Hi I have had chronic Lyme for years and yesterday I tried MMS for the first time I did one drop of MMS and one drop of citric acid mixed it in pomegranite juice and only drank about 1/4 of the fluid. Within a minute or so after taking it I strated feeling this heat going down my throat and felt very axious and tired at the same time. It scared me and maybe will not take again due to my reaction. Has anyone out there had the same or similar experience?

To my knowledge, the ratio of Sodium Chlorite-to-Citric acid is 1-5. The most recent protocol is Sodium Chlorite 1 drop and Hydrochloric Acid 1 drop and taken with water.

I would recommend dropping the juice, and start with 1 or 2 drops Sodium Chlorite and add 5 or 10 drops Lemon Juice (I use otc LJ concentrate) and again taken with water. Slowly increase number of drops with each passing day.

I breathed in MMS fumes stronger than recommended. Now my congestion has moved to top of the lung and I have a chronic cough. What should I do?

E: Try the herb Mullein Leaf and the supplement Glucosamine, for starters (which will hopefully resolve the problem, let us know).

HI U ESTELLA, , , , , , , , , , have never made ClO2 via MMS method, but made it by the tons using the R-2 process for 40 years in the paper industry. We breathed it when our bleaching residuals got out of hand or we had a leak or a generator controlled explosion. When it got bad, we had to don gas masks because it can give you pneumonia or just flat out kill you.

Myself, I would not breath the gas. I would take it orally as most folks do. We had a tonic that we took to counteract but I've slept since then, so I can't help you.

Hello Estella;

On the MMS "burn"...

I'll give you my idea...maybe the MMS burned the lung and from that open wound you got an infection. Just my wild guess!!!!

If me, I'd get a steam inhaler and use colloidal silver to try and kill the infection ... IF that is what is going on. I'd use the inhaler twice a day for three days and judge if I could tell a positive effect. If so, I keep up for a full week.

I feel urged to make a statement regarding MMS. On research, I would like to withdraw any mention of it being safe and useful. As in the case of parvo, has been done with apparently no ill effects and resulting recovery. I would rather research further afield.

Most people have their resources drained by any medical field and it is imperative to keep cool and not succumb to new medications without being fully aware what one may have to deal with. The bottom line is there are remedies that beneficial and have been proven for centuries. For each sickness there is a remedy aside from chemical substances.

Ordinary people cannot afford a few thousands or for that matter $300 per month to medicate themselves. Common sense indicates that where there is a lucrative market with health, empower yourself and do not fall into the hands of those that profit from your illness. This is also meant to be a general statement as I do not wish to be responsible for any untoward ill effects by taking new products that have a big question mark. Hope this will be of help. Om

Hi; I do so agree with you but here is my story. Last year I had some awful symptoms and hadn't been to a doctor in years.. So sorry I went but when I did they found my blood pressure very high.. At one point I was told to go to the ER.. I didn't and they scared me and so I took the meds.. But I didn't know what they were and I had never taken a pill in my life and I am 59 years old.. Plus I forgot about natural cures so I took the meds because the doctors scared me.. Later on I found this site and other alternative treatments but since the doc gave me beta blockers and they won't help me wean off I unfortunately have to wean myself off.. Someone on this site told me how to do it but again unfortunately I need more meds to cut in half to do that but am working on that.. I am going to make the doctors think they know what they are doing but we know they dont.. Live and Learn...

Om, I love reading your posts but this one I do have to comment on. Have you really tried MMS? It has really done amazing things for my health and very cheap. As well as getting rid of my food allergies (sensitivities really) after spending so much at a naturopath and getting No results!!!

I was not out to get rid of allergies but to kill pathogens in my intestinal tract. And to kill a dog mange I caught from my dog. Has helped so much with both. I even use it in an enema bag. It is very safe!!! I take my anti oxidants in the am and the MMS oxidant at night.

I use it to treat my dog she has way more energy when I give her only one activated drop with 2 tsp of water!!

I have some here in the kitchen for vegetables. It really gets the bugs off of them!

I think you would be thrilled with its applications.

Respectfully, Mary

I really don't enjoy being a big natural medicine truther here, BUT MMS is about as harmful or toxic as, say Cannabis. There is proly no bigger double standard as the labeling and jurisprudence of Alcoholic beverages in comparison to Cannabis. Money and political power simply throws the facts and truth right out the window (hypocrisy).

Thank G, time and the "safety factor", is finally gaining public approval of the wonderful hemp plant.

MMS as converted to Chlorine Dioxide and consumed at recommended doses, IS NOT recognized by the body as "foreign", therefore Jim Humble labels, and promotes it as a natural mineral. I have used MMS on-and-off for over a yr and have no side effects to report other than some stomach discomfort. Surprisingly it was only about two weeks ago that I first did my bicarb/sea salt buffer, then MolyB/Niacinimide (aldehyde remover) PRIOR to a 10 drop dose. The effects began within an hr and continued for about 12; I experienced the most rapid recover to health, in those few hrs, than I have in almost a decade and with no bad side effects (I am now a beleiver).

The world has always been ruled by Money, and there is always the esoteric knowledge of great philosophers, saints, scientist, etc. Jim is a modern day philanthropist of a high order. He has sacrificed his life to the cause of helping people recover from otherwise terminal illnesses. After having read both his books Miracle Mineral Solution Of The 21'st Century, it is obvious that the title is not a false advertisement. Jim has started a church (Genesis 2 Church Of Health And Healing) for the betterment of humanity. He has a personal video on YouTube (sorry no link) of himself reciting one of his poems. It is a rare thing in the modern world to see such a universal character as scientist AND artist. The poem is truly visionary. Jim might be criticized as a "new ager" by the conservatives but he really escapes that label as he incorporates such objectivism, pragmatism, and realism into his thinking.

Many personal testimonies as well as affidavits are currently being compiled as legal documents to the effects of MMS on the human body.

In closing, from personal experience and from others, MMS exist in nature in somewhat the same category as Ozone or O3 as the most powerful germ and pollution killer on the planet. And for a "planet in peril" these two substances are indeed chemical "saviors". And, like the Jesus Christ of Nazareth, will face opposition and persecution.

I am the biggest MMS fan alive, I always make sure my friends know about it, as such, I can guarantee that citric acid worsens side effect and taste of MMS. My advice is; try it with the juice of an organic lemon instead and see it for yourself, it makes the MMS experience much more beneficial as reduces sickness and taste.

Activating MMS with citric acid or lime juice should result in the same chemical formula that does the job. I am not able to understand why lime juice would have less side effects than citric acid... The only thing I can think of is if it is not activating the MMS properly and therefore, less effective, leading to reduced side effects?

Dear Ted,

I am just going to pray that somehow that this desperate letter has a chance to cross your way. I have been desperately seeking info on the caustic efects of mixing a stabilized oxygen supplement consisting of sodium chloride, ozone, traceminerals, and distilled water with a pasturized, fortified from concentrate orange juice (vit d and calcium too. ) No one in the world can answer this question. However it is spoken of even on my supplement.

When it comes to MMS, everyone knows not to mix it with orange juice. Yet no one will say why? If I am starting with a ultra-concentrated stabilized oxygen otc solution consisting only of the things listed above- then what possible reactions could be occuring when 1 1/2 droppers full get mixed with the orange juice? I am very confused. It was accidental that it was mixed with o.j. But either way it has been consumed and 6 days have passed, I cannot sleep for I remain unanswered.

My son is here, but he is not anyone that I recognize. Some type of mineral reaction must have occured. Mentally he is like a bomb expert working with absolute knowledge. Physically he is very weak and tired. His face not only lost all of its color and animation, but his pupils have remained huge no matter the time of day. 6 days solid. I am wondering about alcohol poisonings ethyl, methyl, is that something you can help me figure out? I thought maybe hypoglecemic, but blood suga is fine. Bp is fine too. I looked up herx.. That don't seem fit eithr. Maybe you know something im mising. Pls help. I miss my son.

thank you.

How old is your son? The symptoms you discussed are consistant with some types of drug use. Such as speed or cocaine. There is no reason to not at least ask him about this. A lot of people, especially young people like to take such drugs. And what is MMS?

Of course I have no way of knowing if he is taking such drugs. It is worth looking into if he is a teenager or young adult. And if he is freaking out is not going to help him or you. Many parents have to deal with this situation. It is all too common and can be resolved.

Heck, when I was growing up it seemed to me most of my friends were playing around with such drugs. Most of them got over it on their own after a few years....Oscar

The orange jucie vitimin C nutrilizes the MMS. Use a small amout of apple juice that has no significant C. The 100% Vitimin C is just a preservative for juices. Do not use that.

I'm all for natural cures, but I don't think MMS should be freely consumed. I think it can be extremely dangerous. I have tried it a few times. It caused severe diarrhea at the very least, no matter how careful I was with the dosage increase. In fact, MMS makes my pupils dilate like you mentioned, and my skin very greasy (like the other poster said, feels like you are on meth/speed during this detox stage, which I have also used in my college years so I can relate). Is your son sleeping and eating normally? That would be your first clue about amphetamine use. I relate it to the initial detox stages I have experienced them before as a result of drastic detox fasts (on water only, and also using the Master Cleanse/ lemon diet, from 10 to 20 days).

Here is my two cents after a lot of experimentation: you can't cut corners with your health. If it took you years to get toxic, it will take years to detox. There is no magic bullet. Some things (such as MMS and fasts) CAN help you speed up things for sure, but be careful: you need to be assisted by someone who is qualified to help you because your body can only take so much herx. We really need to move away from this habit of thinking we can solve all our our health problems with an overnight miracle solution, be it MMS, antibiotics, cortisone, or whatever. These compounds are not freely available in nature for a reason. They don't grow on trees in amounts we can easily consume, and our genetic code developed over thousands of year without them. They are not nutrients, we don't need them, it's a marketing plot to benefit the powers that be.

Also, stop thinking in terms of viruses and bacteria. I see a lot of posts where people are fighting them like they are the ultimate enemy. They are not. We need a healthy balance of bacteria in us to handle digestion and additional vitamin production in our guts. Most people interpret detox symptoms as "I got a bug". It's not true. These things exist in nature in a symbiotic relationship to us. They are not the enemy. If they are out of control is because your immune system is weak What I found out in my 4 years of moving away from the existing disaster that is our current medical sciences is that our bodies are perfect and will fight all diseases so long the immune system is in a position to do so. We all get "cancer" every day for example, but our defenses will rid of the problem if everything is up to speed. All chronic diseases are a result of a mix of toxicity plus mal-nutrition. Remove toxicity and improve nutrition and your problems will go away one by one.

My suggestion: no matter what you have, up your nutrition by eating raw, unprocessed, possibly organic, whole foods. Spare your blood filter (liver) by avoiding alcohol, artificial chemicals of any kind, excessive oil/fats, etc. Get rid of everything that is refined, canned, and packaged. Avoid sugar like the plague (think about, in nature we only find sugar in fruits, pretty much). Avoid animal products. When was the last time you jumped on a cow carcass to feed yourself? There is a reason meat is kept in the fridge or consumed with preserving chemicals, it's because it's rotting! Eat lots of uncooked leafy greens. Go for fiber with legumes, brown rice and beans to keep things moving with the benefit of extra nutrients. Drink LOTS of water (research the watercure, it cured my alcoholism of 10 years). Do not consume genetically modified foods.

Good luck! Take it as a process, it will take time and adjustment. But the end result is worth it! We are not meant to be sick, we were created in perfect health, and we need to move back to that. Don't let anyone else tell you are defective, it's simply not true. Question everyone and everything that is pitching you something for personal gain (ie: follow the money trail).

If MMS detox feels like you are on amphetamines this might not be due to MMS exactly but because most likely you might be infected with worms. Ascaris Lumbriocoides is one of those parasites that creates toxins like MDA, morphine and others. They do not like MMS. They empty themselves in you when you consume MMS contributing hugely to diarrhea overresponse.

Look for talks from Andreas Kalcker. He has covered MMS and parasites extensively. That would be the place to start.

If you are having a reaction like you are, it is because of the toxic level of substances in your system. You said no matter what you had Diarrhea, well that means your body was de-toxing and should have never stopped until it all stopped happening. It means it was expelling all of your toxins as fast as possible, which comes out your anal cavity, your skin, any way your body can expell it. But once it finally stops, then you you know you have finally achieved detox and you will feel the healthy feeling kick in for sure. Gerson's juice and coffee enema's do exactly the same thing and more, when you body it getting rid of toxins it comes out anyway it can, and you just supplement with Potassium and Iodine to compensate for the excess diarrhea while your body is expelling. But MMS is doing it job and it is making your body get the junk out of it. So that is the best I can tell you. We have used it for every thing, eye drops, douche for women, curing colds & flus, curing almost all pains, in teeth, brushing and breath, skin issues which go away quickly after use. Its works every time. Yet I have read every stupid thing out there saying don't use MMS......don't believe anyone...MMS works.

I started taking mms 3 days ago and last night I went up to 3 drops which I took at about 1am, following the proper protocol of coarse. I had a bit of green and blacks dark choc before I took the mms, which may or may not have reacted badly. Anyway, ive been up all night vomiting and having diarhea which I have heard can happen, but what worries me is, I am getting bad stomach pain and cannot get to sleep, its like massive cramps that come and go and seem to be worse depending on how I lay, sit etc. Im just so bloody tired and weak now it's insane. Im gonna jump back into bed and try to sleep again. If anyone has any ideas why this happened or any tips to stop it happening again, id really appreciate it. Thanks.

Do not use vitamin C with oxygen, you are using oxidants and antioxidants at the same time, it is confusing to the body and should be spaced out ate least eight hours apart.

I wanted to try MMS for myself, I had no illnesses or discomforts but needed to know what it would do to a healthy female aprox 115lbs 5ft 3in. My first dose was as per the protocal (1drop mms per 2drop of cit acid) pure lemon juice. I only used 2 drops because I didn't want to dilute the solution too much. One drop did nothing, I felt nothing at all, no effect. So I waited about 35-40min and did it again, still nothing. I didn't want to overdo it so I went to bed and the next morning took 3 drops w/the six drops of lemon juice (fresh squeezed. By the way on all tries I did wait the 4 min before adding the water and drinking. It turns a deep yellow. Anyhow, 3 drops did nothing so I kept adding drops till I got up to 6 and still nothing, so I got anxious as to why I still had no effect ie: heat, nausia, diareaha (spelling)dizziness.. Nothing.

So I jumped to 9drops impatiently and thats when it hit me. I felt miserable almost like getting the flu. My head ached (not hurt) my body was weak.. The whole day went on like this with a little diareaha (spelling). I did not eat dinner I went to bed w/a headache and in the morning felt brand new, like I could outrun my dog and I am pushing 44. I kept going without ill effect untill I reached 15 drops and still no ill effect. That one little spout of found germ or whatever and it was over. I only take it on an empty stomach and wait the 4 min before adding water. I am still doing 15 drops 2x s a day. I even give it to my dog. She did not get sick up to 3drops. She is a pit and about 65lbs.

Please read this article if you are using or intend to use MMS. I don't even quite know what this product is but after reading what the letters stood for on this site it somehow didn't feel like something I would be willing to use. I have read quite a few postings about the side effects of MSM on this site. Aren't people maybe mixing MSM with MMS? MSM seems to be quite safe.... I would like to try it for my allergies but to be honest I am afraid after reading the experiences other people had. Still... People might be mixing up the two, or maybe not, I don't know! I am about to read a book about it. Here in Europe MSM is commonly sold in health food shops, no idea about MMS.

I decided to give MMS a try and pretty much knocked me out of commission with only 1 drop. An entire weekend laying in bed with severe diarrhea, vomitting, nausea, and couldn't eat or hold anything down for an entire day. Threw my system completely out of whack. Have been taking vitamin C just trying to clear out that 1 drop. I was healthy before, so really had no reason to take it. I think I'll leave it on the shelf until I'm actually sick and desperate, swine flu, malaria, ebola...

my mom says the reason it makes you sick like that is because it's fighting to push out the illness or problem you are trying to cure. It makes you sick for a reason. That's really a good thing. When you are not nauseous anymore you are probably cured of your illness

Replied by Jack

Hmm, I tried two drops of the solution in a drink and took it twice with no bad "side effects" but then again I am pretty healthy with the exception of eosinophilic disorders. It could just be that your body has a lot of toxins/pathogens/whatever sickness is in your body to begin with.

I tried my MMS around the first of the year. Got up to 9 drops twice per day -- no problems. Work schedule changed and got away from taking it. Decided to restart this past week. I did 2 drops/10 citric acid... no problems. Then took 3 drops/15 citric acid. Within one hour and by the second I was having intense double over cramping.. thought I was going to pass out. No diarrhea, no headache, no nausea.. just crippling intestinal cramps. I popped three 500mg vitamin C tablets and about 1 hour or so later the cramping stopped. However, I stopped MMS. Tried again 3 days later.. same problem. Yesterday, restarted BUT this time made a fresh batch of citric acid (1/2 tsp citric acid nine 1/2 tsp measurements of filtered water) When I retarted a week ago, I used the citric acid mix I had from the first of the year. With the fresh batch of citric acid, I am not having any difficulties now. I am sure that the citric acid went bad or neutralized itself or something... I do remember thinking I could not smell the MMS gas hardly at all when activated. Now I smell the gas of MMS when activated with fresh citric acid during the three minute wait. I use about 3/4 cup of filtered bottled water to drink this down. The citric acid gives the water a slight lemon flavor. I will only make this small batch of citric acid, renewing every week. Of note: I did not keep my originally mixed citric acid in the refrigerator, but kept it in a dark cool place.

Questions: How long does a large batch of citric acid last in effectiveness to activate the MMS? What type of water are you using? Where do you keep yours stored? Over time, can the citric acid become weak and not properly activate and release the gas from the MMS?

I hope this helps..... fresh citric acid made the difference for me. Take care.

MMS Death: I have used MMS for 2 weeks, and found a dramatic improvement to toenail fungi. 6 drops daily. I have given MMS to 9 other people who had flu symptoms, with great success. 6 drops, with a 1 hour wait, and a further 6 drops. So a total of 12drops each. Silvie a 52year old healthy woman, who's only concern was that she ate meat and therefore thought she had parasites, took 2 drops at 9am, within 10mins had a violent reaction, vomiting, diarreha, up until her death at 10pm. Obviously this is of great concern.

WOW, this is too bad. Antidote for MMS is vitamin C. First I ever heard of hope the last. Wonder if it set some latent disease the MMS triggered, of course this is speculation. Are they going to do an autopsy? For future user of MMS which I think is a good remedy don't forget to have vitamin C on hand.

Malaika, I agree that your report is of "great concern." Having read a bit about MMS, I am very skeptical about the safety of such a remedy. Chlorine is, quite simply, a poisonous chemical and is not typically thought to be safe for human consumption. I am open to the idea of natural remedies and use the Apple Cider Vinegar and several other things myself. However, at some point, a healthy skepticism is in order. There is no evidence that the promoter of MMS is qualified to assure anyone that it is safe. I think people would be well-advised to think twice before ingesting chlorine-based products of any kind. While some people may report positive results, we should always remember that anecdotal evidence has its limitations, and risks should be taken into consideration.

the cause of death was not considered the mms but it did say she died of a condition that can be linked to an overdose of chlorite or chlorate but they also think the dose she said she took and the actual dose she would of had to of taken to overdose to that extent are very different amounts, a man in china tried to commit suicide by ingesting sodium chlorite and took 10 grams he did become quite ill and went into temporary renal failure but is fine now, 10 grams is ALOT his saturation level was 43% that level being taken as soon as he got to hospital a short time after taking it and sylvia's was 45% 9 hors after ingesting so I dont want to speak ill of the dead or a grieving husband but she had to of taken a huge amount OR her death was a coincidence and caused by something unrelated to the mms!

I have started the MMS, perfectly following the directions. Increasing one drop at a time with the citric acid solution (using lime juice). I was tired the first few days, not feeling real well, but not nauseated. By the 7th drop, I began to vomit as I never had before. I felt as if pieces of my throat and esophagus would be coming out! I literally felt like I was going to die. I did not know about the chlorine dioxide poisoning possibility. For several hours, I felt like death. Today I have rashes. I don't know if it is related. But I will NEVER take another drop of this stuff. I obviously do my own research a lot, as medical doctors have virtually never helped me. But something with these kinds of side effects, not proven, is not worth the risk, I say!

Hello Kathy,

Google "Herximer reaction" and see if that fits the reaction you had to the MMS. This is what Humble said happens when you have a massive infection and so many pathogens are killed off that it overwhelms the immune system and the body goes into high gear to rid itself of the dead pathogens and toxins their demise caused. You feel like a sudden onset of the flu with horrible nausea and vomiting and usually also diarrhea is involved. Fortunately it is usually over with 3 - 4 hours later, but during those few hours you really feel like you'd have to get better to die.

People need to realize that mms taken the first time will do a cleanse. Also the bee keepers in the USA with colony collapse should give some mms to their bees to boost their immune system. Tomstyn

I don't care that this is 7 years old post. Here are my 13 cents. I experienced those symptoms on the 4th day of water fasting. Similar symptoms when I suddenly increased h2o2 (hydrogen peroxide) drops. So you were you saying I ingested Clo2 when I water fasted? Herx symptoms, toxins getting released and parasites dying, you are feeling their death (until you expel them) People will perish for the lack of knowledge.

I have had Candida for many years and it has mainly affected my teeth and gums. Otherwise I thought I was healthy. I started MMS about a year ago and also brushed my teeth with it. After about two weeks my teeth turned black and it took about two months of brushing with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to get them back to normal. After about 8 weeks on MMS I got to 2 times a day 12 drops plus 60 drops of citric acid and experienced diarrhea for several days. I then cut down to 2 x 10 drops and got vomiting, diarrhea, heart racing and sweats like I never experienced before. I really thought I was dying and had to stop the MMS. Months later I started again thinking that maybe I was very sick and did not know about it, since we all have pathogens in our body. Again, I felt very tired. I had to sit and rest when I walked my dog the usual 15 minutes in the morning. My urine and saliva pH dropped to below 4. They were so acid that it was not even on the chart anymore. My eyes turned red and my kidneys started hurting. So I had to stop again. Recently I gave it another try with twice a day 1 and then 2 drops. No nausea but my eyesight turned blurry and my kidneys hurt so bad I could hardly sit or stand. Unfortunately, my eyesight seems to be getting worse and not better even after I stopped the product about 2 months ago. I really don't know whether MMS is clearing something very serious in my body or if it is a harmful poison. I thought I was healthy before I started taking it.

MMS is the one product I would want with me should I need to go abroad or camping locally. I must confess it does scare the heck out of me, I don't like to feel off kilter in any way. And it can make you feel real "off" when you take a drop too many. I have used it on occasion to significantly reduce illness time. I noticed how when the whole family got Rotavirus, I dosed everyone , kids included with mms - except my husband. We all had a day of discomfort. He spent five days between bed and the toilet. Admittedly, it was very unnerving to watch my baby projectile vomit and go limp during one particularly bad flu episode. I wondered how I would explain to the emergency unit that I had poisoned my child with mms. But within a few minutes, the same child brightened up - viola- illness over. Just lately I went to get another bottle at my local health shop. (They didn't know what it was when I bought my first bottle). They said that the supplier recently went cold. A few phone calls later, it became evident that the local producer had vanished without a trace. What is with that? Horrific timing I might add. Our once in a lifetime family holiday consisted of nursing sick kids and enduring anxiety attacks froom dodgey cough meds and well intentioned doctor's treatments. I don't wish to be caught without it again. The side effects of OTC, antibiotics, cortisone etc, are too horrendous for words.

Recently I recommended my mother try hydrogen peroxide, which she did , with amazing results. I wish more true healers with scientific knowledge would get involved. MMS is great but something does feel a bit dodge. I have wondered about the possibility of a lowered immunity when taking it over time for every sniffle. It doesn't help either that one in every ten comments is from a nay sayer. The stuff clearly has no competition. More forums are needed and more studies - lab rats anyone?

I'm sitting here reading through the comments about MMS and have decided it's not worth the risk. I really feel badly for those who put their faith in it, some multiple times, and didn't get anywhere but sick or, in one case, dead.

Regarding the flu or colds, what I do now is take medicinal mushrooms if I feel the least bit off. Usually, I find I just felt off, no illness develops at all. But, when it turns out I do have a virus, I will know my body is fighting it, with the help of the mushrooms, and I just keep taking them until I'm better, and then, and this is important, I keep taking them for several days after symptoms are gone.

I have used a variety of mushroom capsules but more recently use mostly Reishi mushroom capsules. There are many companies supplying mushrooms in capsule and tincture forms. The only side effect I've noticed is an increase in energy so sometimes I take them for that, too. I will also pop a capsule of elderberry and one or two of oil of oregano.

If I ever find I have a more serious illness, I would not be opposed to trying hydrogen peroxide orally. I've had ozone administered to stop the flu twice before I got onto mushrooms, and it worked by the next day. I was worse driving home and well the next morning, so I do believe in oxidative therapies, but ozone administered by a naturopath is spendy. I'll stick with mushrooms, elderberry and oregano and probably will eventually try hydrogen peroxide. And, I'd vote for anyone else trying these things before taking MMS. Apparently, one has no idea how they may react to MMS, even just a couple of drops in some cases. If you are concerned about parasites, there are numerous tried and true natural methods for eliminating parasites that likely would not place you at risk of ending up in the hospital.....or the morgue!

If you had candida you weren't healthy. I think it's cleansing you and bringing your problems to the surface.

I'm on MMS for long-standing Candida and Lyme's Disease. I think the Candida must be so embedded in my since I've had it for so long and did not take care of myself by continuing to eat junk. This stuff is making me soooo sick, I think. I wake up in the morning feeling weird -- like I'm literally going to die. Don't know if it's low blood pressure or what but it's like the life force is leaving me. Very scary. Also, anxiety and depression have risen to monumental levels. Had to go back on small dose of anti-depressant just to function. I have to go to work after all. I am only up to two drops of this stuff and that's after a couple of months of one drop. Maybe it's too much? How do you know when you're better?

dear Bonnie,

I am sorry for your suffering. I recognize alot of your symptoms. What helped me the most when my body was so broken down from similar issues was when I started taking a small dosage of q10 (30 mg) but mainly when I started taking magnesium. Give this a try , both candida and lymes severely deplete the body of magnesium... I mean severely and most do better by taking it. Like I wrote in another post there are a few good froms of magnesium that can help with anxiety and they are magnesium taurate, magnesium glycinate and magnesium oil. From my experience and from reading lots of other peoples testimonies these are the ones that work the best. Infact some magnesium made me feel worse so if i were you I would start with one of the above ( but ya everyone is different). when you get your magnesium supply up perhaps you can start taking a multivitamin to not throw off your calcium levels. Give it a try with the magnesium, for me I was able to tell very fast.

One other thing you could do is see how you handle your essential fatty acids like omega three and omega 6 ( borage oil or primrose) when I take fish oil my anxiety gets alot worse. I now take flaxseed oil ( omega three)and when I add in omega 6 I feel even better. Just a thought. You could try one or the other for a few days and see how you feel.

Perhaps you can start eating a bowel of cut oats or oatmeal in the morning to keep your blood sugar stable..that will also hep your moods. Low blood sugar attacks can really bring on major anxiety.Oddly enough i can not take apple cider vinagar since my blood pressure gets lower and i get more hypoglycemia symptoms.

Last but least take a probiotic it does not cure anything but i really notice that it lessens the toxic burden on the body. Sorry I have not taken mms so I can't advise you on that. But I really feel for you since I have been there and done that! Good luck and my thoughts are with you.

Here's a very interesting approach to administering MMS, GSE, herbal remedies, garlic and other nasty-tasting natural remedies: You'll need the remedy, a pan or container large enough for you to put at least one foot, flat on the bottom, a pair of cotton socks and some cheapo rubber slip on flip flops - the kind that doesn't have the strap between the toes. Create a strong tea or a 30 drop to one cup of water solution. Put just enough in the pan to soak the bottom of the sock, put your foot in and let the sock soak up the solution, then put on the flip flops. Same with the other foot. You will absorb tiny, continuous amounts through the sole of your foot. Just keep re-wetting the socks with the solution. TIP: wash the socks by hand, first and from that point on, so they don't have fabric softener in them. It may seem weird but if you soak your feet in a strong garlic tea, you will eventually taste garlic in your mouth. It gets in there, somehow. You can do the same with "clay water", for a general cleanse, to draw toxins OUT. That's a sort of trial and error thing, depending on the type of clay you're using. You just want clay water - I. E. You don't want your foot sliding around in your flip flops. You can add GSE or MMS to destroy the toxins as they are drawn out so you can just keep wetting the same socks. You can also put dry clay inside your socks as your feet perspire approx 1 cup of water per day.
