I have found the missing link !
THIS explains why 16 ozs a day Mesosilver Particle Silver was useless for Esstee's infection and why only 2ozs a day of ionic was a success. Valid research cannot be disputed. Steve Barwick once again to our rescue.
"Below I will quote directly from an article titled "Comparative Analysis Study Shows Ionic Silver to Be Up to 10,000 Times More Effective Than Particulate Colloidal Silver : the End of the Great Particulate vs. Ionic Silver Debate," written by former U.S. Army medic by R.D. Todd:
"The results were astonishing! With or without the HCl mixture added, the Staphylococcus cultures (both S-1 and S-2) on the plates were virtually eradicated in just four minutes when treated with ionic silver. But the culture plates treated with the so-called “true colloid” particulate silver showed only a slight reduction in the bacterial count!
The principal conclusions from the study are as follows:
Before being treated with HCl, the ionic species of silver achieves total kill in four minutes, and is at least 100 times more potent than the particulate form of silver.
The particulate form of silver, which does contain a small amount of silver-ions, loses almost all its antibacterial potency when the ionic silver component is removed (a result of the reaction to HCl).
Comparative antibacterial potency loss in ionic-silver, due to the same HCl treatment, is negligible.
After being treated with HCl, under the same experimental conditions, the ionic-silver is now shown to be a whopping 10,000 times more potent than the particulate silver.
The results of this study clearly show that ionic species of silver dramatically outperformed the particulate species of silver. In fact, it was not even close!
The facts are: ionic-silver killed all S. aureus microorganisms with only a four minute exposure while the particulate species product was only marginally bactericidal at best, which can be attributed to the small amount of ionic silver found in it."

This research report clinches the deal that particle silver should be avoided in favor of ionic silver. Also further evidence that there is no reason to buy particle silver.
