Over the past week we’ve been discussing the mauve factor (also known as kryptopyrrole) which can be a physical cause for depression and other mental health disorders that runs in families. And let me say that it can be easily treated with nutritional supplements once you know its the cause of your depression or other mental illness.
Now one of the questions I know you’re asking is ‘Where does the Mauve factor come from and why does it cause depression?’ Let me now discuss this issue today.
What is the cause of the Mauve Factor?
Well firstly I want to let you know that it’s not really sure why some people suffer from high levels of the mauve factor and the mental health issues that go along with it. It is known to run in families- so there’s probably a genetic factor.
The Mauve Factor, Depression and Stress.
What is known is that stress can increase the amount of the mauve factor in those with the genetic tendency. The stress can be in the form of emotional stress (job stress, grief, financial stress, fear etc) or it can be physical stress (an accident, partying too hard, not sleeping enough, an infection, the flu etc). It’s known that stress is one of the major risk factors for mental health illness including depression. It’s possible that in many people the stress leads to high levels of the Mauve factor.
So How Does the Mauve Factor Lead to Depression?
The Mauve factor is a chemical that is known to be toxic to the brain and nervous system. This is one reason people can experience depression, anxiety and other psychological symptoms if the mauve factor is in high levels.
Another reason the Mauve Factor can cause depression is because it ’steels’ important vitamin and minerals from the body. The mauve factor binds to zinc and vitamin B6. When the mauve factor leaves the body in the urine, it takes the zinc and vitamin B6 with it. The result is vitamin B6 and zinc deficiencies.
The Brain Needs Zinc and Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 and zinc are needed to make serotonin and other neurotransmitters in the brain. When there is a zinc and vitamin B6 deficiency (like when someone has high mauve levels), the brain cannot function properly. The way to treat the Mauve Factor is to take high doses of zinc and vitamin B6 supplements. It’s been shown that with these nutrients, that many people’s depression (who have the Mauve Factor) can lift in 1 week! I’ve seen it with my own eyes, and for some this is a ‘miracle’ cure. The reason is because it’s actually treating, or compensating for, the real cause of their depression.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the Mauve Factor and how to test for it, and the best doses of supplements to treat it, you can get all of the practical information, and the scientific evidence (for your doctor) by getting a copy of my recent book “Breaking Free: Exposing the biochemical causes of depression”.
Alternatively, if you’d like to find out about other physical causes of depression, that can be treated naturally, get a copy of my free depression report by visiting www.breakingfreefromdepression.com/free-report.
Hope this information helps bring freedom to you.
All the best.
