How to treat Pyrrole Disorder
Until recently, I did not know anything about Pyrrole Disorder. That is strange if you understand that I have been helping people with depression and anxiety for more than 20 years. One of the women I was helping with chronic inflammation called me to tell me that she believes she had her depression cured. She attended a lifestyle program at Weimar Institute with Dr Neil Nedley. They tested her for Zinc and vitamin B6 deficiency and she tested positive for Pyrrole disorder.
Pyrrole disorder is one of the most under diagnosed disorders; in fact, some doctors say that it does not exist. Other names for the disorder are pyroluria, kryptopyrrole or mauve factor. The fact is that most doctors have no idea what it is never mind how to treat it. If more doctors were trained to look for the symptoms about 10% of the general population would be diagnosed with this symptom. Here is the good news, it is relatively easy to diagnose and to treat.
Pyrrole is a genetic blood disorder. Kryptopyrrole is a byproduct of hemoglobin production in the human body. It is excreted via your urine. In those people suffering from Pyrrole the kryptopyrrole bind with vitamin B6 and zinc. This leads to chronic Zinc and B6 deficiency leading to an impressive list of symptoms.
Pyrrole is a deficiency of Zinc, Vitamin B6 and arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is an omega-6 unsaturated fatty acid your body requires to function properly to mediate inflammatory reactions. Without it, you will have chronic low-grade inflammation. When your doctor tells you that you need more Omega acid in your diet this is what he is really referring too.
The Physical signs of Pyrrole Disorder Are as follows:
- White spots on your fingernails
- Cold feet and hands even in warm weather
- Pale skin or skin that burns easily
- Creaking joints, especially knees
- Dental issues, this disorder affects the enamel in teeth.
- A sweet fruity breath and body odor can be detected at times
- Weight issues, especially picking up weight in the stomach area
Symptoms of Pyrrole Disorder:
- Anxiety and Depression is the major symptoms so if you are suffering from this why to get the treatment or blood test. I say the treatment because it is a simple one, that is natural and cannot cause any damage to your health.
- It is associated with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
- Inability to cope with everyday stress.
- Panic attacks
- Sensitivities to lights, odors and sounds.
- Unexplained mood swings and temper episodes that leave you thinking, what was that all about?
- Memory loss that is more than misplacing your keys.
- Joint Pain and stiffness, often causing back pain
- Irritable bowel syndrome or symptoms of poor digestion.
- Cravings for sugar and carbohydrate type foods.
Pyrrole is a type of oxidative stress. Lifestyle is a major factor, our modern diets and sedentary lifestyles cause chronic infections that may contribute to this disorder.
Caution: Pyrrole Disorder
All things in balance. Large doses of Zinc can be neurotoxic and interferes with the magnesium and copper absorption. Many people already have a deficiency in both of these so make sure that any supplement you take compensates for at least the magnesium. Vitamin B6 can also be harmful if taken in large dosages. This is especially the case it taken over a period of time. So the best option is to test for a zinc and B6 deficiency or to take the supplements and note if it improves your depression or symptoms. If not, stop taking the supplements.
