When it comes to the effects of copper, we can't just think of how the mineral reacts in isolation, we need to consider the chain reaction that copper accumulation causes to the broader mineral pattern and our various body systems. With this way of looking at health, and as shown in this graphic below, we gain better understanding of some of the many ways copper toxicity affects the mind and emotions. There remains a major disconnect between the fields of psychology and nutrition, leaving many people affected by mineral imbalance "wondering" if there could be a connection to their symptoms. It is not a mystery. There has been decades of research in this field, and successful mineral-based treatment protocols have been developed for various mental health issues.
