In the realm of alternative and natural remedies, ionic silver has emerged as a fascinating subject of study due to its potential healing properties. Researchers at Rice University have contributed significantly to our understanding of how ionic silver assists with healing, shedding light on its antimicrobial capabilities and potential applications in wound care, infection control, and more. Let's delve into the findings of Rice University's research and explore how ionic silver is making waves in the field of healing.

Unveiling the Research:

Rice University's research has centred on uncovering the mechanisms through which ionic silver exerts its healing effects. The study's foundation lies in the fact that silver has been known for centuries to possess antimicrobial properties. These properties are attributed to silver ions, where an atom or group of atoms carries a positive or negative electric charge, as a result of having lost or gained one or more electrons.

The researchers at Rice University aimed to elucidate how these silver ions interact with microorganisms to facilitate healing.

How Does Our Ionic Silver Work?

Healthwest Pure Ionic Silver is deliberately designed to entirely overcome the inherent limitations of colloidal silver, and provide a pure Silver Ion solution completely free of metal.

It has a built-in delivery mechanism to shield it from chloride and other salts in the body, enabling it to be delivered intact to where it is needed.

Microbes, like all living organisms, rely on an electrical or nervous system to sustain life, and this is how they live, communicate and breed.

Charged silver ions disable this internal electrical system and the microbe ceases to function and simply collapses and dies. Because of the unique way that silver ions work there can be no resistance either inherited or developed.

Applications in Healing:

The insights gained from Rice University's research have significant implications for healing and wellness:

1. Wound Healing:

The antimicrobial properties of ionic silver are particularly promising for wound care. The research suggests that incorporating silver ions into wound dressings could prevent infections and enhance the natural healing process. By reducing the microbial load around the wound, the body's healing mechanisms can work more effectively.

2. Infection Control:

The research also highlights the potential of ionic silver in infection control. Whether in topical creams, wound dressings, or medical equipment coatings, silver ions' ability to target a broad spectrum of microorganisms could play a pivotal role in preventing and treating infections.

3. Emerging Treatments:

The antimicrobial potential of ionic silver is not limited to topical applications. Rice University's research opens the door to exploring inhalation and ingestion of properly prepared ionic silver solutions as potential treatments for respiratory infections and gastrointestinal issues caused by harmful microbes.
