Copper deficiency caused by silver ingestion
Type of Spiritual Experience
One is entitled to ask why anyone would chronically ingest silver, but silver leaf is used as a decoration on Indian meals and is thought by some to be 'good for you'. It isn't.
A description of the experience
Ann Clin Biochem. 2012 May;49(Pt 3):300-1. doi: 10.1258/acb.2011.011199. Epub 2012 Feb 28. Colloidal silver ingestion with copper and caeruloplasmin deficiency. Stepien KM, Taylor A. Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, Hucknall Road, NG5 1PB Nottingham, UK.
The copper concentration in serum can be affected by the presence of other trace elements such as silver. Low serum copper may result in decreased caeruloplasmin synthesis. We report the case of a 59-year-old woman, who was admitted to hospital with acute psychosis and who had been ingesting chronically, colloidal silver.
