Note #1: This article talks a lot about different uses for MSM and Vitamin C. Since this article was written a new protocol for cancer has been developed using MSM and Vitamin C. If you are dealing with cancer, make sure you see this newer article for an actual protocol using MSM and Vitamin C:
MSM and Vitamin C Protocol (For Cancer)
Note #2: If you are on prescription drugs (excluding chemotherapy, because this protocol is synergistic with chemotherapy and makes chemotherapy more effective and less damaging), do NOT use MSM until after you talk to your pharmacist and physician about using high doses of MSM (2 or 3 TABLEspoons of the crystals a day) with your prescription drugs. That is what pharmacists get paid to do.
I’m always being asked by people “ since you do so much research, what products do you take each day and why?” I thought I would share this information with you about products that I take daily and many that I would take, if I were faced with a chronic or deadly disease. If you feel that any information I may provide, may help a chronic condition you may have, I would suggest you research it thoroughly and make your own decision if you should take it or not. I am passing on information that is on the Internet and from books I’ve read and tapes I’ve listened to. You could always ask your doctor for his advise. Don’t be surprised if he knows nothing about it. Read and educate yourself. Then you can make an educated decision on your own health.
I will start by talking about the above two products. When MSM and Vitamin C are taken together they appear to help a multitude of chronic health problems as well as helping relieve “chronic pain”. If you suffer with chronic pain, you will love MSM. I know, I suffer every day from herniated disks in my back and the relief I get is tremendous. MSM inhibits muscle spasms and increases blood flow.
Remember though, not every one can always be helped by every supplement. It may work on one person and not another. Give it time and let it build up in your system. It may work within a day or two, or it may take 3-6 months.
For “pain” and “nutritional support” I take (3) MSM 1000mg tablets each day, one at each meal. I also take 1000 mg Vitamin C daily. When I’m really hurting I double the dose of MSM on myself, until I get my back pain under control. Sometimes I will add in 800mg of Advil.
MSM is no more toxic than water according to the research I have read. I use the MSM Tablets as I hear the MSM Powder tastes terrible unless mixed in juice.
MSM originates in the ocean and reaches the Human Food Chain through rainfall. It is a natural sulfur compound “found in all living things.” MSM is Nutritional Sulfur and is one of the prominent compounds found in our bodies, just behind water and sodium. You will hear people say they are allergic to sulfur, and they are, “chemical sulfurs” found in sulfas, sulfides and sulfates. Chemical Sulfurs and Nutritional Sulfurs are as different as water and gold.
MSM is the flexible bond between Proteins. When old cells die and new cells are formed they need the flexible bond MSM provides, for the skin to bend. Without it you get wrinkles, cracking skin, scar tissue, hardening of arteries and Emphysema. They are all Vitamin C and MSM related. You need lots of Vitamin C to build the new flesh. A deficiency in Vitamin C & MSM leads to strokes, heart attacks, varicose veins, spider veins, chronic nosebleeds, bruising, weak veins and arteries. MSM plays a major roll in “healthy body functions”.
MSM is needed by the body for healthy connective tissues, and joint function, proper enzyme activity, and hormone balance, along with proper function of the Immune System. Simply put, if your immune system is not functioning properly it may lack MSM. Remember there are many things that can contribute to an improperly functioning Immune System.
It has been found through supplementation, that MSM improves many health problems. Here are just a few where MSM has been found to be very effective: Allergies (“Pollen & Pet”), Food Allergies, Asthma, Emphysema, Lung Dysfunction, Migraine Headaches, Sinusitis, Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Skin Problems, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, Diabetes, Cancer, Lupus, Interstitial Cystitis, Scleroderma, Stomach & Digestive Tract Problems, Diverticulitis, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Heart Burn, Hyperacidity, Circulation, Cell Osmosis & Absorption.
Most of the above conditions would also be benefited with MSM and Vitamin C as several of them are caused by microbes.
For Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Skin Problems & Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, you well find that adding MSM Lotion also works well. Just rub the lotion into the affected area. You must still use the MSM & Vitamin C. These products are very effective for the above diseases.
A few extra benefits of MSM:
- Relief of constipation
- Lessening of scar tissue
- Softer skin
- Stronger thicker hair, grows faster and stops split ends
- Fingernails grow twice as fast and are less brittle
- More energy
Have you ever taken an Aloe Vera Leaf broken it open and put it on a burn or blister? That’s MSM you’re using.
Have you seen people with red-welted skin who itch a lot or have leathery skin, which splits, cracks or bleeds? That’s an MSM deficiency. Keloid Scars are a lack of MSM.
Ever seen a bird in a cage, which pulled all its feathers out? That’s an MSM deficiency. Birds in the wild don’t do that. Add MSM to their water and it will stop the problem.
Vitamin C when taken with MSM helps build strong and thick veins and arteries.
Emphysema occurs when you lose the flexibility in your lungs. MSM and Vitamin C provide the increased oxygen to the membranes faster and easier. Many times you will get immediate relief. These products appear to help repair the lungs giving back the flexibility. Many people have found that in as little as a week they were off their oxygen and were able to start walking outside, up to a half mile. Within 3 months many were back to work at desk jobs.
It has been found to take up to two years to get the old cells to die off and new cells to take their place. For this to happen you cannot hit and miss on taking the products. You must take it regularly. Remember again that not every product will work for every person, but It’s worth the try.
Burns: People who have been seriously burned and have had skin grafted, have found great relief with the MSM, MSM Lotion & Vitamin C. It helps build new blood vessels, collagen and flesh under the grafted skin, new skin color as well as increasing mobility. In some cases you will no longer be able to feel the demarcation line. It’s worth a try. Remember it takes time.
Diverticulitis is a Vitamin C & MSM deficiency. Take it, and it should correct the problem.
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome: In some cases MSM Lotion has gotten rid of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in as little as (2) weeks time. Take all 3 products though.
Hang Overs: MSM and Vitamin C will kick a hang over in 20-30 minutes. MSM makes the cell so permeable that it kicks the alcohol out of the cell its killing, and drives oxygen back into the cell. I have seen it work on 2 different people. Works very well. They ask me not to use their names.
Women and their monthly cycle – MSM and Vitamin C helps alleviate the pain associated with a monthly cycle by helping the glands work properly. This in turn helps dramatically easing the pain of headaches, cramps, nausea and hot flashes. It’s worth a try it might help.
Migraine Headaches: I have read that people who have suffered for years with migraine & chronic headaches have gotten real relief from MSM & Vitamin C even to the point of curing the migraine part. I suffered dearly for many years from them, even ending up in the hospital many times for the shots. I beat the problem with nutritional supplements before I knew about the above combination. I can now control my headaches with Advil.
Dog Lovers: You may not have to put your favorite pet to sleep because he has hip dysplasia, or any condition where that pet can hardly get around. Give him some MSM and Vitamin C. Give him or her a little time and you may find your favorite friend able to get around again and many times very well. Sprinkle MSM crystals on his food or water or shove a tablet down his throat.
Diabetes: This is so important I’m putting it in bold print.
You can beat Type 2 Diabetes and help yourself with Type 1. MSM and Vitamin C when taken will help regulate your blood sugar. I recently told a friend of mine Ron of my research about MSM and Vitamin C of which he put himself on for some problems he was having. Ron shared the information with another friend of ours Pat Campbell. Pat’s Diabetes was getting out of control. He had bleeding behind one eye and his blood sugar was running between 150-250 while on his medication. Pat came by to talk to me and I shared some research with him. Pat advised me, that normal blood sugar is supposed to be around 120. He said when he awoke in the mornings his blood sugar was running between 180-200. The doctor had him taking 4 pills a day and Pat was told to take 1 shot each night before bedtime. Pat said he refused to take the shot and decided to try the above MSM & Vitamin C combination.
To his surprise within a week, when he awoke in the morning his blood sugar was running between 114-120 and during the day around 140. I also told Pat about several other nutritional supplements that I had read about that knock Diabetes in the butt. He has checked it out and put himself on a few more of them and has cut his Diabetes Medication by 50% in the past 6 weeks. I feel Pat’s body will cure itself of the Diabetes if he keeps providing the nutritional support his body is starving for. Diabetes and most all diseases are a symptom of starvation. Provide your body with the proper nutritional support and your body, most of the time, will be able to heal its self.
I have also read that many diabetics who have been on the needle 5 or 6 years or more have been able to get their body to start regulating after about 4 months. I would say by watching Pat Campbell’s progression that one should watch their blood sugar “very closely” if they decide as Pat has, to become responsible for their own health. Pat calls me daily, and some days 2 or 3 times a day telling me about his progress. I have never seen a guy so excited as him. He has now started telling others, with diabetes, his story. I’ll let you know how he does. I believe he will beat it completely. Remember it takes more than just MSM & Vitamin C to win the battle.
[Webmaster Note: After writing this article, Mike has added another product to the MSM and Vitamin C for diabetes patients – Coral Calcium.]
Allergies to food and pollen can be relieved in as little as 4-5 days. The MSM & Vitamin C push the toxins from your body and are constantly cleaning. Some people are so toxic that when these toxins are being pushed from their body, they can cause headaches, nausea, skin rash, itching or maybe some muscle soreness. Hang in there it should go away as you detoxify. My son in law John has gotten great relief from his allergies. He stopped all medications.
Allergic Reactions and Anti Venom: The information I have read and listened to on a tape says that MSM locks up foreign proteins and flushes it out of the body. Its been used on horses when they have been snake bitten, but no one knew the type of snake. It has also been used on domestic animals when they have been bitten from an unknown source. A combination of the MSM Lotion, MSM & Vitamin C was given with excellent results including a rattlesnake bite on a dog’s nose. Lots of the Lotion was used. Apparently it neutralizes the foreign proteins.
The information also stated that the MSM would stop allergic reactions to bee stings, mosquito bites, flee bites, black widow spider bites and the brown recluse spider bite.
Cholesterol is naturally brought under control with the MSM & Vitamin C. You will be surprised. The body cleans out what it doesn’t need. Worth a try unless you just like taking prescription drugs which just cover up the symptoms of all disease, and then the diseases just progress and compounds, into more health problems and more drugs.
[Webmaster Note: Also add L-Lysine, L-Proline and L-Arginine to this protocol.]
This is information I have read and heard about, but do not know of anyone personally who has used it.
Vitamins & Minerals: Many of you take vitamins and minerals daily, but say you don’t notice much difference. Add MSM and Vitamin C. Many of those vitamins and minerals require a sulfur bond to start working properly.
You cut yourself, do I get a stitch or not? You can put MSM Lotion in the cut and tape it together. The next day you should find the wound tacked together. I am not advising you to do this, but it’s an option. The sharing of information, isn’t it nice? God I love these computers for passing on information.
Sore Muscles are created when you have overworked them. It creates a lactic acid build up. MSM & Vitamin C neutralizes it and stops the pain so good many times you don’t realize how hard you worked the day before. It has happened to me. Works great on me, especially after a hard work out at the gym. Next day little or no pain.
Bone Spurs, they say will go away in a matter of a month or so I guess depending on how bad they are. That’s what they say. I don’t know for sure.
Gum Disease: People who have gum problems have been able to get their gum disease back under control using Vitamin C and MSM, in many cases alleviating it altogether.
I have done my best in passing this information to you. How you use it is totally up to you or your doctor, but don’t hold your breath on that one. If you told me your medical doctor new 10% of the information I just provided you, I would probably drop over dead from a heart attack.
If this information helps you or a loved one, please pass it on. Any feedback from anyone using these (2) products for a health problem would be appreciated and shared with others.
