What Researchers Say -- Nano Silver

History of Use of Silver as medicine in U.S.

Colloidal Silver was in common use in America from the late 1800s until 1938. It was prescribed for a great variety of diseases and infections. Colloidal Silver was used for just about every aliment as there were no antibiotics available.

In the late 1800's Western scientists were able to prove what had been known in Eastern medicine for literally thousands of years . . . that silver was a proven germ fighter! By the early 1900's the antibacterial colloidal silver became the choice of medical practitioners. It proved to be enormously effective against infectious organisms and extremely safe to use, without the negative side-effects associated with drugs.

Founder of world wide pharmaceutical company Alfred Searle writes in “Colloids In Biology and Medicine”, in year 1919 that “Applying Colloidal silver to large number of Human subjects has been done to large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration, orally or hypodermically (injected under the skin) it has the advantage of being fatal to parasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable, it protects rabbits from 10 times the lethal dose of Tetanus or Diphtheria toxin.”

The use of silver as a medicine was widespread until World War II. As the pharmaceutical industry developed, it caused colloidal research to be set aside in favor of fast working and financially lucrative drugs and antibiotics became the standard treatment for infections.
