MSM Sulfur vs. Sulfur

Many people confuse MSM sulfur with regular sulfur but the two are very different. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4481/msmbowlthumb.jpg
Sulfur and Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane sulfur are commonly misunderstood substances. Many people confuse MSM sulfur with regular sulfur but the two are very different.

While they are both sulfur, the forms are different. MSM sulfur can be regarded as organic sulfur and thus 100% safe. This kind of sulfur can be safely and efficiently digested and absorbed by the human body.

Regular sulfur is also known as sulfur oxide and is processed into sulfuric acid. This form of sulfur is inorganic and is toxic to the human body. This kind of sulfur cannot be digested or absorbed by the human body.


History

This is the kind of sulfuric acid that doctors used to prescribe to people back in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. It caused many adverse reactions, especially to people's skin. When applied externally to the skin, the skin tries to excrete the poisonous sulfur from the blood. As the body's largest organ of elimination, the skin eliminates sulfuric acid because it is dangerous inside the body and is potentially fatal.

Sulfuric acid was used in topical ointments and creams to treat arthritic conditions and because the toxic substance was applied to the skin, it traveled into the bloodstream and then the blood used the skin to attempt to eliminate the toxic substance.

Many people refer to sulfuric acid as sulfur, so when they hear about MSM sulfur, they equate MSM sulfur with sulfuric acid, resulting in a risky situation.


Sulfur vs. Sulfuric Acid

It's very easy to tell MSM sulfur from sulfur oxide. MSM Sulfur has a white color and sulfur oxide has a yellow color. This yellow color becomes clear when it is processed and made into sulfuric acid, an industrial product.

Sulfur. A nonmetallic, multivalent, tasteless and odorless chemical element mainly occurs in yellow crystalline form or in mass volume, especially in volcanic areas. Its atomic number is 16 and its atomic weight is 32.06. It is used to produce sulfuric acid and is used for the following industrial purposes:
  • Metallurgy
  • Rubber vulcanization
  • Petroleum refining
Sulfur has the ability to treat the following conditions:
  • Gout
  • Rheumatism
  • Bronchitis
Organic sulfur, along with elements such as zinc, silicon and biotin, are beauty elements that are beneficial to the skin. They help foster the structural integrity of the skin.


Dietary Sources

Sulfur

Sulfur is the key substance that makes garlic the "king of herbs." However, there is a controversy with organic sulfur though specious in nature. The sulfur in onions is not responsible for making people cry when cutting onions. Onions produce a chemical irritant called Syn-propanethial-S-oxide, which stimulates the eye's lachrymal glands so that they release tears.

Syn-propanethial-S-oxide starts out as a substance called Lachrymatory-factor-synthase, a previously undiscovered enzyme discovered by the Japanese in 2002. When an onion is cut, lachrymatory-factor-synthase is released into the air. The Synthase enzyme converts the amino acids into Sulfenic acid. The unstable Sulfenic acid rearranges itself into Syn-ropanethial-S-oxide and this substance releases into the air and comes into contact with our eyes.

So it is not the sulfur that makes the eyes water when cutting onions. It is another substance.

MSM sulfur is considered dietary sulfur. It is chiefly derived from the lignin of pine trees. Lignin is a molecule in plants that is part of a plant's cell wall. MSM sulfur or Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane is a relatively new dietary form of sulfur that is found in human tissue. It is a naturally occurring nutrient found in the human diet, especially plant-based diets. It gets into the diet via the sulfur cycle which occurs when ocean plankton release sulfur compounds that rise into the ozone where ultra-violet light makes MSM and Di-Methyl Sulfoxide return to the surface of the Earth through rain. The plants concentrate MSM and eventually return it to the Earth and the sea. Evaporation into the air results in its return to the Earth.


Benefits

MSM sulfur supports healthy connective tissues like tendons, muscle and ligaments and thus is helpful for health challenges such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout and muscle pain. MSM sulfur is actually considered the building blocks of protein. The substance also removes toxins from the blood and lymphatic system.

Sulfur, in its organic nature, is present in all cells in sulfate form. When sulfur comes into contact with sodium, potassium, magnesium and selenium, the sulfate forms.


Varieties

Sulfur is found in human hair, skin and nails.

Many amino acids have sulfur as a component. MSM has many functions that are very important for human health and overall wellbeing.


Uses

Sulfur is also needed for insulin production and is greatly recommended for so-called diabetics.

Those with arthritic conditions and athletic injuries respond well to MSM when it is ingested orally. MSM is imperative for healing because it accelerates the healing process. Many professional athletes consume MSM sulfur when they are injured and need to recover quickly.

MSM sulfur can be used to promote:
  • Hair growth
  • Nail growth
  • Structural integrity of the skin;
  • Insulin production
  • Healing of damaged tendons, ligaments and muscles, broken bones and pain
  • Healing of arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, osteoarthritis, sprains and blindness
  • Fertility enhancement, especially for males
  • Blood purification
  • Detoxification of the cells
  • Removal of parasites and worms
  • Nourishment of the male and female gonads
Sources of Sulfur

Sulfur is a very important element for optimal health and wellbeing and is a highly recommended by Dherbs.com. Make sure Vitamin C is consumed with MSM sulfur because Vitamin C is dependent upon sulfur for absorption.

Sulfur-rich foods include:
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Kale
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Lentils
  • Soybeans
  • Turnips
  • Beans
  • Wheat germ
Sulfur-rich plants include:
  • Horsetail
  • Alfalfa
  • Chaparral leaves
  • Burdock root
  • Dandelion leaves and root
  • Catnip
  • Garlic
  • Red Raspberry leaves and berries
  • Lobelia
  • Juniper berries
This substance can also be found in the following facial skin clays:
  • Bentonite Clay
  • French Green Clay
  • Moroccan Red Clay
And because sulfur is widely available, it can be used in chakra balancing. Sulfur is a beautiful yellow color which means its a beneficial stone to use for the 3rd chakra, solar plexus.

The 3rd chakra of the human energy system deals with issues of personal power, intelligence, ambition, drive, self-esteem and self-image and ego.

Sulfur should never be used to make an elixir, unless of course the sulfur piece is placed in a glass container or jar and placed in a bowl carrying the water (elixir), called the 'indirect method.' The properties of the sulfur will still impact the water this way and is best used externally.

Sulfur can be directly applied to the body for purposes of chakra balancing. It will not adversely affect the skin in this way. During chakra balancing sessions, clothes are usually worn so the sulfur piece sits on the clothing material and not directly on the human skin.

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!

    A:

    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.

    Q: I want to start the raw food diet, but do not want to lose weight has i am under weight already. I need tips to gain or at least maintain my weight. I do lift weights as part of my exercise routine.

    A:

    Thanks for the question,

    Losing "weight" on a raw foods diet is a definite probability. But the weight might be excess fat and water retention due to detoxing. By weight I am assuming you are talking about muscle. It is not that complicated to keep muscle while on a raw food diet. The Vegan Effect diet program I created is 60-90 percent raw. Raw before dinner if that helps. I allow myself one cooked meal a day. For the most part the diet is a Low fat/high carb/high fruit/high alkaline diet. 

    The most important thing to remember is getting enough calories. My athletes (including raw body builders) typically eat 1000 calories of fruit for breakfast in the form of a green smoothie. Usually post workout. You need to eat roughly 3000 calories to maintain or grow muscle mass. Some of my mass building athletes eat as much as 5000 calories. Albeit at a higher fat ratio than our standard 70/10/20 carb/fat/protein ratios. 

    Please refer to my blog on building muscle ona vegan diet found here: http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach1.integrativenutrition.com/blog/2012/05/building-muscle-on-vegan-diet

    There is a raw organic food bar with 22 grams of protien that can be found here http://www.organicfoodbar.com/products/. *Note: I am not affiliated with them nor do I sell any supplements*. It is however a great bridge to meals. 

    Besides getting enough calories make sure you are getting around 20 grams of protein 5 times a day to maintain muscle mass. Sprouting beans, nut butters, seeds, and nuts help.

    I run a 6 month online health coahcing program that includes lessons on sports nutrition and include a individualized fitness plan. I am currently running a ridiculous half off special to fill spots. If you are interested visit www.theveganeffect.com and contact me there.

     

    Hope this helps

    Q: What foods are ideal for vegans that weight train?

    A:

    Thanks for the question Rick. Here are three ideal foods for those who weight train.

    Oatmeal: 1/4 cup of oats yields 7-8 grams of protein. Imagine eating a whole cups worth. That's 28 grams!!! Now what if you soaked them in soy milk. Add another 8 grams. I usually do my oatmeal with soy milk, a tbsp. of ground seeds, tbsp. cinnamon, tsp. nutmeg, tbsp. maple syrup. The long burning starchy carbohydrates are perfect muscle building fuel! Also you get the anti-inflammatory spices that help recovery time and oxygenate the blood!

    Spirulina: Spirulina is a superfood that boasts a large amount of amino acids that are hard to get in the plant world. Find a green powder with spirulina and watch the muscles grow! A greens powder is also alkaline and aids in recovery.

    Tempeh: Tempeh is a fermented soy/rice product that is super nutrient/protein dense. 1 serving has 20 grams of protein in it! I would flash fry strips in coconut oil, season, and use as croutons in salad.

    I hope those three options help you and feel free to ask any more questions you have. I am currently coaching raw vegan bodybuilders and other fitness athletes on my health coaching program. If that is something you are interested in and would like a free consultation with me just fill out the health history form found here. http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/forms. we will then set up a time when we can skype!

    Also please check out my other blog on building muscle on a vegan diet which includes a basic meal plan and workout. You can read that here: http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/blog/2012/05/building-muscle-on-vegan-diet

    Q: I would like to know, if you have any skin care programs, for women age 50 and over. I am going to try the detox program as soon as possible. I truly believe that I am going to be very happy with the results. I am 51 years old, and I want to look and feel my best. I have a lot of belly fat, and that makes me feel uncomfortable, because some people will ask me, if I am pregnant. This seems very strange to me, because my stomach seems to be the main place, where all the fat is building up. I desire to have beauty inside and out. I want to be completely whole. If you have tips for skin care and body care, please let me know. Some people say that I look like I am in my forties, however, if I did not have all of this extra body fat, I could really believe what they are saying.

    A:

    Apparently, you are dealing with a colon problem (perhaps constipation) buttressed by underlying energetic (emotional/metaphysical) issues. The belly is located in the Second Chakra which deals with issues of sexuality, pleasure, relationships with the opposite sex, femininity, womanhood, motherhood, Godessness, and money. The physical problem is always predicated upon a hidden or invisible problem that must be addressed before the physical healing can take place. A Dherbs health consultation can help you get to the root cause of your health issues. Consider a consultation!

    In re skin care, I suggest Oz-Oil used all over your body because the oxygen in it will revitalize the cells of the body. Beauty begins on a cellular level, physically speaking.

    The Female Menstrual Belly rub is also helpful for the belly and skin of the belly.

    Also, read our article The Healing Power of Steam because there are certain baths you can take daily that will greatly help your skin.

    Also, start getting colonics performed to. You are carrying excess poop in addition to fat in your belly area. Basically, you are literally pregnant with feces and fat.

    After detoxing, make sure you perform our Bowel Mover and Colon Conditioner formulas for maintenance purposes and be on the lookout for our new 3-week WEIGHT RELEASE kit and regimen which should be available in May 2007.

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: Are there any herbs or remedies for Skin moles? My family has them on there face, neck, arm, and legs. Can you pull them off? Some people say if you do that, you will bleed for hours. Is this true?

    A:

    YOU CAN HEAL FROM MOLES! CONSIDER THE Following: the following is a healing account of a mole by my good and dear friend Paris Chatman. This is my story and how I healed my face of my mole. I developed a small growth in 1997 on the left side of my face. Over the years it slowly increased in size and until recently it reached 0.25 inches. I had been on and off a healthy diet for over ten years. I could not ever commit to 100% good health, which I felt deep down, was the root cause of why my pathologies either remained or kept returning. Once this mole reached 0.25 inches I knew that it was time to really make a committed choice regarding my eating habits. I was convinced that it was my eating habits and thinking life style that contributed to the growth of this mole. It was only getting bigger which really concerned me. I took one final measurement and made the intent to eat an organic vegan diet, which would be mostly raw (not exclusively). I then purchased several bottles of BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA and the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA. I knew that my skin pathologies were a result of toxic blood and the toxic blood was a result of a toxic diet. So just having made the intent alone caused a change in my body chemistry. I do not have the medical explanations for what happened. All I can say is the day after I measured my mole and made the committed intent to live a healthy mental & physical lifestyle, the mole began to crack at one of the edges. This was just the next day. Then I realized that my body & mind are incredibly powerful...more than I ever realized. I thought that if I took the herbs that I purchased then I would help my body on the inside cleanses the blood and the end result would be a beautiful healed complexion. I took 5 capsules of the BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA and 3 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA daily. Then I broke open 5 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA and put the herbs in a small dish and mixed it with distilled water (about three tablespoons). I then put this mixture in the base of my facial steamer. I bought this facial steamer from savon's for only $20.00 many years ago and this was the best use I got out of it ever! I put a towel over my head and allowed the steamer to infuse the herb mixture into my skin/mole directly. Once I was done, I lightly patted my face dry and applied a paste I concocted with OZ OIL and the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA. To make the paste, I broke open another 5 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA and put the powder in a small dish and added 1/2 teaspoon of the OZ OIL...just enough to create a paste. I applied the paste directly on the mole. I felt a sensation in the mole area, which went away after a few minutes. The next morning I washed my face using a chemical free, fragrance free, soap and once I patted my face dry, I noticed the mole had begun to crack more around the edges and the edges that cracked the day before had turned black and hardened. I gently touched the hard black area and it came off as if it were a scab that healed and underneath was healed skin. I kept doing my routine and I am not kidding in three weeks the mole had broken off bit by bit and was gone and my skin was healed completely. I look in the mirror each day and am amazed that a mole that frustrated me for nearly ten years was gone in just three weeks once I made the intention and commitment. This process was repeated as follows: Herbs (BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA & HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA) were taken daily each morning with distilled water Facial steaming with the herbs: twice a week (I chose a Sat and Sun because I worked during the week and had little time) The herb paste was put on the mole every night. Each morning or whenever the mole looked ready, I touched any hardened black areas so they could fall off. I ate a 98% raw vegan diet, drank distilled water. I have a very light brown circle on the area were the mole used to be. This is fading each time my skin does its normally shedding process. This is what happened to me. I have been and still is 100% committed to a healthy vegan (mostly raw) diet and healthy thinking lifestyle. I listen to my body now. I can only speak for me. I am sincerely blessed and am happy for the opportunity to share my story.

    Q: I am 66 yrs old and have multiple health problems-HBP, Diabetes and depression. I weigh 240 lbs. and want to get down to at least 190 or lower. My skin at this time on my arms and stomach looks awful. When I lose the weight which I intend to do with your help. Is there anything you can do to help tighten your skin as you lose weight. Remember my age.

    A:

    Thanks for the question! That is a very good question at that. 

     To avoid loose skin from weight loss the best thing you can do is lose weight slowly and efficiently. Healthy weight loss is around 1lb to 2lbs per week. Your body always seeks balance and does not respond well to rapid weight gain or loss. Hence the stretching of your skin. It takes around two years for your stretched skin to return to "normal" so be patient. Losing weight fast is a goal most people have and you hear stories of people losing 10 lbs a week and believe that is the way to go. Considering your age it's best to take things slow. Besides not losing weight too rapidly, here are three other tips for keeping skin tight.

    1. Switch to a high raw food diet. Raw food diets are often referred to as "Facelift Diets". People who eat a majority of their food raw (60% plus) look younger than most because of the high antioxidant and phytochemical count in raw plant foods. I have seen hundreds of raw foodists lose weight and cellulite at the same time. Raw food helps the body stay hydrated, refreshed, and repairing rapidly. Fruits are my favorite skin food. Avocados, coconut, bananas, peaches, tropical fruit, grapefruit, berries, etc are all potent skin renewing and correcting foods.
    2. Hydration is the key to elastic skin. A simple test to see if you are hydrated is to pinch the skin on the top of your hand for two seconds and then releasing. If the skin snaps back you are hydrated. If it slowly pulls back to position you need to hydrate. The best way to hydrate is to drink two glasses of room temperature water as soon as you wake up. As maintenance drink 8 ounces of water every two hours. Remove or lessen the amount of dehydrating foodstuffs like coffee, tea that is not herbal, table salt, animal products, artificial sugars.
    3. Take care of your skin now by exfoliating daily, doing salt scrubs, using non toxic and natural beauty products. A rule of thumb is "if you wouldn't put it in your mouth don't put it on your skin". Your skin has a direct pathway to your blood stream so be careful what you put on it. I use coconut oil on my skin daily as a moisturizer and that is it. My skin has never been better.

    Lastly, with your health goals I recommend you have a free online consultation with me. I run a six month health coaching program over skype that teaches a system of health that empowers people to take control of their own health by teaching them all the tools to get their. Some of the lessons in the course are alkalinity, 60-90 percent raw, detoxing and cleansing, juice fasting, plant based beauty, intro to stress relief and meditation, etc. My clients get the results they desire and get healthy for life. To get a free consultation with me fill out the health history form found here: Health forms . I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Q: My son was diagnosed with Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Jan. 2007, 10-day hospital stay,. Jan 2008, 8-day stay. This is terrible, more like biological experiment results put in place a long time ago. I’ve been thinking, and feeling, he needed to be detoxified. I am not knowledgeable on these toxic, viral, bacteria, fungus, whatever this thing is. I just don't understand it. The doctors don’t either. Where does it come from? When did it come? My Son is 16 years, trying to finish school. I will continue praying and seeking answers. I know I want to help him to be, and stay safe from the diseases, syndromes, pharmaceutical medications, misinformation, streets, and bad association. Thank You

    A:

    "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: “A serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.†– Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in layman’s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, “a viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: “any of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: “…. skin, … mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?†Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

    Q: I've also read that when detoxing, yes you are ridding the body of the nasty toxins, but during that process you also loss vital vitamins and minerals that your body has in storage. Is this true?

    A:

    Not if the vitamins and minerals are organic (plant-based)!

    You only lose vitamins and minerals derived from oxide sources (i.e. carbonate, sulfate, etc.), not plant-based sources. Plant-based minerals are absorbed by the body, oxide ones are not which is why they are expelled during detoxing.

Why Plant-Based Milks Does a Body Good

Almond, cashew, hemp, rice, flax, soy and other non-dairy milks have been flying off the shelves since they first hit the market, and the trend only continues to skyrocket. Plant-based milks aren’t just cruelty-free, which is reason alone to purchase them, but they also come with additional benefits that make them an amazing plant-based staple to keep around the house. They’re also incredibly easy to use in everyday and unconventional recipes. Want a smoothie or some cream for your coffee? Just grab some almond or coconut milk and you’re good to go. Need a sweet beverage to replace sweetened condensed milk in a baking recipe? Rice milk is a great option that will lend a lovely, light sweetness to your recipes without all the negative effects of dairy.

Some plant-based milks do contain additives like carrageenan or excessive amounts of sugar, both of which you’ll want to avoid. Look for unsweetened, non-dairy milks that are free from carrageenan and that preferably have a short ingredient list.
