I found your site a few days ago after hearing about DMSO having the ability to do miraculous things. After reading all the information on here, I purchased the 99% pure liquid & 99% pure gel. In particular, I'm interested in using it orally for Alzheimer's & topically for chronic pain caused by a failed back & neck fusion. My father has Alzheimer's & my mom & myself have the chronic pain, but we are wanting to take it orally also. The dilution seems to be a subject that I'm not clear on, with so many using it differently & buying it in different strengths, to use both orally & topically. We used distilled water with the liquid for dilution to paint it on my mom's back & arms, but just winged it as to the strength. She felt unbearable burning on the places she DIDN'T hurt. We had to use a cold washcloth to wipe off the DMSO & then applied aloe vera gel. Strange though, the burning places didn't even turn red. We attempted to take it orally mixing 1 tsp in a glass of water. The taste was horrible! I poured some flavored Aloe Vera in with it, but could never get it palatable. We will have to get it to a palatable taste for my dad to drink it & us also!
My questions are:
1. To be most effective, what is the ratio of 99% pure DMSO/distilled water to apply topically & how should it be applied (cotton, spray, roller, etc...?)
2. What do I use to dilute the 99% pure DMSO gel & to what ratio?
3. What is the best way to mix the 99% pure DMSO liquid to take orally to make it palatable, especially for Alzheimer's patients?
I would appreciate all suggestions!
