Our family has used DMSO for 50 years. I live in Oregon. When I was a kid I put it on my Moms back. My grandmother wore a leg brace,but as I grew up, she no longer needed it. When I hurt my neck and back she told me she drinks 1 tsp every morning. I use it, I dont drink it and my grandmother lived to 94. It helps a sprained ankle immediatly. It helps carple tunnel. I taste celery when I use it, my friend tastes nothing. Its amazing, try it.
