Someone posted this in an Amazon review but I am having difficulty finding out much more about it and haven't tried it. Is it referring to 35% H2O2?

1 oz food-grade hydrogen peroxide, 7 oz organic, whole-leaf aloe vera gel, 1 oz DMSO mixed together in a spray bottle and applied topically after showering

Does anyone have any more info about DMSO causing sterilization??!! I just bought some to try on a hamstring pull that is taking a long time to heal- but am worried about this potential side effect and can't find any more info on it. ALso- is DMSO ever taken internally? if so..how?

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.

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.

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.

I would NOT use a q-tip or cotton to apply DMSO as most cotton (if not organic) is loaded with pesticides!

Because DMSO carries substances into your skin you have to be careful about what you apply it with. I would never use a plastic roller as I do not want the chemicals from the plastic in my system. I also would not use my hands to apply it because if there is any DMSO left on your hands even after washing, then everything you handle with your hands all day long will be absorbed as well. I use a small glass bottle or jar to apply it! I just put a small amount on the outside of the jar and use the jar to rub it into my skin. Then I wash the outside of the jar with a pure soap and water and reuse it for next time. I am trying to think of something better that is made of glass such as a glass pestle or something.

Jam,

Thanks so much for the reply about what to use to apply the DMSO. I hadn't thought about the cotton having pesticides, interesting, and you're right!

Now using a small glass jar is quite a unique idea. I'm thinking that the glass jar would probably have to be kind of small, so one could have more control of it when applying the gel to the skin? The idea of a glass pestle is great. I'm going to look for one next time I'm in a store that has higher end kitchen acoutrements, I know I've seen these somewhere. I was thinking of a glass stir, like one of those to stir up a drink.

Thanks great ideas!

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

Let's not forget that distilled water should be use with DMSO as regular tap water even filtered contains fluoride, chlorine, chloramine and inorganic minerals that your body accumulates over time. Putting vitamin C in the water neutralizes the chlorine and chloramine, something to keep in mind when taking a bath with DMSO. Also essential oils can be mixed with DMSO.

I have used DMSO 99.9% pure once using my fingertips and found that it "dehydrated" them, which lasted all night. I would recommend using another method if not diluting it.

@Judy,

Dr Stanley Jacobs stated that DMSO is such an effective solvent that its action is similar to an injection! I would just use a carrier oil like jojoba or Castor and then apply. This also protects your hands from any dryness. Good luck.

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.

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.

Hi Dee...I think that it is perhaps a little misleading to say that DMSO will carry 'anything' through the skin.

Here is comment from Dr Stanley Jacob who has been researching with DMSO since the 1960s. He is the guru on DMSO use:

"Rumors of DMSO's ability to transport chemicals through the skin have been greatly exaggerated. DMSO will carry a minimal amount of other chemicals with a molecular weight of less than 1000 but will not carry bacteria or viruses."

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.

I don't get how do you use the cotton ball to avoid the smell, in fact I am still researching and haven't used DMSO yet (nor have I found it in Mexico City), but it sounds great for several ailments in my family, so I'm interested in this tip to avoid the smell. Thanks

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.

Whenever using DMSO I always mix it with Rhus Tox ointment (available through any Homeopathic Lab or retail source) to protect against skin reactions which are common with DMSO and which were the excuse used by the Feds to not approve DMSO for human use. This has worked with many dozens of persons and hundreds of applications.

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.

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.

Basically he made one major error here when he writes,

DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic) and whatever area on the body it touches should be extremely clean.

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.

Please be advised that DMSO is highly absorbed into the bloodstream and has a high risk of causing sterilization in humans. Although I highly recommended pain and swelling reliever one should use great caution when applying it to an animal by wearing gloves or know for a fact you are done having children before using it on yourself. I have used the product for many many years on horses and never apply it without gloves on.
