most people know it for its topical qualities to help joints/muscles, etc. but i take it orally. i'll do anywhere between 1tsp-1tbsp 2x/day in distilled water. this stuff makes every good thing you take go into turbocharged mode.
some reading on it and a quote:
When combined with antibiotics, DMSO will convert bacteria which are resistant to a given antibiotic to being sensitive to that same antibiotic and probably a 80 to 90 percent solution of DMSO will be required in order to be clinically useful ( Pottz, Rampey, Benjamin,1967). DMSO has been used to transport antibiotics to hard-to-reach areas of the body with excellent results, such as the bone marrow and brain (Sanders, 1967).
DMSO can dissolve a virus protein coating, leaving the virus core unprotected with its nucleic acid exposed to the immune system. Applied topically, it alleviates the lesions that occur as a result of Herpes Zoster, shingles (Morton, 1993).
Placed into the nostrils or topically in the face, DMSO can
open blocked sinuses within a few minutes and it has been used with success in patients with polyps (Marvin, 1967). www.organiclifestylemagazine.com/the-unbelievable-benefits-of-dmso
