MMS is NOT a supplement!
The reason you would continue with maintenance doses is because we are constantly exposed to pathogens. Once the pathogen level gets too high, illness and symptoms present themselves. Once the pathogen level is lowered, the body's immune system can then handle the healing. It is not the mms doing the healing, per se. Miracle-Mineral-Supplement simply reduces the pathogen level so that the body can do its job.
All the best!
