Sinusitis is the reason I discovered colloidal silver over 30 years ago. I had been suffering from sinus infections my entire life. My work involved frequent travel all over the world. At each destination, within a few days, I would come down with a sinus infection. I would seek help from the local medical community, and this would result in the injection of the latest antibiotic. That would usually clear up in a few days. I had a long history of trying to remedy this situation. I had seen many ear nose and throat specialist and allergist and even had an operation, an SMR (subcutaneous membrane restructure), but I was still subject to infections. I was then, and I still am, disdainful of "alternative medicine." I was in Las Vegas on a job and had been unable to work for three days. I had been bedridden with a fever that would break and then reappear, drinking a lot of water, and trying to "sweat it out." I was awake in the middle of the night and listening to an all-night radio program that featured guests promoting various "wacko" subject from flying saucers to conspiracy theories.
One of these guests was promoting colloidal silver. He sounded more rational than the usual people on this program. I had not been aware of the fact that silver had been used extensively as an antimicrobial before the introduction of antibiotics. The next morning I called the local health food store and ordered an 8-ounce bottle of the colloidal silver they recommended. They sent over by taxi, and the driver delivered it to my hotel room. It came with a dropper, and I started to flood my sinus cavities with it. Within two hours all my symptoms disappeared. I was determined to never be without this remedy in the future.
A few months later I went to the Philippine for what was to be a relatively long term assignment. I had been using the colloidal silver I bought in Las Vegas, and it was preventing any recurrence of my sinus problems. I was down to my last few ounces, so I called the health food store in Las Vegas and told them I wanted some more of the same thing. They said that they had switched to a new improved version. So I accepted this and ordered. What I received was a dark amber colored substance that had a strong vinegar-like the taste and was very different from what I expected. I decided there and then to find out precisely what "colloidal silver" was and how it is made. Being an electrical engineer, I was more fortunate in this endeavor that most people in this endeavor. The process of electrolysis was no mystery to me and Michael Faraday I regarded as an old friend. On researching what the "state-of-the-art" for making this substance was, it was apparent to me that no electronics expertise had been applied. I bought some pure silver, 999, and proceeded to make my own.

abeland,

I might have missed it, but what was the concentration of your Colloidal Silver solution? By drinking a Gallon of water (containing Colloidal Silver) a day that must have helped to really flush your system. Might not have had the same effect with a quart or less of water a day (just pondering the body's need for water in a time of crisis).

Thank you for sharing by the way.
