Wish I was brave enough to go right into 12.5 mg like some people started on. Yeah, the fear is definitely in my mind. I have body image issues to begin with in terms of Acne and 10 lb. unexplained weight gain over the past year so getting more Acne and bloat from detox is not something I want, although I understand those are temporary. I am hearing you when you say take more for less detox symptoms. However, I've also read some people bloat up 15-30 pounds rapidly from taking too high a dose too quickly. So that's what's tripping me up!
I'm definitely Iodine deficient...going vegan for 3 months didn't help matters. Now I'm back to eating more fats/protein.
Going to buy some dandelion tea to help combat some bloat as I increase dosage...
Thanks for listening to my fears and explaining more about the process.
