I contracted Valley Fever in 2002 and I was sick, (mostly like pneumonia, but it wasn't), for 2 years. My doctor kept prescribing me penicillin, but it never worked for very long. Finally, he decided to test me for V.F. This came back positive and his cure was a med that he himself said he wouldn't advise.

I then began to search the internet for a cure and I came across a website from a pharmacist from Bakersfield, Ca. He was retired, but back in the 40's, 50's, 60's, he had a lot of people asking him for a cure of which he had none. He finally took the time to look into it, and knowing that it was a fungus, he figured that since they use sulfur on plants to kill fungus, why wouldn't it work on humans.

Well, the fungus they use on plants is poisonous to humans, but there is a type of sulfur that humans CAN digest. He figured out a dosage for it and began to give it to his customers. He had great success!

I decided to see if I could obtain some, and I found that all the pharmacies had removed it from their shelves. I finally went to the web and found some. That was about 2004. It is called "Flowers of sulfur". I bought a bottle, it was about 32oz of dry powder. Then I bought some large gel capsules. (I don't remember the size but they were approximately 3/4" long and 1/4" in diameter.)

This whole buying spree cost me about $15.00. The Flowers of Sulfur is probably a bit more expensive if it's still available. (I believe that "big pharma" may have played a part in getting it removed from stores because it's cheap and it works! I only used 1/4 of that bottle and still have the remainder. The pharmacist died a while back, and his son took over the web-site. The last time I looked for it, His son had a warning on it that he had been strongly advised to stop giving out this remedy and the dosage, so it was unavailable anymore. Gotta love those Pharms! )

I don't remember the exact dosage, but I believe that I took 3 capsules of flower of sulfur twice a day until I had consumed 60 capsules. That was the last time I had any symptoms! There were no side effects, except some people have a little trouble with gas. Also, this is not to be used by anyone that is allergic to sulfur!

One other thing that I know...This fungus is in the dirt of arid areas of the Southwest. The fungus gets in your lungs and then, in some people, it will begin to grow in the lungs. I contracted it while I was stuccoing a new house in Scottsdale, Az, because the workers had been driving their trucks over the dirt for weeks, and the contractor wasn't wetting the ground down periodically. It was like 4" deep moon-dust flying through the air! Within a few days, I was sick...but no more!

I developed a really bad case of valley fever back in 1970's . It came and went for years. (Which they said at the time didn't happen) Since they have found out that it can reoccur. I had a really bad bout with it in 2000 and thought I might die. I too researched it on line and found the website that the Dr posted that said Sulfur would cure it. By then the pharmacy's had taken it off the shelf. I found a privately owned drug store that was run by two old people who had owned it for years. The owner had taken her last bag of sulpher and put it behind the counter. At that point they were saying that if you ingest it it would kill you. I didn't believe it, but I figured I was gonna die anyway.

It was like a miracle, that cured me or made it go into remission. I had the healthiest 22 years after. It was great. Twenty two years later, I took a trip west. My immune system must have been weak because valley fever came back. My lungs look a mess and Drs keep wanting to operate and all sorts of things because I am in the south and they are not familiar with what VF leaves your lungs looking like, although they should be by now. I'm opting out of that.

Sooo I decided I would go the sulphur route again. All sulphur has been removed everywhere. Except for animals and agriculture. Which can't be ingested. I tried for flowers of sulpher like the man whose letter I read on this site. You can no longer buy that. So after all that can anyone tell me where I can buy some sulfur that is not mixed with other things and can be ingested. Because I'm at my wit's end. I would really appreciate the help.

Dana L,

It appears that the only yellow sulfur that is available is commercial grade that is 99% pure. Not sure if that would be suitable for human consumption. The other form of organic sulfur is methylsulfonylmethane, commonly known as MSM, but this is roughly only 34% elemental sulfur. Here is a link to typical products :,aps,141&ref=nb_sb_noss_1

Just scroll the list to look at available products.



@ Dana – I did a quick check on google search and it shows you can still buy “Humco Sulfur Powder Sublime” 4oz bottle 2-pak at Wal-mart thru there online website. It is sold and shipped by AmericaRx Smart Shop. Https:// If you want to take sulfur powder, buy capsules, buy a pill maker machine. I have a Cap'M'Quik Encapsulater “O” size for years. Https:// Https://

If you want pre-made sulfur capsules, try this company, PennHerbs. They carry Flowers of Sulphur Capsules, USP - 1175 mg, 60 Veg Capsules. I never ordered from them so I'd call them on there phone first. Https://

Hi Dana L,

I take sulfur once a week, for good health. I asked my Drugstore and they ordered it for me. I live in Ontario.

Good luck.

Maaaaybe the reason you can't buy sulfur is because it is used to make gunpowder. Does it reduce edema?
