Ratio of Sodium Thiosulfate to Water for Dechlorization

Posted by Jennifer (Chicago) on 04/24/2006

Fascinating information! I've been coming to this site almost daily since discovering it about a month ago. My question for Ted is this: Please give the ratio of sodium thiosulfate to water for dechlorinization, and also, why do you add Hydrogen Peroxide to the water? Thanks so much, and keep up the amazing work!

If you can manage to get a dechlorinator from pet shops or aquarium shops (without the food coloring and clear labeling), or make one of your own from a chemical supply store (food grade) or if I am desperate enough I get a Hypo from a photo shops, then the dechlorinator for these are usually a 5% sodium thiosulfate in 95% water. The sodium thiosulfate are clear crystals looking like tiny cocoons about 1/8 inches long.

The idea to add the dechlorinator is to add more than enough to destroy all the chlorine, with enough left over to detoxify your body. So therefore, you can dechlorinate your water at one drop per liter. However, the therapeutic dosages for it is usually between 3 drops - 6 drops per glass of water.

In children who are really restless, have behavioral problems (agressiveness), autistics or have difficulty sleeping the dosages can be increase to 12 drops per glass, at which level, it has a tendency to cause loose stools, but not that serious as this is seen to detoxify the body, by detox harmful chemicals in your liver as well as chelating heavy metals out quite gently. You might be surprised to find that sodium thiosulfate is used to control children's behavior (as well as boron and (very tiny dosage of 1-2 mg) lithium. Few people know that this sodium thiosulfate chelates free radical heavy metals out of your body and also helps calm you, not to mention helping you sleep. Because of the chelating properties it is seen as a preventive from accumulating heavy metals such as mercury (autistics) or aluminum (Alzheimer disease), therefore one can view this as a way to help the treatment for such a condition. One issue is that you cannot mix both hydrogen peroxide and sodium thiosulfate together. Also, when you put several drops of hydrogen peroxide, the H2O2 tends to react with the chlorine and deactivate the chlorine also. So if you want to try the sodium thiosufate, you need not add the H2O2 together. For me, I alternate my use between one day taking H2O2 with Water and another day taking water with sodium thiosulfate. Some days i need to rid myself of heavy metals, another day I need to clear up my skin or pathogens using hydrogen peroxide.
