No Miracle, Just Wonderful Chemistry

MMS De-MystifiedThe first documentary on the subject produced and directed by Adam Abraham tags: , , , , ,

It was in August of 2007 that I had my first experience with 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 the wonderful use of chemistry. I call it wonderful because the results that using this taste bud challenging product yields, have been shown to be just that. Who can say that about cancer medication or standard medications for diabetes, stroke, or any of a long list of other medical conditions? The truth is, the results that we’re seeing from current predominant prescription medicines is atrocious. And yet, they carry on because that’s all that they know, and are “approved” to administer.

Why should their limitation be yours or mine?

I’ll say right here that MMS is not a medication for cancer, stroke, diabetes, or any other illness. It is a water disinfectant, not only outside the body, but inside as well. And while in some professional circles, there is a belief that the myriad diseases that humanity is experiencing are unrelated, the remarkable results that people are reporting after using MMS strongly suggests that a greater truth is at hand. Due to the continued growth of this phenomenon, I produced a feature length documentary on MMS. But this article has now been read over 100,000 times, and is a great place to start your education on what MMS is, and what it can mean to you.

The Basics

MMS is a chemical solution, but it is also protocol or procedure that involves precipitating a gas, 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 product and 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 two members 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 a liquid concoction often referred to as “stabilized oxygen,” which is really sodium chlorite (NaClO2), with him on such expeditions. The purpose of this solution to make local water potable. Facing the possibility of a quick loss of life, he gave it to the stricken men. To everyone’s amazement, they were both well within a few hours. That sure seemed like a miracle (as well as a huge relief), 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: 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 $12.95, 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 and necessary microorganisms, 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. You can’t have life without the chlorine ion. However, in the diatomic state, Cl2, chlorine is deadly.

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, a broad range of pathogens are electron donors. Conversely, all healthy tissue and aerobic microorganisms are unaffected by chlorine dioxide.

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, unlike chlorination, chlorine dioxide water disinfection produces no carcinogenic byproducts. Chlorine dioxide is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency in safely removing pathogens and contaminates like anthrax. It was even studied by the National Institutes of Health in 1982 and found to be safe for human consumption. No one was looking at, or for its medicinal value, so a study like that could be done and results published. Something very unlikely in this day and age.

In spite of chlorine dioxide’s effectiveness in large scale water treatment, 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 a pathogen remover that can be effectively applied inside the body.

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 lemon juice, or a 10% solution of citric acid is added. The latter two activators are recommended for people with Lyme disease. The mixing ratio is five drops of activator to every one drop of MMS (5:1).

If you are NOT using lemon or lime juice, using a 50% solution of citric acid allows you to generate chlorine dioxide using a 1:1 drop ratio of MMS and the activator. We’ll delve more into that later.

[ORIGINAL] “Applications” of chlorine dioxide range from 1 drop (with 5 drops of activator) to a maximum of 15 (with 75 drops of the activator), except in life critical situations, where the maximum may be doubled (and in some really acute cases, even more are used). A “maintenance application” is six drops, with 30 drops of activator added. After adding the activator, the chemical reaction that turns sodium chlorite into chlorine dioxide takes only about three minutes.

[October 2010 UPDATE] Today, the standard dosing of MMS has been dubbed by Jim Humble, PROTOCOL 1000. It is comprised of 3 drops of MMS (activated with 3 drops of 50% concentration of citric acid), taken hourly over an eight hour period. For very acute situations, use PROTOCOL 2000, which can begin with as little as 1/2 drop, and go as high as the individual can take without feeling worse than they already feel, each hour, for ten hours. Elevation of discomfort becomes the dosing limiter, as this indicates that the body is preparing to release already stored toxicity.

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. [UPDATE — Vinegar can be used, but is rarely called upon today as an activator.]

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.

[2010 UPDATE]

Jim Humble continued learning about chlorine dioxide, and understandings have evolved. One misunderstanding was that it acts on anything that is anaerobic by way of the negative/positive charge dynamics. He learned that there is another factor, referred to as Oxidation Potential, which is the measure of a chemical’s ability to gain, or lose electrons. Oxidation potential (also referred to as redox potential) of a given element is expressed in volts. For chlorine dioxide, that value is .95 volts. Anything that has a lower voltage than .95 will give up to 5 electrons to the chlorine dioxide molecule on contact.

By way of comparison, chlorine dioxide has a milder oxidation effect than hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which has an oxidation potential of 1.78 and collects 2 electrons, or Ozone (O3) whose oxidation potential is 2.07, and only collects 2 electrons. [Source: Lenntech Water Treatment Systems] A healthy human cell has a natural electrical of just over 1 volt, which means that it would be unaffected by chlorine dioxide, yet, it has been long known that extended use of hydrogen peroxide or ozone is damaging to healthy cells and tissue. Yet, they are used widely today.

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. [2010 UPDATE] Jim Humble has also devised a way to help this process with what he calls “MMS2”.

A Pathogen Terminator (including Swine Flu)

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 anything organic or inorganic that has an oxidation potential less than .95 volts. This means that diseased cells, as well as chemical and heavy metal deposits, 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 are low energy (meaning electrical value), 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 (HOCl), which incidentally, is another oxidizer. It is not widely publicized that hypochlorous acid is produced by the human body as part of its natural immune function. Yet, corroborating information is available if one is inclined to look.

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.

However, seeing how important hypochlorous acid production is to proper immune system function led Humble to develop MMS2, which is simply the introduction of a small amount of calcium hypchlorite Ca(ClO)2. When ingested hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is generated as the capsules dissolve.

The most salient point to know, is that chlorine dioxide has 100 times more energy to do what oxygen normally does, and yet, due to its lower voltage, does not affect healthy cells.

By the way, if you are totally healthy, there are no ill-effects from taking chlorine dioxide. However, your stores of hypochlorous acid will be increased, bolstering your immune system.

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?”

While individual results may vary, many MMS users experience anything from queasiness, to nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. 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. Indeed, what is a pathogen?

According to Wikipedia, a pathogen is:

A pathogen, (from Greek πάθος pathos “suffering, passion”, and γἰγνομαι (γεν-) gignomai (gen-) “I give birth to”) an infectious agent, or more commonly germ, is a biological agent that causes disease to its host.

I believe that we have misinterpreted what true pathogens are. So you’re about to get my opinion here. Anything that is living does so with a mandate to sustain life. Not only its life, but the life within which it exists. That mandate applies to all life forms, including all expressions of humanity. While we don’t always act as though we care about life, we are among the group that would be considered, “living.” A pathogen, in this context, would be anything that is not living. It is static, and lacks any innate intelligence or awareness of its own. In addition, these pathogens have no vibrational corollary within the genetic code. In essence, they are not in the “book” of you and me, which contains the instruction set for constructing a human body, its many systems, and components. As such, any substance that is ingested that, by design, intention, or effect, interferes with natural metabolic processes, will tend to add to dysfunction rather than improve functionality. Synthetic chemicals, drugs, heavy metals — all inorganic — would thereby be pathogens. The microorganisms that show up as a result of pathogenic inundation, are their to protect and sustain life instead of to do it harm.

Chlorine dioxide does indeed reduce pathogens, by this definition. And when the pathogens are reduced, the microorganisms that appear to have a coincidental presence, go away.

In August 2010, I interviewed a woman, C.W. Reed of New Smyrna, Florida, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, and is cancer free now, after refusing chemotherapy and radiation that her doctors were offering, and including MMS in her treatment regimen. In January 2009 a hair analysis revealed extremely high levels of heavy metal toxicity in her body. A follow-up hair analysis in May 2010 confirmed that her body was free of heavy metals. Disinfection via chlorine dioxide is clearly beneficial. (Click here to listen.)

A word of caution; chlorine dioxide can take toxins 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 road-map 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 (

What is the Normal MMS Protocol [ORIGINAL]

[ADAM’S NOTE 2010: The following is as it was originally written in 2007, with minor modifications and updates. Over the past two years Jim Humble has continued to refine MMS intake methods, as well as protocols. The methods listed below are still correct, and have helped many thousands of people. But they do not represent the current “best approach,” which will be covered immediately after.]

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 protocols for taking MMS in the Americas start 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.

2010 Updated MMS Protocols

Activator — MMS is not chlorine dioxide. MMS is an ingredient that is needed to produce chlorine dioxide in the privacy of your own home. As we stated earlier, an activator is needed, that will be used in conjunction with MMS, in order to break the chlorine dioxide from its sodium bond. In the beginning lemon or lime juice was used, which is a 10% solution of acetic acid. Therefore, Jim Humble initially suggested using a 10% of citric acid to activate. This would allow for a single description of the MMS protocol, irrespective of what was used to activate. However, using the 10% solution required that five drops of activator be used for each drop of MMS (5:1), and waiting 3 minutes before using.

In time it became very evident that using a 1:1 drop ratio is much simpler than 1:5, and that this is easily achieved by upping the “mix” of citric acid to 50% from the current 10%. In other words, making the activator 5-times more potent allows one to get the same benefit using 1/5th as much. The other benefit of this approach is that the chlorine dioxide generates MUCH faster.

Originally, you would wait three minutes while the solution turned from clear to yellow. Now, as indicated in the photo below, you’re ready to go in about 20 seconds, and the solution goes from clear to brown.


Updates in MMS Preparation
Shows difference in original and current activation methods.

Protocol 1000

Don’t ask me how he named them, but these are names for the most basic, and commonly used method of MMS intake, which will be oral. In spite of what the FDA and numerous agencies around the world have now claimed, taking chlorine dioxide in the amounts indicated here will not cause harm, but if an individual is in a toxic or chemical red zone, will bring about a disinfection that helps restore enough balance to allow the immune system to re-establish itself. Protocol 1000 is the standard oral intake method, which consists of 3 drops of MMS, activated with 3 drops of citric acid, per hour, for eight (8) hours. It should be used for 3 weeks, or until well.

The video below shows explains and demonstrates the dosing:


Protocol 2000

Protocol 2000 is for extreme health red zone cases. It calls for greater sensitivity to just how acute an individual’s situation is. If the individual has been released from the doctor’s care and told to call hospice and get their affairs in order, then Protocol 2000 is a good bet. However, instead of starting out with 3 drops, you would begin with 1/2 drop per hour, monitoring to see what effect, if any, the dosing had on how the individual feels. If they feel worse, then do not increase dosing. If they have no reaction, then go to 1 drop, etc. Unlike Protocol 1000, which is 3 drops only, Protocol 2000 will be to go up as much as is called for, using the individual’s nausea level as a limiting guide. If they begin to feel more nausea, then do not increase the drops. The other distinction of Protocol 2000, is that it goes for 10 hours/day instead of 8. Everyone needs a time to rest, and allow the body to regroup and repair itself.

Another convenience Jim Humble has suggested, is to use a drinking bottle to carry your daily MMS dose. Instead of preparing 3 drops per hour eight times, you can prepare 24 drops one time (activating with 24 drops of 50% citric acid), and add it to the water. Mark the bottle with a Sharpie to indicate the levels to drink to each hour.

Oral is NOT the Only Way to MMS

While it is natural to think of oral intake, there are many other ways to use MMS. When I produced the original documentary on MMS, oral intake was pretty much the only way that we covered. Jim Humble was, at that time, determining the effects of intravenous MMS intake. Never to be one to sit still, he has continued to expand the intake options. Here is a brief overview.

  • Topical Spray — Useful for a wide variety of situations, from burns, wounds, to infections, deodorant, and much more. The natural biocidal properties of chlorine dioxide can be invaluable in reducing the pain associated with such wounds (because it neutralizes acids, without adding to the individual’s overall chemical state. Prepare by using 10 drops of MMS per ounce of water used. For example, if you are using 2 oz of water in a spray bottle, then use 20 drops of MMS and 20 drops of 50% citric acid to activate.

  • Oral Hygiene — Great bacteria reducer (and bad breath), improved gum health.
  • Bath and Foot Soaks — Great way to bypass the GI track and get chlorine dioxide directly into the blood stream.
  • Topical Variant with DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide)
  • Inhalation — Using an humidifier or nebulizer to get small amounts into the lungs.
  • MMS Gas — Using total immersion (up to the neck) with garbage bags, or for small surface areas with a glass.
  • Enemas — Remarkable results with no concerns over taste.
  • Intravenous — Can be useful, but is complicated and definitely not conducive to self dosing.
  • Capsules — Use small gelatin capsules filled with activated MMS to take an hourly dose without any taste concerns.
  • The 6 & 6 Protocol — 6 drops MMS1 (with 6 drops 50% citric acid activator), then repeat in one hour. For colds, flu, etc. that result from a polluted inner ecology.
  • The Malaria Protocol — 16 drops & 16 drops, then repeat in one hour.

You do not have to use much MMS in order to achieve a noticeable, palpable effect.

Introducing MMS2

Everything that we have discussed thus far involves the original chemical that Jim Humble discovered that could be used to better effect in treating medical conditions. However, his discoveries didn’t stop there. As noted earlier, the body naturally produces another chemical, hypochlorous acid, as part of its immune system function. While it may be due to the pervasive influx of chemicals entering the body from sunup to sundown, or to the many other cellular stressors that we knowingly or unknowingly encounter each day, it is reasonable to surmise that a boost in hypochlorous acid might be helpful.

It was so easy to find out. Hypochlorous acid is generated by the breakdown of a small amount of calcium hypochlorite, which is available virtually everywhere as a pool water disinfectant to prevent algae growth. However, the labels are ladened with warnings against any use other than adding to pool water, where in fact, the chemical will enter the body.

MMS2 is prepared by placing a small amount of calcium hypochlorite into a size “0” gelatin capsule, swallowing and washing it down with some water.

The ‘Healtholution’ Will Not Be Televised!

Even though the standard dosing of Protocol 1000 is three drops per hour for 8 hours each day, you don’t have to begin with that. You can start at a more modest pace, for example, with 1 drop of MMS1  (using 1 drop of activator) each hour. Once you see what kind of reaction occurs (if any), you can increase the number of drops, either the next hour, or on the following day. The old 15 drop maximum, which will work, is now considered passé. THE MOST ACUTE TOXIC OVERLOAD SITUATIONS WILL WARRANT PROTOCOL 2000. Your body WILL tell you when you’ve reached the optimum dosage for you.

You should consider an intestinal cleanse before starting your MMS detoxification program.  Why? Because the more acute or “chronic” your condition, the more likely it is that you’ve got compacted fecal matter (a haven for parasites) lining the 28 foot length of your colon. Laxatives are ineffective at dissolving this stuff.

An all natural blend of oxygen and magnesium...
An all natural blend of oxygen and magnesium...

Oxy-Powder is an all-natural product, developed by Dr. Edward Group III, that comes in capsules (120 to a bottle), whose main ingredients are oxygen and magnesium. Take four capsules on an empty stomach before going to bed, and the next day you will be going to the bathroom 5-7 times. (I went more than that for awhile, so your “bathroom sitage” may vary.) Initially, the discharge from taking Oxy-Powder will be almost black. This isn’t pleasant stuff to look at, but be thankful that it’s no longer in you. It’s all what contributed to your body’s current condition. Taking this before beginning the MMS protocol will make the MMS/chlorine dioxide have to work that much less.

Fortunately, the Oxy-Powder isn’t unpleasant to take, and does the dissolving and dislodging while you sleep. You’ll know it has done its job when a dark, muddy “background” no longer accompanies your bowel movements. (Click here to order Oxy-Powder)

In general, the pathogen clearing using MMS will not be comfortable, but it need not be intolerable. The Oxy-Powder prep work should make it even smoother.

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 take out the old “garbage,” 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 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.

  2. Alissa Joy

    3 years ago, I urinated in a dirty river and I have had an infection in my bladder caused by a parasite ever since. The most effective treatments have been antiparasitics and Protocol 1000, which helps manage the symptoms, but does not cure the infection. The infection comes raging back within hours of ceasing treatment. I have to set my alarm all night long to keep an even dose of medication in my system. I am exhausted.

    I would like to use CDS administered via catheter directly to the bladder to fight this infection. But I do not know what concentration will be best.

    My naturopathic doctor believes in MMS and secretly uses it in her washington state clinic to help many patients, but she does not want to prescribe the catheters unless I have a reliable source to indicate what concentration of CDS I should use.

    I was thinking three drops of CDS in 16 ounces of IV solution. Thoughts???

    1. Dear Alissa,

      I would suggest that you consider going on a fast for at least 4 weeks. Our body doesn’t take on parasites because we pee in rivers. It takes them on when we eat processed, artificial foods with LOTS of synthetic sugar and other chemicals, and don’t give it what it actually needs to maintain our health. Drink lots of water. After a week or so, start drinking NATURAL juices; unpasteurized orange juice if it is available. It will HELP your body flush toxins out while you are on a moratorium of putting more in. You will feel hunger, but these are WITHDRAWAL reactions, as in an “addiction”… it will pass. We’re ALL accustomed to tinkering with the body, not realizing or respecting that it KNOWS what needs to be done, and HOW to do it, when we learn what it needs, and DOES NOT NEED. I don’t have to know your diet to understand that you’re taking in stuff that is causing your parasites, then blaming the infection on peeing in a river. It’s what we do. (I’ve done it too.)

      Best regards…

      1. meli

        Hey Mr. Abraham, just in response to your thoughts above, I was under the impression that while artificial and processed “foods” encourage parasites, one could get lots of unhealthy parasites from bodies of water, particularly in tropical places and not necessarily as a result of poor diet, or just from living in places where pathogens are thriving in the environment people use every day. Any additional thoughts?

  3. Dave - Australia

    Read somewhere in the comments that there isn’t enough positive testimonials around… so thought I would quickly share my experience with it. It’s nothing extraordinary, I don’t have any serious disease or anything, but since I have first hand experience with it, i thought it might be useful.

    I took MMS about 5 years ago… I never used it on a regular basis, only when I got a cold/flu, virus, or something similar. I often get cold sores on my lip and would take MMS once I felt the colds sore coming up.

    Basically, whenever I got sick, I would take about 3-5 drops. Usually after just one dose the cold/flu would be gone. So the MMS just sat in the cupboard for months on end, and I would only use it when needed. I did experience some of the symptoms described, mild stomach pains and diarrhea, for about an hour or so. Then within a few hours I would be back to normal, feeling great, and the cold/flu/coldsore would be gone.

    The final time I took it was probably a bit of stupidity on my part… I caught a really bad virus, I was feeling weak, achey, run down… basically the virus hit me pretty hard and I felt like absolute SH*T. Thinking that I would need a stronger dose for this one, I stupidly took 15 drops. (Later on I learned that 15 drops is usually given to someone with Malaria). The next 4-6 hours were spent crawling from bed to toilet (diarrhea and vomiting), back and forth several times… cold sweat and weakness, and excruciating stomach pains… after a while I just stayed in the bathroom, sprawled out on the floor feeling horrible. Eventually I managed to get back into bed and sleep, exhausted from all the fluid loss.

    The next day I woke up, and surprisingly felt fantastic. After a good breakfast and lots of water, I was feeling fresh, strong, and lively. Needless to say, the virus that was knocking me around in the few days prior was completely gone. I felt like it was never there to begin with. No lingering weakness or recovery like you usually get from a bad virus… I was just 100%.

    In all honesty, after that I couldn’t bring myself to even smell MMS again. Kind of like when you get really drunk on a certain type of spirit and then completely go off it, not being able to even imagine it again. I still think MMS is a great product, as long as it’s taken in moderation and according to instructions. I failed to do that, which is probably why I had such a reaction. Also the fact I wasn’t a regular user so my body did not have any tolerance built up probably played a factor, too.

    In the last 5 years, I have just dealt with cold/flu type situations the traditional way, ride them out and dose up on some cold/flu Pseudoephedrine tablets. Being a healthy 32 year old now, I haven’t really needed MMS, but I am considering buying it again to keep for those “just in case” type situations when something nasty comes around again.

    Hope that gives some insight to people who are considering trying it.

  4. Andrea

    Can anyone tell me why we shouldn’t do the MMS protocol if we are on blood thinners?

    1. Andrea — you might learn what blood thinners do, and the conditions that cause them to be deemed necessary by orthodox medicine. They are administered due to an ongoing buildup of plaque in the bloodstream. In this case, plaque is not a “sticky buildup” on your teeth, but along the lining of blood vessel, the vast majority of which are VERY small, some are so small that blood cells must pass through in single file.

      Understand that your blood MUST pass through ALL areas of the body, otherwise, LIFE in that section will die. So plaque is a BIG thing.

      That is the medical logic behind blood thinners, or anticoagulants. They address the problem by either inhibiting the body’s clotting response. They do not address or eliminate the reason that the plaque blockage formed in the first place. Instead, they exacerbate the problem.

      The plaque formed due to an imbalance in certain mineral in the blood, which would constitute a balanced environment, and would cause the plaque (which is calcium) to dissolve naturally and safely. Plaque is also a result of dehydration. This not only means drinking an insufficient amount of water being consumed, but also, the STATE of said water. Certain beverages, including many “energy drinks”, actually dehydrate, due to the big molecules that they are created with. Hydration only occurs within each cell, and only certain mineral combinations are taken inside, if they are in the blood. Malnourished cells mean no energy production (ATP), and a decline in health, along with the buildup of plaque.

      One of the chief minerals is magnesium, but there are others, including chloride. There are others.

      Your task is to restore mineral balance in your bloodstream by any means necessary. Cellular hydration is achieved only through the intake of energy-rich water. As you change your inner environment, plaque will go away its own. If blood thinners bring balance to your blood, then I’m all for them. However, if they do not, then you’ve got a more fundamental decision to make first than whether to use MMS.

  5. I have Chronic Lyme disease and due to blood thinner reactions to most antibiotics, nothing has worked for me. I started with 1/2 a drop the first day–took it once a day and went to one drop once a day. I am having herzheimner reactions, weakness, and lyme symptoms escalated. I also have a weak heart probably caused by the lyme as well–only half my heart works from 3 heart attacks. So I am super cautious as to what goes into my body. Jim Humble claims if you get sick, back off, but you say one almost has to get sick in order to get well. I see a lot of contradictions in both your comments and in Jim’s book which I bought –and that worries me. I am counting on this to be my last chance miracle cure.

    Please advise.

    Micki Peluso

    1. Dear Micki — Please know that there are many ways to get where you want to go. Do not place additional stress on yourself by thinking this is your “last chance.” I can’t speak to any contradictions you see in Jim’s books. If you have questions of me, please ask. However, this article was first published in 2007, and updated a couple years later. That being said, I believe that you may find the video linked here helpful. This is not about MMS. It is about something more fundamental, that I believe might help. There is plenty of reference information available, should you be interested in learning more, or going further in that direction.

    2. Hi Micki — Please realize that your body is now coping with the adverse effects of antibiotics, as well as the original condition that brought on the Lyme state itself. That original condition was/is an imbalance, or insufficiency of certain minerals in your blood… not a bite from a tick. Your body is also dehydrated, as antibiotics will tend to do that, as well as most beverages — coffee, “energy drinks”, and more — that are not water. Oftentimes, even the water we drink won’t sufficiently hydrate, given the chemicals they are treated with, and the normal degradation of their energy state during the journey to our homes. I would suggest that you read one or more books by Dr. George W. Carey, including “Wonders of the Human Body” and “God-Man: The Word Made Flesh.” They are available as books, and free downloads. I would also suggest that you look into the work of Rene Quinton, who helped thousands of people heal using Marine Plasma (sea water) to great effect.

    3. Sam Mukherjee

      I agree, find some contradictions. In the part that describes the chemical part there are contradictions too. Describes it as electron donor and acceptor almost in the same sentence. I would expect a little more in-depth chemical explanation using modern reaction mechanisms. No clear description of what happens to the residual product in the body. Just saying it does not exist anymore does not make scientific sense. Moreover I would like to know the reactions if any at the kidney. Any clinical tests done specifically on that?

  6. Martin

    I can see some good arguments for and against MMS and must admit the lack of people posting their positive experiences for the world to see isn’t helping. Though not a scientist myself i am able to understand the basics so i am sold on the science of it. I have tried it and did experience vomiting etc but that’s because i started off using too much too soon. I reduced the dosage on my second try and had no problems. I’m trying to rid myself of Genital Herpes and am glad there’s something out there that may help that’s all i ask. If it doesn’t work at least i tried riding myself of this invader. Not sure if its gone yet and musy admit i haven’t used it for the length of time specified but no break outs yet. It’s difficult to stick to it because of the eating issue and also it makes you smell and i have to be around lots of people often during the week. I’m not against MMS at all but why is it so difficult to find the floods of positive testimonials out there that there should be if it is curing people just a couple of forums with just a few posts dating back some years ago now. I understand some people wouldn’t want the world knowing they had a disease but surely there should be still quite a few who still come forward for instance on Youtube. Its one of the major things i am concerned about.

    1. Martin,

      Perhaps you haven’t seen positive experiences posted, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t to be found. Millions of people have used MMS, with positive results since this article was first published, in 2007. However, a new way of looking at “disease” is needed. You say that you’re trying to get rid of genital herpes, which is a viral condition. It is also evidence of an environmental condition. The virus exists because the environment in your genital area is conducive for it; an imbalance of some kind exists. Medical practice today would attempt to kill the virus. However, their medications put the environment further out of balance. It may succeed in removing evidence of the herpes, but succeed in making the environment conducive to microorganisms that can exist with even less oxygen, for example. This is actually a good thing for you and me, because if microorganisms that can survive in oxygen deficient environments inside your body didn’t exist, we’d die off right away.

      When you understand this, you’re free to use whatever means that are convenient to you to restore balance to the environment, not worrying about one virus, and know that once you do, your body will take care of itself.

      ‘’I’m not against MMS at all but why is it so difficult to find the floods of positive testimonials out there that there should be if it is curing people just a couple of forums with just a few posts dating back some years ago now”

      I think you know the anwer to that.

      Even on Jim Humble’s own Forum there is scarce evidence that anyone is being cured with MMS. And the few claims that there are saying they were helped are nothing more than weak testamonials all anecdotal. MMS has been around for decades now. If it were true that people were being cured of varying diseases people would be posting objective proof, like before and after lab results. By now certainly enough people would have told their own doctors about this cure. It would be pretty hard to ignore. And please don’t tell me doctors want their patients to stay sick so they can profit off them. That’s just twisted. That kind of cynicism can only be found amongst snake oil sale men and charatans.

      Also you should know that just because you haven’t had an outbreak since using MMS, it doesn’t mean you are cured. Some people only have one outbreak when first infected, then never again. This doesn’t mean the virus is gone. It simply means the virus is dormant.

      1. After 7 years of living with debliitating chronic Lyme disease and using several protocols, including antibiotics, I am finally cured in full of Lyme disease thanks to MMS! I own and moderate a large Lyme group, I coach other Lymies using MMS and some members are cured of Lyme and others are in their own respective levels of improvements thanks to MMS!! To this very day, I still use a “maintenance dose” daily to keep my body clear of pathogens and poisons and I brush my teeth daily with MMS, never use toothpaste anymore, no dental issues for the past 7 years of brushing with MMS.. And I will use MMS until I am no longer on this earth! My greatest respect to Jim Humble who founded MMS, his team and to AA (philosopher) for getting the word out about MMS early on!

        When I first read about MMS, that it produced Chlorine Dioxide, read all I could about it, I came way realizing this was the one thing that really could cure chronic Lyme Disease, most other things can’t… I started using it and never stopped… And because I pursued this course, many on my group are also benefiting from this unique health tonic. ~ JimJax

    I am looking for a help for my uncle. he had been diagnosed with cancer (colon) and metastases 2 months ago. His age is 56. But there are few test have been made and they found present of Echinococcus granulossus parasite in his body with cysts on his liver. The doctors recommend him the chemotherapy but he decided to try mms solution. He did start to take a CDS2 every hour 5ml 7x and combination with mms1 3 drops every hour. He was doing ok for a few days but today he got huge inflated stiff belly and we dnt know what to do with him. He feel pain and its very uncomfortable. The doctors doesnt wanna help him because of his diagnose so I need a help. Could you recommend me what to do? why the belly got so huge and how to help him. Thank you very much.

      Hello Monika,

      Although I’m am an advocate of MMS and I still have some in my refrigerator,
      I haven’t used any in several years.

      This reply is about other choices you may want look into.

      Dr Mark Sircus has a practice in Brazil who has written MANY
      books on natural allopathic medicine. He had one foot in the grave
      earlier this year, pushing himself to 14-hour days, seven days a week.

      He has many protocols and therapies that are inexpensive.

      Read this article and you’ll see what I mean.

    Hello Jim!

    Do you have any scientific paper that demonstrates the positive effect of MMS? I have tried to find out on the Internet but cant find anything. Maybe some papers have been written after the 100,000 people experience or on the clinical trial in Malawi prison. Thanks for sharing or indicating the link on the internet. Cheers! Have a good day! =)

      1. None of these links you have provided are to clinical trials of MMS. These are studies done on chlorine dioxide used as antiseptics, used topically on the skin and other surfaces. The others were testing the use of chlorine dioxide for use in water treatment and on surfaces as an disinfectant. They tested it’s effectiveness in killing polio virus on surfaces. The other link is to a study done on rats. They gave the rats chlorine dioxide gas to inhale, and studied the toxic effects on the rats.

        The important thing to know is that NONE of these links were to a study where MMS /chlorine dioxide was given to humans INTERNALLY at the dose you and Jim Humble are telling people to drink it at.

        You won’t find any peer reviewed studies that test the efficacy of giving chlorine dioxide/MMS internally to humans because it is considered a poison and should not be ingested .

      2. Susang:
        The ORIGINAL question for this was, “Do you have any scientific paper that demonstrates the positive effect of MMS?” … NOT for Clinical trials of MMS.

        You have to be pretty ignorant to think that the FDA, or doctors would fund a study on taking Chlorine Dioxide/MMS …. they aren’t interested. Get real !

        These studies I posted show that Chlorine Dioxide (activated MMS) is SAFE for humans to take for recovery from a severe illness…. also that it destroys biofilm.

        To call Chlorine Dioxide (CD) a poison shows your complete ignorance of the subject.

        We both know you are a Pharma troll, and even IF a doctor OR the FDA gave you undisputed evidence for CD, …it wouldn’t matter…. cause your main purpose for being on here is spread negativity about CD….

        Go elsewhere !!!

      3. susang

        I think it was clear he was asking about MMS and it’s use in treating humans by this remark he made: “Maybe some papers have been written after the 100,000 people experience or on the clinical trial in Malawi prison.”

        The fact is, and you know it, there aren’t any studies or peer reviewed papers that have been done on the use of MMS given INTERNALLY to treat disease in humans. Every time one of you people who push the use of chlorine dioxide quote or link to an article or scientific paper on chlorine dioxide, the amount people are subjected to, like for water purification, are NO WHERE NEAR the ppm that is used for water treatment.

        You make the ridiculous claim that the reason there aren’t any published studies is because the powers that be, FDA etc. won’t allow it. Here are just a few reasons why this is preposterous. Firstly, MMS has been around for quite a while. It would not have been that difficult to gather some patients and do even a small preliminary study.If it were so effective in curing all of the things that the people who sell it claim, the pharms would be all over it! Anything can be tweaked, altered slightly, synthesized and made into different types of delivery systems. All of this can be patented and money can be made off of it.
        No one has ever even come close to doing anything like this with MMS.

        Secondly, if MMS were REALLY doing things like curing cancer, AIDS, Malaria, internal infections etc. by now it should be all over the Internet, on the news, and in countries where health care is free their governments would be rejoicing over the money saved on health care!

        Not only has none of this happened, but if one goes to Jim Humble’s Church forum where MMN users can ask questions and describe their success or LACK of success with MMS. I’m not seeing the flood of success stories one would expect if it really worked. As far as the serious conditions like cancer I’m not seeing anything but failure.

        For the record on literally every industrial chemical web site chlorine dioxide is listed as a poison. I am not a pharma troll. I am only interested in presenting the truth. Like your comment that chlorine dioxide isn’t a poison. You are making money off this scam. So your agenda is far more questionable than mine. I’m not profiting in any way. My reasons are far more personal. I had a friend who was diagnosed with cancer. I watched him fall victim to charlatans just like Humble and the guy who runs this blog. This quack pushed his snake oil along with false hope.

        There are so many scientific facts that are flat out false in this bloggers description of how MMS supposedly works. I hope people at the very fact check what this guy is telling them before they ingest something that could do them harm.

    Could you please explain to me how a strong oxidizing agent miraculously only oxidise pathogenic entities? The reason we need vitamin C, E, A and various other nutrients is for their anti-oxidant effects ie they neutralise oxidizing agents in our systems, and prolong cell life. To my knowledge, chemicals do not make decisions. They will react with the best oxidizing/reducung agent to hand- and it’s *relative*- that is, if there is *anything* else even vaguely reactive around, whether oxidising (basic) or reducing (acidic) by comparison, s*** will happen. That – surely- includes any biochemical, “pathogenic” or not? This is a serious question- I’d really like to know what your response is.

    1. There’s no “miracle” about it. Every particle, mineral, or compound, no matter how simple or complex, has a natural charge state, or polarity. It’s a “plus” (+) or a “minus” (-). By your question, it’s obvious that you already know this. The polarity factor doesn’t stop. As a new compound is formed, its charge state defines its activity or reactivity with other compounds. When NaClO2 is combined with a light acid, the ClO2 species with a (-) charge results, along with NaCl. Anything that has a positive charge will be oxidized, whereas that which is likewise negatively charged, will not be.

      1. Alex

        Yes- but a couple of probs here:

        Not all particles/molecules etc have a charge- some are neutral in charge, but still reactive. Some are neutral and inert. Polarity is *definitely* not universal to all molecules- polarity is a very specific property, and does not have any relationship to overall charge in the majority of cases. The prime example is water (H2O)- it’s a neutral molecule, but is extremely polar, due to the tendency for Oxygen to “pull” electrons into it’s orbit more strongly/frequently, even though they are shared with Hydrogen. Reiterating- polarity is nothing to do with overall charge on the ion, and is definitely not a property of all chemical species.

        The kind of reaction you are talking about with MMS sounds like a free radical reaction. To save time- a quote from the Australian Research Council: “Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons. In their quest to find another electron, they are very reactive and can cause damage to surrounding molecules… radicals are also useful because they help important reactions in our bodies take place ” (unpaired electrons, btw, can occur on molecules with a negative charge, AND with a neutral charge, just for clarity’s sake- sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true).

        I am not saying this treatment cannot help anything, and I am particularly impressed with the short bits I have seen re: Malaria, but like many medicines I am almost *certain* it has the capacity to cause damage, and probably reasonably extensive damage- most of which would be undetectable in the immediate sense. Like other free radical damage, say from air pollution or smoking- you generally know about it years later. When you get cancer, for example :S To be treated with respect, and huge caution I would think.

  10. As an ND I am very interested in mms!
