Intravenous DMSO – Unsurpassable Results in Clinical Practice

Posted by:

There has been some pretty fascinating studies published during the last decade which illustrate the miraculous effects of DMSO in a population that otherwise had no hope, namely cancer patients in palliative care.

For instance, intravenous DMSO was used to relieve pain in advanced biliary cancer and not only did it achieved that, but regression of major signs and symptoms including liver damage and enlarged organs were also reported. You cannot really appreciate the implications of this from the abstract alone. In fact, it would be a practical impossibility to surpass the positive effects this research group achieved considering the extent and the type of cancer. So let’s have a closer look.

Palliative Treatment for Advanced Biliary Adenocarcinomas With Combination Dimethyl Sulfoxide–Sodium Bicarbonate Infusion and S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine” by Ba X. Hoang, Hung Q. Tran, Ut V. Vu, Quynh T. Pham, and D. Graeme Shaw reports:

Pretty remarkable I would say! Someone had a great idea to make the conversions to Western available units, i.e. sodium bicarbonate 8.4%:

I was surprised to learn that the best research available on parenteral DMSO was from veterinary medicine. See for instance, Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) – A Review by Cory Flagg Brayton published in The Cornell Veterinarian. v.76 1986.

In this update from pioneer Stanley Jacob and his colleague Jack de la Torre, “Pharmacology of dimethyl sulfoxide in cardiac and CNS damage” (2009), DMSO’s benefits are summarized as follows:

They also report how to use DMSO IV safely. For spinal cord injuries, they recommend a dose of 1-2g/kg in a 28-40% solution of DMSO diluted with either physiological solution or 5% dextrose with water in an IV. However, to prevent DMSO-induced intravascular hemolysis (a reversible temporary side effect where red blood cells are lysed), it is recommended to use a less than 30% DMSO solution in an IV. However, water retention and hypernatremia has been reported with high DMSO dilutions, for instance < 10% in severe head trauma patients.  This side effect can be avoided when a 25-35% DMSO solution is given in an IV.

The DMSO infusions and cocktails are the personal favorites in my personal practice with family and extended family. It has saved loved ones from dire emergencies as well, i.e. post-traumatic brain injury edema. Here’s a sample of how I’ve used it, with doses variating according to weight and condition. The infusion rate is approximately 1 drop per second:

Nacl 500ml
Vit C 20gr-25g (40ml-50ml)
DMSO 6ml-15ml
B1 100mg
B6 100mg
B12 1000mcg
Folic acid 20mg (2ml)
MgCl 1g (10ml)
Glutathione 300mg (5ml)
Actovegin 200mg-400mg (5ml-10ml)

      I think it has its applications. Pain relief has been described with oral, topical and parenteral DMSO. So yeah, it’s good to keep in mind.
