Michelle: If you want a wonder medicine with vague multitude of conditions, then we are talking about miracle healing water that is found throughout the world, such as Mexico, Germany, Japan, China, and Australia. While I don't have the luxury of obtaining any healing water samples to do the analysis, I can piece together the puzzle for you to be able to make one at your own home.

To cut to the story short, without all the marketing lingo and from you getting side tracked and confused, with abstract theories, etc. all these healing water had one thing in common: strong negative ORP (oxidation reduction potential). The other thing is low density (rarely mentioned anywhere in other websites) and I have solved some parts of it already this issue. I have devised many formulas over the years, this is not a perfect formula since I am assuming many of you will not be getting all the resources needed to make one, given that I cannot legally sell you anything, chemical suppliers don't sell in small quantities and other strange restrictions in U.S.

You just try this first:
500 mg of ascorbic acid, 1/2 teaspoon of magnesium hydroxide without the additives, and if you can find it, 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate. Add 1/2 glass of water. Allow the reaction to proceed for a couple of minutes. The approximate Oxidation Reduction potential is about -317 millivolts, based on my lab notes. Take it twice a day if you can on an empty stomach. I didn't bother to wait for exact millivolts at that time and the figure could have been more than -317 millivolts.

When we are sick with all kinds of problems, our urinary ORP (if you ever measure it!) will be a positive value or a low negative value such as -50 millivolts to 0 millivolts. If you get this value you can really be sick.

I don't often recommend this formula since most people have trouble finding the potassium citrate, or magnesium hydroxide. Magnesium hydroxide you can find easier it in a drug store, but they have to be relatively pure one without the additives, especially such as aluminum compound. I have no idea where to buy potassium citrate, since the last time I did shopping in the United States was about 25 years ago. To further improve the formula ORP values, just add 5 drops of dechlorinator you get from any pet shops they use for fish aquarium. Should you get better with this, then your next step is to raise your immune system, by taking zinc acetate, and reducing heavy metals in your body by taking sodium citrate, or better oral EDTA.
