that colloidal silver is highly effective against nail fungus, as well as other pathogenic fungi such as Candida yeast.

Of course, colloidal silver users have known for years that silver is one of nature’s most powerfully effective antifungal agents.  As reader Nancy S. from Topeka, KS recently wrote:

“My 25 yr old daughter had been treating a foot fungus with many different over-the-counter products, with no luck in clearing up the fungus.

She had suffered with the pain and itching for almost a month. I encouraged her to dab on some silver water. She did and immediately the itching stopped.

I sent her home with a small bottle. The next day she called me....she had applied it several times that day. The pain was gone and the deep redness had changed to a pale pink. In 3 days after first application.....fungus was gone!!

I am no longer skeptical about it.”

Here are some additional informational resources you’re sure to find helpful on using colloidal silver to heal fungal infections:
  • If you’re tired of paying greedy health food stores $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver, it’s important to know that you can make your own high-quality, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral colloidal silver, for less than 36 cents an ounce, with a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, at this link.

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