The overuse of antibiotics are caused by over prescribing to people and overuse with Big Agriculture and livestock. This dangerous problem is causing what is known as antibiotic drug resistance.
As the chemistry of antibiotics becomes more complex; ironically, the easier it is for pathogens to find a way to develop a resistance to them. This has been happening with most all pharmaceutical antibiotics. But this problem doesn’t happen with colloidal silver.
Pathogens haven’t figured out a way around colloidal silver even after thousands of years of use. Before we learned how to suspend silver particles in distilled water as colloidal silver, people used silver coins and silver containers to stop bacteria from growing in foods, beverages, and water.
Antibiotics are even prescribed by doctors when patients have viral infections, which adds unnecessarily to their overuse.
Colloidal silver is an antibiotic, but it is also anti-viral and anti-fungal. Antiviral medicines can be ineffective and dangerous with dangerous side effects or long-term lowered immunity and other issues created by upsetting the gut flora balance.
So why aren’t doctors recommending colloidal silver? Why have countries banned colloidal silver sales just as a supplement?
In the US, the FDA failed to stop colloidal silver sales as a supplement, but they did succeed in enforcing a ban or restriction on advertising colloidal silver products that could help or cure ailments. The FDA has a cooperating relationship with big pharma.
No, You Won’t Turn Blue Like The Colloidal Silver Blue Man
We understand you don't want to look like a smurf, which is the first objection to using colloidal silver instead of antibiotics. This false fear was caused by the media’s publicity of the “blue man” who used massive amounts colloidal silver he made at home adding other ingredients which formed large dangerous compounds. He drank dangerous amounts of a pint or more on a daily basis for many years and developed a skin condition called argyria.
Despite looking like a smurf, he was healthy and never even had a cold for years. Sadly, he passed away from a stroke and heart failure.
Big Pharma and other anti-natural remedy media outlets play a huge part in spreading the negative press about colloidal silver. Ironically, they don't mention the large number of patients who experience serious negative side effects from antibiotics on a regular basis.
How Colloidal Silver Works
Colloidal silver’s antimicrobial is actually recognized by mainstream medicine. They understand what silver does because they use silver-coated surgical instruments and catheters to prevent infections, which is most effect for antibiotic-resistant germs.
The possibility of pathogens developing a resistance with these topical applications was thought to be a slight concern. But when it comes to colloidal silver suspended in distilled water solutions, Lucian Lucia, Associate Professor of Chemistry, North Carolina State University:
… bacteria cannot build up a resistance to silver nanoparticles as they can to antibiotics, because of the way the silver nanoparticle attacks — destroying the structure of the cells and killing them. Antibiotics, on the other hand, suppress the activity of bacteria [dividing and multiplying] but don’t necessarily kill them. That’s the beauty of silver. There’s no way to develop a resistance to it. (http://www.colloidalsilvers.org/silver-for-health/how-colloidal-silver-works/)
