Colloidal silver is made of tiny silver particles suspended in a base liquid. While silver has been used in medicinal treatments in the past, it has long been replaced with safer alternatives, reports the National Center of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, NCCAM.  Read full article at: Using Colloidal Silver as Natural Treatment Remedy for Children
