That probably explains why I have seen a regimen that included quantities of high quality colloidal silver (taken internally), digestive enzymes, probiotics and trace minerals have such good success against Crohn's Disease. Colloidal silver, in addition to destroying the bacteria and pathogens also helps heal and repair tissue, even to the point of tissue regeneration. Digestive enzymes help dissolve and remove scar tissue. Probiotics help re-establish good intestinal bacteria. I am not sure what role, if any, trace minerals may have but we are all deficient in many of them and the combination has been a good one.
It might even be a better one if combined with your external ionic silver, DMSO protocol.
