A symbol of wealth and health for millennia, silver is the shiny object of legends and lore, with mythical powers and medical prowess that defy its position as playing second fiddle to gold in terms of price and prestige. Discover what historians, experts, medical professionals and enthusiasts have known and collected for more than 4,000 years BC to celebrate silver for its beauty, healing powers and good fortunes.
Silver has made history for millennia, proving its mettle as one of the earth’s most precious metals – and purported to be the very first antibiotic, providing a silver lining for health and well-being. No other metal shares the mystique and muster of silver, and throughout the centuries has shaped fortunes and safeguarded health since the beginning of time. Its name alone conjures up riches both alluring and life altering.
The Story of Silver
The story of silver began when it was first mined from the Earth in Turkey and Greece, where it was molded, coined and traded as currency. Its journey as a metal of distinction continues in the medical studies of Hippocrates, the father of medicine; the written recordings of Herodotus, the father of history; in Biblical references and in folklore wisdom far and wide. Looking back at every major early civilization, beliefs in silver’s mystical and metaphysical properties are woven into the threads of religion, rituals and daily life. Egyptian, Tibetan, Roman, Aztec, Native American and many other cultures cherished, worshiped and searched for silver because of its healing and protective properties.
Silver made its way into the coffers and tables of blue bloods and aristocrats in Europe and the new world, keeping them safe from tainted water and food. It surfaces in battlefields and hospitals in the 1800s, where surgeons dressed wounds with silver backed instruments and coverings to fend off infectious invaders. It emerged throughout time as nature’s precious anti-microbial healing hero, renowned for its ability to fend off bacterial foes and defend the body from illnesses – and, in those days, mythical creatures, too.
Silver for Health & Wellness
In addition to being prized by many for its health-giving benefits, silver is most commonly associated with wealth. The notion of the silver spoon has deep aristocratic roots, alluding to the fact that someone who is “born with a silver spoon in her or his mouth” has riches and accompanying privileges that many others don’t. History tells us that European nobility as far back as the Middle Ages used tableware crafted from silver because of its anti-microbial properties.
Because silver is self-sanitizing in nature, silver cutlery was deemed the best way to prevent bacteria, germs and illnesses from spreading to a person internally. As silver was also valuable and expensive, only the well-to-do could afford to own it, thus the privileged connotation of the silver spoon saying, “born with a silver spoon.” To give their babies a healthier start in life, wealthy families would gift them with a shiny silver spoon that was ever-clean and ever-vigilant in preventing bacteria and germs from harming their little ones, a pricey silver shield less fortunate families made do without.
If you think the proverbial silver bullet is a wishful fantasy, think again. Since the beginning of time, silver has proved its worth in more ways than one and it is starring in its comeback today in the health and wellness sector.
