Yes I'm sure they are quite good, at reducing your bank balance... you can obtain a far superior complex of live micro organisms via consuming freely available kefir, (only consume the actual grains themselves if you are lactose intolerant).
"I was taking Colloidal Silver b/c I was living with an herbalist and he had his own label so I had access to it. I had caught some respiratory bug from a friend and he encouraged me to use it w/a nebulizer and drink it. So I did. My empirical evidence was that after drinking it for a little while my stomach became extremely bloated and I started having digestive probs. It happened very quickly so something in my internal environment changed drastically."
This is quite simply unrealistic to say the very least, as a healthy human has around 4 pounds of live bacteria inside the intestine when in a healthy condition, as you say you were. It takes at the very least several months of abuse to create dysbiosis, therefore your experience of everything happening rather quickly is not coherent. Additionally, if you delievered the CS via a nebulizer you were infact BYPASSING your digestive system... so how could it possibly cause digestive issues ? How do you know you were not already in a state of decline and this minor ailment pushed you over the edge ? Your observation is nothing more than unsubstantiated conjecture.
As for everybody rushing in and talking about people turning blue all at once on the forum today, well isn't that just amazing... Silver nitrate and silver citrate are the culprets for argyria, which bear absolutely no relation to positively charged ionic silver, they are completely different. I even used CS topically direct to my skin to control Acne from the inability to detoxify via the liver due to overload and my skin cleared up very quickly.
Goodluck searching for your "cure" folks, I'm wasting my time attempting to provide postive information here.
