Beloved country western singer Kris Kristofferson battled for many years with painful symptoms of fibromyalgia as well as the growing forgetfulness of Alzheimer’s disease which left him completely debilitated.
Then, after years of what his wife referred to as a “slow slipping away,” a natural health doctor noticed an unusual symptom, and had Kristofferson tested (and afterwards treated) for a Lyme disease infection, resulting in a dramatic turnaround in his health and resumption of his singing career at age 80.
Kristofferson’s story is important, because, according to cutting edge researchers, hidden, underlying infections are known to cause symptoms that mimic or even cause a vast cross-section of chronic degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, fibromyalga, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, Lupus and some 350 other diseases.
As you’ll discover below, these doctors and researchers are now screaming from the rooftops that many diseases of supposed “unknown etiology” (i.e., unknown cause) may well be triggered by hidden, underlying “slow motion” infections that wreak havoc on the body and fool doctors into misdiagnosing the condition.
Here’s the straight scoop you won’t read anywhere else...
Here’s a quick excerpt from Dr. Farber’s book, The Micro-Silver Bullet: A Scientifically Documented Answer to the Three Largest Epidemics in the World: Lyme Disease, Aids Virus, Yeast Infection, and the Common Cold, explaining how he “cured” his own case of Lyme disease. In his own words:
“In July of 1992 I was bitten by the Deer Tick (Ixodes Scapularis) which according to Dr. Thomas Craig, D.V.M. of the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Parasitology carries the spirochete which is the causative agent of Lyme disease.
After my diagnosis was confirmed a medical doctor, who is a neurologist, put me first on Penicillin orally for two weeks, and then intravenously for four weeks. The results to my symptomatology were minimal and I experienced many side effects including Candida Yeast Infection because of the penicillin's destructive effect on the friendly acidophilus bacteria in my stomach and colon.
Since this treatment did not work, the neurologist prescribed a cephalosporin called Rocephan. Unfortunately, this treatment accomplished no more than the penicillin, had many unpleasant side effects, and worsened my candida yeast infection.
Not knowing what to do, or where to go next I was led to a Dr. Joseph Cardot from Colorado. Dr. Cardot told me that Mild Silver Protein [i.e., an older form of colloidal silver – ED] was helpful against spirochetes and suggested a regiment to follow.
I began with two tablespoons a day for the first month holding it under the tongue sublingually for a minute, swishing it around the mouth for ten seconds, and then gargling and swallowing. I did the same thing for the second and third month,
but only one tablespoon per day.
By the end of the first two weeks my 35 different symptoms, including extreme pain, paralysis, and numbness were about 25% relieved with no side effects.
By the end of the first month I was over 50% well. By the end of the second month I was 75% well. After 3 months of treatment I was 100% well. I have been 100% well for over 2 years.
Was I cured from Lyme disease and Candida yeast infection?
In my opinion and the opinion of Dr. William Burgdorfer, Scientist Emeritus who discovered the spirochete as the causative agent of Lyme disease, and Dr. John Parks Trowbridge, M.D. an author and expert in the field of candida yeast infection, I appeared to be CURED…
This ‘antibiotic’ is attenuated silver that has been broken down, electrically charged and suspended in colloidal solution, having been reduced to microscopic silver particles smaller than .001 microns in diameter (smaller than a virus or bacteria).
I have done considerable additional research on this potent antibiotic, conferring frequently with knowledgeable people in the field, including two years of interaction with Dr. Willy Burgdorfer, the world-renowned scientist who discovered and pinpointed the spirochete as the causative agent of Lyme disease.”
Clearly, Dr. Farber’s personal account of his healing from Lyme disease using colloidal silver is a dramatic one, and offers profound hope to millions who now suffer from this dread disease.
Dr. Farber concludes, “Lyme disease is treatable and can be conquered through the use of the natural antibiotic that I have discovered and call the ‘micro-silver bullet’ [i.e., very small particle-sized colloidal silver -- ED] used in tandem with holistic supportive methods.”
As one Lyme patient recently stated online:
“I have been put on doxycycline and minocycline and amoxycillin all to no avail for my Lyme…none of them did the trick in the last 4 years…
But now after only getting sicker and sicker for 4 years and 30 doctors later, I am getting treatment in AZ. And they are giving me colloidal silver every day. I had never even heard of it. What is stranger is that it is not harmful.
It targets the Lyme inside the cells and cuts off its oxygen supply therefore killing it. I bought some online and it does not have any taste to it at all.
Why is there not more information about this great product? Is it because the pharmaceutical companies cannot patent it and make a killing off of it? Does greed really come before lives?
So what is the deal with this colloidal silver? It has been around for 2,000 years and seemed to have worked pretty darn well for everyone before other antibiotic drugs were invented.”
And therein lays the crux of the issue. Much of the medical community today doesn’t even believe in the existence of diseases like Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome and others that present with a conflicting constellation of often debilitating symptoms.
So they misdiagnose the symptoms, as they did in Kris Kristofferson’s case. Or they claim you have a chronic degenerative condition or auto-immune disease that has no known cause. They generally can’t bring themselves to admit that your symptoms might be being caused by an underlying infection that’s slowly wreaking havoc on the body from the inside out.
And of course, they also don’t believe in natural healing at all. So the victim becomes victimized even more so by the medical community itself, which insists on using medical treatments even when they’re clearly not working.

help heal their bodies from the ravages of Lyme Disease, and to read numerous

More Diseases Linked to
“Hidden, Slow-Motion Infections”
Most doctors simply don’t realize the fact that low-level, slow-motion infections in the human body are the hidden triggers behind many of the diseases they claim have “no underlying etiology,” meaning no known cause.
In fact, most doctor’s pooh-pooh and even ridicule the idea that many of today’s most prevalent chronic degenerative diseases (and some “auto-immuine” diseases as well) – including cancer, heart disease, dementia, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus and more -- can be caused or triggered by hidden infections.
Thankfully, highly respected researchers such as Professor Paul Ewald, Ph.D., a professor of biology at The University of Kentucky, and author of the controversial book Plague Time: How Stealth Infections Cause Cancers, Heart Disease and Many Other Ailments, have helped bring the concept of a microbial cause for many chronic degenerative diseases out of the darkness of medical disdain and into the spotlight.
Ewald’s impeccable scholarly credentials (he was the first recipient of the George E. Burch Fellowship in Theoretic Medicine and Affiliated Sciences), coupled with his persuasive documentation, has helped open the eyes of many other medical researchers who are now following his lead and blazing new trails in medical research.
Thanks to Ewald’s work, many cutting edge doctors now acknowledge hidden infections to be the cause or underlying triggers of a number of diseases previously thought to have no known cause. In fact, according to Ewald, infectious microbes are to blame for cancer, heart disease and most other chronic ailments.
Lupus Caused by Infectious Microbes in the Gut?
The short article excerpt below, which is based on research from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, says infectious microbes in the gut could be a trigger for the onset of Lupus, also known as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
“Adding to the growing body of scientific evidence pointing to bacteria
as a causative agent of rheumatic diseases, a ground-breaking study, led by
researchers at Temple University School of Medicine (TUSM), in Philadelphia,
was published in the journal, Immunity, on June 16th, 2015.
“Very little was known about how biofilms interact with the immune system because most of the research has been looking at how biofilms protect bacteria, how they make bacteria resistant to antimicrobials such as antibiotics, but almost nothing was known about what biofilms do to the immune response,” she said.
Could this be why so many victims of Lupus feel better when they start taking colloidal silver each day? Could the colloidal silver be helping control the hidden gut infection that’s triggering the Lupus symptoms?
I find it absolutely fascinating that the researchers above documented it was bacterial biofilms in the gut that seemed to be the Lupus trigger. Why is this fascinating? Because other recent research has demonstrated that silver in its infection-fighting ionic form busts through bacterial biofilms! See the article below for more information:
Lupus is considered to be an auto-immune disease. That means doctors believe that the immune system is attacking its own tissues.
There are many, many other so-called “auto-immune” diseases. And there are just as many theories as to why the human body would begin attacking itself.
One theory that’s gaining ground among cutting edge researchers is that infectious microbes in the body absorb human DNA material from the body in an attempt to hide themselves from the immune system. But the immune system spots it, and starts attacking anything with that particular DNA component in it, including the person’s own body tissues.
Of course, if you can kill the pathogens, the hyper-exaggerated immune response is often “cooled,” meaning the immune system gradually stops attacking the body’s own tissues and organs.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Caused by Pathogens?
Cutting edge doctors also believe this is why many victims of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) – another so-called “auto-immune” disease -- experience profound remissions of their symptoms when they start long-term antibiotic therapy with antibiotic drugs like doxycycline or minocycline.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O., one of the internet’s top proponents of integrative medicine, says he’s witnessed dozens of remissions from serious cases of Rheumatoid Arthritis when patients were put on antibiotic therapy.
If antibiotic drugs work for Rheumatoid Arthritis, would colloidal silver work it, as well?
Some years back, a lady with Rheumatoid Arthritis told me she was in such agony her entire life centered around living in her over-stuffed chair in her front room, getting up from it only to go to the bathroom or kitchen and back. She’d been in this debilitated condition for nearly 10 years.
Then, she started using colloidal silver -- just an ounce or two a day of 10 ppm strength -- and said that within a month she was gardening outside, driving her car again, and much more, all of which would have been impossible for her previously due to the crippling effects of the RA.
Could this be why Dr. Garth Nicholson, M.D. of the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Newport Beach, California, who uses a diagnostic technique called DNA-PCR testing, has repeatedly demonstrated that Rheumatoid Arthritis victims often have hidden infections from tiny “stealth pathogens” called mycoplasmas?
You can learn more about hidden mycoplasmas infections and the array of chronic degenerative diseases and auto-immune diseases they can cause (including Rheumatoid Arthritis), plus how colloidal silver has been used by many people to beat these infections, in the article at this link:
As an aside, I received this very interesting testimonial from a victim of Rheumatoid Arthritis after he discovered what he calls the “colloidal silver phenomenon.” He wrote:
"Hi Steve, I have suffered with Rheumatoid Arthritis for approximately 7 years now.
My symptoms were swollen inflamed joints, getting tired quickly, nodules forming in and around my joints. My wrists were the worst always. They were hot to the touch and I couldn't do a lot of things that I used to be able to do-without having to adapt or change the method somehow so that I could. They were basically numbed with pain if I tried to do some repetitive work and I just had to stop for a while until the throbbing went away.
The first thing I noticed after a week of taking it was that my asthma symptoms (I got the asthma 2 yrs ago following a flu shot-which I will never take again!) were getting better. The phlegm associated with it was actually loosening up and moving.
Then on the second week I started realizing that my badly swollen wrists were getting better. By better I mean the swelling had decreased, I still felt like I had very little mobility but the swelling and heat were better.
By the third week I noticed that my tendons, ligaments and veins were starting to become more apparent (rather than hiding in a mass of inflammation).
I am now on my fifth week and I can actually press my fingertips into my wrists (synovial area) without much pain. I can also reach out further and lift heavier objects. I can also twist my wrist a lot more. The mobility is far from what it used to be but much better (I probably have some damage in there that restricts full movement)
The asthma is also diminishing. Other benefits I have noticed since taking the colloidal silver are: Good bowel movements, much better sleeping pattern, very clear mind and memory, way more energy and stamina.
I drink around 150 mls of Cranberry Juice just after taking the colloidal silver. I also take 6 x 1000mg fish oil capsules per day. And I take Glucosamine 1500mg tablets (one per day). I also take these natural supplements called Osteo-Trace and they provide a host of the B-vitamins and Boron and other trace elements. My Mum sends me these from the UK (bless her heart).
I am sadly still on the DMARD's (Sulfasalzine) which are immuno-supressant drugs for the RA. But in the light of the recent improvements with colloidal silver, I am hopeful that someday I can come off them and let my immune system do the rest. I am studying more and more into that.
Please feel free to post my story anywhere you might think it can help another RA sufferer. And thanks for the advice you share - it is priceless.
4 days ago I was stood by my mirror crying with happiness and joy at my wrists that are getting better.
Keep up the good work my friend. I will keep you posted about how things turn out in the future as well. Keep in touch.
Now that’s quite an account, you’ve got to admit. And to me, anyway, it constitutes a glaring indication that researchers need to be looking harder at an infectious basis behind Rheumatoid Arthritis, and quit merely writing it off as an “auto-immune” disease.
Hidden Infections Causing Many More Diseases
Hidden, slow-motion infections in the human body are being linked to more diseases than we might like to think, including many diseases doctors have claimed for years they don’t know the cause of.
· Cancer – Previously thought to be strictly genetic, or caused by reactions to toxins, it’s now known that some 13 different pathogens – including bacteria, viruses and fungi – can cause cancer in the human body. And researchers are identifying more cancer-causing pathogens all of the time. Could this be why so many cancer patients are responding positively to colloidal silver usage? (See Colloidal Silver and Cancer, here.)
· Heart Disease/Stroke – During a five-year study published in the medical journal Circulation, it was demonstrated that people with chronic bacterial infections were nearly three times more likely to develop new plaques in carotid arteries, the large arteries of the neck that deliver blood to the brain. Dr. Maretin Lerner, M.D., has also presented data to the American Society of Microbiology demonstrating that the Epstein-Barr virus and cytomegalovirus – pathogens that nearly all humans have living in their bodies -- can weaken heart function by “scrambling the normally well-ordered muscle fibers...”, resulting in chronic heart disease.
· Alzheimer’s Disease – In 2002 a new study conducted by researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine demonstrated that proteins “remarkably similar to those found in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients” were produced by a common strain of the E. coli bacteria. The study authors wrote that the discovery “...raises the intriguing possibility that bacterial amyloids could play a role in certain human neurodegenerative and amyloid-related diseases ...". In another study, this one published in the journal Neurology, it was demonstrated that a whopping 88% of Alzheimer’s victims studied had H. pylori infections, “suggesting a relationship between this common stomach infection and the development of Alzheimer’s disease.”
Similar studies have found links to bacterial, viral and fungal infections in victims of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Asthma, Diabetes, Leukemia, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, obesity, fatigue, various forms of mental illness, paralysis, inflammatory bowel disease and many, many other conditions.
This research has led researchers published in the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine to ask “Is it Really Possible All of These Degenerative Diseases are Caused, Triggered or Exacerbated by Infectious Microorganisms?”
And could this be why the renowned Amherst College biologist, Professor Paul Ewald, author of the best-selling book, Plague Time, has simply stated, “It’s the germs, stupid”?

Where to Obtain High-Quality Colloidal Silver
If you’re interested in trying colloidal silver as a nutritional adjunct for an auto-immune or chronic degenerative disease, it’s important to know that it can be found in almost every health food store in America. It's also available online at Amazon.com or at SwansonVitamins.com, or many other websites.
Some people prefer the Sovereign Silver brand. And others prefer the ASAP Colloidal Silver brand. They're both widely considered to be excellent choices.
If you try colloidal silver and find that it helps you overcome your disease symptoms, you’ll then likely want to look into purchasing a home colloidal silver generator so you can make your own colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart, rather than paying $20 or $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle at health food stores.
After all, you can also safely use colloidal silver internally to stop colds and flu in their tracks… alleviate intestinal infections…stop urinary tract infections…cure upper respiratory infections…wipe out infection-based prostate problems…and much, much more! (To learn more about the documented infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver, see A Colloidal Silver Primer.)
Most people who try colloidal silver find that it quickly becomes their #1 “go to” nutritional supplement for helping the body fight active infections, nutritionally.
Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another insightful article on colloidal silver….
Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
