Governments seize colloidal silver being used to treat Ebola patients, says advocate

As far as I know, there has never been scientific proof/research showing Ebola can be stopped by nano-silver or any other alternative medical approach. That does not mean it would not work, only nothing has come out in published scientific literature on it, even in journals very open to alternative medicine.

But this article is totally correct in saying, “nanosilver is an obvious threat to pharmaceutical interests, and thus is being marginalized.” Silver is known to kill about 600 viruses, but it has also been shown ineffective against some viruses, it is not a silver bullet. But nano-silver, when used for 2 weeks or less, is completely harmless and very cheap. Trying it will do no harm, except to huge pharma profits if it works even partially. If I had ebola, I’d want to use well-established alternative protocols already used effectively against other wicked viruses. I’d use especially intravenous ozone (oxygen), which is known to kill every virus it comes in contact, and it is very cheap therapy, but it needs to be administered by an MD. I’d also use extremely large intravenous injections of vitamin C, 200,000 – 500,000 mgs+ everyday for a few weeks. Even these things are not silver bullets, but I suspect it would save – very conservatively speaking – about 60% – 75% of people who used it. The media is very, very blameworthy for narrowing the options only to vaccines and toxic drugs for curing ebola, Also, there is a whole world of therapies in Chinese herbal medicine that can be engaged against ebola, but which will be ignored or suppressed.

The real issue the mainstream utterly ignores is boosting the human immune system. Many natural therapies have been around for years to do this, yet NOTHING in mainstream media is said about it. Again, such won’t be a silver bullet, but will be much more effective than toxic drugs and vaccines against ebola. That unfortunate black man who just died from ebola in Texas was just a medical guinea pig for the pharma industry, since they were using an “experimental” drug on him. Obviously, it badly failed. For the medical-pharma  industrial complex, it’s either block-buster profit-making toxic drugs with terrible side effects, or nothing, let people die before anything inexpensive and effective can compete with the medicos-pharmas.
