In this video, we’re going to talk about birth control and copper overload. When you’re on birth control pills, or you have a copper IUD, this can create a lot of problems. When you increase copper, you severely decrease zinc, and you create an imbalance. Estrogen increases copper in the body. 

• Can immobilize sperm 
• Is antimicrobial 
• Can decrease zinc 
• Can decrease vitamin C 
• Can decrease iron 
• Can increase estrogen 
• Impacts the vaginal microbiome (the bacteria that regulate estrogen) 

High levels of copper can also stop the liver from removing excess amounts of estrogen. 

Symptoms of copper toxicity:
• Hyperactivity 
• Autism 
• Skin sensitivity 
• Inhibited learning 
• White spots on the nails 
• Anger or irritability 
• Ringing in the ears
• Sensitivity to shellfish 

What you could do:
• Find a safer birth control method 
• Take DIM 
• Take prebiotics and probiotics (sauerkraut, kimchi, or ferments pickles)
•  Calcium-D-glucarate 
• Take zinc
