Gold's power against autoimmune diseases defined


Gold compounds have been used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases for more than 75 years, but until now, how the metals work has been a mystery. Harvard Medical School researchers report in the Feb. 27 issue of Nature Chemical Biology that special forms of gold, platinum, and other classes of medicinal metals work by stripping bacteria and virus particles from the grasp of a key immune system protein.



Silver and Gold Uses



There is a large volume of information available to the seeker on the internet. Honest unbiased research can be found. It is my sincerest intention to bring to you that information or show you where to find it. 


This partial list compiles every ailment we have found in text and internet searching on the uses of Colloidal SIlver and/or Gold. It will require a complete change in scientific funding to study them all. Until that funding becomes available though we can only guess at the validity of all the claims. Useful scientific evidence has been produced just not enough. I have added as many useful references as possible at the end of this article and will continue to update more over time.



A Brief History of Colloidal Gold

Gold, long used for medicinal purposes,   

has an even greater potentially beneficial effect.  In its colloidal form, for example, it has been used to treat arthritis, skin ulcers, burns, dipsomania, and various types of punctures.  It allegedly improves blood circulation, digestion, weakens the desire for alcohol (leading to a lessening of cravings), and can promote renewed vitality and longevity.  There is also the possibility it can be beneficial for rejuvenating glands, nerves, sluggish organs (including the brain and heart), and can even be used to treat unstable mental and emotional states, ranging from depression, melancholy, fear, anguish, frustration, sorrow, all the way to suicidal tendencies.   




Clinical Applications of Gold and Silver Nanocolloids

by Guy E. Abraham, MD


Three noble metals, also called precious metals, are currently used in medicine: gold, silver, and platinum. None of these metals are considered essential, and there are no daily requirements. 

  Nanocolloids are the metallic form of these metals finely divided with particle sizes below 10 nanometers (nm). One nanometer is one billionth of a meter. 
As a general rule, the ionic forms of these metals display more toxic reactions than the metallic form of these metals. The metallic form acquires new physical, chemical, and physiological properties when finely divided with particle sizes in the low nanometer range. Only the ionic, most toxic forms of these noble metals are used for medicinal purposes. Platinum is by far the most toxic1 and vide infra and is currently used in patients with ovarian and breast cancer.2 and vide infra Metallic (non-ionic) colloidal gold and silver have more potential clinical applications and are much safer than platinum.
