MSM, Cancer, Arthritis, Autoimmune Diseases
In this video, Jeremy Appleton spends about 29 minutes speaking on "MSM, Cancer, Arthritis, Autoimmune Diseases" at the 31st Annual Cancer Convention held on Labor Day weekend by the Cancer Control Society.
About Jeremy Appleton
JEREMY APPLETON, N.D. received his Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon and completed his Residency at Bastyr University of Natural Health Sciences in Kenmore, Washington.
Dr. Appleton is a Professor and Chairman of the Nutrition Department at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine where he supervised the Nutrition Curriculum and taught 3 doctoral level Nutrition Courses.
His professional experience includes Director of Technical and Regulatory Affairs at Tyler Encapsulations, Gresham, Oregon and Senior Science Editor, Healthnotes, Inc., Portland, Oregon, where he contributed over 80 articles.
Presently, Dr. Appleton is Director of Scientific Affairs at Cardinal Nutrition, Vancouver, Washington. Cardinal Nutrution is a U.S.-based firm and the world’s leading manufacturer of MSM under the name OptiMSM. MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur compound and nutritional component of many foods. The chemical name for MSM is dimethyl sulfone, or DMSO2. It is the primary, oxidized metabolite of DMSO and shares many of its therapeutic properties.
Dr. Appleton and Dr. Stanley Jacob co-authored a book called MSM: The Definitive Guide, which is one of the most complete guides to MSM ever written. Dr. Jacob is a medical doctor and is the world’s foremost expert on its research and clinical applications.
Thank you very much. I'm pleased to be here.
The title of my presentation today is MSM for Arthritis, Cancer and Auto Immune Disease. For those of you who may not be familiar with MSM, this is a naturally occurring sulfur containing nutrients. That is the primary oxidized metabolite of dimethyl so floc side or DMSO. And many of you are familiar with DMSO as a as a very valuable therapeutic agent that can be applied topically, can be taken orally and used intravenously as well.
Both of these agents are part of the Earth's natural Bofur cycle.
And they this is my little nickname for di methyl cell phone. This is what MSM is also known as. And that's my mnemonic for Remembering a Time. Ethel, cell phone anyway.
No time for humor this morning. Where does MSM occur in nature?
It is a byproduct of the decay of algae and phytoplankton, which then release sulfur compounds into the atmosphere.
And those are transformed in the presence of ozone and ultraviolet light to DMX, which in turn is oxidized to DMSO and then to DMSO to die metal cell phone or and that's down. Both are very water soluble, so they're taken up into the clouds and return to the earth in rainfall and are concentrated in the root systems of plants. However, the amounts of MSM that are present in foods, although they are whites, it is wide spread. The amounts are very small. As you can see, the most concentrated is in milk get between three and eight parts per million.
Thus MSM to take it as a dietary supplement or to use it as a pair of Putin's needs to be made produced. And it can be produced in a manufacturing facility through a very similar process by how it's produced in nature.
That is by oxidizing DMSO and it is also naturally found in the human body in very small quantities. The exact role of MSM in the human body in those quantities isn't exactly known, but it appears to play some role in the liver, in detoxification. For example, when the body encounters zino biotics such as a PCR beats the body will naturally methyl cell formulate them, which indicates that there is some dodginess used for MSM in the body. This is what the molecule looks like. There's that sulfur atom right in the middle. So people talk about MSM, they talk about it as a way of delivering the mineral sulfur. Sulfur is very important for a variety of processes in the body, which fortunately I probably won't have time to go into in any depth.
But it's particularly important in connective
