Silver has antimicrobial properties, enabling it to purify milk (which Americans in the 19th century Westward expansion utilized), and water. Not to mention current use in shirts, underwear and socks to kill bacteria and limit body odor. Silver can be found in band aids, and tooth paste.
In the short book titled The Most Precious Metal, by Dr. Gordon Pedersen and Dr. Bryan Frank, the authors say,
“The most precious metal during a crisis is silver, but not because of its role as a monetary metal. Silver is not the most precious metal because of global supply, its current ‘price’, or investor sentiment. It is not the most precious metal because of its role in photovoltaic solar panels or electronic circuits. It certainly isn’t the most precious metal because it makes for a nice set of earrings or tableware. There is nothing wrong with any of these uses of silver, but silver has a much higher purpose that clearly makes it the most important metal any person could own.
Silver is nature’s finest germ killer. Simply by being silver, this most precious metal’s elemental properties are toxic to pathogenic microorganisms while simultaneously being non-toxic to healthy cells and probiotic bacteria.”
Walking a personal silver health path
There are a number of methodologies and within each one, nuances, by which an individual might find a way to restore, maintain or enhance their health. Even so, it should go without stating that those without medical training are not and should not be in the business of giving advice (notwithstanding that in the United States alone, a reported 100,000 people a year die from mistakes by health care professionals).
However, personal experience, known by skeptics as “anecdotal evidence” (as opposed to “studies”, often financed by pharmaceuticals) may be worth paying attention to, as a method of evidence gathering, introspection and experimentation by the individual in the search toward optimizing one’s health.
The following examples have demonstrated to this writer their efficacy over the course of several decades. They have been included because they show how the judicious use of silver in solution may be able to deal with a certain health issues, effectively, consistently and safely.
The product mentioned goes by the brand name Sovereign Silver. No remuneration for naming this source has been offered, nor is expected. Other brands and formulations are available, but this writer has not found the need to try them. SS is a low concentrate (10ppm) five-nines purity bio-active silver hydrosol, with a particle size of .0008 microns. The absence of silver proteins, salts and other compounds means it is as “clear as water” – which is its only other ingredient. (Note: Uncontaminated, diluted silver in suspension will not turn your skin blue!)
Experience #1: After several years of fighting chronic sinus infection and frequent illness – leading to frequent use of antibiotics and nasal sprays to temporarily clear things up, a two year regimen of weekly “allergy shots” was undertaken. This did little to impede the underlying issue of sinusitis and frequent, year-round colds.
Response: Taking silver in gel and spray forms, along with a Chinese Traditional Medicine product called “Yin Chao” – of which there are a number of formulations. At the first sign of a cold/flu (even at 3 am!) two YC tablets are taken with water, and a small amount of silver spray is taken orally and swallowed. If necessary, repeat once more a few hours later. Result: 90% of the time, the “infection” disappeared, usually before arising that morning. In a severe case, where extensive post nasal drainage was underway into the stomach, a two pill dose of “curing pills” generally helped to “finish off” the offending cold/flu bug. 20 years on – still working.
Experience #2: The night before a flight leaves for Argentina, an intense ear ache gets underway, to the point that the area inside and around the right ear is inflamed, accompanied by an intense headache. Response: SS spray drops into the ear canal, rest on side for a few minutes, clear ear canal. 20 minutes later, no pain. Next morning take flight as scheduled.
Experience #3: Morning in a hotel in Mexico. Right eye severely inflamed, burning sensation. Response: Spray silver hydrosol directly into eye (with soft contact lens inserted). 5 minutes later, no inflammation, no pain. No need to continue bringing along a $75 one-ounce antibiotic liquid to place in an infected eye at two drops/hour for 24 hours. (An untreated eye infection can severely damage your eyesight in less than two days.)
Experience #4: After falling off a rock while fishing a lake in Patagonia six hours by car from the nearest medical center, several broken fingernails and a minor lacerated arm become infected. Response: Rub area with silver gel, getting it under fingernails and over the arm’s laceration. A day later, mostly healed/no sign of infection.
The experiences chronicled above have convinced this writer of the efficacy the authors of The Most Precious Metal discuss when they say, “… Simply by being silver, this most precious metal’s elemental properties are toxic to pathogenic microorganisms while simultaneously being non-toxic to healthy cells and probiotic bacteria.”
Always remember: “Do the research. Do the math. The decision(s) must be yours!”
