Thanks so much! I tried Collodial Silver a few months ago, but I didn't take it in the amounts you are recommending. It is pretty expensive stuff, so I think you'd have to be making it to be able to drink several ounces per day!
I agree that almost any Antibiotic would be better than Cipro. Right now I'm trying natural methods (again), but if it turns out that I need an antibiotic, I'll try to get one of the safer ones.
