I know what some people are going to say.... not another snake oil thread. But I ask first and foremost that people keep an open mind to peoples
experiences and opinions on this topic. For those who are unfamiliar with what MMS is I will try to explain what I have learned on the topic. MMS is
short for Miracle Mineral Supplement, probably the worst possible acronym to give it credibility. Let me begin by first answering some questions on
why I am creating this thread and starting to take it.
Why would I take MMS?
I am not a beacon of health, but I don't have any any major medical problems. I'm pretty sure of this since I was lucky enough to have been involved
in a study by the government to be tested for different toxins and general health assessment which came back with good results. I do though have
family and fiends that have conditions that are debilitating enough to cause undue stress in their lives, and left untreated(or treated by Pharma
symptom suppressors) could shorten their lives dramatically.
For this reason when I heard about Chlorine Dioxide I started looking for any information available on the topic along with it's side effects. After
finding that their have been quite the positive results from this I decided to try it on myself to see if it had any credibility. If it does I could
recommend it to those I know that have medical issues and hopefully return some level of normality to their lives.
Do I think Chlorine Dioxide is perfectly safe with no side effects?
With 100% certainty on this.....NO. Adding any foreign chemical to your body has side effects, but from what I have learned on the subject it seems to
offer more benefits than it does drawbacks. With so many modern chemicals being added into our foods and hygiene products I figured it would probably
take something extra to help clean the non-normal substances out of your body.
I do however know that there are no known long term side effects as of yet due to the short time frame that people have been taking this chemical.
This is one of my areas for concern, but again this is why I am trying to find out if the benefits are worth the risk.
What is Chlorine Dioxide?
Chlorine dioxide is a yellow to reddish-yellow manufactured gas. It does not occur naturally in the environment. When added to water, chlorine dioxide
forms chlorite ion, which is also a very reactive chemical. Chlorine dioxide is currently used in water treatment, bleaching of textiles and paper(It
will bleach the object, but have no negative effect on the fibers strength or integrity.), as well as used in packaging of food to prevent bacteria
infections(such as cheese and meats). In higher concentrations it is used to disinfect food processing equipment; no rinsing is required since it
breaks down to harmless substances.
The science behind Chlorine Dioxide is unquestionable.. it kills pathogens while leaving most oxygen using cells intact. The concern comes in high
dosages used in the popular treatment and its possible side effects on the human body.
Why would this help me?How would I know if t is helping me?
Like I said earlier... I'm not a beacon of health. I do smoke and try to eat healthy(at times).
I have problems with my ankle ever since I broke
my heal and seemed like it would be a good indicator. Especially since it's been bothering me lately.
What have I changed other than taking MMS?
Nothing..... I continue all by bad habits as per normal so my results will not be skewed. I don't take meds for anything.... I try not to take any
meds where possible.
Do I feel like it will work?
Initially I had major concerns on the matter and the belief that it would work.... Stupidity comes to mind the first time I took it... But, I decided
to go through with it regardless of my concerns. As of day 6 I am still not convinced of its effectiveness but I have definitely notice differences in
What have I noticed so far?
So far I am on day 6 taking 8 drops as per the mixing instructions. I have so far noticed the following changes in my health.
-runny nose(from day 2 on) minor
-stomach - is on a roller coaster ride. Nothing painful, just churning a lot. Eating about an hour after taking it usually calms it completely.
-Sleeping- first night was not great(mostly nerves second guessing taking the stuff) from the 3 day on sleeping has changed
- seem to be dreaming more(since I am remembering more I guess)
- getting a better nights sleep(waking up before the alarm goes off wide awake, and I usually only get 6-7 hours on average)
- Sleeping lighter... I wake up easier in the night, not a bad thing.
-Being a smoker for many years my breathing isn't bad, but after about day 4 my breathing is much deeper and clearer. I never expected breathing to
be easier, but it is and is quite nice.
-My foot has definitely improved. On the second day the stinging joint started to go away, and has improved since. I can still feel that it's not
100% by any means, but the little it has done has been good so far.
-My mind- seems to be much clearer, but it seems to be groggy at times. This is one of the areas that I will put most of my attention in. If any major
negative reactions are to happen, it would be my guess to be in the brain. If I notice anything majorly negative happening in my memory I will stop
taking it immediately. Also to note, I do play FPS and Strategy games and have noticed no major differences in my reaction times or on strategics( I
know, not very scientific, but it'll have to do)
I hope to get anyone's feedback if they have/are trying MMS and what they have noticed. I DO NOT ENDORSE USING MMS, I am simply trying to see if it
has possible benefits to ones health. I will continue using it and making note of anything mentionable either positive or negative. So far I do see
slight benefits in taking it, but not enough to recommend it to family or friends yet. I have mentioned it to them, and for them to investigate it
themselves, as do I to anyone that is considering using it.
Please be considerate and not to attack me for trying to determine if something questionable has validity. I welcome any recommendations on possible
methods to further test its effectiveness or any scientific evidence to prove one way or another of it's true potential.
