Thanks for posting this. I have just had a very interesting experience with MSM.
I used to give it to my dog as a pain killer and against rheumatism (which he never developed). It was very effective for him. I took it on a regular basis myself for about a year and only took a tsp or 2. It didn't really seem to do much for me but whenever I was in pain - either with a headache or other aches I would take it . (I never take pain killing drugs now).
The other week I had some pain from physical exercise and I took a few teaspoons. Then I took some more. The next day I did a BM which for me is a bit of a miracle as I have bad constipation at the moment and cannot really go without enemas. The following day the same thing happened. I never thought about MSM for constipation. Then I decided to up the dose. After about a week of taking 2 teaspoons 2 or 3 times a day I got a splitting headache. Then I took 6 maybe even 8 teaspoons throughout the day. The following day I passed stuff that really looked like flukes. I have done lots of parasite
cleanses both with strong Antibiotics
and herbs and only once has something like this happened before.
I have thought about all other possibilities. I know that many things that look like worms etc are often food fibres, cellulose and such. However, I had the most incredible fatigue for the rest of that day. Hope this information helps you. I am still taking the stuff and plan to up the dose again. The laxative effect has stopped (unfortunately!)
I too want to know if anyone else has tried taking these large doses. Also I read you should supplement MSM with molybdenum......but I think you only have to do this if you take MSM for long periods of time.
