Sources for Sodium Nitrate and Potassium Citrate?

Posted by Rick on 09/27/2007

Ted, Thank you for your quick response and kind help. It is greatly appreciated. I went to a couple of dr's early on and they gave me antibiotics for staph and one gave me pennicillin and the other gave me a couple of others. Nothing helped and a culture showed nothing as did a blood test. Where does one find such items as sodium citrate and pottassium citrate? I am taking Potassium pills and ester c and e and a and kelp, alfalfa, acidophulus, and a bunch of others. Tried extract of goldenseal but that seemed to make it worse. Also tried tee tree oil, oil of oregano and on and on and on....Whew! Not giving up the battle yet. Thanks again,

First off I would get the urine and saliva pH to 7 first. Second the sodium citrate and potassium citrate can be made indirectly as follows:

2 tablespoon of lime juice (or whole lime squeezed) plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.

The lemon has both the sodium citrate (from the citric acid) and the potassium citrate has some too. A direct making of sodium citrate can also be made as follows (not a perfect one, but the resulting pH seems reasonable) for biological parameters needed:

1/4 teaspoon of citric acid plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water.

The citric acid will react with the sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to get sodium citrate. Potassium citrate may be available in potassium tablets, just read the labels. Most companies will make them from potassium chloride, some from potassium citrate and yet another from potassium bicarbonate. The ones I used is the potassium citrate and the potassium bicarbonate.

For healing to commence, aloe vera juice, vitamin C 1000 mg (rose hips or sodium ascorbate), and magnesium citrate 250 mg is needed.
