Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) is a natural substance; it is a
byproduct of the lumber industry. It has no odor, a low level of toxicity and
has a relatively high boiling point.
It was discovered by the Russian scientist Alexander Zaytsev, but was not fully
explored until the early 1960′s. In 1961 Stanley Jacob a surgeon from the
University of Oregon, was looking for a way to supercool animal organs for
transplant experiments and came in contact with DMSO.
When Stanley Jacob applied DMSO to the burned skin of an assistant after a lab
accident, he noted a remarkable recovery. After that he intensified his research
and he became the “father of DMSO”. He discovered that DMSO could penetrate the
skin and other membranes without damaging them and could carry other compounds
into a biological system..

In medicine, DMSO is predominantly used as a topical
analgesic, a vehicle for topical application of pharmaceuticals, as an
anti-inflammatory, and an antioxidant. Because DMSO increases the rate
of absorption of some compounds through organic tissues, including skin,
it can be used as a drug delivery system.
It is frequently compounded with antifungal medications,
enabling them to penetrate not just skin but also toe and fingernails.
It is being used by the pharmaceutical industry for
veterinary and human use. In its crude form, this carrier solvent is often used
by veterinarians and athletic coaches in the treatment of muscle sprains and
various injuries. It promotes healing by increasing the blood supply to the area
of the injury. DMSO is a gentle but powerful healing substance.
DMSO is of course also used in combination with MMS (protocol 1000+, protocol
3000 & topical spray). DMSO carries the MMS to “bad” cells. It is especially
effective against cancer.
DMSO can also transport fluoride. So do not take a
DMSO bath with fluoridated water. Fluoride
is dangerous en can penetrate your body with DMSO.
