Pf symptoms caused by virus? What about collodial silver?

Posted by Dan D. on 5/20/03 at 19:41 (119435)

I have had pf for 6 years (in both feet) and have been on crutches most of that time. I've tried almost everything except surgery and EWST. Both my massage therapist and a nutritionist I know speculated recently that the source of my problem could be a virus that has settled in the tissue.
My nutritionist has recommended I take colloidal silver to kill any virus in my system that may be complicating things. Has anyone out there heard of pf systems having a viral cause. And has anyone had experience with collodial silver as an alternative to antiobiotics?

Well, typical pf symptoms, inflammation in area where plantar fascia connects to bone. A sense of tightening of the fascia as stretching helps.
Really classic symptoms except that I'm not worse upon my first step in the morning (although my tendons are a little tighter in the morning due to lack of use).
