Argentum Nitricum, commonly known as silver, has a direct effect on cellular respiration and benefits the body in many ways. It can treat antibiotic-resistant superbugs but, unlike prescription antibiotics it will not create resistance or immunity in the organisms that are killed by it. Some claim that silver helps prevent all types of flu, including swine flu, as well as the common cold. Argentum Nitricum is helpful in treating many skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema as well. It is very soothing to scrapes and even repairs tissue damage from burns with its anti-inflammatory properties.
