Pyrrole disorder is a severe oxidative overload and a deficit in antioxidant protection abilities. This is known as a stress disorder. The brain is in need of antioxidant protection in these individuals.
The dominant chemical imbalance here is elevated pyrrole levels. It is shown that people who have this disorder have a presence of excessive pyrrole levels in their blood and urine.
Mental breakdowns can happen for these people when they are under a lot of stress. It is characterized by extreme levels of anxiety and rapid mood swings. It may sometimes include auditory hallucinations and delusional thinking. The neurotransmitters and brain activity that are affected are low glutamate and low GABA, and/or low serotonin and dopamine.
Most people with pyrrole disorder will have some of these symptoms and traits:
Severe mood swings
Inability to cope with stress
No dream recall
Sunburn easily / don’t tan well
Sensitivity to bright lights & noises
Females may have missed periods
People with pyrrole disorder suffer from deficiencies of both vitamin B6 and the mineral Zinc.
These deficiencies may be genetic in nature and supplementation is needed to re-balance the condition.
Nutrient therapy with B6 and Zinc in high doses (many times the RDA) is needed to re-balance people with this disorder. With nutrient therapy normalization of B6 and Zinc will occur.
Other nutrients that may help with this mental health condition and with oxidative stress are vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin A. As well as selenium and glutathione.
You may see a noticeable improvement within a few days. This improvement will continue for up to 6 weeks.
If one of your symptoms includes nausea in the morning, you may want to have your nutrients in the afternoon.
Alternatively, you can get tested for your pyrrole status with a nutritionist today at mytelemedicine. You will want to order a pyrrole test. I recommend also getting a histamine panel and CBC test as well to cover your bases.
