MMS, also known as Miracle Mineral Solution can also be taken as Chlorine Dioxide Solution (also known as CDS). This substance works by oxidizing pathogens and it has a very broad spectrum of action against bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and a variety of other human pathogens.

Introduction to Chlorine Dioxide


IMPORTANT NOTE: Many people today follow Andreas Kalcker’s advice to make Chlorine Dioxide Solution (CDS) in advance. They take sodium chlorite and add the activator and then store the mixture for later use. I do NOT recommend doing this. I recommend that people follow Jim Humble’s system for using chlorine dioxide. He calls this substance “Miracle Mineral Solution” or MMS and he advocates that patients mix each dose of CDS / MMS at the time when they intend to consume it. When you store CDS for later use, it can become inert and ineffective. In fact, it starts to become less effective within 30 minutes after it is first mixed. Rather, for best results at treating major diseases like COVID-19 or cancer, mix the sodium chlorite with the activator each time you intend to take a dose.


Chlorine dioxide is a treatment that stands out from other treatment protocols for cancer and other diseases (including COVID-19, malaria, HIV, and more) for a variety of reasons. For one thing, it was not developed on the basis of a particular theory (e.g. the Trophoblast Theory of Cancer, Somatidian Theory, the Warburg Effect, etc.). Rather, it’s usefulness was discovered by accident by a man named Jim Humble, who was searching for gold in malaria-infested rainforests. It can be used to cure almost any infectious disease including malaria, dengue, herpes, AIDs, dementia, antibiotic-resistant diseases, coronavirus, influenza, and more. As such, this stuff is an excellent travel medicine (and an important substance to always have in the medicine cabinet at home) because it’s compact and powerful against a wide range of infectious organisms.


Jim Humble used chlorine dioxide to save his friends’ lives as they lay dying the rainforest from malaria. He had no other substance to offer them except the solution that he’d brought with him to purify water. To his surprise, the chlorine dioxide (in a slightly stronger dose than what he would use to purify water for drinking) worked to cure malaria quickly. Within hours, his friends were on the road to recovery, which is significant (if you’ve ever had malaria, you know what I’m talking about).


So Humble experimented with treating other diseases using chlorine dioxide. He was never able to get funding to study it formally, as you’d expect given the political restraints of finding a cancer cure (to do so would destroy Big Pharma), but despite this, Humble was able to develop a large following of people who used his chlorine dioxide treatment (known as the Miracle Mineral Supplement) to treat various diseases. These people have reported their results from using the treatment. Information about MMS and people’s successes using it are available online at the bottom of this article via a link to testimonials and in Jim Humble’s books.

Chlorine Dioxide/Miracle Mineral Supplement/MMS

Quick Summary

Chlorine dioxide, also known as MMS or Miracle Mineral Supplement, is used to treat a wide variety of infectious and degenerative diseases. In treating cancer, the substance is able to cause cancer cells to revert back into normal, healthy cells. Cancer patients often combine chlorine dioxide with dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) to create an even more powerful treatment protocol. But MMS can also be used to cure influenza or the common cold (which, by the way, is a coronavirus). It works by oxidizing pathogens, which is rather like causing them to explode. The chemistry that makes MMS-DMSO work against pathogens is the reason why it has such a broad action against so many different types of microorganisms from viruses and bacteria to parasites and protozoans. This is a powerful combination. This author has personally used DMSO and MMS to cure malaria, canker sores, cat bites, flu, colds, skin wounds, and the big “C”: Cancer.

Detailed Information


Chlorine dioxide is a gas produced during the preparation of MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement) or CDS (chlorine dioxide) in a special at-home procedure. The chlorine gas remains trapped inside the liquid for about 30 minutes after it is prepared. During this time, the MMS can be administered transdermally through the skin (by combining it with DMSO), consumed orally, used as a douche, or as an enema (NOTE: NEVER put DMSO in an enema).  MMS is easy to prepare at home with the proper materials [1]


The gas produced by MMS in combination with other ingredients consists of small quantities of chlorine dioxide that will damage and kill pathogens, cancer cells, and other unhealthy cells and particles in the body without doing any harm to healthy cells. The MMS formula consists of distilled water and 28% sodium chlorite, a chemical commonly used to cleanse water to make it safe for human consumption. A specific procedure for using MMS and other ingredients can be followed to create the chlorine dioxide compound that is said to have cancer-curing qualities. [1]

Most people have consumed MMS or CDS in very low doses at one time or another without even realizing it because it is used to purify municipal water supplies. [4]



Administering Chlorine Dioxide


Jim Humble, the man who developed MMS, recommends that patients who plan to follow the MMS/chlorine dioxide protocol at home do so with great care and study. His website offers books on the subject that would be valuable for individuals looking to work with chlorine dioxide as a cancer treatment (see resources list for link). [2]


When I take MMS or give it to my family, I decide how much to take based on how sick I think we are. For illnesses that involve fevers, I generally take 6-8 activated drops (activated for 1 minute) with 18 to 24 drops of DMSO added to the water immediately before drinking it. I administer this dose to myself or my family members one per hour for two consecutive hours and then I wait 12-24 hours and administer one more dose either the next morning or that evening. After those initial 3 doses, I evaluate whether I (or my family member) is feeling better or worse and typically start administering 3 activated drops (with 9 drops of DMSO) hourly until the illness subsides. But first-time users of MMS should start slowly and observe how their body reacts to MMS. If you are very ill with a disease like cancer or malaria, it’s essential that your body can detoxify quickly as you kill the offending pathogens. Consider using an enema whenever you take MMS to speed up the process of detoxification.

Coronavirus Note: If you take MMS / CDS to treat COVID-19, using an enema may also be wise because the severest forms of this disease involves hypoxemia that may actually be related to liver issues and a dilation of capillaries in the lungs. Doing enemas with either clean, filtered water, water with baking soda (to raise your pH levels) or coffee enemas (which can also raise your pH levels) can give your liver a boost. Put baking soda in a nebulizer along with a few drops of DMSO and clean filtered water to treat a cough.

MMS Recipe


Below, the basic procedure for producing chlorine dioxide at home is outlined:


      Use 5 drops of 10% citric acid per drop of MMS solution, or a 5:1 ratio (i.e. for 5 drops of chlorine dioxide, one would put 5 drops of MMS solution into a glass (made of glass), and then mix in 25 drops of 10% citric acid, freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice).


      To make one drop of chlorine dioxide, start with 1 drop of MMS solution and 5 drops of 10% citric acid (or 1 drop of 50% citric acid), lemon juice, or lime juice.


o   NOTE: Store-bought lemon and lime juice may have extra added ingredients that interfere with the creation of chlorine dioxide. It’s crucial that the patient freshly squeezes the lemon/lime juice in order for the treatment to work properly.


      After distributing the citric acid and MMS in the appropriate quantities, mix them together periodically for 3 minutes.


      After 3 minutes, add 6-8 ounces of water into the glass. Drink the whole glass of water to consume the 1 drop of chlorine dioxide [3].



How to Make MMS at Home from Sodium Chlorite

In the U.S. it can be hard to find an MMS supplier because they aren’t allowed to advertise Miracle Mineral Solution. A lot of people make their own Miracle Mineral Solution using sodium chlorite. Jim Humble provides instructions for how to make your own MMS at this link. He also explains how to find sodium chlorite.


MMS Herxheimer Reaction 

The consumption of chlorine dioxide should be gradually built up over a period of time by starting with a low-dose and moving to a higher, therapeutic dose. Without this slow build up, chlorine dioxide can cause nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting from its harsh effects on the stomach and the strong die-off reaction that it causes . It is recommended to start with ½ a drop of chlorine dioxide on the first day of use; to do this, follow the above procedure for making 1 drop of chlorine dioxide, then drink only ½ of the glass of water (throw away the rest of the water, since the treatment will lose its effectiveness after 30 minutes). If within the first thirty minutes, six hours, and then 24 hours the patient’s stomach reacts well to the treatment, they may increase the dose to 1 drop the second day. [3]


Though I talked above about taking a strong dose for feverish illnesses, I wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you already have some experience working with MMS / CDS and you know how it affects you. It isn’t recommended to build up the dosage by more than one drop per day if you’re new at using this type of medicine. If the patient’s stomach reacts acceptably to the treatment, the goal is to continue increasing the dosage by one drop every day (taking hourly doses) until the desired dosage is achieved. A common recommendation is to take 3 drops of chlorine dioxide / MMS every hour for 8 hours every day. [3]


What to Avoid While Taking MMS


Patients taking chlorine dioxide / MMS should avoid the following within the 2 hours before and after the chlorine dioxide treatment:


      Vitamin C and other antioxidants – Oxidants like Chlorine Dioxide and Antioxidant therapies like high-dose vitamin C belong to class of medicine called Reactive Oxygen Species Medicine. Learn more here about OXIDANT therapies like CDS and ANTIOXIDANTS and how to use these medicines to cure COVID.

      Immune builders

      Protocel / Cantron / Entelev / Cancell (This alternative medicine can be used to cure COVID and to restore health in individuals with Long Haul COVID, but it must be used by itself).


These substances can render the MMS / CDS ineffective.

How Chlorine Dioxide Works


Chlorine dioxide’s volatility and its tendency to easily accept electrons allow it to effectively attack pathogens. Pathogens are electron donors (they give away electrons easily), so when a chlorine dioxide ion reaches a pathogen, it takes up to 5 of the pathogen’s electrons, thus resulting in a microscopic semi-explosion that destroys the pathogen. Chlorine dioxide only activates upon contact with acidic, positively charged ions in the body, meaning that healthy cells with a pH of 7 or above are safe from the effects. Cancer cells are affected by chlorine dioxide because of their acidity. [1]


It should be noted that chlorine dioxide itself is an oxidizer, and not itself the “cure”. It effectively damages and kills harmful cells, cleansing the body of elements that are causing sickness, therefore allowing the body’s healthy cells to be able to do their jobs properly in helping the body to cleanse and heal itself. [2]


Patients may feel sick when taking chlorine dioxide because of the body’s actions resulting in expelling toxins. The harmful cells die after coming into contact with the chlorine dioxide ions, at which time toxins may be released into the system, resulting in the need for the body to expel the toxins. Depending on what the chlorine dioxide is treating and the individual’s own personal characteristics, the body’s response may be more or less intense. The chlorine dioxide itself will not become toxic; it turns into regular table salt inside the body within 2 hours after consumption. [1]


If an individual is healthy and has no pathogens, cancer cells, or other toxic cells in their body, chlorine dioxide will increase levels of hypochlorous acid in the body, which will strengthen the immune system. There are no ill effects if a healthy person takes chlorine dioxide [1].


Other Diseases Treated by Chlorine Dioxide


Chlorine dioxide is capable of treating a wide variety of other diseases, including (but not limited to) the following:





      Hepatitis A, B, and C


      Lyme disease


      Multiple sclerosis

      Parasitic infections

      Dengue fever


      Alzheimer’s Disease 


Other Important Information:

MMS can be used to cure Candida albicans infections, but it should be used in tandem with edible bentonite for more powerful results.


Catholic Bishops Ask for Authorization to Use MMS or CDS for COVID-19

According to an article in “Crux: Taking the Catholic Pulse”, one-third of the Catholic bishops in Ecuador asked President Lenin Moreno to authorize use of MMS / CDS to treat COVID-19 as an alternative medicine. Much of the rhetoric online about MMS and CDS talks about how it is “bleach” and should never be consumed, however, most people have consumed it already as a substance that’s used to purify water (buried in my luggage, for example, I have some chlorine dioxide tablets that I found leftover from many years ago. I purchased them for a long trip through India as water purifier before I knew anything about this substance as a treatment for diseases like COVID-19).

In the letter from the Ecuadoran bishops, they said that the restrictions on the use of MMS / CDS “does not favor the health of the sick, on the contrary, it harms it, preventing alternative medicines, such as chlorine dioxide, from being taken into account” as possible alternative treatment for coronavirus. Apparently, the Ministry of Health has been harassing employees, doctors, and small distributors of the substance (sounds familiar–the FDA harasses anyone who tries to sell  this stuff and educate people about how to use it too. They can’t get rid of it because it’s so important in water purification.). Read the “Crux” article, but be aware that the author spins the content and refers to the MMS and CDS as a “bleaching agent” rather than as a “water purification agent”. If you’re worried about consuming this substance, start first by preparing it according to the instructions on the label for water purification. Increase the amount/dose of MMS or CDS in the solution when you feel comfortable doing so.

Remember, water purification tablets or drops must be used properly (see above information about preparation and use of MMS / CDS). Do NOT take the tablets without properly preparing them into a CDS solution!
