Bubonic Plague is Back: Colloidal Silver Still the Answer
News of a recent outbreak of bubonic plague in the western United States at the beginning of September is concerning, but colloidal silver could be helpful in the fight.
While the evidence for colloidal silver’s effectiveness against the bubonic plague pathogen is still circumstantial, it’s indeed quite interesting. Here’s what I can tell you, so far…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Many think of bubonic plague to be one of those extinct diseases from history, but every year there are small outbreaks even here in the United States.
According to the CDC, “Presently, human plague infections continue to occur in rural areas in the western United States, but significantly more cases occur in parts of Africa and Asia.”
And on September 7th, 2020, Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show reported,
“After new cases of the bubonic plague were found in Los Angeles, Colorado, and in Mongolia near the Russian border this summer, it appears the infamous plague strain responsible for killing tens of millions of Europeans during the 14th Century continues to surface, this time, in South Lake Tahoe, California.”
Even the U.S. Forest Service issued warnings for specific campgrounds, just before many Americans would be traveling for Labor Day weekend, in hopes of preventing campers from infection. They warned,
“The parking areas at the Tallac Historic Site, Kiva Beach/Picnic area and the Taylor Creek Visitor Center are temporarily closed to allow for treatment to mitigate fleas in the area, which have tested positive for Bubonic Plague bacteria.
…. Bubonic Plague is naturally occurring in many parts of California, including the Sierra Nevada, and can be transmitted through bites from infected fleas.”
Those are, of course, some very disconcerting reports.
A Little History About Silver and Bubonic Plague
We’ve all heard the story that during the 14th century bubonic plague outbreak in Europe, which killed an estimated 1.5 million people and was also known as the Black Death, the young children of wealthy families were instructed to suck on silver spoons each day to preserve their health.
In hindsight, modern commentators say the tiny amounts of silver ingested from sucking on the silver spoons boosted immunity and helped killed infectious microorganisms, thus preventing many cases of bubonic plague among those who could afford to eat from real silver utensils.
As the story goes, this is how the phrase, “Born with a silver spoon in his mouth” came about.
Whether or not the story is apocryphal is still up for debate.
So…Is Colloidal Silver Effective Against Bubonic Plague?
Unfortunately, there’s no modern-day clinical evidence that colloidal silver is effective against a bubonic plague infection in humans.
But despite the evidence for colloidal silver’s effectiveness against the bubonic plague pathogen being weak, it is also very interesting.
For example, a company called American Biotech manufacturers a colloidal silver-based topical disinfectant spray product called ASAP-AGX-32. This product is widely used in hospitals, labs, public schools, gymnasiums, etc. to decrease concentrations of germs on surfaces such as countertops.
American Biotech claims extensive lab testing they had conducted by an independent laboratory demonstrates their colloidal silver-based disinfectant spray kills the bubonic plague pathogen. In a press release, they wrote:
“Y. pestis is the bacterium that causes Bubonic Plague, which can kill 60% of untreated victims in three to five days.
We wanted to test the limits of our product’s capability, and we are delighted with the results.
A normal in vitro (test tube) bacterial test uses a load of 500,000 bacteria per milliliter. The level of plague causing bacteria in our sample was 160 times that normal amount.
The ASAP-AGX-32 silver-based disinfectant killed the bacteria in less than two minutes.”
Wow…that’ pretty darned amazing, I think you’ll agree!
American Biotech even took out a patent on the process for using their colloidal silver disinfectant spray to kill the bubonic plague pathogen, Yersinia pestis, as well as a number of other potentially deadly pathogens. In part, here’s what the patent states:
“By performing a standard kill-time assay using a Y. pestis suspension, it is demonstrated that silver compositions of the present invention are effective even against the bubonic plague bacteria.”
But…the laboratory study conducted on this colloidal silver product was strictly a test-tube study. It was not in vivo testing, i.e., inside the human body testing.
So this doesn’t prove colloidal silver would work against a bubonic plague infection in the human body. It only demonstrates that it works against the pathogen in a test-tube or on an open surface.
Nevertheless, it’s a significant indication that colloidal silver could indeed work against an infection caused by the bubonic plague pathogen.
Many more clinical studies would need to be conducted in order to determine whether or not colloidal silver would work against a bubonic plague infection in humans, and what the proper effective dosage would be.
One More Interesting Piece of Evidence
The only other evidence I’ve been able to find for colloidal silver’s potential effectiveness against bubonic plague is from former CIA microbiologist Larry Wayne Harris.
Harris claims to have tested colloidal silver against both the anthrax and bubonic plague pathogens while he was with the CIA, and again afterward. He claims to have found silver to be highly effective.
Indeed, when asked on national television whether there were any natural substances that could protect the population against anthrax, bubonic plague and other serious pathogens, Harris, who is author of Bacteriological Warfare: a Major Threat to North America, What You and Your Family Can Do Before and After, responded:
“The only natural substance I know of that is effective against these microbes is colloidal silver. I tested that myself when I was with the CIA, and found it effective against both anthrax and the bubonic plague pathogens.”
However, Harris also stated:
“In the event of outbreaks of biological plagues, those who have already been taking sufficient levels of colloidal silver will have an automatic resistance in their bodies…
If, however, a person has not been taking colloidal silver for 30 to 50 days prior to exposure to a plague, silver will have little effect.
This is because invading bacteria can kill within several days, while it takes weeks for colloidal silver to be spread through your entire body’s trillions of cells.”
That poses quite a dilemma.
While many people, including myself, have taken small amounts of colloidal silver daily for years, or even decades, many others only use it periodically – for example, if they feel a nasty cold coming on, or a bout of food poisoning, or some other infection that they want to deal with quickly, safely and naturally.
So for a good number of colloidal silver users, the idea that colloidal silver would only work against the plague if you’ve already been using it daily for one to two months before being exposed is not a very appealing one.
Is There a Way to Get Colloidal Silver
Into the Body, Quickly and Effectively?
Fortunately, there is a way to get colloidal silver into the bloodstream and the body’s cells and tissues quickly, easily and effectively, even if you haven’t been using colloidal silver regularly.
Though this has never been tested against the bubonic plague, of course, it’s certainly worth knowing about just in case. And we have the prestigious Health Sciences Institute (HSI) to thank for bringing this to our attention.
You see, HSI addressed this very topic in an e-alert to their members, back in October 2001, when they reported on a medical symposium that had been held after the 9-11 terror attacks to address dealing with germ-warfare agents like anthrax, the bubonic plague and others.
As the HSI pointed out at the time, one of their well-known health symposium panelists, Dr. Marcial-Vega, had discovered while dealing with pneumonia patients the fact that colloidal silver can be quickly and easily carried into the human blood stream and from there into the body’s cells and tissues, simply by nebulizing it into the lungs.
Nebulizing is a process by which colloidal silver is run through a small medical device called a nebulizer (inexpensively available on e-Bay) which turns the liquid colloidal silver solution into a fine atomized mist.
This atomized mist can easily be breathed into the lungs as it’s produced by the nebulizer. And from the lungs the body can efficiently and effectively distribute the colloidal silver straight into the blood stream, cells and tissues.
Since the form of bubonic plague which recently infected the man in Denver was the dreaded aerosol form, which causes infection when it’s breathed into the lungs, this information would seem to be all the more important.
Dr. Marcial-Vega’s Recommendation
Here then, in part, is what the Health Sciences Institute told their members, based on Dr. Marcial-Vega’s experience treating bacterial lung infections such as pneumonia:
“Just in his last decade of medical practice, Dr. Marcial-Vega has treated hundreds of people with a variety of viral, fungal, and bacterial pneumonias. And of all the available treatments, he has seen the greatest success with nebulizer treatments using a colloidal silver preparation.
Silver has long been known for its anti-bacterial properties, and the nebulizer allows the mineral to reach the lungs and kill harmful bacteria.
‘We are constantly filtering all kinds of bacteria through our lungs,’ explained Dr. Marcial-Vega. Normally, a healthy body is able to kill off any dangerous bacteria on its own. But in the case of illness, like pneumonia, or an especially lethal bacteria, the body may need some extra help.
For a lung infection with a potentially deadly airborne pathogen, he recommends a daily nebulizer treatment with 4 cc’s of colloidal silver.”
Dr. Marcial-Vega went on to say he has used the colloidal silver nebulizer treatments on infants, the elderly, and AIDS patients with pneumonia and has seen great results. All have responded quickly to the treatment even when no other approach seemed to help, and no one reported any adverse reactions.
Nebulizers are widely used to treat asthma, and are readily available at drug stores nationwide (or frequently on eBay). The cost generally runs between $50 and $120 for the machine, depending upon quality.
If you’re interested, you can read a more recent article explaining how to nebulize colloidal silver into the lungs with a nebulizer. There’s even a short video demonstrating the technique.
No Clinical Evidence, But…
Again, there’s no solid clinical evidence that colloidal silver would work in the human body against a bubonic plague infection. The evidence is strictly anecdotal, or based upon lab testing that was in vitro testing (i.e., outside the human body) rather than in vivo testing (i.e., inside the human body).
What’s more, nebulizing colloidal silver into the lungs is only a theoretical method of dealing with such a serious airborne infection.
Nevertheless, the historical, anecdotal and laboratory evidence to date is quite interesting, and arguably further clinical testing should be conducted.
After all, colloidal silver has been demonstrated anecdotally to beat many forms of serious infectious illness and disease. For example:
- Colloidal silver has been demonstrated – dozens of times now, anecdotally – to be effective against the deadly MRSA pathogen.
- And colloidal silver has been demonstrated to be effective against other deadly pathogens as well, including these seven.
- What’s more, colloidal silver has been demonstrated to be effective against numerous fungal pathogens as well.
- And it’s also been demonstrated to be effective against serious viral pathogens, as well as cold and flu viruses, the shingles virus and many others.
- Colloidal silver has even been used to beat serious cases of food poisoning.
For those reasons alone it’s worth keeping colloidal silver on hand for emergencies when conventional medical care might not be available, or might be ineffective.
Treat Your Pets for Fleas, Too!
Also, it’s important to reiterate that the Bubonic Plague pathogen is usually spread through flea bites. This makes it imperative to keep your pets – dogs and cats alike – as “flea free” as possible.
After all, pets can become infected by fleas from local mice, rats, ground squirrels or other vermin.
Fortunately, based upon anecdotal accounts, it’s becoming abundantly clear that colloidal silver has some remarkable anti-flea properties. As one colloidal silver user wrote:
“I started putting a small amount of colloidal silver into the water bowl my dog and cat drink out of. Funny thing happened. They don’t have fleas! I would normally be forced to use the strong, spot-on flea pesticides early in the spring but I haven’t used any at all this year. It’s almost unbelievable, but it works!”
Another reader wrote to say:
“I read your post about putting colloidal silver in my cat’s water bowl instead of using those harmful chemicals to prevent fleas. Well, so far (one month) it’s a complete success. Thank you so much!”
With my own pets, I’ve found that you can even squelch active flea outbreaks by using colloidal silver topically, as well.
When my full-grown Chow broke out with a miserable flea infestation several years back, I simply put some 10 ppm colloidal silver into a pump spray bottle, then thoroughly sprayed my dog’s fur and skin, rubbing the liquid colloidal silver gently into the fur and skin as deeply as I could. I did this three times per day and the fleas were gone in three days. Such a blessing. No harmful chemicals!
Not only that, but the silver brings massive relief to the pet’s skin, because colloidal silver helps stop the itching from the flea bites thanks to its profound (and clinically proven) anti-inflammatory and skin-healing properties.

Another good tip, if you’re concerned about the potential spread of the Bubonic Plague pathogen in your area, it would be wise to stay away from places where rodents like mice, rats, ground squirrels and others congregate. Again, rodents are the main carriers of the fleas that carry the Bubonic Plague pathogen.
Over the past decade, thousands of Americans have quietly abandoned the use of prescription antibiotic drugs and have turned instead to the use of safe, natural colloidal silver.
In fact, when people discovered they could cure the vast majority of their own infections – quickly, safely and effectively with just a few dollars’ worth of colloidal silver – word began to spread rapidly among the American public.
Big Pharma Sucks
The giant pharmaceutical companies quickly realized they would soon be losing tens of millions of dollars annually in sales of their expensive prescription antibiotic drugs if they didn’t do something about it.
Initially, they demanded that the FDA ban the sale of colloidal silver altogether. But try as they might, the FDA couldn’t find sufficient grounds for a ban.
After all, colloidal silver has a fully documented 90-year medical history of safety and effectiveness!
Not to be stopped, the big drug firms rapidly switched gears: They began pressuring the FDA to restrict the public’s access to information about colloidal silver.
They simply didn’t want any more people to learn how powerful and effective colloidal silver really is against infectious microorganisms and the deadly diseases they can cause.
And in a move that has stunned the medical community, the FDA promptly bowed to the wishes of the global pharmaceutical giants, placing into law the infamous new “Final Ruling” on colloidal silver in July 1999.
In spite of its medically documented 90-year history of safe and effective use, the FDA actually ruled that colloidal silver can no longer be sold in the United States if it is described as an infection-fighting agent!
Instead, it can now only be described as a “mineral supplement.”
If it is described as anything else in the advertising and labeling, the FDA can shut down the offending company and confiscate its inventory!
In essence, the FDA has ruled that the American public no longer has the right to know what a powerful and medically proven infection fighting agent colloidal silver is!
How Could This Happen?
How could this happen in America today?
The truth is, it has become abundantly clear that the FDA is now little more than the enforcement arm of the major drug companies!
Literally billions of dollars in profits are pocketed annually by these pharmaceutical giants thanks to the monopoly they hold on the sale of expensive prescription antibiotic drugs.
And safe, natural colloidal silver is considered to be the biggest threat of all to that multi-billion-dollar annual monopoly on prescription antibiotics.
Of course, anything that threatens those kinds of profits – and promises to put the power to heal infections back into the hands of average Americans – must be regulated into oblivion.
And the FDA’s perverse “medical Gestapo” now uses the infamous 1999 “Final Ruling” to do just that!
The First Amendment Rules!
Thankfully, the word about the phenomenal medical history behind colloidal silver, and its amazing proven infection-fighting qualities still manages to leak out under the First Amendment.
Through books, news articles, newsletters, and independent media that are not beholden to Big Pharma, the public is gradually catching on. The facts are slowly emerging.
And today, an estimated 10 million people throughout North America use colloidal silver to heal their own infections, and to stimulate immunity and heal illness and disease.
But the day is rapidly dawning in which all health information will be controlled by the medical bureaucrats, in spite of the First Amendment.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to learn all you can about the amazing healing and infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver, while the information is still freely available.
One thing you can do is check out The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, which, at a whopping 40 chapters and 547-pages, is literally encyclopedic in scope.
In fact, it’s been the #1 best-selling book in the world on making and using colloidal silver for the past 10 years running!
Don’t Be Left in the Dark
There’s only one way to stay ahead of the medical bureaucrats. And that’s to educate yourself while the information is still available.
So, don’t be left in the dark.
Instead, do all you can to learn about the powerful, infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver.
And then learn how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, and for less than 36 cents a quart, by clicking the link in this sentence.
Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
