Hi Bill,

I purchased your book last month. It's very informative. I did not yet start with the protocol. I'm planning to start this month. I just have 1 question. Can I substitute lemon/lime/acv with calamondin or calamansi? Thank you in advance.

Hi Kin D...In answer to your question, yes you can take calamansi instead of lemon/lime/ACV. It is also a citrus fruit that contains some vitamin C. I drink calamansi all the time in the Philippines. But make sure that you use enough calamansi for two tablespoons per serving and always add sodium bicarbonate(Arm & Hammmer brand is what I use) to neutralize the acidity first as advised by Ted from Bangkok on EC and in my book.

Thanks Bill. It's great to know that. I have other questions please. Will it affect the efficacy of sodium bicarbonate, lugols iodine, lemon/lime/acv/calamansi if I prepare and put them in a bottle container(approx.2-3 glasses) early in the morning and drink the needed amount of mixture throughout the day or within the scheduled time? For instance, I prepared and mixed them at 7 AM. Can I drink the mixture at 11 AM, 3 PM, 7 PM or later in the day? This same question goes for other solution like sodium thiosulfate. Do I still need to put sodium bicarbonate in the mixture if I already have capsules of sodium ascorbate? For alkalizing protocol, I guess yes.

Since decoction of chanca piedra is more concentrated and better than tablets, capsules and tea, I'll be making my own decoction and tincture. Fresh chanca piedra is readily available here. I believe decoction can only lasts for 2-3 days. I can't make decoction every time I need it so I'm planning to make large amount and preserve it using vegetable glycerin. I'm also planning to make a tincture, but I read that tincture bypasses the gi tract and directly absorbs in the bloodstream.

Chanca piedra has anti-fungal properties. If I take it, I want it to pass my gi tract so decoction is more suitable for that than tincture. Tincture is stronger though than decoction and its absorption to the bloodstream is faster than tea and decoction, so its effect to the body is faster too. Now, I'm unsure which is better for candida sufferers, a decoction or a tincture of chanca piedra? This will be my first time making decoction and tincture of chanca piedra. I can't find several sources on how to make tincture of chanca piedra. I hope I can make it right. Your place is just some minutes away from mine. If I failed to make an effective chanca piedra decoction or tincture, I might politely ask if I can bother and visit you personally as my last resort. Thank you again.
