After taking Xrays with my first chiropractor after a bad fall, he showed me how I had almost no cushioning between my discs and that he estimated I had 6 more months without pain before I felt it. Well, 5 1/2 months later I had what felt like a toothache on each side of my lower back. I was like, "hell to the no" and ran for my DMSO bottle.
I like to use it straight and not watered down. I use a thin layer of Castor Oil first as it is the only oil viscous enough to protect the skin. I started with 7 drops on each side, 2x per day. DMSO actually heals on a molecular level, so I needed less and less as time went on.
A few weeks ago I was telling a friend about what DMSO did for me, and suddenly realized I had not put any DMSO on my back in 2 months! So from now on, I will just apply a "maintenance dose" 1x a month to keep things good. So, know how much you started with and be prepared to cycle down by either using fewer drops per treatment or skipping days, etc. It's not like a big Harma med where you have to take it forever and usually need more to get the same result, DMSO is the opposite!!
Happy healing, everybody!
I use DMSO for back pain or if I get pains from working out and it works great. I also used it in a spray bottle with coconut oil to get rid of an abscess and both every time I use it, it's worked great. I have been using a mix of 50-50 ratio. After a bit of research, maybe this is too strong? The only things I don't like about using this product is, it makes my breath smell garlicky or toxic my partner would say and my skin on my lower legs gets really dry, does this happen to anyone else?
Dmso is amazing for stiffness and pain. Totally helped me with my back pain. I had horrible stiffness in morning mid back and could hardly get out of bed and after a few weeks of 1 tablespoon every other day it was gone. It is totally safe...
I have a question. I did some labour one day a week ago and think I may have over done it. I felt a pain in my lower back on the right side at the time and I thought to myself that I had done some kind of over exertion and hurt myself.
The pain in the lower back region began getting worse and worse and I could barely move to get out of bed after I lay down. I had to urinate into a bottle because of pain when I tried to move my hips off the bed.
I broke out into a sweat when I finally was able to stoop and thought I was going to pass out so I lay back down again.
Early this morning I had to get up out of bed because the urine bottle was full and I had terrible cramps in my legs so I thought to get some magnesium into my body.
I got to the chair where the DMSO gel container was on the desk and thought to try applying it to the lower back region. It was almost immeadiate that the pain was manageable for me to walk up stairs.
This pain does not feel like back pain of which I am familiar.
I can move my legs and arms just fine.
HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
I am not up to snuff. Had a fall this week while stacking firewood and my chiropractor is having little effect. I am turning on my back FIR EMITTERS and painting my lower back with 70% DMSO gel. That is helping mor' better , which is Southern for better. Dang, just because you are hurting there is no reason you can't have fun with it.
Cleaning my arms of sun damage is on the back burner. Again a Southern term. Save your Confederate money because the South is going to rise again. Just messin with you. What I am learning after these falls is that I can't do what I did as a youth. That is hard sayins.
It means that I got to start acting like an old person and that brings tears to my eyes. I know I'm on the shady side of the mountain but that is not where I want to be. I jus got to slow down and do what my ole body allows.
You young whipper snappers need to appreciate where you are and take advantage of Earth Clinic to keep yourself young. When it goes, then it goes and you can't bring it back. Most of us will not have pain in the next life. We will be dancing on the streets of gold.
Sorry for this pitty party, but I ain't feel too good.

I had slept on a bad mattress for one night too many. I woke up one day with sharp pains in my back. It made work very difficult, but I figured it would eventually go away on it's own. No dice. One day, after a week of back pain, I took about 1/2 teaspoon of DMSO to help my immune system recover after Lyme. I didn't realize it at first, but the back pain was gone within hours (probably sooner), and it NEVER came back! I even slept on that bad mattress again! lol not smart...
I should also add that some people are very sensitive to the smell of DMSO, and I "offended" at least one person.
Found some roll on DMSO in a closet I was cleaning out and found your website. I have lower back pain and I put some on it. Already, it feels good! Thank you, Lucinda
My husband has been having upper back and shoulder pain so bad that he can't sleep at night. He's tried all kinds of pain killers without any effect. Last night I put some DMSO on his back and his skin blistered up and his pain doubled. Can anyone tell me what we did wrong? I used a roll-on applicator that the DMSO came in and didn't put much on at all. I did, however, buy it at a feed store. Did I buy the wrong type?

I have had 5 degenerative discs in my lower back for about 5 years. The Drs say go home and live with it Surgery is to dangerious. I have been taking corizone injections every three months, but they only last a short while.
My brother-in -law told me about DMSO and he had some on hand. I tried it by putting some on a peace of gauze and appling it to my lower back. I then covered it with saran wrap. After 24 hours the pain was gone and i did this twice a day for 4 days. Since then i only use it when i feel my back starting to hurt. This pain was also causing my right testicle to swell and was very painful. Since using DMSO, I now have relief again and the testicle has gone back to normal.
By the way I'm 79 years old.
Thankful for DMSO and my brother-in -law for telling me about it.

I had a headache and nausea at work. A coworker (who used to work in a chiropractor's office) gave me a massage. He said I had a dowager's hump- probably due to my being hunched over while working on my computer. I can feel the hump and was wondering how if there was a natural remedy to get rid of it.
I am going to be taking vitamin D3 daily and add calcium and magnesium as well. I had been diagnosed with osteopenia a couple of years ago. But my doctor never really explained anything about it to me. I just had an annual exam and she just reviewed my lab results and that's it. I need to find a new doctor, but in the mean time I want to get rid of this hump at the base of my neck.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you, Barbara

I suffered an injury over 30 years ago which resulted in years of crushing pain in my lower back and hips and stiffness and pain throughout my entire body from misalignment. I have tried everything from yoga, Kriya yoga, pilates, chiropractic, osteopathy, massage, foam rollers, coconut oil, hyralauric acid....you name it. Some of these worked for a short while, but what never disappeared was the awkward feeling and stiffness from being misaligned. The only thing which finally worked was the Egoscue Method. The first day I felt a shift. The crushing pain vanished. Even much of stiffness was gone - the feeling of a body so misaligned it was fighting itself just to stand upright. I am only a few days in, but everything feels totally different. I cannot remember what it was like not to drag my body around kicking and screaming day after day, year after year. I am excited to rediscover freedom from pain and mobility again.
EC: The Egoscue Method, founded in 1978 by Pete Egoscue, focuses on a series of exercises and stretches to correct misalignments in the musculoskeletal system.
I have experienced bad back pain ever since junior year of high school where during a heavy lifting session I injured my back. After spending a lot of money on drugs and physical therapists, I can truly say nothing works better than just eliminating diary from my diet, sleeping on the floor, and doing several ab exercises. I have been doing these three things for the last two months and have noticed a significant reduction in my lower back pain. For those of you who complain they can enjoy the favorite breakfast foods without milk I suggest trying rice or soy milk or If you don't care like me just use water.
Had crazy making lower back pain from age 14(!) to 25 when finally my new therapist told me to go off dairy and give it a chance for only 3 weeks. I gave it a chance although my "diet" up to then was probably made out of up to 60% dairy products. after 3 weeks my back pain was COMPLETELY GONE! dairy sucks!!!

I have research google high and low as well as you tube for guidance on using Flowers of sulfur internally. My aunt, who has passed, used to make capsule of this yellow sulfur and take for back pain and kidney issues. She never had any problems with taking it internally and it helped her a lot.
I have read it is toxic in too high of dose, But I do know that it can be taken internally, because when my mother was a child they use to have cream of tarter sulfur wafers that people would take for mosquitoes and ticks. They do not make those anymore.
One guy, Ray Peat, said 200 mg per day for 3 days to wipe out Candida.
Maybe some of the older people here may know and can advise me.
Thank you for making this site available. I just had a visit with my doctor and won't be going back. I have been dealing with some back pain and wanted a referral to see my chiropractor. The doctor refused the referral b/c he didn't believe in it. However, he sure as hell was ok in prescribing me medication that had side effects.
I am determined to use alternative means to heal my pain and future illness.
Your site is extremely easy to use and I really appreciate the user feedback on the various remedies. I am going to share your site with my Facebook friends and family. You are an invaluable resource. Thank you again.
