I am ashamed to say that I was one of the dumb asses who actually bought Jim Humbles miracle mineral supplement .... and I didn't need to have the FDA tell me that it was bad, I found out the hard way.

Sick as a dog constant diarrhea for days and a burning sensation in my heart.

I felt so bad that there is no way on earth I could see this as doing anything beneficial for me.

I put the stuff in the cupboard and forgot about it and I would NEVER EVER touch it again.

Well

This morning I got this in my inbox

What prompted you to take this in the first place? Did someone suggest it to you or do you actively seek "miracle" drugs and minerals on the web?

I would not send them your remaining product. Rather, I would find out if there are any class action lawsuits, or I would contact the FDA to find out if you are able to legally file for damages of any sort. Also, contact a lawyer, and show them the letter. The consultation would likely be free. Don't just sit around and do nothing, you are a victim of corporate greed and you need to find out how you can get reparations.

ROFL everything posted in this thread is rediculous. First of all MMS is sold as a water purifier and if you mix it with citrus acid to form chlorine dioxide a powerful oxidant you do so at your own risk. Second of all i have used activated MMS and i don't feel any ill effects although once on an empty stomach i took 14 drops activated and vomited and had diarrehah but that went away in around 8 hours. What chlorine dioxide does in your body is oxidize pathogens that cannot surivive the oxidation process. Ozone oxidation processes are used in hospitals to aid patients. I used MMS 4 hours before posting this and didn't feel any adverse effects. I believe it comes down to how much you use and how many pathogens are in your system.

There was recently a thread where an ATS member was asking for advice on his sons Leukemia... Someone recommended this stuff!!!

Read up people, always research what you're putting into your body...

This stuff is literally (yes - literally) BLEACH.

This product has been around for a couple of years. I've done research and i started using it, in very small doses. I never experienced any side effects but my health has improved a lot. This is just my personal experience.
On a side note, i have also received this email because i got this product online.
By the way, i do not trust any information or advice coming from the FDA, or any of the triple letter agencies in the US of A.

No do some research it is not bleach. Bleach is Sodium Hypochlorite non activated MMS is sodium chlorite. Bleach is NaClO non activated MMS is NaClO2 that extra Oxygen atom makes the molecole more stable than bleach. But the main use of MMS is to use the NaClO2 to make ClO2 you do this by adding Citric Acid.

Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS): Product as consumed produces a potent bleach



Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS): Product as consumed produces a potent bleach

[Posted 07/30/2010]

AUDIENCE: Consumers, Emergency Medicine

ISSUE: FDA warned consumers not to consume or use Miracle Mineral Solution, an oral liquid solution also known as "Miracle Mineral Supplement" or "MMS." The product, when used as directed, produces an industrial bleach that can cause serious harm to health. The product instructs consumers to mix the 28 percent sodium chlorite solution with an acid such as citrus juice. This mixture produces chlorine dioxide, a potent bleach used for stripping textiles and industrial water treatment. High oral doses of this bleach, such as those recommended in the labeling, can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and symptoms of severe dehydration.



Enough said.

[edit because EX tags suck]

[edit to also say - yes, by itself it is not. However, as you should always follow the directions with any product - the product becomes a bleach when properly administered - thus the product is a bleach, yes literally

I knew Jim Humble when he was selling mining equipment in Trona Calif.

He has a colorful past. and is not the most honest person around.

Before using MMS you need to read Jims disclaimers
jimhumble.biz...
jimhumble.biz...


This page provides information about MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) which is a well known salt in solution. The information is not a substitute for licensed medical professionals who can diagnose, treat, and give medical advice. This page informs people about an alternative health option that non-professional people sometimes use as voluntary experimental researchers. These MMS web sites describe the use of chlorine dioxide which has been in use since 1950 for limited internal and external use - city water supplies, swimming pools, stabilized oxygen, and water purification tablets. The use of MMS and these descriptions are not representing the practice of medicine. These MMS pages assume no responsibility for how people use these informative materials. No products are sold or shipped from this web site. No money is collected or billed.

www.jimhumble.com...

If you read all the disclaimers you find he makes no real claims for MMS and tries to claim no responsibilities for its use.

Jim Humble does not sell MMS he sells the chemical under another name and use,( water purification) to a network of dealers that repackage it in containers with the MMS label on it.
He does this to limit his liability and to put the legal blame on the dealers.

Yes Chlorine Dioxide is used as an industrial cleaner and sanitizer, but so are alot of things that we use. Like the foaming agent in your shampoos SLS, this is used as an industrial cleaner too. In my post i meant that MMS is not the same chemical compound as household bleach.

The topic is misleading, the recall is from the distributor not the FDA, the FDA has issued a warning.www.fda.gov...
My family and friends have all used Sodium Chlorite @ 28% solution with no ill effects, 15 drops twice a day for a week, when mixed with 7 ounces of juice after activating with citric acid the ratio works out to 233 drops of juice to one drop of 28% solution of sodium chlorite, seems to me to be a pretty weak solution of "bleach" as mentioned. Although similar I would suggest Chlorine in your drinking water at the commone 4ppm and the amount ingested, breathed etc of more concern.
The National Cancer Institute believes that those of us who consume chlorinated water have a 93% increased risk of many cancers, in part because it combines naturally with organic matter in water to make trihalomethanes—molecules that contribute to the formation of cancer.

It is against the law for anyone in the US to make certain kinds of medical or "cure" claims without a license which is why people are limited in their discussion or claims regarding health topics, or substances,
so to impune personal reasons for Humbles disclaimers is sort of disengenous.

I've used chlorine dioxide and, except for one or two instances of nausea, I've had great effects with it.
I'm going to continue to use it as a prn because I'm fairly sure that I won't need it every day.
A few drops once a week is plenty for me.
And, I have to say, it works really well.

So, I received an email from the MMS mailing list today and I was wondering if any of you wanted to read it.
I'm not going to cut and paste the whole thing because there's a lot of nonsense in it, but there's certainly some decent commentary in it.
If any of you want snipits or the email in it's entirety, just let me know.

MMS is wonderful if you use it correctly. Like someone else said before - read and follow the directions. And even if you do not use it correctly, it will not do permanent harm to you - it just gives you nausea and makes you vomit or get the runs but that is because of the toxins your body is releasing.

I use MMS as soon as I start to get a sore throat and it will soon be gone. I have even cured Strep Throat using an MMS gargle for a couple of days.

I have brushed my teeth with it and seen my mouth become healthier.

I have taken MMS when a tooth has started to hurt. The MMS got rid of the bacteria hitting my nerves so the tooth pain was no longer there.

I have used MMS to treat athletes foot.

I have used MMS on a fresh burn and the pain was almost instantly gone and the blister went away very fast.

MMS truly does work and it was only a matter of time before the FDA got involved. Instead of running away scared of it, you all should be considering buying some before it is illegal to sell.

Sodium chlorite is an industrial byproduct.

I don't care whether it works or not. MY question is how this joker can get away with charging $20 for a tiny vial of this stuff, when he's buying the raw chemical for PENNIES.

For crying out loud, you can by sodium chlorite in chemical shops for CHEAP, you'd just have to dilute it yourself before you could use it.

All he does is dilute the raw chemical, package it, and then mark up the price like 8000%. It's ludicrous!

I personally would never use the stuff, especially not as a preventive, but I've got no problem with people who do and find that it works for them.
Good for you.

But PLEASE - don't be a sucker. Don't pay real money for this stuff. It's practically free if you just get it somewhere other than him.

You pay $20 for a bottle that lasts for months, even years. It works out to be something like a penny or two per dose. You dont get a tiny vial, you get a small bottle of it.

A dose is literally between 1 DROP and 15 DROPS at a time. The $20 you spend goes a looooong way.

Funny how people are so quick to bash something they know nothing about..
