The answer is yes & no.
Our good gut flora resides in the Large Intestine. If you take the prescribed amount, it is absorbed in the small intestine and will not kill the good gut flora.
So for the vast majority of diseases and for many Candida Symptoms, Colloidal Silver
has no side effects when taken as directed.
However if your Candida is advanced, then larger amounts of Colloidal Silver
are required, and this could impact our good gut flora. In this case we must re-populate our good gut flora. Please see details here:
"Perhaps the most widely known use of Colloidal Silver
for fungal infections is its use by women who suffer from chronic vaginal Candida yeast infections, or systemic Candida yeast infections. Women frequently use larger than normal doses of colloidal silver for a few weeks -- anywhere from two to four ounces
daily of a 10 ppm solution –in order to rid themselves of nasty Candida yeast infections.
Internal use of colloidal silver like that against deep-seated fungal infections such as Candida yeast can be amazingly effective. However, for maximum success you absolutely have to remember to re-establish your body’s natural intestinal flora during and after the treatment period.
Contrary to popular belief, colloidal silver does not know the difference between the beneficial bacteria that inhabit your intestinal tract, aiding in digestion and contributing to the body’s overall immune status, and the nasty fungal and microbial pathogens that compete for turf in the same region and wreak havoc on your health.
Generally speaking, colloidal silver kills all single-celled microbes it comes into contact with, good and bad alike. And if you are taking larger-than-normal daily amounts of colloidal silver (such as three or four ounces
a day rather than several small teaspoons full per day) in order to stop a nasty internal fungal infection, you can wipe out a large portion of your body’s beneficial micro-flora along with the fungal pathogens you’re after.
And because Candida yeast and other fungal pathogens are such rapid colonizers if there are no beneficial microorganisms in the intestinal tract to form a competitive barrier against them, all of your efforts to heal a Candida yeast infection can end up being for naught. The relatively large daily dose of colloidal silver will kill everything in its track, so to speak. And then when the treatment is finished, the Candida yeast fungus can step back in and re-colonize your entire intestinal tract, potentially leaving you in worse shape than when you started.
The simple solution is this: If you find that you have to use larger-than-normal daily amounts of colloidal silver internally to rid yourself of a persistent or deep-seated Candida yeast infection, be sure to re-colonize your digestive tract daily with Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium and other beneficial microbes that are native to the intestinal tract.
By doing so daily, during the entire colloidal silver treatment period and for a week or so afterwards, you will completely stop the Candida fungal pathogen from re-establishing colonies in your digestive tract.
You can do this by taking commercial supplements containing beneficial microbes, such as one called I-Flora from Sedona Labs which contains a “grid” of 16 different beneficial microorganisms that are native to the human intestinal tract. Or you can do so by eating moderate daily portions of high-quality yogurt containing high levels of active beneficial bacterial cultures."
