Just watch out for argyria
...I had a friend who sweared by it...he said that it was like a purifier and that it removed toxins..he also said the first time he took it he felt as though he got a fever and that he was going to die (expressively, that is).
These are the three people I rely on for all my medical knowledge, and they all say that colloidal silver is, for all practical purposes, worthless.
You are entitled to your opinion however limited a scope it may be. A whole 3 people is not the embodiment of an entire picture.
What Health Professionals Say About Silver and Colloidal Silver
"What we have actually done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, which had been known for centuries… when antibiotics were discovered, clinical uses for silver as an antibiotic were discarded" concludes Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. Extensive research into the curative properties of silver has been conducted for many years at the Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse University, Syracuse, N.Y. under the direction of above mentioned Dr. Becker. The experiments conclude that silver works on a wide range of bacteria, without any known side-effects or damage to the cells of the body. Silver was doing something more than killing disease-causing organisms. It was also causing major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Dr. Becker concludes that the presence of the silver ion may help to regenerate tissue, and help eliminate any other diseased or abnormal condition.
Dr. Henry Crooks (Use of Colloids in Health-Disease) found that silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. From his bacteriological experiments with silver he concluded, "I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes."
Dr. Bjorn Nordenstrom, of the Larolinska Institute, Sweden, has successfully used silver as a component in his cancer treatments for many years.
Dr. Leonard Keene Hirschberg, A. M., M. D. (John Hopkins) states, "Speaking generally, the colloidal metals are especially remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states."
Dr. Richard L. Davies, executive director of the Silver Institute, which monitors silver technology in 37 countries, reports: "In four years we've described 87 important new medical uses for silver. We're just beginning to see to what extent silver can relieve suffering."
