Normally I am very particular about reading back on old posts and checking other info before I post but there is too much info that's confusing me and I'm hoping someone can give me an answer to the questions I have.
I read an old post that recommended Miracle-Mineral-Supplement post liver flushing to help cleanse the body and mop up the toxins released by flushing. I did this as I suffer from hair loss and my main reason for the flushing is to treat the hair loss and I'm not keen on it getting worse due to toxin release!
I didn't however, realise that it was also a pretty potent parasite killer. This is a positive as I definitely have parasite issues. I started my first dose today and have had a killer headache all day which I am presuming to be parasite die off. Can anyone shed any light on this? I have also read that Miracle-Mineral-Supplement can react with any heavy metals you may have in your body (which I suspect I do) and was also looking for some advice on whether it's better to clear the metals first or whether the MMS can help to do this.
Basically my purpose for taking it was to help cleanse my body and I don't want to take it if it's going to be heavy on my system. Yes I need parasite cleansing but I have other products that I can use for that if the MMS is too heavy on the body. I am wary of overloading my kidneys as I know that LF's are heavy on the kidneys and have read that MMS can be too.
Thanks for any advice that can be given on this subject.
How many drops did you take? And how as it activated?
Water or Juice for dilution?
MMS can help with a lot of things that you suggested.
Take back a couple drops.Do it slowly in the beginning.And see how things go. If well then add only one drop at time for at least few days.
If you feel its too heavy, then I would suggest Tom's system.
This is a sanitizing, upgrading your immune system which can can be very healing.
But you would have to do it for some months.
Or you could just put 2 drops in a liter of water or in your drink unactivated until you reach about 10-12 drops a day.
But always have yogurt in your diet daily.
What's important is how you feel about it and what you believe too.
You did not mention if you are male or female. But the most common cause of hair loss in men is high levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In women the most common cause is hypothyroidism, which is often missed by conventional lab tests. Women are more prone to hypothyroidism due to the risk of elevated estrogen levels, which interferes with thyroid function.
In either case elevated hormones, including DHT and estrogens, indicates a poorly functioning liver. One of the roles of the liver is to break down excess estrogens and androgens (progesterone, testosterone). Elevated cholesterol is also an indicator for a poorly functioning liver. By the way, I hear people all the time telling me that they had their livers checked with lab tests and it was working fine. The lab tests DO NOT indicate liver function. These are enzyme tests that look for liver damage, not function. Symptoms are a more effective means of determining function.
Anyway, the most effective ways of dealing with a poorly functioning liver is with B vitamins from food or supplements, and digestive bitters. The B vitamins aid the liver in detoxification, especially of hormones. Zinc can also help with hormones, especially DHT. Recommended dose of zinc is 50mg daily with a large meal. If you do not have enough food in your stomach this dose will make you quite nauseous. As for the bitters, they are sold in health food stores under names such as Grape Bitters and Swedish Bitters. These are very bitter tasting herbs. When they come in to contact with the bitter receptors on the back of the tongue the vagus nerve is stimulated. This is turn causes the liver to "flush". They get their name from their ability to increase stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes. They also work great for Gallstones due to the bile stimulation. Very small amounts are needed to work as the reaction is from a nerve stimulation. Therefore I recommend 1/2 dropper full 1 to 3 times daily and a lot of water throughout the day when using them. Start out slow and work up to more frequent doses.
Can Miracle-Mineral-Supplement react with heavy metals? I would say yes. It breaks down quickly in to a chloride. And chloride can react with mercury for example forming mercury chloride. There is also a cadmium chloride, arsenic chloride, lead chloride.....
The best way of dealing with heavy metals is with algins from seaweeds and pectins from fruits. Both are effective binders for heavy metals. Silica and calcium are also useful in displacing some heavy metals such as lead and aluminum. Amla berry is great to take during heavy metal detoxifications as it helps to protect the DNA from heavy metal damage.
Firstly my mms is in crystal form. It says to start with 1/4 teaspoon twice a day. I just had one dose as I had such an awful headache from it.
Secondly I am female and have had thyroid tests which appear to be fine. I will investigate the herbs you suggest soon, particularly regarding heavy metals. So chlorella/spirulina, that sort of thing? I take chlorella occassionally but not religiously. I removed quite a lot of stones and flukes from my Liver Flush so I'd say that plays a huge part in my poor liver function and subsequent hair issues (whether it be DHT or thyroid). Fingers crossed it works!
Hey wait a minute! Stop right there. Dont take this crystal form. Quarter spoon?!? Are you sure this soduim cloriTe? Maybe this is NOT Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , or you still have to make Miracle-Mineral-Supplement .
Attention with the 'T'.Please write what the ingredients say on the label and percentage too. And where did you get this from?
If Miracle-Mineral-Supplement is in a crystal form then it is not likely chlorine dioxide as they claim. Chlorine dioxide is a gas, but is highly soluble in water. I have never heard of chlorine dioxide existing in a crystal form.
Thyroid tests are notorious for missing cases of hypothyroidism. There are several reasons for this but it will take a lot more typing to explain these reasons than I prefer to do right now. I would estimate though that hypothyroidism is missed probably 80 to 90% of the time with conventional lab tests. Symptoms are a much more accurate way to determine thyroid function. In particular an abnormally low body temperature. To determine this do your basal body temperature each morning for at least a week. Your average should be 97.6 or higher. Instructions can be easily found on the web. Add this to other symptoms which can include weight gain, dry hair and skin, fatigue, slow pulse, constipation, mental fogginess, insomnia, cold intolerance, etc. and you can be about guaranteed to have hypothyroidism. Keep in mind though that all of these symptoms are not always present. For example, a person can be hypothyroid and still be very thin. And many of these symptoms can also be caused from other things, such as adrenal fatigue. The low body temperature is the biggest giveaway.
Chlorella is great for heavy metal binding, but not spirulina. I actually like chlorella better than spirulina for several reasons including the chlorella growth factor.
A good way to determine the possible cause of your hair loss is to consider where it is coming out. DHT causes "male pattern baldness". There is a greater number of DHT receptors on the upper front, on top, and upper back of the skull. SO the hair will fall out in these areas creating the patterned loss. Starting primarily from the temple area and top back and progressing. In hypothyroidism the hair loss is more random. Hope that helps.
Yes I do suffer from low-ish body basal temperature. About 36C. I'm not sure what that is in Fahrenheit but I know that it is meant to be about 36.7 or thereabouts.
I also suffer from cold hands and feet and most of the other symptoms you say plus the hair loss. I have often suspected thyroid problems but since results don't show was never sure what to do about it. What is a good remedy for it. Iodine in kelp form potentially?
My hair loss is a little "male" like in that there is crown loss, and loss right through to the ears and a little across the top. I have suspected DHT problems for awhile also. Again, not sure what to do about it. I've sort of prayed that fixing my liver would help with all of the above problems.
I really appreciate all the assistance. I feel like I'm floundering around really unsure of what to do! Is DHT caused hair loss reversible?
Now the bad news. Hypothyroidism has numerous causes. Hypothalamus or pituitary dysfunction, hormone imbalances, low iodine, exposure to chlorine, fluorine or bromine compounds, chronic stress, poor T4 to T3 conversion, high rT3 levels, Hashimoto's thyroidosis.... Kelp, or iodine, will not work in all cases. And it will be hard to say for sure what is causing the problem. Sometimes it just takes experimentation to find what will work. Based on what you have said though I would still focus on cleansing the liver with bitters and B vitamins first. Although taking kelp is not going to hurt. In fact it is a good source of natural B vitamins. So is nettle leaf (also directly supports the thyroid), rice bran oat bran, nutritional yeast, and bee pollen. Ashwagandha is also excellent for the thyroid, as it supports the adrenals, which have a feedback with the thyroid, and increases T4 to T3 conversion.
Thanks for your advice. I very much appreciate it. Maybe I will watch the temp for a bit and after some more liver cleansing if it has not gone up I will try kelp. There are definitely thyroid problems in my family so it has always been lingering in the background for me.
What is a good temp, the lowest that it should really be?
I don't have a problem with MSM other than some of the false claims made about it. For example the claim that it is all natural. Commercial MSM is produced by heating the synthetic solvent dimehtylsulfoxide (DMSO), a byproduct of the paper making industry. Heating DMSO adds an oxygen atom forming DMSO2, otherwise known as MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane).
MSM is 34% sulfur by weight. Once in the body it is broken down in to elemental sulfur, which is then used to produce collagen and elastin, insulin, detoxify the body, etc. So it is good stuff, though I still prefer to use elemental sulfur or to get my sulfur from herbs and diet.
MSM is a sulphur compound..
DO NOT take MSM at least within 4 hours of the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement .
I just had a bad reaction to DMSA a strong sulphur compound, with the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement ...and the scientific proof is in another recent post..they DO interact.
If I were you, I would take the MMS on days you do not take the MSM.
But that is me...
Thyroid tests almost ALWAYS come back normal. You should have a private lab conduct Free T3 and T4 tests...and if you are in a lower percentile, then chances are your thyorid is low.
Do not realy on regular western med tests for your thyroid.
