Ever heard of Sulfur Oxidation problems? My well-known Osteopath has not and doesn't appear inclined to do any research on her own. (Her treatments have not helped me so far, 4 months in).So now, Dr. Google has diagnosed me and I am thinking of buying in.
Although I believe my tummy troubles started with a over the top dose of the antibiotic Levequin (thanks mother in law!), my symptoms really hit the fan when I started paleo (I was mostly vegetarian SAD:mac and cheese/toast for 5 years before). I started eating tons of meat, tons of greens, and tons of broccoli, onions, garlic, etc. (Basically a ton of sulfur rich foods).Basically I have leaky gut, leading to food intolerances, leading to gas/bloating/constipation/rumbly stomach/inflammation/joint pain from hell). Yes, I have been tested for damn near everything and tried everything from probitiocs (good bye 1K$) to autohemotherapy to acupuncture and much more.
So why on earth do I think I am having a poor sulfur oxidation problem? (often confused with sulfite intolerance). I have an allergy to sulfa drugs, a hair test showed sky high levels of sulfur, and not eating the high sulfur foods (except meat..which apparently comes with all the necessary stuff to make the oxidation process go well) had been the very first improvement I have seen in 3 years. (0 inflammation, for the first time I can touch my ribs and stomach without pain, 50% less on other symptoms).
So why not just stick with it and let the results speak for themselves? Sulfur, unlike gluten, is necessary and healthy. By avoiding those foods I could risk further health complications. Any feedback would be great!! Thanks!!
