Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

Yucca and charcoal *increased* sulfate?

    I'm working my way through Yasko's protocol, still trying to address CBS (which by now I have no doubt is a problem based on ammonia & taurine levels and other clues).

    Two weeks ago, I started taking Yucca 1/2 cap 2x/day with meals. Then on Tuesday night I took my first charcoal capsule. I woke the next morning to test my urine sulfate level, and it actually *increased* to 1200. Tested again this morning, and it was still 1200. It had been hovering around 600 to 800 prior to using yucca and charcoal, and continued in that range after adding the yucca alone.

    Can charcoal cause a temporary increase in urine sulfate before it deceases? Or do yucca and charcoal only decrease ammonia, and not sulfate? Anyone know why I am moving in the wrong direction?

    I know Shawn Bean of MTHFRSupport says it will increase when you start treating for it before it decreases.
