Hello, I'm using liquid DMSO, not the gel. Also I didn't think it mattered how you took it since DMSO is absorbed through the skin and ends up in the blood stream. Today was my second bad day in 5 weeks (not sure why) ... I had to take some steroids to quiet things down. I'm going to try this protocol for a few more weeks. To anyone who has tried this, how long did it take before all symptoms disappeared?
