We’ve been experimenting with DMSO-based formulas over at JPT Wellness Circle for a couple of years now  – you may have already seen my Quad-Synergy Pathogen Protocol on this blog.

DMSO is dimethyl sulfoxide – a natural substance derived from tree bark. But it has some pretty amazing characteristics that make it a potent healing tool. Of course since it is a very potent substance, you need to be careful handling it, since it transports into the cells pretty much any substance it comes in contact with. Here’s a few nuggets about DMSO:

* After application, anywhere on the body, you can taste DMSO on the tip of your tongue within 30 seconds – it travels through the bloodstream that fast.

* DMSO binds to free radicals and forms a substance (dimethyl sulfone plus water with the hydroxyl ion) that is readily excreted through urine.

* DMSO substitutes for water, so it pulls substances through cells that ordinarily would not move through them. The DMSO-water bond is 1.3 times stronger than the water-water bond.

* DMSO is readily absorbed via topical (skin) or oral application. However absorption is even better from the GI tract (oral).

So, what does all this have to do with anal stenosis, internal hemorrhoids and rectal strictures? Well, since the 60’s, DMSO has also been used with burn patients, since it dissolves scar tissue so well. When mixed with potassium iodide (SSKI), it also heals hemorrhoids – usually within 1 week.

Over at LTYG Wellness Circle, we have been testing a mixture of DMSO, potassium iodide (SSKI) and aloe vera and have been getting great results with both internal hemorrhoids and anal strictures.

Monica (not her real name) had a stricture in her rectum (just above her internal anal sphincter muscle), the opening was so narrow she could no longer defecate. Her doctor did not want to stretch it because he said it would just worsen the problem. This is true – if you stretch, cut or otherwise damage scar tissue, the body just repairs it by making more scar tissue!

Hence people often have their strictures dilated on a regular basis and people who have had sphincterectomies, or laser removal of scar tissue may either have the same problem recur in a few years, or they are left fecal incontinent from the procedure. Hint: when you look at the research on these procedures, don’t just look at one year outcomes, look at 10 year outcomes/assessments.

Anyway, Monica’s doctor confirmed by sigmoidoscopy that she had a stricture about one inch in length, most likely the result of her proctitis. So Monica – an admirable guinea pig – took a glass dropper, flipped her legs over her head every night and squeezed 15 drops of 70% DMSO into her rectum. She did this every night for 2 months. Then she went for a colonoscopy and her doctor confirmed what she already knew – the stricture was completely gone and there was absolutely no sign that it had ever been there. Because she used straight DMSO, Monica says she experienced some discomfort initially, but nothing too major. She says she also used my Healing Visualization mp3 for strictures and believes tha
