"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."
I said I was drinking it and using a nebulizer. here --> "My empirical evidence was that after drinking it for a little while my stomach became extremely bloated and I started having digestive problems." Yea, who knows where my body was before, but the Colloidal Silver put me over the edge if anything. I rarely got sick, so I 'll say my immune system was pretty good. I think it's more important HOW MUCH I was drinking than the time frame, and I never abused my body or took Antibiotics . I had access to loads of free Colloidal Silver , I am not sure how much I drank, but it was at the insistence of this herbalist. There are too many factors here, and in all due respect it is not up to any particular person to determine that my own personal experience & observations are "unsubstantiated conjecture". The whole gist of it is to understand whether or not CS kills beneficial flora and it does-- INDISCRIMINATELY. My story is anecodotal and will probably not suffice for anyone. But for me, it was a very simple connection to make. What one can do is find all the "unsubstantiated conjecture" of the many others on CZ who either A. found CS did nothing for their candida B. feel that after using CS they developed candida. Did you have candida, did it at all help? Maybe people aren't familiar with kefir grains or the silver nitrate causing agryria. It's not cause to throw one's hand's up and walk away b/c they simply aren't educated on the same issues.
