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.

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.

HI U KATZI,,,,,,, ORH here and as you know our entire world history is a lie. We have been into games the entire time and that especially includes health. It really got bad with the Jekyll Island group. In the early 1900, they hid everything...... now they could care less who knows, because they control it all. Treating cancer as we did 70 years ago....... are you kidding me? Beats working the graveyard shift. Med-beds are coming and everything will change. EC will disappear because there will be no need for it . This knowledge has been here for quite awhile. Just no money to be made. ==== ORH====

Never ingested DMSO before but, I'm watching the Avengers with a little bit of a stuffy nose from dust of spring cleaning, just went to put a dropper full of cayenne extract under the tongue. HowEVER - big fight scene, not paying attention, picked up the DMSO instead. Full strength. Whole dropper full. Under the tongue. Should be interesting! ROFL!!

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.

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.

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

Herpes
Posted by Connie (Ny) on 05/10/2018

I read that Oil of Oregano can kill the herpes virus in about 3 months. It said to mix a few drops with a carrier oil such as olive oil and put a drop under the tongue three times a day and swallow. Also rub on the low spine three times a day. Herpes hides in the low spine and also has a barrier so its hard to kill the virus. I was wondering if you used DMSO with the oregano oil on the low spine if the DMSO could penetrate the barrier and kill it with the oregano oil?

Hi from lala land! ROFL!

I really think we reap what we sow so, I'm going to continue sowing and reaping awesomeness, interest, exploration and discovery.

SOMEbody's gotta do it! If only to prevent the whole thing from sinking into the pit. If more people did it, a lot more ground could be covered, but - people want to do what they want to do...plus, I'm weird so...

I don't think I'm in lala land so much as minding my own business. If people want to sow and reap hate and discontent and exploitation and horrors - it's fine with me because I reap what I sow - not what they sow!

Hi ORH –

Thank you for your reply. I feel oddly honoured 😊

I've learned a lot over the years from alternative sites like Earth Clinic, Mercola, etc. and will keep learning until I am no more .. .

For those who are wondering about the Joe Tippens protocol for cancer that ORH mentioned (he linked it before in another post), here is the link again.

Please read the entire thing – it's an education about life, not just cancer.

https://www.mycancerstory.rocks/

It seems that both Panacur (anti-parasitic used in the Tippens cancer protocol) and Ivermectin (anti-parasitic used as a Covid treatment) have much to offer us. Parasites are toxins too. We all have them.

Another toxin is mainstream “news” – just turn it off. It's relentless and it numbs your mind. Love yourself enough to think for yourself and do what is right for YOU.

One of our posters, Michael from New Zealand, mentioned the high number of youth suicides there since 2020. Suicide is a global health epidemic that is largely ignored.

I can't imagine anyone – especially young people – being constantly bombarded with fear messages and restrictions and not have it affect their mental health.

So, yes, ORH, we do need to control those pesky “tomato horn worms”!

Take care,

Tessa

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

The side effects I have experienced with DMSO are mostly non existent. Slight side affect is odor. Some people think the odor is sulfur and some call it onions or garlic. The value of the relief of DMSO is so great that the tiny little problem of the odor is so insignificant and superficial that it ought to be ignored. If odor truly a problem for the significant people like your husband or your wife then plan your DMSO therapy together like husband and wife. (The two are one flesh according to Scripture). Slight irritation at site of application that goes away after a little time is one other small side affect. It might help to look at the side effects of some of the Poisons err, Drugs that those doctors try to shove down your throat. Now those are "side effects" that I can't live with. But a little odor, a little irritation on the skin, I Can handle that.


Recommended DMSO Books

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.

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.

I mixed a dropper full in with a tablespoon of coconut oil. I'm putting it on 3 or 4 times a day. It made my side feel great and I am putting it on my face and every where. They say not to use plastic containers, so, I'm using 1/2 pint mason jar with a food grade plastic lid. I didn't think the metal lids would be a good idea. I'm new at using this too. Months ago I bought a roll on, and that did nothing for me even though I put it on several times a day. I prefer to add more DMSO if I need too. I have pain in my hands too. I'm hoping it will cure my joints.

ORH - I know you have your own ways so I won't say any more on that.

Re: death - been there, done that, didn't hurt, wasn't scary, no pitchforks and not alone. Zero trauma. Very interesting, awesome "ride". Not a tunnel but, rather, very fast travel along a perfectly straight trajectory. Like if you were in a rocket car, going rocket fast, the "air" (which is actually fluid) around the car would be quite solid if you were to try to stick your arm out the window and the straight line travel would make the target perfectly clear, in your sights, which provides the sense of "the light at the end of the tunnel" which seems singular but that's because you're moving straight toward it so it's not blurred or wobbly. It's a bit like "zooming in", as with a camera.

I didn't stick around - just sort of popped in, sensed the presence of others - mentally high-fived everybody and came back. Just a sort of "Hi! AWESOME ride! Gotta go! " sort of trip. All on my own ticket - totally by choice. Had I been more severely injured or unhealthy, I would have stayed. And I COULD have stayed, by simply choosing to.

And just to be clear - nobody who's ever known me would ever mistake me for an angel and there was no sense of..."judgement". Zero. Like with all things, I suspect one's experience is an extension of one's state of being, at the time, and as I'm an explorer, that's pretty much my state of being, 24/7 - interested in whatever has my attention which I reserve for things that interest me and which is always and only ever my call.

The light is like a big hug, high-five and celebration, all at the same time. Nothing to be afraid of.

GARY, ORH here, and again we have the blind leading the blind. My knowledge comes from Dr Jacob's books and he was the consultant to Crown Z, which did almost all of the R& D work. I worked for Crown Z in the '60s and with the supervisor of the CZ plant. Instead of speculating about DMSO, quote from Dr Jacob's books. Then, we are getting it straight from the horse's mouth. Besides, DMSO does not need anything to get into your body. You missed that a mile. You are right about bypassing your digestion system and the reason I use magnesium transdermally. I don't need an upset stomach.

Let's not forget that distilled water should be used 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.

Bone Spur

I've been suffering with a very large bone spur under my Achilles tendon on my heel. Every step feels like a knife stabbing me. I read about DMSO and bones spurs and decided to buy some. I got the gel 70% mixed with aloe vera. I've been putting it on for 2 days and I cannot believe the difference! I am thrilled! The only thing that bothers me is that when I put it on my heel, I have a tightness in my chest that I don't normally have. I take thyroid meds and am wondering if it is increasing the absorption. I also take several BP meds and I don't think it's bothered those. Has anyone else felt it has affected them in this way? And, should I dilute it with distilled water or what. I think this is really really effective and would like to continue using it but don't want to mess myself up.

How to Store DMSO
Posted by Deirdre (Atlanta, Ga) on 02/11/2010
5 out of 5 stars

Warning

My good friend's boyfriend is a professor in sleep research at a university in California. When I was visiting them a few weeks ago, I asked if he used dmso in the lab and if so, how did he store it? He told me that they use dmso in many, many experiments and that they always store it in glass bottles. When I told him that I had recently put some of my dmso in a small, cosmetic plastic spray bottle to use with grapefruit seed extract for nail fungus, he looked concerned and suggested that I only store dmso in glass.

Ah, good thing I had that discussion. When I got home from the trip, I smelled the little plastic spray bottle that I had been using the previous 2 weeks. It reaked of chemicals! Yikes!! I compared the smell to the dmso in the thick white plastic bottle that I bought from an online vet supply store, which looks just like the one in Ted's photo. Thankfully the big bottle had a typical dmso odor - a faint scent of garlic. Needless to say, I immediately threw out my spray bottle. Until I find a glass beaker or bottle from a science supply store, I am using a glass dropper for the dmso.

Be warned, be warned!

Migraines

DMSO and H2O2 for Migraines:

My boyfriend gets constant and debilitating migraine headaches for the past several years (about once or twice a week)... it is what first brought me to Earthclinic many months ago when I started researching. He has ever since been by guinea pig!! I think that there's a lot of it to do with nutritional deficiencies (which I am still figuring out...) but I FINALLY came up with something that works QUICK in the meantime until I figure out the root cause this treats the symptoms.

I was reading about DMSO and how it could theoretically be used to treat a stroke in an emergency, and I was thinking that headaches have similar problems of lack of oxygen to the brain...

so when he came over this morning w a terrible headache that had lasted all night and not been relieved by Amerge or Flova prescription migraine pills...

I mixed him a cocktail of organic "Monster C" juice, about 1 cup (8 oz.) with about 1/8 teaspoon of DMSO and added a few drops of food grade 35% hydrogen peroxide. He drank this.

We then applied an icepack to his forehead and within 20 minutes, the headache that had lasted for about 8 hours went away completely!

So happy! Hopes this remedy helps someone else.

Nothing much happened from a dropperful dose of straight DMSO under the tongue! A bit of extra urination but that's it. Talk about an anti-climax. Could be because I often use it externally - I put it on EVERYthing, from my feet to my scalp - so I often have it on my hands and whatnot but...I don't know what I expected - something cool - like x-ray vision or the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound!!

Here is a somewhat spooky but interesting death and life experience as testified by one man.

He said he was angry with his wife because she had smacked him. In his anger, and while driving, he was devising a way to get back at his wife. The next thing he knew his car crashed. He came out of his body. He noticed there was a man on his left and right. He asked, "Who are you?"
They introduced themselves, " I am Goodness, the other man said, I am Mercy., "
He said they took him and gave him a tour of heaven. Then they took him and showed him hell.
After he viewed it, they were about to cast him in it. He said, "Wait a minute I'm a preacher! " He said they replied, but you have not forgiven your wife.

Long story short, he was given another chance to forgive. When he was restored to his body his wife and church family were still praying for him.

Thank God for his Goodness and Mercy.

Tumors return because they're still in the bloodstream. Dr. Christopher (master herbalist) says. He has a 'blood stream' formula that cleans the bloodstream and a formula that cleans out the bowel too- so that all the c.a.n.c.e.r cells can be eliminated out. Type in herbal legacy Dr. christopher tumors.You'll see what he says there. Hope this helps- it's VITAL information.

Hi Mystic Sage, I first used DMSO back in the 70's as a ballet dancer. My teacher/ mentor who was one of the great American ballerinas had used it throughout her career and familiarized me with it. Back then it was not used by humans (at least not the general public, dancers were using it. ) but she knew of it from the horse world in Saratoga Springs, NY of which they had been using it on race horses for a long time successfully. I continue to use it today in roll- on form. Once applied you do not need to rub it in but do let it dry before getting dressed. It is a powerful conductor so be careful what you are applying with it because it will drive it into the body.

As for MSM, I was introduced to it 16 years ago by my dad. He would always see me in pain from all my teaching and brought it to me in powder form although he had capsules as well. I was skeptical but tried it and my pain disappeared overnight! I was sold! Back then, my dad would add the powder to lotion to use topically since it was not available in creams at that time. Virtually no one knew of it and because I became such a believer in it, I would drive a distance to buy it from the distributor in boxes so I could get a bulk discount. I would give it to dancers and friends who had physical pain. To this day, I recommend it to all my students if they become really sore or if they feel they've injured a body part. I like to use it in powder form best since it goes directly into your system. Capsules are good for convenience but I personally don't think they're as potent. I use Omica which is completely plant- derived and non- petroleum derived. That company offers superior products of all that they carry. The first MSM I used all that time ago was OptiMSM. I always had great results with that as well.

As for DMSO orally, well since I use MSM orally I don't use DMSO that way. You can safely use them together. I have often. Also, there is plenty of information available on the internet on both of these so you really don't need to buy a book. As for the amount of MSM, I base it on my pain factor. Of course, I think it's always best to start low and build up if you aren't getting the results you wanted. I use a pretty healthy tablespoon, sometimes more, in a glass of water but then again, I'm used to these things...

I hope I have answered your questions. Best to you, Lisa

Uh yea, Hulda Clark would have us all living in pressurized, sterilized, hermetically sealed space bubbles. I read Cure for All Diseases. At first I was enthused and it sounded kind of right. But the further along I read the more I realized Dr. Clark had developed some kind of obsessive/compulsive disorder bordering on total paranoia. What kind of life would one live if they followed all of Clark's directives? There is such a thing as too clean. We do have immune systems. I love cats.


Pulled Muscles

At the end of January, my husband and I were working on a big digging project, doing most of it by hand. While lifting one shovelful of dirt, I felt a "pop" in my neck/shoulder area. It didn't hurt immediately, so I (foolishly) kept on working. A week later found me in the after-hours clinic at my local Dr. 's office. The doctor on call told me to take up to 3 ibuprofen 2x/day. I laughed at him. So he prescribed neurontin. Thus started a 6 week journey through nerve/muscle pain, severe cramps, and rolling muscle spasms. Over the course of time I've taken neurontin (nerve pain), NSAIDS (general muscle agony and inflammation), and finally my own Dr. prescribed Valium (to ease the rolling charley horses from my shoulder to the back of my hand). My Dr. knows that I hate drugs, and the only reason she gave me valium is because I was also visiting a chiropractor and a deep muscle massage therapist.

Finally, I realized that I had to take care of my own self. I've lightly used DMSO in the past, mainly for treating a toenail fungus. This time I got serious.

I made a special trip to the health food store for a bottle of DMSO, dried comfrey leaves and powdered root, some magnesium, kava kava, and a container of MSM lotion.

I poured some of the DMSO into a separate glass container and filled the original up with leaves and root and let it sit for a couple of hours. I didn't measure anything, just eyeballed the entire conglomeration. I wandered to my husband's office, and 'borrowed' a ceramic coffee cup.

Using an unbleached coffee strainer, I poured the mixture into the cup in an attempt to strain it. What a mucilaginous mess.

The next morning I used the resultant slime (for that's what it truly resembled) and rubbed it into my left arm from neck, through the armpit, across the back, and to my fingertips. I smelled STRONGLY of garlic, even more so than when using just plain DMSO. I either got used to it, or it faded away.

Anyway, I thinned the slime with a bit more DMSO, and placed it in a glass dropper bottle to carry with me. I use it several times daily, especially upon rising and before bed. Sometimes I use the MSM lotion first, let it soak in, and then follow with the DMSO/comfrey mixture. Yes, I realize the closeness of MSM and DMSO, but honestly, the lotion has made a big difference in the softness of my skin.

Kava kava is a muscle relaxant that replaced the valium. I used that in conjunction with the magnesium citrate to relax my muscles and get some much-needed sleep.

After 6 days, my chiropractor was fairly amazed at the looseness of my shoulder/neck/arm muscles. My spine was fairly well aligned, signifying that the muscles were no longer tensing and pulling my vertebrae out of alignment. I still have some nerve issues, especially around the elbow, but it has improved more within the last few days than I would have thought possible. No more valium, neurontin, and quite a bit less of the NSAIDs.

So...long story short:

  • Kava kava magnesium to relax muscles (taken before bed)
  • DMSO to use as a carrier for allatoin (comfrey leaves/roots) to heal muscle/tendon injuries applied several times/day
  • MSM lotion for when I don't want to smell like a garlic patch.

Hopefully, this will help someone. Thank you EarthClinic, for your storehouse of knowledge.

Bill, Very good post about Vitamin C not being ascorbic acid. I take a Vitamin C with Rose Hips. I look at the rose hips as being the most important part. I have tended to take Vitamin C for granted without thinking about it. It is a reminder to be more discriminating when buying Vitamin C in supplement form. I know you get your nutrients from whole foods so less likely to be a problem. For people who buy supplement, this is important to know

"OK, natural vs. synthetic. Let's start with Vitamin C. Most sources equate vitamin C with ascorbic acid, as though they were the same thing. They're not. Ascorbic acid is an isolate, a fraction, a distillate of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components as shown in the figure below:

Factor J
Factor K
Factor P

V I T A M I N C

In addition, mineral co-factors must be available in proper amounts.

If any of these parts are missing, there is no vitamin C, no vitamin activity. When some of them are present, the body will draw on its own stores to make up the differences, so that the whole vitamin may be present. Only then will vitamin activity take place, provided that all other conditions and co-factors are present."

To drive home the point even further

"Ascorbic acid simply cannot confer vitamin activity, as taught by the discoverer of vitamin C himself, another Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Albert Szent-Georgi.

Szent-Georgi discovered vitamin C in 1937. In all his research however, Szent-Georgi found that he could never cure scurvy with the isolated ascorbic acid itself. Realizing that he could always cure scurvy with the "impure" vitamin C found in simple foods"

So one should focus on Vitamin C COMPLEX as opposed to Vitamin C

I found a sustained release brand which contains

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 1000 mg 1,667%

Bioflavonoids (from Citrus limon exocarp) (supplying active flavonones, 24% [120 mg] and active flavonols and flavones, 20% [100 mg]) 500 mg

Rutin (from Sophora japonica leaf) 100 mg

Hesperidin (from Citrus limon exocarp) 100 mg

Rose Hips (Rosa canina fruit) 100 mg

Acerola (Malpighia glabra fruit) 50 mg


Herpes

I also use DMSO successfully for herpes. If an outbreak starts I put DMSO in the base of the spine and also on the sores themselves. Another great discovery I made recently is that my iron stores get low and this is why I am prone to getting outbreaks. The virus and my immune system compete for iron!

DMSO thins the blood, naturally. Way better than warfarin or coumadin. There are books on it by Naturopathic doctors and such, attesting to its healing qualities. Here is my experience:

Had a hard fall mostly on my shin, it hurt but I got up by myself and walked away as I had errands to do. Got home 2 hrs later, noticed my leg didn't hurt anymore and was surprised to see it had swollen to 1.5x its size! I did icepacks, elevation & acv/epsom salt soaks. I also applied DMSO 4x a day.

About a week later I was on a flight sitting beside a doctor, still swollen. He thought it could be DVT related and told me to see a Dr. Not wanting to take warfarin or coumadin, I stepped up the DMSO (rubbed on leg only) to every 2 hrs, and arranged to drink 3 or 4 750ml bottles of water one afternoon/night, and the next day my leg was back to almost-normal.

I have a good lymph system, I've been told. I wanted to open the dam sluices and get that excess water out! I peed alot that night. Only I could tell there was still a little swelling left at the ankle, which was gone soon after. I boarded my next flight the next day with no problem with my leg.

I haven't seen DMSO mentioned as a blood thinner, so I wanted to mention it is worth asking a Naturopath about and looking into on your own.

Best of Healing, everyone.
