"Yeah, my liver quit on me years ago (not literally but it's so congested that any little detox I try just sets me back for weeks.)"
hi Allegro, thanks for the good wishes
I know what you mean!! I never tried DMSA, DMPS, EDTA and on because even a very little bit of ALA or NAC would send me into a crises spin.
I've had CFS, Fibromyalgia, MCS, and on for 12 years after a mold exposure. And removal of amalgams, root canals, cavitation surgeries (4) and running for years to avoid the chemicals that have made me react (most).
Even with all of this and other treatments the health didn't seem to budge till I very gradually (its been almost a year) and gingerly added in the iodine. Started with just breathing it out of a cup of water. Then just little sips. If I went over too much I'd end up with seizures at night. No fun.
So, now I'm up to 60 mg Lugol's 2% per day! (pulsed, not every day) and if I go up to 80 mg or 100 mg the seizures start up again.
But its the main thing that has helped me!
And seemingly, starting to drive down the fungal infections and the abdominal swelling and I don't turn yellow as often (so maybe the liver is being helped too?).
In my opinion, stay with the Iodine even though so slow. That's at least what I am doing and so far so good.
