Prescription antibiotics work by killing harmful bacteria (not viruses) but at the same time they wipe out the good bacteria that reside in your intestinal tract. These friendly bacteria are what help protect you from bad bacteria so when they are destroyed by antibiotics you then become susceptible to other disease-causing bacteria.

Prescription antibiotics will cause bacteria to adapt for their survival. By overusing antibiotics, “super-bugs” or antibiotic-resistant bacteria are being created. Over time, these “super-bugs” do not respond to treatment with prescription drugs.


We are not saying that there won’t be times when a prescription antibiotic won’t be required, but if you are not in a life threatening situation we hope you will decide to try the natural route first. You can always fall back on the prescription antibiotic if your infection does not respond.

If you are diligent with your nutritional protocol then you should be able to overcome your infection naturally. One of our clients tried prescription antibiotics for her MRSA infection (MRSA is a very invasive antibiotic-resistant bacteria) and she wasn’t getting better. She followed our recommendations and completely cleared her infection in less time that it takes to be on a course of prescription antibiotics.

Now that is impressive!


Every household and travel bag should have Silver Biotics Liquid, Silver Biotics Gel and Grapefruit Seed Extract/GSE (not to be confused with the antioxidant Grapeseed Extract) ready and available to use. Why?


These products can be used any time you would commonly take an antibiotic or apply an antibiotic gel, but unlike antibiotics, the Silver Biotics Liquid or GSE will not destroy your friendly intestinal bacteria flora. The Silver Biotics Gel will not destroy the good bacteria on your skin or cause you to absorb any toxic substances.


Silver is a potent bactericide. That is why early settlers would throw silver dollars into their wells or water barrels. During plagues in Europe, wealthy families gave their children silver spoons to suck on (hence the saying “born with a silver spoon in your mouth”). Before World War II, silver solutions were often used as a topical antiseptic, and also an oral or even injected, antibiotic.

Silver has been used through history to protect against bacteria but to use it in today’s world req uires a technology that could suspend the silver in liquid and still have an effective yet safe product.

Silver Biotics, made with Silver Sol Technology, is that product. People will sometimes refer to it as “colloidal silver” but it is actually far superior to traditional colloidal silver. Here is why:


The Silver Biotics Liquid will not accumulate in your body like other colloidal or ionic silver preparations. You will NOT turn blue, even if you drink a bottle every day for years.

It is the ONLY silver product that holds 3 patents. This means that Silver Biotics made with Silver Sol Technology is the only silver product that has been scientifically proven time and time again.

Unlike traditional antibiotics, it does not cause bacteria to mutate or become resistant to it producing bacteria such as MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and other super bugs.

It can be used inside the body (internal), as well as on the skin and in the orifices (external).

It does not interfere with the action of antibiotics or other drugs. In fact, if you MUST take an antibiotic, Silver Biotics is proven to increase the effectiveness of an antibiotic tenfold plus ensures you eradicate the bacteria entirely in the event you have a strain that is resistant to certain antibiotics.

**If you are allergic to silver jewellery, you should patch test the inside of your arm to make sure that you will not have an allergic reaction to Silver Biotics. It is rare but it can happen.


Many medications dealing with conditions such as skin fungus or other infections can take weeks to work. Silver Biotics on the other hand begins to destroy pathogens in seconds. If you can keep the Silver Biotics Liquid or Gel in contact with mold, bacteria, yeast and viruses for 6 minutes , you will kill the bad guys 99.99%. Even if the contact is only15 seconds, then you will kill 80%. The longer the contact, the better.


Because Silver Biotics kills mold and bacteria it can store safely for years (well beyond the expiry date on the label).


GSE is a viscous liquid derived from the seeds of grapefruit. It has very similar actions to the Silver Biotics but there are a few significant differences that you should be aware of.

Even though GSE has been laboratory tested and found to be effective against the list below, it does not hold any patents and so claims cannot be substantiated. We know it works because we use it ourselves and have dozens and dozens of client testimonials to support its efficacy.

It has been effective against E-coli, Campylobacter pylori, Helicobacter pylori, Herpes Simplex virus Typ e 1, Cholera, Legionella, Salmonella, Blastocystis Hominis, Monilla albicans, Influenza A2 virus, Candida albicans, Giardia lamblia, Chlamydia trachomatis and more.

GSE is very bitter and hard to administer to children or the very sick, whereas Silver Biotics is practically tasteless.

Grapefruit Seed extract in high doses can bother some people’s stomachs, but Silver Biotics will not.

It is not advised to use Grapefruit Seed extract on sensitive areas such as eyes, ears, nose, and vagina at all. Nor is it very pleasant to gargle with. Even diluted, it is much too potent for contact with those delicate membranes. However, the Silver Biotics is completely safe for such uses.

The only side effect of GSE could be an allergic reaction, and that is rare. Like Silver Biotics, it does not have a negative impact on your beneficial bacteria.

Two definite pros of Grapefruit Seed Extract are that it is very potent s o a small amount will go a long way. This makes it more economical than the Silver Biotics. It too is compatible with other natural remedies and medications, but it does not enhance the benefits of an antibiotic. It will however act like Silver Biotics in helping to protect you from getting a Candida Yeast overgrowth if you must take an antibiotic.


For all three products, because they are safe to use, it is better to use what you think might be too much, than too little. We say if it’s a little problem such as the onset of a cold, or small scrape for example, then take 2 tsp of Silver Biotics or 15 drops of GSE or use an application of Silver Biotics Gel 2 to 3 times per day. If it’s a bigger problem like the flu, a bladder infection, food poisoning, or an infected wound, then take 1-2 tsp of Silver Biotics, 15 drops of GSE or apply the Silver Biotics Gel hourly. The sooner you start using the pr oducts, the better. Don’t wait for a diagnosis at the doctor’s office. If you have the product at home, you can begin using it at the first sign of any symptoms. This increases your chances of preventing further infection and/or fending it off completely before it takes hold.

For example, when I got a bladder infection in Mexico, I took 15 drops of GSE every hour until the infection was gone (only took 6 hours), then I took it 3 times a day for a few days just to make sure it didn’t come back.

Silver Biotics liquid can eradicate an eye infection in less than 24 hours whereas prescription medication can take 2 to 4 days to work.

Note: You can put the GSE in water but it is quite bitter. You can hide the taste a bit by putting it in a few ounces of juice (orange or grapefruit is the best). Whatever liquid you use, make sure to stir the contents before swallowing.
If I felt like I was getting a sore throat, I would gargle for as long as I could (then swallow) with the Silver Liquid every hour until the sore throat was gone, then I would gargle 3 times a day for a couple of days to make sure that it was gone. Some clients find the Silver Biotics spray bottle handy for this purpose. Just spritz your throat every few hours.

Apply the Silver Biotics Gel the same way you would apply an antibiotic cream. On anything from cut and scrapes to bug bites and burns (it won’t make the burn sticky as most ointments will). There are more instructions for use in the FAQ under “product manual” – “antibiotics”. You will learn more about these fabulous products in upcoming CTH lessons.

Yours in Total Health,
