The question of whether or not silver can actually help to improve your sleep environment, has been one of much debate in regard to both energetic medicine, as well as science. This is largely in part to the growing interest in silver and the health benefits that it is able to provide you with.
It is because of these health benefits that silver provides, that there are now European bedding and mattress manufacturers that are taking advantage of silver’s growing popularity. They are doing so by trying to create a new trend that includes weaving some very fine silver threads into bedding materials, some of which includes mattress covers, blankets, and bed linens as well. On top of that, they are also experimenting with silver inside of mattresses as well. They are doing this by simply putting small sized silver particles right inside of the foam that is used to make the mattress. Since these manufacturers have started to experiment with silver in bedding related items, there have been alarm bells that have been going off amount geobiologists, health practitioners, and researches, who are in the field of bio-informative medicine and energy.
The manufacturers of these bedding and mattresses are able to justify using silver within their products as it functions in a way that helps prevent bacteria, as silver is a natural antibacterial. The entire goal of incorporating silver into the bedding material is to create as unideal of a living condition as possible for any dust mites that can potentially take up residence within your mattress, bed coverings and pillows. The silver being used is portrayed as one of the best ‘natural antibiotics’, meaning that it is going to kill any bacteria that may come into contact with your bedding or mattress. Since something like this has never been done before, there is actually massive potential when it comes to product development and marketing, as well as a lot of money that will be made.
While there may be some truth in the claims that these manufacturing companies are making, there are also some drawbacks as well. You see, along with adding silver into all of your bedding and mattresses, there is also the risk of disease and therapy resistance as well, if you are going to be laying on these materials continuously and will be surrounded by them for 8-10 hours out of the day.
The Harsh Reality About Using Silver in Mattresses and Bedding
When it comes down to it, the truth is that all of the antibacterial properties from silver that is contained within bedding and mattresses is actually going to become a health burden to you. What makes things even worse, is that the marketing that is used only portrays everything in such a positive light. But in all reality, there is actually a detrimental effect that has no equal. Since all of your body’s cells contain what is considered to be ‘good’ bacteria, it is a no-brainer to say that you are going to need all of these in order to maintain your health. Now you will need to keep in mind that there is actually a very natural symbiotic relationship when it comes to your body and good bacteria.
For example, there are a countless number of bacteria that protect your skin, which is also your body’s very first layer of defense against everything. On top of that, you have billions of bacteria that are currently living within your gut, which without them, you would have a very difficult time trying to stay alive.
When it comes to silver, it is going to have a very damaging effect on all of the bacteria that are in your body’s cells. This is because silver is not able to distinguish which bacteria is good, and which bacteria is bad. According to silver, bacteria is just that, bacteria. When you take away the silver threads and particles that are being used in bedding and mattresses, you will then be able to stop any type of disruption to the bacteria that is protecting your skin.
Nanoparticles That Have Toxic Effects
When it comes to silver, the nanoparticles are going to be an entirely different problem than its antibacterial abilities. Whenever you are going to have any type of direct contact between silver and your skin, there are going to be some particles that you will inhale, which can potentially destroy all of your intestinal flora. While this sounds like it may be far-fetched, it has actually been confirmed by a doctor in Vienna who was curious about a group of friends who had their intestinal flora ruined. As it turns out, all of the friends had placed an order for mattresses that had been made using silver while at a party together several years earlier. Once they all had received their silver infused mattresses, they had all since been using them whenever they went to sleep. So, you may be wondering how exactly all of this works?
When you sleep, you actually move around a significant amount. Now factor that in with the fact that when you sleep on your mattress, you are probably going to be getting anywhere between 6-8 hours at any given time. Over the first few years of sleeping with silver infused bedding and mattresses, not much is going to happen. But when you fast forward several years, your mattress and bedding will begin to experience material fatigue, meaning that the products will start to breakdown. All of your movements are going to have an abrasive effect, which will start to damage all of the silver threads that are in your mattress and sheets. Once these silver threads become damaged, you will have very small particles of silver, also known as silver nanoparticles, that will be released into the air. These silver nanoparticles will be transported around your room through the air current, eventually finding themselves inside your body through your airways, meaning that they will now be in your lungs, stomach, and eventually, your intestines.
Once these silver nanoparticles have made it into your respiratory system and eventually your blood stream, they will be able to cross your blood brain barrier, allowing them to reach your brain cells and other regions of your body that they should not be able to reach (for example your intestines and stomach). These particles, which are loaded with all of silver’s antibacterial properties, will have a destroying effect on these bacteria, damaging tissues and cells alike. On top of that, they will also destroy your intestinal bacteria and skin bacteria, which you require in order to maintain your health. Essentially, this all means that silver is very similar to amalgam, aluminum (which can be found in most roll-on deodorants and deodorant sprays), and lead, as all of these substances are going to have some type of toxic effect on you.
Silver Shielding Against What is Known as Electronic Pollution
Some of the manufacturers for these silver infused mattresses and bedding sets will even advertise statements such as ‘silver helps to protect you against electronic pollution problems.’ If you see any claims like this being made, you need to know that they are completely false. Silver, which is a metal, actually functions similar to that of an antenna and is also a very effective conductor of electricity. These bedding materials that contain silver in them, are going to propagate a low frequency, or LF, radiation from any type of home wiring and even HF radiation (which comes from things such as phone towers, television stations, radio, mobile phones, radar, etc.) throughout your entire bed. All of this excess radiation is going to be attracted to the silver in your mattress and bedding just like a giant antenna, and still worse, it will all be reflected back out again. What all of this means, is that the person who is sleeping on the mattress and bedding that has been infused with silver, is actually going to be sleeping on a bed that bathes them in radiation.
No matter who you are, all of this radiation can affect you when you are exposed to it over a longer period of time. Whether you believe that electrosmog is real or not, it’s present everywhere and can become very harmful in situations that will attract or reflect it, as the silver used in bedding and mattresses will do. Essentially, when you sleep on a mattress or use bedding that has silver infused into it, you are going to be putting yourself into a cloud of radiation. What this means, is that when manufacturers claim that silver bedding materials will help to eliminate any type of electronic pollution, is going to simply be untrue! In fact, the exact opposite is actually going to be what is really going on.
When it comes to using a mattress or bedding that has silver infused with it, it will be best for your health to only use if for a short period of time, or not use it at all. A regular mattress and bedding set will be much better for you.
