I've had 3 hair tests done all with high levels of arsenic, but they are declining, most recently my Doctor's Data levels have gone from .074 (july) to .052 (oct). I've also had moderate levels of titanium, aluminum, antimony, and uranium show up on these.
I'm taking Lugol's
5% (~10 drops), but not every day and 10 drops of magnascent every day. I'm also taking Cardio-C 1-2 scoops a day and 400mcg of selenium.
I've done 3 rounds of chelation with 10-50mg of DMSA plus 10-20mg of ALA using the Cutler protocol, 3 liver flushes, and taking a slew of supplements including manganese, B12, WTSmed metabolic nutrition, magnesium, grape seed extract, and cod liver oil, plus others.
My most recent TSH came back at 6.5 when it was going lower before this. That put me out of the ridiculous "normal range" and my doc sent me for a sonogram today. I asked the technician if she could give me any information and all she could tell me was that each lobe was about 6 cm
long. This is definitely indicative of a goiter or enlarged thyroid - my words, not hers.
I'm frustrated and discouraged with Iodine
supping and thought I was doing everything I could to heal my body. What am I missing? I don't want to be on thyroid hormone, but I have this feeling that nothing is working because I've been at this for 9 months. I still think the root cause is heavy metals damaging the thyroid itself or possibly at the pituitary level.
