Future Health Today offers Jim Humble's Miracle Mineral Supplement
The FDA Is Putting the Pressure On - Miracle Mineral Supplement may be disappearing
by N J Howell
If you have been wanting to try the Jim Humble health product called MMS, you still can but I don't know for how long. The FDA has issued a strong warning against Miracle Mineral Supplement, siting that it contains industrial bleach. Jim Humble holds that chlorine dioxide, what results when the MMS activator and citric acid are mixed, is NOT the same as bleach and is beneficial. FDA Warning on MMS. When reading this bear in mind that MMS users are typically putting one to three drops in a full glass of water.
I used to link an online source for the product but just received an email that stated the company was doing a "voluntary" recall of all MMS and would no longer be selling Miracle Mineral Supplement as a health supplement. I don't believe the recall was truly voluntary at all; I believe they withdrew the product for fear of further FDA interference.
I have strong concerns about misuse of this product. My biggest concern, which isn't even addressed or referred to in the FDA warning, is that LARGE doses, for someone with already weak kidneys, might not be wise. I used to read on forums of people drinking copious amounts of activated MMS and that's unfortunate but no easier to control than the person who takes three prescription pills instead of one, when the bottle says "take one".
In fact, were I to take MMS again I'd start with as little as one drop of activated MMS. Despite that concern, the fact that double blind studies have been done (and ignored by the FDA in their warning) that reported no ill effects from injesting chlorine dioxide and the many, many, many stories of people who say they have been helped by taking MMS, I cannot completely ignore this product.
Where to Buy the MMS Ingredients:
For those who want to try it, and until the FDA says otherwise, I'll continue to provide information on anyone having the product available, though, again, I urge anyone to read up on MMS and to avoid large doses.
One company still offering the original MMS formula and approved by Jim Humble to sell it is Future Health Today. Please visit the website for more information on MMS and how to order it.
In general, I've witnessed the FDA shutting down natural remedies all the time while passing prescription drugs that damage or kill. They recall those drugs later but in the meantime, so many suffer or die.
MMS has been misused, in ways that Jim Humble never approved, as evidenced by some of the forum posts. This is no different and no easier controlled than people abusing prescription drugs.
Pharmacists and doctors cannot know what a patient is going to do with a drug after they get it home; how can Jim Humble be held accountable for people taking copious amounts of MMS?
By the way, the ones I personally read about who took copius copious amounts still reported almost no ill effects beyond nausea or other detox symptoms that were temporary; I wonder if the same could be said of taking copious amounts of any prescription drug?
What is MMS?
MMS, or Miracle Mineral Supplement, is a detoxing formula that users (and developer Jim Humble) say may help the body rid itself of parasites, toxic miasms, bacterial residue, viral residue, etc. This product is not approved by the FDA for such use and no claims are made of such results.
The information on how MMS can help the body release toxins and detox is, at this point, very largely ancedotal although Jim Humble himself did quite a bit of documentation on the use of Miracle Mineral Supplement to treat malaria and other conditions and there has been a double blind clinical study (1982 -- oddly, that information has been removed from nih.gov)
