I'm going to be trying this as well. I've got a few dark spots on my face a lots of them on my arms over the last couple of years. After reading "Why am I always so Tired?" and taking the questionaire, I'm sure copper toxicity is part of my problem.
I've been slowly switching over to low copper foods for starters. I'm taking liposomal glutathione. I have not yet started NAC. Probably in few days.
My liver was working great for about 4 months. I got better after I started Buteyko. However, the tennis and sex a few times seems to have stressed my system and created a bit of a crash.
Now I'm having lite beige bowel movements again.
The seriphos is doing a fanastic job of knocking down my high cortisol. Sleeping better again. We'll see how to copper detox goes.
By the way Laredo, I went to a mineral pool myself today in Saskatchewan. Very warm and relaxing. I think I'll skip my magnesium oil this evening....I'm sure I got enough.
" i had/have dark brown spots and freckles all over my arms and torso that sprung up in the last 4 years...they are fading with the detox and my stretch marks are gone too."
That's great. My spots WERE going away during the 5 months I was feeling great. I wasn't specifically focasing on detox, just lots of meditation and Buteyko.
Seemed like my adrenals, liver, etc started working better and I was detoxing. At the start of it, I was having 2-3 large brown completely digested bowel movements per day. Now at am back to 1 lite colored movement per day with some undigested food.
Looking forward to adding the detox approach to see if that will help. Your experience with it is inspiring.
Possibly, but I was one a high dose of vitamin C and Taurine for a long time and was still having lite bowel movements. Like a year.
It actually did not take that long for me to see an change from Buteyko. I practised particularly intensely for a couple of days and then all of a sudden, I was sleeping through the night like a rock and waking up a 4:00 am completely refreshed. The my anxiety complete stopped.
What is your morning CP? Has increased?
Do you ever pick up a copy of this book on Buteyko
This book is a must read for copper toxicity and adrenal fatigue
As noted in the book (and experienced by Laredo7), the copper dumps may make you feel worse before you feel better.
I’ve already noticed my mind racing a little more, some headaches, a little bit of anxiety. So far, all I’ve done is 100mg per day of zinc and 500 mg NAC, 400 mg Taurine
