To answer your question about how CDH differs from traditional Miracle-Mineral-Supplement ; CDH has all of the same ingredients as traditional MMS (as opposed to CDS which is just CLO2 dissolved in water) but since it's activated in a closed/sealed container for 12 hours (I'm referring to the overnight 1 bottle method), it contains from 4 to 6 times more CLO2 than traditional MMS activated with either 4% HCl or 50% citric acid respectively, and at the time of being taken orally. CLO2 has been considered to be the primary therapeutic element of MMS, however there may be some benefit to the unactivated sodium chlorite too. Also, as you’ll read below, making CDH (or MMS in the traditional way) with HCl as opposed to citric acid , has other benefits that really do warrant using it instead of citric acid (besides HCl tastes much better too).
According to Tomas, our resident chemist, each drop of MMS contains the potential to produce 6.7mg of CLO2. When CDH is made following our instructions, each drop produces approximately 3.5mg or just a little more than half the potential. This means that that there is still about 1/2 of the sodium chlorite left unactivated, which may still activate in the stomach, creating even more CLO2 there.
In juxtaposition to the above, it has recently been recommended that people activate their MMS for 60 seconds (but still in an open container), and while this does produce quite a bit more CLO2 than just 20 or 30 seconds, it still produces 4 to 6 times LESS CLO2 than CDH does. 6 times less if you use 50% citric acid and 4 times less if you use 4% HCl.
As mentioned above though, even if the sodium chlorite doesn't get activated in the stomach, it may have some beneficial therapeutic effect - the jury is still out on that though.
CDH is also much easier on the stomach for most people, possibly because more of the sodium chlorite is activated outside the body instead of inside the stomach.
Another advantage to having more activation happen outside the body is that some people (especially people over 45), are deficient in HCl, so for them the sodium chlorite of MMS tends to use up what little HCl they have in their stomachs making the stomach even more deficient in HCl. The body then has to pull from whatever resources it has to produce more HCl which is taxing on the body mineral and other reserves.
Here is a quote from a website about the importance of HCl in the body:

[quote]"[color=#ff0000][b][size=4]HCL: Roles in the Body[/size][/b][/color]:
The primary role of hydrochloric acid is to sterilize the food you eat and to prevent harmful bacteria from entering the GI tract. HCL also triggers the release of enzymes such as pepsin which are essential for the digestion of protein.
Upon being released by the parietal cells of the stomach, HCL also triggers the release of alkaline bicarbonate into the blood. Its important to mention that HCL production is a major expenditure of biological energy. There are numerous minerals that appear to be hydrochloric acid-dependent, chiefly: magnesium, chromium, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Of these minerals, zinc and sodium are both are responsible for the production of HCL.
This means that deficiencies in HCL can and likely will result in the inability to utilize several vitally important minerals and nutrients!"[/quote]
With CDH, the preferred activator is 4% HCl which if anything should add to the stomach's supply of this vitally important acid as opposed to taking away from it. However if citric acid is used to make CDH instead, at least the sodium chlorite will still be more completely activated outside the body, freeing the HCl of the stomach to do what it's designed to do as mentioned in the article above.

Well I hope that helps answer a lot of question that you here may have.
