Question

Is this an oversimplification?

Raise your ceruloplasmin and everything else will fall into place.

  1. Seems to be. In the last 3mths, my cp came up one from 29-30, but my iron, ferritin, & copper came up significantly also. 🙁

  2. Teri, I have fallen off the magnesium wagon but hopped back on today. I don't even know what Ceruloplasmin is, I must research what you are talking about.

  3. That is my conclusion also….concentrate on ceruloplasmin.

  4. For me it would be an oversimplification – because my Cp is already at 32 so if you looked at just that you would think great but it wasn't, for me its inflammation so it needs to come down to go up, just to muddy up the waters there for you 😉

  5. I think it's an oversimplification and a mistake to say that one thing [any one thing] is the most important factor or the only factor that causes all health issues in every person and therefore is the one thing that needs to be improved in order to improve overall health in everybody.

    It seems like we want to have some kind of a simple, unifying theory of health and health problems but I don't think that's the way health works.

    And it also seem like in order to state strongly that something is important we tend to want to say that it's the only thing that's important, the only thing that matters and I think that's a big mistake too. There are a lot of things that can go wrong with health and a lot of things that matter.

  6. I think for many it's not an oversimplification. Ultimately a healthy ceruloplasmin level means proper iron regulation, low oxidative stress, and it means a HEALTHY LIVER. The liver is such an important organ, it affects so much. So I think it's fine to view optimal ceruloplasmin level as a #1 health goal, in part because you need to do so much to make it happen from a nutritional perspective.

    I also think folks perhaps pay too much attention to serum Cu/Zn levels. These levels will fluctuate. These levels are best viewed over the long term (say, over the course of a year). HTMA might be a better way to gauge these mineral levels in the body.

  7. For many it might not be an oversimplification but oversimplifications and over generalizations (and overstating of the relative importance) can be really harmful to the people for whom the oversimplification is not true. That's the problem.

  8. It's an oversimplification in that it doesn't work for every body. For some people, fixing ceruloplasmin levels is the final piece that allows everything else to fall into place. For other individuals, there's other stuff going on, and either ceruloplasmin levels aren't part of the problem at all, or they're only PART of the problem, and other things need to be adjusted as well.

  9. You must lower excess unbound iron and keep it low, to get ceruloplasmin and copper to do their thing
