Dosage and Water Treatment

Posted by L (India) on 08/23/2012

Hello Ted, I would be most grateful if you could please advise on 2 simple questions below:
1. You said in a post on earthclinic that one remedy to counteract Herxheimers die-off is 1 teaspoon of Sodium Thiosulphate 4 to 10 times a day. Could you clarify whether you mean 1 tsp of ST crystals/powder or 1 tsp of 10% liquid?
2. Also, I live in India half of the year and, as in Thailand, the bottled water is not great quality - full of chloride and other nasties. You have said that personally you add one rice grain of ST to each 2L of water to dechlorinate it. But how to take out the fluoride & other impurities from the water? I've read on the earthclinic website that borax chelates fluoride & other heavy metals, but that it's not safe to take borax every day. What about EDTA - should I add that to the water along with the ST? Your thoughts on how to optimise the bottled water in India (and also tap water in Europe) would be very much appreciated, along with precise quantities to add to it. Thanking you in advance!

10% liquid

2. But how to take out the fluoride & other impurities from the water? I've read on the earthclinic website that borax chelates fluoride & other heavy metals, but that it's not safe to take borax every day.

I just take borax, one tiny pinch to protect against that.

What about EDTA - should I add that to the water along with the ST?

It chelates heavy metals, but is not effective for flouride. Maybe one drop of tetrasodium EDTA is what I used per liter water in plastic or glass container. Under no circumstances should that water be stored in metals, as they affect the growth of plants and humans the same. The worst is aluminum.

Your thoughts on how to optimise the bottled water in India (and also tap water in Europe) would be very much appreciated, along with precise quantities to add to it.

There's many ways you could do that. The easiest way is to add some magnets onto the walls of the bottle, where pointing magnetic north goes in the bottle. You test this with a compass, and if it points north on the side of magnets its north. Though in practice N or S, is actually benefits, but North has a better one, as it stimulates growth more than South magnetic poles. You can test this North and South magnetic by doing a bean sprouts test I did several years ago, the plants actually grow more. The test requires 6 to 7 days. The results are always consistent: north facing the water grows better than south, but you can make a mistake and it doesn't harm growth at all, in other words magnets work on water.

I have made many other tests since then, and here are the conclusions:

1. Tap water causes the water to rot faster. No growth or minimal growth. In swimmers, they get fungal infections internally from long term chlorine water used in swimming pools as fungal spores survives well in chlorinated water. I have seen Olympic swimmers have it in their bloodstream.
2. Plain supermarket water, similar to above. (maybe they just used tap water), a bit better on growth then 1.
3. Filtered water. Similar to above, but if filters not replaced within time, worse. They do not filter out metals in general and some brands add metals from pipe fittings.
4. Mineral water the best growth, but the one that is outstanding from all brands I tested in Thailand is Ocean Deep brand, made from ocean deep water. I tested trace lanthanum chloride and found it to have similar growth in bean sprouts to Ocean deep water. So maybe that's what is missing in land water, the main element.
5. Magnetic water using tap water came out well, similar to mineral water.
6. Magnetic water using mineral water is better.
7. Mineral water that doesn't cost much but has the same quality as more expensive ones is Aura water.
8. Microwave water, small growth seen but bad overall against untreated water.
9. Boiled water 5 minutes with aluminum container, it doesn't grow.
10. Fluoride toothpaste tiny amounts in water, no growth at all.

You actually don't need expensive machines for alkaline water, if they are actually made with this device they do not stay alkaline for long. Within a few hours the alkalinity is lost. It is electrostatic water, while chemically created alkaline water stays alkaline. One thing you have to remember, most water should measure the ORP (oxidation reduction potential) too, not just the pH. The aim is lowest as possible for ORP, it is possible with lemon and baking soda, and also apple cider vinegar and baking soda, but it is also possible with sodium ascorbate, or vitamin c with baking soda also.

Hi Ted, can you tell me where to buy Sodium Thiosulfate in Bangkok? I heard that it will take yellow bleach stains out of white fabric. Thanks much for your help!
