Understanding the energetics of minerals and metals is at the core to getting a deeper understanding of mineral balancing.
This branches into the world of metaphysics and alchemy.
The reason we have a world plagued with copper toxicity is associated with the planet Venus, which is the planet of love, beauty, art, music, and relationships.
To grasp this relationship between copper and Venus, let's look at Botticelli's famous renaissance painting Birth of Venus.
First, the painting uses copper pigments to bring out the green/blue hue, which emanates from copper chloride and sulfur.
This is the same color you get when it is vaporized or when copper filings are sprinkled over a flame.
The skin of Venus is a bronze hue and her hair is copper colored.
The scallop shell on which Venus is standing in this painting is a sea creature that uses copper for respiration as opposed to iron.
The story of this painting comes from the island of Cyprus–the island of copper, corn, and flowers.
Copper sulfate salts used to be called cuprous for which copper and Cyprus share the same root word.
The Venus principle has everything to do with being a woman, and no coincidence that women have about 20% more copper in their serum than men do.
To contrast this, men have 1/3 more iron in their serum than women do–reflecting the dialect of the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
The mineral copper belongs to Venus and iron belongs to Mars.
These minerals are strongly linked to sex.
The most feminine hormone in the body is estrogen–and copper has everything to do with estrogen and fertility.
Women on birth control have higher levels of copper because the pill keeps copper levels high by emulating the condition of pregnancy and shuts off the luteal phase of progesterone so that the woman will not be able to conceive.
This also creates a wave of mineral imbalances which show up on a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.
The pill throws off monthly rhythms by keeping estrogen high like a woman in her 9th month of pregnancy–along with it comes the consequences of high copper which are devastating to human health.
Even during pregnancy, copper serum almost doubles its normal levels.
When it does not come down to baseline shortly after delivery, it leads to postpartum depression, anxiety, and other copper related symptoms.
The copper 7 coil was also the most effective intrauterine birth control device on the market because the copper ions cause a biological action inside the uterus to prevent implantation of the fertilized ovum.
It is very effective in preventing pregnancy, however the it raises copper levels so high that it causes the following chronic symptoms:
- Hair loss
- Attention deficit disorder
- Candida overgrowth
- Male infertility
- Migraine Headaches
- Chronic infections
- Racing thoughts
- Neuralgia (nerve pain)
- Bipolar (Manic Depression)
