Colloidal Silver Naturally Boosts the Immune System
Use of Silver for health is nothing new for Indians. In Ayurveda, silver has been used in the form of Bhasma for 5000 years. Ayurvedic medicine uses silver in small amounts as a tonic and elixir. In Ayurveda, silver charged water has also been recommended for many ailments.
However Few people are aware of the powerful, infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver and its ability to literally decimate infectious microbes upon contact, it is also known to be an effective immune system booster, when used regularly in small amounts.
What the Experts Say—Giving all the details will be too long and I give here details of what some of the experts have found:
Silver’s ability to aid the immune system and related bodily functions has been well documented for more than 100 years.
“There is evidence that silver is a natural critical component of our immune system and that low tissue levels associated with a dietary deficiency may result in a relatively weakened immune system, making one more prone to infection. (3,4,5)”, ——–Dr. Kent Holtorf, of the Holtorf Medical Group
In other words, people with abnormally low silver levels in their body may be more susceptible to infection and disease.
“While analyzing hair samples and questioning the parties involved, I noticed the correlation between low silver levels and sickness. People who showed low silver levels in their hair analysis were frequently sick. They seemed to have innumerable colds, flu, fevers, and various other sickness. I believe that a silver deficiency may be the key to the improper function of the immune system.”—- Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of the best-selling book, The Body Electric
“Stop Supergerms in Their Tracks with One Powerful Silver Bullet”:— Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D., of the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington State
“In 1909, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that electrically generated silver ions increased white blood cell production.
White blood cells are critical factors in human immunity, aiding the body in the destruction of cancer cells, viruses, bacteria, and other invaders.
In 1939, researchers Hill and Pillsbury made similar findings, demonstrating an increase in white blood cells after silver usage.
In more recent studies conducted in the 1970’s, such as Treatment of Orthopedic Infections with Electrically Generated Silver Ions by Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., it is reported that silver ions give a healthy boost to human blood cell production.
All of this is important, because white blood cells are the defenders of the human body, and red blood cells carry life-giving oxygen to all tissues and organs. So silver apparently aids in immune defence by increasing white blood cell production. And it aids in the support of life itself by boosting oxygen-rich red blood cells production.
In the 1980’s researchers Berger, Marino and Spadaro confirmed previous research demonstrating that electrically generated silver ions boost human blood cell production.
“Silver ions appear to improve the ‘senses’ of white blood cells.”– Dr. John W. Apsley, of Natural Immunogenics,
These findings lead to the obvious conclusion that while low white blood cell counts open the door to serious immune system risks, and low red blood cell counts lead to oxygen starvation of the body’s tissues and organs, electrically generated silver ions may help successfully counter these risks by stimulating both white and red blood cell production.
To sum up, colloidal silver appears to help boost immunity by:
- Stimulating the body’s production of white blood cells.
- Increasing oxygenation to the organs and tissues of the body by increasing red blood cell production.
- Optimally stimulating the body more effectively and clear out foreign invaders, toxins and abnormal cells.
- Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of white blood cells.
Your immune system, of course, is your body’s primary defence against pathogenic microorganisms.
And experts point out that one of the most profound ways colloidal silver supports the immune system is simply by killing pathogens, which in turn gives an over-worked immune system a bit of a rest.
This includes many different types of pathogens including viruses, bacteria, fungi and some of the parasites.
While the mechanisms for all of these immune-related activities are not fully understood, it is nevertheless remarkable that a natural substance like Colloidal silver can have so many potentially beneficial properties, both in stimulating and improving overall immunity.
