Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Adrenal Burnout

One of the most common symptoms of copper toxicity, adrenal burnout, is extreme fatigue, caused by depression of adrenal gland activity. Weak or exhausted adrenal glands are the major cause of hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia is the major cause of the fatigue suffered by a copper-toxic individual.

It is important to recognize the various types of fatigue. For example, a common type of fatigue is experienced when an individual is overworked. However, once that person gets some rest, his fatigue will vanish. Another type of fatigue is when an individual feels drained and feels like sleeping forever. He could sleep twenty hours and still wake up feeling exhausted. The difference between these two types of fatigue is one of simply being tired and the other is being burned out.

Infections: Bacterial and/or Yeast

Burnout cannot be cured by the simple prescription of rest. The adrenal glands are exhausted. They simply fail to respond to stimuli, whether painful or pleasurable. Excessive copper toxicity is the most single common cause of adrenal burnout. Another factor responsible for adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion is chronic stress, such as being the type of person who is a compulsive stress-seeker for various reasons.

A yeast overgrowth frequently ensues from antibiotic therapy. Believe it or not, the patient is often advised that they are suffering from a candida yeast infection and are more often than not advised to stop eating products that contain yeast in any form. The overgrowth of yeast is due to an internal metabolic dysfunction caused by a copper deficiency or bio-unavailability, and while aggravated by, is not due to external causes, such as yeast in foods and food supplements. Copper is a great infection fighter and if it is not available to an individual, infections can and do take over. Candida yeast infections can usually be corrected or improved by increasing copper availability.
