Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO): is the chemical compound with the formula (CH3)2SO. This colorless liquid is an important polar aprotic solvent that dissolves both polar and nonpolar compounds and is miscible in a wide range of organic solvents as well as water. It has a distinctive property of penetrating the skin very readily, allowing the handler to taste it. Its taste has been described as oyster- or garlic like. Dimethyl sulfoxide is a by-product of wood pulping. As a natural compound which molecular structure is smaller than water, DMSO can easily penetrate tissue cell walls. Once absorbed into the cells, DMSO seems to have a way of forcing toxins out of the cells. The toxins are then carried out thru the Urinary tract.
Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Atherosclerosis, Chemical Injury & Ischemia, Fibromyalgia Herpes, Interstitial Cystitis, Lupus, Malignancy, Mental Retardation Nervous System, Niemann-Pick Disease, Scleroderma, Skin and Tissue, Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury have all been studied and shown to have improvement when DMSO is used therapeutically.
This is mostly due to DMSO’s ability to scavenge free radicals which damage healthy tissue and create inflammation. The Hydroxyl free radical is the most deadly known to man, DMSO seeks out this very same free radical. Since DMSO is a very powerful anti-oxidant it is very protective of human tissues.
Evidence shows a very positive result is liver and kidney condition after treatment with DMSO. While protecting the cells in our tissues, DMSO is also cleaning them making them work much more efficiently.
Patients who are receiving traditional medical treatments may be eligible for DMSO infusions to increase the effectiveness of standard therapies. DMSO is a chemical carrier, it has been used as a carrier agent for other chemical compounds in the treatment of disease.
DMSO can be mixed with different Intravenous solutions to greater enhance their ability to penetrate cells. When Medications are more readily absorbable less of the medication can be used, making it easier on the body to process.
“A wide range of primary pharmacological actions of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) has been documented in laboratory studies: membrane transport, effects on connective tissue, anti-inflammation, nerve blockade (analgesia), bacteriostasis, diuresis, enhancements or reduction of the effectiveness of other drugs, cholinesterase inhibition, nonspecific enhancement of resistance to infection, vasodilation, muscle relaxation, antagonism to platelet aggregation, and influence on serum cholesterol in emperimental hypercholesterolemia. This substance induces differentiation and function of leukemic and other malignant cells. DMSO also has prophylactic radioprotective properties and cryoprotective actions. It protects against ischemic injury.” (1986 Academic Press, Inc.)
DMSO has so many applications the future is very bright for this wonderful therapy. Ask your physician today if DMSO therapy is right for you.
