Colloidal silver has been widely known to be an effective alternative treatment method for bacterial infections; its antibacterial properties help a person boost or help their immune system to cope with severe or chronic diseases. Colloidal silver is sold as distilled water that has microscopic silver nano particles in it.
Back in the year 1990, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City studied the effects and the benefits of small currents of electricity applied directly to the blood, normally through electrodes placed in one artery. The research shows that majority of the diseases that are caused by viruses, bacteria, microbes, germs, pathogens, and parasites can be treated and controlled through the electrification of a patient's blood. In fact, their research shows that if a patient's blood stream receives a current of 50 to 100 microamperes all the viruses and bacteria are eliminated. Once they are eliminated, the bacteria are removed from the blood stream through the kidneys, liver, and lymph. It is thought that colloidal silver is similarly effective in controlling infection in the body.
In the case of AIDS and HIV treatment, colloidal silver attacks the virus and prevents them from affecting healthy body cells and especially the CD4 T helper cells in the immune system. Opportunistic infection is the major problem encountered by AIDS/HIV patients who develop an impaired immune system; It is reported that by using colloidal silver, patients can prevent or reduce infection complications and boost their immune system. Colloidal silver is reported as being very effective in boosting a person's immune system and thus helping them prevent or control the development of AIDS in the body or at the very least maintain a patient's health condition.
Aside from AIDS/HIV, colloidal silver is also effective in treating and preventing other maladies. Studies have shown that colloidal silver's antibacterial properties are effective in treating wounds and skin burns. In fact, doctors in 2007 used silver sulfadiazine (topically applied and similar in action to colloidal silver) to treat skin burns. Research shows that colloidal silver is an effective treatment method for skin wounds and burns as its antibacterial properties are effective in killing infections as well as speed up healing and preventing further infections.
In fact, it is so effective that some wound dressings have embedded colloidal silver in them which helps in controlling infection in the wounds. During the manufacturing of the bandage, nano-crystalline particles of silver or colloidal silver are incorporated into the bandage making it more effective in preventing infections as well as speeding up the healing process of the skin. Colloidal silver is also known to be used in medical appliances such as catheters; this helps in preventing and controlling urinary tract infections which can occur when a patient uses a catheter. Colloidal silver is often used to treat ear, staph and intestinal infections; as well as, leukemia, conjunctivitis and other kinds of diseases.
Because of its reported effectiveness against aids, colloidal silver has the potential to be one of science's most important discoveries. The benefits of colloidal silver seem to be overwhelming which is why a lot of health stores and websites are selling them as health supplements. If you are interested in colloidal silver and its reported benefits, consult your doctor about it.
