The Great Debate
In reality, ionic silver solutions are not in the least bit inferior to particulate silver solutions. In fact, recent studies have shown quite the opposite. As you'll see below, ionic silver solutions have been demonstrated to be up to 10,000 times more effective against pathogens than particulate silver solutions.
The myth that the particulate form of colloidal silver is somehow superior to the ionic form has been perpetrated by a handful of very vocal individuals on the internet who have a vested financial interest in selling an overly-expensive bottled commercial particulate-based colloidal silver product.
Medical Studies Show Ionic Silver Works Best
What really matters is keeping the CS in contact with the problem area.
I posted a true story about an 85 year old neighbor who had an infected big toe. She had a lot of pain, and couldn't even wear a slipper. The doctor tried to treat her, but it wasn't working. I gave her a plastic container about the size of her foot and filled it with CS enough to cover the toe. Told her to soak the toe while she watched TV which was most of the time. In a day the pain was gone, and a day or so later the infection was gone too. That was using 6 PPM ionic silver.
I was just reading about the man whose skin was blue in color. He had been drinking colloidal silver. Using it externally is fine. Personally, I use a product named Puracyn which is natural body chemicals but is deadly to 99.99% of germs, bacteria and virus's including MRSA and HIV and is used externally, It is as safe to use as water but is devastating to alien cells.
I know it works as I am a regular user.
