The therapeutic action of chlorine dioxide is given by its selectivity for pH. This means that this molecule dissociates and releases oxygen when it comes into contact with another acid. When it reacts, it becomes sodium chloride (common salt) and at the same time releases oxygen, which in turn oxidizes (burns) the pathogens (harmful germs) of acidic pH present, converting them into alkaline oxides (“ashes”). 

Therefore, when chlorine dioxide dissociates, oxygen is released into the blood, as do erythrocytes (red blood cells) through the same principle (known as the Bohr effect), which is to be selective for acidity. Like blood, chlorine dioxide releases oxygen when it is acidic, either from lactic acid or from the acidity of the pathogen. 

Its therapeutic effect is due -among others- to the fact that it helps in the recovery of many types of diseases by creating an alkaline environment, while eliminating small acid pathogens, according to my criteria, through oxidation, with an impossible electromagnetic overload. to dissipate by unicellular organisms.

Multicellular tissue, due to its larger size, has a better capacity to dissipate this charge and is not affected in the same way. Biochemistry in turn defines cellular protection through glutathione in cells.

A clear reduction of the necrotic tissue and an amazing recovery can be observed.

Chlorine dioxide, which is the second strongest disinfectant known after ozone, is much more suitable for therapeutic use since it is also capable of penetrating and eliminating biofilm, something that ozone does not do. 

The great advantage of the therapeutic use of chlorine dioxide is the impossibility of a bacterial resistance to ClO2. Although ozone is stronger in antiseptic terms, its high oxidative potential of 2,07 and its short half-life of only 15 minutes at 25 ° C with a pH value of 7,0 make it less effective, for in vivo therapeutic applications. .

Chlorine dioxide is a selective oxidant and, unlike other substances, it does not react with most components of living tissue. Chlorine dioxide does react rapidly with phenols and tyroles essential for bacterial life. 

In phenols the mechanism consists of attacking the benzene ring, eliminating odor, taste and other intermediate compounds.

Chlorine dioxide kills viruses effectively and is up to 10 times more effective (Sanekata T, Fukuda T, Miura T, Morino H, Lee C et al. (2010) Evaluation of the antiviral activity of chlorine dioxide and sodium hypochlorite against feline calicivirus, human influenza virus, measlesvirus, canine distemper virus, human herpesvirus, human adenovirus, canine adenovirus and canine parvovirus. Biocontrol Sci 15/2: 45-49.doi: 10.4265 / bio.15.45. PubMed: 20616431) than sodium hypochlorite (bleach or bleach) that was tested in a comparative (Tanner R (1989) Comparative testing and evaluation of hard-surface disinfectants. J Ind Microbiol 4: 145-154. doi: 10.1007 / BF01569799.)

It also proved highly effective against small parasites, the protozoa. (EPA Guidance Manual, Alternative Disinfectants and Oxidants, Protozoa Inactivation


One issue of great concern to medical professionals in medical scientific terms is the reactivity of chlorine dioxide with essential amino acids. 

In tests on the reactivity of chlorine dioxide with 21 essential amino acids, only cysteine ​​(Ison A, Odeh IN, Margerum DW (2006) Kinetics and mechanisms of chlorine dioxide and chlorite oxidations of cysteine ​​and glutathione. Inorg Chem 45: 8768- 8775. doi: 10.1021 / ic0609554.

PubMed: 17029389.), Tryptophan (Stewart DJ, Napolitano MJ, Bakhmutova-Albert EV, Margerum DW (2008) Kinetics and mechanisms of chlorine dioxide oxidation of tryptophan. Inorg Chem 47: 1639-1647. 

doi: 10.1021 / ic701761p.PubMed: 18254588.) and tyrosine (Napolitano MJ, Green BJ, Nicoson JS, Margerum DW (2005) Chlorine dioxide oxidations of tyrosine, N-acetyltyrosine, and Dopa. Chem Res Toxicol 18: 501-508. doi: 10.1021 / tx049697i. 

PubMed: 15777090) proline and hydroxyproline were reactive with a pH around 6. (Tan, HK, Wheeler, WB, Wei, CI, Reaction of chlorine dioxide with amino acids and peptides, Mutation Research, 188: 259-266, 1987) These amino acids are relatively easy to substitute.

Cysteine ​​and Methionine (Loginova IV, Rubtsova SA, Kuchin AV (2008) Oxidation by chlorine dioxide of methionine and cysteine ​​derivatives to sulfoxide. Chem Nat Compd 44: 752-754. Doi: 10.1007 / s10600-009-9182-8.) they are two aromatic amino acids that contain sulfur, tryptophan and tyrosine and the 2 anorganic ions FE2 + and Mn2 +. Cysteine, due to its membership in the group of thiols, is an amino acid up to 50 times more reactive with all microbe systems than the other four essential amino acids, and therefore it is impossible for it to create resistance against chlorine dioxide. Although not scientifically proven to date, pharmacodynamics usually assume that the cause of its antimicrobial effect is due to its reactions to the four amino acids listed above or protein and peptide residues.

1. Chlorine dioxide is a yellow gas that dissolves easily in water, without altering its structure.

2. It is obtained by mixing sodium chlorite and dilute hydrochloric acid.

2. Chlorine dioxide gas dissolved in water is an oxidant.

3. Chlorine dioxide is pH selective and the more acidic the pathogen, the stronger the reaction.

4. According to toxicological studies by the EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency), chlorine dioxide does not leave residues, nor does it accumulate in the body in the long term.

5. In the process of oxidation it is converted into oxygen and sodium chloride (common salt).

Because chlorine dioxide is an oxidizing agent and a free radical at the same time, it is capable of neutralizing reactive molecules - such as NO, O2-, H2O2, HClO, and OH - that do not contain oxygen and are produced by macrophages. , in response to stress or infection, causing inflammation and pain. Other components that cause pain, such as: Interleukin, or Leukotriene, are also reduced by oxidation. For the disinfection of wounds it is much more appropriate than iodine, since it does not prevent the reconnection of the tissue

  (Kenyon, AJ; Hamilton, S., Wound Healing Studied with Alcide: a Topical Sterilant, Amer.Society of Biol. Chemists 74th Annual Meeting, San Francisco, CA June 5-9 1983.)

In venous blood gas tests it has been possible to confirm the increase in oxygen in the blood, which indicates that it dissociates in case of requiring acids such as lactate, releasing bioavailable molecular O2 without negatively affecting the body and even improving kidney values ​​where a reduction can be seen creatinine in case it is high but not in case it is normal. 

A very significant reduction in lactic acid is also observed in all cases. 

These and many more data irrefutably demonstrate that CDS chlorine dioxide releases useful and bioavailable oxygen by increasing pH, reducing CO2 and lactate significantly, which was reflected in the well-being of the volunteers immediately.
