Sodium Thiosulfate is used internally to remove chlorine, cyanide and heavy metals. It is available in a liquid solution or in a dry form.

How Much Liquid Sodium Thiosulfate Should I Take?

If you are using 10% sodium thiosulfate, add 6-10 drops to a liter of water.  If you are trying to remove heavy metals from the body, use this amount a couple of times a week. If you have a 30% solution of sodium thiosulfate, use only 2-3 drops in a liter of water.

How Much Dry Sodium Thiosulfate Should I Take?

If you have the dry form of sodium thiosulfate, add 1 flake (about the size of a grain of rice) to a tall glass of water, or 2-3 flakes to a liter of water.

Sodium Thiosulfate can cause diarrhea as it removes toxins. If you are bothered by this side effect, reduce the amount of sodium thiosulfate you take.

Taking vitamin C when you are taking sodium thiosulfate will help your body’s ability to handle the detoxification.

Sodium thiosulfate may also remove other minerals from your body. If you use sodium thiosulfate on a regular basis you may need a mineral supplement.

How Much Sodium Thiosulfate Should I Use Topically?

Sodium Thiosulfate is used topically for fungal conditions like tinea versicolor and ringworm.

According to WHO,1 a 25% solution of sodium thiosulfate is used 2-4 times a day for four weeks to treat tinea versicolor, a condition similar to ringworm and athlete’s foot.

Sodium thiosulfate is also used topically to reduce calcium deposits. A 10% solution is applied to the calcification a couple of times a day.

I have taken STS (sodium thiosulfate) for 2 weeks so far and will be continuing for a month or two before I take a break and repeat. I'm taking 1-1/2 teaspoon of the crystals mixed with 1-1/2 teaspoon of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) with 1-1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in about 3-4 oz of distilled water, drank while fizzing. I feel it is a deep detox and I am experiencing lots of trips to the bathroom with a little bit of stomach upset that's manageable. I am even thinking of drinking two does today. So far, so good. Where's this stuff been my whole life?

Hi, any updates with your detox protocol? Are you still doing it? What symptoms you had before detox and what symptoms improved?

I drop one Sodium Thiosulfate pellet in a tall glass of distilled water. Wait until it dissolves, stir thoroughly and slowly drink down. I do this twice a week, two days in a row. It detoxes heavy metals and other toxins. You can tell by the way your sweat smells... very interesting. I bought it at a science supply company. Inexpensive and a bottle of lab grade pellets will last for decades.

Ok, after being told I have calcification on some thyroid nodules I found an article by Dr. Sircus about magnesium and sodium thiosulfate. I have scoured the Internet and found one product in granules on Amazon. I have also scoured this website and there is no clear instruction on how to use this product! How many teaspoons of this stuff do I take? what do I mix it with to consume it? If I decide to use it as a salve how do I use the granules? I refuse for my thyroid to be removed and do not like conventional doctors. My hair analysis shows my calcium is high and magnesium is a little lower hence the calcium is in my soft tissue not my bones and therefore in my nodule. Sodium and potassium show low. I am in deep detox after removing silicone breast implants and getting suddenly I'll from them this past July. My body obviously stored metals while these immune disrupters were in and now that they are out WOW my body is detoxing and it's hitting me hard and hitting my heart, thyroid, joints even my gums in my mouth. I'm doing all the things I need to keep pathways open. My question is how do I know how much of this stuff to take if it's in powder form and if I find it in liquid how much to take? My goal is to break down thyroid calcification due to hashimotos. No I do not take iodine however I'm embarking on trying this.

Thank you.

G: I have been detoxing a large amount of inorganic Manganese and other metals for some time. I have taken the S.T. oral but not enough for the job so started 1/4 cup in hot bath for 1 hr. I am now down to a pinch (proly 10-15 grains) in hot bath for first 20min then add Magnesium Sulfate aka Epsom Salts (among other minerals including Borax) for the remainder of the bath and am making progress.

Don't forget to take Vit-D & K to get those minerals in the bones. Chanca Piedra is very good for removing excess Calcium. Do you use much dairy foods? If yes, you need a radiation detox for the bones. Take the herb Sarsaparilla and the mineral Strontium Citrate for this.

Turmeric and Pineapple will reduce the inflammatory condition. A Parasite Cleanse may be needed for the intestines, actually looks very needed in your case; you seem to have absorption issues. Glutamine, DGL, and Allantoin will heel the guts if all the infection is first removed.

Thank you so much for your response. I do not drink a lot of milk, have calmed down on the cheese and greek yogurt but eat a lot of greens which can also be calcium building. My gut issues are good but up and down as I go though different stages of detox. Since removing breast implants in july of this year my body is releasing stored metals and toxins. Even my thyroid is starting to work on its own making it unnecessary for me to take thyroid meds. Thanks again for your response.

How to Take Sodium Thiosulfate

Hi everyone. I just got a bottle of lab grade sodium thiosulfate from a science company in the mail. I am looking forward to using the sodium thiosulfate to detox from heavy metals. Inside my bottle are pellets the size of rice grains. Can someone provide the recipe? For example, do I dissolve 1 pellet in a liter of water and sip that throughout the day or should I treat the pellet like a supplement and swallow it with a lot of water? Thank you so much for your advice.

Hi Jenny, Yes, I have the same one. What I do is take a tall glass of water and drop in one of those rice size pellets. I let it dissolve, stir it up and then drink it down. Of course, I always err to the side of caution as I would overdo and then have a reaction with various things I've tried! Still, this worked for me because within about 5 minutes mucus would pour out of my nose! So obviously it did its work. Hope this helps, Lisa

Better But With Side Effects

Hi Lisa,

Thank you so much for clarifying. Last night I added 1 pellet of ST to a very large glass of spring water and drank about 1/8th of it over the course of 2 hours. That was enough for my first round of detoxing! It made my perspiration smell very interesting, let me tell you (as in UGGGGH! ) I also got a slight headache. Today it feels as though I am detoxing in the brain - have some strange sensations going on in my head. I am going to wait a couple of days, drink plenty of water and take high doses of vitamin c and then do another round.

Thank you again!
