MMS and Recent Breakthrough in Advanced Skin Cancer Treatment!

Recently I'm told by my colleague that there is something called Magic Mineral Supplement (MMS) which is used by some people in Switzerland and beyond (http://www.healingcancernaturally.co...treatment.html) to treat cancer. Are there people within this forum who can advise me if I should recommend this treatment to my relative who is suffering from advanced skin cancer? As far as i know the MMS has chlorine dioxide which is a bleaching agent. I surely wonder how this is effective against cancer without bleaching to death the person it intends to treat (perhaps comes its magic).

On the other hand, here is the biggest breakthrough in melanoma treatment in more than 30 years http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13664452 Congratulations to those who have just discovered these new drugs which are effective against even advanced skin cancer. The beauty about these new drugs is that they are by far more effective than chemotherapy (as reported). I hope the drug regulatory authorities and manufacturers can speed up the process for the drugs' immediate availability on the market.

If your relative is not taking this in a trial, you should make them aware that it may be possible for them to be part of a trial for this if they are a suitable candidate.

Thanks. I never thought about this. Sounds really a great idea!

If you belive a product calling itself the Miracle Mineral Supplement actually works, there's no hope.

It looks like it's a big favourite of people who think the cancer will go away if they stay away from doctors.

Having said that, your relative's oncologist has probably considered this sort of thing already but it's worth a shot.

The oncologist of my relative has been reluctant in taking further steps to treat the cancer. He was actually told that he will not live beyond a year from now because of the lack of effective treatment for his type of cancer. Maybe thus why they have been so reluctant in doing further treatments. They informed him of a radiation treatment to be done on him in the future without giving any specific date, yet the person is suffering. So thus why I'm seeking immediate advise on those who might have knowledge about the use of MMS in treating cancer.

And unfortunately purveyors of useless miracle cures rely on those so desperate that they'll try anything, however bizarre it may seem.

It's still worth trying to see if your oncologist can get your relative on a trial for the Vemurafenib if there's one going.

Hi
Very sorry to hear about your relative and you have to go through this.
If your relative hasn't done this yet, then definitely try to get a second opinion (there are cancer forums/support groups where you can ask other patients for recommended specialists), and also don't hesitate to go abroad, eg. Germany to see a specialist, as unfortunately Switzerland is not always on top of everything in medicine.

Regarding the MMS - I don't know about this product, but due to the experience with close family members going through cancer, I've met patients who had success battling their cancer with non-'western medicine', so if there is nothing left I would give it a go.
Best wishes!
