After my last question, I did go and use pH strip test, and it is way too acidic. I couldn't even get the strip to read and thought that the strips might be bad, so I tested something I know is higher pH, and that worked just fine.
How do I get the CDS to neutral pH?
My sodium chlorite is 22.4% and the activator HCL is 4%, and I'm following A. Kalcker's directions, exactly, from both the book and video. I used distilled water. Should I use bottled spring water, instead, maybe? Maybe a little less activator? I do NOT want to add sodium chlorite drops to the completed CDS because I already have a sensitive stomach. Maybe I could add a pinch of pink salt to alkalize to the concentrate?
I put one cup of distilled water to absorb the gas for 12 hours, and then change over to do another 12 hours. If I add anything to it, how much, (such as salt)? Or, if I change the drops in the shot glass from 5 mls/5 mls, what ratio can I use to get a better result?
It seems that Icelandic brand spring water has a pH of 8.4 or so, and I think I will try working with that one. Fiji is supposed to be 7.7, though my test strips showed Fiji to be 6.5. I appreciate the reply about using the spring/well water. I thought that it had to be distilled water. Why does Andreas recommend distilled water when the pH of distilled is not what works best?
For about 10 days I was using it and if I used more than a minute amount, I was getting bad acid reflux. That is what caused me to question the pH, thanks to @CLO2 on this board, and found that my CDS finished product was too acidic. I can say, honestly, though, that something good has been happening in my healing process. It will take a long term approach in my case, and the benefits have been subtle, but when you've been ill for as long as I have, the subtle improvements are thrilling!
I'm waiting for a delivery of Icelandic water, and then will make my new batch of CDS, with a more balanced pH.
New to CDS/MMS. I've spent the last five weeks researching mainly CDS.
I have watched Andreas Kalcker's video on how to make CDS the right way a few times.
I've also watched the video in the link below and will probably follow this method when I make my first batch of CDS. The one reaction to reach 3,000 ppm method seems simpler than Andreas Kalckers two reaction method.
This video recommends using Alhaline water with a ph content of 9.5+.
