Anyone Heard of MSM / DMSO?

My Dad has found, through research, a naturally ocurring compound called MSM. Naturally ocurrs in the body and in many foods. Basically a sulphur that our body needs. Why does it POTENTIALLY relate to CF? Because MSM affects cell membranes, especially mucous membranes. It basically naturally coats cell membranes to help relieve them of excess pressure, fluid and toxins. It is believed to have amazing anti-inflammatory effects. I found a few articles referencing MSM use for the respiratory and digestive tracts. There aren't many studies done on this, and as usual, our ridiculous FDA does not want to approve this. Only side effects recorded (found "studies" going back to the 1980's) include a period of nausea, headaches, etc. as MSM helps the body rids itself of toxins. It is believed to also have beneficial effects on everything from diabetes, insulin resistance, bone and ligament health, allergies, skin conditions, and so much more. I want to give it to Sam! It seems like a natural "miracle" and could help him so much! Not a cure, no, but an amazingly beneficial tool to keep him healthy. Thoughts?

In this work, two dimensional p-type MoS2 nanosheets are introduced on the surface of p-type ZnO derived from metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) to produce ZnO@MoS2 core/shell heterojunctions as a novel acetone sensor, showing a great enhancement of acetone response, about two orders of magnitude than that of pure Z...

Long-term physiological hyperglycemia will aggravate the degree of non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) proteins. Because the abnormal changes of non-enzymatic process can cause a series of pathological variation, NEG proteins have attracted more and more attention. Mass spectrometry (MS) is an indispensable and powerful analytical tool for the qualitative and quan...

In the social sciences invoking generalizability is more problematic as it is often based on assessment of a mainstream population, but may not apply to groups outside of the mainstream. This is a significant challenge to developing appropriate policy and interventions suitable for Other groups. An example is given of how this concern was overcome through consideration of the Voice Of the Customer (VOC) and utilizing cognitive maps to consider the...

We present a review of the classifications, pathophysiology, and evidence-based guidelines for planning and preventive measures, as well as best practice recommendations for both routine and urgent therapeutic management of diabetes and glycemic complications. These recommendations are graded based on the quality of supporting evidence and balance between the benefits and risks or burdens for each recommendation.

AbstractPurposeMental well-being among community-dwelling individuals with type 2 diabetes has not been well established. The primary objective was to evaluate the change in the mental well-being of individuals with diabetes. The secondary objective was to evaluate the association between changes in mental well-being and perceived health over 6  months, and any interacting factors in this association.MethodsThis was a prospective, multicenter study. Community-dwelling individuals aged  ≥ 21 years with type 2 diabetes were invited to meet with community pharmacists monthly for 6 months. Indiv...

Dysregulation of mTOR signaling occurs in many human diseases, and there are significant ongoing efforts to pharmacologically target this pathway. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA), defined by a length > 200 nucleotides and absence of a long open-reading-frame, are a class of non-protein...

Discussion Regurgitation is a passive expulsion of ingested material out of the mouth. It is a normal part of digestion for ruminants such as cows and camels. Nausea is an unpleasant abdominal perception that the person may describe as feeling ill to the stomach, or feeling like he/she is going to vomit. Anorexia is frequently observed. Nausea is usually associated with decreased stomach activity and motility in the small intestine. Parasympathetic activity may be increased causing pale skin, sweating, hypersalivation and possible vasovagal syndrome (hypotension and bradycardia). Retching or dry heaves is when there are sp...
