DMSO has many uses, but it is known mostly as a natural pain killer and transporter. First synthesized in 1866, DMSO is a sulfur-containing organic compound that is derived from MSM, and can be used internally or externally. DMSO can aid injuries such as sprained ankles, sore muscles and joints, and even fractures. The process starts when DMSO enters the bloodstream by osmosis through capillary walls. Then, DMSO is distributed throughout the circulatory system. Manystudies have been done on DMSO--including a Japanese study that found DMSO to be effective for rheumatoid arthritis.
However, despite being widely studied, DMSO has also been widely controversial. In 1980, the show 60 Minutes did a special on DMSO for pain relief, demonstrating its capabilities through personal testimonials. The initial broadcast received 70 million views.
DMSO continues to gain popularity as a transporter, as well. As recently as 2012, studies are still being conducted regarding how DMSO is able to transport medications so effectively. One study from China found that when DMSO was applied to a cellular membrane, it created temporary water pores, which enabled the infiltration of other substances to be increased (according to dosage). Currently, the American Cancer Society is investigating the possibilities of DMSO as a carrier for chemotherapy medicine in bladder cancer patients.
Pharmaceutical grade DMSO is powerful, but should not be confused with industrial-grade DMSO. While pharmaceutical grade DMSO will be more stringent in its purity requirements, industrial-grade DMSO may be contaminated with other substances. We have outlined other important caution points about DMSO on our website.
Here is just one testimonial about Life Choice DMSO:
"I was introduced to DMSO by a friend on Vancouver Island who listens to [The Natural Health Show]. . . I have been a hair stylist for over 50 years, yes, I still do work! Using my hands/wrists all day, and standing for a minimum of 8 hours a day, has taken a toll on my wrists, hips, and legs. I have tried numerous products to ease the pains I suffer, especially at night, that keep me active in my waking hours. Nothing has been able to give me much relief, until: I tried DMSO. I have been using it now for ten days and can't believe my new pain free life. Thank you very much for bringing this great product to your listeners, and helping me." -Gloria Y. from Kelowna, BC
