Default MSM article. What do you think?

Would like some feedback on this article I came across. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

MSM = Methyl Sulfonyl Methane


How Can Sulfur Help Your Life?

And, Why Is
Standing In The Rain
So Healthy?

Article By Karl Loren

Cleaning And Feeding Cells

The Modern Scientific Miracle

MSM = Methyl Sulfonyl Methane


I started writing this article in a state of joy about a nutritional substance that was new to me. I�m getting fantastic results with it.

But, as my research went on, I became angered.


Because I found that the substance that was new to ME, was NOT new in research circles, and because I found that the really good news had been hidden from view. It had been shown to greatly reduce chances of someone getting cancer.

And, of course . . .

There is NO PROFIT in this substance. It is a natural substance that "falls from the sky," and has no toxic effect. (Footnote #1)

It just creates wellness.

So, the research stopped!

Was it stopped deliberately?

Why, of course, not. It is simply true that research costs money and there is only drug company money to pay for such research. No drug company will pay for research to prove that some natural substance will prevent cancer.

But, enough of the political soapbox! I bring you mostly the message of great good news. The sorry old story about the evils of drug research are too well known to repeat!

So, what is the "rainwater" that can prevent cancer and has, it turns out, many, many other wonderful benefits for you?


This report contains a great deal of information about MSM. Included within this information are testimonials, scattered throughout the report. You can simply read through the report, page after page, using the "next" button at the bottom of each page, or you may "jump" to the page that deals with the testimonial for some specific application of MSM The "jump" links are next below, followed by a few more introductory paragraphs, and then the report continues to the following pages.

This substance is known by the initials, "MSM," and I�ll explain those initials later in this article. For now, just think of it as the "modern scientific miracle."

I�ve reviewed hundreds of pages of material on this "MSM," and found that NONE of those sources had gotten to the level of detail I�m now reporting.


Partly because the reports about MSM preventing cancer are buried in technical language so obscure that only a medical scientist would understand it.

So, let�s take a look.

First, just to convince you about that obscure language, take a look at the following:

Quote From Orthodox Medical Research Report

"It has been known for many decades that certain murine and human cancers can spontaneously mature to benign tissue." (Footnote 2)

First, if you started reading this single sentence, you�d stumble across the word "murine," and I�ll bet a couple nickels that you don�t know what it means.

You might guess or know "spontaneously," and "mature" and "benign tissue," but what the dickens does it mean that some cancer "spontaneously matures to benign tissue?"

Let me tell you a secret!

The researchers who write this type of stuff probably understand it, but they don�t write for you and me. They write for one another, and very few of the rest of us take the time to look up the words.

This is worth your time, really, here in this article, to understand something very basic about research reports and study.

The word "murine" simply means:

Affecting or pertaining to mice or a mouse.

So, we have a sentence here that is talking about cancer in mice and in humans. Much of the research done on cancer is done with mice � it�s cheap and fast. They take a mouse, deliberately inject something to give it cancer, and then "treat" the mouse with various things. It�s really not bad unless you are one of those who love mice!

I assure you that if you don�t know the word "murine," you will not understand the rest of the sentence, even if you can define the rest of the words.

So, this sentence simply starts off by saying that "for a long time," a certain thing has been known about cancer in mice and in humans.

Next, the word "tissue" simply means "part of your body." Your heart is "tissue," and so is your liver, and even your bones are considered "tissue". Your body has a lot of "tissue" in it. The word, here, doesn�t mean Kleenex! (Footnote #3)

So, we�re talking about cancer somewhere in the body of a human or a mouse.

Now, we know the word "cancer," and that it�s a bad thing. Cancer is a life-threatening disease. How about the word "benign?" That simply means "good." (Footnote #4)

I could go on, but let me put that one sentence into my own words � very simple words at that.

My Restatement

It has been known for a long time that a cancer in man or mouse can change from being a deadly growth that threatens your life to suddenly become a completely harmless lump � no danger!

Now, that�s interesting, isn�t it. I didn�t really know that before I read this report. I didn�t know that some cancer could start growing in your body and somehow, and suddenly, change from being a deadly life-threatening problem to being just a harmless bump or lump.

Now that we�ve got that first sentence understood, I�m going to put the remainder of the report in a footnote for you to check me out, but put my own language for it here: (Footnote #5)

Full Restatement

Cancer has been known for a long time to sometimes suddenly change from being a deadly life-threatening problem to becoming harmless. Over the years various researchers have tried to figure out what makes a deadly cancer change into a harmless lump. One of the things they have tried is to feed the person (or animal) a substance that I�m writing about in this article. But, that substance can�t be patented because it is "natural," and therefore no drug company will spend any money to tell you about it. Your doctor won�t tell you because he got all his education from drug-oriented schools and his medical license depends on selling you on drugs and surgery! This substance, MSM, prevents cancer

I�m delighted to be bringing you a report on a substance which will probably be new for you � something with the initials MSM. (Footnote #6)

Read on for some of the technical details of what this substance is. Think of it, for now, as a living mineral!

And, miracles, indeed, you should expect from this.

Karl Loren�s Personal Experience

My first experience?

I heard about it, but doubted it.

I�m pretty jaded when it comes to "new vitamins." After all, I�ve been taking massive quantities of very high doses of vitamins for more than 10 years. I really don�t count them, but I know there are more than 100 tablets and capsules per day that I pop down the �ole gullet.

Besides those, I drink several ounces of liquid substances that I think are helpful to me.

Many times over these past years I�ve tried something new only to find that it didn�t do a thing for me.

Several times I tried something and noticed an immediate difference, but usually that difference just didn�t last.

Only a very few times have I tried something which has had consistently lasting results for me.

One of those substances is MSM.

My own personal experience was, as I look back at it, very dramatic. At the time I thought it was "normal."

Let me take a minute of your time to mention that I first got interested in the "vitamin business" when I went to a lecture about parasites -- and how just about everyone's body was filled with them. I saw this gross pictures of tapeworms that were 10 feet long -- having been "expelled" from the body. Ugh!

The lecture urged me to buy this herbal combination which would kill or loosen the grip of these parasites -- I was convinced.

It is not often that you will spend hours on your hands and knees, peering into the toilet, looking for wiggling things! I did. I never found a wiggling thing. But, the herbs certainly did cause loose bowels and some stomach rumbling.

I mention this because the worst thing a vitamin can do for you is "nothing" which you can observe. You swallow this pill -- you don't perceive anything happening. It then devolves back onto faith or technical knowledge. I take CoQ10 for that reason. I personally don't feel any different when I take it, but I believe from my reading of the literature that it is a very important nutrient to take.

So, I have been a believer in "detoxification" for many years, and also a believer that any effect I can observe is better than no effect observed -- and I view the "value" of that effect as separate from whether or not there was any effect.

In other words, when I experience some effect on my body (a rash, for instance) I realize, first and foremost, that there is an effect there. I withhold judgment as to whether that effect is good or bad.

Then, I make a separate judgment on the goodness or badness of the effect.

Since I believe so strongly on the value of detoxification, I am prone to regard any effect that COULD be a detox effect as a good effect.

You understand that this is an inclination, not science.

So, my personal experience with MSM.

First, I resisted taking it for a couple years after I heard about it. The stuff I heard sounded too good to be true, so I just simply didn't believe it and didn't buy any or try any.

Then, I heard a story one more time and it was convenient to buy a small bottle of capsules -- and I gave it a try. These were 500 mg capsules of MSM only -- no additives.

Now, another inclination I have, not necessarily good, is that "more is always better." So, I started with about 4 of those capsules. I took them around noon of that day -- about 2 years ago.

Well, I quickly noticed that I had this tremendous increase in energy. After a few hours I found that it was hard to walk -- I felt like running. I was running up the stairs and singing to myself. I found it hard to believe that MSM could do this, but MSM was the only new thing I was using.

That night I couldn't get to sleep. I was wide awake, full of energy and finally gave up sleeping and worked most of the night on my computer tasks.

I didn't think that level of energy could last, but I was willing to try. I took fewer capsules the next day, and still had that incredible level of energy -- but I was dragging a bit at the same time.

No sleep that night.

So, by the next day I took my 2 capsules in the morning -- no more during the day. I still felt great, and now I managed to get a full night's sleep.

Amazingly, I found that my dreams were in Technicolor and I slept very soundly, I had not had trouble getting to sleep before, but now it was a decidedly nicer sleep.

This high energy, good sleep "thing" lasted several more days -- the effect winding down -- as I took increasing doses of MSM to see if I could maintain that feeling.

After a couple weeks I was taking about 12 capsules per day (6 grams) and there was no more energy effect -- I was sleeping very soundly however.

Then, that fateful day I "twigged" on the cause of the high energy.

I was having nothing more than a "drug high." I became convinced that this was true.

I had never, in my whole life, used any "street drugs" but I had some normal amount of medical drugs and even weight-loss "pills." I analyzed my reactions to those MSM capsules and decided that I had a drug high -- a very rapid detoxification at a light enough level that the toxins coming out of my cells were not enough to cause sleepy or tired feelings.

Now that those toxins were removed, I was probably into a period where the detoxification, if any, would be slower and now so dramatic.

That was very much the case.

It was about 5 weeks after my first taking of MSM that I started getting a rash.

The first little "bump" was not anything to even notice -- it was just a small red bump on my chest -- with an itch like a small mosquito bite.

Then, within a few days, that one bump got larger, itched a lot, and there were many other small bumps.

I'm sorry if this is a bit gross, but you may have this happen to you and you should know.

Those bumps became very uncomfortable -- itchy! I would, naturally, scratch them. When I did that, there was blood. It wasn't running blood, just a little blood where the "scab" had been. These were not "regular scabs" either -- just little red bumps that itched. If you scratch them, there is blood.

Well, that itchy feeling became very uncomfortable -- but by now I knew that I was in a full detoxification mode and I was willing to have the discomfort in favor of the detoxification.

But I looked for ways to ease the itch! Skin lotion wouldn't help. Finally, I found MSM lotion and that took the itch away immediately. The itch, however, would only go away for an hour or two.

So, this rash on my chest went on for some months -- getting bigger and bigger bumps, spreading over more and more of my chest.

Then it started to clear up. Hurray! I thought.

But, then I started "feeling" bumps (itchy places) on my back.

Yes, the rash then transferred to my back. About this time I went to Germany for a 10 day trip and I carried lots of MSM with me -- to continue the detox process. I also carried MSM lotion with me to ease the itch.

I spent lots of time standing up against doors and corners to rub my back against the corner or the door -- to reach parts of my itchy back I couldn't reach with my hands.

Then, the rash started to clear from my back -- my chest was completely clear -- but move to my buttocks and groin!

If your first experience with a rash is in your groin, you probably won't want to tell anyone -- and you may want to hide from your spouse. I've never had venerial disease, but I suppose it looks like that rash in some advanced stage.

If you want uncomfortable itchy, try it in your groin.

Well, fortunately, that didn't last too long, but it then spread to my arms and legs.

In total this took 9 months. You can hardly believe, by now, that anyone would go through this -- but I so strongly believe in the value of detoxification that I did go through it and I would encourage you to do the same.

All during that time I was taking MSM in both capsules and loose powder -- a total of about 10 to 15 grams per day.

After those nine months the rash was all gone -- I've been free of ANY uncomfortable effects of MSM since then.

I suppose I attained pain relief during that time, too, but it didn't rise to much of a level of observation -- so dramatic was the rash.

Now, with no rash to occupy my mind, I find that MSM gives me very quick relief from back pain.

I often forget to take the stuff -- and will sometimes go for a few days without taking any.

Then, for whatever reason, I awake in the morning with a stiff neck, or painful back. I now rush to my MSM container and take a heaping teaspoonful == washing it down with water.

I will often find the pain gone within an hour or so. In earlier years a back pain, or a stiff neck would seem to stay with me until I could go to bed that night.

So, MSM is a permanent part of my life -- I take 10 to 20 grams per day, don't always remember, but ALWAYS remember when I have some pain somewhere.

When I started to sell this stuff, particularly in bulk form, I expected EVERYONE to go through this detoxification process. I have been amazed at how few people have the same experience I had.

The great majority of my customers who tell me about their experience talk about immediate pain relief from arthritis, etc.

I estimate that only about 10% report a rash, and even fewer report to me the "drug high" reaction I had for the first week.

So, you are most likely in the "majority" of people and would find a dramatic detoxification not very likely.

I am convinced that MSM continues its detoxification process at a low level as long as you take it -- making individual cell walls more permeable -- so that the cell can more easily get rid of garbage and absorb nutrients.

I encourage you to give MSM a chance to change your life.


There is a fancy name for those initials, but let me simply call it "living sulfur." It seems that rainwater contains this stuff, and that all plants and animals have it. Humans too, unless you happen to eat all your food cooked!

As you expected, storage and cooking eliminates the MSM in food.

Yes, you can guess that if you drink rain water you�ll get the MSM that�s in it. But, if the city water supply adds their chlorine, and stuff, the MSM turns useless!

MSM is a type of sulfur. You won�t be surprised probably, to learn that the most important ingredient in the oral chelation formula I�ve written so much about is the amino acid cysteine, a sulfur-type amino acid.

You won�t be surprised, either, to realize that the doctor tells you to NOT eat eggs, particularly to stay away from the yolks of the eggs.


He claims the eggs cause death from heart disease. That�s a lie!

The truth is the yolk of an egg contains a good amount of the amino acid cysteine, and that sulfur is usually badly lacking in your body.


Again, because you are probably eating cooked foods!

So, think of MSM as a type of sulfur that you can find in fresh, uncooked fruits and vegetables, and in raw meat. You probably don�t get much of this MSM stuff in your diet. (Footnote #7)

What does MSM do?

It is related to DMSO (click footnote #8 below), the "penetrant." You may or may not have heard of DMSO, the substance that almost every professional athlete uses to remove pain and soreness from muscles. DMSO, a liquid, is simply applied to the area of the body where the pain is. (see Footnote #9, below) It penetrates through the skin so quickly, and so thoroughly, that you can actually put some on the sole of your foot, and within a few minutes get the taste of the stuff in your mouth. (Footnote #8) (Footnote #9)

DMSO is used routinely and successfully in certain bone transplants. (Footnote #10)


It doesn�t taste all that good, but it sure penetrates.

It Penetrates!

As it is penetrating, it gets into the cells and helps the cell walls become more flexible. The individual cells then can get rid of toxins, and absorb nutrients, much more easily than before.

When cells age, the cell walls get rigid and hard. The walls of the cell won�t let stuff in or out! You get garbage inside the cell, and it can�t get out. Also, the connections between the cells get rigid, so you get old!


Toxic overload!

Muscle pain is often caused by "lactic acid" accumulating inside the muscle cells � where it doesn�t get flushed out. The MSM helps those cells get rid of the lactic acid, and get rid of pain.

You have nutrients floating along in the blood stream, but the cells can�t absorb them � the cell walls are too rigid, too hard.

Along came DMSO, made those cell walls more flexible. (Footnote #11)

Out went the toxins.

Away went the pain!

In went the food and vitamins.

The health improved.

Around For Years

So, DMSO has been around for years, used by many thousands of people on the outside of their bodies. It would be pretty nasty to drink, so you won�t find people swallowing the stuff. But, there are useful medical treatments that involve injecting it.

Then along came Dr. Stanley W. Jacob, in Oregon, and discovered how to modify DMSO to eliminate the taste and odor, and to make it fit for swallowing. It�s slightly different, and called MSM. It is a dry white powder, usually put in capsules. (Footnote #12)

It�s been on the market for some years, but not very well known � that�s for sure. I only heard about it this year.

When you swallow this stuff, along with other vitamins, minerals and nutrients, it takes those along with it. THEY get into the cells much more easily than before � because the MSM is making those cell walls "permeable," and they can absorb the nutrients AND get rid of their own garbage.

Evidence of how DMSO (an, by inference, MSM) increase permeability is very common in the scientific literature. (Footnote #13)

Here is a quote from one such study:

A wide range of primary pharmacological actions of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) has been documented in laboratory studies: membrane penetration, membrane transport, effects on connective tissue, anti-inflammation, nerve blockage (analgesia), bacteriostasis [stopping cell growth without killing cells], diuresis [increased urination], enhancement or reduction of the effectiveness of other drugs, cholinesterase inhibition, nonspecific enhancement of resistance to infection, vasodilation, muscle relaxation, antagonism to platelet aggregation, and influence on serum cholesterol in experimental hypercholesterolemia [high cholesterol]. This substance induces differentiation and function of leukemic and other malignant cells [change from malignant to non-malignant]. DMSO also has prophylactic radioprotective properties and cryoprotective actions. It protects against ischemic [restricted blood flow] injury. (Footnote #14)

Other Benefits

I�ve had some interesting results too.

First, I�ve been taking Vibrant Life vitamins for more than 10 years, and pop down about 100 tablets per day! (Footnote #15)

So, it really takes something unusual to make a difference for me.

But, I was waking up every morning with a stiff back and neck. The stiffness would go away with exercise, but nonetheless, I knew that my sleep was not very restful because my back was tense in the morning.

I didn�t know, at first, that MSM usually causes a detoxification for the first several days you use it. Anyway, I have "detoxified" so often that I couldn�t believe there were still toxins to get rid of. I had them!

The first couple days I took it, I couldn�t sleep. Too much energy! I guess it was all those old candy-bars from my mis-spent youth coming out and giving me a sugar high!

Then I realized something else about toxins in the body.

When you take toxins in, of any sort, the body tries to get rid of them. If there are too many, the body has some desperate measures it uses to handle the problem.

First, "getting rid" of toxins often involves the immune system simply attacking the toxins � and that is an expensive use of your immune system.

But, that�s not the worst of it.

When the immune system can�t handle the toxic overload, there is another mechanism which is not yet well known.

The body simply starts STORING the toxins in your fat tissues. It goes in there, where "nothing" is happening. Those tissues are not part of your normal body functioning, so the toxins just stay quietly in there � out of the way.

Unless, you happen to sweat a little, or lose weight, or do some exercise. Then, some of those fatty tissues might give up some of those toxins. (Footnote #16)

Then, you simply re-experience the same symptoms as if you had newly taken in the toxins.

This explains how a person can take LSD as a youth, and then, years later, have an "LSD Trip." The LSD that was more than his body could handle simply got stored in some fatty tissue. Then, a small amount of it "leaked out," and it was just like he took another hit of LSD.

You can have the same experience with ANY toxin, including coffee.

And, when those toxins are detoxified, you can re-experience any symptom that the toxin might have originally caused.

Here is something else many people don�t know about TOXINS.

Just about ANY toxin, whether it is deadly arsenic or mild coffee toxin, is a stimulant when you take a very small amount, and deadly when you take a larger amount.

So, drink a few cups of coffee � get more energy. Drink a lot, get sleepy. Drink a lot more and die.

It takes only a tiny amount of arsenic to kill you, but years ago there were people who actually believed that arsenic was good for the body, and took small doses, to start, and gradually built up to larger doses.

So, no matter WHAT toxin you have taken into your body, when you detoxify that toxin, the FIRST symptom might be that you feel stimulated.

Yes, you can get high because some toxins are leaking out of your fatty tissues.

Then, you get more leaks, and you don�t feel high anymore, you feel tired.

So, detoxification is a fantastic process, and generally every body on earth needs quite a bit of it.

When you do it, with MSM, or any other way, you may well experience a great increase in energy � like that first cup of coffee when you were young. Or that first swallow of beer! But, as the detoxification process continues, or if you move it along faster than you can comfortably handle, you can expect to then experience the fatigue and tiredness of too many toxins in your body.

How can you detoxify?

There are many, many ways. Fasting is a good way, but strenuous. Exercise and sauna are other ways. MSM is yet another. My experience is that different techniques seem to go after different toxins, or different parts of he body.

So, I�ve "detoxified" myself several times, with different techniques. With the MSM, the detoxification started earlier on a good friend whose diet has included more junk than mine. I had only an increase in energy for a few days, then "nothing," and then, extreme tiredness and body aches for a few days. I was taking massive amounts (over 5,000 mg per day) of the MSM, cause I was in a hurry to see what would happen.

You can be guided by these observations. Take a small amount, and detoxify slowly � perhaps not even noticing any difference. Or, be brave (or is it fool-hardy) and take large amounts. If you take a lot of MSM, then take lots of water, eat prunes, go to a sauna, do some exercise, get lots of sleep.

But, within a few days, or few weeks, awake into a new cleaner and brighter body.

My gift to you � MSM and cleaned cells that, NOW, will also be more easily kept clean and more ready to receive the nutrients you need, and they need.

Try it, and let me know.

Back Pains!

Here is more of my personal experience with MSM.

In any event, the pains in the back started going away. I got bold and took 10 capsules just before going to sleep. I was amazed to have a more restful sleep than in years, and to awaken with no pain or stiffness of any kind in my back or neck.

Jean Ross and I both take MSM now, and expect to keep our cells healthy enough to absorb all the other stuff we swallow, and to help those cells get rid of the waste products they accumulate during the day.

We marvel, from time to time, at how people spend their money. We spend a lot on vitamins every month. But, then we see other people spending on cigarettes or whatever. We�re quite satisfied with our financial decisions. I speak to many people about vitamins and health subjects. They often ask me about whether or not they should take this or that. It�s amazing that the answer often comes down to money! Good health is not cheap, but it�s better AND CHEAPER than poor health!

We all live within some limitations on our budget, and we all make decisions on where to spend the cash. I can assure you that when you convert the cost of your monthly cable TV bill to using it on vitamins you will be doubly blessed. The TV is a negative influence on your health, for sure, and the vitamins will be a good one.

But, each of us makes our own decision in these areas.

If you want to improve your health, take MSM on a regular basis. I�ll leave to you where you get the money to take all these wonderful things.

Most of the remaining material in this article came from a routine search of data on the Internet.

Sulfur is one of the most basic building blocks of the structure of the body. Without the proper amount of sulfur or MSM in our system, we cannot produce good, healthy cells.

We can get this essential nutritional sulfur from some of our foods: milk, fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, but we lose most of this absolutely important mineral by heating, drying and processing our food.

When our system is deficient in MSM, our bodies cannot make enough good cells to overcome the effects of the sick cells.

We then are subject to various illnesses, aches, pains and allergies until we correct the problem with good healthy cells. The body wants to heal itself, if it can get the proper nourishment. We all need a little extra MSM each day for good health!

The body uses up the equivalent of about one capsule (750 mg) of MSM each day during resting time alone.

Active bodies or ailing bodies need more.


Most people have heard of DMSO, and how hundreds of thousands of people have been helped by using DMSO.

A few years ago, the world's leading DMSO researcher, the eminent Dr. Stanley Jacob of the Oregon Health Sciences University, was able to isolate an extremely important and beneficial part of DMSO. It is referred to as Methyl Sulfonyl Methane, and is simply known as MSM.

It was determined that it was the MSM part of DMSO that brings so many health benefits to those that suffer from various ailments and diseases. MSM provides the health-giving benefits of DMSO without any nuisance side effects.

You Use It Up Every Day

The human body would use up as much as 750 mg of MSM each day, if it were available! Good health practices involve replacing essential substances that our bodies naturally use up or lose through illness or abuse. MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms, and is present in low concentrations in our body fluids and tissues.

Found In Fresh Foods Only

It is found in a variety of fresh foods, including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, and milk. Unless your diet is composed primarily of raw foods, it is unlikely that you are receiving enough MSM for proper health management.

When we process our foods with heat or drying, we lose most of the MSM that is vital to our well-being. MSM helps our bodies utilize the vitamins that we take, providing the means to derive the maximum benefit from them.

The question might arise as to whether the MSM, taken as a supplement, will be as effective as the MSM contained in fresh foods. Fortunately, a study was done on just that, and it showed that MSM does get absorbed by the body tissues when taken as a supplement. (Footnote #17)

Without the proper amount of MSM in our bodies, the amino acids will continue to build the glands, but fail to produce the correct enzymes, making us prone to unnecessary illness.

MSM is the flexible bond between proteins. When a cell dies, a new cell takes its place. Without the needed amount of MSM, it attaches but becomes rigid.

When tissues lose their flexibility, problems develop with the lungs and other parts of the body.

MSM detoxifies the body and increases blood circulation.

Because there are few nerves in the bones, our pain comes from the soft tissue. MSM takes out the inflammation, permits the muscles to heal and prevents them from becoming sore. If you play sports or work-out in a gym and normally get sore muscles the next day, take 4 capsules of 750 mg each of MSM before exercise and you will notice a difference. If taken after exercise, the soreness will go away faster.

MSM Gets Rid Of Those Pesky Free Radicals

MSM is a free radical scavenger, so allergies to food and pollens will go away.

MSM also prevents overreaction to other medicines, so it does not work against any medications.


MSM controls acidity in the stomach, so it can help ulcers. MSM coats the intestinal tract so parasites lose their ability to hang on. They are then flushed away. This could prevent colon problems.

MSM is no more toxic than water. It can never hurt anyone. (Footnote #18)

If you overdose, the extra MSM becomes inert and just passes through your system. MSM has one side effect...your fingernails and hair will grow faster and become stronger. This is because there is more MSM in hair and nail cells than in any other part of the body. You need a little extra MSM every day to promote good health.

Sulfur is a mineral found in rather high concentrations in our body tissues. About half of the body's total sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, while the other half is found in the brain, hair, skin and bones. Sulfur comprises 0.25 percent of our body weight.

Sulfur � The Protein Building Block

Sulfur has a vital relationship with protein, since sulfur is found in the amino acids methionine, cystine, and cysteine. Thus, these amino acids are known as the sulfur bearing amino acids which are considered the building blocks of protein.

The sulfur-bearing amino acid methionine is absolutely essential to health! This means it must be supplied by live food, or the food supplement MSM. My oral chelation formula, of course, contains both cysteine and methionine. When you are deficient in these amino acids, your muscles and body will weaken. If you take "enough" you get a strong body. If you take "too much," the extra cysteine, for instance, will be used to get rid of toxic metals in the body. So, it�s rather hard to take "too much" of these sulfur amino acids.

The MSM won�t do the same thing as cysteine, but your body can manufacture cysteine for cell building out of the MSM that you give it. (Footnote #19)

So, MSM is a vital nutrient that you should have in your daily intake.

A lack of proper protein in our diet, therefore means a lack of the vital organic sulfur necessary for good health. Proteins contain sulfur, while carbohydrates and fats do not.

Sulfur is necessary for collagen synthesis. Collagen is an insoluble fibrous protein found in vertebrates. It is the dominant component of connective tissue and bones. Sulfur operates as a synthesizer and activator with the B vitamins, thiamin, vitamin C, biotin, and pantothenic acid, all of which are needed for metabolism and healthy nerves.

Sulfur plays an important part in tissue breathing, the process whereby oxygen and other substances are used to build cells and release energy.

Sulfur Helps Maintain Proper pH Balance

Sulfur also helps to maintain overall body balance between acidity and alkalinity, and works importantly with the liver to excrete bile.

Research indicates that perhaps sulfur's most important health role is in carbohydrate metabolism, which is significant for hypoglycemics and diabetics. (Footnote #20)

Sulfur is a significant component of insulin, the protein hormone secreted by the pancreas that is essential to the metabolism of carbohydrates. A lack of nutritional sulfur in the diet can result in low insulin production.

On the other hand, a diet that contains adequate amounts of sulfur might increase the body's ability to produce insulin to the point where insulin injections can be reduced.

Because nutritional sulfur helps keep skin, hair and nails healthy, it has been referred to as "Nature's Beauty Mineral."


My name is Lisa and I have bad problems with allergies. Whenever pollen is in the air, I will sneeze and wheeze uncontrollably. I started taking the MSM twice daily and in a few days my allergies were under control. I still take the MSM and my allergies just don't seem to bother me anymore.

Here's how it works:

An allergic reaction is simply your body's reaction to something foreign in your system. These foreign proteins and free radicals invade your body and cause reactions and problems. Your body responds with a sneeze, wheeze, swollen, puffy eyes, etc.

When you take MSM, your cells become more permeable, enabling your body to quickly wash out any foreign particles in your system. Every twelve hours your body is designed to flush each cell of any unwanted debris. When your diet is deficient, the cell walls become hard and stiff and this hinders fluid flow through the cell walls.

MSM softens the cell walls, allowing foreign proteins and free radicals to be washed out of your system. If enough MSM is taken, all of the foreign particles can be flushed from your system and your allergies will no longer occur.

Alzheimer�s Disease

My name is Mary and I live in Portland, Oregon. My husband is 72 years old and for the last 6 years I could not communicate with him. He would get lost going from room to room and would forget why he was going there. I cooked, washed, bathed and put him to bed every day for 6 years.

Then I heard about MSM, and how it could help. I gave him about 20 capsules of MSM every day for two weeks. I had him soak in a tub with warm water and 3/4 cup of Clorox for 20 minutes twice a week. It leeched the aluminum out of his system. In two weeks, he was up working in the garden, communicating clearly and going shopping. My husband and I cannot thank MSM enough for getting him mind back in order.

We are now living again thanks to MSM - It really works!

Here's how it works:

The brain is made up of billions of nerve cells, intricately connected with each other like electrons in a electrical circuit. When you think - you send electrical impulses throughout your brain. Alzheimer's disease is a condition where the many of these cells are coated with aluminum, causing them to short circuit and sends brain impulses to the wrong synapse creating confusion.

MSM opens the membrane that contains the aluminum, and allows the unwanted deposits to be flushed into the blood stream. The hot bath with Clorox makes the body sweat and release the aluminum. Then the Clorox leeches it right off your body.


There IS an alternative to slash, burn and poison. I didn�t even know about this alternative until a few weeks ago, and I�ve been doing research in this area for years! It has to do with CHANGING a cancer cell into a non-malignant cell. MSM can do that. The KNIFE is the old, barbaric way.

Your body is creating new cells 24 hours a day. You have white corpuscles running around in your body eating things up like a little Packman.

To protect that new cell from the white corpuscle, your body puts a negative charged protein layer around the new cell, and because the white corpuscle is also a negative charged element, they repel each other. Each new cell contains the complete encyclopedia or DNA of your whole body. I�m talking about a cell that is not yet "differentiated," that is, a cell that has not yet grown into a specialized cell. These are cells that can become any type of cell that the body needs.

If you have a computer and they give 2 manuals, each 3 inches thick, you'd never learn to use the computer. But if I tell you to read pages 10 through 15, you will learn how to use your computer. When your body needs a cell, at the last minute it decides if it needs a kidney, eye, or fingernail cell. The body then tells the cell what pages of the DNA to read and when it takes the place of a dying cell, it begins to function in that capacity.

Once in a while a cell gets old that hasn't been programmed, your body then puts out an enzyme that dissolves the protein layer and a white corpuscle eats and recycles it. If an unprogrammed cell gets away and replaces a dying cell, it can't be replaced until it dies. But it doesn�t know what to do, because it doesn't know which pages of the DNA to read. One cell here and there doesn�t hurt you, but if half your kidney is made up of unprogrammed cells, you're going to die of kidney failure.

Doctors call it a tumor and their answer is to cut out the tumor and throw it away. Well if they cut your arm off and throw it away the body cannot rebuild it. Sew the arm back on and the body will do everything possible to rebuild it, even make new nerves and blood vessels to save the arm.

If the body can get a bad cell to die and a good programmed cell to replace it, you go into remission.

Doctors often use radiation and chemotherapy to kill bad cells. The only problem is those treatments cannot tell the good cells from the bad cells and tears up your whole system.

Laetrile, which is a food, has a cyanide molecule and two sugar molecules. In a healthy area of your body, you put out an enzyme that changes the cyanide to a food and the cells are very happy with it. In a cancerous area, that enzyme is not available so the cancer cells gobble up the cyanide intact and it kills the cell.

So laetrile is very fussy as to which cells it kills. The only problem is, with chemotherapy, radiation, or even laetrile some people go into remission and some people do not. Some people don't do anything and they get a remission. Killing bad cells is treating the symptoms and not the cause.

If you get rid of bad cell, and replace it with another bad cell your treading water and you can't win. You have to work on the other end, where you�re creating nothing but good, healthy programmed cells. Then it doesn�t matter why the old cell dies, you are in remission. That is where getting the glands to put out the right hormones and enzymes are very important so the body will heal itself.

Changing Cancer Into Healthy Cells

A study published in 1986 showed that MSM " was effective in the chemoprevention of . . . mammary cancers." This study has seen no publicity, and only here in this article do you start to find some of the amazing benefits from using MSM on a regular basis. Even though MSM has become very popular in the United States, few if any of those using it have understood the true significance of the cancer preventive benefits. (Footnote #21)

In another study, published in 1988, MSM was proven to greatly reduce the onset of cancer in rats which were deliberately injected with cancer-causing agents. These successful research results are old because there is no incentive to continue them � no profit! (Footnote #22)


We have a natural bacteria, acidophilus, in our stomach that helps digest our food. We also have a yeast that lives in our colon called Candida that keeps bad bacteria out, which lives on the food created by acidophilus. (Footnote #23)

When you take antibiotics, it kills the bad AND THE GOOD bacteria. Your pH then gets out of balance, and the Candida gets hungry and starts spreading.

When it gets into the vagina, women have yeast infections. When the tongue gets a white coating that is Candida yeast. When it gets in the ears and the eyes, they change the name and call it thrush. When it gets in the blood stream, they call it chronic fatigue, "an incurable disease."

There is no such thing or we would have all died 6000 years ago.

When you digest the food and it goes into the bloodstream, the Candida steals it. So you don't assimilate your nutrition, the glands don't get their vitamins and minerals so you develop allergies to foods, pollens and fragrances. You also don't have any energy because the Candida is a living organism and digests food like you do and puts out toxins, like you do that are floating in your blood stream.

When those toxins are added to your own toxins, it can simulate a zillion different diseases that you don't really have. When it simulates strep throat, the doctor gives you an antibiotic and kills the acidophilus, keeping the pH out of balance.

It then simulates pneumonia, . . . the doctor gives you more antibiotics and it then simulates sinus infection. Every three or four weeks, you have a cold or flu and you feel terrible.

This becomes a vicious, painful, and costly cycle. Candida is a living yeast and can turn any bread you eat into blood alcohol.

Blood alcohol is a blood sugar. When the body has adjusted to a high blood sugar content and it suddenly drops, you go into a mood swing like a diabetic and feel terrible. So, you crave bread, cookies, or alcohol to kick up the blood sugar.

This is why bars have so much pretzels, breadsticks and popcorn for their patrons ... it makes them feel good. When they're driving in a car they always have cookies, soda pop and candy at hand or when they're watching TV they surround themselves with junk food.

When you take MSM your pH goes normal. Candida can not live in your body when your pH is normal-except in the colon where it belongs, so the Candida dies out. This is how MSM cures people of Candida. Just that simple.

Candida can turn any bread in your diet into blood alcohol.

Some people can actually eat 4 or 5 pieces of bread and get drunk. The bars have lots of pretzels and breadsticks because it satisfies Candida�s craving for bread and keeps the blood sugar content high.

If enough MSM is taken, the pH becomes normal and Candida can't live anywhere accept in the colon where it belongs. MSM makes it possible for an alcoholic to come down off the alcohol without any of the withdrawal side effects.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

My name is Dr. Roger Bell, I had Carpal Tunnel in my wrists.

I heard that MSM possibly could cure it. By rubbing the MSM mixed with lotion right onto my wrists, it gave me the fastest results.

In two weeks my carpal tunnel was gone and I didn't have to have surgery on my wrists. The MSM saved me from a lot of pain and trouble.



My name is Sylvia, I have had diabetes for several years. It was hard to control -- either too much sugar or not enough.

After 3 months on MSM, I am self-regulating my sugar levels. I am so grateful I stayed with it for the full 3 months. I now take 10 capsules a day, to feel good.

Here�s how it works:

The cells in the body have become rigid and non-permeable.

The insulin carries the blood sugar to your cells but it does not become absorbed because the cell walls are not permeable and they prevent all the blood sugar from getting inside the cell.

The pancreas works hard and fast to compensate for the deficiency, but becomes injured and stops working correctly. The blood sugars that are not being used saturate the blood stream, creating a high level of blood sugar. By taking MSM regularly, your cells become permeable and the pancreas begins to be repaired.

The blood sugars are now being absorbed through cell walls and the body becomes healthier. After a few months on MSM, the pancreas should become self-regulating, balancing your sugar levels.


My name is Betty, I had diverticulosis. I took five capsules of MSM twice daily (morning and night). The pain went away and I did not have to go to the doctor. I will continue to use MSM as I do not want to see my doctor again, and God knows I love him.

Here's how it works:

MSM is an anti-parasite. Hook worms, tape worms, and pin-worms hang on to the pockets in the colon. MSM fills in the pockets and leaves a natural Teflon-like coating that they can't cling on to. As the worms hatch they flush out, preventing diverticulosis and constipation.


My name is John Booth and I live in Portland Oregon.

I worked in the shipyards as a welder down in the hull and smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day. I got what doctors call emphysema, I was coughing and hurting most the time.

I started taking MSM and after a year I have strong lungs that allow me to breathe easily. The MSM made it possible for me to continue on with my work and my life. (Footnote #24)

Here's how it works:

Emphysema is not caused by smoking. Dogs get it, horses get it, and they never smoke. But the smoking burns the tissues in the lungs so that the cells are dying faster than the body is able to replace the new cells.

Think of it in terms of making concrete: one guy brings water, one guy brings sand, and the another guy brings the cement.

You have what you need to make concrete, but the guy bringing the cement keeps taking a break because his feet hurt.

The final mixture or product you have is adobe and not concrete.

When cells are dying in a hurry and you're not giving your body enough building materials, you start losing the flexibility in the lungs and they tear. If this happens too often, and you still don't provide the necessary building materials, you start to build a type of scar tissue.

MSM gives your body the building materials it needs to make good flexible cells and strong lungs, with the ability to expand and contract freely. It also helps sore and tired feet.

20 Minute Hangover

My name is Kathleen, I was very sick with a bad hangover, a fun night out ended with a crash.

I heard about MSM and how it flushes alcohol and other toxins out of your system and decided to try it. I took thirty capsules and in about 20 minutes I felt fine; the hangover crashed and burned, not me.

That was a large number of capsules, but it was sure worth it!

Here's how it works:

When you drink alcohol it gets into your cells and is trapped preventing oxygen from getting in.

The cells die of oxygen starvation, causing you to feel ill.

MSM makes the cell walls permeable so that the alcohol can be flushed out, along with other toxins, and oxygen can get in. Your body will begin to feel better and the hangover will be gone in a very short time (approximately 20 minutes).

Chronic Headaches

My name is Dr. JoAnn Cain and I live in Santa Monica, California. Once a week I either had a headache or was continuously building up to or recovering from a headache.

I started taking MSM twice daily and have done so for the past six months. I have not had a headache since I started.

Here's how it works:

MSM helps to make the cell walls more permeable which increases circulation. By increasing circulation there is less build up of pressure and in effect less pain. Taking the MSM regularly will help maintain good circulation and low pressure.


Dr. Hannon Wapaca at Lahoya was a hypoglycemic and was afraid she was going to lose her big toe through gangrene. She takes MSM daily and feels better.

The last time we heard from her she had nearly forgotten all about the toe not because it was gone but because it quit hurting and was completely healed after a few days on the MSM.

Here's how it works:

The cells in the body have become rigid and non-permeable. There is too much insulin carrying blood sugars to your cells. The blood sugars do not get used because the cell walls are not permeable and the cells do not absorb the blood sugar.

There is more insulin than blood sugars in the blood stream, so the body believes it needs more sugars. It really does! You then have low blood sugars and have a low or bad mood swing. By taking MSM regularly your cells become permeable.

The blood sugars are now being absorbed by the cells and the body becomes healthier. After a few months on MSM the pancreas should be producing insulin at a normal rate.

Muscle Soreness and Lactic Acid

My name is Jack, I work out every day in the gym. Ordinarily I get sore muscles after I work out. I use MSM in large amounts (20 capsules) before I work out and my muscles do not get sore any.

Here's how it works:

The MSM prevents the crystallization and build up of lactic acid. The MSM flushes the lactic acid out, along with all the other bad toxins in your system.

By taking large amounts of MSM, more toxins that cause soreness are flushed out of your system. Remember, lactic acid is nothing more than a toxin, and can be detoxified just like any other toxin in the body � by MSM.

Pain and Inflammation

My name is Bob, I am a professional ball player. Because I over extended my joints while training, I had bad inflammation in my knees.

I took ten capsules of MSM.

Literally in a few hours I had tremendous relief of the pain. After continuing to take ten capsules twice a day (morning and evening) over a short period of time, the swelling in my knees went down and I could see my knee caps again. MSM saved my career.

Because of the MSM I have mobility, agility, and feel much better.

Here's how it works:

MSM works on pain. Think of a cell as a balloon full of water but instead of being made of rubber it's made of protein.

When the protein is tough the water pressure inside the cell can become much greater than the water pressure outside the cell, and this causes inflammation or inflating of the cell.

This is where most pain comes from. Aspirin shuts the nerve off but the cell is still damaged. MSM effects the protein so that the water freely flows through the cell wall, taking toxins out and getting more nutrition in.

That is why a person with emphysema and asthma experience immediate relief. The cells� flexibility enables more oxygen and nutrition to get inside the cell.


My name is Joan I used to have cramps and nausea every month. I started taking MSM capsules two times a day. Five capsules in the morning and in the night for two months. Now I do not have the cramps and nausea any more. I take five capsules a day, and I feel good.

Here's how it works:

MSM helps the glands maintain a normal level of production. The normal level of enzymes, acids, and hormones, allows the body to go in and out of the cycle smoothly eliminating the cramps, headaches and nausea that come with the monthly cycle.

Water Retention Due To Weak Kidneys

My name is Mr. Jones, my kidneys were not working right and caused by legs to retain water.

My legs were swollen so badly that I was unable to fit in my shoes. I was introduced to MSM and began taking five capsules daily (a.m. - p.m.). Within a few days my kidneys began working right and the swelling was reduced to normal.

Because of this I know MSM really works!

Here's how it works:

The kidneys start slowing down due to some bad cells. The MSM gives the body the building blocks it needs to make good cells. The bad cells are replaced by good ones so the kidneys start working again. By fixing the kidney, the body will cure itself of the water retention and the problem is solved.

MSM, an odorless essentially tasteless, white crystalline chemical, demonstrates usefulness as a dietary supplement in men and lower animals.

Our research suggests that a minimum concentration in the body may be critical to both normal function and structure. Limited studies suggest that the systemic concentration of MSM drops in mammals with increasing age.

This may be due to dietary habits where one ingests foods with lower MSM potential with maturity or possibly there is a change in the renal threshold. Healthy juvenile rabbits maintain a level at or above 1 ppm [part per million] body weight, with milk being the dominant food and source. Cow's milk normally contains between 2 and 6 ppm MSM, dependent on source and freshness.

In an adult man, the circulating concentration varies but may average about 0.20 - 0.25 ppm. We have no estimate of total body concentration as yet, but suspect that MSM is banked in some of the organs, other than the adrenals.

Based on radiolabel (35 S) studies, the residence time of a single challenge in mammals may be several weeks with gradual dumping via the renal system. Daily output of urine contains several milligrams of MSM. This possibly is not the dominant excretory route. The following abnormal conditions seen in the clinic have responded to oral MSM generally administered at dosage levels of 250-270 mg/day. (Footnote #25)

Response to allergy:

Oral MSM moderates diverse allergic responses as to pollen and foods. Antiallergy medication and dissemination methods may be sharply reduced.

Control of hyperacidity:

Subjects that are chronic users of various antacids and histamine H2 receptor antagonists prefer MSM by reason of relief obtained coupled with freedom from serious, untoward effects.

Hypersensitivity to drugs:

Subjects demonstrating drug hypersensitivity to aspirin, several nonsterioid antiarthritic agents (Naprosy, Indocin, Motria), and oral antibiotics, were drug tolerant when MSM was given within an hour before or concurrent with the sensitizing drug

Control of constipation:

Particularly in the older population seen in our clinic, chronic constipation can be a medical problem of concern.

To date, over 50 subjects presenting chronic constipation have gained prompt and continuing relief by supplementing the diet with 100 to 500 mg of MSM per day.

We have seen some individuals with severely restricted lung function. Of these, only a few cooperated in vital function assessments.

All cooperated in endurance measurements. Limited objective and strong subjective evidence suggests that MSM is a useful dietary supplement to reduce lung dysfunction.

Anti-parasitic action:

In vitro and in vivo tests suggest MSM has an activity against a variety of medically important parasitic tracts, MSM, for example, is active against Giardia, Trichomondads, and round worms.

MSM presents a blocking interface between host and parasite. We are at present evaluating the action of MSM with a variety of abnormal or medical problems to determine whether any are responsive to a diet supplemented by MSM.

We are intrigued by the fact that MSM is a contestant factor in all normal diets of vertebrates and somewhat mystified by the seeming need of the body of adults for a concentration level above that available from a diet presumed as normal.

We hope soon to have data defining any specific interacting role that MSM may have with the water-soluble vitamins, particularly Vitamin C, which like MSM is reportedly banked in the adrenals. (Footnote #26)

It is not possible to directly compare DMSO and derivative MSM, though of the same chemical family.

Each is unique unto itself. MSM is a dietary factor derivable from most natural foods. It is conveniently taken alone or in foods. Taken by mouth, there is no after-breath.

DMSO has certain unpleasant attributes not possessed by MSM. While MSM is a dietary factor, DMSO is not. DMSO readily penetrates the dermas and less complicated membrane systems while MSM does not. Each contributes to the well being of mankind, but in differing ways. Both have important implications.


Saved For The End

One more bit of personal history. Many years ago I was personally involved in a project aimed at reducing smog caused by cars burning gasoline.

At the time I learned, to my amazement, that much of the smog was caused by an ingredient in gasoline that was actually the waste matter from bacteria that lived in crude oil. These amazing bugs actually live in the crude oil and can LIVE through the extremely high temperatures of crude oil refining, where crude oil is turned into gasoline. They live in your gasoline tank, and the gas companies put all sorts of "bactericides" into gasoline to kill them.

These bugs don�t require oxygen to live!

They eat sulfur! Crude oil contains a lot of sulfur. The bugs love it!

There is much more to tell you here, but I learned this, and forgot it, and re-learned it just this week. There are actually life-forms, small bacteria, that don�t require oxygen, can live in extremely high temperature situations, and eat sulfur in order to grow. As they eat this sulfur, they release waste products which, in a loose sense, become part of something called the "planetary sulfur cycle."

Planetary sulfur actually RECYCLES from the ocean to the sky and falls as rain, only to go back into the ocean to start the cycle again.

That�s a big subject, but I want you to know that there are those sulfur-eating bugs, eating sulfur, and that eventually their waste products go up into the sky and fall down on you as rain � containing, believe it or not: MSM! Finally, you see part of the title of this article. If you would stand out in the rain, you would soak up some MSM. Stay inside and you don�t get it!

The sulfur cycle also involves microscopic plants, plankton, living in the ocean. These plants "eat" the inorganic sulfur in the ocean water, and then release sulfur as part of their natural process of life. This sulfur escapes from the ocean water into the atmosphere, and rises to the upper altitudes where it meets with the ozone and ultraviolet light. These convert the sulfur (which was in the form of dimethylsufide) into MSM and DMSO, both of which are very soluble in water, and thus they RAIN down upon us.

Plants absorb these two different forms of sulfur very quickly. Eventually, these forms of sulfur are returned to less soluble forms, get washed back to the ocean and the cycle begins again, with the plankton "eating" these sulfur rocks, and feeding us MSM in our rain.

It is a remarkable process, and little appreciated. So, indeed, we have MSM falling on us every time it rains, but we don�t get enough of it because we insist on staying out of the rain, and cooking our food.

I�ve placed a brief glimpse of one of those related scientific reports on this in the footnote. (See Footnote #28)


This page contains the footnotes for the previous eight pages.

1. Officially, this substance has about the same toxicity as water. Salt is more toxic than MSM!

2. The first line of an abstract from the study by E. N. Spremulli and D. L. Dexter, appearing in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, in March 1984. To be found in the Medlines database with the unique identifier of 84137891. Further reference and quotes are included elsewhere in this article.

3. The medical dictionary does define it with fancier terms: an aggregation of similarly specialized cells united in the performance of a particular function. [Dorland�s Illustrated Medical Dictionary]

4. Benign: not malignant; not recurrent; favorable for recovery. [Dorland�s]

5. From the Spremulli Research Report referenced above: It has been known for many decades that certain murine and human cancers can spontaneously mature to benign tissue. These observations have stimulated investigators to attempt to induce a state of more normal or benign differentiation in cancer cells using biologic substances or chemicals. Polar solvents including dimethylsulfoxide [DMSO], dimethylformamide, and monomethylformamide have proven to be good inducers of maturational events in murine and human cancer cells. Moreover, several laboratories have demonstrated that polar solvents inhibit the growth of human tumor xenografts in nude mice. These findings have resulted in the entry of monomethylformamide into phase I clinical trials in America and Europe. Preclinical work further suggests that polar solvents may be useful agents in combination with conventional treatment modalities. The use of drugs such as monomethylformamide that can convert neoplastic cells to benign cells rather than kill the tumor cells represents an important conceptual departure from standard cytotoxic chemotherapy. The use of maturational-agent therapy should be considered as an important new development in the design of cancer treatment protocols.

6. Another is N Acetyl Cysteine, NAC, the main ingredient in my newly designed "super oral chelation" formula. If you want more information about this substance, click here.

7. MSM stands for Methyl Sulfonyl Methane, sometimes written as Methylsulfonylmethane.

8. Some people are fond of throwing around these fancy words. I apologize for having to include them. You may or may not have heard of DMSO. Those letters stand for dimethylsulfoxide. DMSO has been well popularized for years, but the full name is hardly ever used. There are literally hundreds of good research reports on DMSO. Click here to see some. There are several good ones about MSM, but not nearly as many as there are for DMSO. You can think of MSM as the same thing as DMSO but with an added oxygen atom. In fact, MSM COULD be called DMSO2, because there is an extra oxygen atom connected to the molecule. So, think of MSM as being an oxygen-enriched form of DMSO. Nature produces this substance, naturally, but it took some real engineering to be able to "manufacture" it. There may be some secret to that, and there are claims of "patents," but the patents that are promoted in connection with MSM have nothing to do with how the stuff is made. They have only to do with how it is used! Dr. Jacob�s associate, Dr. Robert Herschler, got several patents for these nutritional claims. As an example of how simple a patent can be, here is the actual legal language from the patent:

Patent Number 4,296,130: Preparations containing methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) for administration to the skin, nails, other tissue and/or body fluids of a human or other animal subject are disclosed. Such compositions soften skin, strengthen nails and provide other benefits when applied topically

Default MSM

Hi Arrowin,

Loved the article and as I read it, I thought you wrote it until I went back to the top of the page again.

In my readings and so called 'research', I had come to the conclusion that the liver does put excess toxins into fat cells, just as your article says.

When I was taking msm, 1/2 teaspoon which equated to 5000mgs, the only changes I noticed was the frequent visits to the bathroom. Lots of urine.

It was interesting to read of using msm for pain management. Instead of Excedrin tonight, I will take some msm to see if my headache will go away.

The detox effect of msm has been known to me for about four years but I had stopped taking it.

My latest experiment has been with EDTA chelation. I had dramatic results with EDTA. I had groin pain when walking which I attributed to intermittant claudification. After 3 days of taking EDTA, the pain was gone and I could walk without my legs giving out. The article mentions a drug high and I'm wondering if that is what I got from the EDTA. Hmmmm. I sure did feel better and even tho I have stopped taking the EDTA, I'm still feeling the benefit. My legs haven't felt this good in years, and, when I work, the rest time is now only maybe 15 minutes intead of the hours it used to take to get up enough energy to go back to my task.

I'm off to take some msm. Thanks for posting this article, lots of valuable information in it.
