Is there a way to quantify electrolyte balance? I see discussions on magnesium, calcium, potassium, unrefined salt, boron, etc. and am rather lost. Is there an ideal ratio to maintain, or do we go by symptoms? I'm doing the Iodine protocol (currently at two Iodorals/day) with all the companions (for fibrocystic breasts). I've also placed my husband on the same. He has thyroid cysts, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. He wants to know why I'm dropping his calcium supplement and if he should supplement potassium and boron.
