i will divide my copper into 3 doses,
50mg zinc pico before breakfast, 2mg copper straight after breakfast, then 2mg after lunch (with other vits), and 2mg after dinner (with my other vits)
i will do this increased 6mg daily copper for 4 weeks and see what i notice
- i thought taking zinc and copper at similar times would cause absorption problems? i think i was advised to take one in morning and other in evening, but i could be remembering wrong
i will mention the urine test to my dr when requesting my iron levels are checked,
That does make sense about the zinc/copper taking years to load up inside of you, but the problem is i've been taking 50-100mg zinc glyconate and 2mg copper for the last 5 years, daily!
so there must be another reason for my low levels,
what do you think about taking a digestive enzyme tablet (the now foods super enzymes i posted ^), and see if this helps, which i think would indicate an absorption problem
By the way what do you make of these 2mg copper chelate tablets, they're very cheap, 300 tablets for $3! - http://www.amazon.com/Copper-300-Tabs-S ... rds=COPPER
too good to be true?
- diet before starting this wahls one, was fairly health ishh, western diet, eating dairy, gluten, sugar,

dinner = - chicken lasagne (or) - spaghetti bolognese - chicken with pasta/rice/potato , each meal included small portion of vegetables.

* i avoided red meat.
i was walking up 2 flights of stairs 4-5 times daily, 2 steps at a time, ok strength,
now i only go upstairs once a day as legs too weak, and i crawl up the stairs, 1 step at a time on all fours,
its a big change, lets hope its just down to my copper deficiency
i was weight training three times a week, walking for about 30 minutes a day (throughout day),
