DMSO and frankincense work together to gain access to cancerous tumors that would otherwise nearly impossible to reach.

Introduction to Frankincense and DMSO Treatment for Cancer


A lot of people are familiar with frankincense (also known as olibanum or Boswellia serrata) and it’s ability to cross the blood-brain barrier to shrink tumors, but fewer people are familiar with DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) and its ability to strengthen medicinal treatments and to also make cancer cells vulnerable to those treatments. DMSO also has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier (it can penetrate all tissues in our body except tooth enamel and keratinized tissues) and when combined with frankincense it offers an even stronger holistic treatment strategy for those with brain cancer including glioblastoma. [1][2]


Frankincense hit the anti-cancer scene through the work of Ty Bollinger and his book and TV series called The Truth about Cancer. It was only through word-of-mouth that information about frankincense as a cancer cure became widely known. In particular, frankincense is an essential oil that’s well known for its ability to reduce the size of brain cancer tumors, but other types of cancer respond to frankincense oil as well (including bladder cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and leukemia). Many patients apply frankincense oil at the base of the skull. Mixing frankincense oil with DMSO may make the medicinal properties of the frankincense stronger and it may make the cancer cells weaker. Both frankincense and DMSO are affordable and easy to order online.  [3]

DMSO has a wide range of medicinal actions and it’s one of the least toxic substances currently used in modern medicine (it’s FDA approved for cystitis treatment during pregnancy). DMSO performs all of the following functions in the body:


  • Enhances cellular membrane penetration
  • Enhances membrane transport of drugs or nutrients
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory
  • Acts as an analgesic or pain-killer
  • It reduces scar tissue
  • It’s an anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal agent
  • It can reduce drug-resistance in micro-organisms
  • Functions as a diuretic
  • Dilates the blood vessels
  • Scavenges for free radicals. [1]


Frankincense on the other hand can be used to control bleeding, speed up the process of healing from wounds, it can fight arthritic inflammation, improve uterine health, and improve oral health. Though frankincense is famous for its ability to treat brain cancer, research has shown that ovarian cancers (which are notoriously resistant to conventional chemo and radiation treatments) respond well to treatment with frankincense oils. Combining frankincense with DMSO could potentiate the effects of the medicinal properties of this oil. [2][3]


Research has suggested that frankincense may be more effective than chemotherapy and radiation because frankincense has demonstrated effectiveness at treating cancers that don’t respond very well to chemotherapy. Apparently, certain cancer cell types simply don’t respond to chemotherapy, but those same cancer cells tend to respond well to therapy with frankincense. [3]


Frankincense contains acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA), a substance well-known for its ability to fight cancer. Boswellic acids have the ability to stop tumor growth by inhibiting topoisomerase I and II-alpha. They stimulate apoptosis (programmed cell death) and patients taking frankincense experience no side effects. [4]


Frankincense can be applied to the skin with saponified coconut or jojoba oil or it can be taken orally in a beverage, but make sure you get high-quality, organic Frankincense. DMSO can be put with the frankincense, but be aware the DMSO may potentiate other medications that you’re taking. It makes cell membranes permeable so be sure your skin is clean (washed with water, not soap because soap contains chemicals) before you use DMSO. Though you can combine frankincense with DMSO to create your own recipe, here’s a link to a company that sells a DMSO, frankincense and aloe mixture [3]


Brain cancer patients who have undergone surgery to remove their tumor may experience cerebral edema. DMSO can increase vasodilation to the brain and spinal cord which can help reduce cerebral edema. It’s been used after traumatic injuries to the brain with excellent effects on patients including the ability to regrow nerves and nervous system tissues. [1]


If you’ve been diagnosed with any reproductive system cancer such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, vulvar cancer, vagina cancer, penile cancer, or prostate cancer be sure to include Lugol’s iodine or Iodoral and learn more about how iodine can be used to cure cancer.

Pine Needle, Geranium, and Frankincense Essential Oils: Breast Cancer Cure

A study published in 2017, details the use of frankincense, pine needle, and geranium essential oils to suppress the growth of breast cancer tumors by regulating the AMPK/mTOR pathway. These three essential oils clearly suppressed the viability and proliferation of cancer cells and also inhibited their ability to migrate and metastasize to invade human cells. The frankincense injections in the study were prepared by mixing it with DMSO in a 1:2 ratio and diluting it to a 1:1000 (volume/volume) mixture with saline. The smear was prepared by diluting frankincense to 1% in grape seed oil. The use of DMSO and grape seed oils are important in curing cancer. Grape seed oils contain vitamin B17, which is a powerful and important cancer cure.

The AlivenHealthy LivingDatabase is a tool that Lydian and I use to gather and store information as we’re doing research on various diseases for our clients. The LivingDatabase is a searchable tools that we’ve been using for nearly a decade to gather information, but now it’s available to the public. Use it to find information about scientifically proven cures for serious diseases and disorders. Lydi and I are constantly adding to this database of information. Every time we find a new scientific report about natural substances that have high cure rates for cancer or other diseases, we link to it in the database. Currently we have two LivingDatabases that are live to the public: The Alternative Medicines Living Database and the Essential Oils Database.

The Alternative Medicines Database includes data about  substances like herbs, nutrients, or even over-the-counter pharmaceuticals that are widely available and powerful as medicines, but that have been hidden by Big Pharma because their patents have expired. The Alternative Medicines Living Database contains Ayurvedic remedies and information about Traditional Chinese Medicine cures for diseases as well. In contrast, we also recently released The Natural and Essential Oils Living Database which contains information about oil-based therapies, including powerful essential oils that are not always well-known even among those who use essential oils regularly to cure disease. Though Lydi and I can’t write about every cure for disease that we find, this database allows us to provide more information to more people who need it. It’s like a private search engine of direct links to scientific and anecdotal information about cures for diseases that are otherwise hidden or nearly impossible for the average person to find.
