ANDY CUTLER RESEARCH
I chanced upon reading Andy Cutlers book on eliminating sulphur foods during oral chelation. He is saying that the bodies burden of sulphur is too much and can cause further problems if chelating.
**** that is for some, not for all. Some people are low sulfur and need to add more sulfur foods to their diet. It sounds like you are one of the ones who needs to eliminate them.
I have removed all meat,
**** You need a source of good quality protein. Meat is low sulfur and may work for you. You need a portion about the size of the palm of your hand per meal. Try making soups and stews so that the meat is partially digested and there are lots of nutrients in the broth.
all milk products, alcohol, caffeine, packaged foods, yeast, gluten, mushrooms, aflotoxins - peanuts, corn, melons, Blood Type Diet problem foods - banana, tomato, mango, papaya, melons and excess sugar.
***** the above sounds ok
My diet is practically vegan, with the exception of eggs, and some honey.
***** Eggs are high sulfur (remember the rotten egg smell is hydrogen sulfide)
With regards to intestinal pain, diverticular, leaky gut, IBS, mercury poisoning I have missed 2 essential causes of continued abdominal cramps:
***** You will likely find Elaine Gottschall's book "Breaking the Viscous Cycle" helpful. She gives a good explanation of what causes IBS and other similar problems.
High fibre foods
High Sulphur foods
***** You need large quantities of fibre to keep things moving especially during chelation. Try things like apples and celery.
I can't stress enough that these 2 reasons appear to be the major cause of my intestinal agony.
THE PROBLEM WITH HIGH SULPHUR FOODS
Unfortunatley there are more high sulphur foods than I first thought, and they are all very healthy foods - brocolli, garlic, onions etc. This creates a problem,
because sulphur is needed to help the body detoxify heavy metals like mercury.
***** What is needed is appropriate chelation with chelators that contain TWO sulfur groups (ALA, DMSA, DMPS). Foods that contain one sulfur group just drag the mercury around weakly making you feel sicker, and don't help to eliminate it.
However, its causing me extreme agony to eat these foods.
IF I CAN'T EAT SULPHUR - WHAT CAN I EAT?
After spending several hours last night researching all foods that are low sulphur I came up with hundreds of foods that were considered sulphurous or high sulphur, but not much on low sulphur foods, except that lemon and molybdenum help neutralise a sulphur overdose.
This is what I have reduced my diet to.
(Only organic vegetables and fruit)
***** I would add meats and low mercury fish to this.
White Rice, white rice flour, millet
**** I would delete these. If you really need something try brown rice.
Pea protein powder, almonds
****** Almonds and some other nuts are good. Peas are high sulfur.
Olive oil, flax oil (not seed, too much fibre), fresh organic almonds but ground before eaten.
*** These chew up your gut. try animal derived enzymes.
beet derived betain hydrochloric acid
dairy free probiotics
flaxseed oil, very fresh (I'd prefer to ground flax seed fresh, but the fibre causes too much pain)
****Check the supplement lists in Amalgam Illness. there are things that you are missing.
parasite and Colon Cleansing:
clarkia - Wormwood , green walnut hull, cloves
**** Be careful with these toxic things.
uva ursi (in place of garlic)
FOODS ABSOLUTELY NOT ALLOWED
Garlic, onion, leek, chives, shallots
Cabbage, broccoli, bok choy, lettuce, water cress, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, turnips, asparagus
**** of the above I wonder why not green tea - contains antioxidants
SUPPLEMENTS ABSOLUTELY NOT ALLOWED
MSM - sulphur
Vitamin B1 or B7 in high doses
flax seed ground or seed
Please, please please, anybody with similar experience, share stories and help increase to the list of allowed foods. I want to balance myself, and experience no pain for atleast a month before I begin chelating with DMSA again. Any advice is welcome.
