Increase: Colloidal Silver to the Rescue!
Tuberculosis (TB) is a
serious, infectious airborne bacterial disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is largely
spread by coughing.
Health authorities say
up to one-third of the world’s population are infected with TB at any point in
time with the vast majority of cases being spread throughout Africa and
TB was once the
leading cause of death in the United States. Now, due to an unexpected increase
in cases in the U.S., health authorities claim TB might be making a resurgence here.
Thankfully, clinical studies have shown antimicrobial silver to be highly
effective against the TB pathogen.
Here’s what you need to know…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
in the Washington Post dated March
24, 2016 says tuberculosis (TB) cases have increased in the U.S. for the first
time in 23 years.
With a total of 9,563 cases being reported in the U.S. in
2015, which is 157 cases over those reported the previous year, the Post claims medical experts aren’t sure
yet whether or not this increase could signal “a resurgence of one of the
world’s deadliest diseases.”
The largest increases in cases of TB appear to be in
California, Texas, Florida and New York – population centers constituting a
whopping one-third of the U.S. population.
According to the Washington Post article:
“The disease is treatable with antibiotics, but the course can be long
forms of the bacterium that causes TB are becoming impervious to the drugs
designed to kill them, leading to the development of multidrug-resistant
strains of infection.
… In a related report,
the CDC also called for increased awareness of the potential for active TB
among foreign-born temporary workers.”
Will Colloidal Silver
Does colloidal silver work against TB?
Some experts say it will.
Indeed, in one clinical
study researchers concluded that silver nanoparticles, “showed excellent antibacterial activities
against M. tuberculosis around 10 ppm.”
The well-known and
highly respected Dr. Gordon Pedersen wrote, in his 2014 book “A New Fighting
“Tuberculosis is a common and often deadly infectious disease
caused by mycobacteria…silver has destroyed tuberculosis in laboratory
By drinking two teaspoons twice daily and inhaling from a
nebulizer 30 minutes each day, you may affect the tuberculosis in both the
lungs and the bloodstream.
Tuberculosis is not easy to beat. This dosage may need to be followed for
weeks or months. You should see benefits after the first dose and each
According to a clinical study published in the Journal of Nanobiotechnology
in May 2012, both gold and silver nanoparticles were demonstrated to be
effective against the pathogen Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) which is used in clinical studies
as a surrogate for the tuberculosis bacteria.
The researchers wrote:
“Diseases such as tuberculosis (TB) have
always had a large impact on human health. Bacillus Calmette-Guérin
(BCG) is used as a surrogate for TB during the development of anti-TB drugs.
…The purpose of this study was to examine
the potential of nanoparticles as anti-TB compounds by studying the interacting
mechanisms between nanoparticles and bacteria.
… We investigated effects of gold and
silver nanoparticles on BCG and Escherichia coli…The results suggest the
nanoparticles have potential applications as anti-TB compounds… In terms of
anti-TB drug development, this study suggests that nanoparticles may represent
useful candidates for therapeutics.
Colloidal silver has been used as an
antibacterial agent since ancient Greece. Unlike antibiotic drugs, bacteria
cannot easily develop resistance because silver targets multiple components in
the bacterial cell. As a result, silver is used in medical equipment coatings
and dental resin components.
In conclusion, we have demonstrated that
gold and silver nanoparticles display excellent antibacterial potential for the
Gram negative bacteria E. coli and
the Gram positive bacteria BCG [which serves as a surrogate for the

this study suggests that NPs may represent useful candidates, but will require
significant development to ensure optimal bactericidal activity and low host

Of related interest, a company called Klearsen
Corporation apparently at one point developed an inhalable lung treatment
utilizing atomized particles of ionic silver along with a small amount of
The treatment was designed for tuberculosis, as well as for Mycopbacterium Avium Complex
(MAC), i.e., the cause of so-called “hot tub lung,” in which the pathogens Mycobacterium avium
or Mycobacterium abscessus
infect the lungs similar to the way the tuberculosis pathogen does.
According to a Klearsen Corporation
spokesman in March 2006, preliminary clinical studies had yielded some

and M. abscessus," said Steve Frank, the project

clinical trials has shown encouraging results and suggests that the treatment
period for this condition could be reduced from a typical 12- to 16-month
course of antibiotics to a 4-week course of the Klearsen
Respiratory Inhalation Therapy.
‘This is a very
exciting period of demonstration for our KC-287 antimicrobial compound,’ stated
Chris Groutt, the Marketing Director. ‘We have all seen the dramatic capabilities
of this product and now it is finally reaching the surface where it can benefit
huge portions of the population.’
The treatment utilizes a nebulized mist of KC-287 to repeatedly coat the inner
surfaces of the lungs. Being on the air-side of the tissue and formulated to
gain enhanced entry into the bacterial cells allow the active agent to very effectively
kill the mycobacteria with very low total dose to the subject.
treatment is still in the experimental stage, early results are so encouraging,
that clinical studies are moving forward.
Paul Whittle, the CEO of Klearsen Corp., is anxious
to see this technology applied to MAC as well as tuberculosis patients:
‘Klearsen Corporation holds several patents relating to the
respiratory therapy and the active agent. We are very pleased to see this level
of performance in vivo.’”
While the above treatment was apparently patented by the Klearsen Corporation, and as of 2006 the company was “still
seeking FDA approval.” That approval was
apparently never granted, and the company website no longer exists.
Nevertheless, people from around the world are reporting
good effects after using colloidal silver for TB. As an example, according to an online health
board, colloidal silver is being used by individuals in Nigeria to help stem
the country’s growing problem with tuberculosis. As one individual wrote:
“When we first started offering colloidal silver in 2007, we were
approached by seven patients. Six were HIV positive and one had Tuberculosis.
After three months of taking colloidal silver the lady with the TB was clean.
Her doctor couldn’t believe it.”
Of course, anecdotal reports like that do not constitute
“proof” that colloidal silver is effective against the TB pathogen. But you can learn more about silver’s ability
to kill the TB pathogen by reading the following two articles and related
