Raynaud's and DMSO
Posted by: Michelle

Would DMSO be an effective treatment for the greatly reduced circulation of hands and feet seen in Raynaud's syndrome? How frequently should it be applied and is it better before exposure to cold or after symptoms begin?

I have not tried that, but it makes a bit of sense that it would help. If done correctly it would at least be harmless. I cannot recommend treatment in this format, but if I were doing that for myself, I would dilute the DMSO 50:50 with sterile water,wash my hands thoroughly and message it in like hand lotion. You should do this under a doctor's supervision. I suppose you know I have to say that. Please let us know the outcome. Also, I would have a blood cell analysis by the dark field method. There are conditions which make Reynaud's much worse which can be easily seen and corrected - namely hypercoagulability states and mineral insufficiencies.
