Pyroluria

From Wkipedia.org

'Pyroluria (or malvaria from the term mauve factor in the urine) involves hypothetical excessive levels of pyrroles in the body resulting from improper hemoglobin synthesis. Carl Pfeiffer believed that pyroluria is a form of schizophrenic porphyria, similar to acute intermittent porphyria where both pyrroles and porphyrins are excreted in the human urine to an excessive degree and orthomolecular psychiatrists have alleged that pyroluria is related to diagnoses of ADHD, alcoholism, autism, depression, down syndrome, manic-depression, schizophrenia, celiac disease, epilepsy, and psychosis...'

Are you addicted to sleeping pills-antidepressants-substances?

Food or various substances that we feel very difficult, nearly impossible, to refuse are often responsible for replacing our natural neurotransmitters whose levels happen to be low in our brain for various reasons. They take advantage of the difficult situation! When we eat or use them, while we know it is not very wise on our part, we feel better, which makes the decision to stop more difficult.

The thyroid gland is a wonderful regulator that controls the rate of our metabolism and works like the accelerator in a car.

Food intolerances

“What is food for one person may be poison for another.”

Lucretius, 75 B.C.

 

 Although less than 2% of the population suffers from food allergies, it is estimated that more than 20% suffer from food intolerances.

Food allergies are immediate and obvious, like an allergy to peanuts, to shellfish, to eggs, and the reactions may be harsh. Some of the symptoms may be sneezing, swelling, rashes, skin irritation, weakness, and they can vary widely in severity. Usually in this type of allergies the immune system produces IgE antibodies to defend itself against the enemy, which in this case is food or some ingredients; this is how unwanted symptoms are created.

Food intolerance is characterized by a delayed reaction; symptoms may occur after hours or days of eating the food. For example, if our body lacks some enzymes such as lactose we experience adverse symptoms when drinking milk or consuming dairy. Other symptoms of lactose intolerance may be bloating, severe drowsiness and confusion. We also may have no physical symptoms at all and then the situation is more complicated; since symptoms may appear up to three days after eating the food, we can not be sure which food caused the intolerance.

Gastroesophageal reflux

Reflux can be painful, irregular and uncoordinated contractions of the esophagus, i.e. the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. The esophagus normally pulsates in coordination, in order to carry the food in the stomach. There are two types of reflux: in the first one, contractions are irregular and uncoordinated; the muscles of the esophagus tighten leaving the food there; in the other type the contractions and clenching are very strong and painful but the food enters the stomach. The two types may coexist. Symptoms may include difficulty swallowing food and liquids, reflective chest, neck and hand pains. Also, these symptoms may be due to GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) or achalasia, a neurological disease. Panic attacks can cause similar symptoms.
