Dr. Ian Shillington is a Naturopathic Doctor who specializes in helping others to help themselves using nutritional and herbal naturopathic remedies. His definition of naturopathy is “the science or art of treating a disease by addressing the cause, using nutrition, exercise, sunlight, clean air, pure water, massage, hydrotherapy (both hot &
cold), confront, prayer, meditation, lifestyle, biochemistry (which includes vitamins, minerals, enzymes, etc.), and correcting any imbalances found.”
My most dramatic experience in using DMSO was when I was actively practicing in my clinic in New Mexico. A neighbor brought me his black Labrador that had been attacked by a pack of coyotes and was missing half of his shoulder. The muscles, and the skin & hair had all been torn from the shoulder leaving only a gaping hole the size of my fist with severed veins just hanging loose. My neighbor was just hoping we could save the dog's life, but I informed him we could do much better than that. For the next 6 months we mixed and applied an herbal preparation using my Total Healing Poultice Powder and DMSO. We crudely loaded the wound up with this mixture, bandaged it up (changing it weekly), and at the end of 6 months, the flesh, muscle and tissues had all grown back, the skin had reformed over the wound. Even the hair had grown in again leaving no scar whatsoever. The dog had no limp, and there was no way anyone could even tell he d ever been injured at all. All traceable signs of the wound were gone.
