If you’ve read our definitive guide to Biocidin you might be wondering what else may Biocidin potentially help with. We’ve got you covered with our top 15 uses of Biocidin. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner prior to use as this guide is for information only.
1. General Cleansing & Detox
It’s estimated that over 70% of the population has some type of dysbosis. Dysbosis is simply an imbalance in your gut or microbiome. It usually means you have more bad bacteria than you should and less good bacteria. There can also be some toxins or pathogens down there as well that would be great to get rid of.
Suggestion: A great place to start with Biocidin to both detoxify and reset the microbiome is with the Comprehensive Cleansing Program or if you want to start smaller you could go with the Bioclear Cleansing Program. It utilizes Biocidin in one of three forms to help mitigate bacteria and biofilms. Biocidin Capsules, Biocidin Liquid and Biocidin LSF.

2. Stomach Flu & Food Poisoning
Has your favorite restaurant let you down or did your kids bring home the stomach flu? Combining Biocidin & GI Detox + may be able to help. For food poisoning and stomach flu use GI Detox first to absorb toxins then Biocidin to address pathogens.
Suggestion: Take 1 capsule of GI detox with water. Wait at least one hour and then follow that up with one capsule of Biocidin up to three times in a day or you can follow the dosing instructions for Biocidin Liquid or LSF if you prefer to use those forms of Biocidin.
3. Yeast and Mold
Conventional Medicine acknowledges fungal infections (such as aspergillosis) and mold allergy (IgE) but our healthcare system is not
currently well endowed to properly identify and treat mold toxicity (mycotoxicosis). This is actually relatively ironic due to the fact that conventional healthcare uses a particular mold toxin (mycophenolic acid) as an immunosuppressive agent for organ transplant rejections surgery.
Mold and Mycotoxins are Signiant factors that contribute to diseases and conditions such as:
• Neurodegenerative Diseases (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, etc.)
• Intestinal Hyperpermeability (‘Leaky Gut Syndrome’)
• GI conditions and disturbances (IBS/IBD)
• Reproductive Disorders and Hormone Imbalances
• Mental Health Disorders (Anxiety, Depression, ADD/ADHD, Autism)
There are obviously many other factors including but not limited to genetics, diet, environment etc….
Biocidin may help systemic or GI Candida and other bacterial overgrowth in the intestinal tract. An initial treatment of 2-3 months is recommended for chronic GI or systemic conditions, with ongoing maintenance use for several more months following clearance.
4. Leaky Gut Syndrome and Endotoxins
Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are endotoxins comprised of structural components of Gram-negative bacteria that may be discovered in plasma through blood testing. The presence of LPS is an indicator of intestinal permeability, or
Leaky Gut Syndrome caused by the imbalance of bacteria in the gut. Basically there are more bad guys than good guys and the bad guys are getting through your intestinal mucosal walls and into your blood stream.
Suggestion: For LPS, a three part program has shown success. First 2-3 drops of Biocidin may be held and swished in the mouth for oral pathogens. Then take 5 drops of Biocidin liquid or 1-2 capsules to address the upper and lower GI tract. Finally, 1-2 capsules of G.I. Detox may be taken between doses of Biocidin for mop up of toxins. This protocol ensures treatment of the entire GI tract.
Maintenance: Some people ask about maintenance dosing. Biocidin Maintenance dosing is 1/4 to 1/2 the moderate dosage level for
another 3-6 months. (For example, if 15 drops of Biocidin are used, then 5 drops could be used with 1-2 capsules a day of Olivirex to maintain results.) Since many people with chronic issues have complications that weaken immune response, this is helpful to avoid recurrences. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner on what the right dosing is for you.
5. Sinus Infections
Sinus infections are miserable. Sinus infections happen when fluid builds up in the air-filled pockets in the face (sinuses), which allows germs to grow. Viruses cause most sinus infections, but bacteria can cause some sinus infections.
Suggestion: For sinus infections you can use 4-8 drops of Biocidin in 6 ozs. of saline solution. This may then be used in a neti pot or a nasal spray. Please make sure to use distilled or otherwise purified water in any neti pot application to avoid any potential amoebae exposure.
This can be used twice daily until improvement is seen and then once a day for up to a month. If things improve you can use this once a week for maintenance.
6. Dental or Periodontal Infections
Dental infections most commonly occur when bacteria invade the pulp and spread to surrounding tissues. Infections can also affect the gums causing gingivitis, which can later cause periodontal disease. As these are normally bacterial in nature Biocidin may help your body get rid of these bacteria.
Suggestion: A few drops of Biocidin may be placed on a toothbrush and applied under the gum line twice daily. A few drops of Biocidin may also may be used as a mouth rinse in water. You may also consider switching toothpaste to Dentalcidin which has 20% Biocidin to support regular healthy teeth and gums.
7. Oral Thrush
Oral thrush — also called oral candidiasis (kan-dih-DIE-uh-sis) — is a condition in which the fungus Candida albicans accumulates on the lining of your mouth. Candida is a normal organism in your mouth, but sometimes it can overgrow and cause symptoms.
Oral thrush causes creamy white lesions, usually on your tongue or inner cheeks. Sometimes oral thrush may spread to the roof of your mouth, your gums or tonsils, or the back of your throat. You may have a white furry tongue and if the fur is scraped off, little red spots are seen underneath. Not everybody who has thrush has tongue symptoms.
Although oral thrush can affect anyone, it’s more likely to occur in babies and older adults because they have reduced immunity. It can also occur in people who take certain medications.
Suggestion: Biocidin may help with eliminating Thrush. For thrush in infants you may use 1 drop directly in mouth twice a day.
Biocidin and Olivirex are both excellent in addressing bacterial infection anywhere in the body. GI bacteria including SIBO, H. plyori, Clostridia, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, Strep, and Staph have responded in before and after lab testing.
Infections of the upper respiratory tract, ear infections, sore throat, sinus infection, and prostate issues may be addressed. Skin conditions such as boils and acne also respond well.
Biocidin and Olivirex used together have shown promise in esistant/biofilm infections such as MRSA and C. Difficile. In Biofilm related infections, patients will sometimes feel a bit worse initially as the matrix is broken down, and toxins released. Use of G.I. Detox between doses helps absorb toxins and decreases die-off.
9. Autism / ASD
Both children and adults with Autism may benefit from Biocidin and Olivirex. An imbalance in gut bacteria is common in people with Autism. Many times the issues are caused by both yeast and bacteria impacting the GI tract, immune system, and creating leaky gut and toxic burden to the liver and other organs.
Neurotoxins from overgrowth of yeast and bacteria can be addressed with use of these formulas.
Suggestion: Dosage ranges from 1-2 drops per 10 lbs body weight per day, taken in divided doses. For example if it was a 100lb person at 2 drops per 10lbs that would be 20 drops divided by three times a day which would equal rounded down 6 drops each time. Please consult your healthcare practitioner before starting on any new supplements as each persons health and conditions are unique. In one child’s case Organic Acid testing showed arabinose levels at 700 and then dropped to 30 after 6 weeks. The child’s behavior which had been extreme was markedly improved.
10. Prostate Issues
Using both Biocidin and Olivirex formulas may support decreasing frequency and improving urination in men having prostate related issues. The thought process behind why this may be effective is due to the viral/bacterial issues in prostate disease. Test cases have shown that PSA’s have come down significantly with consistent use over at least a 3 month period.
Suggestion: For Olivirex take one to two capsules two to three times daily between meals or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Discontinue use should adverse reactions occur.
For Biocidin take one capsule up to three times in a day or you can follow the dosing instructions for Biocidin Liquid or LSF if you prefer to use those forms of Biocidin.
11. Lyme Disease and Co-Infections
Yikes, ticks creep me out just looking at them. Lyme disease can be quite complicated but Biocidin and Olivirex may be used as a follow up or alternative to antibiotics, and to support ongoing treatment. GI detox may also help to support the body. Not to repeat ourselves here but Lyme can be a complicated disease so please consult with your healthcare practitioner before changing anything you’re doing to fight Lyme Disease.
These formulas have been reported to help with many symptoms of Lyme’s Disease. However, they often cause a Herxheimer reaction initially, so begin with the lowest dose and gradually increase based on your tolerance. Cases of Babesia and other co-infections may respond well to botanically based treatments.
Suggestion: The G.I. Detox may be taken between doses on an empty stomach to prevent or address Herx reactions.
In neurological and chronic Lyme the Liposomal Biocidin LSF may be used. Start at 1 pump under the tongue 1 time a day. Every 2 days increase by 1 pump first as 1 pump 2 times a day, then 1 pump 3 times a day, and eventually to 2 pumps 3 times a day. If you develop a Herxheimer die-off reaction, do not increase until it passes. For sensitive people, place 1 pump in 5 ounces of water. Start with 1 ounce 1 time a day. Increase by 1 ounce a day increasing gradually at first to 1 ounce 3 times a day. Eventually, as tolerated, work up to 10 ounces (2 pumps) 3 times a day.
Biocidin has been used in many types of parasites, including Entamoeba histolytica, strongyles, pinworms, and cyst type organisms. Blastocystis is one of the hardest parasites to clear. 3 to 12 months of treatment or longer is needed for chronic cases, as the life cycle of cysts can be quite long.
Suggestion: Use the complete Bioclear Program with Biotonic and Proflora, and add G.I. Detox for Blastocystis or other parasites. A minimum of 3 months using the Bioclear and G.I. Detox is needed. Then, if lab tests show clearance, use the Bioclear Program for 6 days each month for another 6 months. Pinworms and other parasites are easier to eradicate, especially in children and usually a 6 to 8 week course is sufficient.
