With Antibiotics , the pathogens have an opportunity to mutate into something that will resist them, lovingly called super bugs. Miracle-Mineral-Supplement (chlorine dioxide) is an ion receiver (really an aggressive ion taker). The bad pathogens are ion donators (whether they want to or not). So in this case, an Miracle-Mineral-Supplement molecule will totally destroy any SINGLE pathogen it touches. This will cause the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement molecule to transform too, destroying itself. The pathogen does not have time to learn how to mutate. It will be destroyed. Its neighbors won't know why either; because there be no trace of what existed before. Only the toxins are left. All of this is chemical; even though I'm talking about intelligence.
According to the Science of it, the chlorine dioxide will not kill any pathogen that does not have donor ions to give. That should include anaerobic pathogens that have a lower pH than 7. Your blood and other good things in your body are 7 or higher pH. It is not quite clear to me; but I believe that good flora or biotics have pH7 or higher as well. If you are concerned, you can take probiotics; but take them about an hour after MMS. You would do this if you were taking a lot of Colloidal Silver as well. Even olive leaf extract and oil of oregano will destroy the good bacteria.
I think the doc is right about what is going on with the cold/flu. I've found that my intestines get the most help and the rest of the body gets whatever help is left over; which isn't much. My feeling is that MMS works on my sinuses a tiny bit at each dose. Just enough to aggravate things. Like making my mucous a tiny bit thinner. My cold symptoms do not come with a fever.
Maybe each one of these posts has helped a little.
