    Hello everyone,

    I'm opening this topic up for discussion. I don't have an opinion one way or the other - I'm curious what all you silver gurus think on the matter.
    Here are two sites with diametrically opposing views on the topic:
    https://healthwyze.org/reports/633-making-and-using-genuine-colloidal-silver
    http://ianchadwick.com/blog/is-silver-safe-as-a-medicine/

    Things to discuss:
    Does silver have medicinal properties and what are they (claimed to be)?
    Is all the talk of its medicinal properties mere anecdote, or is there substance to these claims?
    Has anyone had personal experience using silver to improve health or in the treatment of ailments? What was the result?

    Should be interesting! :)

    Silver has anti microbial properties and is used in coatings of metallic implants. As for drinking colloidal silver, I have my reservations.

    I drink it every so often if needed to kill any bad bugs in my gut. I then take probiotics to boost the flora.I also use it as an antiseptic at times.

    You'll definitely need probiotics as silver won't discriminate between good or bad "bugs". Much like secondary oral antibiotics that cause diarrheoa, you run the risk of your gut being colonised by a "bad bug" (see antibiotic associated cholera)

    People like to waste time argue over usefulness of silver but Drs and babies don't!

    Silver nitrate drops used to reduce cases of neonatal gonorrhea that can lead to blindness!

    Antimicrobial use - yes
    Drinking colloidal silver - ?

    Anti-microbial isn't anti-viral.

    Member of my family has been diagnosed with candida albica and after taking many medications/toxics/which didn't help,has been offered to take colloidal silver as the last resort. We didn't know at the time the colloidal silver /as antibacterial product/ can kill a lot a bad bacteria as well as good ones which in case of candida albica was not good. The person was very weak month after month after taking this product and at the end we have rejected this product and introduced a lot of natural probiotics/ jogurt,kefir home made/and in 3 months the person has recovered completely....
