I started Iodoral in June. I began at 50 mg. and went up from there to 100 mg. pretty quickly. I noticed my periods being noticeably better from the first period. There was a bit less pain and cramping, but they were still 10 days long. It wasn't until I started Trapper's SSKI & Magnacent a couple of months ago that I noticed the most difference. He suggested I take 7 drops (however much that is?)of each so that is what I did. The first period I had after starting his combo my period shortened to 5 days, lots less blood & clotting, cramping & backache disappeared. I could still feel a bit of pain when passing clots. Not long ago Wombat suggested I start taking cod liver oil and after this last period I'm sticking with it also. I have only taken 2 Carlson's capsules a day and wow. My period was only perfect. I honestly had no pain what so ever with this last one, not even with the 2 small clots I had. It just keeps getting better and better. I'm taking all the recommended comp supplements with Iodine and still do salt pushes when I feel a little off from bromine detox.
