Does Anyone Know ANYTHING About Collodial Silver? I Guess Its Some Kind Of Oil Or Tincture?

Does Anyone Know ANYTHING About Collodial Silver? I Guess Its Some Kind Of Oil Or Tincture?

A friend of mine swears that they have only read good things about this remedy for ALL that ails you. I am wondering about any research that has or has not been done on its usefullness with HIV.

Research has shown that Silver does possese gemicidal properties but the mechanism of action is not clearly understood yet.

I have a friend who swears by this but the medical research does NOT show it has other than a minor benefit for viruses. I am not giving medical advice, but St. Joseph, Tampa Care, my care team says check with your ID Professional, as for them absolutely not, there to many ways to, even with every protective sterilization process, to get outside bacteria into your body. They have treated more than 1 case of this attempt at treatment, the worst was one got bacteremia, which requires a 12 to 20 week continuous daily IV. I personally got bacteremia from a contaminated pic line and my immune system was so weak my continuous IV lasted 186 days. I became the test person for the new pressurized IV bags and cleaned my pic line daily and flushed and hooked another unit up and them put it in a top pocket and has since been approved for many treatments of bacterial infections!

I discussed this with my GP who specializes in HIV. He did not say not too, but warned that there was insufficient evidence. Also that because 70% of Immune System is Digestive based. I would do better with Probiotics and Herbal Teas. Less long term damage by adding Silver to system even in such small amounts.
