Silver – Nature’s Natural Healer

silver natures natural healer

Silver is an elemental force which brings balance to body and soul. Known as nature’s natural healer and an effective broad spectrum antimicrobial, silver’s healing powers extend far beyond mere antibacterial protection.

Silver has long been recognized as a safe and effective antibiotic since the 1800s, used as both topical and topical treatments to fight infections and promote healing. Colloidal or nanosilver is particularly useful due to its powerful antimicrobial and healing capabilities.


Silver is a rare metal with extraordinary medicinal properties. It possesses antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties to combat bacteria infections, inflammation, dryness and other skin ailments. Furthermore, its cell metabolism enhancing abilities help stimulate collagen production to restore skin elasticity and suppleness and restore it back into place; making silver an invaluable anti-ageing agent against wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Consequently, this substance has long been used as an ingredient in skincare products as an anti-ageing agent to lessen wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

Historic kingdoms utilized creams containing silver residues to treat infections, acne and signs of ageing due to its antimicrobial and wound-healing qualities. Silver also boosts skin elasticity and firmness while lending it a healthy glow – qualities which today find application in eye masks, facial kits and face washes designed with its use as part of cosmetic products intended to hydrate and nourishing.

Silver’s soothing property helps reduce itching and redness caused by different kinds of acne breakouts – blackheads, whiteheads and zits – by inhibiting bacteria and yeast growth; controlling sebum/oil secretions by soothing skin. Furthermore, its soothing nature helps ease symptoms related to chronic conditions like rosacea, eczema and psoriasis while revitalizing damaged tissues.

Silver ions penetrate bacteria cells, binding to oxygen receptors and blocking access to cells containing bacteria. This suffocates them, killing them off. Silver is also an extremely potent antioxidant which combats free radicals to lower oxidative stress that accelerates ageing.

Silver represents the sixth chakra or “third eye”, promoting connectivity and encouraging self-reflection. Being exposed to it inspires spiritual connection while encouraging introspection; cooling its effect helps the mind relax while reflecting back upon oneself; silver’s low toxicities make it non-irritant to skin; unlike colloidal silver which contains ions it absorbs more readily by our bodies compared with true colloidal silver which does not.

Silver has long been revered for its anti-ageing, antibacterial, and wound healing properties. Modern use includes its incorporation into moisturizers, serums, eye masks, facial kits and body soaps for faster wound healing as well as combating infections such as acne as well as signs of ageing like sagging skin or dullness.

Silver is an extremely effective broad spectrum antimicrobial, killing off an array of problematic bacteria, yeasts, fungi and parasites – even viruses! Additionally, silver serves as an effective anti-inflammatory agent; it reduces swelling and pain while speeding up natural healing processes in your body.

Silver has been shown to possess antimicrobial properties through various clinical trials and in vitro studies, including its use in wound dressings to significantly decrease bioburden and the bacterial load on wounds. Silver ions penetrate cell walls of bacteria to disrupt metabolic pathways thereby killing pathogens; additionally it has the power to disrupt membranes of biofilms to disintegrate them completely.

Carboxymethyl cellulose dressings containing silver nanoparticles were shown to effectively decrease biofilm formation and extracellular DNA accumulation in wounds both in vitro and in vivo, as well as promote wound closure without altering local immune responses. Furthermore, these dressings reduced neutrophils and macrophages present in P. aeruginosa or S. aureus colony biofilms for three days in mice receiving treatment with this dressing type.

These results demonstrate the antimicrobial activity of silver is directly tied to its ability to penetrate bacterial cell walls and interfere with metabolic processes within cells. Silver ions also play a significant role in inhibiting cell growth by binding to their lipids and proteins, and binding with oxygen receptors on bacteria cells to keep oxygen away for respiration and metabolism processes. Furthermore, toxic effects from silver are caused by breaking through cell membranes to release toxins outside. Furthermore, silver can interfere with quorum sensing protocols within bacteria communities which leads to loss of coordination among cells within.


Silver is an effective antiseptic that kills germs, bacteria, yeast, fungus and parasites. Additionally, it aids wounds that won’t heal to do so faster while hastening healing in regular wounds. Furthermore, silver acts as an antioxidant by neutralizing free radicals and reducing oxidative stress that leads to premature ageing.

Silver has been used to treat and prevent infections since 4000 BCE [1. Its antimicrobial properties have been well documented throughout medical literature from 17th to 18th century Europe and beyond; Persian kings even preferred drinking only from silver cups as this served to protect their water source more effectively – acting like natural antiseptics!

Since the 1960s, silver has made a comeback into medicine as a topical dressing for wound infections and an ingredient of medical devices to lower infection risks (Table 1). Silver’s oxygen-releasing ions attack bacteria by disabling their ability to breathe or grow, rendering silver an effective disinfectant (and therefore an ideal topical treatment option for treating infections).

Many silver dressings are commercially available with various formulations, concentrations and base substrates. Traditional silver dressings contain metallic silver which breaks down to produce ionic silver ions which target pathogens by altering their membranes and proteins; silver ions also react with the thiol groups found within bacteria to remove electrons from their structures and inhibit cell respiration.

More recently, studies have demonstrated that silver can also help reduce inflammation and enhance wound tissue architecture to hasten healing. As such, silver has made its return into many medical devices designed to prevent infections, such as catheters, endotracheal tubes, vascular prostheses and surgical instruments. Review of published literature indicates that silver can play an essential role in hospital settings to combat infections, and should be taken into consideration alongside existing antimicrobials for this purpose. Data are encouraging, warranting further trials; yet in the interim we must remember other products may better meet specific applications than silver-containing devices and weigh their risks against any possible benefits of using such devices.


Silver is one of the most powerful antimicrobial agents available today. A broad-spectrum antibiotic, it can kill bacterial infections, yeast, fungus and parasites quickly while also aiding chronic wound healing processes that have not healed properly. Plus, as an antioxidant it reduces free radical stress within our bodies which causes premature ageing and damage cells – two conditions caused by premature ageing.

Silver has long been used as an antimicrobial treatment, from treating infections or preventing their transmission to being an integral component of catheters, IV bags and suction equipment to protect patients from infection. Although its popularity declined with antibiotics and refrigeration’s arrival on the scene, silver’s popularity is seeing a revival as an antimicrobial agent; particularly against catheter-related blood stream infections (CR-BSI) and ventilator-associated pneumonias (VAP). Silver’s effectiveness lies primarily in its bactericidal properties which allow it to bind directly with bacteria’s cell walls thus breaking them down and disrupting membranes from them both.

Silver ions also bind to oxygen receptors found on bacterial cell walls, blocking access to vital oxygen for respiration and metabolism – thus killing off any remaining bacteria, making silver an ideal agent for healing wounds.

This study assessed the effectiveness of carboxymethyl cellulose dressings containing novel silver formulations against wound biofilms both in vitro and in vivo, and their impact on host immune responses and healing independent of infection.

All dressings were found to be effective at reducing bacteria within wounds; however, their level of effectiveness depended upon the formulation and concentration of silver used.

These variations may be attributable to how silver is administered on wounds and base substrates of dressings. Silver nitrate and silver sulfadiazine (SSD) both react rapidly with chloride in wound exudate, thus diminishing their ability to kill bacteria by binding with DNA [6-8]. Nanocrystalline silver releases sub-crystalline particles of uncharged metallic silver consisting of less than eight atoms and thus reacts less rapidly with chloride ions [10-13].
