Silver was used thousands of years ago by the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks for various illnesses and to prevent the growth of algae, bacteria and unwanted organisms spoiling their liquids and foods. The Roman soldiers used to put a silver coin in their water bottles to keep their water clean!
Later Drs used silver as a natural antibiotic, anti-viral and ant-fungal and during the 1st world war they used it to treat and prevent infections. Then along came antibiotics and silver was left behind.
In 1970 Robert Becker claimed that silver had the ability to destroy all deadly pathogens including methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) but it was discredited by the FDA and they have dismissed all evidence and studies on silver!
However, now there has recently been a new study, showing that taking silver at the same time as antibiotics increases the effectiveness of the antibiotics by a factor of x10 or in some cases as much as x100 better! This is a wide range but even x10 better will make a huge difference!
The study was carried out at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Boston, and Jose Ruben Morones-Ramirez, who led the study concluded: “This work shows that Silver can be used to enhance against Gram-negative bacteria, thus strengthening the antibiotic arsenal for fighting bacterial infections”.
In a world where antibiotics are failing and the side effects are growing, this is a very exciting study, putting silver back on the map again!
Hydrosol Silver is the best type of silver and is in a spray form, which means that it gets absorbed quickly in the mouth. It can be taken instead of antibiotics or, as this study shows, with them, to make the antibiotics more effective. There are other reasons to use silver, as an anti-bacterial, an anti-fungal and an anti-viral and it can be used topically on ulcers, cuts and wounds.
Here at The Wyndham Centre we often recommend Hydrosol Silver to people with infections and it has shown to be very effective with no known side effects. Unlike antibiotics it does not kill of all the good bacteria as well, so it does not compromise the immune system even further.
It was recently announced that the side effects of antibiotics given to babies results in an increased risk of eczema, allergies and asthma, so silver would be a much better option.
It is a good idea , to take probiotics when there are bacterial problems, to improve the gut flora which in turn helps the immune system. 50% of your immune system lies in your gut so it is so important to keep it as healthy as possible.
So in this day with the drug resistant bacterias, don’t immediately go for antibiotics, which are becoming less and less effective, try Hydrosol Silver first, it makes sense and it works.
