There are no studies looking at how chlorous acid behaves in the body, so we don't know if it gets into the blood stream or not.
I never said that sodium chlorite by itself is ineffective. Jim Humble reported wonderful success with it on his first trip to Africa. Miracle-Mineral-Supplement evolved because he thought that if a little bit was good, a whole lot more should be even better. Also, he was looking for a way to speed the process up.
I don't happen to agree with him. If a little bit works, stick with it, and a little patience often goes a long way. Most people don't get ill overnight so why should we expect healing to take place within a few hours...?
Our group has seen very good results using low concentration sodium chlorite solutions. It takes a couple of months for the process to work, but the lack of adverse side effects makes that worth the extra time it takes.
We are working with 0.045 ml of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement (about 3/4 of a drop) in 1 liter of water. We actually use a 5% sodium chlorite solution which makes measuring much easier.
