Reader asks: Can someone who has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and has been operated upon to receive new blood vessels take organic sulfur and benefit from it?
The heart is a muscle. In Dr. Stephanie Seneff’s article posted on the Weston A. Price website in 2011 that was entitled, “Sulfur Deficiency: A Possible Contributing Factor in Obesity, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s and Chronic Fatigue,” the noted MIT research scientist wrote the following:
Sulfur is the eighth most common element by mass in the human body, behind oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus and potassium. The two sulfur-containing amino acids, methionine and cysteine, play essential physiological roles throughout the body. However, sulfur has been consistently overlooked by those addressing the issues of nutritional deficiencies.
Sulfur is known as a healing mineral, and a sulfur deficiency often leads to pain and inflammation associated with various muscle and skeletal disorders.
Naturally Savvy correspondent Andrea Donsky wrote an article in 2013 entitled, “20 Reasons To Try Organic Sulfur” where she references the expert opinion of Hesh Goldstein, who is a talk radio host and organic sulfur distributor based in Hawaii.
According to Mr. Goldstein, organic sulfur increases blood circulation, reduces muscle inflammation, promotes healing in the muscles, and prevents the muscles from becoming sore. I can vouch for the muscles-soreness claim, as I dance once or twice a week and experience none of the aches and pains that are common among the dancers whom I associate with.
John Hammell is another organic sulfur distributor based in Washington state who contacted me recently via email to proudly claim that he has customers around the world who have seen their deteriorating health situations turn around for the better after they started taking the product. Many of his success stories are customers who had previously suffered from heart disease.
My organic sulfur supplier, Patrick McGean, told me that before the British colonized India that heart disease was virtually unheard of in that country. He says that heart disease is now the leading cause of death in India. He suggests that despite the regular consumption of foods containing various aromatic spices that genetically modified foods and the lack of sulfur in the diet may be to blame.
If you are taking any form of medication, adding organic sulfur to your health regimen should enable both protocols to work synergistically. Unless you weigh more than 200 pounds (90 kg), the recommended dosage is 1 teaspoon of organic sulfur dissolved in a glass of water that you should consume twice a day. Many of my customers take their sulfur drink during breakfast and dinner, though it can taken on an empty stomach and at other times of the day. To prevent the additives in pills and capsules from interfering with the efficacy of organic sulfur, the sulfur beverage should be consumed first, and then you need to wait 30 minutes before taking your meds or vitamin supplements.
Finally, staying properly hydrated helps expedite the healing process and avoid detox reactions such as dizziness and diarrhea, for it is the oxygen in water that sulfur transports to the cells so the cells can regenerate and repair themselves in a healthy manner. The recommended amount of water to consume is 1 ounce for every 2 pounds of body weight. For instance, if you weigh 140 pounds, you should drink 70 ounces of water daily.
Safety Notice #1:
Do not take Organic Sulfur if you are taking high doses of aspirin or any type of blood thinner!
