    Default Copper Toxicity Syndrome

    Lawrence Wilson, MD
    July 2013

    Do you know anyone who suffers from headaches, fatigue, insomnia, depression, skin rashes, spaciness or detachment, learning disorders or premenstrual syndrome? These can be symptoms of a copper imbalance. It is an extremely common nutritional imbalance. It is often overlooked, in part because it is not always simple to detect.
    Copper is an essential trace mineral that is vitally important for both physical and mental health. It has been studied for years, including at government laboratories. However, its importance for health is still largely unappreciated. The following article is an introduction to the large subject of copper imbalance. The author is deeply indebted to Dr. Paul C. Eck, an avid copper researcher.

    COPPER'S ROLE IN THE BODY

    Copper has a number of important functions in the human body. The problem usually occurs when there is too much of it in the soft tissues of the body. Here are some of the important roles of copper:

    3. Immune Response. Copper must remain in balance with zinc. When imbalances occur, one is more prone to all infections, in particular fungal and yeast infections that are so common today.

    I've posted this before, but as a reminder to anyone new: I was diagnosed with severe Candida by a Naturopath several years ago. All the expensive remedies and diet changes helped for a while, but didn't cure the problem. Then I did a zinc test, found I was deficient, and took zinc combined with betaine hydrochloride for a month. The BH was to compensate for lack of stomach acid, caused by zinc deficiency. Once in balance, I just took the zinc.

    Problem gone, never to return. I think we probably get enough copper from water pipes, for those on scheme water.

    You really persevered until you found the problem — it was a good example to all of us to keep looking for the solution to the problem. So much of modern medicine — both conventional and alternative — is just treating the symptom instead of finding the underlying problem and fixing it. I was so happy you found the solution! So it was easy to remember

    Yeh, I can be tenacious, stubborn or pig-headed - take your pick! I'm never happy with a problem till I have got to the heart of the matter. It drives some people nuts.

    I totally agree! I'm so glad you've got it taken care of, Julieanne. Are you still taking zinc?

    Pattypans, I take it every day. I seem to have a high need for zinc - whenever I had a test in the past it showed up a little low, so I don't take chances.
