Chapter 2: The Elements of This Protocol

What Is DMSO?

This treatment includes DMSO, which is technically called: dimethyl sulfoxide. DMSO is a purely natural product from the wood industry. Many, many millions of people have used DMSO around the world. Not one person has died from its use.

DMSO targets cancer cells and “opens” the ports on the cancer cells, which in turn allows chlorine dioxide to get inside of the cancer cells to kill the microbes which are inside the cancer cells.

DMSO also “binds” to certain chemicals and experiments have indicated that chlorine dioxide is one such molecule. This means the DMSO doesn't just open up the cancer cell ports to chlorine dioxide, but it also drags the chlorine dioxide inside the cancer cells.

As already mentioned, if you kill the microbe(s) inside the cancer cells, the cells will revert into being normal cells without any type of debris from dead cancer cells. Thus, there is no swelling or inflammation caused by dying cancer cells. In fact, DMSO is known to help reduce swelling and inflammation.

But regardless of how many cancer cells it reverts into normal cells, what is known is that DMSO with chlorine dioxide will kill any microbes in the blood and thus will help build the immune system. Furthermore, by purely chemical means chlorine dioxide will help build the immune system in other ways.

What Is Chlorine Dioxide?

Chlorine dioxide is made from sodium chlorite, otherwise known as stabilized oxygen. The stabilized oxygen product normally used to make chlorine dioxide is called the Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS). Stabilized oxygen has been used in alternative medicine for over 70 years to prevent colds and the flu.

Chlorine dioxide has been studied by scientists for many years and has been mentioned in many scientific journals. However, it was Jim Humble who brought chlorine dioxide to the forefront of alternative medicine.

Jim used 15 drops of chlorine dioxide (meaning 15 drops of MMS plus the activator), followed one hour later by another 15 drops, to cure malaria. AIDS/HIV can also be cured with chlorine dioxide, though the administration of chlorine dioxide for AIDS uses injections. However, using this article to treat AIDS may be just as effective as injections. This article will help keep the AIDS virus from traveling through the blood. The Bob Beck Protocol, which is known to cure AIDS in 21 days, only cleaned the blood once a day. This protocol cleans the blood continuously for twelve hours.

Another thing Jim Humble discovered is that chlorine dioxide can be made at home by mixing stabilized oxygen (i.e. sodium chlorite) with an “activator.” It is the “activator” which converts the sodium chlorite into chlorine dioxide.

Normal stabilized oxygen (e.g. Vitamin O, Aerobic O7 or Aerobic KO7) is usually between 3 percent and 7 percent sodium chlorite. This is NOT the same thing as table salt, which is sodium chloride.

However, the Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) is 28 percent sodium chlorite. The reason for this mixture is so that it will react more readily to the “activator” to make chlorine dioxide.

Vendors may sell bottles which recommend adding MMS to some form of vinegar. This is old technology. DO NOT USE VINEGAR WITH MMS. Vinegar can actually feed yeast infections.

The three things you can mix with MMS are (these are the three activators):
1) 10 percent or 50 percent citric acid (in liquid form or a powder form converted into liquid form), or
2) fresh squeezed lemon juice, which you squeeze yourself (filter out the particles), or
3) fresh squeezed lime juice, which you squeeze yourself (filter out the particles)

Any of these three items will chemically react to the sodium chlorite to create chlorine dioxide. The 50 percent liquid citric acid is the highly preferred item to mix with MMS for reasons to be understood in the next chapter. Citric acid can be purchased over the Internet in liquid form or powdered form. If purchased in powdered form, it must be converted to liquid form before use. MMS should always be purchased from the vendor of MMS. MMS vendors have a high turnover of citric acid, thus the product is always fresh.

The things you should NOT mix with sodium chlorite are just as important as the things you should mix with it. For example, do NOT use any type of bottled lemon juice, such as ReaLemon, as it may have vitamin C added as a preservative.

The highly preferred method is to use 50 percent citric acid, purchased from a vendor of MMS.

When making chlorine dioxide, only one drop of 50 percent citric acid is used for each drop of MMS. The reason this is recommended is because for transdermal (through the skin) use of DMSO/Chlorine Dioxide this mixture will penetrate the skin much easier than using anything else. This is because less water must be carried through the skin by the DMSO.

Also note the Miracle Mineral Supplement bottle should NOT be exposed directly to sunlight.

While you can buy chlorine dioxide over the internet, this website strongly recommends that you make it yourself at home from sodium chlorite (i.e. MMS). Chlorine dioxide is a gas, and will not remain within water for more than a couple of hours. You should make it at home fresh every time you use chlorine dioxide just to make sure you are getting the maximum effect possible from the product.

Let me repeat that last statement to make sure the reader understands this issue. Chlorine dioxide does not remain stable for more than a couple of hours, and because there is one hour between treatments, a significant amount of the chlorine dioxide may evaporate into the air if you use the same mixture twice in a row. In other words, the chlorine dioxide must be made FRESH each time it is used.

Items That Can Neutralize Chlorine Dioxide

This treatment can easily be neutralized by Vitamin C, immune builders, herbs, Protocel, Cantron, and other antioxidants. Because it is so sensitive to other substances, this treatment should not be used with other alternative cancer treatments. Even Cellect includes immune builders which can neutralize this treatment. Do not use any of these products, or any other supplements which contain antioxidants (including do not use multivitamins, herbs, etc.), at the same time as this treatment.

The following information from the Bill Henderson Newsletter will clarify these points:

  • They had started with just 2 drops of the MMS and worked up to a dose of 15 drops, twice a day. for ten days. There was no noticeable effect — no nausea, no diarrhea — nothing. They were aware of the effect of Vitamin C on the MMS, so they had moved the Heart Plus and Daily Advantage to later in the day.They did some research, though, and found that the Beta 1,3D Glucan immune stimulant is a strong antioxidant also. They were taking it at roughly the same time as the MMS. As soon as they stopped taking the Beta Glucan for a couple of days, the MMS had an immediate effect — diarrhea, cleansing — the whole thing. …
    (Chemist) I am a chemist who bought your (previous edition) book and am receiving your e-newsletter (and I have cancer). I am not surprised to finally read in letter #114 that antioxidants ‘kill' MMS. They should. And that’s what I have been telling a friend of mine who has lung cancer. However, antioxidants stay in the body for more than three hours. Ideally, if you have enough protection, you should have a more or less permanent steady state of them. The beta-glucan instance, where the people waited three DAYS, certainly suggests this also. I am not sure what the solution to the problem is, but if I were taking MMS (and I intend to) I would stop all antioxidants for a while to let the MMS work unhindered.” (Bill Henderson) As I mentioned in my last newsletter, the MMS is still in an experimental stage. I would certainly heed Robert Peterson's advice. At least try discontinuing your use of the Beta Glucan, the Heart Plus, and the Daily Advantage for a couple of weeks while you take the MMS. You need to be the judge of whether it is working for you. If you experience the normal MMS diarrhea after you stop the antioxidants, then it is probably working for you. This should not continue for long (a day or so). Then, you should begin to have normal bowel movements with no constipation.
    Bill Henderson Newsletter

In other words, do NOT use the chlorine dioxide protocol at the same time as any substance which has Vitamin C, or any other antioxidant, including immune builders. Wait at least three hours after discontinuing these treatments before starting the chlorine dioxide treatment. It may be that immune builders need a couple of days, I don't know. But normally the wait is only three hours.

The “Cancer Diet”

Any time you use a protocol which is designed to kill microbes it is very, very critical to avoid eating foods and drinks which feed or excite the microbes. This includes cancer because cancer is a microbial disease.

An acidic diet of foods and drinks will make this protocol less effective because microbes will breed much faster and be more aggressive in the presence of an acidic diet. In other words, the microbes will breed faster than you can kill them. This includes the microbes which are inside the cancer cells.

What this means is that without a solid “cancer diet” there is no way this cancer protocol, or any other cancer protocol, is going to be effective. The “cancer diet” is also the number one way to stop the spreading of cancer.

An alkaline diet includes, among other things:
1) ZERO sugar,
2) ZERO white flour,
3) ZERO soda pops (even diet soda pops are forbidden),
4) ZERO meat,
5) ZERO dairy products,
and so on.

After eliminating all the foods that feed or excite microbes, what is left over is basically whole foods, whole fruits, vegetable drinks and other healthy foods and drinks.

During the twelve hours a day of this protocol, very little should be eaten and virtually no liquids should be taken (except in cases where a person needs liquids to stay awake while driving or for some other valid reason).
