So I worked my way up to 4 12.5mg of iodoral for a few weeks without any companion nutrients though I was eating a TON of oranges (vitamin c) and I had now symptoms except my skin got SUPER, SUPER dry all over. The most dry it's ever been (and I have eczema so I'm familiar with dry skin) but this was worse and it was rough.
I took a (barley) one a half week break and my skin got better. Now I'm doing another round of iodoral but am only doing one 12.5mg pill plus companions.
For companions I'm taking:
one 200mcg selenium 2x/day,
one 30mg zinc 2x/day (only doing this for a week, then I'll do one 30mg zinc 1x/day for 3 weeks)
one 100mg b2 2x/day,
one 500mg b3 (non-flushing) 2x/day
I've only been doing this for 3 or 4 days and I woke up today with a swollen feeling in my throat when I swallow. Took some salt water and it's gone down a bit. I've had this before when I messed with Iodine
long time ago.
am I doing the companions right?
why would I have the knot in my throat now that I'm taking the companions?
is this too much selenium?
I know the first round caused the dry skin, was it because of too much Iodine
or no companions?
should I take a break, was my break between round 1 and round 2 not enough seeing as I had the dry skin reaction during round 1 and wasn't taking any companions with a large Iodine
dose and it was barely a week and a half between the two rounds?
I have vitamin c sustained release pills but haven't started because there HUGE, how important are they? how much should I really take?
