I have no experience with Russ Newman's CS but I did make a batch of my own this weekend. I joined a CS email group (one of yahoo's) and there is a difference of opinion from them regarding some statements I have seen Russ make. Russ says quality CS should be a dark color, the CS group says it should be clear and nearly tastless. The batch I made this weekend was clear and had little odor or taste. The taste was not metallic. So far my results with using the CS are these:
I am having incredible Herxheimer reactions (flu like symptoms from die off of Candida and other toxins). As a matter of fact, I feel quite crappy. I have slept like the dead for two nights in a row, though. I used it on a wart that I have had for over a year and it is no longer red and sore and appears to be getting smaller though it has only been a couple of days. On other skin abrasions, I have seen a marked healing in just two days. CS is easy and cheap to make. I can post directions if you like.
