Episode 157: Don’t Take Medical Advice from Jim Bakker

Jim Bakker was famous a a televangelist who went to prison for fraud. He’s back, and he is selling a silver based product to combat coronavirus.

Dr, Franklin Wefald: I hope that the Lord will reach down and touch Jim Bakker and tell him he’s full of it. Jim is saying that a silver solution, colloidal silver. Now silver is good.

Yeah, because what it does is…when it’s a topical you know Silvadene. I use that on wounds.

Dr. Frank Wefald: But drinking it is wrong.


Dave Alexander: Now listen to Jim Bakker talk with his guest, Dr. Sherrill Sellman on his cable TV show.

Jim Bakker: “This influenza, that is now circling the globe, you’re saying that Silver Solution would be effective?”

Sherrill Sellman: “Well, let’s say it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the coronavirus,” Sellman replied, “but it’s been testing on other strains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours. Totally eliminates it. Kills it. Deactivates it. And then it boosts your immune system, so then you can support the recovery because when you kill the virus then the immune system comes into action to clear it out, so you want a vibrant immune system as well as an ability to deactivate these viruses.”



Dr. Frank Wefald: It’s total bunk. Um, colloidal silver can actually be very bad for you. You know there’s people who are blue. They’re blue because the more colloidal silver you eat/drink, it’s a liquid, it’s deposited in your skin and you turn into a Smurf. Right now, Google “blue people from colloidal silver” or just drinking silver. You will see these people. Now, just remember one thing, if this were true don’t you think there would be products out? Don’t you think that the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the Infectious Disease people would be telling you this and not Jim Bakker?

So just forget about colloidal silver.

We had some great callers on this version of the show, including Jim from Clayton who asked about pre-diabetes. Listen to it here.
