About MMS - The Miracle Mineral Solution
Miracle Mineral Solution is a 28% solution of sodium chlorite in distilled water. Miracle Mineral Solution is a water purification product. It is not a mineral supplement nor is it sold as a mineral supplement of any kind. Though often referred to in acronym (i.e. "MMS"), an important distinction must be made between Miracle Mineral Solution and the "MMS Protocol" established by chemist and metallurgist Jim Humble and detailed exhaustively in his book, "Breakthrough, the Miracle Mineral Supplement of the 21st Century".

When Miracle Mineral Solution is activated as detailed in Jim Humble's protocol (1:5 drop solution using vinegar with 5% acetic acid or greater, lemon or lime juice, or a 10% solution of citric acid), the chemical compound chlorine dioxide is produced. What is Chlorine Dioxide?

Chlorine dioxide is a chemical compound with the formula ClO2. Prominent uses include water purification, oral hygiene, and more recently, oral supplementation. According to third party sources:

Chlorine dioxide is used in many industrial water treatment applications as a biocide including cooling towers, process water and food processing.
Chlorine dioxide was the principal agent used in the decontamination of buildings in the United States after the 2001 anthrax attacks.
Chlorine dioxide was also used after Hurricane Katrina (2005) to eradicate dangerous mold from houses inundated by water from massive flooding.
Chlorine dioxide is less corrosive than chlorine and superior for the control of legionella bacteria.
Chlorine dioxide is more effective than chlorine against viruses, bacteria and protozoa � including the cysts of Giardia and the oocysts of Cryptosporidium (parasites).
Chlorine dioxide is the topic of author, scientist, chemist and humanitarian, Jim Humble's book entitled, "Breakthrough, The Miracle Mineral Supplement of the 21st Century". In Breakthrough, Humble describes how he discovered the use of chlorine dioxide as an alternative treatment for Malaria, which has since led to over 75,000 documented successful treatments of the disease in Africa. Humble's research aims to establish MMS as a powerful alternative treatment to many pathogen-borne diseases.
* Chlorine dioxide can be used to kill "disease-bearing bacteria, yeasts, molds, fungi and algae", including MRSA and other deadly pathogens.

Chlorine dioxide is a chemical compound with the formula ClO2. This reddish-yellow gas crystallizes as orange crystals at −59 °C. As one of several oxides of chlorine, it is a potent and useful oxidizing agent used in water treatment and in bleaching.

Chlorine dioxide is used primarily (>95%) for bleaching of wood pulp, but is also used for the bleaching of flour and for the disinfection of municipal drinking water. The Niagara Falls, New York water treatment plant first used chlorine dioxide for drinking water treatment in 1944 for phenol destruction. Chlorine dioxide was introduced as a drinking water disinfectant on a large scale in 1956, when Brussels, Belgium, changed from chlorine to chlorine dioxide. Its most common use in water treatment is as a pre-oxidant prior to chlorination of drinking water to destroy natural water impurities that produce trihalomethanes on exposure to free chlorine. Trihalomethanes are suspect carcinogenic disinfection by-products associated with chlorination of naturally occurring organics in the raw water. Chlorine dioxide is also superior to chlorine when operating above pH7, in the presence of ammonia and amines and/or for the control of biofilms in water distribution systems. Chlorine dioxide is used in many industrial water treatment applications as a biocide including cooling towers, process water and food processing. Chlorine dioxide is less corrosive than chlorine and superior for the control of legionella bacteria.

It is more effective as a disinfectant in most circumstances than chlorine against water borne pathogenic microbes such as viruses[1] , bacteria and protozoa – including the cysts of Giardia and the oocysts of Cryptosporidium.

The use of chlorine dioxide in water treatment leads to the formation of the by-product chlorite which is currently limited to a maximum of 1 ppm in drinking water in the USA. This EPA standard limits the use of chlorine dioxide in the USA to relatively high quality water or water which is to be treated with iron based coagulants. (Iron can reduce chlorite to chloride.)

It can also be used for air disinfection, and was the principal agent used in the decontamination of buildings in the United States after the 2001 anthrax attacks. Recently, after the disaster of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana and the surrounding Gulf Coast, chlorine dioxide has been used to eradicate dangerous mold from houses inundated by water from massive flooding.

Chlorine dioxide is used as an oxidant for phenol destruction in waste water streams, control of zebra and quagga mussels in water intakes and for odor control in the air scrubbers of animal byproduct (rendering) plants.

Stabilized chlorine dioxide can also be used in an oral rinse to treat oral disease and malodor, but its adverse side-effects are still being investigated.

New MRSA Bacteria Killer Registered by EPA
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has recently registered a new product for preventing and eliminating methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which causes potentially deadly infections commonly known as "staph" infections. The MRSA "super bug" is typically contracted in hospitals, in other healthcare environments, and in health clubs and locker rooms.

The EPA has registered Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide) (chlorine dioxide) for use as a disinfectant on hard, non-porous surfaces and instruments, including those used within hospitals and other medical settings. As a no-wipe, no-rinse spray, Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide) chlorine dioxide can also be used on hard, non-porous surfaces in health clubs, spas, public places and swimming facilities as a treatment against MRSA. The EPA has also registered Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide)� as a disinfectant for vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis, athlete's foot, Mycobacterium bovis (TB) and other pathogens that spread in many environments.

MRSA is usually spread by direct physical contact with those already infected or through indirect contact by touching objects (towels, clothes, sports equipment, etc.) that infected skin has contaminated. Consequently, any heavily trafficked area can be a source of infection.

According to a report by the BBC News, "Staphylococcus aureus is the leading cause of human infections in the skin and soft tissues, bones and joints, abscesses and normal heart valves. It flourishes in the hospital setting, producing bloodstream and surgical wound infections, including MRSA." (news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4671585.stm)


Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide) is greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide, an ideal biocide because of its ability to kill viruses, bacteria, fungi, and algae at low saturation levels (parts per million) in a manner that does not allow pathogens to build resistance to the compound.

Prior to Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide), healthcare and health club environments were limited to using substances like bleach and quaternary ammonium compounds that can leave residue and require higher concentrations than does chlorine dioxide to achieve the same antimicrobial efficacy.
Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide)'s chlorine dioxide is produced in water and sprayed, mopped, or sponged onto surfaces that require disinfection. After application, the solution is left on target surfaces and does not require rinsing. Due to the comparatively low application concentrations required to kill pathogens, Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide) is compatible with most materials.


Staphylococcus aureus (SA)-Antibiotic Resistance (General): Throughout history, Staphylococcus aureus (SA) has been a dangerous pathogen once it has successfully breached the normal defense system. The first effective antibiotic against SA, penicillin, became available in the 1940s. Soon after, SA evolved resistance to penicillin, and by the late 1950s, 50 percent of all SA strains were resistant. Today, fewer than 10 percent of SA infections can be cured with penicillin.
The next weapons against SA, methicillin and cephalosporin, became available in the 1960s and 1970s. By the late 1970s, some strains of SA had evolved resistance to these drugs. Today, as many as 50 percent of SA strains isolated from U.S. hospitals are resistant to methicillin. (Source: National Institutes of Health)


Chlorine dioxide is effective at low concentrations across a wide range of pH (roughly 4 to 9), and, because it is a gas in its natural state, dissipates upon exposure to sunlight As a consequence, it is known widely as one of the most effective inhibitors of algae, yeast, mold, fungi and viruses. However, because transporting the gas is prohibited in all but frozen forms, pure chlorine dioxide has heretofore been limited to use in large concerns that employ chemical generators, such as pulp mills (controlling slime) and municipal water systems (water purification applications).

Similarly, in cleaning and antimicrobial knockdown applications, pure chlorine dioxide has been unavailable, and only with "stabilized" solutions or acidified sodium chlorite, which are corrosive and produce significant chemical residues, could any of the advantages of chlorine dioxide be realized.
JUST ADD WATER -- AND WAIT. Now, Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide) brings the power of greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide solutions to point-of-use applications. Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide)� produces chlorine dioxide simply by submersing the product in water. The resulting chlorine dioxide solution can be used to kill disease-bearing bacteria, yeasts, molds, fungi and algae using spraying, washing or "dip" cleaning methods. Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide) makes it possible-for the first time-to generate specific concentrations of chlorine dioxide at the point of use, at neutral pH and with very low residuals, using only tap water.


* US EPA-registered as a disinfectant against MRSA, and other potentially virulent pathogens.

* Pathogens cannot build up resistance to Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide)� because it kills harmful organisms by breaking down cell walls.

* Easy to use and does not require HAZMAT or complicated equipment

* Can be made on-site in specific quantities and in concentrations desired. Only tap water is required to generate the chlorine dioxide.

* Because it kills pathogens with such efficacy, Selectrocide (Chlorine dioxide)� may reduce costs because fewer disinfection treatments may be required during a given maintenance and cleaning cycle.

Jim Humble "MMS Protocol"
The Standard Jim Humble MMS Protocol - by Jim Humble

"Note: When following the instructions below, keep this paragraph in mind. Always activate the MMS drops with one of the food acids, either lemon juice drops, or lime juice drops, or citric acid solution drops (to make citric acid solution add 1 level tablespoon of citric acid and 9 tablespoons of water. Store it in a bottle with a lid). Always use 5 drops of one of these food acids to each one drop of MMS, mix in a empty dry glass and wait at least 3 minutes, then add 1/3 to 2/3 glass of water or juice and drink. (You can expand the 3 minutes out to 10 minutes, and after adding the juice or water you can wait up to an hour before drinking.)

1. All protocol for taking MMS in the Americas starts with one or two drops. Never start with more than one or two drops. People who are very sick and/or sensitive should start with half a drop drop. Activate the drops as given above.

2. If you do OK and do not notice nausea on the first dose, increase by one drop for the second dose. If you notice nausea reduce the amount of MMS for the next dose. Do two doses a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. Continue to increase by one drop each time you take a new dose. When you notice nausea, reduce the dose by one drop, or bad diarrhea reduce by 2 or 3 drops. Usually reduce for one or two times before going back the amount that it took to make you nauseous.

Note: If you notice diarrhea, or even vomiting that is not a bad sign. The body is simply throwing off poisons and cleaning itself out. Everyone says that they feel much better after the diarrhea. You do not have to take any medicine for the diarrhea. It will go away as fast as it came. It will not last. It is not real diarrhea as the body is just cleaning out, and it is not caused by bacteria or virus. When the poison is gone, the diarrhea is gone.

3. Continue to follow the procedure given in 2 above. Until you reach 15 drops twice a day without nausea. At that point increase to 3 times a day. Stay at 3 times a day for at least one week and then reduce the drops to 4 to 6 drops a day for older people and 4 to 6 drops twice a week for younger people.
Once you have completed step 3 above most of the viral, bacteria, mold, and yeast load will be gone from your body. Your body will be clean. You no longer have to worry about feeding the microorganism load. You can base you diet on nutrition, rather than not feeding the load. The diabetes will be gone, thus you no longer need to worry about sugar. You won't have to worry about the pancreas over reacting thus giving you a shock of insulin. Instead it will give you just enough insulin to knock the blood sugar lever to the right level (You won't feel sleepy after eating a candy bar). Your body will then be able to easily adsorb vitamins and minerals and many other nutrients it might have been missing up to this time. You should feel better as time goes by. Do not quit taking the MMS.

Note: For Children: The protocol for children is essentially the same. One should usually start at 1/2 drop. Just make a one drop drink and pour out 1/2 of the drink before giving it to the child. Then increase from 1 to 2 to 3 drops as given above, but do not go beyond 3 drops for each 25 pounds (11.4 kg) of body weight."

Vitamin C, Antioxidants and Immune Builders

Vitamin C and other antioxidants can interfere with this treatment!!

They interfere so much so that this treatment should not be taken at the same time as certain other alternative cancer treatments which include vitamin C, other antioxidants or immune builders. The following information from the Bill Henderson Newsletter will clarify these points:

• They had started with just 2 drops of the MMS and worked up to a dose of 15 drops, twice a day. for ten days. There was no noticeable effect -- no nausea, no diarrhea -- nothing. They were aware of the effect of Vitamin C on the MMS, so they had moved the Heart Plus and Daily Advantage to later in the day.

They did some research, though, and found that the Beta 1,3D Glucan immune stimulant is a strong anti-oxidant also. They were taking it at roughly the same time as the MMS. As soon as they stopped taking the Beta Glucan for a couple of days, the MMS had an immediate effect -- diarrhea, cleansing -- the whole thing.
(Chemist) I am a chemist who bought your (previous edition) book and am receiving your e-newsletter (and I have cancer). I am not surprised to finally read in letter #114 that anti-oxidants 'kill' MMS. They should. And that’s what I have been telling a friend of mine who has lung cancer. However, anti-oxidants stay in the body for more than three hours. Ideally, if you have enough protection, you should have a more or less permanent steady state of them. The beta-glucan instance, where the people waited three DAYS, certainly suggests this also. I am not sure what the solution to the problem is, but if I were taking MMS (and I intend to) I would stop all anti-oxidants for a while to let the MMS work unhindered."

(Bill Henderson) As I mentioned in my last newsletter, the MMS is still in an experimental stage. I would certainly heed Robert Peterson's advice. At least try discontinuing your use of the Beta Glucan, the Heart Plus and the Daily Advantage for a couple of weeks while you take the MMS. You need to be the judge of whether it is working for you. If you experience the normal MMS diarrhea after you stop the anti-oxidants, then it is probably working for you. This should not continue for long (a day or so). Then, you should begin to have normal bowel movements with no constipation.
Bill Henderson Newsletter

In other words, do NOT use the chlorine dixoide protocol at the same time as any substance which has Vitamin C, or any other antioxidant, including immune builders. Wait at least a couple of days after discontinuing these treatments before starting the chlorine dioxide treatment.

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a gas that can be used for water disinfection. To date, only uncut and unpeeled produce can be contacted with ClO2. Chlorine dioxide has been given a USDA 3-D approval for washing fruits and vegetables to be used as ingredients of meat and poultry products.1 Chlorine dioxide is normally made at the point of use (on-site). Chlorine dioxide can be made by mixing sodium chlorite (NaClO2) with hydrochloric acid (HCl). Bio-Cide International's (BCI) product, PurogeneTM, produces chlorine dioxide when combined with low pH (acidic) water or weak acids.
Some benefits of chlorine dioxide disinfection include longer shelf-life of produce, minimal equipment corrosion, significantly less water use, reduced chemical costs, and reduced packinghouse sanitation costs.

The sanitation of wastewater with chlorine dioxide is caused by oxidation. It undergoes oxidation to affect the reproduction and metabolism of microorganisms. This results in disinfected water and produce surfaces through a reduction of pathogen populations. Chlorine dioxide has over two and a half times the oxidation power of chlorine.
A microorganism is any yeast, mold, bacteria, protozoa, or virus. A pathogen is a disease or injury causing microorganism. Pathogens of interest in the fresh produce industry include E. coli, Cyclospora, Salmonella, and Hepatitis. A cyst is a protective coating for a dormant microorganism, and an ova is a female germ that is capable of reproducing.
Chlorine dioxide will cause suspended particles in solution to attract each other, allowing them to be easily filtered. Because of this, "cloudy" water is readily cleaned by chlorine dioxide along with a filter.

Chlorine dioxide is effective against a variety of pathogens, but has limitations. Mold and yeast spores are reduced 80 to 99% by chlorine dioxide concentrations of 0.75 to 5 ppm (parts per million) in water. Bacteria and viruses are also greatly reduced with the use of chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is effective as a USDA P-1 bactericide.1 One specific pathogen of interest, the cryptosproidium oocyst, is effectively destroyed with chlorine dioxide. However, most cysts and ova must be removed by filtration. A 5 micron filter will significantly reduce spores and cysts.

Chlorine dioxide gas kills dangerous biological contaminants

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The same sanitizing agent used to rid federal office buildings of anthrax – chlorine dioxide gas – can effectively eliminate deadly bacteria from apples and other fruits and vegetables, according to Purdue University researchers.

Scientists at Purdue began experiments using the gas to kill pathogens found on food long before anthrax was detected in mail sent to offices in New York and Washington, D.C., shortly after the terrorist attacks one year ago. The latest university test measured how effectively different potencies of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) gas used over various periods of time could kill Listeria monocytogenes cells on apples.

Results of the study, published in the September issue of Food Microbiology, demonstrated that the vapor was able to eradicate all of the contaminant on the fruit's skin and significantly reduce the bacteria in the stem cavity and the calyx, said Richard Linton, director of Purdue's Center for Food Safety Engineering and senior author. The calyx is the apple's bottom, directly opposite from the stem cavity.

"We see more and more cases of food-borne diseases associated with fruits and vegetables," Linton said. "Some of this is because we encourage people, especially children and the elderly, to eat more and more of these types of foods for added health benefits. Yet these are two of the groups most susceptible to bacteria on food.

"Just 10 to 100 cells of Listeria on a piece of food can cause illness, and it's possible for 1,000 to 10,000 cells to be on a piece of fruit. We need to develop ways to make food safer; traditional sanitation methods to remove pathogens are not effective enough to meet these new standards."
Although Listeria is relatively rare, it is considered the most deadly of the food-borne pathogens with a 20 percent fatality rate. The Clinton administration issued a "no tolerance" edict for Listeria in processed and ready-to-eat foods, such as hot dogs, and in dairy products. Under the policy, if one organism is found on a piece of food, the whole batch must be discarded and/or recalled from stores, warehouses and consumers' shelves.

In addition, the FDA requires that sanitizers be effective enough to reduce organisms by at least 100,000 fold for Listeria, E. coli O157:H7, and Salmonella. In this study, Linton and his team achieved this level of Listeria elimination on the apple skin. Even on the stem cavity and calyx, the gas reduced the pathogen to a far greater extent than currently possible with other methods.

Another of the paper's authors, Purdue food science researcher Yingchan Han, said one reason Listeria was used for the study is because it's hardy; it can survive in refrigeration and is difficult to inactivate.
"Using the chlorine dioxide gas makes it possible to reduce the bacteria before the apples are cut up or mashed, a significant breakthrough for decontamination processes at small juice-producing companies," Han said. "They often don't have the pasteurization heating systems necessary to meet USDA requirements for eliminating biological contaminants. These processors produce unpasteurized juice."

The chlorine dioxide process is "extraordinarily" better than other chemical methods of eliminating pathogens on produce, he said. In the current research, the chlorine dioxide gas, used at a concentration of 4 mg per liter for 30 minutes, lowered the Listeria organisms a minimum of more than 1,000-fold for all three areas of apple tested. On the pulp, the average was more than a 100,000-fold reduction. These results support previous test results when Purdue scientists used the gas to sanitize green peppers.

Linton said the gas is so effective because it's a strong oxidizing agent. "Oxidizing agents disrupt the cell membrane, in this case of the bacteria, and this causes the cell to die," he said. "The chlorine dioxide gas is 1,000 times more effective than any other method tried so far for eliminating food-borne pathogens."

He and Han said they don't believe this process will work well on already cut fruits and vegetables, and not at all for some varieties, such as lettuce, because it would likely affect the color. However, they will be testing the gas on other pathogens, such as Salmonella or E. coli, and on other foods. They also will be determining ways to make the process viable for use by commercial food producers.

The other scientist involved in this study was Jinhua Du.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture funded this research.
Purdue's Center for Food Safety Engineering includes nearly 90 university scientists collaborating with USDA-Agricultural Research Service scientists to find faster, more exact ways to detect biological and chemical food-borne contaminants and to protect against them.

Alternaria alternata has been recorded causing leaf spot and other diseases on over 380 host species. It is opportunistic pathogen on numerous hosts causing leaf spots, rots and blights on many plant parts. It also causes upper respiratory tract infections in AIDS patients and asthma in people with sensitivity.

Résumé / Abstract
The efficacy of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) gas at very low concentrations for hyphal growth of Alternaria alternata related to fungal allergy was evaluated using a fungus detector. The fungus detector is a plastic sheet with a drop of spore-suspending medium, and it makes possible clear observations of hyphal growth with a light microscope. ClO2 gas (average 0.075 ppm, 0.21 μg/l) inhibited hyphal growth of the fungus, but not germination of fungal spores. The hyphal length was more than 1780 μm under air conditions (control) and 49±17 μm under ClO2 gas conditions for 72 h. According to the international chemical safety card, threshold limit values for ClO2 gas are 0.1 ppm as an 8-h time-weight average and 0.3 ppm as a 15 min short-term exposure limit. From these data, we propose that treatment with ClO2 gas at very low concentrations in space is a useful tool for the growth inhibition of fungi in the fields of food, medicine, etc. without adverse effects.

Protective effect of low-concentration chlorine dioxide gas against influenza A virus infection


Influenza virus infection is one of the major causes of human morbidity and mortality. Between humans, this virus spreads mostly via aerosols excreted from the respiratory system. Current means of prevention of influenza virus infection are not entirely satisfactory because of their limited efficacy. Safe and effective preventive measures against pandemic influenza are greatly needed. We demonstrate that infection of mice induced by aerosols of influenza A virus was prevented by chlorine dioxide (ClO2) gas at an extremely low concentration (below the long-term permissible exposure level to humans, namely 0.1 p.p.m.). Mice in semi-closed cages were exposed to aerosols of influenza A virus (1 LD50) and ClO2 gas (0.03 p.p.m.) simultaneously for 15 min. Three days after exposure, pulmonary virus titre (TCID50) was 102.6±1.5 in five mice treated with ClO2, whilst it was 106.7±0.2 in five mice that had not been treated (P=0.003). Cumulative mortality after 16 days was 0/10 mice treated with ClO2 and 7/10 mice that had not been treated (P=0.002). In in vitro experiments, ClO2 denatured viral envelope proteins (haemagglutinin and neuraminidase) that are indispensable for infectivity of the virus, and abolished infectivity. Taken together, we conclude that ClO2 gas is effective at preventing aerosol-induced influenza virus infection in mice by denaturing viral envelope proteins at a concentration well below the permissible exposure level to humans. ClO2 gas could therefore be useful as a preventive means against influenza in places of human activity without necessitating evacuation.


Among the most frequent infections of the upper and lower respiratory tracts in humans are those caused by influenza A virus, an enveloped, negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus (Skehel & Hay, 1978 ; Ghendon et al., 1981 ; McCauley & Mahy, 1983 ). In a typical year, the virus infects 15–20 % of the population, causing >500 000 deaths worldwide (Thompson et al., 2003 ; WHO, 2003 ), but the most frightening effects are seen when new strains of virus emerge, resulting in devastating pandemics (Reid & Taubenberger, 2003 ). Current reports of avian-to-human transmission of influenza A virus, particularly of the H5N1 subtype, make the prospect of new pandemics particularly alarming (Webby & Webster, 2003 ; Webster et al., 2007 ). It cannot be overemphasized that novel strains of influenza virus have the potential to cause devastating pandemics in the near future (Palese, 2004 ). In the past century, three outbreaks of influenza virus infection have caused significant numbers of human fatalities. Among them, the 1918 strain was particularly notable for its infectivity and the severity of the disease (Kong et al., 2006 ).

As with many respiratory viruses, influenza virus spreads in the air as aerosols (droplets) expelled from an infected human. It needs to attach to and penetrate target cells to establish infection (Wagner et al., 2002 ). The principal route of entry of the virus into target cells takes place by binding to a receptor on the surface of a respiratory-tract epithelial cell, with subsequent transfer of viral genetic materials into the infected cell (Wagner et al., 2002 ). The envelope of the influenza virus carries two major surface glycoproteins, haemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) (EC 3 . 2 . 1 . 18). HA plays a key role in initiating viral infection by binding to sialic acid-containing receptors on host cells and mediates viral entry into cells and fusion with the cellular membrane (Tsuchiya et al., 2001 ; Wagner et al., 2002 ; Bentz & Mittal, 2003 ). At a later stage of infection, NA also plays a key role by releasing sialic acid residues from the surface of progeny virus particles and from the infected cell, facilitating viral release (Solorzano et al., 2000 ; Wagner et al., 2002 ; Gong et al., 2007 ). When influenza virus is deficient in NA activity, progeny virus particles aggregate at the surface of the infected cell, severely impairing further spread of the virus to other cells. Both HA and NA are indispensable for successful infection and spread of this virus. Several antiviral compounds, such as zanamivir, oseltamivir and resveratrol, have been developed, but their long-term efficacy is still limited by toxicity and inevitable selection of drug-resistant viral mutants (Nicholson et al., 2003 ). Vaccination against influenza virus still has limited efficacy, and complete prevention of the disease is not yet possible (Ge et al., 2004 ).

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a water-soluble, yellow gas with a characteristic chlorine-like odour and strong oxidizing activity (Moran et al., 1953 ; Fukayama et al., 1986 ; Ogata, 2007 ). It is commonly generated by adding acid to sodium chlorite (NaClO2) solution. ClO2 is a free radical, owing to one unpaired electron in its molecular orbital ( ) (Lynch et al., 1997 ). Possibly due to its strong oxidizing activity (Moran et al., 1953 ; Fukayama et al., 1986 ), when dissolved in water, ClO2 has potent antimicrobial activity against bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses (Taylor & Butler, 1982 ; Harakeh et al., 1988 ; Chen & Vaughn, 1990 ; Foschino et al., 1998 ; Eleraky et al., 2002 ; Schwartz et al., 2003 ; Sivaganesan et al., 2003 ; Li et al., 2004 ; Loret et al., 2005 ; Sy et al., 2005 ; Wilson et al., 2005 ; Okull et al., 2006 ; Simonet & Gantzer, 2006 ). However, the antimicrobial activities of gas-phase ClO2 have not been well studied. This is especially true of ClO2 gas at very low concentrations (subtoxic levels) that are sufficiently safe to use in places of human activity without evacuation. According to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the long-term (8 h) permissible exposure level of ClO2 in environmental air in a human workplace is 0.1 p.p.m. (v/v) (US Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 2006 ).
If gas-phase ClO2 is shown to have potent antimicrobial activity at a subtoxic level, it would be useful to employ it at such levels to prevent transmission of respiratory infections in public places such as offices, schools, theatres, hospitals and airport buildings without evacuating occupants. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether ClO2 gas at a subtoxic level can protect against influenza A virus infection by using a mouse–influenza model. The mechanism of the effect of ClO2 against this virus was further substantiated by in vitro biochemical experiments.


We have demonstrated that ClO2 gas at an extremely low concentration can prevent influenza A virus infection of mice caused by aerosols. According to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the 8 h permissible exposure level of ClO2 in human workplaces is 0.1 p.p.m. The level of ClO2 gas (0.03 p.p.m.) used in this study is well below this level, and our results indicate that ClO2 at this level could be used in the presence of humans to prevent their infection by influenza A virus and possibly other related virus infections of the respiratory tract. Specifically, ClO2 gas could be used in places such as offices, theatres, hotels, schools and airport buildings without evacuating people, thus not interrupting their normal activities.

Current growing concerns about the threat posed by highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza virus have prompted interest in evaluating measures against this virus. ClO2 and chlorine have long been used as disinfectants of public water supplies. Thus far, chlorine treatment (chlorination) represents the most common form of disinfection used in water treatment. Rice et al. (2007) reported recently that the H5N1 strain of influenza A virus was inactivated by chlorine in an in vitro experiment. In their experiment, the free chlorine concentration typically used in drinking-water treatment was sufficient to inactive the virus by more than three orders of magnitude. Although the strain of influenza virus used in our present experiment (H1N1) differs from that of Rice et al. (2007) , it is suggested that our present method, namely treatment of influenza virus by ClO2, provides another effective manoeuvre for the treatment of public water supplies contaminated by the virus, and it paves a new way for prevention of pandemic influenza.

Clinical and microbiological efficacy of chlorine dioxide in the management of chronic atrophic candidiasis: an open study

Objective: To assess the clinical and microbiological efficacy of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) as a topical antiseptic for the treatment of chronic atrophic candidiasis in geriatric patients. Participants: Thirty patients with chronic atrophic candidiasis. Methods: Patients were instructed to rinse the mouth with 0.8% ClO2 mouth rinse (DioxiDent) twice daily for one minute and to soak their dentures overnight in the ClO2 for 10 days. Patients were evaluated both clinically and microbiologically at baseline and after 10 days, and any significant side effects were recorded. The clinical appearance of the oral soft tissues was scored on a scale of 0–3 (0 indicating no clinical signs, 1 indicating involvement of < 25% of the palatal mucosa, 2 indicating involvement of 25–50% of the palatal mucosa, and 3 indicating marked erythema involving > 50% of the palatal mucosa). Microbiological testing was undertaken to determine the number of colony forming units (CFUs) of Candida albicans. Results: ClO2 significantly improved the clinical appearance and microbial count (p < 0.001) after treatment, without significant side effects. Results showed marked improvement in the clinical appearance of the tissues after 10 days, with total resolution in the majority of cases. The total CFU/ml ranged from 15,000–53,000 at baseline and was reduced to ≤ 500 after 10 days of treatment (p < 0.001). The mean clinical score was 2.50 at baseline, and was reduced to 0.17 after 10 days of treatment (p < 0.001). Conclusions: Within the limitations of this pilot study, the effectiveness of topical chlorine dioxide (0.8%) in the management of chronic atrophic candidiasis was demonstrated. ClO2 provided a safe and clinically effective option in the management of chronic atrophic candidiasis.

Aim: To investigate the plasma membrane damage of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to Candida albicans ATCC10231 at or below the minimal fungicidal concentration (MFC).
Methods and Results: ClO2 at MFC or below was adopted to treat the cell suspensions of C. albicans ATCC10231. Using transmission electron microscopy, no visible physiological alteration of cell shape and plasma membrane occurred. Potassium (K+) leakages were significant; likewise, it showed time- and dose-dependent increases. However, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) leakages were very slight. Research shows that when 99% of the cells were inactivated, the leakage was measured at 0•04% of total ATP. Compared with the mortality-specific fluorescent dye of DiBAC4(3), majority of the inactivated cells were poorly stained by propidium iodide, another mortality-specific fluorescent dye which can be traced by flow cytometry.

Conclusion: At or below MFC, ClO2 damages the plasma membranes of C. albicans mainly by permeabilization, rather than by the disruption of their integrity. K+ leakage and the concomitant depolarization of the cell membrane are some of the critical events.
Significance and Impact of the Study: These insights into membrane damages are helpful in understanding the action mode of ClO2.


1482 The Effect of Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) on Different Cariogenic Microorganisms

P. LINGSTRÖM, J. ONO, and D. BIRKHED, Göteborg University, Sweden
Various antimicrobial agents are used in order to reduce high levels of cariogenic microorganisms.

The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the effect of a new stabilized form of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) on different oral bacteria both in vitro and in vivo.

The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) was studied for 16 different oral laboratory strains. In an in vivo study, 12 subjects participated in a 14-day randomized trial. The subjects rinsed 4 times daily for 2x1 min with 10 ml of 40 ppm ClO2 (XINIX®, XINIX AB, Stockholm, Sweden). 1% chlorhexidine (CHX) and distilled water were used as controls. Salivary samples were collected day 0, 3, 7 and 14 and plaque samples day 0 and 14 for determination of total number of CFU, oral streptococci, mutans streptococci, lactobacilli, Actinomyces and Candida.

Low MIC-values were found for S. sobrinus and S. mitis, while strains of S. mutans, S. sanguis, S. salivarius, lactobacilli, Actinomyces and Candida were less susceptible. Most of the studied microorganisms in saliva were numerically reduced from day 0 to 14 during frequent rinses with both ClO2 and CHX. However, only CHX showed statistically significant reduction for total number of CFU (p<0.01), oral streptococci (p<0.01) and mutans streptococci (p<0.001), while no such effect was found for lactobacilli, Actinomyces and Candida. For plaque, both ClO2 and CHX reduced the total number of CFU, oral streptococci and % mutans streptococci (p<0.001 or p<0.05).
Conclusions: The main conclusion from this study is that the new stabilized form of chlorine dioxide can reduce several of the oral microorganisms associated with dental caries in vitro and in vivo. However, the reduction was not of the same magnitude as what was found for chlorhexidine. This study was supported by Patentmedelsfonden för Odontologisk Profylaxforskning and XINIX AB, Sweden.

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide


MMS De-Mystified - Adam Abraham - 09/09/2007

It’s now been over a year since I learned about, and started experiencing something wonderful; that has implications for every one of us. It’s known as “MMS” or the “miracle mineral supplement.” But it’s no miracle, it’s just wonderful chemistry. Due to the continued growth of this phenomenon, I produced a feature length documentary on the topic. But this article has now been read over 50,000 times, and is a great place to start your education on what MMS is, and what it can mean to you.

MMS is a protocol or procedure that involves precipitating a chemical solvent, chlorine dioxide, in quantities small enough to be safely ingested, and large enough to kill pathogens that are presently living in our body, robbing it of energy, and poisoning it with waste material, and making it more vulnerable to disease. If this is not your situation, it is certainly the situation of someone you know and love.

Caution flags rise immediately when the term “miracle” is used to describe anything that amazes us, or when we don’t understand how it does what it does. They certainly did for me. In this case, it is indeed amazing. However, an explanation of why MMS is so effective as a pathogen destroyer is possible. It’s not the MMS that destroys pathogens; the chlorine dioxide that is generated when using MMS does that. When you understand the chemistry, you’ll see why it’s not a miracle… it just seems like one.

Humble Origins“MMS” Bottle

The MMS protocol was developed by Jim Humble, a gold miner and metallurgist, on an expedition into the jungles of Central America, looking for gold. It was a response to a need to help a member of his expedition who came down with malaria, more than two days away, through heavy jungle, from the next mine. After many years of experience, Humble always carried stabilized oxygen, which is really sodium chlorite (NaClO3), with him on such expeditions, to make local water potable. Facing the possibility of a quick loss of life, he gave it to the stricken man. To everyone’s amazement, he was well within a few hours. That sure seemed like a miracle, but Humble wanted to better understand what had just happened.

Over the course of several years, Jim Humble figured out that what made stabilized oxygen so effective in some malaria cases, was not the oxygen at all, but the trace amounts of chlorine dioxide. Further research led him to come up with a way to produce hundreds, if not thousands more units of chlorine dioxide than what is found in stabilized oxygen. This is through using a higher concentrate of sodium chlorite (28% — 22.4% effective sodium chlorite vs. 3% for stabilized oxygen), in conjunction with the activator. The proof of the efficacy of this simple protocol was in successfully helping over 75,000 people in several African nations – including Uganda and Malawi – rid themselves, primarily of malaria, but also hepatitis, cancer, and AIDS. I recently met a man in Sedona who contracted malaria on a recent trip to Africa. And what do you think helped him get over it quickly? You guessed it; MMS.

Jim Humble chronicled his experiences in two downloadable ebooks that are available at his web site: www.miraclemineral.org. The book is titled, The Miracle Mineral Supplement of the 21st Century. Part one, which is a free download, tells how it began. Part two, which costs $9.95, continues the story, discusses the chemistry involved, and gives clear instructions on how to prepare MMS yourself. (A hard copy edition is also available.) This is important, because once you understand the chemistry, and the absolute absence of downside effects, outside of feeling nauseous and “expelling” when toxins and pathogens are dislodged, it becomes an option that anyone who may be on toxin overload must try out for one’s self.

Anyone can be on toxin overload. Some are but won’t admit it. Others would prefer to think they’re not. If your health is not perfect… you’re habitually low on energy, have trouble keeping your weight down, or blood pressure in the normal range, or constantly dealing with inflammation or pain, then there’s likely a toxin, heavy metal, virus, bacteria, or parasite issue in play. Traditional medicine will typically respond by loading you up with additional pollutants, many of which indiscriminately kill healthy tissue while going after “the bad guys.” Not so with chlorine dioxide. It only acts on harmful presences. Miracle or not, the effects are wonderful. I’d vote for Wonderful Mineral Supplement in a heartbeat!

Over the next few pages, I’m going to describe the MMS protocol. When followed, it will produce and distribute chlorine dioxide to your red blood cells, which is the most effective and intelligent pathogen killer known to Nature.

But first, a little background on the chemistry.

Chlorine dioxide and chlorine are not the same. Chlorine is a chemical element. In ion form, chlorine is part of common salt and other compounds, and necessary to most forms of life, including human. A powerful oxidizing agent, it is the most abundant dissolved ion in ocean water, and readily combines with nearly every other element, including sodium to form salt crystals, and magnesium, as magnesium chloride.

Chlorine dioxide is a chemical compound that consists of one chlorine ion bound to two ions of oxygen.

Oxidizing agents are chemical compounds that readily accept electrons from “electron donors.” They gain electrons via chemical reaction. This is important because relative to chlorine dioxide, all pathogens are electron donors.

Chlorine dioxide is extremely volatile. You might call it “hot tempered,” but in a very beneficial way. This volatility is a key factor in chlorine dioxide’s effectiveness as a pathogen destroyer.

The compound is literally explosive; so explosive, it’s not safe to transport in any quantity. Therefore, it is common practice to generate chlorine dioxide “on site” at the point of use. Most chlorine dioxide production is done on a scale that would prove deadly for individuals, for example, in municipal water treatment systems, where it is beginning to replace chlorine because it produces no carcinogenic byproducts. Chlorine dioxide is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency in safely removing pathogens and contaminates like anthrax. So you know it must be effective. However, the concentrations used in such applications can vary from 500 to over 6,000 parts per million (ppm), which would clearly be deadly to an individual. Using the MMS protocol you will produce chlorine dioxide in the range of 1 ppm.

You will use the MMS solution, which is safe to transport, to make nature’s harmless pathogen remover.

The MMS solution is 28% (22.4% effective) sodium chlorite in distilled water. You can produce chlorine dioxide with a single drop, when an “activator” of vinegar, lemon juice, or a 10% solution of citric acid is added. The latter two activators are recommended for people with Lyme disease.

“Applications” of chlorine dioxide range from 1 drop to a maximum of 15, except in life critical situations, where the maximum may be doubled. A “maintenance application” is six drops, with ¼ teaspoon of activator added. After adding the activator, the chemical reaction that turns sodium chlorite into chlorine dioxide takes only about three minutes.

The activating ingredient in vinegar that makes the change possible is acetic acid. It also sets the stage for what happens when the chlorine dioxide ions enter the bloodstream. This weak acid acts like a blasting cap by lowering the pH of the chlorine dioxide, without setting it off.

The natural pH of sodium chlorite is 13. Adding vinegar, lemon juice, or citric acid) creates about 3 mg of unstable but still harmless chlorine dioxide.

The Process

Let’s talk a bit more about how and why chlorine dioxide works for giving the immune system a new lease on life.

Volatility is what makes chlorine dioxide so effective when it contacts pathogens. As we’ve mentioned, chlorine dioxide is a safe and effective disinfectant in many municipal water delivery systems, hospitals, and even in bioterrorism response. It stands to reason that chlorine dioxide would be just as effective working in the waters of the human body.

Chlorine dioxide’s extreme volatility prevents pathogens from developing a resistance. Mainly because when they “clash,” the pathogens no longer exist. Yet, healthy cells and beneficial bacteria are unaffected.

While normal levels of oxygen in the blood cannot destroy all of the pathogens present under disease conditions, delivery of chlorine dioxide changes everything.

“Halt! Surrender Your Electrons, Now!”

When a chlorine dioxide ion contacts a harmful pathogen, it instantly rips up to five electrons from the pathogen, in what can be likened to a microscopic explosion… harmless to us, but terminal for pathogens.

The pathogen – an electron donor – is rendered harmless due to the involuntary surrendering of its electrons to the chlorine dioxide – an electron acceptor – and the resulting release of energy. Oxidized by the chlorine ion, the former pathogen becomes a harmless salt.

This process benefits a body that has become toxic.

Throughout the body, anywhere chlorine dioxide ions – transported via red blood cells – come in contact with pathogens, the pathogens give up their electrons and cease to exist. The chlorine dioxide armed cells only “detonate” on contact with pathogens, which include harmful bacteria, viruses, toxins, heavy metals, and parasites. All of these will have pH values that are out of the body’s range of good health. They will also have a positive ionic charge. The chlorine dioxide equipped cells do not oxidize beneficial bacteria, or healthy cells, as their pH levels are 7 or above, and hold a negative ion charge.

Chlorine dioxide ions will oxidize – meaning vaporize – diseased cells… anything that is acidic, with a positive ion charge.

If the chlorine dioxide ions encounter no pathogens or other poisons, it deteriorates into table salt and in some instances, hypochlorous acid, which the body can also use.

A Pathogen Terminator

Research has proven chlorine dioxide to be much safer than chlorine, as it is selective for pathogens when used in water. Furthermore, it does not create harmful compounds from other constituents in the water as chlorine does.

Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that chlorine – part of the halogen family of elements – creates as least three carcinogenic compounds when it enters the body, principally trihalomethanes (THMs). There has been no such evidence of harmful compounds being produced from chlorine dioxide.

This is why, in 1999, the American Society of Analytical Chemists proclaimed chlorine dioxide to be the most powerful pathogen killer known to man. It has even been used to clean up after anthrax attacks.

A Journey into Chemical Alchemy

Once it is introduced into the bloodstream, chlorine dioxide performs a highly energetic acceptance of four electrons when it comes across any cell that is below a pH value of 7. This means that diseased cells are essentially vaporized (i.e., “oxidized”) while healthy cells are unaffected.

Here is how it happens.

Red blood cells that are normal carriers of oxygen throughout the body do not differentiate between chlorine dioxide and oxygen. Therefore, after ingesting the MMS/chlorine dioxide-rich solution, red blood cells pick up chlorine dioxide ions that are deposited on the stomach wall where it normally gathers nutrients of various kinds before journeying through the body.

Then, when the red blood cells armed with chlorine dioxide encounter parasites, fungi, or diseased cells that all have low pH and a positive ionic charge, the “aliens” are destroyed along with the chlorine dioxide ion. If no such encounters occur, the chlorine dioxide will be carried to a point in the body where oxygen normally oxidizes poisons and other harmful agents.

If the chlorine dioxide doesn’t hit anything that can set it off, it will deteriorate, and thus lose an electron or two. This may allow it to combine with a very important substance that the immune system uses to make hypochlorous acid. This compound kills pathogens, killer cells, and even cancerous cells. Hypochlorous acid is so important, its diminished presence in the body is described medically by the term myeloperoxidase deficiency.

Many people are afflicted by this condition. The immune system needs a great deal more hypochlorous acid when disease is present. Facilitated by the MMS solution, chlorine dioxide delivers it in spades, as does magnesium chloride, but that’s another part of the health discussion.

The most salient point to know, is that chlorine dioxide has 100 times more energy to do what oxygen normally does, and yet, will not harm healthy cells.

By the way, if you are totally healthy, and have nothing in your body that is at an acidic level below 7, there are no ill-effects from taking chlorine dioxide. However, your stores of hypochlorous acid will be increased.

MMS works best to destroy pathogens that may be present in the body, when 2 or 3 mg of free chlorine dioxide are in the solution at the time it is swallowed. However, the body is supplied with chlorine dioxide in a “timed release” manner lasting about 12 hours. Be aware, that before you feel better, it is likely you will feel ill.

“Why Must I Feel Sick?”

The nauseating feeling that you may experience would be the result of chlorine dioxide encountering, dislodging – hence the “sick” feeling – and then destroying pathogens encountered.

We are generally oblivious of the pathogens that are introduced to our body, especially after they have been stored in the tissue of various organs. Since they build up over time, they generally affect our health slowly, and cumulatively.

However, chlorine dioxide takes them out suddenly, which may result in a dramatic reaction. However, it passes in much less time than it took for the toxins and pathogens to accumulate.

When the chlorine dioxide “goes off,” the electron stripped pathogens cease to exist.

As an example, one will almost always feel ill in hepatitis cases because the liver is induced to expel stored poisons, which are then destroyed by an army of red blood cells containing chlorine dioxide. It’s really no contest. But it doesn’t have to be something as acute as hepatitis.

Years of “leeching” of from dental amalgams can “innocently” deposit enough mercury to one’s system to steal innocence, rob vitality, and erase precious memories. Dislodging and vaporizing it will feel uncomfortable for a very short time compared to the time it took to accumulate.

If you feel sick when you take this protocol, know that your health and vitality awaits to rejoin you on “the other side” of the ill feeling.

If it has no “close encounters” with pathogens, chlorine dioxide deteriorates into constituents that are totally non-toxic. Nothing poisonous is left behind to build up, as is the case with many medical protocols. Medical treatments currently provide you NO way of removing the poisons when said poisons don’t work. You are left on your own in a strange land and diseased state, without a roadmap back to health.

Nature’s chlorine dioxide, on the other hand, lasts long enough to do its job, then that which does not furnish the immune system with needed ions becomes nothing more than micro amounts of salt and water.

The chlorine dioxide has just a few minutes to do its thing, and then it no longer exists, leaving nothing behind that can build up, or do additional harm.

The Procedure

So the procedure is simple. All you need is your bottle of MMS, a clean, empty, dry glass, an eyedropper, and the activator (vinegar, lemon juice, or citric acid). The following procedure is taken directly from Jim Humble’s site (www.miraclemineral.org).

What is the Normal MMS Protocol?

Note: When following the instructions below, keep this paragraph in mind. Always activate the MMS drops with one of the food acids, either lemon juice drops, or lime juice drops, or citric acid solution drops (to make citric acid solution add 1 level tablespoon of citric acid and 9 tablespoons of water. Store it in a bottle with a lid.) Always use 5 drops of one of these food acids to each one drop of MMS, mix in a empty dry glass and wait at least 3 minutes, then add 1/3 to 2/3 glass of water or juice and drink. (You can expand the 3 minutes out to 10 minutes, and after adding the juice or water you can wait up to an hour before drinking.)

1. All protocol for taking MMS in the Americas starts with one or two drops. Never start with more than one or two drops. People who are very sick and/or sensitive should start with ½ drop. Activate the drops as given above.

2. If you do OK and do not notice nausea on the first dose, increase by one drop for the second dose. If you notice nausea reduce the amount of MMS for the next dose. Do two doses a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. Continue to increase by one drop each time you take a new dose. When you notice nausea, reduce the dose by one drop, or bad diarrhea reduce by 2 or 3 drops. Usually reduce for one or two times before going back the amount that it took to make you nauseous.Note: If you notice diarrhea, or even vomiting that is not a bad sign. The body is simply throwing off poisons and cleaning itself out. Everyone says that they feel much better after the diarrhea. You do not have to take any medicine for the diarrhea. It will go away as fast as it came. It will not last. It is not real diarrhea as the body is just cleaning out, and it is not caused by bacteria or virus. When the poison is gone, the diarrhea is gone.

3. Continue to follow the procedure given in 2 above. Until you reach 15 drops twice a day without nausea. At that point increase to 3 times a day. Stay at 3 times a day for at least one week and then reduce the drops to 4 to 6 drops a day for older people and 4 to 6 drops twice a week for younger people.

Note: Once you have completed step 3 above most of the viral, bacteria, mold, and yeast load will be gone from your body. Your body will be clean. You no longer have to worry about feeding the microorganism load. You can base you diet on nutrition, rather than not feeding the load. The diabetes will be gone, thus you no longer need to worry about sugar. You won’t have to worry about the pancreas over reacting thus giving you a shock of insulin. Instead it will give you just enough insulin to knock the blood sugar lever to the right level (You won’t feel sleepy after eating a candy bar). Your body will then be able to easily adsorb vitamins and minerals and many other nutrients it might have been missing up to this time. You should feel better as time goes by. Do not quit taking the MMS.

The ‘Healtholution’ Will Not Be Televised!

Start modestly with as little as 1 drop of MMS on your first day, and then increase the number on each following day, up to the maximum of 15. ONLY THE MOST ACUTE TOXIC OVERLOAD SITUATIONS WILL WARRANT THIS AMOUNT OF APPLICATION. Your body WILL tell you when you’ve reached the optimum dosage for you.

Clearing will not be comfortable, but it need not be intolerable. You may feel like you’ve been through a battle, and in a sense, you have. It’s a battle for domain over your health, and hence, your life. Before you can be healthy again, you need to destroy toxins, pathogens, and parasites. In order to do so, they have to be uprooted and released from their “strongholds” in your body tissue. You will feel the effects, but is a good thing. You will also feel health, again.

The sick feeling will be TEMPORARY, a small price to pay for the longer term possibility of lasting restored health, no matter what stage of life you happen to be currently experiencing.

When the clearing is done, you won’t need to take the maximum dosages. You can go on a maintenance application (six (6) drops of MMS) to keep your insides pathogen free and immune system strong.

A few more words about fruit juices. They can be substituted for water as long as they are freshly made. Do not buy them off the shelf and use them, and DO NOT use orange juice. Orange juice prevents the production of chlorine dioxide, as well as anything that has vitamin C added as a preservative.

I hope you have found this information helpful. The product known as MMS is not really chlorine dioxide, it’s not even a miracle. However, it is a safe and effective way to create one, by introducing a sure fire way to bolster the immune system and eliminate a full range of harmful pathogens, by delivering Nature’s pathogen destroyer, chlorine dioxide, into your body.

When combined with the rapid toxin removal power of chlorine dioxide, mineral replenishment with magnesium chloride and detoxified iodine for the thyroid, can point those with even the most acute conditions in the direction of some seriously wonderful well being.

Some debunking of MMS. Smells like snake oil :huh:

Opinion / Editorial: Quack medicine: 'stabilized oxygen' including chlorine dioxide

Opinion / Editorial
LymeBlog News
Lexington, KY USA
By LymeBlog News Staff

Dr. Stephen Lower, retired faculty professor of chemistry, continues to debunk the ongoing quack products used to prey on the desperate and promoted by medical 'professionals' who really ought to know better.

Under Oxygenated water nonsense , he discusses the big money maker of "stabilized oxygen" products.


A huge part of the alternative-health-quackery industry is devoted to supplying those free-radical fighters known as antioxidants (Whose benefits as dietary supplements are entirely unproven— but that's another subject.) But pseudoscience knows no bounds and can be twisted in any direction, so here's an Idaho company (where else?) that flogs a nostrum they call stabilized oxygen. A thankfully-now-disappeared Web site goes on at great length about the importance of protecting our cells from oxygen deprivation:

Oxygen plays another important role in the body acting as a guardian and protector against unfriendly bacteria and disease organisms. One of oxygen's major functions is disintegration. Rubble, garbage, toxins, refuse, debris, and anything useless are destroyed by oxygen and carried out of the system. Just as a clean house holds little interest to passing flies, likewise, an oxygen rich body is a difficult fortress to assail.

... all errant nonsense, of course! Anyway, they go on about how their product helps you to enjoy

the tremendous benefits of oxygen to the body other than through the breathing process. Oxygen is very difficult to stabilize and until a recent scientific breakthrough, oxygen has not been stabilized in a beneficial non-toxic form.

This flapdoodle overlooks the fact that oxygen is not present in the blood as O2, but is complexed to hemoglobin which controls the amount of oxygen delivered to cells through an exquisitely-evolved feedback mechanism. What these hucksters mean by "stabilizing" the oxygen is not entirely clear. We are told that

Stabilized oxygen is an oxide of chlorides compound stabilized with the richest known source of nascent oxygen with several atoms per molecule.

Whatever they mean by "oxide of chlorides compound" could be any number of substances from chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to perchloric acid (HClO4). The first is a poison and the second is explosive, so I presume they have come up with something in between. The term "nascent oxgyen" (see below) usually means free oxygen atoms as opposed to the stable molecule O2 which make up 20% of the air we breathe. But it gets more complicated:

[This product] is a safe, non toxic, stabilized liquid concentrate of electrolytes of oxygen, which are made available to your body, in molecular form, when ingested. ... The genius of it is the formulating of the two most abundant and important electrolytes of body fluid, sodium and chlorine, to act as the oxygen carriers. The molecular oxygen is released through the digestive process, and is absorbed into the bloodstream. ... In an ordinary glass of tap water there is on the average, 7-12 ppm of oxygen molecules. In Stabilized Oxygen the amount of available oxygen increased to about 12,000 ppm or 1,000 times.

Wow! This appears to be a good description of sodium hypochlorite NaOCl, otherwise known as laundry bleach. Thanks, but I think I'll pass on this one!

The following statements are just a few that are found on the MMS site and/or purported by others to "explain" how and why MMS works yet it is plain "bad science" --my degrees in developmental bio and the decades spent teaching pre-med and nursing students as well as even more years as a Science ed consultant compels me to refute the following:

1.- false statement: only "bad" microbes are 'negatively' charged and/or pathogens cant survive alkaline environments..
we must not be content to repeat what we have heard or seen written by those selling anything. ANY intro level microbio text will tell you that the following DEADLY pathogens exist and thrive in alkaline environments: enterococcus, erysipelous bacteria, listeria and yes even fungus like aspergillus which has become deadly to many. therefore stating only 'good' bacteria are alkaline is FALSE- also, ingesting an alkaline will make these pathogens more likely to cause harm, NOT "kill" them.

-According to experiments by Weichselbaum et al " when gastric fluids become alkaline microbes do NOT lose their pathogenic properties"...

-2. False statement:Good bacteria cant be harmed-- what about GOOD bacteria that thrive in ACID environments ( almost all of the probiotics like lactobacillus). What is ingesting an alkaline doing to THEM??? while many cant make it past stomach acids, some DO and others do well in the slightly less acid but NOT alkaline GI tract, beyond the stomach, as well. if ANY bacteria or viruses are harmed, so too will the "good" bacteria.

3. False statement- harmless salts form- the common salt thats forming?? mostly right in the gut .hence the nausea- any scientific evidence that ANY of the active CLO2 stuff thats making you so nauseated getting anywhere into the blood??? I have seen NONE. The mammal body is pretty good at keeping things where they belong, why would such a toxic substance as ClO2 be allowed to get into the blood at high enough quantity? Id love to SEE blood and intracellular levels of ClO2 after ingesting this stuff

so too Id like to see the proof of its ability to get into the RBC--the membrane system makes it difficult at best for larger and unfamiliar molecules to simply cross the barrier membranes.

4. False statement- the CLO2 deposits onto stomach walls where it enters the body like other nutrients--well first off nutrients leave the gut via small intestines NOT the stomach, secondly the acids in the stomach would react with the CLO2 anyway.

5. False statement--if you have nothing in the body below acid level/Ph7 there are no ill effects--ummm what about the acids in the stomach?? and what about those good bacteria- ACIDophilus etc??

FYI HEALTHY microbes like lactobacillus require Ph range of 5.8-6.6 ACIDIC and
some pathogens like clostridium do well at 6.0-7.6--that is, they thrive even with alkaline environs!!

when in a state of health human body is slightly ACIDIC
while blood is usally slightly alkaline at 7.4 ( arteries) and 7.3 (veins)
Urine Ph norms = 6.0
saliva Ph norma 6.0-7.4 and vary so widely it cannot be used to measure the entire body's Ph levels
there are individual variations so that within a small range we each have optimum levels depending upon diet and genetics and other factors.

6. False statement--no chlorine is involved--that chlorine like odor when you mix it??? chlorine!! matter of fact if you inhale the fumes you will be inhaling chlorine gas and may well end up needing medical attention!

7. false statement- ingesting MMS causes Ph changes of the entire body/blood to occur--no one has shown this to happen.
- in any case, any PH changes that may occur, are very quickly rebalanced in the body,and kept within very strict levels ( different for various tissues etc) UNLESS one is so ill as to be unable and then they face a probable DEADLY outcome. Theres a reason why saliva and blood are slightly alkaline and urine acid...why would anyone think playing around with this balance is GOOD???

- except in presence of some very specific illnesses, you cannot change one's cellular Ph safely. Have you seen people in acidosis or alkalosis?? I have...not pretty. tiny changes that dont upset the natural balance also dont do much of anything for invaders...they too "like" the same margins of Ph our cells do.

8. false statement--the nasuea/vomting, diarrhea means a good thing--pathogens and toxins are leaving the body-maybe even a "herx"
if you ingest enough 'common salt' or salt water you will also vomit etc...like I advised to those doing the Salt/Vit c cure this too has very big risks. BUT this is NOT proof of a Herx!! or of healing or even detoxing--its your body screaming " hey stop that"

Not all negative symptom results can be called "herxes" regardless of whats causing them. that term has become way to loosely used and why we often have trouble getting other trained professionals to listen to us when a real Herx ( or other event poorly adopted) happens

FYI as for pathogens and changing Ph-as far back as the "Principles of Surgery" by Nicholas Seim it was well known that altering the stomach's acidity by making it alkaline will actually PRESERVE the virulence of pathogens and make the patient MORE likely to get deadly SEPSIS!! ingesting a strong alkaline is NOT therefore a 'good' thing. it will allow pathogens in the GI tract to become stronger and even to be passed further into one's body.

- saying chlorine dioxide is safe because we produce tiny amounts of it is patently silly. even WATER becomes toxic at high amounts. and anyone can look up 'chlorine dioxide' to see that its quite a dangerous substance. Citing its uses is like my saying that at one time ARSENIC was used quite successfully against spirochetes specifically syphilis. well, who here would want to ingest arsenic??

9. False statement- Malaria has been cured in Malawi and Uganda--
-I have intimate knowledge of the malaria situation in Africa due to my daughter ( grad student of anthropology who unfortunately for my gray hair travels out of this country a LOT). and I can unequivocably say that NO cure for malaria has been done there on any large scale IF AT ALL. Hundreds are STILL dying in hospitals from resistant parasites. I have a BIG problem with advertising 'cures' when I know them to be less than truthful.if they 'fudge' or exaggerate in one area then how can I believe the rest of the claims. I personally emailed the Ministers of Health of Malawi and Uganda and to this date None have been willing to say that anyone there used/uses MMS and that ANYONE has been cured of Malaria with it. Youd think theyd be bragging over their superiority if this happened. Id like to see PROOF from anyone of this happening as per the MMS website

10 false statement-resistance to this ( if it works) cant happen-
RESISTANCE can and does build whenever ANY microbe killer is used. period. This ClO2 cannot and does not instantly kill every last "bad" microbe all at once...IF it did why then do you need it for so long????? the microbes that are NOT killed are very quickly reporducing and those survivors are passing along their genetic know-how to get STRONGER. For the same reasons antibiotics are a big cause of the resistant bacteria we now face, taking ANY killer will do the SAME.using anything that puts pressure on another living thing to adapt will cause genetic changes ( mutationally or simply gradually with reproduction). ALL living things have one prime directive : survive and reproduce--and they will find a way to do so.

Im guessing that with some more time I can even find for you microbes that lap up chlorine. many thought for so long nothing can grow with high methane- WRONG, high sulfur or temperatures-WRONG.nothing can grow in Ice- wrong- turns out that there is LIFE adapted to very last environment on Earth. And some are pathogenic in every area.

11. people are being cured--well maybe they ARE and maybe not--but not from this--from what? placebo effect perhaps ( at what cost or risk), perhaps by other stuff theyve done previously--after all many who try this have failed many times on previous treatments...maybe all they needed was healing time.

am I therefore saying no one should use this or any other supposed miracle cure??? NO -its not for ME to say that. BUT when we are exhorting others to take the same risks we must be VERY sure we have given them ALL of the correct information and not putting OTHERS in harms way!

what I AM saying is that we must be much more careful about our "facts" and only then can we EACH decide in a fully informed manner which risks we each are willing to take. Id be happy to admit any errors on my part if you provide the substantiation.

Im also pretty sure that if any of the so called miracle cures out there really are a global for-all cure, then we would all be "cured" . the fact that there are so many of us still ill proves to me that as yet it doesnt exists. Unfortunately for many illnesses, the individualness of the situation makes it that much LESS likely of a cure for all. so far all "universal" cure all havent stood the test of time.

IF any of you are truly feeling better after doing ANY cure, then may G-d Bless and may you continue to heal. BUT that doesnt mean that for others itd be a safe or healthy decision to do something so risky, especially blinded by the advice and what Ive read so far on this and other sites.

. we have to be willing to embrace facts even if theyre contrary to what you 'believe' or have 'heard' or seen as written by those wanting to sell their products.

continue to take, or do, what helps you but be open to the fact that you may be doing so at great risk and urging others to do the same while hiding ALL of the information ( including that which is opposite to your beliefs) is IMHO negligent.
and that would make us no better than Big Pharma who most of us can agree has a nasty habit of providing only the studies supporting their drugs while conveniently forgetting to print harmful outcomes!! Many of us would and DO take drugs with a long list of warnings...but at least we have been warned.

Denying the WHOLE truth about ANY new cure-all ( and ALL things have good and bad about them) does no one any good.the people losing kidneys after doing Salt/C and many others terribly ill on other regimens are now being blocked and booted off many sites for sharing their experiences--'too negative' , 'cant be true' are the reasons. Is this what we want??

before simply accepting anything
first understand the basic science behind unbelievable claims, then investigate motive and if the inventor understands the good and bad effects and finally balance the risks with benefits--and IF at the outset many lies/exaggerations are told and the science is all wrong ask youselves--HOW can anything thats said then be trusted??

and thats one of many reasons why the Drs without Borders and the WHO etc arent going anywhere near this!!! too much is so very wrong they cant possibly take anything else seriously.

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide

Here are some excerpts from part 1 of Humble's e-book, which you can download here. I have highlighted a few things that caught my attention. It's worth reading the whole thing if you are interested. The first three chapters deal mostly with the chemistry of MMS. Weaving through this is a rough chronology of developments as Humble tried to make his discovery known, including some of the difficulties he faced. I would expect something that actually cures diseases to come under the Control System's radar for elimination. If his story is credible, Humble has been derailed more than once. He was threatened with jail, scammed out of his money, fell and broke his neck, has his own personal handler who has threatened and humiliated him (but who nevertheless retains control of the MMS - it's not clear to me, from reading the first part of this book, how this odd contractual arrangement came about) and now resides in Mexico... to distance himself from US authorities? I don't know - just guessing.

Humble said:
Humble makes his discovery while prospecting for gold in the jungle of Guyana.


The phone was ringing at the other end of the house. It was a long narrow house and there was furniture get around and a hallway to get through, but in of the obstacle course I made it. Bill Denicolo, an old friend, in Chicago was calling. We talked and he asked, "Jim, are you any good at prospecting for gold?"

I was never too modest, so I told him the truth (my truth). "Yes," I said,
"I am amongst the best, if not the best." That was enough for him. He
was a friend, and being already familiar with my work in mining, he
believed me. He continued, "I'm working with a group that wants to do
gold mining in the jungle in South America. We need your help and we
are paying the going rate, plus you get a share of the profits."

That was it. I agreed to leave in approximately one month. They were
willing to use my gold recovery technology. This would require that I
ship equipment ahead. It took the entire month to get things ready and to
ready myself for the jungle. The most important thing that I took, that
relates to this story, was several bottles of Stabilized Oxygen (Please
don't get the idea that Stabilized Oxygen is the miracle solution that I am
writing about in this book). All water in the jungle is dangerous to drink.
In North America, water from fast-moving streams is usually quite safe
to drink, but in the jungle it doesn't matter how fast the stream is
moving, it is not safe to drink. In fact, one can almost always guarantee
that one or more dangerous diseases are present. Despite that
knowledge, I did end up drinking from a fast-moving stream while in the
jungle, and I did develop typhoid fever.

A number of people had mentioned to me that the oxygen in Stabilized
Oxygen would purify water by killing the pathogens present, especially
if the water was left setting overnight. I had once sent a single test off to
a laboratory after treating some sewerage water with Stabilized Oxygen
and the results had come back showing all pathogens dead. I was
relatively confident that I could purify my drinking water in the jungle.

I had actually worked with Stabilized Oxygen for some time. A friend of
mine that lived a little way outside of Las Vegas used it quite a bit with
his animals. He gave it to his chickens in their water to keep them
healthy and he used it with his dogs. He even injected it into his dog's
veins once when it was sick and his dog was cured in several hours. I
often dropped by his home to see how things were going.

Bill Denicolo sent a contract to my house in Las Vegas, Nevada, where I
had retired from gold mining. The contract was quite generous. I was to
be paid a reasonable salary, and I would have 20% ownership in the
operation, provided I located gold in the jungle. I signed a copy of the
contract and sent it off, and received an airplane ticket in return. I was
64 years old but in top condition and I would have no trouble navigating
in the jungle.

The country was Guyana. The name had been changed a few years
earlier from British Guyana to simply Guyana. Guyana is the country
just south of Venezuela on the east coast of South America. You
probably remember it from the story of Jim Jones and his cult. The
entire cult committed suicide at one point or actually a few committed
suicides after killing the children and many of the other adults with
cyanide. Only a few survived. [Kniall: strange he should bring that up. Or maybe not.]



Some of the men had to make several trips over the mountain in order to
get all of our supplies to the other side. It took almost two complete days
of travel to arrive at our campsite. This gives you an idea of how far out
in the jungle we were. Several days later when two of our men came
down with malaria, we were plenty worried. We had been assured that
there was no malaria in this area of the jungle and we had not thought to
bring malaria medicine along with us. I immediately sent two men
running to the closest mining camp hoping that they might have malaria
drugs. That would take at least two days, and if they had no malaria
medicine it would be at least six days before the men returned. We
simply had to accept those facts because it was the best we could do.
We might have tried calling a helicopter, but we didn't have a radio.
Radios don't work in the jungle anyway, except for very short distances.

Considering all of the data that I had learned about Stabilized Oxygen, it
seemed to me, knowing it killed pathogens in water, that it might cure
malaria. I sat down with the men who had malaria and asked them if
they would be interested in trying this 'health drink' from America.
They were very sick and suffering. They lay in their hammocks
shivering from the chills, and at the same time with high fever. Their
symptoms included headaches, aching muscles and joints, nausea,
diarrhea, and vomiting. They were willing to try anything and they did

I gave them both a healthy dose of the stabilized oxygen in some water
and they drank it straight down. I thought, that's all I can do for now;
we'll just have to wait for the runners to return. In one hour the shivering
had stopped. That didn't mean much as the shivering comes and goes,
but they looked a little better. Four hours later they were setting up
kidding about how bad they had been feeling. They got up out of their
bunks and sat down at the table to eat dinner that evening. The next
morning two more men had come down with malaria. They took the
same doses of Stabilized Oxygen and they were feeling okay by noon.
We all were amazed. (This is not the whole story, and Stabilized Oxygen
does not work all the time.)


I did quite a bit of traveling in
the jungle. Wherever I went, I treated people for malaria (and sometimes
typhoid fever). Although the Stabilized Oxygen worked only about 70%
of the time, it was enough to make me quite famous in the jungle.

On the way back to town during that first trip into the jungle, we reached
a mining operation that was shut down for vacation. There were a
number of men who were merely waiting for the mill to start up again.
One of the men was sitting at a table looking very sick. I asked him
what was wrong and he said that he was waiting for a boat to pick him
up. He said he had typhoid fever and malaria at the same time. I
mentioned my Stabilized Oxygen which I merely called a health drink
and he said he would try it. On my return from town he came running
out to meet me. He grabbed my hand and pumped it up and down. He
told me that he had gotten better within hours after I left and he didn't
have to go into town after all. I left him with a small bottle of drops, as I
had done in other places in the jungle.

There were a number of good stories like that one, but unfortunately at
that time there were a lot of people it did not help. Still, it was a
treatment that got much better results than the malaria medicines used
there. People in malaria areas cannot afford to take the malaria
preventive medicines as side effects always develop after a time.
Visitors can usually only afford to take malaria medicines for a short
period. Thus, the locals never take the malaria preventative medicines.
They have to depend upon being cured by the standard malaria
medicines after they contract malaria, and unfortunately malaria has
developed a resistance to those medicines. Visitors can only afford to
take malaria medicines for a short period. As it turned out, several of my
associates were hospitalized as a result of the malaria preventive

I visited a missionary clinic near one of the mining villages in the jungle.
They had, as I remember, four beds. I offered the 'health drink' to them,
but they said to me that malaria was a disease visited upon the people of
the jungle because of their sinful sex practices and that they did not
believe that God wanted them to have a cure for malaria. There was
nothing I could do to change their minds. I felt terrible to see those
people suffering, but I had to leave. I won't mention the religion
involved as I feel that they must have changed their mind about helping
malaria victims by this time.

Back in Georgetown I telephoned a friend, Bob Tate, about the
Stabilized Oxygen curing malaria. He immediately flew to Guyana. We
discussed it and decided to see if we could sell the Stabilized Oxygen in
Guyana. We put an ad in the local paper stating that our solution cured
malaria. That was a mistake. Immediately the local television station
sent reporters over to our place and we were on TV telling about our
solution. Then the radio and newspaper reporters arrived. We were
famous for about three days. Then the government dropped a bomb on
us. The minister of health called us in for an interview. She told us that
if we sold our solution to one more person, that we would be in their
and that we wouldn't like their prison. I had seen the prison and I
knew that she was right.

I talked to my friend, the First Minister, Moses Nagamotoo, one evening.
He explained to me that two drug companies had called the Minister of
Health and threatened to quit shipping drugs to the local hospital if she
didn't do something about the person claiming to be able to cure malaria.
He explained that there was nothing his government could do at this time
to help me, but he mentioned that he suggested to the Minister of Health
that she give me some latitude.

At that point I made an even bigger mistake. Although we removed our
ad from the newspaper, I continued to sell the solution to more people
who needed it. My partner, Bob Tate, had already gone home, but I was
still planning to do gold mining in the jungle. We were just about ready
with our mining supplies when I got word that they were going to charge
me with a crime and that it would be better if I were gone or were
somewhere else. I found that people in Georgetown are more afraid of
the jungle than are people from Las Vegas. They seldom chase people in
the jungle. I immediately made the trip up the river and the supplies
followed me a few days later.

Humble tries a dose of his own medicine:


I went back to Guyana a couple months later when another company
hired me to help them improve their recovery of gold. I was still
working with the Stabilized Oxygen. One night, I was careless and
allowed myself to be bitten hundreds of times by mosquitoes. It really
wasn't planned, but when the mosquitoes started biting, I just let them
bite. Several days later I began to develop malaria. The very first
symptom is just that you have light indigestion at a meal. It's not very
pronounced, only a slight feeling of nausea that passes in about 15
minutes. You don't feel the real nausea until the next day. Since I did
get sick, I decided that I might as well check out my own medicine. So I
decided to wait until I got a blood test at the hospital in Georgetown
before starting any treatment. That was almost a fatal mistake. The bus
that runs from that part of the jungle to Georgetown did not come and I
know that almost always people who wait too long for treatment end up
dead. I waited a couple of days for the bus, but it didn't arrive and I was
getting very sick. Still, I wanted to be absolutely certain, with a blood
test, that I had malaria. I was going home soon and I would not have any
chance to do further testing of this kind in the US.

I didn't tell anyone I was performing a test on myself. My employers,
seeing how sick I was, felt responsible for getting me back to town. So
when I agreed to pay for part of the cost for an airplane to pick me up,
they agreed instantly. In that part of the jungle they do have a radio and
a nearby landing strip. The plane finally came the next day (now my
fourth day of being sick). I rode a bicycle to the landing strip. By this
time I was very sick. When I arrived at Georgetown, they put me in a
taxi and took me straight to the hospital.

At the hospital I waited several hours for a blood test. I was definitely
showing the malaria symptoms. The doctor told me that my blood tested
positive for malaria. I was an outpatient, so he just gave me a small
bottle of malaria pills. Of course, I did not take the pills; instead I took a
large dose of my own medicine. Within hours I was feeling better. It
worked for me. To top it off, I went back to the hospital and had another
blood test taken that now showed negative for malaria. I was elated! I
was the first patient to have a blood test both before and after taking the
Stabilized Oxygen. I believed I had discovered a cure for malaria.


My plans at that time were to complete the research and then turn the
information over to the world. I was sure I could get it out to the world
one way or another.

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide

From Chapter 2 of Humble's e-book:

Humble said:
Further Development of the Miracle Mineral Solution


I arrived back in the USA in the last part of 1997 and moved to
Walker Lake, Nevada, where my partner, Bob Tate, had moved my portable
laboratories.The plan was to set up and manufacture my own special
mining equipment in order to make a living while also investigating the Stabilized
Oxygen that I had used in the jungle. Unfortunately, during my exchange of
Guyana money for American money before departing Guyana, a large
sum of money was stolen from me as I had no experience with the
money system there. Therefore, our funds for investing in the mining
equipment manufacturing business were very limited. I sold my 40 foot
ocean going houseboat for a small sum, which helped a lot.

We worked our mining equipment business for about a year but then Bob
began to develop the terrible illness known as Lou Gehrig's disease and
was unable to do much work. The sales of the equipment began to falter
for many reasons. The magazine in which we advertised made a big
mistake with our advertising and then refused to give us credit for the
mistake, which cost us thousands. Eventually I ended up living on my
Social Security income. However, at times I did get to do an assay or
two, which helped.

With my son's help furnishing me with a computer and using the
Internet, I began writing to various pen pals in Africa. Finally, I made
friends with a man in Tanzania who took people on safaris to Mount
Kilimanjaro. His name was Moses Augustino. I realized that he was
mainly interested in making friends with people in America because he
hoped to come upon some kind of an opportunity. Had I been in his
shoes I might have done the same thing. He soon asked me for $40. I
realized that to him $40 was a lot of money, and actually at that time,
$40 was quite a bit to me as well. But since I wanted him to try the
Stabilized Oxygen on some malaria cases in Tanzania, I sent him the

The $40 paid off! According to my instructions, he began giving my
solution to malaria victims that he knew in his area. Soon people were
getting well fast, but again not everyone. He had a doctor friend, whom
he told about the Stabilized Oxygen. At that time we called it the
'Humble Health Drink'. I sent his doctor friend two bottles and I
received an email back from the doctor saying that he couldn't see how
salty water would help a malaria case. I emailed him back and said,
"Just try it and you will see." Well, the fact is, he did try it and he was
amazed. He began to treat all of his malaria patients with the solution.

The problem was there wasn't much malaria in this particular area. If
there had been as much there as there was in the South of Tanzania, he
would have treated hundreds of people, and it might have been a
different story, but he only got a few cases of malaria each week. I
thought you might like to see the two letters that they sent to me at my
request. They are included on the next two pages.
There are many copies of letters from doctors working with governmental and non-governmental health agencies in Africa included in the e-book, all vouching for the success of the 'Humble Health Drink' in curing malaria.


Humble said:
Meanwhile, I was working to find out what chemical the Stabilized
Oxygen really was and how it was made. I needed to find out why it
wasn't 100% effective. I learned that Dr. William F. Koch first started
working with this solution in Germany back in 1926. He used it in
conjunction with mentally retarded children, because he believed that the
Stabilized Oxygen produced nontoxic oxygen identical to the oxygen
produced by breathing. Dr. Koch used his formula for the next 10 years
believing that this formula somehow increased oxygen to the brain of the
retarded children. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The problem
was that either the chemistry was not modern enough for Dr. Koch to
understand exactly what the formula was doing, or he just didn't
understand chemistry well enough.


Researchers concerning Stabilized Oxygen since that time have
continued to make the same mistake. The fact is that what is now called
and has been called Stabilized Oxygen for the past 80 years contains no
oxygen that the body can use. In order to be useful to the body, oxygen
must be oxygen in its elemental state. That means no charge. In other words,
oxygen cannot be an ion form of oxygen. The oxygen that is in
Stabilized Oxygen is oxygen in an ionic form with a minus two charge.
Saying that the body can use the oxygen in Stabilized Oxygen is like
saying that the body can use the oxygen in carbon dioxide. Do you see?
Carbon dioxide has two ions of oxygen with the same minus two charges.
If you breathe only carbon dioxide you will die. The oxygen in Stabilized
Oxygen merely becomes part of the water in the body. Water is made up
of oxygen and hydrogen. In that condition, oxygen and hydrogen do not
destroy any pathogens at all. I was later amazed to find that several
universities had also made this same mistake. Of course, at that point I
did not know any better either. I just knew the solution needed to be

When you take a breath of air you are taking millions of oxygen atoms
into your lungs. When you breathe out, guess what? You are breathing
oxygen out in the form of carbon dioxide. The amount of oxygen going
out is the same as the amount that came in. But going out it is carbon
dioxide. You see, the dioxide is oxygen, but it is spent oxygen (so to
speak). The thing that the oxygen does that keeps the body alive is it
oxidizes things in the body. Oxidation consists of the oxygen atom
accepting electrons which destroys poisons and neutralizes chemicals
and releases heat energy. In the process carbon dioxide or carbon
monoxide or some other combination is created. When the oxygen
accepts the electrons, it is no longer an oxygen atom but it becomes an
oxygen ion with a minus two charge. If it already has a minus two
charge, as it does in Stabilized Oxygen, it cannot oxidize anything and
thus it is of no value to the body as oxygen.

So if it isn't oxygen that comes from the so called Stabilized Oxygen,
that kills the malaria parasite, what is it? You know, finding the formula
for Stabilized Oxygen was a hard thing to do back in 1998 if you had a
limited knowledge of chemistry. Everyone who had the formula wasn't
telling and even when they sold it, they would not put the ingredients on
the label. I did find one company that gave instructions for using
Stabilized Oxygen. They said that after you put the drops into a glass of
water it became unstable and thus you should never wait more than one
hour before drinking the mixture. I thought that was interesting. So I
put 10 drops into a glass of water, waited for about eight hours and then
smelled it, like chemists often do. I thought I smelled chlorine. I
realized that if water did make the Stabilized Oxygen unstable, it was
because the water had made it less alkaline (more neutral). I had been
using 10 drops, but by that time I was getting the idea that I would have
to use more drops. After adding 20 drops of Stabilized Oxygen to a
glass of water, I decided to add a little vinegar because it is a food that
contains an acid called acetic acid which I knew would make it less
alkaline than even water would. I waited for more than 24 hours this
time and then I could detect a much stronger smell of chlorine.

By that time, my friends in Africa trusted me to some small extent, so
they were willing to give it a try. They started using the improved
formula of 20 drops of the Stabilized Oxygen in a full glass of water with
one teaspoon of vinegar. After waiting 24 hours they then gave it to
several of those who were not helped with the original first dose. It
worked in every case when they used the vinegar and waited 24 hours.

To test my mixture, I bought some chlorine measuring sticks used for
swimming pools, and guess what? After a few hours, the mixture began
to measure a slight amount of chlorine and after 24 hours it measured at
least 1 ppm (part per million) of chlorine. That really wasn't the total
answer, but I was getting closer. I didn't realize it at first, but the sticks
were measuring chlorine dioxide.

Next, I put a lid on the glass containing the mixture and found that it
developed the same strength of chlorine in two hours as it did in 24 hours
without the lid. That is, of course, so long as I also used the vinegar.
The reason was that the chlorine was not going off into the air nearly as
fast. I transmitted this data to Tanzania and they began to use this new
procedure. They added the teaspoon of vinegar, used a lid and waited
for two hours before giving it to the malaria victims. It worked every
time. They were not having any failures.

This all sounds easy now, but I did more than 1,000 different tests over a
period of one year to figure out all these 'simple' things.
My money
was very limited and swimming pool test strips were expensive, as well
as the various chemicals that I needed to do the testing. I must admit that
I didn't do anything really smart or brilliant, I just blundered along with
my slight knowledge of the chemistry of metallurgy. There was also the
fact that I was a research engineer in the Aerospace industry for almost
25 years. I set up tests for A-bombs and that sort of thing.
So I did have
some experience at doing tests. I tried a dozen or more acids and a
hundred combinations.


The two-hour wait was okay for the doctor, but for my friend Moses
Augustino it wasn't very practical. He was always on the move and
would run into cases of malaria on his travels. He needed a method of
giving people doses within five minutes or so, as he simply could not
wait two hours all the time. Stabilized Oxygen is stable because of its
very high alkalinity (i.e. the opposite of acidity.) When a few drops are
added to a glass of water, the alkalinity of the drops is neutralized by the
water and ions in the drops become unstable and begin to release
chlorine. At least that is what I thought at the time. So the question is,
how do we get this to happen faster?

The research waited for the purchase and testing of different acids, which
I finally accomplished. After trying all the mineral acids and various
organic acids, I found that vinegar, which is 5% acetic acid, which is an
organic acid, worked the best. Then I made a mini breakthrough which
was simple. Instead of using a glass of water, I used no water at all. I
just put 20 drops of stabilized oxygen and 1/4 teaspoons of vinegar in a
clean, dry, empty glass. I swirled it around to mix it. That worked, and
it worked in only three minutes! I checked the mixture with the chlorine
strips and it showed a reading of over 5 ppm (parts per million) in only
three minutes' time. When I added 1/2 glasses of water, it diluted the
mixture out to less than 1 ppm, but the taste was terrible. The Stabilized
Oxygen mixture with water doesn't taste too bad before the chlorine is
released, but afterwards it's pretty bad. Some people don't seem to mind
the taste. However, most people do, especially children, and they are the
main ones who need the solution.

I tried various juices to see which ones might work the best. There were
two problems. First I needed something that would taste okay, but I also
needed something that would not change the amount of chlorine. After
trying many juices and tasting a lot of drinks I settled on just plain old
apple juice, the kind with no vitamin C added. I transmitted this
information to my friends in Tanzania and they used it for a few months.
Then something happened and I never heard from them again. I worried
that my friend Moses may have been injured on one of his trips to
Kilimanjaro as he simply dropped out of contact. The doctor explained
to me that he had not heard from him either. The doctor also mentioned
that he was going to move. I never heard from either of them again,
although I sent numerous e-mails. They gave me a great deal of help and
I miss their e-mails.

You may be wondering at this time what the formula for Stabilized
Oxygen really is. I did finally dig out the formula for Stabilized Oxygen.
I am sure that a lot of researchers would have found it in 1/2 hour; but
living on a desert lake with a very limited income, it took me a while.
Anyone in the world can find the data now-a-days, but let me save you
some trouble. The formula is NaClO2. The name is sodium chloriTe.

That sounds like salt, but not quite. Table salt is NaCl, and the name is
sodium chloriDe. Notice the difference of the next to last letter. One is
chlorite, and the other is chloride. So let me tell you the real story that
all the other researchers seem to have missed.

Let me mention now that the chlorine I smelled was actually chlorine in
the air above the solution, but there was no chlorine in the solution. I
discovered that what is in the solution is Chlorine Dioxide which is much
different than chlorine. Sodium chlorite (Stabilized Oxygen) is highly
alkaline, that is the opposite of acid. When it is neutralized it becomes
unstable and begins to release, not oxygen, but chlorine dioxide. But
that is where the oxygen comes in. The formula for chlorine dioxide is
ClO2. That's one ion of chlorine and two ions of oxygen, but the body
cannot use that oxygen. It has already lost its ability to oxidize. The
chlorine ion however, in this case, has a powerful ability to oxidize.
Chlorine dioxide is a powerful explosive. It cannot be contained as it
will explode and destroy the container. It is always generated where it is
used because it cannot be moved. Even a particle as small as one ion of
chlorine dioxide will explode when it hits the right thing, namely a
pathogen in the body or some other item more acidic than the body.

An explosion is merely a fast chemical reaction, releasing energy, which
is usually some kind of oxidization. When a chlorine dioxide ion meets
a pathogen it accepts five electrons of charge and instantaneously results
in an instant oxidization, which is the explosion. The result of this
explosion (the result of this chemical reaction) is that the chlorine ion is
completely neutralized. The two oxygen ions that were a part of the
chlorine dioxide ion are already neutral which for oxygen is a minus 2
state. That means that the oxygen ion cannot oxidize anything; it can
only become a part of the water in the body. The body cannot utilize it
for any kind of oxidation. The chlorine ion becomes a chloride which
basically is just table salt which has no particular power either. Both the
oxygen and the chlorine now do not have any charge that will create any
kind of oxidation. So you see it's the chlorine dioxide ion (the
combination of chlorine and oxygen) that does the work and it has a
great deal more ability to oxidize pathogens than oxygen.

Another fact is that several deep breaths of air will supply more oxygen
to the human body than the stabilized oxygen is expected to supply.
Since the formula was supposed to produce oxygen identical to the
oxygen in the respiration process, what would be the point of taking the
Stabilized Oxygen when you could just take a couple of extra breaths?
Anyway, it's a moot point. The fact is, what the researchers believed
was happening was not happening. The oxygen just becomes a part of
the water in the body and/or possibly becomes part of a carbon dioxide
ion, but it cannot be used by the body for anything else.

The Chlorine dioxide supplies electrons. It does not supply oxygen.
Basically, the chlorine dioxide ion is the oxidizer, not the oxygen.
Check your chemistry book. Oxygen is not the only oxidizer. Any
reaction in which electrons are transferred is considered oxidation
. If the
researchers that worked with Stabilized Oxygen had been able to
understand modern chemistry, they may have been much more
successful with their research. There is a lot more to it than this initial
explanation and I intend to go over it thoroughly as I cover the story of
the development of the Miracle Mineral Supplement. It's written so
anyone can understand it.


I developed a plan where I would put some of the story
on the Internet to be distributed throughout the world. The way I
planned to do this was to have the information in an e-mail ready to send
out to the world. I wanted it to be distributed similarly to the way
viruses are often sent. When a person received this MMS information it
would have a tiny program that would allow the person who received it
to easily send it out to every email address on his computer. But of
course he would be in total control. A person would only have to push
one button and the complete information concerning using and making
the MMS would go out to every email address on his computer that he so

Do you see how fast that could propagate across the world? It would go
fast, but there are disadvantages. A book is even better, because not
nearly the amount of information in a book could be put into emails.

I sold the one thing that I had, a special process for recovery of gold. I
received $17,000 for the process. I searched around on the Internet and
finally found a company that claimed they could develop such a
distribution program. I started working with them to get the program
done. I paid $5,000 up front and several thousand as the program
progressed and a large sum at the end. The program never worked. So I
never got a working program and I had spent my money. Just to be fair,
let me tell you the name of the company that refused to furnish me with a
working program after I gave them $14,000. It was Danube
Technologies, Inc. in Seattle Washington.


I know you think that with such a great Miracle Mineral Supplement,
philanthropists like Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates would stand in line to
give me money to carry out our mission, but not so. It takes a while to
get it figured out, but finally you realize it is all based on money or the
desire for prestige. Oprah wants to know what is going to bring her TV
program the biggest audience because that is what brings in the money,
and Bill Gates gets no prestige for helping the little guy. His millions go
to the big pharmaceutical laboratories which in turn bring him powerful
friends throughout the world. To invest in something that works but
reduces the income of the pharmaceutical companies would be
unthinkable. He said over the phone he would not back us until we had
FDA approval. That takes a hundred million dollars and he knew we
would never have that.

I sent many letters to these people and dozens of other organizations. It
wasn't, for the most part, that they wouldn't believe me. For a hundred
years the medical people and the pharmaceutical people with their
billions of dollars have stood shoulder to shoulder using the laws enacted
by congress to hold the alternative medicine people at bay. They have
made them look like quacks and charlatans, but the fact is that millions
of Americans have discovered that they are not. Despite medical
warnings, every year more and more people discover answers in the
alternative medicine area and now it is a many billion dollar business.
You can't possibly think that millions of Americans are so stupid that
they would prefer quacks and charlatans if they were not getting real
help with their health problems. It may surprise you to know that 55%
of the American public now use alternate medicine and have quit going
to the family medical doctor. That's why they are so frantic to get all
supplements under the control of medical people.

And now, since the first edition of this book, the FDA has announced its
intentions of shutting down at least 50% of the alternative medical
businesses. The new law enacted by congress gives the FDA the right to
require that all supplements be tested to prove their efficacy. That means
that the FDA can stop any supplement at any time and require testing. It
could cost up to $100,000,000 for a single supplement. While more than
900,000 people die from drugs each year, the health industry does not
average one death a year. But should someone even report being sick
from a health supplement the FDA can and does stop every supplement
of that kind in the country. In several cases, even though nothing was
wrong, the supplement was never allowed back on the shelves. Now
with this new law, just from what they have said they are going to do, it
is obvious that the FDA intends that nothing but drugs will eventually be
available to those who are sick.

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide

Chapter 3: Stabilized Oxygen, MMS and a Contract


Humble said:
The Stabilized Oxygen mixture has been renamed several times since I
began to make the solution in my kitchen. It is not easy to get the
chemical sodium chlorite, but if you keep at it you can get some. (I'll tell
you how to get it in Book II. It is available in many chemical supply
houses.) I began making the solution much stronger than the Stabilized
Oxygen that is sold on the market. For many years Stabilized Oxygen
was 3.5% sodium chlorite. At this time my solution, which I have
named The Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS), is 28% sodium
chlorite. That's eight times stronger than regular Stabilized Oxygen.
When I am making trips into the jungle, it means I can carry eight times
as much 'healing power' as the original Stabilized Oxygen formula.

Let me explain what has happened. The researchers over the past 80
years have done their tests using from 5 to 20 drops, at the most, of the
3.5% solution. As I started helping people with malaria and other
problems, when a few drops didn't work, I just gave them more. In all
the research I have been able to read concerning Stabilized Oxygen, no
one increased the drops beyond 25 drops and very few ever used that
many. Where did the old idea go that if 10 drops is good, 40 drops is 4
times as good? The only precaution that I took was that I always tried
the heavier doses on myself first. Generally, I was dealing with people
who wanted to get well, and they agreed to try it after I had tested it. I
didn't go from 10 drops of stabilized oxygen to 120 directly, but I finally
wound up at 120 drops and used a second 120 drops one hour later. I did
it a little at a time until I found out what it took to handle a problem. It is
not a drug; it is a mineral supplement. I am an inventor, not a doctor. I
don't even know what the Hippocratic Oath says; I am not trying to do
what doctors do. My goal has been to invent a way to help the immune
system overcome malaria ever since I thought it was possible and I did
accomplish that. In my opinion, I have never put anyone at risk and I
have helped over 2,000 people personally. Over 75,000 people have
overcome malaria with the help of people I trained. The people treated
were 'cured' with no deaths reported in the bunch. Normally over 300
deaths could be expected. When I say 'cured' I'm referring to the fact
that they got up, smiled, put their clothes on and went back to work.
They have not relapsed, as far as we can tell.

Did we do double blind and triple blind tests? No. The money was not
available. Bill Gates told us over the phone that he would not help until
we were FDA approved. Usually, FDA approval costs millions, but
those people in Africa that went back to work feeling good didn't care if
we had FDA approval or not. When I phoned the FDA they said that if I
was using it in Africa they had no say over there so they would not
comment, but if I wanted to get it approved for treatment of malaria in
America, then that would be another story. They didn't care if it was not
a drug. The minute I said treatment of any disease, it then becomes a
drug and you must have all of the countless tests and laboratory
evaluations. That's anywhere from $50,000,000 upwards.

The country of Malawi has accepted MMS as a mineral supplement that
can be given to anyone, including those who are sick. They have shown
a bit of reasonable logic. It isn't likely to happen here in the U.S. The
doctors and pharmaceutical companies have lobbied congress to the tune
of billions of dollars to have all the laws written in their favor to produce
money for them. In the U.S. every year over 900,000 people die from
medical drug related causes. However, when just one single person died
in one year from an amino acid found in a health food store, the FDA
ordered all of that amino acid to be removed from all health food stores
in the U.S. in spite of the fact that it has helped more people than most
drugs. Now, years later, that amino acid is still not allowed. The drug
companies and the FDA are always ready to pounce on anything that
might eat into the profits of pharmaceutical companies. In this particular
case that amino acid was replacing a drug. It was costing the drug
companies money.

So long as one is using a mineral supplement in the attempt to make
people feel better, there is no criticism. So long as one is using a mineral
supplement attempting to make people healthier, there is no criticism,
but the minute one attempts to treat someone for some specific condition
with the same supplement that has been used for 80 years, then that is a
different story. You must be a doctor, you must do clinical trials, and
you must have 100 million dollars for double blind tests and triple blind
tests, and dozens of other requirements. No one offers to furnish the
money; they just tell you what you are required to do. How dare you try
to treat someone for a disease! That's for doctors and pharmaceutical
companies only.

There are many people in America who realize that drugs only treat the
symptoms, not the causes of a disease. Why would a company even
bother to research treating the symptoms of a disease instead of
attempting to find a cure for the disease? Does anyone ever ask that
question? Well, a lot of us do, but not the FDA. The answer is this, so
long as you are treating the symptoms, you won't cure the disease and
you can go on selling that drug until the person dies.

Several wealthy people offered to pay for distributing the MMS
throughout the country of Haiti. They wanted to eliminate malaria in
Haiti. But when we approached more than 15 clinics there, we found
that they were controlled by doctors in the U.S. The doctors in the U.S.
were totally determined that we could not give a single person our
mineral supplement. Haiti went without the supplement and thousands
still have malaria. In any case, it only takes 15 drops of Miracle Mineral
Supplement (MMS) for the first dose given to a malaria patient followed
an hour later with another 15 drops. This is because the MMS is eight
times stronger than regular Stabilized Oxygen. If you were using regular
Stabilized Oxygen, you would need 120 drops at first and then another
120 drops in 1 hour after that.

Has anyone been hurt? No. Thousands of people later there are only
thousands of happy, well people with none claiming any lasting, negative
side effects. In actuality, there are a few instant reactions in about one
out of a hundred people, but that's not a side effect. The reaction
normally lasts less than 30 minutes. Look it up in a medical dictionary
or on the Internet. Side effects are the effect that a drug has on healthy
cells that are not a part of the disease. Instant reactions are the result of
the body adjusting because the MMS is affecting diseased cells or
disease causing germs. There are no effects on healthy cells.

We know that the MMS (28% sodium chlorite) generates chlorine
dioxide (that's CLO2) when mixed with vinegar. The reason why it
produces chlorine dioxide when mixed with vinegar is because the acetic
acid (in the vinegar) causes the solution to be neutralized or, better than
that, causes it to be slightly acidic. The MMS solution is normally
extremely alkaline. When it is made acidic, by adding the vinegar, it
becomes slightly unstable and it begins to release chlorine dioxide. By
measuring the drops and the acetic acid we know that it creates about 3
mg of chlorine dioxide in approximately three minutes. Then when we
add apple juice (or other juice without vitamin C) it dilutes the solution
so that there is about 1 ppm of chlorine dioxide in the total apple juice
mixture. The MMS solution continues to generate chlorine dioxide but
now at a much slower rate.

About chlorine dioxide: Chlorine and chlorine dioxide have been used
to purify water and kill pathogens in hospitals and for many other
antiseptic uses for more than 100 years. Lately chlorine dioxide has been
used more and more frequently, especially to purify water. It is also
authorized by the FDA to be used to clean chicken, beef and other foods.
Research has proven chlorine dioxide to be much safer than chlorine, as
it is selective for pathogens when used in water and it does not create
compounds from other constituents in the water, which chlorine does.
Simple chemistry tells us that without doubt the same situation exists in
the body. It has been proven that chlorine in drinking water creates at
least three different carcinogenic compounds when it enters the body, but
no such compounds have been found from chlorine dioxide. The
American Society of Analytical Chemists stated in 1999 that chlorine
dioxide was the most powerful pathogen killer known to man.

If this is the case, and it is, then you would have thought that the
pharmaceutical companies would have said to themselves, Hmm, if
chlorine dioxide is such a powerful killer of bacteria, viruses, and other
germs, and since it is used to kill viruses on food throughout that
industry, maybe, just maybe it could be used to kill those things in the
human body. But no, they wanted a drug that makes you feel a little bit
better and can be sold over and over again. No point in using something
that's going to cure someone on the first dose! Pharmaceutical
companies should have discovered it 100 years ago, but they didn't. You
might say that is just my opinion, my truth, but I am going to have to call
it a fact because it is such an obvious truth. There is no excuse why
research has not been conducted with a solution that has been used for
100 years to kill disease causing germs. The pharmaceutical companies
not only didn't do the research, but they actually refused to test the
Stabilized Oxygen many times.

So what happens when you put Stabilized Oxygen in the body? It goes
down into the stomach at first. There are dozens of research papers
which state that when it comes in contact with strong stomach acids, it
breaks down into oxygen immediately. They haven't however stated the
tests that prove this hypothesis. I used stomach acids in a test glass and
that result never happened. Even when I tripled the strength of the acid
in the glass to three times what would normally be found in the stomach,
it never broke the sodium chlorite down immediately. In fact, it never
increased the speed of production of chlorine dioxide beyond maybe
100th of a milligram per hour, in other words, practically nothing. And,
of course, creating chlorine dioxide and sodium (tiny insignificant
amounts of sodium) is all that can happen when the sodium chlorite does
break down. There isn't anything else left. That is all that's there. The
chlorine dioxide 'explodes' when touching various items of lower
acidity than the body by accepting five electrons with tremendous
energy. It will almost always be things that are bad for the body.
Otherwise, it simply bounces off the healthy cells. There is more about
this later in the book (see chapter 14). Again chlorine dioxide is the
oxidizer here, not oxygen.

Without the use of vinegar, lemon, lime or citric acid, a tiny amount of
chlorine dioxide is all that will be produced. Any benefit from the
Stabilized Oxygen has to be derived from the tiny amount of chlorine
dioxide because there is nothing else except an insignificant amount of
sodium. Because there was indeed some benefit from Stabilized Oxygen
we know that the chlorine dioxide was doing it. The oxygen that is
finally released by the chlorine dioxide is not useable by the body.
Because all Stabilized Oxygen sold on the market today is a solution of
sodium chlorite, there are no electrolytes of usable oxygen to be derived
from Stabilized Oxygen.

With the addition of vinegar the conditions change drastically. At first,
with the 20 drops and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of full strength vinegar, the
body receives an amount of about 3 milligrams of chlorine dioxide in the
mixture when the apple juice has been added to the dose mixture. The
solution then continues to generate chlorine dioxide for the next 12 hours
within the body.

The red blood cells that normally carry oxygen throughout the body have
no mechanism to differentiate between chlorine dioxide and oxygen.
Thus, in the walls of the stomach where the blood picks up nutrients of
various kinds, when a chlorine dioxide ion touches a red blood cell it is
accepted. If there happens to be a malaria parasite present it will be
destroyed and the chlorine dioxide will be destroyed as well. If there are
no parasites present, the chlorine dioxide will be carried by the red blood
cell to some part of the body where oxygen would normally be used to
oxidize poisons and other bad things. There the chlorine dioxide is
released. The chlorine dioxide has over a hundred times more energy to
do the same thing that the oxygen would do but it still won\u2019t hurt any
healthy cells, more than likely because the immune system has the
chlorine dioxide under control.

This is the point where I like to compare the chlorine dioxide ion to a
good Tasmanian devil and the disease germs to bad Terrorists. The
Tasmanian devil is a small fellow, but is known for his ferocity. The
red blood cell is the bus that carries oxygen, and the conductor
doesn't care. He will also carry the Tasmanian devil. Taz, the
chlorine dioxide, is let off by the red blood cell at approximately the
same spot that oxygen would normally be let off. The terrorists are
not even worried. They can handle Mr. Oxygen. But this time there
is a surprise. The guy that gets off the bus is ferocious. He\u2019s much
worse than the oxygen that normally gets off. He jumps out and kills
every single terrorist that is present that is harmful to the body. So
when the red blood cell bus arrives, MEET TAZ.

If the chlorine dioxide does not hit anything that can set it off, it will
begin to deteriorate and thus gain an electron or two. This may allow it
to combine with other substances, creating a very important substance
that the immune system utilizes to make hypochlorous acid.
Hypochlorous acid is probably the most important acid of the immune
system. It kills pathogens, killer cells, even cancerous cells with this
acid. When the body has a deficiency in the important substance from
which the immune system creates the hypochlorous acid, it is called
myeloperoxidase deficiency. Many people are afflicted with this
deficiency and the deficiency may increase during diseased situations
because the immune system needs a great deal more of this acid when a
disease is present. There are some suppositions here. In any case we definitely know that
chlorine dioxide is made in the body from sodium chlorite and it then
kills the hell out of pathogens.

There is one other function that the chlorine dioxide does in the body. It
tends to neutralize poisons. Almost all substances that are poisonous to
the body are, to some extent, acidic in nature or below the neutrality of
the body. The chlorine dioxide will neutralize many of these poisons.
We believe that can be the only explanation why a malaria victim often
goes from totally sick to totally well in less than four hours. The poisons
that malaria generates are neutralized by the chlorine dioxide at the same
time the parasites are killed. I gave some chlorine dioxide to a dog that
was bitten by a rattlesnake. I gave him a drink of the solution every 1/2
hour. The dog seemed to know it would help him and he drank it right
down each time I gave it to him. He was okay in a few hours, which
would indicate that the poison was probably neutralized by the chlorine

One has to wonder why searching for almost anything related to alternative health / nature cures related versus drug & medical treatment that Google offers up Quackwatch as the top results nearly all the time, why would that be. Could Quackwatch be a legitamate web site that informs the public of dangerous nature cures? I think not….

Quackwatch embodies a suspected industry-funded site filled with what many believe are lies by a de-licensed and discredited “doctor” Stephen Barret that was forced to give up his medical license in Pennsylvania in 1993 whose chief function is to discredit any natural or alternative treatment which jeopardizes the profits of the trillion dollar plus world pharmaceutical and medical conglomerate.
I look at a Quackwatch condemnation to almost be nearly as valuable of an indicator of how GREAT whatever they’re condemning really is as an FDA condemnation or suppressiver action against something - and make no mistake, they both answer to the very same masters. It’s no accident that the FDA has made colloidal silver their lead target in annihilating mainstream competition and the reasons are rather clear - it works far better than anything mainstream medicine has to offer.
At the best, mainstream antibiotic drugs and other products might kill a handful of pathogens - and every year numerous people die from reactions to antibiotics. Colloidal Silver has been proven to obliterate over 650 and counting and has never killed anybody. Ironic indeed is the fact that up until antibiotic drugs came from the druglord labs, the FDA had authorized 34 different prescribed and over-the-counter products containing silver - and the silver was in a much more primitive form and much higher concentration. And coincidentally, about the same time folks started to figure out how to produce much superior silver solutions and antibiotics began to appear, colloidial silver approval was abruptly withdrawn.

The dilemma now faced by the Feds and their druglord owners now face is explaining how silver is suddenly so dangerous that it’s an imminent health threat which necessitates to be banned immediately. However this does not change the fact that it has been used for 1000s of years, was at one time endorsed by the Food and Drug Administration, and is now utilized by NASA, hospitals, protective clothing manufacturers (for hospital pajamas), water purification systems, and a great deal more.

Once you consider the history of the Food and Drug Administration activities, such as their raids on herbal supplements and their inaction on Vioxx, Bextra, Alleve, Fosamax, Gardasil, Avandia, ad infinitum, and the history of Quackwatch lies and propaganda, you promptly and transparently see where the motivation comes from. What those minions consider most harmful about items such as colloidal silver and MMS (which are cheaper, safer and more effective than just about anything mainstream has to offer) is that they represent a danger to the profit margins.

If you take nothing else from this article you should take this; only you should decided what is right for you and not some trillion dollar profiteering industry. The world isn’t black and white you have choices don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

On The Mechanisms Of Toxicity Of Chlorine Oxides
Against Malarial Parasites

An Overview
By Thomas Lee Hesselink, MD

Copyright September 6, 2007

• The purpose of this article is to propose research.
• Nothing in this article is intended as medical advice.
• No claims, promises nor guarantees are made.


Sodium chlorite (NaClO2) can be acidified as a convenient method to produce chlorine dioxide (ClO2) which is a strong oxidant and a potent disinfectant. A protocol has been developed whereby a solution of these compounds can be taken orally. This procedure rapidly eliminates malaria and other infectious agents in only one dose. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is highly reactive with thiols, polyamines, purines, certain amino acids and iron, all of which are necessary for the growth and survival of pathogenic microbes. Properly dosed this new treatment is tolerable orally with only transient side effects. More research to better document efficacy in malaria and in other infections is urgently called for.

Jim Humble, a modern gold prospecting geologist, needed to travel to malaria infested areas numerous times. He or his coworkers would on occassion contract malaria. At times access to modern medical treatment was absolutely unavailable. Under such dire circumstances it was found that a solution useful to sanitize drinking water was also effective to treat malaria if diluted and taken orally. Despite no formal medical training Mr. Humble had the innate wisdom to experiment with various dosage and administration techniques. Out of such necessity was invented an easy to use treatment for malaria which was found rapidly effective in almost all cases.

The procedure as used by Mr. Humble follows: A 28% stock solution of 80% (technical grade) sodium chlorite (NaClO2) is prepared. The remaining 20% is a mixture of the usual excipients necessary in the manufacture and stabilization of sodium chlorite powder or flake. Such are mostly sodium chloride (NaCl) ~19%, sodium hydroxide (NaOH) <1%, and sodium chlorate (NaClO3) <1%. The actual sodium chlorite present is therefore 22.4%. Using a medium caliber dropper (25 drops per cc), the usual administered dose per treatment is 6 to 15 drops. In terms of milligrams of sodium chlorite, this calculates out to 9mg per drop or 54mg to 135mg per treatment. Effectiveness is enhanced, if prior to administration the selected drops are premixed with 2.5 to 5 cc of table vinegar or lime juice or 5-10% citric acid and allowed to react for 3 minutes. The resultant solution is always mixed into a glass of water or apple juice and taken orally. The carboxylic acids neutralize the sodium hydroxide and at the same time convert a small portion of the chlorite (ClO2-) to its conjugate acid known as chlorous acid (HClO2). Under such conditions the chlorous acid will oxidize other chlorite anions and gradually produce chlorine dioxide (ClO2). Chlorine dioxide appears in solution as a yellow tint which smells exactly like elemental chlorine (Cl2). The above described procedure can be repeated a few hours later if necessary. Considerably lower dosing should be applied in children or in emaciated individuals scaled down according to size or weight. The diluted solution can be taken without food to enhance effectiveness but this often causes nausea. Drinking extra water usually relieves this. Nausea is less likely to occur if food is present in the stomach. Starchy food is preferable to protein as protein quenches chlorine dioxide. Significant amounts of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) must not be present at any point in the mixtures or else this will quench the chlorine dioxide (ClO2) and render it ineffective. For the same reason antioxidant supplements should not be taken on the day of treatment. Other side effects reported are transient vomiting, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, lethargy or malaise.

I first learned of Jim Humble's remarkable discovery in the fall of 2006. That sodium chlorite or chlorine dioxide could kill parasites in vivo seemed immediately reasonable to me at the onset. It is well known that many disease causing organisms are sensitive to oxidants. Various compounds classifiable as oxides of chlorine such as sodium hypochlorite and chlorine dioxide are already widely used as disinfectants. What is novel and exciting here is that Mr. Humble's technique seems: 1) easy to use, 2) rapidly acting, 3) successful, 4) apparently lacking in toxicity, and 5) affordable. If this treatment continues to prove effective, it could be used to help rid the world of one of the most devasting of all known plagues. Especially moving in me is the empathy I feel for anyone with a debilitating febrile illness. I cannot forget how horrible I feel whenever I have caught influenza. How much more miserable it must be to suffer like that again and again every 2 to 3 days as happens in malaria. Millions of people suffer this way year round. 1 to 3 million die from malaria every year mostly children. Thus motivated I sought to learn all I could about the chemistry of the oxides of chlorine. I wanted to understand their probable mechanisms of toxicity towards the causative agents of malaria (Plasmodium species). I wanted to check available literature pertaining to issues of safety or risk in human use.

Oxidants are atoms or molecules which take up electrons. Reductants are atoms or molecules which donate electrons to oxidants. I was already very familiar with most of the medicinally useful oxidants. I had taught at numerous seminars on their use and explained their mechanisms of action on the biochemical level. Examples are: hydrogen peroxide, zinc peroxide, various quinones, various glyoxals, ozone, ultraviolet light, hyperbaric oxygen, benzoyl peroxide, anodes, artemisinin, methylene blue, allicin, iodine and permanganate. Some work has been done using dilute solutions of sodium chlorite internally to treat fungal infections, chronic fatigue, and cancer; however, little has been published in that regard.

Low dose oxidant exposure to living red blood cells induces a change in oxyhemoglobin (Hb-O2) activity so that more oxygen (O2) is released to tissues throughout the body. Hyperbaric oxygenation (oxygen under pressure): 1) is a powerful detoxifier against carbon monoxide; 2) is a powerful support for natural healing in burns, crush injuries, and ischemic strokes; and 3) is an effective aid to treat most bacterial infections.

Taken internally, intermittently and in low doses many oxidants have been found to be powerful immune stimulants. Sodium chlorite acidified with lactic acid as in the product "WF10" has similarly been shown to modulate immune activation. Exposure of live blood to ultraviolet light also has immune enhancing effects. These treatments work through a natural physiologic trigger mechanism, which induces peripheral white blood cells to express and to release cytokines. These cytokines serve as a control system to down-regulate allergic reactions and as an alarm system to increase cellular attack against pathogens.

Activated cells of the immune system naturally produce strong oxidants as part of the inflammatory process at sites of infection or cancer to rid the body of these diseases. Examples are: superoxide (*OO-), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), hydroxyl radical (HO*), singlet oxygen (O=O) and ozone (O3). Another is peroxynitrate (-OONO) the coupled product of superoxide (*OO-) and nitric oxide (*NO) radicals. Yet another is hypochlorous acid (HOCl) the conjugate acid of sodium hypochlorite (NaClO). The immune system uses these oxidants to attack various parasites.

All bacteria have been shown to be incabable of growing in any medium in which the oxidants (electron grabbers) out-number the reductants (electron donors). Therefore, oxidants are at least bacteriostatic and at most are bacteriocidal. Many oxidants have been proven useful as antibacterial disinfectants. Hypochlorites (ClO-) are commonly used as bleaching agents, as swimming pool sanitizers, and as disinfectants. At low concentrations chlorine dioxide (ClO2) has been shown to kill many types of bacteria, viruses and protozoa. Ozone (O3) or chlorine dioxide (ClO2) are often used to disinfect public water supplies or to sanitize and deodorize waste water. Sodium chlorite (NaClO2) or chlorine dioxide (ClO2) solutions are used in certain mouth washes to clear mouth odors and oral bacteria. Chlorine dioxide sanitizes food preparation facilities. Acidified sodium chlorite is FDA approved as a spray in the meat packing industry to sanitized meat. This can also be used to sanitize vegetables and other foods. Farmers use this to cleanse the udders of cows to prevent mastitis, or to rid eggs of pathogenic bacteria. Chlorine dioxide can be used to disinfect endoscopes. Oxidants such as iodine, various peroxides, permanganate and chlorine dioxide can be applied topically to the skin to treat infections caused by bacteria or fungi.

From November 2006 through May of 2007 I spent hundreds of hours searching biochemical literature and medical literature pertaining to the biochemistry of Plasmodia. Four species are commonly pathogenic in humans namely: Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium ovale and Plasmodium malariae. What I found was an abundance of confirmation that, just like bacteria, Plasmodia are indeed quite sensitive to oxidants. Examples of oxidants toxic to Plasmodia include: artemisinin, artemether, t-butyl hydroperoxide, xanthone, various quinones (e.g. atovaquone, lapachol, beta-lapachone, menadione) and methylene blue.

Like bacteria, fungi and tumor cells, the ability of Plasmodia to live and grow depends heavily on an internal abundance of reductants. This is especially true regarding thiol compounds also known as sulfhydryl compounds (RSH). Thiols as a class behave as reductants (electron donors). As such they are especially sensitive to oxidants (electron grabbers). Thiols (RSH) such as glutathione and other sulfur compounds are reactive with sodium chlorite (NaClO2) and with chlorine dioxide (ClO2). These are the very agents present in Mr. Humble's solution. The products of oxidation of thiols (RSH) using various oxides of chlorine are: disulfides (RSSR), disulfide monoxides (RSSOR), sulfenic acids (RSOH), sulfinic acids (RSO2H), and sulfonic acids (RSO3H). None of these can support the life processes of the parasite. Upon sufficient removal of the parasite's life sustaining thiols by oxidation, the parasite rapidly dies. A list of thiols (RSH) upon which survival of Plasmodium species heavily depend includes: lipoic acid and dihydrolipoic acid, coenzyme A and acyl carrier protein, glutathione, glutathione reductase, glutathione-S-transferase, peroxiredoxin, thioredoxin, glutaredoxin, plasmoredoxin, thioredoxin reductase, falcipain and ornithine decarboxylase.

Of particular relevance to treating malaria is the fact that Plasmodial trophozoites living inside red blood cells must digest hemoglobin as their preferred protein source. They accomplish this by ingesting hemoglobin into an organelle known as the "acid food vacuole". Incidently, the high concentration of acid in this organelle could serve as an additional site of conversion of chlorite (ClO2-) to the more active chlorine dioxide (ClO2) right inside the parasite. Furthermore, Plasmodia consume 50 to 100 times more glucose than noninfected red blood cells most of which is metabolized to lactic acid a known activator of chlorite.

Next falcipain a hemoglobin digesting enzyme hydrolyzes hemoglobin protein to release its nutritional amino acids. A necessary byproduct of this digestion is the release of 4 heme molecules from each hemoglobin molecule digested. Free heme (also known as ferriprotoporphyrin IX) is redox active and can react with ambient oxygen (O2), an abundance of which is always present in red blood cells. This produces superoxide radical (*OO-), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and other reactive oxidant toxic species (ROTS). These can rapidly poison the parasite internally. To protect themselves against this dangerous side-effect of eating blood protein, Plasmodia must maintain a high reductant capacity (an abundance of reduced thiols and NADPH) to quench these ROTS. This is their main mechanism of antioxidant defense.

Plasmodia must also rapidly and continuously eliminate heme, which is accomplished by two methods. Firstly, heme is polymerized producing hemozoin. Secondly, heme is metabolized in a detoxification process that requires reduced glutathione (GSH). Therefore any method (especially exposure to oxidants) which limits the availability of reduced glutathione (GSH) will cause a toxic build up of heme and of ROTS inside the parasite cells. Sodium chlorite and chlorine dioxide (the exact agents present in Mr. Humble's treatment) readily oxidize glutathione. Therefore, a rapid killing of Plasmodia upon taking acidified sodium chlorite orally should be expected.

Now the issue of resistance of Plasmodium species to commonly used antiprotozoal antibiotics must be addressed. Quinine, chloroquine, mefloquine, quinacrine, amodiaquine, primaquine and other quinoline-like antibiotics all work by blocking the heme detoxifying system inside the trophozoites. Many Plasmodial strains against which quinolines have repeatedly been used have found ways to adapt to these drugs and to acquire resistance. Research into the mechanisms of resistance has found that often resistance is accomplished by a meere upregulation of glutathione production and utilization. Consequently oxidizing or otherwise depleting glutathione inside the parasite usually restores sensitivity to the quinoline antibiotics. Therefore, protocols combining the use of oxidants with quinolines are under developement and already showing signs of success. In this context let us consider that no amount of intraplasmodial glutathione (GSH) could ever resist exposure to a suffient dose of chlorine dioxide (ClO2). Note that each molecule of ClO2 can disable 1 to 5 molecules of glutathione depending on the reaction mechanism.
2(GSH) + 2(ClO2) -> 1(GSSG) + 2(H+) + 2(ClO2-)
or 10(GSH) + 2(ClO2) -> 5(GSSG) + 2(H+) + 2(Cl-) + 4(H2O)

Acidified sodium chlorite could provide a powerful new opportunity to improve or to restore sensitivity to quinolines by virtue of its oxidative power. However, quinolines contain secondary or tertiary amino groups which react with chlorine dioxide in such a way that both could destroy each other. Some possible strategies to resolve this incompatibility are suggested below.

1. Acidified sodium chlorite could be used as explained above only as a solo therapy.

2. Quinoline administration could be withheld until after the acidified sodium chorite has completed its action.

3. Patients already preloaded with a quinoline could stop this, wait a suitable period of time for this to wash out, then administer the acidified sodium chlorite.

4. The quinoline could remain in use and while the less active sodium chlorite is administered without acid. This should retain plenty of oxidant effectiveness without destroying any quinoline or wasting too much oxidant.

5. Switch from a quinoline to an endoperoxide (such as artemisinin) or to a quinone (such as atovaquone) before using acidified sodium chlorite, as these may be less sensitive toward destruction by chlorine dioxide.

Similar problems apply to methylene blue and many other drugs if they have an unoxidized sulfur atom, a phenol group, a secondary amine or a tertiary amine. Such are also very reactive with the chlorine dioxide component.

Living things possess a recovery system to rescue oxidized sulfur compounds. It operates through donation of hydrogen atoms to these compounds and thereby restores their original condition as thiols.

2 [H] + (GSSG) -> 2(GSH)

This system is known as the hexose monophophate shunt. A key player in this system is the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate- dehydrogenase (G6PDH). Patients with a genetic defect of G6PDH, known as glucose-6-phosphate-dehydrogenase deficiency disease, are especially sensitive to oxidants and to prooxidant drugs. However, this genetic disease has a benefit in that such individuals are naturally resistant to malaria. They can still catch malaria, but it is much less severe in them, since they permanently lack the enzyme necessary to assist the parasite in reactivating glutathione and other oxidized thiols. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) has been shown to oxidize and denature G6PDH by reaction with tyrosine and tryptophan residues inside the enzyme. Furthermore, G6PDH is sensitive to inhibition by sodium chlorate (NaClO3), another member of the chlorine oxide family of compounds. Sodium chlorate (NaClO3) is a trace ingredient present in Jim Humble's antimalarial solution. Some sodium chlorate (NaClO3) should also be produced in vivo by a slow reaction of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) with water under alkaline conditions.

2(ClO2) + 2(OH-) -> (ClO2-) + (ClO3-) + H2O

The Plasmodia may attempt to restore any thiols (RSH) lost to oxidation. However, this becomes more difficult as G6PDH is inhibited by chlorine dioxide (ClO2) or by chlorate (ClO3-).

While most available literature refers to redox imbalances causing depletion of necessary thiols. Other mechanisms of toxicity of the oxides of chlorine against Plasmodia should also be considered. Oxides of chlorine are generally rapidly reactive with ferrous iron (Fe++) converting it to ferric (Fe+++). This explains why in cases of overdosed exposures to oxides of chlorine such as sodium chlorite (NaClO2) there was a notable rise in methemoglobin levels. Methemoglobin is a metabolically inactive form of hemoglobin in which its ferrous iron (Fe++) cofactor has been oxidized to ferric (Fe+++). In living things including parasites iron is a necessary cofactor for many enzymes. Thus it is reasonable to expect that any damage to Plasmodia caused by oxides of chlorine is compounded by conversion of ferrous (Fe++) cofactors to ferric (Fe+++) or other alterations of iron compounds. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) inside Plasmodial cells also utilizes iron in its active center. Chlorine dioxide also oxidizes manganese.

Other metabolites necessary for survival and growth in tumors, bacteria and parasites are the polyamines. Plasmodia quit growing and die, when polyamines are lacking, or when their functions are blocked. Polyamines are also sensitive to oxidation and can be eliminated by strong oxidants. When oxidized, polyamines are converted to aldehydes, which are deadly to parasites and to tumors. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is known to be especially reactive against secondary amines. This includes spermine and spermidine the two main biologically important polyamines. Thus any procedure, which is successful to oxidize both thiols and polyamines does quadruple damage to the pathogen: 1) oxidation of the thiol ornithine decarboxylase inhibits polyamine synthesis; 2) oxidation of the thiol S-adenosyl-L-methionine decarboxylase also inhibits polyamine synthesis; 3) oxidation of the secondary amines spermidine and spermine depletes polyamine supplies; 4) the products of polyamine oxidation are toxic aldehydes.

Purines are essential to many life processes. These molecules have a double ring structure. The rings are heterocyclic being composed of both carbon and nitrogen. The nitrogen atoms are vulnerable to reaction with chlorine dioxide. Examples of important biologic purines are xanthine, hypoxanthine, inosine, guanine and adenine. Guanine and adenine are essential components of DNA and RNA necessary for all genetic functions and for all protein syntheses. Adenine is an essential component of the cofactors NADH, NADPH, FAD and ATP, necessary for many metabolic functions including oxidation- reduction and energy metabolism. Any purines lost by chlorine dioxide exposure can be readily replaced by host cells. Plasmodia and other apicomplexae are uniquely vulnerable to purine deficiency as they lack the enzymes necessary to produce purines for themselves. Instead these must be scavenged from host cells and imported across the plasma membranes of the parasite cells. Drugs are under development to inhibit purine utilization by Plasmodia and are already showing signs of success. Temporarily destroying some of the purines in the blood as should occur upon brief exposure to chlorine dioxide in vivo is probably an additional stress that Plasmodia cannot tolerate.

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is highly reactive with thiols, phenols, secondary amines and tertiary amines. Therefore, proteins composed of amino acids which present these reactive groups are vulnerable to oxidation by this agent. Proteins which present residue(s) of the amino acid L-cysteine are discussed above under TARGETING THIOLS. L-tyrosine presents a phenol group and is therefore similarly vulnerable. L-tryptophan and L-histidine present secondary amino groups which are also especially reactive with chlorine dioxide.

A remaining concern is safety. So far, at least anecdotally, the dosages of chlorine oxides as administered orally per Jim Humble's protocol have produced no definite toxicity. Some have taken this as often as 1 to 3 times weekly and on the surface seem to suffer no ill effects. To be certain if this is safe more research is warranted for such long term or repeated use. The concern is that too much or too frequent administration of oxidants could excessively deplete the body's reductants and promote oxidative stress. One useful way to monitor this may be to periodically check methemoglobin levels in frequent users. Sodium chlorite, as found in municipal water supplies after disinfection by chorine dioxide, has been studied and proven safe. Animal studies using much higher oral or topical doses have proven relatively safe. In a suicide attempt 10g of sodium chlorite taken orally caused refractory methemoglobinemia and nearly fatal kidney failure and refractory methemoglobinemia. Inhalation or aerosol exposure to chlorine dioxide gas is highly irritating and generally not recommended. Special precautions must be employed in cases of glucose-6-phosphate-dehydrogenase deficiency disease, as these patients are especially sensitive to oxidants of all kinds. Nevertheless, oral acidified sodium chlorite solutions might even be found safe and effective in them, but probably will need to be administered at lower doses.

It is hoped that this overview will spark a flurry of interest, and stimulate more research into the use of acidified sodium chlorite in the treatment of malaria. The above appreciated observations need to be proven more rigorously and published. The biochemistry most likely involved suggests that other members of the phylum Apicomplexa should also be sensitive to this treatment. This phylum includes: Plasmodium, Babesia, Toxoplasma, Cryptosporidium, Eimeria, Theileria, Sarcocystis, Cyclospora, Isospora and Neospora. These pathogens are responsible for widespread diseases in humans, pets and cattle. Other thiol dependent parasites should also be susceptible to acidified sodium chlorite. For example Trypanosoma and Leishmania extensively utilize and cannot survive without the cofactor known as trypanothione. Each molecule of trypanothione presents 2 sulfur atoms and 5 secondary amino groups all of which are vulnerable to oxidative destruction from chlorine dioxide (ClO2).
Chlorine dioxide has been proven to be cidal to almost all known infectious agents in vitro using remarkably low concentrations. This includes parasites, fungi, bacteria and viruses. The experiences noted above imply that this compound is tolerable orally at effective concentrations. Therefore extensive research is warranted to determine if acidified sodium chlorite is effective in treating other infections. We may be on the verge of discovering the most potent and broad spectrum antimicrobial agent yet known. Special thanks go to Jim Humble for his willingness to share his discovery with the world.

We are finding more and more that many degenerative diseases have a common background which is a dysfunction of the immune system. In the last 60 years, we have dramatically changed our lifestyle and our environment and the way we eat. All these changes have taken a toll. One which I regret very much is the widespread use of antibiotics, particularly for children, which results in modifying and handicapping the immune performance to a dramatic degree, and which may produce cancer, chronic illnesses and degenerative disease very early in life. In adolescents, the second cause of death in the U.S.is cancer, the first being accidents. Cancer is actually an immune deficiency. We all produce abnormal cancerous cells every day, but if we have a strong immune system, it will search for them, locate them and destroy them. If the immune system does not do that cancer will develop. We are seeing more of these diseases in younger people all the time. The medical profession has created some of these medical problems in the first place and in the second place, they have a narrow vision and they fail to listen. The saying that doctor knows best is very common, but unfortunately not always true. You are talking to a man who thinks he knows and there is nothing worse. The best example of the truth of this is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. When you start feeling sick, you go to the doctor, and the doctor does all the tests to make a beautiful diagnosis. Then what happens? Everything comes back normal and the doctor says there is nothing wrong with you even though you feel miserable. I know people who have gone through this thing for years. What happened? The doctor failed to recognize that the patient could have an illness he doesn't even know about. That is what has happened with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a number of symptoms which develop because of the settling in and growing of viruses that are not considered normal, like Epstein Barr virus. For instance, 90% of the population has had contact with the Epstein Barr virus. It is easily transmitted through saliva. It is connected with, and some people consider it to be the very same virus as mononucleosis. These are viruses that normally live within us, but under certain circumstances will turn around and produce illness. "We are tired, we cannot do our work, we sleep a lot, we don't have any energy, we can barely move, etc". What is really happening is that our immune system has become so weak that these viruses are allowed to grow.


ANTIBIOTICS: Many people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have poor immune development and have chronic infections, such as problems of the throat and the upper respiratory tract, and they have been given antibiotics constantly which only made it worse because it diminished immunity more. This in turn produced more infections, which needed more antibiotics, and so on. I know people who have been on antibiotics for years. Another example of overuse of antibiotics is acne. When people develop acne, they are given tetracycline, even though the best treatment for acne is diet. That is common knowledge. Tetracycline is so controversial that in America it is almost off the market. The problem with tetracycline is that people have taken it a lot; it is a wide-spectrum antibiotic, and when you put it in the bowel, it will kill everything it finds. So I am against the use of tetracycline, not only in the long term, but also in the short term. In the case of cholera, it is life-saving, but other than that, if you don't have a very specific use for an antibiotic, don't use it. We see a pattern of chronic infections with this type of antibiotic history in people who have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We call it the "yuppie flu". The typical patient is a young successful adult who has probably been on antibiotics all his life, usually under high stress because of professional goals and so forth; then they develop Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

STRESS: We have to modify the environment of stress that these people live under. These achievers who have all these goals, normally are people who are very sensitive to stress. You could be working all day long, you could work like a horse and at the end of the day be very happy. That person is not under stress. Some people don't have that much work but they take everything too seriously, too formally. They let everything annoy them. These people live under constant stress for nothing. So it is very important to remember that taking things well is one of the best preventative medicines that you can give to anyone and it costs absolutely nothing. I can work like crazy to reach my goals as long as I'm not pushing myself. It's not because I have to, it's just because I really love to do this. Many people live to work instead of working to live. A balance of all these things is necessary. You work all day long, then you go to a party and drink and go to bed late and get up early in the morning. To the body, all that partying is interpreted as work. You never quit working, even if you thought you were having fun, your body is not having fun. You are using drugs like tea and coffee and alcohol to keep active and happy. But if you let go of all those things, you would collapse and go to bed, which is what normal people should do.

So how are we going to treat this? We can treat it in two ways. (i) We have to curb the population of the virus and stop it. That is where we have to use the oxidants - the oxidative therapies. The one we use is dioxychlor. (ii) Once you do that you have to work on strengthening the person's immunity. So a complete treatment of Epstein Barr should include both the treatment of the virus itself and an immune boosting treatment.

DIOXYCHLOR: When we first saw these cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, we were beginning to work with dioxychlor. We were using dioxychlor mainly for Candida. We prefer dioxychlor because it provides a steady release of oxygen in the blood rather than the very rapid dramatic release you get when you use hydrogen peroxide. It is easier to use than ozone therapy. Ozone is not easy to follow up, and equipment is very expensive. And ozone itself has a degree of toxicity on the professionals who use it every day. Dioxychlor is a molecule that releases oxygen much in the same way as ozone itself or peroxides do. But the problem with peroxide is that we have enzymes in our blood to get rid of peroxide. Every time you put blood and peroxide together, you get an immediate reaction that is going to release all the oxygen instantly as well as a lot of heat in the process. You can see this clearly when you put peroxide in a wound. It bubbles because of the immediate and fast release of high amounts of oxygen and heat. So when peroxide is given intravenously, you release the oxygen immediately. It won't reach everywhere you want it to go, so you have to inject it in a constant way, and in many people, it will produce vein burns. It may eventually even close the vein because of scar tissue formation. We like dioxychlor because it releases oxygen, it is not affected by blood enzymes and releases the oxygen at a steady pace. It is a small molecule, so it diffuses into the tissue. It can reach a lot of the organs and actually kill Candida on the way. As is true for ozone and peroxide, dioxychlor will kill not only viruses but bacteria and fungi as well.

When we started using dioxychlor for people who had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, many of whom had Candida as well, we saw the titers of Epstein Barr coming down. In more than 80% of the patients, we got over 50% improvement in the blood titers in a period no longer than 10 days of intravenous dioxychlor. People started getting better all the time, but then went right back to having symptoms after a few months. Why? Because the Epstein Barr virus is not the cause. It is not like a pneumonia. In pneumonia, or flu, you are healthy, somebody sneezes and they pass the virus onto you. The virus will grow and you get ill. With Epstein Barr, it is nothing that you caught. It is something that lives within you. Candida and Epstein Barr live within you. The environment, as clean as it looks, is not sterile. We live surrounded by life and there is a lot of life that lives on us. Intestinal flora is a good example. We have a lot of bacteria in our mouths, in our saliva, and every time we breathe, we breathe in a lot of bacteria and fungi and everything else. And we have a lot of systems to detoxify and to clean these bacteria. In some cases, however, if healthy people are so surrounded by people who are infected, they may become so loaded with the virus they can develop the disease.

How do you boost the immune system? Fasting a few days, diet, cellular extracts and live cell therapy are some of the most effective ways to do it. Diet and diet and diet, with proper nutrition. Proper nutrition is really the foundation of every intelligent treatment no matter what, whether you are talking about cancer or allergies or a degenerative disease. You have to work with these people to boost the immune system. We put them in a detoxification program where you go through a fast for a few days, then you are reintroduced to foods in the form of mild fruits like papaya and mango and enzyme-rich fruits like papaya and pineapple. Then some vegetables, steamed vegetables and some grains, and then you are reinitiated to normal proper nutrition. We do live cell therapy, which is the use of active fetal tissue from a calf or sheep which is 3 months into pregnancy. When you put foreign tissue into the body you are going to develop antibodies against it, but the developing fetus is immunologically silent and will not produce antibodies. So you take the thymus, or the intestine or the heart or brain in a nutrient solution and they are injected. Cellular extracts are also given by injection for regeneration.

A great immune system develops through immune challenges. You have to provide a better environment for your body so that your body can do better with it. If I develop the flu, I am not going to take anything. I am going to let my body develop and fight it; so I am going to go to bed for 2 or 3 days, stay in bed, watch TV, be quiet, and drink a lot of water. If you go to bed for 2 or 3 days, you will be much healthier than you were before because everything is working a lot better.

Q: What do you do if your child has a very high fever? A: Do what pediatricians do in the hospital. Control the fever by physical methods. In a big hospital, they don't give the child any drugs. They will put him in a cool bath or use cold compresses. That is urgent because the brain can stand only so much temperature. The antibiotic itself is not going to lower the fever. And in many cases it can increase it, and in many cases a lot of antibiotics (except penicillin) are immune suppressors, which is wild. You are using an immune suppressant to treat an infection. The antibiotic can only work so far. It is your immune system which finishes the job. That's why people without immune systems cannot get well with antibiotics. They will still die of the infection. I'm not saying you shouldn't seek medical advice, but make your doctor aware that you are concerned about this fact.

Q: How do you treat a tooth abscess? A: You develop a tooth abscess because you have neglected a lot of things for a long long time. If the infection goes into the bone and so forth, you have to use antibiotics. There is no way out of it.

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide

For those using MMS and having nausea.

From: _http://mmssupersite.com/MMS-faq.pdf

Is there any other way to get MMS into my body? Yes Go to this address: _http://mmsarticles.
com/ Once there, scroll down to the article about MMS Tub water baths. This protocol puts
your entire skin and scalp area in contact with the Chlorine dioxide gas. Each bath takes 20
minutes. The amount of water in the tub is unimportant – add more and keep it hot during the 20
minute soak. With a cup pour the tub water on your scalp, shoulders, and all over. Note that this
method introduces MMS into the skin and surface muscles while inducing almost no threat of
nausea. Read more about it at the address above
And for the bathing instruction:


Suggestions for Bathing in MMS Tub Water.

In addition to taking oral doses of MMS it is possible to absorb MMS through the skin directly into underlying muscle. Whereas oral doses provide Cl02 gas primarily to the red blood cells, MMS that sinks through the skin provides Cl02 gas directly to the liquid plasma of the blood. More Cl02 is circulated and more rapid benefits can be expected. If you are not acquainted with the reported benefits from taking activated MMS doses, read the article: "Introduction to MMS" at _http://MMS-articles.com and also print the mixing and activation instructions at _http://MMS-instructions.com. With this bathtub strategy your full skin surface will be in contact with Cl02 gas for 20 minutes. See this list ==>

For some people this strategy represented a breakthrough. By soaking for 20 minutes in tub water laced with activated MMS, people who could not rise above a 7 drop oral solution were able to radically increase the supply of Cl02 gas to the blood stream without nausea. Rationale? Bacteria and pathogens on or below the skin level will be killed and move outward, away from the body. Most debris moves outward and floats away rather than being adrift in the blood stream. Do not neglect oral doses during your occasional tub experiences.

Pathogens removed through the internal use of MMS (as when we drink it) can only get out of the body by passing to the liver and on to elimination. This works fine until you reach the (temporary) nausea barrier. Nausea indicates that MMS is killing more pathogens than the elimination system can handle, resulting in temporary-but-serious nausea. See the 1st article at the bottom - ways to avoid nausea.

Bathing in MMS water enables cleansing of pathogens that are on the skin surface or just under it. Cleansing at these outer levels seems to avoid overloading the internal elimination systems. Pathogens killed near the skin surface more-often move outward through the skin and float away. Do continue with normal MMS oral doses, of course.

1. WIPE OUT THE TUB. Otherwise the MMS ClO2 gas in the water will go to work on any soap scum and bathtub-ring, reducing or neutralizing the Cl02 available to the body. By the second bath, the tub will be clean due to the MMS cleansing action. Put no soap or other chemicals in the water. Adding more water does not weaken the CL02 that is being generated. Some people add 1/4 cup DMSO. (Not required but it may assist deeper penetration of the Cl02 gas.)

2. ACTIVATE MMS IN A CUP OR GLASS before adding to the tub water. Place 20 drops of MMS in a cup. Add 200 drops of citric acid or lemon juice (3 tablespoons of acid). Rationale: ten parts of acid is double the normal acid amount. This causes the Cl02 gas to be released rapidly over a 20 minute period instead of a two-hour period. If you would rather sit in the tub for two hours, then 100 drops of acid would be the normal mixture ratio. If you have open skin sores or severe body wounds, you should begin by reducing the MMS drops to 16 drops so that sensations of heat or burning will be reduced. Open sores usually heal quickly due to the disinfecting action of MMS. Don't drink this mixture.

3. MIX THE MMS WITH THE ACID AND SWIRL Wait 3 minutes. While waiting, draw 5 to 10 inches of hot water for bathing. (Amount of water doesn't matter.) After the 3 minute wait, then - -

4. ADD THE ACTIVATED MMS into the tub water. Stir it. Almost immediately all germs in the water are eradicated. Some companies provide swimming pool systems that use this same strategy. Water does not reduce the amount of ClO2 gas that is being produced. Tub half full or very full doesn't matter.

5. LAY IN THE TUB. One side, then the other. Splash water onto the entire body - arms, neck, hair, face - all over. If a history of cold sores, then wipe tub water on the lips and nose repeatedly and wherever they were once visible. If water splashes in the eyes, just wipe it away. MMS doesn't harm eyes - unlike shampoo. With a cup pour tub water onto the scalp.

6. ADD MORE HOT WATER. Heat opens the pores and MMS penetrates into the muscles. Massage the scalp with tub water. By the 3rd bath, skin moles may begin to crumble.

7. WIPE AWAY TUB DEBRIS when finished.

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide

I tried it for a week or so, and had to stop. Prior to trying it, I'd spent over two months detoxing with the Sherry Rogers cocktail. I stopped taking the MMS when the FIR sauna bag arrived. I thought using the detox with the sauna and the MMS was too harsh all at once. I've decided to detox with the cocktail/dietary adjustments and sauna for a while longer before going back and using the MMS. It just makes more sense to get rid of metals etc before killing off the bugs. :)

Re: Miracle Mineral Solution-Chlorine Dioxide

I agree with Gimpy. While I went gung-ho for the first couple of months of detox, I COULD have gone easier. But I was in pretty serious bad shape.

I'm now finishing my sixth month on the diet and using the sauna. I've backed off on a lot of supplements, taking them only every few days. I'm sticking to beans, brown rice, veggies, eggs, meat, berries; using xylitol now instead of stevia because it doesn't have a nasty aftertaste; no dairy except butter (even cut out cream except for rarely); no gluten. I take magnesium soaks a couple times a week, sauna about three times a week, and things are going along very well. I have less pain than I've had in 25 years (most of the time, NO pain) and if I have to eat this way the rest of my life to avoid pain, so be it. I've had enough of it.

I actually like the diet because it takes a lot of pressure off about what to eat. You know what to eat every day. The only thing is that once in awhile you want to get creative with your ingredients. We still love the berry crumbles made with almond powder. I've made some bodacious gluten free carrot cakes with a creamy pudding topping with no dairy in it; we can have tapioca with merangue (sp?) on it, chocolate mousse, merangue cookies that are super simple to make, and have just basically come up with a whole different way of eating and thinking about food.

So, if you have the patience and aren't in some kind of critical condition, go slow and easy - it is a nice process to feel pain flowing away day by day.

Also, I have lumps that are associated with fibromyalgia... I notice that they are getting smaller.
