Frustrated baby girlReader says, I’ve been taking your organic sulphur now for several weeks and haven’t noticed much change in my health or energy level. Am I missing something here? Should I increase or reduce my dosage or continue taking it as prescribed? Thanks for your help.

Here are three of the most common reasons why you haven’t experienced significant changes after taking organic sulfur:

• Dehydration due to insufficient water intake
• Chemicals in your drinking water that conflict with sulfur
• Additives in medications or pills that conflict with sulfur

As part of the methylation and detoxification process, sulfur transports oxygen molecules to our cells so the cells can regenerate in a healthy manner. The oxygen comes from the water we drink and not from the air we breathe. Sulfur never enters our cell membranes. Once sulfur finishes its job of transporting oxygen, it then reacts with the toxins that it finds in our body (it sulfates them) and disposes of them via our bowel movements.

In order for sulfur to flush out toxic materials in an optimal manner, you must consume an amount of water each day that is appropriate for your weight. The rule of thumb that I recommend is to drink 1 ounce (28.3 grams) of water for every 2 pounds (0.9 kilograms) of body weight. For example, if an individual weighs 128 pounds, I would recommend that they drink 64 ounces of water daily while they are following our sulfur protocol.

Wherever possible, dissolve the sulfur crystals using pure, filtered water. Distilled water or water that has been treated using a reverse osmosis system is also acceptable. In addition, be sure to consume your sulfur beverage at least 30 minutes BEFORE you take your medicines or other supplements, including vitamins. If you fail to wait a half hour, the fillers or anti-caking agents (such as magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide) that are commonly used to manufacture pills and powders will deactivate sulfur and prevent the nutrient from being bioavailable by your body.

On the other hand, avoid water that is either chlorinated or fluoridated, for either compound will make the sulfur work less effectively (chlorine blocks the uptake of sulfur). If you only have access to municipal water, use the hot water side of your faucet as your source. By doing so, the water will be free of chlorine. Dissolve the sulfur crystals in the hot water and let the liquid mixture cool down for 10 minutes or more before drinking it.

Several readers have asked whether it is ok to dissolve the crystals in a liquid other than distilled or filtered water. My response is, that depends. For instance, many senior citizens who are participants in the Cellular Matrix Study mix their organic sulfur crystals in a cup of hot coffee or tea. I typically add a teaspoon of either apple cider vinegar or pure maple syrup to my water-based drink.

Fruit juices can be used in lieu of water, with one caveat. Sulfur crystals are highly alkaline with a pH level of about 9.3. We do not recommend mixing sulfur with a sweet juice that has a low pH such as mango, pineapple, or orange unless you also add a few drops of lime juice which will raise the drink’s overall pH level. Juices which are ok to use, as is, include pomegranate, cranberry, and grapefruit.

How can I tell whether sulfur is working for me?

Take a full front-view photograph of your face and then repeat the process every month or so. Sulfur affects the health of your hair and skin. Evaluate each photograph over the course of time to see whether you are starting to appear more youthful-looking (if you begin to receive unsolicited compliments about your appearance, you know sulfur is working for you!). Another visible indicator is scar tissue. If you begin to see scar tissue disappear from your skin, you are receiving confirmation of a direct benefit from taking sulfur.

When all else fails, ask for help

Let’s assume you’ve noticed very little change regarding your overall health and energy levels, even though you are not dehydrated, you are drinking fresh, filtered water, and you wait the requisite 30 minutes before taking your meds and supplements. What then? Now it’s time to consider the ‘WILD CARD’ – the exact nature of your health issue(s) and how you got to where you are today.

Many people take organic sulfur regularly as a way to increase their stamina and speed up the recovery process after strenuous exercise. Others take sulfur to help with a particular health condition, such as constipation, diabetes, diarrhea, diverticulitis, gastro-intestinal ulcers, hypertension, sunburn pain, itching skin, migraines, Alzheimer’s disease, Crohn’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Parkinson’s disease.

Your environmental terrain should be considered as an integral part of your health condition. For instance, do you live near an oil refinery or a toxic waste site? Are there poisons that you are exposed to at your home or place of business? Is there a way for you to reduce your toxic load safely and easily?

While the technological advancements of modern society have conditioned many of us to expect instant feedback from our remedies of choice, I seriously doubt that organic sulfur will immediately address chronic degenerative and inflammatory conditions that have developed over many years. It takes time for all your cells to regenerate themselves in a healthy manner.

If you are not receiving the results that you expected from organic sulfur and want to know what you can do about it, I invite you to email a list of your health issues and concerns. To submit your message, click the Contact button that appears on the Organic Sulfur For Health website. While I cannot guarantee an immediate response (especially on weekends), my intent is to respond to your email submission within 24-48 hours. If you prefer to discuss your situation over the phone, be sure to include a callback number and the best day(s) and time(s) to reach you.

Final checklist

Comparing your situation today to the time before you started taking organic sulfur:

1. Do you have more energy now? The same? Or less?
2. Are your bowel movements more ‘regular’?
3. Do you sleep better?
4. Are you dreaming? Do you dream in color?
5. Are you drinking the amount of water recommended by the organic sulfur protocol?

    Thank you so very much for this information. I used very hot tap water to dissolve my MSM this morning and will wait 30 min. before eating or taking my supplements. I was using plain tap water for my MSM. Not anymore thanks to your information. I will absolutely increase my water consumption as well. We have a Pur filter on our faucet and I use that water to pour into our Britta, so our water is double filtered. Appreciate your recommendations!

    Linda, your Pur and Britta filters will not remove flouride from your water. While Pur filters are better then most I highly recommend that you take the plunge and invest in a water distiller. If you don’t want to invest a distiller then get an RO filter but just remember that with the RO systems it is possible for the membrane to break and then you’ve got toxins from the membrane leaching into your water.

      While I don’t know about any known conflicts, there are several online articles that warn consumers about drinking Dasani water as a rule. See below.

      The best choice that many water consumers can make may be to just stick to drinking tap water. “To the extent that tap water is clean and free of harmful contaminants,” says Nestle, “it beats everything in taste and cost.”

    Are there any long range side effects to using organic sulphur? Is distilled water ok to use or other brands of water from the store?

    • 2017-01-09 at 7:01 pm

      Using distilled or some type of purified water source is fine. With regards to using bottles of branded water (such as Kangan), be sure to check the ingredients shown in the product label. Avoid mixing organic sulphur with any water source that contains chlorine (such as cold tap water) which interferes with the body’s ability to use sulphur. If your only drinking water source comes out of the tap, be sure to take your water from the hot water faucet, only, and let the beverage cool down for 10-15 minutes before drinking it. While I don’t have any concrete data or know of any studies regarding the long-term effects of taking organic sulphur, I know that my supplier, Patrick McGean, has been personally using the product since 1999.

    Will sulfur go in and clean out the ides, chloride, fluoride and bromide? Was thinking about a homeopathic for this and then I thought I think the sulfur will do this!

    Glysophates? Biolfilms on Candida, h pylori? Will sulfur break these down too?

    Berkey water filter should be ok right?
    Thank you

    • 2017-04-21 at 3:39 pm

      Per my supplier, Patrick McGean, taking organic sulfur daily can neutralize and protect our bodies from harmful toxins except for radioactive iodine. That would include aluminum, mercury, chlorine, fluoride in our water supply, and the glyphosate that has been sprayed on crops. I myself use a Berkey Light system to filter the drinking water I consume daily. I’ve installed the standard black filter as well as the optional fluoride filter in my Berkey system to remove as much of the contaminants as possible. With regard to candida, what I’ve been told by my supplier in the past is that sulfur may help, but that it’s a slow process. I apologize that I cannot offer any specifics with regard to candida. What I can say is that because organic sulfur provides detoxification benefits on a general level, that taking the product should not trigger a worse outbreak of candida.

    I have just been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and have started to lose my hair. Do you think this will help?
    Thank you!

    • 2017-07-05 at 11:14 am

      While taking organic sulfur is known to compliment and support various health protocols at a synergistic level and it is possible that it can help reverse your hair loss, with regards to your Hashimoto’s symptoms, I would consult a Functional Medicine practitioner in your area and purchase and read (if you haven’t already) Dr. Izabella Wentz’s book called, “The Definitive Guide for Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.” Also, take note of Dr. Wentz’s relevant case study that she posted on her website:

      Hashimoto’s – It’s a Whole Body Condition, Not Just a Thyroid Condition
      From Dr. Izabella’s Client Files

      Jenny is an athletic dog lover who worked part at her family restaurant. She had been previously diagnosed with Hashimoto’s (TPO antibodies in the 800 range) and subclinical hypothyroidism, with a slightly elevated TSH, and normal T4 and T3. At her initial diagnosis, Jenny had many symptoms of hypothyroidism including fatigue, excess weight gain, and hair loss.

    If you should avoid flouridated water then what good is getting the water from the hot water tap? That removes the chlorine but not the fluoride correct? Even boiling will not remove the fluoride. I e always heard to take from the hot water side and wait but have also always been confused about how that helps with the fluoride. Can you explain?
