Ulcers are caused by a bacterium called H. pylori. It destroys the lining of the stomach and intestines, sometimes causing a bleeding ulcer. By drinking one teaspoon of silver three to five times a day, it can enter the stomach and destroy the bacteria causing the ulcer.It should take two weeks to get the H. pylori under control, but treatment should be continued for at least a month. H. pylori can return just by having poor hygiene, eating out at restaurants, or not washing your hands. Using silver gel can prevent its spread.
