Pyroluria, or pyrrole disorder, occurs when many chemicals called pyrroles are produced in the body and attach themselves to nutrients such as zinc and vitamin B-6, preventing them from being used by the body, resulting in severe deficiencies. This is also referred to as haemopyrollactamuria (HPU). This condition is caused by a genetic problem with the metabolism of haemoglobin. It may be triggered as a result of oxidative damage, a poor diet or underlying digestive problems. Elevated stress levels or trauma may also contribute towards this condition.

This disorder is characterised by vitamin B-6 and zinc deficiencies, therefore the symptoms are similar to those experienced by people who are malnourished. People with pyroluria like to stay in their own routines and tend to isolate themselves from others. Insomnia, fatigue, nausea and constipation may also be issues as well as an increased susceptibility to infection. They may have abdominal pain, irregular menstruation or miscarry. A lack of vitamin B-6 has been connected with being unable to remember dreams. Vitamin deficiency can also cause a person to have pale and sun-intolerant skin, hair loss, overcrowded teeth and the habit of biting their fingernails. Pyroluria can cause hormonal imbalance, so as well as physical symptoms, patients may have mental symptoms such as poor memory, aggression, and anxiety and may feel emotionally drained.

Supplements to take
Vitamin B-6, zinc, manganese, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin D-3, probiotic
In addition to proper nutrition, people with pyroluria will need to supplement zinc and vitamin B-6 permanently to avoid a recurrence of symptoms. Periodically, zinc levels can be tested to ensure that copper levels are not being disturbed due to excessive supplementation. Taking probiotics may help to improve microbial balance, therefore helping to correct any digestive problems that may be contributing towards the condition. Exercise is a vital part of the routine, including weight-lifting. Drinking around 2 litres of water per day is essential. Wheat and sugar intake should be limited, while the diet includes a range of healthy fats and a variety of different vegetables. Stress levels will need to be controlled, otherwise this can worsen the condition.
Experiences and case studies
Bioresonance treatment has proven to be effective in treating the causes and symptoms of pyroluria including digestive and behavioural problems. 5 children who were experiencing digestive problems as well as behavioural difficulties no longer had these symptoms after having 4-6 treatments each.
