Tamiflu, Vaccines, the Hybrid Virus, and Colloidal Silver

Tamiflu, Vaccines, the Hybrid Virus, and Colloidal Silver

by S. Spencer Jones

I continue to receive questions on the Tamiflu drug, flu vaccines, and particularly about the origins and nature of this strange hybrid virus that has now spread throughout Europe and the Americas.

Let’s talk about the vaccines, first…


As of today, the World Health Organization announced that the outbreak is moving closer to becoming a full-scale pandemic, and they declared a Phase V Alert, which is one step before announcing that a pandemic, or global epidemic is taking place.

If you look at the subhead in this news headline at, you’ll see that it reads, “Global outbreak considered imminent; vaccine efforts will be ramped up.”

Personally, my greatest fear is that the powers that be are drumming up this panic just like they did during the swine flu scare of 1976 -- only this time instead of offering voluntary public flu vaccinations, they will push for mandatory vaccinations, under the guise of “protecting the public health.”

Huge Stockpiles of Vaccines

You see, the vaccine makers have huge stockpiles of vaccines which they need to get rid of. It’s costing them untold amounts of money to have hundreds of millions of vaccine doses sitting in warehouses around the country, unsold.

A flu pandemic is exactly what they need. They get to move their vaccines, and the governments of the nations afflicted with this strange viral hybrid will pay for it. Which means, of course, taxpayer dollars will pay for it – in essence, a taxpayer-funded government bailout of the corporate vaccine makers!

A Repeat of 1976

Back in 1976, during the last “swine flu” scare in this country, I worked for the Senior Citizen’s Outreach Program in the city of Huntington Beach, California. And I saw with my own eyes how the senior citizens were panicked into getting vaccinated, and then herded to the vaccine stations hastily set up at various city government buildings.

The only problem was, nationwide, the vaccines killed five times more people than the so-called “swine flu” did. It wasn’t about “saving the senior citizens,” or “preventing the spread of the flu.” Instead, it was all about boosting the financial coffers of the vaccine makers.

In Huntington Beach we lost several of our beloved seniors that year. Not one of them died because of the flu. Instead, they died because of severe adverse reactions to the flu vaccines which were administered right there at the Senior Center where I worked. I’ll never forget that. It left a lasting impression on me. And in large part because of it, I’ll always work toward educating people about safer and more natural alternatives.

On the same subject, I just received an email from the colloidal silver generator Tech Support guru over at, George Foss. He explains that back in 1976 he was manager of the well-known Kayser's Nutrition Center in Santa Barbara. So he was in constant contact with people who were seeking to resolve long-standing health problems through natural means.

Unfortunately, George says that a number of his customers had been panicked into receiving the “swine flu” shot during the flu crisis. And within a short time, they came down with Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome (GBS), an autoimmune disease affecting the peripheral nervous system that is frequently very severe, usually exhibits paralysis, and can even be fatal.

He also reminded me that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a program originally established by Congress in the 1980's to compensate those injured by adverse reactions to the original “swine flu” vaccine.

So apparently, the government uses taxpayer dollars to pay the vaccine-makers to issue the vaccines to the people, and then they use taxpayer dollars to pay the people permanently injured by the vaccines for their debilities.

Sweet deal, I suppose, particularly if you have no conscience.

“Swine Flu” Origins

I’ve been skeptical about the origins of this strange virus right from the beginning. The idea that pig, bird and human viruses somehow combined on their own accord and then started infecting humans just doesn’t make common sense.

Dr. Rima Laibow, M.D. and her husband, former Major General Albert Stubblebine (former commanding general of the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command) both claim it is a laboratory manufactured virus.

Dr. Len Horowitz also believes this is a laboratory-engineered viral hybrid that either escaped the lab, or was purposely released.

What’s more, in his new video expose’ Dr. Horowitz names the specific vaccine maker that for several years now has been successfully splicing the pig, bird and human flu viruses together in lab experiments. You can view his video expose’ below.


Let me be clear: I don’t trust Tamiflu. I think it’s a waste of time at best, and extremely dangerous at worst.

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola. O.D. ( government health authorities in Japan actually banned sales of Tamiflu in 2007 after it caused the deaths of a number of Japanese children who took it and ended up with strange neuropsychiatric problems and brain infections.

By that time the drug already had 1,800 adverse events reports filed on it worldwide, yet no other government banned it. Such is the power of the global pharmaceutical industry.

Dr. Mercola points out that even if you took Tamiflu and it did not harm you, the manufacturers themselves admit that at best, it only cuts 1 ½ days off of a typical, simple flu infection. That crummy extra day and a half simply isn’t worth the risk, in my view -- particularly when we can use safe, natural colloidal silver, instead.

Colloidal Silver

All of this is why I’ve been pushing so hard to get people to consider using colloidal silver as an alternative to the flu vaccine and flu drugs.

And I’ve also been urging people to consider obtaining a high-quality colloidal silver generator such as the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, which unlike any other generator allows you to produce silver particles as small as .0008 microns – small enough to be effective even against serious viral pathogens.

The other big reason – a huge reason, actually – that I recommend getting a high-quality colloidal silver generator is that I honestly believe health food store shelves worldwide will be stripped bare of commercial brands of colloidal silver if the flu spread gets any worse.

Considering the alternatives (i.e., potentially deadly vaccines, or potentially deadly flu drugs), I’m sticking with colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is highly antibacterial and antifungal, so it should handily take care of the inevitable secondary pathogenic infections that cause most deaths among flu victims.

What’s more, it is also highly antiviral, particularly if the particle size is small enough, as demonstrated by this study published in the International Journal of Nanobiotechnology in which very small silver particles prevented HIV (i.e., the AIDS virus) from infecting human host cells.

Again, at the risk of sounding repetitious and self-serving, that’s why I so strongly recommend the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator for this particular situation. It makes the smallest silver particles you can possibly produce with a high-quality colloidal silver generator.

Colloidal silver just happens to be the best choice out there. It makes the most common sense. By comparison, vaccines and drugs make no sense whatsoever.

S. Spencer Jones

P.S. As Dr. Mercola points out, just a couple of months ago scientists concluded that the 50 to 100 million people who died during the worldwide 1918 flu pandemic, which lasted for a whopping 18 months, did not die of the flu itself!

Instead, they died of secondary super-infections with strep (i.e., Streptococcus pneumoniae), a pathogen which causes pulmonary pneumonia and bacterial meningitis.

You see, the so-called “swine flu” merely weakens the body, allowing bacterial super-infections to take hold.

That’s why I’ll continue to advocate for a broad-spectrum, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal approach to protecting yourself and your family from this so-called “Swine Flu” outbreak.
Colloidal silver is the only product – natural or otherwise -- that truly fits the bill. Make sure you have plenty on hand, before any panic breaks out in your neck of the woods.

Better still, make sure you’ll have unfettered access to colloidal silver for the rest of your life, by obtaining a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from

You’ll sleep better at night knowing your family is protected, and that you can help friends and loved ones should the current viral spread continue to worsen, as Google Earth maps shows it is .

How to Make a Colloidal Silver Generator

How to Make A Crude But Effective Colloidal Silver Generator

You’d be crazy not to own a high-quality colloidal silver generator in this new era of viral pandemic threats, bioterrorism and strange new infectious diseases.

But if you simply can’t afford one right now, here’s something you can do to help provide yourself and your family with at least a small measure of added protection in an emergency situation during which commercial brands of colloidal silver simply may not be available anywhere, at any price.

You can easily make a crude but effective emergency batch of colloidal silver with two 6" strands of pure .999 fine silver wire, and a simple 9-volt battery (the little square batteries that fit into the palm of your hand, available for a few bucks at any Wal-Mart). Be sure to use a new 9-volt battery, so it's fully charged.

You can get the pure .999 fine silver wire for about $20, here:

Just use a pair of needle nose pliers to bend the ends of the silver wire so that they will fit tightly over the two small battery posts on your 9-volt battery.

The silver wire needs to hang down evenly spaced from the two posts. Next, place two popsicle sticks (or crafts sticks) across the top of a 16 oz. glass filled with pure steam-distilled water. (See photo at top of article.)

Lay the 9 volt battery on its flat side, on top of the two popsicle sticks, so that the two strands of silver wire hanging from the battery posts are able to drape down into the water. (See photo at top of article.)

The two popsicle sticks are used to keep the battery out of the water, while you submerge the two connected strands of silver wire into the water.You need to make sure that at least four inches or more of both silver wires are submerged into the distilled water. (See photo at top of article.)

Don't let the silver wires touch each other while they are hanging in the water, or it will short out the battery and drain it within a few minutes, and you won't get any colloidal silver.

As soon as the two strands of silver wire are submerged into the water, electricity will start flowing from the battery through the wires, and tiny particles of silver will be driven off the silver wire and into the water, where they will be suspended with an electrical charge.

50 Minutes to an Hour for a 5-10 ppm Batch

Leave the silver wires submerged for about 50 minutes to an hour. Then simply lift the battery off the popsicle sticks, pulling the silver wires out of the water.

Use a plastic spoon to stir the solution slightly, so as to evenly disperse the microscopic silver particles.

When using pure steam-distilled water, this will give you anywhere from 5 to 10 ppm in your 16-ounce ounce batch. And if you used high-quality distilled water as instructed, your batch should be perfectly clear in color. (If it turns out to be cloudy, this indicates excessive mineral content in the water you started out with. In such a case, you can use it for topical purposes, but you should not use it internally. Just find a better brand of pure, steam-distilled water, and start over with a fresh 9-volt battery.)

Don’t be concerned if your pure silver wires turn gray or even black during the colloidal silver-making process. That is simply silver oxide, from the reaction between the electricity, the water and the silver. It cannot hurt you. After you’re done, you can clean the silver oxide off the silver wires with a small kitchen scrubby pad.

And if any of the silver oxide residue comes off the silver wires and gets into your colloidal silver solution during the colloidal silver-making process, don’t worry. Just pour your solution into another glass container through a paper coffee filter in order to catch the visible silver oxide particles. That will solve the problem.

Storing your Emergency Batch of Colloidal Silver

To store your emergency batch of colloidal silver, just pour it into a dark colored glass bottle with a plastic lid or cork stopper. An old wine bottle, or even an old beer bottle, will do the trick nicely.

Some health food stores sell dark-colored amber glass bottles called Boston Rounds, for this purpose. You can even find them online by doing a Google search.

Once your emergency batch of colloidal silver is bottled, be sure to put it into a dark kitchen cabinet, away from bright lights.

The reason you’ll want to use a dark-colored glass bottle rather than a clear bottle, and also store your colloidal silver in a dark cabinet, is because silver made in such a crude fashion is very sensitive to light. If exposed to too much light it will tarnish and fall out of suspension in the water, making a gray looking coating at the bottom of the storage container. Using a dark-colored glass bottle for storage, and placing it into a dark cabinet, prevents this.

(One of the benefits of making colloidal silver with a high-quality colloidal silver generator, such as the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, is that you won't ever have this problem! Indeed, colloidal silver produced by a good, high-quality colloidal silver generator is so stable it can be stored even in clear glass bottles.)

If you don't have a dark colored glass bottle to store your silver in, simply use a clear glass bottle, and put it into a child's lunch sack to keep the light out. Then put the bottle and sack into a cabinet for storage.

You can use a plastic bottle instead of glass, if that's all you have available. But your colloidal silver will keep much longer if you store it in glass. Plastic tends to draw silver particles to it, due to the effects of static electricity. And when your silver particles start to stick to the sides of the plastic storage container they lose their electrical charge and become worthless, medicinally speaking. So glass storage bottles are always best.

If you need to make additional emergency batches, you can use the two strands of pure .999 fine silver over and over again.

Important Disclaimer

Colloidal silver made this way should be used for emergency purposes only, when store-bought colloidal silver is unavailable, and you do not have access to a high-quality, professionally manufactured colloidal silver generator such as the ones at The Silver Edge (i.e.,

That's because, when you make colloidal silver in this crude fashion, there are no rate-limiting electronics or other technology controlling the flow of electrical current, and the rate and size at which the silver particles leave the silver wire. And thus, the size of the silver particles you produce through this method will be rather large. The silver particles will also tend to agglomerate into larger particle clusters.

Colloidal silver of such a low-quality and large particle size is certainly not something you’d want to be ingesting on a daily basis for the rest of your life. After all, overly large silver particles are not easily processed by the human body. And if taken over long periods of time, they may increase your risk of argyria, or skin-greying.

That’s why, for regular usage, you want professionally manufactured colloidal silver – either purchased through a reputable health food store vendor, or made yourself with a professionally designed, high-quality colloidal silver generator.

Generally speaking, your emergency batch of colloidal silver won’t cause you any harm, as long as it is only used as a temporary, stop-gap measure until you can find some commercially prepared colloidal silver, or a high-quality colloidal silver generator to make it.

Indeed, your little emergency batch of colloidal silver could even help save your life, or the life of someone you love, during a crisis situation in which access to high-quality colloidal silver becomes problematic.

But if you plan on making and using colloidal silver regularly, as a means of boosting your family’s health and vitality and keeping them safe from infection and disease, this is definitely not the way to make it. A word to the wise should be sufficient.

Colloidal Silver and Swine Flu: 7 Important Steps to Take Now

Colloidal Silver and Swine Flu: 7 Important Steps to Take Now

The U.S. news media is slowly admitting to the strange nature of the virus – even finally admitting that it is indeed a hybrid of pig, bird and human flu strains. However, they are still straining to explain how such an amalgamation of viruses came into being.

The latest wild claim from the health authorities is that pigs are acting as “living storage and incubation chambers” for a variety of viruses, including viruses from other animals such as ducks and chickens, as well as from humans. These viruses then manage to share their DNA with each other while living in the pigs, forming deadly, never-before-seen viral hybrids. The pigs then somehow release these viral hybrids back into the environment, where they infect people.

Occam’s Razor – the maxim that the simplest explanation is usually the truth – would tend to cast doubt on that explanation. After all, the simplest explanation is that this is a laboratory produced virus that got loose, or was turned loose. Whatever it is, let’s hope its current rate of spread is somehow mitigated in the days and weeks ahead.

Colloidal Silver Decimates Flu Virus

As this report from Dr. Eric Gordon, MD and Dr. Kent Holtorf, MD points out, colloidal silver has been proven to be effective against a whopping 24 of the major viruses known to be causative of URTIs, i.e., upper respiratory tract infections, such as the flu.

But the efficacy of colloidal silver (which they refer to as oligodynamic silver (i.e., meaning only very small amounts are needed to do the job) extends far beyond its powerful antiviral qualities.

Indeed, not only has colloidal silver been demonstrated to decimate many of the viruses associated with deadly viral flu infections, but it has also been proven to decimate most of the well-known bacterial pathogens that cause serious secondary infections during a viral infection, including the following:

Streptococcus pneumonia
Corynebacterium diphtheriae
Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Klebsiella pneumoniae
Haemophilus influenzae
Bordetella pertussis
Mycobacterium (Tuberculosis)
Inflammatory conditions of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat
Spring Catarrh

It is these secondary bacterial infections that often kill the infected individual, once the flu virus has sufficiently weakened the body. But colloidal silver’s powerful, broad-spectrum anti-pathogen qualities covers such a wide range of pathogens you can easily see why the report’s authors – both respected medical doctors -- refer to it as “the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues.”

In just a minute, I'm going to give you seven extremely important things you can do right now to protect yourself and your family in the event the current crisis turns into a global pandemic, as some health authorities are now predicting. But first, here's the latest news update on the spread of the "swine flu," as of Monday April 27th.

Latest "Swine Flu" News Update

Google earth map now shows massively increased flu clusters in North America and Europe. As of today, the EU health chief advised European travelers “Don’t travel to U.S.”

The situation in Mexico continues to deteriorate, with 2,000 people now hospitalized with “serious pneumonia,” and a confirmed death toll of 149. What’s more, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control has finally advised Americans “Avoid travel to Mexico”; this, after the U.S. infection rate doubled in the past 48 hours, chiefly from infected American returning from Mexico and infecting others.

Russia has announced it will now check all flights coming into that country from the U.S., Canada, Mexico and South America, and that they have banned all imported pork from the southwest U.S., Mexico, and Central and South American countries, in spite of protestations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control who claim the virus cannot be passed from eating pork. China, the Philippines and Taiwan have followed suit and have also banned imported pork from the U.S. and Mexico, in an effort to keep the “swine flu” from entering their countries. (Do they know something we don’t?)

The World Health Organization has moved one step closer to declaring the disease to be a “global pandemic.” And Mexico is now being roundly criticized by global health authorities, for failing to follow up with families of deceased “swine flu” victims, to offer treatment and distribute medicines to them, since they are the most likely to become infected and accelerate the spread of the disease.

And finally, President Obama has said not to worry, because the federal government is “closely monitoring the situation.” (I feel better already. Don’t you?)

What to Do Now: 7 Important Steps to Take Now

The best thing to do at present is to simply get prepared. If this does not turn out to be the predicted “global pandemic,” then preparing now will put you one step ahead of everyone else when a major health crisis finally does hit.

Here are 7 important steps you should consider taking right now in order to protect yourself and your family:

Step #1: Get a high-quality colloidal silver generator NOW, while they are still available. If this turns into a global pandemic, you simply will not be able to find colloidal silver generators at any price, any where. And you can rest assured that health food stores will have their shelves stripped bare of bottled colloidal silver. So if you don’t have a colloidal silver generator, you’ll have to find someone who does in order to obtain colloidal silver.

Most companies that sell colloidal silver generators stock no more than 20 completed units at a time. In fact, many of them build only one unit at a time, after receiving an order, which is why some companies can take up to three weeks just to get a unit out to you.

Our good friends at The Silver Edge are generally the exception to this rule. But as of Friday night April 24 they had fewer than 500 units in stock, and as of today their stock is being severely depleted due to the crisis. They tell us they have a rush order in for additional parts and components, but once their present stock sells out, it will take at least several weeks to receive the new parts, and as many as several more weeks to build up a new stock of generators. So it is important to act quickly and decisively if you have not yet obtained a high-quality colloidal silver generator for your family.

We strongly recommend the brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, because the most recent studies have demonstrated that the smaller the silver particle size, the more effective silver is at preventing even the most deadly of viruses from bonding with the human cell host. And if viruses can’t bond with their human cell host, then they can’t replicate and spread. They are dead in the water, so to speak.

The Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator produces silver particles as small as .0008 microns in size, which is a fraction of a single micron. This is an astonishingly small particle size. Plus, unlike other generators that can only make small eight ounce or 16 ounce batches at a time, the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator makes a full quart at a time, and it is as easy to use as a coffee maker.

Step #2: Stock up on steam-distilled water. Pure steam-distilled water makes the very best colloidal silver. Make sure you get at least four or five gallons, so you can make plenty of colloidal silver for family members, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. should the disease spread as predicted. Distilled water keeps for many, many months at a time. You don’t have to worry about it going bad. Just buy four or five gallons and set it on a shelf in the garage, or indoors in a cabinet or closet. Then use it as you need it to make colloidal silver.

Steam-distilled water is available from just about any major chain supermarket for under $2 a gallon. We have always had good luck with the pure steam-distilled water from Wal-Mart, which is even cheaper, averaging about a buck a gallon in most parts of the country.

Step #3: Get several small pump spray bottles that you can use to spray colloidal silver with. These can be plastic, or glass. Glass is always preferable if you plan on storing colloidal silver in the pump spray bottle for weeks at a time. But plastic will work just fine for shorter periods of time. Pump spray bottles can usually be found at your local Wal-Mart, or in the gardening department of your local Home Depot or similar store.

If they are sold out, go to the over-the-counter medicines department in your local pharmacy, and buy a pump spray bottle full of Chloraseptic, or Triaminic, or any other “sore throat spray.” You can take the bottle home, dump the contents, clean the bottle out thoroughly with soap and warm water, and then rinse again thoroughly with warm water. Then fill it with colloidal silver.

Pump spray bottles are important because they are so versatile. First of all, they allow you to spray a fine colloidal silver “mist” over areas such as countertops, door knobs, toilet handles, knobs and faucets or any other high contact surface areas where bacteria, viruses and other pathogens are concentrated. The tiny silver particles air dry to the surface, and provide many hours of protection. During a health crisis, do this every time a visitor comes and goes from your house.

Secondly, you can use a pump spray bottle to lightly “mist” the air in your home with colloidal silver, walking from room to room and spraying toward the ceilings in order to let the ambient air carry the light silver mist throughout the room.

Third, you can use a pump spray bottle to “huff” colloidal silver. In other words, if you’ve been around a person you think may have been infected, you can go home and open your mouth and spray a light mist of colloidal silver directly into your mouth while simultaneously breathing in deeply in order to get the tiny silver particles deep down into your lungs where viruses may have lodged.

Fourth, knowing that viruses and other pathogens often enter through the eyes and ears, you can use your pump spray bottle to lightly spray the outside of your ear, behind your ear, and even directly into your eyes (it won’t hurt you).

Additionally, pump spray bottles are great for spraying colloidal silver onto open sores, cuts, burns or other wounds, in order to keep them infection-free. Simply spray lightly over the affected area, and then let it air dry. The tiny particles of colloidal silver will adhere to the affected area, and protect it, also increasing healing time, which is vital when infections of any kind are rampant.

Step #4: Get a small nasal “squeeze spray” bottle so you can spray colloidal silver up your nose and get it deeply into your sinuses, should you feel an infection coming on, or should you be exposed to a person who may be infected. Carry this in your pocket or purse, or in your car, with you at all times. These little nasal “squeeze spray” bottles are generally available at any Wal-Mart or pharmacy.

If necessary, for about a dollar you can go to any pharmacy and purchase a tiny, two ounce plastic nasal spray bottle full of saline solution, which is used by allergy sufferers to clean their nasal passages and sinuses. Simply open the lid, pull the little plastic spray tip off the top of the bottle, dump the saline solution out, rinse the inside of the bottle thoroughly with warm water, and then re-fill it with colloidal silver. Filling the bottle only half-way actually makes it “mist” better when you spray it up your nose; you want that fine mist because it carries the tiny silver particles deep into the sinuses and even into the lungs, where any hidden viruses can be dealt with).

Step #5: Get a couple of eye-droppers while you are out visiting your local Wal-Mart or pharmacy. As I mentioned earlier, viruses and other pathogens often enter the body at the eyes and ears. For example, when you shake hands with an infected person, or touch a countertop, door handle, or other surface which have viruses on them, and then inadvertently touch your finger to your eye or ear, you can easily become infected. But you can often stop the infection dead in its tracks simply by applying a few drops of colloidal silver to the eyes or ears.

I apply a drop or two of colloidal silver to my eyes up to several times a day, anytime I’ve been out in public where people have been coughing around me. And under those same circumstances, I’ll put a drop or two into my ear canal at night, when I lay down to sleep. You can find an article on using colloidal silver in the ears on the Colloidal Silver Secrets blog, here.

Step #6: Get surgical style face masks, so if the flu outbreak strikes you area and you absolutely have to go out in public, you’ll have at least some measure of protection from breathing in the viral pathogen.

You’ve no doubt seen the televised news reports of health authorities and police in Mexico passing out surgical style face masks on the streets. But don’t count on that happening here. Our government simply doesn’t have the face masks in stock, or the manpower to pass them out. So you should do everything you can to get some surgical style face masks as quickly as possible.

We found face masks at our local Wal-Mart, and some more at our local retail Croal’s Rexall pharmacy, last night. If the so-called “swine flu” strikes your area, face masks will indeed be sold out overnight, just like what happened in Mexico City this weekend. So don’t put this off.

Painters face masks will work too. You can get them at any paint supply store, hardware store, Home Depot, etc.

If you can’t find face masks, get oversized neckerchiefs from your local Wal-Mart or clothing store, and use those like a face mask, just like you’ve seen them do in the old cowboy movies when the bad guys cover their faces from the nose down in order to avoid recognition, or like the cattle hands do in order to keep from breathing in dust during a cattle stampede. The point is to get something that’s easy enough to breathe through to cover your nose and mouth, and yet just thick enough to help filter out aerial viruses and other pathogens from people around you coughing.

Step #7: Get a few bottles of antimicrobial soap while you’re out shopping. I know there’s been some controversy about this in the past, with some authorities claiming the use of antimicrobial soap can actually worsen the situation over time by allowing pathogens on your hands to mutate and develop immunity. But we are not talking about using this soap every day for the rest of your life. We’re talking about using it during a massive flu outbreak in your area. At that point, it will be absolutely essential to keep your hands clean and pathogen free.

As you know, health authorities always emphasize that washing your hands repeatedly during the day is of utmost importance during a flu outbreak. And they are right. Using a good, high-quality antimicrobial soap is vital, too. Doctors use them every single day, and there are no real problems, contrary to the shrill warnings of the skeptics. If you get the liquid kind that comes in a pump dispenser, you can even take the lid off and add an ounce or so of colloidal silver to it, then shake it up thoroughly.

Short of that, simply use your pump spray bottle (see Step #3 above) to lightly spray your hands with colloidal silver after washing and drying them. Then let them air dry by waving your hands in the air for a moment. The tiny silver particles will adhere to your skin and provide an added layer of protection against pathogens of all sorts.

Get Educated

In the meantime, get educated about colloidal silver usage. If you haven’t done so already, go through this blog and read through the 50 or so posts on colloidal silver and its usage that have been posted there over the course of the past year. Just click on the little arrow symbol next to the name of each month in the blog’s Archives, which is located in the column on the right-hand side of the page.

If you haven’t done so already, be sure to get a high-quality colloidal silver generator for your family. And certainly consider learning more about surviving pandemics and other major crises such as terrorist bioterrorism attacks, by visiting our web site and reading about our excellent books, such as The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, The New Bioterrorism Manual: Secrets for Survival, The Ultimate Immune System Repair Manual, and You CAN Survive the Coming Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Attacks on U.S. Cities.

You’ll be glad you checked them out, I promise.

Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way

Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way

by Angela M. Kaelin

Almost everyone has suffered from an ear infection at one time or another. It is such a common childhood disorder that most children experience an ear infection before the age of four. Some adults are chronic sufferers.

Untreated, or improperly treated, these infections can lead to hearing loss.

Conventional treatments typically involve multiple doctor visits, the use of problematic antibiotics, potentially liver-damaging painkillers, and in more severe cases, surgeries, involving dangerous anesthesia and the actual puncturing of the eardrum.

Knowing the dangers of over-prescribing allopathic antibiotics, some of the more conservative doctors will take a “wait and see” approach to an ear infection, hoping that it will go away on its own. This approach can allow the condition to worsen before they resort to their risky drug and surgery treatments.

Fortunately, there is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to ear infections. It is safer, far less expensive and it works very fast to put an end to pain and infections in the ears. A few drops of a safe yet powerful mineral supplement known as colloidal silver can stop the trouble of ear infection over night!

How Ear Infections Start

Ear infections have a number of different causes. Popular swimming holes and public pools can be the source of fungi or bacteria-contaminated water that enters the ear and irritates the canal. Commonly known as “swimmer's ear,” this condition is medically known as otitis externis. It can also be caused by eczema in the ears, or by too vigorously cleaning or scratching the opening of the ear. It is generally characterized by moderate pain, particularly during chewing and swallowing, or if the infected ear is tugged upon.

Ear infections are most prevalent in winter and in spring because bacteria from respiratory infections, allergies and colds can reach the ears. Most of the time, it is the small conduit in the ear called the Eustachian tube that becomes blocked or infected. This tube reaches from the nasal cavity to the middle ear. It is so small that even cigarette smoke or air pollution can irritate it and cause it to swell, causing nausea and vertigo. Infections of the Eustachian tube and the middle ear are called otitis media.

Middle ear infections are so common in small children because the Eustachian tubes are very tiny and they have not hardened yet. So, they are easily irritated and penetrated by pathogens. Children in preschools where they are exposed to respiratory bacteria and viruses are particularly vulnerable.

Conventional Treatments Can Be Extreme

Before allopathic doctors treat the actual ear infection, they will likely treat the pain with a painkiller or anti-inflammatory. Typically, doctors prescribe the painkillers acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Acetaminophen, commonly known as Tylenol, can be toxic to the liver and has been linked to other health problems. Ibuprofen, commonly known as Motrin and Advil, can irritate the esophagus and stomach.

The doctor will usually prescribe antibiotics to target particular pathogens. Sometimes they don't prescribe the right one, or the bacteria mutate and become resistant, and additional antibiotics must be prescribed.

In the case of chronic ear infection where the fluid builds up behind the eardrum and presents a danger of bursting it, the doctor may prescribe on-going treatment with antibiotics. When these treatments fail, they may recommend surgery to remove adenoids and insert a tympanosty tube for drainage. To insert this tube, they actually puncture the eardrum. This tube may fall out on its own accord after a few months, or further surgery may be required to remove it. This procedure results in complications in about half of the cases. Complications include hearing loss.

Frequent visits to the doctor to check on progress will be required. If they do resort to surgery they will give you or your child a general anesthesia. Common side effects are nausea, muscle aches and dizziness. In rare cases, there are more serious complications and even death. But, even minor complications or rare ones are too much when the whole thing is entirely unnecessary!

Colloidal Silver Keeps It Simple

Colloidal silver is perhaps the world’s simplest and most effective cure for ear infections. That’s because it is all-natural, comes in liquid form which can easily be dropped into the ear using a standard eyedropper, and is easily available over-the-counter at health food stores or through internet sources. What’s more, unlike conventional prescription antibiotic drugs which are designed to work against specific classes of bacteria, and won’t work at all against fungal pathogens or viruses, colloidal silver has very broad spectrum antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal qualities. Indeed, it almost always works regardless of what’s causing your infection.

And unlike conventional antibiotic drugs, colloidal silver can’t contribute to the problem of mutating pathogens, because it doesn't work the same way conventional antibiotic drugs do. Instead of essentially poisoning the pathogens like antibiotic drugs do, the tiny, sub-microscopic particles of pure mineral silver in colloidal silver simply adhere to the cell walls of harmful microorganisms, inhibiting enzyme production and, in effect, smothering them. If the silver particles are small enough, they can even adhere to the DNA of viruses, and disrupt the ability of the viruses to replicate, altogether preventing the spread of viral infections.

Both bacteria and viruses can be present in cases of ear infection. And oft-times a fungus can be involved, as is commonly the case with swimmer's ear. Clearly, conventional antibiotic drugs are inadequate treatments for such infections since they are completely ineffective against fungal and viral pathogens, and in many cases barely effective against bacteria. But colloidal silver known to be effective against all of these pathogens.

How to Use Colloidal Silver to Treat Ear Infection*

According to the experienced colloidal silver users we’ve interviewed, less is more when it comes to treating ear infections with colloidal silver.

You see, even though the pain of an ear infection can be excruciating, the area affected is actually very small. The part of the ear most commonly affected, the Eustachian tube, is tiny. People unfamiliar with colloidal silver usage might be tempted to administer copious amounts of the substance into the ear in an attempt to end suffering faster. But, three drops in the affected ear, once or twice per day at most, should be sufficient. Any more is not only a waste, but it can be counterproductive to effective treatment.

That’s because silver is such a powerful anti-microbial substance, using too much of it can leave tiny silver particles deep inside the ear canal, and on the ear drum itself, which can inhibit the growth of healthy bacteria, causing a temporary imbalance that in some cases leads to sensations of vertigo. This usually disappears within 24 to 48 hours after you discontinue colloidal silver usage. But it can be avoided altogether simply by limiting the use of colloidal silver in the ears to just a few drops, once or twice a day during the course of the ear infection.

To safely administer colloidal silver, it is best to lie down on your side with the affected ear pointing upward.

Using a standard eye dropper, place no more than three drops of colloidal silver at the opening of the ear canal, and allow it to drain down into the ear. If necessary, gently tug and release the ear lobe several times, in order to help the drops seep more quickly down into the ear canal.

(If you are administering the drops into a child's ear, you might have the child lie with his or her head in your lap. Use no more than two drops of colloidal silver with small children.)

Remain in this position for six or seven minutes, allowing the colloidal silver plenty of time to seep down into the ear and begin killing the microbes. Then simply turn your head so that the affected ear is pointed downward, and allow the colloidal silver to drain out, using a clean piece of tissue paper to wipe it from the ear.

Colloidal silver works fast, but if you are still having symptoms of an ear infection several hours after the first application, wait a half a day and insert another two or three drops into the affected ear. In many cases, an ear infection clears overnight after the first application. But sometimes it takes two or three applications before results are noticed.

Also, taking an oral dose of colloidal silver – for most people, two or three teaspoons full twice a day during the course of the earache – can be extremely beneficial.

Obviously, if an ear infection does not clear up within a day or two at the very most, be sure to consult with your doctor again. There are very few pathogens colloidal silver is not effective against. But if colloidal silver doesn’t work, it is best to act quickly to get your ear infection treated professionally.

Even chronic ear infection sufferers -- people who have been told that there is something congenitally defective with their eustachian tubes or ear canals -- have found permanent relief from chronic infections with regular oral maintenance doses of colloidal silver (i.e., two or three tsp. per day) and just two or three drops of colloidal silver in the ear daily.

Experienced colloidal silver users tell us that in these rare, extremely stubborn cases, this is a procedure the afflicted individual must adhere to every day, or else the infection returns. But, using colloidal silver helps keep people with these rare chronic infections off the constant cycle of antibiotic drugs, which can contribute to mutated pathogens and potentially serious side effects. (Colloidal silver should only be used continually in the ear under the supervision of a licensed, experienced and trusted health care provider.)

Colloidal Silver is Common Sense

It's easy to see that colloidal silver is a better alternative to treating chronic and acute ear infections for both adults and children. Colloidal silver saves you money. Such a small amount of colloidal silver is needed to treat an ear infection that it is an incredibly inexpensive remedy. It works fast, too, often clearing up an infection in a matter of hours rather than days. Multiple doctor visits and courses of antibiotic drugs become unnecessary.

Children are reassured, too, by being treated quickly and effectively at home by their own parents.

Unnecessary doctor visits, painkillers and antibiotics with unfortunate side-effects and the prospect of frightening surgeries are all things of the past for you and your family once you've discovered the powerful healing qualities of colloidal silver.

Using Colloidal Silver for Healthier Fruits and Vegetables

Using Colloidal Silver for Healthier Fruits and Vegetables

by Angela Kaelin

Many grocery stores and chain supermarkets now sell organically grown fruits and vegetables, which is great because there are special nutritional benefits that come from eating organically grown food. Organic foods are healthier because they are not irradiated, they have less exposure to synthetic pesticides, they have higher nutritional content, and overall, they taste better.

Unfortunately, recent outbreaks of salmonella and E. coli in commercial produce across the nation have cast doubts on the safety of the U.S. food supply.

So how can you enjoy the benefits of highly nutritious, organic foods without risking exposure to harmful bacteria like salmonella and E. coli?

In this article you’ll learn how to use a safe, natural mineral supplement called colloidal silver to keep your family safe from food-borne pathogens that can contaminate commercially purchased fruits and vegetables. And you’ll also learn how to use colloidal silver to ensure the safety and quality of foods you may choose to grow organically in your home garden.

A Serious Problem with Commercially Purchased Produce

Even if you purchase expensive, certified organic produce at your local grocery store or supermarket, there can be significant risk of food poisoning. First of all, there are few special procedures in place to keep organic (or non-organic, for that matter) produce free of harmful pathogens such as mold, fungus, bacteria or viruses. That’s because, in part, you never know how many people have handled the produce, or what kind of sanitary precautions they may, or may not, have used.

For example, many nasty episodes of “stomach flu” are now known to be caused, in reality, by eating produce contaminated with norovirus, which almost exclusively ends up on fruits and vegetables when food handlers fail to wash their hands after using the bathroom.

What’s more, hepatitis A, also known as infectious hepatitis, is also widely spread by food and produce handlers via the fecal-to-hand-to-oral route. As many as 270,000 cases a year take place in the U.S. alone, according to CDC estimates. In one recent incident, contaminated green onions were served to customers of a single restaurant in Pennsylvania, leading to a large outbreak of hepatitis A in the United States. And in Canada, over 19,000 people had to be vaccinated for the virus after a produce worker in a grocery store contaminated fruits and vegetables he was handling. How many incidents of produce contamination and infection go unreported each year is difficult to ascertain.

Meanwhile, the FDA not only employs questionable methods to kill pathogens in the nation’s commercial food supply, but oversights on the safety of both domestic and imported produce regularly fail.

Colloidal Silver to the Rescue

As I mentioned above, there is a simple, all-natural mineral supplement known as colloidal silver which for over 100 years has been known to have very powerful antibiotic qualities. Because it is all-natural, and only trace amounts are generally used for the purposes described throughout this article, it is completely safe for plants, animals and humans. And therefore, it can be used to great benefit when growing organic fruits and vegetables. In fact, prudent use of colloidal silver will virtually eliminate crop-borne pathogens. This in turn helps increase crop yields, and makes growing your own organic produce far less expensive, far healthier and far more rewarding.

What’s more, anytime you can’t grow your own organic fruits and vegetables, and have to purchase fresh produce from commercial sources, you can use colloidal silver as a safe and powerful fruit and vegetable wash to help kill harmful bacteria before they find their way to your dinner table.

I’ll show you how to use it both ways, in this article.

Why Is It Best to Go Organic?

In popular usage of the term, “organically grown” refers to foods that are fed nutrition-rich, naturally decomposed organic materials, such as is found in compost. Growers simply mix the composted materials in with the soil in their garden. In other words, rather than using synthetic fertilizers, chemicals and pesticides that are absorbed into the plants and can in turn contaminate human tissues and cause disease when you eat the fruits and vegetables, organic foods are grown the old-fashioned natural way. Decomposed organic material is used to nourish the plants, rather than synthetic fertilizers and chemicals, giving them added strength and nutritional density.

What’s more, because decomposed organic materials are full of beneficial SBO’s (i.e., soil-based organisms, ranging from earthworms, grubs and beetles, to colonies of beneficial microbes that help break-down the organic materials and release nutrients to the plants), it is well known that plants grown organically have far less chance of being contaminated through the soil by harmful pathogens while they are growing. That’s because the process of competitive inhibition helps prevent contamination.

In other words, the same plethora of beneficial SBO’s which help break down organic materials into simple nutrient molecules for plants to absorb also act to compete for territory with pathogens in the soil, and prevent those pathogens from colonizing and contaminating your plants.

In fact, foods grown in soil that is not rich in organic compost have far greater chances of picking up infectious microbes than foods grown in soils that are rich in organic compost. This is why, for example, crops grown on farms using modern artificial farming methods rather than old-fashioned organic farming methods are far more easily contaminated with potentially harmful pathogens when, say, farm workers relieve themselves in the fields rather than taking time to walk to a bathroom. When there are few SBO’s in the soil to compete for territory with pathogens, the pathogens can colonize and spread easily, and the crops can be quickly infected. But when organic farming methods are used, the dense concentrations of SBO’s in the soil help prevent pathogen contamination from spreading.

Artificial fertilizers and chemicals used in conventional gardening and farming also deplete the nutritional value of the food, whereas organic gardening and farming practices dramatically increase the nutritional value of food. A university study shows that organic foods have a higher nutritional value and they contain more healthful anti-carcinogenic properties. Most people say they taste better, too.

Studies also show that growing food organically dramatically increases yields. The increased productivity of the plants decreases overall production costs, as well. In short, organic gardening can provide you and your family with more safe, highly nutritious, inexpensive food than you may have thought possible.

Dangers of Irradiation

Another reason certified organic foods are widely considered to be superior and more desirable to conventional store-bought produce is because they have not been exposed to the controversial practice of irradiation.

The FDA has approved the irradiation of the U.S. food supply without completely studying the possible effects on human health. Industrial byproducts of nuclear power plants, particularly EPA-regulated, cancer-causing cobalt-60, are used in this process. The FDA's purpose in using these radioactive isotopes on our food is to “sterilize” it, so that it can be stored in warehouses and on store shelves for longer periods of time without spoiling.

They also irradiate food in an attempt to destroy harmful bacteria, but the process fails to fully address the fact that some pathogens simply aren’t deterred by radiation. As the author of this article, “The Unknown Dangers of Irradiation,” points out, “Some [bacteria] are not affected by dosage levels used on foods. These include the botulism-causing Clostridium and Deinococcus radiodurans, which actually repairs its own DNA after exposure. Surviving bacteria pose a concern because they inevitably produce resistant generations until irradiation becomes an ineffective method of sterility.”

In short, for all of its highly touted benefits, the reality is that irradiation can be a very ineffective way to destroy the pathogens that cause food-borne illness.
The FDA Fails to Protect Consumers from Food-Borne Bacteria

FDA oversights on the safety of both domestic and imported food have been extremely inadequate.

The Consumer Federation addresses these failures in a letter to the FDA. It cites the illnesses and deaths linked to outbreaks of salmonella and E. coli in fresh produce sold in stores in recent years. These bacteria are particularly dangerous for the very young, the very old, pregnant women and those with compromised immune systems.

The FDA has no special guidelines for inspecting either domestic or imported produce. Surprisingly, only a small percentage of imported food of any kind is inspected by the FDA. According to this May 2007 article in USA Today, only 1.3% is government inspected and most of this is found to be “unfit for human consumption.”

Even if these food products are inspected, and manage to pass inspection, they can be contaminated later, during processing. For example, as mentioned earlier, the people handling your food in the grocery store before you bring it home can easily contaminate fruits and vegetables simply by failing to follow proper sanitary procedures after using the restroom.

The Solution?

Clearly, the government is not adequately protecting your health or that of your family. So you are going to have to protect yourself.

The best solution, of course, is to grow your own organic fruits and vegetables, whenever you can, and use safe, natural colloidal silver to help eliminate any harmful pathogens, and to help boost the vitality and yield of your plants.

And if you absolutely have to purchase your fruits and vegetables from commercial sources, you can also use colloidal silver as a produce wash to help eliminate harmful pathogens before you eat them.

Why Use Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal silver is widely known as the world’s most powerful natural antibiotic and antiseptic substance. For centuries, people have harnessed the power of silver to prevent contamination by pathogens and to fight infections of all sorts.

For example, to this day silver-based products are used in hospitals on burn victims to help keep their burnt flesh from becoming infected by the deadly pseudomonas bacteria. In many hospitals silver is still placed in newborn babies’ eyes at birth in order to prevent infectious microbes in the mother’s birth canal from infecting the baby’s eyes and causing blindness. Silver is also now used in catheters, to prevent urinary tract infections. It has been used in wound dressings to prevent infections since the late 1800’s. It is used in diabetic stockings to prevent diabetic ulcers from becoming infected. It is used in the NASA Space Shuttle for purification of the water supply for the astronauts. Indeed, it is now so widely used in medical, business, military and industrial applications that it has literally become the fastest growing natural antiseptic agent in the world, in terms of usage.

What’s more, silver is the most broad-spectrum antibiotic on the face of the earth. It is known to kill up to 650 different pathogens, while prescription antibiotic drugs kill only a handful each. And it generally takes only a very small amount of silver to do the job, which makes it harmless to humans due to the low levels used. Finally, silver, being completely natural, has never been demonstrated to cause pathogens to mutate.

There are two extremely compelling reasons to use colloidal silver when growing food organically:

First, bacteria, fungus and other pathogens attack plants just like they attack humans. And the healthier your plants are, the better able they are to withstand these pathogenic onslaughts. Using very small amounts of colloidal silver in the soil around your plants allows them to absorb some of the microscopic silver particles, which in turn helps make them super-resistant to pathogens. This in turn increases your crop yield. But more importantly, it helps protect you and your family from ingesting foods contaminated with pathogens.

Second, lightly spraying colloidal silver onto the stem and leaves of your plants prevents unhealthy pathogens such as fungus, bacteria and even viruses from colonizing the outer surfaces of the plants.

In short, the use of colloidal silver makes for healthier plants, and healthier plants have a better chance of fighting off harmful microorganisms. Not only is silver in trace amounts harmless to human beings, but silver absorbed into the plants you eat has significant added health benefits for you, too, including superior immune support and more rapid healing. (For more on this important topic, see chapter 10 in the book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, titled “How Silver Provides Surprising Nutritional Support to Human Biological Function and Immunity.”)

The bottom line is this: Silver is a mineral vital to human health and immunity, and regularly eating fruits and vegetables grown organically in soil containing trace amounts of silver can provide an added layer of protection for your own health and well-being.

What’s more, spraying the stems and leaves of your plants with small amounts of colloidal silver further enhances their health and vitality, and help keep infection away from you, too.

Safe for the Environment

If you have been following The Colloidal Silver Secrets Blog, you’re probably already aware that some radical environmentalist groups, backed by Big Pharma, have attempted to portray silver as being harmful to the environment by calling into question its effects on soil, water and wildlife. But, these groups often confuse waste from caustic, chemically prepared photographic silver (little used since the advent of digital photography) with safe, natural colloidal silver, which is nothing more than pure mineral silver suspended in water. It’s the same silver that came from the earth in the first place.

What’s more, these environmental groups all too often fail to acknowledge that trace amounts of silver are naturally occurring elements in soil. In fact, much of the earth's farming topsoil is now depleted of its rich natural silver content by over-cultivation. Indeed, in many cases the silver content of plants that for centuries have provided the human body with trace amounts of mineral silver are now woefully inadequate. Adding small amounts of colloidal silver to your organically-grown fruits and vegetables merely restores the natural mineral silver content that has long-since been lost.

How to Use Colloidal Silver on Your Plants

Whether you have a small family garden, or a larger operation, spraying colloidal silver onto your plants and on the soil around your plants is a highly economical way to keep them healthy and pathogen-free.

Only very small amounts of colloidal silver need to be used. If you purchase colloidal silver at health food stores or through online sources in high concentrations, ranging from 20 ppm to 500 ppm or more, you’ll generally save money and you can dilute it with distilled water to 5 ppm for use on your plants. Better still, by purchasing an inexpensive home colloidal silver generator, and making your own high-quality colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart, you can use generous amounts of colloidal silver when necessary, or cover larger crop areas, and you’ll never have to worry about affordability.

Use a simple plastic plant mister available at any Wal-Mart or local gardening outlet to lightly mist all of your garden plants with the diluted colloidal silver. (Don't use plant misters with metal canisters, as the silver will fall out of suspension in solution and adhere to the sides of the canister.) If your plants are experiencing infections of any kind, spray the affected area thoroughly. Multiple applications are safe. Spraying silver on tomatoes can reverse blight after just one treatment. More severe cases of infection may require daily spraying until the problem is alleviated. Spray the plants when you first notice signs of damage.

You can also dramatically reduce mold growth in sprouts by using colloidal silver diluted to 5 ppm in your sprouting tray when you prepare your seeds, either for planting or for eating in soups, salads and other recipes.

Don't forget to spray your indoor house plants, culinary and medicinal herbs, as well. This not only improves the health of the plants, but it reduces bacteria and fungi that can cause indoor allergies.

In the garden, be sure to mist lightly with colloidal silver around the soil of your plants, too. You can do so several times a week if you like. This way, the tiny silver particles enter the soil and are absorbed by the plants, making them healthier and hardier, and better able to withstand any onslaught from fungal, bacterial or viral pathogens. Just don’t saturate the soil with silver, as that could cause a die-off among the many kinds of beneficial microbes that continuously turn organic materials into compost. A little bit of silver misted lightly over the topsoil won’t hurt, and will provide many added benefits to your plants.

Organic gardening is a great way to get your entire family involved in a fun activity while learning greater self-reliance. And using colloidal silver in your garden helps make your efforts more successful and productive, and your home-grown foods significantly safer than store-bought foods.

Use Colloidal Silver to Wash and Disinfect Produce

When you can't grow your own fruits and veggies, protect yourself from potentially harmful pathogens by cleansing your produce in a colloidal silver fruit and vegetable wash.

Use a solution of at least 5 to 10 ppm.

Combine the following:

1 cup of water
½ cup of vinegar
2 tsp. salt (dissolve completely)
¼ to ½ cup homemade colloidal silver

You can soak your fruits and vegetables in this solution or you can put it in a spray bottle and spray them.

Either way, let the solution remain on your food for at least five minutes before rinsing and preparing as usual.

The vinegar in this solution helps to break down any waxy substances that are applied to fruits and vegetables. Water alone will not penetrate them, in fact, many pesticides are designed to be water-resistant. Salt helps to pull out any microscopic bugs. The colloidal silver will safely kill any harmful fungal, bacterial or viral pathogens.

Avoid cross-contamination in your kitchen by washing your hands after each different food you prepare, and by taking care to sanitize any surfaces that have come in contact with raw meat or poultry. You can easily do that by spraying or washing your counter tops, cutting boards and other surfaces with this same solution, or even by using straight colloidal silver.

This colloidal silver vegetable wash is a safe, highly effective way to destroy disease-causing pathogens on your store-bought fruits and vegetables at an economical price. Commercial vegetable washes are expensive, may not effectively kill bacteria and sometimes contain sodium laurel sulfate, a corrosive agent that degenerates human tissues.

Colloidal Silver for Food Safety

The bottom line is that you are the only one who can protect yourself and your family from contaminated food!

Organic gardening with colloidal silver provides a sensible and highly effective solution to the problem of food-borne bacteria and the serious and even life-threatening illnesses it can cause. In addition, when you must buy fruits and vegetables from any commercial source, you can be sure that it is at least safe from harmful pathogens by using your own colloidal silver fruit and vegetable wash as outlined above.

In short, the judicious use of colloidal silver can save you money at the grocery store and at the doctor's office.

Stop Tooth Decay and Heart Disease With Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver, Oral Health and Heart Health

by Angela Kaelin

Good oral health involves more than just clean teeth. It's about keeping the entire mouth and all of its tissues healthy and free of harmful buildup of bacteria and other pathogens.

So, while it's good to have an appealing smile, a healthy mouth has broader implications for the health of the entire body, in particular, the heart. That’s because the mouth is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, funguses like candida albicans, parasites and viruses. And the teeth can be conduits that allow these pathogens into the bloodstream, which take them directly to the heart.

Indeed, researchers have found that poor dental hygiene and bleeding gums could allow up to 700 different types of bacteria to enter the bloodstream, which, studies show, increases your risk of a heart attack regardless of how fit and healthy you are.

While good oral care will alleviate a large part of this very real threat to your health, there are some serious yet little-publicized dangers you need to know about involved in the use of many popular commercial oral health care products.

Fortunately, a safe, inexpensive, all-natural mineral supplement known as colloidal silver – considered by experts to be the world’s most powerful, natural antibiotic -- can easily be substituted for the oral health care products now known to be problematic. Here’s what you need to know:

How Oral Bacteria Enters the Bloodstream

While tooth enamel is hard and inert, beneath it lies the dentin, which is a soft, living tissue comprised of collagen, nerves and blood. It contains channels called dentinal tubules that flow into the root canal, or pulp, at the center of the tooth, which includes connective tissues, lymph and blood vessels.

If the gums bleed or if a tooth becomes damaged from decay, trauma, wear or infection, then bacteria can enter the bloodstream from the mouth. From there it can travel throughout the body.

Studies Reveal Heart - Oral Health Connections

Numerous studies now point to a very strong connection between oral health and heart health.

For example, an article in Harvard Health Publications strongly suggests that pathogens released into the bloodstream through the mouth can harm blood vessels and increase clotting.

An article published at the American Heart Association's website discusses the association between bacteria-containing plaque on the teeth and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

Another article in The Journal of Periodontolgy further links oral pathogens to coronary vascular disease and stroke.

These prestigious organizations all warn that oral pathogens from decaying teeth and infected gums can lead to increased risk of heart disease and stroke because of this flow of bacteria from the teeth to the heart.

Streptococcus is the primary bacteria contained in plaque that is responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. But, an unlimited type and number of pathogens could conceivably be carried from the mouth and teeth to the heart and throughout the entire body.

Expert Recommendations

The experts recommend brushing twice a day, flossing once per day and making a visit to your dentist for tartar removal twice per year. For disinfection, they recommend mouthwashes. While you may have heard of the dangers of sodium fluoride in most commercial toothpastes, you may not have heard that commercial mouthwashes are linked to an increased rate of cancers of the mouth and pharynx.

Dangers of Commercial Mouthwashes

Mouthwashes containing alcohol and other constituents believed to destroy bacteria and viruses are the conventional means of destroying pathogens in the mouth. But, they are not only inadequate disinfectants, but they carry risks of their own. The chemicals they contain can actually cause a disease state.

Alcohol is the primary disinfecting agent in most commercial mouthwashes. A recent study in The Australian Dental Journal points to alcohol-containing commercial mouthwashes as a cause of oral cancer. The research concluded that health care professionals should not recommend them for long-term use. The author of this study, Professor McCullough of Melbourne University, says that these products are so dangerous that they should be pulled from shelves or, at least, come with a warning label.

Alcohol is not 100% effective in controlling pathogens leaving bacteria behind to breed and mutate, damaging tissues over a period of time. The drying effect of the alcohol in commercial mouthwashes can actually cause bad breath, as well.

These mouthwashes often contain other questionable ingredients, such as chlorhexidine, which is an irritant that can stain teeth with prolonged use. In addition, its effectiveness in preventing tooth decay is debatable.

According to a recent article, a few U.K. companies were forced to recal thousands of mouthwash products after discovering that they were contaminated with aerobic mesophile, a dangerous bacteria that can cause lung infections in people with respiratory conditions or poorly functioning immune systems.

Similar incidents have occurred in the U.S., such as the 2005 Food and Drug Administration's recall of mouthwashes infected with Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia), another bacteria that causes respiratory illness.

Of course, the stated purpose of commercial mouthwashes is to destroy bacteria, but the fact that such recalls have occurred seems to demonstrate not only their ineffectiveness, but the recklessness of the companies that produce them.

Safer, Cheaper, More Effective Oral Care

Colloidal silver is a safe, inexpensive alternative to mouthwashes. Traditionally, it is considered to be non-toxic and highly effective in killing a broad range of pathogens. Studies show that it is effective against candida albicans that can cause oral thrush (a.k.a. “thrush mouth”). And anecdotal evidence demonstrates that it can be used to help heal pyorrhea that, left untreated, can lead to deterioration of the jaw and may eventually require surgery.

It also eliminates the causes of halitosis. And it disables the ability of potentially dangerous viruses in the mouth to replicate before they have a chance to spread to other organs. What’s more, according to many researchers it has an overall positive effect on the immune system, leading to a healthier heart and a healthier body.

How Silver Destroys Pathogens in the Mouth

According to researchers, the tiny, submicroscopic silver particles in colloidal silver kill pathogens in two ways: One, they can adhere to the enzyme receptor sites on the outer cell wall of a pathogen, and prevent it from respiring. (In other words, silver in essence smothers the pathogen.) And two, if the silver particles are small enough they can interfere with the reproductive capabilities of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms by attaching to the DNA and preventing the organism from replicating. This also renders pathogens unable to mutate, so no mutations are left behind as with other antibiotics or disinfectants.

What’s more, tiny nano-particles of silver enter the bloodstream and flow throughout the body to safely destroy bacteria, viruses, funguses and other pathogens. If the silver particles are small enough, they can even enter the bloodstream through the rich network of veins under the tongue and in the cheeks.

Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of the bestselling books The Body Electric and Cross Currents, demonstrated in studies conducted at Syracuse Medical University that small amounts of silver in the human body were extremely beneficial to the immune system. He discovered that people with excessively low levels of silver have more frequent colds and other infections, whereas people with adequate silver levels tended to have less frequent colds and infections, and when they do get sick, the illness is very often of a much shorter duration.

What this means is that using colloidal silver as part and parcel of your daily oral health care regimen can have many other very positive beneficial effects on your entire body.

Colloidal Silver for Oral Health

For the health of your mouth and your heart, continue the dentist recommended practice of brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing or using an oral irrigator once a day. And see your dentist for a cleaning twice annually.

But, instead of commercial mouthwashes, consider using colloidal silver instead. Taken as directed on the bottle or by experienced health care practitioners, it is non-toxic, safe for your teeth and gums and it thoroughly destroys all kinds of destructive pathogens.

In short, colloidal silver is the saner, safer and cheaper alternative to potentially dangerous commercial mouthwashes.

How to Use Colloidal Silver as a Mouthwash and Gargle

Hold colloidal silver in your mouth for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing. You can swish it around gently, or just hold it over a problem area, such as a sore tooth or inflamed gums. This allows time for the dentin as well as the surrounding tissues to absorb it.

In order to maintain oral and bodily health, experienced users suggest a maintenance dosage of 1 to 3 tsp. of 10-15 ppm of colloidal silver once or twice per day.

In cases of injuries, infection or following surgery, many experienced colloidal silver users recommend taking up to 10 spoonfuls throughout the day for one week. This increased dosage should quickly destroy any destructive pathogens and speed recovery. For cases of mouth ulcers and sore throats, simply gargle with colloidal silver as you would a conventional mouthwash.

Unlike dangerous allopathic drugs, colloidal silver is virtually non-toxic when used as directed, so there is no need to agonize over the exact dosage. Frequent small doses may be more effective than single larger ones until healing is achieved.

Commercial toothpastes carry a warning about the dangers of swallowing them. And based on the most recent research, commercial mouthwashes should carry such warnings. But, unless you’re one of those rare people who are allergic to silver (which you’d likely already know, because you could not wear silver jewelry or have silver-amalgam fillings in your mouth), you don’t have to worry about adverse effects from swallowing small amounts of colloidal silver. In the small quantities traditionally used for nutritional supplementation purposes, it is 100% non-toxic.

A Final Warning: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Be aware that many common commercial toothpastes contain sodium lauryl sulfate, a substance that deteriorates human tissue and causes mouth ulcers. There are safer alternatives available at health food stores, such as Xyliwhite (NOW Brand), Weleda, Coral White, and Kiss My Face. These products never contain sodium lauryl sulfate. When shopping for healthier toothpastes or other oral health care products, be sure to read the list of ingredients, even if the product labels claim that they are “natural.”

In a pinch, a simple paste made of baking soda and colloidal silver will work wonders to help brush away the daily plaque build-up. Just sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on a toothbrush you’ve wet with some colloidal silver. Or, pour a little into your palm or a small bowl and dip your wet toothbrush into it. Baking soda is slightly abrasive, so brush thoroughly but gently to remove soft plaque and whiten your teeth.

If you do have mouth ulcers, holding colloidal silver in your mouth several times a day for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing will sooth the sores, help to speed healing and prevent infection.

Colloidal Silver - Nature's Dentifrice

Colloidal Silver is the natural, effective, common sense way to maintain exceptional oral health and hygiene. Oral health is necessary not only for beautiful, strong teeth, but for the maintenance of good heart health and, undoubtedly, the health of the entire body. Colloidal silver destroys disease-causing microorganisms in the mouth, and soothes and heals the gums and oral tissues, while also boosting the immunity of the entire body.

It's also an inexpensive and highly effective alternative to commercial oral health care products and the potentially dangerous consequences of their use. As always, colloidal silver puts you in control of your own health care.
