We used Amazing Silver Balm and Liquid 10ppm Colloidal Silver 1.5 Mls both 3 times a day for 12 days to knock my son's MRSA Staph infection when Antibiotics failed over a 6 month period. Its important that you eat very little salt or salty foods 1 hour before or after treatments and if you make your own silver, keep it from the light (in a dark bottle). Lean beef some.. yes but good to detox with chlorophyl (green alphalpa) every other morning. This keeps the liver strong during treatment. Silver works but you have to watch the salt!
