Parasites are supposedly destroyed by presence of sulfur according to articles I am finding .
I am brainstorming : Could this possibly apply to other organisms? And has anyone tried adding sulfur to parasite/ protozoa protocols?

Just a thought ...

Freeze Dried Garlic & Allicin contain good amounts of sulfur.

Garlic has been a tremendous help across the board for many kinds of infections - and parasites - for many centuries, around the world.

Intravenous Garlic has even been used to treat brain infections in China (and maybe elsewhere). Here in the U.S., some naturopathic doctors are licensed to administer Garlic IV solutions.

As foods: garlic, onions and their relatives are good sources, too. Cooking changes some properties, though.

Some people have problems processing nutritional sulfur. For what can help,

Organic sulfur is different, it definitely hits parasites. The herx is awful for me. Don't know if it's babs or proto

VERY interesting link - CFS and lyme:

http://tinyurl.com/plpxgs6

To lower homocysteine (Bb we know triggers high levels), ONE of the pathways to lower homocyseine is called the transsulfuration pathway which uses B6 and CBS (an enzyme) -> cysteine -> taurine (lowers cholesterol) + GSH (= glutathione) + sulfate.

The other pathway is a "recyle" pathway called remethylation.

Interesting opinion:

"The more vaccines administered, the greater the risk of death

from failure of methylation and transsulfuration."

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:26HAgt-FwucJ:http://www.gardasilsyndrome.com/

"The Lyme disease spirochaete, Borrelia burgdorferi, produces the LuxS enzyme both in vivo and in vitro;

***this enzyme catalyses the

synthesis of homocysteine ***

and 4,5-dihydroxy-2,3-pentanedione (DPD) from a by-product of methylation reactions."

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17600074

Homocysteine...to counter, WE need all of the nutrients and enzymes (genetic implications!) to lower homocysteine.
