Safety Notice #1:

Do not take Organic Sulfur if you are taking high doses of aspirin or any type of blood thinner!!

Safety Notice #2:

This protocol is synergistic with chemotherapy and makes chemotherapy more effective and less damaging!! However, if you are on any other type of prescription drug, do NOT use Organic Sulfur until after you talk to your pharmacist and physician about using high doses of Organic Sulfur (2 or 3 TABLEspoons of the crystals a day) with your prescription drugs. That is what pharmacists get paid to do.

Safety Notice #3:

Do not drink any form of tap water with this protocol, as tap water contains chlorine which can neutralize MSM. Use the hot water faucet if you are going to drink tap water or if you are going to use cold water, make sure it sits for at least an hour before using.


For those who are taking the Budwig Diet (e.g. Cellect-Budwig, Bill Henderson protocols, etc.) MSM and Vitamin C should NOT be used within 3 hours of the Budwig Diet, on both sides. It is perfectly safe to take MSM and Vitamin C, but not within the 3 hours on both sides.

1) Organic Sulfur (Sometimes Called MSM)

Organic sulfur IS MSM, but MSM is not necessarily organic sulfur. Do not buy MSM unless you are certain it is pure pure organic sulfur (i.e. it has no fillers or chemicals). This website endorses an “Organic Sulfur” vendor which sells pure MSM.

“Organic Sulfur Water” is made by putting 16 TABLEspoons of true organic sulfur into a gallon jug of purified water (which has ZERO chlorine in it) or distilled water.

If you use distilled water it can actually help detoxification, such as removing heavy metals.

If you use tap water, either use the tap water from the “hot” faucet (and let it cool off) or let the water sit for at least an hour before putting any organic sulfur in it!!!

NOTE: MSM is almost as safe to drink as water (based on LD-50). An adult could double, triple or even quadruple the doses of “MSM Water” in this article and still be perfectly safe!! Doses for taking the “MSM Water” (taken from a gallon jug of water with MSM put into it) are discussed below.

For those who have had chemotherapy, or are currently on chemotherapy, they need to take “MSM Water” every day to help the chemotherapy target the cancer cells. This will also be explained below.

True organic sulfur can deal with pain (because it gets oxygen inside the cells) and it can deal with inflammation for the same reason. But this oxygen also can kill the microbes inside the cancer cells which in turn can revert the cancer cells into normal cells. See the “What Causes Cancer” article, which is linked to on the left side-bar, which is the column of links on the left side of most pages.

Organic Sulfur can also take the “trash” out of the cell every 12 hours. It can also get rid of heavy metals, which is important for many cancer patients and most patients with brain disorders. This also means that cancer patients with brain fog may benefit from this treatment, depending on what is causing the brain fog.

While organic sulfur is a superb cancer treatment by itself, adding Vitamin C is like adding chocolate sauce to vanilla ice cream.

MSM Vendor

The difference between true “organic sulfur” and inferior MSM is so important it could mean the difference between life and death when using this protocol!!!

Air is 21% oxygen. Water is 89% oxygen. The oxygen from air gets to the lungs, heart and muscles. However, it is the oxygen from water that needs to get inside the cells both to make the cells healthy, to give them energy and to kill microbes inside the cells.

True organic sulfur is what grabs the oxygen from the water and transports the oxygen inside the cells. This produces a surge of oxygen into the cancer cells.

There is no way to describe the importance of true organic sulfur in the treatment of cancer, brain disorders and many other health conditions!! Every part of the human body (including the brain) is made of cells. Getting sulfur and oxygen inside these cells is critical for all aspects of health!!

Organic sulfur comes in one pound bags. It is more cost-effective to buy two pounds (i.e. two bags), or more, at a time. Here is an approved vendor of true “organic sulfur”:

H2O Air Water America

2) ZERO Intake of Chlorinated Water

At NO time, and under NO circumstances, should you drink any water or any other liquid with chlorine in it!!!

Chlorine in water will damage the effectiveness of true organic sulfur. What chlorine does is block the oxygen from getting inside the cells. It is necessary to guarantee you are not consuming any chlorine.


There are several ways to insure you are not taking chlorinated water.

First, drink your water solely from the “hot water” side of your faucet, even if the water is cold. The water that comes from the hot water tank, even if it is cold, has had its chlorine dissolved.

It is also important to not take the water from the “hot water” side of the faucet until it has run for a few seconds to make sure no cold water is still in the pipes.

A second way to get rid of chlorine is to squeeze the juice from one or two lemons in the tap water and let it sit for at least 20 minutes!! This will also make sure the chlorine is dissolved.

3) Drink Enough Non-Chlorinated Water

For each pound (U.S. pound) take half that number in ounces of non-chlorinated water.

For example, if the patient weighs 200 pounds, they should drink at least 100 ounces of non-chlorinated water to aid this protocol.

Drinking this water should be spread out during the day.

4) Get Out In The Sun For 30 Minutes a Day

Ultraviolet light from the sun is important for this protocol. As a minimum the face and bare arms should be in the sunlight for half-an-hour each day. Cloudy days, except for when there are very thick clouds, counts for this time.

For those who cannot get out in the sun, due to health or weather, they can use an Ultraviolet A lamp indoors. Do NOT use an Ultraviolet B or Ultraviolet C lamp.

They are available where-ever party (i.e. a teen-age party) products are sold. They are also sold on the Internet.

For example, a person can lay on the floor or bed and have a light next to their naked leg, either on the side or above the leg. All of the black light should be beside or above flesh.

I would also not use it where the head is for concerns that dental amalgam will be released. Use the leg or arm or body, as long as it is below the neck. Wearing a surgeon’s mask will help protect any dental amalgam from being released by the UV light.

Also, I am concerned about dehydration if the person uses an ultraviolet A lamp (at the ICRF we researched ultraviolet light so we understand the safety issues). Put a damp cloth on the skin, AFTER the use of the ultraviolet lamp, for a few minutes.

5) Take 1/2 TEAspoon of “Real Salt” Daily

“Real Salt” is a specific brand of salt and it is loaded with a vast number of natural minerals which are important for oxygen transports and many other purposes.

See this website to purchase the product (the dose is 1/2 TEAspoon a day):

6) One or Two Drops of 5% Lugol Iodine

The Food and Drug Administration has limited certain concentrations and volumes of iodine from being available to the general public.

The dose is one or two drops of 5% iodine a day. I would put it in a small glass of purified water.

The MSM/Vitamin C Treatment For Cancer

For the rest of this article, the “organic sulfur” mentioned above will be referred to as “MSM.”

MSM by itself, at high doses (two tablespoons of the crystals), is a very superb cancer treatment for advanced cancer patients because of its ability to get rid of lactic acid in the bloodstream, kill microbes in the bloodstream, etc.

MSM can be taken in almost unlimited doses (see it’s LD-50 using Google).

However, in this protocol high doses of Vitamin C (the Lypo-Spheric version) are added to the MSM to make it into a protocol that can also revert many cancer cells into normal cells. see this article:

Article on Lyposomal Encapsulated Vitamin C

Lipo-spheric or Lipo Spheric or lipospheric Vitamin C and Liposomal Vitamin C (they are largely the same thing) can be purchased online or you can make them at home. Just use Google to find commercial versions of “Lipo Spheric” Vitamin C (which may be a trademarked version).

Excellent Article on Lyposomal Vitamin C

Article on How To Make Liposomal or Lyposomal Vitamin C

Dr. Mercola ( has an excellent version of Liposomal Vitamin C but you may need to use Google or contact them to find it on their website.

Here is another article on how to make Liposomal Vitamin C using an ultrasonic cleaner:
Making Liposomal Vitamin C With Ultrasonic Cleaner

This “MSM/Vitamin C Treatment” has as its goal:

1) To block the lactic acid cycle (i.e. the cachexia cycle), by pulling lactic acid out of the bloodstream (lactic acid, the cachexia cycle, kills about 40% of all cancer patients),

2) Get key nutrients (e.g. Vitamin C) past the lactic acid blockade to help the cells.

3) Help clean microbes out of the bloodstream (which helps get other microbe-killing substances to the cancer cells by “clearing a path” in the bloodstream) and it helps build the immune system,

4) Help get microbe-killing substances (in this case Vitamin C and oxygen) inside the cancer cells, where they can revert the cancer cells into normal cells,

5) Make electromedicine devices (which have a “carrier wave”) more effective (e.g. High RF Frequency Protocol devices).

Note: To understand how #4 is possible, read the “What Causes Cancer” article which is linked to on the left side-bar and remember that some MSM converts to DMSO and opens the ports of the cancer cells.

This protocol can be a supplemental treatment for other highly effective cancer treatments or specific treatments can be added to the “MSM/Vitamin C” protocol to make it into a complete cancer protocol.

About This Treatment

MSM is known by the following names:





DMSO2 and other names.

MSM is a natural product found throughout nature. MSM is an incredibly safe product. In fact, it is almost as safe to drink as purified water!!

The LD-50, which is a standard measurement of the dose of a product that would kill half of the people who took it, for MSM, is 2,000 grams a day. This is astronomical and is an indication of the complete safety of MSM!!

The doses of MSM in this protocol are about 24 grams a day (i.e. two tablespoons of the crystals). Children should take a proportionately lower dose.

MSM is used for a wide, wide array of health issues. It is mainly used as an oxygen transport, to remove lactic acid from the bloodstream, as a pain killer and as a product to increase circulation.

Like its cousin DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) it can penetrate the skin, but unlike DMSO it will not carry other substances through the skin with it. Also it does not cause any body odor, which DMSO certainly will do.

As far as cancer is concerned, it is used in the following ways:

1) As an oxygen transport,

2) To kill microbes in the bloodstream for several reasons,

3) To help sweep lactic acid out of the bloodstream to prevent cachexia,

4) To get microbe-killing substances (such as Vitamin C) inside of cancer cells to help revert cancer cells into normal cells,

5) To reduce swelling and inflammation (e.g. for brain cancer) and

6) To help reduce pain (via removing lactic acid from the blood).

Dealing with lactic acid (which is frequently a major cause of pain) and the cachexia cycle, and dealing with the microbes in the bloodstream should be a TOP priority after a patient is stable (and quite frankly, from day one after diagnoses of the cancer)!!

MSM Vendor

The “lactic acid cycle” (i.e. cachexia) is caused by the following:

1) Glucose enters into the cancer cells and is converted into lactic acid and is released into the bloodstream,

2) The lactic acid (via the bloodstream) goes to the liver and the liver converts it into glucose,

3) The glucose goes back to the cancer cells and the cycle starts again (go to Step 1).

Both end points of this cycle consume enormous amounts of energy.

There are several ways to deal with the deadly cachexia cycle:

1) MSM removes lactic acid in the bloodstream, thus the lactic acid cannot get to the liver,

2) Hydrazine sulphate blocks the conversion of lactic acid into glucose in the liver,

3) Anything that kills cancer cells helps block the cycle (less cancer cells means less lactic acid),

4) Anything that reverts cancer cells into normal cells also helps block the cycle (ditto).

This protocol deals with items #1 and #4.

In addition, the lactic acid cycle makes cancer patients weak, causes massive pain and can therefore reduce their will to live!!

Lactic acid can be just as dangerous as the cancer cells!!

While hydrazine sulphate does an excellent job of dealing with stopping the production of lactic acid, few people like to use it because of its numerous safety warnings, meaning it almost has to be used by itself.

Vitamin C is added to the MSM specifically to revert cancer cells into normal cells (item #4 above), but it also kills microbes in the bloodstream.

This “MSM/Vitamin C Treatment” is designed specifically to deal with cachexia, microbes in the bloodstream, reverting cancer cells into normal cells, etc. And it does this without using hydrazine sulphate.


A small percentage of people will get a skin rash if they take MSM internally. The skin rash is harmless, but it does itch and indicates the person cannot use this protocol because of an allergy to MSM.

To test for this rash, take ONLY 1 TEAspoon of “MSM Water” (aka “Organic Sulfur Water”), which is a very small amount of MSM. If you get a skin rash you should not take this protocol.

If you do not get a skin rash within two hours, take 1 TABLEspoon of “MSM Water.” If you do not get a skin rash in two more hours, you can take this protocol.

How To Make “MSM Water”

To make “MSM Water,” take a gallon jug of water which has ZERO chlorine in it. Use either purified water or tap water that has been out of the faucet for at least an hour before using it.

Put 16 TABLEspoons of “Organic Sulfur” (MSM) into the one gallon jug of water.

It may take an hour for the organic sulfur to totally dissolve. To speed up this process shake the gallon jug every few minutes.

Once the organic sulfur has totally dissolved, and you do not see any crystals in the bottom of the jug, the “MSM Water” is made.

A person could put into the gallon jug 30 or 40 drops of “Cell Food” (a trace mineral supplement) as a way to get some trace minerals into the body. This is recommended but not required.

Do not refrigerate it, let it sit at room temperature.

Adding Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C to the “MSM Water”

While the MSM water, by itself, may be able to revert cancer cells into normal cells; it is best to be on the safe side and add other things to the protocol that can definitely revert cancer cells into normal cells.

Thus, Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C, a high quality, very gentle brand of Vitamin C, has been added. Vitamin C kills microbes and the portion of the MSM that converts to DMSO (and perhaps some of the MSM itself) will “open” the ports of the cancer cells to allow microbe-killing substances inside the cancer cells.

A person cannot start out with high doses of MSM water because their stomach will not be accustomed to drinking it. Thus, instructions for the use of MSM water are more complicated than might be expected.

(NOTE #1: Vitamin C should always be taken 1/2 hour AFTER MSM. This allows the MSM 1/2 hour to open the ports of the cancer cells for the Vitamin C to enter in.)

(NOTE #2: LIPH (see MSM/LIPH) is frequently taken with MSM. Likewise, “Secret Product” (see the Dirt Cheap Protocol) is frequently taken with Lipospheric Vitamin C. Thus, the above protocol would be more effective if it were done thusly:
MSM/LIPH, then one-half hour later: Vitamin C with one Secret Product (done twice a day).

Doses of MSM Water (and Build-Up) – For an Adult

As mentioned above, a person should start with 1 TEAspoon of MSM water to test for allergies.

Two hours later you can start the “build-up.”

Day 1 Build-Up:

Take 4 TABLEspoons of “MSM water” (the “MSM Water” comes from the gallon jug you just made).

At this point check for nausea or rashes caused by the MSM water. One-half hour later take 1 gram of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C,

Three hours later take 6 TABLEspoons of MSM water followed 1/2 hour later by 1 gram of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C,

Three hours later take 8 TABLEspoons of MSM water followed 1/2 hour later by 1 gram of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C.

That is all for Day 1. The first day achieved two purposes. First, was to get your stomach used to taking MSM. Second, and just as important, was to avoid too much Herxheimers. Herxheimers, although it is harmless, can make a person very sick and can scare a person from taking more MSM. It is caused by a massive die-off of microbes in the bloodstream. When the microbes die-off they release toxins. If there are too many toxins in the blood it can make a person sick and/or cause “brain fog.”

Also note that a person should drink plenty of purified water or “ozonated” water or “ionized” water or distilled water every day.

Day 2:

1) Take 8 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 2 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C,

2) Three hours later take 10 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 2 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C,

3) Three hours later take 11 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 2 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C.

Day 3 and Thereafter (i.e. Ongoing Dose):

1) Take 12 TABLEspoons of MSM/LIPH, 1/2 hour later, 2 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C Plus Secret Product,

2) Two or Three hours later take 12 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 2 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C,

3) Two or Three hours later take 12 TABLEspoons of MSM/LIPH, 1/2 hour later, 2 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C Plus Secret Product,

4) Two or Three hours later take 12 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 1 gram of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C.

5) Two or Three hours later take 12 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 1 gram of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C.

Note #1: Note that MSM/LIPH is taken five times a day and note that Secret Product is taken twice a day. The safe dose of MSM is pretty much unlimited.

Note #2: For those who have been on chemotherapy, or are still on chemotherapy, they should increase the dose on Day 4 and thereafter to 16 TABLEspoons of MSM water plus, 1/2 hour later, 4 grams of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C and continue this dose.

Other Important Comments

How much MSM water per day you take is up to you, but a dose of 44 or 64 TABLEspoons of MSM water a day is perfectly safe for anyone except small children.

People react differently to the higher doses. Some will get a strange feeling in their head (caused by flooding the brain with oxygen singlets – which is a good thing).

The build-up is critical!!

The “MSM/Vitamin C” protocol can be used as a highly effective supplemental protocol for other protocols. However, sometimes a slight adjustment must be made.

Using The “MSM/Vitamin C” Protocol With Chemotherapy

This protocol SHOULD be used with chemotherapy. This protocol will help the chemotherapy target the cancer cells and will thus make the chemotherapy more effective and protect many of the non-cancerous cells!!

However, because high doses of chemotherapy are generally used by orthodox medicine, there should be a separate “build-up” of using MSM with chemotherapy to make sure there are no unwanted side effects caused by using MSM with chemotherapy. Use the same build-up as someone who had never used MSM would use.

For other prescription drugs (i.e. non-chemotherapy), note that a small amount of the MSM taken in this protocol will convert into DMSO. DMSO may enhance the effectiveness of prescription drugs, thus the cancer patient may effectively overdose on their prescription drugs. Use a “build-up” for this situation, but first ask your pharmacist about taking any drug except chemotherapy with MSM.

Likewise, for those on time-release drugs, watch for side-effects during the “build-up” of using this protocol.
