What I am doing: 2 days at 100 mg via iodoral, 3 days at 125 mg via iodoral, two days at about 370 or so mg via iodoral and lugol's. I am in the last quarter of the Humaworm cleanse which is two capsules of herbs twice a day. I did skip the salt pushes for four days, but took two or more the last three days because detox got uncomfortable for me, and because I upped the Iodine
amount. I continued the okra pepsin, but went up and down between one and two capsules with at least two meals a day. I began IP6 on the 4th day and have taken 4-6 of the 800 mg tablets for each day. I have not been taking the Vit C or magnesium consistantly, but have been eating raw brazil nuts, at least an ounce a day which is about 800 mg selenium. I am still using the coconut oil/lugol's for all over application. And I have been painting with the detoxed iodine- the color does not last as long. I have done dry skin brushing five times this week.
What happened: All the bumps/pimples on my back went away in a day or so. However I have three large weeping bumps on my face.. not like normal pimples at all, more like little pimple clumps - gross, sorry. I tried applying iodine, Bentonite
clay and finally salt to them. They have been there for five days. Not pretty, but they seem to have calmed down a bit today. Lots of energy - I liked that. I even found myself climbing a high hill with gusto again one day this week. However, this was balanced out with bouts of detox. And I noticed that the next day detox felt more like bone deep fatigue. Every movement could be such a chore. I took more salt for that.. .it totally worked. I am absolutely smaller, but at the same weight as before I began iodine. I am not limiting my food intake, nor pushing workouts, so not a big surprise for me. I was able to boogie earlier in the week and the last two days, so I am getting back to my workouts, finally. I had a horrendous detox from the Humaworm over the weekend. I slept for 19 hours... and then it all came out in the toilet... nothing to take pictures of, but I felt so much better afterwards it was almost comical.
The crown headaches are gone. I was not as productive as last week, but more thoughtful. Making some more of what feels like good decisions. I am beginning to rely on this level of calm inner peace. I quite like it. I did miss the big drama of major detox , but after the tampon adventure and detox, and my light bulb moment yesterday, I am going to scale back happily to 100 mg and stay there a while.
My sister who went away stopped the Iodine
for 9 days, was fine and then had a detox - well, she calls it a cold - but it did not lay her low at all and she was able to keep attending her convention. She is back on Iodine
for four days now and says she feels fine.
My other sister is up to 8 drops Lugol's
and finally had her first detox dream. We compared notes and laughed about them. She skipped a day in prep for a colonoscopy. Otherwise, she thinks the idione is making her happier and easier to get along with. I noticed that she was much chattier as well as more cheerful.
My friend who began at 50 mg went away on a cruise and came home.. still happily taking iodine with her husband... no detox to speak of, even though she knows what to do and about the support supplements - she is keeping it simple. A big thumbs up from her.
My package to my little sister went astray, so she is ordering her Lugol's
online. She is feeling a bit left out of the iodine loop. She has no results to share yet.grin
I honestly think that the effect of iodine on my life shall prove to be more profound than all the twenty plus liver flushes, the four Master Cleanses, the years of Macrobiotics,decades of meditating and yoga combined were. Big grin.... but that is still just a guess right now.
