DEVIL IN THE GARLIC, HOW DISRUPTED SULFUR METABOLISM CAN WRECK OUR HEALTH, AND A PROGRAM TO FIX THE PROBLEM
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Sulfur is essential for health. Unfortunately, there are many aspects of life in the modern world that impair our ability to adequately process and repackage dietary sulfur into the many crucial sulfur-based compounds our cells need. As this impairment progresses, it can manifest in a wide range of symptoms and diseases, all of which are attributed to other causes. Dr. Nigh will review basic sulfur metabolism before explaining the ways it can become impaired, how the body attempts to correct this impairment, and the symptoms that can result from it. The talk will conclude with Maria Palmer, NTP, reviewing the low-sulfur dietary protocol she developed and that Dr. Nigh has prescribed for hundreds of patients, often with dramatically beneficial results.
