DMSO Application Tips

5 out of 5 stars

I have done tons of research and just completed reading three books on the DMSO subject.

99.9% is sold in feed stores for use on animals, and 99.995% is sold as pharmacy grade - difference is that the purer grade has been sent through an additional charcoal filtering to remove any tiny contaminates that may remain after processing. Amazon sells the purest 99.995 grade very reasonable.

One of the most recommended ways to apply is with a natural bristle paint brush, or organic cotton balls. Never use water to mix with unless it is distilled water, otherwise what ever may be in the water will be also pulled into your skin; anything you mix with DMSO will be pulled into the skin and below. It is a very safe product if you use properly and very beneficial to many aches and pains.

Don't cover the application if you use it anywhere above the waist and dilute it further than any mixture you use below the waist. You may cover it if used below the waste but use clean white cotton material or towels so that the dye from the material is not also sucked through you skin. An application can be wiped off after 30 minutes as that is the longest it takes to absorb the benefits.

Always make sure your skin in very clean and dry before using. Never rub it on with your hand - it can cause skin irritation in that spot and if left on the palms of your hands, will also look like they've been soaked in water for hours. The skin will most likely turn a reddish color for a short period of time as the circulation is stepped up but will go away very soon. Slight itching may happen but do not itch it. It will stop soon. Not all experience these side affects but a lot do.

Hope this was helpful to those with questions.


Arthritis, Cancer

I have been using and recommending DMSO for many years! It cured my arthritis, and has cured three people I know of cancer! Yes, even stage four cancer! DMSO is a miracle drug! I do not recommend drug to be taken for preventative reasons, but I think DMSO can even help to clean the arteries and heal the heart, as I have also lived with an irregular heartbeat all my life but I've noticed that after taking the DMSO for my arthritis my constant irregular heartbeat has also vanished and now only once in a while feel my heart out of rhythm and even them not as pronounced as before!

I've been an herbalist most of my life and DMSO and wild lettuce have impressed me more than anything else!

Take no notice of WebMD site - they are shills of the pharma industry, and they don't want anyone taking something that is going to detract from selling their very own poisons.

Wikipedia also is open to editing by anyone authorised to do so, and FDA/pharma shills can easily alter information - you could too, if you paid for the privilege.


DMSO and Sterilization

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.


DMSO Application Tips

DMSO helps with so many issues. Yet I think that there are a few things to do to really give it optimal effectiveness.

First is eliminations

Vegetable oils use butter or coconut oil only. This helps your digestion and helps your liver function.

Gluten, GMO, all grains if you can. This will get rid of pain to an extent, help you digest and absorb nutrients optimally.

Aspartame: It is poison to the body, stopping it will reduce pain. If you put it near insects they will not eat it.

Fluoride in water and anything you buy. It is a neurotoxin. I had lost all of my brain abilities. Could not drive. Think. Read. I was laying on cement in my basement waiting to die. I managed to look up Ted's remedies here on Earth Clinic. I took 1/8 tsp of 20 mule team borax in a liter of water. Drank that in bits in beverages through the day. My mind began to work. My pain began to diminish. 4 days out of 7. It displaces the fluoride with healing boron. Balances hormones disrupted by envirornmental toxins. For men it is 1/4 tsp of borax in 1 liter of water.

Aluminum: this gathers up in the brain and stops it from functioning. The best detoxifier is borax. And 1 lime squeezed in a glass. 6 to 8 tsp.Add 1/2 tsp baking soda. Let fizz. Add 1/2 glass of water. Drink 2x a day. 1/2 hour after food. 5 days out of 7.

Calcium supplements or excess calcium. This causes joint pain. Circulation problems. The lime drink above removes excess calcium from circulation. Improves digestion. Keeps cortisol, overnight from jumping all over. Improves stages of sleep, helps optimize function of gallbladder, pancreas, kidney and bladder.

Table salt...use sea salt. It has all the trace minerals in their correct forms and amounts to run the body.

Sugar

No lo fat or sugar free foods

Chlorine...in the tub chlorine steam can affect the heart. Use fish tank dechlorinator. Chlorine filter in kitchen.

Pain relief.

Epsom bath. 1/2 the ingredients for foot soak. 2 cups Epsom

1 cup borax

1 capful fish tank dechlorinator

1 cup hydrogen peroxide to oxygenate the body

Soak 20 minutes minimum. As often as you can.

Magnesium. Supplements 250 mg 2x a day. Mag citrate for constipated types. Mag malate for runny stool types.

Magnesium oil. Buy magnesium flakes. Online supplement shops etc. 60% flakes in a mason jar. Add 40% spring water. Let stand 1 hour. Cap and shake. This you can put in spray bottle and spray sore areas. Put some on feet at bedtime to get it through entire body. Your body uses magnesium from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. It may sting, add more mag oil..or water..or castor oil to stop stinging until your levels rise. Once adequate it no longer stings.

Castor oil pack. A folded piece of flannel to fit treatment area. Into a ziploc. Add enough castor oil to saturate the cloth in bag. Use bag to squeeze out excess, while pulling it out. Add mag oil. Then add DMSO. Apply to painful area, lay on an old towel, add saran wrap, add a heating pad on medium. 20 minutes or longer. As often as you wish.

DMSO the area must be clean before applying as DMSO carries everything through the skin to target areas.

Here is Teds chapter on DMSO if you type in E.C.s search box DMSO and your subject. Day arthritis you will see all available info re your search. https://ted.earthclinic.com/supplements/dmso.html

Medical Grade vs Industrial DMSO
Posted by Anne (Washington) on 12/11/2013
5 out of 5 stars

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.!!!

Plantar Fasciitis

DMSO for Plantar Fasciitis

I used DMSO on my friend's feet, with a thin layer of Castor Oil first, and then 3 drops of straight liquid DMSO, on each. He felt so much better after just 1 treatment! We are continuing this treatment. While doing a deep dive into how DMSO heals so efficiently, I found a study that said it heals by correcting the DNA back to what it's supposed to be doing, in whatever body part is sore. I order it from the DMSO store, online or it can be found at any good health food store in North America. Feel well, lovely Earthclinic community!


Chronic Allergies

I just wanted to state that I read a thread about some people in Australia taking a few drops of pure DMSO in a glass of purified water daily and decided to try it. I have pain from soft tissue damage from a few injuries and thought it might help. What I did not expect was that my cronic stuffy nasal passages from allergies would almost instantly clear! The first day it happened I did not attribute it to the DMSO but now after four straight days of being able to breathe fully within minutes of taking it; it is now clear there is no doubt. I have ordered the book recommended here and will see what else I can expect.

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. I tried various creams ointments and meds. After three days on DMSO...no out breaks now for over 2 months and counting!

Sinus Decongestant

I got a sore throat and applied iodine to my neck glands on the outside of my neck then for good measure I applied some DMSO to drive it in. I noticed to within minutes the mucus got thin and runny and greatly relieved the congestion. This is a great find for me as decongestant are meant to be very useful in Lipedema. I experienced DMSO as a powerful decongestant.

My warning is not about DMSO, which I use and recommend. My warning is about listening to Clark about leaving cats outside. Stop the witch hunt on cats and stay on subject. DMSO. Cats have nothing to do with DMSO. Totally not related. Cats are not parasite givers. USE DMSO, ignore Clark's advise about indoor cats... not related at all.


DMSO Application Tips
Posted by ORH (TEN MILE, TN) on 07/26/2021

KATZIE, ORH here and think you are on the right track about DMSO. I know you should wash your hands before because the solvent will take everything into your body. But I do not wash my hands afterwards because the residue will help your hand joints. I have read several books on DMSO, but something happens to your mind with age. I read my posts these days and wonder who that idiot is? He is me. That is the reason I have no ill will toward D when she flushs me. I needed flushed. Guess, I come and go. What is spooking me now is the illuminati. My research tells me that what we are going through now was planned hundreds of years ago. It has gone too far and now we are at the dog eat dog stage. We are now at good vs evil. That is usually what gets my posts flushed. No one wants to hear that. We all want to stay in lala land. ====ORH====

Can anyone assist me in how to use DSMO and Hydrogen peroxide together for cancer treatment. I would appreciate any assistance on how to use these two products together. How much of each/ what kind of method/when etc. Thanks so much

DMSO Side Effects
Posted by Man (Sojouring, America) on 04/02/2014

I have been looking for that one death that has been harped upon concerning DMSO and I think I have found it. Doctors kill in the neighbourhood of one hundred thousand people a year in the hospitals and with pharmaceuticals and man made toxins they call medicines and one (1) woman dies with DMSO in her blood and the DMSO is maligned? What a crock of baloney.


DMSO Side Effects
Posted by Nanowriter (Hotspot, Texas) on 02/13/2014

Justin, I think you delivered a huge shot of magnesium to your body. DMSO plus magnesium plus large amount of body coverage. It's possible the magnesium is causing the gas and diarrhea. For two weeks--seems like a long time--but it was probably a lot of magnesium! Nothing to worry about--it is pretty benign.


DMSO Side Effects
Posted by Martin (Norway) on 12/31/2020

Yep Chlorine Dioxide is bleach. Hydrogen Peroxide is industrial bleach, Hypochlorous Acid is industrial bleach, Ozon is industrial bleach. And yet all these industrial bleaches are being generated and used by the immune system to fight off pathogens 24/7. If it wasn't for industrial bleaches you would be dead.

Worn out immune systems can safely supplement with Chlorine Dioxide.

Keep some at hand and read up on how to use it. And leave wickedpedia alone ;)


Pain

In response to Rob from NJ who wrote: "Bad pain in hands and feet. Please help how to take DMSO and what's the protocol is internally and externally."

Longtime DMSO user here.

I personally use mine on sore body parts straight. First I put on a thin layer of castor oil (to protect the skin), then I use an eye dropper to measure, and so I know my starting dose. Eg. for my two crushed discs I started with 7 drops per side. Leave the area uncovered for 20 mins, then get dressed again.

How I take it internally:

I typically use only 1/4 tsp of it 1x day. It's a solvent so it wants into your tissues, fast! So it's disconcerting to start to drink it, swallow, but there's nothing left cause it was already absorbed in the back of your throat!

As time goes on DMSO will actually heal you! And you will need less and less. If you don't want to fuss with castor oil, you could dilute the DMSO with distilled water, to a level of 50/50, and apply it that way. I was telling a friend of my crushed disc protocol, that I started 3 yrs ago and gradually cycled down as I healed when I realized I hadn't put any on my back in 2 months! So remember, you're not treating, you'll actually be healing. Best of luck on your healing!


Staph, Split Skin, Wounds
Posted by Mel (Shuswap, B.C., Canada) on 08/03/2019

My dog was snoring extremely heavily and lethargic. He developed an open wound on a front leg that I helped heal but then he developed a sty on his eye.

I read on earth clinic that sties are a form of staph. I had some DMSO (sulfur) so I started treating his wound with it mixed in an aloe gel with other herbs and I also sprinkled some DMSO drops on his food. I started a similar regime too because the skin on my right hand started to split everywhere and bled spontaneously. We both healed up beautifully in about a week's time.

I continue to keep us on oral DMSO as a maintenance/precautionary move to ward off anything else that might come our way. This is recommended by the supplier.

DMSO Side Effects

Better But With Side Effects

Hello everyone, my name is Justin. I just joined this forum today and I am very happy to be here. I am a 46 year old male.

I have some questions concerns aboat DMSO mixed with lemon juice. ever since first reading the book DMSO Natures Healer, and reading hundreds of personal testimonials I started to take 99.99% DMSO on and off over the years. I take it both topically and internally, making sure to dilute it down to 70% or less. I take it to try and relieve the aches and pains of life...surfing and rock climbing. As prevention to the calcification that comes with aging. I take it because I completely trust and believe in it's curative powers and health benefits.

Aboat two weeks ago I topically applied a mixture of DMSO 70% with fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh aloe Vera pulp, and magnesium chloride oil to my head, face, neck back, chest and stomach. Then the next day, I had severe shooting pains in my stomach in the large colon area. Excuse me for being so graphic...lots of diarrhea, gas and the need to go to defecate many times a day. But I have no acid reflux. And otherwise my body feels great. This has been going on now for the last two weeks. I am concerned because I have never had any stomach problems in the past. I have been a vegetarian for the last 25 years, feeling strong and healthy with lots of energy. my digestion has always been good and regular. I eat very well, try and keep well hydrated and most importantly try to feed my mind positivity, love and kindness.

My question is ...what is going on down inside of my guts? I spent the last year in south east Asia, and six months in India. But I had no health issues. I didn't get sick. I am thinking that it may be the result of adding the lemon juice. I say that only because I have never added lemon juice to the equation topically. I have in the past ingested DMSO with MMS and lemon juice and or citric acid but I have never applied it topically. And also I have in the past practically bathed my whole body in DMSO from head to foot, with no negative side effects. So I am thinking that maybe the combination is awaking and or battling parasites or worms that I wasn't even aware of having. maybe all this funkiness is my colon cleaning itself out. But I have done several colon cleanses over the years and experimented with all kinds of natural medicines and cures. I don't know. I can't help but be concerned that maybe it was not a good idea to put this combination directly over my belly. I am concerned that maybe the pure undigested lemon juice, is burning my colon.

I will be doing a "complete dry fast" no water, no food over the coming weekend. I am curious to see if it will help to resolve or at least alleviate my upset belly.

If anyone has any thoughts aboat this. Questions and or comments, I would really appreciate it.

I am a big advocate of DMSO and MMS ...as well as fresh squeezed lemon juice ....yummm. I drink it every day.

Again thanks to everyone. Thank you Ted. Thank you Earth Clinic

all my best to everyone......Justin

A friend sent me the book, The Persecuted Drug, The Story of DMSO. It was published in 1973 but is chilling how ruthless the FDA was then and now. How they punish people for the pure pleasure of it and protect the mamoth drug industry. I worked for Crown Zellerbach in the 60's and was aware of DMSO, but not like this book describes. It was made in their mill in Boguloosa, La. and I knew the supervisor of the plant. He said no employee that worked in that area had ever had a cold or the flu. All employees stole the product to give to old relatives who had arthritis and such. They all knew of it's benifits first hand.

Anyway, I encourage you to buy and read this old book. DMSO is a product that could revolulationize medicine if given a chance. You can use it on a million dollar horse, but it is against the law for you to receive its benifits. Why? It is too cheap and is not patentable.

I promise you that if you read this book and don't shed a few tears, then you are a hard person. The FDA is exposed with this story. They ruined a number of good dedicated doctors to prove that they are omnipotent.

As Dr Jacob says, horses don't know about plecabo's or double blind tests. It it works , they run, if not , then they don't run. Sounds right to me.

Please read the book.

Internal Use
Posted by ORH (TEN MILE , TN) on 06/29/2021

CINDY, ORH here, and I have no clue why I am even in this conversation? You are aware that DMSO is one of the most power solvents there is? It takes stuff to where you want it to go. I am worth about 50 cents, but a race horse is worth millions and the owner uses it on his buddy full time. So, being a Redneck, I figure it works on million dollar race horse, it might work on a two bit guy like me. You took my bait and sinker as I wanted. When I say dumb things then D does not publish. Other folks say dumb things, they are in print. Let me keep this civil for one time. What I know is that Dr Jacobs knew more about the properties of DMSO that anyone. Would you read his book? This site does not need to become a slug feat, but there needs to have some gives and takes. That is what is missing here. We know the smart folks on EC, but sometimes they are just blowing smoke. But nobody takes them on. You have taken me on about DMSO being a carrier . I use it with all my pain liniments and you say that's bull. How do we have a debate and draw a conclusion? You mention the lymph system. I have stumbled into a few things in that regard. I am in CHF and thought I was gone a few months ago. My heart is so weak that my lymph was not getting out of my body. I went to the folks that wrap your legs, etc. I had the professional stockings and was improving but lying flat in the bed, my lungs were filling with fluid and I was drowning. That is frighting and spooky. I know how the lymph system works. the legs flows to your center and your head flows to your center. So I bought a bed that you can raise your head and your feet.Guess what, I stopped drowning. Gravity still works. Lymph has no pump like the heart, so gravity, exercise and vibration keeps this fluid moving. I am an engineer, not a doctor. but this is an engineering problem. Upon awaking I take a professional vibrator and trace my lymph system by the numbers. I have lost 30 #and weigh every morning. I did not lose muscle, I lost lymph. My situation is such that I have 2 to 5 more years to live. I am tight with the Lord, but want to hang around as long as I can......jus cause. I would like to continue this debate but will not tolerate a smart mouth . ====ORH====

CRYSTAL,,,,,,,,, yep, DMSO is a miracle compound that I learned of first hand when I worked for CZ back in the 60's. At that time it was made in the CZ Bogalusa, La. paper mill. The Super was a friend of mine and related lots of stories about the employees that worked in that area. None ever had a cold or flu. Also, he related how DMSO cured steam burns to his wrists as you say in your post. Like the Good Book says, He has provided all you need.

General Feedback
Posted by Ray (Vendome, France) on 10/02/2014

I'm always surprised about people who overdo or overdose or overtake things, substances be it good or bad! Do you really have to take so many things. All natural doesn't mean all good or safe. DMSO can be dangerous if you don't study about it. It brings everything that touches into your blood stream. Many years ago an Irish woman who used DMSO died but also she was under other medication, because of this DMSO got a bad name in US. It's written cause unknown. I guess she was taking other medications and may be DMSO triggered and brought into her system more than she was supposed to. Please read carefully what you must be careful when you use DMSO. NOT only DMSO though, better not to take too many kinds of things other than health food and drinks. More doesn't mean better often less is better heal slowly. Your filtering system can only take that much to detox and throw out of your body, if you do too much in a short period of time, your liver, kidneys, colon and bladder can't throw out toxins as fast as you detox your system. You MUST give your filtering system time to work accordingly. You are abusing your organs by taking too many things which you believe that they are good for health. Being Extreme is a DANGEROUS ATTITUDE. Balance your mind first then think of physical health.


DMSO and Sterilization
Posted by Carolyn (Northwest, OH) on 01/13/2009

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.

Quite by accident I discovered that by adding a drop of peppermint essential oil to a cotton ball with DMSO on it I did not smell of rotten garlic! My husband with the super nose who could always tell when I was using DMSO never smelled it. I used it 3 times a day for a week and a half before telling him. It's amazing. No bad breath, no stinky skin. I wasn't using an expensive brand either. DMSO is too good to make us social outcasts while using it.
