Re: Im new at this-started and got real sick 2 days later *edit*
Hi Trysten, for what reason are you supplementing iodine?
*edit* It's my bed-time so I'm going to just go ahead and answer some questions...
It seems that a lot of "detox" is felt the first week or so. That was the case with me, and many others. Are you salt loading? Please look over the FAQs, if you haven't already, for info on both salt loading and companion nutrients.
I wouldn't start Iodine
while in the midst of a parasite
cleanse, I think your body has enough to deal with at this time. Some of those cleanses can have a negative effect on your friendly microflora...in which case the Iodine
WILL cause gastrointestinal upset.
I think that you should stop, finish your cleanse, give your body a rest, rebuild your friendly microorganisms.
As far as the sore throat, a lot of people here have reported transient sore throat, so, it could be a sign...do a search on the term "sore throat" within this forum.
And then, if you wish, do this right. Start salt-loading BEFORE supplementation, at least 3 days, preferably a week or more. See salt-loading FAQ for more info on this.
Make sure you take companion supplements.
I've had a few instances of "flu"-like symptoms. Salt load, if that doesn't help, coffee enema, works every time.
And I AM curious as to your reasons for supplementation. A cursory look at your posting history shows many posts to Acne
support. Did you know that one of the symptoms of bromide detox is pimples? Some of us get it worse than others, some, not at all...you might want to reconsider a protocol which could exacerbate something you are trying to rectify...depending on your reasons, of course...
hope this helps, a little. & I hope you feel better soon! :)
