A great book full of uses, reported cases & explanations: The DMSO Handbook For Doctors - Archie H Scott; easy to understand for non-doctors. I bought from "Book Depository" - free shipping to New Zealand. Example: 'Alzheimer's & Other Dementia'.

This writer had a friend who died at the age of 101. She showed no signs of mental decline. She used it (DMSO) regularly for over 30 years." We have been using DMSO for several years.In particular, we take 1 teaspoon of 40% every day, first thing in the morning.

As another precaution, we also put VCO (coconut oil) in our cereal. Buy this book -you will be so glad that you did. I am 81.

DMSO Application Tips
Posted by BevilNC (NC) on 05/08/2022

My practice has always been to wash as normal/shower or clean the area to be applied with soap and water and rinse it well. Let it dry then apply the DMSO with an organic cotton ball. Then I made sure to let it dry before putting any clothing over the area. Betadine would simply be carried into your skin by the DMSO and betadine is not pure iodine, it has other ingredients you don't really want absorbed into your blood stream. You need to be careful with DMSO but not to the point of being fearful. If it eases your mind you could clean the area with food grade hydrogen peroxide since that would be fine getting carried in. No gloves as the heating action of DMSO is not kind to plastics and it would possibly dissolve them and carry those chemicals in.

I just starting using dmso. I had an ingrown toe nail and applied dmso straight from the bottle and in a day and a half, it's resolved itself.

I'm using it straight from the bottle for my inner thigh psoas muscles and don't seem to have any reaction from it. I'm looking forward to more issues to be solved with dmso.

I haven't, no. I don't use essential oils - aside from repeated attempts to replicate the fragrance of an AWESOME body spray I had 20+ years ago called "Grapefruit & Daisy" which I didn't discover was a "special edition" until half past "too late".

Do you diffuse with DMSO? I want to see what it might draw out of cayenne but haven't gotten around to that. Cayenne and castor oil seem to have some sort of electrical activity to them that I don't think survives the process of a tincture whereas cayenne doesn't seem at all affected as a tea, which is strange...with the amount of actual heat used to make tea...but I can't actually be sure of that. DMSO seems to have an electrical aspect to it as well but I don't think it's the same. Cayenne and castor oil seem alike but DMSO seems..."deeper" or...something like that. Even to the point of incompatibility with a lot of things. Like MMS, which seems to be on the other, high side of what seems like a scale and also not very compatible with much...I don't know...

People don't talk about it but I've never had a problem with death since learning, upon my first experience with it, that everybody dies which meant, in my little girl mind, that since the best of the best and the most cowardly cowards that have ever lived all got through it, it can't be a bad thing so, we've been buds ever since and I spent a lot of time exploring the idea of it. Much to my mother's chagrin - and stark-raving fear for her fearless kid.

Strangely, men seem more susceptible to a fear of death. I suspect, due to a life of pumping testosterone, creating instances of not always "doing the right thing" and the judgement angle.

I'm glad to know that a woman took it as intended. It was interesting and a hoot but wasn't actually a "big deal". Which was sort of...I don't want to say "disappointing" but I would have thought it would have been more...exciting...I guess. Anyway...lol - I was young and an explorer and so...everything was exciting.

And, you're welcome.

Death and Life Experiences

I have heard many tell of how they went from earth, to Glory and back to earth stories.

And if you are not a resident within the gates of pearls or the gate of hell you have simply been given more time.

Almost every one that I have heard tell the story of the Light, and many tell of feeling liquid love around them, even those who did not believe in Love.

If you are back in your body there is more to the life and death story to experience.

My brother tell's of how in his young gang banging days, at about 16 years old he almost died. I know that he was almost beaten to death with a baseball bat. His friends called mother and said he was dead.

He told me of his tunnel and light experience. He repeats his story usually when a friend dies. Yet he knows he did not make the whole trip. And if anyone says they are in a better place, he asks how do you know have you been there?

I try to console him by saying, maybe the speaker is saying heaven is better than hell.

If you are going to take it internally, then the best way may be to try and diffuse it with any essential oil of your choice.

Diffusing goes right into the blood stream within one minute and crosses the BB barrier without losing potency through digestion.

If you want to take internally, then you can buy enteric coated capsules and put a drop into each. This ensures it survives digestion and opens about 20% the way down into the small intestine.

Now, I have not done this personally but I am trained as CNHP and Certified Aromatherapist.

I also own a business in Indonesia that produces Essential oils and know that diffusion is the quickest and most effective way to treat the over all body.

Nebulizing DMSO
Posted by Cindy (Illlinois, USA) on 05/19/2021 335 posts

I'm not going to "nebulize" DMSO but I DO take the stopper out and inhale the vapors. I don't really have any issues but I can definitely feel it, nevertheless. I also do that, occasionally, with hydrogen peroxide, ClO2 and an extra strong cayenne tincture I made. Though not at the same time, mind you. They all have an effect, inhaling the vapors, but I don't really have any issues so can't attest to the effect any of them would have on a problem.

I DO wish I'd tried inhaling the cayenne tincture vapors 0 and the others if the cayenne didn't work - when I had that sinus awfulness after Covid, but didn't think of it until later.

I'm going to "wild ferment" some cayenne peppers all the way through the bubbling and try inhaling vapors (and maybe some probiotics) from THAT - without the CO2, of course. But I'll wait for some sort of sinus "thing". I'm thinking I'll just put some in a little pinch bowl with a bit of the brine and inhale whatever probiotics might come off it, see what happens. I don't get sinus infections but I DO get stuffy when the house does.

I get dmso at the farm store, too. If it's good enough for million dollar horses, it's good enough for me. It has to say not for human use or it would be regulated and you wouldn't be able to get it. Your lightbulbs probably say don't eat them, too. It's all government regulations gone amuck.


Sore Throat
Posted by Cindy (Illinois, Usa) on 07/06/2016 335 posts

I just read that in a DMSO book. It's 1 teaspoon in a couple ounces of water or juice. Once or twice per day - once per day for regular use and twice for problems and then after it's done its thing you cut back to once again.

I just made a tiny batch of DMSO lotion (50% DMSO and 50% aloe) and put it on one side of my neck to see what a topical application would do to a sore throat.

I definitely taste it AND my ear popped open - which is where my sore throat originated. I can feel it in my throat too - like it's sort of "diffusing" the soreness. Still hurts when I swallow but it's only been about 10 minutes.

I was actually looking for info on using it topically, for my daughter's boyfriend who has shoulder stuff from old sports injuries. Apparently you can use it topically even for internal issues, which makes sense but surprised me.

I'm getting ready to make some ear drops (50% DMSO and 50% distilled water). I didn't even know my ear was plugged up until it popped open! COOL!

The DMSO fixed my sore throat before it spread to full blown, on both sides. It also, apparently, eliminated some swelling in my neck that I hadn't realized WAS swelling. Not sure what that's about.

Haven't used the ear drops yet but put some of the DMSO aloe on a q-tip and ran that around in both ears, which are now popping - both on their own and when I swallow. So that' at approximately 5 minutes. Interesting.


Bone Spur
Posted by Nick (Muntinlupa, Philippines) on 11/24/2014

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.

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!

DMSO Combinations
Posted by Angelo (Boise, Id) on 02/01/2015

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.


DMSO Side Effects
Posted by Marsh (Colorado) on 07/19/2021

Although this post is 7 years old, I just had an experience in Mexico after traveling there 3 times this year on business. Upon each return my system was a bit out of sorts. This month I had something like an IBS attack (stomach was in great pain which caused bad lower back pain). Acupuncture, DMSO and a low does of CBD/THS (2.5mg each) helped. After about 3 days of pain, I remembered the discomfort was similar to having a horrible parasite many years ago. Reintroduced an IBS elemental liquid diet with absorb plus (also bone broth) to calm inflamed intestines and 1/2t pure gum spirits of turpentine to kill whatever it was. I keep turp on hand and will start traveling with it in the future especially to third world countries. After the second day of the diet, the discomfort stopped but still eating foods that are easy to digest. I suggest researching absorb plus, and Dr. Jennifer Daniels about gum spirits.

There is a book on DMSO by the same doctors who wrote one about MSM. I only read the MSM one but what I understood is that it is clear that you can use DMSO internally, I even think that it is usually used internally but that because of the odor you can better use MSM. One of the doctors has ran a DMSO clinic in the US for many years, maybe he still does..... If you go on Amazon you will find several books on both subjects.


Sunburn
Posted by Gp (Hobart, Tasmania) on 03/05/2010

This is a remedy I found worked for sunburn:

After working up on our roof one day, my boyfriend and I got a bit sunburnt. Naughty, I know.

I keep DMSO in the cupboard for other uses -- boyfriend's inflammatory back pain, my foot pain (plantar fasciitis) as well as other general inflammatory ailments. I had read it was useful for healing heat burns, so I thought I'd try it for sunburn. Everything I've read about DMSO warns to make sure the skin is completely clean of chemical residues. I guess the only way to be sure is to very thoroughly exfoliate the area, so I did this in the shower with a "skin-peel" cloth (no soaps or other chemicals, it's purely mechanical exfoliation). After I'd towelled off I dabbed on some DMSO with a cotton swab. For anyone who's not familiar with the effects of DMSO -- it provides almost instant relief for pain when applied topically. So the burning stopped as soon as I put this on. I let it soak into my skin for about 5 mins, then with another cotton swab rubbed extra-virgin coconut oil into the skin. Well, what a relief! It took the stinging and heat out of my skin straight away. I repeated this several times that night, wearing a clean cotton t-shirt (with no fabric softener in it, just to be sure). It healed really quickly, didn't peel like my boyfriend's sunburn did, and kept my skin looking really good.

It seems like DMSO helps your skin absorb more of what you put on it, so it stands to reason that the EVCO was more able to penetrate my skin and help it "heal". I'm sure the antioxidant properties of the oil were a help to my sun-damaged skin -- as we all know, sun exposure stimulates production of free-radicals, which can cause cancer. I'm not saying this will stop you getting skin-cancer from sunburn, but it did help heal the damage or prevent it from being as bad as it should have. There are also some studies which have suggested a certain level of protection offered by extra virgin coconut oil, that it helps the skin's natural defences where UV light is concerned. Perhaps this is because EVCO is one of the closest substances to human sebum.

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.

DMSO topical application

I used DMSO for the first time last night (topically), as a guinea pig test before using it on my boyfriend's back.

On another note, the pain relief was amazing! I hadn't realised how much my feet normally hurt. I have a condition called "Haglund's Deformity" and also some excess bone in my feet which causes me much pain. I wasn't having a "sore feet" day, but I noticed with utter amazement after trying it on 1 foot only that the other was was actually hurting quite a bit. I must be so used to it that I ignore it normally. The foot I tried the DMSO on felt "buoyant", that's the only was I can describe it. Light and slightly tingly, complete absence of pain or aching. And I only applied it at 3 points on the skin! I'm looking forward to experimenting more with this amazing substance, and hoping it will provide some relief for my BF who suffers from "Scheuermann's Disease".

I just had a question for anyone with experience -- it's left my skin puckered and dry feeling, like when you been in the bath too long and you "prune", only it's dried out now. Will this go away??? I would assume it does but I'm hoping I haven't done myself any permanent damage! I left cotton swabs soaked in the solution on my skin for about half an hour and it stung so i took them off, then noticed this skin effect.

The way DMSO works means that it is very dehydrating to skin. After you use it, maybe 10 minutes later, put some quality oil on your skin, I use castor oil but it can be anything that is healthy. You'll need this to rehydrate the skin.

Warning

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.

Herpes
Posted by Blue Monkey (Toronto, On) on 03/08/2012

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.

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 think the "electrical" thing is a matter of using two (or more) things together, if they're close to the same, they interfere with one another but if they're far enough apart, they can work - not TOGETHER but - in TANDEM. Where one does its thing and the other does its thing and they sort of end up cleaning up after one another. Like MMS and DMSO. They're very different but appear to sort of "support" one another. Whereas they don't seem to work well with "middle of the road" things. Perhaps, being "too close" to them, when it comes to their "electrical" properties. Or, perhaps, the...frequencies (?) of their "microcurrents". Which is something I've only recently discovered are actually recognized, scientifically.

I am not familiar with Dr. Jacobs's work, so I will look into his wisdom.

By not needing anything to get into the body, what are you referring to?

Aromatically is the fasted way for anything to enter the body.

Transdermally, your are fighting through 4 layers of skin, 5 on the palms and feet.

I do not see it as possible for the full dose to make it through the skin. Plus the constant uptake to keep the dose high enough to the area applied.

Thanks for the info on Jacobs and I will research it.


Arthritis, Cancer
Posted by Gary (Georgia) on 06/27/2021

DMSO can not cure RA.

Alleviate the inflammation, yes.

RA is an autoimmune disease and the only way to remedy this is to test for the triggers (auto antibodies) and eliminate them to turn off the body attacking itself.

Cancer lies on the spectrum of AI disease.

You should be tested for it. AI shuts down the immune response and your body cannot fight cancer with the innate immune system.

Functional Medicine treats immunity issues as it relates to chronic disease.

DMSO Side Effects
Posted by Sebastian (Ottawa, Ontario) on 03/03/2017

I too began to use DMSO a few days ago and initially did not notice any smell or weird taste as I was expecting. Later on I noticed that there was a very subtle smell after all, the kind that you might not even notice yourself, but only your partner will :) Luckily my wife is with me on the experiment so she doesn't mind.

I also heard that the smell or taste is more often seen in men than in women.

Regarding the stinging and sunburn-like sensation - I had that as well. It also depends on what part of the body you are applying it to. Neck and shoulders tend to be the most sensitive, while knees and elbows can tolerate concentrated DMSO. Diluting the DMSO a bit more took care of the issue. Also, when I mistakenly put some strong DMSO on my face and it started burning like crazy and got red and scary, a few drops of diluted lavender oil fixed it in just a few minutes.

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.

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 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!

Where to Buy: Philippines

Hi Joy...I have never been able to find or buy DMSO in the Philippines. So I generally order my DMSO from UK. See this link.

However, I have also recently found a website where the price of DMSO is much cheaper:

DMSO Combinations

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.
