I've read it's the other way around; that copper supports estrogen production.
Easiest way to understand this would be having serum copper and plasma zinc tested.If serum copper is close to top of range and if zinc is at the bottom of the range than you might have zinc deficiency.
I did some reading about the copper/estrogen relationship a while ago, but remember stuff all of it, I'm afraid. Other than that estrogen therapy increases ceruloplasmin, and that repeat miscarriages are seen in WD.
Mineral balancing is a tricky thing. This from a member here:
I found Dr. Wilson's site and info extremely confusing, and I also read a lot of negative reviews from people who felt worse after his protocols and just stopped them. The thing that I don't like about Dr. Wilson is that he doesn't recognized OVERMETHYLATION at all, he only treats people for undermethylation.
The problem with this is that high copper levels very often correlate with overmethylation. I think Dr. William Walsh at the Walsh Research Institute is a way better source of information on this topic, as well as Dr. Mensah. They both discuss the issue at length and make the connections with epigenetic factors. I thought this article was really great too: http://www.courtneysnydermd.com/blog/copper-overload-too-much-of-a-good-thing3
