Replied By Sandra (The Netherlands) on 02/26/2014Hello, I am amazed with the contradictory info about Sodium Tetraborate B4Na2O7 10H2O, on the package is saying WARNING/DANGER/TOXIC.
My questions are: Is this the right one? How come people use this for healing?
If you find the time, I would appreciate your reply.
Thanks, kind regards, Sandra

Replied By Nicole P. (Usa) on 07/24/2016I think the dilution is to avoid getting to much NaCl (table salt) in your tummy. The Borax reacts with the HCl in your stomach to form Boric acid (H3BO3) and NaCl. If you drink salt water at too high a concentration, you will vomit. I would surmise, then that if you take Borax at too high a concentration, you would also vomit from the resultant salt water.
Replied By Lou (Tyler, Tx) on 01/15/2017When I first started reading about this cure in 2008, I found the original instructions that were on the Borax box, which included dosages for cures. Don't be afraid of it; just don't confuse Borax with boric acid. You want the Borax from the laundry aisle.
Replied By Anon (Anon) on 06/08/2017As I recall, Ted recommended it that way for convenience - you sip it throughout the day - and for the peace of mind of people who were nervous about drinking something they percieved as potentially dangerous. It is even more safe diluted and drunk gradually. You would also be able to detox more gradually I would think.
