I have had Crohn's Disease for more than 30 years. Attempts to control my disease with conventional treatments using steroids and sulfa drugs, have provided some help, but my disease still progressed to where I had to have many surgeries, which eventually lead to an ileostomy. The conventional drugs and surgeries slowed the progression of the disease but did not stop it.

In February, 1995, a friend and coworker, Dr. David Gregg decided to see if he could find/invent something that might help me. My bowel was inflamed and I was working half time. Dr. Gregg did a literature search and an analysis of what he thought might be the cause of CD. He concluded that DMSO might help. Having had horses, I was quite familiar with DMSO's use on animals. Because of this I felt it was safe to try. I consulted my doctor and he thought it would be safe also. During this time I was only physically able to work in the morning. At noon, after consulting with my gastroenterologist, I purchased some DMSO at the local health food store and applied approximately 1-2 teaspoons full on my abdomen (it absorbs directly though the skin). I then went to a movie. Within an hour, almost all of my abdominal pain was gone. There was still residual intestinal damage so it took approximately one month for the healing process to complete, with the termination of all abdominal pain. During this time I continued to apply DMSO two to three times a day, often changing skin area to minimize irritation on one patch of skin. I did not limit application to my abdomen. I found using a gel form of the DMSO, which was 70%, DMSO and 30% water to cause less irritation and to be easier to apply.

It has now been more than three years and DMSO has kept my CD in control during this time without the need for any other treatments, drugs or surgeries. I have had numerous times when I felt the familiar onset of CD inflammation and DMSO always stopped its progression. However, this would not necessarily take one hour, but sometimes took anywhere from two days to a week, applying the DMSO approximately three times a day. Since my CD never progressed to further inflammation, I have to conclude that the DMSO was acting not just a pain block, but it stopped the progression of my CD itself.

One of the beauties of the DMSO is that it works so fast and is so totally effective. It does not have to be used in a preventative mode. DMSO only needs to be used at the onset of inflammation. I have experienced no negative side effects. I have also focused on good diet and supplements to extend my periods of remission. Amazingly, this process has worked so well that I have had to use the DMSO only twice in the past year.

My experience with the DMSO approach to treating Crohn's Disease has been the true miracle I had been hoping for. What is also strange is that DMSO is so easily available and so absurdly inexpensive. Don't let the simplicity and low cost of this approach deceive you into thinking it is ineffective or only moderately effective. As a severe CD sufferer, I find DMSO profoundly effective. DMSO has made it possible for me to lead a normal life. I am writing this testimonial because I can only hope DMSO will be found to be effective in helping other CD sufferers.

From June 1977 to about March 1994, I was hospitalized from two to as many as seven times per year with severe flare-ups of Crohn's disease, with all of the usual symptoms of extreme diarrhea, cramping and weight loss.

In 1994, I started taking melatonin (3-6 mg/day, taken in the evening) and drinking green tea with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and one tablespoon of raw honey each day. I am very pleased with the results. I have not had a flare-up of Crohn's colitis in over three years. I have returned to my normal weight, after being underweight for years.

I have suffered with Crohn's Disease for 10 years. I used the standard treatments of steroids and sulfa drugs prescribed by my doctor, with unsatisfactory results. Neither of these drugs stopped the pain or progression of my disease. After years of use, all the negative side-effects from these prescription drugs began to out-weigh the benefits for me and I refused to take them anymore.

A year ago my aunt told me about David Gregg's experience and write-up on using DMSO and/or Melatonin for helping Crohn's Disease. I had almost lost all hope of ever getting any relief from this horrible disease. Needless to say, I didn't hesitate trying it. It's inexpensive to by at any health food store, is simple to use, and it's effectiveness is astonishing. The only side effect I found was an odor on my breath. Because of other complications, I also used a vegetarian enzyme complex to help with digestion.

I started out using one or two teaspoons of DMSO on my skin whenever I felt pain or discomfort. After just four days the results were amazing. My pain and discomfort would stop 20 or 30 minutes after applying DMSO. My appetite came back. I was gaining a little weight, and my energy level began to rise. I felt great.

I was so impressed and amazed with the results I contacted Mr. Gregg and told him how well his treatment theory was working for me, and that I thought his theory was going to change my life. It has definitely changed my life. I have been in remission for months.

After using DMSO to get my pain and inflammation under control, I began to use 3 to 6 mg of melatonin nightly, which I still use every night. I have been in remission and free of any symptoms for months now. I feel better than I have in 10 years, and finally live a normal life again.

I would hope that writing this testimonial helps others who suffer from CD to know that there is profoundly effective and affordable help for our painful condition.

Approximately thirty-five years ago when I started to have children, I developed an abdominal pain in a particular spot that remained a part of my life up to approximately two years ago, when I met David Gregg. The pain varied in intensity throughout those years, but it was always there. At first it was misdiagnosed as being due to scar tissue in the intestine, which was surgically removed. The pain came back anyway. Then it was then thought to be due to a kidney problem because I once had kidney surgery for kidney stones. (I later learned that kidney stones are frequently associated with Crohn's Disease.) In 1980 I moved to California and still had a lot of symptoms consisting of continued abdominal pain in that particular spot and a continuation of problems with kidney stones. I had two kidney surgeries and passed 16 kidney stones. I was working in a doctor's office and decided to see a new doctor, a gastroenterologist, who had a particularly good reputation. After treating me for a while and not being certain what was causing my problems, he decided to make a heroic effort to try to find out what was going on. He put me in the hospital and viewed my intestine with a scope. He saw what he thought was a polyp, but when he tried to excise it, it "exploded" and underneath he saw what he knew to be Crohn's Disease. He took a biopsy which confirmed it was Crohn's Disease. Thereafter I started using all the standard prescription drugs for CD. They did help, and were better than nothing, but they were only partially effective in eliminating the pain and had unpleasant side effects. I continued this up to approximately two years ago when I met David Gregg in my aerobics class at my health club.

I was talking to him one morning and he told me he thought he might have discovered something that would greatly help Crohn's Disease. I told him I had CD and was interested. He then gave me a copy of a document he had written describing the successes achieved with DMSO and Melatonin on both Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I decided to try it and got some of both at my health food store. I applied approximately a tablespoon of 99.9% liquid DMSO to my abdomen and in about two hours, I felt a very large reduction in abdominal pain, specifically including that particular spot associated with my disease. I continued to apply it once-a-day for the following 3-4 days and the pain totally vanished. I initially used a cotton swab to apply it, but later decided that using a glass bottle with an eyedropper would be easier and better. During the following year, I stopped using all my prescription drugs and used the DMSO only. In that year I had approximately four reoccurrences of pain, which were totally stopped using the DMSO, one tablespoon full applied to my abdomen, once-a-day for 3-5 days. The thing that was specially unique was that between these "attacks" I felt totally free of pain - for the first time in over 35 years. This last year, the second year of DMSO use, I have had to use it only once and the one event of inflammation pain was much less severe. Again, I am now completely free of the very familiar abdominal pain associated with my CD.

For me, it appears that the DMSO not only stopped my inflammations, but may be leading me to a more permanent cure for my disease. Only time will tell. With the DMSO being so successful, I did not attempt to use the Melatonin approach.

I can't adequately express how much this has benefited the quality of my life. I am thus writing this testimonial in the hope it will help others suffering from this horrible disease in the same way it helped me.
