A Brief History of Health Support Uses of Silver
For thousands of years silver has been used as a healing and anti-bacterial agent by civilizations throughout the world. Its medical, preservative and restorative powers can be traced as far back as the ancient Greek and Roman Empires. Long before the development of modern pharmaceuticals, silver was employed as a germicide and antibiotic.
Consider these interesting facts:
Not until the late 1800's did western scientists re-discover what had been known for thousands of years - that silver is a powerful germ fighter. Medicinal silver compounds were then developed and silver became commonly used as a medicine. By the early part of the 1900s, the use of silver as an antibacterial substance was becoming widespread. By 1940 there were approximately four dozen different silver compounds on the market being used to treat every known infectious disease. These were available in oral, injectable, and topical forms.
Although there were a few flare-ups of negative publicity regarding medicinal silver in the early 1900s, (due to the overuse of certain types of protein-bound silver compounds causing a discoloration of the skin called argyria and due to a supply of improperly prepared and unstable silver) reputable medical journal reports demonstrated that a properly prepared ionic dispersion of silver was completely suitable with no adverse side effects. T. H. Anderson Wells reported in the Lancet (February 16th, 1918) that a preparation of ionic silver was "used intravenously. . . without any irritation of the kidneys and with no pigmentation of the skin. "
New knowledge of body chemistry gave rise to the enormous array of applications for ionic silver disinfectants and medicines and for on-going research into the capabilities and possibilities for ionic silver solutions. However, Silver’s “new-found” fame as a superior infection-fighting agent was short lived.
How Silver Lost Favor
During the 1930s, synthetically manufactured drugs began to make their appearance and the profits, together with the simplicities of manufacturing this new source of treatment, became a powerful force in the marketplace. There was much excitement over the new 'wonder drugs' and at that time, no antibiotic-resistant strains of disease organisms had surfaced. Silver quickly lost its status to modern antibiotics.
On-going Users of Ionic Silver Applications
The use of some silver preparations in mainstream medicine survived. Among them are the use of dilute silver nitrate in newborn babies' eyes to protect from infection and the use of "Silvadine," a silver based salve, in virtually every burn ward in America to kill infection. A new silver based bandage has recently been approved by the FDA and licensed for sale. Other uses that did not lose favor include:
A Resurgence of Silver in Medicine
The return of silver to conventional medicine began in the 1970s. The late Dr. Carl Moyer, chairman of Washington University's Department of Surgery, received a grant to develop better methods of treatment for burn victims. Dr. Margraf, as the chief biochemist, worked with Dr. Moyer and other surgeons to find an antiseptic strong enough, yet safe to use over large areas of the body. Dr. Margraf investigated 22 antiseptic compounds and found drawbacks in all of them.
Reviewing earlier medical literature, Dr. Margraf found continual references to the use of silver. However, since concentrated silver nitrate is both corrosive and painful, he diluted the silver to a .5 percent solution and found that it killed invasive burn bacteria and permitted wounds to heal. Importantly, resistant strains did not appear. But, silver nitrate was far from ideal. So research continued for more suitable silver preparations.
Silver sulphadiazine (Silvadene, Marion Laboratories) is now used in 70 percent of burn centers in America. Discovered by Dr. Charles Fox of Columbia University, sulphadiazine has also been successful in treating cholera, malaria and syphilis. It also stops the herpes virus, which is responsible for cold sores, shingles and worse.
Results show Ionic Silver Solution to be highly germicidal, yet harmless and non-toxic to humans. More importantly, research shows excellent results with an astonishing array of bacterial, viral and fungal conditions.
Ionic Silver Solution: Expert Opinions
Because of the research showing ionic silver's superior performance in fighting microbes, it has attracted the attention of leading scientists and medical researchers throughout the world. Its benefits are now stirring new interest as 50 prominent doctors are currently researching the efficacy and applications of ionic silver in human health. As a result, many interesting studies have emerged.
According to experts, no microorganism ever tested has been able to stay alive for more than six minutes when exposed directly to ionic silver.
Science Digest cites ionic silver as "...a wonder of modern medicine," and further states "Antibiotics kill perhaps a half dozen different disease organisms, but ionic silver kills about every pathogen it comes into contact with, which are associated with human diseases. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic. Ionic silver, used as an anti-microbial agent, will not create super bugs as antibiotics do."
Alfred Searle, founder of the giant Searle Pharmaceuticals (now Monsanto) stated, "Applying ionic silver solution to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration... it has the advantage being rapidly fatal to pathogens without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable." Further information indicates that Ionic Silver Solution does not cause harmful interactions with other medications or topical treatments.
In laboratory tests with ionic silver solution, bacteria, viruses, and fungal organisms are killed within minutes of contact. Larry C. Ford, M.D. of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, Centre For The Health Sciences reported in November 1, 1988, " I tested them (the silver solutions) using standard anti-microbial tests for disinfectants. The silver solutions were anti-bacterial for concentrations of 105 organisms per ml of Streptococcus Pyogenes, Staphylococcus Aureus, Neisseria Gonorrhea, Gardnerella Vaginalis, Salmonella Typhi and other enteric pathogens, and fungicidal for Candida Albicans, Candida Globata and M. Furfur."
Because of the many organisms that have developed strains resistant to modern antibiotics, Dr. Robert Becker's finding is of particular importance. Becker, of Syracuse University stated, "All of the organisms that we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ions, including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics...In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.”
Everything Old Is New Again
Some researchers, such as Dr. Leonard Keene Hirschberg, A.M., M.D. of Johns Hopkins, believe that the potential of ionic silver solution is just beginning to be discovered. Unlike antibiotics, which are specific only to bacteria, Ionic Silver disables certain enzymes needed by anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and fungus resulting in the destruction of these enzymes. Further indication is that these bacteria cannot develop a resistance to silver, as they do with antibiotics, because silver attacks their food source, rather than them directly
In fact, Ionic Silver Solution is experiencing a well-deserved resurgence in use and research, proving once again the old adage that "There's nothing new under the sun." WORLD H1N1 DEATH TOLL RISING CONSTANTLY

Revealed: How Swine Flu Kills
As the H1N1 swine flu pandemic continues to spread around the world, most cases are still mild. But reports are starting to emerge of people who sicken and die very quickly of what appears to be viral pneumonia. Two independent groups of scientists have now found out why - and it's all down to where the virus binds within the body. A virus that binds deep in the lung can trigger potentially fatal pneumonia if the person infected mounts a strong inflammation in response to it.

Reuters - H1N1 pandemic flu has spread to 160 countries & killed about 800 people, & needs to be watched carefully in case it mutates & becomes more severe in winter, the World Health Organization said on Friday. WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl told a news briefing in Geneva: "The new virus, commonly known as swine flu, has been infecting people worldwide because no one has natural immunity to it. Like all influenza viruses, it may circulate more widely in colder weather and could also mutate in winter, he said."

The FDA said it is still working with drug makers, other countries and federal agencies to develop a swine flu vaccine. It stressed that all Americans should be vaccinated against seasonal flu, even if the vaccine doesn't prevent swine flu. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says between 5 & 20 percent of the U.S. population will develop the flu each year. More than 200,000 people are hospitalized yearly because of the illness and about 36,000 die from complications.

FLU VIRUS PRESENTS DOCTORS WITH THIS NIGHTMARE SCENARIO (By Shawn Donnan in Jakarta)
This scenario sends shivers down epidemiologists' spines: in Indonesia a taxi driver develops a fever and dies, the latest victim of the virulent H5N1 strain of bird flu. His wife grows ill and also dies. So do his children. And within 10 days, so do many of his taxi passengers, victims of a newly mutated virus which has finally found an efficient way to leap between humans. One of those unlucky passengers is a businessman heading to Jakarta's airport to fly home to Munich. On the first leg to Singapore he passes the taxi virus on to an Australian grandmother sitting next to him, as well as an Indian motorcycle magnate across the aisle.
All these people make it home. All die within days. Before they do though, they each pass it on to dozens of people who do the same, beginning a frightening chain of infections. This is our current potential global flu pandemic.
U.S. Health Officials Say Preventing Global Flu Outbreak Is Just About Impossible. Two scientific editions, Science and Nature, reported about the successful achievement of American researchers who reconstructed the Spanish flu virus that caused the massive 1918 flu pandemic. The researchers made a sensational statement that the 1918 virus that killed as many as 50 million people was actually avian flu, H5N1 Flu Virus. The avian flu today is even more dangerous than 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, because the H5N1 subtype flu virus now affects not only the lungs, but also other organs.
Drugs are being stockpiled by the U.S. government. Doctors have reason to believe Tamiflu could be effective at combatting a pandemic strain of bird flu, although it's not clear how long people would have to be treated or what doses they'd need, said Dr. John Treanor of the University of Rochester. More info: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/
Specific drugs and, or vaccines may be ineffective against new mutations of the flu, So, strengthening of the immune system, including taking one tablespoon of SILVACIN daily, may be your most effective preventative measure. Ionic silver solution has been reported to kill every pathogen it comes into contact with, which are associated with human diseases. Ionic silver, used as an anti-microbial agent, does not create super bugs as antibiotics do. Resistant strains fail to develop. " Moreover, ionic silver in the doses provided in SILVACIN is safe and benign to humans. Ionic silver particles are so small that they will pass through your system within 48 hours.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans could die over the next two years if the vaccine and other control measures for the new H1N1 influenza are not effective, and, at the pandemic's peak, as much as 40% of the work force could be affected, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
(AGI) - Washington, 24 July - The A/H1N1 influenza which to date claimed 800 ascertained victims could infect up to 2 billion people during the next months. Such is the "reasonable prediction" made by World Health Organization deputy leader Keiji Fukuda reported by the CBS website. In Fukuda's opinion the virus is still in early stages of development, and during its most acute phase, from autumn onwards, it could infect slightly less than a third of the world's population.
The last time the government ordered mass vaccination in response to a swine flu outbreak, the program had to be stopped short after the shots caused over 500 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a severe paralyzing nerve disease. 30 people died as a direct result of the vaccinations. As with every flu virus, the particular strain of swine flu currently circulating the globe will inevitably mutate and change, and indeed there is evidence to suggest that this is already taking place.
In 1976 when the last swine flu swept the nation. Back then, the government wanted everyone to get vaccinated and for many who took the questionable vaccine at that time developed a rare side effect called Guillain-Barre syndrome, a paralyzing neuromuscular disorder.
