Cause and cure for depression that most Doctors do not know about

Calabasas 19 year old teenager, Allie Odette, learns that her depression was actually caused by an imbalance of a trace mineral in her body.

When Instagram influencer enchanting_odette also known as Allie Odette was 3 years old her parents took her to get ears pierced and right after they noticed a skin rash. Little did she know that was the beginning of her life with Copper Toxicity. She is now urging others to get checked for this common but not well-known illness.

“I have been to numerous doctors over the years for my depression and anxiety and none of the medications helped me” said Allie Odette. “Now If someone would have told me to fix my awful, all consuming depression with vitamins, I would have probably put them on my hate you list, but after years of multiple different types of medications for depression, and counseling that did absolutely nothing for me, I was willing to try and at least look into this thing called Copper Toxicity”.

When too much copper is in you it becomes toxic. Some people have it since birth from genetics and many women get it from birth control as widespread use of oral contraceptives containing estrogen and copper IUD creates a copper imbalance in the body. Copper Toxicity can cause major depression, anxiety, insomnia, skin sensitivity to cheap metals, brain fog, episodes of rage, emotional numbing, cold hands and feet, candida, grinding teeth while sleeping, paranoia, racing thoughts, ADHD, panic attacks, and eating disorders to name a few of the symptoms.

According to Dr William Walsh of the Walsh Research Institute, copper overload is one of the most common biochemical imbalances found in brain related disorders. “In most persons, blood copper levels are kept in a narrow range through the action of metallothionein, ceruloplasmin, as well as other proteins. Unfortunately, many persons have a genetic inability to regulate copper levels and a serious copper overload can result.” States William Walsh, PhD.

After years of research of trying to find what was wrong with her, Allie found a book on Copper Toxicity called Nutrient Power – Heal your Biochemistry and Heal your Brain by Dr. William J. Walsh. This books explained how by correcting your mineral imbalances you can actually heal your brain, instead of just treating the symptoms as most medications do. The first step was to get tested for copper. However it is very important to get the right kind of testing done. Sadly, most doctors she went to did the typical test for copper and told her “your copper is fine”. Unfortunately, they did not do the correct tests. It is very important to find a Doctor that specializes in copper overload and does the correct testing. “I found and went to a medical clinic called Mensah Medical Clinic that specializes in copper toxicity for my testing. When I was first tested correctly my copper was Mensah Medical Clinic.found to be extremely high” Allie said.

After more additional specific testing, the doctors at Mensah Medical tailored a vitamin protocol that would help her with her specific aliments. “Our physical and mental health needs the proper balance of critical brain chemicals. This is why correcting biochemical imbalances is key to optimal health and wellness” according to Dr. Mensah of the

Other things that can help detox your copper are dry saunas, coffee enemas, and avoiding copper rich foods as well as junk food.

She also found that drinking celery juice first thing in the morning 30 minutes before food helped alleviate some of her symptoms as well.

As she went through her detoxing from copper she said it actually made her symptoms worse before they got better. A lot of people give up on the copper detox because of this. However, you will eventually start to see your copper levels decrease if you stick to the protocol. Copper Toxicity does not go away on its own and actually gets worse as times goes on.

While Allie still has a ways to go before she is completely detoxed from copper, she hopes telling her story now helps others who may feel helpless and giving up some new hope on curing their depression and anxiety.

From Depression to the Desert Race – How one girl healed then took the step to uncover mental health in others

Jodie is running 6 marathons in 6 days for young people’s mental health on April 5th, 2019 in the Marathon Des Sables.

On 24th December 2015, Jodie woke up not knowing how she was going to manage another day. Mentally and physically paralysed by depression, Jodie attempted to take her own life with an overdose. “I didn’t want to die but I didn’t know how to live,” says current PhD researcher Jodie. “I hit rock bottom”

North London mental health charity IHEART (Innate Health Education and Resilience Training) helped Jodie rediscover her mental health. “Thankfully I received the best support from IHEART and now I am raising money to help other young people benefit from the unique IHEART curriculum, which is being rolled out in schools.”
Three years on, Jodie is paying it forward, raising funds for IHEART, by running the toughest foot race in the world- a 250km run across the Sahara Desert – The Marathon des Sable.

IHEART Founder and Head of Education, Terry Rubenstein, is unbelievably supportive of Jodie’s courage and commitment “I have run one marathon. It was incredible but brutal. Jodie is running the equivalent of 6 marathons in 6 days. She is a warrior,” says Terry, author of Exquisite Mind and The Peach who Thought She Had to Be a Coconut. “She has her own powerful story of mental suffering and healing – Now she wants to help others ….”

In 14 months, IHEART has impacted 1500 young people, within 33 schools, trained nearly 200 educators across Europe, South Africa, and the USA. Adds Terry, “Jodie and her incredible efforts will allow IHEART to reach thousands more children in the coming year. But we need to reach many, many more. Please help us to help our kids.”

The worrying statistics speak for themselves

• 50 % of mental health problems are established by age 14, and 75% by age 24.
• 25% of 14-year-old girls across the UK are clinically depressed
• 1 in 15 adults in England is estimated to have made a suicide attempt in their life.

We need your help in sharing Jodie’s story to raise awareness for IHEARTs vital work instilling mental health within young people.

“Our children are suffering and in order to solve this problem, the IHEART curriculum shows young people how change can only ever come from the inside-out.” Jodie, 2018.
