Diseases Related To Copper Imbalances
Sympathetic Nervous System Dominance
Other Toxic Metal Accumulation
Copper is both an essentail element and a toxic one. Owing to the widespread use of copper in our water pipes plus other exposures to copper more people are toxic with copper than deficient in copper. Copper toxicity can also come from the use of the contraceptive pill, IUDs and fertility hormones. The biggest problem with copper toxicity is that high levels of copper antagonize zinc which can leave you zinc deficient. High levels of copper may also be a factor in post natal depression and or mental illness, especially anxiety, paranoia and schizophrenia. Extreme fears and hallucinations are also related to copper excess.
Copper is important in the human body for good health however only in very low amount compared to zinc which is often deficient in people with copper excess, therefore the reason a person can have copper toxicity can be as a result of having a zinc deficiency so its important to check your zinc levels at the same time as checking your copper levels.
