Leishmaniasis is a parasitic infection. It shows up just under the skin as a purple rash and raised welts and boil-like symptoms all over the body. Soldiers in Afghanistan have been suffering from this infection and it has been very difficult to remedy.The army hospital at William Beaumont Army Medical Hospital conducted a study on leishmaniasis, using structured silver liquid and gel. They found that drinking two teaspoons two to three times a day could destroy the parasite. The gel should also be applied two to four times as needed. You can expect to see a benefit over the course of eight weeks.
