Five weeks ago, I took iodoral (12.5 mg) for two weeks and then increased it to 25 mg. I've also been Sea Salt loading (3/2 tbps, 1980 mg sodium) with 2-day breaks every week. But the detox symptoms were crippling, especially the COPD, such that I've had to stop the iodine. It's like breathing through a pillow. I know I've been too aggressive and should have obtained the companion supplements at the first sign of trouble. But it's a fight just to read this forum and post. I'm going to order vitamin C, B complex and selenomethionine. Are there other supps or protocols you would recommend for someone who's had COPD all his life?
