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

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!!!

I need directions as to how much dmso I can take, I made the purchase and after reading the instructions of using rubber gloves to mix it, then I was to put it under my tongue, I am just confused as hell about what I am to do.

Also tried the peroxide spray, seem to be doing a great job , then I got the flu. Was this the result of using that spray.

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.

Be very careful with DMSO (Dimenthyl Sulfoxide). As a chemist, I've used DMSO and it is a great compound because it is an EXTREMELY effective solvent.

The reason that the FDA is against DMSO for home use is because it basically dissolves almost anything and takes it along for the ride. Since it is readily absorbed into the skin, anything dissolved in it is also absorbed. This can be dangerous if you inadvertantly come in contact with a hazardous chemical while using DMSO. Many things that are safe when placed on the skin aren't necessarily so when they are absorbed into the body.

DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic) and whatever area on the body it touches should be extremely clean. Be very conscious of not contaminating your bottle by dipping anything into it and make sure any container you use is also clean. As long as you're careful, you shouldn't have any problems.

Basically he made one major error here when he writes,

DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic) and whatever area on the body it touches should be extremely clean.

DMSO is sold by chemical suppliers generally in plastic containers (mine is from Fisher Scientific -picture of my DMSO is shown here) and it doesn't dissolve anything. Alcohol and acetone can dissolve certain things, namely plastic. But nothing dissolves organic compounds, such as skin, tissue, except through the process of digestion. And that is the job of Ebola, MRSA, your stomach acid to name a few. So it is technically doubtful that a REAL CHEMIST would say that DMSO should be stored in a glass container. DMSO doesn't go through the plastic containers sold by chemical suppliers.

DMSO is actually a byproduct of paper manufacturing processes, and the paper mill tried to get rid of it by pouring on to the coal tar roads. It was a disaster, as all the animals, such as deer, squirrels started licking up this miraculous substance. And it was later that a chemist name Dr. Stanley Jacobs was looking for a suitable compound to preserve heart from damage during transportation to protect them and found DMSO by chance. It's antioxidant ability had that capability from preventing damage, but it had wide uses in a chemical fields since it offers cells to receive oxygen where blood vessels can't reach. The woman who posted the cat was right on.

The DMSO can go through the cells receiving oxygen to cells that are dying helping it revived and this is why DMSO is ideal in emergency situations such as a stroke, or brain damage situation.

To make a long story short, I used DMSO mixed with water to reduce irritation, but MSM can do it too, although it won't have that recognition in emergency situation mentioned, since MSM doesn't go through the cells as easily as a DMSO.

Hi, Ted! Can you help me informing where to buy DMSO in Bangkok?

I plan to do the recomendations of Dr.David Gregg dissolving Vitamin B12 in DMSO:

"The absorption of vitamin B12 requires a highly specialized process which tends to become less effective with age...I realized that if I dissolved vitamin B12 in DMSO, it might carry it directly to my blood stream through my skin. I tried it and the results were dramatic for me, far greater than any impact I had ever felt from oral or sublingual tablets. I put some of my vitamin B12 tablets obtained at a health food store into a two liquid ounce bottle with an eyedropper and filled it with DMSO. It took a couple of days for the tablets to fall apart. Once they did, I put an eyedropper load on one arm and rubbed it in. In approximately one hour I started to feel very good, which was a sense of general strength and well being."

Thanks in advance!

Please be advised that DMSO is highly absorbed into the bloodstream and has a high risk of causing sterilization in humans. Although I highly recommended pain and swelling reliever one should use great caution when applying it to an animal by wearing gloves or know for a fact you are done having children before using it on yourself. I have used the product for many many years on horses and never apply it without gloves on.

DMSO causing infertility? I think that is quite the opposite of the truth: DMSO is used often to increase fertility in animals--most often cows/bulls, as far as I know. I'm sure using DMSO on your leg will be just fine. Also, DMSO is used very often in human in-vitro fertilization. After they fertilize eggs in the petri dish, and form zygotes, they are soaked in DMSO prior to cryo freezing. These frozen embryos make healthy babies at a really good rate after they are implanted.

The problem with one misstatement of fact is that it travels around the world in a split second. I recommend reading DMSO the persecuted drug, before making statements like DMSO causes sterility in humans. Either you have not done any research or somebody told you something and instead of checking it out and confirming or disproving, you just posted it. In law a perjured person is a person who has spoken a lie, whether or not intentional does not matter. Now, are you speaking that you personally have been sterilized and the blood tests have come back that DMSO did that to you? Well, please grace us with the report because if that is true then we must be careful to avoid this deadly substance. What ever your issue is, please research before spewing it. Thank you.

I have been doing a DMSO hair growth trial on myself using DMSO, allantoin and phosphytilserine. The DMSO is there mainly as a carrier but it helps as antioxidant. Our bodies natural response to inflammation is to oxidize the crap out of the injured area which isn't always necessary, especially in autoimmune disorders.

DMOS & HSV2 -- Wow, what a product. I had been getting outbreaks every two weeks for over 25 years. Some times I would have up to 17 in one month. They would come one right after another.

If you take Virgin Coconut oil, herpiees and cold sore out breaks will be a thing of the past. the DMSO is good but rather than trying to prevent one coming on...the VCO will stop it all together and drop all viral loads to extremely low levels. Also the "BUDWIG DIET" with Flax or HEMP oil also has similar results.

Wow I've heard of DMSO more than a year ago but never actually used it. Anyone who suffers from years of cold sores needs to know about the High L-Lysine and Low L-Arginine diet. It is this high ratio that keeps viruses dormant. Stress depeletes l-lysine and so does sugar, exercise and sex and ongoing insufficient sleep which also reduces other stress coping chemistry. Think how many times outbreaks occur in conjunction with these events in your life.

It hs basically come down to my finding only 3 really high L-lysine low L-arginine foods.
PLAIN WHITE YOGURT (goats cuz cows are too polluted)
Quinoa (also Gluten Free and complete protein)
Figs wow what a super food, eat freah and dried year round

Any time I still feeling a tingle I go for the yogurt and it stops and dies very quickly. I only found Quinoa 2 years ago and figs last year. I have wanted to give up dairy for years and can't because I need the L-lysine basically to survive without sores.

NOW I am actually gonna go across the street and pick up a bottle on my way to the kitchen and stop eating yogurt for as long as possible ;^)

Thanks, I'll let you know how it goes. Blue Monkey

Arginine and almonds will make my herpes break out. Arginine was promoted for adding strength and muscle size while working out, gets a big promo from the body building world and it works BUT IF YOU HAVE HERPES IT'S LIKE PUTTING GAS ON A FIRE. If you just have to have arginine, take Lysine. Lysine is good for putting a dampener on viruses like herpes etc.

Hi there I just have to say that I have battled cold sore for my entire life since I was a very small child. These are embarassing and very sore. I found out about DMSO and purchased some. I put it on my lip as soon as I feel that tingling feeling that comes prior to an outbreak. Since using this product the cold sore does not become visable. I am thankful and recommend others who suffer to give it a try.

I had a cold sore yesterday with a blister. It had started in the morning but I didn't notice it till I got to work. I decided to try dmso on it since I had some on my desk. (I ordered it a few weeks ago since I had read that you could use internally which I have yet to figure out what the protocal of that might be) I dabbed it on about 5 times throughout the day. I definetely felt that something was happening but the blister itself remained. About 7pm last night I accidently brushed the blister and it popped, without any pain. The blister was "dead". It is healing today. I HAVE NEVER EVER had a blister that was fully blistered heal so quickly. Once a blister has formed it usually means that you are in for the full program. ten days of a big patch of red gue by your lip and then scabbing and healing finally at the end.

I also use DMSO successfully for herpes. If an outbreak starts I put DMSO in the base of the spine and also on the sores themselves. Another great discovery I made recently is that my iron stores get low and this is why I am prone to getting outbreaks. The virus and my immune system compete for iron!

Warning

My good friend's boyfriend is a professor in sleep research at a university in California. When I was visiting them a few weeks ago, I asked if he used dmso in the lab and if so, how did he store it? He told me that they use dmso in many, many experiments and that they always store it in glass bottles. When I told him that I had recently put some of my dmso in a small, cosmetic plastic spray bottle to use with grapefruit seed extract for nail fungus, he looked concerned and suggested that I only store dmso in glass.

Ah, good thing I had that discussion. When I got home from the trip, I smelled the little plastic spray bottle that I had been using the previous 2 weeks. It reaked of chemicals! Yikes!! I compared the smell to the dmso in the thick white plastic bottle that I bought from an online vet supply store, which looks just like the one in Ted's photo. Thankfully the big bottle had a typical dmso odor - a faint scent of garlic. Needless to say, I immediately threw out my spray bottle. Until I find a glass beaker or bottle from a science supply store, I am using a glass dropper for the dmso.

Be warned, be warned!

Hi Everyone

It is best to store DMSO in glass bottles because as a extremely good solved it can leach it or even dissolve some of the ingredients in the plastic. Having said that there are some plastics which can be used to store DMSO (some manufacturers use a plastic bottle not sure what plastic is used in these). More research needs to be done on the effects of DMSO on various disease processes the potentials are fantastic. I have used 1 to 2 teaspoons taken internally with great success the only side effect is a garlic type odour.

kind regards

There are different kinds of plastic, and I certainly wouldn't pour dmso into an el cheapo plastic bottle that wasn't at least food grade, but everyone should be aware that dmso is shipped from manufacturers in plastic bottles. I'm guessing they are high density plastic. I transfer mine to PET bottles, but obviously glass is good. Avoid metal caps.

There are people selling dmso online who charge more and make a big deal out of their glass bottles, without mentioning their dmso originally came in plastic. Rather misleading. They also claim it is a superior grade - but anyone can buy 99.9% purity at any livestock/feed store. It's the same stuff.

Also - I would hesitate to use a dmso product that was premixed with some other ingredient. You really don't need aloe or honey pulled through every cell in your body. Honey for one can be contaminated with pathogens - that's why we don't give it to newborns. Binding dmso to a potentially contaminated product and sending it past the blood brain barrier is just silly. If you are using dmso as a carrier agent for another ingredient, much better YOU control that ingredient and its purity.

All manufacturers use PP, Poly-propylene, #2 in recycling triangle, or HDPE, high-density polyethylene, #1 in recycling triangle, to ship DMSO.

I tried to measure off a little DMSO using kitchen type measuring spoon, and in a few seconds it took the shine off of the spoon. It also melts rubber, esp. Nitrile, which is popularly called "synthetic". Glass is probably best, but hard to find DMSO in glass, and it's expensive. People have used industrial grade DMSO, which is not clean at all, and they live. Except one ingredient which may be in it, which is deadly in larger amounts, or if used for a long time - acetone. I don't know if it can be smelled (smells like nail polish) in small percentege, but I wouldn't risk it. But I am not half-worried about plastic, if it's the right kind. I have a large syringe to measure bigger quantity, I put DMSO on it, and it rooled right off, as if the plastic is greasy, so it's unlikely to do anything.

Now I am drinking it, 2 teaspoons a day, you need grapefruit juice or tomato juice, it tastes awful, but it's harmless. I recommend a book "DMSO: Nature's healer" by Dr. Morton Walker, it explains everything about it. Clinics use it IV - Intra Veinus, orally, injections etc. , in combination, it's completely safe. But he warns to get familiar with possible side effects, they are not harmful but may be scary (for nothing, they go away)

Leaded crystal is very dangerous. If you put alcohol in it, lead will leach into the liquid. Therefore, I imagine the same would be true of DMSO. I put nothing in leaded crystal containers. It's not worth taking the chance of consuming lead.

Dear Stephen,

I have some DMSO gel. I mixed it with colloidal silver and put it into a glass bottle that had a glass eyedropper to it. This made it easy to get it out by the drop as needed. It helps to avoid the plastic issue. (Though my DMSO did come in a plastic container! )

I could have mixed it with distilled water, but was wanting to use it to deliver colloidal silver deeper into the body. The gel would have to be mixed with something I think, to be able to get it thin enough to come out of the eye dropper.

Bill, Very good post about Vitamin C not being ascorbic acid. I take a Vitamin C with Rose Hips. I look at the rose hips as being the most important part. I have tended to take Vitamin C for granted without thinking about it. It is a reminder to be more discriminating when buying Vitamin C in supplement form. I know you get your nutrients from whole foods so less likely to be a problem. For people who buy supplement, this is important to know

http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/vitaminc/ascorbic-acid-is-not-vitamin-c/

"OK, natural vs. synthetic. Let's start with Vitamin C. Most sources equate vitamin C with ascorbic acid, as though they were the same thing. They're not. Ascorbic acid is an isolate, a fraction, a distillate of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components as shown in the figure below:

A s c o r b I c A c I d

ascorbinogen
bioflavonoids
rutin

tyrosinase

Factor J
Factor K
Factor P

A s c o r b I c A c id

V I T A M I N C

In addition, mineral co-factors must be available in proper amounts.

If any of these parts are missing, there is no vitamin C, no vitamin activity. When some of them are present, the body will draw on its own stores to make up the differences, so that the whole vitamin may be present. Only then will vitamin activity take place, provided that all other conditions and co-factors are present."

To drive home the point even further

"Ascorbic acid simply cannot confer vitamin activity, as taught by the discoverer of vitamin C himself, another Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Albert Szent-Georgi.

Szent-Georgi discovered vitamin C in 1937. In all his research however, Szent-Georgi found that he could never cure scurvy with the isolated ascorbic acid itself. Realizing that he could always cure scurvy with the "impure" vitamin C found in simple foods"

So one should focus on Vitamin C COMPLEX as opposed to Vitamin C

I found a sustained release brand which contains

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 1000 mg 1,667%

Bioflavonoids (from Citrus limon exocarp) (supplying active flavonones, 24% [120 mg] and active flavonols and flavones, 20% [100 mg]) 500 mg

Rutin (from Sophora japonica leaf) 100 mg

Hesperidin (from Citrus limon exocarp) 100 mg

Rose Hips (Rosa canina fruit) 100 mg

Acerola (Malpighia glabra fruit) 50 mg

Hello, my mother had already had surgery in both knees. And was in constant pain. I had pain in my shoulder and got DMSO for it. One day my mother came and I decided to applied DMSO for her knee pain. She was thrilled and amazed that the pain was gone the next day. I did put it in my armpit elbow area with not too much success yet. I still feel something, not pain but something and it goes and comes. I can not tell you DMSO worked for me. But I have applied it two times, still too soon to tell.

My mother cure was more impressive. Oh, well , I am not telling you more about DMSO because you have to google it and educate yourself very well before any attempt to use it. It is great but delicate. Not for incompetent adults. Please educate yourself if you think it may help you.

Regarding "Industrial" DMSO vs "Medical grade." Several years ago I was interested in DMSO and did quite a bit of research on this stuff. It is truly a wonder product, but I was concerned about the 'purity' thing. So I contacted the company that makes DMSO and asked them about it. This is what they told me. Dmso is Dmso, period. There is no 'medical grade' or 'industrial' grade. It is all the same. DMSO is Dimethyl sulfoxide period. The only difference is how much distilled water is mixed with it. If it is 70% DMSO that just means it has been mixed with 30% distilled water. If it is 99% pure, it means it was mixed with 1% distilled water. If it says 99.9% pure, it has no measurable distilled water mixed with it. PERIOD> So when you read on the internet that 'their' product is "more pure" than anyone elses, you're being "taken". I've seen ads stating that "Our product is only 'Medical grade'" to justify charging as much as 38.00 per bottle!! ? This is ridiculous! I buy my bottle of DMSO at our FEED and SEED store for 7.50!! It is 99% pure and I have been using for years! So don't be taken to the cleaners over this stuff. Do your own research.!!!

In response to Anne's post, grade is not in reference to the amount of water in dmso, it's in reference to purity, meaning that dmso that is of pharmaceutical grade is 99.99% pure - the chances of it containing any solvents or other additives is minute. This is the grade used in cryogenic preservation (shipment of organs for transplant), and in transdermal patches. The risk of any other grade is unknown, unless you have access to a testing facility that can tell you what the other percentage is, I.e., the 1% or more which is not dmso. That 1% can make all the difference when it comes to treating the human body, so misinformation can be damaging. I use only 99.99% pure dmso iin my topical pain formula, just as I use only the highest grade essential oils and extracts, organic, extra-virgin coconut & olive oils, and organic grapeseed and hemp oils.

Anne,

You can get the pure DMSO on line from "Dr Jacobs DMSO" and can see a great 3 part video on DMSO by googling "dr Jacobs DMSO 60 minutes youtube"...

HI U KAREN, , , , , , , , , , Seems to me that you might be getting caught up in stuff that is much to do about nothing. I buy my DMSO from Dr Jacobs and he is Mr. DMSO and states that DMSO in a poly bottle is good, but if you got a hang up, then he will ship it in a glass container for $ 5 more. He did all the original research on DMSO for Crown Zellerbach back in the 60's . What are your credentials?

What you have to watch is that most compounds distill off at a certain purity and if you want it higher then it is done by it is done by removing the water by decanting with a solvent. When I was a poor whipper snapper at Ga Tech and in Organic Chemistry, instead of stealing ethanol at 95% , I stole the the Absolute ethanol at 100%, because that had to be better. The more I stole for our Frat parties, the worse I felt.

The next summer I had a grad student teaching the class. He covered Absolute 100% ethanol, which was made by decanting the water from the 95% by using benzene and this left traces of benzene in the Absolute. Benzene is accumulative in your body and when you reach 10 grams , then you die. After that lecture , I went to him after class and explained what a friend of mine had done by stealing from the Organic Lab.

He had been down a few dusty road and told me very emphatically not to ever do that again. Since I's SJS , I never did, but I have always wondered how many grams of benzene I do have.

The lady who buys her 99% DMSO from the Farm Co-op will get no flack from me and I question your problem with it.

I have a question perhaps someone can direct me to the source of information on this. I just bought DMSO distributed by "FWI, Tulsa, OK" and it says 99 % purity. The representative of the company said it is actually 99.9% purity and that they are using the old bottle because they have them and will use them up and then switch to the new labels.

Is anyone familiar with this distributor (FWI, Tulsa, OK) and do they have a reputation in the community for honesty.

My reason, logic and common sense says that 99.9 % purity is probably fine for purity. Does anyone have any reason to say that this brand/label is anything other than what it claims?

DMSO and H2O2 for Migraines:

My boyfriend gets constant and debillatating migraine headaches for the past several years (about once or twice a week)... it is what first brought me to Earthclinic many months ago when I started researching. He has ever since been by guniea pig!! I think that there's a lot of it to do with nutritional defficiencies (which I am still figuring out...) but I FINALLY came up with something that works QUICK in the meantime until I figure out the root cause this treats the symptoms.

I was reading about DMSO and how it could theoretically be used to treat a stroke in an emergency, and I was thinking that headaches have similar problems of lack of oxygen to the brain... so when he came over this morning w terrible headache that had lasted all night and not been relieved by Amerge or Flova prescription migraine pills... I mixed him a cocktail of organic "Monster C" juice, about 1 cup (8 oz.) with a tiny bit (about 1/8 t. DMSO and added a few drops of food grade 35% hudrogen peroxide. We applied an icepack to his forehead and within 20 minutes the headache that had lasted for about 8 hours went away completely! So happy! Hopes this remedy helps someone else.

Can anyone simply give a good place to purchase DMSO. Online stores or stores? Please provide names of places or email address of where to get it. Everyone keeps talking about it but no one really is saying where they purchased their dmso.

I get my DMSO at Tractor Supply. You should be able to get it at any large Feed and Seed or maybe pet supply. Its about 8.00 bucks for 16 oz bottle. If you got a besty who works for a veterinarian or who is a vet, get them to order it for you through their business.

Hello Heal and Glory,

Google "Dr. Jacobs DMSO" and his product line comes up. It is Dr. Jacobs who put DMSO on the map 20 years or so ago with his interviews with 60 Minutes. You can also Google that..."Dr. Jacobs 60 Minutes DMSO" and see the series.

And Health food stores carry it.

HU Db, , , , , , , , , , , , , , sorry to learn of your father's passing. I got to know of Dr. Jacob in the mid 60's when I worked for Crown Zellerbach in La., which made DMSO at their Bogalusa paper mill.

I have both his DMSO and MSM books and researched the trials and tribulations the medical establishment put him through because of his use of natural compounds to heal people.

He was a great man and made a forever lasting contribution to the world.

HI ALL, , , , , , , guess most have seen the post that Dr Jacob has passed and his lab is closing. That has been posted but what you don't know is that they still have a number things that have not sold out .

I have been using them for some 20 years because Dr. Jacob did all the research in the 60's on DMSO and MSM. His products are top quality, a far cut above the standard. Also to get this quality later, you will pay far more .

I just completed my order which may get me out at my age. Got no horse in this race except to inform my EC friends.

DMSO and MRSA: Since anything combined with DMSO topically facilitates absorbtion, Would this push the skin affliction into the blood ? If MRSA goes into the blood it's more dangerous to the person.

I'm new to DMSO. A doctor gave it to my husband to use after his back surgery b/c he had terrible swelling in his legs and feet. His feet looked like pregnant lady feet. I applied the DMSO around the suture and within an hour his legs were no longer swollen (they were swollen for 5 days after surgery). I applied the DMSO around his suture again that night before he went to bed. The next morning his feet looked normal. I'm now trying it on a MRSA scar.

If I have any luck with it reducing the scar I will post my results. Do know, MRSA toxins are nasty but if you can find a doc to give you a vitamin C IV get one. It will mop those toxins up and make you feel a ton better. I had undiagnosed MRSA for 3 years in my nose. I could smell a burning matches type smell all the time. One doctor actually told me I was hallucinating. I ended up septic, after about 6 months sepsis I found an integrative medicine doctor and he gave me the vitamin C. It made me feel so much better immediately. It pushed the toxins out through my skin. I had cystic like knots all over my head the day after the infusion and they disappeared later that day. After that I got 4 more infusions weekly and I was soon healed. The MRSA popped up 2.5 yrs later and I finally had a smart enough doctor to swab the wound in my nose, we found out it was MRSA, I was finally put on a MRSA appropriate anti-biotic and I combined it this time with 40k mg of IV vitamin C, this finally knocked it out. For the first time in my life I don't smell burning matches. Vitamin C in conjunction with the right antibiotic works miracles. Don't take fluroquinolones as the antibiotic it will make it worse, I used rifampin. I also took likes of niacin. I suffered through the flush but the niacin is to get blood super close to the wound to help heal it faster.

JEDI, you bring up a good topic with flushing Niacin as it dilates your capillaries which allows blood to get to places it normally can't go. Also it allows your body's toxins to pass out. It is a must with any Detox program. The problem is that most Md's have no clue and most folks start with a 500 mg capsule, which is normally far too much and thus, the flush is way too strong and unbearable.

Some 10 years ago, I was fortunate enough to subscribe to a Naturopath who started me off on 100 mg capsules and you found your level that would give you a mild, but tolerable flush. I think mine was 300mg. This lack of knowledge turns people off flushing Niacin and that is a shame.

Did you consider Colloidal Silver for your MRSA?

Hi John Henry...I'm with you 100% with what you say about niacin. This is why higher dose niacin should be in so many protocols where there are problems with the extremities of the body -- like the head, hands, feet and other areas that sre difficult to reach. Niacin safely opens up the arteries, veins and capillaries for more efficient delivery of nutrients to these regions. Niacin(not niacinamide) changes the blood -- it thins or unclumps thick blood safely. Other side-effects of niacin supplementation at higher orthomolecular dose are that it seems to be highly beneficial for problems such as CFS, Depression, Diabetes, Dementia, Arthritis, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Heart Disease, high blood pressure and alcoholism.

But you won't achieve any of the above beneficial effects with the lower RDA dosage of 15 to 20 mgs for niacin.

I also much prefer the niacin form and take it regularly. If your niacin flush is unbearable then just take ordinary aspirin 20 mins before supplementing the higher dose niacin. This greatly reduces the flush. Niacin is also much cheaper than either niacinamide or inositol hexanicotinate (slow release niacin).

Niacin Therapy Details -- Hoffer

Regarding DMSO, I came across an interesting article the other day. I think that most people are aware of the transdermal benefits of DMSO and its ability to carry nutrients through the skin and into the blood. Well here's something that might help people with excessive plaque on their teeth or gum disease.

Hulda Clark suggests taking DMSO as a mouthwash. Use 50% DMSO, one teaspoon twice a day as a mouthwash. What could be simpler?

It's also well known that DMSO is an anti-microbial that also can kill mycoplasma(which is why it works so well against arthritis). DMSO also has rather remarkable anti-inflammatory and pan-killing properties. Furthermore DMSO also dissolves biofilms or plaque.

The DMSO acts more deeply than just ordinary anit-microbials because it actually penetrates the gum line to help disinfect and remove pathogens from the all-important root canals. I am thinking of using DMSO and lugol's iodine in combination as a mouthwash. The use of lugol's with DMSO should greatly help in removing both pathogens and biofilms or plaque from the teeth and jaw areas.

“DMSO, 25% in water. Take one tsp. as a mouthwash, twice daily. Swish slowly over gums. Hold several minutes. Swallow for maximum effectiveness. This “pushes” your supplements into your tissues. It also helps to draw toxins out of cavitations. You may add wintergreen drops to the mouthwash. 50% DMSO is preferred, if available. Must be edible quality.”

I am very interested in this Niacin issue. I find that a 250 mg dose of Niacin will keep me warm in very cold weather. so If I am going to go out int 5 degree Fahrenheit weather, then a dose of Niacin will work. I know this works. So now the question arises whether dissolving the Niacin in the DMSO would work even better? I am off to the lab to check this out. If I don't come back, please don't send flowers.

To Robert Henry: Yes I tried colloidal silver. The MRSA was between the layers of my skin. The silver didn't help. I'm still using the DMSO and I think it is helping but not enough. I really need to be more consistent with it. I think Niacin works wonders for so many things. I think it has helped my blood pressure too. It use to be 120 over 80 in my 20s and teens. I'm now in my 30s and my blood pressure is 90 over 60 consistently which is much better. I also are much more cool headed but I think that might also be because of the magnesium I take when I'm stressed although I have read where niacin helps with mood disorders.

I have braces until March of next year-- I need to wait to use DMSO as a mouth wash, probably, right?

I thought I had a gout outbreak early this fall, as I awoke in the coldest part of the night thinking What did I hit with my toe and then suspected a poisonous spider bite and I had a huge hard cyst looking bump on my big toe that had a fierce pain-- I drank burdock tea all day and cut down the sugar and cut out the eggplant, but then last week, a very similar incident with my pinky finger joint, which leads me to believe I have those nano-calcium encased buggers trying to take up residency in my joints-- so I want to take the dmso and msm and other preventative measures to ensure my wellbeing and enhance comfort and longevity.

They glued my brackets to my teeth with an epoxy, I think. I suppose I don't really want to give dissolved epoxy a free hall pass into my cerebrum, but does that mean I also can't take it orally until my braces are finished?

And if I am taking it orally, a few drops to a tablespoon in clean water and msm and did someone say I need to add salt? I have the signs of calcium build up in extremity joints, skin on the back of my upper arms, mild hair loss, brittle nails, and plaque and I'm so very excited that all my symptoms have the same cause.

I really need to be cautious though, because I don't trust the city water-- How long after I apply dmso topically do I need to wait before bathing in tap water? or swimming in chlorinated pool?

I was reading up on DMSO and saw your comments about gout, I have had terrible gout in the past. I was so desperate at one point I looked up home remedies and found that taking 1/2 a tsp. baking soda in a large glass of water 3 times a day works for me [every time] over nite, for at least the ten years. It seems not to work for everybody but I always keep some on hand. Good luck, Ricky

I have been quite excited about this DMSO product. I just bought a quart that is 99.996 purity. I have used DMSO externally for stubbed toes, joint pain, back pain, Herpes cold sore preventative.

I have used DMSO internally in water *distilled water* I take a cap full in a 16 ounce glass of water. once a day. Sometimes I will do that twice but on the second day in a row of doing that ( 4 cap fulls in two days--the Dr. jacobs bottle lid 8 ounce bottle lid) I have trouble sleeping the second night because I am up peeing very frequently.

the Frequent urination is not much different than the affect from excessive blood sugar.

I just learned that ringworm on the skin is also a symptom of poor blood sugar control.

I suffer from a diabetes symptoms and am looking to solve the problem with foods and other natural solutions. I think it is type II diabetes because I have frequent urination, often have excessive dry mouth, low energy after meals, tingling feet and fingers ( mostly feet and the little toes it is most noticeable),

I was wondering if that DMSO might have some positive affects on the Diabetes issue. I am a bit of a risk taker so I am trying it. I would rather not get shot up with Doctor prescribed pills, (pharakia-- witchcraft, in Greek).

Man: Fatty acid oxidation creates a state called fermentation. Fundamentally this interferes with glucose metabolism causing diabetes. Andrew Kim explains this technically in his 3 blogs, insulin revisited, carbon dioxide, and why cells go bad. The 80/10/10 program immediately reverses this creating a favorable state called respiration. You can also add in some raw grass fed animal products.

Mike 62 Thank you for your feedback on this. I will look into this thing you have said. I have never heard of such a thing but am willing to look into it. I believe that much of what is passed off as knowledge in the "medical Industrial complex" aka Doctors is more for their benefit than mine. A follow up on symptoms: For about a week I kept very close tabs on what I ate and when I ate and how I felt as far as energy and then I kept tabs on how I slept between urinations. The recent experience I have had with this issue I have kept notes to prevent the experience again and here are some of my findings from my own experience: From the 12/9/2013 to 12/22/2013 I kept notes of every thing I ate and drank and each time. My symptoms disappeared when I ate properly. When I ate only foods low on the glycemic scale and really rationed the molasses and sweets. I also added 2 TBS of Apple cider vinegar in water before each meal. Here is what worked: Not every thing I ate is listed. (But one thing that I noticed negative affects almost every time: alcohol had a negative affect on my energy level, a few hours later when it would hit me). Chia seed in water: One scoop in (16) sixteen ounces of distilled water-- I sipped once in the morning during this period of time. I had a glass of DMSO flavored water also to sip on which was 1 cap full in sixteen ounces of water And I also made a crock pot full of water and green tea bag with rosemary leaves and some fennel seeds to soak and I would dip out of that and drink that tea blend. ( It served as a humidifier also durning this very dry winter). I would add water to it as necessary. Trail mix with extra cocktail peanuts to reduce the amount of sweets percentage. Raw cabbage to munch on also ( It is cheep and low glycemic so can be eaten often. Avocado once in a while ( as they are quite expensive) I found that eggs are very helpful in the general sense of well being. I ate them scrambled, and boiled with coconut oil and turmeric also once in a while. I consumed about seven or eight dozen eggs in that time. To the eggs I added raw garlic chopped and raw onion chopped. Home made sauerkraut also was a regular in my diet during that time Celery sticks, Extra Virgin Olive Oil with turmeric in the oil, Hand fulls of just plain cocktail peanuts ( with no MSG). Eating late is not helpful. So I kept the meals small and tried to make sure I ate a few hours before bed time. I hope this information helps somebody. I will, if God wills, keep keeping track of diet along with the general sense of well being after the meals. Thank you for the website and the information here at Earth Clinic I appreciate the opportunity to learn to take care of my own health. Thank you.
