I used DMSO for third degree burns and it healed after one week without scars, Even hairs were preserved without keloids.
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.
Medical Grade vs Industrial DMSO
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.

COMMENTS ON USING DMSO. I HAD PLANTAR fasciitis for several months in 2007 before using DMSO. I put it on topically on clean skin on my foot bottom twice a day. In 3-4 days it was gone. If I felt that tightness return I did another treatment. I have had no problems for several yrs now and I go barefoot too. It is a shame we waste money on special shoes and Doctors.
Hi Mystic Sage, I first used DMSO back in the 70's as a ballet dancer. My teacher/ mentor who was one of the great American ballerinas had used it throughout her career and familiarized me with it. Back then it was not used by humans (at least not the general public, dancers were using it. ) but she knew of it from the horse world in Saratoga Springs, NY of which they had been using it on race horses for a long time successfully. I continue to use it today in roll- on form. Once applied you do not need to rub it in but do let it dry before getting dressed. It is a powerful conductor so be careful what you are applying with it because it will drive it into the body.
As for MSM, I was introduced to it 16 years ago by my dad. He would always see me in pain from all my teaching and brought it to me in powder form although he had capsules as well. I was skeptical but tried it and my pain disappeared overnight! I was sold! Back then, my dad would add the powder to lotion to use topically since it was not available in creams at that time. Virtually no one knew of it and because I became such a believer in it, I would drive a distance to buy it from the distributor in boxes so I could get a bulk discount. I would give it to dancers and friends who had physical pain. To this day, I recommend it to all my students if they become really sore or if they feel they've injured a body part. I like to use it in powder form best since it goes directly into your system. Capsules are good for convenience but I personally don't think they're as potent. I use Omica which is completely plant- derived and non- petroleum derived. That company offers superior products of all that they carry. The first MSM I used all that time ago was OptiMSM. I always had great results with that as well.
As for DMSO orally, well since I use MSM orally I don't use DMSO that way. You can safely use them together. I have often. Also, there is plenty of information available on the internet on both of these so you really don't need to buy a book. As for the amount of MSM, I base it on my pain factor. Of course, I think it's always best to start low and build up if you aren't getting the results you wanted. I use a pretty healthy tablespoon, sometimes more, in a glass of water but then again, I'm used to these things...
I hope I have answered your questions. Best to you, Lisa

In spite of what the FDA says, ascorbic Acid is NOT vitamin C, it is merely a component of vitamin C.
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
"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
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
DMSO + Lugol's Iodine
In reply to:
Posted by Jane (Hoddles Creek, Vic Australia) on 01/20/2010: Lugol's Iodine and DMSO - a couple of sprays on the skin once only I almost fainted 3 times that day at work and did not repeat the trial, as a nurse in home visits I didn't feel it was appropriate to faint on the job!
Yes, DMSO and Lugol's will do this but when applying this add sea salt internally and selenium and this will offset this.
Remember, the Dmso is carrying the Potassium in the system so it will lower blood pressure so you will need salt to balance it out and the selenium to regulate the iodine--I use this with an SKI/lugols I make with a 5% DMSO solution and noticed the same thing. You sleep deeply and rest like a baby but it can have a drowsy effect when not having salt.
I burned my finger one day at home. I quickly grabbed the DMSO washed my finger, poured it over the finger. The pain and swelling stopped immediately. No subsequent problems. While winter hiking in the Sierras a girl in our group burned her hand on a hot stove. I applied the DMSO from my backpack. She came to me the next morning to say she had no distress at all from the burn.
I also used it on my mother's face when she fell on the cement smashing her glasses and nose. It moved the blood right out. The next day she had yellowing of the skin. Great stuff. I carry it everywhere.
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!
Peripheral Neuropathy, Shingles and Arthritis
You're really not an old fart, I am at 80, you're a young fart at 75. I thought hydrogen peroxide is dangerous to drink?
you use DMSO 1 Tsp dmso (99.9%) with Is it ACV apple cider vinegar or regular vinegar? You drink it on an empty stomach?
I drink 2Tbsp of ACV in a glass of water with 1/2 lemon juice and 1/2 Tsp of organic, raw honey every morning on an Empty stomach, I can eat 2-3 minutes later and lost 55 lbs. I will add DMSO 1tsp to fight my severe arthritis in back and neck. You also used DMSO gel that has Aloe Vera? I never heard of that, do you use it for neuropathy pain? I also have that in my feet and enlarged prostate and UTI urinary tract infection, maybe someone has a new recipe I can try. Thank you all. Germany 1961-1964 Army
Deep Vein Thrombosis
DMSO thins the blood, naturally. Way better than warfarin or coumadin. There are books on it by Naturopathic doctors and such, attesting to its healing qualities. Here is my experience:
Had a hard fall mostly on my shin, it hurt but I got up by myself and walked away as I had errands to do. Got home 2 hrs later, noticed my leg didn't hurt anymore and was surprised to see it had swollen to 1.5x its size! I did icepacks, elevation & acv/epsom salt soaks. I also applied DMSO 4x a day.
About a week later I was on a flight sitting beside a doctor, still swollen. He thought it could be DVT related and told me to see a Dr. Not wanting to take warfarin or coumadin, I stepped up the DMSO (rubbed on leg only) to every 2 hrs, and arranged to drink 3 or 4 750ml bottles of water one afternoon/night, and the next day my leg was back to almost-normal.
I have a good lymph system, I've been told. I wanted to open the dam sluices and get that excess water out! I peed alot that night. Only I could tell there was still a little swelling left at the ankle, which was gone soon after. I boarded my next flight the next day with no problem with my leg.
I haven't seen DMSO mentioned as a blood thinner, so I wanted to mention it is worth asking a Naturopath about and looking into on your own.
Best of Healing, everyone.
DMSO Application Tips
Regarding diluting dmso for topical application, usually 50% dilution is good but everyone is different so just experiment.
To take dmso by mouth you can either put it in large cellulose capsules 1mL at a time and swallow them before they melt (in a minute), or you can just dilute it in enough water. 1mL in a liter of water is hard to taste. But you might want to use more, so in that case capsules and topical.
To avoid smelling bad, take extra magnesium and drink ( raw goat preferably) milk. Lots more info from the yummy.doctor website or in the book DMSO:Nature's Healer.
I used DMSO on a skin cancer spot, and I added a lot of vitamin C, and it cured the spot. Vitamin C kills viruses, and the DMSO helped it to absorb since it is an industrial solvent. It goes to the bottom, and a little more. Antiviral herbs and DMSO would work, too, maybe.
DMSO Application Tips
I do not subscribe to the dilute above the waist and not below stuff. I use DMSO on my knees regularly and always put on a thin layer of castor oil first. This helps with protecting my skin AND from half the DMSO being soaked up by the skin in my hand on the way to my knees! DMSO is a solvent and it wants IN! The one time I forgot the castor oil and used the stuff straight, and the skin on my kneecaps was red and scaly. I threw every healing oil I have at it, and the stuff that worked overnight was av-ee-no lotion. Please so not use DMSO straight unless you're diluting, and that just seems its more trouble than it's worth.
Tip: do take a moment and rinse the stuff off your hands after or they'll look pickled later for a little while. I don't like this sensation so I always wash it off.
Best of healing to you!
DMSO Application Tips
Try going to stewpeters.tv Lots of good stuff there for survival.
I am 79yrs old, been around for awhile and I found this site not long ago and I have read many comments, am using some of there natural things that have been posted, perhaps people will try things that I have posted. Now the real reason I am replying to this posting is your DMSO comment and you feeling that EC should debate you, well that is not the business they are in, AFTERALL who are you? You should be so glad that the Staff here posted your comment, I never would have. I used DMSO over 55 yrs ago, big deal. Be thankful your comment was accepted, hoping you go after Big PHARMA now. I love this site!
Where to Buy DMSO Locally
Just saw DMSO at the Farm & Feed store in Texas. It was 1/3 of the price that I had paid. Just FYI, same brand I bought at a Health Supplement Store.
Dmso works great when paired with coconut oil which is a natural antibiotic
I have successfully used DMSO for two severe skin growths--one was more than 7 years old--ugly right under my right eye. Gone is just 3 days--but about 50 consecutive treatments in that short time-that also included pricking the sore to initiate bleeding and then alternating hydrogen peroxide with DMSO and then alternating iodine with DMSO.
The sore was really ugly and growing daily. It was ugly on the exterior and went deep beyond the surface of the skin.
DMSO Application Tips
If you thoroughly clean the area, where you want to apply DMSO, with witch hazel, it will alleviate any itch or burn. The itch and/ or burn you are experiencing is caused by the DMSO reacting with something that is on your skin.
Where to Buy DMSO Locally
I found my 99.9% pure DMSO in the animal treatment area of the local farm supply store. Ignore the part on the label that says that it is not for human consumption. That is to keep you-know-who happy. It is very reasonable in price there, also.
Alicia, I am on thyroid scripts also. I felt anxious first taking the DMSO but at the tine I had a dose of CBD oil in my system also. DMSO of what I have read states that you must be careful because the DMSO will increase the efficacy of the other meds that you are on. I cut my thryoid meds down to half the dose and so far everything is fine, in that respect. Think about that with your BP meds, if that may be better for you while on DMSO. Otherwise, it is like you are increasing your BP meds which may be harmful. Chest tightening is a concern that should not be taken lightly. I had that happen once when taking Imitrex a few years back and the dr took me off that med. I was not on DMSO back then so it had nothing to do with that. Good health to you!
DMSO and Aloe Vera
I have recently bought Aloe Vera juice and put it with DMSO.
I really haven't noticed that it helps do much of anything but it hasn't hurt anything either. Even if it is just an inert substance, it still can play a role in my tinctures.
Aloe vera juice is a way to cut the DMSO to a lesser strength and for all I know, it may help something. So I am using Aloe Vera Juice in my blends now for topical application.
It may help soothe the skin but I don't see that it stops the irritation when used with DMSO cut with it.
My experiments with DMSO and Aloe Vera juice have been Straight DMSO with 30% Aloe; 40% and 50 % blends and I don't find any reduction in irritation.
When I add this to the Cayenne extract and make a blend of that. I find no irritation at all but I get the side effect of warmth where the blend is applied and it feels quite good. So a bottle filled with 50% Cayenne extract and 25 % DMSO and 25% Aloe Vera juice and a tiny spot of glycerin has a really good effect, mild.
I heated it up today by applying straight cayenne extract on top of the blend and it draws moisture and really heats up nicely on the skin. In summary, I can't tell what Aloe Vera does but I like what I read about it and it is a God-made plant it is a leaf. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations from Revelation chapter twenty two.
I have been making cayenne extracts to roll on areas of pain. Especially for knee or back pain issues. This cayenne extract ( in alcohol 100 proof) has been really amazing in pain relief topical application. Just today I took some DMSO and Aloe Vera juice and a spot of Kosher Glycerin and filled the rest of the ounce with cayenne extract in alcohol. I made this blend this morning and have just applied it and the heating sensation is perfect. I have been experimenting with DMSO and Aloe Vera juice too by adding 30%, or 40% or 50% of Aloe Vera Juice with coresponding amounts of pure DMSO. They all cause me to itch so far. I want to try some honey in this DMSO to see if I can make a home made blend that does not itch. Well, Until later.
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.
How to Store DMSO
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.
How to Store DMSO
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.

DMSO Side Effects
Basically Aja made one major error here when he writes, "DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic)...."
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.
When using dmso, which is better, gel or liquid for hsv2? Thanks
I pulled a muscle in the upper middle back and could not turn my head full left or right. I rubbed in DMSO, & soon after, the pain was gone. It lasted the whole day, but I did have to reapply at night & then the next day. After about 4 days , the pain was completely gone! This is an amazing site--my new bible---thank you for everything!

I feel honoured to read your post. Thank you.x
ORH - just to be clear, as an explorer, I enjoy dialogue but I don't do "debate" which is why I failed to read past the first lines of either of your remarks.

Hi there, I have an irregular heartbeat and arthritis in the finger joint...
How would I take to DMSO to help these issues...orally? and what quantity. Do I mix it with something? I'm new to this product so any advise would help. Many Thanks.
There have been some reports of Albendazole and Mebendazole, over the counter human and animal anti-worming medications with a long history of use and generally considered safe being involved in complete remissions of lung cancer. Two cases in point include a man called Joe Tippens, who writes a blog about his experience at
https://www.mycancerstory.rocks//single-post/my-story-part-1-start-here and a case being treated by Care Oncology in the U.K. with Mebendazole.
Joe Tippens brought this medication to light when on the suggestion of his veterinarian started taking it to address his stage 4 terminal lung cancer with positive results. There are rumours online that he has passed but as far as I can tell he is still alive and active as he has recently added a new video on his blog at my cancer story rocks.
There is also information on Pubmed regarding these medications including discussions about safety and dosages including a clinical trial with Mebendazole with a range of glioma types that has been ongoing for almost 10 years, and now due to be completed in 2022 - 2023.
I hope this information reaches you in a timely way and assists you with what you are looking for,
Kind regards. :)
DMSO Application Tips
DMSO is a solvent and plastic is known to leach. Although quite convenient, possibly not the safest method for application because the nature of a spray bottle is that it holds the fluid in the plastic pump even when not in use. That means the solvent is in contact with the plastic 24/7 and there is no practical way to determine if the plastic has leached into the solvent. Is it worth the risk, since DMSO is well noted for carrying things through the skin barrier?
DMSO Side Effects
HI U GRI,,,,,,,,,,, it is a fact that your breath will smell like garlic when you do DMSO. That is the reason they never did a double blind test on DMSO. That is an excuse not to give the compound credibility. Too cheap and too effective. Just like Cannabis oil.
