DMSO For Herpes

Introduction In April 1980 Mrs Vernice Reed, a health and nutrition counsellor in San Francisco, developed a severe and painful infection in her mouth. In desperation, she consulted first her doctor, then her dentist. In turn, they told her, “Sorry – there's nothing we can do to help.” The infection turned out to be herpes zoster, or shingles, which usually appears as regions of tiny red blisters on the chest, and can be extremely painful. When herpes (whether herpes zoster or herpes simplex) appears on the head and face it can be dangerous as well as painful: the herpes virus can get into the ophthalmic nerve and cause damage, even blindness. Mrs Reed had a bottle of DMSO in her cupboard for use as a first-aid remedy, and, feeling she had little to lose at this point, decided to experiment with it. She diluted the full-strength DMSO liquid 50:50 with distilled water, and used this mixture to swab her face and mouth, and gargle in her upper throat. She did this three times throughout the day, and by that evening the pain was gone. The next day she repeated this process, adding aloe vera to the mix as a soothing agent, and by the following day there were no more blisters. “I didn't need to swab anymore,” said Mrs Reed. “My mouth has never had any blisters since.”

If DMSO can cure herpes zoster, what about herpes simplex? One doctor, Orville J. Davis M.D., has used DMSO successfully many times in combination with vitamin C, given intravenously in severe cases as well as applied to the skin. Dr Davis reports the successful treatment of a 58 year old woman who had herpes simplex lesions covering the right side of her head. She was treated with intravenous vitamin C, with a DMSO-vitamin C mix applied to the lesions, more or less continually. Within 3 days the lesions were gone, never to return. There are hundreds of clinical case studies like these, and research studies too, including many by reputable medical researchers, showing amazing results with DMSO for a whole range of medical conditions. But a medical practitioner who offers DMSO as a treatment for any condition other than one bladder disorder – interstitial cystitis – is in danger of having his or her medical licence revoked. So what's the story with DMSO? Is it really as effective – and as safe – as the enthusiasts claim? Is the FDA the good guy fighting quack remedies – or the bad guy dancing to the strings of Big Pharma? Let's pull back the curtain on DMSO and take a look at what it is, and how it works. Then make up your own mind.

What is DMSO? DMSO, or dimethyl sulfoxide, is a by-product of the wood-chipping and paper manufacture industry. It's extremely cheap to produce, and readily available because of its easy production and widespread use as an industrial solvent. First discovered by a Russian scientist in 1866, DMSO was only a laboratory curiosity until the early 1960s, when Robert Herschler, a chemist who worked for the Crown Zellerbach paper company, began experimenting with it. By that time, it was known that DMSO had some amazing properties as a solvent, and was able to combine with a huge

variety of other substances. In 1959 a British group had discovered that DMSO would protect red blood cells and other biological tissues from freezing in sub-zero conditions. This got the interest of Dr Stanley Jacob, at the University of Oregon Medical School, who at that time was looking for a way to safely freeze human kidneys for transplant. Together they discovered that DMSO had a unique capacity to pass through skin and cell membranes, and even more exciting, to carry other substances with it, for example penicillin. This meant that the penicillin was able to get to where it was needed, more efficiently and in smaller doses than either oral or intravenous application. There's another key property of DMSO that has led to some of its almost miraculous applications. Robert Herschler and Stanley Jacob noticed that DMSO had a drying effect on the skin, and decided to experiment with it as a treatment for burns. Not only does DMSO keep the burned skin dry – and so protected from infection – but it can also relieve the extreme pain associated with a burn. And here's an extra bonus: further down the track DMSO is able to reduce scarring and promote healthy skin formation after a burn or injury. Since those first studies, DMSO has been found to ●

Reduce swelling and inflammation in medical conditions such as arthritis, sports injuries, tendonitis.

Assist in the healing of head injuries and cerebral stroke.

Soften collagen and reduce or prevent the formation of scar tissue.

Act as an antibiotic, anti-viral and anti-fungal agent in its own right.

Relieve pain and promote wound healing.

These properties have led to a host of applications for DMSO in a huge range of medical disorders. DMSO is approved as a treatment for interstitial cystitis, which is an inflammatory bladder condition of unknown origin with no other effective treatment available. And though the FDA haven't approved any other medical uses, there are reports – lots of them – about the effectiveness of DMSO in treating auto-immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma and lupus.

There are reports that DMSO may have some therapeutic effect in cases of cancer, stroke, diabetic neuropathy and Alzheimer's disease. And even more cases in which DMSO has been found to successfully treat musculo-skeletal injuries, wounds, burns, and skin lesions. The reports include using DMSO as a treatment for herpes. We'll get to that later. But right now you're probably wondering, “Why haven't I ever heard of DMSO for treating herpes?”

DMSO banned DMSO has never been totally banned, because of its industrial uses. However, DMSO was banned for medical use by the FDA in1965, when a woman in Ireland died of an allergic reaction after taking a cocktail of different drugs, including DMSO. (Though it was never established that DMSO was the culprit, it ended up with the blame.) Around the same time, a toxicology study found that DMSO caused cataract-like changes in the eyes of some experimental animals. (There have never been any reports of changes in the lens of any human eye from DMSO, but the concern persists.) The ban on medical use led to a thriving black market, with industrialgrade DMSO being sold from the backs of trucks in Dallas, hair salons in Chicago, and hobby stores in California. The FDA have since relaxed their total medical ban, and clinical trials of DMSO for various serious conditions have been approved since 1966 – though it's mostly still not allowed for therapeutic purposes. However, in 1970 DMSO was actually approved for veterinary use. It's now widely used for musculo-skeletal injuries and conditions in dogs and horses, and other things too. Veterinary grade DMSO is more refined than industrial grade DMSO – no reputable vet would use a toxic substance on a dog or horse. And nor would they continue to use it if it didn't work.

In 1978 one lonely medical use was allowed by the FDA: DMSO was – and is – approved for the treatment of interstitial cystitis, after a small study showed that it helped reduce the inflammation and pain associated with this bladder disorder. The FDA's reluctance to allow wider medical use for DMSO seems to be due to several things. It's been suggested that its established use as an industrial solvent may have prejudiced the Fed against DMSO, and even more, the media and public enthusiasm undoubtedly created a backlash of official opinion. Between 1964 and 1983 results from over 1500 medical studies, on more than 120,000 patients with a range of medical conditions, had been submitted for FDA consideration. To date, they have rejected all but one – for interstitial cystitis – of the new drug applications submitted for the medical use of DMSO. The Fed's stated rationale is that they have not seen any properly convincing double-blind studies showing that DMSO is an effective treatment. (It's hard to do double-blind studies on DMSO, because of its peculiar and distinctive odour on the breath. It's virtually impossible to disguise who is receiving the DMSO treatment, and who is getting the placebo.) But to anyone who knows even a little about the FDA approval process, it's obvious that there is more to it than this. Many new drugs get approval on much flimsier evidence of both effectiveness and safety. A cynic might think that the real reason for the lack of acceptable clinical studies on DMSO could lie in its availability and low price. What sort of profit margin would there be for a pharmaceutical company under these circumstances? And what might be the damage to sales of other products, if a cheap and readily available solvent were able to successfully treat conditions that they are making huge profits in just “managing”? Do you think the FDA are really being objective, or are they perhaps being swayed by pressure from the pharmaceutical companies who have their own interests at heart???

Is DMSO safe? Dr Stanley Jacobs has recently passed away (at the grand old age of 91). But since 1963 he regularly took DMSO himself – not for any medical reason, but “because if any side-effects are going to develop, it's better that they raise their ugly head in my body than anyone else's.” And Robert Herschler, who worked with Dr Jacob in discovering the first medical uses of DMSO, stated publicly on Good Morning America that “Compared to aspirin, DMSO is a much safer drug. People are killed taking aspirin; no-one has ever been killed taking DMSO.” During the same interview, the then Director of the FDA's Bureau of Drugs, J. Richard Crout, MD was the other guest. Dr Crout admitted, when asked about the safety of DMSO: “It's really quite safe when put on the skin. I don't believe I would raise scare tactics about when people put it on and use it for a few days.” DMSO has been used medically by doctors and even more by hundreds of thousands of people for home use. Dr Moreton Walker says in his book “DMSO: Nature's Healer” that up to that time (the book was first published in 1993) “no toxicity has been reported in consumer reports, at medical meetings, in the scientific literature, during the four international DMSO symposia, or anywhere else. The approximately 2000 people for whom physicians in medical practice have personally prescribed DMSO have not advised of any serious deleterious reactions.” So what about the woman who died of an allergic reaction in Ireland? And what about possible changes in the lens of the eye, found in some animal toxicology studies? The woman in Ireland was taking several other drugs besides DMSO. The actual cause of death was never established, and there have been no other reports of severe allergic reactions to DMSO. As for changes in the lens of the eye: although some refractive changes in the lens were observed in dogs, rabbits and pigs who were taking high doses of DMSO over a long period of time (5g/kg over 3 months),

this was never found in primates, and there have never been any reports of eye changes in humans, in spite of ongoing concern about this. In fact, an exhaustive toxicology study was conducted on human subjects in the state correctional institution at Vacaville, California in 1967-68 by Dr Richard D. Brobyn. A group of 45 prisoners volunteered for the study, which required them to be coated all over their skin with DMSO over a period of three months, and extensive tests were done, including on their eyes. No toxic effects were found, and it was concluded that DMSO was an extremely safe substance. Moreover, DMSO has been used by some ophthalmologists directly in the eye as a treatment for cataracts and other eye conditions, and there haven't been any ill-effects noted. (Yes, the treatment helped reduce the cataracts, too.) Still, the caution has stuck, and prudent practitioners using DMSO will get their long-term patients to have regular eye check-ups, just to make sure. For short and medium term use, up to a few months, no concerns have been raised, not even by the scare-mongers.

DMSO side-effects The main side-effect of DMSO is “garlic breath”. Though pure DMSO is tasteless, it's broken down in the body to dimethyl sulphide which has a distinctive garlic-like odour. It's harmless, and most people find the therapeutic benefits of DMSO worth the minor annoyance. Another common problem is skin irritation, if DMSO is applied fullstrength to the skin. It's generally recommended to start off with a 50:50 dilution because of this, and gradually increase to 75% DMSO if it can be tolerated. DMSO should not be used with any blood-thinning medication such as warfarin, or even aspirin, and for hemophiliacs, DMSO should only be used under medical supervision, if at all. (For those with the opposite problems, that is, related to blood vessel blockage, DMSO can have obvious benefits.) Click on this link to read more about DMSO side-effects.

How to use DMSO The most common way to use DMSO is to apply it topically. Since DMSO has such spectacular ability to penetrate skin, this is the most efficient way to use it in most cases, as well as being the easiest. DMSO can be purchased as a liquid (the purest form) or as a gel, or as a cream. The gel has some advantages in being easier to apply, but the liquid works out cheapest. It's generally recommended to purchase the 99.9% pure, pharmaceutical grade DMSO (which you can buy in bulk), and then dilute it. You can mix it with distilled water, or with aloe vera, which helps to counter the slight irritation you might experience with DMSO. Use food quality aloe vera, i.e. juice intended for oral use, the kind you buy at a health food store. Only make up enough of the mix for immediate use – that is, for a few days – because adding aloe vera will reduce its shelf life. Start by diluting the full strength DMSO 50:50 with either water or aloe vera. Test it first on a small area of skin, eg the inner elbow, to see if you get any allergic reaction. If this is okay, then try applying this mixture on a larger area, to the part of your body you want to treat. If this is a sensitive area, eg mouth or genital area, it might be wise to stay with the 50% solution. If you feel you can tolerate a higher concentration then increase it to 70% (7 parts pure DMSO to 3 parts distilled water or aloe vera).

For use as a topical analgesic, a 70% solution is generally used. For deep penetration or use as a carrier with other substances, aim for 70-90%, which has been found to be the most effective for penetrating skin. (For some reason, a solution over 90% strength tends to be less effective.) Because DMSO is such an effective carrier, you need to make sure you wash your hands and the area to be treated quite thoroughly before applying DMSO. Don't apply any lotions or creams within at least an hour of applying DMSO, as all commercial lotions and creams contain some preservative and often other chemicals – stuff you don't want inside your body. You can apply DMSO with your (clean) hands, or with a cotton bud or cotton ball, depending on the size of the area you want to treat. Be generous about the area you apply it to, and trust that it will get to where it's needed. Remember that some people use DMSO orally without any ill-effects (other than a slight degree of gastric irritation equivalent to the skin irritation you may experience with full-strength DMSO) so don't worry about an overdose of DMSO, and don't be concerned too much about applying it to a precise area. The DMSO will enter your blood stream and get carried to the place it's needed, for the most part. Once you apply DMSO you can massage it a bit to encourage absorption, and then leave it to dry for about 20 minutes. If you plan to cover the area with clothing, make sure it's a natural fabric such as cotton or linen, and not a synthetic such as polyester or nylon that might react with DMSO. For chronic conditions such as arthritis, it's recommended to apply DMSO daily, over a period of several weeks at least before expecting to notice any benefits. For acute conditions such as a burn or a cut or a lesion, apply DMSO 3-4 times per day until the pain goes away.

Using DMSO for herpes As well as the general advice given above, here are the specific different ways you can use DMSO for herpes: 1) To relieve pain and promote healing of lesions in an outbreak DMSO, like most other treatments for herpes, works best if it's applied when you first notice the warning signs (eg tingling) and before the lesion erupts. Some people have found that the lesion just disappears before it has a chance to erupt. Most often, it will break out but then dry up and heal much faster than previously. You can use DMSO on its own or combine it with any other treatment that you have found helpful, such as essential oils. Click here to read about other effective natural remedies for herpes. 2) DMSO as an anti-viral DMSO has been found to be an anti-viral in its own right. It dissolves the outer protein coating of the virus and leaves the core unprotected, able to be attacked by the immune system of the host. (That's you!) Because DMSO has a unique capacity to penetrate nerve cells, it's able to get right to the hiding place of the herpes virus – and so potentially eliminate herpes from your body for good. But DMSO is even more effective when combined with other treatments.

3) DMSO as a carrier With DMSO able to get through the skin and bring other molecules with it, a huge potential field of healing opportunities is opened up. The carrier properties of DMSO have led to combination treatments for all sorts of conditions – and specifically for herpes (herpes zoster and herpes simplex, both of which are related viruses that act in the same way, hiding in the spinal nerve roots). One duo that is reported to work is a mixture of DMSO and an anti-viral drug (idoxuridine). The combination is more effective than just using the anti-viral on its own, and at lower dosage too, meaning that there is less risk of side-effects. DMSO has also been used with Vitamin C, applied to the skin to treat herpes, again with excellent results... as we saw in our story way back in the introduction to this report. And we know that there are other natural substances that are even more powerful anti-virals, effective against herpes simplex, that are not being promoted – and in many cases are actively ridiculed – because they are low cost and not patentable... (read: no profit potential for the pharmaceutical company). Right now, we're at the beginning of discovering the most powerful ways to use DMSO for herpes. But there are doctors who are defying the medical establishment and quietly using these potent natural anti-virals in their own clinical practice... and getting results for their patients. (Not in the United States, but in the UK and Europe, where natural treatments have a long and respected history of use.)
