I’ve created this infographic below to share some of the common signs and symptoms of zinc deficiency. It makes for easy reading and pictures are just a bit more user friendly.
Depression? Anxiety? Autoimmune disease? Too much copper and not enough zinc from a plant based diet is the reason why your vegetarian or vegan diet may be gradually causing you health problems.
Copper is not only a beautiful, useful and valuable metal, it’s also a nutrient that is found in many food sources, and essential for good health. But what happens when we have too much of it in our body? High copper levels can cause all sorts of chaos…
Since realising that I had to change to a low copper diet, this following recipe has become my staple, almost every day breakfast. It’s friggin’ good! It’s a stir fry, made with Kangkong (also known as water spinach), spring onion and whiting.
I recently realised that I need to limit my copper intake because of the whole Zinc/Copper ratio thing that can be such a big part of Pyrrole disorder. So there goes the nuts and seeds – except pumpkin seeds and roasted, they’re awesome!
