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

by Brenda Nicholson


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. Wow that is amazing. I had heard of this stuff before but never really looked into it. Now you have me searching Amazon and Googling this stuff. Thanks for an informative and interesting article.

  2. First off, I’d like to say that I really enjoy reading the articles here at Modern Survival Online. I check the website regularly, but I’ve never posted before because I haven’t felt like I’ve had anything to contribute until now …

    With all due respect, I strongly suggest that anyone who regularly uses or is thinking about regularly using colloidal silver researches the condition called argyria … A word meant to describe area’s of one’s skin and other body tissues turning gray or blue-gray, caused by exposure to silver compounds, (including colloidal silver) … While not life-threatening, (and probably only cosmetically undesireable), it is a definite risk to anyone who uses colloidal silver with some frequency, especially if they ingest or inhale it. I comment here mostly because I heard about argyria when I was a kid and that it was much more common before antibiotics were widely available, when silver compounds were used much more frequently because of their antibiotic properties.

    I apologize in advance for any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. The screen here on my phone is small and I can’t get back to my computer, where I have spell check, until much later today. However, I wanted to get this information out there as soon as possible … While I’m going mostly off of memory for what I’ve written here, I’ve included an article from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, which speaks to some of what I’ve said:

  3. Back in old Europe, during the middle ages, the rich had silver spoons to suck on to fight disease. That’s where the saying, “born with a silver spoon in their mouths” came from. Also, when pioneers traveled west, they would drop a silver coin in the water barrel to keep the water from going bad.

  4. With nearly 15 years of educating folks to colloidal silver I must take umbrage; EXCERPT: “…fill a quart jar with distilled water and a pinch of sea salt”. In reality, the addition of salt as electrolyte is arkane.

    This is what Mark Metcalf taught way over a decade ago and it is precisely the thing that aided his contraction of Argyria, the discoloration of large gray colloids accumulating rather than small yellow colloids flushing from the system. He’s pink again, proving it is not permanent.

    His protocol is a secret you must pay for but it involves several chelating agents: perhaps selenium, cilantro, EDTA, zeolite and/or other fairly common nutrients.

    Silver chloride is the result of salt addition and while this may have some use it is not nearly as desirable as TRUE silver colloids.

    The old text books will tell you all colloids have color. It is a function of being large enough to show light playing off the surface, reflection, if you will.

    Clear is how it starts and then it can or will aggregate all the small particles into some semblance of yellow particles. The aggregation can be aided but not with salt please and preferably after manufacture not before.

    No electrolyte addition is needed as you can keep going and some particles will find the carbon dioxide at the water’s surface and begin color change.

    Vitamin C, in minute amounts can aid this change and I teach its use after successful experimentation, then finding a reference in a 50 year old text and finally the approval of Frank Key of Colloidal Science Laboratory.

    Please, please stay away from the use of all salts. They were only used early on in the industry’s history to create conductivity in electrically non-conductive distilled water. The accepted norm quickly moved on to heating the distilled water to create conductivity.

    Again, salt addition is a no-no. It’s use typically rather quickly created a cloudy sol that looked like you’d added a spoon of milk to your water: Grey colloids slipping in from too fast production.

    Slow and easy, depending on all the variables: water quality, quantity and temperature, chosen if any electrolyte addition, time under power and amount of DC electricity used, even things such ad phases of the moon and humidity affect the art of colloidal silver manufacture.

    Help make colloidal silver a household word…

    The internal ingestion of properly prepared colloidal silver is a personally empowering act of individual medical responsibility.

  5. I am surprised with the increase in use of silver colloids for wounds and infections. All of a sudden there is shift in doctors preference from antibiotics and antimicrobial creams towards silver colloids. One advantage could be no chances of development of resistance.

  6. DeeMan,

    Argyria is only caused when the particles of Silver are way too large, and can’t move freely among the flowing blood in arteries and veins. If you get the proper PPM this is impossible to happen. PLEASE understand exactly what is happening here before you go spewing lies and false information!!!!!

    You do realize why any agency would categorize this wonderful mineral as a hazardous substance, right? My logic says it’s probably receiving all of it’s funding from big pharma aka the makes of antibiotics…. If you don’t have the logic paths in your head to connect the dots… maybe you should re-evaluate some things…

    Argyria is also caused by using silver dollars and NOT 99.999% pure silver rods. You do realize that silver dollars are NOT 99.999% pure silver and an alloy of other minerals/metal’s right????
