I've been taking Iodine
since December 2013 to detox the bad stuff. I was severely hypothyroid; tired and depressed, losing eyebrow hair like mad all the time (toward the middle), and had a receded hairline. I'm a woman by the way, age 26. I've been taking it in conjunction with selenium, zinc, ester C, vitamin D and K2.
About me: I'm entirely gluten free and fluoride free. I have been drinking distilled water since I've started the protocol, at the beginning treated with a water alkalizing stick (google will show you). But recently stopped. Not sure if such a little stick would effect 18 liters of water...
My dosages were as follows...
Lugol's solution 5%: 4-8 drops a day
Selenium: 200 mcg (think it's mcg...)
Ester C: will check tomorrow if needed.
Vitamin D: well here's the thing.... I found out I was also severely deficient in vitamin D. I WAS taking 20-50k IUs a day at one point. Now I am not taking any, as of this week.
Vitamin k2 mk-7: 200 (mcg? I think..! Bah!).
So after the initial supplementation my symptoms improved. No more depression, my hair grew back, everywhere! My eyebrows, my heart hairline, my hair was really thick and healthy. Also experienced healthier skin, increased flexibility, better eye sight, less eye pain (especially when looking at the sun!), and most importantly, no more brain fog!! I honestly don't know how I got through university like that.
About end of March... I got sick. I mean, I didn't think this was possible? Off iodine, or well, to clarify, before i started the protocol, I think I got sick 2-3 times in a 4 month period. It was awful. But, the thing is, I had one glass of fluoridated tap water at a restaurant. And as I was drinking it, I was thinking oh I should put my Iodine
in here, so like the clever girl that I am, I put it in, and prayed it wouldn't hurt me. So the next day begun an interesting 2-3 week journey of sneezing, bleeding nose, dried mucus and basically a personal hell. I had a headache most of the time and wanted to sleep. However I kept my regiment, worked out like usual and carried on my merry way.
Recently, I was using TRESemme shampoo... And thought oh I should do a double rinse so my hair will be shinier! Bad idea. Within 5-7 days my hair begun to fall out. So I stopped using the shampoo (about a week ago).
Fast forward to now, I'm still experiencing TERRIBLE hairloss (50 a day). I mean, I've had this before when I was about 15-16 when I was experimenting with hair color and fried my hair, but my hair has thinned and fallen out so much in the past 3 weeks that I need some feedback, advice, anything? What am I doing wrong? What happened to me. I'm scared.
At first I thought it was the selenium, so I stopped using it. I noticed just recently that I have white blotchy spots on my nails... So it could very well be a little toxicity... I need your help people of Curezone. I'm scared all my hair will fall out... They are like little bald spots, and what it seems to be like additional hair loss around my skull sutures, if that makes sense...
Thank you in advance for your help and advice.
I will try to respond immediately to any questions you may have.
