Did you know that over 5000 years ago, alchemists in Alexandria made a liquid gold medicine that they believed could help the human body fight diseases and stay young?
Indeed, gold isn’t just a precious addition to your jewellery collection; it can even benefit your health.
Improves blood circulation:
Gold is known to be a ‘heart-friendly’ metal which improves blood circulation in your body and therefore, makes sure that every part of your body gets plenty of oxygen.Hence, in the old days, pregnant women were advised to wear a gold ornament around their abdomen to improve circulation of blood and other bodily fluids in both child and mother.
Healing the wound and control infections:
It is believed that if you put pure (24-karat) goldon an infected or sore area, it can help to heal the wound and control infection.
Regulates body temperature:
Wearing gold helps to maintain your body temperature and restores it in case of chills, hot flashes, and night sweats.
Controls the growth of cancer:
Gold can help the body control the growth of cancerous cells. Hence, it is being used as an alternative medicine for treating different types of cancers such as prostate and ovarian cancer. Gold also helps in the early detection of cancer. CytImmune, a US-based biopharmaceutical company, has developed a method of delivering anti-cancer drugs directly using gold nanoparticles. Another company, Nanospectra, has created “nanoshells” which destroy cancer cells with heat. A nanoshell, or rather a nanoshell plasmon, is a type of spherical nanoparticle consisting of a dielectric core which is covered by a thin metallic shell (usually gold).
Did you know that even Cleopatra, erstwhile Queen of Egypt, is said to have slept wearing a gold mask every night? Gold provides warm and soothing vibrations to the skin and therefore, helps your body regenerate cells. Gold is used in many skincare and beauty products. It is also used to treat various skin problems such as eczema, fungal infections, skin rash, wounds, skin burns etc.
