I have been taking a zinc supplement in a high dosage, (75mg, built up over a few weeks) as recommended by my practitioner. I have had long standing systemic Candida on and off for many years (30). I have been able to get it under control to a certain extent, but never really got rid of it. Any stress or upset, and it comes back. I have been on many different supplements over the years, and some have been better than others. However, through doing a lot of research myself, and reading articles on Candida have come to the conclusion that I have Copper Bio-unavailability. About 2 months ago, I did a taste mineral test, I was deficient in every mineral, apart from Copper – which tasted awful. My practitioner suggested a high zinc supplement for a couple of months to see if this would help sort my mineral levels out. I am just over a month into the regime, and I feel better than I have done in a long time. My only concern is with me taking such a high level of zinc, how will I know that the bio-unavailable Copper is being released. I have been having quite a few die-off symptoms, which are slowly going away. And am I in danger of being Copper deficient? Should you take Copper supplements if you have bio-unavailable Copper circulating in your system? I am going to do another taste test soon, to see if my mineral levels have gone up. Would like to know your opinion on this please.
