Hi Marlene, Jackdaw gave you lots of good links, especially read the Riddick stuff...
I'm no scientist, but basically zeta potential enables bodily fluids to carry more...nutrients, waste, whatever. Very important adjunct protocol in any cleansing regimen, IMO. The clearest explanation I've read on zeta potential is linked in this post, a powerpoint presentation, very easy to follow:
The recipe is 0.1 g. baking soda and 0.9 g tripotassium citrate mixed with 1 liter distilled or R.O. water, the measures are critical. I don't remember where I got the tripotassium citrate, google it, you'll find lots of resources..
Dr. Riddick on Zeta potential, this references making a stock solution:
"We have continuously employed these electrolytes, singly or in combinations, over a period of about two years. Preparation is as follows: A "Stock Solution" of 50 grams of reagent is made up to one liter with distilled water. If reagents are mixed for example, sodium citrate + potassium citrate, then the weight of the two combined is equal to 50 gpl. So far, we have tried Stock Solution combinations of sodium–potassium sulphate, sodium–potassium citrate; potassium citrate; sodium hexametaphosphate, etc., in the following ratios: 50–0; 35–15; 25–25; 15–35; and 0–50 grams per liter. We find so far that of the five reagents — and the possible combinations — 50 gpl of straight potassium citrate is the most effective. We add 10 grams of potassium (or sodium) bicarbonate to all Stock Solutions, regardless of formulation. This raises the pH of the Standard Solution to 8.0–8.4. We consider it highly essential to maintain the pH of water somewhat above the normal pH of blood (7.4.) This ten grams of bicarbonate is employed solely for pH control, and is in addition to the 50 grams of dispersants."
"From the 50 gpl Stock Solution, we prepare (as required) a Standard Solution by diluting 15, 20, 25, or 30 ml of the Stock Solution to one liter with distilled water. It is obvious that 20 ml per liter of stock solution gives a concentration of 1.0 grams per liter of the electrolyte (1,000 ppm, 1,000 mg/l). At 1.5 liters of water per day, this naturally equals 1.5 grams of electrolyte per day. Both Stock and Standard solutions should be kept in the refrigerator. None of our group is on a "low–sodium" diet of any sort, but we all attempt to control our salt consumption. The smoking and drinking pattern ranges from "moderate" to "abstinence" — upon a purely voluntary basis."
~and, when shopping for a digital scale, be sure to get one that "zeroes out". That means that you can put a container on the scale and then set the weight back to zero..makes it easier to measure percentages of grams when you don't have to figure in the weight of the container and then subtract...
