You may not be aware of the amazing healing properties of copper. We utilize copper in our pedicure bowls for our nail services. We did this for a very specific reason, although many people have no idea about the immense healing properties of copper. In fact, it has been used throughout history for a variety of different medicinal and healing purposes.
There are many different forms of copper including carbonate, oxide, sulfate, silicate, chloride and others. It has been used for medicinal reasons as far back as ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt. There is even evidence that it was used in the Aztec civilization.
Back in those times, copper was often used to sterilize wounds and drinking
water. There is also literature mentioning copper being used for headaches,
itching and burns. Hippocrates, known as the father of modern medicine, used
copper as a treatment for varicose veins associated with leg ulcers. It seems
that copper was often used in wound healing across many different civilizations.
In the 19th century, copper started being used in association with immune system problems. For instance, copper workers during the cholera epidemic in the 1800s were immune to the disease likely because of their exposure to copper on a regular basis. In the 1880s, copper was reportedly used to treat patients with arthritis. It was also utilized in treating digestive disturbances such as dysentery. Copper treatment was used for tuberculosis until the 1940s.
In the 20th century, copper started being used for anticancer treatment in Germany. In fact, scientists have continued to study the relationship of copper with decreasing tumor growth and metastasis. The role that copper plays with the immune system has been supported, time and time again through history. In 1973, a study was published showing a link between zinc and copper. It showed that copper deficiency, instead of zinc excess, appears to be a contributing factor in the development of heart disease.
As you can clearly see, copper has quite a role in health and well-being. In the 21st century, people have started wearing more copper jewelry directly on the skin to assist in ailments such as arthritis and joint pain. Some researchers believe that copper deficiency results in all kinds of medical issues from varicose veins to gray hair. Many tout it as the fountain of youth, in fact.
