Historical Use

Hydrochloric Acid is an important ingredient needed for the health of the body. Click photo to enlarge.

Increasing the amount of Hydrochloric Acid by various means (oral, topical, intravenous and intramuscular) had been used very successfully in the 1920’s and 1930’s for a variety of lymph stasis diseases including infection, tissue degeneration and cancer.  Dr. Burr Ferguson and Dr. Walter Bryant Guy pioneered the use of this therapy and reported their results in a periodical open to ‘alternative’ approaches called The Medical World.  When Dr. Ferguson began treating many kinds of bacterial infections successfully with intravenous infusion of 10cc of 1 in 1000 hydrochloric acid, he tried to publish his findings but no interest was shown in this cheap effective cure.

(The reader must understand that cheap effective cures compete with money making drugs and the livelihood of many, so the info is often suppressed or the remedy maligned.  This remedy was slowly passed around by word-of-mouth, and now quickly via the internet.  Dr. Ferguson was approached by a large pharmaceutical company and offered a large sum of money to cease his efforts to present his results to the medical community.  This background info is to preempt this question:  “Well if  Hydrochloric Acid Therapy is so effective, why isn’t everyone using it?  Or, why haven’t I heard of it?”  Simply put, for financial reasons this remedy, like many others, is maligned or banned or ignored by the medical establishment.)
 

Hydrochloric Acid is an important natural constituent of the body.

From his many experiences Dr. Guy formulated a theory that most disease conditions, acute infections, anemias, metabolic disturbances and malignant cell overgrowths are the direct result of blockage of the lymph channels.  Dr. Ferguson found that intravenous injections of dilute Hydrochloric Acid stimulated phagocytosis which cleaned up the stagnant lymph pond of the body and produced spectacular recoveries from apparently hopeless cases without harming the patient!!  Case histories of successful cures include cancer (brain, prostate, skin, and colon), tumors or growths, pulmonary tuberculosis, convulsions, chronic bronchitis, migraines, tonsillitis, pneumonia, malaria, acne, bed sores, elephantiasis, and so on.  Many of these, including cancer are a result of long-standing congested lymph channels.  The result is a reduced nutrient supply to the involved tissues (resulting in lowered function and even localized necrosis and resultant infection), and accumulation of cellular wastes (resulting in swelling, weight gain and the formation of cysts and tumors and cancer).  Analysis of blood samples after diluted Hydrochloric Acid injections showed that blood oxygen levels increased drastically, increases in red blood cell and white cell counts, increased phagocytosis (removal of dead tissue, and other debris) all of which resulted in the cure of the disease.  More documentation is preserved in this pdf entitled Three Years of HCl Therapy.

 

Some quotes of interest from ‘Three Years of HCl Therapy’

Dr Guy writes, “The world is in sore need of a reliable, effective remedy for cancer and tuberculosis, also a preventive treatment. The writer does not claim that he has a perfected remedy, but he does claim, by repeated proofs, that this [Hydrochloric Acid] solution contains in itself an ability to promptly cause many precancerous lesions to disappear, that cancerous conditions of the internal organs, where other methods are so futile, are and have been dissipated, and that in cases too far advanced for recovery, relief of pain and distress is so marked that such patients believe they will entirely recover.”

“The [Hydrochloric Acid] solution has been proved by the writer to be an effective and curative remedy in many cases of cancerous growths; also it points the way to the etiology of cancer and how cancer may be avoided.”

“It has curative properties in diabetes, tuberculosis and other degenerative diseases.”

“The late Dr. Willy Meyer, of New York City, wrote: “Exact pH measurements have revealed the fact, as shown by the literature, that malignancy is always associated with a high degree of alkalosis, and it has also been shown that the alkalosis precedes the malignancy. There can be alkalosis without malignancy, but it would seem that there can be no malignancy without alkalosis. The more virulent the malignancy, the stronger must be the alkalosis which sustains it.” “  [HCl therapy reverses this.]

So why are people deficient in HCl?  Dr. Guy reports, “What, then, are the causes of its disappearance in the gastric fluid, following eating of food? First, Prof. Austin (author of Manual of Clinical Chemistry) says most conclusively that “hydrochloric acid secretion may be completely suppressed by emotion or worry.””   So addressing this basic cause is found here.

I guess doctors Guy and Ferguson wouldn’t think too highly of our acid-blocker therapies like Prilosec, Zantac and Nexium, etc.  Their conclusions seem to implicate such therapies as promoting cancer and degenerative disease.

Intravenous HCl was administered most commonly at the 1:1000 dilution.  Intramuscularly both 1:1000 and 1:500 were used.  Often, until a physician became comfortable, 1:1500 was used (of stock 35% HCl).
Laboratory grade 10% HCl may be found at educational and scientific websites.  One can also obtain it from hardware stores (muriatic acid, usually 35%) but because those applications of muriatic acid do not require high standards of purity, it may be advisable to use a laboratory grade.   Using a 10% HCl,  1:1500 corresponds to about 5 drops of 10% HCl in about 1/2 cup water; 1:1000 corresponds to about 8 drops of 10% HCL in 1/2 cup water; 1:500 corresponds to about 16 drops of 10% HCL in 1/2 cup water.  The amount injected was about 10 cc’s.

 

Naturopathic Application of Hydrochloric Acid Therapy

Applications of Hydrochloric Acid therapy consistent with traditional naturopathy are the oral administration used by Dr. Guy et al. and the topical administrations used and reported by many doctors of that time and outlined in the above document and summarized below.  Rectal implants have recently come into use and are also very effective.

 

Oral Dosage

Dr. Guy recommended 5-20 drops of a 3% Hydrochloric Acid solution 3 to 6 times daily well diluted.  ‘Well diluted’ means that the 3% Hydrochloric Acid drops MUST be added to a minimum of 1/2 cup of water (in a glass container) before drinking.  A greater dilution may also be used, for example the 20 drops of 3% may be added to 1 cup or more of water.  At these dilutions the Hydrochloric Acid tastes like diluted unsweetened lemon juice.

But don’t worry about exact percentages.  As a guide for you, I can comfortably sip on 15 drops of my 10% HCl in 1/2 cup of water (about 1:500).   That strength would correspond to about 4 drops of the 35% HCl, or 30 drops of the 5% HCl, or about 50 drops of Dr. Guy’s 3% in the same amount of water.  One poster below uses 10 drops of his 35% HCl in a full glass of water which he measures has a pH above 4, which is less acidic than lemon juice or vinegar or apples.  If this whole idea makes you nervous (as it did me at first), begin with 1 drop in 1 cup of water, stir with a non-metallic utensil (I use the eye dropper) and sip.  Increase by one drop at a time and sample until it is to your liking.  I encourage you to write down your findings or ask questions by posting below.

You should use distilled water but set the water out overnight in a warm environment uncovered to allow some of the soluble volatiles to escape.  (This is why the pH of purchased distilled water is greater than 7 when just opened.  Volatile substances that evaporate before water in the distilling process are often captured and redissolved in the distillate if not allowed to exit first.  This is quickly eliminated by boiling your distilled water uncovered for a minute or so.)  You shouldn’t use water with lots of dissolved solids in it as the HCl may react with those and lessen its therapeutic value.

As far as Dr Guy’s daily oral dose of HCl (20 drops of 3%, taken 3 to 6 times/day, which is 60-120 drops daily), in other HCl concentrations this works out to

Dr Guy’s total daily dose of HCl
(well diluted, may be in divided doses)
HCl concentration in percentage (%)
60 drops 3% HCl
36 drops 5% HCl
18 drops 10% HCl
5 drops 35% HCl

These number of drops can be put into a comfortable amount of water and sipped throughout the day.  When taken orally HCl contributes to improved breakdown of protein products in the small intestine, which reduces hunger and helps with blood sugar regulation.  Then it is absorbed into the lymph system where it clears up cellular debris in the channels back to the circulation.  The portal vein will carry HCl from the digestion to the liver where it can relieve lymphatic congestion there.  HCl has an affinity for the lymph channels where it breaks down proteins (hydrolysis) that clog the lymph!!!  Remember, worry supresses our own production of HCl.

The medical doctors using HCl therapy so successfully began adding mineral chlorides and then used the term ‘mineral acids’ because they found that the addition of other mineral chlorides gave better results.  One such additive which is easily available to all, and the most well-spoken of is Potassium Chloride (KCl).  The herbalist John Christopher echoed their findings saying that cancer, tumors and cysts cannot exist in a body well-supplied with potassium.  KCl is a salt substitute found in most grocery stores under the name Nu-Salt or No-Salt.  Read the label.  You can add 1/8 teaspoon to 1 cup water to which your HCl was added.

 

Topical Application

Topical applications of the HCl were done at the 1:500 and 1:250 dilution. These were swabbed into orifices to successfully resolve itching ears, nose sores/polyps and skin epitheliomas. Fomentations (bandage soaked in dilute HCl and applied) were made for burns and reportedly stopped the pain immediately. These solutions were also sprayed onto the skin to resolve boils, skin ulcerations or other lymphatic congestion and in the sinuses to relieve congestion (may sting).  Dilute HCl was considered a very effective antiseptic as these applications were typically used to address infections or to avoid infection in the cases of burns. You can make this yourself.
First, stock lab concentrations of HCl are about 35% concentration.  A 1:500 dilution would be about a .07% and a 1:250 would be a .15% dilution.
To make a cup (236 ml) of the 1:500 strength (.07%) from a 10 % HCl solution.  (Using the dilution rule)
10% x Vol HCl = .07% ( 236 ml H20 + Vol HCl )
9.93 Vol HCl = 16.52
Vol HCl = 1.66 ml

Using the accepted conversion of 20 drops per ml, that would be 33 drops of 10% HCl in one cup (236 ml) of distilled water to make the 1:500 topical dilution. To make the stronger 1:250 dilution, double the amount of drops in the same amount of distilled water, or, use the same amount of 10% HCl drops in 1/2 cup water. Remember that Hydrochloric Acid even though very dilute, will react with metals so avoid contact with metal containers, utensils, measuring devices or jewelry.

 

Rectal HCl Retention

HCl may be dosed rectally using a common syringe (20 cc), a tip designed for that purpose, OR a short length of polyethylene tubing (3/16 ID, 5/16 OD) which can fit on the end of the syringe. Cut tubing to a 4-5 inch length and soften the end to be inserted using heat. (I used a grill lighter flame for a few seconds and molded the end. Click photo to enlarge.

The ‘whats’ and ‘hows’ of retention enemas or implants, is described in detail in this post.   Basically this is a dilution of HCl that is inserted rectally and held until it is absorbed by those tissues.  A poster (below) uses 3-4 drops of his 35% HCl in about 4 teaspoons (20 cc) of distilled water and uses a rectal syringe to administer that small amount.  He credits this practice with putting his leukemia in remission.  So 3 drops of 35% HCl would correspond to 10 drops of 10% HCl or 20 drops of 5% HCl in the same amount of water.  To begin you should try a lower dosage to make sure it is comfortable.

The HCl is absorbed by the protal vein and goes to the liver where it improves any lymphatic stagnation in that area.  It also enters the lymph system of the lower pelvic cavity, breaking any large proteins that are clogging the lymph flow up the main return.

To make the solution draw up the 20 cc’s of distilled water into the syringe and then place that amount of water into a small empty (shot) glass.  Add the HCl drops, stir (with the glass dropper), and then draw up the solution back into the syringe.  Add the tip and then implant and retain as described in more detail at this link.

    The Cellular Debris Remover formulas are no longer available at the store. Can I make my own? Can you supply a recipe?

    • PatBlockND says:

      First you need a 10% solution of HydroChloric Acid (HCl). Here is one source. (High school chem labs would have this too.)
      http://www.sciencecompany.com/Hydrochloric-Acid-10-solution-500ml-P6533.aspx

      To make 500 mL (about 2 cups) of a 3% solution, place 350 mL of water in a glass beaker or graduated cylinder and slowly add 150 mL of 10% HCl.

      To make the .076% takes 2 steps of dilution, 0.5% then to 0.076%.
      To make 500 mL of a .5% solution, place 475 mL of water in a beaker or graduated cylinder and slowly add 25 mL of 10% HCl.
      To make 500 mL of a .076% solution, place 424 mL of water in a beaker or graduated cylinder and slowly add 76 mL of the .5% HCl you made in above.
      You can obtain the graduated cylinder from the same source as above.

        Hello Dr. Block and Everyone!!!

        The Science store HCL is in a plastic bottle. Do you think that is a concern for using it internally? The brand in glass that I was using seems to be unavailable these days..

        Thanks!!!

        Muysana

        • PatBlockND says:

          Hey Muysana,
          I seem to remember from chemistry that the bottles these came in were chemically inert, meaning that the HCl does not react with the container. If it did react with the container, not only would that be dangerous, but you may get some unexplained results in your high school chemistry experiments. That said, there is ALWAYS some minute reaction between a container and its contents, even glass. I personally have no problem using/diluting the HCl in the bottle it comes in.
          Pat

  2. Bonita Poulin says:

    Thanks for the recipe. That supplier doesn’t ship to Canada. :-(

  3. I wonder if you could check my conversion numbers please?
    I bought a 5% solution of Hydrochloric acid and would like to make small solutions of 1:1500 since my measuring equipment is small. Here is what I figured:
    148 ml Distilled water + 2ml of the 5% solution = 150ml .066666% solution
    Is that correct?
    Thanks for your help!

  4. Thanks for you help!

  5. I started out injecting the 1:1500 solution into (butt) muscle and then went to a 1:1000 solution. However, whatever I injected did not disperse, but instead remained as a lump. Yesterday I decided to try applying it topically. I am amazed at how much more beneficial this method seems to be. I never noticed much from the injections, apart from getting lumps, but since starting the topical applications, I did notice more energy, almost immediately, as well as a feeling of well being! I’m impressed!
    I do have one question though. Why do you specify removing all jewellry? My rings don’t come off any more! Will it hurt the rings or transport impurities into my body? Please clarify.

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey Bonita,
      Drs. Ferguson and Guy mostly did intravenous injections of HCl which I
      would not venture w/o the help of a physician who has experience with
      this therapy.
      The experience you had of creating ‘lumps’ may be indicative of poor
      lymphatic drainage.  This explains why you got such good
      results topically.
      For other supportive lymphatic remedies
      please consult that post.
      Acids corrode jewelry so I would keep them away from your HCl.
      Pat

      • PatBlockND says:

        I found this info in rereading the HCl document. “Since this measure had the affect of stimulating the defense mechanisms of the blood, it is plain that the sudden increase of phagocytes at the focus of infection will be followed by the formation of pus, which, after all, is but an effort on the part of nature to attack invading bacteria. Should this sudden increase of the defense forces take place in an area where the drainage is poor, an abscess may result.”

  6. Thanks Pat. I read of other doctors of the time doing mostly IM injections, which made me think I could do that too. An interesting side effect is that the day after the injection in my butt muscle, I was having a boil develop a few inches away on my thigh. I haven’t had any more of these boils since I started using the HCI topically.
    I didn’t see any points for draining my butt muscle lumps on your chart, but it occurred to me that perhaps I should use my LL Laser on those boil sites. I did breifly scan some of the bumps once with a spread laser beam, but saw no effect. Perhaps longer or repeated applications would get rid of them. I will experiment with it to see what happens. Thanks for your help!

    • PatBlockND says:

      Bonita,
      I have found that if the lateral superior pelvic rim is tender, then the ab and butt area are not draining. Is that the case? This isn’t a Chapman reflex per se, just one I happen to find. I’m preparing a post with other NLDPs for weight loss. Chapman drained specific organs.

  7. David Hallgarth says:

    I began using one to five hundred mix of HCl, sub q, and the results were noticed.
    However as the other poster mentioned, I began getting lumps, no dispersion of the mix.
    I had an MD appointment some ten days after starting. Doc noticed my blood/oxygen level was one hundred percent, up from a normal ninety percent.
    I purchase muriatic acid aka hydrochloric acid (HCl), thirty five percent, from Home Depot. I mix twenty cc’s of distilled water, from wally world, and three to four drops of HCl concentrate, and inject it as a retention enema.
    I erred some time ago with warm water and bicarb soda, took too much as an enema, saw flashing lights, but feel sure anything taken as an enema goes directly into the blood stream, the soda raised my blood pH, I will guess, and caused my problem. However we live and learn. It took more than twelve hours of bed rest for me to feel like walking again.
    Anyhoo, the HCl put my leukemia in remission, my interleukin receptor tests indicated seven thousand, which is indicative of leukemia activity. and I was rapidly approaching chemo stage.
    My white blood count is twenty five hundred, if I do nothing to support it, so I took HGH to raise it to four thousand, but that’s expensive, so started LDN, which did the same thing, HCl took it to six thousand.
    I put my leukemia in remission, but was still left with a systemic candida infection, for that I used a cup of raw beet juice, a cup of fennel juice, half cup of celery, half cup of carrots, kicked the candida out.
    I also like twelve grams of ascorbate acid and twenty four hundred mgs of lecithin, that is three teaspoons C, two teaspoons of lecithin. really great stuff, the oil really helps c get into our cells.
    My background is in Nutrition/Dietetics, retired now, but oil will really work synergistic with water soluble supplements, etc. as to getting into the body.
    So I take olive oil, butter oil, fermented cod liver oil with water soluble supplements. david lubbock tx.

    • PatBlockND says:

      David,
      Thanks so much for sharing your interesting case history. Would you be willing to break down your HCl protocol kitchen-style? (20 cc=4 teaspoons; and readers should be aware that metal spoons/utensils cannot be used with HCl) For example, when you say “HCl concentrate” are you referring to the 35% from Home Depot? So do we understand correctly that 3-4 drops of 35% HCl is added to 4 teaspoons distilled water and injected rectally and retained?
      Are you doing this now and getting the same results as your subcutaneous injection?
      Pat

  8. David Hallgarth says:

    For what it’s worth department, I took a quart and half of foodstuffs, and had to add two ounces of HCl concentrate to it, to reach a 3 pH. This is normal for our stomach to do after each meal, to begin digestion. Most folks are not aware, it the amount of HCl in our stomach that dictates, how much bile, digestive enzymes, how many neurotransmitters are produced, serotonin, dopamine etc.
    Also our immune system is manufactured in our digestive tract, exactly how the proper amount of HCl affects this, I do not know.
    I have attempted betaine HCl, after meals, but about ten drops of HCL concentrate, thirty five percent works so much better.
    Colostrum and Bee Propolis are both very helpful for colds and flu, but somehow HCl dictates our immune system and feelings of well being.
    Current research tells us, stress causes cell inflammation, and fifteen minutes of meditation can change that, the Swedes have found that depression is caused by blood inflammation, so Dr. Ferg, may have known, HCl activates the lymph system, and clears blood inflammation to relieve depression. That could be true in my case, but anyhoo, my life is a bowl of cheerio’s with HCl, beet juice and vitamin C, david lubbock tx.

  9. David Hallgarth says:

    Pat I use pH stix, from the garden center, ten drops of HCl concentrate in a full glass of water, measures out above pH 4, anything less than 4, can burn.
    I use HCL from home depot, it is thirty five percent concentrate, aka muriatic acid.
    About twenty dollars a gallon, should last forever.
    I take from the gallon and put an ounce of HCl concentrate in an old iodine bottle with a dropper, seems to work well.
    I cannot say how much HCl is too much, I take the retention enema daily, I use a twenty cc syringe, works great, I pull just less than twenty cc’s, put in a small container, add the drops of HCl concentrate and mix. Most would find four drops would burn, so start with three or less, and use after a BM is best.
    I juice my beet juice etc and add eighteen drops of HCL concentrate, about 5 pH, so safe to drink, and adds a slight lemony taste. Very acceptable to the taste.
    I thought I may not require the enema, since I was using it in my beet juice and taking it after meals, but after a few days, I found it helpful to go back and do the retention enema. It works much better than sub q injections.
    I began life as a medic in the military, so IV is not difficult, but the retention enema is much faster, just a few seconds, using the syringe, the liquid remains inside well, and dissipates within ten or fifteen minutes. The body seems to like it, we do have two sphincter muscles back there so insert the syringe a couple inches.
    It actually took me some six months to start Dr. Ferg protocol on HCl, as like me, most cringe when HCl is mentioned, but no reason. HCl has a tremendous health potential, and something we can do at home, and I have found no side affects, david lubbock tx.

  10. David Hallgarth says:

    Sorry forgot, the retention enemas can be stopped and started at any time.
    However taking HCl orally, gradually withdraw, as our body becomes accustomed to it, so you will be reminded if you stop, especially after meals, I actually carry an iodine bottle, one ounce with me, if I am traveling, so I can add the drops to my drink, generally lemon water after a meal. If I don’t take it, I feel bloated.
    david lubbock tx.

  11. David Hallgarth says:

    My doc surprised me with a PSA test to look for prostate cancer. Most docs including mine are not aware of what they really are, not but how much activity is going on there, I had sex the night before, which will double the test numbers. I feel it is reasonable to assume many prostates have been cut out, by a fast moving Uro surgeon, his bread and butter, from not following general guidelines in taking the test. Whoops my doc called with me to visit my Uro after she got the test, I was alerted to what the results may be, so a little nervous I was. My Uro told me my PSA has dropped to four. My normal is seven with leukemia, so most likely w/o any prior activity, it would have been lower, and I attribute that to HCl therapy. So again HCl therapy seems to have great health benefits.
    david lubbock tx.

  12. This is very interesting. Thanks for posting it David!
    I haven’t checked the pH of my 1:1000 solution, but I do have some test strips, so I will test it and post it here. From what I read, the 1:1000 solution is what we naturally make inside us, so that is what I worked up to. I am currently applying 10cc to my body every morning. I have thought of trying a 1:500 solution topically, but have not yet. I’ve also wondered if mixing in a bit of DMSO would be beneficial.
    I have noticed slightly more energy since I started using HCI topically. This translates into less left sided partial paralysis, so I can walk a bit better. I have noticed my facial palsy is not as noticeable either. I am hoping that over time these conditions may improve more. I am getting large boils on my thighs every few days again, which I believe is toxins coming out. This started when I was injecting but continues with the topical applications. I have also noticed my blood looks better i.e. not so much rouleau when I look at it under my microscope. Coagulation has always been a problem for me, probably Lyme related.
    I also take my solution orally. Three times per day I take 3 eyedroppers in a bit of water, followed by homeopathic mineral salts.

  13. Hi Pat,
    Sorry I didn’t answer your previous questions but I did not see them until now. My lateral superior pelvic rim is not tender, only the lumpy areas where I injected are. I’ve tried using my laser and LEDs on the lumps a few times, but they have not decreased. I’m not able to excercise but do use a Chi machine everyday, plus lately I’ve been rifing with frequencies to stimulate my lymphatics as well. So far, the lumps still remain though.

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey Bonita,
      The devices you mention may work well on the nodal structures of the lymph but not the tissue you describe with the lumps. For those, use a rotation massager BETWEEN the lump and the closest nodal collection, eg. the inguinal nodes. Other kinds of massagers may also work but it is important to shake the tissue w/o force or contact, and it should dissipate nicely. Also herbal remedies like Burdock, or NSP’s I-X formula resolve boils nicely for my people.
      To rebuild the nerves consider a nerve glandular. I have used Neurotrophin from Std Process with good results.

  14. Thanks Pat. I tested the pH of my 1:1000 HCI solution. My test strips only go from 5.5 to 8. My result was below 5.5 but I don’t know how much but it was the same colour as my urine pH test that I did at the same time.

  15. Muysana says:

    Hello Dr. Block! Thank you for sharing this HCL info! I have the N……..ogy 1:500 hcl.. The bottle reads:”Hydrochloric Acid 1:500 in water (0.06 %)
    1 ounce = 18 mg HCL and 30 ml of water)”

    I want to switch to the brand from the science store, 10 % . I am happy with the dosage I’m using but I do not know how to compare the two products. one is 10 % and the other is saying it is .06 of 1 %???

    How can I make the science store % equal the N……logy brand’s 1:500?

    Thanks!!!

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hello Muysana,
      To make a .06% solution from a 10% solution the rule is
      (%)(V1) + (%)(V2) = (%)(V1 + V2)

      V1 is the volume of 10% HCl and V2 is the volume of distilled water and the % are the percentages of HCl. We have 10% (0.1) and want .06% (.0006). So
      (0.1)V HCl + (0.0)V H2O = .0006 (V HCl + V H2O)

      So if you wanted to make the 500 mL amount that company sells..
      (0.1)V HCl = .0006 (V HCl + 500mL)
      (0.1)V HCl = .0006 V HCl + 0.3
      (.0994)V HCl= .3
      V HCl= 3.0 mL
      3 mL is a little more than ½ teaspoon (0.6 teaspoon). So fill your 500mL bottle with distilled water and let it sit open over night. Add a rounded (inverse miniscus) ½ teaspoon of 10% HCl using a non-metallic measuring spoon or any utensil that will measure 3 mL. If you were able to obtain a 5% HCl solution, then add twice that amount of 5% HCl (6 mL to your 500 mL distilled water).
      Now please let us know how is that solution is helping you.
      Pat

        Thanks Dr. Block!!!

        I need to order some items from the Science store and I will let you know how it turns out.

        Thank you very much!!!

        • Muysana says:

          Hello Dr. Block and Everyone!

          I apologize for not replying sooner! Using Kinesiology, I decided to use 10 cc of the HCl diluted every other day. After about 3 weeks, I only needed to use it once a week or less. So I am still on the same bottle of N…….gy HCl and I have 2 unopened bottles. I never needed to order any from the Science store although I MUST have some of those beakers!!! LOL Best wishes to all!!!

  16. Deborah says:

    Should I be concerned with harming my teeth when drinking the HCL at the recommended dilutions? I have heard to drink it with a straw.

    • PatBlockND says:

      Yes Deborah you can drink it through a straw but at the dilution given it is less acidic than lemon juice. I drink it through the same kind of tubing used for plumbing ice makers (also shown with items for rectal implants.) You can also swish with water afterwards.

  17. Bonita Poulin says:

    Thanks Pat for posting more info on the topical and enema uses of HCI. The next time I get a boil or abcess, I will try topical HCI for that too!
    I am still applying 10cc of 1:500 HCI solution topically every morning as well as drinking a half glass of water with 4.5 cc of this same solution three times per day, followed by a homeopathic combination of all 12 of Schuessler’s Cell Salts.
    Ingredients: Homeopathic Combination of: Calcarea Fluorica 6X, Calcarea Phosphorica 3X, Calcarea Sulphurica 3X, Ferrum Phosphoricum 3X, Kali Muriaticum 3X, Kali Phosphoricum 3X, Kali Sulphuricum 3X, Magnesia Phosphorica 3X, Natrum Muriaticum 6X, Natrum Phosphoricum 3X, Natrum Sulphuricum 3X, Silicea 6X in a base of lactose USP.
    I continue to realize a bit more energy from this protocol.
    The lumps I had from injecting HCI in my butt muscle are slowly diminishing, perhaps due to topical application and message of those areas. I have also started doing doorknob rope exercises every morning because I was concerned about the atrophe in my left arm and leg. I started out only able to do 5 repititions but am now up to 35. I have noticed an easier time climbing stairs, probably because of increased muscle.

    If HCI is so reactive with metals, will it react with fillings in teeth, most people have them, or if someone has taken silver or has other unknown deposits of metal in their body?

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey Deb,
      Remember first that this is dilute HCl, the pH of which (depending on the dilution) is like that of lemon juice. It will react with any metal in the mouth as any acid will – tomato sauce, apples, etc. But sours, as a class of foods in our diet, are VERY important to thin the bile, lymph and blood so we must have them. Drinking dilute HCl through a straw will avoid direct contact and swishing with water afterwards should remove most residue.
      As far as the ‘silver’ fillings, there are microbes in the gut that can remediate Hg residue in the lumen. You can also do a little chelation with food.

    Hello Pat,
    This is a great discussion. Is the NSP PDA comparable at all to this therapy? And if so how much and when would you take it?
    Thank you

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey John,
      One of the posters on this topic said he did not get the same beneficial effects from the betaine hydrochloride (like NSP’s PDA) as he did from drinking the diluted HCl.

    Could a person just open up an HCL capsule and add it to a little water and do a retention enema? I already take HCL with protein as I am very low in it and have had chronic fatigue syndrome severe, for 28 years.
    Thanks
    lynn

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey Lynn,
      Hydrochloric acid is a liquid. It wouldn’t come in a capsule form. What you may be thinking of is Betaine hydrochloride which is different. One poster below gets better results taking the HCl drops than he does with betaine hydrochloride – orally. I have no experience nor have I heard of anyone doing a betaine hydrochloride retention enema.
      I wrote a post on what my sick clients taught me about fatigue with lots of links to various remediations. Hopefully you will find helpful info there.

  21. Fantastic info guys! Have used HCl clinically for some time after reading “Three Years of HCl Therapy” Nutricology took their product off the market so had to figure DIY protocol. Using muriatic acid from Home Depot with great results. HCl can be nebulized to treat asthma and upper respiratory infections. Most recently,using it ti treat the pertussis outbreak.

    • PatBlockND says:

      Thanks Dr Mitchell,
      Would you mind sharing what dilution of HCl you are using for nebulizing? My people have had good results with an atomizer and straight Colloidal Silver. I’ve tried HCl with unimpressive results, but maybe I need a different dilution. We’d appreciate knowing any other applications with which you have had success.

    Dear Pat,

    I do not know, if you have received my mail. I want to take the opportunity to post you my question regarding the HCl (hydrochloric acid therapy).

    1. Question:

    I would like order from a compounding pharmacy sterile injection ampule of HCL dilute 1:500 per sterile ampule of 2ml for (IM) intramuscular injection. What should be the base of the HCl in percentage, is it pure or 10% or 35 %, could you please advice me on right % to prepare the prescription?

    2. Question:

    A HCL dilute 1:500 has a range pH scale of 1.3 , does it really cause a problem when such a acidic substance is injected at this pH range? Is it true that this acidic pH could be life-threatening?

    I thank you for your support.

    Regards,
    A.M.

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey A.M.,
      We are fortunate to have the many posts of those who are using intramuscular HCl injections in the comments section. Did you read over those? I don’t do injections but others who do have reported their concentrations in the comments section. If you don’t find all your answers there, please let me know. I can put you in touch with some of these people with more experience than I with injections.
      Pat

      • A. MOTTE says:

        Pat, thanks for your comment. I would appreciate if you could get me in touch with David Hallgarth or you could mail me his phone number.

        Basically, a pharmacist is going to prepare me some 2ml HCL sterile ampules of 1:500, but in your opinion what should be the base 2%, 5% or 35%?

        Thanks for your support.

        A.M.

        • PatBlockND says:

          Hello A.M.
          If I understand your question correctly, the concentration you begin with does not matter. It only determines how much you need to dilute it to arrive at the desired strength (in your case 1:500).
          Since the normal stock concentration that labs have on hand is 35%, the 1:500 simply means 1 part HCl (at 35%) to 500 parts distilled water. If you start with another concentration, say 10% or 5%, the dilution would be changed by a factor of 3.5 or 7 respectively to get the desired concentration of 1:500.
          I have contacted David H on your behalf.
          Pat

          • A. MOTTE says:

            Thanks Pat, now I understand the facts about the concentration. Does David going to contact me or do I have to mail him?

            thanks again,
            A.M.

    Hi Pat, I’m wondering if you think HCL therapy would be effective for getting rid of HPV?

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey JD,
      From my readings on case histories in the HCl document, I think it would be successful with the intravenous application – which I don’t do.
      Another approach which I have found to work with my clients is to help the liver balance the terrain so tissue is not vulnerable. And if you find someone who does the intravenous both therapies are compatible. However, improving liver function does many things for your well being that HCl therapy may not do.

  24. mike says:

    If we’re trying to get HCL into the lymph, wouldn’t soaking in bath water work? Would soaking be help full in addition to the enema or redunent, get wasting time. Any idea on concentrations of HCL into a bath tub of water?
    Thanks, mike

    • PatBlockND says:

      Hey Mike,
      I guess you could approximate the volume of a tub or count the number of gallons of distilled water you put into it. But the most likely spots to benefit from topical application are the locations of the nodes. They are shown throughout this post. I have found that a dilution of even 1:125 has not hurt my skin. For example, I have put 21 drops of 10% HCl into a 2 oz dropper bottle and applied this topically with no irritation at all. However, a soaked compress secured to these sites may cause some irritation manifesting as itching. So at the first sign of itching I would remove the compress to another lymph node site.
      Keep in mind that this dissolved debris is going to the liver and I’d advise you to check out this post as the problem may manifest in the lymph but not originate there.

    Hi Pat,

    Hi Pat, I have 2 questions…How would one know this is working? What should I feel if it’s “too much” or not diluted enough? I am starting today with 18 drops of 10% HCl, purchased from your link, in 3 cups distilled water with 1/4 tsp Nu-Salt. My presenting issues are anemia, insomnia and receding gums. Ten years ago I had a mercury amalgam placed and quickly removed, however my health has been an uphill climb ever since. I’m attempting this HCl therapy as I’ve been told my stomach acid is low and contributing to my inability to absorb iron (and assuming most other nutrients). God Bless and thank you for the wonderful work you do. Jen

  26. Mark St. John says:

    Hi Pat, I just came off a 6 week HCL Betaine Therapy. Now i am doing the 10% HCL orally and rectal implants. The question i have is: How often can i do an implant? I noticed the only frequency mentioned here was “Often”
    I started with 7 drops of 10% to 4 teaspoons of water and am now at 10 drops. Yesterday i did 3 implants but want to be sure i am not over doing it or under doing it. I believe in doing “therapeutic” amounts of anything and want to receive maximum benefits. THANK YOU

    • PatBlockND says:

      The only reason to do ““therapeutic” amounts of anything and want to receive maximum benefits” is if you are in a crisis or apparent near end of life situation. Be gentle with your body AND be patiently consistent. It has its own time dependent processes which happen in intelligent order and it goes better if we submit to this.
      You can use your symptoms to determine frequency of application. I don’t think daily is too much. So do you feel you received benefit from the ’6 week HCL Betaine Therapy’? Can you tell us if/how?
      Pat

  27. Mark St. John says:

    Hi Pat.. i was wondering if you could tell me how often an implant can be done. I am drinking the 10% and have done a few implants since i received my HCL. The only information i could find here was doing them “Often” and of course the great information with amounts & measurements. Can you help?
    THANK YOU!

  28. Mark St. John says:

    Hi Pat, Thank you for your reply. I hear you saying to use intuition and symptoms, is the best way to determine the plan, to which i would have to agree. and after seeing my doctor…he had said that once daily was sufficient… the 3 i was doing was too much. I am intentional in avoiding that “crisis” you speak of, tho i do have hep c and everything i am doing is leading to the healing of that. The chemo was a racket and crashed me for 1.5 years with 33 side effects and didn’t kill the virus because they had to take me off because it wasn’t responding the way they thought best and too many side effects!

    I’d love to share about the betaine. The immediate and traceable results are: My energy increased drastically. I’m going on my 4th week of 13-15 hr days of work and activity and am sleeping better too. My tumescence increased. One side of my prostate was harder than the other and is now normal.
    There are other factors with contribute to the picture. For example…. i cut back on my coffee consumption ( i think this helped the energy as well. I was doing prostate massages which i believe helped with the fibrose area of my prostate or a possible infection. I was peeing 2-3 times a night and now its 1-2.
    I haven’t had heartburn in over 2 months and it was really bad. I also took coral ledge too, which contributes, and again, cutting back on coffee.
    Under the darkfield microscope my blood has improved, not as much yeast and my WBCs look way more aggressive! Another thing worth nothing is before i was only able to do 2 coffee enemas on back to back days…. i have done one 10 days in a row. All in all, i have a greater self connection… something has shifted. That’s the result of treating all four areas. Psyche, Scars and trauma, Biochemistry and flexibility….it was really important to stretch along the way. I want to let you know that this site and all its links have been a great resource…. THANK YOU!

    Regarding the lumps mentioned in a number of posts, have you tried DMSO? It is known for its ability to disperse bruises and swellings. It use to be used in head injuries to prevent swelling of the brain, until they began using cortizone alternatives.
