Is taking colloidal silver could heal flu by killing the virus?

Patient : I have a flu that has been going on almost 3 weeks now, i sneezed a lot especially in the morning, and not just mucus that came out but also specks of blood. i don't have a fever luckily though.. i also feel pain when i tried to swallow my food, my throat felt like contracted when i'm eating. i don't want to take vaccine. i did some research and found that colloidal silver could kill flu viruses and bacterias. then i found a colloidal silver thats available in my local health store and its labelled "sutton" colloidal silver. i don't know if all colloidal silver is the same or not. do you have any suggestion for me on any other alternative flu treatment? thanks in advance!
