Quite a lot of interesting info there. I researched the Colloidal Silver several years ago, but got mixed info. The people who turned a permanent blue-gray put me off a bit. As a limited therapy , I'd try it but only with good guide-lines. Most of the suggestions I researched revolved around giving up sugar, chocolate and a lot of other things which unfortunately my life sort of assumes will be around. I had a very interesting experience with a head cold and Zinc Gluconate about 2 months ago. My viral head colds almost inevitably triggered a strep infection in my lungs, which, with my asthma, was disabling unless I took amoxicillin ( damn Antibiotics ). So anything to contain the head cold. The ZG worked fine, and my candidiasis was arrested for 12 days in the process. I subsequently tried the ZG without the head cold but got no positive response. Which reminded me of the Russian work with viruses derived from sewerage that were used to destroy the flesh-eating bacteria that couldn't be stopped in the US. A number of Americans had to go to Russia to be cured, but we ( the AMA ) won't recognize the value. The old NIH ( not invented here ) factor at work. If a virus which eats candida is isolated, I'm sure it won't be here.
