  • The more I learn about copper, the more confused I become.


     


    For people with ADHD, copper toxicity and subsequent detoxification can improve symptoms dramatically. Zinc is part of the push-pull balancing for copper toxicity, so there's also ample evidence to suggest that to rebalance the supply of serotonin in the brain naturally, carefully monitoring your zinc-copper ratios is important.


     


    I'll dig into this interview tonight, sounds like it could be very interesting.

    & another cautionary tale about mega dosing with vitamin d3, especially if not balancing with vitamin A

    fake it till you make it

  • but how much is mega dosage when it comes to Vitamin D?    I currently take 5000IUs      I currently base it on 1000IUs per 25 pounds based on Dave suggestion.   I still need more based on that method since I weigh more than 100 pounds but cant afford more than that with the other supplements and food that I spend on.

    Very true.

    This is why I base my dosage off my blood tests.

    Nothing 'wrong' with high doses (imo) to raise blood levels to get 'in range', but balance with vitamin A in the form of retinol, preferably from diet, to protect against vitamin D toxicity.

    i'd say get the right balance of copper, zinc, iron +vit A! by eating grass fed beef liver. don't go crazy on it. have like 3 servings 2-3 ozs spread out through the week. maybe even an ounce. 


     


    that is if it is really grass fed, on grass/foliage that isnt from deficient soil.


     


    of course if all our food was raised naturally and was grown in rich soil or subsisted off of nutritious matter from rich soil we'd have no problem.


     


    I think people when they really get down to it, they understand they need healthy natural nutrient rich food.


    The only problem is the game is rigged from the start, even for people who shop for organic vegetables at whole foods or grass fed meat.


    it's why vitamin supplementation is necessary in most cases.

    Where is Antony Reed when you need him? What Morely said about ascorbic acid is scandalous!

    Most of what Morely said is true. But there is so much that needs to be taken with a grain of salt as well. Too much to break down here honestly it would take me too long.

  • John, I hope you are able to break it down at some point. One of the reasons I shared this is because I wanted it to stir things up a bit.
