Hi, I just got my 23andme results back and need some help understanding what the heck I can do... 1. I have a CBS mutation, which is confusing. On one hand, I have always had joint pain & stiffness, so I'm not surprised that I have a sulfur... (more)
I bet I'm not the first paleo peep to go hog wild on protein when starting paleo. I developed terrible tension headaches, stiff neck, muscle cramping, lately bad joint pain / muscle pain, and sneezing fits. Of course, there could be lots of... (more)
I'm very confused on: Sulfites vs. Sulfates vs. Sulfur vs. thiols. When I googled low sulfur diet, I came up with this list of foods: http://www.livingnetwork.co.za/chelationnetwork/food/high-sulfur-sulphur-food-list/ However, they are... (more)
I can testify that my rare headaches (perhaps ten in my whole life) were always related to sulfites. Since 2008 I brew my own wine and drink only that. No headache since.
I'v spent an enormous amount of time and read all kinds of theoretical info about methylation causing excess sulfur and ammonia. Does anyone here have that issue or is this all ivory tower theoretical stuff? Ever since going paleo and... (more)
Some dried fruit is Sulfited. Is this safe? Or should I stay away from it? I know some sulfur is naturally occurring, like in asparagus, and we obviously just pass the sulfur, hence the sulfur smelling urine. Is sulfited kiwi ok?

I had a sweet attack and decided to be bad and ate a few sliced of dried mango. I had just landed in a new city and immediately hunted for a grocery store. I guess my craving got the better of me because I didn't check to see if the fruit was... (more)
If you have a problem with sulfur you may be able to take some molybdenum to help with this. There is a genetic polymorphism in the methylation cycle called CBS which may be at fault. Not pleasant! I don't know my CBS status (yet) but I react to... (more)
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has experienced gastrointestinal distress from eating dried fruit treated with sulfur dioxide. I eat some dried fruit everyday without problem but I've recently experienced an episode of really bad painful gas that... (more)
So a while back I bought some ground organic beef from Costco "Organic Ranchers" and had it in the freezer until last night. After letting it thaw for a day in the fridge, I opened it up and it smelled of sulfur. I soaked it in water for a few... (more)
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... (more)
How bad is this? I love creamed coconut and dried coconut flakes, but sometimes the only ones I can find have sulphur dioxide as an additive (no other additives though). I'm guessing this is not ideal, but does anyone know about... (more)
So--I have had problems for years-horrible vomiting and nausea from garlic is how it started, but now I can't eat onions, (and everything in garlic and onion family), eggs, dairy, broccoli, and beets. I am very careful to eat organic fruits and... (more)
