That sounds remarkably similar to what I went through. I had what were candida and general toxicity symptoms. After stopping for six weeks, I restarted iodine, this time at a much higher dose. Another seven weeks up to today, I can say the symptoms are greatly reduced. Although still hypo T, foggy and only semi-functional, I'm fairly confident the worse has passed.
If you have candida, it may be good to use this window to go back on Iodine again for good. Were you taking the companion supplements? Elemental Iodine works on the stomach and digestive track, which means Lugol's instead of SSKI . If Ginagirl sees this, she would also add the Borax protocol. If you still want to avoid iodine, another option is Colloidal Silver .
It's in your interest to fight systemic candida even if candida can't and should not be entirely eliminated. It's still there but hiding in your body. It takes time to kill, months at least for sure.
Yeah, I don't understand why there aren't more Iodine sellers on eBay. Hopefully this incident will bring more of them to the market! After the panic buying of course.
