The Overlooked Triggers Causing Pyroluria

The Overlooked Triggers Causing Pyroluria

A commonly asked questions that I hear after "How did I get Pyroluria?" is "What causes Pyroluria?" Many practitioners believe that Pyroluria is caused by genetic factors and this may be true to a degree. However, with over 10 years of clinical experience in treating Pyroluria I have found that nearly 65% of patients suffer from ‘Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria’ and not the Genetic form. 

The Difference Between Genetic and Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria?

Genetic Pyroluria is caused by a fault in the genes and is passed down from one generation to the next. Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria is caused by a variety of lifestyle factors and underlying health conditions.

Common Causes Of Pyroluria

Chemical exposure Inflammation
Drugs Insufficient Liver Detoxification
Dysbiosis Leaky Gut Syndrome
Excessive Alcohol Nutritional Deficiencies
Food Allergies Oxidative Stress
Heavy Metal Toxicity Poor Dietary Habits
Inadequate Digestive Function Stress

Interestingly, we find that 100% of Pyroluria sufferers, regardless of whether they have Genetic or Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria, show dramatic improvements in their symptoms when they take the necessary steps to rectify the underlying causes. In many cases people who initially tested positive for Pyroluria, test negative or borderline on subsequent tests once these underlying causes have been addressed.

Treating the underlying causes of Pyroluria is a more comprehensive strategy that treats the body as a whole, rather than taking the long term nutritional supplementation approach. Certainly nutritional supplements are essential in the early stages of any Pyroluria treatment plan, as they are required to rectify any underlying nutritional deficiencies. However, the down side with long term supplementation, besides the expense, is that they can cause imbalances with other nutrients, which can lead to other types of diseases or health conditions.

Pyroluria and Candida

by Greg Newson

Candida (a fungal yeast overgrowth) and Pyroluria (an inability to utilize zinc, vitamin B6 and biotin) are two conditions that may seem worlds apart. But for a portion of people suffering from Pyroluria they are intrinsically linked. Whilst Candida is present, there will never be a complete resolution from Pyroluria.
