Copper Toxicity and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
High levels of copper and other mineral imbalances result in on going lethargy, exhaustion or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
“By balancing the minerals, you can increase your ability to release energy from foods. And you can increase your cell’s ability to utilize that food energy to produce human energy.”

Mineral Balances and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
The balance between the minerals or sodium and magnesium indicates the strength or insufficiency of the adrenal glands. When the adrenals are activated, sodium will increase. Constant stimulation by ongoing exposure to either severe short term or chronic long term stress will exhaust the adrenal glands and alter the body’s ability to maintain optimal energy balance.
Theses are the key mineral imbalances related to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS):
- High sodium and potassium levels, especially relative to calcium and magnesium, indicates high adrenal activity.
- A low sodium level which indicates exhausted adrenals and chronic fatigue.
- High levels of bio-unavailable copper which will also exhaust the adrenals.
- Copper also plays an important function in those with chronic fatigue due to copper’s role in ATP energy production.
- Once the exhausted adrenals, the body will constantly feel fatigued even with adequate sleep which will result in other physical and psychological conditions.
- Improving adrenal function is a key focus of mineral balancing for improved stamina, energy and outlook on life.
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) symptoms can be support with mineral balancing.
