Could Colloidal Silver Have Saved This Woman’s Life from the Deadly Drug-Resistant
Infection that Killed Her?
According to news
reports, a Nevada woman recently died of an infection from a microbe known as multi-drug-resistant Klebsiella
pneumonia. According to news reports, the
microbe is said to be resistant to 26 different kinds of antibiotic
drug-resistant superbugs like Klebsiella pneumonia are picking up, yet
medical authorities still won’t allow doctors to use safe, natural colloidal
silver even in cases in which the patient’s life is at stake and traditional
antibiotic drugs simply aren’t working.
This is an egregiously
deplorable situation, particularly when you consider the fact that medical
authorities now know, from recent clinical studies, that colloidal silver by
itself kills drug-resistant pathogens like Klebsiella
pneumonia, and that when silver is added to antibiotic drugs, it boosts their
effectiveness against the superbugs by up to 1,000x.
Here’s the story you
won’t read anywhere else…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
According to a recent news
report, a woman from Nevada who had recently undergone surgery in India for
fractured leg bones ended up dying of a post-surgical infection that was
resistant to “all 26 available antibiotics.”
Health authorities now say this “raises new concerns about
the rise of dangerous superbugs.” They
also point out that the pathogen she had become infected with -- multi-drug-resistant
Klebsiella pneumoniae -- has been described by the
World Health Organization as "an urgent threat to human health."
The woman’s doctors apparently didn’t think about giving the
woman some colloidal silver along with the antibiotic drugs she was being given
intravenously, in spite of the fact that recent studies have demonstrated
silver’s astonishing ability to boost the effectiveness of antibiotic drugs against
drug-resistant pathogens by up to 1,000x when it’s added to them. For example, see:
· Study: Silver Boosts Effectiveness of
Antibiotics By Up to 1,000x!
· Silver Makes 26 Antibiotic Drugs Work Better
BBC Interview with Professor Jose Ruben Morones-Ramirez
on Adding Silver to Antibiotic Drugs in Order to Boost Their Effectiveness
Against Drug-Resistant Bacteria
I find it interesting that the news reports on the woman’s
death all say the pathogen she was infected with is immune to “26 different
antibiotic drugs.” Yet in the article at
the second link directly above, researchers have found that silver makes 26 different
antibiotic drugs work better against drug-resistant pathogens.
So giving the Nevada woman some colloidal silver along with
her antibiotics might well have saved her life.
After all, the specific antibiotic-resistant pathogen the woman
contracted during surgery -- Klebsiella pneumonia
-- has long been known to be sensitive to silver, even without the presence of antibiotic drugs.
In test tube studies, even small amounts of silver have been demonstrated to kill the
pathogen. For example, in a clinical
study titled “The Antimicrobial Efficacy of Silver on Antibiotic-Resistant
Bacteria Isolated From Burn Wounds,” conducted by researchers at the
Department of Pathology at West Virginia University, and published in the International
Wound Journal in October 2012, drug-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia was one of the 49 different strains
of drug-resistant pathogens that silver was demonstrated to be effective
written about the drug-resistant strain of Klebsiella
pneumonia responsible for killing the Nevada woman. It’s known as a CRE bacteria (i.e., Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae), which essentially means it’s
resistant to even the so-called “antibiotic drugs of last resort.” So if you’re at all concerned about this
issue, you might want to read my previous article, at this link:
Silver Versus Antibiotic-Resistant CRE Bacteria
antimicrobial silver has been clinically demonstrated to kill numerous forms of
drug-resistant pathogens. For example,
here are three relatively recent clinical studies in which silver was
demonstrated to be effective against a wide variety of superbugs:
· Clinical Study #1: Colloidal
Silver Kills up to 99.7% of Six Multidrug-resistant Superbugs! In this fascinating clinical study titled
Bactericidal Effect of
Silver Nanoparticles Against Multidrug-resistant Bacteria, published in the World Journal
of Microbiology and Biotechnology in 2010, it was found that colloidal
silver killed up to 99.7% of drug-resistant bacteria, including some of the
most virulent multidrug-resistant strains. The study authors
stated: “In our study, antimicrobial silver nanoparticles exerted
a bactericidal effect against six drug-resistant bacterial strains… the
same nanosilver concentration inhibited
99.7% of erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pyogenes, 95.7% of
ampicillin-resistant E. coli and 92.8% of multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa.” The
researchers further concluded that silver exhibited bactericidal effect rather
than merely bacteriostatic effect. That’s important news, because it
means the use of antimicrobial silver is so effective against drug-resistant
strains, it outright kills them rather than merely inhibiting their growth!
· Clinical Study #2: Colloidal
Silver Kills Antibiotic-resistant Staph, E. Coli, Pseudomonas and
Salmonella! In this clinical study, titled “Colloidal Silver as a New Antimicrobial Agent,” published in the respected International
Journal of Microbiological Research in 2010, the researchers
demonstrated that colloidal silver effectively decimated antibiotic-resistant
strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas
aeruginosa and Salmonella typhi.
The researchers concluded, “Resistant clinical isolates of
Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and
Salmonella typhi were used as the test
organisms. This study demonstrated powerful antimicrobial activity
of colloidal silver against all multidrug-resistant clinical pathogens tested.”
· Clinical Study #3: Colloidal
Silver Kills 49 Different Strains of Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs, Including Klebsiella pneumonia! In this clinical study titled “The Antimicrobial Efficacy of Silver on
Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Isolated From Burn Wounds,” conducted by researchers at the
Department of Pathology at West Virginia University, and published in the International
Wound Journal in October 2012, a total of 49 different
antibiotic-resistant bacteria were isolated from burn wounds and tested against
silver. These deadly, drug-resistant pathogens included
Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus
aureus, multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
multidrug-resistant Vibrio sp,
drug-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia,
drug-resistant Escherichia coli, multidrug-resistant Acinetobacterbaumannii and 42 others. After
exposing these drug-resistant pathogens to antimicrobial silver the researchers
concluded, “…all forty-nine antibiotic-resistant bacteria showed
susceptibility to the antimicrobial activity of silver…”
As you can see,
there’s hardly a superbug in existence that hasn’t been demonstrated by clinical
research to be sensitive to antimicrobial silver. And that even includes
the deadly MRSA pathogen, which infects some 94 million people every year and
kills some 18 million of them! (See four
different clinical studies demonstrating silver to kill the deadly MRSA
pathogen, here: Does
Colloidal Silver Really Kill MRSA?)
Why Won’t Doctors Use Colloidal Silver?
In the recent news article about the
woman who died of the drug-resistant superbug Klebsiella pneumonia, researchers complained that doctors might
have been able to save the woman’s life if they could have given her antibiotic
drugs that are approved for use in Europe, but are not approved for use here in
the United States where the woman was treated after having surgery in India.
For example, Laura Piddock, a professor of
microbiology at the University of Birmingham, stated that the woman’s death
demonstrates the fact that doctors "need the flexibility to use
antibiotics licensed for use in other countries and shown to be active in the
laboratory against the patient's infecting bacterium."
That’s probably a good point. But perhaps an even better point is that in cases in which the antibiotic drugs simply
aren’t working against a drug-resistant pathogen, why can’t doctor’s give the
patient colloidal silver, either by itself, or alongside existing antibiotic
In my view, the fact
that medical science knows silver is
effective against drug-resistant bacteria, but won’t use it, makes it
imperative for people with foresight and wisdom to take matters into their own
hands, and make sure they have plenty of safe, natural colloidal silver on hand
at all times.
And the simplest way
to do that is to make your own colloidal silver, with a Micro-Particle
Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.
Here’s what you need to know…
How to Make Your Own
Thankfully, today, high-quality
colloidal silver – the world’s safest and most powerful natural healing and

ability to make your own high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for only pennies
per quart is about as close as you’ll ever get to having
"free" colloidal silver for the rest of your life, any time you or a
family member, friend or loved one needs it.
And because the
silver particles produced by the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from
The Silver Edge are as small as .8 nm – a fraction of a single nanometer – their effectiveness against colonies of
pathogenic microbes is astonishing.
Because of their
extremely small size, these tiny, submicroscopic silver particles are up
to 1,000 times more bioavailable than conventional silver
particles. This means the human body is able to absorb 99-100% of
the silver, send it throughout the body to kill pathogens, and then excrete it
with ease, afterwards.
Plus, it’s now known
that these tiny silver micro-particles are able to kill off entire colonies of
pathogens with far greater effectiveness than conventional colloidal silver
particles, because of the “zombie effect” described in this recent article about brand new research out of
Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Perhaps that’s why so
