Copper Toxicity

Filter
Copper overload is particularly common in women. Estrogen can cause copper retention and accumulation and high copper levels can impact estrogen metabolism in the liver allowing it to accumulate with a related decrease in progesterone.
Hormonal events such as menarche, pregnancy or menopause can trigger it. Copper toxicity is also often associated with changes in methylation status and poor adrenal and/or liver function. Excess copper can result or contribute to a wide range of symptoms including changes in thyroid function, metabolism, hormonal balance, and mood changes including irritability, emotional numbing, anxiety, panic attacks and depression. There may be digestive upsets, fatigue, headaches, decreased immune function and frequent yeast infections.
