Basically, Dr. Robert Young, and through his influence Anthony Robbins, and others have been teaching and promoting the use of NaClO2 as an additive to water for years. Dr. Young started using it around 1998.
I find it interesting that he started actively using it shortly after John Humble really uncovered it. Since Dr. Young was from Utah at that time, and John was from Nevada, it isnt that big of a leap to assume there was some contact between them.
Anyhow, Dr. Young's program uses a lower dosage (5%), about twice that of regular stabilized Oxygen, but still substantially lower than Miracle-Mineral-Supplement . He also does not specifically teach activating before usage, but does promote using a lemon wedge in the water, which does much the same thing.
In Dr. Young's protocol, 15 drops of this 5% NaClO2 is added to a liter of water, along with a teaspoon of organic greens/veggie powder, and a lemon wedge. This mix is drunk/sipped all day long, 4 - 5 liters or 1 liter per 40 lbs of body weight.
This is also combined with an alkalizing diet, moving towards 80% alkalizing/raw foods as the body becomes more hungry for that kind of food.
There are also many testimonies in Dr. Young's books, which I have. They go on and on and on, and represent people with every kind of malady.
My main complaint with Dr. Young is that he has become way too commercial. Also, the products from his former company, Innerlight, have degraded and cheapened, including their NaClO2 product. That's why I ended up making my own. And why it is SOO refreshing to see someone like John Humble, who provides WOLUMES of information for free or nearly free, and just wants to help people.
I believe that the success of this stuff is a combination of the cleansing provided by the NaClO2 on a slow and continuous basis, together with the addition of very high quality nutrition/ph balancing. With this combination, existing bugs are wiped out, and using that as a springboard the body terrain (blood AND tissues) is balanced at an alkaline level to prevent further bugs from morphing.
I can tell you without any doubt that using NaClO2 on a daily basis for years has no ill effect, based upon my personal experience and many others'. It is true though that you will see detox symptoms ... possibly diarrhea, nausea, flu-like symptoms, headache, until die-off is completed. The more alkaline you eat, the quicker these symptoms will end, and will not return.
