[17:02] How Dana’s son is doing today
“In this week’s episode, we are going to talk about one of the most common underlying stressors affecting children with ADHD, and that is kryptopyrrole.”
“My son used to have explosive anger, anxiety, poor tolerance to emotional stress, irritability. And I could go on and on. All of these symptoms are related to something called Pyrroles.”
“People with pyroluria have been found to have exceptionally low levels of both vitamin B6 and zinc.”
“Pyroluria is commonly linked to ADHD, autism, dyslexia, anxiety, depression, Down’s Syndrome, schizophrenia, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, and even alcoholism.”
“In extreme cases of pyroluria, there are severe mood swings and even violent behavior.”
“Some people with mild to moderate pyroluria can have a quick improvement within a few weeks of increasing zinc and vitamin B6. But others with more severe pyroluria it can take upwards of 3 – 12 months to balance those levels.”
“The number one thing contributing to our children’s ADHD symptoms is inflammation.”
“The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks chronic inflammatory diseases as the greatest threat to human health, and these diseases are being driven by inflammation in the body.”
“Pyroluria may contribute to some of our children’s ADHD symptoms. If it is at play, it results in a dramatic deficiency of zinc and vitamin B6. It can cause a wide range of emotional and other symptoms.”
