(Nancy Robey is one of the premiere researchers in the field
of Colloidal Silver used on AIDS and the HIV virus.)
Is there a simple, inexpensive treatment for AIDS? Perhaps so. An
obscure but crucial discovery was made at the Biochemsitry Unit of Upjohn
Labboratories in 1991:
"Among a number of metal ions tested, Zn2+ (zinc), Cn2+ (copper), and
Ag1+ (silver) were found to be the most effective inhibitors of renin and
the HIV protease (data not shown). Kenectic analysis revealed that
inhibition of renin by Ag1+ (silver) is basically identical with that seen
with Zn2+ (zinc), i.e., concompetitive, first order with respect to the
metal." Biochemistry, September 10, 1991.
Further testing at Upjohn, including a clinical trial, revealed that
zinc was toxic in effective dosages. This was the first report that silver
is a highly effective protease inhibitor. Over the following years, this
same discovery would be made several times. The following article is from
the Orem Herald of Provo, Utah, February 13, 1992, on page D1:
The small glass vial is filled with clear liquid resembling water. But
an Orem resident is convinced it contains the cure for AIDS. "I don't have a
doubt in my mind. It's what eats me alive at night," says Daryle Tichy.
Suspended in the liquid, which is mostly distilled water, are ultrafine
particles of positively charged silver. By researching within several
different sciences, Tichy has determined that the solution will kill the
AIDS virus without harming the human body.
Tichy, a full time member of the administrative staff at Brigham Young
University's physical plant, said he considers himself a searcher, not a
researcher. He looks for patterns and answers to problems by crossing the
boundaries of different disciplines such as physics and medicine...
Tichy said he had the material tested at two different labs; results
showed the solution killed a variety of pathogens, including the HIV virus.
A year later, this same discovery was made at the University Medical
Center in Geneva, Switzerland:
"Metal-binding proteins are important components of retroviruses such as
human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Therefore, metals could be used as
antiviral agents...silver is a highly active bacteriacidal metal with little
toxicity for humans. Silver has also been shown to be a potent inhibitor of
HIV protease." Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, December
Three years later, Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA,
made this same discovery apparently independently:
"We tested the ability of biotic silver protein to inhibit human
immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication in the human T cell line,
SupT 1, as measured by syncytia formation. We found that pure silver protein
inhibited HIV-1 replication in SupT 1 cells as measured by a reduction in
the appearance syncytia in cell culture. There appeared to be little if any
acute toxicity associated with the dose of biotic silver protein which
inhibited HIV-1 replication...These results are very encouraging and suggest
additional experiments that could be done..." Earl E. Henderson, Ph.D.
The following March 20, 1995, Professor Earl E. Henderson released the
findings of another experiment at Temple University:
"My laboratory has studied the effects of special formulation of biotic
silver protein on human immunodeficiency virus Type 1 (HIV-1) survival and
on latency reactiviation of HIV-1 in the human lymphoblastoid B cell line,
M57-3...The results of the...experiment show that exposure of HIV-1 to 1000
ppm of special formulation of silver protein for one hour at 37 degrees
Centigrade completely eliminates infectious HIV-1 as measured by syncytia
formation on SupT 1 cells..."
This is what an AIDS patient says about silver therapy:
"I was infected with HIV through a forced infection in 1991. I tested
positive for the HIV antibody November 18, 1991; of course, the same day as
my birthday. From that day forward, my life became something totally beyond
anything I could have expected...It has been rough, though. HIV has helped
me so, so much. The experience has given me access to my own soul again, to
a living, breathing relationship with Spirit; regardless, I have literally
gone to hell for much of it...While I had plenty of good days, I was getting
more and more bad days...
"The 106 degree fevers began to return, the intense body pain, the
harsh, long-lasting chills... I began to make my own immediate funeral
arrangments....and then this voice popped into my head and told me to get
the hell on colloidal silver RIGHT NOW! Sure enough, within a week I had
begun to gain the weight I had lost back, and in two weeks, I had gone back
to mountian climbing. Wow!
I still feel absolutely incredible. I have symptoms of nothing and I am
back to my hyperactive self. This new dosing of silver seems to be taking
care of my oral thrush problem and is keeping the MAC at bay...I'd like to
think I could be cured of this disease...I feel so good that, if I was to
start getting sick again and move closer to death, I would be so thankful
for this period of absolute health that it would be okay. I do not know how
long I am to live, nor do I know how my death will come." T. W.
