Sounds like you are doing great!!!
Admittedly it is a sucky great. And when you are all alone doing this kind of thing it can be hard not to wonder if you are creating a sucky Bad experience for yourself!
And I totally get your concerns...it took me a long time to get started, and then I bailed about 2-3months in because I was so cold and felt like I was going to get sick...so i stopped and got into something else for 15 months or so because I was struggling getting good info to support myself....I think I didn't ask enough questions here and I went away. And then came back to I and here and dug in and it makes sense so I won't stop now.
GG's post was great and she covered most of the bases, but I know how important it can be to hear from more real people that you are definitely not poisoning yourself!!!!!
I have been on I for 2 years. 100-200+mg/day. I am a difficult case or so it seems so I am not out of the woods yet, but I have been sick for years. I got off of hydrocortisone 1 year ago, so healing does happen!
My detox sucked the first several months or so. I often tell the story of one morning when i had pretty severe anxiety after taking my Iodine and I couldn't think straight and do anything useful and then I took my salt water and within an hour I felt a wave go through me and whoosh, the anxiety was gone.....for that day anyway!!!
How much salt/day do you do? 1 tspx3?
if you get edema or cramping from the salt you will need to add potassium chloride to the Sea Salt
you could possibly try upping your vitamin C
and you might try some herbal cleanses for: liver, kidneys, colon, parasites......just to make sure detox is working well.
I often need to do coffee enemas/colonics to help things move out.
Upping your dosage is a great suggestion. Sometimes detox is easier with more. And sometimes people find taking their Iodine two or three times/day helps too.
when I have my doubts I rewatch the Brownstein and Flechas videos ....those always lift up my spirits and remind we why I doing this crazy Iodine thing!
I will post my list of links in a new thread.
keep asking questions and checking in and sharing and asking for support. That is what we are here for.
I would suggest you consider giving yourself a memorable screen name, I know at least for myself I can track people better than a number that way.
