For centuries, gold was viewed as a symbol of wealth – both in ornament form and in jewellery. Today, it is a much-loved accessory you can buy from a jewellery store and wear with a range of garments. While the view of gold may have changed from what it once was, there is one thing that people in both modern times and ancient times believe to be true: that it can be beneficial for your body.
While scientific evidence is limited and often circumstantial, many people swear by gold – both in jewellery and colloidal form to help with common ailments. Whether you believe it to be true or not, you may find the following information to be helpful when buying your next gold pieces from jewellers.
While much of the gold benefits are circumstantial, the connection between gold and arthritis is well-documented and even endorsed by medical professionals. According to research, wearing 24-karat gold directly against your skin can help to alleviate symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
If you have been suffering from an infection, scab, or another painful wound, that is taking longer than you thought it would to heal, then maybe gold can help. When you put gold on your skin, it helps to relax your blood vessels, making blood flow faster and regulating oxygen production. The more oxygen circulating throughout your body, the faster your wounds will heal. Want to see if it works? Check out a few jewellers in search of the perfect gold item.
