My dad was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma back in Feb 2007. He has been thru chemo several times and it's to the point now that he just can't stand the strong treatments and they aren't effective now anyway. We have always believed that God put natural methods here to cure cancer etc. And one of his friends told us about Mary Martin Sloop who back in the early to mid 1900's took methylene blue for cancer after the Dr. had cut her open and then sewed her back up because they said they couldn't do anything for her. Mary Martin Sloop went on to live 40 more years after taking the methylene blue. We have no idea how to get it, use it and would it even work for my dad now since he is in pretty bad shape. He is unable to eat basically as he has trouble keeping food down and is really weak. The Dr. gave him no more than a few weeks to live. Can you please let us know quickly if there is anything that would get him well. We don't want to prolong his suffering but we would love to get him back to his active lifestyle of bowling, biking and living for the Lord. Thanks and God bless, Kevin
Thank you so much for this information. Especially for the clarity on which remedy reaches intracellularly and which on can only help extracellularly. I have a friend with bone cancer right now and would really like to assist him.
I need clarity on the exact chemicals i should suggest. You seem to conclude that the optimal one is carbicarb plus potassium citrate. Is this accurate? I was not sure if I was getting what you meant. Thank you!!
Diluting Methylene Blue
wow- this gets sooo confusing. OK- so I have the littel bottle of Meth Blue from science lab website... I am trying to convert the measurements here: If I have 100 cc, that equals 3 and 1/2 ozs., and then to mix the 1:9 ratio, I mix that 3 and 1/2 ozs. with a liter (900 ccs of water?) thanks... am trying not to poison myself....
Diluting Methylene Blue
This is Merryanne,,,I received a call back from the manufactor of the 32oz contanier with a little methylene blue powder in it--he said that after filling with water you have a 2.3% solution. That did answer my question,,but now I have several more (since I did not take the call my message taker did) like how long is that going to be good for, I will have to dilut some of it to 0.1%. So I am going to call him back on Wednesday (when I am off work) and find out how much of his powder it takes to make a 0.1% solution. Then I want be wasting the powder,,because 32oz of 2.3% diluted down to 0.1% is a lots, and lots of solution. And I don't think the shelf life is long enough,,I will ask if it can be frozen. I will let you know what they say.
Diluting Methylene Blue
Hello, this is Merryanne in Central Florida,,,I order of Methylene Blue has arrived,,,I ordered a 32oz bottle,,will I have a 32oz bottle with a little bit of powder in it,,,I read the directions and your to fill with distilled water to the top. I called to find out what percentage the mix would be,,but the girl does not know..I contacted the manufacture and left a message to give me that information. I ordered form a company in OH that thinks they are the solution ...Does anyone have any clue about this,,what the mix solution might be???merryanne
Can we use Methylene blue on dogs ? If so how would we dilute for a 5 lb. dog ?
Where to Buy
The Kordon brand Methylene BLUE concentration from the pet store here is 2.303%. The product's Website says:
Contains zinc free, chloride salt of Methylene Blue. Provided as a 2.303% water solution."
Is this the correct product?
Diluting Methylene Blue
To quote Ted: "When you do buy methylene blue, the concentration may sometimes be sold as 1%, in which case you may need to dilute this to 0.1% concentration. So if a 100 cc of 1% methylene blue is bought from a local aquarium shops, I may have to add 900 cc of water (which totals) 1000 cc or 1 liter at 0.1% concentration." - end of quotation
So if you had a 2.303% solution you would use just under 50cc of 2.303% methylene blue and 900cc of water. Does that sound right?
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 :)
Where to Buy
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
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.
... 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.

One of Ted's last post, I noticed methylene blue. Because it has been mentioned a few times already, I just thought it would be a good idea to add it in your list of remedies.
Keep up the good work!
EC: Thank you for the great suggestion, Alain - done!
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.
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?
Diluting Methylene Blue
Can anyone tell me how to make a 0.1% solution from 2.303% (aquatic) solution methylene blue from a pet store?
Does anyone know of a Canadian source for methylene blue? I've searched aquarium and science supply websites, but can't find anyone willing to ship to Canada.
Also: my husband has used both glutathione (intravenous and also as an inhalant) and low-dose naltrexone (not at the same time) for Parkinson's. Each was very effective for about a year.
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.
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.
I used methylene blue to kill fungus infections anyway. A fungus damages sensitive organs, in particular, the brain, thymus, adrenal, pancreas, spleen, thyroid, are some of the things I noticed. A fungus is killed by sodium bicarbonate because of its alkalinity, but more effectively so with potassium, magnesium, for example because it kills alkalinity intracellularly as opposed to extracellularly. This is known for ages and the doctor you have mentioned to me was Dr. Simoncini. However, I have went further to look at fungicides besides methylene blue which are more effective, such as azoxystrobin, afloxystrobin and related strobilurins. Those are much more effective at much lower dose. The depth in which baking soda is limited to extracellular fluids, but are limited in bone cancer and bone marrow where baking soda is neutralized before reaching these areas, hence the necessity to use antifungals methylene blue being one of that. The issue is not well explained at other websites WHY fungus causes cancer, but the cause is not fungus in itself, it's the toxins generated by the fungus, such as mycotoxin and aflaxtoxins are the well known cancer causing substance from fungus and perhaps mycobacterium. Hence, the toxicity of mycotoxins and aflatoxins may be reduced with the BHT, but to eliminate them effectively, a potassium should be added along with baking soda. The only issue is baking soda is not so effective because of its limited alkaline buffering capacity if we compared against the carbicarb plus potassium which goes much more deeper. The Carbicarb is a sodium carbonate plus potassium citrate (e.g. technical name is tripotassium citrate). In fact two major sodium that are more effective is the sodium citrate (e.g. trisodium citrate) and potassium citrate (e.g. tripotassium citrate) and sodium carbonate with equal mix of sodium bicarbonate (commonly called carbicarb). However the current carbicarb remedy in practice isn't that perfect and may cause some kidney pain because of sodium potassium imbalance, and hence, a potassium must be added to the carbicarb remedy to resolve this problem and larger dose can be taken.
It must be noted still that I have noted two kinds of cancer, the fast cancer and the slow cancer. The faster cancer are the metastatic cancer, which are viral in character while the slower cancer are the fungal type cancer which tends to cause bone pain and leads to osteoporosis. Still I haven't even cover how you can eliminate the tumors and this is dealt most effectively with a bloodroot tincture.
I hope this explains just a small portion of my approach to dealing with cancer.
For everyone with fungal infection:
Deirdre, you might want to get Ted's opinion and post it. I just read Ted's methylene blue for Parkinson's disease. What really caught my attention was that methylene blue is sold in aquarium shops to kill fungus in the fish. DING!!!!
The question pops up: Is Parkinson's disease a fungal infection of the brain?
Something else that pop's up is the Italian method of treating cancer patients with baking soda to kill the fungi and the cancer goes away on its own!!!
It would seem that if methylene blue kills fungi in fish, it should also kill fungal infections in most, if not all living creatures, so maybe this should be posted on cancer pages. As I recall the interview with the Italian doctor shown on Dr. Mercola's site, the Italians believe that all cancers are preceded by a fungus. If this is true and methylene blue kills fungal infections, doesn't it follow that maybe all cancer treatment should begin with a substance that wipes out fungi?
Of course common sense tells you to also change the eating habits that caused you to have the fungus problem
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.
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!
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!
... You might never heard of methylene blue, but it was used during the Vietnam war to cure malaria. The reason for it's disuse is that taken in very high dose, it causes the urine to be blue. However, there's a cure for blue urine, it's called vitamin C sodium ascorbate! So the reason for disuse was that the doctors simply didn't give the GI's vitamin C sodium ascorbate when they injected methylene blue, or perhaps taken internally. Even so, it can easily be proven that methylene blue will become colorless. Just add drops of methylene blue in vitamin C, it will instantly become colorless. Interestingly, methylene blue works better with vitamin C, as both are related to negative hydrogen, as evidenced by the fact that if you did use ORP meter, the resultant measurement is likely to be -200 millivolts or up to -300 millivolts, which is a negative charge. Methylene blue is a negative hydrogen carrier, while vitamin C sodium ascorbate, preferably is a producer of that and is a reducing agent.
