Iron Toxicity Post #7: All manner of pathogens – fungal, viral, mycotoxin etc., MUST have iron to flourish and grow!

(Formerly #1)

It has taken me much of 2015 to fully process the many stellar studies reviewed on the toxicity of iron:

“Health-e-Iron: prevention is the cure”


Brace yourself! You will not enjoy what these articles has to say:

All manner of pathogens, bacterial, fungal, viral, mycotoxin, etc. must have iron to flourish and grow.

And where do they find that iron?

It is largely from the iron stored in our ferritin.

Please do the following:

  1. Rethink how ferritin loading strategy is so radically flawed and is the source of iron essential for these pathogens, bacterial, fungal, viral, mycotoxin, etc., Do wonder at how many people are dealing with candida, mold, viral issues etc.
  2. Please get a comprehensive blood test that measures all facets of iron, including your ceruloplasmin (Cp) status. https://therootcauseprotocol.com/order-lab-tests/

While this highlighted article is “silent” on Cp’s central role in iron management, I believe I have presented compelling evidence and research the past few weeks that should overcome even the greatest of skeptics. Cp makes copper bioavailable, and manages every facet of iron metabolism.

Why does Mg Man keep obsessing over iron?

Iron-induced oxidative stress! It increases our Magnesium Burn Rate (MBR). One of magnesium’s (Mg) greatest gifts is to change the structure of key chemicals so that they work optimally inside our bodies and inside our cells. It does this for adenosine triphosphate (ATP), Ceruloplasmin (Cp), and among others!  There are 3,571 proteins that must have magnesium to work properly.

We have keen insight on how we keep losing our Mg, and we now know that to optimize the function of our ceruloplasmin, our Mg had best be robust!

Thank you for taking the time to plow through this material. It is neither an easy read, nor a pleasant message but I firmly believe it extends our understanding of the truth of our physiology and pathophysiology.

We have much to discuss and much to do to correct our thinking and to correct the notable metal (low copper < > high iron) imbalances that are the very root of what ails us.

A votre sante!
