Miracle Mineral Supplement Reviews, Cures, and Side Effects
MMS, or the Miracle Mineral Supplement, is a beverage product designed by former aerospace engineer, Jim Humble, who has tested his MMS protocol in Malawi and other parts of Africa. Initially used to treat malaria, the manufacturer claims field-tested success in treating and reversing the effects of AIDS, malaria, hepatitis, herpes, tuberculosis, most cancers, and a host of other diseases.
As always, Earth Clinic does not sell herbal remedies or health supplements, but we are always open to spreading the word about promising new treatments that have brought improved health and natural cures to members of our community.
For more information about the MMS protocol, please visit the product website. At present, Earth Clinic Community members are reporting multiple cures, and we have informative listings for a number of health conditions, which you will find below.
|Multiple Cures||7 YEAS|
10/24/2010: Yevisha from Adelaide, South Australia: "I'm wondering how to take mms for allergies. Does anyone have any experience with it? I've read about sinus and colds and how helpful it is. Thanks"Replies
11/25/2010: Zac from Uki, Nsw replies: "You are supposed to wash mms off your skin after about 30 seconds, otherwise it burns you."
01/03/2011: Amy from New York, Ny replies: "I don't have allergies I am sorry.. But I know a lot about them. Do not spray MMS on your skin. Take it orally. Because MMS goes into your body and gets rid of the pathogens that does not belong in your system. If you have allergies find out what you are allergic to.
Try this- Buy some soap nuts use it in your laundry with lavender essential oil and heat essential oil in a burner with some water. Example. My daughter has allergies with dust real bad. I started using lavender essential oils with her and now she does not have a problem with them. I hope this is helpful."
05/27/2011: Jay from Santa Fe, Nm replies: "I see lots of misinformation here. I studied the protocols and learned directly from Jim Humble. You can absolutely spray the mms solution on your skin. It will ONLY kill pathogens and cannot possibly harm healthy cells. That is the 20-drop (activated with citric acid) solution in the 2-ounce spray bottle. You DO NOT have to rinse it off right away, as someone wrote in the feedback here. You can spray it on the skin hourly and rinse it off at the end of the day, before bedtime. Also, I have used the inhalation therapy to eliminate runny nose, post nasal drip, etc. It works immediately and the instructions are on Jim's site jimhumble.biz."
05/28/2011: Paula from Portland, Or replies: "I just received my product and am excited to try and see if something can finally help my chronic sinus infections. The pain and pressure in my head is awful. I read his suggested protocol for inhalation, but my nose is so stuffed I cannot breathe through it. Will taking it orally help or does anyone have any other suggestions? I can sniff a little if I try hard but after reading the warnings am a little cautious. Thanks for your help"
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 08/11/2011: Gary from Sacramento, Ca, Usa replies: "My experience with the external application of MMS is that it will give you a nasty burn. I mixed according to instructions - using only 2 drops of MMS and the citric acid. Be careful with it."
12/20/2011: Boops from Alva, Florida replies: "The spray MMS is mixed at 10 drops MMS and 10 drops 50% citric acid, wait 5 minutes and add 1 ounce water. If you have a 6 ounces spray bottle then mix 6x10 = 60/60 drops, wait 20 sec. and add the 6 ounces water.
You can leave this on your skin, you can also spray on teeth, in mouth, inhale, etc.
The type that needs rinsed of within 2 minutes is just putting the MMS on by itself for bad burns.
If anyone needs help/info on MMS, do not hesitate to ask me."
10/07/2012: Slim2483 from West Sacramento, Ca, USA replies: "Any burn should be sprayed with full strength MMS (no acid added) directly from a small spray bottle. Do not add citric acid or lemon juice at all. If you don't have a spray bottle available apply MMS directly onto the burn, making sure the area is soaked with MMS.
Wait up to five minutes, but no longer before rinsing off. If you fail to rinse off, the burn will continue to hurt. On the other hand if you do rinse within 5 minutes the burn will heal in 1/4 the time normally required to heal. This includes all those terrible skin and flesh burns and it will save lives. The pain should stop immediately or reduce to almost zero within several minutes.
Sunburns should be treated the same way. Spray the red area, wait 1 to 5 minutes, and rinse off. If the area is still sore, in about an hour spray the area again and wait 5 minutes before rinsing off. Remember, do not allow the MMS to stay in place. It must be rinsed off. The pain should be gone in a couple of minutes. Generally two doses will overcome most sunburns, but on rare occasions if the discomfort is not all gone you can use a third dose. Be sure to rinse it off.

07/23/2013: Nil from Potomac, Maryland, United States replies: "For my son allergies are now gone with the use of MMS or CD (chlorine dioxide). This came as a side effect of recovery from Autism (Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD)."
07/24/2013: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Nil, you wrote: "recovery from Autism", how did you do it?"
[SIDE EFFECTS] 11/22/2009: Olga from Nutley, New Jersey, Usa: "Hi, did anybody try MMS to treat allergies? I've been using MMS as a spray on my skin for a week now, but I have a severe reaction. My skin gets irritated and is burning very badly. I'm using 20 drop solution in 2 oz. spray bottle.
So I'm wondering, if anybody has treated allergies with MMS and if anybody has experienced a similar reaction like mine.
Very grateful for response.
01/07/2010: Nnh from Boa, Uk replies: "I used MMS when I had allergies. Do not spray, just take them as per their instruction, mixed with juices or water. It helped me to detox but I also used other detox products such as raw vege/ fruit juices, raw vege and stay away from suger and processed food. Tap water is really bad. Find a better quality water. I hope it helps. I have now cleared allergies totally."
01/26/2010: Sal from Redondo Beach, Ca. Usa replies: "MMS is sodium hypo chloride, 2.85 mg in the human body, primarily in the cerbro spinal fluid.It may be injected into the blood . Bleach is sodium hypo chlorite, cannot be injected, poison.
MMS is not particularly good for allergies because allergies are a reaction to undigested food proteins that have hit the histamine producing mast cells in a cell membrane. Most allergenic people are hypo chlorhydric. Improving digestion is most important.
Digestive enzymes with HCL work better for allergies in most people.
03/05/2010: Steve from Sebring, Florida Usa replies: "Hello,
Actually, MMS is Sodium Chlorite. When activated with an acid, it creates chlorine dioxide. Sodium Hypochlorite is common bleach. Chlorine Dioxide kills pathogens and purifies water through oxidation, like Hydrogen Peroxide. Sodium Hypochlorite disinfects through chlorination. DO NOT TAKE SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE."
[YEA] 09/04/2009: Halo from Salem, Ma: "mms cured my gums, but causes gas in my friend with cancer...
mms at 10 drops with 50 drops of citric acid stopped my bleeding gums. i have a friend who is using it against cancer; shes taking it after her meals as Humble suggested, but shes suddenly getting alot of gas. anyone know why this would be? im wondering if its because this is somehow interfering with the regular absorption of her meal or if it has to do with bacteria being slayed?"Replies
12/01/2009: Amber from Antigua, Guatemala replies: "I have read that gas is a result of the bacteria, microbes, parasites etc being killed off - so I see it as a good thing that she is experienceing this. Continue at the lowest dose your friend can tolerate without causing uncomfortable symptons. With MMS you shouldnt need to suffer - just cut back on the amount of drops ingested"
01/20/2010: Bob from Clearwater, Fl replies: "Jim Humble states clearly many times on his websites that MMS should not be taken with a meal, but only an hour or more before or after."
04/14/2010: Ben from Seneca, Sc replies: "MMS works best on an empty stomach, so I'd suggest to wait about 2 hours after your last meal before drinking mms, or do it first thing in the morning as I do. From my experience it takes about 15minutes for mms to reach the bloodstream (I feel like someone turned up the heat inside my body by a few degree, which lasts about 30min). So, I assume to start eating or drinking whatever you want should be ok after an hour or so. Ever since I take mms, I have not been sick whatsoever... fingers crossed :)"
01/03/2011: Amy from Las Vegas, Nv replies: "From the comment that has been posted is correct. Also make sure she is not taking mms with her medications. Have her take mms with some food in your stomach. And then a hour later have her take her medication."
10/31/2011: Rejuv from Jhb, Gauteng replies: "If the protocols are to take MMS every hour but then you can only eat an hour after or before it is not practical as it would then interupt the protocol??"
12/04/2011: Neb from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada replies: "I just wanted to ad that these Protocols are a guide. A person should use common sense and their own feeling as to what is working and good for them and what not. The main idea is to have MMS going through your body in some regularity so that it will be able to pick, kill and eliminate patogens on it's way. However, different people have different ways of doing things, different habbits and therefore they will have to adjust to a new addition - MMS. I believe that you know best for yourself how much and when to take MMS as long as you try to do it in some kind of regularity. Hope this helps."
[YEA] 10/15/2009: Gean from Salina, Ks: "A few days ago I came down with a cold: - congested sinuses, sore throat, cough, tired. I took 6 drops of MMS, (activated with 1/2 teas. lemon juice, wait 3 min., add 1/2 cup water. Drink.) then an hour later another 6 drops. Went to bed. Next morning I was almost completely well, and about 24 hours later cold was gone.
I have found that when I don't do MMS every day but save it for when I really do get sick, I don't get nauseated and it really helps. I get more nauseated if I keep taking it day after day "whether I need it or not". I probably will start doing the 6 drops and another 6 drops an hour later on a weekly basis, since I find I feel fantastic, like it really cleansed me or something. Not more often than that though."
[YEA] 12/15/2008: Paul from Tucson, AZ: "I would like to know what people think of this stuff besides myself - it cured my cold in a day and a half, it is said to kill all the bugs in your body that does not belong there."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 05/11/2009: Steve Ballan from Detroil, MI USA: "MMS Pros and Cons:
Hello, I can see by reading these posts that people used to think like me 6 years ago -- after 6 years of herx reactions - yes, 6 years and maybe 50 herx reactions I finally figured out my elimination system is absolutely plugged with pathogens - I got on a homeopathic___ Detox Kit for liver, kidney and lymphatic and carry a water bottle with me 24-7 drinking 4 ounces of alkaline water with some greens and lemon juice. Now I am finally getting some headway with 3 drops of MMS per day. If my stomach is not better in 4-6 months will try mastic gum and manuka honey, and maybe nano colloidal silver. Good luck!"
03/03/2010: Francois from East London, Eastern Cape replies: "Hi Steve,
I would highly recommend that you also include raw veggie juicing in your diet and a good quality whey powder. If you're eating meat and processed foods the detox wont be effective, the only way to speed up healing reaction and initiate a healing crisis is to increase metabolic enzyme function, to do this the digestive system needs a break, try going vegetarian for a week, do a liver/gallbladder flush, and plenty veggie juices, also supplement with digestive enzymes between meals and take magnesium and zinc tabs this help the pancreas make more metabolic enzymes. H202 therapy will also stimulate lymph flow which will make the heel detox kit work better. good luck."
[YEA] 06/02/2008: Diana from Auckland, New Zealand: "My husband and I have been taking MMS for just over a week. We have tried all sorts of things for our health before, but this MMS has been the best so far. We started off with 2 drops + 5 drops citric acid + wait 3 minutes then added water. Almost straight away we felt something. It almost felt like we were "out of it". We could feel it moving around the body with obvious sensations. By that evening after having another 2 doses, our eyes felt like they were really wide open. Each day we have been increasing our dose. I got to 5 doses but then felt extremely nauseous and dizzy. So I cut back on the amount. We continue to take it and I am slowly increasing the doseage. We have incredible energy, like never before since taking MMS. My head experiences large moments of clarity instead of the foggy mist it normally feels like. I am very excited about it. My friend who had a sore tooth for quite awhile now, swirled it around in her mouth and straight away the pain went."Replies
[SIDE EFFECTS] 11/08/2008: Ann from Bastrop, Texas replies: "Diane, since your last post was in June of this year, please update us about your experience with MMS. My husband and I have just started this week. I made an error this morning, drinking coffee (no Vit. C) after my 3 drop mixture. BAD stomachache and nausea resulted! Crystallized ginger helped with the nausea, but my stomach is in a terrible knot after six hours."
[WARNING!] 06/06/2012: Lee Ann from Reno, Nv replies: "Speaking of acid reflux, I started taking MMS this morning 6 drops with 3 drops citric acid. After about 15 minutes I felt nauseous for about 10 minutes, not too bad, my stomach was relatively empty.
When I got to work, someone offered me a cup of coffee-bad mistake. I have had such burning in my stomach all day for the past 8 hours. So my recommendation is don't drink coffee within several hours after taking MMS."
08/28/2012: Horeno from London, Uk replies: "You DO NOT know how to use it... It is very clearly written in Jim's book 1 drop of sodium chlorite and 5 drops of citric acid, so do it this way, if you take 3 drops of sodium chlorite then 15 drops of citrc acid... Never other way... Do not hazard with your health."
02/27/2013: Kathleen from Southwick, Ma., Usa: "Dear Ted, I love you and appreciate all the work you do for us out here. my query is: I would love to try MMS, but I know I can't because I have hashimoto's. I pray, maybe you stabilize it with iodine or something, as after 20 yrs of being told I'm depressed (insomnia and crying) I finally got a diagnosis (from a blood test) of two types of lyme disease and an active epstein barr virus. I knew I had osteoporosis, now I have cataracts and kidney stones. I had a bad case of the flu this year and a recurring sinus infection. the doctor has me on so many pills; probiotics, antibiotics, anti viral, anti fungus, vitamins, but things seem to be spiralling out of control. Bad brain fog and panic at times. I get sick sitting in a drafty room. I have brown age spots for many years now, lately, many more, especially if I'm in the sun. I'm only 58 (live in new england). I had to go on disability. with love from the heart. any advice? would like to live again. Sincerely, Kathleen"Replies
02/28/2013: Louwrence from Rustenburg, North West, South Africa replies: "Hi Kathleen, Study THC oil on the net & medical marijuana, plenty of sites on the net."
03/19/2013: Guruamrit from San Francisco, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi Kathleen from Southwick. I recomend you e-mail to Jim Humble's website and ask for a specific protocol for your case. They seem to have updated information on these kind of hard issues. I hope you do get in touch with them and don't give up. I am sure you'll find some if not a lot of benefit with MMS or CDS or one of the variations somehow if you follow the right protocol. But ask them directly, don't give up.. Warmly, Margarita"
01/21/2013: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa: "HI YOU GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , ,
Are you aware that ClO2 is used in the paper induatry as a bleaching agent and made by the thousands of gallons at each mill? Some of you may reconize it as MMS. If you had this compound available to you....... How would you use it? Our gov shut down using Chlorine but Chlorine Dioxide is good. Notice that you can't use Chlorine to bleach pulp any more because it causes cancer , but it's good to go in your drinking water. If you want to figure out all this then bring up the novel Synagogue of Satan on the net. I raise this question because I can get the CLO2 but don't know how to use it for my health. I used it for 40 years in the bleaching of pulp. Without it you would be talking 70 brightness paper instead of 88. For you novices, that newsprint vs letter paper. Tell me how to use this straight ClO2. And I'll dance at you next wedding.
====ROBERT HENRY ======"Replies
01/22/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "R.H., This may be a little off the Jim Humble recommendation, but this is a method I have used several times w/ good results. Make up a batch of Lemonade w/ limited sugar and limited Vit-C (no added C if possible). Make it kinda on the strong side. Simply add 4 drops Sodium Chlorite to a 4oz lemonade, wait 8 min then drink. You will smell and taste the Chlorine, but it's really not too bad at this low dose.
A 4 drop dose 2x daily is a good start, then slowly increase. I am rather steady @ 8drops (without nausea). I have lacked any kind of daily commitment w/ MMS, but I am convinced that it is all it's hyped up to be. It's a much more powerful oxidizer than H2O2, and the Chlorine atom that houses the O is something special. I always feel better and energized fallowing an 8 drop dose."
01/26/2014: Robert Henry from Ten Mile , Tn replies: "HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Not going to rain on Jim Hubbles parade because he found a way to get around our government's control of compounds that can keep you healthy. That compound is Chlorine Dioxide. When I started school in the 40's we had tablets which had a paper brightness of about 70. Now students write on paper in the 90's. Why is that? Well back in Paw Paw's day the paper industry had 3 chemicals to bleach pulp with. That was Chlorine , Sodium Hydroxide and Hypochlorite. That was it. In the early 50's the paper industry came up with Chlorine Dioxide and now folks would not accept less.
Let me draw this out a little . Before the Sulfate Process to dissolve lignin and make paper there was the sulfite process. It was an acid process and one paper mill could produce enough vanilla to supply the world. It never did because it would destroy all the folks making vanilla. One pulp mill today could make enough Chlorine Dioxide to supply the world and solve most of the world's health problems. Why is this not done? First, Big Pharma will not allow this to happen and neither will the AMA. Second behind Energy, is health in our economics. You cure health problems and you destroy our economy. That will not be allowed. Hey, Chlorine Dioxide would also be the end of supplements. Now you are between a rock and a hard place. You have just killed medicine and now you kill Earth Clinic. Yep it's that critical. But never fear, this will never be done. We will always need EC. Everyone looks at the little picture, this is the big picture.
Understand that this is radical, but hope it makes you think. Like I told my buddy Mike 62 in Denver. I am smart, but not so delightful.

01/08/2012: Judy from Torrance, California, Usa: "I have a 3.2 wbc (white blood cell count), 8yrs. osteo/arthritis everywhere, Mac Degeneration 2yrs, no vision loss yet. Possible bone marrow test coming up. I feel at a loss, more med problems appearing. I also have a rescreen Mamo. MMS sounds wonderful as to its' 'miracles'. Has anyone had any success w/any of the probs., I have mentioned? Thank you."
12/13/2011: Kilihunebabe from Seattle, Wa: "Through research on H202, I came across Miracle Mineral Supplement which seems to have the same effect as H202 except it is chlorine dioxide. I didn't see any info on this site, which is my go-to for all things au naturale. Has anyone had any experience with this?"
07/20/2011: Jean from Mitchell, Nebraska, United States: "I am wondering if anyone can tell me if it is ok to take mms in iced tea or in hot peppermint tea?"
04/26/2011: Alicia from Orlando, Fl: "I wanted to post this since MMS is a subject on this site. I just want avoid people doing damage to themselves based on misguided information. This link is from a doctor that is pro-natural healing/supplementation, yet I take this page as a warning. Read and make your own decisions about MMS.
04/27/2011: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "some ppl might be confusing MMS with MSM."
04/27/2011: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hi, Sure hope no one is confusing MMS and MSG.
MSG is methylsulfanylmethane which is one of the best for traumatic arthritis (also helps with allergies and other things) is a substance our bodies require. It is also a great anti-inflammatory without the side effects of the NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
MMS is short for mirace mineral supplement (proper name is sodium chlorite) and it allegedly kills just about all pathogens. If any of you have been reading up on the latest thing coming out of India (allegedly a "gene" that instantly converts all pathogens to drug resistant type. If this is so, we all know that some mad scientists have come up with a new way to reduce the world wide population which is said to be the new world order's greatest desire. Jim Humble claims that there is no way any pathogen can become resistant to MMS. Let's hope he is right and may I suggest that those of you who haven't taken a few precautions, immediately do so, because I fear the NWO is a lot closer than we'd like to think.
If you haven't already done so, get you a few gallons of 35% food grade H202, a few pounds of MMS, a supply of Lugol's solution (15%) or SSKI *saturated solution of potassium iodide). If you find a source of potassium crystals and online source says to mix your own SSKI, fill a brown bottle to about 60% full, next add distilled water to about 90% full, put cap on and shake vigorously for at least 2 minutes. You will know if you have a saturated solution because there should be a few undissolved crystals in the bottom of your bottle. A good supply of these and you should be set to handle many of your own problems without a doctor or hospital. Also suggested is getting a good book on identifi-cation, gathering and preparing herbals that grow in your local area. You will be surprised to learn that many of the best herbals plants are con-sidered as weeds.
PS. If you can't come up with a better way to remember whether you want MSM or MMS - my opinion is that MMS is much easier to pronounce or spell than MSM & maybe remembering to think "mommy, me sick" for MMS will tell you it is the one to use to wipe out an infection."
04/30/2011: Nasira from Springfield, Ma/usa replies: "I think all people should read J Humble's new edition of the MMS book (the 3rd edition). It's on the internet somewhere as a download for free. The understanding and explainations for why it works are great. Do the research and follow the instructions (don't improvise) or drink or eat something you shouldn't then say it does not work or it made me sick... Because that is on you and not the product itself.... The propaganda is out there and TPTB want you under the knife or using drugs that will kill you... make the wise decisions in life.
12/04/2011: Neb from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada replies: "I guess that it is easy to get sidetracked about anything. We are genetically disciplined to listen to what the good doctor is saying. However, now-a-day Doctor is just a copy of a copy of a copy of a Doctor from some 50 year old book together with a recipe for good business. If it hides the symptoms and it sells, then that is the way to go. There are countless testimonials from people all over the Globe saying how MMS helped them in many, many ways. Yes, maybe if you foolishly take 20 drops, have all kind of stomach problems and then again, take another 20 drops then I believe that something is wrong with you - not with MMS. Yes, maybe some people had bad experience because of so many different circumstances and I am sure that the Lady from Dr. Sedura's report died and was also taking MMS.
However, it does not say and is not in any way proven that she died from MMS intake. On the other hand, if someone would collect how many people died from using regular medications and procedures that are approved by FDA, it would probably take a better part of the year and more then ten thousand pages to write them all up. However, these are "well known and approved" way to "cure" different illnesses - although I have yet to find a drug that actually cures anything.
This is my take on the article that Alicia from Orlando, FL is pointing us to."
04/14/2011: Bobbyjo from Jamestown, Pa: "The evidence is abundant and I have experience with mms. Anyone claiming mms to be dangerous is a despicable pharmapuppet."

03/09/2011: Rob from Manhattan, New York replies: "Andrew Weil gives it a big thumbs down. I respect his wisdom and education & tend to agree. The info, here, suggests that it may be effective to rid oneself of worms... I've seen no anecdotal evidence yet of anyone saying it helped or cured more serious illnesses of cancer or hiv. Here is the link: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400765/No-Magical-Cures.html
A friend with Lyme disease tried it with no positive results."
07/17/2012: Peter from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "I was in Nigeria a week ago and I met a doctor who is quietly curing people of the HIV virus using MMS. I say "quietly" as he doesn't want his efforts to be stopped by Big Pharma and their friends."
03/12/2014: Ronald from Lima, Peru replies: "There is no way anyone who is sincere and investigates MMS can deny that it is very effective and has saved many thousands of lives.
Does anyone have information regarding the effect of iodine on MMS? It is important to raise iodine levels using higher doses when fighting cancer. A few people have said that it can reduce the effect of MMS/chlorine dioxide."
03/14/2014: Bill from San Fenando, Philippines replies: "Hi Ronald...Iodine is an anti-oxidant and MMS(Chlorine Dioxide) is a pro-oxidant. So if you combine them or take them at the same time, they will simply react with each other and cancel out each other's beneficial effects. So if you take any anti-oxidant nutrient together with MMS then the same thing will happen.
MMS only lasts for about an hour in the blood before it is quickly removed from the body so the best way to take MMS is to take it in a one to three drop dose, once an hour, eight times a day. You can take it in higher single dosages, but this may cause headaches, nausea and vomiting (similar to large dose HP). The MMS protocol is very similar to the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol -- which only last for about an hour in the body as well because it also has similar pro-oxidant action."
