This is not a debate forum. Some people need less iodine/and/or/iodide and some people need more than others. It depends on the individual. The Iodine
researchers also stated that some need more because of damaged receptor sites. I can only conclude that I MAY have damaged receptor sites. And please note that I had stated that I am temporarily
taking that much potassium Iodide
daily because it is the safer form in which to do this.
My legs have had edema all summer long. I have been exhausted, and could hardly stay awake, all summer long. I have not been able to lose weight. No energy. I feel SO much better now. My daughter is tickled because I have actually started singing again. I haven't been able to do that for quite some time, either.
When I was inspired to take that much Iodide
it was after being reminded that the old medical protocol for a fungal problem called spirotrichosis was to gradually work UP TO 3 to 6 grams of potassium Iodide daily for up to a 3 to 6 month period of time
. Now, of course, the medical community has replaced Potassium Iodide
with some drug.
IOW, I knew (through the medical community itself before drugs became so financially beneficial for doctors), that what I am doing is safe. (Not to mention Trapper himself took more than what I'm presently taking for a period of time, and he's still healthy and with us here on the forum.)
I do not intend to take this much Potassium Iodide
forever. But my body still obviously has some issues. I have also noticed that the pain in my underarm lymph nodes (which returned fairly recently) has gone, and I now have a bm within 30 minutes of eating a meal - with no need of taking extra fiber nor magnesium. The swelling in my eyelids is also 90% gone, and my sinuses are opening once again.
Even though I have been taking about 6-12 drops of SSKI
daily, it obviously just wasn't enough - for ME.
This is a Godsend for me.
Good health to you.
