Sulfur is one of the few elements that transports oxygen right into your cells.

Fact: Bad bacteria cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment.

You can literally change your health with drinking enough clean water and supplementing with sulfur. Everything from the flora in your intestines to cell regeneration is affected by oxygen.
How much water? Take your weight. Divide by 2. Drink that number of ounces of water. So let’s say you are 180 pounds. Divide by 2 = 90. So 90 ounces of purified, chlorine-free water.

8 Facts about Sulfur you may not know:

1. Sulfur (chemical symbol S, atomic number 16) is one of the most important trace minerals on earth (around 5th most important) and is required for food production and a healthy body.

2. Sulfur is an essential element for all life.

3. Sulfur is required to regenerate our cells and if our body lacks Sulfur then our cells deteriorate and do not regenerate in a healthy manner, hence we become sick and illnesses such as cancer and heart problems occur.

4. Since 1954 chemical fertilizers were MANDATED by the US Government. Fertilizers containing ammonium nitrates and sulfates were used by farmers since being MANDATED, however, these fertilizers lack bioavailability and appear to have broken the Sulfur cycle in those countries that use these fertilizers.

5. Since 1954 the rate of disease in the US has increased by approximately 4,000% (percent) with a resultant decline in health, wealth, mental acuity and quality of life.

6.  A study referred to as “The Sulfur Study” is expected to demonstrate a connection between the lack of Sulfur and the inability of cells to regenerate in a healthy manner. Final results are expected to be released very soon, but preliminary results highlight that all modern diseases can be attributed to mineral deficiencies.

7. Diseases that never seemed to exist in our Grandparents time now grow at an unprecedented rate and the quality of our food has been greatly diminished.

8.  Our bodies comprise 4% Sulfur but do not store or make Sulfur. We should be getting the Sulfur we need from the foods we eat, however, since 1954 the use of chemical fertilizers has apparently broken the Sulfur cycle.

Daily Sulfur

Give Us Our Daily Sulfur
By Andreas Moritz
Sulfur is an essential mineral which the body uses to make many of its amino acids and proteins, according to a study done at the Institute of Human Nutrition, School of Medicine, University of Southhampton in the UK, in 2006.[1] The researchers of the study, titled The Effects of Sulfur Amino Acid Intake on Immune Function in Humans, revealed sulfur’s important role in keeping our immune system healthy and efficient. The study shows that sulfur in the form of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) may provide natural and effective support in alleviating inflammation throughout the body.
The best study on sulfur is perhaps the ongoing Live Blood Cellular Matrix Study (12 years at the time of writing this), which is not a scientific study by any means, but it consists of collecting anecdotal evidence from those who have benefited from using sulfur for a large number of different conditions.[2] In my opinion, when properly controlled as it is being done in this study, valuable real-life information can be gained that otherwise may remain concealed in “properly” conducted scientifically studies.
In essence, sulfur makes it possible for proteins and other nutrients and gases to pass across the membranes into the cells. Without it, cell membranes become leathery and less permeable, thereby forcing cells to become anaerobic and accumulate acid metabolic wastes. This can cause them to either turn cancerous, or to degenerate and die. Since sulfur cannot be stored in the body, not being amply supplied with it each day through food and drinking water causes us to die each day a little more through cell degeneration (called disease and aging).
Sulfur is naturally found in hard water. The populations in some Mediterranean countries where the water is partially hard tend to have a low incidence in heart disease and dementia. Iceland, which is particularly blessed with sulfur-rich water (Sulphur Springs), is ranked as the healthiest country in the world, according to a Forbes report (followed by Finland and Sweden).
Water softening, as well as fluoridation and chlorination of water strip the water of all its sulfur. This is one of the reasons sulfur deficiency is more pronounced in larger cities or communities supplied with treated, municipal water. Before the era of chemical fertilizers, our food was grown through the applications of sulfur-rich manures to the soil. The extensive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, on the other hand, has stripped our foods of almost all sulfur. Whatever sulfur is left in these foods, is removed through food processing, heating, and preservation methods. After chemical fertilizers were mandated in the US in 1954 the incidence of cancer and other major degenerative illnesses increased by an astounding 4000 percent.
Finland was one of the first countries in the world to recognize the fundamental dangers of modern farming methods and food production. In 1985, alarmed by the same obscene increase in degenerative disease at similar levels to those found in the US, Finland altogether banned the use of chemical fertilizers. This resulted in their disease rates to drop to one tenth of their 1985 rates. Today, Finland does not only boast one of the healthiest populations in the world, they are also the leading supplier of organically grown foods in Europe.  
In the body, sulfur is responsible for allowing cells to use oxygen effectively and for undergoing repair, if damaged. In fact, without enough sulfur in the body, healing cannot take place. Unless you eat mostly organically grown foods and drink natural, untreated water, you may not be able to keep the body at its optimal level of health and vitality.
Aging has very little to do with one’s age. Aging is rather a nutrient-deficiency syndrome that increasingly prevents the nourishment of the body’s organs and systems and forces the cells to hold on to their own waste products. Sulfur is that one single mineral that regulates cellular nourishment and waste removal. To do this successfully, the body requires about 750mg of sulfur each day. The sulfur can draw toxins out of the cells, even fat cells and brain cells. It increases circulation, enzyme activity, strengthens the immune system, reduces recovery time after injury, reduces muscle pain and soreness, promotes healthy growth of hair and nails, helps with cancer, osteoporosis, depression, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s  disease, and diabetes.  I cannot think of any inflammatory illness where sulfur-deficiency does not also play a key role. Almost all diseases are due to inflammation.
Toxins in our environment, food additives, pesticides and herbicides sprayed on foods and into the air, Chemtrail toxins (such as aluminum oxides and barium), vaccines, radiation toxins created by cell phones and wireless devices, etc., all deplete sulfur in the body. Remember, it takes a lot of sulfur to remove just the internally generated waste products each day. There is not much sulfur left to deal with the unnaturally supplied toxins, which  can then easily overtax the liver, kidneys, heart and brain.
Cleaning out the liver and gallbladder, colon, and kidneys, combined with eating mostly organically grown foods and natural untreated water, are among the basic steps to restore the body health and slow the aging process.
Vegetarian foods that are particularly rich in sulfur include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, watercress, and radish. If you suffer from an illness, though, and require extra sulfur to support the healing and repair of damaged cells in your body, you may consider eating extra sulfur as part for your daily diet.
If you are taking any medication, make sure to leave at least 30 minutes between taking your medication and taking sulfur. The chemicals would quickly deplete the sulfur and thus render it ineffective.
Note: The sulfur typically sold in the form of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) supplements is usually ineffective. Most MSM products sold commercially contain less than 35 percent sulfur, and some MSM products contain no sulfur at all. This is largely due to the crushing of the methylsulfonylmethane crystals into powder and adding anti-cake agents.  Additives of packaging may also block or neutralize the bio availability of the sulfur contained in the MSM. I recommend that you only use organic sulfur in its crystal form and lignin (wood) based. (See Product Details.)
Possible cleansing reactions:
Because Sulfur is an effective cleanser it may initially lead to mild cleansing reactions such as intestinal gas. Do not become discouraged if it doesn’t make you feel good right away. It can easily take 3-4 weeks before the body’s cell membranes become unclogged and proper cell oxygenation kicks in. The less toxic the body is the faster the results will become apparent. In any case, the sulfur is equally effective for everyone because it is an essential food, not a medicine (although natural food acts like medicine).  Without sulfur, we could not live even for one minute.
If taking the sulfur at the recommend dosage makes you feel uncomfortable at first, use a smaller dosage and slowly work up to a teaspoon (5g) twice a day. Those with a severe degenerative disease may take as much as 1 tablespoon (15g) twice daily but should also start at no more than 1 teaspoon twice a day.
It can take up to 3-4 months for damaged or weak cells to reach the end of their natural cycle and for new, healthy, properly oxygenated cells to replace them. In addition, a lifetime of absorbing toxins buried under layers of fat and insulating mucopolysaccharides (mucous) cannot be undone over night.So be patient. It is far better to know something as pure and cleansing as sulfur is causing a little temporary discomfort than not to notice  the body slowly suffocating in a pool of toxins.
A Simple Taste Test:
When eaten straight, organic sulfur has a bitter taste to it, which is much more noticeable when the body is quite toxic. The less toxins there are in the body, the less bitter the sulfur tastes. So if it tastes very bitter to you, you can be certain you are quite deficient in it.
To make it easier on your taste buds, you can put the sulfur in your mouth and immediately swig a little lime or lemon juice and its flakes will melt in your mouth as you swallow. Then drink an 8-ounce (240ml) glass of non chlorinated, non fluoridated water (these chemicals will nullify the benefits of the ingested sulfur).  Alternately, dissolve it in a glass of warm water with some lime or lemon juice added, and perhaps a little raw honey.
Organic sulfur has no known toxicity. Even if you took too much of it, it would simply be excreted by the body.

 Sulfur Deficiency

 

Dr. Gabriel Cousens MD, author of Spiritual Nutrition is very adamant about the body’s need for sulfur …

“Sulfur connects the spirit and the body, mind to action, thoughts to action, and is the bridge between the worlds of the higher planes and the lower planes. Sulfur deficiency has been associated with depression, irritability, anger, rage, remorse, more emotional reliability, and more fear-based living and hypersensitivity. A normal mind is calmer and you are able to concentrate better. Sulfur is an important part of brain function and important to the heart, ligaments, joint function, liver, adrenals, pineal, and pituitary function.”

Sulfur is a mineral in our body that is needed for enzyme activity, hormone balance, and function of the immune system. It is an important component of collagen and connective tissues that assists the body in preventing inflammation and facilitating connective tissue repair. It is very useful for healing skin and digestive problems.

 Top 20 signs of  sulfur deficiency:

    Itchy skin or scalp

    Eczema

    Acne

    Diaper rash

    Migraine headaches

    Flatulence

    indigestion

    Vomiting

    Diarrhea

    Hemorrhoids

    Impotence

    Painful and irregular menstruation

    Sore throat

    Toothache

    Nosebleeds

    Measles

    Joint pain

    Hay fever

    Fever (hot and cold sweats)

    Bed wetting

    Breastfeeding problems

 

Some key sulfur-rich foods are:

    Aloe vera

    Artichoke

    Arugula

    Avocado

    Bee pollen

    Brussel sprouts

    Dill

    Hemp seeds

    Horseradish

    Kale

    Legumes

    Lima beans

    Peaches

    Pears

    Radishes

    Spinach

    Strawberries

    Tomatoes

    Turnips

If you are noticing any of these symptoms, turn up the volume on your sulfuric foods.

Organic Sulfur is a Food…. Because of chemical fertilizers there is very little if any in our foods…. Unless you grow your foods organically or buy Organic foods you are most likely Sulfur deficient

Chemical fertilizers

What is the fertilizer in our food made of and what effects does it have on our health? How does the fertilizer now, in terms of mineral content, differ from the fertilizer of the pre-industrial age?

Pre industrial age fertilizers were organic, natural decomposition of organic material mainly manures. Chemical fertilizers are produced from high temperature processing of organic materials such as coal tar and later crude oil. The use of temperatures above the vaporization point of sulfur as described by the petrochemical company’s own web sites appear to be the issue.

Those cultures which have organic fertilized food supplies have lower disease than those who use artificial forms of plant foods. Finland banned the use of chemical fertilizers because of they feared the cadmium and its perceived toxic abilities in 1985. Their epidemiology has shown a 10 fold improvement compared to that of the US in 1985 which had almost identical numbers.

This is a story that may be too convoluted to tell briefly. But regarding sulfur hopefully this will suffice. Chemical fertilizers were first developed in the 1700s by a Polish researcher. Not until Farbin ( Bayer ) adopted this research and began producing chemical fertilizers from coal tar in 1860 did their use affect those who ate the food. Two medical events which occurred in Germany we feel could be directly related to these fertilizers. 1906 Dr Alzheimer described “ women lost in their own minds.” otherwise Alzheimer’s which had not observed in countries other than Germany until after the adoption of the use of these chemical fertilizers. Most of Europe had adopted these fertilizers before the start of WW2. In 1920, Dr. Otto Warburg had an opportunity to see enough cancer to describe the basis for his Noble Prize work while cancer was less evident in other countries. In 1938 when the price of gas and crude oil was cheap Prescott Bush [the grandfather of current (2008) U.S. President George W. Bush] and Nelson Rockefeller [the son of John D. Rockefeller] contracted with Farbin I.G. to develop a crude oil based fertilizer in the West Nile Region of Africa. That formula which is known as Ammonium Sulfate and Ammonium Nitrate is the leading formula for most chemical fertilizers used world wide.

These fertilizers are devoid of sulfur due to the 380 degree F temperatures at which they are “crackled.” The other issue is that these fertilizers bind up any free sulfur available in rain water from the sulfur cycle.

Sulfur is the forgotten nutrient as stated by Dr. Beth Ley, Ph.D. Sulfur is the third or fourth most important mineral ( element ) necessary for healthy metabolism yet sulfur is not discussed in medical or scientific literature. The assumption is that we get all of the sulfur we need from our food we eat and that may have been true until we changed the way we feed our food.

A review of the epidemiology of the US since 1954 when chemical fertilizers were mandated shows as much as a 4,000% increase in cancer and other disease entities. The responses from our Study members appear to suggest that by adding sulfur to their diets these disease entities have been reversed or addressed in a positive manner.

Finland is an interesting case for the effects of chemical fertilizers. Fearing the cadmium these fertilizers contained Finland banned their use in 1985. Nowhere was sulfur ever mentioned regarding these fertilizers.

Other cultures such as the Amish which use only organic fertilizers also enjoy fewer diseases though we must rely on the fewer studies regarding their “epidemiology.” Okinawa and South Korea have lower disease rates compared to the rest of Japan or North Korea. Brazil has higher disease rates than Argentina which relies on manure rather than chemical fertilizers.

The manufacturers of chemical fertilizers argue that their products produce greater crop yields, but the question is whether the nutritional value is also higher compared to the gross tonnage. [a very interesting point]

“Without a constant supply of sulfur we are, in effect, dying each day through cellular degeneration.” What are some ways a person can get an adequate supply of sulfur in their body to stay healthy?

Prior to the use of chemical fertilizers, we and many nutritional researchers as stated in Jack Challem’s article the “Sulfur Solution” our nutritional need for sulfur was supplied by all of the food we ate. We argue that since we have altered the bio available sulfur our food receives have become sulfur deficient. Grass eating livestock plus organically grown produce could again supply our need for sulfur. Those cultures which eat organically grown foods are not sulfur deficient. Garlic, green onions, kale, broccoli and spinach are high in sulfur, if grown organically. Sulfur is a mineral which is not made by plants or animals, it is either in our soils or NOT. Until we return to a more organic agribusiness then supplementing is the only way we see to allow our bodies to stay healthy regarding our need for sulfur. We feel it is important to remember that we and all living organisms are cells which are combined within a matrix to form all of our “parts” and in turn our whole.
