What about DMSO, is it the real deal? I read this testimonal: June Jones, once quarterback and later coach of the Atlanta Falcons pro-football team, had a bursitis calcification in his right shoulder. His career almost didn't happen as he could hardly lift his arm, let alone throw a football. But he was aware of DMSO and had used DMSO for sprains, like thousands of others. He received a shot of DMSO in the shoulder and after using DMSO for 30 days straight, the calcification disappeared. (Haley, 2000)

I used DMSO in the early 80's. One day made mistake of getting it too close to the family jewels and the burning just wouldn't stop. Be careful where you apply it.

I have been using DMSO since the 70's and just started using it again. It used to be used by vets, vwery often to treat race horses thathad problems with inflamation in thier legs. June Jones along with many football players used this, it was said it smelled like garlic in the trainers rooms. There was a story about DMSO on the "Real People" tv show back I think in the late 70's. This show interviewed players from the AStlanta Falcons about there use of the product. It is sold as a cleaner in health stores, but you find it where muscel rub is found. I have always used in in liquid form, recently I purchased a roll on. It does itch like heck when put on. Long as it works with pain and inflamation I will continue to use it. Donny C.

DMSO had quite a buzz decades ago when it was used by veterinarians and some people experimented and said it was a good lubricant that was absorbed through the skin. The Federal Drug Administration was testing it for approval, but there was a scare that it was causing eye problems, so the trials were stopped and the FDA to this day has not approved it for human use.

Most claims for its effectiveness are anecdotal, which is common in health food store products where portions and quality are often not consistent, and most claims have not really been scientifically tested. Some evaluations have been done again by researchers going through archives. Looks like the eye scare was overblown, but it is possible that DMSO is not really a consistent help. All agree that your breath and body reek like garlic if you take it.

DMSO is an odorless, tasteless solvent the is simply an effective carrier. It has no theropeutic action but carries the attached chemical through the skin and into the body. It was discovered by accident when it was spilt on a lab table top and came in contact with some mint (not sure if it was gum or candy, etc) while cleaning up the spill, when the chemist touched the solvent and tasted pepermint in his mouth. Therefore, great caution must be taken when DMSO is used because it will carry whatever it comes in contact with into ones body. Benefits of Chemistry 101 class - professor trevia from 1973.
