Preface to MMS Article

My essay on
MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution), which I will publish
later today, will probably not be one of my most popular, but it
is a necessary one that I have been delaying since Dr. Gabriela
published her article on the subject of MMS about a year
I think it’s a most important topic, so much so that I have
been using myself as a guinea pig, but using it only transdermally. I cannot possibly ever imagine swallowing it.
I have some professional associates who do recommend the oral
use of MMS and to them I would say please read my MMS essay
carefully, because the contraindications need to be known about
any substance, even those that are vastly safer to use like
magnesium chloride and sodium bicarbonate.
I want to make it very clear that I am against medical
fragmentation and favor a protocol approach to the treatment of
disease. Thus the propaganda that commercially oriented people
and health sites put out about the use and efficacy of a single
substance for the treatment of disease is often highly
The proponents of MMS are some of the worst
offenders in this regard since they only know how to talk about
MMS but not anything else that is important for people’s
Last week I reviewed two videos, one on the use of
and the other on THC laden hemp oil (below video) for the treatment of cancer.
Both, I would say, are vastly superior medicinal substances than
MMS for the treatment of cancer.
Practicing health care
practitioners should have both Black Salve and hemp oil in their
dispensaries. Unfortunately hemp oil is illegal, but Black Salve
can be purchased for animals and can also be made at home quite
It seems clear that the Black Salve is highly effective though
somewhat painful to use.
Hemp oil is gentler but if you actually
stand up and shout that you are using the Black Salve for the
treatment of cancer and sell it, the FDA will draw and quarter
you or come down after you in South America like they did
Greg Caton of Alpha Omega Labs who they literally dragged back to the
states and into prison.
Combined together one has the beginning
of a potent cancer killing protocol.
...and we have something
western doctors just cannot get their minds to understand.
When we use a protocol with the above substances we catch cancer
cells in a hellish crossfire - a murderous all out assault on
cancerous conditions. MMS does not make it in my Natural
Allopathic protocol because of its toxicity.
In sharing about cancer treatments with Dr. George Georgiou, the
naturopathic researcher from Cyprus who developed HMD (Heavy
Metal Detox), he shared with me his clinical protocol:
DA VINCI HOLISTIC HEALTH
CENTERS CANCER PROTOCOL
It is important to determine the causative factors behind each
case of cancer as this is the first thing that needs to be
IDEL Diagnostic Program has been designed
specifically for doing this. Once the causative factors have
been identified, then there are many treatment choices to choose
from, but this varies from patient to patient.
Some of these
treatments would include:
the Cesium high pH mineral protocol
- this is probably the most
powerful protocol for metastatic cancers, and can be combined
the Budwig diet
detoxification on many levels, whole
body, liver and gallbladder, parasites and more
PAPIMI pulsing electromagnetic
Regeneration Therapy (MRT)
Microcurrents for lymphatic
This is the premise of the
Vinci Cancer Protocol - aggressive and powerful - there is not
one product that can do all this!
He uses many of the usual supplements:
magnesium, systemic enzymes, various colloidal minerals,
including cesium chloride, POLYMVA, a patented palladium, Lipoic
acid complex, neutraceuticals, herbal formulas and more.
In a future essay I will also be
reviewing the work of Dr.
Shade who has developed a most fascinating and complete protocol
for heavy metal chelation.
I talked to him on the phone and was
in awe of his knowledge and how easily he could express the most
complex concepts about detoxification pathways and the enzymes
that run them. When one runs into a genius one has to sit up and
Tomorrow’s MMS essay (below report) is long, even by my standards. It is a
delicate subject but I take my gloves off and go 15 rounds to
deal with the level of religious fervor that is caught up with
Below is a radio show I did recently about a protocol for the
Gulf Toxicity Syndrome that the federal government has swept
under the carpet.
The truth is that
MMS is a dangerous poison, and as such it
has no business whatsoever in the alternative health arena.
Dr. Gabriela Segura
Magical or not it’s
Miracle Mineral Supplement or the master
No matter what it’s
called one does have to be careful when using a substance like MMS.
And whether its main proponent Jim Humble is going out of his mind
or not we have to be clear about what this substance can do safely
and what it cannot.
I say out of his mind
for now he has invented, out of the pocket of his imagination, the
new profession titled “Doctor of MMS”, which anyone can become.
afford the training of less than two weeks, or buy the new book,
'The Master Mineral of the Third Millennium'. In an email he
recently said, “We thought you might like to see the difference
in a MMS doctor and a Medical doctor.”
As Jim has become
increasingly embarrassing to the health field I have personally
eaten some of my words on the value of this chlorine-type of
substance as I have been carefully experimenting with it on
In fact, if the truth be
known, I am finding out there may be some possible benefits to it
but would never take this supplement orally for anything since there
are so many better and safer ways to accomplish what Humble claims
MMS can do.
I am using it transdermally, mixed with malic acid and DMSO to try
to control a fungus infection between my toes. In the end I might
conclude I am a bit out of my mind myself for sometimes just the
fumes irritates my eyes and I do think I would vomit if I drank
some, which would be a typical reaction to drinking a poison.
Just thinking about
drinking it makes me nauseous.
No matter how much can
be said for its anti-pathogen action, so far it only controls my
fungus but does not eradicate it even though I have been using it
for several months.
Many people do not know
that MMS is essentially
bleach. It’s very effective for killing bacteria in
toilets, but you certainly shouldn’t be swallowing it.
Dr. Gabriela Segura
Almost five years ago I
wrote in my
Survival Medicine for the 21st Century
There has been a lot
of commotion in health circles about a product called Miracle
Mineral Supplement (MMS). It is being advertised as the answer
to AIDS, hepatitis A, B and C, malaria, herpes, TB, most cancer
and many more of mankind’s worst diseases.
The claim about how
the chlorine (a poison that would not be considered a mineral
for health) interacts with pathogens is the same claim we can
iodine (a safe nutritional mineral), which is known
to also kill pathogens of all types on contact. Iodine is not
normally thought to have this action when taken internally but
in high enough doses it does.
I personally know of
a missionary in Africa who uses iodine instead of MMS to treat
Most people I have given

very aggressively and have to stop taking it.
Dr. George Georgiou
Chlorine dioxide is
formed from the chemical combination of sodium chlorite and acetic
acid (vinegar) or citric acid.
Chlorine dioxide is
dangerous to handle and use. After searching for and reviewing
material safety data sheets I am convinced of the risk of using this
substance. Now whenever someone mentions MMS I recommend iodine
Patricia Springstead, RN says,
“The historical fact
of MMS is that when activated it becomes what is equal to pool
shock, to shocking bacteria, fungus and other pathogens from
swimming water. In its dry state, MMS is sodium chlorite. When
activated with citrus or vinegar, it becomes sodium dioxide.”
According to Springstead,
MMS side effects include:

injury and burns.
harmful if inhaled; coughing,

may occur resulting in chronic bronchitis and permanent lung
damage with chronic exposure.
In July 2010, the FDA
issued a warning  about Miracle Mineral Supplement
“Consumers who have
MMS should stop using it immediately and throw it away.”
MMS was then rebranded
with the new name, “Advanced Oxygen Therapy.” Since then, the
product’s salesmen have continued pushing their concoction onto some
of the world’s most desperate and hopeless populations.
Sylvia Fink, a Mexican
woman visiting Epi Island with her husband in a Least Developed
Country, Vanuatu, a South Pacific Island nation,
died 12 hours after ingesting MMS.
“From almost the
moment Silvie drank the mixture of MMS and lime juice - which
she’d brewed up according to the instructions of Jim Humble, the
principal proponent of the stuff - things went wrong.
nauseated, and was soon both vomiting and suffering from
But since the MMS
literature emphasized that this was a normal reaction, she
assumed it would pass. It didn’t. It turned into a day of
torture, with Silvie gradually getting worse, to the point of
having severe abdominal pains, then urinary pains. I helped her
all day, bathing her, comforting her and trying to get liquids
into her. But she couldn’t keep anything down.
About the time it
started to get dark, she began to feel faint.
That’s when I became
fully alarmed. She fell into a coma while I was on the VHF
calling for assistance. With her unresponsive, I put out another
radio call, this time for immediate emergency care. Fellow
cruisers rushed to our boat within minutes. For over an hour we
administered CPR and oxygen.
But neither they nor
an adrenalin shot administered by a physician from the village
were able to revive her. Sylvie died aboard Windcastle around 9
p.m., just 12 hours after she’d taken that fatal drink of MMS.”
Methemoglobin found in
the blood was at a “significantly high” level according to Ms.
Fink’s autopsy report.
basically results in the inability of blood to carry oxygen
within the body causing cyanosis (lack of oxygen to the system).
The [autopsy] report states that if the 45 percent saturation
reading was accurate and existed at the time of death, then the
symptoms could be consistent with being caused by
methemoglobinemia and therefore a possible cause of death.
Most cases of
methemoglobinemia are caused by exposure to drugs or toxic
substances  including chlorate and chlorite.”
Dr. Segura, who
is a heart surgeon with extensive experience and interest in
alternative health, research, psychology and the human condition,
would agree with this diagnosis,
“The popularity of
MMS and its fervent, almost religious marketing involved the
claim of curing malaria in tens if not hundreds of thousands of
Sounds very noble indeed, but this is only natural as
MMS’ sodium chlorite is well known to cause hemolysis in red
blood cells - meaning that red blood cells are ruptured and
destroyed. It is actually by
killing red blood cells that the malaria parasite is killed
since it invades red blood cells. MMS probably kills the
parasite and the red blood cells.
In fact, MMS consumers may
Jim Humble has
explained to a reporter friend of mine, Debra Dupré, that MMS
is the only answer for people in the Gulf of Mexico region to
survive the oil spill disaster and that the possibility exists for
people with MMS to visit every home there, with help of his “church
In an email on January
16, Humble wrote,
“MMS is the only
real answer all those people of the gulf have. It is cheap and
it will detoxify their bodies. It is the greatest detoxifier for
human bodies known at this time as I have observed thousands who
have used it.”
Ever since first reading
Humble’s book I have gotten used to his use of thousands upon
thousands of testimonials that spill with ease out of his mouth and
unfortunately people do swallow his word hook, line and sinker.
ingredient in MMS is not a mineral, but chlorine dioxide
(oxygenated chlorine), which is formed from the chemical
combination of sodium chlorite and acetic acid (vinegar) or
MMS as a poison does kill intrusive germs in your
body, but it would be naïve to believe it to be carefully
selective in what it kills and destroys, or to think that the
damage done has only limited consequences.
It is shocking that
MMS is recommended so widely, that it is recommended to already
weakened individuals AND that it is recommended for long-term
use. In truth, the potential long-term and dangerous side
effects of regular MMS use should give anyone the shivers,”
writes Dr. Gabriela Segura.
My assistant Claudia
French has been following the exploits of Jim Humble for years and
has said that he changes his protocol like a slippery fish.
Dr. Segura, speaking
about his original protocol for what is now known as MMS1, said that
his original protocol “suggests that taking up to 60 drops per day"
is within reason. There are 20 drops in one gram, which means that
the protocol may call for the ingestion of 3 grams or more of what
amounts to household bleach.
This is three times the
amount required to produce nausea and vomiting and 20 percent of the
amount required to kill you. Even though we are told that nausea and
diarrhea are positive signs of detoxification when following the MMS
protocol, you can be sure that that’s actually the way our body
tells us we’ve just been poisoned.
If you happen to vomit,
then be reassured that it might have saved your life by way of
avoiding a lethal overdose of MMS.”
Dr. Segura says,
“MMS2 is basically
calcium hypochlorite, which is a chemical compound widely used
for water treatment and as a bleaching and disinfecting agent
This one is indeed a mineral because it has
calcium in it, but a mineral that reacts to produce hypochlorous
acid when ingested.
Hypochlorous acid (HOCl),
which is a combination of hydrogen, oxygen, and chlorine, is
what some of our white blood cells produce in order to kill
bacteria through the well-known process called oxidation.”
The human body produces
it to fight infection.
White blood cells
release this natural oxidant to fight invading pathogens. The
hypochlorous acid produced by the human body’s immune system is done
so in minute quantities because the acid holds danger for normal
cells as well as the pathogens.
The researchers said the human immune system produces hypochlorous
acid in response to infection but the substance does not kill only
the bacterial invaders. It kills human cells too, which may explain
how tissue is destroyed in chronic inflammation. Knox et al. first
noted that HClO is a sulfhydryl inhibitor that, in sufficient
quantity, could completely inactivate proteins containing sulfhydryl
This is because HClO
oxidizes sulfhydryl groups, leading to the formation of disulfide
bonds that can result in crosslinking of proteins.
The HClO mechanism of
sulfhydryl oxidation is similar to that of chloramine, and may only
be bacteriostatic, because, once the residual chlorine is
dissipated, some sulfhydryl function can be restored. Hypochlorous
acid reacts readily with amino acids that have amino group
side-chains, with the chlorine from HClO displacing a hydrogen,
resulting in an organic chloramine.
Dr. Segura says,
“The amount of HOCl
that our body is already capable of producing on its own is
dangerous enough. In fact, some of our white blood cells have
toxic and damaging effects on our DNA through the formation of

Jim Humble claims that,
“The answer to AIDS,
hepatitis A, B and C, malaria, herpes, TB, most cancer and many
more of mankind’s worst diseases has been found. Many diseases
are now easily controlled. More than 75,000 disease victims have
been included in the field tests in Africa. Scientific clinical
trials have been conducted in a prison in the country of Malawi,
conducted by the Malawi government produced identical 99% cure
results. Over 60% of the AIDS victims that were treated in
Uganda were well in 3 days, with 98% well within one month. More
than 90% of the malaria victims were well in 4 to 8 hours.
Dozens of other diseases were successfully treated and can be
controlled with this new mineral supplement.
It also works with
colds, flu, pneumonia, sore throats, warts, mouth sores, and
even abscessed teeth.”
Dr. David Kroll,
a natural products cancer pharmacology professor, says,
“The product website
is full of the most unreal claims I’ve seen in any online
And this is the main
point to look at when reading Humble’s book or site.

a video, Mr. Humble relates the
story of a man who “chug-a-lugged” two ounces of MMS because he had
mistaken it for a glass of water. Mr. Humble says that the man
became very ill. His kidneys stopped working and he had to go on
dialysis. He was hospitalized for several weeks.
Mr. Humble says that
people should know that if they get extremely sick after taking MMS,
“they need to go to
the hospital because the kidneys will quit working.”
Taking vitamin C, an
antioxidant, is also discouraged as it neutralizes the effects of
this strong oxidant MMS.
Jonathan Campbell tells us that
because CLO2 is a chemical oxidizer (called a “free
radical”) it depletes vitamin C and causes oxidative stress. Putting it another way,
the vitamin C and other antioxidants in our body get depleted in
their attempts to detoxify CLO2; vitamin C and other
antioxidants are our “free radical scavengers.”
provided with MMS specifically warn people not to take vitamin C
while they are taking MMS because vitamin C “interferes” with it.
This is a red flag that
MMS is a toxic chemical, since vitamin C is our primary
detoxification agent. Vitamin C depletion is extremely dangerous: it
is the bulwark of our immune system, and it is needed for dozens of
other body functions.
Jonathan Campbell, health
“The entire approach
of Jim Humble is to treat the human body as if it were a simple
plumbing system, and MMS is akin to Drano, chemically killing
pathogens. But the human body does not work that way. Your body
does not need toxic chemicals from a factory to kill pathogens.
properly, your body has the capability to fight literally any
pathogen or illness. A healthy immune system automatically and
selectively targets pathogens with an array of antibodies and
white blood cells.
MMS disrupts this
natural immunity by depleting immune-building antioxidants."
MMS is the wrong
immunity - it is chemotherapy!
MMS is dangerous, even
Humble admits that.
I am not saying in this
essay that MMS cannot be used for certain situations when used
transdermally. I even know a doctor in South Africa who safely uses
it in her IV cocktail but it is implemented under strict supervision
and monitoring like most dangerous drugs needs to be. Doctors often
try extreme methods when a patient’s life is on the line, when there
is little or nothing to lose.
“Bishop” Humble is really doing a huge disservice to the alternative
medical field. He is making all of it seem more unbelievable not to
mention the disservice he is doing to religious orders. There is the
ancient tradition of pastoral medicine but it has nothing to do with
“Jonestown” and the drinking of poisons.
I never thought I would
be on the same side of the fence as the FDA but on the question of
MMS I certainly am.
What follows is a testimonial of the reactions Graham from Spain had
when he began taking the MMS - he has basal cell carcinoma on
different areas of his face and back.
I began this protocol -
following the mixing instructions carefully - after having been on
the high mineral protocol for several days.
The mixture felt highly
toxic and reminded me of cellulose - acetona. At the 1 drop X 5 all
was well with no side effects. Increasing over 3 days to 3 X 15
drops similarly resulted in no problems apart from a reduced
When I increased to 4 x
20, all hell let loose within about an hour! I suffered severe
diarrhea and purging for the entire day, with stomach ache,
headache, nausea, sinus pain and nose running along with
disorientation and sight disturbances. I had to lay down near the
bathroom the entire day. By evening, all these symptoms had settled
and I was able to eat a little and sleep.
The following day after
breakfast I took the same dosage, expecting a lesser effect, but it
was an exact repeat for the entire day. I even tried one more day at
this 4 x 20, believing that I would get over this hump and reap the
benefits, but it was no different. (Masochist or what!)
discontinued the MMS protocol and continue with the high mineral
intake. One further interesting effect is that I am left with a
revulsion to certain foods that I used to crave!
I am not convinced this
was a healing crisis caused by the detox effect and die off. It
seemed more to me like a reaction to a toxic substance. I used to be
very sensitive to the smell of paint and thinners as well as certain
dust - like cement dust etc. - which in the past has caused a
similar effect. The effects the MMS created were more like that than
of a detox taking place.
Such smells have not
bothered me since I began taking HMD around 5 years ago.
This was also the first
headache I have had in that time, having previously suffered
overlapping headaches and migraines for over 40 years.
My doctor put me on a special
mineral increase due to lack of iron, copper and magnesium in my
I followed “the book”
and did not tell him I use MMS. Now I have to do a stint in the
hospital because my counts are worse than ever when they were
supposed to improve. My doctor took a urine test (which has been
orangeish) and he said the tests show that something is absorbing or
disrupting the minerals and not letting them get into my blood where
they are needed.
Six hours between MMS
and the mineral pills and cap. Could MMS be causing this?
I am worried that
because I did not tell my doctor as the book says, and others here
give that same advice, that the hospital will be looking for reasons
and doing tests on me unnecessarily. I feel I should take my MMS
with me to the hospital and tell them but Jim (Humble) say’s don’t
tell doctors because they don’t understand. So I’m confused.
My readings only went
down since taking MMS and I do as they say here 15 drops 3 times a
day with citric acid 75 drops in lemon juice for taste. I have lost
8 kilos since starting and constantly suffer D (diarrhea) and
nausea. But my doctor says I will not like how and what they will
have to suppository as what I take orally is having no effect and
they need to find out why.
They think I have a
gastrointestinal disease that leads to significant mal-absorption
and will need to see a biophysicist. Any advice will help as I go to
hospital at Queenstown on the south island Tuesday. My MMS comes
from MMS pacific.
The teaspoon I use to
mix it with is rusted after 12 weeks - is this normal also?
The MMS lowered my viral load, but it seriously messed up my lab
My RBC, BUN, EGFR, CO2,
Protein (globulin), bilirubin, ALT, AST, platelets, lymphs and
cholesterol all went out of range on MMS, in about 6 weeks of taking
I came to some conclusions about MMS because of my labs and
tried to discuss it with Jim Humble; he was not so humble, he got
angry with me and told me my results were invalid because I got sick
several times. I think the explosions kill red blood cells as they
are in close contact with the MMS.
It lowered my platelets,
cholesterol, protein, RBC, BUN and EGFR and raised the rest.
 Most cases of methemoglobinemia are due to excessive
production of methemoglobin following exposure to oxidant
drugs, chemicals, or toxins.
