MMS Used As a Chelation Agent
The first question that is likely to spring to mind now, is what exactly a chelation agent is. As I am not a
scientist, or at least a chemist, I take advantage of the definition, which appears
on the "Wikipedia" website:
"Chelants are chemicals that form soluble, complex molecules with certain metal ions,
inactivating the ions so that they cannot normally react with other elements or ions to produce precipitates or
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let's see how this has anything to do with illnesses and diseases.
First and foremost, the scientific community tends to be in agreement that the vast majority of diseases begin in a
person's gut. In my mind, this seems completely feasible, considering the gut incorporates the bowels, and as we
all know, this is where all the body's waste material passes through. In other words, this region of the body is
literally crammed full of pathogens and other toxic substances.
Now, the active ingredient within MMS, which is chlorine dioxide, just happens to
be a very effective chelant, or if you like, a very good chelation agent. Going back to the
definition at the top of the article, we can see that this means chlorine dioxide has a tendency to form complex
molecules with certain ions, and in so doing, those ions become deactivated. In other words, those ions which are
deactivated, no longer have to ability to react with other ions or molecules within the body.
Of course, on the surface, this would imply that chlorine dioxide could cause mayhem in the body if it going
around naturalizing everything it comes into contact with. Even though it sometimes appears as though Mother Nature
has a very twisted sense of humor, she shows us great kindness as well. One example of this is the fact that
virtually all know pathogens, as well as diseased tissue and etc. tend to have a pH lower than 7. Why exactly is
this peculiarity considered a display of kindness? In layman's terms, it's because the chlorine dioxide molecules
which are released into the bloodstream when you ingest MMS, will only react with substances in this sort of pH
Anything with a pH higher than 7 is perfectly safe, thus meaning healthy tissue is left well alone. To the
contrary, when the chlorine dioxide molecules come across something within your body that has a pH lower than 7,
they immediately take on the role of chelants, thus meaning they begin forming very complex molecules by stripping
away a number of electrons from each of the opposing substances they come into contact with, thereby rendering
those otherwise harmful substances neutral. With the pathogens now unable to continue on their destructive path,
the body is able to expel them through the natural waste removal process.
So, while this has only been a very basic rundown with regards to MMS being used as a chelation agent, it does
help to explain just why MMS has become so well known, and so highly respected.
