I do not have herpes and never have. I saw part of this post in a newsletter and was interested. I am interested in al natural healing. My question is why can't a person make collooidial silver at home? I have heard some good results from home makers. Do commercial makers use different equiptment? Where can I get more info on this? Any websites? Also where do you get the zinc? Is this good for all skin diseases? Where can I get info on zinc?
