Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide
For Disinfectant & Experimental Use


Code BIOD-1 / 1 liter glass bottle (946 ml.)
2,000 PPM (ClO2) / Price: $14.95


iodox is a product made through an associate company here in Ecuador, which has government "registro" (approval for sale throughout Ecuador) for sale as a "disinfectant." It is a form of stabilized, pharmaceutical-grade chlorine dioxide, which has been in wide use for a multitude of purposes for over 200 years. "Chlorine dioxide was discovered in 1811, and has been widely used for bleaching purposes in the paper industry, and for treatment of drinking water. More recent developments have extended its application into food processing, disinfection of premises and vehicles, mold eradication, air disinfection and odor control, treatment of swimming pools, dental applications, and wound cleansing." 1
Biotox is a product where the chlorine dioxide is stabilized in purified water. It differs from what is widely referred to as MMS (Miracle Mineral Solutions) which is an aqueous solution of sodium chlorite, which must be activated to produce the chlorine dioxide gas that is used for therapeutic purposes. 2 Both lean on the same antimicrobial properties of chlorine dioxide. It should be noted that the laws regarding the use of chlorine dioxide vary widely and need to be observed. (It should be noted that the snafus last week over a comment President Trump made concerning the use of a "disinfectant" to treat CoVid-19 was, in fact, a reference to chlorine dioxide. The media immediately proceeded to go into "gang rape" mode on the revelation with its usual delivery of disinformation.) 3 For example, in the United States the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) strongly advises consumers not to use chlorine dioxide, or at least not consume it. 4 This may seem confusing to some people because under U.S. Title 21, Subchapter B, Part 173, Subpart D, Section 173.300, the FDA's own guiding law specifies that: "Chlorine dioxide (CAS Reg. No. 10049-04-4) may be safely used in food in accordance with the following prescribed conditions:," and then those conditions are specified.5
There is no doubt, in my mind, that chlorine dioxide has therapeutic properties, I took ClO2 (in the form of MMS), along with Vitamin C, zinc, and Lugol's Iodine 15% when I got CoVid-19 on March 5, 2020 here in Ecuador. My recovery was rapid and I never missed a day of work. There were others in my area about my age who died. I lived. This is just an anecdotal observation. I'm not saying this constitutes a clinically verified cure.
Regardless (and this applies to wholesalers) our advice is to KNOW the law in your own jurisdiction and don't violate it. I will go one step farther: even IF there were no laws or regulations with respect to the therapeutic use of chlorine dioxide, it isn't a good idea to make any medical claims about it, simply because you would only upset medical authorities in the area where you live.
These people are mean, and they CAN hurt you.

If you restrict your usage of Biodox to cleaning and disinfecting household surfaces, you will find, as we have, a multitude of uses. It is a far superior disinfecting solution to a plethora of toxic cleaning agents that most people routinely use now.

Decontamination Properties of Chlorine Dioxide
Since the 1920s, chlorine dioxide has been known for its disinfecting properties. It was recognized as a chemo-sterilizing agent in 1984; and in 1988, it was registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) for use as a sterilant. The USDA has deemed chlorine dioxide as certified for organic use in crop production, as an algicide, disinfectant and sanitizer. In addition, no corrosion is observed when using materials such as stainless steel, Lexan, and various other plastics such as Delrin, Teflon, and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). With appropriate delivery equipment and care, chlorine dioxide is a safe and effective means of decontamination.
A significant safety feature of chlorine dioxide is that it has a distinct odor much like a swimming pool, making even minor leaks self-alerting, well below the human habitation safety limit. Both gaseous and aqueous phase chlorine dioxide has been proven to be an effective sterilizing agent that has broad and high biocidal effectiveness. Both forms of chlorine dioxide have been reported to effectively inactivate pathogens, including all viruses, bacteria, bacterial spores, fungi, molds and yeasts.
Gaseous chlorine dioxide has proven to be an effective sterilant. Jeng and Woodworth (1990) reported the sporicidal activity of chlorine dioxide gas. Gaseous chlorine dioxide has successfully been used to decontaminate B. anthracis (anthrax) contaminated areas of the Hart Senate Office Building and the Brentwood postal sorting facility in Washington, DC. Hans et al. also reported high efficacy of chlorine dioxide gas in reducing Bacillus spores on paper, plastic, epoxy-coated stainless steel and wood surfaces. Additionally, much research has demonstrated that chlorine dioxide gas is highly effective in eliminating foodborne pathogens such as E. coli, Listeria and Salmonella.

Chlorine Dioxide Is a Sterilant
In microbiology the probability that an object that has been subjected to a sterilization process may nevertheless remain nonsterile is called the sterility assurance level (SAL). The SAL is used to measure the probability of microorganism survival and measured in orders of magnitude reduction, also called a "log" reduction.
Chlorine dioxide, when applied correctly, provides for sterilization (6-log reduction). Chlorine dioxide is therefore defined as a chemical sterilant and is a selective oxidant that effectively destroys several components of microbial cells. It destroys the DNA in cells and, therefore, microorganisms such as bacteria, virus and mold are unable to build up a resistance. Because chlorine dioxide is selective, the oxidizing action is retained longer than other fumigation agents such as peracetic acid or hydrogen peroxide, therefore allowing for maximum kill.

Footnotes

  1. "Chlorine dioxide" -- Wikipedia. For a wider list of uses, consult Chemical Safety Facts. In this link, look under "Industrial/Manufacturing Uses."

  2. An example would be our own AO Chlorite which is not legal in all countries and for which we ask customers to investigate its status in your country of residence, as laws regarding its legalized use vary widely.



  3. Chlorine Dioxide, "Disinfectant" & CoVid-19 -- A little background is needed here. MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) goes back to the work of Jim Humble, to whom I was introduced in the early 2000's by a mutual friend in Ohio. I talk about this on our AO Chlorite page. I and my family have personally used MMS or variations of it to support our own health for almost 20 years. We are aware of what it is, what it does, what it treats, what it doesn't, but our use of it is mostly personal. We don't advertise it, and when people buy it, they have to have a foreknowledge of what it does. We are aware that this is a sensitive political area.
    So fast forward to last week (around Apr. 24, 2020).
    It appear that President Trump was contacted by someone representing Genesis II -- a self-styled church group which has made MMS a "sacrament" as a means of legally circumventing regulations. This was what was reported in the Media. Trump was obviously told what MMS does and the results people have been getting. Subsequently Donald Trump, in a televised Coronavirus press conference, made tangential references to chlorine dioxide without mentioning the compound by name. For that, he was gang raped by the media for suggesting that chlorine bleach should be injected to wipe out the Coronavirus "within a minute."
    Here's the problem with the "fake news" attack.
    Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) isn't chlorine bleach (mainly sodium hypochlorite (NaClO)).
    And success in treating CoVid-19 is exactly what some clinicians are reporting.
    Last month, Dr. Klinghard (M.D.) of the Klinghard Institute reported that medical doctors in Berlin were having success in treating CoVid-19 using MMS -- the very thing that the "fake news" has been so rigorously denigrating.
    Closer to home, a medical doctor in Ecuador has gone public, noting considerable success in "curing" (yes, he used the Spanish word "curar") CoVid-19. He made this announcement during an interview on "Ecuador en Vivo." This, in our opinion, is enough evidence to justify further research.



    North Korea has been aggressively using chlorine dioxide (ClO2) -- (go to 0:45)
    and has reported no CoVid-19 deaths -- despite the fact that it shares a border
    with China. Could this be true? We may never know.
    That said, there are element of the reporting where we must interject. For example, if it is true that Genesis II is representing that MMS (chlorine dioxide) "cures 99% of all disease," this would not comport with our experience. In fact, it's a gross exaggeration. In our experience as naturopaths and herbalists, a great many illnesses have psychological, even spiritual, etiologies. No chemical compound will ever will be found that cures most diseases. However, any honest discussion of chlorine dioxide must come down to clinical results that are untainted by political considerations or the protestations of a "bought-off" media. In the end, the controversies surrounding chlorine dioxide, in whatever form in may be found, will only be settled by the light of unbiased clinical testing.
    The media's comments on the dangers must also be addressed: there is no question that if someone were using chlorine dioxide, MMS, or any other material that reduced or could be processed to make chlorine dioxide, they could hurt themselves if they took too much. The same could be said of innumerable herbal products, as well as most vitamins and minerals. For this reason, if you're going to use this compound therapeutically, we advise that you seek out an alternative practitioner that is skilled in its use. You're taking unnecessary risks if you don't.

  4. See: 'Miracle' Treatment Turns into Potent Bleach -- put out by the FDA. This section is straight to the point: "FDA says the product is sold by many independent distributors on several websites and through online auctions. Consumers should be alert when buying such an item on the Internet because the product's labeling, colors, and logos may vary.
    "According to FDA experts, drinking the amount recommended on product labels can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration. Some labels claim vomiting and diarrhea are not uncommon after the product is ingested -- and even maintain such reactions are evidence MMS is working.
    "FDA experts say MMS is dangerous, and they're advising consumers to stop using the product immediately."

  5. See a copy of this U.S. Title 21 law. Interesting the U.S. Environemental Protection Agency (EPA) has put out an interesting document, entitled Anthrax spore decontamination using chlorine dioxide. If you carefully examine this document, you'll see a variety of recommended uses for water purification -- water that people DRINK.

Reports of Internal Protocol -- We have reports from Germany where a similar 2,000 PPM stabilized chlorine dioxide gas solution is being used.
Their "prevention" protocol is: "Take 1 ml. (approximately 20 drops), two times per day -- for two to three days. No longer. Then cease all consumption for seven days. Repeat. This is like prevention if you are exposed."
Their "treatment" protocol is: "If you have symptoms, take 1 ml., three times per day for anywhere from five to fifteen days. Then recover with iron supplementation. Do not take citrus during the days that one is taking chlorine dioxide because it neutralizes it."
This should be investigated for veracity.
