The Miraculous Benefits of Methylene Blue

Methylene Blue, a synthetic dye and medication, has a long history of applications in various fields, including medicine, biology, and chemistry. This versatile compound has gained increasing attention for its wide range of potential health benefits. This document explores the remarkable advantages of Methylene Blue, shedding light on its uses in medicine, neuroprotection, energy enhancement, and even anti-aging properties.

1. Medicinal Applications:

Methylene Blue has been employed as a therapeutic agent for numerous medical conditions after its invention in 1876. One of its primary medical uses is as a dye in various diagnostic procedures, particularly in the visualisation of cells and tissues under the microscope. Additionally, it has shown promise in treating methemoglobinemia, a condition in which the blood cannot carry oxygen effectively, by acting as an effective reducing agent. This is all down to it's incredible power as a Nitric Oxide inhibitor.

2. Neuroprotective Properties:

Research has suggested that Methylene Blue may play a crucial role in protecting and supporting the nervous system. Studies indicate that it can act as an antioxidant (NO), mitigating oxidative stress and reducing cellular damage in the brain. This neuroprotective property makes it a potential candidate for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

3. Cognitive Enhancement:

The cognitive benefits of Methylene Blue have gained traction in recent years. Various studies have shown that it can enhance cognitive function, including memory, attention, and executive functions. It has been investigated as a possible treatment for cognitive decline in aging individuals and as a cognitive enhancer in healthy populations.

4. Energy Production and Mitochondrial Function:

Methylene Blue's involvement in cellular respiration and mitochondrial function has sparked interest in its potential as an energy enhancer. It has been shown to improve mitochondrial function, leading to increased energy production within cells. This property makes it a candidate for addressing conditions characterised by mitochondrial dysfunction, such as certain metabolic disorders.

5. Antimicrobial Agent:

Infectious diseases have always been a significant concern for public health. Methylene Blue has demonstrated antimicrobial properties, particularly against certain bacteria and parasites. It was the first antimalarial drug ever used and treated Malaria in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, only being dropped because men in WW2 didn't like seeing their urine turned blue. Many viruses such as Herpes, West Nile, Hepatitis C, Ebola, Zika, HIV and COVID-19 are quickly inactivated by Methylene Blue. MB is also on the list of promising treatments for Lyme disease, being used for those who fail to respond to antibiotics and has shown great success in studies, when used in combination with antibiotics.

6. Treatment of Mood Disorders:

Emerging research suggests that Methylene Blue may be effective in alleviating symptoms of certain mood disorders. Preliminary studies have shown that it can have positive effects on depression and anxiety when used in combination with other treatments. Recent research has shown that a single dose of Methylene Blue can completely eliminate symptoms of depression in some individuals.

7. Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effects:

As an antioxidant, Methylene Blue plays a vital role in neutralising free radicals and reducing oxidative stress, which are implicated in various chronic diseases and aging processes. Additionally, it exhibits anti-inflammatory properties, contributing to its therapeutic potential in conditions marked by inflammation.

8. Potential Anti-Cancer Properties:

Though still in the early stages of research, Methylene Blue has shown some promising anti-cancer effects in certain studies. Its ability to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells has raised interest in its potential as an adjunctive treatment in cancer therapy.

9. Wound Healing:

Methylene Blue has demonstrated the potential to accelerate wound healing processes. When applied topically, it can promote tissue repair and reduce the risk of infection, making it a valuable addition to wound care treatments. It is used extensively in A & E around the country where it is poured neat onto wounds.

10. Chemical Poisoning:

Most people today don’t know that if you overdose on a pharmaceutical or street drug, swallow some toothpaste containing fluoride, or eat a poisonous mushroom, Methylene Blue is the first line of treatment doctors and nurses will administer in an emergency.

11. Red Light Therapy

When it comes to therapies for diseases of the brain, two stand out among the crowd as the most promising. Methylene Blue and red light therapy are two widely studied approaches for improving brain mitochondrial respiration due to their ability to act directly on cellular metabolism and correct deficiencies therein. Red light and Methylene Blue "have similar beneficial effects on mitochondrial function, oxidative damage, inflammation, and subsequent behavioural symptoms," a 2020 review reports.

12. Use with EESystems

It has been considered as a drug for photodynamic therapy (PDT). Photo-physical, photo-chemical and photo-biological characteristics of this molecule have evolved to show in-vitro and in-vivo applications related to PDT. It has been concluded that used together with EESystems, Methylene Blue has the potential to treat a variety of cancerous and non-cancerous diseases, with low toxicity and no side effects.

Its neuroprotective properties, cognitive enhancements, and potential in various medical applications present a wealth of opportunities for research and development. With ongoing research and exploration, this fascinating compound may pave the way for ground-breaking medical advancements and improved quality of life for many individuals.


Here are some interesting extracts from Mark Sloan's book - link below - which is well worth the £9.50 investment from Amazon:

The New Metabolic Cancer Treatment Paradigm

"For decades, scientists have been churning out evidence showing that Cancer cell metabolism can be restored to normal cell metabolism. The only reason the public isn't aware of this information is that the predominant Cancer treatments of today - surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy - generate far too much profit for the industry to admit the truth. If the Cancer industry admitted this information publicly, it would put itself out of business, forfeiting $126 Billion in annual revenue. All that's left to leave the disease of Cancer behind us forever is for the public to read and understand the information written in the book ‘Cancers - The Metabolic Disease Unravelled.’

The book references over 30 studies showing Cancer cells transformed back into normal cells. In one study, scientists put mitochondria from Cancer into normal cells and observed the normal cells transform into Cancer cells. When they put mitochondria from normal cells into Cancer cells, the Cancer cells transformed back into normal cells.


Brazilian scientists Tardivo, Giglio, Santos de Oliveira, and their colleagues in Sao Paulo summed up the potential of methylene blue for Cancer when they wrote, "MB has the potential to treat a variety of cancerous and non-cancerous diseases, with low toxicity and no side effects.”


For those who suffer from depression and are intrigued by the potential of using methylene blue instead of toxic and side-effect-laden SSRI drugs, it's important to note that some published case studies have found negative drug reactions between SSRI psychiatric drugs and methylene blue. After intravenous infusion of higher doses of methylene blue, some patients developed "an acute confusional state" and other symptoms consistent with serotonin syndrome.

Does this mean that someone on SSRIs has no hope of switching to methylene blue? Absolutely not. It just means that it's probably best to wean off the drug for a while before making the switch.

While the public, medical doctors, some scientists and even naturopaths are taught to see nitric oxide (NO) through a one-dimensional lens - as a factor for greater blood flow in the brain and body - they fail to realise that "Low concentrations of NO are neuroprotective and mediate physiological signalling, whereas higher concentrations mediate neuroinflammatory actions and are neurotoxic.”


Something that might also help make the transition is red light therapy. A study from Harvard found that one single treatment of red light therapy directly against the forehead resulted in long-lasting beneficial effects on both anxiety and depression scores.


There are three different grades of methylene blue:

1. Industrial grade - used to dye fabric

2. Chemical grade - used in laboratory experiments

3. Pharmaceutical grade - used to treat methemoglobinemia, urinary tract infections, overdoses, and considered safe for human use.

When doctors administer methylene blue to patients intravenously for treating methemoglobinemia, they use a dose of 1-2mg/kg.

The dose of methylene blue needed for nitric oxide inhibition and to scavenge free-floating nitric oxide in the blood is surprisingly small. Dr. Raymond Peat has said that 1 to 2mg of methylene blue per day is probably plenty, but for most conditions studied in this book, like Alzheimer's, depression, Cancer, and others, an oral daily dose in the range of 10 to 60mg in divided doses seems to be the ideal.

The dose that appears the most beneficial ranges from 10mg per day all the way up to 2mg/kg methylene blue per day in divided doses.

Aside from life-threatening or emergency situations, like drug overdose or chemical poisoning (methemoglobinemia), where 1-2mg/kg infusions are administered in hospital emergency rooms, I recommend beginning methylene blue therapy with a 10mg per day dose, regardless of your bodyweight.

Begin by adding 10 drops (5mg) to a glass of water or juice and drinking it in the morning, and 10 drops (5mg) to a glass or water or juice and drinking it in the evening before bed. Try this for 1 week, and if it’s well tolerated and you want more, increase your dose to 20mg/day."

Why not read Mark Sloan's book that reveals it all?
