DMSO: A unique sulphur compound with many health benefits

Dimethyl Sulfoxide or DMSO is a natural compound containing sulphur. With its astonishing ability to relieve pain, fight inflammation and scavenge free radicals, the health benefits offered by DMSO are far and wide. DMSO holds tremendous potential in managing a wide spectrum of health conditions; ranging from muscle sprains to arthritis, and heart attack to spinal cord injuries, and is effective against radiation exposure and cancer.

What exactly is DMSO: A little background

DMSO is a by-product of the wood industry; formed when wood is converted into wood pulp. It was first discovered in 1866 by Russian scientist Alexander Saytzeff, who noticed that this colorless liquid is an excellent solvent.

Re-discovered by Dr. Stanely Jacob: The Father of DMSO

DMSO found its way into the medicinal field when Dr. Stanley Jacob, head of the organ transplant program at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, discovered that this interesting compound could penetrate deep into the skin, biological membranes and connective tissues; and most importantly without causing any harm. He came across DMSO in his pursuit to find better techniques to preserve organs used in transplants. 

These extraordinary findings compelled Dr. Jacob to begin his life-long journey with DMSO – where he researched the role DMSO could play in various health conditions. And the results were incredible; only to be shadowed by controversies; which Dr. Jacob believed were only bureaucratic and not scientific.

DMSO is truly unique. It can be used to relieve every day joint pains and muscle aches, but its ability to save lives is incredible but, unfortunately, lesser known. Given at the right time and in right doses, DMSO can be very beneficial in restoring the blood circulation, reducing brain swelling and reversing the damage caused by stroke, heart attack and spinal cord injuries.

Neurosurgeon Dr. Jack de Ia Torre and Dr. Stanley Jacob, scientists known for their extensive research work in this field, stressed that DMSO should be kept handy in ambulances and emergency rooms in hospitals. This kind of proactivity would reduce the number of people either dying or becoming disabled from such injuries.

What properties make DMSO so helpful?

  1. Acts as anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic

    • Neutralizes free radicals, the root cause of many chronic diseases, including arthritis.
    • Very effective pain killer; blocks peripheral nerve C fibres, responsible for mediating pain sensation [1].
    • Reduces signs of inflammation and swelling
    • Better and a safer treatment versus steroids, aspirin and other NSAIDs.

  1. Dilates blood vessels (as a vasodilator)

    • Improves blood circulation
    • Reduces blood clots
    • Enables better flow of oxygen and nutrients to the injury site
    • Promotes faster healing of wounds
    • Gets rid of cellular waste and damaged tissue

  1. Works as an effective drug delivery

    • Carries drugs (such as corticoids and antibiotics) across the biological membranes
    • Improves their absorption rate and efficiency; offering fast relief
    • Reaches remote sites and even crosses the blood brain barrier
    • Provides overall (systemic) benefits; even when applied to one area

  1. Acts as an anti-microbial

    • Fights bacteria, virus and fungi [2] [3].
    • Boosts immune system; increases the production and function of white blood cells.
    • Dissolves the outer shell of virus, exposing the pathogen, and allowing the immune system to more easily and effectively attack and combat it.
    • Effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria

DMSO: Providing wide-ranging health benefits

DMSO is found useful in:

  1. Joint and muscle pains (arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia)
  2. Soft tissue injuries
  3. Interstitial cystitis (bladder inflammation) [4]
  4. Stroke, heart attack, central nervous system injury [5] [6] [7]
  5. Infections (toenail fungal infection)
  6. Radiation exposure [8]
  7. Skin problems (shingles, psoriasis, scleroderma, scar tissue)
  8. Cancer [9] [10]

Is DMSO safe?

DMSO is a natural compound that is non-toxic with no adverse side effects.

  • Seven times safer than the commonly used drug aspirin
  • Used in the preservation of organs and tissues used in transplants.
  • Approved by the FDA to treat painful bladder inflammation or interstitial cystitis
  • Uses and health benefits supported by thousands of scientific papers, studies, and case studies

Always invest in a pure pharmaceutical grade DMSO. To make sure you have bought a pure solution, put it in the refrigerator: a pure solution will freeze within 2 hours.

Why People don’t know about DMSO?

From being hailed as a health miracle to a compound mired with unfair controversies, DMSO has an interesting history behind it. While on one hand, it is used to preserve organs and tissues for transplant purposes, on the other hand DMSO has not been approved by the FDA for any clinical applications and purposes.

DMSO is useful in so many health conditions. It relieves pain, reduces inflammation and restores blood circulation. It is also safer than NSAIDs, which only bring temporary relief from painful symptoms and also cause too many side effects (kidney, liver and gastrointestinal damage) when used for long, continuous periods.

Why doesn’t your doctor prescribe DMSO to treat chronic inflammation or for your arthritis and fibromyalgia symptoms?  The reason is obvious. As a by-product of the paper manufacturing process, DMSO is a natural compound. It is not possible to patent it and expect huge profits; hence no approval for randomized, placebo controlled clinical trials. For now, DMSO stands little chances of being treated as a mainstream treatment therapy.

DMSO is still approved for use throughout Canada, Europe, Brazil, Germany, Japan and many other countries to treat pain, inflammation, scleroderma, head trauma, and even Down’s Syndrome. [11]

On the European Medicines Agency website it was found that “On 3 March 2005, orphan designation (EU/3/05/263) was granted by the European Commission to AOP Orphan Pharmaceuticals AG, Austria, for dimethyl sulfoxide for the treatment of severe closed traumatic brain injury.” [12]

Concerns and Precautions

  1. Consult your doctor before using.
  2. Wash your hands before applying
  3. Apply on a clean, unbroke, undamaged skin.
  4. Avoid contact with any toxic substance during and immediately after topical application.
  5. One can feel itching, slight burning and warmth at the site of application.
  6. Temporary garlic-like body odor and taste is common.
  7. Not advisable for pregnant or lactating women.
  8. Never use more than 50% of concentration on sensitive areas like face and neck.
  9. Increase the concentration gradually.
