This is a thread that I posted on a alternative hair loss website. I'd love to see your opinion on it. Thanks.
My original experience with Iodine was great but as time goes on it seems to be getting less effective for me. I used to get a energy rush and zero scalp inflammation when taking only one drop of Iodine. Now it seems no matter what amount I take it won't produce the same results. If anything my situation has got worse, especially the inflammation and hair loss. Also, I've been waking up feeling with flu type symptoms every morning for the last few weeks.
Why has Iodine's effects worn off?.
I'm not salt loading, does this mean that I'm not excreting the halides?. Should I expect to make no progress without adding something to deal with heavy metals?. Is it heavy metals that are causing my inflammation?. How long does it usually take to completely detox?.
One thing I don't understand is how Thyroid disorders cause hair loss via DHT. What is the connection between the Thyroid and DHT. I know I probably won't get an answer for this.
Another problem I had, was bad reactions with my heart due to Iodine. A few nights ago I had extreme uncomfortable heart where it seems like it might be beating too slowly and I also had trouble breathing. I felt seconds away from fainting, my arms went numb. I had to keep tapping my chest and breathing heavily for about 2 hours. Quite scary.
