    What methods have you used or would you recommend for lowering sulfur levels with molybdenum without depleting copper levels?

    The obvious choice would be to take a copper supplement, but doc is concerned about copper toxicity. My copper levels are slightly low because of the molybdenum I've been taking.

    I've been looking at Thorne's Basic Nutrients supplement, as it has molybdenum and copper in it. I like it moreso because of the b vitamins doc wants me on for adrenals and the methyl-folate for the MTHFR.

    What's the best way to navigate this? o_O

    Eat nuts? (or other foods high in copper)

    Pretty hard to o.d. from food. Although I did get o.d.'d on selenium or something from eating 1/2 Brazil nut per day for several months. But I just discontinued and the problem cleared in a day or two.

    I would love to eat nuts and other foods high in copper, but dealing with excessive yeast has further limited my diet choices.

    I am eating more mushrooms and zucchini, as they're relatively high in copper. I'm just concerned with removing more copper than I'm taking in with food.

    u.s.a.
    hey Caledonia
    what symptoms did you get from too much selenium? I have taken minute amount of molbydenum drops frequently over some years per Rich V'a advice for MCS,and sulphur etc and recently got in habit of couple drops selenium too in smoothies until I realized thru trial and error that Selenium drops were making me dizzy and nauseated---been havng more trouble with that this year but it was intensified every time I had selenium--I isolated it thru trial and error

    so have axed that from my small list of things I take........it made me nervous about molybdenum too so stopped that........after all isn't that used in batteries? ;)

    Interesting. I was also doing a maintenance dose of moly.

    I also had an issue with moly around the same time as the selenium.

    The issue was a sharp stabbing pain. For one of them the pain was in my left rib. Felt like someone was stabbing me with a knife - pretty painful. For the other, I had a sharp stabbing pain in my left thigh.

    It happened within a few weeks of each other. I worked it out through trial and error and probably some muscle testing.
