What does modern medicine think of DMSO?

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

WebMD.com says: DMSO is a prescription medicine and dietary supplement. It can be taken by mouth, applied to the skin (used topically), or injected into the veins (used intravenously or by IV). DMSO is taken by mouth, used topically, or given intravenously for the management of amyloidosis and related symptoms. Amyloidosis is a condition in which certain proteins are deposited abnormally in organs and tissues. DMSO is used topically to decrease pain and speed the healing of wounds, burns, and muscle and skeletal injuries. DMSO is also used topically to treat painful conditions such as headache, inflammation, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and severe facial pain called tic douloureux. It is used topically for eye conditions including cataracts, glaucoma, and problems with the retina; for foot conditions including bunions, calluses, and fungus on toenails; and for skin conditions including keloid scars and scleroderma. It is sometimes used topically to treat skin and tissue damage caused by chemotherapy when it leaks from the IV that is used to deliver it. DMSO is used either alone or in combination with a drug called idoxuridine to treat pain associated with shingles (herpes zoster infection). Intravenously, DMSO is used to lower abnormally high blood pressure in the brain. It is also given intravenously to treat bladder infections (interstitial cystitis) and chronic inflammatory bladder disease. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved certain DMSO products for placement inside the bladder to treat symptoms of chronic inflammatory bladder disease. DMSO is sometimes placed inside bile ducts with other medications to treat bile duct stones. In manufacturing, DMSO is used as an industrial solvent for herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, and plant hormones. How does it work? DMSO helps medicines get through the skin and can affect proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and water in the body. Modern medicinal uses The medical community says it is: Effective for: Bladder infections (interstitial cystitis) when used as an FDA-approved product. Possibly Effective for: Decreasing nerve pain caused by the herpes zoster virus (shingles) when used with a drug called idoxuridine. Inflammatory bladder disease. Treating skin and tissue damage caused by chemotherapy when it leaks from the IV. Medical Studies on DMSO Study Name: Dimethyl sulfoxide in treatment of inflammatory genitourinary disorders. Shirley SW, Stewart BH, Mirelman S. Study Findings: Intravesical dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) has been used in the treatment of 213 patients with various inflammatory conditions involving the lower genitourinary tract, including intractable interstitial cystitis, radiation cystitis, chronic prostatitis, and chronic female trigonitis. Significant symptomatic relief has been achieved in the majority of patients so treated, and no systemic or local toxicity has been noted. There are some 2000+ studies involving DMSO. Itʼs benefits and risks are still not fully...

The Facts about DMSO – Dimethyl sulfoxide

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

What is DMSO? Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH3)2SO. It penetrates the skin very readily, giving it the unusual property for many individuals of being secreted onto the surface of the tongue after contact with the skin and causing a garlic-like taste in the mouth. As DMSO reacts to the ozone in the upper atmosphere it can pick up an extra oxygen molecule thereby making DMSO2 or MSM. Where does DMSO come from? Like MSM, DMSO originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton release sulfur compounds into seawater. This Plankton is quickly converted to DMS, a volatile sulfur compound that escapes into the atmosphere. In this suspended, gaseous state, the DMS reacts with ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create DMSO and DMSO2, known as MSM. MSM then falls to the earth with the rain, where it is collected and concentrated in plants and subsequently...

How Does MSM Work?

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

How does MSM work? Sulfur is one of the few elements that transports oxygen right into your cells. This process makes the cell walls more permeable. This is extremely important for cells as some elements need in, like oxygen, and some toxins need out, like heavy metals. Bioavailability Ingested MSM enters almost all tissues of the body within 24 hours of its oral ingestion. Most unused or metabolized MSM is excreted from the body within 96 hours of its ingestion (although some MSM remains in the body for up to 400 hours (16 days) after its ingestion. MSM is excreted from the body primarily via the Urine. Lesser amounts are excreted via Saliva, exhaled air and Perspiration. Are MSM and Organic Sulfur the same thing? Yes and no. The answer really comes down to how it is made. MSM can either be made via distillation or crystallization. Even Dr Mercola weighs in on the issue of distilled vs crystalized. For MSM, distillation is by far superior. But crystallization is less expensive, and a lot less energy-intensive. According to Mr. Benjamin, only two companies that produce MSM use distillation. Mr. Benjamin explains why you should consider a product that has been purified using distillation. “A lot of the problems with [crystallization] is youʼre essentially crystallizing it out of a parent solvent or liquid. If there are any impurities, which could be salts of heavy metals, you could have aromatic hydrocarbons in that… Itʼs actually the parent solvent. Itʼs usually water. It is dependent upon water quality.” We choose to use the term Organic Sulfur as MSM can indicate anything that is chemically Methylsulfonylmethane regardless of how it is made. Organic sulfur either comes from plants and animals or from a high-quality distilled...

Testimonies For Our 12 Week Study

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

A 60-something year old participant: “I have been taking sulfur for a week and noticed a difference in my wellbeing. I am very thankful that my friend told me about sulfur.” A 60-something year old participant: “I have more energy and less food cravings.” A 50-something year old participant: “I am a competitive athlete and notice a significant difference in muscle recovery as well as less lactic acid buildup during resistance and aerobic activity!” A 60-something year old participant: “I have no aches or pains in any part of my body and full range of motion.  My hair grows much faster as do my nails.  Hair grows longer not thicker.  Nails harder and longer faster.” A 60-something year old participant: “Nails are stronger, cuticles softer, no more hang nails, heals are softer, no need for lotion, skin is clearer, less wrinkles (YEAH!!!)” A 70-something year old participant: “I seem to have more energy. I just installed a side walk beside my house with pavers and white rock. ( it is about 30 ft long) Good for a 73 – 5’1″ lady huh? I had been wanting to do this for a while.” A 20-something year old participant: “After only two doses if natural organic sulfur crystals I totally and completely lost my desire for coffee, to which I had been addicted for many years.  I continued taking it and found my various food cravings for foods not especially healthy for me began to melt away. I immediately felt more energy and better mood.“ A 50-something year old participant: “After brushing for two weeks with the sulfur my gums are pinker. Other than that I have been more energetic, started a morning workout program.” A 60-something year old participant: “Joining this study has literally been life-changing for me.  Not only has the sulfur taken away my addiction to coffee, but it has lifted a sort of low-level depression I was under, giving me loads of mental energy as well as increased physical energy. I’m now exercising, which I was not doing before, and making progress in my studies, which had been put on hold for a couple years, literally.  I feel great about myself and have more energy both physical and mental.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for inviting me to join this study.  I had no idea what sulfur could do for me.” A 60-something year old participant: “March 8th will make two months since I started taking the sulfur and I still have not taken, nor wanted to take, any coffee….that addiction appears completely gone, along with cravings for foods that are not good for me.  I have much more energy, physical and mental….and a low-level depression I was feeling has disappeared. The skin on my hands appears “thicker”, though I’m looking forward to more improvement in my skin…it’s still too dry.  I’m very happy with the results so far and will always take sulfur...

What does natural health medicine think about MSM?

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Sulfurdefense.com states: Organic Sulfur [or MSM] is one of the most important nutrients needed by the body that is lacking in a majority of our foods today and in peopleʼs bodies. Organic Sulfur can positively benefit almost every health ailment known to man. While the most common uses over the years have been for joint support, its diverse range of benefits go way beyond that. Natural medicine uses Some of the many benefits of organic sulfur crystals include: Increasing enzyme production within bodily glands and improving resistance to illness Increasing flexibility in muscle tissue Increasing blood circulation Reducing muscle inflammation and promoting muscle healing Promoting the healthy growth of hair and fingernails Discouraging the growth of cancer cells through oxygenation Reversing osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease Promoting healthy skin production and reducing wrinkles Regulating insulin production Improving colon function and eliminating colonic parasites5 Cleansing or “detoxifying” effect on the cells within the body. It allows the body to remove toxins that have accumulated in all types of cells, including fat cells. Increases enzyme production within the glands in the body, substantially increasing overall resistance to illness. Increases flexibility in the tissues within the body and increases blood circulation. Reduces muscle inflammation, promotes healing in the muscles and prevents them from becoming sore. To a degree there is soreness and recovery, but return to normality is quickened. Athletes, in particular, benefit from this as the intake of additional OS dramatically decreases their recovery time. Eliminates so-called “free radicals” in the body. Allergies to pollens and certain foods can be reduced or eliminated by its use. Promotes healthy, increased growth of hair and fingernails. Reversing of osteoporosis, Alzheimer`s disease and Parkinson`s disease. Aids in healthy skin production and the reduction of “wrinkles”. It is one of the main ingredients in moisturizing creams. Helps the body properly regulate insulin production. Adequate OS in the diet can reduce the need for insulin injections. Helps in reducing and often eliminating diverticulitis. Parasites living in the colon are unable to remain attached to the colon walls on which OS forms a smooth, resistant coating. Hatching worms, having nothing to grab on to, are flushed out. Helps alleviate emphysema. It provides the body with material to manufacture new, healthy cells, on lung walls. Causes the body to rapidly release alcohol “hangover” toxins, removing them aswaste from the body. The process happens far more rapidly than it takes to recover from a hangover, often as quickly as 20 minutes. Helps alleviate chronic headaches. Increased circulation in the brain cells promotes proper blood circulation within the brain. Less pressure and pain result, reducing tendencies for headaches. Reduces hypoglycemia in the body because it has made it easier for the body to introduce blood sugar through more permeable cell walls. Less insulin is demanded for the process, resulting in less overuse of the pancreas. Several months of consistent OS usage can reduce or eliminate hypoglycemia entirely. Helps alleviate PMS. Glandular production is enhanced by OS to have more “normal” levels of production. Acid levels, enzyme levels and hormonal levels are more evenly balanced with OS. Cramps, headaches and nausea from the monthly cycle can be reduced or eliminated through its use. Helps promote better kidney function more efficiently. Water retention problems due to bad kidney function can be alleviated. Helps alleviate eye problems. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of sulfur crystals in 4 ounces of water and use as eye drops as frequently as you like....
