Colloidal Silver and Drug-Resistant Superbugs: How to Protect Yourself

 

You've likely seen the news that bacteria resistant to ALL known antibiotic drugs have now shown up in Europe. And now the Colistin-resistant superbug is here, in the U.S.

The Centers for Disease Control has called the emergence of drug-resistant super-pathogens a "global emergency." And cutting edge doctors like Dr. Garry Gordon, M.D.have pointed out that deaths from antibiotic-resistant superbugs are now the fourth leading cause of death worldwide, topped only by heart disease, cancer and stroke.

Colloidal Silver to the Rescue!

Thankfully, numerous clinical studies have already demonstrated that colloidal silver decimates drug-resistant superbugs with ease. For example, here are three of the latest studies:

  • Clinical Study #1: Colloidal Silver Kills Antibiotic-Resistant Staph, E. coli, Pseudomonas and Salmonella! In this 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 #2: Colloidal Silver Kills up to 99.7% of Six Multidrug-resistant Superbugs! In this fascinating clinical study 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 concentrate inhibited 99.7% of erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pyogenes, 95.7% of ampicillin-resistantE. 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 important 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 #3: Colloidal Silver Kills 49 Different Strains of Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs! In this clinical study 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, pathogens included Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, Methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus 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, the medical authorities know that silver kills drug-resistant microbes. They've known it for decades.

After all, it's been documented in clinical study after study after study after study after study after study after study.

Yet in spite of all superbug infections now being the fourth leading cause of death worldwide, Big Pharma is simply choosing not to use silver, because if they admitted knowing that a few cents worth of silver could eradicate an infection caused by a drug-resistant pathogen, their global multi-billion dollar annual sales of prescription antibiotic drugs would tank overnight.

So safe, natural colloidal silver sits on the sidelines – alone and completely ignored – while hundreds of thousands of people worldwide die from drug-resistant infections. This, even though numerous clinical studies demonstrate silver to be astonishingly effective against the very super-pathogens you're reading about in the newspapers every day.
