Quite by accident I discovered that by adding a drop of peppermint essential oil to a cotton ball with DMSO on it I did not smell of rotten garlic! My husband with the super nose who could always tell when I was using DMSO never smelled it. I used it 3 times a day for a week and a half before telling him. It's amazing. No bad breath, no stinky skin. I wasn't using an expensive brand either. DMSO is too good to make us social outcasts while using it.

I don't get how do you use the cotton ball to avoid the smell, in fact I am still researching and haven't used DMSO yet (nor have I found it in Mexico City), but it sounds great for several ailments in my family, so I'm interested in this tip to avoid the smell. Thanks

I'm sorry it sounded confusing. I use a cotton ball to apply the DMSO to my skin. Now I just add a drop or two of peppermint essential oil to the wet cotton ball. I have never used DMSO internally so I do not know how that would work.

I have seen many posts here about DMSO. I found some that is 90% DMSO gel. When I mix it with aloe juice to get it to less than 70% solution to apply topically, it gets quite hot for several seconds. This happens less if I mix it with castor oil. I don't understand what is happening chemically.

It seems as if I have seen it said that you can't mix DMSO with other things ahead of time and must mix right before using. Is that correct? I was wanting to try DMSO and Colloidal Silver in a spray bottle for bug bites.

I appreciate your opinions. Thank you.

Hello Mrs Hill from Arkansas...When you paint DMSO + aloe vera onto your skin it is a unique characteristic of DMSO that it will transport the aloe vera through the skin transdermally and into the blood. DMSO is able to do this by increasing the porosity or permeability of the individual skin cells which are then able to allow passage of the aloe vera through the skin cells as well. It is this sudden increase in skin porosity or permeability that causes the warm feeling on your skin which is nothing to worry about and is entirely normal when using DMSO topically.

When you paint the DMSO and aloe vera onto your skin, make sure that this area is not sopping wet with DMSO +aloe vera. All you need is a thin damp layer painted onto the skin for best effect.

There is also no reason why you shouldn't use the DMSO in a sprayer. But please be aware that DMSO can dissolve some plastics. So if you're not sure then perhaps best to use a glass sprayer. So using colloidal silver and DMSO in a glass sprayer should be fine.

[SIDE EFFECTS]   The warm feeling is actually a reaction with the water in your skin, not an increase in porosity. DMSO doesn't increase porosity or permeability; it simply dissolves a variety of compounds and is able to transport them quickly through your skin. It's nothing to worry about but it's the exact same thing you noticed when diluting it with water to a much lesser scale.

Hello everyone, my name is Justin. I just joined this forum today and I am very happy to be here. I am a 46 year old male.

I have some questions concerns aboat DMSO mixed with lemon juice. ever since first reading the book DMSO Natures Healer, and reading hundreds of personal testimonials I started to take 99.99% DMSO on and off over the years. I take it both topically and internally, making sure to dilute it down to 70% or less. I take it to try and relieve the aches and pains of life...surfing and rock climbing. As prevention to the calcification that comes with aging. I take it because I completely trust and believe in it's curative powers and health benefits.

Aboat two weeks ago I topically applied a mixture of DMSO 70% with fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh aloe Vera pulp, and magnesium chloride oil to my head, face, neck back, chest and stomach. Then the next day, I had severe shooting pains in my stomach in the large colon area. Excuse me for being so graphic...lots of diarrhea, gas and the need to go to defecate many times a day. But I have no acid reflux. And otherwise my body feels great. This has been going on now for the last two weeks. I am concerned because I have never had any stomach problems in the past. I have been a vegetarian for the last 25 years, feeling strong and healthy with lots of energy. my digestion has always been good and regular. I eat very well, try and keep well hydrated and most importantly try to feed my mind positivity, love and kindness.

My question is ...what is going on down inside of my guts? I spent the last year in south east Asia, and six months in India. But I had no health issues. I didn't get sick. I am thinking that it may be the result of adding the lemon juice. I say that only because I have never added lemon juice to the equation topically. I have in the past ingested DMSO with MMS and lemon juice and or citric acid but I have never applied it topically. And also I have in the past practically bathed my whole body in DMSO from head to foot, with no negative side effects. So I am thinking that maybe the combination is awaking and or battling parasites or worms that I wasn't even aware of having. maybe all this funkiness is my colon cleaning itself out. But I have done several colon cleanses over the years and experimented with all kinds of natural medicines and cures. I don't know. I can't help but be concerned that maybe it was not a good idea to put this combination directly over my belly. I am concerned that maybe the pure undigested lemon juice, is burning my colon.

I will be doing a "complete dry fast" no water, no food over the coming weekend. I am curious to see if it will help to resolve or at least alleviate my upset belly.

If anyone has any thoughts aboat this. Questions and or comments, I would really appreciate it.

I am a big advocate of DMSO and MMS well as fresh squeezed lemon juice ....yummm. I drink it every day.

Again thanks to everyone. Thank you Ted. Thank you Earth Clinic

all my best to everyone......Justin

Hello Justin,

I, too, am a DMSO advocate and use it regularly as you use it topically and internally and have done so "off and on" as you said.

While it's natural to think of "association" as "causation" .... my first take on your reaction is that the cause is not...NOT.... the DMSO combo. It just so happened that a case of Montezuma's revenge hit you at about the same time that you took the DMSO combo.

As evidence, if the DMSO were the cause, you would have been over it in a day or two. But the fact that you continue to suffer tells me you have a very bad case of bacterially induced gastro infection.

And you're living in Mexico. I visited Albania/Romania a year ago and had read in the autobiography "MD" which is the life of a parasitalogist that Montezuma's is actually world wide and can be caused by bacteria and virus. There is a lot around the Mediterranean as well as Latin America. Well, it hit me in a big way, but I was expecting it....never felt anything like it before; like a fist in my stomach and I went straight to my Apple Cider Vinegar ..... and bought more a few days later. Avoided the huge consequences, but barely.

Maybe I'm wrong...and I look forward to see what others say. But a die off? I don't think so.

Get on ACV asap... two tablespoons in glass of water...drink over an hour...repeat two hours later. See if that improves and if so, you will know the cause was pathogens and not DMSO.

PS....I have NEVER had any adverse reaction with DMSO...and taken it for decades.

Justin, I think you delivered a huge shot of magnesium to your body. DMSO plus magnesium plus large amount of body coverage. It's possible the magnesium is causing the gas and diarrhea. For two weeks--seems like a long time--but it was probably a lot of magnesium! Nothing to worry about--it is pretty benign.

Hello to Dave at Fountain Inn.

Thanks so much for yor response. Sorry I did not get back to you sooner. I just broke my first fast- a 72 hour dry fast. Wow. That was by far one of the most intense experiences that I have ever willingly put myself through. Especially because for the last two weeks my bowels were totally out of wack and having so much diarea. I think I went into the fast very much dehydrated. Then on top of that I am and always have been very thin with probably -50 % body fat. So I immediately turned into a living skeleton. That is why I didn't continue. I was in fact feeling really good. No healing reactions to speak of. actually I had a surprising amount of mental and physical energy. at times I felt like I was flying. And my bowels feel much better, having given them a vacation. But in the end I just let myself be consumed by fantasies of water, flowing rivers and pools of sweet colorful juice. I was living always just out of reach of the most mouth life saving mirage. And finally on the third night when I first looked at myself in the mirror I was shocked to see the grissle I had reduced myself too. I was thinking to continue fasting but I was concerned that if I passed through another night I just may disappear all together.

Now I am two days into breaking the fast. Slowly slowly. chewing my water and fresh coconut water. Yesterday I drank a the juice of the most heavenly watermelon. Today more water, coconut water and maybe some mango juice. mmmm I can't wait.

you may be right Dave aboat the Montezuma's Revenge. I have never had it before so it very well could be that. last month I inquired at a few "naturista" - health food/ supplement stores for ACV. I thought maybe I could get the good organic stuff, but they didn't have it. I was told that I could find it in the supermarket. Would definitely prefer the organic. Man that stuff is delicious. Now after spending more time on this Earth Clinic web site, I have read aboat how many people are using ACV for everything under the sun. So I will definitely try to get my hands on some.

That's cool that your were in Romania and Albania. Man I have wanted to check out Romania and that part of the world for quite some time. I hope to get over to Europe this summer to walk El Camino de Santiago. Then after was thinking that I could slowly make my way over to Macedonia and then maybe Bulgaria and then possibly winter over in Romania....hahaha, wouldn't that be nice and bone chilling. then pass the spring somewhere in Albania. Yes it is a very nice "what if" journey. I know one could spend a life time exploring each one of those countries, so maybe I'll make it to Macedonia and never leave.

Cool man. hey thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it. And like I said I am a big fan of DMSO. I am very curious to personally witness her healing powers in the future. If I may ask, why have you been using DMSO?

Yes this is a wonderful site. It feels like a community with concerned people trying to help each other out....such a beautiful thing. I spent a considerable amount of time reading aboat peoples personal testimonials using all kinds of treatments. most recently I have been reading all that I can on the uses of Turpentine for healing. I always thought it was poison but I see know that I was wrong. So I would love to get my hands on the purest Turpentine. As well as Fulvic acid/ Shilagit.....Nascent Iodine, Ormus. The list goes on.

Ok Dave, all the very best to you.....Justin

Hello Nanowriter from Hotspot Texas,

Thanks for your reply concerning whether or not I funked my stomach up with the lemon juice/ DMSO combination. And sorry aboat not responding sooner.

Yes you maybe right aboat the dose of transdermal magnesium. I have not been using it for very long. Several times I have given my body a very lite all over with it mixed with DMSO and had no adverse reactions. But yes it could very well be as you've said.

I recently just did a three day dry fast. No food no water. I feel like my entire being just went through the fire so to speak. So I will see, now that I am drinking water and juice for the next few days how my guts respond.

Yes as you said it isn't anything to serious. All is good.

Alright then, I wish you a wonderful day and many days to come....justin

Hello Justin, I use DMSO anytime I want to carry a substance through colloidal silver. On the subject of ACV, you can use the kind you buy in grocery store. I have used both kinds...And grocery store works also...Normally use organic but either least for me to kill infections.

Hi, my question is to all who have taken DMSO internally and Bill / Ted if they too have tried internally. Has any body noticed it's effect on the blood pressure, whether it lowers it or it tends to increase it. I would like to know it's effect on systolic as well as diastolic blood pressure. My view is, it should help in high BP to reduce it. Kindly those who are taking DMSO internally for other reasons, please monitor your blood pressure and revert back with your experience. it will help many others the use of DMSO. Thanks.

I don't think there is a connection between the DMSO and Lemon juice and what you have experienced and described here. I have done some pretty crazy stuff with DMSO and I have not experienced anything like what you have described as a result. From my experience DMSO does nothing but good and positive things for the body of the man. It is a non synthetic product, I.e. not made by man. I've taken DMSO with water and vitamins, and Omega 3 fats and magnesium and cayenne extract and glycerine and I've had it before and after drinking apple cider vinegar (Malic acid). And I am not done experimenting. I have tried one (1) ounce of 99.99 pure DMSO in 20 ounces of distilled water twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the after noon. I have consumed about 2 quarts of pure DMSO since I began posting here and I haven't been posting here for that long.

Hi Baldev...It's very timely that you have asked about DMSO's effect on blood pressure. For the last 3 days I have been experimenting with supplementing just one teaspoon of 100% DMSO on its own(outside mealtimes) per day with a glass of water. Out of interest, I have been measuring my BP every day with a wrist monitor. My normal blood pressure is 110/70. After I started taking the DMSO I found that my BP didn't vary at all from my normal readings. I measured my BP about an hour after taking the DMSO. I am also going to try adding lugol's iodine and other nutrients individually to the oral DMSO to see its effects on my body.

It's well known that Dr Stanley Jacobs, who is the guru on the use of DMSO since the 70s, has been taking one teaspoon of DMSO everyday with a glass of water for decades. He maintains that DMSO is one of the best antioxidants on the planet. DMSO also contains sulfur which is anti-aging and acts as an efficient detoxer for the body. When it is oxidized, DMSO becomes MSM(also known as DMSO2 or methylsufonylmethane) another highly useful nutrient for the body. The FDA, the drugs companies and the medical profession all hate DMSO's unique and highly useful transdermal carrier properties. After all, if you could use something like DMSO to deliver drugs and nutrients directly through the skin and into the blood -- then people could easily doctor themselves at home very cheaply because this would make the necessity for injections redundant -- just think of the money stream lost from the medical profession because of this. And that's only one very good reason to use DMSO.

Hi Bill, Thanks a lot for the prompt reply and congratulations for having 110/70 as your normal BP. Don't you think that the body's defense system may not allow DMSO to bring the BP further down, where as if the BP readings were say 180/100, it would bring it to 150/90, just my guess. Kindly comment on this when ever you get an opportunity to use it on some one who has high BP. My feeling is DMSO must help in bringing the BP down and it is a better bet then taking beta blockers or any other medication. Thanks

Hi Baldev...Unfortunately, I have not read any actual research of DMSO being used to bring down blood pressure but I have found testimonials that seems to confirm that it can help to lower higher blood pressure. There is research here which seems to suggest that DMSO is particularly good at reducing spinal pressure and high blood pressure in the brain after injury -- this is mainly due to DMSO's ability to open up blood vessels. It is also a strong antioxidant. Its most key and unique feature is as a transdermal carrier of nutrients (which are not normally well absorbed by the skin) from the skin directly into the blood in high amounts. It appears to be the case that DMSO will carry most chemicals/nutrients that have a molecular weight of below 1000.

So if you want large amounts of nutrients like iodine, niacin, vitamin c, glutathione or even ALA delivered locally in much higher quantities into the blood than from the intestines via digestion, then using DMSO will do it without problems.

One thing that I've also learned from using DMSO transdermally is that you should not really use DMSO as a transdermal carrier to put acid forms of nutrients directly into the blood using DMSO -- examples of such acid nutrients being Ascorbic Acid, Alpha Lipoic Acid, citric acid, ACV(It's acid!! ) etc. Always use the chemical salt forms which are the product of Acid/Alkali reactions, which tend to be much more alkaline and safer.

Generally, I usually always add a couple of drops lugols iodine to the DMSO whenever I'm using it transdermally with other nutrients -- the iodine will kill the pathogens topically on the skin so that these live pathogens are not also dragged into the blood to perhaps cause more problems in the body. So Iodine is my added disinfectant whenever I use DMSO on the skin. Hydrogen peroxide is another one you can use to pre-disinfect the skin area before DMSO use. After using the DMSO on the skin, its also best to rub in aloe vera oil to help prevent any itching, dryness or irritation caused by the DMSO.

I have no idea what my blood pressure is in terms of numbers. Here is how I know if a something works for me or not, I know how I feel. When I lie to sleep and if I can't relax then I know there is something wrong. If I don't fall asleep or can't get comfortable then I know I have to look carefully at what I did that day.

A very good example of this and I have repeated this over the course of years because sometimes I forget how MSG affects me. If I eat a product containing MSG I can't sleep, I can't relax. It feels like high blood pressure but I can't prove it cause I have not tested it.

Be very careful with DMSO. It's a great product but remember it will carry anything it's connected to through the skin - bacteria, viruses, dirt. So while its anti-inflammatory properties are great and you hook it up with the Ellawood to get it in, it can also take anything else so you have to have a scrupulous technique and make sure your hands are clean. Make sure you got medical grade DMSO for that matter.

Hi Dee...I think that it is perhaps a little misleading to say that DMSO will carry 'anything' through the skin.

Here is comment from Dr Stanley Jacob who has been researching with DMSO since the 1960s. He is the guru on DMSO use:

"Rumors of DMSO's ability to transport chemicals through the skin have been greatly exaggerated. DMSO will carry a minimal amount of other chemicals with a molecular weight of less than 1000 but will not carry bacteria or viruses."

Be careful w dmso! It is very powerful and is a "carrier" which means it carries whatever is on your skin (assuming molecule is not to large) through the skin barrier and into your blood stream. I am aware that for skin infections, triple antibiotic with Vaseline (ingredient in ointment), and dmso will carry the antibiotic into the bloodstream, but the vaseline remains behind because the molecule is too large to be carried with the dmso. However, combining with pain medication can cause a deadly reaction and stop the heart because certain numbing formulas can pass through skin to bloodstream. You could have poisoned yourself if certain ingredients got into your bloodstream that are not meant for your bloodstream. One way to discover the facts is to learn 1st which ingredients are bad for bloodstream, and then before you worry, determine if the molecule could have passed thru. A chemistry blog site may help u if u can ask scientists questions. If it were me, I would stop taking until I learned further. I would them go to a health food store or contact poison control to determine what I could ingest to clear my body. If in fact what u ingested was safe, you could be experiencing a herx heimer reaction im which the body has recognized an infection and inflammation is the result.

Posted by Alicia (Abq., NM) on 09/22/2014

I've been suffering with a very large bone spur under my Achilles tendon on my heel. Every step feels like a knife stabbing me. I read about DMSO and bones spurs and decided to buy some. I got the gel 70% mixed with aloe vera. I've been putting it on for 2 days and I cannot believe the difference! I am thrilled! The only thing that bothers me is that when I put it on my heel, I have a tightness in my chest that I don't normally have. I take thyroid meds and am wondering if it is increasing the absorption. I also take several BP meds and I don't think it's bothered those. Has anyone else felt it has affected them in this way? And, should I dilute it with distilled water or what. I think this is really really effective and would like to continue using it but don't want to mess myself up.

DMSO is known to potentate other substances, such as drugs. The Blood pressure drugs will be much more effective in getting into the cells, and work better. I read a person could use up to 10 times less medication and get the same results. Make sure you don't take the BP meds at the same time you apply the DMSO. Make sure they are separated by 4 or more hours.

Blood Pressure drugs and DMSO should never be mixed together or taken with each other. The pressure will fall too low.

If you are brave enough, you could take 1/10th BP drug and DMSO and monitor BP to see what the effects are. You might even be able to stop taking the BP drugs all together with time and experience. Just be careful.

[WARNING!]   DO NOT DO WHAT NICK SUGGESTED. First of all, taking your blood pressure medication with DMSO will cause the amount consumed to rapidly filter into your bloodstream, which may cause a precipitous drop in your blood pressure. Second of all, blood pressure medications are designed to reach a certain concentration in your blood for a given amount of time; even though it will be more rapidly absorbed, the final concentration, if you use 1/10th of a pill, will be 1/10th of normal. This is a bad idea all around.

The thing I that I got wicked drunk that night and very very sick! I am wondering if it is possible that the other 1% is alcohol or Acetone in the DMSO and if that is what contributed to me getting that "drunk" feeling...?

Quote from an review: "There is a Medical Grade and an Industrial Grade. You should ONLY use Medical Grade. The other is sold at hardware stores and is toxic. Furthermore, anything you put on your skin at the same time you use DMSO will penetrate immediately, so make sure it is not toxic. Ditto for clothing with strong dyes if your skin is still wet with DMSO. You will get 'garlic breath' seconds after use, which lasts 4-6 hrs. This is the sulfur breaking down in your body and producing sulfuric breath as waste, while also delivering oxygen to the muscles which are healed many times faster. This has also helped certain autistic children absorb somatropin (?) thru a dermal patch, which has alleviated a lot of food issues with certain types of autism... the rest can be read here: ;)

[YEA]   The side effects I have experienced with DMSO are mostly non existent. Slight side affect is odor. Some people think the odor is sulfur and some call it onions or garlic. The value of the relief of DMSO is so great that the tiny little problem of the odor is so insignificant and superficial that it ought to be ignored. If odor truly a problem for the significant people like your husband or your wife then plan your DMSO therapy together like husband and wife. (The two are one flesh according to Scripture). Slight irritation at site of application that goes away after a little time is one other small side affect. It might help to look at the side effects of some of the Poisons err, Drugs that those doctors try to shove down your throat. Now those are "side effects" that I can't live with.

I don't notice the smell of DMSO for the most part. Apparently some people do. I had a clerk in a cheap store tell me today that she wanted me to do something about my odour because she said that somebody complained about the smell when I was in the store. I asked her how she knew that it was me? Then I asked the other obvious question: Are you going to shop for me? Where am I going to shop? Then I told her, "I have to take the medication that I have to take".

I didn't hear another word out of her. But she did not bother to even bag up my stuff that I bought.

I know there are many people taking DMSO and I have never heard of anyone complaining to anyone else.

I am thinking that people who smoke cigarettes may be more sensitive to the smell of DMSO. Can anyone echo that?

Hi, I have been reading about DMSO and ordered some from the U.K. I was reading how to see if you have the right one and to put it in the frig and after 2 hours it should turn solid( like ice). Then when the frozen bottle is upside down little rivulets of water flow through the ice.. Mine took a lot longer, many, many hours and it took all day out of the frig to thaw out.

Before taking it orally for very bad back pain I just wanted to clarify if I have the right one? This article was on the site DMSO The Real Miracle Solution, Health and Wellness.

Can some please let me know if this is a safe DMSO and if not could you let me know where I could buy the correct one? I feel that this is not a health question as much as is it the right one. Please respond to my inquiry.

Thank you, Colleen.

I learned about DMSO from watching Tony Pantalleresco's YouTubes, one of which is about using DMSO and turpentine and salts in a bath. I had first used DMSO that I bought at the health food store 99.9% pure for $13 for 4 oz. The one at the feed store was 99.9% pure and $9 for 16 oz. So I bought that and have seen no ill effects. What is medicinal grade DMSO? How can it be more pure than 99.9%? So I guess the horse DMSO is medicinal grade. Does anyone know what is what with this issue? Am I missing something?

Also, I have not dared to take this internally but I guess a lot of you do. I will have to read more about it.

I have enjoyed reading so many of your posts. I also read that DMSO should not be used daily but some of you have used it daily, and internally, for decades. And there you are: alive!

Dear Glo,

I have 99.9% DMSO that I got at the farm store. I just dilute it for topical use. I believe that it is not recommended to use more than 70% DMSO topically. So, you could dilute 2/3 DMSO with 1/3 distilled water to get about 66%, which is close enough, I think. I have also diluted it half and half with castor oil, Colloidal Silver, Aloe Gel, and Mullein Root tincture, depending on what I am treating.

I have found it helpful and hope you do, too!

First time trying DMSO. Just received my order (via Amazon), distributed by a construction/materials company. Claimed to be pharmaceutical grade (at least 99.9% pure, and undiluted), with a glass roll-on bottle and a 16oz refill bottle which is #2 HDPE plastic, the recommended material.

I heard that it doesn't have a scent, or very little. But this stuff has a chemically smell (not sulfur or garlic or other things described as normal). How would I know if it's actually what it claims to be?

I have been using it for a few days, straight on the skin, sometimes with coconut oil after application. There's only a fleeting and mild heating-up sensation. Haven't experienced any garlicky taste. Some itching later, but not more than I get from using transdermal magnesium chloride, which is really itchy to me. Except that with the DMSO I sometimes get itching in places where I had not even applied it to (like the back of my neck, which broke out in itchy bumps like mosquito bites after sweating).

Another question: 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 leech 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 it?

I have been drinking a bit of DMSO too, in mint tea (with a shot of Borax dissolved in purified water, and sometimes a few drops of Lugol's, and ACV which had eggshells steeped in it for calcium). Probably not more than a quarter to a half teaspoon of DMSO yet. I'm undecided as to whether I should be doing this or not, but seemed to be worth a try.

I will be getting magnesium chloride, and a bottle of colloidal mineral liquid, ascorbic acid powder, and MSM powder. Maybe to make a mixed solution with, to add some DMSO to and drink.

Any suggestions or potential reasons this may not be a good idea?

I'm always surprised about people who overdo or overdose or overtake things, substances be it good or bad! Do you really have to take so many things. All natural doesn't mean all good or safe. DMSO can be dangerous if you don't study about it. It brings everything that touches into your blood stream. Many years ago an Irish woman who used DMSO died but also she was under other medication, because of this DMSO got a bad name in US. It's written cause unknown. I guess she was taking other medications and may be DMSO triggered and brought into her system more than she was supposed to. Please read carefully what you must be careful when you use DMSO. NOT only DMSO though, better not to take too many kinds of things other than health food and drinks. More doesn't mean better often less is better heal slowly. Your filtering system can only take that much to detox and throw out of your body, if you do too much in a short period of time, your liver, kidneys, colon and bladder can't throw out toxins as fast as you detox your system. You MUST give your filtering system time to work accordingly. You are abusing your organs by taking too many things which you believe that they are good for health. Being Extreme is a DANGEROUS ATTITUDE. Balance your mind first then think of physical health.

A friend sent me the book, The Persecuted Drug, The Story of DMSO. It was published in 1973 but is chilling how ruthless the FDA was then and now. How they punish people for the pure pleasure of it and protect the mamoth drug industry. I worked for Crown Zellerbach in the 60's and was aware of DMSO, but not like this book describes. It was made in their mill in Boguloosa, La. and I knew the supervisor of the plant. He said no employee that worked in that area had ever had a cold or the flu. All employees stole the product to give to old relatives who had arthritis and such. They all knew of it's benifits first hand.

Anyway, I encourage you to buy and read this old book. DMSO is a product that could revolulationize medicine if given a chance. You can use it on a million dollar horse, but it is against the law for you to receive its benifits. Why? It is too cheap and is not patentable.

I promise you that if you read this book and don't shed a few tears, then you are a hard person. The FDA is exposed with this story. They ruined a number of good dedicated doctors to prove that they are omnipotent.

As Dr Jacob says, horses don't know about plecabo's or double blind tests. It it works , they run, if not , then they don't run. Sounds right to me.

Please read the book.

Hi Robert Henry, I read the same book as well. The one book that led me to this one mentioned on your post was titled The Heritic. I believe that is the title, by Mendelsohn(?). He mentioned DMSO aside from many interesting facts that involved the medical field during the fiasco with DMSO and the FDA. I had forgotten about DMSO until I read the first Trudeau book about a year ago and noticed that he mentioned The Heritic book in his. I have been slowly purchasing the books that Trudeau has mentioned in his book to help me along in understanding DMSO. Very fascinating. I still want to find out how I can orally take it if what I have is the 99.9% gel with 10% distilled water. I am psyched out with this stuff as well!

HU U MYSTIC SAGE, , , , , , , , , ,

This is not the only natural medical thing that gives me concern that the Traditional Medical folks fight tooth and nail. We have cleaned out our blood vessels with EDTA Chelation and have used the CEDSA to learn of the parasites that have taken us over. That is now a thing of the past. We main line Glutithione to avoid Dementia. We have yet to receive the blood test results that was developed by Purdue U that tells you 5 to 7 years ahead of time that you have cancer on the way and has a protocol to combat the problem. That will be a biggie.

These are all things to keep you from having these problems. I am just a lowly Ch E. But I think DMSO works best as a carrier in an IV situtation. Dr. Jacob is the authority on DMSO, but the Gov. has cowed this great man.

My latest project is to use a lowly Egg Plant solution to treat the Actinic Kerartosis which covers my face before it becomes cancerous.

Love you all ======ROBERT HENRY=====

Hi guys,  It is a heart breaking story. It makes me outraged that something so healing has been suppressed by those who were originally meant to promote the public interest. Of course we see this with many cheap, unpatentable therapies such as oxygen, IV vitamin c for cancer, using your own blood that has been subjected to uv light for hidden viruses etc. The list of forbidden, cheap, life saving herbs and therapies is quite long. If we had better education about and access to these things all chronic illness would be much easier to cure. Pharmaceuticals and surgery would become virtually obsolete.

I put a complete copy of the book DMSO: The Persecuted Drug by Pat McGrady as a mirror of the other copy so that there is a second copy on the web. Having several backups of information like this is helpful. What I see is that the Medical Industrial Complex has control issues and they don't like people learning too much and they use the police power of the state to enforce their arbitrary codes/laws. There is no money to be made in fees on DMSO. It is not patentable because it is a natural substance. This is a miracle substance and it is cheap and it does major good. Nobody is interested in cheap because there is no profit to be made. There is no money telling people to use a product they can go to the store and buy themselves. Http://

To Mystic Sage, you had asked a question about your DMSO gel that was 99.9 percent pure. The gel formulation of DMSO contains an agent in it called carpobol and I quote and just substitute the DMSO for the first word. [0162] (Ophthalmic) [editor note here: DMSO] gels suitable for treatment of the eye include a compound or compounds of the invention suspended in a hydrophilic base, such as Carpobol-940 or a combination of ethanol, water and propylene glycol (e.g., in a ratio of 40:40:20). A gelling agent, such as hydroxylethylcellulose, hydroxypropylcellulose, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose or ammoniated glycyrrhizinate, is used. A preservative and/or a tonicity agent may optionally be included. --[Source:] And this site of the company that makes it and appears owns it: What about just plain DMSO, Capeech? .

[YEA]   This week I did something different. For two day I drank two tablespoons of 99.99 DMSO once in the morning and once in the evening and each time it was in 20 ounces of pure water and drank over a period of time. I am here to report what happened. I felt good. I went outside in sub zero temperatures and shoveled snow for short periods of time.I was painless for 2 days. I felt like a younger man as far my energy level goes. It messed with my appetite because I did not feel like eating at regular intervals which helps me control my blood sugar stability. So that has to be watched more carefully next time. Symptoms of blood sugar roller coaster were apparent by the end of the second day. It is reactive hypoglycemia (see Blaylock on the internet video section). Before I went outside I rolled cayenne extracted in alcohol onto my back with some DMSO too. That helped me feel really warm in all the winter clothing. I also took 250 mg of Niacin before going out side too and it was perfect because the flushing and heat generated in the skin kept me feeling perfectly comfortable. I had to come in for my ears sake and eyes sake. I used common sense but it seemed to help me accomplish what needed done on those two extremely cold days. That is my report on the DMSO.

I am looking into this idea of "Oil Pulling". And if it does work, why would DMSO not be a good idea? DMSO has some of the characteristics of an oil. I started last night with DMSO and I did it this morning too. I used pure 99.9 percent pure DMSO. It has a warming effect. I did not find it objectionable at all. (If I kick the bucket, please ignore anything I have ever said because I never met Jack, and not know Jack).

I would be careful using DMSO as an oil pulling "oil". The bacteria from any dental plague in your mouth will get absorbed into your bloodstream and might cause heart problems like Infectious Endocarditis. If I were you, I would only use the traditional oils that have been used for centuries in this particular technique.

Put some hydrogen peroxide with the dmso. That should help kill any infecting microbes.

[YEA]   It does not make sense to me that the DMSO would draw into the blood stream a large thing like a bacteria. It is too big. I would not think it could make it though the blood barrier. From what I understand is that DMSO transports light, small molecules.

My issue with "Oil-Pulling" with DMSO is the tooth throbbing I get in one of my mid teeth. I do like the sensation of the warming that I get though. Like a gentle heat pad for the mouth. I don't "Oil-Pull" with DMSO every day.

[YEA]   Don't forget about Jim Humble's MMS Miracle Mineral Solution ( chlorine dioxide ) the best virus bacteria parasite killer known to man, when used with dmso is even better.

Quick question. I am using the ACV but would also like to try the DMSO, Vit B, FAcid mixture. Does anyone recommend a particular brand of DMSO?

I have been very satisfied with the DMSO I bought from Robert L. Brock at his DMSO is 99.996 % pure. That is good enough for me. All I could find local is 99 % and that leaves 1% of unknown. That might be fine for a silver coin but not for DMSO. I know this stuff is pure because it freezed right at the tempurature of the chemical. It was 65 degrees and it was frozen solid. The freezing point is 65.4 degrees of pure DMSO.

It appears a good explanation of what DMSO is, and why it can be effective can be found by doing google search for "dmso kehr tutor".

Hi I wanted to know some exact ways I can use dmso. IT's a 70% dmso with aloe. I'm using it for some acne scars on my arms and thighs some are keloid. I just wanted to know if there are any precautions since it's a solvent or how to clean the area or anything helpful

[YEA]  Glad to see DMSO is alive and well! I was a ballet dancer in the 70's and DMSO was very popular except that no one could stand you on stage because of the odor. Then, when I became a full time massage therapist, I always shared the benefits of DMSO. My question is; are there any DMSO Clinics? Also, I am about to share DMSO with my friend who is suffering with much round the clock pain as a result of many surgeries for her Ovarian Cancer. No cancer now, but infections, fever and pain!!!

What exactly are you using the DMSO for? Also, it is very unlikely that H2O2 spray would "cause" the flu.

Response- to take anything above the chest 5-10% solution. Anything below the chest you can go higher. Internal use I have mixed it with wormwood in a 5% soultion and have used tsp amounts without any issue--remember this is a solvent so as a solvent this will penetrate lipids and the brain is a lipid so anything north of the chest line- reduce this will apply as well with some of the essential oils. Some are potent solvents and penetrents. Hope this helped.

Have you considered that the flu like symptoms might have been a detox reaction? I use H2O2 and it has greatly helped in reducing yeast issues on skin and I believe in my body.

Does anyone know how serious the side effects of DMSO are? I am mostly worried about possible sterilaztion before I start using it... Also- what supstances can it be mixed with? Colloidal Silver? Hydrogen peroxide? How do you apply it?
