Do you have Arthritis?

If you do, you almost certainly have a BORON and SULPHUR deficiency

What is Boron?

You've stumbled upon what actually started this website off. Jim Campbell was researching 'healing water' simply because he has a typical scientist's inquisitive mind, putting cause and effect together, and found the fascinating reasons why these springs have such incredible healing powers.

The answer seems to be that there is boron in the water. In Australia, arthritis affects less than 1% of the population, and very few animals get arthritis, because there is more boron in the soil, and more boron in the water than in the Western world. 

In Israel there is even less arthritis, and guess what, the soil is rich in boron. 

Then I uncovered a conspiracy. Arthritis and its close relative osteoporosis affect about 30% of all people today. The latter is responsible for more long term hospital cases that any other single cause. Yet the boron answer has been known for over twenty years, and the efforts of the health authorities have been to suppress this remedy. The impending EU regulations are even seeking to ban boron in supplements. 

We must remember that no man can cure any disease, but if we give the body adequate nutrients and conditions then it will cure itself. That's our legacy of selective breeding through survival of the fittest. 

So, I determined to educate people, and the rest is history, as they say. 

What is Sulphur?

We all need a lot of sulphur in our body. Our skin, hair and nails all have a high sulphur content - in fact if you have ever been unfortunate enough to burn your hair or skin, the nasty smell that followed is the sulphur content burning!

The Ancient Greeks were aware of the health values of sulphur, and used sulphur fumes from garlic to treat many different conditions. Although sulphur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body, and can be found in almost every cell, it is only in recent times that we have begun to rediscover the importance of sulphur. Recent interest in sulphur has been stimulated by its veterinary use in the form of methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) on horses. MSM is a naturally occurring organic sulphur compound found in all living plant and animal tissues. MSM is easily destroyed by food processing, and this, in combination with the fact that sulphur is continually excreted by the body, point to the need to include sulphur in the diet all the time.

MSM is responsible for the flexible bond between cells, including those that make up the skin. It acts to block undesirable chemical and physical cross-linking or bonding of collagen which is associated with tough, ageing skin. Approximately half of the total body sulphur is concentrated in the body's muscles, skin, and bones. It is present in keratin, the tough substance in the skin, nails and hair. Sulphur is necessary for making collagen, the primary constituent of cartilage and connective tissue, but it is also responsible for the conformation of body proteins through the formation of disulfide bonds, which hold connective tissue together. MSM does this in conjunction with vitamins and amino acids, and the process is going on 24 hours a day. The body never stops making new cells, and this calls for an unceasing supply of MSM and all other essential nutrients. 

Tests conducted with laboratory animals indicated that wound healing occurred faster with a group receiving MSM, but even faster with both MSM and vitamin C supplementation. Common signs of sulphur deficiency, including slow wound healing, scar tissue, brittle hair or nails, gastrointestinal problems, arthritis, acne, depression, and more. The body is in a constant state of repair, but if we do not have all the necessary 'parts' the body will produce weak, dysfunctional cells.

Organic sulphur is a vital ingredient in the formation of keratin, collagen and elastin (disulphide bonds) which give flexibility, tone and strength to :- Muscles, bones, joints, internal membranes, skin, hair and nails. The human body contains a relatively large amount of sulphur. 

During the last few decades, a number of factors have taken their toll:

Over farming of land leading to deficiencies in the food chain.
Long term storage of foods.
More processed and preserved foods.
A large increase in the use of fast foods and pre-prepared foods.
