Poor Digestion and The Pyroluria Connection

Many people believe that Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder are a genetic, life long condition, that can only be controlled with supplementation. This may be the case for some sufferers, but for most, lifestyle factors such as; stress, an unhealthy diet, nutritional deficiencies and poor digestion cause Pyroluria and exacerbate many of the symptoms. [1]

Poor digestion can be identified as an array of symptoms including constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, smelly or excessive gas, abdominal pain or a different coloured stool other than brown. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, colitis and Crohn's disease are conditions that contribute to and cause poor digestion. 

An unhealthy digestive system leads to; intestinal inflammation, Dysbiosis, malabsorption and Leaky Gut Syndrome all of which contribute to increasing the chemical, hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one (HPL), which causes the excessive excretion of zinc and vitamin B6. [1] HPL is the chemical measured in a Pyroluria Test and elevated levels confirm the presence of Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder. 

Improve Digestive Health and Reverse Pyroluria

The first step in healing and improving digestive health is to change your diet and eat a greater array of plant-based foods. Less emphasis should be placed on the man-made, sugar-ladened, white flour, preservative rich-foods.

Prebiotic Fibres - How They Supercharge Health

by Greg Newson 0 Comments

Prebiotic fibres are special fibres found in plant-based foods that can be broken down in the intestinal tract to short-chained fatty acids. These fatty acids are the only fuel supply that feeds the millions of beneficial gut bacteria, plus are the major food source for the cells that make up the intestinal wall. Low levels of prebiotic fibres = low short-chained fatty acids, which leads to sickness, immune suppression, poor health and the growth of abnormal cells within the colon.
