DEFINITION

Manganese is a chemical element with atomic number 25.  It is not found as a free element in nature, but is often bound with iron.
Manganese
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manganese

Manganese is mysterious, and like the element itself, our understanding of it is clouded in some mystery.
“Late 14th century, in alchemy, "main ingredient of the philosopher's stone," from Medieval Latin magnesia, from Greek (he) Magnesia (lithos) "the lodestone," literally "(the) Magnesian (stone)," from Magnesia, region in Thessaly, which is said to be named for the native people name Magnetes, which is of unknown origin. The ancient word, in this sense, has evolved into magnet.  But in ancient times the same word, magnes, was used of lodestone as well as of a mineral commonly used in bleaching glass (modern pyrolusite, or manganese dioxide).”
Magnesia

Many cultures have tales of indestructible swords.  It’s quite possible that King Arthur’s sword, and so many of the ‘magical’ swords through the ages, may have been manganese-hardened steel.  Iron, atomic number 26, and manganese are neighbors in the periodic table of elements.  They work well together.  You will see that letting them work together in your body will be of great benefit to you.

There are many references to manganese as a magical element.
“Manganese, whose name is derived from a Greek word for magic, is an essential trace element that is required by organisms across every kingdom of life.  The magic of manganese lies not only in its ability to transform itself into an effector for a diverse range of redox and nonredox functions, but also in its ability to appear and disappear from a variety of locations within a cell.”

Animal life on Earth would not exist without Manganese.  Green life on earth would not exist without Manganese.  Photosynthesis II requires manganese atoms to break water, H20, into hydrogen and oxygen

“By replenishing lost electrons with electrons from the splitting of water, photosystem II provides the electrons for all of photosynthesis to occur.”

“Photosynthetic water splitting (or oxygen evolution) is one of the most important reactions on the planet, since it is the source of nearly all the atmosphere's oxygen.”

“The oxygen-evolving complex is the site of water oxidation.  It is a metallo-oxo cluster comprising four manganese ions (in oxidation states ranging from +2 to +4) and one divalent calcium ion.”
Photosystem II

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosystem_II      


90% of cellular oxygen is used in the Mitochondria.
“The mitochondrion is present in almost all eukaryotes, with the exception of anaerobic protozoa... “
Oxidative Phosphorylation

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxidative_phosphorylation
 

Oxidized compounds can cause us physical harm if they aren’t quickly broken down.
“The paradox of aerobic life, or the 'Oxygen Paradox', is that higher eukaryotic aerobic organisms cannot exist without oxygen, yet oxygen is inherently dangerous to their existence.”
OXIDATIVE STRESS – THE PARADOX OF AEROBIC LIFE

DENDRITES

Dendrites are defined as

1.  A short branched extension of a nerve cell, along which impulses received from other cells at synapses are transmitted to the cell body.
2.  A crystal or crystalline mass with a branching, treelike structure.

3.  A natural tree like or moss like marking on a piece of rock or mineral.


Our body is composed of networks, and our networks looks very much like the repeating dendritic systems we see in nature.  Naturally formed manganese dendrites in rock formations look like geographic maps, and they both look like the structure of trees and the nervous systems of biological organisms.

Even though these look like ferns, these are not fossils in these pictures; this is elemental manganese naturally creating the dendrite form.

Dendrite Manganese – Google Image Search

Manganese is used by plants in photosynthesis, and is not part of the chlorophyll, but for the plant to photosynthesize, it has to go through an array of four manganese atoms.  This array of manganese triggers an incredible amount of biological processes.

In our bodies, dendrites are part of our neural network.  This is what they look like in our body.  Notice how much the look like the branch systems of dendrites in rock formations, and the root and branching systems of plants.

Where else do we see these branching structures?

Astrocytes
Cardiovascular systems
Leaves
Lungs|
Mushroom branching networks
Nervous systems
Root systems
Tree branches

We don’t understand how these dendrite networks are formed, and we don’t understand the whole picture of manganese.  There is a relationship between manganese and these dendrite systems, and the dendrite systems in our own bodies.

MANGANESE AND MUSHROOMS

The workings of manganese peroxidase are outside the scope of this article.  However, I wanted to include some basics because there seems to be a dendrite/manganese structure behind their intelligence.  Mushrooms are generally not high in manganese, but they use manganese as a catalyst to digest food sources.

MANGANESE PURITY, AND AS A CATALYST

Manganese purifies and cleans much of what it touches.  It was called glassmakers soap, it removes impurities from steel, helps sterilize drinking water, releases oxygen for us to breathe, cleans out our mitochondria, and breaks down toxic ammonia inside our bodies.

“Manganese dioxide is believed to have been first used as a glass de-colorizer as early as about the second century B.C.  It was probably introduced as the mineral pyrolusite. From Roman times onward, glasses often contain about 0.5% to 1.0% manganese oxide (MnO).  Later on, manganese dioxide (MnO2) was sometimes called "glassmakers' soap."

Decolorizers (Manganese Dioxide)
https://www.cmog.org/article/solarized-glass

 
“Manganese is useful in steel manufacture because it binds with phosphorus, sulfur, and silica, removing them (to a degree) from the iron.  It was much used in conjunction with the Bessemer process both to introduce carbon and manganese, and also to reduce impurities.”
Manganese—It Turns Iron Into Steel (and Does So Much More)
https://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2014/3087/pdf/fs2014-3087.pdf


“Manganese appears in structural steel grades in amounts ranging from

about 0.50 to 1.70 percent. It has effects similar to those of carbon, and the steel producer uses these two elements in combination to obtain a material with the desired properties. Manganese is a necessity for the process of hot rolling of steel by its combination with oxygen and sulfur.”
Chemical Composition of Structural Steels

http://web.mit.edu/1.51/www/pdf/chemical.pdf

 

Did you ever watch a movie and the safe crackers spend all night long trying to get the safe open?  Safes are made with Mangalloy, which is about 13% manganese, and makes it near impossible to break, crack, drill, or even explode the steel.

Mangalloy
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mangalloy


This article recommends the use of manganese dioxide to purify ground water.
Manganese is a chemical catalyst.  It makes things happen. 
A catalyst is best described as something that drives change.  A skier at the top of a grassy ski slope in the summer can slide down the slope and eventually get to the bottom of the hill. At the top of the hill, the skier has the potential, over time, to get to the bottom of the slope. The same skier will have an easier time getting to the bottom of the slope in the winter when the hill is covered in snow, which accelerates the potential. The snow is the catalyst. It allows the skier to move faster and accelerates the act of reaching the bottom. Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War were both catalysts for change in US policies on secession and slavery. In chemistry, a catalyst causes or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected. In water treatment, MnO2 provides filter media with a catalyst. Manganese dioxide creates a catalytic effect in the chemical oxidation-reduction reactions necessary to remove iron, manganese, H2S, arsenic and radium.”

POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE

This link contains a 1970-1972 NASA report on scrubbing mercury out of the air. Note the KMnO4 works with or without the Zeolite.  I do not fully understand how the mercury is being trapped, and this report appears to be a one off, as I can find nowhere else that uses a KMnO4 for mercury remediation.

The above would work for scrubbing mercury out of coal fired power plants, however, it appears European plants will be using other less expensive technologies.

The following is excerpted from manganese used as a medicine in the form potassium permanganate.
“If taken by mouth it is deemed to be very toxic.  Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, and shortness of breath may occur.  If a sufficiently large amount (about 10 grams) is eaten death may occur.”

“Concentrated solutions when drunk have resulted in adult respiratory distress syndrome or swelling of the airway.”
Potassium Permanganate (medical use)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_permanganate_(medical_use)

Potassium Permanganate,  KMnO4, is used by the healthcare industry.

"Potassium permanganate is used for a number of skin conditions.  This includes fungal infections of the foot, impetigo, pemphigus, superficial wounds, dermatitis, and tropical ulcers.[2][6] It is on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system."
Potassium Permanganate
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_permanganate


Online can be found videos of people recommending potassium permanganate baths for Morgellon’s.  My recommendation is to proceed with extreme caution.  The amount of KMnO4 used in many of the videos and pictures I have seen has been far too strong in my opinion.  I have personally taken baths in KMnO4, I have used it topically, and I have drunk it.  While regularly using it topically, I did wake up several nights with some respiratory distress.  I had dreams of being underwater and unable to breath, I think I was holding my breath in my sleep, and I woke up gasping for air.  KMnO4 is an extremely strong oxidizer.  Drinking a too concentrated form of it can kill a person.  For those suffering from Morgellon’s, I recommend that they get their internal manganese and other essentials in balance, before using it topically.

Research from 1886 shows use of potassium permanganate for loss of periods in young women.  Obviously, from the gastric distress the subjects experienced, the Doctor was giving an enormous dose of the KMnO4.  I think the reason Manganese gets buried is that it isn’t a medicine, it’s a natural combination of elements.  Drug companies can’t make money from it.  Better to leave it in the dusty back shelf than fine tune an element/treatment that actually works.

Notice the use of the word ‘chlorotic’ for the condition of the women’s skin. 
Manganese is what allows photosynthesis in plants, whether these researchers knew this or not.  Leaves turn yellow without enough manganese, and the “Chlorotic” women  were probably pale/anemic/yellow looking.
“In botany, chlorosis is a condition in which leaves produce insufficient chlorophyll.  As chlorophyll is responsible for the green color of leaves, chlorotic leaves are pale, yellow, or yellow-white.”

Manganese Testing for Flavonoids
Using manganese to determine the presence of flavonoids.  This tells me that manganese and flavonoids are closely interrelated; they recognize one another.

Colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) is a property of some materials, mostly manganese-based perovskite oxides, that enables them to dramatically change their electrical resistance in the presence of a magnetic field.
Colossal Magnetoresistance

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossal_magnetoresistance

“The most successful traditional theories cannot explain Colossal Magneto Resistance.  Double-exchange theory, for example, describes the relation between magnetic transitions and metal-insulator transitions in terms of the orientation of electron spins at adjacent sites.  For lanthanum strontium manganese oxide there should be only about a 30 percent change in conductivity.”

"In fact," says Chuang, "the observed changes are much bigger, by orders of magnitude.  Thus the 'colossal' effect."
Closing in on the Theory of Colossal Magnetoresistance
http://www2.lbl.gov/Science-Articles/Archive/colossal-magnetoresistance.html


I'm seeing Manganese as the card reader, like as in a credit card terminal, where it reads the electrical charges and alters them appropriately.  I see Manganese as being the processor, the machine that zaps the loose bound metabolic package coming down the assembly line.  The loose parts go through this kind of manganese instrument, maybe it zaps it with an electrical charge, and that is when it creates the finished product. 
“The next generation of computers will be “instant-on,” meaning they won’t need to be booted up to move hard-drive data into memory. They’ll also store data in a smaller space and access it faster, while consuming less power than today’s machines — thanks in part to the development of magnetic random access memory chips, or MRAM.

As if the properties of Manganese are not strange enough, Manganese is the poster child of unusual crystalline structures.
Periodic Table (crystal structure)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periodic_table_(crystal_structure)


We think the manganese is unpredictable, as the magnetic state of the structure is unstable, and flips back and forth.  However, I propose that we simply don’t understand how manganese works.

My theory is that we keep seeing things for their physical appearance, rather than for their energies.  We see this in the article where it is described that we are yet unable to harness the electromechanical powers of manganese because of the low temperatures.  What is not being considered is how Manganese is adding intelligence, order to life.  I propose that Manganese allows us to flip the switch, to be able to see both sides of an equation.  Maybe this is partly what happens when our manganese is impinged on, we end up being trapped in a set way of thinking.  The person with OCD, or maybe the autistic, who must have the same order every time, because they are so deficient in Manganese, they attempt to exert their authority over their environments, to keep things ordered as the missing manganese would have done.

MANGANESE AND METABOLISM

Metabolism is defined as “the chemical processes that occur within a living organism in order to maintain life.”
Metabolism
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metabolism


The following link has an incredible graphic of metabolic cycles and pathways. 
Most of the manganese related metabolites discussed in this article could be found in this graphic, whether the metabolite is part of a cycle, or a pathway.

Metabolic Pathways
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/Human_Metabolism_-_Pathways.jpg


Interference with any of these processes may cause a ripple effect, where processes further down the line will not function properly.  For example, most pharmaceuticals work by interfering with Metabolic Pathways.  This treats a symptom.  For example, a person with cystic acne may be given a steroid that treats the skin condition, but it never solves the problem.  The steroid skirts the real issue, as the person has a problem making their own internal steroids, as something is interfering with their metabolism.  Later the patient may need another drug, as the steroid begins to interfere with other metabolic cycles and pathways.  They are told, “We don’t have a cure for your problem, but we have found many people taking XYZ drug, will need ABC drug, and studies show these drugs ‘compliment’ one another.

Anything interfering with our metabolisms, whether it is a toxin like mercury, a deficiency, or a drug, will throw of our metabolic cycles, our literal balance, like a washing machine that is thrown off balance, and can literally shake itself apart.


Manganese isn’t used as an exchanger, like sodium or potassium, so we don’t need  big stores of it, and there isn’t large amounts of it in the blood.  Supposedly, the body does NOT store manganese; it is all put to work.  In instances where there has been an accumulation of dietary manganese, there may be something impinging on its metabolic use.  This would be akin to having a fleet of garbage trucks ready to take away the city’s garbage, but there is no fuel, or drivers to drive them.

This 1967 study shows that manganese supersedes magnesium when binding to B1-Globulins.  For our immune systems to properly function, we may need more manganese, and less magnesium, and magnesium may actually interfere with our use of manganese.  Manganese is not found ‘free floating’ in our bodies, it is always bound to proteins, contrary to magnesium.

The Nutritional Relationships of Manganese

RSI – REPETITIVE STRESS INURIES

Those deficient in Manganese can end up with RSI, repetitive stress injuries.  They keep hitting themselves in the same spot with a hammer.  I had sprained my left ankle probably up to 30-60 times over 35 years.  I played a lot of basketball, but it got so bad I could sprain it on a crack in the sidewalk.  It was like repeatedly biting a lip ulcer in my mouth.

The following is a direct, but lengthy quote:

“The principal area we will notice low manganese is in tendon control.  In Joel Wallach's book "Rare Earth's Forbidden Cure's" printed in 1994, he attributes RSI (repetitive strain injury) to low manganese levels.  Any injury around a joint may involve tendons.  Tendons and ligaments join muscle to bone.  If muscle is stretched tight because of low manganese, this is going to put pressure on the tendons too.  This can cause problems from the feet (often archilles tendon) up through any of the joints - knees, hip, shoulders, back, arms, wrists and even ears.

The first visible sign that our manganese is slipping is droopy eyelids.  We may think it is good to be able to put eye-shadow on and be able to see it, but in reality it tells us something is wrong.  Start looking at other people's eyelids - you can't actually see the eyelid - it disappears up under the eyebrows.  This is normal.  Next, a bit further down the track we may start to get tinnitus - noises in the ears.  Your doctor may tell you this will just get worse over the years and you have to put up with it!

There are tendons holding the little bones in the ear that transmit sound, in place too and they are so delicate that it doesn't take long before they are malfunctioning because of poor tendon control.  Don't just listen to the noises, listen to your body.  It is trying to tell you to get more manganese coming through.

If you don't do anything at this stage, later you will start to have real tendon problems.  Painful joints, pulled or torn ligaments, contractures of the fingers with visible tight bands across the palm.  Ankles will twist easily.  We lose coordination and become clumsy.  We fall over more, bump into things and generally do ourselves an injury.  Eventually we need surgery to various
places - all for the want of a bit of manganese.“

Manganese For Tendons

CELLULAR SANITATION AND SUPER OXIDE DISMUTASE

Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that alternately catalyzes the dismutation (or partitioning) of the superoxide (O2−) radical into either ordinary molecular oxygen (O2) or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Superoxide is produced as a by-product of oxygen metabolism and, if not regulated, causes many types of cell damage.

SOD is what detoxes the mitochondria.

There are three types of SOD:

SOD1 zinc and copper based

SOD2 manganese based called MnSOD2

SOD3 iron based

‘Knockout mice’ have been bred to be missing genetic parts, in other words certain genes have been ‘knocked out’ of them.  Here are some facts about Manganese deficient mice.

Mice born with knockouts for SOD1 and SOD3, limp along through life, with poor metabolic functions.  SOD1 knockouts age very quickly.

MnSOD, that is SOD2, deficient mice many times are still born, and/or die immediately after birth.  It they are not able to put their manganese to use, MnSOD2, the generated free radicals from our cellular respiration kill them.  This proves there is no substitution for SOD2.  For SOD1 and SOD3, the mitochondria may be substituting MnSOD2 in their places. 

Manganese is the king of cellular respiration.


These knockout mice of MnSOD2 live up to three weeks.

The MnSOD is going to throw garbage out of your cells and into your extracellular space, space that you didn't know you had.  Toxins like mercury poison us on the way in, and they poison us on the way out, and in the case of cellular respiration, it may simply be oxygen radicals. 

It’s important to move slowly when supplementing with manganese.  You may take a large dose at one time, 50mg for example, but don’t take this everyday, and definitely don’t do it while constipated.

MnSOD2, THE MIGHTY MICE, AND PEPCK

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, PEPCK, is important for our metabolisms to break down carbohydrates into simple sugars.  When we are deficient in manganese, we will have problems utilizing our carbohydrates, and we can end up fermenting them.  Think candida, like rotting garbage, because the manganese sanitation department is on strike.

“The mitochondrial isoform of chicken liver PEPCK complexed with Mn2+, Mn2+-phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP), and Mn2+-GDP provides information about its structure and how this enzyme catalyzes reactions.”
Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxykinase
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphoenolpyruvate_carboxykinase


Manganese is essential for the normal functioning of our metabolic cycles.  Even when rats are simply deficient in manganese, they fair poorly

“These findings suggest that glucose homeostasis in the newborn may be compromised by manganese deficiency and may support the concept that changes in cellular manganese concentration may be important in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism.”
Pyruvate carboxylase and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase activity in developing rats: effect of manganese deficiency.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4009297


Mice that have been genetically modified to produce more PEPCK have been dubbed “The Mighty Mice.”  From our above research, we know that manganese is complicit in the mouse’s use of PEPCK.

The reason these mice are not producing lactic acid is because they are so efficient at breaking down carbohydrates, that they don’t have to break down their own muscles for energy.  Lactic acid is what makes us feel achy a day or two after working out.  For me personally, supplementing with manganese, I have very few aches and pains, and I exercise regularly.

"The mighty mice are metabolically similar to Lance Armstrong biking up the Pyrenees.  They utilize mainly fatty acids for energy and produce very little lactic acid.  They are not eating or drinking and yet they can run for four or five hours. They are 10 times more active than ordinary mice in their home cage.  They also live longer – up to three years of age – and are reproductively active for almost three years.  In short, they are remarkable animals.  However, they eat twice as much as control mice, but they are half the weight, and are very aggressive. Why this is the case, we are not really sure."

IRI- ISCHEMIC REPERFUSION INJURIES

The following is an example of a reperfusion injury.  A man is camping in the woods and gets a severe cut to his forearm.  The man applies a tourniquet just below his elbow to prevent any more loss of blood.  Arriving four hours later at the hospital the man’s lower arm is blue, and his hand is purple.  When may an extreme necrosis, cellular death, occur in the man’s hand?

When the tourniquet is released, if it is released all at once, there will be a huge influx of blood and oxygen.  If the detox pathways, the veins, are not open enough to carry away the carbon dioxide produced by cellular respiration, extreme cell death and necrosis can occur.

If the blood is let into the arm very slowly, it will limit oxidative damage.  The bodies and cells ability to open up the veins to take away carbon dioxide must open up at the same rate as the fresh blood coming in, or severe cellular damage can take place.  The back end sanitation department is the MnSOD.


These results suggest that mitochondrial O2 production may be a critical step underlying the mechanism of ischemia/reperfusion injury and that MnSOD may protect against ongoing oxidative cell death after ischemia/reperfusion.”
Manganese Superoxide Dismutase Deficiency Exacerbates Cerebral Infarction After Focal Cerebral Ischemia/Reperfusion in Mice
http://stroke.ahajournals.org/content/strokeaha/33/3/809.full.pdf


The following article has an easy to understand pictorial analogy to the movie, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

“Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury (IRI) occurring with ischemia and restoration of blood flow to post-ischemic tissue, is associated with arrhythmias, myocardial necrosis and apoptosis,resulting in increased mortality and morbidity.

AMMONIA, ARGINASE, ASTROCYTES, AUTISM AND UREA

The IRI, ischemic reperfusion injury is complicit in Autism.  When the child or any person, severely swells from an autoimmune response, if the blood is thinned, if more oxygen is sent to the site of the injury than the body can handle, that is when the most serious damage occurs. 

In many cases autism is a type of stroke taking place in children.  I first heard of this theory through the research of Dr. Andrew Moulden.

Vaccine injuries, Dr. Andrew Moulden, Conférence Liberté de Choix
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6Pb2gqbkyk


I believe Tylenol to be complicit in many vaccine injuries.  Tylenol poisonings account for more than 75,000 emergency room visits a year.  Tylenol thins the blood, and depletes our sulfur.  Ischemic reperfusion injuries are the root cause of many cases of autism.

Damage to the neural networks, astrocytes, causes long-term dysfunction.  If the neural networks can be repaired, then the body can reduce the swelling, and break down ammonia.  Manganese in the form of MnSOD takes away the oxidized radicals, it breaks down carbohydrates in PEPCK, and thus prevents buildup of lactic acid, and as an essential part of arginase, it reduces ammonia that will otherwise cause long term swelling.

“Glutamine synthetase in the brain participates in the metabolic regulation of glutamate, the detoxification of brain ammonia, the assimilation of ammonia, recyclization of neurotransmitters, and termination of neurotransmitter signals.  GS, in the brain, is found primarily in ARGINASE.  Astrocytes protect neurons against excitotoxicity by taking up excess ammonia and glutamate.  In hyperammonemic environments (high levels of ammonia), astroglial swelling occurs.”
Glutamine Synthetase

Arginase, containing 4 Mn(II) ions per enzyme;
ARGINASE is the final enzyme of the Urea Cycle.  It keeps us from being poisoned by ammonia.

Arginase
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arginase

Anyone having an ammonia problem may not have enough available manganese  to break down ammonia into urea.

Manganese is not always found in our enzymes; many times, it is the metabolic catalyst for them.  The same way that Manganese works in photosynthesis.  Manganese is not in the byproducts of the processes, but is responsible for their creation.


Manganese can help the liver detox, by sending waste products to the kidneys.  It can help with backed up bilirubin in the liver.  “Arginase catalyzes the fifth and final step in the urea cycle, a series of biochemical reactions in mammals during which the body disposes of harmful ammonia.  Specifically, arginase converts L-arginine into L-ornithine and urea.”

Manganese takes the stress off the liver by breaking ammonia down into urea, which is then sent to the kidneys.  
Manganese Biological Role
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manganese#Biological_role

Arginase is a manganese-containing enzyme.  The reaction catalyzed by this enzyme is: arginine + H2O → ornithine + urea.  It is the final enzyme of the urea cycle.  It is ubiquitous to all domains of life.

Arginase
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arginase

Ornithine
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornithine


Although the following study is in regards to measuring biomarkers for autism, it can be seen that if arginase is hung up, there will be resulting inflammation.

Although the following study is in regards to measuring biomarkers for autism, it can be seen that if arginase is hung up, there will be resulting inflammation.

“As arginase requires a free arginine for conversion to ornithine an interesting alternative possibility is that this C-terminal arginine residue is ADP-ribosylated by an arginine-specific ADP-ribosyltransferase (ART) catalyzing the transfer of ADP-ribose from NAD, with the possibility of a ‘secondary’ modification of the ADP-ribosylated arginine resulting in replacement of ADP-ribosylarginine by ornithine as shown for HNP-1.  Lack of ART expression, that is ART2, has previously been correlated with enhanced susceptibility to autoimmune diseases.  Altered immune function and complement-system deficiency has been reported for children with ASD, indicating a recurrent incidence of immunological diseases.  Other investigations have shown significantly increased levels of inflammatory markers such as TNF-a, IL-6, IL-8, GM-CSF and IFN-g in the post mortem brain tissue of individuals with autism and immune dysfunction has also been proposed as a potential mechanism for the pathogenesis of ASD.”

https://www.nature.com/articles/tp201219.pdf?origin=ppub


There is a very close relationship between Arginase, which catabolizes into Arginine and H20, and Nitric Oxide.  Nitric oxide (NO) is a vasodilator.  As needed the NO will dilate the veins and arteries, letting in both more oxygen in the blood, and more quickly taking away the ROS.
Nitric Oxide Synthetase
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitric_oxide_synthase


“Thus, our understanding of Nitric Oxide in EAE (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis) and MS has shifted from the early belief that it is purely a destructive molecule contributing to disease pathology, to a current more balanced view of NO as an immune regulator, which can both promote and prevent autoimmune inflammation depending on its dosage and context of action.”
Arginase and autoimmune inflammation in the central nervous system

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1783013/


Glutamine is a precursor to arginine, and fever may reduce swelling by triggering a clean out of ROS causing swelling.  During fever, glutamine is released.  There may be a cleaning out of ROS from the arginine, and or there may be vasodilation created by Nitric Oxide produced from the freed up arginine.

Cuba has vaccinations for measles, but they have a much lower incidence of autism, and in Cuba, Tylenol is only available by prescription.

“Parents and pediatricians of children with autistic disorders know fever is often accompanied by dramatic relief of autistic behavior.  How this happens has not been detected, but a little-known clue suggests a promising line of inquiry – improvements sometimes begin hours before fever.”

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF MANGANESE

“Manganese is involved in many different biochemical processes and can, therefore, adversely affect a number of systems throughout the body.  Low levels of manganese in the body can result in impaired glucose tolerance, altered carbohydrate and fat metabolism, skeletal abnormalities, bone demineralization and malformation, stunted growth, decreased serum cholesterol levels, skin rash and elevated blood calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase levels.  In addition, manganese deficiencies can result in infertility, seizures, weakness, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, hearing loss, iron-deficiency anemia, weak hair and nails and convulsions, blindness or paralysis in infants.”

Myasthenia Gravis

This article is on the Mayo Clinic website.  There are some truths, and one big lie, “There is NO cure for myasthenia gravis.”  That is a lie.

To cure myasthenia gravis, start by getting mercury out of the body.  Tyrosine kinase is blocked in myasthenia gravis.  However, tyrosine kinase is manganese related, and by simply supplementing with manganese, the body makes more tyrosine kinase.

MANGANESE DEFICIENCY CONDITIONS

Addiction/Alcoholism
Alcoholics go deficient in thiamine.  Thiamine has a sulfur atom.  It will keep the liver from being toxic, and the bile working.  We are using the Epsom to get the bile running, and mercury leaving the body.  We add in the Thiamine to keep the systems going, then we can add in the Manganese to do the deep cell cleaning.  If you are a drinker, and/or have liver problems, supplement with high doses of thiamine before adding manganese.
https://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2018/1/21/thiamine-saves

Manganese showing up in the brains of those with cirrhosis of the liver may be a symptom of thiamine deficiency.  This cannot be discounted.

Osteoporosis
Have you ever heard that spine and skeletal problems are caused by manganese deficiencies?  Probably not, as there is a huge and profitable industry treating skeletal problems of people deficient in manganese, whether its spine surgeries or chronic arthritis.

However, when manganese is profitable, as in the chicken industry, the research is extensive.

Baby chicks are born with malformed skeletons when they are deficient in manganese.  This isn’t some newfangled study, it’s from 1939.

Ringworm
Potassium permanganate worked on my toenail fungus, but it did not help like iodine did for the ringworm in my cats.  The following treatment solved the problem in less than a week.


I have had experience treating cats for ringworm and have found that Iodine was more effective at clearing it up than KMnO4.  In a shallow bowl I added ¼ cup of water, 1 tsp Dr. Willard’s Water, and 10 drops 5% Lugol’s Iodine.  Dip their front paws in the solution and rub it into their fur and in and around their paw pads.  Then apply the solution to their heads including ears and underneath their jaws.  Go over their eyes with it as well.  Gently rub it into their infected skin.

Tooth Decay
Lactic acid is what is rotting our teeth in most cases.  By supplementing with manganese, our saliva will break down that lactic acid, and possibly re-mineralize our teeth.  See Cellular Sanitation and Superoxide Dismutase.


DR. CARL PFEIFFER

Dr. Pfeiffer discovered the importance of manganese in helping schizophrenics.  I don't think he understood the huge role mercury plays in people’s sickness, but I consider him a forbearer of my own research.  Dr Preiffer recommended Zinc, Manganese and vitamin B6, pyridoxine for the treatment of schizophrenia.

Pfeiffer helped more than15,000 people.  He kept detailed records of his clients and included biological tests like the HTMA (hair test mineral analysis.)

Dr. Pfeiffer found that schizophrenics commonly had high levels of kryptopyrolle (HPL) in their urine.  He called this condition pyroluria, and he helped them reduce their HPL levels recommending they supplement with manganese, zinc, and vitamin B6.

Dr. Pfeiffer helped start orthomolecular medicine, and "Orthomolecular psychiatry's goal of weaning patients from conventional neuroleptic drugs follows "Pfeiffer's Law", "For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect"

However he was ostracized
by the health care/pharmaceutical industry, because he wasn't prescribing drugs.  He was recommending natural cures.
 
"Few, if any, medical experts regard the condition as genuine, and few or no articles on pyroluria are found in modern medical literature; the approach is described as "snake oil" by pediatrician and author Julian Haber."

Take that as we kick you out the door!  This is the only entry in Wikipedia for pyroluria.
Orthomolecular Psychiatry
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthomolecular_psychiatry


This type of behavior by healthcare ‘authorities’ was also exposed by Carl Pfeiffer, when he notes at the start of his paper, that the 1934 Hoskins report on manganese for schizophrenics was used instead of the other well researched, and documented studies.  Manganese was no longer used for treatment, and the supplementation of it was buried for almost 50 years.

The philanthropic thinking of Dr. Pfeiffer is evident in the following quote from his paper of 1983.  However, I believe that his recommended doses are too low, and that his research is missing the importance of sulfur, and poisonings from toxins like mercury.

“The beneficial effect of Zn, Mn and vitamin B6 in pyroluria, is important since this defect extends through many diagnostic categories.  The most urgent need is for daily supplements in those children now labeled mentally retarded, learning disabled, minimal brain damaged, autistic, dyslexic and hyperactive.  For this purpose, some philanthropic foundation might wish to make available at cost (or free of charge) a simple supplement consisting of the daily need for Zn and Mn, namely 15 and 4 mg respectively plus 25 mg of pyridoxine (vitamin B6 ). The patients could be used as their own controls and other vitamins could be used as placebo medication for the first two weeks of medication while the basic behavioral observations are being made.”
Zinc and Manganese in the Schizophrenias
http://www.orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1999/articles/1999-v14n01-p028.shtml


It is clear Dr. Pfeiffer’s had learned much since his paper of 1974.  Unfortunately, the research team doesn’t seem to consider any role toxins may play in the condition of their patients.

MANGANISM AND PARKINSON’S

The constant repetition by ‘Healthcare,’ that we must take care to prevent being poisoned by manganese is a misinformation campaign of the highest order.  Manganese poisoning comes from the following: welding, mining, drug addicts using Mn contaminated Ephedrone (Methcathinone) preparations, and in patients receiving high Mn concentrations in intravenous nutrition.  Manganese is not being accumulated in toxic amounts from the diet, or from ingesting supplements.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methcathinone


Lumping industrial manganese toxicity together with supposed symptoms of excess manganese from the diet or supplementation is a bit like saying Vitamin C is bad for us, because citrus fruits can fall out of trees and hit people on the head.

I do not recommend drinking alcohol and supplementing with manganese at the same time.  It is possible manganese can be accumulated in the brain for lack of vitamin B1, thiamine, and from having clogged up bile ducts, and/or cirrhosis of the liver.  It is consistently noted that people with cirrhosis of the liver will have high levels of manganese in the brain.  However, I don’t believe the accumulation of manganese is the root of the problem.  I believe it’s a deficiency of essentials, like thiamine, that will put the manganese to work.

Do not remain constipated and supplement with manganese, or any supplement for that matter.  However, for me, the following study from 1920 proves that manganese poisoning is not coming from ingestion of manganese.  (I love these older studies, since monetary interests of for-profit-drug companies don’t taint them.  This study is an easy and understandable read.)
Absorption and Elimination of Manganese Ingested as Oxides and Silicates
http://www.jbc.org/content/45/1/133.full.pdf


Historically, manganese toxicity, called manganism, was either coming from airborne manganese in mines or factories, or from long-term intravenous nutrition.  The reports of manganese poisoning from well water, came from manganese batteries dumped in the wells.  It is unclear what actually caused the poisoning.  There is NO data showing it was manganese.  The studies of manganese poisoning and abnormal behavior caused by water containing high-levels of manganese in several Greek communities, do not have the data to back it up, yet the studies were taken as the gold standard by governmental authorities. 
https://books.google.com/books?id=r1hq62uJGKcC&pg=PA107&lpg=PA107&dq=ions+volume+37+6.2+humans&source=bl&ots=lU9c19TTwD&sig=wNbOZR8z90h04bw568NtB9dhjB0&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiX68Xlo8bZAhVSwFkKHYn7A_UQ6AEIKTAA#v=onepage&q=ions%20volume%2037%206.2%20humans&f=false


The following study is designed around finding out when the accumulation of manganese in the basal ganglia causes Parkinson’s.  In essence, it is treating as fact, the belief Manganese causes Parkinson’s.  There is absolutely NO proof that this is true.  Again, this is like saying that oxygen is bad for people because someone died from getting too much pure oxygen out of an oxygen tank.
“ Excess accumulation of manganese (Mn) in the brain results in a neurological syndrome with cognitive, psychiatric, and movement abnormalities. The highest concentrations of Mn in the brain are achieved in the basal ganglia, which may precipitate a form of parkinsonism with some clinical features that are similar and some that are different to those in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Recently, scientists have debated the possibility that Mn may have an etiological role in PD or that it may accelerate the expression of PD.”
Manganese and Parkinson’s Disease: A Critical Review and New Findings
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2920085/
 

In the 1830's, manganese miners and workers were found to develop Parkinson's like symptoms.  High levels of manganese were found in their basal ganglia, and ever since Parkinson’s has been associated with Manganese.  Manganese poisoning is called Manganism.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manganism


According to this author, Manganism and Parkinson’s have nothing to do with one another.
Parkinsonshttps://books.google.com/books?id=4_ggc4R8ibMC&pg=PA136&lpg=PA136&dq=Elemental+Speciation+in+Human+Health+Risk+Assessment+parkinson+disease+and+manganism&source=bl&ots=uVYzg6vqtu&sig=IMiCO4D2zGa3aTamfcd-y9NAZBM&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjx6eakwuXaAhXETN8KHREzD9QQ6AEIMjAB#v=onepage&q=Elemental%20Speciation%20in%20Human%20Health%20Risk%20Assessment%20parkinson%20disease%20and%20manganism&f=false

 
Finally, we have this doozy of a study, where they declare excess manganese neurotoxic, and that it accumulates in the central nervous system.  They never mention who was poisoned and how they were poisoned.  Then they mention possible manganese toxicity in those with hepatic encephalopathy.  Hepatic encephalopathy is defined as ‘a loss of brain function because the liver doesn’t remove toxins’.  To be clear, these researchers are using people with impaired livers, finding accumulated manganese in their brains, and implying its the source of their problems.  We see no discussion of neurotoxins like mercury, aluminum, alcohol, or deficiencies of vitamins like thiamine.

The researchers then proceed to take astrocytes, never cells, out of the human body, experiment with them in petri dishes, and then plant seeds of doubt by claiming that manganese ‘might’ cause low grade brain edema.

Manganese induces cell swelling in cultured astrocytes.

Aluminum
We are being inundated with aluminum.  The ‘aluminum can’ came onto the market in 1959.  Manganese is used for the strength of the can, and corrosion resistance.
Aluminum Alloy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3003_aluminium_alloy


All aluminum cans need interior coatings to protect them from corrosion, and many of these coatings are endocrine disruptors.  Additionally, the coatings are made to go with particular acids, and if they were to be mixed up, there could be substantial leaching of toxins into the food.

“Because of BPA, everybody dances around what to call the can’s internal corrosion inhibitor.  The FDA calls it a resinous and polymeric coating.  At Can School, Ball employees called it an organic coating, or water-based polymer. The EPA calls it a chemical pollutant.  Health researchers call it an endocrine disruptor, and a chronic toxin.”
The Secret Life of the Aluminum Can, a Feat of Engineering
https://www.wired.com/2015/03/secret-life-aluminum-can-true-modern-marvel/


It is possible that we are getting excess aluminum compounded with manganese in our bodies, which sits down in place of manganese, and simply doesn’t work properly, short circuiting our metabolic processes.

Iron Poisoning
If you want supplemental iron, eat a steak. 
If you have been supplementing with Iron; PLEASE STOP IT.
If you have had a blood test and have been told you have low iron, understand that only 0.1% of your iron is in your blood, and it is attached to a protein called transferrin.  There are most certainly other reasons your blood iron is low.
Transferrin

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transferrin


Iron, in a process called the ‘Fenton Reaction,’ can interfere with our detox capabilities.
“The Fenton reaction has importance in biology because it involves the creation of free radicals by chemicals that are present in vivo.  Transition-metal ions such as iron and copper donate or accept free electrons via intracellular reactions and help in creating free radicals.  Most intracellular iron is in ferric(+3 ion) form and must be reduced to the ferrous (+2) form to take part in Fenton reaction. Superoxide ions and transition metals act in a synergistic manner in the creation of free radical damage.  Therefore, although the clinical significance is still unclear, it is one of the viable reason to avoid iron supplementation in patients with active infections, whereas other reasons include iron-mediated infections.”
Fenton's reagent

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenton%27s_reagent#Biomedical_applications


“Cellular pools of iron can outcompete manganese for binding to manganese superoxide dismutase, and through Fenton chemistry, iron may counteract the benefits of non-proteinaceous manganese antioxidants.”
Battles with Iron: Manganese in Oxidative Stress Protection

Iron is not the enemy.  As previously noted at the start of this article, iron and manganese are neighbors.  Have them work together.

Radiation Poisoning
Manganese is the only element of the Group 7 Elements that is biologically essential to humans. 

Another of these elements, technetium-99, is a radioactive element used by the healthcare industry in nuclear medical imaging.
Group 7 Elements

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_7_element


Technetium-99 is used in 20 million diagnostic nuclear medical procedures yearly.   
Technetium-99

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99m#Medical_uses


A technetium-imaging test results in radiation exposures to the patient around 10 mSv (1000 mrem), the equivalent of about 500 chest X-ray exposures.
Technetium-99 Side Effects

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99m#Radiation_side-effects


Another group of elements are called halides.  Of the four halides, iodine is the only one essential to our well being, and the other three, bromine, chlorine, and fluoride, will displace it.  Is it possible that some of us are deficient in manganese because of exposure to this radioactive element, where this element has displaced our essential manganese?
 

MANGANESE FROM FOODS

Nuts and seeds have lots of manganese.  Legumes have high levels too.  Green foods have the right amount of manganese as well as animal products have them too.  This is my favorite list of sources of manganese from foods.
Manganese Rich Foods
http://vitamins.lovetoknow.com/about-mineral-supplements/manganese-rich-foods


Deficiency problems come when we have an industrial strength toxin that impinges on our manganese, or we have been depleted of manganese through excesses of other nutrients.
 

SUMMARY AND SUPPLEMENTATION

Do not remain constipated and supplement with manganese, or any supplement for that matter. 

When first adding in daily manganese at 50mg amounts or more, members from The Wilking Protocol Support Group have reported tightness in their chest, and/or in their midsections.  Manganese has a very close relationship with oxygen, and we may have been getting more oxygen and break down of ROS than our detox pathways were ready to handle.  The Wilking Protocol Support Group is here:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/wilking/?ref=direct


A good multi-vitamin like Perque Life Guard
Life guard also contains 15mg of manganese. 
https://thedetoxprotocols.com/products/perque-life-guard


Manganese – 50mg once a week to start
Any manganese as an ascorbate or chelate will be beneficial

Pyridoxine – Vitamin B6, 500mg
If you are exhibiting/feeling symptoms of a B6 deficiency, otherwise the B6 in your multi-vitamin will be sufficient.

Silica – Dr Willard’s Water is very strong.  I would drink this twice a week.  However, know that it has magnesium sulfate in it, and I wouldn’t add it in until your liver is cleaned up.  See Sulfur below.
This is the 1980 60 Minutes piece on Willard’s Water

The Wilking Protocol

HG-Wilking Protocol Scroll 170214 A22.jpg

The Wilking Protocol uses the basic essentials of human life as the foundation of our well-being.  These basic essentials, called 1st tier essentials, are Magnesium, Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salts), Potassium, SALT, and Vitamin C.  Every human body, whether young, old, sick, or healthy, needs these essentials.  Unhealthy bodies are deficient in them; healthy bodies are filled up with them.  Getting therapeutic doses of 1st tier essentials helps sufferers of debilitating conditions and diseases. 

The 1st tier essentials are arguably the strongest medicines known to man.  However, if we ingest them, and remain constipated, we will cause retained toxins in the body to redistribute, but not be evacuated, which is unhealthy, and possibly dangerous.

The first rule of the Wilking Protocol:
DON'T GET CONSTIPATED

The second rule:
HAVE A BOWEL MOVEMENT FIRST THING EVERY MORNING

The third rule:
INGEST 1ST TIER ESSENTIALS, MAGNESIUM, MAGNESIUM SULFATE, POTASSIUM, SALT, AND VITAMIN C EVERYDAY.

The Wilking Protocol is not about detox as many of us have been taught to understand detox.  We detox every time we have a bowel movement.  It is about having adequate essentials, so the body can naturally detox and repair itself.  When we ingest an excess of the 1st tier essentials, our body will flush the excess nutrients, and some accumulated toxins right along with them.  The body decides what it needs to do with these essentials.  We don’t force mandated or preconceived ideas about killing bacteria, chelating mercury, or altering diet or behavior because we supposedly have some mutant genetic DNA.  We simply give our body what every human body needs to optimally function.  In essence, we let our body do its job without interference from our brains, gauges, and tests.

The human body detoxes during sleep.  It puts toxins and other wastes into the intestines and kidneys so that they may be disposed of first thing in the morning.

Imagine working the night shift, and your job is to clean a factory, and this factory happens to be your body.  How depressed would you feel if night after night, the day shift hasn't bothered to clean up their work.  Not only that, but all the work you did the previous night, all the cleaning, meticulous sweeping, dusting, emptying of garbage cans into the dumpsters on the loading dock, all of that was somehow undone, and the garbage was again strewn throughout the factory.  This is what happens when we remain constipated.

Why do MAGNESIUM, POTASSIUM, SALT, SULFUR, AND VITAMIN C cause us to detox, and make us feel better in the process?  Humans evolved along the shorelines of the sea, and sea water is filled with minerals; minerals essential to human health.  Ocean water is almost identical to the makeup of our blood.  Our body is literally carrying around an ocean environment.

Foods along the shoreline, avocados, bananas, coconuts, citrus fruits, leafy green vegetables, and many others, are rich in essential nutrients.  With such abundance, our bodies don’t have any great reserve of them, and therefore we need a constant supply.  For example, human beings are one of the only animals that don’t make Vitamin C.  We don’t make Vitamin C because it was so prevalent in our environment. 

Think of the abundance of oxygen in the air.  Without oxygen, we will die within 5 to 10 minutes.  We don’t keep any more reserve of oxygen than needed because oxygen is in such great supply.  If you have ever been deprived of air for any length of time, think of the relief you had when you regained your breath.  Think of the relief you will have when you start filling up with the basic 1st tier essentials.

Since every human needs these 1st tier essentials, The Wilking Protocol always has a caregiver ingest them first, before administering it to anyone else.  It's a bit like riding a bicycle; you won't really understand it until you do it.  You know your child's health status better than anyone, and you will be a better guide after you have the experience.  Put your oxygen mask on first.

When these 1st tier basic essentials are consumed beyond bowel tolerance (BT), the body will naturally detox, sending the excess essentials, and some of its accumulated toxins, out of the body in the form of diarrhea.  BT is the amount of an essential consumed just before diarrhea occurs, and is completely natural.

We are putting our bodies back in charge.  We are bringing back gut intuition.

MAGNESIUM
Every single cell in the human body demands adequate magnesium to function, or it will perish.  Strong bones and teeth, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous and cardiovascular system, well-functioning detoxification pathways and much more depend upon cellular magnesium sufficiency. Soft tissue containing the highest concentrations of magnesium in the body include the brain and the heart—two organs that produce a large amount of electrical activity, and which can be especially vulnerable to magnesium deficiency.

We give our bodies the magnesium it needs to power it’s mitochondria, to detox its cells, and to make vitamin D3, and many more processes. Vitamin D3 is a hormone, and the body makes the exact amount it needs if it has enough magnesium, and a little bit of sunlight.  The Wilking Protocol does not supplement with Vitamin D3 because supplementing with D3 is treating a symptom of a magnesium deficiency.  This an example of a healthcare system misinformation campaign.

Magnesium can be used to flush the intestines.  There are different types of Magnesium, and ways that it is assimilated into the body.  The root cause of constipation can sometimes be a Magnesium deficiency.

MAGNESIUM SULFATE (EPSOM SALTS)
Magnesium Sulfate, MgSO4, is also called Epsom salts.  It's important not to confuse Epsom salts with SALT (NaCL).  Epsom salt is NOT a sea salt or a Himalayan salt, and Magnesium sulfate crystals are similar to SALT (NaCL) crystals in appearance.  Do not confuse them.

In the Wilking Protocol, we bathe with Magnesium Sulfate, and we ingest it.  Our bodies need the sulfate to make strong bonds and repairs, and to detox.  I believe sulfur in the form of magnesium sulfate may be the safest form of sulfur supplementation for a sulfur deficient person.

Disulfide bonds are what give strength to our connective tissue, hair, intestines, and skin.  The finishing component of insulin is a disulfide bond.  Anyone with diabetes is deficient in sulfur.

If you have ever taken acetaminophen, Tylenol, which is a phenol based medicine, and you haven't loaded up on sulfate, that poison may be eating away at your liver.  Our bodies cannot detoxify from phenol without sulfate.  We cannot detoxify from mercury without sulfate.  Autism has links to sulfate deficiencies.  

Our body requires glutathione to detox, and sulfur is part of it's chemical compounding.  If the body does not have enough sulfur to run it's metabolic processes, it will break down essential cysteine, methionine, and glutathione to access the sulfur molecule.  When our body has adequate sulfur, it makes exactly the right amount of Glutathione and ALA to meet its needs. 

Ingesting and bathing in Magnesium Sulfate allows the body to be in charge.  When we have an excess of Magnesium Sulfate, our body flushes the excess essentials, and some accumulated toxins.

SALT - NaCL
Salt deficiency is associated with low pH, which is in turn associated with many health problems, such as low kidney, liver, and brain function; disruption of enzymatic activity; poor immune function; hormonal imbalances; and a host of chronic degenerative diseases including cancer.

The Wilking Protocol doesn’t supplement with HCL (hydrochloric acid) because that's treating a symptom of a chloride deficiency.  When we get enough SALT, NaCL, the body breaks off the exact amount of CL it wants to make the exact amount of HCL it needs; not more, not less.

White blood cells make hypochloric acid, that's HOCL, from SALT.  They make the exact amount they need to fight infections, and kill pathogens.  The Wilking Protocol doesn’t intentionally kill bacteria or pathogens, it gives the body what it needs so that the body can do its job.

Our bodies also use the CL to clean neurons and heal; we cannot recover from infections if we are on a low salt diet.  Sickly people are on low salt diets.

A root cause of constipation can be a Salt deficiency.  When we drink an excess of salt water, the body flushes the excess salt, and some accumulated toxins.
#SaltIsLife

POTASSIUM
Along with sodium, Potassium regulates the water balance and the acid-base balance in the blood and tissues. Potassium enters the cell more readily than does sodium, and instigates the brief sodium-potassium exchange across the cell membranes.  In the nerve cells, this sodium-potassium flux generates the electrical potential that aids the conduction of nerve impulses.  When potassium leaves the cell, it changes the membrane potential and allows the nerve impulse to progress. This electrical potential gradient, created by the "sodium-potassium pump," helps generate muscle contractions and regulates the heartbeat.  Another of the pump's most important functions is preventing the swelling of cells.
#PotassiumTruth

VITAMIN C
Any human completely cut off from Vitamin C will grow sick with scurvy.  It takes about 30 days.  A human will die if it doesn’t get Vitamin C for 90-150 days.

Vitamin C deficiency may be the root cause of many of our diseases today.  The only mammals that don't make vitamin C are the human, the monkey, and the guinea pig. It's of the utmost importance to our health that we get enough daily vitamin C. Lucky for us, most other plants and animals on earth make their own vitamin C. We get our vitamin C by consuming them.

Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues throughout the body, for healing wounds, and repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.

Vitamin C and sulfur are necessary for the body to make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.  Collagen heals the intestines and gives us good gut health.  Without vitamin C, we will have intestinal problems, like constipation, diarrhea and/or encopresis.

When we have an excess of Vitamin C, our body flushes the excess nutrients and accumulated toxins.

DETOX MEANS POOPING

The Wilking Protocol asks that you detox every morning of every day.  This means you have a bowel movement 1st thing every morning.  Having a bowel movement means you are detoxing. 

The reason we use these cleanses/flushes is that sometimes our systems are literally backed up with waste and toxins.  To get ourselves regular, to clean out, we occasionally do a cleanse.  You don’t need to do them everyday; you need to be regular everyday.

However, for the chronically constipated, one of these cleanses may become the number one tool in the toolbox for staying regular.

Cleanses/flushes are a tool for us to use.  However, a single tool does not build a house.  We need more than a hammer to rehabilitate a house.

Here is a collection of emergency cleanouts. 
#Constipation911

http://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2017/4/6/constipation-911

If you don’t need an emergency cleanout, then for getting regular you may want to start with one of these cleanses, and use the same one over and over again.

#LAscorbateCleanse

http://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2016/3/19/mercury-dump

I recommend magnesium sulfate as your number one tool in your toolbox.  It’s possible that you can have a bad reaction from it.  Some people’s sulfur pathways are so closed down that any dose of sulfate can causes a backlog of sulfur.  Everyone is different.


EGO TOXIC

Mercury poisons on the way in, and it poisons on the way out.  I’m going to ‘beat this thing’ doesn’t work when it comes to mercury.  It never has and it never will.  A farmer doesn’t grow beautiful foods over a weekend.  It’s a yearlong process, and even the earth must rest.  You will not ‘win’ against mercury; you will not recover your health over a weekend. 

Watching this five-minute video can help you understand how you will not beat mercury.  The only way to deal with mercury is very methodically, very slowly.

MERCURY AND BRAIN NEURON DEGENERATION
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqVDMr9ivo

Mercury will kill your cells and ruin your motor neurons on the way out the door.  Move too much to fast and you can have a heart attack and die.  You can easily harm yourself because of EGO.

#MercuryHeroes
http://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2017/4/12/mercury-heroes

The Wilking Protocol group is designed to help us keep our egos in check.  Doing a detox, and coming back a week or month later and saying it didn’t work is EGO.  It is either a deficiency mode form of EGO, or a growth form of EGO.  The person with a deficiency mode form of EGO says, “Nothing ever works for me.  Woe is me.  The directions are too complicated.  Would someone tell me what to do?”  The growth mode form of ego is, “I’m smarter than this protocol.  My body is of superhuman strength.  I have found a super fantastic, fast detox protocol, and I will win the race!”  Competition by nature is EGO driven and flawed.

Most detox protocols feed the EGO.  A good question to ask yourself is, “Am I feeding my EGO?”


FORK IN THE ROAD
You are at a fork in the road, and you will always be at this fork in the road.  You have to make a choice.  We always have choices to make.  Don’t rush your decision.  Ask yourself, “Is this decision good for me?  Is this decision a projection of the way I ‘think’ things should, or is it how they really are?  Am I in control of myself, or am I controlled by EGO, by the habits of conditioning?  To take the easy way out, have I turned over my power to an authority figure, by letting letting them make the decisions for me?  Have I done my research?  What does my gut intuition tell me?”

Death and Birth are related.  To detox and grow you will need to let some old habits die.  The Wilking Protocol offers to you a partnership with a healing community.

Your body is experiencing what every human body has experienced since the beginning of time.  You need the exact same elements needed by the Ancient Egyptians, Neanderthals, and Vikings.  This is a constant; it does not change.  You do not need a silver bullet fix.  Silver Bullet Fixes are for impatient and sick people, and you will be going back to the same people who gave you the Silver Bullet asking them for help.

Don’t fall into the trap of believing your body needs something new.  It is a lie.  The walls of history are lined with charlatans that have been expert at poisoning the villagers.  Those making the most money are poisoning the most people.  Makers of weapons, frackers of the Earth, and big oil companies make enormous profits.  Pharmaceuticals have the best performing stocks.  To make computers we rip the earth apart to dig up rare earth elements.

You do not need more than what the body naturally needs.  There is no new solution to sickness and good health.  You don’t need an elixir from the jungles of some far away place.

The fork in the road is this.  Do I use these supplements sporadically, or consistently.  Don’t be seduced by a ‘new’ solution.  Be prepared to be thrown off balance.  You are going to be thrown off balance.  Ask yourself, do I need more of this essential, or should I slow down?

It has taken you a lifetime to accumulate toxins.  If you are mercury toxic, you need to give yourself a couple of years to feel better.  Some days you will hit a home run, or catch a touchdown pass.  However, 95% of the time what you need to do is practice finding your balance.  You will not be on the front page of your own EGO driven newspaper everyday.  You will be playing offense and defense, and at least ½ the time you will be sitting the bench.  To do it differently than this you will hurt yourself because of your own EGO driven needs.  This protocol is NOT about doing an occasional cleanse.  It is about developing a consistency of habit that will change for the better, your life, and the lives of those around you.  Rather than taking poisonous Tylenol for a headache, now you will drink a glass of SALT water.  Rather than get a flu shot loaded with mercury and/or aluminum, you will increase your Vitamin C.  Rather than treat your arthritis with prescription meds, you will increase your magnesium sulfate to rebuild cartilage, increase synovial fluid, and detox mercury.  Rather than takes antibiotics for Lyme, we increase our SALT, potassium, and Vitamin C.  The solutions are sitting right in front of us.

This protocol is too simple for many people, especially those who have lost their gut intuition.  It is rare that a person with IBS or Crohn’s disease can follow what we are doing.  The healthcare system has their hooks so deep into these people, that they cannot see simple solutions.  They have lost their gut intuition.  Instead, the healthcare system convinces many of these people their intestines are flawed, and must be removed with surgery.  Our bodies are not flawed.

 

1st TIER DETOXING

EVERYDAY SUPPLEMENTS

Magnesium
400mg – I like Perque Mag Guard.

Magnesium Sulfate
1 to 3 teaspoons a day, depending on your needs

Potassium
2000mg – This is the equivalent of 4 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar, or one teaspoon of Potassium Citrate.

SALT
1 to 3 teaspoons a day.

Vitamin C
1 to 6 teaspoons a day.  Only use L-Ascorbate

I personally take 1 to 3 tsps of Magnesium Sulfate before bed, to make sure I go first thing in the morning.  Initially, you many not be able to handle Magnesium Sulfate every day.  You may need to pulse it.

Getting these supplements near these amounts should keep you regular.  If you start to have a bad reaction, back off even if you have to start from the beginning, by going back to the number one tool in your toolbox.


1st TIER ADDITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS EVERYDAY
I know of NO one having a bad reaction to any of the following supplements.
Selenium – 100-300mcg
Boron – 5 mg to 70mg a day.  It may keep you awake if you take it late in the day.
Molybdenum - 100-300mcg – I take is separately from Magnesium Sulfate.
Zinc - 30 mg a day
B Vitamins – A good multivitamin is fine
A multi-vitamin

FOOD, PROBIOTICS, and INFLAMMATION

Cod Liver Oil 1 tablespoon a day
Sardines and Anchovies – Your body needs these
Ghee – Clarified butter - USA only- The cow stood in the sun and ate grass so you don’t have to.

SAUERKRAUT SAVES

Make your own sauerkraut or buy Bubbies, Farmhouse Culture, or another type of Sauerkraut in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.  Do not use Pasteurized Sauerkraut sitting in the canned good section of the grocery store.  Fermenting salt and cabbage makes vitamin C and the best Probiotic in the world.  Drink or eat at least 6 oz of sauerkraut every day.
http://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2017/1/15/sauerkraut-probiotic.

FLUSH YOUR KIDNEYS

Your adrenal glands are attached to your kidneys.
The kidneys are incredibly sensitive to mercury. 
Mercury will accumulate in the kidneys.  Flush out toxins regularly with Cranberry Juice and Tart Cherry Juice.

 

INFLAMMATION
As you move mercury through your body you will experience inflammation.  You will feel pain.  The key is, don’t move too much too fast.
Charcoal can be used for bloating, in particular from an L-Ascorbate Flush.  Take it after the flush, or in the evening.  Don’t take it at the same time as your other supplements.  If you have inflammation, ask in group how to address it.

2ND TIER SUPPLEMENTATION

30 days from starting the Wilking Protocol, you may add in Iodine.

Iodine moves toxins, and when we move any toxins around inside our body, it's extremely important that our detox pathways are open.  The toxins need to be dispelled, and not just redistributed.  The bowels need to be running properly, dumping our current load of toxins before we start moving more.
http://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2016/11/22/iodine-our-most-important-element

Also see how Iodine moves toxins out of our glands:
http://www.mercuryfreekids.org/mercury101/2017/5/3/pineal-command


 
SUPPLEMENTATION GUIDELINES
You will reach this level when you are not having bad reactions from the previous supplements.

This is a general guideline for a 200 lb man.

Every Morning
1 tsp Vitamin C – In the form of L-Ascorbate. Perque or C-Salts
 ½ tsp Salt – Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
2000mg Potassium – This is the equivalent of 4 tsp of Cream of Tartar, or one tsp of Potassium Citrate.
A Pinch of Borax – Boron

Late Morning – Most days
Iodine – Lugol’s 5% - 5 drops
Selenium –  100-300mcg
Molybdenum - 100-300mcg

Lunch – Most days
½ tsp Vitamin C – In the form of L-Ascorbate
400mg Magnesium – Almost any form of magnesium is sufficient
Multivitamin
B Vitamin – One of the cofactors of Iodine supplementation
Zinc – I personally don’t recommend more than 30mg a day.  Take with food

Evening – Every evening
Magnesium Sulfate – ¼  to 3 tsps, depending on your needs.  The reason I take this in the evening is I will flush from it in the morning.

3rd Tier – Sulfur based chelation

All of these supplements are sulfur based, and taken in an oral form.  You may need these to detox from mercury, and you may not.  It’s important to be managing the 1st and 2nd tiers of our protocol before you proceed with these.  When the body has enough sulfate, it makes its own Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Glutathione.

Alpha Lipoic Acid
DMSA
DMPS
Glutathione

#WickedMercury
#JollyGreenGiant
#AcuteMercuryPoisoning


Dear Mercury Toxic People,

Be forewarned:  You may be running along wonderfully, doing just fine, thinking this protocol is easy.

However, there are hundreds of thousands of mercury storage sites throughout your body; there may be hundreds of millions of them.  You may be feeling great, thinking you’re in the clear, and it all makes perfect sense.  Then all of a sudden your adrenals kick in, or maybe your thyroid is feeling all lovey dovey, and it starts making T3 and T4 hormones in great quantity, more than you’ve felt at one time in 20 years.  Hello chain reaction.  Oh, Hello Again Wicked Mercury!

Maybe this time those essentials you’ve been consuming will wake up your pituitary, commonly called the master gland, since it tells all the other glands what to do.  However, today most of your other glands are in for repairs, bogged down from mercury, and the only cells that hear the pituitary call are the melanocytes, which make melanin when the pituitary sends them MSH. 

Those melanocytes may have been waiting for their marching orders for a long time, and since they heard the call, they intend to follow their orders.  Your body may be a Ferrari, a Fiat, a Tank, or VW Bug, and they have all been told to take you out for a little spin.  They all say in unison, “Its great to be out of the garage.  Let’s see how fast we can go!"  

If your endocrine system does this all at once, without checks and balances in place, literally immeasurable amounts of places in your body can decide, "The coast is clear!  It's a sunny day.  Let’s dump our mercury!"  You can easily go from being Happy Joy Joy to WTF just happened, I want to throw myself under the bus.  You aren't making this up when this happens.  It's real.  It's all too real. 

You may have just exchanged chronic mercury poisoning, "I don't feel so good today. I'm achy.  My eyesight is going.  I'm getting old.  I’m depressed," for acute mercury poisoning.  You may move more mercury at once than you have ever moved before.  In fact, you could move 1000 times more mercury at once than you ever have, 20 years of accumulation, and now you are acutely mercury poisoned.

Acute mercury poisoning can literally give someone a heart attack.  The blood pressure can shoot through the roof, maybe to trying to push the mercury out of your blood stream.  That level of blood pressure can give a person an aneurysm, a stroke, an ischemic-reperfusion injury. 

Your adrenals start going on high alert sending out hundreds of  times more dopamine than you have been getting, and you will have a terrible fight or flight response. 

However, the enemy is invisible.  It would be so much easier to deal with this if there was 100ft tall God From Olympus coming across the Hills like the Jolly Green Giant, smashing villages, houses, and villagers with his hands and feet.  That is real.  You can see it.  You can make a plan to escape.  That's real.  Mercury is invisible, and it changes form at the drop of a hat. 

The problem with mercury is you can't see it.  You were doing everything right, so why do you feel like you are being ripped apart?  Well, you are being ripped apart, literally; you just went from being chronically mercury poisoned to acutely mercury poisoned.

This is why mercury is so incredibly profitable for the healthcare industry.  You can’t see the enemy, and they never say the word ‘MERCURY.’  They are watching you from their crystal ball, like the wicked witch, waiting for you to have a reaction so they can offer you a medicament for your symptoms.  If you know the Wizard of Oz, you may remember the wicked witch sends opiates through the crystal ball to put the overly excited adventurers to sleep.  What wakes them up is the freezing cold, snow.  If you are having a bad reaction, take a cold shower.

The key is to go back down the ladder.  Stop your essentials except for your vitamin C, maybe add in some charcoal, wait until things calm down.  Now you know the parameters.  Next time, a day from now, a week?, don’t go so hard at it.   Cool off, take a cold shower.

Going Loopy With Toxins?

#LoopyWithToxins

#LoopyWithToxins

For mercury, the best detox system we have is to detox through the skin, and/or the intestines, depending upon where the mercury has been stored.  However, most mercury toxic people will have some kind of intestinal problem, or skin problem, which means they are not able to detox mercury.  The problem compounds itself as the body requires more and more sulfur to control mercury redistribution,  which means the body has less and less sulfur available to keep those organs in good condition.  Mercury is the root problem of almost all disease we have today. 

Acupuncture, change in diets, chiropractic, essential elements, essential oils, massage, and vitamins can ALL move toxins, and this is a GOOD thing, as long as our major detox pathways are in good working order.

The problem is for most mercury toxic people, their detox pathways are not in good working order, and in many cases are shut down, or almost non-existent.  The more mercury toxic a person, the worse it is, and the more likely they will have a severe reaction to redistributing mercury, and since that mercury is moving without a place for it to go, that GOOD thing turns into a BAD thing.

Mercury may accumulate from any number of sources.  Sources of mercury are mercury dental fillings, vaccines, broken light bulbs, corn syrup, tuna and more.  If you have not made a list of possible exposures, and symptoms, you need to get them here:
TICKETS FOR THE CARNIVAL RIDE - GOING LOOPY WITH TOXINS

If you have your list ready, you may now enter the CARNIVAL RIDE called GOING LOOPY WITH TOXINS
On this ride, every time your read GOING LOOPY WITH TOXINS, and you encounter the words MERCURY 911, if you or a loved one have been performing one of these actions, go back to the beginning of GOING LOOPY WITH TOXINS, where it first says MERCURY 911, and start reading all over again from that point.  Show the usher your ticket, YOUR TICKET IS YOUR LIST, and remember you can not get off the ride until the ride is over, and the ride is not over until you HAVE stopped looping back to the starting point - Mercury 911..  There is no exiting until you have finished riding GOING LOOPY WITH TOXINS,

STARTING POINT - MERCURY 911
The body does everything it can to prevent an acute case of mercury poisoning, one where a whole bunch of mercury moves freely through the body, because that action can ruin an organ, and the person will die relatively quickly.  The body takes emergency actions to store free-floating mercury. It may store it in existing fats, like the brain or central nervous system.  Some bodies are smart enough to make fat cells to store it.  The obesity epidemic is not a sugar or fatty diet epidemic,  it’s a mercury epidemic.  The body also has stored mercury inside pathogens that methylate mercury.  Whether the body allows this to happen, or the pathogens are allowed to live is unclear, however, what is clear is that their is a symbiosis between mercury methylating pathogens and our bodies and microbiome.  These pathogens can be archaea, bacteria, fungus, or worms.  Bacteria include H Pylori, and Lyme.  Fungus like candida also methylate mercury.  Although these infections are not the best solution for the body, it’s a better solution than free-floating mercury.  If the mercury toxicity is severe, the body will make tumors to store the mercury.  By killing off bacteria and fungus, going on a crash diet, or cutting out cancer, the body can quickly grow acutely toxic with mercury, especially if there is a constant source of mercury, like leaking mercury dental fillings.  All mercury dental fillings leak.

If you have had mercury dental fillings removed, it's very important you address the mercury toxicity in your body. Mercury is dangerous in your fillings, it's dangerous taking it out, and it's dangerous once they are gone. The 3 month mark after removal is a biggie, because the cells and organs in the body can 'wake up' and say, hey what am I doing with this stuff, and dump it's mercury all at once.  If it does this, you will move into a case of acute mercury poisoning.  The body will go into 911 mode and will start storing the mercury anywhere it can, and that means fat cells.  Your brain is comprised mostly of fat cells.  You guessed it, the body sends the mercury to the brain.  Go back to MERCURY 911.

Candida, Pylori, and Lyme are anaerobic, facultative pathogesn that methylate mercury. They take mercury into their cells.   Mercury is 500 times more dangerous than lead. The body doesn't want the mercury coming in contact with it's own cells, mercury destroys nerve and brain synapses on contact.  Get rid of the mercury, and the bacteria and fungus go away,  However, if you kill the pathogens, you get poisoned by mercury.  The key is to get rid of the mercury, then the body can safely discharge the pathogens of their duty.  The body is using these pathogens to protect you from mercury poisoning.  Kill the pathogens and go back to MERCURY 911.

The body sends mercury to the liver, and the liver sends mercury and other toxins into the intestines for evacuation.  The liver also sends bile into the intestines to digest food.  Mercury has an affinity for sulfur, and is bound to sulfur in a natural state.  Bile has a lot of sulfur in it, and because the bile has a 95% uptake, when mercury attaches to the sulfur in the bile, it begins looping through the body in a toxic loop.  The mercury enters the blood stream and puts holes in the veins.  The body starts making cholesterol to plug up the holes.  The mercury can drop off in any number of places.  It can go to the eyes (cataracts), nervous system (fibromyalgia), pancreas (diabetes), and the list goes on and on and on.  The more the systems of excretion are backed up, the deeper into the body the mercury will go. For example, if the kidneys are backed up, the mercury will be set down in the adrenal glands, which are located on top of the kidneys.  Redistribute more mercury than the body can safely send out of it's detox pathways and go back to MERCURY 911.

Many vegetarians can grow very sick from mercury poisoning because their bodies run very efficiently, too efficiently to dump the mercury.  Their bile uptake may be as high as 99%, so the mercury just keeps circulating through their system.  Think about getting the runs from a greasy slice of pizza, or a piece of fatty meat.  Not very efficient in uptake, is it?  That bile is leaving the body.  Did you change your diet, have you cut out meat and fats? Go back to MERCURY 911

Most sick people have a problem with their intestines.  They are constipated, they have IBS, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, and the list goes on and on.  Intestinal problems, including diarrhea, are a sign that the intestines have a toxic mercury problem.  The strength of the intestines and the surrounding connective tissues comes from sulfur, and the disulfide bond.  Mercury has an affinity for sulfur, and will deplete the bodies stores of sulfur.  Are you reactive to sulfur foods?  Are you reactive to Epsom salts?  Go back to MERCURY 911

In constipation, the intestines, inflamed from mercury, cannot evacuate.  With diarrhea, and other discharge problems, the body is literally leaking out toxins, trying to get rid of them.  However, most drugs, and OTC medicines, stop the body from detoxifying.  Tylenol is a reductase inhibitor; it stops the liver from detoxifying.  It destroys the sulfur stores of the body.  Go back to MERCURY 911

Not feeling well, many people decide to boost their immune system by eating a bunch of immune stimulating foods like garlic, or onions.  These foods are loaded with sulfur, and mercury has an affinity for sulfur.  From it’s ‘safely stored’ place, after these foods are ingested, the mercury may loosely bind to the free floating sulfur, and end up back in the liver, and start the toxic loop all over again.  Go back to MERCURY 911

An immediate solution, but not a permanent solution, is to flush the intestines, not with an invasive enema, or a liver flush, but to do an Epsom salt flush.  Cleansing the intestines creates a safe place for the body to send toxins, allowing the rest of the body, cells and organs, to release their stored toxins, and they can start doing their jobs.  Clearing the intestines of its current toxic load will begin the process of breaking the toxic loop.

OPTIMAL HEALTH
I recommend products that are natural to our well-being, and only ones that can be found in the grocery or health food store.  Everything I recommend I do myself.  Everything I do is on my website, and everyone can use my site to get back to good health, naturally.  However, some people can be very deep in the woods, allergic to just about everything, while suffering from chronic pain and inflammation.  Many times their intestines are a wreck, and their body is putting on weight to protect itself from toxins.  Getting people back to a state of well being, naturally, takes time, patience, attention to detail, and experience.

Treating infections with PABA

Are we being lied to about the safety of PABA, it's uses and benefits?

Humans need folate, folic acid, to make red blood cells.  Red blood cells move oxygen throughout our bodies, and carry toxins from the cells to the liver and kidneys.  The word folate derives from the Latin word folium, which means foliage.

Humans lack the enzymes to make folate, so require folate from dietary sources such as green leafy vegetables.  Humans also get their source of folate from their own intestinal bacteria that convert PABA, para-aminobenzoic acid, to folate.  However, human intestines are sometimes wiped clean of their natural healthy microbiomes, and can no longer feed their own good bacteria.  How does this happen?

Sulfa drugs limit our intestinal bacteria’s ability to convert PABA to folic acid, a vitamin that bacteria need to survive.  Sulfa drugs have the same structure as PABA, and when the bacteria attempting to convert PABA to folate fail, the bacteria literally starve to death.

With the introduction of sulfa drugs in the 1930’s and 40’s, most information sources tell us that studies of PABA basically ended.  However, according to WebMD, PABA can be used to treat the following conditions:

PABA is taken by mouth for skin conditions including vitiligo, pemphigus, dermatomyositis, morphea, lymphoblastoma cutis, Peyronie's disease, and scleroderma. PABA is also used to treat infertility in women, arthritis, "tired blood" (anemia), rheumatic fever, constipation, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and headaches. It is also used to darken gray hair, prevent hair loss, make skin look younger, and prevent sunburn.

PABA is best known as a sunscreen that is applied to the skin (used topically).

PABA can also be taken orally to help prevent sunburn.

A number of the listed conditions on the WebMD site are autoimmune disorders - infectious diseases.

Dr James Chandler’s site calls PABA a beauty vitamin and lists benefits of PABA:

PABA offers various health benefits such as treating depression, eczema, scleroderma, irritability, loss of skin pigmentation, fatigue, fibrotic skin disorders, and irritable bowel syndrome. Some researchers suggest that supplementing with PABA may help in restoring gray hair to its original color, if the graying was caused by stress or deficiencies in nutrition.  Other benefits of PABA include: protection against second hand smoke, air pollutants, inflammation in arthritis and improved flexibility.  PABA's anti-inflammatory properties have been shown to help prevent signs of premature aging by diminishing wrinkles, firming sagging skin, and reducing the appearance of age spots on the skin.

There is no RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for PABA.  The government’s claim is that it’s not listed as a vitamin because our bodies make it.  However, if our gut flora has been whacked, how will we get our source of PABA?

Health sites likes this can add to the confusion.  The site lists the benefits of increased PABA, and then says, “PABA has no nutritional value for humans.”  What?

Currently PABA is used to determine insulin levels of the pancreas by giving an oral dose of PABA and then measuring urine or serum levels.  The healthcare industry is looking for NO release of PABA, meaning the pancreas has retained the PABA.  I can find NO explanations why the pancreas would retain PABA in diabetics.  Perhaps it desperately needs PABA.

Can PABA help our bodies detoxify?

When I began to dig a little deeper, I found studies that point to the efficacy of PABA as an antibacterial, one that cures Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever! This disease comes from a tick bite delivering the bacterium rickittsiae to the blood stream, exactly like Lyme disease is transferred through the bite of a deer tick.  It appears PABA increases cellular oxygen, which kills off the bacterium.  Folic acid was found to NOT increase cellular oxygen.

A 2014 commentary claims that a 1943 study using PABA to treat ricketssiae infected guinea pigs failed.

However this 1948 study states that PABA was successful in eliminating Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in all tested human subjects.

This pediatric study supports the conclusion of the 1948 study.

Currently I take one gram a day of PABA.  At higher doses I found myself producing too much uric acid and having gout like symptoms in my right foot.
