I am amazed that after one and a half days of taking methylene blue with vitamin c my 85 year old dad, who has Parkinson's, initiated transfer to his wheelchair and needed much less assistance than yesterday. Yesterday he was not weight bearing much. This morning I did not pick him up to get in his chair, just guided him. I broke out into laughter of happiness!
Thank you a million for the information you provide on earthclinic. I love seeing the results!
The methylene blue works, however, continual use of low dose is very helpful. However if it is discontinued, at least in the beginning may weaken the energy level, but further dose will allow the person to recover. Methylene blue is considered a super antioxidant for the mitochrondria. The best that I have seen so far. The brain is the highest metabolic rate in the body and hence is helpful with methylene blue since it increases energy level to normal levels through mitochrondria support. Taurine supplements and some potassium bicarbonate with baking soda are also helpful and supportive to this remedy too.
It's often best used as dose I have mentioned. I liked it so much I have since added methylene blue to my Emergency Aid kit as posted previously, although it remains I still needed some tweaking. Low levels of brain metabolism is what I believe to be causing the Parkinson's disease, and I have found the methylene blue to be helpful.
Thank you for the feedback!

Hi Jane, can you tell me how your father is getting on with the methylene blue? Is it proving helpful. A relative of mine has just been diagnosed with Parkinson's. As yet they only have tremors in the hands and I would love to get something that prevents it getting any worse, or at least slows down its progression. Any updates would be appreciated. Thanks, Mary.

Dear Mary from Northern Ireland,Yes my father is getting along well and the Parkinson's symptoms are definitely diminished since taking the methelyne blue regularly. I am very encouraged about this and I have specific reason to suspect that the Parkinson's is at least partially fungal related in my father. He is also taking the alkaline drink with sodium carbonate, bicarbonate of soda, potassium citrate, taurine, carnosine. The alkaline drink two and sometimes three times a day is noticeably helpful as well. He has sleep apnea which is problematic at times. The alkaline drink seems to help with this some as does sleeping on his side and not on his back. I would hate to be without any of these things because I have noticed increased mental focus for my dad and increased energy. At first I believe he was taking too much methylene blue, a drop of 1% solution three times daily. He is now taking a drop or two of 0.1% two to three times daily depending on our schedules. The higher concentration may have temporarily caused a tremor that wasn't there before. His symptoms did not initiate with the tremor, but with the mask like face and a shuffling gate. Now his face is like his old self with his smile and usual expressions. He has his sense of humor and his personality again. Also I believe that magnesium is helping him very much too.Not magnesium aspartate! Also I have since learned that our eating food with msg may have correlated with a little setback he had. So now we are much more careful to avoid all msg and excitotoxins that are sometimes in mineral supplements. He takes carbidopa/levidopa three times daily as well.

Dear A from Toronto, I learned from Ted that the sodium ascorbate is in a form more appropriate for the body since ascorbic acid would be a lower ph and our body is more optimal at a ph of about 7. Actually you could probably get a better answer from Ted because I am just learning about these things.
I have seen a published drug study regarding using the vitamin c with methylene blue. I believe it was in regard to treating malaria. At any rate it appears that vitamin c is needed. At least there should be vitamin c circulating in the body when taking methylene blue. I don't think its necessary to take vitamin c every time one takes methylene blue.
As to the stroke issue, I just don't know much about that. What I have read is that it is the chlorides that are so harmful. You know, table salt. So a good sea salt is something that you may want to get and avoid the table salt that is refined and not natural. Sodium chloride is in the processed foods as well. Apparently sea salt, like Celtic sea salt, is very good for us and even fights infections. It also increases thirst and so then we drink more water which is good for us.
Another comment about stroke. I have learned that excess calcium circulating is one sure cause of stroke. The misinformation about taking calcium is not been helpful to us at all. Also I gave my father mega doses of a magnesium citrate product that we since learned was not even magnesium at all or at least had a large component of calcium in it. We have now learned to make magnesium oil with the magnesium flakes sold to salt water fish hobbyists. I rub it on my Dad's skin and it goes through the skin into the body and relaxes his muscles and also helps to put the calcium in its place and out of the blood stream which greatly reduces his chance of having another stroke.
The alkaline drink is something we take about once per day, sometimes twice and now sometimes not at all. Everyone's needs are different and sometimes I am not that compliant. I guess its because my Dad is getting better and so now I'm not that scared. The alkaline drink we take is in a small cup with a small amount of water. We follow this drink with a glass of water. It is 1/8 tsp of sodium carbonate dissolved, then add 1/8 tsp baking soda dissolved, then add 1/8 to tsp potassium citrate dissolved. So that's it. I still recommend inquiring of Ted because I learned this from him. The basic thing is to check urine ph and I believe it is supposed to be a 7. You may find other posts to verify all of this. It will not be in the methylene blue thread though.
Another way to alkalinize is to drink lemon water. Just don't use chlorinated water.
I hope this helps.
If you are concerned about stroke then learn about DMSO. Miraculous and does so much more. ( Just learning about methylene blue…0
How can something from a pet store for fish tanks help with parkinsons? What is this methylene blue? Is it safe to take? When I read the post that others have written, there's no reply or answer will I get an answer? How am I supposed to get my mom to take something from a pet store it sounds crazy. I hope someone has good answers for this post. Please help.
Pet store methylene blue is very low quality and apt to have heavy metals included. It is not for human consumption. You can purchase pharmaceutical grade that is tested for purity and it comes with directions to dilute for the correct strength. I would mix with normal saline.
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.
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.
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.
As of 7/13/2018, Your link goes to Methyl Blue, which is NOT Methylene Blue. As you all know, in chemistry, the EXACT NAME matters. Be sure you are looking up "methylene blue".
Can we use Methylene blue on dogs ? If so how would we dilute for a 5 lb. dog ?
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The doctor told me that it is a non-aggressive cancer. So the doctor suggested we periodically monitor it for changes.
I am 85 years old and the diagnosis is as follows:
Grade and score on the Gleason scale of 3 + 4, clinical stage T 2 and a PSA of 7.25 ng/ml.
I heard that MBCure (methylene blue) taken together with baking soda might make this cancer go away.
With 1 gram of MBCure and 100 ml of distilled water I can produce a 0.1 solution which seems to be recommended. With this formula I will have a total quantity of 100 ml of MBCure.
As my weight is 78 kg (172 lbs), I would like to know how many drops I should take each day to get a good result.
Also does it have to be taken with vitamin C and can it be taken and mixed with baking soda?
In addition, I would like to have your opinion on these products:
There is Deuterium-depleted water that can be consumed to reduce the Deuterium in our body to around 120 ppm.
There is also Zeolite Clinoptilolite which seems to be another product that can improve cancer treatment.
Thanking you in advance for your advice and for all the people who may benefit from your advice.
On the chance that you don't get the replies you are seeking, two other potential adjunctive treatments for PC is Melatonin and Berberine as discussed in the following links below:
A relevant quote :
' This is the first demonstration showing that melatonin impedes metastasis of prostate cancer by suppressing MMP-13 expression in both in vitro and in vivo models. Thus, melatonin is promising in the management of prostate cancer metastasis and deserves to undergo clinical investigations. '
A relevant quote :
' Recently, melatonin emerges as a prospective therapeutic agent with a series of beneficial effects on human cancers over a wide range of concentrations and tumor types. In this review article, we predominantly discuss the anti-tumor effects of melatonin on human PCa. The underlying mechanisms of how melatonin inhibits the growth and progression of PCa were related to the promotion of AR exclusion, activation of MT1 signaling, modulation of PCa metabolism, inhibition of angiogenesis, regulation of neuroendocrine differentiation, induction of apoptosis. Moreover, melatonin also exerts synergistic benefits while incorporating with other chemotherapeutic agents and is an effective adjuvant to androgen depletion therapy. Melatonin is also hopeful to be a noninvasive biomarker for predicting PCa since a low urinary melatonin level is highly correlated to the incidence of PCa. '
A relevant quote from the study :
' In a multivariate analysis, melatonin administration proved to be an independent prognostic factor and reduced the risk of death of PCa patients by more than twice (p < 0.0001). '
Another consideration is Berberine :
A relevant quote :
' Berberine inhibits prostate cancer cell growth and induces apoptosis. A, structure of berberine. B, BBR inhibited the growth of LNCaP. Cells were treated with various concentrations of BBR for 24, 48, or 72 hours. MTT assay was conducted to determine cell viability. The viability of control cells was set at 100%. The data plotted are mean ± SD; n = 8. C, BBR induced apoptosis in LNCaP. Apoptosis was quantitated by cell death ELISA in LNCaP cells treated with indicated concentrations of BBR for 24 hours. Data plotted are mean ± SD; n = 3. *, P < 0.05; **, P < 0.01. '
A relevant study quote :
' BBR has been shown to suppress the capacity of prostate cancer cells to spread and infiltrate, these cells being strongly metastatic . The inhibitory activity of BBR resulted in a substantial reduction in the expression of a panel of mesenchymal genes that control developmental EMT. High BMP7, NODAL, and Snail gene expression in metastatic prostate cancer tissues is associated with shorter survival in patients with prostate cancers and offers potential therapeutic targets among the EMT-related genes downregulated by BBR  (Table 2). '
A relevant quote from this review :
' Importantly, the active ingredient of berberine has clear inhibitory effects on various cancers, including colorectal cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, and cervical cancer. '
I have always felt that topically applied colloidal silver (CS) with a DMSO primer to allow the CS to penetrate the skin and dermal layers in the area of the prostate would be useful, but it is only speculation on my part so I can't even recommend it, just me thinking out loud.
While not reporting a cure, there is a book on Amazon that has a lot of information on the use of Methyline Blue - it's not very large nor expensive, but has information on dosage as well as numerous conditions it helps.
Oral Dosage For Methylene Blue - FLCCC Protocol Review
Here is the link to an excellent video on dosage. make sure you watch his Methylene Blue and Near InfraRed Light for Neuroprotection video as well.
Removing Methylene Blue Stains
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.
Is there a use-by date for Methylene Blue? I bought a 250 ml. bottle about 12 months ago.
... I have encountered a person who was dying from swine flu, pretty much the doctors have given up. Tamiflu simply didn't work both as prevention and in advanced cases of the swine flu, or the 2009 Viruses. The only thing that has helped this man in ICU was actually the hourly dose for 24 hour of 1000 mg of lysine. For weeks he was on high fever, and the only thing that can tame his fever was actually the lysine. When he did get better and body temperature became normal, the lysine dose was switched to 2000 mg every two hours, since every hour prevented him having long sleep. Lysine was fed via tube. Ideally the lysine dose can be spaced much further if there is no increase in any fever. Since this man was a confirmed H1N1, where it took a week to found out he did have H1N1, the swine flu ate away about half of his lungs, from excessive mucus, and the man was not able to breathe on his own, and has to be on an artificial respirator. As a result, the excessive mucus was controlled with 4 tablets of chinese herbal supplements ganmaoling tablets, taken every 4 hours so it may again disturb his sleep schedule. Within the first hour, there were clear indications of reduced mucus, and it was this that ate away his lungs. His inability to breathe was placed on artificial respirator, as a result two more supplements needed to restore his normal breathing using methylene blue 0.1% taken at 2 drops one in the morning and two drops one in the evening. Since methylene blue did restore or return his breathing and was taken off the artificial respirator within the week, the methylene blue caused him to sleep less as he now has more energy. Therefore the dose was reduced to one drop in the morning and one drop at 12.00 p.m. Tamiflu was not helpful both as prevention and when people did have it since some were on tamiflu."
10. The Swine flu scare is not real.
It is real and the numbers are much larger then what authorities say. However the real scare is to spread it and for people to get vaccinated and then it gets deadly. It eats up the lungs over long term flu. I am as yet trying to fine a cure to restore lungs after they have been eaten away by the flu. What I am currently looking is the lysine, methylene blue and the Ganmaoling chinese herbal preparations.
EC: The above post has been excerpted from the Swine Flu remedies page...
The way the media in this country ran with the story, it did look like a hoax. And then so few cases were discovered despite the apparently urgent need for vaccines and face masks. And the people who succumbed to it were already ill. It has been said that other types of flu that hit do more damage and receive less media attention. It did look like a hoax, possibly an attempt to force the public to demand the borders be closed. Thank you for the clarification, Ted :)
Topical Methylene Blue
What about putting it on the skin. I am just hearing about the benefits of MB for skincare. Thanks!
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.
Recent research has been published about methylene blue : Common antioxidant could slow symptoms of aging in human skin. The study was published online in the journal Scientific Reports on May 30,2017. The article is available on several web sites.
Using Methylene Blue
Hi Bill, I would like to try Methylene Blue. I trust the Methylene Blue but I am worried about other ingredients in the aquatic products. One of them has Sodium Benzaote and I don't know if this is toxic or not. Other products just don't list ingredients. You also mention vitamin C and I would like to know what kind I could use such as sodium ascorbate. Can you mix the vitamin C in the water with the Methylene Blue? Thank you for you time Bill, in advance.
(San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines)
Hi Wydo... There are few problems with Methylene Blue(MB) bought from aquatics shops. Fish are very sensitive to chemical toxins, and if the MB purchased at the aquatics shop started killing fish, no one would buy it anymore. Sodium Benzoate, as Ted has mentioned, is a deep acting viral killer and is quite safe to take in small amounts.
I buy Vitamin C as Ascorbic acid powder, which is the purest form. When you buy the Ascorbic Acid tablets, they add adhesive fillers which I don't like, because these fillers inhibit the Ascorbic Acid going into solution thereby inhibiting absorbtion into the body. The ascorbic acid powder is the purest and cheapest form you can buy.
To create Sodium Ascorbate I just add half a teaspoon of Ascorbic Acid to a glass of water and then add Baking Soda(Sodium Bicarbonate) -- Arm & Hammer BS is fine -- to this mix until the fizzing stops. Now you have Sodium Ascorbate in solution -- in its most absorbable form. Then I just add the drops of 0. 1% Methylene Blue(usually 3 to 8 drops depending on your needs) to the Ascorbate or Vit C solution and just drink it down.

Hi Wydo... Yes, mix them together. Add the Ascorbic acid to the glass, then add water and mix into solution. Then, if you can, add the Baking Soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate to this solution to make it alkaline(in order to preserve the bicarbonates in your own body). Now, just add the drops of Methylene Blue. This mixture is taken outside mealtimes.
Where to Buy
Where can I find the pharmaceutical grade powder? Cheapest I saw online was over $400.00.
Buy directly from Compass Laboratories. Never from Amazon.
Where to Buy
I really need methylene blue since I have a genetic disorder(Methemoglobinemia)
But I cant seem to find a way to purchase it because it is not available to buy in my country.
Is there any way you can help me with that. Thanks
You want USP Pharmaceutical grade, not pet/industrial grade. I get mine from Amazon.
Where to Buy
Heavy Metal Detox: There is a company that produces Methylene BLUE that also produces a product called Rid Metal for eliminating heavy metals in aquariums. I emailed to ask how toxic (if at all) their products are to people, and asked for ingredient lists. The 4 ounce bottle of Methylene BLUE says it is a 2.303 percent solution, and adds that it is zinc free, but it doesn't say what other chemicals are in it. The bottle cautions that it "is toxic to plants and is harmful to biological filtration, preventing nitrification and resulting in a rapid rise in ammonia and/or nitrite levels.
The response to the inquiry is (truncated): "For use in aquarium and ornamental pond keeping the K----- products Methylene Blue and Rid-Metals are safe to use by humans who follow the printed instructions in the proper use of these products.
K----- Rid-Metals is a water conditioner that eliminates heavy metals in the water. It does not eliminate heavy metals in the fish. Therefore, as a water conditioner, Rid-Metals is meant as a preventative to eliminate heavy metals before they can become a problem to fish and aquatic invertebrates.
Where to Buy
Where can I purchase methylene blue? Where did you find the information about this? I cannot find a previous post from Ted on this. I did find that you can buy this without a prescription. Thanks.
I was looking for a very pure MB solution - not one found at at aquatic store - which are supposedly loaded with arsenic and other impurities So I found a supplier today here in the USA and would like to include her email answers on the purity of their product. EC, hope this is OK.
We always vet products with independent testing. Here's the test result for the current batch of methylene blue: https://www.bluebrainboost.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/methylene-blue.pdf
It's over 100% when it's more pure than the reference sample from Sigma Aldrich. The actual purity is probably between 99-100%.
Donna C replied
Thank you, Debbie!
Yes, I do have one more question - can you tell me the percentage of purity of the powder you use to make it?
Thanks for reaching out.
Our 10 mg/mL solution is 1% methylene blue.
Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be happy to assist!
Donna C sent a message
I am interested in your meth. blue. Can you tell me what % your solution is....specifically, I am looking for a 1% solution.
Where to Buy: Austria
Can anyone recommend any places where I can buy pharmaceutical grade Methylene blue (not for aquariums)? Thx, George
