8 Proven Healing Properties Of Silver


Due to its direct effect on cellular respiration, colloidal silver has numerous benefits for the body, including a number of medical uses. There are eight proven healing properties that are considered to be supported by medical literature. In this post, we'll be looking at the proven healing properties of silver.

We'll first look at how silver is used against flu/cold and how it helps the body fight against pneumonia. Next, we'll look at silver anti-inflammatory properties. You will then learn about the antimicrobial and antibacterial properties of silver and wrap up the piece with how silver can be used in skin care. By the end of the article, you will have a good understanding of the healing properties of silver.


Fights Symptoms Of Pneumonia

Modern drugs have increasingly become less efficient when it comes to fighting symptoms of pneumonia or bronchitis. Antibiotics are usually administered as the first line of defense, but for viral pneumonia, antibiotics won't be helpful. The unique quality of colloidal silver is the fact that it might be helpful no matter the pathogen, as research suggests it has both antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Colloidal silver is great at helping the body fight against pneumonia and bronchitis when it's ingested internally. But what's an even more effective way of utilizing it? Well, simply breathe it in your lungs. This method delivers silver directly onto the germs in the lungs, which could cause pneumonia or bronchitis. It's similar to using respiratory support, and it works speedily enough, helping clear things up in a couple of days. Using a nebulizer is perhaps the most effective way to get a colloidal silver supplement into your lungs. The recommended dosage is one teaspoon taken about three times a day for ten to fifteen minutes.


Helps With The Common Cold And Flu

Some claim that silver is helpful with all forms of flu, including swine flu and the common cold. Several studies have been conducted to test this clinically. For instance, in 2011, the NIH took 100 children under 12 years of age dealing with the common cold and nasal congestion and divided them into two groups. The first group received treatment with a beta-glucan and colloidal silver solution, while the second group was treated with a saline solution.

While both groups saw some benefits from the treatment, 90% of the participants in the colloidal silver group made a full recovery. A study published in the Journal of Virological Methods also demonstrated that silver nanoparticles feature anti-H1N1 influenza A virus activities, especially during the early stages of infection.


Controls Sinus Infections

Colloidal silver is also widely used in controlling sinus infections and can be beneficial when used as a nasal spray. This is according to a 2014 study published in the International Forum for Allergies and Rhinology. A 2018 study published in Frontiers in Microbiology found that colloidal silver rinses are safe and effective for patients dealing with chronic sinusitis when used twice daily for ten days. Twenty-two patients completed the study, and they were given either nasal rinses of colloidal silver two times a day or oral antibiotics with saline rinses two times a day.

The results showed that both treatment methods produced similar improvements in the symptoms of sinusitis, and using colloidal silver this way for ten days was established as safe to use. You can buy good quality and even pure quality colloidal silver nasal spray products or add several drops of colloidal silver (in liquid form) to a "neti pot." If you want to have it applied directly into the nasal cavity, you just need to tilt your head backward and allow it to drain down the throat.

It's also important to point out that recent research highlights that hidden infections by pathogens could be the main cause of respiratory inflammation associated with asthma and common allergies. For example, colloidal silver can effectively destroy infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which could be the reason why patients who have airborne allergies usually see similar dramatic relief when they use colloidal silver treatments.


Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Research also demonstrates that colloidal silver is an effective anti-inflammatory remedy. Researchers at the NIH (National Institutes of Health) studied the effects of inflammation following a colloidal silver treatment. They discovered that inflamed pig skins treated with silver saw them return to near normal conditions after 72 hours, while pig treatment groups whose skins weren't treated with silver remained inflamed.

Studies are also starting to confirm what many people have already known anecdotally for years - colloidal silver can help reduce swelling, speed healing, and boost the recovery of cells. More studies on humans are required to understand the true potential of colloidal silver when it comes to treating inflammation; however, what they have already seen seems promising.
