Ionic Silver Benefits & Deficiency Symptoms
Historical Use of Silver:
Silver has traditionally been used as a natural alternative to antibiotics. Unlike antibiotics that indiscriminately kill all bacteria, silver is selective. It destroys only the anaerobic bacteria while leaving the aerobic bacteria unharmed. Typically the anaerobic (nitrogen breathing) bacteria are the ones that make us sick. Aerobic (oxygen breathing) bacteria are usually the good guys like the acidophilus that we need in our intestines to help our digestive system function properly.
Water-soluble silver may be used internally to fight illness or infection. Using silver instead of regular antibiotics does have some advantages. By using silver, one may combat invading bacteria (and viruses), without upsetting the balance within the intestine. Regular antibiotics kill all the intestinal bacteria including the good ones, allowing opportunity for yeast organisms to overpopulate the body. That causes problems.
When there is an infected area of the body and water-soluble silver is applied to that area externally as a spray, the infected area turns redder. One could think that the infection is getting worse except that there is no increase in the pain associated with the infection. After the water-soluble silver spray is applied, the red color diminishes and so does the pain. From all appearances it would seem that applying water-soluble silver to the body externally has the ability to pull infection to the surface and kill it.
Silver has been used for thousands of years for health care. It is believed that silver is a systemic disinfectant and works like a secondary immune system.
