So, what about arthritis and copper? Well, arthritis pain is often seen in those deficient in copper, zinc, magnesium, and pryidoxine. Copper is classified as an essential mineral because a copper deficiency can produce various symptoms. Copper is usually found in foods containing iron. The liver and brain contain the largest amounts of copper in the human body, however, other organs will contain smaller amounts.
If the body does not acquire a sufficient amount of copper, hemoglobin production is decreased and copper deficiency anemia can result. Insufficient amounts can lead to inefficient utilization of iron and protein, diarrhea and stunted growth. Various enzyme reactions require copper.
Long-term use of oral contraceptives can upset the balance of copper in the body causing either excessively high cholesterol levels. This may require a copper dietary supplement. For the body to work properly it must maintain the proper balance of copper and zinc. An imbalance can lead to thyroid problems and possibly thyroid disease. In addition, low (and high) copper levels can be found in those with mental and emotional problems. Problems deep inside muscles, tendons, and joint problems such as arthritis, bursitis and rheumatism seem common in copper malnutrition.
Taken at one half to one teaspoon per day, ionic copper mineral water can be used to supplement a mineral deficiency in copper.
Please first consult a qualified practitioner to determine your nutritional needs. Below is a list of conditions in which copper may be involved as a remedy or that are believed to possibly be related to a copper deficiency:
|Cholesterol||Dry brittle hair||Gray hair||Hyperactivity|
|Hernias||Thyroid disorders||Iron storage disease||Kawasaki disease|
|Liver cirrhosis||Parasites||Premenstrual (PMTS)||Ruptured disc|
