Young Living’s Sulfurzyme contains MSM and Chinese Wolfberry (Ningxia wolfberry supplies nutrients to enhance the proper assimilation and metabolism of sulfur.) Sulfurzyme (#3243), available in capsules or powder, is a unique combination of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), the protein-building compound found in breast milk, fresh fruits and vegetables, and Ningxia wolfberry (Lycium barbarum). Together, they create a new concept in balancing the immune system and supporting almost every major function of the body. Of particular importance is the ability of MSM to equalize water pressure inside of the cells—a considerable benefit for those plagued with bursitis, arthritis, and tendonitis.
Hair and Scalp Problems and Sulfur
Sulfur is the single most important mineral for maintaining the strength and integrity of the hair and hair follicle. (Article: Hair and Scalp Problems Helped by Using Essential Oils)
Hyperthyroid (Graves Disease) and Sulfur
Graves disease, unlike Hashimoto’s disease, is an autoimmune disease which results in an excess of thyroid hormone production. MSM has been studied for its ability to reverse many kinds of autoimmune diseases. MSM is a key component of Young Living’s Sulfurzyme. When the thyroid becomes overactive and produces excess thyroid hormone, the following symptoms occur:
Symptoms of hyperthyroidism:
• Premature gray hair
• Diabetes mellitus
• Vitiligo (loss of skin pigment)
Pain, Peppermint Essential Oil and Sulfur
One of the most effective essential oils for blocking pain is peppermint (peppermint is a very versatile oil). A 1994 study showed that peppermint oil is extremely effective in blocking calcium channels and substance P, important factors in the transmission of pain signals.
Other Young Living essential oils that have unique pain-relieving properties: Helichrysum, Idaho Balsam Fir, and Douglas Fir and of course the popular blend, PanAway.
MSM, a source of organic sulfur, has also been proven to be extremely effective for killing pain, especially tissue and joint pain. The subject of a best-selling book by Dr. Ronald Lawrence and Dr. Stanley Jacobs, MSM is defining the treatment of pain, especially associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia. Sulfurzyme is an excellent source of MSM.
Weak or Brittle Nails and Sulphur
Poor or weak nails, often containing ridges, indicate a sulfur deficiency… Young Living’s Sulfurzyme can help fill that deficiency.
Nail Strengthening Essential Oil Blend:
• 4 drops Wheat Germ Oil
• 4 drops frankincense
• 4 drops myrrh
• 4 drops lemon
Put all of the drops of your essential oil into a small glass bottle. Apply 1 drop of the above mixture on each nail 2-3 times weekly.
Note: keep fingers away from eyes after application – if any essential oil should get in the eye use a drop of olive oil to dilute, NEVER try to dilute an essential oil with water.
Improvement with Osteoarthritis
What the science says: MSM (Methylsulfonyl-methane) is derived from sulfur and may prevent joint and cartilage degeneration, say University of California, San Diego, scientists. People with osteoarthritis of the knee who took MSM had 25% less pain and 30% better physical function at the end of a 3-month trial at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences.
Fibromyalgia and Sulphur
Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder of soft tissues (by contrast, arthritis occurs in the joints.) Symptoms include general body pain, in some parts worse than others, usually brought on by short periods of exercise.The pain is ubiquitous and continuous. It interrupts sleep patterns so that the fourth stage of sleep is never attained, and thus the body cannot rejuvenate and heal. Fibromyalgia is an acid condition in which the liver is toxic.
The best natural treatments for fibromyalgia are omega-3 fats such as: Young Living’s Omega Blue, flax seed, proteolytic enzymes such as bromelain and pancreatin, and MSM (Young Living’s Sulfurzyme contains MSM.)
According to UCLA researcher and neuropsychiatrist Ronald Lawrence, M.D. Ph.D. and Stanley Jacob, M.D., co-authors of a bestselling book, The Miracle of MSM, The Natural Solution for Pain, supplementation with MSM offers a breakthrough in the treatment of fibromyalgia.
Along with Sulfurzyme supplementation for Fibromyalgia here are two easy Young Living essential oil topical recipes that may be helpful:
