Organic Sulfur – A Super Detox And Metabolic Support Agent

Thrive-JeffBell_Close_Cropped_Headshot_10-29-2013Since the advent of commercial agriculture, and particularly chemical synthetic fertilizers, a key ingredient of human health has gone missing from the human diet.  This is Organic Sulfur.

Our livers must have it in order to detoxify our bodies properly.  Our cells must have it in order to generate the energy we need to be healthy and to live. It plays a key role in both oxygen transfer across the cell membranes and in essential nutrient transfer as well.  Sulfur deficiency may well be responsible for more human disease and ill health than any other single factor.

Many health “experts”, physicians, health researchers, biologists, naturopaths and related health professionals have long recognized this. They have recommended “MSM”, or “MethylSulfonylMethane”, an organic, bioavailable form of sulfur. MSM is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH3)2SO2.  Although the FDA has not endorsed its use, and in the U.S., conventional medicine mostly does not recognize its value, there is a large body of compelling evidence that supports its near miracle status among many natural healing professionals.  Much of this body of evidence is anecdotal.  Some is based on classical scientific studies conducted in other parts of the world, outside of the U.S.A.

Many top German health clinics specializing in cancer treatment, and that have the best track records for cancer patients in the world, routinely include high quality MSM as part of their treatment.   It is also known to help with most forms of arthritis, and other joint degenerative conditions.  It has been shown to be extremely helpful in boosting the health of the human immune system.

The Cellular Matrix Study has even demonstrated that high quality MethylSulfonylMethane can support dramatic recoveries from many mental and emotional conditions, including autism, substance abuse, chronic depression and more.

The quality of the MSM is crucial.  One of the factors that has led many in the conventional health sector in the U.S. to erroneously conclude that MSM has little value in human health is the difficulty in obtaining MSM in effective form.  Various forms of MSM are readily available in various health food stores throughout the U.S.  It also is available from a great many web sites.  Some is quite expensive –  as high as $69.00 per pound.  I also have seen it for a lot less.  However, most of the MSM that I have found on the market is completely ineffective.  I have personally tried MSM from more than 45 different sources.  So far, I have only found 2 that really work the way they should.

Of these two, by far the most effective is the MethylSulfonylMethane from The Cellular Matrix Study.  In order to help differentiate pure, bioavailable and effective Organic Sulfur from the usual “MSM products”, in the rest of this post I will refer to the good stuff as Organic Sulfur.  The Cellular Matrix Study does not sell their Organic Sulfur on the web.  They only sell via phone.  So as a convenience to our clients we now offer this same high quality Organic Sulfur for sale directly from our web site via the Buy Now Buttons below.   We are offering it as health benefit and convenience, with just enough markup to cover our costs to handle it for you.  I know you can easily find MSM for much less.  But the chances are it will not provide the results you are looking for.

In case you do want to do a bit of comparison shopping I want to let you know what to look for:  Effective Organic Sulfur should always be:

  • Organic
  • Precipitated directly from lignin-based DMSO (100% plant-derived – not from petrolium or other non-biological sources)
  • Never processed past the point of precipitation into its crystalline matrix *
  • 100% free of any anti-caking agents
  • Completely free of any and all preservatives
  • And free of all “flow agents” – (You will never find it in pill, capsule or cream form free of flow agents.)

*  To be effective, the crystals must be quite large – about 3 times the size of table salt crystals.  If the Organic Sulfur is refined beyond that point so that the crystals are smaller, then it does not seem to work well.

Any of the additives frequnetly used with almost all MSM products interfere with the body’s uptake of the sulfur and render it ineffective.  Any that has been put into capsules will not work, or at least not well.  This is due to the complex industrial process of encapsulating vitamins and supplements.

Here are 2 simple tests you can do on a sample of MSM that will help you determine if it is pure enough and of high enough quality to be likely to be safe and effective.  (Do these AFTER you have confirmed that your sample meets the requirements in the bullet-point list above.)  Take about a teaspoon of your MSM sample and try to dissolve it in a half glass of drinkikng water at room temperature.  It should take at least a few minutes to dissolve.  It should not readily and quickly go into solution.  If it does you can be assured that it contains anti-caking agents and probably other additives to help it dissolve.  It may not be safe and it certainly will not work well in your body.  If y0ur sample passes this first test, then here is a second test:  Allow your solution of dissolved MSM to dry out.  In other words, let the water evaporate.  This may take a day or so, but it is worth it – it will reveal a critical quality of your MSM sample.  Once it has dried, there should be obvious crystals formed by the sulfur residue at the bottom of the glass.  If no crystals have formed then your sample is certainly of poor quality and cannot be expected to provide any significant benefits.

The Organic Suflur from The Cellular Matrix Study fully meets these criteria for purity and effectiveness.  We offer it in 3 sizes:  2 pound lots, 5 pound lots and 9 pound lots.  By buying in larger lots you will have the convenience of less frequent ordering and you save significantly on shipping and handling.

To help you determine how long a pound will last, here are the serving size guidelines recommended by The Cellular Matrix Study, which is the leading authority on all things to do with Organic Sulfur:  A pound of Organic Sulfur is equal to 453 grams.  A teaspoon of Organic Sulfur is 4 grams.  A tablespoon of Organic Sulfur is 12 grams.

So a pound of Organic Sulfur equals approximately 113 teaspoon-sized servings.  (That’s a level cook’s measuring teaspoon.)

A pound of Organic Sulfur equals approximately 37 tablespoon-sized servings.  (That’s a level cook’s measuring tablespoon.)

Here are the serving guidelines from The Cellular Matrix Study:

Under normal conditions, take a teaspoon in the morning, another in the mid-afternoon, and a third teaspoon serving in the early afternoon is appropriate.

If one is working to overcome a chronic illness, or is exposed to conditions requiring body detoxification, those servings sizes can and should be increased to a full tablespoon of the Organic Sulfur per serving.

We follow these guidelines.   We use cooking measuring spoons to measure out the appropriate amount of Organic Sulfur into a glass of drinking water.  We drink this about 30 to 45 minutes after a meal for the morning and evening servings, and in between lunch and supper for the mid-afternoon serving.

Also, because sulfur and chlorine are antagonists that cancel each other out, if you do not have drinking water that is chlorine-free, please heat the water to approximately 130 degress fahrenheit before you stir in your Organic Sulfur.  Of course, a better alternative is to have a good water system that removes any chlorine.  (There is no minimum daily requirement for chlorine!  It does not imrpove your health to drink it!)

These suggested serving sizes  are for adults, averaging 150 pounds.  For children and much smaller, lighter adults, scale the amounts down proportionally.

    I read about making a slurry of MSM and DMSO and applying it to a joint. I was wondering if one could mix it with Emu oil which also penetrates.

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted January 22, 2012 at 6:37 pm | Permalink

      Hi Kelley,

      Thanks for a really great question. I would not use it with the Emu oil. While the Emu oil does have some penetrating power and will absorb transdermally to some degree, it will not do well to pull the organic sulfur through the skin and into the body with it. And that is what makes this protocol so powerful for repairing damaged joints. The DMSO pulls the Organic Sulfur through the skin and into the joint, where they synergistically work to rejuvenate the cells and repair the damage. DMSO will pull anything with a molecular weight of 1,000 or less right through the skin. In fact, that is one of the reasons why I make such a big deal of making sure the skn is clean and completely free of toxins before you apply DMSO to it.

      I have tried using DMSO to get other substances deep into the body. But you had best know what you are doing if you intend to try that. Using it with the organic sulfur in the form of high-quality MSM has proven to be both safe and effective. And DMSO, itself has proven to be safe and effective. The only adverse reactions I have ever heard of, (I have been using it for over 50 years, now), have been the result of people not cleanig the skin properly, first and then accidentally pulling things into the body that don’t belong in the body.

    The Cellular Matrix Study offers Organic Sulfur (not Organic MSM).
    The Cellular Matrix Study offers Sulfur that is bio-available.
    If you are offering us The Cellular Matrix Study bio-available Organic Sulfur why isn’t it clear listed it as such near the Buy Now buttons?

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted November 20, 2012 at 10:48 am | Permalink

      Hi Terry,

      The really important distinction is that the organic sulfur that we offer and that we recommend, regardless of where it is from is not the same as the MSM that is so widely sold on the Internet, in health food stores and the like. Almost all of that is over-refined, and/or has additivies. The result is that it works poorly in the body or not at all.

      I think that all of my posts, articles and writings about using organic sulfur to correct the ubiquitous sulfur deficiency in our diets and to address various health problems, make clear this distinction.

      So, yes I do get my organic sulfur from “The Cellular Matrix Study”, but I do not see why that is so important. What is important is that it fully meets the criteria for being maximally effective. And, again, I make clear over and over again what characteristics are crucial for the organic sulfur to be safe and effecitve.

      Lastly, please understand that my web site and my practice are not “product centric”. I do offer some products that my clients have told me they otherwise often have difficulty finding in the right forms and in good quality. I do this as a convenience to my clients and others who wish to take advantage of this source. I mark these products up just enough to cover my handling costs, and in some cases with a very small amount left over to help defray some of the costs of my research, which are considerable.

      What I am trying to say is that I am not like sites that focus on selling large volumes of product, however they can, as their source of revenue. In contrast, my practice and my work is about finding, distilling and sharing information and helping individuals to get well, often when they have tried many other approaches without getting good results.

      As further evidence that I am not just pushing product for revenues, please note that there are no banner ads or other ads anywhere on my site. I have had plenty of offers of significant money if I would just place an ad here and there. I have turned all such offers down.

      Lastly, I have no objection to listing the source of the organic sulfur that I am offering. I will try to get to it. However, it takes time and work to re-write those pages and no one has ever asked before. My research and work with specific individuals takes priority.

        That was great to read… BECAUSE you are the only distributor of bio-available Organic Sulfur that I have found that has been so forthcoming.

        Thank you for being helpful, Jeff.

        FYI: There was not one other bio-available sulfur website that was willing to divulge what you just did, when asked this question. They claimed that the source of their ‘relabeled to their website name sulfur product’ was proprietary information.

        Thank you for your kind words. I freely disclose anything that I know to be the truth. When it comes to health, the People’s Right To Know ALWAYS trumps anything to do with proprietary information. The whole idea of so-called “proprietary information” is antithetical to the rights that we have to manage our own health and to make informed choices, which requires that we have as much information at possible.

        In fact, so-called “proprietary information” is the principle that the cosmetic industry, and now the purveyors of GMOs and foods containing GMOs are using to hide what they are doing from the rest of us. I am absolutely opposed to any assertion of so-called “proprietary rights” when it comes to anything to do with health.

        To your great health!

    Thank you for your kind words. Please e-mail at: jeff@myhealthoptimizer.com when you have something for me to look at. I am eager to see what creative ideas you develop.

    By the way, just to clarify, I am not a very technical person. I have no training and not even much experience in web design, no training in coding for web sites, and not even really much in the way of marketing. My expertise is in the research and practice of holistic health plans for dealing with serious chronic illnesses of various types. And that will remain my real focus. It is my passion and my mission in life, and I do not see that changing for any reason. There are just too many people who really need my help and there seem to be very few people who can effectively fill this need. I can’t think of a more rewarding and valuable way for me to spend my life.

    Is it ok to take organic sulfur while taking multi vitamins?

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted July 21, 2013 at 9:19 pm | Permalink

      Hi Cherie,

      A great question! It is fine to take the organic sulfur and also take vitamins and supplements. But they should not be taken at the same time. The reason is that one of the tremendous benefits of taking organic sulfur, (or should I say eating the organic sulfur since it was a plentiful component of the standard human diet a mere 70 years of so ago before the widespread advent of synthetic fertilizer into the majority of the world’s food production systems), is that this form of bioavailable sulfur readily attaches to many other substances. This is of great benefit because it is how the liver safely gets rid of toxins it has sequestered. For example, it combines elemental lead with the sulfur to form lead sulfate before it excretes it. Lead sulfate is still toxic, but far less so than elemental lead. So this minimizes any tissue damage that could otherwise occur from the lead while it is on its way out of the body.

      This same sulfur could easily combine with many of the components of more supplements, vitamins or medications. So to maximize the benefits of both the sulfur and the supplements or vitamins it is best to take the organic sulfur by itself. I take mine three times a day, approximately 45 minutes before my meals. Or if I occasionally miss, then I take it an hour or more after a meal. And I do separate all vitamins and supplements from the sulfur by the same time intervals.

      While I am at it, let me share my opinion of multi-vitamins: I am not a fan. The reason is that we are all very, very different. So, for example, while one person may need more copper, many people already have too much. So it is almost impossible, (I actually think it is impossible), to create a multi-vitamin that has high enough amounts to be effective and that will still be appropriate for everyone. When multi-vitamin manufacturers attempt to do so, the result is usually something that is of little benefit to anyone, or something that benefits some but at least has the potential to harm others. Therefore, I prefer analyzing the needs of each person I work with, and making sure they are taking just what they need, and not taking what they do not.

      I hope the above is helpful for you.

      To your great health!

    Hello Reggie,

    Thank you very much for your kind words about this web site and about the articles and information I share on it. I am very glad that you find the information to be of value. That was and is my intent in writing and posting the information. This is my passion and my life’s work so it is very nice to know that my time and effort is making a difference.

    Lately, (for the past few months), I have not been posting information as frequently as I had been. Instead, my time has been divided between helping people recover from very serious illnesses, doing more research and working on a complete book about using 100% alternative methods and protocols to cure and prevent cancer. I have just completed some crucial research, and I am nearing completion on the draft of the cancer book, so I intend to resume posting more frequently again. I really have been missing the sharing, which even though via the Internet, feels very personal and which I find to be very fulfilling, especially when people tell me how valuable it is.

    I have been blessed to do this work for over 35 years and feel that I have lots of valuable information to share.

    Thanks for your encouragement and support.

    To your great health!

    I can’t afford $40/lb for your MSM, so I purchased AniMed MSM for $5.60/lb which has no fillers or flow agents. The AniMed particle size is not quite as large as your flake size, however it forms beautiful crystals when the water it is dissolved in evaporates and the crystals do not completely dissolve in room temp water. From what I can tell, the only difference between your MSM and mine is the flake size and mine is $34/lb cheaper!

      Hi Dennis,

      Thanks for posting your comment. I’m glad that you found a product that seems like it will work for you. In reply, I have a few comments to share with you and whoever else reads this:

      1. The Organic Sulfur that I offer in the form of pure, organic methyl sulfonyl methane or “MSM” is not $40 per pound. There are people out there selling for that much and more. So I am not sure where you got that price. My price for 2 pounds is $31.05 per pound, and it goes down for larger quantities. To be sure, that is much more than the $5.60 that you paid for the AniMed MSM that you are using. But there is a reason for that.

      2. The Organic Sulfur that I offer is pure, organic sulfur in MSM form, that has been carefully and properly distilled under very tight quality controls, with frequent testing and verification. And the source is 100% pure, organic plant lignum. Since the AniMed is a veterinary product and does not make any claim to be organic it is unlikely made under the same tight quality controls. In fact, it is almost impossible that it could be, as the cost would then be high enough so that it couple not be sold for anything close to the price you paid.

      3. And the flake size certainly does make a difference. How much of a difference is very hard to tell. I think that might even differ for person to person who is using it.

      Lastly, I will just say that I offer the Organic Sulfur that I offer as a convenience to my clients, who often otherwise are not able to find a safe and reliable source for this very valuable substance for improving health. I do not do it to make money. It is not a profit center for me. Nor are any of the small list of other supplements and aids to health that I offer. If you look at my web site and ask yourself if it looks like a site that is about making money I think the answer will be obvious. This site is all about sharing valuable information. I have had the site up for a little over 5 years now, and so far it has never even generated enough money to pay for its own costs. I am actually proud to say that.

      If you have found a less expensive solution for your health problems, I am happy for you. That is terrific. And thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with me.

      To your great health,

      Jeff Bell

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted December 24, 2013 at 9:26 am | Permalink

      Hi Emely, Thank you for your kind words about my site and my blog. I do try hard to make sure it is packed with valuable information. I am far from a professional at writing. I have a ton of training and studying in the area of health, both conventional and alternative. But I have almost no training in writing.

      I have a pretty simple and straight-forward approach to creating each new blog post. I go about my work, (mostly research and practice), and when I come across an issue or area where I feel that people really need help and where some uncommon information will be helpful I write a post. And here’s how I do it: I start by writing a simple description of the purpose for the post. I sometimes think of this as a sort of mission statement for the post – what is it intended to accomplish? Why am I writing it? Then I make a quick and simple list of the basic points I want to cover. I usually use MS Word to write these so that I can easily change the order around until there is a logic that seems to make sense. Then I fill in as much detail as I think needs to be in the post. Lastly, I read it slowly, out loud to see if it is clear and if there are any changes that cry out to be made. When I am satisfied that it clearly communicates what I am trying to share, I post it.

      One more tip: If you are finding that when you first start to write things do not seem clear, you might try something I have heard that some writers do: Deliberately write nonsense for a little while until you get past whatever is blocking the clarity and inspiration. For example, you might just write a few sentences about not feeling that your writing is clear. I’m guessing that if you do this, you will find that the clarity appears very quickly. Then write what you really wanted to write and discard the nonsense part that you started out writing.

      I hope this helps.

      To your great health!

    I use an Organic Sulfur put out by Genesis PURE, a company owned and operated by a Naturopath by the name of Dr. Lindsey Duncan. I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on this particular Organic Sulfur product:

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted April 28, 2014 at 9:40 am | Permalink

      Hi Tom,

      This looks like it is a good product. I have not personally tested it, so I am going on what the company that sells it says about it. From the factors they make a point to describe, it is clear that they at least understand the issues. They mention no fillers, distillation from 100% plant lignum, etc.

      That said, I have two comments:

      1. I think their recommendation for most, “normal body weight adults” is a bit low. They recommend a teaspoon in the morning and again in the evening or towards the end of the day. I would recommend at least adding a teaspoon during the middle of the day. I personally use 3 tablespoons per day. But that is because I know what a powerful detox agent it is and how much we are surrounded these days by dangerous toxins of all kinds. And I know that if I take too much, (up to a very high level), it can do no harm. So I would rather be safe than sorry.

      2. I tried to see how much organic sulfur is in one of their containers that they list for $52.95. I did not see a figure, but it looks like it must be a pound, or maybe a bit less than a pound. I got that from the number and size of servings. In that case, I would say the price is a bit higher than I think it should be. Market price for really good organic sulfur should be closer to $35 per pound or a bit less. It is available through http://www.MyHealthOptimizer.com for $31.95 per pound in 2 pound lots, and for a bit less than that in larger quantities.

      To your great health!

        Thanks for the info. Jeff. Actually, you would have seen the retail price listed, I get it through the membership program with a 25% discount along with a number of other products that are exclusive to Genesis PURE, so I actually don’t mind that their Organic Sulfur may be a little on the higher end. Member price is $39.95 for it, and it is listed as a 14.1oz container, so a little less than the 1 pound you are talking about. Some of the other products I use are the 100% pure superfruit juices like Acai, Goji and Mangosteen (they are marked as 100% pure whichever fruit is in the bottle, nothing else added, and come from wild harvested fruits,), as well as the liquid cleanse that comes from Dr. Lindsey Duncan’s over 30 years of experience running several Naturopathic clinics, the GoYin which is an awesome proprietary blend based in Traditional Asian Medicine and really does what it’s advertised to do, and some of the Sports Nutrition products, which are great because they contain all natural and organic ingredients (I keep trying to tell my fitness friends to quit using stuff that has sucralose and artificial ingredients in it… YUCK). Anyway, it sounds like the Sulfur I am getting is well in line with what you have stated and since it’s more of a convenience issue to stay with GP on it, and I would probably have to pay shipping charges with any other company that I already pay with my Genesis PURE order regardless, it makes sense for me personally to stay with them. It does ultimately sound like we are getting a pretty much identical product though, and it’s good to see great information about this stuff. Thanks for putting out this blog post!

        Tom, Sounds what you are doing makes perfect sense. Except you might want to increase your daily amount of the Organic Sulfur. I agree that you should stay with your current source. And it is not a problem for me. I don’t really make money selling products. Mostly, I do it as a convenience for my clients who are using supplements that are otherwise hard to get in really good forms. So I just about break even on these things.

        Thanks Jeff. I sent you a PM to the e-mail you have listed here. I do wonder if the reason why Dr. Duncan’s recommendation on how much OS to use is slightly less than yours is because of the wide variety of other powerful nutrition packed products also offered by Genesis PURE. Look at Mangosteen, as an example, I researched this fruit through independent sources, such as Dr. James Duke who spent a career with the USDA and identifies over 200 benefits from this one fruit. Additionally, if you looked at what’s inside the Genesis PURE Daily Build, a liquid multivitamin that I can’t find anything that compares, you are getting a LOT of nutrition right there. All that said, I do know that Organic Sulfur is a product that your really can’t take too much of, kind of like B-12 that some GP products are really packed with. Either way, I do tell folks when it comes to OS that they should start with the recommended dose and if they want to step it up it’s fine and won’t hurt them. I also agree with the recommendation I have seen from GP to start OS slowly as it is a powerful detox product and some people get headaches when they start because of the toxins in their body being loosened up and starting to make their way out of the body.

        Tom, Actually I think my recommendation stands no matter what else one is doing. The organic sulfur is a basic building block for much of what goes on in a healthy body. And we cannot store it, nor manufacture it in our bodies. So I think Dr. Duncan’s recommendation is simply too low.

        And for the record, there are supplements that you can take too much of. B-12 is one.

      • Tom
        Posted April 29, 2014 at 6:44 am | Permalink

        Thanks Jeff. I was basing the B-12 comment on several articles I have read by reputable sources that suggest that B-12 is one of the few B Vitamins that your body simply eliminates if you were to consume more than what is needed, but I will look into that a little further. I think I just did a Google search for “Too Much B-12” and “B-12 labs 1500” when I friend of mine stated that he was taking a lot of it and his lab tests were around 1500, higher than what the scale shows as an average range. I found numerous articles that stated that not to be an issue, and I generally look only at sources that appear to be reputable like practicing physicians that have no direct ties to supplements. I do read people’s blogs, such as yours, but generally won’t cite them when talking to people unless they clearly line up with the research I have done and what I find from what I consider a solid, reputable source (your blog, by the way, appears very well researched, so I am sure I will be looking at some of your other posts in the near future, keep doing what you do brother). In any case, as with anything in life, I am sure we agree on many issues and disagree on many others. Everyone has to make the best decision for themselves based on the knowledge that they gain. Sometimes that knowledge is right, other times it is wrong, but in the end all we really have to go on is what we learned from the education we are privileged to receive. Great discussion, and I thank you for it, and I did gain something from this. I’m sure it won’t be the last either.

        Hi Tom,

        In some cases when there seems to be reputable but conflicting “truth” about issues such as B-12 overloads. I can find research that strongly suggests that there is no issue and other research that equally strongly shows that the potential for an overload in the body is real. If you weed out the obviously bad research, or that poorly executed to inaccurately reported you are still left with conflicting “truth”. I encounter this sort of thing in many areas pertaining to human health. Here is my take: There is tremendous variation among human beings. So, to take the example of B-12, overload is likely not a problem for some human beings and is a potential problem for others. This can be explained by the complexity of the metabolic functions involved and the efficiency of any given individual’s detox pathways.

        Theory is great. But what is actually going on in the real world trumps all for me. So I use situations like this to inform me and remind me to be careful and pay attention. Then I carefully monitor the actual results and make adjustments along the way. That seems to be the most prudent, safest and most effective approach.

    Any comments on topical application of sulfur via creams etc
    vs ingesting sulfur?

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted July 2, 2014 at 9:11 am | Permalink

      Hi Ann,

      I do not recommend that. It mostly will not work. As my many blog posts and articles point out, since the sulfur is so active, (which is why it is such an excellent means of getting toxins out of the body), that is combines with a great many substances. So it is likely that at least something in the cream will combine with it and render it ineffective. Further, the amount you need to get into the body would make trying to get it via skin absorption an impractical approach. Ingesting is the best way. It also will be a lot less expensive than any other way.

    I learned about your site and this topic in particular from my son’s GAPS practitioner/holistic pediatrician. She said that you have seen improvements in language in children with autism who are “non-verbal”. I would love to learn about these improvements as well as any other benefits you have seen in the case of autism. I have an 8 year old son who has minimal language and is on the spectrum.

      Hi Erin,

      Yes, I have seen some good results. GAPS is great. But there are a few other things I recommend and do. I check the body for heavy metal toxins and mineral imbalances. I use a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis for that. (If interested search my site for HTMA and you will find what you need.) And there are a few other specific supplements that usually make a big difference. Feel free to e-mail if you want to discuss specifics.

      To your great health,
      Jeff

      Hi Ed,

      I would not necessarily say that the sulfur won’t work at all, but it certainly will not work as well. But then, nothing else in the body will, either if one is not adequately hydrated.

      And if you are just starting out with the sulfur and you are under-hydrated, you may find that you get headaches and other symptoms because your body is being prompted to detox long-held toxins but does not have the water to carry them out of the body. So I recommend making sure you are well-hydrated, no matter whether you are taking organic sulfur or not.

      To your great health,
      Jeff

      Hi Adriano,

      I think the organic sulfur would be an excellent addition to what you are already doing. Gerson Therapy centers around really good detoxing, and the sulfur will really help with that. It also helps with liver health and liver cleansing, on an ongoing basis. I also want to let you know that I specialize in helping people overcome cancers. My clients have named me: “The Overcoming Cancer Coach”, and I would add a few other things to Gerson to increase your probability of success. If you want details, e-mail me so we can connect and discuss how I would go about helping you.

      To your great health,
      Jeff

    Hi,

    Thanks for your kind words about my site. I think it is possible to waste lots of time on the web. But there also are a lot of sites that are worthwhile. I do the best I can to make sure mine of one of the worthwhile ones. And if you do actually learn some practical health information that you can apply and live a longer, happier and more healthy life as a result, that does not sound like a waste of time to me.

    To your great health,

    Great site! I am fairly new to the sulphur world. I have been mixing my sulphur in room temp water with Emergen-c and apple cider vinegar. Does this reduce the effectiveness?

    Thanks

      Thanks for your kind words about the site. I do my best to provide valuable health information that is not often easy to find anywhere else.

      IN answer to your question, I would recommend NOT combining the organic sulfur, (in the form of absolutely pure MSM, with NO additives whatsoever and not over-distilled), with anything other than pure, good, clean drinking water. One of the great health benefits of the organic sulfur in this form is that it is highly active, chemically, and it readily combines with just about any other chemicals. So that makes it great for helping to get toxins out of the body. But the downside is that it also combines with things you don’t want it to, such as the healthy bio-chemicals that are in the apple cider vinegar, for example.

      I recommend separating each serving of the sulfur that you take by 45 minutes or more from anything else that you ingest.

      And, BTW, I am not much of a fan of Emergency-C. There are better ways to get vitamin C into your body.

      To your great health,

      Jeff Bell

    Today, I purchased from you two pounds of organic sulfur. I can’t wait to receive it.
    Previously, I have been buying and using MSM but have decided to switch to organic sulfur after reading your blogs.

    My question to you is: Should I be taking Vitamin C in conjunction with the organic sulfur? If so, what Vitamin C brand do you recommend?

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted July 24, 2015 at 1:35 pm | Permalink

      Hi Joyce,
      Sorry I missed this and did not respond sooner. My apologies. I have been swamped.

      Here’s the answer: For best results you should NOT take the sulfur with anything other than plain water, and if the taste is objectionable, then squeeze a half an organic lime into it. Please follow the user guide that was included with your shipment.

      Vitamin C would be especially bad to include with the sulfur, as the two would interact, greatly lessening the efficacy of both.

      Hope that clarifies things for you. Please let me know if I can be of further help.

      To your great health!

    Hello Jeff,

    I admire you for responding to every comment and really showing your patients that you are passionate and care about their health. I’ve been researching Sulfur/Msm for awhile and I am intrigued by this natural substance. Your site was also very informative. I am interested in taking Sulfur to help with my stomach issues, gas, constipation, always tired, foggy brain and the removal of toxins. I am also on my path to enlightenment and I heard it can help with spiritual growth and remove any old ancestral diseases. I am currently not on any medication, but I do take ORMES everyday morning, which is derived from a natural source such as water and veggies. I am 26 and healthy. I eat relatively well. I feel I’ve had underlining issues with my stomach for years and sulfur seems like a great detox to replenish my whole body. I work in a professional environment. Will taking your Sulfur give me any symptoms that might effect my work? Also, anything I should know or be prepared for while starting Sulfur?

    Respectfully,
    Krista

      Hi Krista,

      Please forgive me for taking so very long to reply. I have had a technical issue with my web site that prevented me from seeing some of the comments for a period of time. I have fixed it and recovered those comments. Again, my apologies.

      Based on your description the organic sulfur should help, as long as you are drinking enough good quality drinking water. But there likely are other things that are super important for you, as well. For example, the lining of your GI tract sounds like it has some inflammation. That should be determined and addressed. And it is very likely that you need to address the intestinal bacteria population and make changes there. And there may be some dietary changes needed.

      Also, in all the years I have done this work, I have never seen anyone with significant digestive issues who did not some emotional work to do, as well.

      That sounds like a lot to do, right? The good news is that I have very good tools for each of those areas. Feel free to contact me by e-mail if you want more information about what might be needed and what that would look like.

      To your great health!

    Hi Monica,

    I can’t honestly tell if you are trying to help or if you are trying to promote a commercial product. I hope the former.

    I still have a problem with your comment: You posted it under a blog post that is about the reasons for including organic sulfur in our daily nutrition. It is NOT a blog post about losing unwanted belly fat. Given that this site, which I put a lot of my time into, (it does not make me any profit and is not intended to), and in which I invest a great deal of my heart and soul, I do not think it is appropriate for visitors to use it to promote their commercial enterprises on this site. You may have noticed that there is not a single advertising banner on this site. That is unusual. I have had lucrative offers to put ads and banners on this site. I will never do that. The mission of this site is to help as many people as possible and not to give in to the forces of the market.

    I have been taking organic sulfur for a few weeks now at the recommendation of a trusted friend. I have noticed that recently I have been having frequent nosebleeds which I have not had before and wondered if there could be an correlation between the product and the nosebleeds.

      Posted November 5, 2015 at 3:48 pm | Permalink

      Hi Jean,

      That is a new one on me. I have never heard of that nor seen it. I must ask, whose organic sulfur are you using and how are you using it? And are we talking really bad nosebleeds that are hard to stop? How frequent? You probably ought to get blood work done to check your clotting factors and overall blood chemistry.

    I take MSM from KALA HEALTH. It is 99.9% pure Methylsulfonylmethane. One other ingredient is silicon dioxide. MSM dissolves fast. Do you think it is good quality? I paid around $14 for a pound.

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted May 4, 2016 at 9:32 am | Permalink

      Hi Steven,

      It may be somewhat effective, and I agree that the price is attractive. However, the addition of silicon dioxide indicates that the Kala Health MSM is not optimal. The best MSM has no additives, whatsoever. So it is likely providing some benefits, but not nearly what is possible from pure MSM.

      To your great health!

    Hi. I recently bought organic sulfur directly from the cellular matrix study. I am from pakistan and here we dont use tap water since its unsafe to consume it. I have been dissolving it in bottled water which have said to have been gone through reverese osmosis. I am noticing that the flakes dissolve quickly, definitely in less than a minute of stirring. Secondly ive kept my water in a glass to let it evaporate at room temperature. Its been more than 2 days now and the water is still the same (havent touched it either). The water is less than quarter of a cup. Kindly guide me.

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted August 14, 2016 at 11:43 am | Permalink

      Hi Fatima,

      Thanks for asking your question. Unfortunately, I am not clear on what you are asking. In general, if you are mixing your organic sulfur with clean water, filtered with reverse osmosis for example, that should be ready to use right away. I would simply stir it in and then drink it as soon as it is dissolved. I use measured tablespoon, (I use a cook’s measuring spoon for this), of the MSM in a full glass of water. My water glasses hold about 10 ounces. I do this 3 times a day, away from meals or other supplements.

      Depending on your body weight, you may need less. I weigh about 190 pounds. If you weigh 120 pounds, for example, then each of your servings throughout the day could be 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons. If you get a little too much, your body will discard the excess. But it makes sense to try and get the amounts as close as you can to what your body really needs so you don’t waste it.

      I hope that helps. If not, please ask again with enough detail so that I can better answer your question.

      To your great health!

    Is the Prairie Natural Pure MSM powder any good?

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted December 6, 2016 at 11:17 am | Permalink

      Hi Manny,

      I am not sure if the Prairie Naturals MSM is good or not. What they call “powder” may be fine. However, if it is actually refined to powder level it will not work as well as MSM in flake or crystal form. I am not certain why this is so, but it has been shown to be true. So if it has actually been refined to powder form, then I doubt it will be much good. However, if it is still in crystal or flake form, then it may be great.

      Of course, the Prairie Naturals MSM capsules are not likely to be effective. In order to encapsulate the MSM anti-caking agents must be added. These greatly detract from the efficacy. Some anti-caking agents are actually toxic!

      I hope the above details help.

      To your great health!

    It can absolutely help. Generally, due to the advent of industrial aggriculture, almost all of us are sulfur deficient. This impedes the travel of oxygen across cell membranes, in addition to causing many other serious health problems. The disruption of the oxygen transfer tends to increasee the level of any pain that may be present in the body, and it can cause its own pain. So supplementing with a very high quality, bio-available organic sulfur can really help.

    Further, depending on the type of the pain and the cause of it, topical applications of organic sulfur, in the form of very high quality, bio-available MSM, made into a sort of slurry with DMSO as the liquid, can be very effective. I use this for joint pain relief. It actually can help to repair the damage to the joint that is causing the pain. It’s a pretty amazing remedy. But it has to be done right. If you are interested, you can e-mail me a request for my article on “How I Fix Up Sore Joints”.

    You can e-mail to: jeff@myhealthoptimizer.com to request a complimentary copy of my report on this. I also have a lot of other material on Pain Management, correcting the root cause of most pain, and more.

    If you do decide to use organic sulfur for pain management, or for its many other health benefits, it is important to use an organic sulfur that is as pure as possible, that has been properly distilled, and that has NO ADDITIVES at all. I have tested over 50 different organic sulfur products. So far, I have found 2 that work. The one I offer on my site, under the Resources TAB is the best that I know of. It is the one that I use and that my whole family uses.

    To your health!
