Antibiotics are very effective in killing bacteria. This is not a good thing because the human body relies on good bacteria for an array of functions. There are many antimicrobials that we can get through nutrition. When these are not enough there is SmartSilver which is a brand of a colloidal silver supplement. This is a highly effective antimicrobial that can be used as an alternative to harmful antibiotics.
The human intestinal track relies on good bacteria for various necessary functions. Good bacteria fight off bad bacteria that cause infection. The human digestive system relies on beneficial bacteria to break down proteins and ferment carbohydrates. The intestine is also home to yeast that when regulated by good bacteria stay below harmful levEels and produce vitamins. If the healthy balance of good bacteria is disrupted by antibiotics the yeast over populate and begin to poke holes in the intestinal walls. Antibiotics are usually prescribed when it is assumed that the immune system is not working sufficiently, ironically most antibiotics are know immunosuppressant.
Beneficial bacteria are very susceptible to antibiotics. Bad bacteria are often antibiotic resistant due to bacterial mutations most likely brought on by the use of antibiotics. So let’s sum this up: antibiotics do address a bacterial infection, they do not address why the infection occurred in the first place, they completely remove the intestinal tracks defense system, they lessen the whole immune system, and they inhibit the absorption of nutrients.
Silver has been known to inhibit the growth of unwanted microorganisms for thousands of years. The Greeks and the Roman Empire stored liquids like water and wine in silver containers to preserve them. Silver cutlery “silverware” was created to help prevent the consumption of dangerous pathogens. History shows the practice of putting silver utensils or silver coins in drinking water to keep it safe from bacteria all over the world. American pioneers would put silver coins in their milk to keep it fresh. Wounds were treated with silver in World War I. There are records of the use of colloidal silver from 1200 years ago. Silver was a common form of medicine in the western world by the early 1900s.
When poorly made unstable forms of medicinal silver are misused it can cause argyria (a bluish discoloring of the skin). Properly made colloidal silver is completely safe with no negative side effects. There are different brands and types of silver supplements however I believe SmartSilver brand colloidal silver by DesBio to be the most effective and safe. When the silver nano particles in SmartSilver come into contact with moisture they release silver ions. When these ions come into contact with bacteria they cause the oligodynamic effect. This effect includes damaging cell membranes, displacement of ions in the bacteria and interaction with sulphur, oxygen, or nitrogen. This triple attack leaves less of a chance for the bacteria to become resistant.
Like many of my topics this can raise the question “if it is so good why everyone doesn’t know?” Well a big part of that answer is very constant from subject to subject. An attempt at a simple answer without turning this into Leon’s Thought for Politics, Modern medicine is pharmaceutically driven. After the birth of the cooperate class along with the chemical industry our medical schools were converted into pharmaceutical medicine schools. If you would like to know more about this subject you can contact me. A good book on this is “Rockefeller Medicine Men”. Silver lost popularity in the 1930s when atibiotics first came out. They were well marketed and too new to know about side effects and the resistant mutated bacteria. Visit September 12th for PART 2. In my next thought I will share my experience with SmartSilver.
