Colloidal Silver Cures MRSA Infections


Does Colloidal Silver Really Cure Antibiotic-Resistant MRSA Infections?

Four recent clinical studies have demonstrated that silver in a variety of forms -- including colloidal silver -- is able to cure the deadly antibiotic-resistant MRSA infections that now kill more Americans each year than AIDS infections.

Here is a brief synopsis of the recently revealed good news regarding the incredible infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver, proving beyond any shadow of a doubt its ability to kill MRSA and other deadly antibiotic-resistant pathogens - often in just minutes!

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 liquid silver solution similar to colloidal silver was used in conjunction with the drug! The researchers wrote:

“Silver–Water–Dispersion™ solution has been shown as an effective antibiotic against many Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and multiple drug-resistant (MDR) strains (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa). As high level acquired resistance to conventional antibiotics is frequent, it seems reasonable to use combination therapy in order to achieve bactericidal synergism. Active silver solutions have shown marked activity against proven bacterial-resistant strains. Hence, a range of antibiotics were tested with Silver–Water Dispersion™ solution to determine antagonism, additive and synergistic effects against a panel of microbial strains… It is clear that the combination will allow a more complete clearing of the pathological organism.”

In short, what the researchers found is that when they used the liquid silver solution in conjunction with the antibiotic drugs that had previously lost their effectiveness against MRSA and other deadly super pathogens, the antibiotics began to work again. The synergism between silver and the antibiotic drugs brought the deadly pathogens back under control. Since the antibiotic drugs had previously lost their effectiveness against the super pathogens, this clearly demonstrates that the silver was the deciding factor in the deaths of the deadly pathogens!

Case #2: Iranian Clinical Study Proves Silver Increases Effectiveness of Antibiotic Drugs Against Staph – This study 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. 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 above in proving that the addition of silver to antibiotic drugs boosts their ability to kill resistant staphylococcus aureaus. The study was called, “Synthesis and effect of silver nanoparticles on the antibacterial activity of different antibiotics against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.” In part, the researchers demonstrated:

"Silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) have been known to have inhibitory and bactericidal effects. Resistance to antimicrobial agents by pathogenic bacteria has emerged in recent years and is a major health problem. …these [silver] nanoparticles were evaluated for their part in increasing the antimicrobial activities of various antibiotics against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. The antibacterial activities of penicillin G, amoxicillin, erythromycin, clindamycin, and vancomycin were increased in the presence of silver nano-particles (Ag-NPs) against both test strains. The highest enhancing effects were observed for vancomycin, amoxicillin, and penicillin G against S. aureus.

So once again we see that it is the addition of silver to the three specific antibiotics (vancomycin, amoxicillin and penicillin) that almost magically renews the effectiveness of each of these antibiotic drugs against today’s most deadly pathogens. Silver, as usual, is the key!

Case #3: Taiwanese Clinical Study Proves Colloidal Silver By Itself Kills MRSA -- Another study, this one conducted in Taiwan, also demonstrated that silver colloids kills 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.

The study, which demonstrated conclusively that silver could be applied to contact surfaces to stop colonies of MRSA super pathogens from forming, was titled, “Formation of colloidal silver nanoparticles stabilized by Na(+)-poly(gamma-glutamic acid)-silver nitrate complex via chemical reduction process,” and was conducted at the Department of Textile Science, Nanya Institute of Technology, Chung-Li, Tao-Yuan, Taiwan. It was published in the journal Colloids Surface B Biointerfaces in October 2007.

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, which showed high antimicrobial and bactericidal activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including highly multi-resistant strains such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).” The study further demonstrated that very low concentrations of silver could be utilized to destroy MRSA, as long as the silver particles were very small, averaging 25 nm.

Once again we see silver showing “high antimicrobial and bactericidal activity” against “highly multi-resistant strains” including MRSA.

So why haven’t the medical bureaucrats been shouting from the rooftops about this? Because they do not want to jeopardize the multi-billion dollar annual sales of prescription antibiotic drugs by telling the world that something as simple and inexpensive to produce as colloidal silver could solve the whole problem and save tens or perhaps even hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide every year. You see, colloidal silver is not patentable. Therefore, the drug companies cannot monopolize it. With a simple device called a home colloidal silver generator, anyone can make their own high-quality colloidal silver, simply and easily, in the comfort of their own home, for just pennies per quart! (See http://www.thesilveredge.com/)

Even when studies show that liquid colloidal silver added taken in conjunction with failed antibiotic drugs actually restores the antibacterial activity of those drugs, the FDA still doesn’t budge. It won’t admit it has been wrong all along about silver!

Although terrorism has always been there, 9/11 showed us the scale of carnage that modern terrorism can cause. Release of poisonous gas in a Tokyo subway has further fuelled fears about our vulnerability and shown another facet of terrorism. Whereas these types of attacks are instant and devastating, a bio terror attack (releasing a contagious and deadly pathogen into a crowded public place) would be slower to show up. With the amount of travel these days, it also has the ability to spread nationwide and internationally in a very short time. Although less dramatic, this potentially makes bio terrorism the most dangerous of all.

At this point, I would like to say that I believe the media likes to hype the fear of terrorism as bad news travels faster. Politicians too can also use “terror alerts” to distract public attention away from other issues that may be embarrassing at that time. It is not the intention of this comment to participate in scare mongering, so it should be noted that a few decades ago terrorism was more rife than it is today, with the IRA in the UK, the Bader Mienhoff in Germany, the Red Army in Italy, ETA in Spain, the PLO and a number of other groups in the Middle East; plus a number of others.

With this in mind so as not to over-react, it is still wise take precautions when possible. Unfortunately there is not much we as individuals can do against bombing or poison gas attacks as we don’t know where and when they will occur; plus they happen so quickly.

However, the thing that makes a bio terror attack so dangerous is also the thing that gives us a chance – the time delay. Although it can be spread far and wide before we know we are infected, it does give us the time to do something about it.

As a bio terror attack could be anything from anthrax to bubonic plague, what can be done? Which pathogen do you get an antidote for and where do you get it from? Should there be a sudden massive outbreak, will there be enough antidote to go around?

I would like to give you the recommendation that Dr Paul K. Carlton, Jr. the Director of the Integrative Center for Homeland Security at Texas drafted to the US Department of Homeland Security in 2003. Dr Carlton received a BSc Degree from the US Air Force in 1969 and a Doctor of Medicine in 1973. Between 1999 and 2002, he was the Surgeon General to the US Air Force, during which time he acted as the functional manager to the US Air Force Medical Service.

In his letter to the US Department of Homeland Security, Dr Carlton recommended a new advanced form of colloidal silver solution as an important resource in the event of bioterrorism or an outbreak of an infectious disease. Although other colloidal silvers have been around since the 1920’s, Dr Carlton’s referred to a new colloidal silver solution, whose technology is patent pending. He wrote of this advanced colloidal silver solution that it “has undergone rigorous testing and has been found to kill anthrax, bubonic plague, hospital staph, and SARS”. At the same time it is completely non-toxic to humans. The tiny nano-particles, just 10 nano-meters in length pass through the body, making it completely safe from Argyria (a condition that turns people blue) that had plagued some other colloidal silvers.

Dr Carlton continued that this advanced colloidal silver solution, “has shown to be a proven wild-spectrum anti –microbial/bio-decontaminant . . .that can be used to increase the safety and functionality of healthcare facilities in the event of a bio-terror attack or infection outbreak such as SARS”. Furthermore he wrote, “In short, we currently do not have anything with such a wide spectrum of efficacy . . . in our inventory”.

Is there any way we can actually read these studies? It would be interesting to read what some textile scientists were doing trying to eradicate MRSA, much less in a study whose title mentions nothing about the application of colloidal silver in any way.

I must also advise the author not to use the word "prove" when trying to talk about science. Science and medicine deal with theories and evidence, never proof.

tea tree oil is also very effective topically against mrsa.
