Colloidal Silver - Universal Internal/External Antibiotic
ECHO News

Silver is one of the most universal disinfectants known. Silver is as effective as powerful chemical disinfectants and is relatively harmless.

There is no known disease causing organism that can live in the presence of even minute traces of metallic silver. By the beginning of this century silver was a proven germ fighter. A solution known as colloidal silver was commonly used in medicine as a mainstay of antibiotic treatment. Although it was considered to be "high-tech" at this time, compared to today's Colloidal Silver solutions it was technically inferior. One of the drawbacks was the particle size of the silver never reached its optimal ultra-microscopic size and therefore, its highest level of efficacy. Even so, such prestigious journals as Lancet (1914) published the results of scientific studies and examined the many successful uses of Colloidal Silver. Results were phenomenal. Dr. Henry Crooks, an early pioneer in colloidal chemistry, found Colloidal Silver highly germicidal, harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic.

Silver, in its colloidal form, has been proven to be useful against many different infections and is non-toxic in concentrations of 3-5 ppm against all species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and certain viruses. Based on laboratory tests, destructive bacterial, viral and fungal organisms are killed within minutes of contact, Larry C. Ford, M.D. of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School Medicine, Center for the Health Sciences, reported in a letter dated November, 1988: "I tested them (the silver solutions) using standard antimicrobial tests for disinfectants. The silver solutions were anti-bacterial for concentrations of 10 organisms per ml of Streptococcus, Pyogenes, Staphylococcus Aureus, Neisseria Gonorrhea, Gardnerella, Vaginalis, Salmonella Typhi, and other enteric pathogens, and fungicidal for Candida Albicans, Candida Globata and M. Furfur."

Jim Powel reported in a Science Digest article, 1978 pp. 59-60 titled, Our Mightiest Germ Fighter, "Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic." Pioneering silver researcher, Dr. Harry Margraf, believes that "Silver is the best all around germ fighter we have." Dr. Richard L. Davies says "We're Just beginning to see to what extent silver can relieve suffering and save lives. In four years we've discovered 87 important new medical uses for silver." From his extensive experiments with silver in medicine, Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. concluded: "What we have actually done was rediscover the fact that silver killed bacteria, which had been known for centuries....when antibiotics were discovered, clinical uses for silver were discarded."
