Why Increased Ceruloplasmin Levels Are Associated With Chronic Illnesses

What is ceruloplasmin?

Ceruloplasmin is a major copper-carrying protein in the blood which carries more than 95% of the total copper in healthy human plasma and also plays a role in iron metabolism.

Lower-than-normal ceruloplasmin levels correlate with copper deficiency, while greater-than-normal ceruloplasmin levels may indicate or be noticed in patients with copper toxicity, zinc deficiency, chronic inflammation, Alzheimer’s disease, Schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, severe mood swings, and more. 

Your adrenals and brain need to be functioning properly to make DHEA, which is the longevity hormone that will send the signal to the liver to make ceruloplasmin.

The pathway toward making DHEA can be compromised due to xenoestrogens, nutrient deficiencies, channelopathies, cation dysfunction, genetics, poor digestion and assimilation, and other factors.

For us to determine how well your adrenals are operating, we will first look at the Sodium and Potassium ratios on your Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.

Our number one priority would be to detect and address detriments hindering the production of DHEA

There is no single protocol to put into place that will work the same way for everybody.

Each case will be different with various techniques and protocols put into place.

After careful analysis of the biochemistry and psychology of a patient, a custom care plan will be created using various tests, strategies, and holistic protocols.

We typically will run a hormone panel, GI panel, and a food sensitivity test as well as locate the markers of inflammation in your body.

A Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis will be taken every (3) months to make the necessary adjustments and monitor progress.

Our New Patient Intake Form is very detailed as it is important for us to know your medical history because certain drugs and factors can influence a lab test.
