Is Silver a cure for Coronavirus?

Posted by

There is no medical cure for coronavirus and all viral infections, which is why people are turning to nature for solutions. One of the known natural antivirus agents is Silver, a traditional remedy whose antiseptic properties were used in ancient Egypt, the Middle East and India by royal households to keep water and other fluids fresh and to treat various infections. Until its ban in the 1930s, it was recognised and used as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial by clinicians to treat bacterial, parasitical, fungal and viral infections. But is Silver a cure for Coronavirus as televangelists in the US and several news outlets claim?

Before antibiotics were invented, Silver was used until there was pressure to remove it from the market in the 20th Century because Silver is natural and Pharmaceutical Companies were unable to patent it. Now companies are permitted to use it in medical instruments and wound dressings to kill pathogens. Consumers should ask themselves why it was banned and is now being widely used in medical products. Research into its efficacy as an antimicrobial agent is ongoing and it is now known to kill over 650 known pathogens within 72 hours.

It is also used to treat and prevent flu and the common cold. A study on children up to 12 years old, with nasal congestion and the common cold, treated half of them with a solution of Silver and beta glucan and the other half with saline solution. Both groups benefited, but 90% of the Silver group completely recovered.

There have been many other studies. Still, current available research evidence only reveals the surface of the potential benefits (the tip of the iceberg!) More research is required.

The final Scoop.

The Coronavirus is a new phenomenon and there is no research on potential cures. Silver may be a lifeline or just a gimmick – only time will tell. Clearly, there is a lot of positive information about Silver, which, in the absence of a mainstream solution, is not something to be dismissed outright.
