What is DMSO? It is a natural chemical compound derived from pine trees as a byproduct from the manufacturing of paper. It is composed of two methyl groups (CH3) and a sulfur and an oxygen atom.
It is also found naturally in garlic as one of garlic’s 70+ sulfur compounds.
DMSO builds up the white blood cells and increases immune production of migration inhibitory factors (MIF) by macrophages.
DMSO has been associated with a number of therapeutic benefits, such as for the healing of wounds; its use as an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal; softens collagen, helps eliminate hydroxyl free radicals in the body, stimulates the immune system, increases interferon formation, reduces the number of platelet thrombi, and is a potent diuretic. DMSO skin remedies are useful in treating topical fungal infections.
DMSO, or dimethyl sulfoxide, has been used for many years by athletes to treat painful muscles and joints
DMSO has been described by Dr. Jacob as a new medical principle.
Why is organic sulphur so important?
Sulphur: The Stuff of Life
Every living cell, plant or animal, contains sulphur. Given that the human body is a collection of trillions and trillions of cells, if we want to have a happy body – we first have to have happy cells.
Since organic sulphur plays an essential role in the oxygenation and detoxification of all living things…..you could say without fear of contradiction, that it is the key to life
Why is DMSO so effective?
Sulfur compounds are found in all body cells and are indispensable. They are needed for a number of chemical reactions involved in the detoxification of the body. As a source of sulfur, DMSO aids in heavy metal detoxification. Sulfur binds with toxic heavy metals (mercury, lead, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, nickel) and eliminates them via urination, defecation and sweating. DMSO protects the cells from mechanical damage and considerably less amounts of it is needed to achieve results compared to many other pharmaceutical drugs. This is a crucial mechanism since some molecules in our bodies produce an unequal number of electrons and the instability of the number causes them to destroy other cells. DMSO hooks on to those molecules and they are then expelled from the body. DMSO is an effective pain killer, blocking nerve conduction ﬁbers that produce pain and reduces inﬂammation and swelling by eliminating inﬂammatory chemicals.
It also has a calming effect on the central nervous system and it reaches all areas of the body, when absorbed through the skin, including the brain.
What is Methylsulfonylmethane ?
Methylsulfonylmethane, commonly called MSM, is a product that is derived from DMSO. MSM has many of the properties of DMSO, but is generally regarded as a food supplement. It has not been subject to the medical studies of DMSO and is not considered to be as effective as DMSO in treating most ailments. However, it also does not cause the patient to have the garlic-like
What is DMSO ?
DMSO is one of the most powerful free radical scavengers known. Free radicals are unstable charged molecular fragments that attack other molecules causing severe damage to cells throughout the body. This disrupts the normal functioning of various organs in the body. Free radical damage is usually slow and accumulates over the years. Eventually this can lead to such ailments as cancer and arthritis. It can also lead to premature aging. It is possible that the
regular use of DMSO may completely prevent some serious ailments.
Another important action of DMSO is its immune normalizing effect. This makes DMSO important in the treatment of autoimmune diseases and can also help the natural immune system fight off various infectious and contagious diseases.
DMSO also passes through the skin and other cellular membranes of the body.
This is the reason that the application of a small amount of DMSO applied topically to the skin can cause a garlic like breath odor. DMSO is one of the the products that are able to cross the blood brain barrier. It is also able to take other products that normally do not cross this barrier with it. This could make DMSO valuable in the treatment of many brain problems.
Another important action of DMSO is it is a vasodilator. This can increase blood flow, allowing blood to more easily reach areas where damage may have occurred. Often an injury causes decreased blood flow to the injury site, and some of the damage is caused by the lack of blood to the area after the injury, and not just the injury itself.
In many cases DMSO is used to treat one problem, and it ends up helping a completely unrelated health problem.
Benefits of DMSO (Organic Sulphur)
DMSO can help with a number of different issues and conditions. This includes all of the following:
- DMSO for Pain
DMSO is known to address a variety of types of pain. Strains and sprains are one type of pain that DMSO can address. When used topically, DMSO can eliminate the pain of these types of injuries. DMSO will pass through the skin’s oily membranes and reduce swelling and inflammation in the area. DMSO can also be effective for pain related to bruises, burns, scars, and keloids. A concentration of 50 to 80 percent DMSO put on two to three times per day can flatten a raised scar and eliminate burns and bruising.
Carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most commonly reported repetitive strain injury in the workplace. It is caused by compression of the median nerve which results in neuropathy of the nerve. The median nerve is the nerve in the wrist that supplies feelings and movement to parts of the hand. The compression of the median nerve can lead to numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle damage to the hands and fingers. Long term carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to permanent nerve damage and atrophy of some of the muscles in the hands and fingers.
The conventional treatment has been night splints and cortisone injections. Various anti-inflammatory drugs have also been used. When all else failed, Surgery was used to cut the transverse carpal ligament. Surgery has resulted in mixed results. Some patients have found that surgery actually made the condition worse.
Some patients who tried various drugs and even surgery have reported dramatic results with the use of DMSO. Others have reported similar results with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane),
DMSO for Burns. Skin lotions containing DMSO have proven effective in treating burns.
Diabetes. and DMSO
DMSO has shown great potential in treating diabetic neuropathy. This is often a major problem in older people who have suffered from diabetes for many years. DMSO improves the blood supply by dilating the small blood vessels thereby increasing circulation to the extremities. DMSO should be part of the normal medical treatment of every diabetic. The treatment should not wait until there is a major circulation problem where amputation is considered. Prevention of the problem should be the goal. It is probable that most diabetic related amputations could be prevented with routine DMSO treatment for all diabetics
- Cancer side-effects (pain)
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Headaches and migraines
- Interstitial cystitis
- Autoimmune disorders
- Muscle spasms
- And more!
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is currently used as an alternative treatment for various inflammatory conditions as well as for cancer. In this study (Elisia et al. 2016) was demonstrated that DMSO has ex-vivo anti-inflammatory activity using Escherichia coli(E. coli) and herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1)-stimulated whole human blood. Specifically, we found that between 0.5%– 2%, DMSO significantly suppressed the expression of many pro-inflammatory cytokines/chemokines and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2).
In this study, was demonstrated that both DMSO and DMS represent strong anti- inflammatory properties by blocking constitutive as well as IL-1β-induced IL-6 and IL-8 expression in the human chondrocyte cell line C-28/I2
How to use DMSO:
DMSO is generally applied to the skin in a gel, cream, or a liquid. It can be taken orally but this should only be for more severe internal detoxification. We recommend to order click here DMSO available in both liquid and gel form.
DMSO is a carrier and it opens cell membranes.
In short – it will enhance the performance of any medication or natural therapeutics (e.g. Nutritional supplements, herbal remedies etc) you currently take.
This is not a down side if your goal is to reduce or stop any dependency on drugs, but it is something you (and your health professional) should be aware of and understand before embarking on its use.
It may be especially important to monitor blood sugar levels, liver/kidney function or hormone levels (e.g thyroxin) more frequently if you have any pre-known conditions.
People taking blood thinners should not use DMSO.
Allergic reactions are rare. Introduce DMSO with a skin test on a small portion of skin to make sure it’s safe for you to use.
DMSO also causes a garlic-like taste in the mouth – this is quickly remedied by brushing your teeth after use.
