I've been on 90 days of pharmacuetical abx along w/ Lumrokinase/Samento/Banderol.

My dr. wanted to rx Minocin, but I broke out hives as a teenager taking Tetracycline.

He is recommended the colloidal silver, which I am not feeling comfortable about taking.

Any input greatly appreciated.

Although I'm sure other people will come on here and tell me I'm wrong and that they've had success with it.

I tried it once & it didn't do much for me. I think it was Argentyn. Some doctors who sell products get a kickback from the various companies - so, it's good to be cautious.

Also, there is controvercy about "nano" products. We really don't know the long term effects of using nano anything in the body. Some products are nano silver. It is a metal, as well. Some people try to detox heavy metals from the system.

It may be good in bandaids but I don't think I'd take it as a long term remedy.

I wouldn't take it but not because of anything I read from the quack on quackwatch. He is anti everything that has to do with natural medicines and long term abx, etc. He's a bigger quack than those who he accuses of being quacks.

Anyway, I've recently been researching this too recently and have concluded (for me anyway) that it's probably great for external use, like oral infections, etc, but to ingest it in my body, not comfortable with it, at least not yet.

Curious to hear from others about this. Thanks for posting the question. Always like to hear people's views on various supplements, medicines, lyme protocols and other health related topics.

Yes, the proprietor of Quackwatch is very closed-minded, but instead of disregarding what he says, I try to tone it down a couple notches and take it with a grain of salt.
