DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE OR INJURY.
WARNING: NEVER ADMINISTER DMSO INTO THE RECTUM OR LARGE INTESTINE VIA AN ENEMA. THE RECTUM AND LARGE INTESTINE FUNCTION AS ORGANS THAT INVOLVE WASTE REMOVAL. THESE WASTES COULD COMBINE WITH DMSO AND BE TAKEN BACK INTO THE BODY IF DMSO IS ADMINISTERED AS AN ENEMA.
The following administration methods assume that you’re using 99.99% Pharmaceutical Grade DMSO unless otherwise stated.
Unlike Chlorine Dioxide Solution, DMSO is very stable and has a long shelf life even after it is combined with water.
Before you Begin: The DMSO Spot Test
Do a spot test if this is the first time that you are using DMSO. Wash the elbow crease thoroughly with Bronner’s soap or another type of soap that doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients. To do the spot test, prepare a solution of 70% DMSO concentration by combining water with the DMSO in a glass bowl or container. This solution should contain 7 parts DMSO and 3 parts water. If you are mixing a smaller quantity for the spot test, you could combine 7 drops of 99.99% DMSO with 3 drops of water to achieve the necessary 70% concentration. Dab the mixture on the crease of the elbow and then wait for 24 hours. If you experience prolonged redness, liver pain, or other unpleasant symptoms, do not use DMSO or try another spot test at a lower concentration of 40-60%.
It is nearly impossible to overdose on DMSO. Researchers have shown that test subjects given 1 gram of DMSO per kilogram body weight experienced no adverse effects from taking DMSO. So, if you wish to use DMSO as an oral medicine, simply put the dose you wish to take in water. Don’t take it without mixing it with water because DMSO is very drying and can cause irritation in the digestive system if you take it without water. As a stand-alone medicine, start with 100 drops in 4 to 8 ounces of water taken 3 to 5 times per day. Double the dose within one week if you haven’t experienced the results you were hoping for, but remember–DMSO takes time to work. Many patients must take DMSO for up to 6 weeks before they experience relief from their symptoms. Increase the dose by another 100 drops weekly until you are taking 300 drops per dose. You can continue to increase the dose up to 1 gram of DMSO per 1 kilogram of body weight if desired.
Topical / Skin Administration
When applied topically, DMSO enters the human blood within about 5 minutes. It does not immediately pass through the liver as it does with oral administration. As such, topical administration results in a longer medicinal action than when it is administered orally.
Below are recommended dilutions for the topical administration of DMSO to different areas of the body. Use an 80-90% concentration for warts.:
- Arms or Legs – 60-80% DMSO
- Torso – 40-70%
- Face – 25-50%
Administer the recommended concentration of DMSO at the recommended dose to the skin by repeatedly applying it to the skin using either your own hand or a safe DMSO administration tool.
Administer DMSO at a concentration of 25% as eye drops. Use a sterile saline solution to dilute the 99.99% DMSO down to a 25% concentration. Administer 1-2 drops of this 25% DMSO saline solution to the eyes once or twice daily as a natural eye treatment.
Ear drops should be prepared at a 0.1-0.25% concentration. Higher concentrations may damage the hair cells in the inner ear. At this low concentration, no damage occurs, but DMSO can still be administered to the ear to provide nerve protection and anti-infection treatment. To prepare this concentration, put 2.5-5 drops of DMSO with 75-50 drops of water in a brown glass bottle with a glass pipette. Begin with the lower concentration of DMSO. If 0.1% DMSO concentrated drops do not cause discomfort, you can increase the concentration of the ear drops up to 0.25%.
Nose and Sinus Administration
Nose drops should be prepared at a 25%-90% concentration of DMSO. To prepare this concentration, combine 25-50 drops of 99% DMSO solution with 75-50 drops of clean water. These drops should be prepared in a brown glass bottle with a glass pipette. Start with the 25% concentration of DMSO (using 25 drops of DMSO to 75 drops of water) and increase the concentration gradually so long as the DMSO solution doesn’t cause irritation. Put your head back and administer 1 drop of the DMSO-water mixture just inside the nostril and inhale powerfully to administer the DMSO to the nose and/or sinuses. Inhale 1-3 drops in each nostril up to 3 times per day.
DMSO can be administered into the vagina, but do not use a plastic douche to administer it. The DMSO can melt the plastic and take it into the vaginal tissues, which would be undesirable. Rather, if you wish to enhance the power of another medicine that you plan to use in a douche, like Lugol’s iodine, for example, administer DMSO using your fingers or a designated glass pipette initially and then let it soak into the vaginal membranes for a few minutes. Wash your hands with non-toxic soap before you use your hands to administer DMSO in this way. Then administer the medicinal solution (water + Lugol’s iodine, for example) using a douche.
Dilute the DMSO concentration down to 10-25% to avoid overdrying the vaginal tissues. To dilute the DMSO, put 1 part of DMSO with 9 parts of water (or put 2.5 parts of DMSO with 7.5 parts of water) in a brown bottle with a glass pipette. If you wish to add Lugol’s iodine as a medicine, add just 1-2 drops of Lugol’s to water and then administer this mixture after you’ve administered the diluted DMSO using your fingers inside the vagina.
