Healing & Detox
While this site should not be used to treat or diagnose any condition, the following provides additional nutrient considerations and generalities that may be considered when working to detox and heal.
It is highly suggested that your specific approach be based on testing and consideration given to YOUR unique biochemistry and health factors.
Below are some additional things to look at in order to enhance the healing/detox process.
The Gift of Healing
Copper toxicity perfectly demonstrates the intimate connection between mind and body, between biology and psychology, each influencing the other. Beyond the physical symptoms, we've also seen how excess copper plays a powerful role on emotional/mental health. It can also play a role in our spiritual growth. Excess bio-unavailable copper gets largely stored in our tissues, which also is where an energetic memory of our fears get stored. As copper gets stirred up and mobilized through detox, so too can old belief systems from our parents and childhood, along with traumatic memories and fears. If we're not careful, we then approach healing as if we're driving a car and deciding which way to turn based on what we see in the rear view mirror. We need to be mindful of this influence. We can also consider the view of Traditional Chinese Medicine which says that anger gets stored primarily in the liver. Many experts regard depression as a form of repressed anger. As one cleanses the liver through detox, these long-buried negative emotions of anger, fears, or traumas which we don't want to look at may come to the surface together with the toxic load. Awareness of this possibility can hold a key to continuing the journey versus giving up.
This is an opportunity therefore to examine how past hurts and beliefs may be affecting one's current behaviour, and to let them go so they no longer control and sabotage our lives. Did you inherit non-supportive beliefs from your parents? Are you now acting in a similar way or pattern as one or both your parents? Is there a trauma to deal with? As for fear, it is the greatest enemy that stops us in our evolution in life. Sometimes the greater our spiritual evolutionary 'reward' (awakening), the greater the fear that one must conquer first...and in the context of this topic, copper toxicity may be the catalyst that calls one to that challenge of growth. Forgiveness, of yourself and others, becomes the next step. In this light, a quote from the book 'A Course in Miracles' is well suited: "The world we see merely reflects our own internal frame of reference...Projection makes perception. We look inside first, decide the world we want to see and then project that world outside, making it the truth as we see it. We make it true by our interpretations of what it is we are seeing...We have distorted the world by our twisted defences, and are therefore seeing what is not there. As we learn to recognize our perceptual errors, we also learn to look past them or 'forgive'... Forgiveness means no longer living in the fearful past...Forgiveness is the most powerful healer of all... "
If a calcium shell has been present, that shell may also 'dissolve' over time, helped of course with targeted nutritional support, but it may also dissolve by itself over the years or decades. With the calcium shell gone, one may experience a sense of awakening... a re-opening towards people, feelings, and activities which previously had brought enjoyment prior to the calcium shell forming.
It can be helpful to take a step back and question reactions to people that may have occurred during the phase of copper accumulation and the detox process. If a part of your life became closed off, that may present a clue to where a hurt or fear exists, and thus the most important, albeit hardest, area to examine.
Not to be confused with the way things may have appeared to be normal while under the influence of the calcium shell or other imbalances, but those who put in the effort to truly heal themselves physically and mentally (arduous and long as the process often is), invariably refer to copper toxicity as the catalyst to their greatest spiritual growth and self-awakening.
