DMSO Health Benefits, Dosage and Application Tips

Posted by Renee (Boston) on 05/14/2022 41 posts

I put my 50/50 DMSO & distilled water into a 2 oz. glass bottle with sprayer and spray the areas I want to use it on. I then rub it in. I have been using it for 3 days this way with no irritation anywhere, including my hands that I don't wash after. I haven't noticed a ton of results yet but I think some minor benefits so far. I am also adding a pinch of Borax in my coffee in the morning. I had to take ibuprofen today because I couldn't walk on my swollen, inflamed feet. How long before I see more results? What is the average time for these protocols to work.

DMSO Smell Issues

Thank you, I've been searching for a way to get around that. Do you also take it internally with honey?

I tried it, by taking a teaspoon in o.j., but people are telling me I have an odor! I also used honey and water added in. Maybe I'll have to up the honey?!? Or not take it internally! If I get sick I will taking it though, whether I stink or not!

I am new at this DMSO, so I would like to know if anyone cleaned their skin first with betadine since it is used in hospitals? I read about some reactions to different materials, can you use gloves to apply this to the skin?

DMSO Smell Issues

0 out of 5 stars

My first question is how long can one keep DMSO? I have a gallon of Medical Grade that I forgot about and it has been stored in a dark closet for about 10 years. Is it still OK to use?

Secondly: Years ago I was using DMSO in an exterior manner and not really all that much but using daily. My friend and co-worker asked me if I was using it. I said Yes, she said that I stunk to high heavens and she recognized the smell because her husband used to soak his feet in it daily. I could not smell it at all and I have a really good smeller.

Is there an aromatic oil that will not be offensive after applying with the DMSO that anyone has used?

Love is....

Nebulizing DMSO

Inhalation of essential oils is the most effective way to take them and I wonder if this is true for DMSO as well?

Posted by Del (Paris, tn) on 05/23/2022

I hear they make different types of nebulizers. Search for ones that aren't made from plastics that will not tolerate dmso or mms, ect. I only know this from listening to certain doctors, namely the honorable "disinformation dozen." 🙄🙄🙄 So now we know that there are special nebulizers out there for different meds, ones that will hold up to the test.

Do you have any information on how to use it internally? My dog has a gum tumor that is growing rapidly. Had a surgery and they debulked and removed most of it but now it is coming back. It is also infected and has a strong odor. I am desperate and would try anything. I am giving him Essiac tea, supplements, and Coloidal silver. Do you have any suggestions on what could help? How to use DMSO internally?

Thank you!

Trigger Thumb

4 out of 5 stars

I just recently purchased some DMSO at the Tractor Supply store near me for a trigger thumb issue I'm having. I was nervous too, there are a lot of scary warnings out there! I just made sure I washed my hand with as hot of water as I could handle (and soap), patted dry and applied with a cotton ball.

I believe it's helping! So for your foot, soak and wash really thoroughly, let it sink in and dry on your skin for 15-20 minutes and then rinse off keeping in mind that if you use soap to wash it off, it could possibly take the soap through your skin...? I'm not sure if that's over-cautious, but better safe than sorry! Then use a white sock to be safe, I've read it can take clothing dyes right through the skin as well...

But I have been rinsing and putting my hand into a black thumb brace to keep it from bending and have had no issues...Good Luck!

Hello Nanowriter from Hotspot Texas,

Thanks for your reply concerning whether or not I funked my stomach up with the lemon juice/ DMSO combination. And sorry aboat not responding sooner.

Yes you maybe right aboat the dose of transdermal magnesium. I have not been using it for very long. Several times I have given my body a very lite all over with it mixed with DMSO and had no adverse reactions. But yes it could very well be as you've said.

I recently just did a three day dry fast. No food no water. I feel like my entire being just went through the fire so to speak. So I will see, now that I am drinking water and juice for the next few days how my guts respond.

Yes as you said it isn't anything to serious. All is good.

Alright then, I wish you a wonderful day and many days to come....justin

DMSO Side Effects
Posted by Kojak (Erie, Pa) on 04/29/2013

I need help. I ordered 99.9% DMSO on Amazon, but what I received was 99% industrial grade. I used it anyway on my tendonitis and other areas of the body. The thing I that I got wicked drunk that night and very very sick! I am wondering if it is possible that the other 1% is alcohol or Acetone in the DMSO and if that is what contributed to me getting that "drunk" feeling...? If so, seems like it is dangerous as could I have gotten alcohol poisoning? Somebody please email me if you know the answer. kathyjo (at) velocity [dot} net.

In researching DMSO today, I read on one site that it will greatly enhance the effect of alcoholic drinks so it's best not to drink at all when using DMSO therapeutically.

Pain Relief

HI U TIMH, , , , , , , , , MSM is made from DMSO and H202.

I am surprised that you have a pet. Hulda Clark said that if you have a house pet then you will have the same parasites. I believed her and after 46 years my wife no longer has a house cat. For the last 8 years she has had two outside cats and they love far more that the others. They are fed a specific amount at a specific time. Neither wears a watch, but they know exactly when feeding time is.

As you know Hulda Clark contended that parasites were the cause of all diseases.

I have ordered the reduced Glutathione to make a batch of lyposol. I can find no recipe so I will just use one tbsp per batch. How does that sound to you?


Recommended DMSO Books
Posted by Mystic Sage (Cutler Bay, Florida) on 07/15/2012

Hi Robert Henry, I read the same book as well. The one book that led me to this one mentioned on your post was titled The Heritic. I believe that is the title, by Mendelsohn(?). He mentioned DMSO aside from many interesting facts that involved the medical field during the fiasco with DMSO and the FDA. I had forgotten about DMSO until I read the first Trudeau book about a year ago and noticed that he mentioned The Heritic book in his. I have been slowly purchasing the books that Trudeau has mentioned in his book to help me along in understanding DMSO. Very fascinating. I still want to find out how I can orally take it if what I have is the 99.9% gel with 10% distilled water. I am psyched out with this stuff as well!

Recommended DMSO Books
Posted by Man (America) on 01/01/2014

To Mystic Sage, you had asked a question about your DMSO gel that was 99.9 percent pure. The gel formulation of DMSO contains an agent in it called carpobol and I quote and just substitute the DMSO for the first word. [0162] (Ophthalmic) [editor note here: DMSO] gels suitable for treatment of the eye include a compound or compounds of the invention suspended in a hydrophilic base, such as Carpobol-940 or a combination of ethanol, water and propylene glycol (e.g., in a ratio of 40:40:20). A gelling agent, such as hydroxylethylcellulose, hydroxypropylcellulose, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose or ammoniated glycyrrhizinate, is used. A preservative and/or a tonicity agent may optionally be included. --[Source:] And this site of the company that makes it and appears owns it: What about just plain DMSO, Capeech? .

How to Store DMSO

I just found what appears to be a leaded glass fancy type oil/vinegar bottle with a glass stopper and I poured my DMSO blend into it: The blend was 3 ounces of DMSO and 3 ounces of straight Glycerine and 1/2 ounce of cinamon/cayenne tincture and the later the same day I noticed a little white reside on the bottle. I was wondering if crystal might leak lead or some other chemical. If there is a doubt I will toss the blend I made and use something else to store my blend in. Any thoughts or knowledge about this?

Although I have got about 6 bottles of DSMO in a cupboard, I haven't as yet used it either externally or internally for one reason alone. That is the bottles are made of plastic and as DSMO can absorb the molecules of most substances that it comes in contact with I am afraid of what's in the plastic. So do you think that my fears are justified?
