Maintaining proper hydration is essential to reduce the likelihood of an adverse response to taking organic sulfur. Avoiding dehydration also applies to anyone who has experienced smoke inhalation from major fires. Recently, firestorms have raged in California, Portugal, and Spain, so there is a vital need for survivors in those areas to take proactive steps.
As indicated in Kiva Rose’s post dated June 29, 2011, coughing, bronchial spasms, overall inflammation of the respiratory tract, and fatigue are some of the most common symptoms seen in situations of either short term or long term exposure to smoke.
In 2015 Christo Lues, owner of the Eirene Health Shop, wrote an article about the subject of smoke inhalation published by Natural Medicine Talk that included this comment:
For Fire Fighters:
The biggest danger for our brave men and women directly in contact with the fires are dehydration and exhaustion. Huge amounts of water is a life saver, not only to put out the fires, but to relieve some of the effects of smoke and heat inhalation.
When combatting smoke inhalation, Lues warns against drinking large quantities of non-mineralized water that could upset your electrolyte balance. Adding a dissolvable mineral supplement such as ConcenTrace to drinking water was offered as a suggestion. Consult your physician or health provider to obtain confirmation as to whether a mineral supplement added to your drinking water is appropriate in your case.
In a 2015 article entitled, “Natural Treatments for Wildfire Smoke Inhalation,” Sonya McLeod described a number of herbs, vitamins, and supplements to take to mitigate smoke exposure. She cited studies done on sheep where researchers concluded that supplementation with L-Arginine, vitamin E, and vitamin C (a strong anti-oxidant) would help to protect the lungs.
