Can silver prevent blood clots?

June 4, 2009 by  

Can silver prevent blood clots?Silver nanoparticles injected into the bloodstream may protect against blood clots in coronary artery disease, heart attack and stroke, according to new research.

The news was reported by the American Chemical Society which said laboratory experiments indicate small amounts of the nanosilver injected intravenously reduce the ability of platelets to clump together – which forms the basis of life-threatening clots – by as much as 40 percent.

It also said the procedure shows no apparent harmful side effects.

Writing in the journal ACS Nano the researchers stated, "Nanosilver appears to possess dual significant properties critically helpful to the health of mankind – antibacterial and antiplatelet – which together can have unique utilities, for example in coronary stents."

If confirmed, the results may represent a breakthrough in the treatment and prevention of blood clots, giving patients a natural alternative to aspirin and anticoagulant drugs, some of which have caused serious side effects such as bleeding.

Among other natural blood-thinning substances are foods and herbs high in salicylates, including dried fruits and nuts as well as spices such as curry powder, ginger, thyme, cinnamon, oregano, licorice and peppermint, according to the Connective Tissue Disorder website.

The source adds that in Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medicine many of these spices are known as "warming spices" as they tend to increase blood circulation, which in turn speeds up the metabolism and makes a person feel warmer.

    The use of silver for health issues is new in America. If it can be proven that nano silver works, then it should be used. Silver hasn’t been ‘approved’ here because the AMA/FDA cabal sees it as stiff competition for ea$y money. Their mantra demands that only a ‘scientific priest’ can say what is ‘safe.’ That means ‘medical priests’ can OK or deny access to things that could help. This bu$ine$$ arrangement guarantees EA$Y money for MDs and drug firms. I’ll rely on caring people who value RESULTS.
    To rely on AMA/FDA non-science is bad for your health, it is incredibly expensive, and only Hannibal Lecter could approve of its disgusting, murderous track record.

      I wonder wether there is a connection between the new nanosilver and the use of
      Colloidal silver which is not given by injection?
      If the colloidal silver which is given by swallowing, it has also the possibility of
      enterring the blood stream. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

        Check with Bob Livingston, Jenny. As I understand it, nano silver is an improvement over the ‘older’ colloidal silver. Contrary to what our information control specialists say, it might help. Our ‘medical scientists’ demand that we see them as infallible. Often, they are anything BUT scientific (forget infallible). There is a putrid money-bond that perpetuates mindless greed/stupidity/control in America. It abets illness, wastes money and is intended to keep people dumbed-down and on their knees (in adoring worship). What matters is to find and use things that WORK.

        I believe it does go into the bloodstream. I take a dropper full every morning after my H2O2 dose, holding it under my tongue for about 30 seconds and then swallowing. Haven’t had a sore throat or cold since I started using it.

    Silver has been used for millenia as has copper. Coloidal Silver (nano silver; silver protein) will kill virus. Strep, staph, sinus infection etc. I had a bad cut, very deep. Added silvedane(mainly for burns with 1% silver) and 400ppm silver reduced to 150ppm with distilled water, in a spray bottle and had no in fection. Since it happened out of town and at a customer location I had no stiotches. My doctor a week later saw the clean open wound, asked what was used and approved. He never even offered a prescription for antibiotics. He said do what you have been doing and soak it in very warm epsom salt water to keep clean and moist. In three more weeks it was healed as good as new.
    Silver can help a lot of people. It is a sin that the non patentable cure is downgraded by those who push pharmecuticals.

    Copper and silver ionizers keep swimming pools clean without chlorine. There is much more.

    Hope investigation can help more people find relief from illness and infection.

    Another constructive reason to push this concept is to reduce the use of – and eventually eliminate – stents. They have a nasty habit of clogging (imagine that). Apparently, some MDs are having second thoughts about the value of stents in ‘helping’ with the problem. Relying on simple injections would reduce the asinine cost of coronary issues, and resolve an issue that has saddled American patients with $calpel-happy heart surgeons.

    If this is true that would be wonderful because I watched my father die from a stroke for ten (10) years and it was a living hell for the entire family especially for my mother.

    Lots more good info on nanosilver at, including new information on the EPA’s campaign to ban nanosilver.
