Sulphur and Itching Skin

NOTE:  This article is long.

So, listening to Nigel Stanford and getting ready to finish up Book 12 in the Metatron’s Army series.

Yes, there will be a Book 13 but I can happily say that will be the last.  Metatron’s Legacy, which is finished, takes place 20 years after and is a single title release. 

images-5To warm up the keyboard I thought I would post the latest discovery.  I have confirmed one cause of uncontrollable itching skin.

Specifically, the shins.

SF Bay Area Residents Take Note!  It is not a coincidence the individuals I have been in contact with who have inquired about the uncontrollable itching all live or lived in the SF Bay Area.

This is also the place where doctors cannot find a cause for the feeling of bugs crawling beneath the skin and have apparently told those suffering from it it’s all in their heads.  However, as I wrote in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity, there’s a good chance it’s excess calcium and should be considered and investigated by having a hair mineral analysis.  I have reason to believe that women are more likely to suffer from this phenomenon if they have taken or are taking birth control pills.

Sulphur can be the cause of the horrendous itching.

Because the body has become allergic to it.

Testing was NOT Easy!!!!

In my situation, it was extremely difficult to determine what the heck was going on because the itching was short-lived and appeared to be caused by dairy.

I now understand why.  There is a “sick little relationship” between sulphur and calcium.

It was only after investigating other causal relationships with food that I was able to finally understand what the heck has been going on!  Thanks to all that healthy eating I was supposedly doing I developed an allergy to sulphur.

Fermented foods and those purported to be anti-inflammatory are – for someone who suffers from this particular intolerance – the absolute worst thing you could do for your health.

I have written about this previously.

Eating kefir, certain highly fermented cheeses, natural butter, probiotics, natural pickles, and other anti-inflammatory foods left me with an intolerance to Sulphur.

In other words an allergy that manifested as severe itching of lower legs and forearms and back of neck and some scalp.

This is exacerbated by drinking high-calc (hard) water.

The Sulphur intolerance will, if unchecked, get so bad you become intolerant to Sulphur foods, which make up a number of fruits and vegetables, as well as legumes.

In other words, healthy stuff.

The nightmare doesn’t stop there.  If you develop this intolerance, you will become sensitive to sulfites.  Sulfites are in almost all preservatives and dried foods.

Dried fruits, trail mixes.  You know, healthy stuff.

Red wine has varying degrees of sulfites so you will have trouble with some but not others.

The same of beer though champagne is not a problem, nor is tequila.

This intolerance is very easy to test for.  Simply go to the local health food store and pick up a tube of Boiron Sulphur.  It’s a homeopathic remedy.  Take 3 to 5 pellets and see if the horrendous itching starts.

If you are going to try this, have a tube of cortisol cream and/or Benadryl tablets at hand because you will suffer if you have this intolerance.

Be aware that Sulphur causes the body to retain calcium so you should cut back on dairy as well if it appears there is a related intolerance.

You will likely have to switch from coffee to espresso.

Hey, at least you don’t have to give up caffeine!

You’ll need to play trial and error with foods and beverages while you get a handle on the situation.

I have found that the pinot noir varietal is the red I can best tolerate though champagne is hands down the best.  It helps the body digest food and get rid of excess calcium – and there are no problematic sulfites to worry about. 

How the intolerance happens is fairly straight forward.  Thanks to sulfites being in about everything (it’s a preservative) we are inundated with Sulphur from a number of sources, whether you shop on the outer edges of the grocery store or in the middle aisles.

Because Sulphur causes the body to retain more calcium, if you are taking calcium supplements, consuming a lot of calcium rich foods, and drinking hard water, you are adding insult to a very nasty food intolerance injury.

There is hope!  It would be worthwhile making a list of foods you have trouble with and see if you don’t find a pattern.

It was how I identified the problem with Sulphur.

After eliminating the offending foods for a length of time, you can try to reintroduce them as “once in awhile” foods.

For more on this I suggest reading up on elimination and immune healing diets but beware – almost all of them tell you to eat anti-inflammatory foods which are the major source of the problem.  It was following this type of “healthy” eating that led to trouble for me.

The trick is to allow your body to heal by giving it a rest from this nutrient.  The inflammation will reduce and eventually disappear once you stop ingesting the foods and beverages that are causing it!

In this case – foods and beverages high in Sulphur and/or sulfites. 

Not all dairy will be a problem.  I can have provolone cheese with no issue.  Soft cheeses and those high in vitamin K (again considered healthy) are the worst for me and may be for you.

Grains are a big time problem.  And those such as sourdough which are supposedly okay, are the worst offenders.

I suspect it’s because of the fermentation process involved in making it.

Pay attention to what you eat and drink and how your body reacts.  It takes some sleuthing but you can figure it out and once you know what you’re dealing with, you can put a strategy in place to fix the situation.

The most important step is to stop ingesting whatever is causing the problem.  It is the very first step and the most important.

Be well!

Now, back to book 12 – which doesn’t yet have a title though it’s almost finished.

Bind:  Book 9 in the series is available for pre-order and will be available February 1, 2019.
