In reply to Leanne (Ca),

Topical methylene blue is difficult because it stains your skin blue and for that matter, some painted surfaces and stone such as marble so you have to be careful handling methylene blue. If the topical application is for fungus, borax might be worth considering or the borax and diluted hydrogen peroxide which do not stain the skin.

What about putting it on the skin. I am just hearing about the benefits of MB for skincare. Thanks!

I haven't read the instructions, but I am very familiar with vitamin C. Usually vitamin C means Ascorbic Acid. Sodium ascorbate is also called vitamin C - as are all the ascorbates, but the ascorbic acid has been reacted with in this case Sodium and is fully buffered so a neutral pH. This will react different chemically to straight ascorbic acid. In the instructions did they mention which form to use?

Greetings. I'm on the candida protocols from book. I had to buy 1% MB, rather than the 0.1% called for. I thought I had figured out how to dilute but also confirmed where Bill addressed the problem for another person.

I followed as he states: 1 part by volume of 1% to 9 parts water. I used tablespoons, 1 to 9. Then I thought I understood that would be my jar supply to work out of. I then did 10 drops (protocol amount) from that new mix and added water for drinking. Added 1/4 tsp sodium ascorbate as directed whereupon he says it should go from blue to clear. It did not clear. I'm guessing maybe he expected my powder to be same strength as his powder...or something like that? My powder is 'crystalline' and states 1/4 teaspoon is 1112 mg vitamin C as sodium ascorbate and sodium 137 mg. I guess I thought powders would be one basic same 'strength'. I added another 2 teaspoons once before hoping that would help but it did not.

I could certainly be 'one sandwich short of a picnic' in my reasoning so please help me get un-stumped. I'm very new at this stuff as well as having 50 varieties of foggy, soggy brain. Thank you for sharing your power around the universe.

Maybe I didn't make it clear in my previous writing,

you just put the 100mg MB into a graduated container and add distilled water to fill up to 100cc(mL), the total volume is to be 100cc when completely dissolved (which include MB & water of course).

I'm new to this site, so I just saw your message very late & realized that, as I said above in my writing, there is quite a confusion in % of MB.

You can calculate the percentage stuff using the same formula: % = g/cc -> cc = g/%:

Since you know g=0.1(100mg), %=0.001,

cc = g/% = 0.1/0.001 = 100.

So you'd make 100cc(mL) of 0.1% solution of MB.

Warning: in above formula 'g' must be in grams and % must be in "fraction" as the calculation shows.

Diluting Methylene Blue
Posted by J. Park (Cerritos, Ca) on 02/19/2017

I know it's way late, I guess you already have answer, but I see so many confusions about % of solution, so here it is for those still confused:

% = g/cc, what you have 1.943g/100cc = 0.019 =~ 2% solution.

To make 0.1%, add 19 x water to it.

But better way of using it is use what Bill said:

. just use 1 drop and consider it to be 20 drops of standard 0.1%.

. add 20oz water to it. Now your 20oz is equiv. to 20 drops.

. If you take 1 oz, you just took 1 drop,

take 2 oz, you just took 2 drops, etc...

Good luck.

I also thought I had Lyme disease. It turned out that I had an ongoing toxic mold exposure, that nearly killed me before I found out what it was (and not from a doctor) and got out of my house that had a hidden water leak. Lyme and CIRS (toxic mold illness) have extremely similar symptoms, and common mis-diagnoses are CFS, Fibromyalgia, and any other "syndrome" disease.

Anyone whose doctor says "it must be a virus" yet it never goes away, should go read survivingmold site. Water damaged buildings are common but the vast majority of physicians are not cognizant that 24% of the population has a genetic haplotype that is susceptible to the toxins. So only 1/4 of the people in a water damaged building will be extremely ill, and the other 3/4 either not ill or only with niggling minor illnesses. Well worth a look for the CFS/Fibro people. If I hadn't found out it was mold, I'd be dead.

MB Dilution: To arrive from a 2.3% solution to a 0.1% solution you simply add 23 units (drops, oz, etc) of distilled water for every 1 unit of MB. I used a glass eye dropper container. Add 20 drops of 2.3% MB, then add 460 drops of distilled water.

Chronic Fatigue

I found that methylene blue works great for chronic fatigue. It was like someone hit my on switch. My energy level and thinking improved drastically and I was easily able to give up caffeine. However, the reason why methylene blue was able to work so well for me is that my chronic fatigue was due the fact that methylene blue treats mitochondria damage, and I have mitochondria damage from taking Cipro. Never take Cipro.

Posted by Janet (Indiana) on 07/22/2016


Here is how we do it. We use that brand. The bottle should have powder in it. I fill the bottle to below the rim with spring or distilled water cap it and shake. Do this on a paper or glass plate it stains. Citrus cleaner or lemon removes stains. In a two oz. Dropper bottle I add 4 stoppers of the concentrate then I add water to that carefully it loves to overflow leave room to put dropper back in. It makes .01 % solution. Then you can use whatever your remedy calls for. Do not forget to add c with it when you take it. Janet

If you are concerned about the quality of the methylene blue you are considering using for your mom, you can purchase it through a chemical supplier like Sigma Aldrich where they will have a certificate of analysis, a spec sheet and a certificate of origin so you know exactly what you are buying and its purity. It will cost a little more and won't be as easy to get, but you know exactly what you are getting.®ion=US

Another option is to speak to your mother's doctor about it and see if he/she will write a prescription that can be filled at a compounding pharmacy to your doctors specifications.

You will have to do some research on your own to get a better understanding of how MB may be helpful for neurodegenarative diseases and what dose would be best in your mother's case. MB has a good safety profile and probably a very good safety profile at the dose your mother would likely use.

PD has multiple forms and one form is directly associated to longer term pesticide exposure while others do not have this association. Some progress slower than others.

In the mean time, you might look into vitamin D as it relates to Parkinson's Disease. There are many studies available on PubMed that suggest that the population in general is low on serum 25 (OH)D, but even lower among people with Parkinson's Disease and that the lower the serum 25(OH)D, the worse the symptoms. A couple of the studies go so far as to say that the proper serum level of 25(OH)D may slow disease progression and help protect neurons in the brain.

There are many supplements that show benefit for people living with PD. I am currently compiling a lengthy list of about 50 of these supplements and gathering information on them trying to see which ones are most likely to have actual benefit in humans. Many supplements have only been tested in rodents and consequently would fall lower on the list. It is a work in progress and will take me sometime before I am finished. Having a very good to excellent safety profile is a very important consideration for me because that will improve the odds of having a doctor approve a supplement for a patient.

The topical magnesium oil is frequently noted for helping to relax stiff or cramping muscles in PD and is readily available at many health food stores and on the web. It also has other health benefits and can build up the bodies supply of magnesium while limiting the potential for diarrhea.

There are many supplements that show potential to be of use in PD, but you'll have to do your research and determine what will be compatible with for your mother.

In any case it is important that you get approval and supervision from your mother's doctor before using any supplements to make sure that they are compatible with the prescription meds that she is taking.

You have to be able to think outside the box.

All of the questions you asked can be answered by doing some online research. I've been an EC devotee for many, many years, but I never stop doing my 'homework'. I read, read, read *everywhere* online.

With natural remedies, quite often, there isn't a real answer to 'why' something works--it just does.

We always vet products with independent testing. Here's the test result for the current batch of methylene blue:

It's over 100% when it's more pure than the reference sample from Sigma Aldrich. The actual purity is probably between 99-100%.

There was some research on using Methylene Blue to treat Hep B. I believe it was 70 mg twice a day. I cannot remember the pharma company that did the research. However they were unable to get a patent on it so dropped the human studies. Only downside was that the Methylene Blue causes blue pee.

Methylene blue was used in WWII in high doses to treat infection. Also look for information on the Blue People of Kentucky. Those people were taking several hundred mg a day for years without harm.

Go buy some ascorbic acid from the store and put it on the MB stain. Comes out, just get it slightly wet and let it sit awhile. I think I used peroxide too.

I had a bottle from a fish store that had some crusty MB on the top of the bottle. I didn't think anything of it when the MB flake fell on the counter. Later when it was exposed to water (didn't immediately see it), I figured out my mistake.

Could you check if you used Methylene Blue as this stuff stains everything (it's main use is as a stain) a deep blue, yourself and the tub. I spilled a couple of drops in the bath it took quite a lot of scrubbing to get rid of the blue.

Posted by James (Liverpool, Uk) on 12/09/2014

Please tell me what concentration of methylene blue you were using in your drops. I'm taking 1 drop 2. 4% but getting nowhere. Ted told me 5 to ten drops 1%, similar size to mine. Likely you are taking more than me.

Posted by Bill (San Fernando, Philippines) on 10/03/2014

Hi Shadel...The correct dosage of 0.1% Methylene Blue is in the range of 6 to 15 drops(in a solution of vitamin C) once or twice a day dependent on your size. You can take this dose twice a day, but you should never take it after about 3 pm because of its energizing effects.

You should always take MB with at least 1000 mgs of vitamin C in water in order to avoid its side effects -- Taken just on its own, MB turns your urine green and the whites of your eyes blue because it stains carbohydrates blue. Other than that there are no side effects. I've taken MB with Vit C for 8 years and what you will also find is that it will give you an energy boost and wake you up due to its positive methylation effects on the body.

You should never take MB in the evening otherwise you might have difficulty getting to sleep because it is so energizing. Other than that, I've found MB easy to use and very useful against pathogens.

The dosage that is advised here is relatively small and very safe. In the 1960s they used to give the US troops in Vietnam MB by the spoonful to help recover them from malaria.

Posted by Shadel (Nebraska, US) on 10/03/2014

Posted by Jean (Oregon, US) on 09/18/2014

I bought MB in 2.303% concentration. If I divide 2.303 by .1 =23.03

So, does that mean if I add 23 drops to 1 drop of the 23.3% that I get .1%?

I know someone said to put it in a gallon of water. How much 1 drop? Isn't that 200%?

As you can tell, I am not understanding this AT ALL!

Hi Pankaj...I also use Methylene Blue bought from an aquarium shop. This also has no spec showing the percentage MB in this solution. But, generally, all Methylene Blue sold from aquariums is at 1% strength.

So what I did was just to assume that it was 1% solution.

The way I now take Methylene Blue with water is like this:

Say that I want to take 5 drops of 0.1% MB solution.

For five drops of 0.1% MB I first add 1 drop of 1% MB to a glass of water. This is equivalent to 10 drops of 0.1% MB.

Then I pour half the water out of the glass.

So you are now left with 1/2 drop 1% MB or 5 drops of 0.1% MB in solution which is your dose.

Usually, I take about 10 to 15 drops whenever needed. Always add or supplement at least 1000 mgs of Vitamin C with the methylene blue solution -- the vitamin c stops your eyes and urine turning blue. MB is a harmless stain that is also used in science to identify carbohydrates by turning blue.

Using Methylene Blue
Posted by Chickkie (Chelmsford, Ma) on 07/25/2014

I found out the hard way. Methylene blue is sometimes deliberately contaminated with arsenic, possibly to prevent us from benefiting from a safe effective product. The type I bought had a warning label not to be used in food producing fish. I called the store I bought it from, they said it did not have arsenic. This was a lie.

I suffered greatly from severe arsenic poisoning. I wish there was a way to be sure the source was pure, because aside from the arsenic, methylene blue was great stuff.

hi everyone

I am sorry to be such a newly with what might be a totally ridiculous question. I have been diagnosed with Methemoglobinemia (which I think is a type of Anaemia). I have read that the treatment for the condition is Methylene Blue. I have ordered some powdered MB from a pharmaceutical company so a s to make sure it's not the stuff used in Aquariums. My question is 1) how do it take it. I'm guessing to put a little in a glass of water and drink it. and 2) I've read that I should take it with Vit. C 500-1000mg.

Combined with this Anaemia, I travel on international long haul flights in excess of 16 hours duration about every 10 days, and am constantly jet-lagged and tired. I've read here that MB may help with fatigue also.

Thank you all in advance for your help and once again I apologise for my ignorance.

I was taking Methylene Blue (12-13 drops in 8 ounces of water) with a thousand milligrams of vitamin C for about a week & I noticed the severity of my candida related itchy skin was reduced, I then upped my dosage by a few more drops per day (14-15 drops) in about 9-10 ounces of water, and a few hours later my stool was loaded with dead candida overgrowth! I normally have bad constipation but this time my "relief" was smooth and easy I was amazed. Also, I use the Methylene blue stain directly on my skin where I have itchy candida rashes, yes it stains! But only for a few days & most of it will wash off with soap and water, so use it where it cannot be seen, and it will take you itchy rash away with relief within 10-15 minutes and the relief will last for like a week, until the bugs send out a new invading force! I have also use Methylene Blue in more diluted parts for itchy skin in more visible areas with relief & I found it is also good for tooth aches.

P.S when I take it in strong doses your urine turns blue for about a day, but when you stop taking it it turns back to normal & I take vit C 500-1000 mill and have had no problems with my eye coloring, which I also heard is reversible if you should happen to have that happen to you.

@Fiona: Good to hear of your benefits w/ therapeutic baths. I suppose you are suffering from a fungal infection, you didn't elaborate on your illness enough.

Anyway, it would seem wise to also take baths in major & trace minerals occasionally as to prevent depletion or imbalance of minerals. I use the hot tub chlorine once wk and mineral plus borax occasionally. These definitely help w/ my fungal issue. I also add a squirt of povidone iodine which would help in several ways. I add several drops of liquid iodine to my jug of drinking water. I do occasionally add a few spoons of the MMS2 to the bath but can't report any major improvements.

I have used Methylene Blue for orally and a bath. Orally taking made me feel better shortly and then I got depressed shortly. Ever since then I use it for bath. I realized it colored blue much darker on impure cells. And then it fell off. I had bad breakouts but the grip was very strong. I painted methylene blue on top of the affected skin. A few hours later it would lose the grip and fall off. I have been using for bath about 2 months. It gave me much better brain function and also it helps me peel off dead skin much more faster and effective and skin becomes whiter and pinkier and a lot firmer.

I think using MB for bath almost gives no side effects. Very safe. I am planning to use it as long as I live.

If you had some bad reaction on using MB such as depression I would recommend using on the biggest organ that human has. Which is skin.. If you start detoxing skin, the overall toxic load on the body decreased. I really think a bath with methylene blue gives so many healing properties.

On top of methylene blue, I am using MMS2 which is pool shock (calcium hypochlorite) I believe orally you take this and see yourself what is coming out of your body. Extremely powerful yet cheap.

After suffering 35 years, and researching I found out the healing power is not according to the price or wellknown drug. I believe you heal quicker than the disease spread, then you are on the right track.

MMS2 is very powerful it cures AIDS or Lyme etc.. you can read about mms on Jim Humble's website. When you detox, the body uses up so much iodine. Make sure you take enough of iodine.

UPDATE; Four months of Methylene Blue.

It has no effect on chronic fatigue - doesn't give me any energy; also doesn't keep me up at night if I take it right before bed.

There are two areas where it seems to have worked magic: Cysts and Anxiety; as well as other benefits for insomnia and problem solving.

It did clear up my long term liver/kidney/diaphram/intestinal cysts, and for that, I am very grateful. I stopped taking it for about a week, and the pain radiating from what used to be the most painful cyst began to return, so I am sure this is what fixed them, although I have no idea why it came back and whether to continue taking MB indefinitely.

Anxiety: There's something about MB that fixes my generalized anxiety. It's fairly miraculous in that regard. I did not take it for anxiety, but I notice an improvement (almost total resolution) when I take it. As a result, don't need xanax. Again not sure whether it is safe to take indefinitely for anxiety.

Along with the reduced anxiety, it helps me to focus more on problem solving. Not a complete resolution but a definite improvement. I have chronic fatigue related brain fog, and it definitely gives a boost in that department so I can see why it is being used successfully in Alzheimer's patients.

I think I am sleeping better -- deeper sleep, not getting up so much in the middle of the night, because of the MB, which is huge because I've lived through 25 years of insomnia. Used to take RX sleeping pills of various kinds (4-5 days per week) but not taking them anymore.

When I first started the MB in Feb 2013, I experienced significant tingling in my head (felt like brain buzzing). I was taking several milligrams of melatonin per night, and drinking coffee during the day. Both of those were a problem while taking MB but now, after a few months, I am able to drink a regular cup of coffee now and then with no adverse reactions. I also take a much lower dose (1. 5 mg) melatonin with no side effects. For some reason, tea creates no problems.

MB had no effect on yeast/candida, herpes related virus, or fungal infections.

Other than occassional "brain buzzing", I think MB may have a negative effect on vision (blurrier, esp at higher doses). It MAY have a positive effect on acne but I've been taking a skin/nail/hair formula as well and think it is because of that that my acne has improved.

I am taking 3-5 drops of 0.1% per day.

Perhaps E.C cross post this to Anxiety/panic attacks; and intestinal cysts.

I am suffering from a bad fungal infection of my sinuses and head-tried verconazole--1100.00 a month--lots of nasty side affects--methylene blue (mb) did the job much better--ingested and nebulized at first then only orally. Started with 1/10th of one drop of 2% mb been working up another drop a day. The day after being sneezed on by a very sick woman, I started feeling poorly with my head feeling worse--I nebulized mb a few times and felt poorly the next day-but am feeling good again now--I think the mb stopped the virus in its tracks--could be the cure for the common cold and other viral infections.

Warning--you must hold your breath while nebulizing--do not inhale the mb--will hurt your lungs--I put a straw in the mouthpiece and block off the unit so all the mist is coming out the straw--you can only do this with the old style neb that works off air pressure. Hope is everything!!!

I can only find Lugol's online. Usually, I get the 2% and double the number of drops because 5% is harder to come by.

Just realized that I wrote I was taking 9 grams of melatonin. LOL! That would be an overdose for sure. I was taking 9 mgs, and have tapered down to 3 mg. Will continue tapering to 1.5 mg.

At this point, the brain buzzing has become barely noticeable on top of my head. That buzzing sensation in the legs and right side have stopped as well (those are areas that flared up with buzzing and pain once when I took doxycycline -so it's interesting to note) and it appears the other possible side effects - back pain, headaches, weren't related. I do suspect the interaction of melatonin with methylene blue (MB) was part of the buzzing issue. Regular coffee is definitely also an isssue in the buzzing, so my advice is avoid or drink decaf.

MB has not increased my energy levels but I still think it has increased my ability to focus and has perhaps reduced depression and anxiety as well.

I don't know how many miccrograms I'm getting of the MB with each drop at 0.1%. I think it could be 60 mcg. If anyone has a guesstimate, I'd really appreciate an approximation to assist with my research on scientific studies with MB.

Was wondering where you were able to get 5% iodine. I can get it online but hoped you found a store you can walk into and buy. I am aware of the law changes in 2007 that only one ounce of 5% can be sold at one time.

I have looked almost everywhere for it, in healthfood stores. No one has it. Whole Foods and Earwhone doesn't even have iodine other than the one help derived iodine and does not provide any percentages on the lable and the fluid is clear.

Thank you for posting this. I'd been looking into Methylene Blue (MB) for antifungal/antibiotic/antiviral uses, and noted that it seemed to clear up brain fog and was being used in clinical trials for a variety of brain-related issues (which I have to some degree). I also had multiple painful cysts (one each on an ovary, liver, kidney, in diaphram area and a breast.) The breast one seemed to go away on it's own but the others persisted for 9 months, sometimes doubling me over in agony. Usually though, they only hurt if I or my doctor pressed on them.

After a week on MB, I noticed the abdominal area cysts hadn't been bothering me, so I began pressing on all the parts that hurt, and no pain. I'm assuming they are now cleared up. Note that two weeks prior to MB, I finally took a course of antibiotics, which may have helped, but the pain was still there, and they still hurt when I pressed on them even a week after discontinuing the antibiotics.

Other supplements I take are Lugols 5% (average 1 drop per day); daily, a half dose of a good quality, high b vitamin multi, vitamin D 1500-2000 per day, N-A-C, Milk Thistle, Lysine, 3-4 grams Vitamin C and melatonin; Zinc, selenium lithium aspartate (5 mg) are taken 3-4 x per week. Also, I've been faithfully making Ted's alkalzing formula 1/4 tsp baking soda with an acid (ACV, lemon juice, or for now, just the vitamin C crystals to take with the Methylene Blue). Additional baking soda taken on its own before bed.

Take a few low dose (usually 1/3 of lowest dose) Xanax and Trazadone for sleep or panic attacks as needed. (Once in past week.) Taking the MB in 2-5 drops, 2-3 x per day in the 0.1% solution recommended by this site (Ted). I've settled for now upon 2 drops but experimented a bit.

I've experienced reduced brain fog, increased ability to focus, recall of memories and vocabulary that were lost to the brain fog, deeper sleep, and less anxiety but not ruling out placebo effect (or the addition of Lysine) yet as I haven't been on it for months. I can only say that the cysts are not a placebo effect, as they were painful and I wasn't taking MB for them per se, although I did hope for improved general health due to possible viral/fungal/bacterial infection. I have traveled to jungles, etc. , in past and thought perhaps I picked up something US docs don't screen for.

Side effects I may be experiencing from Methylene Blue are headaches (mild, infrequent), dehydration - drinking lots more water, buzzing in brain - specifically the right side over temple, and sometimes on top of hear, stiffness in neck/ upper back. Except for the buzzing, the others may not be related at all. The brain buzzing is particulalry amplified by coffee and/or N-A-C. I've also been experiencing a buzzing in my lower legs (outside of calf) for a few days.

There's research on Methylene Blue that says it is an inhibitor of Tau protein aggregation. (From wiki: Tau proteins are proteins that stabilize microtubules. They are abundant in neurons of the central nervous system and are less common elsewhere, but are also expressed at very low levels in CNS astrocytes and oligodendrocytes.[1] When tau proteins are defective, and no longer stabilize microtubules properly, they can result in dementias such as Alzheimer's disease.

Melatonin also reduces tau hyperphosphorylation, at least in rat brain studies, so I'm going to taper off of melatonin (I've taken 9 grams for a year) for a while. It might somehow be related to the buzz effect too.

That's my report. I fully expect that the mental benefits from my lose dose Methylene Blue experience will be a fail/placebo, but I'm going to keep it up for two or three more months, just in case.
