Could Colloidal Silver Have Saved this 8-Year Old Boy from Flesh-Eating Bacteria?
According to a Fox News article, 8-year old Liam Flanagan “took a tumble off his bike on the driveway of his family’s farm” in Oregon, and suffered a large gash on his thigh.
He was rushed to the local emergency room, where the doctors put seven stitches in the wound, “slapped on a bandage” and sent him home.
But within days he was in severe pain. So his mom took him back to the hospital where it was discovered his wound had become infected with flesh-eating bacteria, resulting in a condition known as necrotizing fasciitis, in which the skin is eaten away by the bacteria.
Even antibiotic drugs and repeated surgical removal of the infected tissue resulting in the removal of much of the flesh on the right side of his body didn’t help. “They basically cut him up piece by piece,” the boy’s step-father told reporters. “They kept cutting and hoping. Cutting and hoping.”
Young Liam died of the infection several days afterwards.
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
According to MayoClinic.com, the condition known as necrotizing fasciitis, or flesh-eating disease, happens when certain drug-resistant strains of bacteria “enter the body through a break in the skin.”
The condition generally spreads quickly because the pathogen is so aggressive. Symptoms can include blisters, fever, fatigue, and pain worse than a person would expect based on the wound’s appearance. Gradually, the skin can turn purple as tissue and muscle is destroyed.
Treatment involves immediate delivery of IV antibiotics. Surgical removal of dead or infected tissue from the wound is often required.
The so-called “flesh eating bacteria” behind the condition known as necrotizing fasciitis can vary. It’s frequently caused by drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
But it can also be caused by Group A Streptococcus (group A strep), Klebsiella, Clostridium, Escherichia coli, and others.
Would Colloidal Silver Help?
Is colloidal silver effective against the drug-resistant pathogens behind necrotizing fasciitis? And might taking colloidal silver orally, and also apply silver topically, have saved this child’s life?
Based on nearly a dozen recent clinical studies as well as numerous anecdotal accounts, it’s quite possible colloidal silver could have helped turn the tide for the child.
While there’s no way to know for sure if colloidal silver could have saved this 8-year old boy from necrotizing fasciitis, if it were my child I’d have certainly made sure he got silver — both orally and topically — the minute the doctors had confirmed “flesh eating bacteria” was involved.
Frankly, in my household, cuts, scratches and other wounds are always treated first with colloidal silver as a means of helping prevent what happened to this child.
Obviously, the biggest problem behind necrotizing fasciitis is that the pathogens that cause it are generally drug-resistant.
But clinical studies have demonstrated silver to be effective against some 49 different drug-resistant superbugs — including MRSA and the erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pyogenes (known to cause necrotizing fasciitis).
And the studies show the silver works whether used alone or in combination with prescription antibiotic drugs.

What’s more, clinical researchers now admit that silver can be used with antibiotic drugs in order to make them work more effectively against serious, drug-resistant pathogens. To learn more, see:

The more you study the situation, the more apparent it becomes that doctors are doing their patients a grave disservice by not including silver in the treatment regimen – particularly when treating serious conditions such as necrotizing fasciitis.
As Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D. board certified immunologist and former Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has stated:
“Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs.
Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science – natural silver.
I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent.”
A Fascinating Account
Here’s a fascinating account from a female paramedic whose diabetic friend ended up with a MRSA-infected leg that got so bad, the leg was in need of urgent amputation. It’s a lengthy story, but it’s well worth the read:
“I have a dear friend who is well over 500 pounds. My car is the only one that he can ride comfortably in AND tow the trailer with his enormous electric chair. For that reason, I am the one that takes him to his VA appointments (105 miles away) and his doctor appointments (45 miles away).
He suffered from MRSA in bedsores on his leg that had not healed for 8 years. At a doctor appointment, his doctor said we needed to think about amputation of his lower leg to keep the MRSA at bay.
I expressed concern that if we couldn’t heal his bedsores, how would we be able to heal an amputation. I was told that the MRSA was not colonized directly below the knee and the skin would heal there. But I was skeptical. I also didn’t know how he would handle anesthesia because of his size and inability to lay down flat for any length of time.
So I asked the doctor to let me try something for one month and he just said, “At his point we have nothing to lose except his leg.” He said he was going to call in a prescription for another high strength antibiotic. History showed us that as long as he stayed on the antibiotics, the progression of the MRSA would slow down. But within two weeks of getting off of the antibiotics, he would get very ill again.
As we drove home, I explained my Colloidal Silver idea to my friend. This was on a Thursday, I believe. I gave him a quart of silver to drink and a quart for his wounds. I told him to take a “drink of approximately 1/4 cup” twice a day. I also asked him to have his home health nurse (who’d been working with him for years) to soak the bandage with it when she redressed his sores.
On Monday, he called the doctor’s office to find out why they hadn’t called in the antibiotics. The nurse got on the phone and asked why he wasn’t in the hospital. The doctor had assumed that he was going directly to the hospital when we left his office.
The nurse told my friend that he needed to get to the hospital right away as the blood work done in the office at his last appointment showed he only had days to live!!!!
He called me and we rushed over to the hospital and you know what we found? NO MRSA! The doctor couldn’t believe it. Over the next few weeks, the home health nurse saw his wounds closing up. She was amazed that the skin was granulating again.
…I am happy to report that he still has his leg, is on a weight loss program in a nursing home, and he has lost over 80 pounds and will be coming home WITH HIS LEG!!! Once home, his nurse can start soaking the bandages and dressings in silver and I have no doubt that it will heal the rest of the way.
It only took 4 days for his blood work to go from system-wide Septicemia with MRSA to “No Detectable Infection”.
I wish we could work on his sores but I have to get him out of the medical facility as they won’t let me put anything on his bandages and dressings. However, the sores are now wrapped by the doctor in a special silver-impregnated dressing. So I know the Dr. understands that silver helps. They just will not let me soak his dressings. Hospital policy.
I have several friends that use a nasal spray bottle of silver to inhale silver when they feel a sinus infection starting. I also spray it on my kid’s scrapes. I put a 1/4 cup in the washer to keep my towels from sour smells.
I put it in my chicken’s water to keep them well. My friend is giving her daughter silver to help with her eczema. I haven’t seen her but her husband said it was working and asked for another quart yesterday.
I did NOT get an H1N1 vaccination for myself or my children. As a paramedic, I have a pretty good immune system and will trust silver to take care of any infections that I get exposed to. It is documented that it killed the systemic MRSA, worked topically on the MRSA-laden bed sores, AND lowered his need for hypertensive meds.
I am a believer!!!! Actually, I don’t just “believe” in it, I KNOW it works!”
One More Fascinating Account
Here’s an account in which a doctor who was hospitalized with a drug-resistant MRSA infection, and whose wife had been told by hospital staff to get his affairs in order because they couldn’t get the infection under control, actually lived through the ordeal after his wife started giving him colloidal silver right there in the hospital:
“In November 2009 I was in the morning breakfast hot spot and as usual I was talking to a friend about his health challenges unaware that a doctor’s wife was listening.
After my friend left, the doctor’s wife asked me if I knew anything that would cure MRSA.
I I told her that I made something called colloidal silver that should help. She told me that her husband was a doctor and he had MRSA. I offered to give her some colloidal silver the next day.
When I arrived at the Nursing Home and met her she was very upset. The doctors overseeing her husband’s case had told her earlier that morning that she needed to let him go because there was nothing more that they could do for him, and that they were withdrawing all his medications. He also had a feeding tube.
I told her that I could not tell her what to do for him, but I could tell her what I would do for myself if I were in the same situation. I gave her a dropper bottle of the colloidal silver and said if it were me I’d put two droppers of colloidal silver under my tongue every hour as long as I was awake.
The next day, and there after, I would do it every two hours while I was awake. If I had a feeding tube I would apply one tablespoon through the tube three times a day.
After four days she called and said that they had retested him for MRSA and he tested negative. She was one happy lady!
I think everyone should own a Micro Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.”

Where to Obtain Colloidal Silver
Colloidal silver works wonders for many types of infections. It’s not just for colds and flu. Its broad-spectrum infection-fighting qualities make it the #1 “go to” natural remedy for just about any kind of infection.
Indeed, the antimicrobial benefits of colloidal silver for sinus infections can be astonishing (see here). Likewise, colloidal silver’s ability to wipe out eye infections is applauded worldwide (see here). And its ability to clear up ear infections, often in a single day, is now well-known to tens of thousands of people worldwide (see here and here).
Colloidal silver’s anti-viral benefits are practically legendary (see here). It’s anti-fungal benefits have astonished medical researchers for years (see here and here) It’s profound anti-bacterial benefits, even against stubborn drug-resistant pathogens, are gaining the attention of clinical researchers worldwide (see here and here).
What’s more, its ability to help resolve tooth and gum infections has benefited tens of thousands of people (see here). Its dramatic skin-healing benefits are acknowledged by both medical science as well as thousands of people around the globe (see here).
Its ability to wipe out pet infections is acknowledged by savvy pet owners across the globe (see here). And its astonishing anti-cancer benefits are finally being acknowledged by medical science, as well (see here).
And there’s much, much more (see here).
So if you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America. It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because it works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, colloidal silver has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.
The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.) Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 16,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver at health food stores because it heals infections and prevents the spread of germs and disease faster and better than anything else on the planet, and because it’s safe and completely natural, to boot!
So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:
Make Your Own High-Quality
Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
As I mentioned, typical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.
But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about 36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.
Compared to typical health food store prices, your first two one-quart batches literally pay for the entire cost of your new generator! Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!
In fact, by making your own high-quality colloidal silver with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll be as close to having FREE colloidal silver as you can get, and for the rest of your life!
You’ll never have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices again!
The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is now the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator. Here are just a few reasons why you should own one…
- It pays for itself after your very first batch or two — your total cost to make your first one-quart batch is about 36 cents, compared to the $240 you’d pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
- Safe, simple to operate…No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time! Here’s a short pictorial demonstrating how astonishingly easy it is to use a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge:
- Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer. Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm (or even larger), and you’ll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is the very best there is! Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to maybe 30% or 40% with many health food store brands!
- Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb – you won’t even see a blip on your electric bill!
- Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
- Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances – you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!
Just read through some of the testimonials below to see for yourself how you’ll save literally thousands of dollars per year by making your own colloidal silver with your brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge!
Here’s what one customer recently wrote to tell us:
“Owning a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge has given us the luxury of being able to use high-quality colloidal silver any time we need it. And we never have to worry about the costs because it only costs a few pennies per quart to make! It is without a doubt the single-best money-saving appliance in my entire house!
Best of all, the machine is very easy to use, and easy to store. I was concerned about ease-of-use, but my fears were unfounded. After I got mine and used it, I immediately bought one and sent it to my 83 year old mom, and she uses it regularly as well.
Now that I have a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can use colloidal silver for everything — disinfecting the kitchen sinks, countertops, and the cutting board… spraying the toilet bowls, and the bathroom countertops and sinks… spraying it on my toothbrush to prevent bacterial growth…rinsing my mouth with it to prevent cavities and gum disease…you name it.
I even put it in the laundry rinse cycle when I do my linens, towels and kitchen rags, so I don’t have to wash them as frequently. It really keeps them fresh, and there’s never any mold or mildew anywhere in our house.
I also put some in the cat’s water bowl each day, and the dog’s too. We use it in the bathtub for skin problems. And of course we drink it when our tummies are queasy, or when we feel a cold or flu coming on. We also gargle with it in order to get rid of sore throats, and sniff it up our noses to get rid of sinus problems.
My husband even sprays it on his hair in the mornings, and has completely eliminated his lifelong dandruff problem. And he sprays a little bit in his eyes from time to time, and now has no more recurrent problems with sties.”
— K. Sullivan, NM
And here’s what another happy customer wrote to say about the tremendous savings she’s achieved by no longer having to purchase her colloidal silver through health food stores:
“We make a quart of colloidal silver at least once a week with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge. I finally sat down and figured out how much this machine has been saving us. By making our own colloidal silver we’ve saved $11,503.20 this year alone, compared to the cost of colloidal silver at our local health food store.
The cost for colloidal silver at our local health food store is $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But with my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can make eight times that amount (i.e., a full quart) for about 35 cents total cost.
If I were to purchase a quart of colloidal silver at the health food store, which would be eight of those tiny, four-ounce bottles, the cost would be a whopping $240 (i.e., 8 x $30 = $240) compared to the 35 cents I now spend to make a full quart!
Here’s the breakdown of our costs to make a full quart of colloidal silver with our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator: It costs us about a dollar for a gallon of steam-distilled water at Walmart. So a quart of the steam-distilled water costs about 25 cents. And I estimate we use maybe a nickel’s worth of electricity and maybe another nickel’s worth of silver from the silver rods for every one-quart batch of colloidal silver we make. So that’s 35 cents a quart, all told, for each quart of micro-particle colloidal silver we make!
And frankly, considering how long the .999 fine silver rods have lasted (over a year and a half, so far, for the most recent set), I think it’s probably even cheaper than that. But it’s the lifetime savings we’ve experienced that’s just mind-boggling to me.
For example, we’ve had our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver unit for nearly five years now. And as I mentioned we make one quart per week, and we spend about 35 cents a week on making colloidal silver.
This means we save about $239.65 a week by not having to purchase a quart’s worth of colloidal silver at our local health food store. So do the math: In just one month, the savings is $958.60…in one year, the savings is $11,503.20…and in five years we’ve saved approximately $57,516.00!
When you put pencil to paper and figure it out, it definitely takes you by surprise. You just think ‘No way. I must have multiplied that wrong.’
But it’s true. The savings is legitimately well over $11,000 a year over health food store prices for colloidal silver, if you make and use a quart of colloidal silver a week like we do! And we reap that incredible savings from the very reasonable $250 investment we made in purchasing our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
In their advertising literature, The Silver Edge says the unit completely pays for itself after your first couple of one-quart batches. But really, that’s quite an understatement when you realize the true extent of your savings!
Of course, once you start making your own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you don’t really think about how much you’re saving compared to health food store prices, because it just becomes a normal part of your everyday life. But the savings is nevertheless astonishing when you reflect on it.
What’s especially nice is being able to produce a significantly higher-quality colloidal silver than what’s generally available to the public through health food stores, especially at such a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost.”
— Marie Wilkey, SC
