I've been a long time tick host, lived in Germany and last Switzerland, travelled a lot through some european countries and caught most of the local ticks, as I had been straying around in the forests a lot. So no doubt that I must have been pretty loaded with all kinds of parasites. It took many years though to get a diagnosis, so starting from the first erythema migrans, I never have gotten any treatment whatsoever. Somehow I was able to ignore the symptoms by keeping myself active and by a few attempts to shape my immune system (for example with the famous kombucha tea).
However, I got caught in a series of heavy symptoms in the past few years that not only kept me from doing my job, finally I got the worst brain fog that I could every imagine (and I never have been of the depressed, pessimistic type). I was functioning no more, collapsed a few times and scared my dearest human beings around me. They all said my personality was flaky. Hospitals didn't find anything in my blood, except for a slight hint (when I begged them for a Lyme check), but not enough to get a proper treatment. Generally over all these years, I kept hearing: Well, you're ok, you're fit, what do you want from us? Maybe consider seeing a shrink...
So, before terminating myself because I couldn't take it any longer, I tried various forms of Sodium Chlorite solutions. I had read about MMS, but finally, I was advised by a special therapist, before I took the stuff.
So I began with the advised minimum dose of five drops...and BANG...I was heavily sick for one day. By now, after a 30 day test phase, I could say that the reaction was a heavy Herxheimer reaction to the toxine load and my wrecked constitution. So I could literally keep no food in myself, it splashed out regularely through all possible paths (pardon my descriptive language, my excuse is to not be a native speaker :-) )
While being seriously ill, I got aware of another reaction that I had noted earlier: It's a stinging, short pain that can occur anywhere in the body, and which goes away within a few seconds, then comes back for a few times. The Chlorine Dioxide obviously had triggered something in my head, and since then, it has done it a few times again, but with decreasing intensity.
After the last few times calling ralph by the white phone on that day, I slept a lot. Next day, the brain fog was gone, but my stomach and intestines felt wrecked. So I drank a lot of tea (which I kept inside, this time) and tried to detox myself with a few nutrition additives.
The day after, the brain fog was still gone. How could that be? I was even fit enough to make a walk. Before that, my knees didn't have any power whatsoever. Somehow, that bit of toxic gas inside my veins must have destroyed a lot of unhealthy stuff that made me sick.
So, since then I am on my little MMS protocol, tried it in various ways (activated, non activated) while monitoring my pH urine level, to see how I was doing with the acids. I have done a lot of research about the pros and cons, honestly I must say it appears to me as one of the least intrusive (let aside the heavy Herxheimer reactions) and best controlleable antibiotics so far.
However, I would not advise anyone to use MMS with a very wrecked immune system and without a therapist-advised strategy on how to get rid of all the toxic waste after the MMS reaction.
After all, I now have my lab diagnosis after more than 10 years of uncertainty, and the funny thing is: I don't care anymore. Needless to say that the doctors didn't know what MMS was. Their decision is still not made yet, but the chance is little, that I'll take their antibiotics advice, once they finally found their conclusion. My hope currently is, that MMS can get rid of the remaining garbage as well. Even if it doesn't, it got me out of the worst.
