    How do you know if you shouldn't take sulphur? A naturopath that I only saw twice suggested that maybe I should avoid sulphur but I cannot remember why? Any symptoms to clue us? Or is it all some test?
    (I have started taking Sam-e.....)

    If it were me, I'd want a solid reason why. I'd go back and ask for further clarification.

    Sulphur is found in many foods such as eggs, broccoli, meat, etc. It's also in MSM which I've been taking but have now stopped since I got my 23andme results.

    Some people have problems making sulfate out of sulfur (related to the SUOX enzyme reaction IIRC) and sometimes people with that problem can have problems with excess sulfites as a result. This can apparently, impact glutathione levels negatively. You can google sulfite sensitivity and see if you think it might apply to you maybe?

    I wouldn't avoid sulfur without a very good, clear reason either.

    You can order sulfite and sulfate strips to test your urine, if you are concerned. Dr. Yasko offers them, but they're cheaper at CTL Scientific. The CBS mutations will also cause excess sulfite/sulfate. You can also have nutritional deficiencies, like with molybdenum, that will keep sulfites from being turned into sulfates.
