The copper IUD is promoted as a safe alternative to hormonal birth control. But this couldn’t be further from the truth!
While many women can safely use a copper IUD, some women develop severe physical and mental health issues after the insertion of a copper IUD.
This occurs because many women have difficulty metabolizing copper, and the extra copper absorbed from a copper IUD can cause severe side effects.
Someone women react to the excess copper within days of insertion, while others do fine for several years until copper toxicity symptoms develop. Doctors often dismiss any relationship between your symptoms and the copper IUD, even when it is absolutely obvious that the copper IUD is the cause!
Symptoms of copper toxicity:
– migraine headaches, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, hair loss, anger/rage, brain fog, spaciness, paranoia, fatigue, yeast infections, and more.
– other symptoms are insomnia or trouble sleeping, racing thoughts, heart palpitations, and menstrual problems. An aversion to red meat has also been reported.
If you have any of these symptoms, I suggest having the IUD removed immediately. This will reduce many of your symptoms.
However, a complete nutritional balancing program is usually needed to remove the excess copper and improve copper metabolism. You can learn more about this approach here: https://brezinskinutrition.com/hair-analysis-htma/
It is possible to have many of these symptoms without ever having a copper IUD. The birth control pill can also cause accumulation of copper in the body (for a different reason than the copper IUD). Nutritional imbalances, contaminated drinking water, certain medications, and vegetarian diets can also lead to copper overload symptoms.
