Reader asks, My carotid arteries are partially blocked. I take 5 mg of Lisinopril daily to manage my blood pressure. I also take baby aspirin every day. Can I also take organic sulfur? I really believe in sulfur and can feel a difference when I take it. However, I read someplace that I should not. While I could consult my doctor, he doesn’t share my views about alternative health treatments.
Lisinopril is prescribed to treat congestive heart failure and hypertension (high blood pressure) and improve survival after a heart attack.
You are correct that you should not take organic sulfur if you are currently taking aspirin or another type of blood thinner. If you have been taking aspirin regularly and want to stop, it’s important to talk to your doctor before making any changes. Suddenly stopping daily aspirin therapy could have a rebound effect that may trigger a blood clot. If you live within close proximity to a naturopathic physician or herbalist, they may be able to offer a workable strategy for your specific health condition.
As noted on pp. 71-76 of Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj’s groundbreaking book, Your Body’s Many Cries For Water, hypertension may result from a combination of chronic dehydration and a low sodium diet. Since the founding of the Cellular Matrix Study in 1999, Patrick McGean and his team of researchers have found that taking organic sulfur can lower one’s blood pressure, especially when Himalayan pink salt is added 30 minutes after taking sulfur. Staying properly hydrated during the day, especially when following an organic sulfur protocol, is essential for staying fit.
