bromide dominance detox symptoms general iodine info salt loading companion nutrients that should definitely be taken along with Iodine Iodine Loading test
I haven 't fully digested this site but a lot of good info this bromide thing is so important because it can warrant taking Iodine at doses that seem like a lot and because if people start having detox symptoms they need to be really clear they are probably bromide detox symptoms not Iodine toxicity symptoms
Dr Brownstein clips talking about Iodine he is clear and easy to understand I met him two years ago speaking at the boulder functional medicine group he has a great book on Iodine and tons of personal experience in his practice
The safe and effective implementation of orthoiodosupplementation in medical practice by Guy E. Abraham, M.D. Great article, he has an atittude but I think it is totally justified, IMHO. Shares some of the history around how Iodine became a bad guy. Dr. Abraham is the mentor for both Dr. Brownstein and Dr. Flechas. These three are often called the "Iodine Docs" because they are actively researching and promoting the use of Iodine in medicine.
Wombat is one of the moderators she had serious FBD and healed herself with Iodine as a primary agent curezone can be a great place for people having detox symptoms to ask questions to people who have been around the block ie. I found out that runny nose, skin breakouts, itching, headaches, anxiety and getting really cold at times are all common detox symptoms that will go away in time while taking Iodine.
googling David Brownstein or Jorge Flechas or Guy Abraham and the word Iodine can be useful sometimes too
the following is a response Wombat, from the Iodine Supplementation Forum by VWT at http://www.curezone.com, made to me when i asked her for good Iodine info:
<< As far as convincing someone of the necessity of Iodine supplementation, this Dr. Fleschas audio has convinced many, and brought a few to tears: http://curezone.com/ig/i.asp?i=21726
& as far as convincing someone of the efficacy of iodine supplementation, this video shows that Iodine supplementation, even after deprivation can have a positive influence on intellectual development... cretinism reversed in the next generation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NV4X5cXaf7Y
So that should give something to chew on for awhile Let me know what you think of all of this, if you have more questions I am happy to talk
I have had several clients have some really cool changes: more energy, warmer, breasts softening, uterine fibroids shrinking, menstrual symptoms lessening and more. One of my clients starting sweating for the first time in her life. I shouldn't have been surprised, but the sweat glands need iodine to work properly. Even my girlfriends breasts softened after just 2 months on Iodine and her menstrual symptoms have lessened.
I of course have had full fledged detox symptoms like anxiety, metallic taste in mouth and more which have often gone away with a simple salt push: 1/4 -1/2tsp Sea Salt in 12-16 oz water.
Most people don't have any detox symptoms or they are pretty mild, but some percentage of people have some moderately to very strong detox symptoms so it can be important to have some familiarity with what these symptoms are and how to ameliorate them.
titrate dosage up from 6.25mg of Lugol's (1 drop of 5% Lugol's) or Iodoral to 50mg if the detox isn't kicking your butt too bad. At some point you might want to try 100mg Dr. Flechas puts people with active cancer at 200mg
companion supplements: 400-600mg Magnesium Citrate or Malate 200-400mcg selenium in the form selenomethionine B-complex 3 or more grams Vitamin C
do one salt push a day or more as needed to reduce detox symptoms
