Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Thanks Birdy, that was interesting...I know that all my levels were off, I think copper was one of them, but can't remember if it was high or low...I think they had me supplementing it for a while, so I'm thinking low.

I found this interesting (from your second link) because of my adrenal problem:

Adrenal insufficiency: The Major Cause of Copper Toxicity

Although there are numerous reasons for the prevalence of copper toxicity, the most important cause is adrenal gland insufficiency. Individuals with adrenal insufficiency are unable to utilize copper properly. The reason for this is that copper can only be utilized in the body if it is attached to a protein substance for transport and storage.

The major protein that copper is attached to is called ceruloplasmin. Ceruloplasmin is a protein which binds copper so that it can be utilized in biochemical reactions.

When the adrenal glands are underactive, they are unable to send out a message to the liver to release ceruloplasmin from the liver and, therefore, copper becomes biounavailable.

As a result of excessive tissue storage of biounavailable or unbound copper, a deficiency of available copper occurs, even when dietary intake of copper is more than adequate. The result may be a craving for foods high in copper, such as chocolate, avocados, etc. The other result is multiple bodily dysfunctions as a direct or indirect result of copper imbalance.

I started out doing coffee enemas but was told by my practitioners that my state of health, and liver, was not to the point where I could handle them, and they would cause me more harm than good.
Why was this? Is it because it pulls out too many toxins?

(if I don't have lyme... which I'm actually beginning to suspect less and less)

Didn't you have a positive WB?

Carla,

I am wondering, the lady I talked about a while ago who tested positive for Lyme years ago, her periods are really bad. Well, around the time of the time of the month, she gets bad "meningitis flares"...isn't that also suggestive of Lyme?

Julie,

I wonder what my LLMD will say about the ecoffee. I have a REALLY sensitive system, so I wonder.

I assume so. I was under the care of a Naturopath at the time, and the main modality they used was bioenergetics (bioscan, bioset, vibratory/energy medicine).

My body DID NOT want to detox, my system was very touchy, so they had to proceed slowly with treatment and only what my body was ready for.

Birdy, great links on the Copper. Wilson's disease is something that was suspected for me a long time ago. i had a lot of symptoms and signs of heavy copper levels, especially copper flecks in my eyes.

Paula, I left chat when that guy showed up.

I kicked the freak out

Sounds wonderful guys :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Paula, I pm'd you the practiitoners name.

I would like the chat link also, whenever you can pm it to me :)

Well, you can PM me the link, but I'm not sure how often I can visit. They have blocked chat rooms here at work (I've tried, lol) and at home I don't spend a LOT of time on the computer anymore, but may make an exception, lol.

Ok. Now I know why I have been having all these wierd symptoms. I just started my period! I get really wierd symptoms around that time. Doesn't make sense to me at all!

I used to get HORRIBLE symptoms around my period. Awful! I absolutely HATED my period. Did I shout enough for ya'all, lol.

Egads, new chat room and already a freak?! :lol:

April,

Our menstrual cycles are a built in body detox for us women, during flow the body is doing a cleansing of sort so I think it's pretty typical to have a flare up of symptoms at that time.

LOL! A freak! That's funny!

Donna,

When I actually *do* get my periods, I am bed-ridden and don't want to eat, drink, talk or anything. I hate them too! Ugh, and the cramps. Makes me glad I haven't had one since August. :P

Everyone,

So I think this silly thread is why I never can get any hwk done! LOL! I seemingly think "uh oh, what if I missed a post" :lol::lol::lol:

I signed up for the chat too, but I still haven't gotten the email. I may sign up under a different email, because hotmail never gets those emails. Hmm

Carla,

No, I don't have a positive WB. The results from labcorp aren't back yet (and even so I wouldn't trust that lab's negative). I'm feeling amazing now (I think it's the weather and chelation) but I still have some lyme-typical symptoms such as stiff shoulders.

Paula,

I'd also like the link for the chat. :)

The only time I can possibly miss a post is when I'm sleeping, lol. I hit "new posts" every few minutes while I'm at work. :P

If most of us weren't Lymies I wouldn't have suggested it .... I figured it was relevant .... Most of us are on LN anyway, though it's not affiliated with LN.
