Controversy has erupted along the Gulf Coast Wednesday after reports were confirmed that a man is selling bottles of pool shock to people poisoned from crude oil and Corexit. Up to 40 million people have been poisoned, many suffering standard neurotoxin exposure injuries that are so debilitating, they are buying what health professionals call snake-oil.
Gulf Coast region human rights defenders are dismayed about a bottled toxic liquid being sold for immediate relief to vulnerable people desperate for their right to health care, Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Since onset of the Gulf operation, that right has been violated by the U.S. government in collaboration with BP and the U.S. military represented by the Coast Guard.
While many people using the “alternative detox treatment” have been tight-lipped about it, the salesman selling the bottled chemicals, Wil Spencer, was brought to attention of Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors (GCBD) on Tuesday.
It was reported that Humble’s dangerous MMS had been rebranded and repackaged as “Advanced Oxygen Therapy” and was being marketed as a magic bullet cure all.
By Wednesday morning, confirmation that Spencer was supplying “Humble’s Advanced Oxygen Therapy” to vulnerable Gulf victims had set off alarm bells throughout the coastal region and on Facebook. The Facebook group, Gulf Change has endorsed the product. At least one of its leaders opposes its stand on the product that it has been recommending on Facebook.
Ingredients on the bottle of the potion? Short and simple: “Active ingredient sodium salt.” Pressed to provide more details, Spencer has thus far refrained according to this writer’s sources.
No amount of toxins are ‘safe’
Registered Nurse, Patricia Springstead, now spending much time volunteering as a barefoot doctor, stated Tuesday in an email, “The historical fact of MMS is, that when, activated, it becomes what is equal to pool shock, to shock bacteria, fungus and other pathogens from swimming water.”
“The name for table salt is Sodium Chloride. In its dry state, MMS is Sodium Chlorite. When Activated with citrus or vinegar, it becomes Sodium Dioxide.”
Spencer’s “Advanced Oxygen Therapy” is addressed as a sister product of MMS, but he has not been available to explain the ingredients in the new sister. Reports have been submitted indicating the new product is as lethal as the old.
“It is of our honest opinion and research as medical professionals that if this is what people are ingesting, no matter in what amounts it is dangerous,” said Springstead, then asking, “Would you want to ingest pool water that you swim in on a daily basis?”
Allopathic Physicians and Naturopaths also speak of collateral damage from MMS. Both Patricia Springstead and her husband, Richard W. Springstead MD have seen MMS effects on numerous occasions – needing to intervene on an emergent basis to hydrate with fluids and draw blood chemistrys for potassium and other electrolyte imbalances and to decrease the toxic load and body burden of this substance.
According to Springstead and other health professionals, MMS is not Chlorine. It is Chlorine Dioxide. In his article, What is Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) and why is it dangerous?,” Health Consultant Jonathan Campbell reported that the “miracle” concoction causes cancer:
“Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) is being touted on the Internet as a natural antibiotic and cure-all for a wide range of diseases and afflictions: colds and flu (including swine flu), malaria, cancer, ‘HIV & AIDS,’ fungus, and, more recently, autism. But MMS is actually a synthetic industrial chemical – it is a concentrated (28%) chlorine bleach – sodium chlorite… This means that if you consume MMS you will end up with these compounds – which cause cancer – inside you. (“What is Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) and why is it dangerous?” (Campbell, J, Natural Therapies that Work, Online: http://www.cqs.com/mms.htm)
Campbell explains that MMS attacks healthy tissue:
“CLO2 is actually more dangerous than elemental chlorine for healthy tissue. According to the data on CLO2 cited to support its use for disinfection, it destroys amino acids and sulfurous bonds, both of which are integral to healthy human tissue. CLO2 cannot differentiate healthy tissue from diseased tissue. It is a universal biocide, not for human internal consumption.”
After no less than a life-saving interview that Mr. Jeff Rense conducted with Dr. Rodney Soto on Rense Radio Network, the Gulf hero doctor, Dr. Soto joined forces with the barefoot doctors to provide supervision to them plus provide remote and on-site health care to Gulf Coast residents, as had been prayed for over seven months. During that interview, Dr. Soto commented, “No toxins are a ‘safe level’ of toxins.”
After using MMS, Melinda F. from Florida said: “I have never been so sick in my life, after 1 month on this stuff.”
Nurse Springstead told her to push fresh mineral water and no citrus or vinegar for 2 weeks. Melinda also said that she “loaded up on Vitamin D3, 3000units and 1 sulfur capsule (that is MSM not MMS) in the morning and the afternoon.”
Melinda stated, “She also gave me a recipe for cabbage soup. After my experience with this, I wouldn’t tell my worst enemy to take this.”
After 2 weeks, Melinda was “better.”
Sue D in Calif is among an untold number of people scammed by the Church that is pushing the poison:
“I was swindled by the claims of the MMS people,” adding that it is a cult that “preys on a chemical and desperate people. I took both MMS 1 and MMS 2. After 2 days something told me to stop. This is not a miracle in any way. it is deadly chemicals. I am embarassed to say that I didn’t listen to you, Trisha. Did you know that even Africa is trying to get people to stop taking this stuff?????”
Facebook used to attract the vulnerable
“Natural Health Consultant, Medical Intuitive, Author, Researcher,” Wil Spencer’s FB page, www.bodyelectrician.com/Diet.html, contains the following information about “Environotics Unlimited and Advanced Oxygen Therapy”:
“Environotics Unlimited General Manager?Bethlehem, Pennsylvania?. Helping people understand their health and the health of the planet is dependent upon a natural balance derived from the Life Force, which is now understood though Quantum Physics, as electrical energy that flows from the earth through the food chain. There is an interdependence between the physical elements of minerals, enzymes, and amino acids, and the colonies of micro-organisms required for bio-electrical availability through our innate electrical body circuitry all the way to the subtle yet powerful level of our love frequency/vibration/energy.

My website, www.bodyelectrician.com is designed as a vehicle to deliver information on all aspects of human health and well being with focus on our innate ability to grow and expand as Who We Are, individually, in our conscious awareness and ultimately our choice to become enlightened, or not.”
Despite Dr. Soto’s warning that there is no so-called “safe-level” of poisoning, an untold number of Gulf residents have been willfully adding chemicals to their already poisoned systems , in desperation, convinced that the product is a cure.
One user of the “Miracle Mineral” cure, with not one mineral in it and equivalent to pool shock, admitted, “It even smells like chlorinated pool water.”
Some residents who have been using the “treatment” admitted they were soon nauseous, had diarhea and were more disoriented than before using it. Some became so violently ill, they were hospitalized according to this writer’s sources.
According to Springstead, MMS side effects include:
- Uncontrolled diarhea
- Chemical poisoning,
- Electrolyte imbalances
- Possible death
As medical professionals, health advocates, and humans, Gulf Barefoot Doctors have declared that if people choose to take MMS, it is at their own risk.
“There have been some misleading and very false statements labeled as ‘cures’ for many diseases under the guise of MMS. The FDA, which we do not always agree with, asked that selling this substance, be stopped and that people do not ingest this toxic substance. The ‘person who brought this product to market’ has no scientific background, no substantive evidence that is a cure for anything,” Springstead stated.
“People of the BP Gulf Oil Spill do not need one more dangerous chemical in their blood.”
“It is our duty to inform, educate and care for the condition of all sufferers of any disease, to outweigh the risks and benefits of what is ingested by people. In this case, risks far outweigh benefits,” stated Barefoot Doctors early Wednesday morning in a prepared statement.
“I think [Wil Spencer] has used it to make people believe they’re being helped by making them feel good. It’s had that effect, certainly. It’s the same old tactic used by snake oil salesmen, I’m sorry to say, except much more harmful than most of those,” said LaBarre, head of Barefoot Doctors in their New Orleans headquarters.
“It’s particularly despicable that Wil Spencer is targeting vulnerable people with serious conditions who have limited treatment options.”
Air critical for survival

Pure air, water and food are essential for survival. People of the Gulf have none of these now. The entire region, therefore, is facing a surge of cancer, as Dr. Rodney Soto, Dr. Mark Sircus, and too few other medical professionals have alerted.
Under Dr. Soto’s supervision, the barefoot doctors are revising their guidelines. Among other protocol, evidence-based Oxygen therapy is to be included.
In another life-saving Rense Radio program focusing on the Gulf of Mexico “catastrophe of the millennium” as he calls it, Mr. Rense and his guest, Mr. Rick Hill discuss, Deadly Indoor Air and How to Clean It. Mr. Hill of Healthy Perceptions discussed the importance of pure air in Gulf Coast homes.
Rense introduces the program presenting the Gulf as the “greatest single ecological catastrophe that man has caused,” second only, he asserts, to the global spread of depleted uranium.
“What’s been done to the Gulf is the crime of the millennium. What we’re going to talk about…all you people living on the Gulf… are facing an early death, that’s about the most gentle way i can put it together.”
Highlighting that “VOCs in Gulf Coast region air are beyond toxic,” Mr. Rense reminded the listener, “They’re finding blood panels of people who have been tested with so off-the-charts levels of some of these VOCs, that people being tested are clearly headed to catastrophic health break-downs.”
Benzyne is in Gulf region air samples, its strength depending on air flows. Air in Gulf homes is not pure enough to be non-toxic according to many health professionals.
Rense stated, “At the very start of this, the most important thing I recommended to people in the south,” stated Mr. Rense, “was to get an ozone air purifier so at least when they are inside, they have clean air to breathe. You’ve got to have refuge.” (Emphasis added)
One company has stepped up to help people who can afford a top of the line air purifier. Healthy Perceptions is offering the most effective and least expensive way to breathe clean air with its air purifiers. The offer can be seen on the Rense home page or by mentioning his name when phoning Healthy Perceptions.
This writer’s sources have reported that sick people having trouble breathing, cry in gratitude when someone finally gives a respirator to them so they can live longer, despite the discomfort and heat from wearing them. Air purifiers cause no such discomfort.
The Rense interview includes facts such as that every year, indoor air pollution causes one death every 20 seconds, 1.6 million people per year according to the WHO. Living longer is possible with air purification. On the other hand, even small amounts of air pollution have irreparable damage of children.
Air toxins are causing irreversible mutations in children, hard-wiring them for cancer later explained Mr. Hill.
Rense encourages Gulf neighbors who can, to pool resources to access an air purifier between them, to share if need be. Without clean air, the immune system cannot rebuild.
Alternatively, albeit not as effective as the top-of-the-line air purifiers offered through Rense Program, Nurse Springstead says, “Stabilized Oxygen can be made for pennies a day with the correct machinery.”
The reason most Gulf people cannot believe the danger to their lives because they fail to see that their government could do this to them according to Mr. Rense. Many people do want to survive, however, and need accurate information, unlike that provided by some who are injuring with their “treatments.’
Mr. Rense has covered the oil catastrophic event from its onset on a daily basis, providing opportunities for people of the Gulf and beyond to learn Gulf truth and facts needed to survive longer in these dark days. He and the helpful Rense Program Webmaster, Mr. james Neff arranged late Wednesday for the air quality interview to be available to the public, most beneficial for people of the Gulf. The program is available for listening at http://rense.gsradio.net:8080/rense/special/rense_R_Hill_110510.mp3.
During that program, Mr. Rense addresses doctors listening to the program, emphatically urging, “You people, please! Don’t tell people, ‘You have 3 months,’ or ‘six months to live,'” because people do as their told. The body will turn itself down and shut down.”
In the same respect, despite the predicted cancer surge throughout the Gulf Coast region, Mr. Rense reminds his followers, “Remember! MOST cancers are bacterial or virally caused.There are environmental triggers but there are almost always the above two in there somewhere.” Bacteria and viruses can be managed naturally. Such is the belief of the barefoot docs.
The Gulf barefoot doctors group was founded to fill a niche that government and everyone else was ignoring at the time of the Gulf oil operation, reaching out to compassionately provide community health care to those asking for it. Its mission is help people help themselves and each other so surviving isn’t out of reach of the poor and so people with money don’t go broke trying to survive.
Springstead emailed this writer about the deliberate poisoning of the people of the South, first be oil, then Corexit and now, by bottled poison, “I have a very hard time understanding how some of these people can sleep at night. I sure as hell don’t, because I am having to stay up and keep tabs on what next poison they are going to push and research.”
The barefoot docs are committed to the Hippocratic Oath including, “First do no harm.”
Time has arrived in the United States for each of us with compassion and a little extra strength to be a barefoot doctor – wherever we are. We all have have a right to health care and a responsibility to protect vulnerable people, including those already suffering and the children, from harm, including protecting from chemicals and those pushing them.
