Your experiences using Colloidal Silver?
I tried it internally for 30 days and externally on scalp folliculitis for about 60 days and did not notice any benefits.sgtbam I have taken colloidal too. I don't take it on an every day basis and only use it for different things such stomach flu. Truth be told that is why I don't take it often, but it does work. Why do you and your wife take it every day?
Thanks, Red Lotus. Looks like subsequent posters didn't even read your very interesting and informative post.Google "Silver Nanoparticles" instead of colloidal silver and you'll find better information and less woo. It has been researched in Asia for over a decade now and the west are yet to catch up.
What is most commonly known as "colloidal silver" is actually ionic silver, or more accurately, silver oxide. Each ion is positively charged and is the smallest particle size. It is typically made by method of electrolysis. It is also the type of silver implicated in the condition Argyria, though not lethal, it does cause a permanent blue/grey color in the skin. To this date, silver nanoparticles have not been found to cause Argyria. They have totally different properties - A silver nanoparticle is a pure silver particle that has thousands of silver ions attached to it's surface. It also has a negative charge and is around 45 times the size of a silver ion. Nanoparticles can come in different shapes - spheres, rods, prisms, cubes... The list of conditions that silver nanoparticles are being tested against is growing: HIV, TB, Cancer, Thrombosis/stroke, Diabetes, hep B, H1N1, MRSA... Google any condition with "silver nanoparticles" and see what comes up.
