A quiet, hidden and often ignored condition is that of pyphoria.
Pyphoria is a liver and blood disease where the heme molecule is either depleted or damaged.It is often undiagnosed and fits into the reportedly rare category when, in fact it quietly presents as common conditions and so this lends itself to possible ineffective treatments.
While the heme molecule is familiar to you as hemoglobin the carrier of oxygen, the heme molecule is also part of the structure of an enzyme Cytochrome P450 which is found throughout the body cells and in larger quantities in the liver.
If you have a problem with CYP450 you may present with a variety of problems ranging from depression, allergies, anemia, attention deficit. You may become angry after drinking coffee, alcohol and generally not cope well with stress. you may have a skin reaction as your liver and kidneys struggle with toxic overload.You may struggle with your weight as hormones and toxins are recycled.
A diet devoid of caffeine, alcohol, gluten, preservative will help to reduce the toxic overload that someone with porphyria is sensitive.
