Pain Relief with Cheyne’s DMSO
One of the top rated products on our store is Cheyne’s DMSO. DMSO is known as “Nature’s Healer and is excellent for all types of external pain relief. The use of Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) in medicine dates from around 1963, when an Oregon Health & Science University Medical School team, headed by Stanley Jacob, discovered it could penetrate the skin and other membranes without damaging them and could carry other compounds into a biological system.
So how exactly does DMSO work? Best summed up in the words of Dr. Stanley W. Jacob, co-discoverer of the therapeutic properties of DMSO: “ We’ve barely scratched the surface, for this is a new principle in medicine. We’ve had only three new principles in our century — the antibiotic principle, the cortisone principle, and now the DMSO principle — and the DMSO principle is the only new one of our generation….”
The chemist Dr. H Harry Szmant says that the basic therapeutic principle of DMSO is that cellular damage can be altered — the cell healed and restored to near normal — by changing the water structure within the cell.
Uses of Cheyne’s DMSO:
-It blocks pain by interrupting conduction in the small c-fibres, the nonmyelinted nerve fibres.
-It is anti-inflammatory.
-It is bacteriostatic, fungistatic and virostatic (It stops the growth of theses pathogens, but may not necessarily kill them)
-It transports numerous pharmaceutical products across membranes.
-It reduces the incidence of platelet thrombi in blood vessels (prevents blood clots)
-It acts as a tranquilliser even when simply rubbed into the skin.
-It’s a vasodilator (increased blood circulation) and prostaglandin inhibitor (reduce inflammation)
-It reduces scar tissue when applied to scars.
-It stimulates various types of immunity.
