I don't know, kas. It's been a while since I read Jim Humble's books, but I don't recall him referring a lot to taking the mms with water. I'm sure it's an option, but in my head, I believe the juice to be a buffer, making it easier on the smell, taste and stomach. Whether or not it is any 'stronger' just because it makes us feel nauseous it an interesting question. Has anyone gotten on Jim Humble's site to see if that question has been posed and answered?
Personally, I believe that if the water makes the mms intolerable, it makes sense to 'buffer' it with juice; otherwise, it may mean one may not be able to take the mms at all. I know I couldn't, after trying it that way!!!
There have been previous posts by others who have done studies and their own analyses that indicate the same amount of chlorine dioxide in varying amounts of liquid, etc.
Anyway, my hope is that it is working even though it doesn't have the awful taste and side effects, because I think I'd have to stop taking mms if I had to take it with water.........(aaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh).
I'll say one thing; I take the mms with grape juice and I can taste the mms in it at higher doses, so it must still be there! And I have experienced some benefits. Mostly, I just have a better sense of well-being and a spot on my face that has been scabbing over repeatedly for a couple of years (should have gone to a doctor, but.......)has just healed over and is, for all intents and purposes,........gone. Also just had a painful bout with diverticulitis that would normally have required Antibiotics ; is healing nicely with little or no symptoms at this writing. I had 'taken a break' from the mms for a few days and eaten nuts during that time...just enough for the diverticulitis to flare up. Won't do THAT again. Am hoping the mms can do something about the intestinal 'pouches' so that they go completely away!!
Anyhoo......on with our quest. Wishing you and all who tread this path success and good health!
