Hi guys, just a few questions I have now that I've received my Iodine.
Is the skin test a consistent indicator of needing more iodine? I read that if it absorbs within 24 hours into the skin then you are deficient, but I had read somewhere else that it was much less like within 12 hours.
I guess my point to all this is, even after doing the Iodine
skin test with Dr. Hulda Clark
it took about 12 hours for the Iodine
to absorb fully. Does this mean I can do the large doses of Iodine that so many people are doing 6+ drops x 3 times per day or is my body showing I'm quite sufficient. I understand Iodine can be supplemented 100,000x the RDA, I'm just unsure if I'm one of the ones who needs excessive doses. Are most people who take these mega-doses absorbing the iodine into their skin very quickly when they do the skin test, within just a few hours if that's even possible? Does the skin test matter so much or should I just get right on supplementing it?
I've been suffering from multiple food, environmental and chemical allergies and from what I've been reading if I take these large doses long enough allergies can be eliminated, this being due to an increased histidine production which will lower my histimine production.
Also I match up all the hypothyroid symptoms EXCEPT I'm very thin about 8% body fat. Is being overweight a neccessary symptom for this to be diagnosed?
I'm going to go take another dose of 6 drops of Iodine, thanks in advance to anyone who posts in response to this.
