Oil Pulling With DMSO
Posted by Man (Sojouring America) on 02/28/2014

I am looking into this idea of "Oil Pulling". And if it does work, why would DMSO not be a good idea? DMSO has some of the characteristics of an oil. I started last night with DMSO and I did it this morning too. I used pure 99.9 percent pure DMSO. It has a warming effect. I did not find it objectionable at all. (If I kick the bucket, please ignore anything I have ever said because I never met Jack, and not know Jack).

I think the reason you had such strong diarrhea after mixing those ingredients with the DMSO it's because magnesium if taken in a large dose causes diarrhea the DMSO just amplified everything you took as if you took larger doses of each of them.

I have been very satisfied with the DMSO I bought from Robert L. Brock at his DMSO is 99.996 % pure. That is good enough for me. All I could find local is 99 % and that leaves 1% of unknown. That might be fine for a silver coin but not for DMSO. I know this stuff is pure because it freezed right at the tempurature of the chemical. It was 65 degrees and it was frozen solid. The freezing point is 65.4 degrees of pure DMSO.

I made a bottle of cayenne extract with coconut oil and a spot of kosher glycerin and I put it on the shelf. I picked it up yesterday off the shelf and have not yet used it. It is too late to try it today because I have already applied a blend I made yesterday and I don't want to confuse the experiment. I like yesterday's blend which is DMSO, glycerine, Aloe Vera juice and homemade cayenne extract in alcohol. So far I am liking the blend. It is mild, yet still generates a heat pad affect. I may try this type of blend with Extract of Bhut Jolokia extract. It will be very hot I am certain but for a bad flare up it would probably be perfect for the relief. Thank you, and I am going back to work.

Quote from an review: "There is a Medical Grade and an Industrial Grade. You should ONLY use Medical Grade. The other is sold at hardware stores and is toxic. Furthermore, anything you put on your skin at the same time you use DMSO will penetrate immediately, so make sure it is not toxic. Ditto for clothing with strong dyes if your skin is still wet with DMSO. You will get 'garlic breath' seconds after use, which lasts 4-6 hrs. This is the sulfur breaking down in your body and producing sulfuric breath as waste, while also delivering oxygen to the muscles which are healed many times faster. This has also helped certain autistic children absorb somatropin (?) thru a dermal patch, which has alleviated a lot of food issues with certain types of autism... the rest can be read here: ;)

I don't notice the smell of DMSO for the most part. Apparently some people do. I had a clerk in a cheap store tell me today that she wanted me to do something about my odour because she said that somebody complained about the smell when I was in the store. I asked her how she knew that it was me? Then I asked the other obvious question: Are you going to shop for me? Where am I going to shop? Then I told her, "I have to take the medication that I have to take".

I didn't hear another word out of her. But she did not bother to even bag up my stuff that I bought.

I know there are many people taking DMSO and I have never heard of anyone complaining to anyone else.

I am thinking that people who smoke cigarettes may be more sensitive to the smell of DMSO. Can anyone echo that?

Re; ear infection; Before you do anything else you might want to go over to the "pets" section on this site where you will find something called "Blue Juice" for ear infections in dogs. Ahh hate to admit it but it works just as well in human ears. ( Yes, I tried it myself, no harm and it works swell.) Good luck hope you feel better!!!!

RH: For over 20 yrs I hadn't a pet due to being un-established and living from pillar-to-post. Factor in also the tragic single or bachelor status, and in 2004 where I moved to a country setting (now become completely developed) it was so wonderful to have a pet kitty, then a mommy kitty and a batch of kittens. I have one of that litter still abiding here and doing well. I kept them wormed regular w/ Piperazine for adult Ascaris but looking back in hindsight, would have also needed the Ivermectin.

Anyway, about the LET. Are you feeling improved from the LET Vit-C?? I have been thinking how much assured you should feel as to that recent cancer deal (if I am not mistaken it was yourself).

As for the Glutathione, many people use a more cost effective method of supplementing NAC, Selenium, and Melatonin orally, although Liposomal GTH is the best it terms of effectiveness. IMHO Reduced Glutathione for liposomal encapsulation is used best as a cofactor for either of the two coenzymes CoQ10 and ALA (which are both poorly absorbed orally). One part GTH to 1/2 part CoQ10 or ALA. The Lipo C would be good maybe 2x weekly while you could take the CoQ10 or ALA daily. You could rotate the CoQ10 and ALA on a daily or weekly basis.

Given these recommendations, it could only be surmised that your energy levels will greatly increase, as well as generally improving the overall health of both body & mind (especially in the aging or declining process).

Recommended DMSO Books
Posted by Man (America) on 12/30/2013

I put a complete copy of the book DMSO: The Persecuted Drug by Pat McGrady as a mirror of the other copy so that there is a second copy on the web. Having several backups of information like this is helpful. What I see is that the Medical Industrial Complex has control issues and they don't like people learning too much and they use the police power of the state to enforce their arbitrary codes/laws. There is no money to be made in fees on DMSO. It is not patentable because it is a natural substance. This is a miracle substance and it is cheap and it does major good. Nobody is interested in cheap because there is no profit to be made. There is no money telling people to use a product they can go to the store and buy themselves.

Internal use of DMSO, to Tre from Memphis, Tn, Hi Tre, I have never used DMSO internally, seeing how you have read a lot on the many things you can use this for, just a safety reminder, make sure everything the DMSO touches is very clean, and also if you plan on using capsules or tablet form of vitamins, do a trial run in water first, to make sure it dissolves in 20 minutes or it might not work, but then again DMSO is classified as a solvent, so it might, but just to make sure you might want to put it in a glass to check the disolveability before you put it into the eyedroper. Good luck and please keep us posted on exactly what you did and how well it works.

Thank You for explaining Vitamin C, short and to the point.

I had a similar observation doing alcohol withdrawal treatments on myself. The vitamins from the store were useless. But when I was getting an I.V in the vein, I was up and rosy looking in hours. Otherwise, it would be several days.

Withdrawal is not the same as "hangover". It's deadly.

How to Use DMSO

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.

Re buying DMSO in Australia - DMSOAU ( )

are very well priced and of a high quality. Free shipping too. For those committed to DMSO, there are options for bulk prices which attract even better savings. I hasten to add that I am not in any way associated with this company - I provide this in the interests of community service.

I've bought some sprayer bottles (amber glass) on ebay for trans dermal applications, but am now concerned over comments here which indicated that some plastics are affected by DMSO. Does anyone have feedback in relation to possibly metal spray units. Of course, knowing my luck, there'll be a metal component which is also adversely affected! Still, any assistance / advice would be greatly appreciated.

In closing, thank you to all of you for your contributions and your questions. Many have proven to be significantly helpful in my ever widening search for improved health.



Hair Loss
Posted by Karen (Durango, Colorado) on 11/21/2010

A friend of mine uses Cedarwood oil, Yucca Extract, then DMSO on his head & he has new growth. His hair loss was pretty typical of most cases, the first to go are the front & the top of the back of his head. He's pretty encouraged, wasn't taking it very seriously when I started him on it but now he's the one reaching for the bottles.

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.

I am diffusing DMSO 70/30 .5 ml in 100 ml of distilled water.

I have searched for this method but have only found nebulizer info and it is scant at that.

If the DMSO is anti inflammatory then the addition of Clove Bud essential oil seems a fitting combination right now and then perhaps Ginger EO eventually.

I will ease into it for now and see where it leads me.

Hey, ORH - the problem with that is that when somebody tells me to do something or to not do something...I think you can guess the rest, ROFL!

That said...I suspect DMSO, applied topically, doesn't go straight to the blood stream but, rather, the LYMPHATIC "stream". Which is why I think some can taste it when they apply it topically and some can't or application to one spot creates the taste but another spot doesn't. At any rate...I don't know enough about the lymphatic system to say, either way.

I don't use it as a "carrier" because it can't carry anything through the skin that can't get through on its own so...why waste it when a couple of drops of tincture under the tongue - which I suspect is a direct route to the lymphatic system - would work just as well. Or even tea, due to the salivary glands' connection to it. All you'd have to do is swish it around your mouth before you swallowed it. Even if it tastes bad, if your body wants what's in it, it'll take it. If it doesn't, it'll gag, spit it out, throw it up or otherwise reject it because a lot of elements of remedies the body only occasionally needs are merely toxins, when it has no use for them. Like muscle testing - which would be a whole lot less...uncomfortable, LOL.

Which is also why compounding - I.e. mixing a bunch of stuff together - is...well...not a good idea. The remedy might be in there but the first order of business for the body is going to be wrangling the toxins - I.e. the stuff it doesn't need - and a lot of the good "babies" are probably going to be thrown out with the bathwater.

Internal Use
Posted by Cindy (Illinois, USA) on 06/29/2021 335 posts

I don't think lymph acts like blood. I suspect what gets in it is passed along, "hand to hand". The nature of what it is would depend on where it's passed along TO but it appears to move "stuff" faster than blood but I'm still exploring so...I'll probably never get to the bottom of it - no pun intended, LOL!

Each morning, I take a low dose of amour thyroid, 15 grains, the apply glutathione and a biodentical hormone, both transdermally. To help with absorption, I put a few drops of DMSO on the glutathione. I have been doing this a little while.

One morning, I added a lot more of the DMSO by mistake (maybe a teaspoon or more?), but since it was external, I didn't think it mattered. I then took guaifenisin (mucinex), and had all of the reactions of dosing too high on it. Thankfully, it wasn't timed release, but the effects still took about 4 hours to wear off, so mostly annoying, and guafinesin isn't toxic. It seemed the only difference that day was the amount of DMSO. I tend to be sensitive, and maybe it was because everything was taken closer together, but DMSO is pretty powerful.

DMSO and Lugol's Iodine: yea- I think.

After a detoxing bath filled with epsom salts and borax, I mixed some DSMO cream I had with iodine and applied it to my lower back, and then kind of smeared more iodine on my chest. It couldn't had been more than 3 droppers full of 2% lugols and within about 5 minutes I became aware of a slight pain which I realized was my thyroid. It kind of scared me, it didnt really hurt, it was just that I was very aware of it, and had never felt it before. Anyone else experience something like this? I know DSMO acts as a carrier and allows things to be absorbed, the whole blood brain barrier thing..?

I have also got dmso from the farm store. I assume used on horses. It was in the animal section of course. The thing that worries me is all the warnings on this bottle. It pretty much says not for human consumption. So are they selling the wrong grade to the feed stores to treat arthritis in horses???? Those of you who got it from the farm store do you feel safe using this in spite of these warnings?? I once bought dmso from a company and loved it. Great for burns, but I saw no warnings on the bottle. Any thoughts so much appreciated. My bottle came from Tulsa, Ok. if that helps.

First time trying DMSO. Just received my order (via Amazon), distributed by a construction/materials company. Claimed to be pharmaceutical grade (at least 99.9% pure, and undiluted), with a glass roll-on bottle and a 16oz refill bottle which is #2 HDPE plastic, the recommended material.

I heard that it doesn't have a scent, or very little. But this stuff has a chemically smell (not sulfur or garlic or other things described as normal). How would I know if it's actually what it claims to be?

I have been using it for a few days, straight on the skin, sometimes with coconut oil after application. There's only a fleeting and mild heating-up sensation. Haven't experienced any garlicky taste. Some itching later, but not more than I get from using transdermal magnesium chloride, which is really itchy to me. Except that with the DMSO I sometimes get itching in places where I had not even applied it to (like the back of my neck, which broke out in itchy bumps like mosquito bites after sweating).

Another question: I had also dropped some in my mouth with iodine, as Walter Last suggested on is website for possible deep tooth problems (may have a problem with a root canal from over a year ago, which never fully stopped hurting). But then I thought about the 3 fillings I have left, made up of the old style mercury amalgam. Not to mention whatever material it is that filled the root canal.What's the probability that the DMSO would leech the mercury and other materials quickly and directly into my blood (even across the blood-brain barrier)? And more so than would happen anyways without it?

I have been drinking a bit of DMSO too, in mint tea (with a shot of Borax dissolved in purified water, and sometimes a few drops of Lugol's, and ACV which had eggshells steeped in it for calcium). Probably not more than a quarter to a half teaspoon of DMSO yet. I'm undecided as to whether I should be doing this or not, but seemed to be worth a try.

I will be getting magnesium chloride, and a bottle of colloidal mineral liquid, ascorbic acid powder, and MSM powder. Maybe to make a mixed solution with, to add some DMSO to and drink.

Any suggestions or potential reasons this may not be a good idea?

Oil Pulling With DMSO
Posted by Frank (Rochester, Ny) on 03/02/2014

I would be careful using DMSO as an oil pulling "oil". The bacteria from any dental plague in your mouth will get absorbed into your bloodstream and might cause heart problems like Infectious Endocarditis. If I were you, I would only use the traditional oils that have been used for centuries in this particular technique.

Better But With Side Effects

It does not make sense to me that the DMSO would draw into the bloodstream a large thing like a bacteria. It is too big. I would not think it could make it through the blood barrier. From what I understand is that DMSO transports light, small molecules.


My issue with "Oil-Pulling" with DMSO is the tooth throbbing I get in one of my mid teeth. I do like the sensation of the warming that I get though. Like a gentle heat pad for the mouth. I don't "Oil-Pull" with DMSO every day.

Hello Justin,

I, too, am a DMSO advocate and use it regularly as you use it topically and internally and have done so "off and on" as you said.

While it's natural to think of "association" as "causation" .... my first take on your reaction is that the cause is not...NOT.... the DMSO combo. It just so happened that a case of Montezuma's revenge hit you at about the same time that you took the DMSO combo.

As evidence, if the DMSO were the cause, you would have been over it in a day or two. But the fact that you continue to suffer tells me you have a very bad case of bacterially induced gastro infection.

And you're living in Mexico. I visited Albania/Romania a year ago and had read in the autobiography "MD" which is the life of a parasitalogist that Montezuma's is actually world wide and can be caused by bacteria and virus. There is a lot around the Mediterranean as well as Latin America. Well, it hit me in a big way, but I was expecting it....never felt anything like it before; like a fist in my stomach and I went straight to my Apple Cider Vinegar ..... and bought more a few days later. Avoided the huge consequences, but barely.

Maybe I'm wrong...and I look forward to see what others say. But a die off? I don't think so.

Get on ACV asap... two tablespoons in glass of water...drink over an hour...repeat two hours later. See if that improves and if so, you will know the cause was pathogens and not DMSO.

PS....I have NEVER had any adverse reaction with DMSO...and taken it for decades.

The only person who ever complained was my girlfriend who cannot stand it. No one else seemed bothered. I used it for my painful bladder which was so bad I could not even drive my car over the bumps in the road. I read that doctors were using it for this and it helped with the pain greatly. I am finally cured all these many years later from this. I meditate and sought the reason for the bladder and was finally healed. I still use DSMO for Lyme disease arthritis I acquired many years ago while hiking and being bit by tick. I had the Bull's eye and the whole thing before anyone knew what it was. I am still stuck with the arthritis mostly in my neck and back, chest. Now I am thinking about using DMSO for an ear infection as a last ditch effort. I have been taking antibiotic ear drops for ear for the past ten years at 200 dollars per month. Insurance pays but will no longer do so. Ear comes and goes and was really bad with the start of winter. I got this infection from someone who gave me a massage and breathed into my mouth. This infection started in my lungs and moved to my ears. The ear drops contained antibiotics with cortisone. I just bought over the counter cortisone and am using it. I do not have a fever. My neck is now involved and my left tonsil/throat. I just saw an allergist who did not know about this ear. I saw the dead of Cedar's Sinai who did not know about it either and another doctor on Santa Monica Blvd. Does anyone now if DMSO will work? I bet it will at least get rid of the pain.

I purchased DMSO gel 99.9 pure with 10% Distilled water. I had excruciating pain on the tail bone from physical work around the house, as in moving furniture. I figured I would take a chance and just try it so I first used the roll-on with the same percentage of the gel, first. It felt as if the pain was never going to cease but I was not going to give up so easily. I applied DMSO (once) for two days. I thought that if the pain still persisted on the third day, I would consult with a physician. Well, on the third day, I felt no pain at all, as if it were never there!

In reading some of the entries on here, I have become quite curious in exploring DMSO further. I would like to know if everyone here purchases DMSO in the same form. If I am to take it orally, do I purchase a different form other than gel, or can I still use the gel that I currently have? How are many of you on this thread figuring out what measurements are needed for your ailments. Someone mentioned douching and I, too, am curious as to how it can be done and what form is used. Should DMSO and MSM be used together? I am just discovering information about MSM. Another member mentioned a book on it and I am going to purchase a copy. If anyone can answer or outline information on what I need, please do so. I believe in DMSO.

Msm is a by- product of DMSO. No need to combine.

I am no expert on this but I think that combining the two in proper ratio insures top levels in the body. DMSO has many benefits as does MSM, but the DMSO can cause odor problems at therapeutic doses, where this does not occur with MSM. Evidently DMSO is limited in it's conversion to MSM.

MMS and DMSo or both great for many things, but the fastest product on viruses, bacteria, parasites, etc. is the zapper. Google Dr. Hulda Clark's zapper, or Don Crafts zapper. They are gone in minutes.

I finally have some 99% dmso. I have read a ton on what it can do. Now I am ready to mix it with vitamins. I have read people mixing b-12 and b-5. I am going to get some eye drop containers and start the mixing. Question is what is the ratio? mg per ml? do I use just dmso and the vitamin or dilute it with distilled water? how often can I put the drops on my skin per day? also what other vitamins would be safe in this procedure?

How to Store DMSO

Thank you, Mama to Many, for your response. I think that is good advice. There may have been residue of some thing inside the vessel itself. I was pretty certain that lead crystal did not leach lead into the liquid, but I don't know for certain.

How to Store DMSO

I have experienced anxiety about that also. I transferred mine from the dense plastic in which it was shipped---over to cleaned, dark, glass wine bottles. At least I feel safer about the product now.

Dear Hobart, I read your post on DMSO how when you applied it to your test areas and the skin puckered and felt dry. I have done the same thing on my finger where I have really bad joint pain. It took away the pain but left my finger puckered, pruned and sensitive to touch. Did it go away or is there still damage to the tissue where you applied it? I haven't seen an answer to your post. So I am hoping you can tell me if your skin went back to normal or not. Thank you

I've only had that puckering when I've touched water after DMSO application. The same as when staying in water for a long time. Seems it sped up the absorption of the water through my skin where the DMSO was. Also could be chemicals from cotton swab if not Organic cotton?

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.

I just ordered some DMSO from Amazon. Scheduled delivery is next Tuesday.

He Healandglory...A good place to buy quality DMSO is Dr Stanley Jacob's website -- shown here. Dr Jacob is the guru who originally discovered and who has researched all the beneficial properties of DMSO since the 1960s.

Ebay is proly the best place for DMSO purchase as well as many other like products as there are a variety of sellers which keeps the competition up and the prices low.

Calcium Deposits
Posted by Stuart (Oklahoma) on 12/07/2014


Tested 1.0 ounce Papain dissolved into 4 ounce of DMSO gel (90%) applied topically over the spine.

Papain mix applies very sticky; must let it dry before you put on shirt, or it will glue together.

More over, the mix liquifies to a amber goo after two days. I will dispose the prepared mix, and just make 'just enough' mix for daily use. It smells bad when the mix ages.

I may recommend using a salt shaker and apply papain powder directly to DMSO applied to spinal axis.

Results after three days is still unknown. No issues, positive or negative; none is expected until about two weeks daily application.

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!!!

Someone said they had a stubborn wart...use DMSO..put it on every day and it WILL leave you! It might take a couple of weeks...also good for herpes cold sores and the best anti-inflammatory available today.

DMSO with Calcium Chloride would cause sterility if injected into testes as a non-surgical neuter for pets. I have not heard of anything else.

Posted by Sam (Boise, Idaho) on 03/26/2009

Very interested in the details of how you have used the DMSO. Do you apply it daily or only when you feel an outbreak coming on? ALSO, do you apply it to broken blisters/open wounds? many thanks, Sam

Do you know if there's a difference between the DMSO you buy on Amazon and the one at a tractor supply store? Anyway, thank you in advance.

How did you use the eucalyptus oil? For the actual blisters or pain from shingles? Oral or on the skin? I had shingles after Covid and only some blisters in the lower back, but the pain on my leg (neurological?) has persisted, sometimes gets better and sometimes is very intense. I will be grateful for any response. Thanks

I think Dr. Jacobs ingested some DMSO everyday.

To Charles from Masterson, New Zealand

What do you mean by 40%? Do you take it in juice? I have book but haven't read it yet. I have had a TIA 2 years ago. I am on apixaban to thin my blood. Do you know anyone on blood thinners who take DSMO? I took it just before I went to the ER. I suffer no ill effects from the TIA. I believe the DSMO made the difference.
