Silver Shield - A Natural Antibiotic

There's a lot of news lately about Staph infections topping AIDS as the number one "killer". One article in particular said, "More than 90,000 Americans get potentially deadly infections each year from a drug-resistant staph super bug." It also stated, "Deaths tied to these infections may exceed those caused by AIDS". Well, fear not. There is something natural for everything that threatens us and Staph infections are no exception.

In this case what we're talking about are antibiotics. It is well known that antibiotics are over-used and are the cause of the super strains of bacteria and viruses that are responsible for many of the deaths now making the news. In Africa and other third world countries, the number of deaths are reaching record highs.

Being an herbalist I don't take antibiotics from doctors but rely instead on nature's antibiotics. My favorite is Golden Seal (which is known as "Nature's Antibiotic"). I've always kept Golden Seal on hand during cold and flu season.

How do you know when you have good Golden Seal? Price will be a good sign that it is the right stuff. Demand and supply are what sets the price and Golden Seal is in short supply and high in demand making it one of the more high priced herbs. If you see Golden Seal advertised that says, "Buy 1 for $5 and get the second free", you'll want to pass it up for something more trustworthy. It is also bright yellow in color. Many herb companies will comply with the FDA ruling that says 25% fillers are allowed. Nature's Sunshine does not use fillers in their herbs. The quality control at NSP is tops in the industry and has long set the standard for quality herbal products. Nature's Sunshine's Golden Seal is high quality and works right away. You would need 4 capsules of any other brand to 1 of Nature's Sunshine.

The problem with Golden Seal is it should not be used by people who have low blood sugar, also known as Hypoglycemia. It has a tendency to drop blood sugar which makes it okay for anyone who is Hyperglycemic (high blood sugar). So if you have a low blood sugar you would not want to take Golden Seal.

So what would you take if you needed a natural antibiotic? Being an herbal person I never thought of taking anything but herbs as antibiotics, but the information below has changed my mind. Most silver products are actually ionic silver, which is created by a low cost process of electrolysis. Because it is in ionic form, it is highly reactive with chlorine and other elements. So when ionic silver enters the digestive tract it reacts with the hydrochloric acid in the stomach to form silver chloride. This renders the product therapeutically inert and may also make the product cause a blue/gray discoloration of the skin. A solution of just 100 parts per million of ionic silver will cause this condition. If you want to know if your Colloidal Silver is an ionic silver...put some in a glass and add some salt to it. If the silver solution clouds up, it will not be effective once it hits your stomach.

True colloidal silver is expensive to manufacture but it will not react with stomach acid or chloride ions. Instead, it will be absorbed into the blood stream where it is effective in destroying pathogenic organisms and be easily eliminated from the body so you don't have to worry about your skin turning gray.

Nature's Sunshine's Colloidal Silver has always been high quality. But now there is even better news because NSP has a Patented colloidal silver guaranteed to not separate out of solution and it is called Silver Shield. Let me tell you about this product and then you can decide when and how you want to use it.

Silver Shield, when held up to the light, will have a slight color to it and will not react with salt. It is completely non-toxic and is a patented product approved by the EPA. It is totally safe for children, the elderly, pregnant and nursing mothers, and your pets! It has been tested and proven effective against the pathogens that cause malaria, upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, urinary tract infections, ear, eye and throat infections, vaginal yeast infections, food poisoning, fungal skin infections, diarrhea, impetigo, strep throat, pneumonia, and many others.

With this antibiotic there are no side-effects, it is non-toxic, you can take it internally, spray it on wounds thereby prohibiting Staph infections, spray it on carpets, bedding (both people and animals) where it will kill bacteria and viruses harboring in fibers, spray it on plants where it will kill bacteria, spray it on your pets and on their food, on mats in schools where bodies roll and fight and sweat. Used in schools it will stop the spread of Staph safely and effectively. There are many uses for this antibiotic and it will only kill the harmful bacteria...not the good bacteria. Super bugs...so-long! Your body will never get used to it. No more yeast infections either! Colds and flu, viruses, wounds of any kind. Gone. No one should be without this stuff.

And another thing. For every bottle donated to a hospital - Nature's Sunshine will match the donation.

If there were ever a time to build a business - it is now. Hospitals should be buying Silver Shield by the pallet! Every home should not be without it. Take it on trips and to the gym in a spray bottle. For people who get terrible coughs related to colds and flu - this is a must. One person told me their cough and cold was gone in just days as compared to weeks and another had an open sore on his leg and it healed in 3 days (spray it on the wound and take it internally).

This is not something that is new. Colloidal Silver was in use before Big Pharma introduced antibiotics. The only side-effect with the Colloidal Silvers of the past was that over-use would cause that "graying" of the skin that has already been talked about. Silver Shield goes above and beyond antibiotic expectations and will never turn your skin gray!
