Every year, farmers lose millions of dollars due to mastitis and uterine infections. This tip could be money in the bank for you, especially for dairy farmers and cattle and horse ranchers but the info also applies to the rest.
Antibiotic use incurs a cost of treatment and supervision, and an even higher cost in lost production. The milk is temporarily unusable, and with uterine infections there is a delay before the animal can breed again. In some cases complications from the antibiotic prolongs healing time, and drug-resistant infections pose additional difficulties. On the other hand, non-drug treatments give better results at a lower cost, and the animal can breed again more quickly.
colloidal silver (CS) infusions directly into the udder together with ONE IV CS treatment, given at the protocol beginning yielded 95% control of Staph A. in the SAME cows that earlier were non-responsive to antibiotic agents including vancomycin and methicillin.
In Ozone Treatment in Mastitis, Metritis and Retention of Fetal Membranes in the Dairy Cow, Italian researchers noted in a study involving 5,000 cows, that: ozone can sterilize all the pathogenic organisms (bacteria, virus, mycetes, yeast) and work against their toxins; antibacterial effects are the same or enhanced when mixed with milk; local insufflation can reach the milk compartments of the gland; ozone works always and faster; sometimes just ONE TREATMENT can cure the inflamed udder or uterus; no associated pathogen resistance is known. Conversely, they noted: antibiotic can sterilize (not always) only one kind of bacteria or fungi; it doesn't work against viruses and yeast; it doesn't work with toxins form the pathogenic organism; antibacterial effects tend to decrease when mixed with milk; local antibiotics can't reach the blocked milk ducts so parenteral antibiotic treatment is also needed; antibiotic treatment takes at least 3 days; the pathogens grown in the test culture aren't often the mastitis agent; the right antibiotic is often inefficient because of antibiotic resistance. The comparisons continue with:
ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT: milk of the affected cow treated with antibiotic can't be utilized for industrial or nutritional purpose, at least for 5 days; meat can be utilized for industrial or nutritional purpose only after withdrawal time (3 to 30 days or more); most interact with other drugs and with the gastrointestinal flora unpredictably; all show a degree of adverse reaction, even at therapeutic concentrations; it can often cause topical or general allergic reaction; it doesn't have metabolic or detoxicant properties and often causes liver, renal and gastrointestinal damages; it doesn't increase milk production; it is easy to have relapse of the mastitis, because the antibiotic destroys the micro-ambient flora.
OZONE TREATMENT: milk of the affected mastitis and metritis cow can be utilized immediately for industrial or nutritional purpose; meat can be utilized immediately for industrial or nutritional purpose; ozone doesn't have any adverse interaction with other drugs or with the gastrointestinal flora; it enhances the efficacy of other drugs; no allergic reaction shown at therapeutic ozone concentrations; it can cure toxiemia; it can increase milk production like the bovine growth hormone does (from 5 to 30%); relapse mastitis time is delayed.
Treating uterine infections in cattle and horses is done by douching with ozonated saline solution, and ozone/oxygen gas and ozonated oil also works well. Pregancy ratio can be increased even in absence of infection, meaning fewer attempts are needed to fertilize the animals by artificial insemination. The techniques predictably have been adapted by advanced practitioners for human use. Two recent Russian studies had very favourable outcomes involving intrauterine infection in pregnant women, and in threatened abortion as well, and the researchers concluded, Thanks to its numerous therapeutic effects ozone therapy increases the efficiency of treatment and allows the avoidance of many medicines traditionally applied for treatment of threatened abortion. The selected approach, ozone application in the complex treatment of obstetric complications has proved to be effective against gestosis and pregnancy anemia as well. These studies and others, including treatment of colpitis and in preventing hypoxia in the fetus of obese mothers, are available from the International Ozone Association.
Particularly nasty germs including Salmonella typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, all responded to doses of colloidal silver, in a time-kill study conducted by Mark A. Farinha, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology, University of North Texas. Fellow researcher Brooks Bradley pointed out that using 15 to 20 PPM colloidal silver disabled antibiotic-resistant Golden Staph just as rapidly as any of the non-resistant strains, so no further investigations were warranted. Says Bradley, Additionally, colloidal silver (CS) infusions directly into the udder together with ONE IV CS treatment, given at the protocol beginning yielded 95% control of Staph A. in the SAME cows that earlier were non-responsive to antibiotic agents including vancomycin and methicillin. And this, within 36 hours of initiation of the protocol.
