Tales from the Crib, Sulfur, the Missing Piece of Nerve Conduction

Many docs and therapists who do biomed, seem to have missed the correlation between epsom salts (sulfur) and glutathione (gssh). All the docs typically recommend glutathione for detoxification (it is a tripeptide, produced in the liver, and typically decreased in sensory children and children on the spectrum)
I first noticed the correlation with my own son. At five, he was unable to imitate and motor plan even the simplest of hand song games-always resulting in tantrums. After our first gluathione IV (after driving 6 hours) my other two sons were sliding down a sliding board in their room (on their feet like they were surfing-i know-theyre boys sigh) and then vaulting over a barricade. With my poor kids low tone, it would be a feat to just make it to the top of the slide-the rest of it would be a pipe dream.
Well, he slid down,on his feet, jumped the barricade, and turned to me and yelled "I did it!"
