Just posted a question yesterday about how to tell whether a bottle of DMSO is the real thing, despite what they write on the label. But this seems real important too, so I'm writing my second question again as a separate post. [I had just found an older post from some months ago about using DMSO in oil-pulling, so this would definitely be a factor in that too].
I had written: "I had also dropped some in my mouth with iodine, as Walter Last suggested on is website for possible deep tooth problems (may have a problem with a root canal from over a year ago, which never fully stopped hurting). But then I thought about the 3 fillings I have left, made up of the old style mercury amalgam. Not to mention whatever material it is that filled the root canal.What's the probability that the DMSO would leach the mercury and other materials quickly and directly into my blood (even across the blood-brain barrier)? And more so than would happen anyways without using it?"
While trying to assess whether the DMSO I just received is really what it says it is, I have to question why I occasionally get a brief metallic taste in my mouth, rather than any garlicky or sulfur sort of taste. I get a quick spurt of it, not at the time I take or apply the DMSO, but throughout the day, having used it in the morning.
Maybe it could be from impurities in the DMSO itself? Though it claims to be of pharmaceutical grade 99.9% and up. (It was distributed by a building/materials company, though which claims to have been distributing this for 30 years).
Or maybe it could be from impurities being booted out of my own body, which were caught up somewhere in my system?
Or else, maybe from my amalgam fillings?
If the last possibility were the case... must decide whether it would be better not to use the DMSO at all and switch to MSM only - though I want to continue experimenting with it, with my stubborn tennis elbow (which started in September last year) and many other increasing malfunctions.
Of course, the best thing to do would be to replace the last 3 amalgam fillings I have, but I cannot afford to do that yet.
Is there anyone else with silver fillings who is getting this effect? I'd love to ask this to Walter Last (who wrote this: http://www.health-science-spirit.com/msm.html , along with many other great articles worth reading on that site), but he no longer takes questions.
Oh, by the way, I did put the roll-on bottle of DMSO in the fridge last night and it did freeze solid. But a dropper-full of it in a glass, from the larger bottle, did not solidify at all in the same fridge at the same time. Could there be other chemical compositions which would freeze at 65 F too?
Thanks again. Many great remedies to you all...
