Could a Simple Answer to Ebola Have Been Here All Along?

Ebola shocker: FDA shunning possible cure

The news gets harder to watch each day.

People in makeshift isolation wards waiting to die. A lucky few do survive, and doctors say they have no idea why.

The toll of the Ebola tragedy seems to have no end in sight.

But what if…what if there’s already something out there that will help. Maybe even save untold numbers of lives.

One thing is perfectly clear. The FDA, WHO and the CDC will hear nothing of it. They prefer to tinker with experimental drugs from Big Pharma (even statins have been suggested as a possible “cure”!).

So why are these “health” agencies refusing to even consider something that has been used for eons for germ control and prevention? Something that can zap fungus, viruses and bacteria, can prevent the flu and cure malaria?

Something that people have been taking, safely, for a very long time?

Even with all the hype, the experimental new drug ZMapp, which was given to Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, is NOT the answer.

Because despite their miraculous recoveries, and Dr. Brantly’s emotional walk out of Emery Hospital, that drug very likely DIDN’T cure him or Writebol.


“We’re all very happy Brantly and Writebol have gotten better, but I think it would be a misperception to say that the drug is the thing that made them well.”

That telling statement comes from none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is the director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

Dr. Fauci added that “we don’t have any idea whether this helped them get better, had no impact or even, unlikely, made their recovery delayed.”

Now NIAID claims to be working feverishly with Big Pharma to find an Ebola treatment. And with a yearly budget of over $4.5 billion, this is no “mom and pop” organization we’re talking about.

And still everything it’s working on so far is accompanied by buzzwords like “promising,” or “potentially useful.”

But there is something they aren’t even considering that likely goes way beyond “promising.”

It’s colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is a treatment that consists of submicroscopic silver particles that are dispersed in water and taken orally to treat infections.

And to hear the FDA and WHO talk about it, you would think it’s some kind of newfangled crazy witchdoctor scheme.

But nothing could be further from the truth.

It’s been used for hundreds of years. And it may fight Ebola the same way it’s been shown to stop a similar kind of virus in its tracks.

And even those super bugs, the drug resistant kind, don’t seem to stand a chance against colloidal silver. It’s like David throwing a silver stone against a microbe Goliath.

Colloidal silver was used intravenously by doctors until around 1940, and it saved many people from life-threatening infections. Then the Big Pharma era began, and penicillin and other drugs took over.

But there’s no doubt that colloidal silver works at killing microbes. And it’s still very much in use — only not in Africa, where it could quite possibly be saving lives.

Over half of the EPA-registered “biocidal” materials — substances that can kill off harmful microbes — contain these super-tiny silver partials. It’s also used on burn victims topically to fight infection.

    This article is wonderful! I would like to add to it to help educate everyone out there about what colloidal silver is and how it should look like so you don’t end up buying the wrong kind.
    Big Pharma of course does not like all those manufacturers of colloidal silver but the fact that the OTC colloidal silver is not in the market anymore is partially Big Pharma’s fault and partially all the manufacturers of colloidal silver as a mineral supplement.
    Let me explain here, colloidal silver is a metal colloid. This metal colloid has certain characteristics:
    1. Size of the nanoparticles – properly manufactured colloidal silver should have nanoparticles which measure between 5 nm -100 nm.
    2. Color – The color should be light yellow at a silver concentration of 15 ppm when the nanoparticles are at the lower side of the 5 nm-100 nm spectrum and the color changes to red when the nanoparticles either increase in size or in concentration. A 100 nm colloidal silver should look cloudy with some hint of red. A 20 nm colloidal silver should look cherry red at concentrations above 600 ppm.
    3. Colloidal silver does not have the smallest nanoparticles of silver possible.
    4. Home made colloidal silvers are partially colloidal because most of their nanoparticles of silver are either too small or too large. How can you tell? if the color and the ppm concentration does not fit the description I gave then they are not colloidal. Sorry but you are not making it colloidal, you are making nanosilver which has negative side effects. I explain more on point 5.
    5. All colloidal silver is nano in size. the nano scale goes from 1 nm-1000 nm. So colloidal silver fits inside of it, but not all nanosilver products fit inside the colloidal scale of 5 nm-100 nm.
    6. Smaller than 5 nm of nanosilver will cause problems in the long run, its called silver toxicity. Larger than 100 nm can cause Argyria, a permanent discoloration of the skin. Why are most people not having problems? because they are not using too much, but because there is a lack of scientific research on what happens after 10 or 20 years it is better to be safe than sorry.
    7. Colloidal silver does not kill 650 different organisms, that attribute belongs to silver. NO, it is not the same, when we deal with nanomaterials, size matters and size affects the way the material behaves, so even if silver kills 650 different organisms, colloidal silver does not because its behavior is different than that of the bulk silver and it does not affect organisms the same way or at all for that matter.
    8. Most manufacturers that sell their colloidal silver at natural stores and the internet Do Not Manufacture Colloidal Silver, they make nanosilver.
    9. Colloidal silver is made of nanosized particles of silver which remain suspended because they all have the same charge and repel each other and that force is greater than gravity’s pull so they stay suspended. This also means that properly manufactured colloidal silver is in fact an ionic solution (see 10).
    10. A silver ion is a cation. If colloidal silver has charged nanoparticles of silver then by definition it is ionic. So when marketers say their colloidal silver is ionic and not colloidal or particulate, they don’t know what they are saying and they are lying to you.

    If the natural mineral supplement colloidal silver companies were to manufacture it the way its supposed to be, big Pharma would not be able to use it in all its other products that are allowed. Go on an read on Silver Living Tech’s page under research and you will find research papers about different uses of colloidal silver, pay attention to the size of the nanoparticles used in the studies, they are colloidal in size, meaning what I said earlier, between 5 nm-10 nm in size. Look up Nanocomposix colloidal silver and you will see that in their page the talk about the same thing and their nanoparticles of silver are the same size with the exception of the 200 nm ones they have for sale too.

    So, by now you are wondering what companies really make colloidal silver. Well, I know of 3, Nanocomposix (already mentioned), Sigma Aldrich and Silver Living Tech (already mentioned). There might be more but I am aware of only those. These companies all make laboratory grade colloidal silver but only the last one sells it as a mineral supplement besides selling it to laboratories.

    We all want to blame Big Pharma for why colloidal silver lost its OTC status but it was partly Big Pharma’s fault and partly the manufacturers of colloidal silver playing scientist trying to make something without following any guidelines.

    I am sure some of those manufacturers made it because they wanted to help give people a good product, but they did not know what they were making, and others probably just wanted to get rich.
