Another villain in mental-emotional symptoms is mineral poisoning. Copper, for instance, is a trace mineral essential, in small amounts, to the production of red blood cells. In larger amounts, however, the mineral acts as an intoxicant and brain stimulant. Abnormality high levels of copper are found in many schizophrenics, women with post-partum psychosis, and hyperactive children. Unfortunately, we have too much copper in our environment. Much plumbing is done with copper pipes, and acidic water will leach trace amounts of the mineral from the pipes and put it into your stomach. Compounding the problem is the fact that our national diet is deficient in zinc, a mineral that helps prevent copper excess. OP practitioners will prescribe zinc and vitamin B-6 to bring down elevated copper levels.
