What is whooping cough? 

Whooping cough is a serious bacterial infection that causes intense coughing fits and trouble breathing. It is highly contagious and is spread through the air. Though a vaccine does exist for whooping cough and is routinely administered in many developed countries, unvaccinated individuals are still at particularly at risk of infection (even vaccinated people may still catch the disease since the vaccine is, of course, not 100% effective in all cases).


The whooping cough infection is caused by the Bordetella pertussis bacteria, which enters the body through the nose or throat and then attaches itself to the cilia along the upper respiratory tract (the cilia are small, hair-like structures whose job is to remove bacteria, mucus, and other foreign materials from the lungs and respiratory tract). After attaching itself to the cilia, the B. pertussis bacteria releases a toxic substance, thus causing a reaction in the respiratory system involving swelling and general damage to the cilia. This damage means that the body is now also more vulnerable than normal to other infections or respiratory issues since the cilia are unable to do their job to protect the respiratory system from mucus build up or other external pathogens. 


Though babies are at the highest risk of contracting a pertussis infection, anyone of any age could catch whooping cough. Still though, infants also experience the highest mortality rates after catching the infection.


Symptoms of Whooping Cough

The symptoms of whooping cough vary somewhat depending on the age of the individual with the infection, however there are some that are nearly always the same. There are only rare cases when a person won’t know that they’re infected, though many teenagers and adults have significantly less severe symptoms than younger children and infants. For this reason, it’s important to be extra aware if you have a small child at home and think you may have been exposed to whooping cough, since the symptoms for older people generally present themselves similarly to a common cold. There are cases when older people may experience a more serious version of the illness, but generally, the symptoms are worse in younger people than older people (with exceptions). 


Below I’ve listed the most common symptoms of whooping cough: 

  • Early symptoms (about 1-2 weeks following initial infection; this stage is also known as the “catarrhal stage” of the illness)
    • Low fever
    • Runny nose
    • Sneezing
    • Mild cough
    • Apnea (this symptom is specifically seen in infants – an apnea is where the child will stop breathing suddenly for periods of time)
  • Later-stage symptoms (this period is known as the “paroxysmal stage” and usually lasts between 1-6 weeks, though in some more serious cases it can last up to 10 weeks; the symptoms below, especially the coughing, tend to become more frequent and intense the longer that this stage lasts)
    • Coughing fits consisting of fast-paced coughs followed by a high-pitched “whoop” sound after each cough (these fits are also known as “paroxysms”)
    • Vomiting (particularly following a coughing fit)
    • Exhaustion (also usually following a coughing fit)
    • Weight loss
  • Recovery symptoms (also known as the convalescent stage; this period of recovery usually lasts between 2-3 weeks)
    • Gradually less and less coughing
    • Lowered immunity
    • Increased sensitivity to other respiratory infections in particular
    • Return of coughing fits if a different respiratory infection occurs during recovery


CDS/MMS Protocols and Treatment Options for Whooping Cough

Read the corresponding articles about each of the CDS protocols listed below carefully. I’ve listed out a few potential protocol options for the treatment of whooping cough using MMS, but keep in mind that you DO NOT have to use all of these here. This testimonial regarding the successful treatment of pertussis using MMS alone may be helpful for some readers. Make sure to read this whole section before deciding which protocol(s) to go with depending on your situation. 



The Lung Protocol Using Chlorine Dioxide Gas

A word of caution: The Lung Protocol should be followed VERY CAREFULLY and EXACTLY as the instructions in the article describe. Don’t get creative. Breathing CDS gas can be extremely powerful for the treatment of respiratory illnesses like whooping cough, but it can be damaging if done incorrectly. If you follow the instructions outlined in the article in the link above, however, you’re unlikely to experience any negative consequences. 


Infants will not be able to do this protocol. Small children generally should not do this protocol either because it requires them to stop breathing at a particular moment that THEY must determine themselves. Older children, teenagers, and adults are the best candidates for the Lung Protocol. 


This protocol involves breathing the chlorine dioxide gas from an activated drop of MMS1 directly into the lungs and nasal passages. When combined with other protocols like those listed below, it can be extremely effective. Because whooping cough is a serious, potentially life-threatening respiratory illness, the Lung Protocol can be considered (I wouldn’t, however, recommend using this protocol for just any old cold or regular flu infection… it’s reserved for serious respiratory illnesses only).


The Chikungunya and Dengue Fever Protocol

Though these are both viral, mosquito-borne infections, the protocol used for the treatment of these is an option for the treatment of whooping cough. This protocol involves a combination of the Protocol 6 and 6 and the Classic Protocol 1000 to treat the pertussis infection. The Protocol 6 and 6 gives the body larger doses of the CDS medicine in order to “pack a punch” against the illness, while the Classic Protocol 1000 helps restore health gradually and prevent reinfection (while also ensuring that the pertussis infection is indeed gone). 


This protocol can be done for people of any age, including small children and infants. Follow the dosing instructions for children described in the article (the dosage amounts are based on weight, make sure to follow these closely). 


The Protocol 3000

This protocol may be easier to administer for small children or infants who are not able (or unwilling) to take the MMS1 solution internally. It involves applying MMS1 solution with DMSO to the skin multiple times per day to treat infection. The DMSO in this protocol helps ensure that the MMS1 can get into the bloodstream effectively. As long as your child’s skin isn’t overly sensitive, consider applying the MMS1 solution to the neck, chest, or upper back to try and deliver the medicine in closer proximity to the infection. However, if their skin in these areas is too sensitive, it’s okay to apply the MMS1 solution to another area (the DMSO will help the medicine get to where it needs to go in the body). 



Nose Protocol

The Nose Protocol is specifically designed to deliver MMS1 directly to the nose and nasal cavities. Because the pertussis bacteria may have taken up residence in these areas, the Nose Protocol can be a helpful adjunct CDS protocol for whooping cough treatment. It should be administered in combination with one of the other protocols in the list, however, to maximize its ability to heal and kill the bacteria. 


Infants, children, and adults can all do this protocol. Be aware that if you administer this protocol to a younger child or an infant in particular that it does sting to put MMS up inside the nose as is done in this protocol. But, this is normal and expected. It will pass. If the stinging seems persistent or if the child’s nasal passages get dry, use a simple saline spray in the nose to rehydrate the tissues (this is likely to stop the stinging, as well, if needed). 


Protocol 1000 Plus

The Protocol 1000 Plus involves taking activated MMS combined with DMSO every day for 8 hours per day over the course of 3 weeks. The Classic Protocol 1000 may also be a valuable treatment for whooping cough (particularly for adults or individuals whose infection isn’t as severe), but the Protocol 1000 Plus is somewhat stronger which is why we’re recommending it first. This protocol can be administered to anyone of any age as long as you follow the dosing rules according to body weight (children and infants will require a smaller dose). 


How to Prevent a Whooping Cough Infection with MMS/CDS

In order to understand how you can prevent a whooping cough infection, it’s helpful to understand a few details of how the disease is transmitted. First of all, the infection spreads through the air and people who are close proximity to infected individuals (and who share breathing space), or people who are exposed to someone who is infected and coughing or sneezing, are the ones most likely to catch the disease. Most of the time, infected individuals remain contagious for approximately 2 weeks after the cough begins (keep in mind that some people don’t have a significant cough or even any symptoms at all, but they can still be contagious). The disease can infect infants, children, teenagers, and adults of any age.


If you’re traveling abroad, if someone in your family or close circle has recently been infected with pertussis, or if an outbreak has occurred in the area where you’re living, then preventative measures against infection with this bacteria are important. CDS can be used to effectively prevent infection with whooping cough (or minimize the severity of the infection if you do still happen to be infected). It can be used for people of any age (including infants and young children in the proper dosages) and is easy to travel with. 


To prevent a pertussis infection, consider the following MMS/CDS protocols: 


The Maintenance Protocol – This is the simplest prevention protocol and can be used to prevent a wide array of illnesses, including not only whooping cough, but also other contagious diseases that may be floating around near you or your loved ones. The Maintenance Protocol involves taking a single, smaller dose of activated MMS or MMS2 on a daily or every-other-day basis. This protocol would be the best choice if you’re traveling abroad and haven’t necessarily been actively exposed to whooping cough yet, but want to improve your immunity and put up a kind of “boundary” between you and a possible infection. 


Protocol 6 and 6 – Use this protocol if you think that you or your loved one may have been exposed directly to someone infected with whooping cough. If you’re doing the Maintenance Protocol already, the Protocol 6 and 6 is more likely to be effective, however you may use it even if you haven’t been doing the Maintenance Protocol. The Protocol 6 and 6 may be used in any case where you’re worried that you’ve been exposed to a serious disease and want to try to prevent infection as soon as possible. 


Dental Health Protocol – Because the pertussis bacteria likes to take up residence in the upper respiratory system, anything you can do to kill/neutralize pathogens present in your mouth or nose will be valuable for prevention, particularly when paired with one of the two protocols above. The Dental Health Protocol is a daily protocol, similar to the Maintenance Protocol, and again, may be done by people of all ages. Consider gargling with some MMS1 solution as well to round out your Pertussis Prevention Protocol. 


Nose Protocol Because the nasal passages and sinuses are intimately connected with the rest of the upper respiratory system, getting MMS up into the nose can be valuable for prevention if you’ve recently been exposed to someone whom you suspect may have whooping cough. Do the Nose Protocol for about 4-5 days following exposure to the infection in addition to the Protocol 6 and 6 mentioned above and other relevant preventative therapies.
