i read over my posts and thought maybe i didnt answer your question clearly ---
you asked if you should start taking mms internally while herpes is dormant or active... the answer is== it really doesnt matter. JUST TAKE Miracle-Mineral-Supplement ! start small and work your way up as you go.
what is confusing you? the mms protocol or this entire herpes ordeal?
if it is the mms protocol --then what about it confuses you? we can all help sort that out --so just ask
and be sure to download mms book 1 and 2 and read them. also go to adam abrahams podango (do a search) radio talk show "talk for food" and listen about mms.
