Reader asks, Can you provide any information as to whether organic sulfur can help alleviate the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?
Thank you very much for your email concerning organic sulfur. In order to provide you with the answers that you are looking for, it would be helpful to know a little bit about the nature of your inquiry.
For instance, have you been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis or are your inquiring on behalf of a friend or loved one? If you are suffering from MS, how long have you had the condition and what type of treatments have you tried? What symptoms are you trying to correct? Are there other health issues that you are dealing with in addition to MS?
Sulfur helps the body repair and regenerate cells in a healthy manner. The type of sulfur found in foods that the body can absorb and use is called methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM for short. Taking MSM in its purest supplement form (as organic sulfur) enables the body to make its own set of B vitamins as well as the master antioxidant, glutathione. Produced mainly in the liver, glutathione is an amino acid made from three sulfur-based amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. Because of its sulfur component, glutathione behaves like sticky wallpaper by binding to toxic substances and disposing of them via the liver. When glutathione levels drop, the burden of toxic stress increases.
Please note that it takes approximately 7 years to regenerate all of your soft tissue cells. It’s vitally important to drink plenty of water daily in order for sulfur to transport the oxygen in the water to your cells so that the cells regenerate in a healthy manner. When taking organic sulfur, pay close attention to the health of your hair, skin, and nails. Nerves do not regenerate overnight.
I am not a licensed physician, so what I provide should not be construed as professional medical advice. What I offer, instead, is the personal feedback and experiences that has been shared by the more than 300,000 organic sulfur users worldwide, including many who have been afflicted with MS.
