Silver is a potent natural antibiotic; shattering anaerobic bacteria because of its specific vibratory frequency. Unlike modern pharmaceutical antibiotics, nature's remedy leaves helpful, aerobic pro-biotic bacteria intact. Silver's importance as a bactericide has been documented only since the late 1800's, but its use in purification has been known throughout the ages.*
Early records indicate that the Phoenicians, for example, used silver vessels to keep water, wine, and vinegar pure during their long voyages. In America, pioneers moving west put silver and copper coins in their water barrels to keep them clean. In fact, "born with a silver spoon in his mouth" is not a reference to wealth, but to health. In the early 18th century, babies who were fed with silver spoons were healthier than those fed with spoons made from other metals, and silver pacifiers found wide use in America because of their beneficial health effects.*
