Unsure if I have enough experience to give you a definitive answer but according to my research you might want to look into MSM as well. I was getting good results with CDS (less herximer reactions and way better taste, also some bacteria thrive on citric acid . Make your own instructions on Utube.) And DMSO taken orally with CDS, but my family complained of my door. MSM is also known as DMSO2. It has many of the same properties is nontoxic even at high levels and is already oxidized. Not sure if it will carry the CDS into the cell as effectively due to the oxidation but it does penetrate the cell wall. If you are going to try Miracle-Mineral-Supplement I would definitely recommend CDS along with MSM. Buy veterinary supplies. Cheaper and purer than human supplements. No anticipating agents that can diminish effectiveness.
