Colloidal Silver and HIV Infection

With science developing by leaps and bounds, we have done great for us, by coming up with a number of products. However, when it comes to HIV, we still do not have much significant stuff in our hand. As it is, we still do not even have a cure for HIV; leave alone a cure for AIDS.

We are still left with prevention as the only hope and only option to deal with HIV/AIDS. However, there has been rapid advancement in this regard. With the development of the antiretroviral drug therapy and the rapid advancement in this field, we are still left with some hope.

Apart from focusing solely on the antiretroviral drug therapy a number of alternate medicinal courses have also come up, giving an HIV infected person a lot of hope. Many of these medicines focus on the natural way of dealing with the disease. Colloidal silver is an important addition to the list of alternate medicines.

Colloidal silver is a liquid solution consisting of microscopic silver particles, which are electrically charged in distilled water. As it is, colloidal silver has not reportedly resulted in any side effects, mainly due to the fact, that, it does not have any harmful chemicals. Moreover, it is generally prepared through non-chemical method. Due to this reason, Colloidal silver is becoming increasingly popular.

Colloidal silver has been found to be quite effective in enhancing the immune system of the body. They have also been found to have anti viral and antibacterial properties. As it is, silver is known to be, highly toxic to most microbial cells and has long been used as an antimicrobial agent, for the treatment of a number of diseases.

Silver and its various compounds, such as silver sulfadiazine, have been used in many medicines as antimicrobial agents. Researches state, that colloidal silver acts as antimicrobial agent mainly through three ways. Firstly, it attaches itself to the virus and absorbs the surrounding oxygen, as a result of which, the microbe is unable to breathe and dies quickly. Secondly it hinders the enzyme production capacity of the microbe, which is very essential for its survival. Thirdly, it also acts as an inhibitor in the duplication process, which stops the microbe from spreading further.

Due to these properties, colloidal silver is being increasingly hailed as one of our best bets as far as treatment for HIV infection is concerned. Colloidal silver can be used in a number of ways. It can be taken both orally, as well as by way of intravenous injections. However, it is required to be taken in regulated dose and hence you should consult your physician before you start with colloidal silver.
