Reader says, I am 68 years old and suffer from arthritis in my knees, hips and joints that make it very difficult for me to stand up or walk without assistance. None of the remedies that my doctors have given me have signifcantly lessened my pain or discomfort. Can taking organic sulfur help me recover?
An estimated 50 million Americans, or one in five adults, suffer from arthritis, according to a 2011 report published on the Mercola.com website. While arthritis is used to describe several types of joint-related diseases, the two main types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. According to archaeological records, arthritic signatures could be found in the bones and skeletal remains of prehistoric tribes of North America, and appears to have been known during the days of ancient Egypt.
Calcium crystal deposits in the body can cause painful inflammation in and around joints. These crystal deposits are typically found in joints affected by osteoarthritis. Symptoms include swelling and sudden pain and stiffness in the affected area (such as the knee). If you have osteoarthritis, that’s often a sign that the cartilage in your joints is progressively being damaged, while the fluid that keeps your joints lubricated is likely to be reduced as well. In turn, the loss of cartilage in the knee is associated with a vitamin D deficiency (a common concern during the winter).
If you suffer from arthritis, I encourage you to consider taking organic sulfur, or MSM, as part of your daily health regimen. Taking organic sulfur helps to repair damaged cells, and facilitates faster recovery from inflammation and soreness that is being felt in the muscles, tendons, and joints. Moreover, taking organic sulfur helps to break down and neutralize compounds such as calcium carbonate, which is why many Cellular Matrix Study members who had been arthritic are no longer suffering from this painful condition.
The organic sulfur protocol calls for taking the product twice a day (approximately 12 hours apart) for optimal results. Including vitamin C along with organic sulfur provides the foundation for building healthy collagen and cartilage. As part of the protocol, be sure to take your organic sulfur crystals first, then wait 30 minutes before taking any medications and supplements. Synthetic chemicals and anti-caking agents typically added to pills, capsules, and powders will nullify the benefits of the sulfur crystals.
Finally, use the healing power of the sun to help your body manufacture its own, natural source of vitamin D so that your knees become less susceptible to a debilitating loss in cartilage. Weather permitting, try to arrange your schedule so that you bare as much of your skin as possible at least 3 times a week for 20-40 minutes at a time during the middle of the day (11am-3pm). Afterward, wait at least 40 minutes before showering or bathing so that there is sufficient time for the oils of your skin to make and absorb vitamin D.
