Where Did The Gray Go?

Thrive-JeffBell_Close_Cropped_Headshot_10-29-2013A few months ago I was standing in front of the mirror, brushing my teeth when I noticed that my hair was about 60% gray.  I’d been sneaking up on 60 so I was not surprised at the gray in my hair.  The gray did not bother me as I have never paid much attention to such things.  They have always seemed superficial to me.

About the same time I joined a self-funded, grass-roots health study, organized to observe the results of using Organic Sulfur as a supplement.  The “Cellualr Matrix Study” is based on the fact that our industrial agriculture system has very significantly depleted our soil.  As a result most of our agricultural products are deficient in the natural sulfur that they would otherwise have.   This sulfur is an essential f0r life.

The sulfur was an abundant and bio-available component of the soil before the advent of chemical fertilizers and other non-organic agricultural methods.  The produce grown on the “pre-industrial” soil was therefore abundant in bio-available sulfur.  So was the meat raised by grazing on the grasses that grew on this sulfur-rich pre-industrial soil.

Sulfur is a requirement for most of the critical chemical functions that our bodies perform.  Everything from new cell growth to cellular metabolic functions to detoxification by the liver requires adequate sulfur to be performed properly.  When the amount of sulfur available to the body is too low, all of these functions and more, suffer.  The impacts on health are often profound.

I joined the “Cellular Matrix Study” organic sulfur study primarily to find out what affects it would have on my own health.  And I am always interested in doing what I can to further the study of what many call “natural health”.  Natural Health is based on the use of natural nutritional supplements and the like.  It includes improving our nutritional habits and health behaviors.  This is in contrast to allopathic medicine, which primarily depends on drugs to manipulate the body towards the elimination of diseases or all too often merely the suppression of their symptoms.

At the time that I joined the study I was not focused on any specific health issues for myself.  Nonetheless, about a month after I started using the organic sulfur I noticed that I was sleeping more soundly, especially in wee hours of the morning.  I also noticed that my usual mid-afternoon energy dips that have been a “normal” part of my life were greatly diminished.  I still experienced a dip on most days, but it was a minor energy level dip, especially compared to what I had come to expect as just a “normal” part of my life.

I also noticed that my vision was improving.  I have worn glasses for mid-distance activities for since adolescence.  I have needed glasses for any computer work since I started using them in 1978.  These days I use my computer without my glasses about half the time.  My vision still seems to be gradually improving.  Of course, I cannot prove that the sulfur is responsible for this improvement, but I also cannot think of anything else to attribute it to.  Others in the study have reported similar improvements to their vision, sleep, and many other aspects of health.

I still am not particularly concerned about the color, (or lack of it) of my hair.  However, the reason many of us experience increased gray and even white in our hair as we age is that our bodies begin to suffer more and more from the lack of essential nutritional building blocks for health.  So the fading of hair color is a reliable indicator of increasing deficiencies, which also have a profound effect on our overall health.

My hair was mostly gray just a few months ago.  Now there are just a few hints of  gray to be seen.  I am certain that the organic sulfur is the reason.  I have made no other significant changes in my daily living.  It is quite rare for hair color to return once it is gone.  As an indicator of the health affects of the sulfur this is very exciting.  This is both important and exciting as the pigmentation of our hair is a good indicator of the metabolic resourcefulness of our bodies.  So the natural return of hair color from my younger days is a reliable indicator that my body’s metabolism is in better shape and that my body has more of what it needs and less of what is does not.

Also, for those who dye their hair this should be very encouraging news.  Not only is it a nuisance to have to re-dye one’s hair every few months as it grows out, but it can become expensive.  And in most cases anyone dyeing their hair is exposing themselves to very dangerous chemicals.  There is growing evidence that almost all commercially available hair coloring preparations contain chemicals that are surprisingly dangerous to long-term health.

So, if for no other reason than to say goodbye to hair dye, it may be worth your while to find out more about organic sulfur.  Of course, the potential is there for many more profound health benefits.  You may even want to join The Cellular Matrix Study.  (There is no charge to join the study.)

Almost all organic sulfur intended to be used as either a topical agent or a dietary supplement is in the form of MethylSulphonylMethane (MSM) – checmical formula (CH3)2SO2.  I’m sure most have heard of or even tried MSM.  And most who have tried it have been disappointed in the results.  The reason is simply that almost all the MSM on the market does not work.  It turns out that making MSM that the body can actually absorb and use is a bit tricky.  Over the years I have tried nearly 50 different MSM supplements and products.  So far, I have found only a very few that  work well as topical agents, (used in conjunction with DMSO), and just 2 that work as dietary supplements.

Here is a link to more information as well as purchasing information for the pure Organic Sulfur that I have been able to find.  It works extremely well for both the traditional topical uses as well as use as a way to make up for the missing organic sulfur in our diets.   If you are ready to give it a try you can either learn more or get your initial supply of pure, properly-made Organic Sulfur with this link.

Note: The Organic Sulfur that we offer is from “The Cellular Matrix Study”. With more than 100,000 study members, world-wide, “The Cellular Matrix Study” is the world’s largest human health study of the effects of Organic Sulfur and sulfur deficiencies.

Although the Organic Sulfur in pure crystal form that we offer is technically Methyl Sulphonyl Methane, we do not refer to it by the over-used name: “MSM”. This is because almost all forms of MSM on the market are either of very limited efficacy or not effective at all. A few are not even safe.

Reasons for this are explained in detail in the Organic Sulfur posts on this site.

Here is a simple test that you can use to disqualify most of the MSM on the market: If you dissolve some of the MSM product in plain drinking water and then let the water evaporate, and crystals are not formed as the water evaporates you can rest assured that the MSM will not be effective. Unfortunately, even if crystals do form that does not guarantee that the MSM will be effective. But this test will disqualify most of the MSM on the market.

The  Organic Sulfur we offer on this site is private labeled in order to help get you the best possible price and to assist you in confirming that it is from the highest quality source possible, (The Cellular Matrix Study.)

    Ohh!! But this is a very nice post!

      Thank you! As I said, I am not so very concerned about the color of my hair. I know many people are, but I do not seem to be. However, as an indicator of the overall health of my body I think hair color can be a useful gauge. When my body has the biological resources it needs, then my hair color is maintained. When it does not, then my hair goes gray. I have seen this in others, as well.

      So it is nice to have this as a form of confirmation that supplementing with the Organic Sulfur is really helping my body to maintain its health. Of course, I notice other affects, as well. Just a few are: My joints, especially my knees, seem more resilient. That is, they seem less vulnerable to pain and inflammation froom really hard use. My digestion seems more stable. My eye sight has improved.

      And this last is really subjective, but I think there is something to it: I think my mental clarity and ability to focus in my thinking for loinger periods of time and to a greater degree has increased since I have been using the organic sulfur.

      And there are tons of stories of children who have been emotioinally and otherwise harmed, presumably by over-use of vaccines, and who have recovered pretty quickly after they started taking the organic sulfur. So that is pretty dramatic and impressive.

    Hello. I am not sure who you are. But I think you ought to be ashamed of yourself. First off, I deplore spam. The Internet is such a precious resource, especially for those of us who are dedicated to sharing valuable information that is not readily available elsewhere. Those whose greed and lack of ethics clutter this precious resource up with garbage are truly deplorable. If you took even a few minutes to look over my web site you would see that its primary purpose is NOT commercial. Rather, it is my best effort to share the crucial and often rare health information I have been blessed to find in my lifetime, and that I keep searching for and finding on a daily basis. This is my life’s mission and my life’s work. I am trying with all my might to make a real positive difference in this world. And your shameless spamming does not help.

    Secondly, your message is so poorly written, (bordering on the illiterate), that I would never consider using your services for any kind of marketing activity if I were interested in any marketing help. (I am not.) My advice to you? Wake up and find a way to behave in a more ethical and honest manner. I promise that if you do so you will be healthier, happier and likely more successful, as well. Best of luck to you!

    To your great health!

    I know sulfur makes hair color return and also grow quicker, is there any info about hair regrowth and sulfur?

      Hi Ann,

      Sorry for the late reply. Somehow I missed this post. I am not sure what information exists and is available about actually restoring lost hair by supplementing with sulfur. I have not looked into that. It likely would help, but it is not where I would focus if restoring lost hair is my priority. That is an area where I am not an expert. However, properly balancing hormones would at least help to prevent further hair loss. If you search on this site for Hormone Balance and Saliva Testing you will find lots of information on this subject, which is very important for overall health, as well.

      To your great health!

    Hi. I have used for several years a hair tonic with sulphur in it for dandruff & hair colour loss. If I stop using it my hair quickly gets dandruff & colour loss but is restored when remembering to use the lotion. This happened quite often so the sulphur genuinely works. Presently there are blogs to be found with a Search for Sulphur Hair Growth.

      Hi Ron,

      I do know about the color loss and the way that good quality organic sulfur can restore it. I was not aware that the actual hair growth was significantly effected as well. That is interesting.

      Of course, the restoration of natural hair color can be seen as “cosmetic effect”, and may not seem that important. But it is a reliable indicator of the some important aspects of overall health and how “resourceful” the body is. The organic sulfur does a lot, including improving the ability of the liver to detox on an ongoing basis, improve intestinal health and much more.

      To your great health,

    You daid you never call it MSM but when you attemp to purchase it it says Organic sulphur MSM at least twice!

    • Jeff Bell
      Posted May 28, 2015 at 8:37 pm | Permalink

      Hi Tee, I am afraid I do not understand your comment. In most of the posts about the form of Organic Sulfur that I recommend and carry as a convenience to my clients, I mention a number of times that I use the phrase “Organic Sulfur” to help differentiate it from most of the MSM on the market, which has anti-caking agents, dispersants and other additives mixed in. These do not work well, and in some cases not at all. Further, most of those products are from non-Organic sources and have other problems, as well. I think I am very clear about the labels and how I describe the Organic Sulfur that I carry. In case I have not adequately addressed what I think your question might be please let me know.

      To y9our great health!

    I am not sure why it is hard to understand I don’t know how to say it any other way>.

    I was ordering the product and the product is described as Organic Sulfur MSM twice. I thought you said you didn’t use MSM to describe this product?

      Hi Tee,

      Initially, I had trouble understanding your comment because there was a critical typo in it that I did not decipher. Now I now what you mean. From a technical, chemical nomenclature point of view, all of the sulfur available for use as a supplement is MSM, otherwise known is MethylSulphonylMethane. And there is no way around that. When I first set up the links for people to purchase this, I used MSM-02, MSM-05, and MSM-09 as the product numbers. But I also wanted to clearly differentiate what I was offering from the usual “MSM” that was and is available, which has additives, including anti-caking agents, and which has mostly not be properly distilled and in many cases not even from good, safe sources.

      To do this, I settled on using “Organic Sulfur” to describe what I was offering. Perhaps there was a better way to have handled this and clarified the distinction that I was trying to make and that I still believe is so important. So now I am stuck with product descriptions and there is no easy way to change any of this at this time.

      The important thing is that the Organic Sulfur that I carry and offer is very pure and is highly effective. To me, that is what counts.

    Hello Jeff
    Thank you for the post. Do you have pictures to show the hair color change.


    • Jeff Bell
      Posted June 24, 2015 at 8:10 am | Permalink

      Hi Marc,

      Unfortunately, I do not have any “before pictures”. That is because I had no idea that my hair color would come back, it was not a goal in taking the sulfur, so I did not think to take any before pictures. However, there are plenty of more current pictures scattered all over this web site.

      And just to clarify, I do not really care about my hair color, at least not directly. However, it is a useful indicator of how overall resourceful my body is in terms of nutrients, beneficial minerals, etc. When the resource state is low, the body diverts the resources it otherwise would use to maintain hair color to other, more critical areas. Since many people who take the good quality bioavailable form of sulfur that I carry and recommend have reported that their hair color is either partially, mostly or completely restored after they have been taking the sulfur for awhile, it seems reasonable to hypothesize that the sulfur brings the body back to a more normally high resource state. And that makes sense based on my understanding of the biochemistry involved.

      To your great health!

    I’ve been taking a danish msm supplement for two (2!!) days only, 1,5 mg tvivl a day. My backpain early in the morning are completely gone, my energy levels have increased dramaticly and I feel like I could run a marathon (but is very overweight).
    Yesterday I read ‘The MSM miracle’ online, and I strongly recomend others to do the same. Now I’ll just wait for my greys to slowly dissappear… hoping so much!!!

    Hi Jeff very good post.. my age is 40 and maximum of my hair is grey . Please can you suggest me which organic sulphur should I use and how to use. Please may I also know how much time it took for you to see the grey hair reversal to natural colour

    • Jeff Bell

      Hi Gazala,

      I cannot give you a definitive answer. We are all different. I am 66 years old now. It was a number of years ago that I discovered, kind of by accident, that using organic sulfur restored my original hair color. At this point, I don’t even remember exactly how long ago. But I do recall that it took about 3 months for most of my hair color to come back. I have heard that it can take longer for some people and less time for others. Also, there are a few people for whom it does not work at all. But the organic sulfur does have other benefits that I consider to be far more important than restoring hair color. These include some level of cancer prevention, a reduction of systemic inflammation and more.

      I like the form of organic sulfur that I feature on this site. It is one of the few supplements I carry. I provide it because it is so hard for my clients to find really good quality, pure organic sulfur. I break even on it and carry it as a favor to all who need it. If you order the organic sulfur from this site it will come with guidelines on how to use it.

      To your great health!

    Hi Jeff, nowhere do I see mentioned how much organic sulfur MSM you were/are taking per day in teaspoons or tablespoons. Can’t believe no one has asked this. Can you please elaborate? Thanks.

      Hi Marni,

      Please forgive the long delay in replying and answering your question. We had a problem with a web site upgrade that prevented me from seeing your question. I apologize for that. Here is the answer:

      How much sulfur to use really depends on body weight, primarily. The diet in general, and the health of the detox pathways also are factors, but less so. As a very general rule of thumb, an adult of about 150 po8unds might want to start with 2 teaspoons, three times a day. That would be level teaspoons, using a cook’s measuring teaspoon. I am very heavily muscled and weigh closer to 190 pounds. I took 3 cook’s measure level tablespoons per day, spread throughout the day.

      I hope that is helpful.

      To your great health!

      Thank you for your kind words about my content. I do put a lot of time and effort into it, and it is based on my decades of research and practice in the field of natural and alternative health.

      Thanks for y9our kind offer to help me monetize my site. I am going to say, “No thank you!” I already do know how to monetize my site, but that is not my mission. My mission is to help as many people as possible by being a reliable source of health information and to freely spread the information and help to unravel the lies and myths that Big Pharma has promoted, causing terrible suffering and otherwise avoidable deaths and the surrounding tragedies. Most of the many teachers and mentors I have been blessed to learn from for most of my life have freely shared their information with me. I wish to do that same with my life.
