An Oklahoma natural cancer treatment center, Camelot Cancer Care, has been using DMSO to treat patients, and amazingly had managed to survive for awhile in the USA. Unfortunately, it was shut down by the FDA and FBI. Several patients who were being successfully treated were turned away.
A major aspect of Camelot’s orthomolecular (mega-dose vitamin) treatment incorporated DMSO, which has been proven to carry compounds deeply and rapidly into tissue while also having it’s own properties that promote cancer cell apoptosis (cell death).
Most normal cells are programmed for apoptosis as part of their cycle for allowing new cells to generate. Cancer cells don’t have this property, so they claim immortality by never dying by themselves, eventually forming tumors.
The explanation for the Camelot raid and shutdown was this: the clinic was using B17, or laetrile, an FDA substance banned for treating cancer. Laetrile was banned even after it was proven safe and efficacious against cancer, but as a natural substance, it wasn’t patentable for huge profits.
But the Camelot center’s extensive use of DMSO was probably another factor that invited the FDA and FBI to shut them down.
DMSO’s (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) Properties and Potentials
DMSO is produced by oxygenating dimethyl sulfide, a by-product of wood pulp processing. It was discovered by Russian scientist Alexander Zaytsev in 1866 and was considered useful as a solvent.
Medical interest surfaced in the early1960s at the Oregon Health and Science University Medical School, where Dr. Stanley Jacob discovered that DMSO could penetrate skin and organ membranes without damaging them.
Dr. Jacob researched DMSO further and found several topical analgesic applications for animals and humans. He went further with injecting or ingesting DMSO for a bladder malady, interstitial cystitis (IC). In 1978, the FDA allowed DMSO to be used for IC. Dr. Jacob consumed a teaspoonful of DMSO daily for over 30 years and claimed perfect health.
On a Crohn’s disease forum page, there is much discussion and testimony on using it to relieve Crohn “flares” of unbearable discomfort by simply applying DMSO topically onto the lower abdomen area. The 60 Minutes videos here will show how to apply DMSO topically.
But the big deal with DMSO involves treating cancer. R. Webster Kehr of the Cancer Tutor and others report on a series of experiments on cancerous animals that discovered DMSO targets cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.
There have been doctors who have used DMSO with some existing chemotherapy drugs. Instead of the chemo destroying everything in its path as usual, the DMSO escorted the chemo to cancer cells only, thus greatly reducing the amount of chemotherapy needed for a result.
Maybe that’s why even doctors who had used FDA/AMA approved chemo drugs with DMSO were shut down. Using only 10% of any chemotherapy drug and getting positive results adversely affects Big Pharma’s and oncology profits.
DMSO has been used by itself in successfully helping to treat cancer. The Cancer Tutor recommends using it with Cessium Chloride and other natural remedies to improve those remedies absorption and efficacy.
One published study in India mentions that much in-vitro (lab test tube) testing has demonstrated DMSO’s ability to induce apoptosis in cancer cells. But their study proved cancerous apoptosis went beyond test tubes and cultures by using DMSO on live animals.
The FDA requires DMSO sold as a “solvent” even if pure.
