Default Progress report on my MMS therapy

Hi,

Hopefully, this will be helpful to others beginning this therapy. I'll make an effort to keep you posted.

MMS came to my attention after I spent 5 months on the Beck protocol trying to rid myself of systemic yeast. The Beck stuff helped a lot, but I didn't feel much better. Then I found out that my big problem was really that I had heavy metal poisoning. Since MMS is purported to handle both, I thought I'd give it a shot. My most immediate interest was to get rid of a bad allergy to perfume, and a practitioner told me that was because of the metal poisoning. It makes sense that heavy metal poisoning is my basic problem. I've had a lot of exposure to mercury and lead. I also would like to resolve a weight problem, as I've tried very hard to do something about it, and nothing, so far, has worked.

I started on the two doses a day protocol. I increased doses over two weeks up to 12 drops, but got sick and went off for two weeks. I went back on the frequent small dose protocol. I am not using a timer, so my doses are not exact. I get in 5 to 8 doses a day. I did one drop for 9 days, two for 9 days, three for 6 days, and have been on 4 drops for 4 days so far. I found that trying to move to the next dosage too soon resulted in getting sick. The first time I tried to move to four drops I vomited white foam (yeast?). The rest of the time going to the bathroom frequently was my indicator that I was going too fast. Judging from my low tolerance for MMS, I guess I'm sicker than I thought. I am healthier than I've ever been, but I am chronically low energy and allergic to so much.

I haven't noticed a lot of change in things like skin tags, topical fungal problems, etc. Maybe a little, but not much yet. I haven't used it topically, yet.

In general, on the therapy I feel very low energy, somewhat toxic, and am having a series of mild but unpleasant symptoms like muscle aches, joint aches, fatigue, etc. I have resigned myself to the fact I'm going to feel like a dishrag for the duration. I hate the stuff and put it in a capsule, and drink lots of water to keep the stuff from burping back at me. Yuck. Just yuck. I feel yucky, and this better work, because I don't want to feel like this for nothing.

Last week, my perfume allergy got a lot worse. I reacted abruptly and with great emotional upset to even mild perfumes, like Windex and Cascade. Usually, I get a strong "whacked in the face" feeling, and become upset, then more symptoms like swelling, sickness, pain, etc. set in. This time, the emotional part happened first, and very strongly. The other symptoms were worse, too. I figured that if my allergy was worse, something must be happening.

This week, I decided to test it and went to THE MALL. Very strange response. I did not have the whacked in the face feeling, and I did not have the emotional response. I did become stupid and stuporous, and later, my muscles got very painful and sore to the touch. I got very tired. I guess this is a response that I never get to because of all the other nasty stuff that happens first to make me get away from the perfume. I'm guessing this means that the allergy is partly resolved and will resolve further with continued use of MMS. Yay!

Other things I have noticed on this therapy is that my skin is dry. My cracked heels has spread to all over my soles, making them look like old vinyl. Another thing that I'm hoping is doing the "worse before it gets better" thing.

So, at this point, I am very encouraged that this therapy is helping me with lifelong problems. 45 years of being violently allergic to common things may be coming to a close. I truly hope so.

Maria

Seems like one should be taking some other things to help with detox from MMS, such as green tea, veggies, maybe coffee, etc. But not with the MMS in the stomach. Maybe some herbs could help the stomach- goldenseal or something. Maybe do these first, then the MMS after it has cleared the stomach?

Hi,

I have been taking support stuff. I'm taking calcium, magnesium, potassium, alfalfa, chromium, multi-mineral-vitamin, probiotics, and occasional carrot juice (freshly macerated). (I find nibbling on carrot pulp crackers soothing.)
I'm thinking about taking bentonite an hour before shifting up a drop.

I went up to 5 drops after I was comfortable with 4, and spent the day back and forth to the bathroom. I think that I get sick when I go up a drop no matter how long I was on the previous dose. I'm guessing it could be that a larger dose gets in farther so it addresses a different problem.

I'm still low energy, oogy, and feeling toxic, but I'm feeling more optimistic. I think my skin is looking younger, despite being dryer since on the therapy. I think all the roving unpleasantness is actually those systems becoming cleaner.

I've lost 10 pounds since starting on December 3rd, 5 of which were in the last week. It could be from the loss of apatite, but I'm hoping it's from the therapy itself. My sense is that something that was holding the weight on isn't there anymore. Time will tell.

Optimistically,
Maria

Hi Maria, you might want to look into doing a couple of coffee enemas. It will help the liver to detox.

I'm coming to the conclusion that pushing the sickness barrier is not a good idea in my case. The way things have been working is that when I go up a drop, I get sick, regardless of how long I've been on the previous dose. So, how it goes is I take one drop more than I have been, and two hours later I take either the same dose, or back one drop, then at about four hours after the first dose, I get diarrhea. I quit taking any doses, and stay sick for the rest of the day. It would seem to me that if the MMS only sticks around in any quantity for about two hours, then I should get better in a few hours. But, if the reason for being sick is the release of toxins, then it would make me sick longer. I'm also having muscle pain, toxic feelings, weakness, fatigue, dry skin, loss of apatite, sleeping a lot, lack of motivation, gut pain, mild headaches, brain fog and just feeling yucky. Since I haven't heard of MMS causing most of these other symptoms, I am going to assume they are from the detox. I'm guessing that shorter Herxheimer reactions are due to pathogen die off, and this drawn out reaction might be because I have so much heavy metal coming out.

So, I have adopted a new strategy. I moved back to three drops a dose, and will stay there until I feel the toxic load decrease enough that I don't feel toxic all the time. I was using nausea or diarrhea as my indicator to pull back, but I think it more prudent to broaden my symptom indicators to include the other symptoms. It wouldn't be smart to overload my elimination systems.

If anybody else has a better understanding, I'd be happy to hear it.

On the bright side, my hair seems to have more body. Go figure.
I think my muscles are less tense, too. I've been sleeping better.

Maria

Hi Maria,

I suspect too that they are from the detox. I do think it is better to go slow than fast. The coffee enema might give you some energy when you really need it. I learned that I shouldn't do it in the evening or I'm up and busy all night.... its like mainlining caffiene...and although that is a concern for some I think the benefits far outweight that side effect for most.

If you need a break from the mms remember that you can always do 2 or 3 drops unactivated a couple times a day. It lightens the blow and can give you a psychologoical rest yet still you are working towards your goal.

Do you have access to steam or even a dry sauna? or a really hot bath that makes you sweat with diaphoretic teas can help you detox through your skin. The hotter the better for 30 minutes to one hour....and you can use a cold compress for your face and head, just don't pass out in there! Then finish with an ice cold shower.... then bundle up and go to bed.

We often expect too much work from our internal organs to detox. Our skin is a major detox organ but we have to stimulate it to work. You might try this every day for one week. I would not go into this bath feeling nausea from mms though. Cut back some for it.

Thanks Arrowwind.

I did the coffee enema yesterday, and it helped a little. I still feel cold and bloated and all the rest, just less. I do that before eating in the morning, the few times I have done it.

Dropping back to three drops doesn't seem to be too hard a push.

No sauna, but I have a hot tub and I am in it at least an hour a day. Lately, I've been in there three times a day. I sweat. I have to keep up the electrolytes. I'm being prone to muscle cramps and the potassium really helps.

I looked up a recipe for a diaphoretic tea, and it looks yummy. That might be a nice thing to put in the routine.

I went and looked up more testimonials to encourage me. I see so many people saying they had great results in a few days or weeks, and I've been doing this two months (with a two week break after the first round) and am still only seeing the slightest of improvements while feeling useless. I'm really hoping that means that I'm going to have some huge improvements once the **** clears out. I have people around me who think I'm poisoning myself with the MMS. Despite the doubt expressed above, I'm really hanging my hopes on this.

Thanks for your advice and encouragement.

Maria

Hi,

I'm feeling much better on a three drop (5 to 8 times a day) dose. I just need to be patient. I still feel a little toxic with pain in muscles and gut, but tolerable. Weakness has declined a lot, and I sorted all my sewing, weaving and spinning materials today! I was planning to watch The Stand (8 hours), assuming I'd still feel like a couch potato, but got lots done.

I notice that the clogged pores in my face are clearing. I think my clothes are fitting looser, despite a return of most of the weight I thought I lost.

Maria

Sounds like you are heading in the right direction. Keep up with the hot tub and tea. A coffee enema daily or a couple of times a week won't hurt. Stimulating the liver into gear is good, It will push it to unload built up toxins. Have you ever done a liver cleanse with olive oil and lemon juice and epsom salts? I just wonder about your gall bladder/liver function in general. It won't hurt to do and may be helpful. I think that all people should do them once in a while, like once a year, at least. Im glad you slowed down with the mms. Jim Humble is now advising a lower dose more frequently in the day for many people.

Arrow,

Do you think Maria would benefit from Lugol's or Nascent iodine? It's supposed to be very good for detoxing heavy metals and weight loss, (according to Dr. Nan Fuchs) and also for the skin (feet), especially very dry skin. I started taking Nascent orally last night and will take 4 drops three times a day to start. My feet sound just like hers. But I'm hoping to build my immune system up with iodine and other nutrients to detox myself. Dr. Fuchs says 9 out of 10 women patients that come to her test very low in iodine, and it's important to all hormones and well being in the whole body. So I'll start there and maybe add the MMS after I see how this goes.

Good luck to you Maria!

Well, iodine supplementation is good for probably 99 percent of the population and you know I am a huge promoter of it.

But I try not to overwhelm people...
So much to do so little time.
I'm going to put a little iodine testimonial up today.

Hi,

Nightowl, I do put iodine on my skin at least once a week if I remember. It absorbs through the skin readily. I am not familiar with Lugol's or Nascent iodine.

Arrowwind, I have done that kind of liver flush. I have done it twice, and the second time (about two years after the first), I got so little, I decided it was a once in ten year procedure. It is so awful I don't want to do it often, and I certainly don't think I have the strength to do one until I'm off this therapy. I would surely barf it up. I have continued with the coffee cleanses, though.

Well, I'm still trying to move up to four drops. My period hit me like a ton of bricks, and I was useless yesterday. The therapy seems to be making a lot of things that are problems worse. I hope it means that my periods will be better when I'm done with this. My muscles hurt. I'm very weak. I can putter, like doing dishes, but somebody tried to get me to move some small boxes yesterday, and after about five, I had to stop and breathe awhile. I'm still getting cold easily, too.

I think I'm going to space the doses out to three hours, rather than two, briefly, until I get better with the 4 drops. This is getting very tedious. It seems that there is two or three days lag from increasing dose to the detox becoming overwhelming, so I guess I should scale up gradually. Like instead of going from three to four, add a four drop dose among three drop doses, and then increase the ratio over a longer period of time. Something like 3-3-3-4-3-3-3, 3-4-3-3-3-4-3, repeat last, 3-4-3-4-3-3-4, repeat last, 4-3-4-3-4-3-4, repeat last, etc., until I get to all fours.

On the very bright side, I got a massage yesterday to help the toxins move out, and the massage therapist (I've been a regular for about 5 years) told me I had gone from chronically tense and riddled with trigger points, past normal, and straight into relaxed. I've had muscle problems all my life, and suddenly, I'm in the best ten percent of this guy's clientele. Frankly, I'm dumbfounded. I would not have guessed, because I am still in so much pain. If this therapy does nothing more than release my muscles, it's been worth every queasy or painful moment.

Heartburn is pretty much gone. I think a lipoma (benign fatty tumor) on my forehead is getting smaller. Maybe soon I won't have to wear bangs.

People think I'm nuts. Last night, half a dozen people were giving me a hard time for poisoning myself with chlorine. Well, when I'm done with this, and my body works like it's supposed to, I think those same people will come back and say, "Now what was that stuff you were taking?"

Maria
