, I wouldn't have seen this otherwise
My two cents - I've used colloidal silver many times and in general it's been helpful in dealing with bacterial infections and possibly some viruses. I say possibly some viruses because I can't always tell what's going on with me - I know when I get sick (which is very often) but whether it's bacterial or viral or a combination of both, I'm never quite sure.
For me it's been important to take enough of the colloidal silver for it to be effective. It comes in all different strengths and I think in general the suggested doses and strengths are too low. Unfortunately it's expensive, and I think unduly so.
I know there's a lot of hype about argyria - skin turning blue from taking too much, but this is extremely rare and you'd have to take a high dose of improperly made colloidal silver for a long time for this to occur.
I remember one strep infection several years ago, I'd had a couple of courses of ABX but it kept recurring. Finally I turned to colloidal silver. I forget how long I had to take it, maybe a week? But the strep finally went away. It did cause a noticeable herx reaction - I got quite tired, temporarily, but afterwards was fine.
It is confusing to figure out the best type - there's ionic and nano particles as @YippeeKi YOW !!
noted, and I just usually end up buying the highest concentration I can get for the best price.
