Does it matter when you do it- eg, on an empty stomach? in the am or pm?- or are there times when you shouldn't do it (eg, right before or after a meal?)
Is there any reason to the salt loading it if you are not doing the Iodine supplementation? Does it help with any other detox?
The reason I am asking is that I seem to be having some of the bromide detox sxs even though I am not doing Iodine yet (the frontal headaches when I wake up, emotional sensitivity, etc.) (I know these could be due to other things as well (!), but am thinking maybe the salt loading would help- might be worth a try?)
"So many people are taking bromides on their own account, so many doctors are prescribing bromides for their nervous patients, that bromide intoxication has become comparatively frequent. Last week the American Medical Association, by publishing the investigations of Drs. Titus Holiday Harris and Abe Hauser of Galveston, indicated what happens from bromide overdosage.
The body requires a certain amount of common salt. Bromides drive out some of that necessary salt. When the displacement reaches 30%, bromide intoxication develops, closely resembling several other kinds of intoxication. The victim becomes drowsy and dull. His wits wander; his memory fails. He has hallucinations, "frequently of the colored type, such as seeing a Negro man or some dark animal." The well known bromide rash may or may not occur.
These symptoms are also those of alcoholic and other drug intoxications, inflammation of the brain, tuberculosis meningitis and several other diseases. A blow on the head may cause them.
But there is a way of distinguishing bromide poisoning. A device called the Wuth comparator indicates the amount of bromides in the blood. If the blood bromides are 30% or more, the condition is one of bromide intoxication.
Treatment is to supply the patient with large quantities of salt until the body's salt equilibrium is reestablished."
In answer to your first question, the chloride helps the kidneys remove bromide out of your body, which is where you want it--gone, finito, sayonara, audios.
Iodine just displaces it, chloride moves it out.
In answer to your second question, as long as you are using unrefined Sea Salt , then none of the myths that you hear about salt should apply. I think some people experience bloating or water retention with their periods, and that is probably where that recommendation comes from. I would think that would be less likely to happen with unrefined salt.
