I've started supplementing with copper and have noticed a huge benefit. I started supplementing with iodine once a week. I ate solid for two days after starting it but now seems to have leveled off. My weight is around 6 lbs higher now than it has been. Only a little of that is from eating and my guess is that the bacteria and yeast in my GI tract that have metallothionein have sequestered the copper. I think they'll sequestor aluminum if no copper is present.
Eating is the key because when we eat correctly, it not only gives us the nutrients that we are deficient of but also the proper assortment of bacteria for our GI tracts. This allows our methylation cycles to function better which gives us more T cells, more glutithione, and more products to fight oxidative stress. Eating correctly is difficult, not because of a lack of will power, but because of a lack of the correct foods. Raw spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, nuts, seeds, fruit, brussel sprouts, oatmeal, souces of daily iodine and copper, it's hard to find these things every day with our lifestyles. I did not include any meat on this list and meat consumption (IMO) should be variable depending on activity level. If you are physically active, eat a small portion of meat once that day. If you are not active, meat should be limited to once or twice a week depending on how the person responds to it. As a professional hunter, it pains me to say that but it is what is best IMO.
