Silver and colloidal silver have a long history of medical usage. Let’s find out more about it!

1. Medical Uses of Silver Before the Common Era

Herodotus, the Father of History, accounts that no Persian king, including Cirrus, would drink water that was not transported in silver containers, which kept the water fresh for years. This was particularly important in military conflicts, where fresh water from natural sources was not readily available.

2. Medical Uses of Silver from the Common Era to 1800

Around 1520, Paracelsus used silver internally and also applied silver nitrate as a caustic for the treatment of wounds, a practice that continues today.

During the early pioneer days on the North American continent, when there was no refrigeration and water needed to be transported long distances, it was common practice to drop silver coins into the transport vessel to preserve water.

3. Medical Uses of silver from 1800 to 1900

By 1800, Silver nitrate also was used successfully to treat skin ulcers, compound fractures, and suppurating wounds, well before the time of Lister. Topical application of silver salts became a common therapy. They realized that the antibacterial effects of silver were attributable primarily to the silver ion, and did systematic studies that led to the finding that silver was an effective antimicrobial agent for almost all unicellular organisms (at least 650 species).

4. Medical Uses of silver from 1900 to 1940

Halsted was one of the first American surgeons to advocate the use of silver foil for wound dressings, and silver sutures often were used in surgical incisions to prevent infections. The use of silver for ophthalmologic treatment was extended considerably.

They used a colloidal form of silver in the successful treatment of infected corneal ulcers, interstitial keratitis, blepharitis, and dacrocystitis.

5. Recommended Uses of Silver by the 20th Century

Over time, the well-established indications for the effective use of silver were for water purification, wound dressings for the promotion of healing, the prevention and treatment of infection, dental hygiene (the prevention and correction of pyorrhea, gingivitis, and bad breath), eye conditions (primarily the prevention of ophthalmia neonatorium), and other infectious complications.

Recently, it has experienced a revival in popularity, with some claiming it can replace antibiotics or other medical therapies to treat bacterial, viral and fungal infections. A smaller number of people also claim it can help treat illnesses such as Lyme disease, tuberculosis and even HIV/AIDs. Many people use colloidal silver to cleanse the gut, boost the immune system, and combat inflammation.
