Organic Sulphur as a Versatile Healer
by Walter Last
MSM, dimethylsulfone or methylsulfonylmethane with the formula (CH3)2SO2 occurs naturally in many fresh foods butis lost during processing. Its main use in the body is for collagen synthesis, forming skin, blood vessels, hair and nails. Its main benefit is to keep cells, skin and blood vessels elastic, which is the attribute of youth. That is why organic sulphur is often regarded as the beauty mineral. It keeps cell walls permeable so that nutrients can freely flow into the cells and wastes and toxins can easily be removed.
Amino acid chains are usually linked with each other through flexible sulphur bridges. Also the oxidative energy production of cells requires reactive sulphur compounds. Without sufficient organic sulphur as in the form of MSM cells and body structures lose their elasticity and flexibility. The result are the well-known signs of aging: inelastic skin with increasing wrinkles, scar tissue, hardening arteries, varicose veins and also hardened lungs causing emphysema. Sufficient MSM is able to reverse these conditions to a significant degree, including emphysema. It is believed that the MSM in Aloe Vera is the active ingredient for repairing damaged skin.
with Vitamin C and MSM
Health authorities generally set such low limits for the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamins and minerals that obvious deficiencies in most individuals are avoided but so that these nutrients do not become a threat to the pharmaceutical industry by preventing and curing diseases. In this article I like to show what can be done with higher amounts of vitamin C as pioneered by doctors Linus Pauling, Ewan Cameron, Abram Hoffer and others. The results are even better when combined with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane or dimethylsulfone) and DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide).
There are hundreds of vitamin C articles with positive results published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine (www.orthomed.org) which specializes in vitamin research. In an act of obvious bias the MEDLINE database lists all articles by medical research journals, including Time magazine and Readers’ Digest, but not the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Because all these highly positive studies are not indexed by Medline, proponents of drug medicine can claim that there are no studies showing that vitamin C is useful and safe in the treatment of diseases.
There are many things that can cause pain for a cancer patient. The cancer cells themselves can cause pain. Or the cancer treatment can cause pain (e.g. radiation or chemotherapy). Other causes of pain can be a tumor on one organ, pressing against another organ.
For more ideas of dealing with pain see item #12 in the massive ICRF Reference Manual after reading this article:

Cesium Chloride Protocol
Note: While Cesium Chloride is a major cancer treatment, The Wolfe Clinic can help deal with pain even if you do not use their Cesium Chloride protocol.
Cesium chloride is one of the fastest acting substance to treat pain caused by cancer. It can act in as little as 12 to 24 hours. It is a long proven treatment for cancer pain. It is also one of the most potent alternative cancer treatments. For Stage IV cancer patients, it can be their primary cancer treatment.
Very few things can get inside a cancer cell. Cesium and potassium are two of the things that can get inside a cancer cell. These products drive up the alkalinity of cancer cells very quickly and cancer cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. It also interferes with the feeding of the cell, as cancer cells feed off sugar, glucose and fermentation.
So when will the citizens wake up to the criminality of their government in favoring killer corporate opiates over safe natural painkillers?
Set your mindset to objective and come with me to the little-known but plucky nation of Lower Slobovia. The residents of Lower Slobovia have two choices when they are suffering from chronic pain:
1. A natural, non-addictive medication that they can grow themselves that has never caused a single fatality due to overdose, adverse reactions or mixing with other drugs (polypharmacy), or
2. synthetic opiates manufactured by pharmaceutical corporations that are highly addictive, trigger multiple adverse reactions, manifest dangerous polypharmaceutical attributes and have killed over 165,000 people in the past 15 years– 28 times the nation’s 5,790 combat deaths in recent military conflicts.
The corporations manufacturing and distributing the synthetic opiates as “safe” hid the truth about their medications from doctors, patients and the media: ‘You Want a Description of Hell?’ Oxycontin’s 12-Hour Problem (via John F.) OxyContin’s stunning success masked a fundamental problem: The drug wears off hours early in many people, a Los Angeles Times investigation found. OxyContin is a chemical cousin of heroin, and when it doesn’t last, patients can experience excruciating symptoms of withdrawal, including an intense craving for the drug.
So take a guess which class of drugs is perfectly legal and widely promoted by Lower Slobovia’s healthcare system, and which one is classified as a restricted Schedule 1 drug by the nation’s Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), i.e. as dangerous as heroin?

– Cherries are an inexpensive natural remedy for pain (NaturalNews, August 28, 2011):
Pain is a huge problem for individuals, families, businesses and our economy. According to the American Pain Society, at any given time, as many as a third of us are in pain and every year pain drives half of us to a doctor`s office seeking relief. Combined costs of medical care and lost productivity due to chronic pain amount to $150 billion annually. While pain medications are expensive and have serious side effects, a number of natural and herbal remedies for pain relief are available which are good alternatives. One of these is cherries, which are loaded with antioxidants called anthocyanins that give them their red color along with significant pain relief.
General Pain Relief
In research published in 2004 at Johns Hopkins University, rats were injected with either a solution containing tart cherries or a prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and exposed to either a heated surface or an inflammatory agent. The tart cherries significantly reduced pain sensitivity and at the highest dosage were as effective as the drug. The authors conclude that tart cherries may have a beneficial role in inflammatory pain. In a 2001 study at Michigan State University, the anthocyanins in cherries were found to be equivalent to two common over-the-counter painkillers(also NSAIDs) for inhibiting the COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes associated with inflammation.

So this proves that western medicine drugs only work, because of the placebo effect.
Pain really is all in the mind, according to scientists who have discovered that positive thoughts can double a painkiller’s effect while negative thoughts can cancel them out.
Researchers from Oxford, Cambridge and two German universities made their conclusions after a novel experiment examining the role of conscious thought in pain perception.
First, 22 volunteers had a pain device put on their skin that was too hot for comfort.
Each then had an intravenous line attached to deliver a powerful opiate-based painkiller.
The volunteers were asked to rate the pain before any painkiller was introduced. The average score, from 0 to 100, was 66.
Then the researchers started providing the painkiller, without telling the volunteers they had done so. The average score dropped to 55.
But when the scientists told them they had started administering the painkiller the score dropped again to 39.
When they said they had stopped providing the painkiller, the score rose to 64 – even though the opiate was still flowing.
BRITAIN’S most popular painkiller is at the centre of a major health scare over fears it can cause liver failure and death.
Health regulators are to limit the amount of paracetamol in prescription medicines because of soaring cases of liver damage.
Paracetamol – also known as acetaminophen – is highly toxic to the liver if taken in excessive amounts and even more dangerous at the larger doses found in prescription combination drugs.
But if taken with a second over-the-counter drug that already has high levels of paracetamol, it can kill. Paracetamol is often found in cold and flu medicines.
Now the US regulator, the Food and Drug Administration, has announced it will cap the amount of paracetamol in drugs at 325mg per capsule instead of the current 500mg.
Some prescription medicines in America contain as much as 750mg of paracetamol.
In Britain, prescription-only and over-the-counter paracetamol tablets are limited to 500mg.
People are warned not to take more than two 500mg pills in four hours and no more than eight in 24 hours. Taking more could lead to acute liver failure.
In some cases just 10g of the drug – or 20 tablets – has been linked to overdose and liver damage. Sudden liver failure, which can be caused by the drug, can lead to the brain rapidly swelling often giving doctors little chance to save people. Just days ago it emerged that ibuprofen painkillers cause an increased risk of strokes in heart disease sufferers.
(NaturalNews) Forget the aspirin and Big Pharma pills for your muscle pain. According to a new study just reported in the Journal of Pain, published by the American Pain Society, daily doses of raw or heat-treated ginger effectively relieve muscle aches and discomfort — and that includes even severe pain following strenuous exercise.
For centuries, ginger has been used by practitioners of Chinese medicine and by traditional Indian and Japanese healers to treat a host of conditions including vomiting and nausea, chronic coughs, morning sickness, gastrointestinal complaints and migraine headaches. It has also been used to treat both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. However, Western medicine has only recently started to seriously study the medicinal qualities of ginger.
So far, several studies have shown that ginger appears to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties similar to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the side effects (which can include gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers). In one study, taking a daily dose of ginger (30 to 500 mg.) for four to 36 weeks successfully reduced knee pain in people suffering from osteoarthritis.
Now, in new research from the University of Georgia and Georgia College and State University (GCSU), scientists have found even more evidence that ginger is a potent muscle pain reliever. The scientists worked with seventy-four student volunteers who were divided into three groups. One group was given raw ginger, one group received heated ginger and the third group received a fake ginger placebo.
Muscle pain was induced in the volunteers by having them perform 18 eccentric muscle exercises. Then the research subjects were tested on 11 consecutive days to see if those taking the ginger had reduced muscle aches and pains. And they did — dramatically. The results showed that both raw and heat-treated ginger lowered muscle pain intensity by 25 and 23 percent, respectively.
