Superbugs are Resistant to Antibiotics

Sixty-five years ago, Alexander Fleming, MD, the scientist who discovered penicillin (and the man in the photo below), warned people that doctors are abusing penicillin and the effects this would have. He said, “In such cases, the thoughtless person [physician] playing with penicillin is morally responsible for the death of the man who finally succumbs to infection with the penicillin-resistant organism [superbug]. I hope this evil can be averted.”

Sadly, what Alexander Fleming warned us about has come true. Because penicillin is in almost all antibiotics, and because as a society we are very liberal with our antibiotics, multiple strands of superbugs have evolved. An example of this occurred at UCLA with a superbug called CRE. At least seven people were infected in this incident, and two of them died. Also, 15% of pneumonia cases originate from a superbug. Doctors are aware of this rising epidemic, and are asking that alternatives to antibiotics be found. Lots of money and research are being invested in this field, but no results have arisen.

Are you beginning to worry? Not to fear, hear at The Spring, we have a solution to superbugs. Colloidal silver has been used for thousands of years by many different cultures to treat infections. Studies have been done on various parts per million (ppm) of colloidal silver, and it has been found that 23 ppm is the best and most effective. You can’t purchase this product over the counter, so stop by The Spring to pick some up and keep your family safe and healthy.

With flu season around us, it would be wise to have colloidal silver in your medicine cabinet.
