This week, Alexx chats to naturopath Jules Galloway.
Pyrroles disorder is something, it turns out, many of us have. Problem is, we don’t know it and Jules and I connected earlier this year when we were both diagnosed. It has been such a blessing.
Also known as kryptopyrroles or pyrrole disorder, pyroluria is an inherited condition where the body makes too much of a substance known as pyrroles, during the everyday production of haemoglobin. These pyrroles bind to your vitamin B6 and zinc, causing these precious nutrients to become excreted rather than absorbed. Eventually the condition manifests as a long term zinc and B6 deficiency, which can have far-reaching consequences for both physical and mental health.
Jules and I chat about treatment, identifying you’ve got it, symptoms and some of the things you can expect to improve if you do have it. It’s a great show and if you’ve ever experienced any mental health challenges or anxiety or symptoms due to these deficiencies, this is something absolutely worth tuning into.
