#1 PNEUMONIA TREATMENT – Chlorine Dioxide Solution (CDS) and DMSO Protocol
DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE OR INJURY.
Chlorine dioxide solution (CDS) is a front-line treatment for any and all kinds of pneumonia. As one of the least toxic and most broad spectrum medicines there is (besides dimethylsulfoxide/DMSO), CDS can treat bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic pneumonia, including drug-resistant types, in adults and children of all ages and in all situations. While there are some ground rules to follow with CDS treatment (we recommend reading “The Layperson’s Guide to Chlorine Dioxide and Miracle Mineral Solution” for details on how to administer CDS safely and successfully), this is one of best places to start when treating a case of infection-caused pneumonia.
There are a few different protocols that would work best for the treatment of infectious pneumonia (click on the links to learn more about how to administer each one):
- Protocol 1000 PLUS – This protocol includes both CDS and DMSO in a powerful treatment that targets all kinds of pathogens. The DMSO strengthens the CDS medicine in addition to having its own healing benefits. It can be given to adults, children, the elderly, and women who are pregnant or lactating.
- The Lung Protocol – This should only be used for adults and older children (no younger than age 10, and only under strict adult supervision). It can have miraculous and positive results when done correctly, but be absolutely sure to read the instructions for this protocol a few times before starting since doing it incorrectly can lead to lung damage. There’s a careful balance with this specific protocol.
- Protocol 3000 – This protocol can be administered with or without DMSO depending on your preference. Like the Protocol 1000 PLUS, it can be administered to anyone of any age. This protocol is administered by rubbing the CDS on the skin rather than drinking it internally, so it may be a better choice for people who can’t stand the flavor of CDS or can’t keep down liquids very well, and for small children and infants.
- Jim Humble’s Malaria Protocol – This protocol is specifically for the treatment of malaria. Since malaria can cause pneumonia in some cases, this protocol deserves a special mention (and, in addition, the Malaria Protocol may be valuable in other situations too). It can be used for people of all ages as long as the dosing rules are followed carefully.
Always start with the Starting Protocol before beginning any CDS protocol, especially if you’ve never taken CDS before. Be sure to drink plenty of water, give yourself time to rest if you need it, and eat healthfully i
f you can. Read more about how to use CDS/MMS and DMSO successfully in our book series on these two medicines:
Nebulization Protocols for Infectious and Non-Infectious Pneumonia
Nebulizing is an important treatment for all different kinds of lung diseases and infections, including pneumonia. There are a few different nebulization protocols that may benefit a person suffering from pneumonia (these treatments are also effective for other active respiratory infections and some other lung diseases). I’ll discuss each of these nebulizer treatments below:
Hydrogen Peroxide Nebulization Protocol
Hydrogen peroxide nebulization is a valuable part of an oxidant protocol for pneumonia treatment. This would go well with a CDS/MMS protocol since hydrogen peroxide is also a Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) medicine, and therefore will not dampen the effects of the CDS medicine. You should never nebulize CDS/MMS, but you CAN nebulize food-grade hydrogen peroxide when you prepare the solution correctly. This way, you can use ROS medicine to target pathogens that may be living in the lungs or respiratory system.
Hydrogen peroxide can be nebulized by anyone of any age. Children, the elderly, pregnant women, and lactating women can all safely use this protocol for the treatment of pneumonia.
You will need 3% food-grade hydrogen peroxide solution and saline solution to administer this nebulization protocol. Follow the instructions below to administer hydrogen peroxide for pneumonia treatment:
- Combine 3ml of 0.9% medical-grade saline solution with 5 drops (0.21ml) of 3% food-grade hydrogen peroxide solution in a glass container.
- Put the solution you made into the nebulizer reservoir and begin nebulizing right away. Nebulize for 10 minutes.
- Continue to nebulize with this solution only once a day until symptoms resolve.
Lugol’s iodine is a kind of ANTIoxidant, so it should not be done at the exact same time that you take CDS/MMS. If you’re doing an MMS protocol for pneumonia treatment, wait until at least 1.5 hours after your last MMS dose to administer Lugol’s iodine in a nebulizer to make absolutely sure that these two medicines don’t accidentally cancel each other out.
Iodine is able to kill/neutralize pathogens of all kinds in addition to helping detoxify heavy metals from the body. In the form of Lugol’s iodine (a special iodine preparation that combines potassium iodide with molecular iodine), this medicine can safely be nebulized to deliver the medicine directly to the lungs. It’s important to only use Lugol’s iodine for this treatment (don’t use Betadine/povidone iodine, or the kind of iodine that you can get at the pharmacy).
Like hydrogen peroxide, Lugol’s iodine nebulization is also safe for people of all ages and in all life situations.
Follow these instructions to nebulize with Lugol’s iodine solution as a pneumonia treatment:
- Combine 1 drop of 2% Lugol’s iodine solution with 1 full shot glass of purified water.
- Add this mixture to the nebulizer reservoir and nebulize for 15 minutes or until the solution is used up.
- Repeat this method 3-5 times per day until your symptoms resolve (make a fresh dose of solution each time you nebulize; iodine evaporates quickly, so use the solution you make right away).
Parasite Cleanse Basics for Parasitic Pneumonia
IMPORTANT NOTE – Some of the medicines below may not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and should be used with caution in children. If a person has been diagnosed with parasitic pneumonia and falls into one of these categories, they should consider CDS/MMS as a treatment option instead since this medicine can be used safely for everyone.
If you’ve been diagnosed with any kind of parasitic pneumonia, a systemic parasite cleanse is one of the first steps to recovery (besides starting a CDS/MMS protocol like one of those listed above; note that CDS/MMS can also treat parasite infections). I’ve included clickable links to products that we recommend for this cleanse below. Here is the basic parasite cleanse protocol (read more at this link for detailed instructions):
- Take the following herbs daily (start with a slightly lower dose, and increase the dose every 2-3 days until you reach these dosages recommended below)
- Wormwood and Black Walnut Tincture – 20 drops, 4 times per day
- Black Walnut Tincture – 7/10 of a dropperful, 4 times per day
- Clove Tincture – 4/10 of a dropperful, 4 times per day
- Wormwood Capsules – 100mg, 4 times per day, plus one additional dose immediately before bedtime
- L-Ornithine – Take 3 capsules of 500mg each before bedtime with your final dose of all of the above herbs.
- Take 1 tablespoon of food-grade Diatomaceous Earth mixed with water in the morning and in the evening (do not accidentally inhale this!).
- Take 1 teaspoon of food-grade Bentonite Clay mixed with water (make sure to drink plenty of water on this cleanse) once in the morning and once in the evening. Do not take this with ANY other supplements. You must take it separately from everything else.
- Take moringa each day. This is your “multivitamin”.
- Adopt a diet with the following qualities:
- No sugar!! Even raw honey and authentic maple syrup should be avoided. Especially pay close attention to avoiding white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, rice syrup, and other similar ingredients.
- Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Grains are also permitted, but make sure they’re whole, unrefined grains, and limit them while you’re on this diet. Legumes, nuts, and seeds are also good.
- Add in extra amounts of these parasite-fighting foods:
- Take pyrantel pamoate once a month; you must take 3 doses over the course of 3 days in order for this to work. Follow the instructions on the bottle to dose it according to your body weight.
- Take albendazole or mebendazole once every other month. You can get this online as a veterinary medicine without a prescription. Again, take this for 3 consecutive days according to the correct dosage based on your bodyweight. (NOTE: You will experience a die-off reaction after taking these last two medications in particular, and may not feel well for up to 5 days afterwards, so prepare to take extra good care of yourself).
Dr. Hulda Clark’s Zapper is a good follow-up treatment to use after the initial parasite cleanse. The Zapper is a vibrational therapy that uses resonant frequencies to kill hard-to-reach parasites as well as other pathogens (bacteria, viruses, etc). It can be used at home or in a clinic if you know of a practitioner who can administer the treatment (though in most cases, at-home use is more common).
Nutritional Deficiencies and Pneumonia Severity
People who develop lung problems tend to also have certain nutritional deficiencies. In some cases, these deficiencies are the actual cause of the problem or disease (such as how selenium deficiency causes cystic fibrosis), while in other cases, deficiencies can make an existing problem or disease more severe. This seems to be the case with pneumonia.
In children with Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections, studies have shown that vitamin A deficiency in particular is related to a more severe presentation of pneumonia. Vitamins D and E also tend to be deficient in people who develop respiratory infections and/or lung disease, and the same study observed that children with severe bacterial pneumonia infections were also more likely to be deficient in these nutrients, too.
To supplement with these fat-soluble vitamins, take these notes into consideration when choosing supplements:
- Vitamin A can be supplemented most safely using beta-carotene supplements (excess beta-carotene is simply excreted in the urine, making it a safer choice than retinol, the “pre-formed” type of vitamin A).
- Vitamin E is available in both synthetic and natural forms. The natural forms tend to be a bit more expensive, but they also work better in the body and don’t cause any side effects, even in high doses. D-alpha tocopherol is the natural form (look for this in the ingredient label on the vitamins). DL-alpha tocopherol is the synthetic form (avoid this kind, since it doesn’t have the same positive effects as the natural form).
- Vitamin D should almost never be taken in supplement form on its own. Instead of taking a vitamin D supplement on its own, get a supplement that combines vitamin D3 with vitamin K2 to ensure that the calcium that your body takes in ends up in your teeth and bones instead of in your arteries and veins (without vitamin K2, vitamin D directs the calcium you consume into soft tissues instead of into bones and teeth where it belongs). Eggs are another good source of vitamin D, and sitting in the sun after eating the Budwig Smoothie is a good way to get not only more vitamin D, but also the other fat-soluble vitamins.
- Vitamin C is another vitamin that, when taken in high doses, can help ward off the development of pneumonia and reduce its severity. More than one study has demonstrated that high dose vitamin C therapy at the onset of an infection can reduce the length of infection and help fight off bacteria, viruses, and fungi in particular. Children and adults of all ages can take vitamin C in high doses. Test your tolerance by taking in 1000mg at a time once every hour or two hours until you start to feel your stomach gurgle. This is your saturation level (the same rule applies for children and adults of all ages; some people may be able to take a lot of vitamin C before this happens, while others may need to take much less). Stay at this dose daily until you recover from the infection.
