DMSO as a Gout Treatment
DMSO, Dimethyl Sulfoxide, is an effective sulfur-containing organic solvent.
At the Gout Clinic, we Love sulfur.
DMSO's therapeutic properties were discovered in 1963 by a research team headed by Stanley W. Jacob, MD.
DMSO is an effective painkiller.
It reduces inflammation and swelling, improves joint mobility, and it improves blood flow to gout affected areas by dilating blood vessels and by reducing blood platelet stickiness (decreasing blood viscosity).
It is a powerful solvent, which penetrates the skin, penetrates tissues, and enters the bloodstream.
Being a solvent, we use it as a carrier for other substances or drugs, and it also potentiates their effect.
At The Gout Clinic, we use DMSO:
Topical, eventually with additions of, e.g., Iodine, rosemary extract, castor oil, ACV, turpentine, wintergreen oil, MgCl, etc.
As an addition used in foot baths.
As an addition to poultice therapy.
DMSO is a safe treatment. Dr. Stanley named it "miracle medicine."
