What is DMSO?
DMSO – Dimethyl sulfoxide is a natural compound that is a byproduct of the lumber industry, which suppliea this product to the pharmaceutical industry for use in veterinary care and human use for the treatment of muscle sprains and various other sports related injuries. DMSO promotes healing by increasing the blood supply to the area of the injury and reducing swelling and pain.
Over the past forty years, more than 10,000 articles on the biologic implications of DMSO have appeared in the scientific literature and 30,000 articles on the chemistry of DMSO have also been published. The results of these studies strongly support the view that DMSO is a truly significant therapeutic anti-inflammatory and analgesic compound that holds promise in managing a wide range of debilitating health conditions.
DMSO is already an approved pharmacological agent in more than 125 countries for a variety of applications, but in the US it has only been approved by the FDA for the treatment of interstitial cystitis, which is inflammation of the bladder. Unfortunately, the vast health-promoting abilities of DMSO has gone unfulfilled to the America public because it is being suppressed by a combination of bureaucratic ineptitude and pharmaceutical industry lobbying. Because DMSO is cheap and natural, pharmaceutical companies would be unable to patent it therefore no monetary gain would be had in promoting it.
A vast majority of species in the animal kingdom are able to synthesize their own vitamin C. For example, a dog will synthesize approximately 18mg of vitamin C for every pound of body weight, thus allowing a 50-lb. dog to produce about 900 mg per day during normal healthy function. Additionally an adult goat weighing 70 kg (or 154 lbs) will synthesize more than 13,000 mg of vitamin C per day in normal health. This natural biosynthesis of vitamin C will increase in production when the animal is sick, injured, or under stress. For example, if you put that goat under stress he will manufacture 15,000 mg per day.
The ability to synthesize vitamin C is lacking in humans, some primates, bats, and Guinea pigs because they lack the gene responsible for manufacturing vitamin C, therefore it must be introduced through the diet. The Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin C for an adult is only 60 to 95 mg per day, and as you can see for yourself is grossly inadequate compared to the two examples above. This amount may be enough to ward off the development of scurvy, but it is certainly not enough to promote the good health of an individual or to heal from a serious illness.
Vitamin C is responsible for wound healing and immune system function. Your body, just like that of any other creature, will require even more vitamin C when YOU are sick, injured or under stress. Vitamin C is destroyed when food is cooked, so eating plenty of raw foods high in vitamin C is essential. Also, vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning it is not stored in the body although it is utilized continuously throughout the day by the body.
This protocol combines the health benefits of vitamin C with DMSO to work at the cellular level.
Stacy’s testimonial of using the DMSO and Vitamin C protocol for cancer and for pain relief
Stacy Kneeshaw Jett shared her experience using DMSO and vitamin C as part of her protocol for cancer and to relieve pain. She says: “In the book “Politics in Healing: The Suppression and Manipulation of American Medicine” by Daniel Haley, he writes about a young boy who had terminal cancer. His mother was told by many doctors that: “There’s nothing we can do, take your son home and just make him comfortable” but she would not give up. She took her son to an herbalist and he told her to give her son 7 drops of DMSO mixed in 1/2 cup of Distilled water and 1/2 tsp of Sodium Ascorbate (which is a buffered form of vitamin C), and to drink this mixture 2 times a day. She did this and her son got better and survived his cancer.
I decided to research DMSO further. It is a solvent that is extracted from the bark of a tree and is used as a carrier to deliver various compounds into our cells. If you put it on your skin- it will take everything that is on your skin into your system. I called the author of the book, Mr. Haley, and spoke with him about this and decided to use the DMSO & Vitamin C method as one of my Cancer Healing Protocols and I do feel this provided great benefit to me. The two things I noticed was a complete relief of pain from a non-cancer related sciatica that I had for 13 years- it just went away in a few days and has never come back. I also benefited from a feeling of well-being. Nothing that created a drugged type of feeling, but rather a very subtle feeling that all was right with the world. This is very helpful when you are dealing with cancer- as nothing seems to feel right with the world if you are having pain or anxiety. DMSO helped with both. I used a DMSO solution that was 99.9% Pure, Pharmaceutical grade. DMSO is used as a prescription medication for bladder inflammation. The FDA-approved use of DMSO is for interstitial cystitis in people. It is also approved for other uses in other countries, so if the conventional doctors tell you “That stuff will kill you” as I was told, it doesn’t make sense. DMSO is also approved as an anti-inflammatory treatment for horses with muscle strains, broken bones and inflammation. The horse racing industry is also a big industry, and if the horses can’t run- well, there go the profits. So I always follow the money for an explanation and for my answers as to why wouldn’t my doctors tell me about thi$?
I started with the 7 drops of DMSO mixed in a 1/2 cup of distilled water and 1/2 tsp of Natural Vitamin C Powder so as not to create any toxicity (except to the cancer cells). I am always leery to use manufactured supplements/vitamins as these can be synthetic or the wrong type- and more often than not- they do not include the natural bio-flavanoids as you find in nature. The dose that I read about was for a young boy, so after a few days of using this mixture, 2 times a day and not dying, I decided to increase the dosage. I started with adding a few more drops. Eventually, I was adding 1/2 cap full of the DMSO for each dosage. I used anywhere from 1/2 tsp to 1 tablespoon of the vitamin C. The only negative side effect was a sweet garlic smell, so because of this, I took the mixture right before bed and also tried to use the 2nd dose when I didn’t think I would have to be socializing. But honestly, I knew this would be temporary and I wanted to get rid of my cancer- so smelling a little like garlic for a little while was okay. After 3 months of using the DMSO mixture (as well as my green/juicing/ organic/nutritional protocol), I went in for testing to see what my cancer status was. The last time that I saw my doctor he had just pointed out that the cancer “had metastasized to the lower ilium and that I must schedule immediate surgery!” The new scans came up completely clean. I have yet to go back to any doctor for any reason since. Read Stacy’s testimonial of healing from stage 3 malignant melanoma.
Other applications for DMSO
Using DMSO for topical pain: Stacy also writes that she used DMSO for topical pain relief by topically applying a combination of 70% fresh aloe vera gel (which she obtained from her plants) along with 30% DMSO which was then dabbed (not rubbed) onto the area. DMSO will irritate the skin if used full strength so this product must be cut with something pure such as Stacy did to prevent burns. Care must be taken with this product at all times.
Making a DMSO Salve for pain- can be made by mixing DMSO with Cold Pressed Castor Oil, black seed oil, apricot seed oil, aloe vera gel, Andrographis, Cats Claw, Curcumin, Quercetin, Resveratrol, Vitamin C powder, Magnesium powder, and powdered ginger. Mix thoroughly and store in a jar. This salve is to be used in the same manner as you would apply castor oil packs (read more about them here) . A typical application would stay on the body for about one hour and be kept warm with the use of a heating pad.
Information and Contraindications for DMSO
- You can purchase DMSO online or at a horse tack/feed supply store for about $7-10 a bottle.
- Look for Pharmaceutical grade DMSO when purchasing.
- DMSO may interfere or contradict other products and protocols, some of them include Protocel, Entlev, Paw Paw, or graviola, Amazon Factor Protocol, Budwig protocol, Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS), or chlorine dioxide
- DMSO will enhance the absorption of any prescription medications that you are taking and this can create a dangerous situation.
- Do not use this if taking chemotherapy.
- Pregnant women, those who wish to become pregnant, or those who are nursing should not use DMSO.
- DMSO will irritate the skin if used full strength so this product must be mixed with something pure to prevent burns. One way to do this is to thin it down with distilled water.
- Remember that whatever you use will be absorbed directly into your skin that is why Stacy used aloe gel that she obtained from her plants.
- Don’t let DMSO come into contact with your eyes.
- Don’t use plastic, latex or rubber gloves, or any other kind of gloves, when handling DMSO. The DMSO may bind to the gloves and transfer toxic substances through your skin.
- Do not let DMSO come into contact with clothing or other material.
DMSO can also be used with essential oils to help them absorb better. Read more about essential oils with this link.
