How to enter the Odessa catacombs without a guide or tour

If you’re looking for something to do in Odessa, the catacombs are pretty cool. If you haven’t heard of them before, posts on Atlas Obscura and The Bohemian Blog are good places to start.

If you’re like me, you’re already ready to go check it out, but where do you go exactly? I searched around for “how to get in the odessa catacombs yourself” or “odessa catacombs entrance”, but couldn’t find anything. I found several paid tours, but of course it’s not in their interest to give up the actual location of where you enter.

A lot of sites will warn you about getting lost in the caves. I thought their warnings were too cautious, but after firsthand experience, I must agree: they’re a serious danger. I went on a guided tour. About 10 or 15 turns in I thought I was doing pretty well in keeping my bearings. After 20 minutes we’d passed by perhaps 50 possible turn locations, not including all of the possible routes going backwards if you miss one, and my internal compass was disoriented. Either don’t walk more than a few minutes in, or go with a guide. Supposedly several people have gotten lost and died. It’s not surprising (even if only legend).

Our tour guide met us a bit out of the city in a smaller village, Nerubaiske. We parked out car under a tree, and walked to the entrance. There are supposedly dozens of entrances, but I was unable to find any other online besides the official museum (perhaps I wasn’t searching well enough, and, after all, I was only searching in english).

An entrance to the Odessa catacombs is located at 46°32’33.8″N 30°38’06.0″E. (Or decimal form: 46.542713, 30.635005).

If you want to go the safer route (which I didn’t do actually, but plan to next time I’m in Odessa), you can visit the Partisan Glory Museum in the same village (Nerubaiske).

Where to buy MMS (Sodium Chlorite) in Ukraine

I’ve been making huge strides in improving my chronic Lyme/parasites/heavy metals recently, and I intend to write much more about it, but for now I just wanted to post some simple info.

After a personal recommendation, I finally tried MMS. The disinformation campaign on the internet is overwhelmingly strong, and it was successful in scaring me away from trying it before hearing from a friend who had experience with it himself. MMS is Sodium Chlorite mixed with an activator (I use hydrochloric acid), to produce Chlorine Dioxide, a relatively weak oxidizer which is electrically attracted to pathogens, and oxidizes them on impact (steals their electrons, destroying their molecules and reducing them to mere salt or other harmless byproducts).

I originally purchased MMS from this US based supplier: (I recommend the glass kit with hydrochloric acid as the activator). I unfortunately dropped the bag I was using to carry the bottles around on the cold icy ground in Kyiv and broke the Sodium Chlorite bottle (I was really bummed, I felt like I had actually dropped my brain on the floor because of how beneficial it had been over the previous few days).

I still had the hydrochloric acid, so all I needed was 22.4% Sodium Chlorite solution and I was good to go. The instructions on how to make this are basically “open source”, it’s just simple chemistry and Jim Humble describes how to create it in his book (The Master Mineral Solution of the Third Millennium).

By searching for “Хлорит натрия” I found an ad on by someone who produces MMS in Ukraine. Going to insert the text from the ad here, just in case it disappears:

Хлорит натрия — неорганическое соединение, соль щелочного металла натрия и хлористой кислоты с формулой NaClO2, бесцветные кристаллы, растворимые в воде, образует кристаллогидрат.

MMS (Master Mineral Solution и старое название Miracle Mineral Solution) – это водный раствор хлорита натрия 22,4% концентрации (NaCLO2). Это уникальный окислитель, способный проникнуть в тело и уничтожить патоген, являющегося причиной заболевания. ММС также является окислителем ядов тяжелых металлов и самым сильным средством уничтожающим патогены: вирусы, грибки, микробы.

Может использоваться для получения диоксида хлора и приготовления CDS, CDH, CDI путем смешивания с активатором. Активатор может быть добавлен к Вашему заказу при необходимости.

Минимальный объем заказа: 1 литр.

The name listed on the ad was Oleg, phone number +38(063)208-0189. I called and an older lady answered. She didn’t speak any English, but my Russian was good enough to ask a few questions and place an order. I forgot her name, but she was very nice. They’re based in Kharkiv. They sent the package through Nova Poshta and it arrived just a day or two later (I was a little disappointed it was in a plastic bottle, but I suppose glass would’ve been much more difficult to ship). I think the price was 700 UAH for 1 liter (about $25). This is obviously a ton of MMS, and it’s cheaper than prices in the US, as most things are here. Anyway, if you need some MMS or want to give it a shot and you live in Ukraine, give them a call.

I’ve been chronically ill ever since I started taking Accutane in 2011. It’s now February 2017. Numerous doctors could identify my body had serious problems, but nobody could figure out the root cause. There were many. Parasites, heavy metals, and Lyme have been the main underlying issues, but I wouldn’t have had such a health decline if my liver and intestines weren’t destroyed by Accutane and the numerous antibiotics the dermatologists put me on before before that. The skin is a safety valve for you liver, I had so many zits and acne because my liver couldn’t keep up with all the toxic substances inside of me. I likely had acne mainly because of candida, or other parasites I probably had at that time (it’s on my todo list to write about the parasites I’ve gotten out of me. The pictures are the best part!).

The modern US “healthcare” system completely failed me. They’re great at treating acute issues, like if you break your arm or get shot, but horrible at chronic problems. They’ll just put you on health-harming drugs with little benefit. Once you’re on the drugs, you likely won’t get off. This is not the solution to health. I absolutely cannot trust allopathic medicine anymore for my personal health.

I feel so betrayed by the US healthcare system that they will likely never regain my trust again, unless we see some serious changes to the FDA, what studies are funded, and the leveling of the healthcare free market.

I intend to write more, time permitting, over the next several months about my health recovery. There are lots of success stories similar to mine, using the same tools I used, but the propaganda (yes, propaganda, as in the same sort of disinformation campaigns the Russian use) against these methods is so intense, many more will be tricked against using them. The least I can do is honestly write about my personal experience and what my years of research uncovered.
