I felt like I was going hypothyroid on 75mg of Iodine and 250mcg of selenium per day.
I had tightness and pain the throat. I had really bad mental confusion and brain fog and was unable to speak properly. Certain syllables were really difficult to pronounce for some reason. I got cold extremities and fatigue.
I stopped everything all together for a few days.
The problem is that I have a severely compromised digestive system. Without the iodine, I go back to extreme nausea and bloating and general unwell feeling after eating.
When I re-introduce the iodine, that goes away completely.
So, I am going to experiment with taking the Iodine and no extra selenium at all.
I felt my best on the Iodine when I was NOT taking any selenium. The problems did not start until I started taking selenium.
I get 55mcg of selenium naturally from my diet (I eat a lot of meat), so I wonder if I just don't need any extra.
I will report back my results.
It's amazing that the iodine alone completely reverses my digestive problems.
