Yes, detox is something we all go through, and we have well established procedures to handle this. Dr. Brownstein recommends 50mg a day of Lugols or Iodoral long term, with co-supplements. Many of us start out with a lot less to help get us through detox.
PS) The co-supplements are required to be taken with iodine, especially the selenium. The co-supplements are required to get iodine into our cells and the toxins out of our cells. Iodine without the co-supplements is a waste of money and can cause problem.
