I've only been taking methylene blue for about two weeks, so I can't yet speak to long-term benefits or side-effects. But its positive results for me in this little time have been remarkable.

I've been suffering with depression and numerous physical problems for several years, to the point of being nearly bedridden at times, and being unable to function productively more days than not. I've tried dozens and dozens of natural remedies, with only limited effect.

When I began taking the methylene blue, I had a couple of days of discomfort in the area of one kidney. But within a couple of days, this had subsided, and I currently have the strongest physical and mental health I've had in years! My mood is joyful, and I have much improved focus when reading. The pains in my spleen area have virtually disappeared, I can breath comfortably at rest (my breathing was laboured before), and I have gone from needing 9 or 10 hours of sleep a night to needing only 6 or 7 to get by comfortably.

MB isn't a cure-all -- I still have back problems, and skin issues, and some other symptoms from congenital/genetic issues. But, based on my own experience, I recommend trying it if you have had problems with candida or parasites, anything spleen-related, depression without obvious cause, persistent breathing problems, or thyroid/glandular disfunction.

I dilute one drop of the pet-store MB into four litres of water (two full 2-litre pop-bottles), and take between a half-cup and a full cup, with extra water added to further dilute the dose, once or twice daily. Since MB is used to disinfect standing water, it shouldn't need to be refrigerated, either.

I thought I would report back after a couple of months of pretty regular use (at least 4 or 5 doses per week). Unfortunately, the euphoria and enhanced concentration didn't persist past the first few weeks, and my depressive symptoms have returned to their previous level. However, as of this time, the pains in my left side (spleen region) that were my constant companion for a long time have still not returned, so I consider it a success by this measure alone. I also believe that it's having a positive effect on my sinus pain/pressure (a problem which I attribute to systemic candida -- a longstanding problem for me -- and/or a mold infection acquired from an unhealthy living environment).

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.

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.

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.

You will want to get the USP grade, not use the pet store one. USP is more pure, free from heavy metal contamination. ✌

Methylene Blue works good. I have been fighting parasites for 2 years now. Gone in 3-4 days. I take half a glass of water with 4 blue drops 2 times a day.

You are right very few know about this wonderful simple cure, . It can pass through their tough skin that can even protect themselves the most toxic products.

To Bill from Philippines,

Hi Bill, Thank you very much for your posts. I have a question regarding the use of methylene blue against Entamoeba Hartmanni. This protozoa is believed to be non-pathogenic, however, me and my wife are experiencing the same mental and GI problems and some articles talks about virulent strains of this parasite. I feel like a bubble moving in my chest. And sometimes in the back of my neck. I took the Hulda Clark protocol for a week and I felt great but after that I felt that the protozoa has developed a resistance because I continue taking the tincture (Black walnut, Wormwood, cloves) without any improvement and I felt the symptoms coming back. What I want to do next is to use Methylene Blue against this protozoa but I don't know the right protocol. I wonder if you have time to help me with that?

I'm also taking L-Argiline because I read that L-argiline stimulates the productions of Murine macrophage in mice's which make them able to fight the protozoa. God bless you.

Hi Tommy... Using Methylene Blue will certainly help fight your problems. MB has been used against malaria for a century and was used on American troops fighting in Vietnem with malaria. MB should always be used with Ascorbic Acid (Vit C) to avoid the side effects of the whites of the eyes turning blue and also causing blue-green urine. Use of Ascorbic acid with MB prevents these side-effects. Take at least 1000 mgs vit c with the MB.

The protocol I follow is as follows:

Add half a teaspoon of Ascorbic acid powder to the glass, then add water and mix into solution. Then, if you can, add the Baking Soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate (Arm and Hammer is fine) to this solution until the fizzing stops, to make the solution alkaline(in order to preserve the bicarbonates in your own body). Now, just add the drops of 0. 1% Methylene Blue(usually 3 - 8 drops as required). This mixture is taken outside mealtimes. Take this mixture first thing in the morning and again (if required) before 3 pm. If you take the mix after 3 pm, your mind may be too energised by the MB and you wont be able to sleep later in the evening.

Hi Ted,

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!

Dear Jane:

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.

Replied by Jane
(Fort Worth, Texas)

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.

Is there a reason why sodium ascorbate should be taken with the meth blue? Would another form of vitamin C not be better when stroke is a possibility?

And could you describe the alkaline drink your father is taking-- exact amounts etc?


Replied by Jane
(Fort Worth, Tx)

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.

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.®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.

Prostate Cancer

Posted by JC (ROUGEMONT QC CANADA) on 12/30/2022


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 [49]. 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 [49] (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.

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.

Swine Flu

Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 07/22/2009

... 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.

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 :)

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.

One of them has Sodium Benzaote and I don't know if this is toxic or not. Other products just don't list ingredients.

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.

Hello again Bill and thank you for your information. I just have one more question. Could you please tell me if you can mix the Methylene Blue with vitamin C powder in the same glass of water?

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.

Excuse me, I'm curious what does this mixture do for the body? I've never heard of it before.


Hi Gina,

Methylene Blue(MB) does alot of beneficial things for the body:

1. In it's pro-oxidant or "blue" form, MB can supply increased oxygen to your cells, thus giving you more energy. Also, supplying oxygen more efficiently to all your cells helps to prevent cancer.

2. MB is an efficient wide-spectrum pathogen killer -- it kills viruses, bacteria and fungi on your body.

3. MB is used in medicine to cure Methemoglobinemia.

4. According to Dr Deepak Golwalkar who is a renowned pulmonary specialist in India -- you can use low dose 0.1% MB to both stop the deadly cytokine storms so heavily involved in COVID-19 to actually help to cure COVID-19 problems.

5. Dr Golwalkar also regularly uses a low oral dose 0.1% Methylene Blue + daily nebulized MB to cure and save his patients with serious pneumonia and tuberculosis infections.

6. MB is used as an antidote to cyanide poisoning.

7. MB has been used for over 100 years -- by the spoonful(i.e. large doses) -- against malaria.

8. MB in it's anti-oxidant form -- which is it's colorless form also known as Leucomethylene Blue -- has many cognitive benefits. There is also much research that shows that regularly supplementing low dose MB improves learning, memory, increases energy, is neuroprotective and protects the brain. This therefore makes MB extremely useful against degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other diseases like Huntington's.

9. It's also worth remembering that Methylene Blue is useful in the body both in it's pro-oxidant or "blue" state as well as in it's colorless or reduced state as LeucoMethylene Blue.

10. Methylene Blue has a half-life in your body of abour 6 hours. So this also means that even a small or low dose of MB -- either in it's pro-oxidant or anti-oxidant form -- will protect your body for an extended and useful amount of time.

11. To be absolutely clear, it does not really matter which form of MB that you take -- the pro-oxidant form or the anti-oxidant form(with added Ascorbic Acid) -- because the MB in your body will undergo many conversions to and from it's pro-oxidant and anti-oxidant forms until it is eventually removed by the liver.

Now here's some simple maths for the sake of MB dosage clarity. I don't like using MB expressed as a % and drops as the dose of MB because it seems to always confuse people. That's why I much prefer expressing the MB dosage in milligrams per drop. See below for a useful reference:

1 drop of 0.1% MB solution contains 0.05 mgs MB powder.

1 drop of 1% MB solution contains 0.5 mgs MB powder.

1 drop of 2% MB solution contains 1 mg MB powder.

From now on, I will express all MB amounts in milligrams and you should now be able to easily work out the exact number of drops you must take -- at whateverv % concentration -- from the above conversions.

Dr Golwalkars Own Daily MB Protocol

In his many articles Dr Golwalkar has said that the only protocol or precaution he took for himself during the COVID-19 pandemic in his hospital was just to follow one MB protocol. He said that he took half a teaspoon of 0.1% MB, which is equivalent to approximately 50 drops of 0.1% MB. So from the above -- that converts to:

50 drops x 0.05 = 2.5mgs MB powder.

Dr Golwalkar would then hold the MB in his mouth for 30 seconds for fast sublingual absorption into his bloodstream and then swallow it with a little extra water. Dr Golwalkar has also said that he has had very few COVID-19 deaths at his hospital despite treating many thousands of people. He has also said that he never used a mask in his hospital when doing the rounds and visiting his patients. And he never succumbed to COVID-19 during the whole period of the pandemic. As a consequence, Dr Golwalkar is regarded as a hero in India for saving so many of his people but he still remains unknown in the West because of the FDA's efficient control over the CDC, the WHO and the ever-obedient Western media.

I currently use Dr Golwalkar's low sublingual MB protocol every day -- which helps to protect me against any COVID-19 infections and, since I'm an old guy, also helps to maintain my cognitive and neurological health as well.


Many thanks, Bill, for taking the time to write this up. This is the best explanation I've seen yet on MB. It actually answers many of the questions I had since recently becoming interested in taking it and trying to learn more about it. I'm glad I can take the colorless form so I don't have to worry about stained blue teeth but still get all the benefits. Thanks again for sharing!

I found it from a lab in Florida, They offered free shipping and USP grade 8 oz with 2 oz bottle free for $100. Easily the best price I found for pharmacy grade.

The literature says to take the MB with vitamin C. What form of vitamin C and how much?

My alternative doctor (also MD) recommended I start taking MB for Morgellons, Atherosclerosis, and PAD. She orders hers 1% from BioPharm on Amazon And also gelatin capsules to fill with MB. I ordered size 00 gelatin capsules which each hold about 15 drops (7.5 gm). I started at 5 drops and worked up to 15 and take early am and pm. With each dose I also take three (3) or five (5) capsules of 1000 mg of Vitamin C. I also take the soda water twice a day and borax and H2O2 liter water twice a day—8 ozs at a time. I have only been on this protocol with MB for one week and the little Morgies are coming out in great numbers. I am thrilled to be in such pain knowing they are leaving my body at last!!! We are blessed to have received Ted' and Art's protocols.


COULD you buy such capsules already with MB?

All I see is powder or solution and I want my husband to take it w/o staining teeth...


Any soda water or is there a good brand you'd recommend? Also, how do you make the H2O2 water? I take MB with ascorbic acid dissolved in warm water; then the MB becomes clear : )

Thank you!
