The Overlooked Triggers Causing Pyroluria

Triggers Causing Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder

"How did I get Pyroluria?" or "What causes Pyrrole Disorder?" are some of the questions I commonly hear when people are diagnosed with Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder. 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 and Pyrrole Disorder I have found that nearly 65% of patients suffer from ‘Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder’ and not the Genetic form. 

Differences Between Genetic and Lifestyle Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder?

Genetic Pyroluria is caused by a fault in the genes and is passed down from one generation to the next. Whereas, Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria is caused by a variety of lifestyle factors and underlying health conditions. These factors and conditions can dramatically worsen many of the symptoms afflicting sufferers of both the Genetic and Lifestyle forms of Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder. So regardless of what type of Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder someone is suffering from it is of vital important to treat and correct some or all of the potential factors that worsen Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder.

Common Causes Of Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder

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

We have found that 100% of Pyroluria sufferers, regardless of whether they have Genetic or Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder, 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 or Pyrrole Disorder, test negative or borderline on subsequent tests once these underlying causes have been addressed.

Treating the underlying causes of Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder 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. Treating the underlying causes provides the best long term treatment strategy for both Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder.

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.
