Great Grandma put a silver dollar in the milk to keep it from spoiling.
Also, it is well known that the ancient Greeks knew the medical value of silver.
It was observed that those ancient families who ate from silver utensils were never sick and had few infections. This knowledge passed on to kings, emperors, sultans, and their families and members of their royal courts. They ate from silver plates, drank from silver cups, used silver utensils and stored their food in silver containers. As a result of this use, silver was ever so slightly rubbed off and mixed in their foods. And after a generation or two, they received the full benefit from the silver particles which found their way into the body of these people, hence had little chance of getting any infectious illness.
These royals were called “Blue Bloods“ because their skin had a blue tint, due to the accumulation of minute Nano traces of pure metallic silver. (This is called Argyria, see Dr.Google)
The common red-blooded folk, however, ate from earthenware dishes with iron utensils and frequently were sick, whilst the royals enjoyed the freedom from infectious disease as early as from birth.
There are many historical references on Colloidal Silver.
One of the most complete is published in “The Lancet “dated Dec. 12, 1914.
It was in common use in America from the late 1800s until 1938. There were none of today’s antibiotics available, and Colloidal Silver was used for just about everything. But Colloidal Silver was relatively expensive then, just as today’s man-made new antibiotics are expensive.
Due to a recent breakthrough in the modernisation of production, a concentrated product ADVANCED SILVER (see my website) is available at a tremendous saving in cost.
Not only is Colloidal Silver much cheaper than it used to be, but it also is much cheaper than the newest antibiotics.
BLUE BLOODS TODAY
There are true Blue Bloods yet today.
All those who through the centuries had the knowledge and resources to use medicinal silver are still Blue Bloods. (Why give up something that works, is simple, cheap and so important to good health?) Many of the world leaders, presidents, prime ministers, their families use daily Colloidal Silver.
By taking they can prevent the otherwise certain eventuality of contracting infections.
There is another group of people who are also Blue Bloods. These are people who may not have their pictures in newspaper for making global decisions, but they have learned that sufficient daily Colloidal Silver will make anyone a true Blue Blood in about a week, preventing infection thereafter and vastly increasing the chances of surviving a severe burn injury or an outbreak of biotoxins and also enjoying an increased rate of healing and better digestion.
They can find no other way so simple, so quick, and certain or so cheap. Take daily a plastic spoon on an empty stomach and keep under the tongue before swallowing, it attracts all kinds of microorganism and leaves the body unchanged. Pattaya hospitals use Colloidal Silver gel, for burning and other wounds. Surgeons here put sometimes a silver strip in a post-operative wound.
So, the use of Nature’s antibiotic in a time of increasingly resistant bacteria is not so “alternative “as you sought.
And YES: silver spoons are not available anymore.
