As the coronavirus spreads, many are concerned about the health of themselves, family, and friends. As with most viral infections, there is no treatment.  Your best protection lies in keeping your health optimized. Over the coming weeks I will be sending out updates to keep all my patients up to date on how to keep you and your family safe with a functional medicine perspective.

Inhibitory effects of silver nanoparticles on H1N1 influenza A virus in vitro.

This study demonstrates that silver nanoparticles have anti-H1N1 influenza A virus activities. The inhibitory effects of silver nanoparticles on influenza A virus may be a novel clinical strategy for the prevention of influenza virus infection during the early dissemination stage of the virus.

A laboratory test was conducted in 2012 by Larry C. Ford, M.D. from the UCLA School of Medicine2 to test just how well colloidal silver actually works. He discovered that the silver had the ability to kill over 650 bacteria, fungi, parasites, and molds. The silver was able to suffocate the pathogen within six minutes of contacting it.

In addition to being an antibacterial, colloidal silver is also an antiviral. It has been shown to reduce the HIV viral load and led to significant improvement in AIDS patients.3 Similar to how it reacts to bacteria, colloidal silver suffocates viruses like herpes, pneumonia, and warts. It also combats infections and problems on the skin, not just ones within the body. Because colloidal silver is an anti-fungal, it can help treat ringworm and Athlete’s foot which are both caused by fungi on the skin.

I want to mention at this point that for some reason silver is not well liked by the mainstream and many articles are refuting any benefits of silver and even stating that it is dangerous. This information is not meant to make any claims regarding silver and the coronavirus in particular.

There are many things we can do to help our immune system and silver is a good one. I have personally used it with myself and my family as well as recommended it to numerous patients over the years with great results.

The form of silver I believe is the safest and most effective is silver hydrosol.
