January Story of the Month

We normally do a “supplement” of the month. I’m calling this month’s post a “story,” because the stuff I talk about here isn’t proven to be safe for use as a supplement. I’ve taken it internally myself, but I certainly don’t suggest you do that – please consult a doctor. So, for the record, I’m officially NOT recommending you take this stuff internally!

The story begins with MMS. Many of you are familiar with MMS. There’s a chapter on MMS in my latest book. I think MMS is a very legit, important, interesting product. I won’t go into it here. But you should learn about it if you can. Again, MMS really isn’t supposed to be consumed internally according to the FDA and other health officials, so I won’t recommend that you consume it. I have, without problem. But I’m not a doctor. You need to consult a doctor, not me, on this. OK, so the legal disclaimer is out of the way.

When I got my foot infection which I’ve told you all about, I was desperate for relief and hundreds of supplements and ointments didn’t make a dent in it. So tough. But, my podiatrist started using this gel on my wound which had hypochlorous acid in it. It actually helped quickly. I was blown away. Hypochlorous Acid (which I’ll call HA from now on) is another industrial biocide, similar to MMS, which they use to clean and disinfect pools, sewers, etc.

Little did I know that Jim Humble and the other leaders of the MMS movement had also invented something they call MMS 2. Little did I know that MMS 2 was also HA! So, ironically, my podiatrist had been using (topically) an MMS 2 formula on my foot. Of course, she doesn’t call it MMS 2, that’s a special name coined by Jim Humble and his movement.

I figured if the MMS 2 (HA) was helping topically, why not take it internally? Jim Humble and his followers have written about it being used internally, and I spoke with some other people who had used it internally too. So, I began taking it internally. I won’t provide the instructions here, I’ll tell you why in a minute.

In any case, my conclusion is that I do not believe taking MMS 2 internally is safe. It gave me what I believe to be a bad eusophagus burn. I do not condone its use internally.

I was dissapointed that I could not use MMS 2 internally, as it seemed to be helping the foot. But upon further research, I discovered some other interesting information. MMS 2 is actually NOT HA, it is a precursor chemical to HA that is converted to HA when it touches water.

Interestingly, the product my podiatrist was using on my foot is much, much gentler. It is actual HA (not the precursor), but it is only a .02% concentration. So it is similar to MMS 2 but different because it is a much smaller concentration and it is the HA itself, not the precursor.

I also talked to a scientist who said consuming this .02 solution is much gentler than consuming MMS 2.

So, I started consuming the .02% HA solution. Not only did it help me tremendously, but I also noticed zero side effects. So, maybe I should coin the phrase “MMS 3” for this version of it? I won’t coin that, but it might be accurate because it is similar to MMS 1 and MMS 2, but different as well.

HA is a well studied chemical, and medicine has also used it extensively, so it’s a bit more accepted than MMS 1 and MMS 2, which are both fully rejected by mainstream medicine as very dangerous (and I personally would agree that MMS 2 is dangerous, though I haven’t had any problem with MMS 1). For example, here’s a scientific study which was published in the Wound Care Journal, which is absolutely fascinating. They don’t necessarily advocate using it internally, but when used on wounds, it helped the wounds heal. What’s fascinating about it though, is that it not only kills bugs, it also neutralizes their toxins, and allowed people who would normally lose limbs to necrotizing fasciatis, keep their limbs.

This is of course relevant to Lyme sufferers because we deal with not only bugs, but also toxins. Similarly, in my tetanus battle, it is the tetanus toxin that does the damage, so it’s the same situation. HA is very unique among biocides because of this dual ability. Furthermore, HA, similarly to MMS, also destroys biofilms and other organic debris.

So, what’s the moral of the story? For me, it goes something like this: I’ve used MMS 1 without problems, MMS 2 gave me lots of problems, but using HA in the diluted, .02% concentration, gave me no side effects and a lot of benefit.

Now, again, I don’t recommend that YOU do this. I was forced to experiment on myself because the tetanus situation really took me out. I think anyone else wanting to try this should ONLY do so under the care of a doctor. It’s not approved for use in humans, and I’m not a doctor. It’s important that I provide this legal disclaimer, because you need to know that this stuff isn’t medically “approved” for use, and I’m not medically qualified to tell you to use it.

The brand of HA I have been using without any perceptible side effects is called Briotech – you can get it on Amazon or on Briotech’s website. I have no financial connection or other incentive to recommend this product. The inventor claims that it is a much more pure product, without additives or preservatives, hence I chose this one for my internal use. But be advised: even the company itself does not condone using it internally, and the bottle says only “Topical Skin Spray.” There is NO safe and proven dosing schedule or established protocol for using it internally, and there may in fact be negative side effects which I haven’t experienced yet but which I may experience as long-term side effects. So again, don’t try this at home without consulting a doctor!

So, there you have it – another tidbit I’ve learned from this crazy tetanus situation. I have more to come – more things to share with you, more new products and lessons which I’ve learned from tetanus but which also have some applicability to Lyme disease research. Thanks for reading!

DISCLAIMER: The chemicals and products discussed in this article are NOT FDA APPROVED for internal use, and in fact may be dangerous or fatal. While I have personally experimented with them on my own body, I HAVE experienced some side effects, and I DO NOT recommend that you use these chemicals in your own body. Instead, I’m just sharing my own story. Please consult a doctor before you make any medical decisions – I am not a doctor.

    Hi Bryan, thanks for the interesting information on HA. Out of interest, what was your dosing schedule?

    Did you try bagging your foot with medical ozone?

  • Bryan Rosner

    Hi. Yes, I have tried that. I’ve also tried most of the other ways to apply ozone. It has HELPED, but hasn’t been quite enough. Everything I do seems to help, but not be quite enough. My best hypothesis is that the tetanus bug’s nasty toxin has caused the tissue to be diseased near the site. I’m considering hyperbaric oxgen at this point, as I haven’t tried that yet. Thank you.

  • Bryan Rosner

    Very sporadic. But usually 2-4 times per day. Please don’t try this at home without your doctor’s approval.

  • Thomas George

    Hi Bryan,

    Thanks for that and no, I absolutely won’t try it without doctor’s approval. And also out of interest, how much did you take per dose?

  • Steve Willett

    How is Briotech HOCL different from Microcyn that you recommended in Oct?

  • Bryan Rosner

    It doesn’t have other additive ingredients, just salt water. Also, in Oct, I hadn’t yet experimented with taking HOCL internally, so that’s a huge development, since the topical use is very limited in what it can accomplish. Again, though, I’m not a doctor, so consult one before you try anything.

    What about good old hydrogen peroxide? At the normal pharmaceutical concentration of 0.3% it is quite powerful topically. Some people can drink a diluted form (one capful in a glass of water) but others get nauseous. I would expect it to work much like hypochlorous acid, as an oxidizing agent. But I am surprised that either chemical would work on your foot after taking it by mouth – it would get diluted in the 20 liters or so of blood that human adults have circulating in their bodies, and not have an effective concentration by the time it travels from mouth to stomach to foot. Two more suggestions. First, there is a nanoparticulate form of silver prepared as a salve that might be effective against the bugs, but probably not against the toxins, and if the bugs are still in place they will continue making the toxins. Second, instead of simply wiping your foot with HOCl or H2O2, dampen a cotton pad with either chemical and tape it in place with wide duck tape, so you will have what amounts to a locally hyperoxygenated environment at the wound entrance 24/7. The bottom of your foot will wind up all wrinkly, but who cares? And good luck to you.
