Bacterial Infections

Mesosilver is a true colloidal silver consisting of pure, sterilized water and pure silver particles. The particles in Mesosilver are 0.65 nanometers in diameter, the smallest available in a silver colloid. It is the small particle size combined with high particle concentration that makes Mesosilver the most effective silver colloid available. Mesosilver supplements your immune system to fight pathogens.

Mesosilver does not interact or interfere with medications you may be taking. No adverse side effects have been reported from Mesosilver.

Bacterial Infections

Bacterial infections are caused by the presence and growth of microorganisms that damage host tissue. The extent of infection is generally determined by how many organisms are present and the toxins they release. Worldwide, bacterial infections are responsible for more deaths than any other cause. Symptoms can include inflammation and swelling, pain, heat, redness, and loss of function. The most important risk factors are burns, severe trauma, low white blood cell counts, very old or young patients, patients on immunotherapy treatment, and anyone with malnutrition or vitamin deficiency.

Bacteria are generally spread from an already infected person to the newly infected person. The most common invasion routes are inhalation of airborne bacteria, ingestion into the stomach from dirty hands or utensils, or through contaminated food or water, direct contact with an infected area of another person's body, contaminated blood, and by insect bite.

Bacteria consist of only a single cell, but don't let their small size and seeming simplicity fool you. They're an amazingly complex and fascinating group of creatures. Bacteria have been found that can live in temperatures above the boiling point and in cold that would freeze your blood. They "eat" everything from sugar and starch to sunlight, sulfur and iron.

There are thousands of species of bacteria, but all of them are basically one of three different shapes. Some are rod- or stick-shaped and called bacilli (buh-sill-eye).

Others are shaped like little balls and called cocci (cox-eye).Others still are helical or spiral in shape, like the Borrelia pictured at the top of this page.

Some bacterial cells exist as individuals while others cluster together to form pairs, chains, squares or other groupings.
