DMSO and Magnesium Oil
DMSO or dimethyl sulfoxide is a by-product of paper making process. It is a natural, non-toxic sulphur compound with amazing healing powers; and especially known to reduce swelling, pain and inflammation in tissues.
DMSO was first discovered by Russian scientist Alexander Saytze in 1866, who observed that DMSO is an extraordinary solvent. Many years later Dr. Stanley Jacob, the head of the organ transplant department at University of Oregon Medical School at the time, became acquainted with this sulphur compound while trying to figure out better methods to preserve organs for transplants. Dr. Jacob was intrigued when he noticed DMSO could easily penetrate skin and connective tissues without causing any damage.
Dr. Jacob, also known as the father of DMSO, spent decades researching, establishing and propagating the health benefits of DMSO in managing a spectrum of conditions such as chronic pain, arthritis, bursitis, stroke and spinal cord injuries.
While the FDA has only approved it to treat interstitial cystitis or bladder inflammation, doctors in Europe and Canada prescribe DMSO for a range of disorders such as chronic pain, arthritis, stroke and scleroderma. DMSO is also used to treat severe closed traumatic brain injury. 
DMSO: Natural Organic Compound with Amazing Medicinal Properties
- Works as an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory
- Improves blood supply to damaged tissues; accelerates healing
- Restores blood circulation
- Reduces chronic pain
- Penetrates skin as well as the blood-brain barrier
- Works as a vehicle to transport topical drugs (such as corticoids and antibiotics) across the biological membranes
- Strengthens immune system
DMSO is effective in treating the following conditions:
- Soft tissue injuries; muscle sprains and strains
- Arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia
- Interstitial cystitis (pain and inflammation of the urinary bladder)
- Radiation exposure; protects free radicals damage and facilitates DNA repair
- Shingles, psoriasis, scar tissue and scleroderma
- Superficial burns and wounds
- Recurring toenail fungal infection
- Frostbite (damage to tissues in extremely cold temperatures)
- Bacterial and viral infections
DMSO in interstitial cystitis
DMSO is FDA approved to treat interstitial cystitis. It is a chronic condition marked by persistent pain, pressure and inflammation in the urinary bladder and the surrounding area – especially lower back and lower abdomen. The pain typically gets worse as the bladder fills with urine.
DMSO brings together its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties to provide substantial relief in people with interstitial cystitis.
DMSO in heart attack, stroke and spinal cord injuries
When given at the right time and in appropriate dosage, DMSO can prevent and reverse the damage that occur in tissues during heart attack, stroke and injury to brain and spinal cord.  
- Dilates blood vessels and reduces platelet stickiness
- Restores blood circulation; prevents paralysis
- Dissolves blood clots
- Lowers intracranial pressure; reduces swelling in brain (brain edema)
- Reduces inflammation in brain tissue
A Word of Caution: DMSO is available in different grades. Make sure you only buy pure pharmaceutical grade DMSO if you are looking to unlock its true potential without any risks or untoward side effects. To check for purity, keep the solution in your refrigerator. If the solution is pure, it will freeze into solid ice within about 2 hours. But an impure or veterinary grade DMSO solution will have little streams of water flowing through the ice when you flip the bottle upside down.
Concerns and Precautions
Always consult a medical professional first before you start using DMSO. It is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
- Do a patch test and first apply to a small area on your skin to check for any adverse reaction
- Start with a diluted concentration with pure or distilled water.
- Apply with clean hands
- Apply on dry, clean and unbroken skin
- Avoid exposure to any harsh, toxic substances after you have applied the solution (DMSO can transport these substances through the skin and into the bloodstream.)
- Dilute your solution to 70% or 50% when applying to sensitive areas like face
- Topical application can cause mild irritation or slight burning sensation. Applying aloe vera will help.
- DMSO use may cause a garlic-like odour and taste
Magnesium Oil reduces musclepain and cramps
- Back muscle pain
- Neck muscle pain
- Shoulder pain
- Leg muscle pain
- Chest and arm muscle pain
- Cramping leg muscles
- Carpal tunnel
- Tendonitis in wrists, tennis elbow, golfers elbow
- Deeper, more restful sleep
Magnesium Oil is the most concentrated source of magnesium you can use for muscle pain relief, does not stop inflammation instead, it stops pain, relieves muscle cramps and helps release knots in stressed muscles.
Magnesium promotes deeper, more restful sleep. Magnesium is an extremely effective sleep aid because it offers the body at rest the benefits that make it effective for muscle tension, stress, pain relief, blood sugar regulation, hormone production, and many other benefits.
