Supporters of DMSO have long supported the claim that it can cause cancerous cells to become noncancerous, or benign, and can slow or stop the progress of cancer in the bladder, colon, ovary, breast, and skin. Some evidence even suggests it is useful in treating leukemia, and it has also been used as a part of some metabolic cancer therapies.
DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide) was first discovered in the mid- to late nineteenth century. In the 1950s, it was discovered that DMSO could protect cells from the damage of freezing. In the 1960s, Dr. Stanley Jacob, one of the main proponents of DMSO, began to study other medicinal properties of the substance. In the 1970s, DMSO was approved for use as an anti-inflammatory treatment in dogs and horses and as a prescription drug for a type of bladder inflammation in humans.
If orthodox medicine were truly interested in curing cancer, don't you think they would look for a way to target cancer cells with the intent of killing them while sparing normal cells?
Chemotherapy does not target cancer cells, and because of this, chemotherapy:
1) Kills far more normal cells than cancer cells, and
2) Damages and toxifies many of the normal cells that do survive.
If a "magic bullet" were used FIRST by orthodox medicine, meaning the cut/burn/slash/poison treatments were avoided, a 90% true cure rate would be easy to achieve. But the fact of the matter is that the leaders in the medical community have absolutely no interest in finding a "magic bullet." A "magic bullet" would cost the drug companies hundreds of billions of dollars, patients would have less hospitalization, less doctor visits, etc. The fact is, no one wants a "magic bullet" to be found. The evidence that this is true is that two "magic bullets" are already known to exist, but no one is using them except for a handful of doctors.
What Causes Cancer?
Most people believe that it is DNA damage that causes cancer. While in rare situations, DNA can have a negative affect on a person's immune system, DNA normally has absolutely nothing to do with the development of cancer.
The fact is that cancer is caused by a special type of microbe which gets inside of normal cells and turns the cells cancerous.
Cancer is an invading disease that attacks the body’s immune system. Once detected, cancer has already had enough time to establish its web network. Treating the tumor is not good enough--it is only the start.
Actually, everyone has cancer cells forming in their body at all times. The immune system generally safely kills them. However, this means that a weakened immune system, and many other things, can allow cancer cells to overcome the immune system. But the actual formation of cancer cells is exclusively caused by microbes which get inside of normal cells.
Dr. Royal Rife did an enormous amount of research into the relationship between microbes and cancer in the 1930s. He would inject mice with a virus and in 100% of the cases the mice would get cancer.
Dr. Rife proposed a cure for cancer which did nothing but kill the viruses/microbes which were inside of the cancer cells. His cure was 100% successful. However, note that his cure had no intention of killing cancer cells or fixing DNA (which had not been discovered in the 1930s); its only goal was to kill microbes which were both inside and outside of the cancer cells. Once the microbes were dead the cancer cells were able to revert back into normal, differentiated cells.
Dr. Rife was well aware that the critial microbes which needed to be killed were inside the cancer cells. The electromedicine device he used killed microbes inside and outside of cancer cells.
But almost all natural substances do not normally get inside of cells, thus it is almost impossible for natural substances to kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. Natural substances can kill cancer cells and build the immune system, but they generally cannot kill microbes inside the cancer cells.
There is no single cure for treating cancer; cancer must be approached and treated holistically. The cellular process in developing cancer takes many years--with the exception of high radiation or other toxic exposure, a compromised immunity and cell damage does not happen overnight. Treatment must be approached defensively and directly; focus on the cause and do not treat cancer in reverse. Target your treatment mentally and physically from the very origin.
You might ask your oncologist why your chances of survival are only 3% (ignoring all of their statistical gibberish such as "5-year survival rates" and deceptive terms like "remission" and "response"), when your chance of survival would be over 90% if they used DMSO.
It would be better for medical doctors to treat cancer patients with the right treatment than to have patients treat themselves at home. Medical doctors can diagnose better, treat better, watch for developing problems better, etc. Unfortunately, doctors are using treatments that have been chosen solely on the basis of their profitability rather than their effectiveness.
DMSO is a highly non-toxic, 100% natural product that comes from the wood industry. But of course, like so many other potential cancer cures, the discovery was buried. DMSO, being a natural product, cannot be patented and cannot be made profitable because it is produced by the ton in the wood industry. The only side-effect of using DMSO in humans is body odor (which varies from patient to patient).
The FDA took note of the effectiveness of DMSO at treating pain and made it illegal for medical uses in order to protect the profits of the aspirin companies (in those days aspirin was used to treat arthritis). Thus, it must be sold today as a "solvent." Few people can grasp the concept that government agencies are organized for the sole purpose of being the "police force" of large, corrupt corporations.
While it is generally believed that orthodox medicine and modern corrupt politicians persecute alternative medicine, this is not technically correct. What they do is persecute ANY cure for cancer, it doesn't matter whether it is orthodox or alternative. The proof of this is DMSO. It appears that orthodox medicine persecutes alternative medicine only because there are far more alternative cancer treatments that can cure cancer than orthodox treatments.
Another substance that targets cancer cells is being researched at Purdue University and other places: folic acid. This too will be buried unless it can lead to more profitable cancer treatments.
But alternative medicine is rightfully not interested in combining DMSO with chemotherapy. DMSO will combine with many substances, grab them, and drag them into cancer cells. It will also blast through the blood-brain barrier like it wasn't even there.
DMSO has been combined successfully with hydrogen peroxide (e.g. see Donsbach), cesium chloride, MSM (though it may not bind to MSM), and other products.
DMSO - Vitamin C Treatment
Vitamin C is so simlar to glucose, that cells, and especially cancer cells, consume vitamin C the same way they would consume glucose.
Cancer cells are anaerobic obligates, which means they depend upon glucose as their primary source of metabolic fuel. Cancer cells employ transport mechanisms called glucose transporters to actively pull in glucose.
In the vast majority of animals, vitamin C is synthesized from glucose in only four metabolic steps. Hence, the molecular shape of vitamin C is remarkably similar to glucose. Cancer cells will actively transport vitamin C into themselves, possibly because they mistake it for glucose. Another plausible explanation is that they are using the vitamin C as an antioxidant. Regardless, the vitamin C accumulates in cancer cells.
If large amounts of vitamin C are presented to cancer cells, large amounts will be absorbed. In these unusually large concentrations, the antioxidant vitamin C will start behaving as a pro-oxidant as it interacts with intracellular copper and iron. This chemical interaction produces small amounts of hydrogen peroxide.
Because cancer cells are relatively low in an intracellular anti-oxidant enzyme called catalase, the high dose vitamin C induction of peroxide will continue to build up until it eventually lyses the cancer cell from the inside out! This effectively makes high dose IVC a non-toxic chemotherapeutic agent that can be given in conjunction with conventional cancer treatments. Based on the work of several vitamin C pioneers before him, Dr. Riordan was able to prove that vitamin C was selectively toxic to cancer cells if given intravenously. This research was recently reproduced and published by Dr. Mark Levine at the National Institutes of Health.
As feared by many oncologists, small doses may actually help the cancer cells because small amounts of vitamin C may help the cancer cells arm themselves against the free-radical induced damage caused by chemotherapy and radiation. Only markedly higher doses of vitamin C will selectively build up as peroxide in the cancer cells to the point of acting in a manner similar to chemotherapy. These tumor-toxic dosages can only be obtained by intravenous administration.
Over a span of 15 years of vitamin C research, Dr. Riordan's RECNAC (cancer spelled backwards) research team generated 20 published papers on vitamin C and cancer. RECNAC even inspired its second cancer research institute, known as RECNAC II, at the University of Puerto Rico. This group recently published an excellent paper in Integrative Cancer Therapies, titled "Orthomolecular Oncology Review: Ascorbic Acid and Cancer 25 Years Later." RECNAC data has shown that vitamin C is toxic to tumor cells without sacrificing the performance of chemotherapy.
Intravenous vitamin C also does more than just kill cancer cells. It boosts immunity. It can stimulate collagen formation to help the body wall off the tumor. It inhibits hyaluronidase, an enzyme that tumors use to metastasize and invade other organs throughout the body. It induces apoptosis to help program cancer cells into dying early. It corrects the almost universal scurvy in cancer patients. Cancer patients are tired, listless, bruise easily, and have a poor appetite. They don't sleep well and have a low threshold for pain. This adds up to a very classic picture of scurvy that generally goes unrecognized by their conventional physicians.
Because cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells, under the right conditions, cancer cells should consume 15 times more vitamin C than a normal cell. While normal cells benefit from vitamin C, the microbes inside of the cancer cells may be killed by vitamin C. It is microbes which are inside of the cancer cells which cause cancer and which force a cancer cell to remain cancerous.
It should be mentioned that two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, and an associate, Dr. Ewan Cameron, M.D., were able to extend the lives of cancer patients more than 10-fold using only 10 grams of vitamin C a day by I.V.
This protocol will modify the Pauling/Cameron protocol four different ways:
1) It will include DMSO in the evening dose to help Vitamin C target cancer cells and get inside of cancer cells,
2) It includes a very, very low glucose diet so that the cancer cells will feast on Vitamin C instead of glucose,
3) It includes 15% or less potassium ascorbate, which has a special affinity for cancer cells,
4) It will include as little sodium ascorbate (or other sodium forms of Vitamin C) as possible because these types of Vitamin C do not get inside of cancer cells very well.
Regarding the use of potassium ascorbate, a foundation in Italy has proven that potassium ascorbate can be used to cure cancer (WARNING: no more than 15% of the Vitmain C you take should be a potassium version!!). See: Pantellini Foundation (Italy)
WARNING: Do NOT use potassium ascorbate or any other form of potassium as your primary source of Vitamin C!!! If you use potassium ascorbate work with the vendor of this product to insure you are taking safe doses relative to non-potassium forms of Vitamin C!!! If your vendor does not make a recommendation, then use 15% as the maximum portion of Vitamin C that is a potassium form!!
The second thing this treatment uses is DMSO. DMSO is used to "open" the ports on the cancer cells to assist getting vitamin C inside the cancer cells. DMSO is very well known to target cancer cells and open their ports. To better understand this concept see this article
In summary, there are three things that help get the vitamin C inside the cancer cells:
1) Cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells and cancer cells cannot tell the difference between glucose and vitamin C.
2) The use of potassium ascorbate as a part of the Vitamin C protocol.
3) The use of DMSO.
A fourth unique thing about this protocol is the "cancer diet." The cancer diet for this treatment focuses on a LOW GLUCOSE cancer diet. In this way, the cancer cells have less glucose to interfere with their consumption of vitamin C!
Possible Swelling and Inflammation
There are two possible results when large amounts of vitamin C get inside of a cancer cell. First, the vitamin C can kill the microbe(s) inside the cancer cell and the cell will safely revert into a normal cell; or second, the vitamin C can kill the cancer cell itself.
While the first of these two options will not cause any swelling or inflammation, the second option may cause swelling and inflammation.
For this reason, anyone on this protocol who would be put at risk by swelling and/or inflammation (e.g. in a tumor), should carefully and slowly build-up to the theraputic dose of vitamin C, watching carefully for any potential swelling or inflammation.
Details of the Treatment
Many people have difficulties working with DMSO. In some cases, when taken transdermally (through the skin) there is a skin rash which is simply too severe to continue the treatment. When you get your bottle of DMSO put one drop on your skin, spread it around a little bit and see if you have an allergic reaction (i.e. severe rash). If not, an hour later put 10 drops on your skin and spread it thin.
If you do have a reaction, you may still be able to take the DMSO orally (added to 4 ounces of water). But if you cannot take the DMSO orally, and you have a skin reaction to the DMSO, you will have to abandon this treatment.
If you want to know more about DMSO, see this website:
The Importance of the DMSO
This treatment uses DMSO (in the evening) and vitamin C (twice a day). The theory of this treatment is that the DMSO will be used first (in the evening dose), either taken orally (with water) or transdermally (through the skin). In about 10 minutes the DMSO will have targeted the cancer cells and will start "opening up" their ports.
In the evening dose, about ten minutes after taking the DMSO, the vitamin C will be taken with water. When the vitamin C gets to the cancer cells the cells natural affinity for consuming vitamin C (because the cancer cells "think" the vitamin C is glucose) should be enhanced by the fact that the cancer cells have been "opened up" by DMSO.
The theory is that the DMSO will allow a larger concentration of vitamin C to get inside the cancer cells than would normally occur.
As already mentioned, once vitamin C can get inside of a cancer cell the cell may revert into a normal cell or it may be killed. If enough cancer cells are killed, some swelling may occur.
The Vitamin C To Be Used **VERY Important**
There are several different types of vitamin C. The most common type of vitmain C is ascorbic acid, which is not bound to a mineral. This type of vitamin C is largely useless until it has bound to minerals already in the body.
The ideal vitamin C product will have both ascorbic acid, no more than 15% potassium ascorbate or potassium carbonate and other forms of mineral ascorbates or carbonates or other forms of Vitamin C.
Since sodium is generally found outside of cells and potassium is generally found inside of cells, to get vitamin C inside of cells it is best to use a potassium ascorbate. However, for safety reasons, most of the Vitamin C cannot be a potassium version of Vitamin C (talk to your vendor). If you can avoid sodium ascorbate and use some other non-potassium form of Vitamin C (e.g. ascorbic acid) use it.
Some buffered vitamin C products have ascorbic acid and several different kinds of mineral ascorbates or carbonates (e.g. zinc carbonate). This is good, but it may be necessary to add some potassium ascorbate to get the percentage of potassium up to 15% (or whatever maximum your potassium vendor tells you). Include as little sodium ascorbate as possible.
The DMSO and Vitamin C Protocol
This treatment will be taken twice a day.
The morning dose will only include Vitamin C. Remember to take VERY LITTLE glucose during this treatment!!
The evening treatment will include two phases.
In the evening, Phase One will be 1 TEAspoon of DMSO, taken orally or transdermally or some combination thereof.
Phase Two of the evening dose should follow Phase One by 10 minutes and will consist of 5 grams of vitamin C taken orally in water.
The Morning Dose - Vitamin C Only
The morning dose, which should be taken about twelve hours before the evening dose, should contain 5 grams of vitamin C. Fifteen percent or less (or whatever your potassium vendor tells you) should be a form of potassium carbonate (or some other potassium version of Vitamin C). The other eighty-five percent should contain zero potassium Vitamin C and as little sodium Vitamin C as possible.
The Evening Dose (DMSO and Vitamin C): Phase One: Taking the DMSO
The DMSO used in this protocol should be at least 99% pure DMSO mixed with 30% water. In other words, you should buy "70/30" DMSO, which means 70% pure DMSO and 30% water. Some DMSO vendors sell DMSO Gel or DMSO Liquid.
The amount of DMSO taken during this treatment is so low that normally it can be taken orally if it is mixed with 4 ounces of water. However, if for any reason the DMSO cannot be taken orally it can be spread over the skin (such as the arms, legs or stomach) and taken transdermally (through the skin).
The DMSO should be put in a glass of water before taking it orally. The glass of water should have at least 4 ounces of water in it!
The Evening Dose:
1a DMSO Orally) If you are taking the DMSO orally, put 4 ounces of a quality bottled water in a glass. Then put ONE TEAspoon of DMSO in the water. Drink the water (and thus the DMSO).
Because the DMSO may cause stomach irritation, you may want to build up to the theraputic dose of DMSO. For example, you might use the following build-up:
Day 1 - Evening) Use 1/4 TEAspoon of DMSO in 4 ounces of water,
Day 2 - Evening) Use 1/2 TEAspoon of DMSO in 4 ounces of water,
Day 3 - Evening) Use 3/4 TEAspoon of DMSO in 4 ounces of water,
Day 4 - Evening) Use 1 TEAspoon of DMSO in 4 ounces of water,
Day 5 - Evening) Continue using the 1 TEAspoon of DMSO in 4 ounces of water.
1b - DMSO Transdermally) If you are taking the DMSO transdermally (through the skin), put ONE TEAspoon of DMSO on your arms, legs or stomach (as close to the cancer as possible). Spread the DMSO very thin (i.e. over a wide area of skin). Ten minutes after spreading the DMSO on the skin, and AFTER the DMSO has penetrated the skin (and the skin is dry), you can put a skin cream on where you rubbed the DMSO to prevent a rash.
The Evening Dose: Phase Two: Taking the Vitamin C
The evening dose, which should be taken about ten minutes after taking the DMSO, should contain 5 grams of vitamin C. Fifteen percent or less (or whatever your potassium vendor tells you) should be a form of potassium carbonate (or some other potassium version of Vitamin C). The other eighty-five percent should contain no potassium Vitamin C and as little sodium Vitamin C as possible. (Of course, the vitamin C may be pre-mixed).
Here is one highly recommended potassium vitamin C vendor (Fifteen percent or LESS of the Vitamin C should be a potassium version unless your vendor of potassium ascorbate tells you differently):
Excellent Buffered Vitamin C Product
One rounded teaspoon contains 4 grams of absorbic acid and 700 mg of potassium ascorbate. It also has zero mg of sodium (which is ideal). The ideal product will have potassium ascorbate without sodium ascorbate, but with other forms of Vitamin C.
As with all vitamin C products, keep this product out of the reach of children! It can be very dangerous if very high doses are taken.
If you have a type of cancer which could lead to a dangerous situation if swelling and inflammation resulted from this treatment, SLOWLY build up the dose of Vitamin C.
For example, you might use the following build-up (for both morning and evening):
Day 1) Use 1/4 TEAspoon of vitamin C, in 6 ounces of water
Day 2) Use 1/2 TEAspoon of vitamin C, in 6 ounces of water
Day 3) Use 3/4 TEAspoon of vitamin C, in 6 ounces of water
Day 4) Use 1 level TEAspoon of vitamin C, in 6 ounces of water
Day 5) Start the full treatment at full doses
If you experience any potentially dangerous swelling or inflammation during any of the days, DISCONTINUE THIS TREATMENT.
The Cancer Diet
Any time you use a protocol which is designed to kill microbes it is very, very critical to avoid eating foods and drinks which feed or excite the microbes. This includes cancer because cancer is a microbial disease.
An acidic diet of foods and drinks will make this protocol less effective because microbes will breed much faster and be more aggressive in the presence of an acidic diet. In other words, the microbes will breed faster than you can kill them!! This includes the microbes which are inside the cancer cells.
What this means is that without a solid "cancer diet" there is no way this cancer protocol, or any other cancer protocol, is going to be effective!! The "cancer diet" is also the number one way to stop the spreading of cancer!!
An alkaline diet includes, among other things:
1) ZERO sugar,
2) ZERO white flour,
3) ZERO soda pops (even diet soda pops are forbidden),
4) ZERO meat,
5) ZERO dairy products (except cottage cheese during the Budwig Diet)
After eliminating all the foods that feed or excite microbes, what is left over is basically whole foods, non-sugar fruit and vegetable drinks and other healthy foods and drinks.
Also, for this protocol, pay extra attention to avoiding anything with sugar, glucose, etc. in it (you do not have to worry about whole foods).
Remember this is not only an alkaline diet but also a low-glucose diet.
See this article (you may need to modify this diet to avoid glucose not in whole foods): Cancer Diet article
Other Comments About the Protocol
Starting 45 minutes before taking either the morning or evening treatment, until 45 minutes after taking the vitamin C, you should not eat any foods or take any other supplements. The reason is that the DMSO will open-up the cancer cells and the vitamin C should have as little competition as possible to get inside the cancer cells.
In taking the evening treatment the DMSO is taken first, and the vitamin C is taken 10 minutes AFTER the DMSO is taken.
Thus, the MORNING schedule may look like this:
0800 - 5 grams of vitamin C mixed in 6 ounces of water (with 15% or less a potassium Vitamin C)
2000 (8 PM) - 1 TEAspoon of DMSO, mixed in 4 ounces of water
2010 (8:10 PM) - 5 grams of vitamin C in 6 or more ounces of water
NOTICE: The evening dose, because of the DMSO, will likely create severe body odor. One hour after taking the DMSO the person should take a shower and change clothes and underware. In the morning they should take another shower and change their underware again. For some people even these precautions will not be enough. Have trusted people (WHO HAVE NOT TAKEN DMSO) be the judge of how bad you smell after the two showers and two changes of clothes and underware.
How Long Should the Treatment Be Taken?
This treatment should be taken indefinitely. Every six weeks the patient should take the Navarro Urine test
If the Navarro Urine test number does not increase each time it is taken, continue with this treatment.
If the Navarro Urine test number increases, discontinue this treatment and use a more proven alternative cancer treatment, such as the Cellect-Budwig protocol or the Life One protocol of Dr. Howenstine.
Then, 6 or 8 weeks AFTER the treatment is finished, please take another Navarro urine test. Because the Navarro urine test measures the amount of HCG molecules in your body, even if the cancer is cured, and the cancer cells are removed, the score many not drop as much as it should because it can take several months for the body to flush HCG molecules out of the body, even after the cancer is cured.
What this means is that it is difficult, even using the Navarro, to measure the success of this treatment because there is no way to actually measure how many cancer cells there are in a patient's body without using a PET scan or CT scan.
