I was up to 6 drops once a day using lemon juice and distilled water. I was taking it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It was making me so sick all day that I couldn't hardly make it through work, and it was getting to where just thinking about taking it would make me nauseous. I started taking it in the evening 2 or 3 hours after eating and switched to mixing it in unfiltered apple juice without ascorbic acid from the health food store. Since then I have increased 1 drop a day and I have had no bad reaction at all. I got up to 12 drops and still nothing. Yesterday I decided to try it with water again because I wanted to see if the apple juice is deactivating the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , I dropped down to 10 drops, it's been 24 hours now and I've had slight nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and a horrible taste in my mouth that nothing helps. I know it is thought that whatever natural vitamin C content there is isn't a problem, but it seems to me that it might be. Any thoughts?
