I have started taking Iodoral 25 mg per day - since then I have had horrible headaches, higher blood pressure than usual (I have a problem with BP) and just all over feeling sick, achy, etc.
Should I take the Lugol's instead? Is that the tincture?
My doctor (MD and alternative) thought I should start the Iodine - I had up to that point been painting my arm several times a week with regular iodine from the drug store but did not think it was healthy after some reading.
Does the Iodoral give anyone else headaches and make you feel like you are burning hot?
Thanks Trapper for your advice and knowledge - actually I was taking two a day (12 mg each for a total of 25 mg)
I emailed my doc (alternative and MD) and she suggested cutting to 1/2 - ie 12 mg - so now I don't get the headaches but I do have high blood pressure which I am taking medicine for and want so very much to get off the darned drugs - everything else I do is alternative, organic, chemical free (when possible,), etc.
By the way, my legs recently have been so swollen - in particular the feet, ankles like crazy and about half way up. But, the majority of the pressure and swlling is in my feet and ankles - what the heck is this from ??
I guess I could take a natural diuretic and why is the potassium bad if you are taking meds for BP?? I have to do a lot of reading here but god, I am trying to build up my iron and hemoglobin and as a result of their being low I am tired - and juicing is such a pain - I did it for four days - beets, carrots, Celery all for my blood and iron but just so much clean up and prep.
OK - don't you think that 12 mg of Iodoral is too low and what do you think of the Lugols tincture instead.
Are the frontal headaches just from bromide or can they also be from other sources? I am asking because I have only eaten organic and then gluten free bread since 2006. However, I could have had still bromide in my system, but I also get those headaches it seems when I take any Vitamin B sources. Even Dr. Schulze 's Superfood had that affect on me. My forehead gets very heavy and achy then......you can literally see it - my upper eyelids will also droop more then.....whats'up with that??
No to everything and I really upped my water intake 8 weeks ago as it is generally suggested here and by DR.Schulze, that's also when I stopped drinking coffee and black tea. I would hope I'd be over the caffeine withdrawal by now with everything I have tried......sigh
