If you think you have pyroluria you can start your own treatment with high doses of zinc and B6. It does take a month or more to begin to see improvements in the symptoms you are noticing, if it is pyroluria. In the meantime, zinc and B6 are healthy in a lot of ways. Better to take them with a general purpose vitamin (without copper) to get a mix of all the B vitamins and minerals (avoid copper), or at a minimum eat an above average super healthy diet. And avoid drinking water supplied by copper pipes, unless you first flush the system for a few minutes to clear out the water that has been sitting there leaching copper. The running water is too fast to pick up any copper.

Zinc will also lower toxic copper levels. If you have silver fillings or you do indeed have pyroluria, your copper levels are highly suspect of being elevated. (copper doesn't come from amalgams, but toxic accumulation is common in the presence of mercury) Zinc is a copper antagonist, it keeps copper at a balanced healthy ratio, but with pyroluria zinc metabolism is somehow flawed. Copper toxicity looks a lot like mercury toxicity. Zinc will bring copper down in a couple months. For me, 25mg zinc twice a day reduced excess copper levels associated with amalgam illness, and it also stopped the formation of white spots on my fingernails. Which as you probably know is a common telltale sign of pyroluria. I've never sought diagnosis for pyroluria and did not take high dose B6.

I'm glad you brought up this subject, because I never would have thought to take a look at my fingernails today. For the last few months the only nutrition supplements I have been taking are high dose E, medium dose C, and high dose zinc, with every-other-day normal doses of selenium and molybdenum. A couple months ago there were maybe 2 to 3 white spots on each fingernail, with a couple fingernails that had none. Today I see there is one white spot near the tip of the fingernail, as the fingernails have grown, and no new spots anywhere to be found. Coincidence? Don't know.
