TURMERIC 20 HEALTH BENEFITS

The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Tumeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.
The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has revealed that turmeric is a natural wonder, proving beneficial in the treatment of many different health conditions from cancer to Alzheimer's disease.

Here are 20 health benefits of turmeric:
1. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.
2. When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.
3. Prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.
4. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.
5. Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.
6. Is a natural liver detoxifier.
7. May prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease by removing amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain.
8. May prevent metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer.
9. It is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.
10. Has shown promise in slowing the progression of multiple sclerosis in mice.
11. Is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.
12. May aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management.
13. Has long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for depression.
14. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
15. Boosts the effects of chemo drug paclitaxel and reduces its side effects.
16. Promising studies are underway on the effects of turmeric on pancreatic cancer.
17. Studies are ongoing in the positive effects of turmeric on multiple myeloma.
18. Has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in tumors.
19. Speeds up wound healing and assists in remodeling of damaged skin.
20. May help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions.
Turmeric can be taken in powder or pill form. It is available in pill form in most health food stores, usually in 250-500mg capsules.
Once you start using turmeric on a regular basis, it's fun to find new ways to use it in recipes. My favorite way to use it is to add a pinch of it to egg salad. It adds a nice flavor and gives the egg salad a rich yellow hue.
Contraindications: Turmeric should not be used by people with gallstones or bile obstruction. Though turmeric is often used by pregnant women, it is important to consult with a doctor before doing so as turmeric can be a uterine stimulant.



NFC PROTOCOL


Everyone in the smartphone world has been talking about NFC as of late, but what exactly is it and how is it significant to you, the end user? NFC stands for Near Field Communication and is all set to change the way we exchange information while on the go. In this guide, we will go through a detailed tour of this technology and how it is going to impact our lives.

NFC is a short-range communication technology that enables devices to exchange information with other NFC-enabled devices or certain NFC supporting cards, much like the way a card reader scans and reads a credit card. This has several obvious practical applications already developed and in use in some countries, most notably Japan. Furthermore, NFC is an open standard and therefore, there is plenty of room for innovation of further applications not yet developed.

nfc

We will now take a closer look at how NFC works, what benefit it carries over other short-range wireless communication standards, what are its practical applications and what lies in its future.

How NFC Works
Before we move on to its applications, let’s take a look at how NFC works, without getting into technical details. You basically put the back of an NFC-enabled device against either the back of another NFC-enabled device or an NFC-supported card, and the device automatically recognizes it, showing a prompt on screen to read or write information to the device – it really is that simple.

Technical Specifications
NFC is an ISO 18000-3 RFID compatible short-range point-to-point communication standard governed under IEC and ISO specification 13157, amongst others. It operates on a frequency of 13.56 MHz and supports data transfer at a relatively slow rate of 424 kbps, though future improvements will most likely increase this. It has an operating range of under 20 cm and takes less than 0.2 second to establish the connection. Power consumption during reading the data is under 15 mA, though it can be more when writing data.

Benefits Over Other Wireless Communication Standards
Why use a whole new technology, one might ask, when we already have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth etc. that we can utilize for the purpose? The answer: convenience and security.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi communication has a broader coverage than NFC, often ranging between 1 meter to 100 meters. This can lead to two problems. If the devices are set to accept connections without authentication, anyone within this range can connect to them and access the information stored on the other device, creating a major security issue. While this security concern can be addressed by requiring a password for establishing the connection, this leads to another problem: pairing the devices securely using Bluetooth or establishing a secure connection over Wi-Fi involves navigating through the device settings and entering passwords, which takes away the convenience factor.

NFC addresses both these issues by requiring close contact between the devices to allow information exchange, and automatically presenting the available options on the screen for the user to select. Thus, a dozen people with NFC-enabled devices can be in the same room with no password set for NFC communication, yet none of them would run the risk of any unauthorized information access via NFC.

Current Practical Applications
We have seen what NFC is about, how it works and what benefits it carries over other short-range wireless communication technologies, but what in what practical scenarios can NFC be used? There are plenty, to be sure!

- As an RFID Tag Scanner

An NFC device can act as an RFID tag scanner, reading information embedded in form of RFID tags in media such as posters, billboards, brochures, leaflets, menus and other similar promotional or informative material. An example of this would be visiting a restaurant and scanning the menu card by touching your phone or tablet to it, to be presented with the link to an interactive, animated menu on your phone, with detailed descriptions of menu items, their reviews by other users and perhaps even videos of their preparation.

- As a Debit/Credit Card Substitute

NFC makes it possible to replace your plastic money with your phone. Once the information that is usually carried in your credit card has been stored in your phone and made accessible via NFC, you can simply touch your phone to a terminal the way you scan your credit card, and make payments accordingly. This can make mobile ticketing and payments a breeze.

- For Data Exchange

Two NFC-enabled phones can be made to exchange data after establishing a connection by bringing them within NFC’s operation range. This can replace visiting cards, as you’ll only need to touch your phone to that of someone else and your virtual business card can then be transferred to their device with one tap on the screen. Sharing photos and other media on your phone with others gets similarly easy.


- For Bluetooth Pairing or WiFi Authentication

Pairing two Bluetooth devices to establish a connection involves navigating menus to enable Bluetooth, scan for a device, initiate pairing and enter the pass code on each device. With NFC, you will just need to bring the devices together to be automatically prompted to initiate Bluetooth pairing by a tap on each screen. The same can also apply to establishing a secure Wi-Fi connection.

Future Prospects
Apart from the above-mentioned applications of NFC which are already implemented and in use in certain regions of the world, the future prospects of this communication standard are also bright. Let’s take a look at some of the ways NFC is bound to play a part in our lives in the years to come.

- Personal Payments

In the not-too-distant future, NFC will enable you to give your daughter her pocket money simply by touching your smartphone to hers, choosing to transfer money and selecting an amount, which she can spend by using her phone as her debit/credit card substitute at the café, as explained above.

- Keyless Security

Your NFC-enabled mobile device will act as the key to the locks on your car, your safe and your house. Though to ensure no one else can use your phone to gain access, NFC will only act as initiating the unlocking mechanism, which will have to be verified by facial, iris or retina recognition by your phone’s camera, voice recognition by its microphone, fingerprint scan by its touch screen or a combination of these. The result would be secure, keyless access to your vehicles, safes, workplace and dwellings.

- National, International and Corporate Identification

NFC-enabled devices will be used to store to replace your social security/national identity card, drivers license, employer card and passport, with added security measures in form of biometric scanning.

- Social Networking

People will use NFC to exchange personal information with others in social interactions, as well as form personal social networks to share location-based information such as opinions and reviews of others on a business or recreational venue. You can leave your opinion of a place at an RFID tag and other visitors can read it, as well as those left by others, with their NFC-enabled device. NFC-based check-ins at locations can also be used to reward people and offer them services accordingly.

- Entertainment

NFC will make playing multiplayer games with someone a breeze, as you will be able to initiate the game simply by bringing the devices close together.

- Health and Public Safety

Doctors will be able to use NFC to scan their patients phones for live health statistics such as pulse, blood pressure, body temperature etc., which will be gathered by the patient’s device using certain censors. Thus, without directly scanning the bodies of patients and having to keep records of hundreds of patients in their devices, doctors will have quick access to such vital statistics in order to treat them better. This can come especially handy under medical emergencies. Furthermore, patients will be able to use their devices to convey their medical situation at hospital receptions, to be more efficiently and quickly directed to the appropriate department.

Conclusion
The above mentioned scenarios are just a few examples of how NFC will change our lives for the better. With the high level of interest by corporations, NFC bring brought to Android phones by Google starting with the Nexus S, as well as involvement of individual developers and users in this short range communication standard, the possibilities are endless.



SILVER 06 B

Saline solution can be made by mixing six ounces of distilled
water with one tea-spoon of sea salt in a separate container.

Do not use common table salt as table salt has chemical
additives. After stirring the salt solution, pour some of the
water into an eye dropper bottle.

Now you're ready to make Colloidal Silver. Pour eight ounces
of water into your glass. Add 1 or 2 drops of saline solution
(3 drops at the most; if you use too much salt, you'll be
making silver chloride instead!) to distilled water and stir
with a plastic/non-conductive utensil.

Insert silver electrode wires. Placement of wires is not critical,
but they must not be touching each other or the process will
stop. (You cannot shock yourself in this process so do not be
concerned.)

Attach alligator clips to the ends of the silver electrode
wires coming over the outside rim of the glass and you will
see a grey mist inside the glass start to peel away from the
positive polarity wire while bubbles of hydrogen rise from
the other.

Laboratory tests show that this method creates a silver colloid
of approximately 1 ppm per minute of activation time.

Since you are only taking microscopic particles from the silver
wire, your silver wire may very well last for years.

The brightness of the light bulb is related to the conductivity
of the water. It is not necessarily a problem if the bulb is
very dim or even remains dark as long as the process itself is
occurring. (If the bulb is dark you can always consider adding
one more drop of saline solution next time.) Do not add saline
solution after process has begun.

Of course, when batteries are old, the light will also become
dimmer, signaling it's time for a change. Touch the two alligator
clips together to test the brightness of the bulb as a battery
check. A fresh set of three alkaline batteries should make
several hundred thousand batches of concentrated Silver Colloid.

Also, put a few drops of Silver Colloid in the saline solution
to prevent fungus growth.

When finished, detach alligator clips. Clean silver electrode
wire after each use to remove dark oxide on the anode. Use a
small piece of 1/4" thick nylon kitchen scouring pad to polish
dried silver, then wipe with paper napkin to make ready for
next use.

Store your Colloidal Silver in dark, non-conductive (and if
plastic, non-reactive) containers, like empty hydrogen peroxide
bottles. Keep away from light as even room light will degrade
colloids rapidly by turning solution grey or black just as
exposure to light darkens the silver in camera film. Stir
thoroughly or shake each time before using. Keep cool, but do
not refrigerate.

In using your own home-made silver colloid generator it will
become apparent that you now have the power to safely protect
yourself, your family, your pets and plants, your community,
and (through the dissemination of this information), our nation,
from over 650 pathogens, viruses, microbes, fungi and parasites.

Upon creating your first batch of Colloidal Silver, you will
find it tastes the same as untreated water. And it won't sting,
even in a baby's eyes.

Congratulations and bon appetit!

How to make Colloidal Silver


How I ended all disease with three nine volt batteries.


"We now know what 'wealth' is. Wealth is the ability to re
generate life. How many people can you take care of
for how many days?" - Buckminster Fuller

Imagine having your own hospital. Not just any hospital either.
After all, the mortality rate generally drops when hospitals go
on strike.(1,2,3,4) Death due to toxic drugs, unnecessary
treatment, rampant ignorance and a sea of antibiotic-resistant
bacteria make most hospitals the Devil's own playground.

No, I'm talking about a hospital that makes people well again.
Now, imagine that your new hospital is essentially cost free,
works anywhere and is the size of a transistor radio, neatly
fitting in your shirt pocket. Impossible? Not at all. The only
thing unbelievable about it is that every American doesn't
already have one.

The "hospital" I am talking about is a Colloidal Silver generator.

Silver is a powerful, natural prophylactic/antibiotic, used for
thousands of years. Ancient Greeks lined their eating and
drinking vessels with silver, as did many other cultures
throughout the world.(5)

Pioneers of the American West would put a silver dollar in a
jug of milk to keep it fresh without refridgeration.(6)

Did you ever wonder why silverware was made from silver?
One of the properties of silver is that it kills bacteria on
contact in six minutes or less.(7) It may be that gold and
silver were first used as valued currency because of their
medical properties.

Dr. Robert O. Becker, "The Body Electric," recognized a
correlation between low silver levels and sickness. He said
silver deficiency was responsible for the improper functioning
of the immune system. Dr. Becker's experiments conclude that
silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any
side effects or damage to the body. He also states that silver
does more than kill disease-causing organisms.

It also causes major growth stimulation of injured tissues.
Burn patients and even elderly patients notice more rapid
healing. And he discovered that all cancer cells can change
back to normal cells. All strains of pathogens resistant
to other antibiotics are killed by silver.

What is Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process
that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver
into a liquid, such as water.(8) These microscopic particles
can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body.

Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme
that all one celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for their
oxygen metabolism. In short, the bad guys suffocate. Unlike
with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to
develop.

In fact, antibiotics are only effective against perhaps a
dozen forms of bacteria and fungi, but never viruses. Because
no known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of
even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver,
Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different
disease-causing pathogens.(9)

Since there is not enough room to list all the diseases against
which Colloidal Silver has been used successfully, here is a
tiny sample: acne, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, blood
parasites, bubonic plague, burns (colloidal silver is one of
the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive),
cancer,(10) cholera, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea, hay
fever, herpes, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme
disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections both viral
and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever,
septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles,
skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis,
toxemia, trenchfoot, all forms of viruses, warts and stomach
ulcer.

In addition it also has veterinary uses, such as for canine
parvo virus. You'll also find Colloidal Silver very handy in
the garden since it can be used against bacterial, fungal and
viral attacks on plants.

Simply spray diluted Colloidal Silver on the leaves, and add
to soil water.

It would appear highly unlikely that even germ warfare agents
could survive an encounter with Colloidal Silver, since viruses
like E Bola and Hanta, or even the dreaded "flesh-eating
bacteria" are, in the end, merely hapless viruses and bacteria.

To top it off, Colloidal Silver is virtually non-toxic, making
it safe for both children and adults, as well as pets.(11, 12)

In short, anything bigger than a one-cell animal seems to like it.

Nor does one have to worry about that FDA (Food and Drug
Administration) fox being put in charge of this home remedy hen
house. Colloidal Silver is a pre-1938 healing modality, making
it exempt from FDA jurisdiction under the grandfather clause.(13)

So why haven't you heard of it?

I suspect the user friendly economics of Colloidal Silver may
have something to do with its low profile in the media. Colloidal
Silver can't help but shine a spotlight on the expensive and
deadly nature of our pharmaceutical industries, who are bigger
than the Pentagon economically.

For example, the pharmaceutical cartel's relentless promotion
of dangerous vaccines for humans and animals through government
programs have now been linked to everything from increasing crib
deaths in infants (who in many documented cases scream for hours
before dying), to the increasingly common disease, feline
leukemia, in house cats.(14) Colloidal Silver, on the other hand,
is a safe and reliable alternative to expensive pharmeceuticals.

It is true that consuming large amounts over long periods of
time may kill some friendly bacteria in your intestines. If
taking large amounts, you should supplement your diet with
yogurt or acidophilus, or compensate for possible bacteria loss
in some other way.

This is not, however, a serious problem, and unlike antibiotics,
Colloidal Silver does not weaken the body's immune system. In
fact, it is said to give the body a second immune system,
creating a shield against disease of all kinds.

A good quality Colloidal Silver can be diluted as much as 8
to 1 and still be highly effective. An average adult dose might
be one or two ounces of concentrate mixed in an eight-ounce
glass of water, not more than three times a day. However, there
would appear to be a great deal of leeway here, since no toxic
dose is known.

Sadly, some Colloidal Silvers currently on the market have as
little as 1 part per million (ppm) and sell for as much as
$60.00 for eight ounces. However, thanks to physicist Bob
Beck's brilliantly simple design outlined below, you can now
construct your own generator and produce unlimited amounts
of high-quality Colloidal Silver concentrate. And for only
1/10th of a cent per gallon, plus the price of water!

How to make your own Silver Colloid Generator.

While it has been discovered that 30 volts is the ideal for
Silver Colloid production, 27 volts is very effective and
happens to be the convenient result of wiring three 9-volt
batteries together.

Therefore,
you'll need three 9-volt transistor radio batteries,
three battery snap-on lead connectors,
2 insulated alligator clips,
1 "grain-of-wheat" 24 volt 40 mA sub miniature
incandescent bulb,
a foot of 3/32" heat-shrink insulation tubing,
a foot of 2-conductor stranded insulated wire
for clip-leads,
a small box to put it all in, and
10" of pure silver wire (.999 fine).

This should cost under $30.00 for everything. Assuming some
skill with a soldering iron, you should spend about thirty
minutes constructing the generator.

Solder your three snap-on battery clips in series (red to
black) to provide 27 volts. Connect a 24V incandescent lamp
in series with either positive or negative output lead.

Solder the red insulated alligator clip to the positive (anode)
and the black insulated clip to the negative (cathode)
2-conductor lead wires. Insulation is shrunk over soldered
connections using a heat gun or hair dryer.

Cut your 10" of silver wire in half. Bend top ends of your
two 5" silver electrode wires so they can clip over the top rim
of a plastic or glass cup (not metal).

About 4" of each wire should be submerged.

WARNING! Use ONLY pure silver (.999 fine) electrodes. #14 gauge
is the preferred thickness. Pure silver is sometimes available
at electroplating supply companies. Or, inquire at a jewelry
store specializing in silver about who their wholesale supplier
is.

Do not use sterling silver (.9275) since sterling contains
copper and nickel.

NICKEL CAN BE TOXIC. (With this in mind, you may want to have
a chemical analysis (assay) of your purchased silver in addition
to the written word of your supplier.)

If the Silver Colloid is to be ingested or injected, be sure to
use distilled water. Tap water is fine for other uses, such as
for a topical spray or for plants. Also, before beginning to
make your Colloidal Silver you will need to make a saline
solution for enhancing conductivity.

10 HEALTH BENEFITS OF PUMPKIN SEEDS

10 Health Benefits of Pumpkin Seeds

Published on October 14, 2007


benefits of pumpkin seedsThis Halloween, don't forget to save those pumpkin seeds after you scoop them out. Pumpkin seeds are not only delicious but also provide many health benefits. Here are ten:
Prostate Protection
They promote overall prostate health and alleviate the difficult urination associated with an enlarged prostate.
Improved Bladder Function
In some studies, pumpkin seed extracts improved bladder function in animals.
Depression Treatment
They contain L-tryptophan, a compound naturally effective against depression.
Prevention of Osteoporosis
Because they are high in zinc, pumpkin seeds are a natural protector against osteoporosis. Low intake of zinc is linked to higher rates of osteoporosis.
Natural Anti-Inflammatory
Pumpkin seeds effectively reduce inflammation without the side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs.
Prevention of Kidney Stones
They prevent calcium oxalate kidney stone formation, according to studies.
Treatment of Parasites They are used in many cultures as a natural treatment for tapeworms and other parasites. Studies also show them to be effective against acute schistosomiasis, a parasite contracted from snails.
Great Source of Magnesium
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds contains 92% of your daily value of magnesium, a mineral in which most Americans are deficient.
Lower Cholesterol
Pumpkin seeds contain phytosterols, compounds that that have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol.
Cancer Prevention
The same phytosterols that lower cholesterol also protect against many cancers.


PARASITE TREATMENTS 01

Instructions
1
Eat foods traditionally eaten to discourage parasites, including pumpkin seeds, pomegranates, carrots and beets. Aim for 1 to 2 ounces of fresh pumpkin seeds daily. Avoid simple carbohydrates and refined foods.

2
Cleanse your intestines by eating more fiber or taking a supplement. High-fiber foods include raspberries, apples, peas, beans and artichokes. Psyllium, pectin and bentonite clay are all supplements traditionally used to cleanse the intestines.


3
Take a probiotic supplement. Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that inhabit your intestines. When more of them are present, it leaves less room for harmful organisms to occupy.

4
Chew 3 cloves of garlic each morning. For those who dislike the taste and odor of garlic, take a supplement. Garlic is available in drops, capsule, tablet and syrup. A 2006 study published in the "American Society for Microbiology", proved garlic's anti-parasitic activity.

5
Use grapefruit seed extract, GSE. GSE is effective against over 800 bacterial and viral strains, 100 strains of fungus and a large number of single and multicelled parasites, according to Asa Hershoff, naturopathic physician and author. Take GSE according to the supplement label.

6
Try goldenseal. The active constituent in goldenseal, berberine, is believed to be active against single protozoa. Goldenseal should not be given to children under two, nor taken for more than 2 weeks without a break from the supplement. The University of Maryland Medical Center lists the typical adult dosage as 500 to 1000mg in capsule form up to three times daily, or 2 to 3ml of tincture three times daily.

7
Drink 2 ounces to 1 teacup of wormwood night and morning. The sesquiterpene lactones in wormwood are thought to weaken parasitic membranes and inhibit their growth.

SILVER 05


The purpose of this page is for educational purposes only. Knowledge is power, and the public needs to know the truth about colloidal silver and its uses.

Colloidal Silver safely kills over 650 disease-causing bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and molds, has no negative side-effects (the body requires silver for tissue regeneration and promotes the replacement of specialized cells) and is absolutely safe for human consumption.
No adverse reactions with other medications have been observed. Colloidal silver near a bacterium or single cell pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme (its chemical lung) and within 6 minutes the pathogen suffocates. Increased ppm levels of colloidal silver may destroy some beneficial intestinal bacteria; therefore oral administration of lactobacillus acidophilus is suggested. It has been reported that exposure to high levels of anthrax or bubonic or pneumonic plague bacteria, require a continuous level of at least 16 to100 ppm concentration to be effective, however it would only be effective if taken at least three or four weeks before exposure to these bacteria. It has been reported that when ingested, it takes colloidal silver three or four days to go to the body cells in an amount sufficient for
benefits to begin. SO EITHER BUY, OR MAKE YOURS TODAY

Water Purification

Water can be purified by adding two teaspoons of 30+ ppm colloidal silver to one gallon of water. Legion Ella pnuemophilia (Legionnaire's disease) is lethal in water with a temperature of 95 degrees Fahrenheit but is killed when the water temperature is raised to 135 to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Interestingly, water with a colloidal silver concentration of only 20 ppb (parts per billion) kills Legionella pnuemophilia. U.S. regulations currently allow 20 ppb in drinking water. However European draft guidelines removed any upper limit for silver in drinking water based upon World Health Organizations' Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality that states "It is unnecessary to recommend any health-based guidelines for silver as it is not hazardous to human health." Pathogens in water are killed by the addition of colloidal silver.
Waste colloidal silver should not be dumped into drainpipes leading to septic tanks since bacterial breakdown action of solid waste would be impaired.

Colloidal Silver has been successfully tested at the UCLA Medical Labs where it killed every virus on which it was tested.

Colloidal silver in a spray bottle can be sprayed on abrasions, acne, athlete's foot, burns, cuts, eczema, fungi, psoriasis, rashes, scrapes, skin cancers, sunburn, warts, and wounds, etc., and does not kill subcutaneous tissue as does alcohol and iodine. It can also be sprayed in the nose for sinus problems or sprayed into the mouth and inhaled to the lungs where transfer of colloidal silver through the alveoli is readily imparted to the blood. Colloidal silver can also be sprayed into the eyes of newborn infants to prevent infection, or under the arms, which kills odor-causing bacteria but does not prevent skin from breathing, as do many deodorants. Colloidal silver solutions can also be used for colonic cleansing solutions, ear infections, mouth infections, vaginal cleanses, etc..

Colloidal silver is considered natures most powerful antibiotic. It is known to be effective against 650 different disease-causing pathogenic microorganisms, and was tested against anthrax in 1997 by microbiologist Larry Harris. The ability to produce homemade, quality colloidal silver may be your first line of defense against disease-causing biological agents.

Colloidal Silver is proven particularly effective in cases of intestinal troubles. Dr. Henry Crooks found that Silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely nontoxic. Rather than in a chemical compound, the Silver, in the colloidal state, may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with correspondingly better results. All fungus, virus, bacterium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, and other pathogenic organisms are killed in three or four minutes; in fact, there is no microbe known that is not killed by Colloidal Silver is six minutes or less, a dilution of as little as five parts per million, though there are no side effects whatsoever from high concentrations. - "Use of Colloids in Health and Disease," quoted in "Report: Colloidal Silver," Health Consciousness, Vol.15, No.4.

As an antibiotic, Silver kills over 650 disease-causing organisms; resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is absolutely nontoxic. Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have. Doctors are reporting that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera, and malaria, diabetes and severe burns. --Bio/Tech News, 1995

Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute (Sweden's equivalent of our National Institutes of Health), has used Silver in his cancer cure method for many years. He says the whole thing is quite simple. This brought rapid remission in patients given up by other doctors.--"Silver, Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," Science Digest, March, 1978.

Metallic Silver (Colloid) is non-toxic, however, silver nitrate and other compounds of silver are and should not be ingested.-- Bob Beck, D.Sc.

Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver, considering it harmless in any concentration.


Per GERM WARFARE & BIO-TERRORISM, "As few as 8000 spores per person reliably causes a lethal infection. The spores cross the epithelial lining of the lungs and travel to the lymph nodes, where they germinate, multiply, and then spread to other tissues, releasing toxins as they go. Some people are strengthening their bodies in advance with Raw Foods such as Romaine, Spinach, & Carrot Juice and exercise, plus using large amounts of Vitamin C, Garlic & Onion (natural antibiotics), with Colloidal Silver and Zappers to boost their health in advance.
Dr. Robert O. Becker, author of The Body Electric, recognized a correlation between low silver levels and sickness. He said silver deficiency was responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system. Dr. Becker's experiments conclude that silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or damage to the body. He also states that silver does more than kill disease-causing organisms. It also causes major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and even elderly patients notice more rapid healing. And he discovered that all cancer cells could change back to normal cells. All strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are killed by silver.

It would appear highly unlikely that even germ warfare agents could survive an encounter with Colloidal Silver, since viruses like Ebola and Hanta, or even the dreaded "flesh-eating bacteria" are, in the end, merely helpless viruses and bacteria. To top it off, Colloidal Silver is non-toxic, making it safe for children and adults, as well as pets. In short, anything bigger than a one-cell animal seems to like it.

Does Colloidal Silver Kill Good and Bad Bacteria?


Does Colloidal Silver Kill Both Good Bacteria as Well as Bad in the Human Body?

Many purveyors of commercial brands of colloidal silver claim that it does not kill the beneficial microorganisms that colonize the human intestinal tract and provide innumberable benefits to the body such as aiding in the digestion of foods, the extraction of nutrients from those foods, the assimilation of those nutrients throughout the body, and the processing of waste products from the body.

But the truth is, colloidal silver does indeed act as a broad spectrum natural antibiotic. As such, if enough mineral silver reaches the intestinal tract it most certainly can kill off the friendly (i.e., beneficial) bacteria that thrive there.

Colloidal silver simply has no way of knowing a beneficial microbe from an infectious microbe. If the microbe is sensitive to silver, then silver will kill it whether it is a beneficial microbe or an infectious one.

However, taking small daily doses of colloidal silver is not as problematic in this regard as you might think. That's because there are anywhere from three to seven pounds of beneficial microorganisms populating the entirety of the intestinal tract at any point in time. So if you are taking a small daily maintenance dose of colloidal silver – which most researchers put at about one tablespoon to one ounce a day of 5 ppm to 10 ppm in strength – you will not kill off very many of the friendly "gut bugs" that line the intestinal tract.

Why? For three reasons:

One, because such small amounts of colloidal silver get absorbed through the gut and into the bloodstream very rapidly, so much of it bypasses the intestinal tract anyway.

Two, because such a small amount of silver is no big threat in comparison to the sheer numbers of friendly microbes that colonize the intestinal tract.

And three, because the friendly microbes are so prolific at re-populating, any of the comparatively small numbers you do kill off while taking small amounts of colloidal silver on a daily basis will basically be replaced by the very next day by a growing new colony.

Small daily amounts of colloidal silver are taken by experienced users simply to keep a little mineral silver circulating throughout the body in order to prevent silver deficiency related issues, support the immune system, and help the body resist infection. (You can read more about colloidal silver usage in the Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, which will be available soon at http://www.lifeandhealthresearchgroup.com/. Or go to http://www.thesilveredge.com/ and download their FREE report, "What's the Safest Daily Dosage of Colloidal Silver?"

However, it is important to understand that once you exceed an ounce of colloidal silver a day, a fair amount of the mineral silver does indeed goes through the intestinal tract and can kill off larger numbers of the friendly microbes your body depends upon for a number of functions. So experienced colloidal silver users tell us that once they exceed an ounce a day – for example, when taking larger daily dosages to help fight off a cold, flu or other infection – they also supplement with lactobacillus acidophilus, or some other product containing friendly microbes.

Many experienced colloidal silver users suggest that the simplest way to replenish the body's beneficial micro-flora is to eat some yogurt containing high beneficial bacteria counts each day during the time of increased silver consumption, and for a few days after having consumed the larger amounts of silver.

SILVER 03

Here is one quote "In its ionic colloid state, silver is recognized as a germicide, or in some cases as a bacteriostatic. It is believed that silver is able to disable the particular enzyme that pathogenic bacteria and fungi use for oxygen metabolism, thus suffocating them. Other pathogens are destroyed by the electric charge on the silver particles, causing their internal protoplast to collapse, and still others are rendered unable to reproduce. Parasites are also killed while in their egg stage.

How Does Silver Kill Bacteria?
By Theresa Maddox, eHow Contributor

Silver has powerful antimicrobial properties.
Silver (chemical symbol, Ag) has been used for many years as an antibacterial agent. Compounds within silver naturally eliminate bacteria and inhibit their growth. New technology has made it possible to create silver-based compounds with which to coat everyday items with, helping to prevent the spreading of bacteria. In 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of silver in the food industry, which further helps to prevent bacterial epidemics such as infection with Escherichia coli. Have a question?

How it Works
Hospitals use a form of antimicrobial silver-based compound, called Ag ions, made up of 5 percent silver contained within a nonactive crystalline carrier. When this compound is exposed to a small amount of moisture, it releases Ag ions, which eliminate bacterial growth on surfaces by killing existing microbes and preventing new ones from forming. This action can happen on many different types of surfaces like door handles, pens and even athletic shoes. While the compound is tough on germs, it is safe to use and barely toxic. "It's less toxic than table salt and less irritating than talcum powder," says Jeffrey Trologo, chief technology officer at AgION Technologies. "Ultimately we hope this will result in less infections and actually better outcomes for the patients."
History
Silver has been used for centuries as an antimicrobial and antibacterial agent. It has natural germicidal properties that help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks used silver holders for water to keep it fresh and drinkable. The discovery or antibiotics took away some of the limelight from silver, but recent concern over antibiotic-resistant super organisms has brought it back to popularity.

New Technology and Uses
"With increasing uses of silver in many forms including sprays, gels and coatings, the use of silver as an antimicrobial agent continues to grow not only in hospitals and other patient treatment centers, but also in public areas such as restaurants, airports and institutional buildings," says Jeffrey Ellis, senior technology consultant for The Silver Institute. Other uses for silver include coatings for sinks, flooring, bed rails, stethoscopes, pens, catheters and other small portable items. Silver can also be embedded into textile products like hospital gowns and wound coverings to help prevent bacterial infections.

Risks
If ingested in small amounts, silver is harmless to the body; however, like most metals, large doses can be dangerous or fatal if ingested. Silver and other compounds that contain silver can be absorbed through the body's circulatory system, resulting in argyria, or a bluish discoloration of the skin, eyes, and other soft tissues of the body. This condition is harmless, but it is usually permanent.
