As Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D. board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has said of colloidal silver: "Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science - natural silver. I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent."
And as Dr. Jonathan Wright, MD, of the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington state has said of colloidal silver: "Colloidal silver just might be the next germ-fighting wonder drug. And not just for the serious threats making headlines: It's also effective against bacterial infections like strep throat, viruses like the flu, and fungal infections like Candida. No matter how much a germ mutates, it can't change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver. And in the process, the silver doesn't harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do …"
Colloidal Silver for Serious Emergency Preparedness
Here are some ways colloidal silver helps you survive in a disaster:
Preventing bacterial growth in your stored water
Purifying water of disease-causing microorganisms when it is of questionable quality
Preventing food from spoiling too soon and stopping the growth of mold, fungus or bacteria
Healing cuts and wounds and preventing them from becoming infected
Treating bites and burns, and preventing them from becoming infected
Boosting immunity and reducing your risk of infection during an epidemic or biological warfare attack
Keeping pets and livestock from becoming infected
Keeping the immune system operating at peak levels during stressful times
Healing infections that have already taken hold
Preserving stored water: To keep stored water fresh longer, add one to two tablespoons of pure colloidal silver per gallon.
Purifying water: In case of an emergency, bacterially contaminated water can be purified by adding two to three tablespoons of colloidal silver per gallon and waiting five minutes before drinking.
Preserving food: Colloidal silver can it is also used to preserve and store food. One to two teaspoons per quart is sufficient to lengthen the life of stored food by retarding the growth of mold and bacteria.
Cleaning food: Colloidal silver is an excellent natural disinfectant for produce and other foods that may have come into contact with bacteria and other pathogens. Keep some colloidal silver in a handy spray bottle and apply it to your food during preparation. Use it to safely decontaminate surfaces in your kitchen and retard the growth of mold on towels and sponges.
Dressing cuts and wounds: Colloidal silver is used to treat cuts and abrasions, speed healing and prevent infection and scarring. It can be applied directly to the wound with a cotton ball, sprayed on or applied as a gel. And, it can be applied to the bandages or dressing before they are it is placed on the wounds.
To treat bites and burns: Colloidal silver is an excellent treatment for all kinds of insect bites, stings and burns, including sunburns. Gently apply with a cotton ball or use a pump spray bottle to spray colloidal silver onto the bite or burn for fast relief. Colloidal silver can be used to treat all kinds of skin irritations as well, including eczema, psoriasis, rashes and fungal infections.
Epidemic or biological warfare attack: In the event of a serious contagious disease outbreak or a biological warfare attack, normal medical care may be unavailable. Fortunately, colloidal silver is a powerful antibiotic, antiviral and anti fungal. According to numerous studies, it is capable of protecting the body from a broad spectrum of infectious diseases. If infection is present, or suspected, and regular medical care is unavailable, some colloidal silver experts recommend taking as much as four ounces per day orally, or more, of a 10 ppm solution of colloidal silver. In the event of a biological warfare attack in which anthrax is used, Dr. Marcial-Vega recommends inhaling colloidal silver deep into the lungs using a device called a nebulizer. A simpler approach, according to experts, would be to put colloidal silver into a small pump spray bottle and spray it into the mouth while inhaling deeply in order to bring colloidal silver into the lungs.
Caring for pets and livestock: Your family pets and valuable livestock will benefit from colloidal silver in much the same way as humans do. It can be used to treat their water, their wounds and their infections.(Source)
Colloidal Silver for Serious Emergency Preparedness
If you’re serious about being prepared for the next big national emergency, crisis, disaster or terror attack, there’s one more thing you need to add to your home preparedness arsenal: colloidal silver.
In an emergency situation colloidal silver can be used as an infection-fighting agent in place of prescription antibiotic drugs. It can also be used to help keep foods from spoiling… keep your drinking water germ-free…keep your household disinfected, safely and naturally and without potentially toxic chemicals.
And finally, it can be used to treat food poisoning, ear infections, sinus infections, sore throat and strep throat, bug bites, sunburns and other types of burns, sick pets, PLUS treat colds, flu, allergies and upper respiratory infections like bronchitis or pneumonia. And last but not least, colloidal silver can even provide protection against potentially deadly germ warfare agents.
Here’s what every serious prepper needs to know about colloidal silver BEFORE the next big crisis hits…
Hi, Steve Barwick here,
Imagine if you will that terrorists hit Nevada’s Hoover Dam, which supplies electrical power daily to tens of millions of people throughout the American southwest (California, Nevada, Arizona). This means crowded major cities like Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas would be blacked out in an instant.
Now imagine the attack is coordinated – terrorists also hit the power grids in the northwest U.S., on the east coast, in the Deep South, and in the Midwest, simultaneously.
Suddenly, hospitals in every city would be shut down, unable to take new patients or properly treat existing patients. Stores would be without power. Millions of families would go without heating, cooling, lights or refrigeration. TV, radio and internet would be gone, along with news and public broadcast warning systems. Confusion would reign.
Municipal water systems – all of which depend upon electricity to get water into your home -- would slam to a screeching halt. And tens or even hundreds of millions of families like yours and mine would suddenly find themselves without fresh, pure water.
Street lights would be out. Food storage hubs that supply grocery stores would be shut down across the country. Military bases would go black. Police stations would be locked up. All major airports would have to be closed. Overseas jetliners returning to their U.S. destinations would have to be diverted to Canada and Mexico.
Everything about your world and mine would change overnight. Think dark. Very dark. There would be nationwide chaos, calamity and unrestrained panic within hours of an attack on the nation’s power grid. Society as we know it would collapse. And the aftershocks – including riots in the streets, fires, thefts, murders and more -- could last for weeks or even months, depending upon the extent of the physical damage wreaked by terrorists on our national power grid, and how long it might take to repair it.
Katrina x 20 Coming Soon
If you can recall events surrounding Hurricane Katrina in 2005, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect – the mass looting of stores…the home invasions...the scarcity of fresh food and clean water…the fires blazing in different parts of the city and no first-responders available to help…police too overburdened to respond to ongoing crime sprees, assaults and home invasions…hospitals shut down…doctor’s offices closed…pharmacies boarded up…people being herded into football stadiums to sleep on cots…you name it.
Then multiply all of that chaos and darkness by a factor of about twenty or thirty, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to experience if the U.S. power grid goes down.
Unfortunately, that scenario is not so far-fetched. In fact, federal, state, county and even local government agencies have been practicing and preparing for just such an eventuality. You’ve heard of various government agencies buying up millions of rounds of ammunition for crowd control and law enforcement purposes during an extended emergency. You’ve heard of federal and state government officials holding “crisis drills” and “mock terror attacks” in major cities to help better prepare first-responders like police, firefighters and medical crews. You’ve probably even heard of the underground “emergency bunkers” and “safe houses” being built for high-up government officials and for the very wealthy, in case of a prolonged SHTF scenario.
The bottom line is that the potential for such an attack happening in your lifetime is very high. And it’s getting worse by the day.
That’s why, if you’re a prepper like me you've likely got some food and fresh water stored away. You might even have a generator or some solar power rigged up to help run your home. And you’ve probably got some extra household goods on hand like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper and pet supplies. Maybe you’ve also got some extra medications on hand, in case they’re needed. And perhaps you’ve stocked up on ammunition in case people are tempted to rob you or otherwise harm you or your family during an extended national or local crisis.
A God-Send for Preppers: Colloidal Silver
But I’m urging you to add one more important item to your personal preparedness arsenal – a unique, all-natural substance that will help you and your family get through such unthinkably difficult times with far greater ease and well-being. And that one added item is a nutritional supplement called colloidal silver.
In case you’re completely unfamiliar with colloidal silver, the first thing you need to know is that it’s an all-natural, liquid nutritional supplement. And it has only two very simple ingredients: Pure water and ionic silver -- tiny, microscopic-sized, electrically-charged particles of silver suspended in the water. That’s it. In other words, colloidal silver is a liquid mineral nutritional supplement, and the mineral suspended in the water is pure silver. Nothing else.
If you take a good, daily multi-vitamin/mineral supplement, you likely already take iron, zinc, copper, manganese, chromium, vanadium and other minerals. Here’s why adding colloidal silver to that list of healthful minerals could be one of the most important and beneficial steps you’ll take to round out your home preparedness arsenal:
Silver is quite literally the world’s #1 most powerful, all-natural infection-fighting agent. That’s because it kills germs. It kills them inside the body, outside the body, and even in the air around you. It stops colds, flu and even pneumonia. If heals ear infections, eye infections, sore throats and sinus infections. It accelerates the healing of cuts and burns, scratches and wounds, and helps prevent them from becoming infected. It also helps reduce inflammation. And it boosts immunity.
In other words, in a serious, SHTF emergency situation in which hospitals, pharmacies and doctor’s offices are closed, colloidal silver is your #1 best substitute for antibiotic drugs should an infection set in. To learn more about colloidal silver’s unique ability to heal infections and stop the progress of infectious diseases, see:
But there’s a lot more to colloidal silver. For example, colloidal silver can also be used to disinfect microbe-contaminated drinking water. In fact, as you’ll see below, it can be used to disinfect your entire household, if need be. Safely. Without the use of potentially harmful and toxic home disinfectants. And without harm to adults, children or pets.
13. Potential help against germ warfare or biological weapons attack
If you don't live in a bubble, you’re likely aware of the potential for the use of germ warfare by bad guys during a terror attack. After the 9-11 terror attacks on the U.S., envelopes containing a deadly strain of anthrax were sent to key government personnel through the mail, resulting in the deaths of five Americans and serious, life-threatening infections for 17 others.
At that same time, terrorist plans to use small, unobtrusive devices called “venturis” to help spread germ warfare agents throughout major cities came to light. The “venturi” device is attached to the outside of a car. As the car is driven down the road, the “venturi” sucks air into one end, and disperses clouds of deadly germ warfare agents out the other.
In other words, a “venture” is designed to disperse clouds of deadly germ warfare agents into the air while the terrorist is simply driving down busy city streets. This could easily infect literally tens of thousands of people in the course of a single afternoon, and ultimately causing complete chaos and shut-down of major cities.
While we may hope and pray a germ warfare attack like that would never happen in this country, we know that it can. But would colloidal silver be helpful in such a case?
The experts aren't telling us the answer to that question. But we do have some strong indications that colloidal silver will indeed work. For example, former CIA microbiologist, Larry Wayne Harris, was asked if there were any natural substances that could protect the population against germ warfare agents, he answered: "The only natural substance I know of that is effective against these microbes is colloidal silver. I tested that myself when I was with the CIA and found it effective against both anthrax and the bubonic plague pathogens."
According to Harris, if you’re already taking colloidal silver when a germ warfare attack takes place, you’ll enjoy automatic built-in resistance. But experts say taking colloidal silver after the fact will have little effect unless you nebulize it.
Nebulizing colloidal silver – which simply means breathing an atomized mist of colloidal silver into your lungs – allows the silver to be quickly and easily carried into your blood stream and from there into the body's cells and tissues. You can view a short “how to” video on nebulizing colloidal silver, and learn more about how the experts say to do it (including dosage information) in the article, Using Colloidal Silver With a Nebulizer.
Another important thing to note is that if you have a good supply of doctor’s surgical masks on hand (which you should, if you’re a serious prepper) you can spray one with colloidal silver and allow it to air dry, instantly turning the mask into an antimicrobial facemask, par excellence. This could provide tremendous protection against germ warfare agents if they were being sprayed into the air in your area. And they’re just plain helpful for going out in public during the course of a crisis when cold and flu viruses might be spreading, as well. You can learn more about turning your doctor’s face masks into antimicrobial face masks in the article Silver-Coated Doctor’s Face Masks Kill Germs.
Learn Even More… As I stated at the very beginning, colloidal silver is the one additional thing anyone who’s truly serious about being prepared for the next emergency crisis, disaster or terror attack should have on hand.
As you’ve seen above, in an emergency situation it can be used as an infection-fighting agent in place of prescription antibiotic drugs.
What’s more, it can be used to help keep foods from spoiling… keep your drinking water germ-free…keep your household disinfected, naturally and without toxic chemicals… and to treat food poisoning, ear infections, sinus infections, sore throat and strep throat, bug bites, sunburns and burns, and even sick pets.
PLUS treat colds, flu, allergies and upper respiratory infections. And last but not least, it can even be used to help provide protection against potentially deadly germ warfare agents.
Not only does it work in the above situations, but in many others as well. If you’re interested in learning more about colloidal silver and its many
13 Ways Colloidal Silver Can Help Save Your Family During a Crisis
Here are 15 different ways you can use colloidal silver to help keep your family safe, healthy and infection-free during the aftermath of a terror attack, natural disaster or other SHTF scenario when chaos reigns and regular medical care might not be available:
1. Keeping foods fresher, longer
Colloidal silver helps with keeping foods fresh and healthy in several ways. Because it's a powerful natural antimicrobial agent, it's great for preserving the freshness of foods. Add one ounce of 10 ppm strength colloidal silver to a quart of milk and you can extend the shelf life by twice the usual time.
In fact, silver is so effective at slowing down food spoilage that Brazilian researchers have developed a milk carton imbedded with silver nano particles, which quite literally DOUBLES the shelf-life of the milk. (Learn more in the article "Colloidal Silver Doubles Shelf-Life of Milk")
But that's only part of the story. What about the fresh fruits and vegetables you purchase at the grocery store, or grow in your garden? Colloidal silver is deadly to food poisoning pathogens like E coli or Salmonella, which are commonly found on fresh fruits and veggies.
All you have to do is soak your fresh fruits or veggies in a bowl consisting of one quart of water plus one ounce of 10 ppm colloidal silver in order to kill any pathogens. Soak for five to 10 minutes, then rinse and store. Learn more in the following short article, “A Simple, Effective Colloidal Silver Fruit and Vegetable Wash”.
Or, you can simply spray your fresh fruits and veggies with 10 ppm colloidal silver before storing them. This same process will not only kill any potentially deadly food poisoning bacteria on the food, it will help ensure that they last longer too, before beginning to spoil. That makes buying (or growing) fresh fruits and veggies less expensive, because you’ll have less waste. For additional information see: Using Colloidal Silver for Healthier Fruits and Vegetables.
2. Increasing the safety and shelf-life of home canned goods
Many preppers and do-it-yourselfers can their own food. Home food storage is a great way to keep the family fed in the event of an emergency. But you want to be sure that your stored food is safe, especially when you’re using a water bath method.
To prevent spoilage add 1 tablespoon of 10 ppm colloidal silver per quart when home-canning. Seal the lids as instructed. For more information on keeping canned foods fresher longer, see Colloidal Silver for Canning and Food Preservation.
3. Disinfecting your drinking water
Probably the most important ingredient in preparing for an emergency is water. You can live for weeks without food. But you can only live for about three days without water. So you sure do want plenty of clean, uncontaminated water on hand during a serious SHTF scenario.
Unfortunately, over time, stored water can easily become infected with bacteria. But here’s the good news: You can insure the safety of your stored water by adding a couple of ounces of 10 ppm colloidal silver to each gallon of water before storing it. Then, months later when you get ready to use the water, add another ounce or two of 10 ppm colloidal silver as a “just in case” measure. Let sit overnight before using, and you’re good to go.
Is this anything new? No, it’s not. For a very long time humans have known that silver purifies water and keeps it safe to drink. Even before germs were discovered, people instinctively knew to use silver to keep water from “going bad.” That's why early American pioneers threw a silver dollar into their water barrels -- it kept their water safely disinfected. This is also why Mexico has used colloidal silver for years as a safe, natural water disinfectant. What’s more, both NASA and the Russian space program have used colloidal silver to disinfect water aboard the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station and on other space voyagers. Even modern-day water filters utilize silver in the filtration process, to help kill pathogens that might otherwise escape the filters.
But suppose you don't have water stored. Maybe you're out in the wilds where you have to turn to nature for water. You might have a personal filter on hand to make sure there’s no dirt and debris in the water as you drink it. But even when the water is filtered, how do you insure it's safe from invisible pathogens? It’s simple: Just add some colloidal silver and allow it to set for an hour or two before drinking it. Colloidal silver is effective against spores, parasites, bacteria, fungus and even algae. So it can be used to disinfect water in the wild. For example, after you fill a canteen with filtered water, just add an ounce of colloidal silver, shake it up, and allow it to sit for a few hours before drinking.
You can learn more about using colloidal silver to keep your drinking water safe and microbe-free, here:
As you can see, colloidal silver has been used widely for decades to help keep drinking water safe and free of microbial contamination. It’s even used on ocean-going cruise ships to help keep the drinking water safe. And now you too can take advantage of this powerful, health-enhancing quality of colloidal silver – not just for water disinfection, but for disinfecting your entire home, as well…
4. Household disinfection made easy If there’s ever a time you’ll want a safe, natural, non-toxic and broad-spectrum disinfectant for your home, it’s during a SHTF scenario. After all, keeping your home as pathogen-free as possible means you’ll have far fewer chances of ending up with an infection when you least need one. And it means your family will have a better chance of remaining infection-free, as well.
Remember, during a prolonged SHTF scenario, as the system breaks down so too will the means to keep your home safe from the spread of bacteria, fungus and viruses. Common household disinfectants will become unavailable. Thankfully, the very best substitute for any household disinfectant is colloidal silver.
• For example, a light spray of colloidal silver under your kitchen and bathroom sinks will prevent mold and mildew from growing. It will disinfect the area, and as a bonus it will eliminate musty smells and odors.
• Add ½ cup colloidal silver to your mop water and you've got a safe, powerful antimicrobial to protect your household from the spread of germs.
• As you clean your kitchen area with sponges, you'll want to be sure to spray them with colloidal silver before and after each use.
• And what about kitchen cutting boards? After washing them, spray them lightly with colloidal silver and let them air dry. A safe and germ-free cutting surface is your reward.
• You can spray colloidal silver inside the refrigerator, and in the food storage bins, to prevent the spread of mold and bacteria.
• You can also use colloidal silver routinely in your laundry during the final rinse cycle, to disinfect underclothing, sheets, dish rags, bath towels, baby diapers and more.
• Or, simply spray colloidal silver onto hanging bath towels, wash cloths and dish rags and drying towels to help prevent souring and mildew.
Here’s another hot tip: Spray colloidal silver into home air ducts and vents to prevent them from becoming breeding sites for germs, molds and mildew.
For more ways to use colloidal silver around the house as a safe, powerful and non-toxic natural disinfectant, see:
But what about much more serious matters, such as fighting an active infection when medical help is unavailable? Well, it’s colloidal silver to the rescue, once again!
5. Treating mild to moderate food poisoning
If you’re involved in a survival situation where food has become scarce and the food you can obtain may be contaminated, you might end up with a nasty case of food poisoning.
Many of us have experienced cases of “stomach flu” over the years. In retrospect, it was probably a mild case of food poisoning such as that caused by E. coli, Listeria or even Salmonella. Thankfully, colloidal silver has been demonstrated in laboratory clinical studies as well as in numerous anecdotal reports to be effective against all three of these common and potentially deadly food poisoning bugs. You can learn more here:
Additional test tube studies have demonstrated that colloidal silver kills many of the other pathogens behind food poisoning including: Campylabacter, Salmonella, E coli, Shigella, Listeria and Clostridium (what is often mislabeled as botulism).
Read how experienced colloidal silver users have utilized colloidal silver to cure their food poisoning cases, here:
Additionally, independent clinical research has also demonstrated colloidal silver to be effective against a variety of food poisoning pathogens. For example, the Harbonne Research Foundaton states:
“Several years ago we conducted some rather extensive evaluations of various
protocols promising effective results against various pathogenic agents which cause 'food poisoning'.The one protocol, effective against ALL agents evaluated, was colloidal silver. A 5 ppm solution
proved effective against all pathogens tested; yielding complete control within 6 to 8 minutes.....regardless of concentration of the pathogenic agent.Control was effected in some solutions
as weak as one part of 5 ppm colloidal silver to 50,000 parts contaminated solution. Among the many agents tested were botulinum, campyobacter, salmonella and listeria
(bacterial agents); and norwalk-like viruses and hepatitus A (viral agents).”
-- Brooks Bradley, Harbone Research Foundation
The bottom line is that during a natural disaster, terrorist attack or other SHTF situation your odds of contracting a nasty case of food poisoning grows exponentially, especially if fresh food is unavailable, refrigeration is out, and existing food supplies are becoming contaminated. Ending up with food poisoning in the midst of a prolonged crisis is no way to go. But thankfully, with colloidal silver you can avert that situation completely.
