Slow n steady linked Grizz' Iodine reference files, please do read, Grizz has done an absolutely phenomenal job with that.
As far as detox symptoms go, many of our forum members have reported that they suffered minimal/no detox with starting out at a high dosage(100mg).
Another thing that helps is pulsing the dose(4 days on, 3 off or 5 days on, 2 off).
I found the coffee enema very helpful for difficult detox(headache, flu-ey stuff).
Don't be afraid of detox. Trapper sez the worse the detox, the more you need Iodine and I tend to agree with him.
Now, you do realize that skin eruptions are a common side effect of Iodine supplementation, aren't you? These eruptions are NOT acne, but I want you to know that your skin may look worse before it looks better.
Be grateful for the fact that your skin lets you know when you eat wrong, what a marvelous gift. Heed it's advice, if something makes you break out- don't eat it!
Do a search on anti-inflammatory diet:)
