Flesh eating bacteria – is there a ‘silver bullet’ ?

Have you thought about how  you will take care of yourself or your family if you can’t get to a doctor ?? Even with doctors available why do people lose limbs and lives because of the “flesh eating bacteria” There are answers and solutions that can prove to be beneficial in killing these types of super bugs. One indispensable product we use is called colloidal silver.


Colloidal silver appears to be a powerful, natural antibiotic and preventative against infections. Acting as a catalyst, it reportedly disables the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. They are suffocated without corresponding harm occurring to human enzymes or parts of the human body chemistry, unlike antibiotics from pharmaceutical companies that destroy the good enzymes. The result is the destruction of disease-causing organisms in the body and in the food. The late Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University’s Department of Surgery in the 1970s stated: “Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have.” Not much has changed since then.

Colloidal silver snuggles up to bacterium or single cell pathogen and disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme (its chemical lung) and within 6 minutes the pathogen suffocates. 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 prevention is key . We take a spoonful or two three times a week and we also add in extra good bacteria, like those found in yogurt, because silver can kill off the good bacteria as well as the bad !


Colloidal Silver has been successfully tested at the UCLA Medical Labs where it killed every virus on which it was tested and has been shown 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. 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,in a dilution of as little as five parts per million, plus there are no side effects whatsoever from high concentrations. – (“Use of Colloids in Health and Disease,” quoted in “Report: Colloidal Silver,” Health Consciousness, Vol.15,14)


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.


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. World Health Organizations’ Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality 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.

I bought my own silver generator from Economical CS, over a year ago and now I am the official family silver maker !! My solution usually runs around 12-15 ppm (there’s a tester you can use to verify the count). I fill a quart jar with distilled water and a pinch of sea salt, put the the generator with the silver rods into the jar and set the timer for 50 mins. I’ve made enough that I know I will get 12-15 ppm .  And this is sufficient for our needs.

We all use it as the first line of defense against any sickness that starts, and most of the time that’s the end of it. We take a small amount several times per week, gargle with it, use it as a nasal spray, travel with it, etc etc. It is in our grab and go kits and we store bottles for the long haul. I make up little squirt bottles from nasal spray and give them to the gran kids to keep in their pockets while their out playing and fishing. Any little scrap or cut they spray it first thing. One can but wonder if the outcome for that poor girl here in Georgia, who lost several limbs from flesh eating bacteria that was in the pond she fell into, would have been different if someone had a bottle of silver to pour into her wound when it happened.

One important note – if your making your own you MUST USE DISTILLED WATER. So store extra of it. Distilled water is “empty water”, it leaves lots of room for the silver!! Do your own research and know that having a supply of this amazing solution should be with you at all times. Do remember though that none of this information is being given as any medical advice, just personal observations.

  1. I have had my silver generator for about a year now. It was recommended by a friend in N.Fla. that has had many years of making and using it. Mine will operate on AC or DC so the solar system will keep it going. I have made quart ball jars of 12-15 ppm for internal use and a much stronger solution for topical use. Be sure and use only distilled water and store in a dark place as exposure will darken it, just like an old photo. I store many antibiotics in my med. fridge, but Colloidal silver and Tea Tree oil are my most useful alternative meds and almost always work better than conventional treatments. Regards, D.

  2. Great Article Rourke. I have a been using a CS-generator for 7 years. I use it in my Big Berkey reservoir and to my Rabbits water bowls. I also have back up Silver rods. To this I have stocked “Thieves Essential oil and make Clove Oil. Some personal data: when my brother turned septic, it was able to bring fever down with in 12 hrs, when my daughter had pneumonia, it brought her out of in 3 less then three days.

  3. We started using ASAP Silver Solution a few years ago. When we were out and needed some quickly to handle an infection in one of our dogs we purchased a 16 oz bottle of locally produced colloidal silver from a local health food store. I started making it soon after. Unfortunately the instructions I followed which use the power supply from a laser printer have since disappeared from the web. Be advised, according to the materials I’ve read, true colloidal silver is best produced at a constant 30 volts and the inexpensive battery operated generators only start out at 27 volts with fully charged batteries and begin producing ionic silver as the batteries discharge and the voltage drops. I also use Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins instead of wire. The Maple Leaf is the only minted coin with a purity of .9999 and 2 coins will last most people a lifetime. I can produce nearly a quart of silver in just under 3 hours and have scrounged the component parts to build 2 more units. I do this strictly for entertainment purposes. I am not a doctor and am in no way qualified to diagnose,prevent or treat any kind of illness.

  4. very good info on silver. i’ve been trying to find info on purifying water with silver coins or other solid pieces of silver, but have found almost nothing. i know the info is out there, because it’s been done for centuries, but i guess if we all knew how, the people who make and sell water filters would lose a lot of money. any suggestions as to where to look?
