FDA warns against using Miracle Mineral Solution

The Food and Drug Adminstration is warning people not to use a supplement that claims to treat diseases ranging from HIV to acne, after receiving reports it is making consumers sick.  When used as directed,  the FDA says Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) produces chlorine dioxide, a potent bleach often used in industrial water treatment and stripping textiles.  

The FDA has received numerous reports of serious side effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and life threatening low-blood pressure from dehydration. 

MMS is also marketed under the name Miracle Mineral Supplement.  It is distributed on the internet by a variety of companies. Although all the products share the MMS name, the labels look different.   CNN has called the companies for comment, but so far, there's been no response.

The FDA is trying to determine how many people have used the supplement.  "At this point, we are just trying to get the word out and warn consumers," says Elaine Gansz Bobo, spokesperson for the FDA.   She says anyone using MMS should throw it away immediately. 

If you have used MMS and its made you sick, the FDA says you should see a doctor as soon as possible.  The FDA would also like to hear from you.  Click here for more information.

    I have been experimenting with Sodium Chlorite (MMS) for a year and a half. I started when I was recovering from a severe compound fracture of my foot. The wound had partially healed, but there was a persistent infection which had been held in check for several weeks by Zyvox, but was not being cured. When I was about to run out of Zyvox, which is very expensive, I began treating myself with Sodium Chlorite/Citric acid. That mixture yields ClO2, which is the active ingredient of MMS. After two days, the infection was obviously better, and in a few more days it was gone. I was using six drops of the 24% Sodium Chlorite solution reacted with sufficient Citric acid to complete the release of ClO2, taken two to four times daily. There are several protocols depending on the type of infection. For example, a four to five drop MMS solution, diluted with one to two tablespoon of water can be used to cure bad skin fungus infections. Two to four drops every two hours will cure viral infections such as flu. After a trip to Paris, where I was diagnosed as probably having H1N1 flu, the MMS cured the infection in two days. I have never had serious side effects, and I do not find the MMS to be harmful to beneficial intestinal flora. For one thing, the ClO2 is very rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream in the stomach, and does not enter the lower intestine to a significant degree. The ClO2 does its work in one hour or less, and after that there is no remaining residue of the chemical in your body. This treatment needs serious study. However, it would not surprise me to see the government/drug industry putting barriers in the way. I do not think MMS will replace all other treatments, but it is a powerful addition to many treatment regimens for many diseases. How many I do not know, but for sure, I know it works on the serious infections I have used it for.

    Clarification: The fungus treatment is done by applying the relatively strong solution topically, on the skin surface where the infection is. All other doses are mixed with a cup of water or a mixture of water and fruit juice, and taken by drinking the dilute solutions. Skin infections may best be treated by a combined topical treatment and simultaneously drinking an appropriate dose.

    You need to consider that skin infections are hard to reach by blood-delivered medication, since the invading organism is living in the outer surface layers of the skin where there is little blood circulation.

    I second the comment made earlier. Do not make comments about this treatment unless you have taken the trouble to try it. Also, to try the treatment properly, you need to study the various protocols and use the one that is most appropriate to the problem you are attempting to treat. Although MMS works quickly in most cases, it would be foolish to take one small dose and expect useful results. Although I find some of James Humble's statements to be pointless and exaggerated in the areas of opposition to vaccines, and in some of his excursions into conspiracy theories, he and his group have done a lot of useful work with MMS, and have developed several useful protocols. Go through his material carefully, and use the information about doses and frequencies. His information in these areas is very helpful. However, we are in an early stage of experimentation, and each person who wants to try the MMS treatments is doing so as an independent experimenter. If you do not have the guts and the intelligence to work out the details yourself, seek help, or use standard treatments. Just do not, please, dabble a bit and start acting like an expert. Especially if you want to be negative. That would be irresponsible in the extreme..

    Further Clarification: Topical treatment for skin fungal or other infections can be done by moistening a pad that is slightly larger than the area to be treated, and holding it in place by hand or with a piece of tape. If there is excessive burning, you need to use a more dilute solution. Some burning sensation on a raw area is normal if it goes away fairly quickly. Do not use an excessively strong solution, as this could slow healing by harming some tissues. On the other hand, diluting too much will prevent the solution from being effective. You can use a fairly thin folded piece of paper towel, for example. Remember that the solution will remain active for about 20 minutes only, after which a fresh solution must be used. Treat once or twice in an hour period, then wait a few hours to treat again. Judge by results. One important thing is that no disease organism will be able to develop resistance to this treatment by any means I can imagine. That means that if you fail to cure an infection with the first protocol you try, you can go to a different protocol until you find one that works. Good luck. Be persistent.

    We have been using MMS for years and have not had any illness since. It amazes me that the FDA tries to ban something that has serious side effects (Their words) such as nausea, vomiting and diareaha (sp), yet commercials are filled with their approved drugs that have a long list of side effects, including DEATH! The list goes on, "may cause blood clots, seizures, liver failure, kidney failure, heart attacks and death. I guess until they start pocketing money from Jim Humble, they will continue to discredit him.

      Actually, judging by the amount of wondrous testimonies, I would say the only 'sheeple' are the several individuals who are filling the comment section with scientifically improbable stories. Out of 115 comments, there are less then 20 that are anything but mindless praise for drinking glorified bleach. Also, are we really expected to believe that something (supposedly) effective against microbes and parasites is equally effective against a virus such as H1N1? Or that it can cure cancer and HIV/AIDS? Come on, if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.

      Reading this blog of comments it should be obvious it cures more than malaria. Jim Humble thinks from his experience since stumbling across this perhaps all disease other than morgellon and lyme could be cured. Lyme perhaps controlled.

    Interesting dialogue... I heard about 'MMS' from a friend and tried it for a while, as directed, even though I didn't have anything overtly wrong – because if the claims are right it would be a helpful and cheap remedy in an epidemic such as the avian flu / swine flu scares we seem to get every year now. And if it's effective against malaria that'd be good too – worth testing, I feel. I used it as directed and slight nausea and 'the runs' – so backed off as suggested and continued using for a while and felt clearer and cleaner afterwards, as if some pathogens had been evicted. Since then I've used the solution nearly neat on a couple of benign moles on my skin and some liver spots, and after a few applications they turned into what looked like scabs and soon flaked off, leaving clean skin underneath. Neat! – but I'd only recommend it to anyone who has the intelligence to handle cautious self medication – certainly not to anyone who'd be dumb enough to think that drinking household bleach could be a cure-all. I agree with others that I don't particularly like the name 'Miracle Mineral Supplement' - it's not a miracle, it's applied chemistry; it's not a mineral, it's a mild bleach; and it's not a supplement (as in 'nutritional'), it's a treatment.

    Big Pharma are in the business of 'managing' diseases.
    This is how they make their money, if they cured diseases, they would be out of business.
    When did you last hear of them actually 'curing' anything?
    I believe it was in the 50s, and it was polio, and if you read up on this, even this is debatable.
    Look at the amount of money that has gone into cancer research over the last 30 years, and it still isn't cured?
    Have you ever stopped to think why this is so?
    All diseases are viruses, and these viruses CAN be killed.
    Raymond Rife cured all diseases known to mankind in 1932, and someone had him silenced, who would do something like that? Maybe someone who would profit from selling you more and more drugs? Maybe someone else – who knows for sure, but do some research on Dr Rife?
    MMS cost pennies and as the testimonies show, can cure a lot of diseases, incidentally, Jim Humble makes NO money from the sale of MMS, but you can buy his book and DVD if you want. This is a genuine man with a desire to see people NOT getting ripped off by Big Pharma.
    I have tried it, even though i have nothing that needs curing, and I also felt sickly, so i reduced the drops and the sick feeling went away. Have a look into Sodium Bicarbonate also, if you want a cure for cancer.
    FDA are definately on the side of Big Pharma more than against it.
    MMS has the potential to bring down the drug business industry, which makes billions a year from 'managing' disease.
    This is why the FDA want to stop MMS, don't think for one second that they give a jot about your wellbeing.
    If you believe that, you will probably also believe that 3 buildings falling at freefall speed, one of which wasn't even hit by a plane, were brought down by terrorists instead of the nano thermite that DID bring them down.
    YOUR government do NOT care about you, just as my government do not care about me here in the UK.
    This will become public knowledge in the next 2 years anyway, and then everyone will be as mad as hell that we have been lied to on a daily basis for the last 100 or more years.
    These people only care about money, and if something has the potential to stop that flow of money, they need to be stopped.

    Ever since lead was banned in the late 70's, which was used in petrol. The manufacturing of HIV (AIDS) was man-made and can be induced by the solvent called benzene. Guess where the solvent benzene is?... in petrol! The oil companies have replaced lead with benzene. Read up here... http://www.coffinman.co.uk/unleaded_petrol.htm

    Using MMS, will help flush out the heavy toxins and keep the man-made HIV (AIDS) at bay.

    Hi Graham, you are so right about the FDA / DICTATORS they have carried out extensive research from memory in 1940s and again in the 70 to 80s on what is now called MMS off which I was lucky to read the now classed SECRET DOCUMENT. Where MMS was injected directly into a breast tumor the size of a tennis ball and was monitored over the the next few hours as it disappeared. I have witnessed a melanoma the size of a fist on a mans head who was to have have been scalped to remove the tumor from which he stood the chance 50-50 of dieing or being brain dead from the surgery which he canceled the day before, cured completely in less than a week with the following natural remedies. Firstly the melanoma was smeared with whats called BLACK SALVE a very old Native American herbal paste at the same time he took MMS every day. In 36 hours the melanoma had shrunk to half it's size, the Black Salve was applied again and in 4 days it fell off leaving a light pink scar. His comment was I feel better than I've ever felt before when asked by his DUMB Founded surgeon.
    I , my family and friends have all used MMS for a multitude of ailments and diseases. It's about time a medical health/ drug organization was set up separately in competition with the FDA, we the patients have had enough of the multi trillion dollar business dictators whom control our world with corruption and evil stand over tactics. Give us back our FREE CHOICE.

    Hi Guys,

    I am a MMS user for a past couple of years now and let me tell you couple of example how MMS is working. When my younger son was diagnosed with infamous swine flue by his pediatrician, MMS cured him with 24 hours. Same with my wife’s strep throat which ran away within a day. Recently, I gave bottle of MMS to friend of mine whose daughter is diagnosed with cyst in cervix. She took it for a day and it prevent for her to going to operation table. These are just couple of examples how effective MMS is and I am a skeptic become a believer. We all know FDA and pharmaceutical companies go with hand and hand. Just try for yourself and join the brave new world.

Wake up and do the research. ASPIRIN kills 500-1000 people every year!!! If you want a little education do some research on WHO WORKS AT THE FDA. ALL THE TOP GUYS COME FROM THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY. Did you also know that members of congress pretty much all own stock in pharmaceutical companies. WHY? Because they GET ADVANCE INFORMATION ON STOCK AND NEW PRODUCT RELEASES BEFORE THE PUBLIC DOES. This is called "insider" infomation and is against the law in this country, you can go to jail, EXCEPT if you are a member of congress and own stock in pharma companies. Ask your representative how much pharma stock they own. You will never see the FDA lose its power because of this and their plan is to get rid of as many alternative health products as possible, BECAUSE THEY REALLY WORK, and don't have the little side effects LIKE DEATH that many poisonous drugs they promote DO. There is an actual LAW, THAT ONLY DRUGS CAN CURE DISEASE. This is the law they use to throw practitioners in jail for telling the truth that many of these products DO CURE disease and health problems. Pharma companies can't patent natural cures so they can't make money on them. As Miracle Mineral Solution (a stupid name I agree) spreads throughout the world you will see the drug companies of the world start to get real nasty and people will go to jail and you dare not have any of this stuff in your posession maybe. We live in a rigged society where money rules the day, pharma companies are right up there with oil companies that own our government. I do believe despite how evil this system is that the power of humanity will eventually bring these powers down, you can rule by iron fist but when people wake up eventually the walls crumble, it will happen if humanity survives this period in history when everything is exactly backwards of what it should be. Keeping people SICK is big business, huge business, cancer itself is a major profit making industry, cancer cures will never come from the pharmaceutical industry.....

I mean look at all the good people spamming up the science forums with first hand testimonials of relieving diarrhea, soothing nausea and vomit, and all the good advice to just push through until the AIDS is no more ( which I guess Bishop Jim says is caused not by the crippling advance of HIV, but by drugs prescribed by the big-shoot hundred dollar bill toilet paper using pricks up at the pharm. companies and FDA). Well I say enough is enough! If this huckster of truth knows the cure for all disease, by GOD we should all support his right to free speech and his right to surpass science and the study of medicine, although he may have no medical training or even the faintest idea what the hell he is saying when he makes up all the chemistry and gooblegook he spouts off, he knows better than anyone else that we the people are all full of crap and deserve to be dooped and pay to do so.

I guess I just find it strange that any web page with a comments forum claiming otherwise, that indeed this is a scam and is being perpetuated by a crazy cult like old man preying on the sick, is immediately spammed up by even crazier fantasy-prone goons of this scam, I say scam in the nicest sense of the word.

    It is interesting that neither CNN nor the FDA (shame of both of you) have produced EVIDENCE that the solution does not work. I have not tried it, but read about it. MMS warns of these initial possible symptoms, handling hydration, and what they mean but interestingly enough NEITHER of you reported on this or bothered to do ANY research. How deep are CNN and the FDA in the pharmaceuticl industries pocket? If MMS works as stated, clearly the pharmaceutical companies, as well as the FDA and doctors, would be out of business. Pretty strong motivation to report on "dangerous side effects", which, by the way, don't sound remotely dangerous to someone with even a rather low IQ. The news industry never fails to disappoint anymore.

  33. Yes it works...

    I tried MMS when I contracted Lyme disease. Needless to say.. It worked and I didn't get sick. I couldn't get enough in my dog though (bitten by tick too) because of the taste and he did develop the Lyme and had to be treated with expensive anti-biotics. I also use the MMS if I feel I'm getting a flu or cold and it works every time.

    The side effects are no big deal and if anyone got really sick from it, I would bet it was because they were impatient and took too much, too soon.

    By the way.. I also got rid of a nasty skin cancer with the black salve.. $29 (included shipping), as opposed to $300 to $3000 for surgery. Of couse "quackwatch.com" (funded by the pharmaceutical industry) would say "why use an unproven treatment when traditional methods work so well?"

    "MMS" my all family now use every day

    make sleep well . very much at night time .

    so i gave to all my family . they now very good quality sleep.

    so for me MMS good theraphy . that 's it .

    sleep drug make problem more then MMS

    so i though ->

    Mms is a cleansing agent for the body. It destroys any pathogens it encounters (except those that naturally occur in the bowells) but will not harm any other cells.

  35. It is the most amazing thing I ever had

    It was a kind of miracle to find about MMS and also to see the results from it. You will be surprised to see the results once you try it sometime. You won't regret to try it and know about it. It will save you and your family someday. There are no reason for all people here to tell a lie about MMS. Most of them are saying the truth cause it really works. You don't believe it? I understand cause I didn't do at first too, However, you don't have nothing to loose to test it sometime when you are sick. It is 100% safe. I even give it to my young son whenever he is sick. Since I knew about the MMS, I've never gone to the hospital. You will save your money too!!

    The FDA takes money to approve drugs and medical devices....you know, a bribe. Drug manufacturers make millions of dollars so they have millions to pay.

    FDA might be taking money from drug companies to ban MMS.
    Think for yourselves.........our governments (fed, state & local) allow neurotoxins (insecticides) to be sprayed in our houses. Our federal government is allowing adulteration of food (GMO).

    I have had a virus for over one year, went to two different Doctors, was given powerful antibiotics, which did not work. I became so ill with these drugs and developed an allergic reaction and had hives for almost three months. The last Doctor told me that I had a virus around my lungs and in the muscles. There was no known drug to combat it. Just live with it.
    I research until I cam across MMS, order some and within a over a week, I felt like a new person. Before I couldn't even climb the stairs, had to use oxygen. I couldn't even do day to day chores. Yes, I got sick, throw up, had the runs (the dead virus had to go some place out of the body). Now, I take it to maintain and do not get sick. I have felt better than I had for years, besides, there is no pain in the chest.
    My husband also has taken it and has received the same benefits with energy like he had when he was 40 years old. He is 75 years old and can now out work a 30 year old. Don't believe anything that the government say, because they have an alternative motive and not for the best of the average person.

    I have used the MMS for over a year and has greatly improved my overall health. I had 2 times very severe flu and both times with MMS i overcame it for a day or two instead of 1-2 weeks. I have not had any side effects. If you take MMS proparly there shoud be no real side effects and in result most of the health problems will go away. I think that the reason why FDA is taking MMS off the market is that they are afraid that many people will get healthy and the pharmaceutical companies will loose billions of dollars from not being able to sell thier poisonous so called medicine which causes hundreds of thousands deaths because of thier "medicine" serious side effects.
    Obviously FDA does not care about the thousands stories of success after using MMS. There are even medical test results proving the effectiveness and harmlessness of MMS but FDA does not care about them either. Luckily anybody can easily make MMS at home and use it to save his or somebody elses life or simply improve his overall health.

    This is the same FDA that said the air at ground zero was safe to breathe...wow.. Educate and protect yourself and your family. There is no money in the cure, only the treatment of symptoms.

    Excuse my haste in the last comment. It was the EPA that said the air was safe on 9-11. Goes to show how politics trumps the "right thing."

    I spent half of my 30s seeing multiple doctors, shelled out cash for medicines that didn't cure, and felt terrible most of the time. Chlorine dioxide works for me. It is also used by many public water systems in the treatment process. Many people are already drinking it in small doses and don't even know it. I'm curious to know what studies were performed by the epa to establish the mcl for ClO2. I can only assume that it is safe to drink in small quantities over long periods of time when the epa says so. Does anyone know how they arrived at an mcl of .8ppm?

    One last thing to consider. If mms didn't help people, they wouldn't be fighting for it. If the pharm industry didn't argue against it they could lose a pile of cash, along with their respective political influences. I hope other folks wake up and find the truth so they may also live well.

    Wow, what a huge response. But check the facts. Go to Pub Med and look up studies on Chlorine Dioxide and Acidified Sodium Chlorite. Particularly Chlorine Dioxide. On top of all the uses in our food and water, clinical trials on animals have shown chlorine dioxide prevents Hep B and Polio. The "negative" trials reported by the FDA are small trials where rats/mice were given water containing chlorine dioxide as their ONLY water source. And that is not how MMS is used.

    I did my research before using it. The scaremongering that is coming out is bizarre. The concentrations recommended are very small, well within acceptble limits.

    My experience: I have long-term open wounds (as part of a medical treatment) and these frequently become infected – par for the course. To treat these with antibiotics, I was up to two full 20 pill packets and the infection still in place. I used MMS – 3 drops every two hours – for a day and the infection/s are gone. These are infections identified and confirmed by a doctor. MMS upsets my stomach a little for a day. I have used it on and off for 10 months.

    And here is the kicker for all the scaremongerers, MMS cannot be banned. It is made from two readily available ingredients with a huge number of common uses. Your water is probably treated with it. Much of your food, particularly meat, is treated with it. It kills all bacteria, and all viruses.

    There is even a Canadian medical research company (cannot remember the name) that is working to patent a treatment regime using a very similar chemical formula, that produces chlorine dioxide.

    As for the FDA, all of the regulatory bodies/government departments/big corporations in every industry stream have a revolving door for employment of senior executives in particular. Anyone who tries to argue that there is no influence (if not outright corruption) in these arenas should be questioning their own naivette, not those who use MMS.

    Yes Pandora is out of the bag:) making chlorine dioxide impossible to get will be very difficult. Then there is MMS2 calcium hypochlorite, or pool shock. Good Luck with that one to FDA and pharmo. I am sure there will be a try and big scare to take this from the market.

    The FDA is the enforcer for Big Pharma. They could care less about public health. Just look at the Avandia scandal. One of many drugs that will kill it's users and the FDA still can't seem to remove it from the market. But if an MD uses some kind of natural product to treat a patient, they will bust down their doors, theaten the staff, steal all the doctor's records and label him a quack. Who funds the FDA? Big Pharma. Why would they bite the hand that feeds them?

      Clive and Gail sure do have similar experiences with the stuff... my guess is one person with a whole lot of time to post phony testimonials... but thats just one opinion.

      how about a testimonial on the product's failure? how about just 1! that sure would be something, huh? just one person who used it properly and it didn't work. how novel!

    MMS Miracle mineral solution. I went from "gung ho! Greatest ever, must promote, God at work," to this is simply poison at a low dose. It does harm you. I have used it many times. The level of irritable bowl syndrome was astronomical after taking it. My hair also turned very gray. I felt sick when taking it and dehydrated after. This is poison and your BODY KNOWS IT. Your body reacts like it is smelling and drinking poison. LISTEN to your body. Switch to food grade hydrogen peroxide and vitamin D3 or D2. The only time I would even chance it is if I was in a condition where I was going to die, like full blown cancer. Then try everything. On the topical level DMSO was more powerful than MMS.

    The odor is real poison. Bleach and chlorine kill bacteria, pathogens, all of the most powerful bacteria in the world, and also people. This stuff is very harmful.

    My estimated amount that I took was about 50 times over close to a 2 year period. Herpes simplex 1 was my motivation. It slowed them down but never cured them. I have had WAY WAY WAY WAY better results with food grade 35% hydrogen peroxide with colonial silver and aloe. My energy level is up compared to down with MMS.

    Again, take MMS is you are going to die from a disease. That is about it !!! I am so unhappy with myself that I bought into this and made myself sick by taking it, suffered the instant ill reactions when taking it, and was actually putting up a web site to promote it. I hope this inspires you!

  50. MMS is truly miracle.

    You need to find the truth. Don't trust others. Try it and you will know.
    You will save your life with MMS.
