Okay. I had read that taking small amounts of Borax can reduce arthritis. Borax is an antidote to FLUORIDE. So I googled Boron & Borax and Fluoride. Came up with interesting articles. Boron can cure arthritis. I find this very Interesting. Once I have more confirmation, I will share it with my mom-dad who have arthritis.....
If you google "boron & arthritis" , there are tons of studies done on that.
Then google "boron & fluoride". Boron and fluoride can form a compund called Boron Fluoride... or something similar.
So fluoride will react with Boron and be rendered harmless ?? I assume.
Borax is Sodium Borate. So some kind of chemical reaction occurs when we do this.
I got this recipe from earthclinic. Add 1/8 tsp of Borax to 1 liter of water. and drink it all through the day.
I am getting very interested in chemistry these days. :) Gotta read more.
It has been labelled as poison to prevent ppl from taking it internally. Which drug company wants us to cure arthritis. They want us to suppress the symptoms only by taking painkillers. sigh!!
But it is as safe as salt. in small amounts (10-20 mg per day) it can help alleviate arthritis symptoms.
From what I have read and what I beleive, it is an antidote to fluoride.... I have to try it myself...
