Minerals are an important component of our diets, and they are often overlooked. Some essential minerals, like iron, magnesium, and calcium, are often mentioned in the media. Others, such as colloidal silver, boron, and monatomic gold, are less well known as health and wellness supplements. Monatomic gold, in particular, has been getting a great deal of attention lately. But what is monatomic gold and does it really live up to the hype?

Healing with Gold

Society has also promoted the healing powers of gold for centuries. In medieval Europe, gold was believed to soothe an upset stomach, ease melancholy, and even cure baldness. Physicians in China applied the substance to the skin to treat illnesses such as smallpox and measles. Even Cleopatra was said to sleep with a 24 karat gold face mask each night to maintain her youthful appearance. It was almost thought to be an elixir of life in ancient times

In the early 1900s, doctors began to treat certain conditions, most commonly rheumatoid arthritis, using two medications with colloidal gold, Auranofin and gold sodium thiomalate (GST). GST is typically more effective than Auranofin, but it requires intramuscular injection, while Auranofin can be taken orally. Unfortunately, both medications come with a host of side effects, including:
  • Bone marrow diseases
  • Diarrhea
  • Increased pain
  • Kidney damage
  • Liver toxicity
  • Lung damage
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Rashes
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Thinning hair
  • Weakness or fainting

These medications were once a first-line defense against rheumatoid arthritis. Still, due to the severity of the possible side effects and the development of better drugs, they have been mostly discontinued since the 1990s. Recent studies, however, have indicated that the nanoparticles in colloidal gold can pass through the brain-blood barrier. Though no longer regularly recommended for arthritis, the National Cancer Institute is in the process of testing the efficacy of colloidal gold as a way to fight solid tumors. Early indications show that irradiated gold seeds are an especially potent weapon in the fight against prostate cancer, with fewer side effects.

Monatomic Gold

Monatomic gold first came into the public eye as a health treatment in the 1990s. David Hudson claimed to have discovered the substance when he was tending his land. He also coined the acronym ORME, short for Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements. Proponents of monatomic gold claim that it is the same substance as the food of the gods or manna from the bible. It is credited with a variety of healing, medicinal, and spiritual properties, including:

  • Boosting immunities
  • Controlling food cravings
  • Correcting the structure of DNA
  • Heightening psychic abilities
  • Improving mental clarity
  • Increasing hormone production
  • Intensifying red blood cell production
  • Increasing semen production
  • Reinvigorating the body
  • Reversing aging
  • Strengthening the aura

They credit these remarkable properties to gold’s unique thermal and electrical properties, which are said to improve the functioning of the human nervous and circulatory systems.

In Conclusion

In its natural state, gold passes through the human digestive system unchanged. Gold has a history in medicine as an effective anti-inflammatory elixir.
