Sulfur Detoxifying

Sulfur is a commonly used element in body detoxification. You can ingest sulfur through sulfur-rich foods or take it as a supplement. Bathing in a sulfur bath is also an option. Either Epsom salts or a mineral rich hot spring will work to detoxify your body. Sulfur works in your body, in part, by increasing the bile production of your liver, which aids in fat digestion and absorption.

The Importance of Sulfur

    Sulfur plays an important role in your body. It is essential in the synthesis of collagen and is an integral part of hair, skin, nails and cartilage. Sulfur has properties that may help in dermatitis and other skin conditions. It is also part of the molecule that forms the amino acids methionine, cysteine and taurine. It is the third most common mineral in the body, after calcium and phosphorus. Since insulin contains sulfur, it is also needed to regulate blood sugar. Increasing your intake of sulfur increases bile production, helping your liver to function better.

Where To Find Sulfur

    Sulfur is an element, which means that your body cannot produce it and instead must get it from food or supplements. It is commonly found in red meat, poultry, eggs, onions, brussel sprouts, asparagus, kale and wheat germ. Garlic is especially high in sulfur. If you choose to add garlic to your diet for medicinal reasons, roast it, or mash it in oil (as for salad dressing). Studies show that more medicinal properties are released when used this way, and there is very little chance for stomach upset compared to eating raw cloves. Several nutritional supplements are also good sources of sulfur, including glucosamine (1,500 mg daily); chondroitin (1,200 mg daily);
    methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM (1,000-2,000 mg daily).

    You can also try Epsom (magnesium sulfate) baths, or traveling to a mineral spa. Bathing in the mineral has a centuries long tradition for detoxification.

How To Detox With Sulfur

    Choosing the foods and supplements listed above, plan for a week where you will easily be able to eat mostly vegetables and sulfur-rich foods. Your body is continuously detoxing, eliminating toxins from the body. By going on a detox diet, you will simply be helping your liver and your entire body do what it wants to do. Eliminate sugar for this week, concentrate on the sulfur-rich foods, and avoid or reduce foods with a high glycemic index. Drink at least eight glasses of filtered water per day during this time, and eliminate or reduce your intake of caffeine and alcohol.

    Taking daily epsom salts baths will aid the detoxification process.
