Would this work as well as regular antibiotics?
Had ms for over 19 years now.

No, its fine for occassional topical use, but in no way does it replace regular abx for this purpose.

Colloidal Silver: Risk Without Benefit
Stephen Barrett, M.D.
Colloidal silver is a suspension of submicroscopic metallic silver particles in a colloidal base. Long-term use of silver preparations can lead to argyria, a condition in which silver salts deposit in the skin, eyes, and internal organs, and the skin turns ashen-gray. Many cases of argyria occurred during the pre-antibiotic era when silver was a common ingredient in nosedrops. When the cause became apparent, doctors stopped recommending their use, and reputable manufacturers stopped producing them. The official drug guidebooks (United States Pharmacopeia and National Formulary) have not listed colloidal silver products since 1975.

An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.

I agree with Sarah: CS is not an acceptable solution.

but, glad to see your "reading" btw.

Someone close to me was going to do CS - thankfully he saw a LLMD got the right tests and now is in treatment; turns out he has Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

best to you,
