Hello all my curezone folka. Hopefully you can help me plzz, help me plzz!!!!
I started having digestive problems about 3 years ago, which sent my digestion to shit! My stools where really light brown, soft, and smelly. Since then my stools have improved, smell is not bad, darker in color, but have not went back to original form.
I have had a colonoscopy, a endocscopy, tested for celiac and a number of other things and nothing. My iron has been low, ferritin normal, but MCV and MCH have been low for 3 years now. I can feel that my body is different. My thyorid has been tested, along with hep, hiv, lupus, CRP, along with other inflammation markers, and nothing has shown up.
Im wondering could this be a food allergy? I cut diary out and noticed a slight improvement after 2 weeks. However, during the time I got sick I was on zinc about 50-75 mg a day. During my dairy cut I also added copper and my doctor noticed a improvement in my numbers. I just wanna get better, but cant pinpoint exactly what the problem is. I have not been tested for food allergies, only celiac which came back negative.

I had this problem as well. Probiotics & Fiber supplement helped considerably. I stumbled across this guy's site (feelgoodthrills dot com) and stools went back to normal. Seemed to be the problem was candida or some gut infection but his advice worked.
Copper deficiency and low manganese; how to correct?
First post here on Curezon, long time lurker.
Little background on myself. I've had a few mineral level tests done, two hair analyses, a year apart, and most recently a RBC analysis. I suspected that I had a copper deficiency, which was confirmed by my first hair analysis in 2015 (it showed that I had a severe copper deficiency). The second hair analysis a year later showed the same thing. Low copper was also shown on the RBC test. The second hair analysis and the RBC test also showed low manganese.
I'm afraid to start supplementing copper again out of fear of lowering manganese even further and vice versa with the manganese lowering copper.
***What would be the best protocol to supplement both manganese and copper (in addition to a diet relatively high in both minerals) so that I don't throw the balance out of whack even further?
Some symptoms that I've experienced:
*Adrenal fatigue (mostly solved through diet and Vitamin B complex)
*Suspected candida and/or intestinal dysbiosis *Seborrheic dermatitis on head, face, penis and scrotum
Thanks for your reply - do you think that the zinc levels could be low enough to justify abnormal ...
Thanks for your reply - do you think that the zinc levels could be low enough to justify abnormal hair loss though?
I've had a scalp biopsy and it said no signs of androgenic alopecia. In fact my scalp looked healthy apart from some fungal spores. My hair is shedding a lot though!
My ft3 levels are 4.3 on ref 3.5 - 6.8
And ft4 13.3 on reference 12 - 22
Could my low copper and zinc be linked to low thyroid and hairloss?
