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....

HI U D, ORH here, and your post on DMSO resonated with me as I have used it topically for most of my adult life. Today, I started taking it internally to augment my CDS program. Got this from the German Dr's website. It is supposed to be a catalyst to increase the effectiveness of the Chlorine Dioxide I take 30 minutes following the DMSO. No test, so I assume your state of health will indicate if this protocol is working or not.

I bought a box of cheap lab glassware to get back into the chemistry life of my past. The DMSO solution is made with 30 drops of 100% DMSO into a liter of distilled water. The drops depend on the size of your dropper so next time I will measure with a small graduated cylinder. One ml = 20 drops so I will measure out 1 1/2 ml instead of drops. DMSO is not dangerous, but it can easily pick up garbage from dirty glassware. Finally got my molasses from North Louisiana that I was reared on in the swamps of South Arkansas. So tonight my Tractor Driver is fixing pancakes topped by this molasses for supper. Been a long time.

Re: Soft tissue problems on my feet that I've had for 20 years:

Thanks all, I did manage to find some DMSO to buy and used it today for the 1st time I also made a cream or gel from using powdered magnesium from caplets some distilled water a few drops of h2o2 and some colloidal silver with a bit of coconut oil and gently heated in a stainless steel pot until I was able to blend them then put it into a glass.

This I used a few minutes after applying the DMSO I applied both with organic cotton balls washed off after 20 min and applied pure aloe gel.

Within 10-20 min I was able to jog on the spot for close to 10 min!! Something I have not been able to do in years!! Big thanks to earthclinic and all who post and share :D

I learned about DMSO from watching Tony Pantalleresco's YouTubes, one of which is about using DMSO and turpentine and salts in a bath. I had first used DMSO that I bought at the health food store 99.9% pure for $13 for 4 oz. The one at the feed store was 99.9% pure and $9 for 16 oz. So I bought that and have seen no ill effects. What is medicinal grade DMSO? How can it be more pure than 99.9%? So I guess the horse DMSO is medicinal grade. Does anyone know what is what with this issue? Am I missing something?

Also, I have not dared to take this internally but I guess a lot of you do. I will have to read more about it.

I have enjoyed reading so many of your posts. I also read that DMSO should not be used daily but some of you have used it daily, and internally, for decades. And there you are: alive!

Veterinary DMSO is pharmaceutical grade. What you MUST avoid is industrial grade primarily because of the trace solvents present.

Someone please tell me what I can use DMSO on if I bought 99.9 % pure, industrial strength, from Amazon, which they won't take back. Can I use it on my knees for arthritis pain? Or can I use it on my dogs paws which itch her at night? Or what else??? I can dilute it right? Please advise. Where do I get my answers???

Dear Glo,

I have 99.9% DMSO that I got at the farm store. I just dilute it for topical use. I believe that it is not recommended to use more than 70% DMSO topically. So, you could dilute 2/3 DMSO with 1/3 distilled water to get about 66%, which is close enough, I think. I have also diluted it half and half with castor oil, Colloidal Silver, Aloe Gel, and Mullein Root tincture, depending on what I am treating.

I have found it helpful and hope you do, too!

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?

Thanks.

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.

A friend of mine uses Cedarwood oil, Yucca Extract, then DMSO on his head & he has new growth.

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.


Herniated Disc Pain

I herniated a disc or two last summer when I was carrying my 75 lb golden retriever outside to go to the bathroom 4-5 times a day towards the end of her life. It eventually got better with aspirin and chiropractic sessions. I managed to inflame the area again after shoveling snow last week. What has been working phenomenally well for the pain, especially in the morning when the pain is most acute, is 2-3 droppers of undiluted pharmaceutical grade DMSO (99.99%) and a drop or two of peppermint oil. I mix the 2 together in my palm after washing my hands thoroughly. Then I rub it into my low back, all the way to the tailbone, where it has been hurting the most. About 10 minutes later, the pain is all but gone. The effect lasts a number of hours. I repeat this 3 times a day.

Also tried DMSO and magnesium oil with the same effects.

People often remark that they have to dilute their 99.99% DMSO but I have found I don't need to. It stings for a few minutes but goes away. I am also applying the DMSO with Magnesium Oil on the upper part of my body (neck, chest and face) without dilution. NO ISSUES!

This is the first time I have been experimenting with DMSO for a number of days. Even trying it internally here and there. I definitely noticed a garlic smell the first day, but that stopped after I started to add peppermint oil after reading a post on Earth Clinic about how peppermint oil can stop the clam/garlic odor from DMSO.

There are a lot of scare tactics on the internet about DMSO, but I'm finding it to be incredibly helpful in alleviating severe pain fast.

If you take Virgin Coconut oil, herpiees and cold sore out breaks will be a thing of the past. the DMSO is good but rather than trying to prevent one coming on...the VCO will stop it all together and drop all viral loads to extremely low levels. Also the "BUDWIG DIET" with Flax or HEMP oil also has similar results.

Wow I've heard of DMSO more than a year ago but never actually used it. Anyone who suffers from years of cold sores needs to know about the High L-Lysine and Low L-Arginine diet. It is this high ratio that keeps viruses dormant. Stress depeletes l-lysine and so does sugar, exercise and sex and ongoing insufficient sleep which also reduces other stress coping chemistry. Think how many times outbreaks occur in conjunction with these events in your life.

It hs basically come down to my finding only 3 really high L-lysine low L-arginine foods.
PLAIN WHITE YOGURT (goats cuz cows are too polluted)
Quinoa (also Gluten Free and complete protein)
Figs wow what a super food, eat freah and dried year round

Any time I still feeling a tingle I go for the yogurt and it stops and dies very quickly. I only found Quinoa 2 years ago and figs last year. I have wanted to give up dairy for years and can't because I need the L-lysine basically to survive without sores.

NOW I am actually gonna go across the street and pick up a bottle on my way to the kitchen and stop eating yogurt for as long as possible ;^)

Thanks, I'll let you know how it goes. Blue Monkey

Arginine and almonds will make my herpes break out. Arginine was promoted for adding strength and muscle size while working out, gets a big promo from the body building world and it works BUT IF YOU HAVE HERPES IT'S LIKE PUTTING GAS ON A FIRE. If you just have to have arginine, take Lysine. Lysine is good for putting a dampener on viruses like herpes etc.

Hi there I just have to say that I have battled cold sore for my entire life since I was a very small child. These are embarassing and very sore. I found out about DMSO and purchased some. I put it on my lip as soon as I feel that tingling feeling that comes prior to an outbreak. Since using this product the cold sore does not become visable. I am thankful and recommend others who suffer to give it a try.

I had a cold sore yesterday with a blister. It had started in the morning but I didn't notice it till I got to work. I decided to try dmso on it since I had some on my desk. (I ordered it a few weeks ago since I had read that you could use internally which I have yet to figure out what the protocal of that might be) I dabbed it on about 5 times throughout the day. I definetely felt that something was happening but the blister itself remained. About 7pm last night I accidently brushed the blister and it popped, without any pain. The blister was "dead". It is healing today. I HAVE NEVER EVER had a blister that was fully blistered heal so quickly. Once a blister has formed it usually means that you are in for the full program. ten days of a big patch of red gue by your lip and then scabbing and healing finally at the end.

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!

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?

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!

Hi Everyone

It is best to store DMSO in glass bottles because as a extremely good solved it can leach it or even dissolve some of the ingredients in the plastic. Having said that there are some plastics which can be used to store DMSO (some manufacturers use a plastic bottle not sure what plastic is used in these). More research needs to be done on the effects of DMSO on various disease processes the potentials are fantastic. I have used 1 to 2 teaspoons taken internally with great success the only side effect is a garlic type odour.

kind regards

There are different kinds of plastic, and I certainly wouldn't pour dmso into an el cheapo plastic bottle that wasn't at least food grade, but everyone should be aware that dmso is shipped from manufacturers in plastic bottles. I'm guessing they are high density plastic. I transfer mine to PET bottles, but obviously glass is good. Avoid metal caps.

There are people selling dmso online who charge more and make a big deal out of their glass bottles, without mentioning their dmso originally came in plastic. Rather misleading. They also claim it is a superior grade - but anyone can buy 99.9% purity at any livestock/feed store. It's the same stuff.

Also - I would hesitate to use a dmso product that was premixed with some other ingredient. You really don't need aloe or honey pulled through every cell in your body. Honey for one can be contaminated with pathogens - that's why we don't give it to newborns. Binding dmso to a potentially contaminated product and sending it past the blood brain barrier is just silly. If you are using dmso as a carrier agent for another ingredient, much better YOU control that ingredient and its purity.

All manufacturers use PP, Poly-propylene, #2 in recycling triangle, or HDPE, high-density polyethylene, #1 in recycling triangle, to ship DMSO.

I tried to measure off a little DMSO using kitchen type measuring spoon, and in a few seconds it took the shine off of the spoon. It also melts rubber, esp. Nitrile, which is popularly called "synthetic". Glass is probably best, but hard to find DMSO in glass, and it's expensive. People have used industrial grade DMSO, which is not clean at all, and they live. Except one ingredient which may be in it, which is deadly in larger amounts, or if used for a long time - acetone. I don't know if it can be smelled (smells like nail polish) in small percentege, but I wouldn't risk it. But I am not half-worried about plastic, if it's the right kind. I have a large syringe to measure bigger quantity, I put DMSO on it, and it rooled right off, as if the plastic is greasy, so it's unlikely to do anything.

Now I am drinking it, 2 teaspoons a day, you need grapefruit juice or tomato juice, it tastes awful, but it's harmless. I recommend a book "DMSO: Nature's healer" by Dr. Morton Walker, it explains everything about it. Clinics use it IV - Intra Veinus, orally, injections etc. , in combination, it's completely safe. But he warns to get familiar with possible side effects, they are not harmful but may be scary (for nothing, they go away)

Leaded crystal is very dangerous. If you put alcohol in it, lead will leach into the liquid. Therefore, I imagine the same would be true of DMSO. I put nothing in leaded crystal containers. It's not worth taking the chance of consuming lead.

Dear Stephen,

I have some DMSO gel. I mixed it with colloidal silver and put it into a glass bottle that had a glass eyedropper to it. This made it easy to get it out by the drop as needed. It helps to avoid the plastic issue. (Though my DMSO did come in a plastic container! )

I could have mixed it with distilled water, but was wanting to use it to deliver colloidal silver deeper into the body. The gel would have to be mixed with something I think, to be able to get it thin enough to come out of the eye dropper.

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?

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!!

I haven't, no. I don't use essential oils - aside from repeated attempts to replicate the fragrance of an AWESOME body spray I had 20+ years ago called "Grapefruit & Daisy" which I didn't discover was a "special edition" until half past "too late".

Do you diffuse with DMSO? I want to see what it might draw out of cayenne but haven't gotten around to that. Cayenne and castor oil seem to have some sort of electrical activity to them that I don't think survives the process of a tincture whereas cayenne doesn't seem at all affected as a tea, which is strange...with the amount of actual heat used to make tea...but I can't actually be sure of that. DMSO seems to have an electrical aspect to it as well but I don't think it's the same. Cayenne and castor oil seem alike but DMSO seems..."deeper" or...something like that. Even to the point of incompatibility with a lot of things. Like MMS, which seems to be on the other, high side of what seems like a scale and also not very compatible with much...I don't know...

Yes.

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.

I think the "electrical" thing is a matter of using two (or more) things together, if they're close to the same, they interfere with one another but if they're far enough apart, they can work - not TOGETHER but - in TANDEM. Where one does its thing and the other does its thing and they sort of end up cleaning up after one another. Like MMS and DMSO. They're very different but appear to sort of "support" one another. Whereas they don't seem to work well with "middle of the road" things. Perhaps, being "too close" to them, when it comes to their "electrical" properties. Or, perhaps, the...frequencies (?) of their "microcurrents". Which is something I've only recently discovered are actually recognized, scientifically.

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.

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====

ORH - just to be clear, as an explorer, I enjoy dialogue but I don't do "debate" which is why I failed to read past the first lines of either of your remarks. I merely skimmed them and didn't realize I'd offended you. I won't apologize because it wasn't my intention but I shan't bother you again. Best wishes.

I am 79yrs old, been around for awhile and I found this site not long ago and I have read many comments, am using some of there natural things that have been posted, perhaps people will try things that I have posted. Now the real reason I am replying to this posting is your DMSO comment and you feeling that EC should debate you, well that is not the business they are in, AFTERALL who are you? You should be so glad that the Staff here posted your comment, I never would have. I used DMSO over 55 yrs ago, big deal. Be thankful your comment was accepted, hoping you go after Big PHARMA now. I love this site!

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!

ORH, you can hang on and around as long as you desire. He gives us the desires of our heart. Now that is not to say you won't have a fight on your hands to make that real. I study body, mind, and spirit and lately the battle for me has gotten down to the last straw and I plan on winning. You might like some people I follow to engage the battle with supernatural strength . I am not that smart, just really stubborn and born a goat, induced me for a tax break on new years eve. I think the scapegoat. I been circling the wilderness with every ones sin on my back.

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.

Hi Cindy (Illinois) -

I felt a great comfort reading your experience about death - a very interesting awesome ride.

We all die eventually. Your description was natural and logical - after all, it is part of life. No judgement. Nothing to be afraid of.

Thank you, Cindy. I always enjoy your postings!

Take care,

Tessa

People don't talk about it but I've never had a problem with death since learning, upon my first experience with it, that everybody dies which meant, in my little girl mind, that since the best of the best and the most cowardly cowards that have ever lived all got through it, it can't be a bad thing so, we've been buds ever since and I spent a lot of time exploring the idea of it. Much to my mother's chagrin - and stark-raving fear for her fearless kid.

Strangely, men seem more susceptible to a fear of death. I suspect, due to a life of pumping testosterone, creating instances of not always "doing the right thing" and the judgement angle.

I'm glad to know that a woman took it as intended. It was interesting and a hoot but wasn't actually a "big deal". Which was sort of...I don't want to say "disappointing" but I would have thought it would have been more...exciting...I guess. Anyway...lol - I was young and an explorer and so...everything was exciting.

And, you're welcome.

Death and Life Experiences

I have heard many tell of how they went from earth, to Glory and back to earth stories.

And if you are not a resident within the gates of pearls or the gate of hell you have simply been given more time.

Almost every one that I have heard tell the story of the Light, and many tell of feeling liquid love around them, even those who did not believe in Love.

If you are back in your body there is more to the life and death story to experience.

My brother tell's of how in his young gang banging days, at about 16 years old he almost died. I know that he was almost beaten to death with a baseball bat. His friends called mother and said he was dead.

He told me of his tunnel and light experience. He repeats his story usually when a friend dies. Yet he knows he did not make the whole trip. And if anyone says they are in a better place, he asks how do you know have you been there?

I try to console him by saying, maybe the speaker is saying heaven is better than hell.

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.

Hello Everyone,

Some people have written books on their death and life experiences and were kind to leave a summary of their story on line. There are so many different stories, and some that are similar others.

Some stories are just as suspenseful as a TV show.

Here are two sites, Enjoy.

Internal Use
Posted by Tre (Memphis, Tn, Usa) on 12/05/2010

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?

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.

There is a book on DMSO by the same doctors who wrote one about MSM. I only read the MSM one but what I understood is that it is clear that you can use DMSO internally, I even think that it is usually used internally but that because of the odor you can better use MSM. One of the doctors has ran a DMSO clinic in the US for many years, maybe he still does..... If you go on Amazon you will find several books on both subjects.

PLEASE : Use food grade DMSO for all human use, buy the book (dmso nature's healer) there are all grades of dmso; horses, swimming, industry, be smart and read up on things before you do harm to yourself.

In spite of what the FDA says, ascorbic Acid is NOT vitamin C, it is merely a component of vitamin C.

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

http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/vitaminc/ascorbic-acid-is-not-vitamin-c/

"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:

A s c o r b I c A c I d

ascorbinogen
bioflavonoids
rutin

tyrosinase

Factor J
Factor K
Factor P

A s c o r b I c A c id

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

Prioris,

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.

Do you find a certain garlicky smell about your person? I've heard it can get pretty pungent? That's what keeps me away from it!
