Everyone talks about "detox" reactions but I don't really think that anyone really knows what's happening during those events.
I had a cold and fever during the first week to 10 days of beginning MMS which started after I began. Worst cold in several years. It's very common and you will see threads all over the MMS board with similar stories.
Was it detox? I doubt it. One of the few times in my life that I had to take antibiotics, but I did and it cleared it up. Antibiotics won't clear up "detox."
Nobody understands how the body operates and all that posters to MMS like myself can report in reality, is their own personal experiences and opinions - nothing medically evaluated, or if it is - it's very rare. Even the chair of the medical department of Oxford University made the statement that medicine doesn't know how the body functions (see Living Proof, Gearin-Tosh about how he cured terminal bone marrow cancer). Our body has many wonderful defenses that medicine doesn't understand, including the ability to wall off or even encapsulate germs and viruses. I have living tuberculosis cells in my body from TB that I contracted more than 70 years ago. I have never been medically treated for TB but have been medically diagnosed with having it and having had it. My body created tumors in my lungs with the live TB germs on the inside which has blocked it off from the rest of my body. (By the way, this is a common body reaction to TB.) This has been described to me by medical doctors and explains the tumors on my lungs. If MMS breaks down these protective walls, it can easily let all sorts of bacteria and viral infections loose. I'm not worried about it accessing the tumors in my lungs where I carry the TB - it just won't make it that far, but what other protections (besides the benefits) has MMS destroyed? Nobody can answer that.
I continue MMS at about 6 X 2 and will do so until I either see benefits, or more adverse reactions.
We have very different opinions regarding detox. I've done everything from long-term juice fasting, water fasting, h2o2 ingestion, UT therapy and many others and have had detox reactions several times. I even get a detox reaction if I go for two or three weeks without raw garlic, and then begin ingesting it.
Detox is toxins coming out. Antibiotics do not kill toxins. Toxins are everything from the heavy metals in your liver (which raw garlic grabs and carries out), to all the additives and pesticides that are in the food chain. They can cause some fever on the way out - but not a continuous one.
The body also protects itself by walling off invasive bacteria and viruses. (I have live TB germs in my lungs though I have not had active TB outside of the tumors that contain them for more than 70 years.) Nobody, but nobody knows or understands the effects of MMS on this aspect of the body. It is quite possible that MMS is tearing down the walls and releasing bacteria and viruses into the bodies system which can cause colds, flu, and a host of other things. In my case MMS was obviously not able to kill the output from that action, and I believe that's the case for others as well.
I hadn't had a cold or fever for at least three years until I began ingesting MMS. So my immune system was working very well in a cold environment, and I spend a great deal of time out-of-doors.
You and I can postulate all we want, but nobody knows what MMS really does (in spite of what the guy selling books thinks), we are all guinea pigs hoping for the best.
I don't have time for detox symptoms either. I did get mine at 2 and 3 drops per dose, twice a day, but am now up to 6 X 2 without any noticeable effects of any kind.
The only thing I'm even considering mixing with MMS is DMSO. Someone else on this forum is doing that. I've ingested DMSO by itself - and what a kick. They are doing drops, I did an ounce. Will probably start adding 6 drops of DMSO to 6 drops of MMS in a day or so, when I can get the courage. DMSO will be like adding a rocket to MMS - it goes directly into your system - through the skin, and carries with it anything it is mixed with.
Should be fun.
Thanks for the compliments. I truly am going to try DMSO with MMS. I was really shocked when I swallowed DMSO by itself a few months ago by how fast and explosive it went into my body - beginning at my tongue, cheeks, gums, and throat - and have been afraid to ingest it since that time. I have used it topically though with some good results for muscle soreness.
It's probably off-topic, but I'll mention it anyway. The biggest healing aspect that we have within ourselves is us as spirit. Not our mind, but our spirit. We are spirit, we are not our bodies. Spirit can heal - without medical help and with out alternative help, and I've experienced some of that - and I'm not talking religion, I'm talking self-healing by the spirit we have within ourselves. Also body and spirit can work together and that's what I see with the vast majority of everyone who is posting here on curezone. They aren't content to sit and let things happen but are searching for solutions to their own body problems that neither conventional wisdom or body only oriented therapies address. By working together body and spirit can accomplish a lot. I myself use conventional medical help for some things, but don't listen to every doctor or don't always follow the advice of those I do listen to. They are my highly paid body technicians and I've fired many of them, yet found a treasure or two in others while at the same time taking responsibility for my own care and making all final decisions myself.
