I felt sick after taking organic sulphur so I stopped

Customer says, I didn’t feel well after taking your organic sulphur for a couple of days, so I stopped. I consulted my alternative health care provider who concluded that my reaction must be due to impurities in your product that were having an adverse effect.

My response

I am truly sorry for the discomfort that you felt from taking organic sulphur. While organic sulphur is technically classified as a food, not a drug, some individuals who consume the product do experience an adverse reaction at the outset. It would be constructive and beneficial to provide a summary of your symptoms in order to suggest an effective strategy that will eliminate the discomfort.

In any event, a robust detoxification protocol such as organic sulphur can trigger an adverse response similar to a Herxheimer Reaction, which can occur when dead or injured bacteria release their endotoxins into the blood and tissues faster than the body can comfortably handle it. Symptoms include diarrhea, dizziness, headaches, nausea, or feelings similar to the flu.

While I can empathize with your reasoning that it was in your best interest to discontinue use of the product, Cellular Matrix Study director Patrick McGean has learned from talking to tens of thousands of customers worldwide that such a response is often indicative of the healing process where our bodies begin to eliminate a lifetime of accumulated toxins via the bowels. McGean contends that a sulphur-induced herx response can usually be remedied by immediately taking another dose with food and water and allowing the adverse symptoms to pass. Moreover, he recommends continuation of the twice-a-day sulphur regimen.

Possible cause

A negative reaction to organic sulphur may be the result of one or both of these factors:

1. Taking an insufficient amount of the product.
2. Dehydration.

Consuming a quarter or half teaspoon of organic sulphur once a day can result in increased fatigue, joint or muscle pain, skin rashes, photosensitivity, irritability, dizziness, sleep disturbances, muscle cramps, night sweats, hypertension, migraine headaches, or swollen glands. The recommended dosage for healthy adults weighing under 200 pounds (90.7 kg) is 1 teaspoon (5 gm) twice a day, while those who weigh 200 pounds or more are advised to take 2 teaspoons two times each day. The twice a day dosage is designed to replenish our bioavailable supply of sulphur that the body depletes and eliminates every 12 hours.

Now in its Third Edition, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj’s acclaimed book, “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water,” supports the idea that many symptoms reported by organic sulphur consumers are the result of being thirsty. To avoid dehydration, individuals following the Sulfur Protocol are advised to drink one ounce of water for every two pounds of body weight. For instance, if you weigh 160 pounds (72.6 kg), the recommended intake would be 80 ounces (2.4 liters) of water per day.
