My story is mycotoxins (thanks to toxic mold) has taken me out of sports for quite a while but my heart still bleeds for my sports. I miss training everyday and all the hope I had for myself athletic-wise. If I am lucky to be able to push myself again will being on Iodine possibly give me any advantages?
I don't consider myself an athlete unless u include cheerleading in high school and being superwoman as a mother, but i have been an avid exerciser for years! Since the age of 16 to be exact. From what i hear, ppl who work out rigorously lose even more minerals and iodine thru sweating and may need to supplement even more to keep saturated.
Since starting iodine, I have gone back to working out daily with no fatigue whereas before, with a cfs and fibro diagnosis, i intended to exercise daily but could push myself two to three times a week and i usually felt like death afterwards.. now i wake up at 5am and sweat and lift and feel awesome! I work out hard too so it isn't like a jog or a few shoulder presses. I am aware that I need my adrenals not to get damaged tho so when I feel sluggish, I only walk or do light cardio...
all that is to say that i truly believe that it will help. i read up here a few times of ppl who are running harder and longer than ever after a few months of iodine. i am only a month in and am doing double the exercise with no problem.
my water weight and fluff is melting away! I am feeling great.
trust me on this, every cat is capable of filling a litter box in no time. that is prima face evidence of an ass if there ever was.
iodine makes everything work better. based upon my own experience and that of others, the specific benefits to athletics would be:
higher energy levels
better reaction time
better muscle control
the ability to build muscle faster
athletes dont need steroids, they just need Iodine so that all of their hormones work better and recovery time is less due to better enzymatic action and higher sustained levels of energy are assisted by a more alkaline pH and increased oxygenation.
i am glad you enjoyed my little joke. but the things i said in this post are serious.
Thanks so much for the tip of the iceberg then because thats just phenomenal!
Not to be greedy but I am super interested in any more info you'd have on sports...I really believe literally every day since Ive been ill I throw a tantrum in my mind about not begin able to compete. When I was healthy I sacrificed everything for sports and its just really emotional for me not to be able to continue these past years. Sorry about the little biography but im basically saying Im desperate for this kind of help and would do anything to be back in action, really anything.
trapper - that's how it feels!!! But to be fair, reality is that everyone else has a disadvantage because u r just healthy now with iodine. it is the way God intended for us to be!
everyone else is eating low fat and low carb and im eating whole foods, butter and milk and not skimping and eating fake low fat crap...and they are gaining while i lose. they hate me! lol..i do not care. i would never trade my former self for my new self..not for all the money in the world. guess it's safe to say that money cannot buy health. my medical bills are over a few grand and no one helped me...iodine and supps cost me less than $100 and i'm cured (er..on my way to be cured).
Marcell, he is not exaggerating. I am doing all my schoolwork, my work at my job and working out daily, and i take care of three kids (2 of which are in school with after school activities) and a husband. The ONLY problem i have since Iodine is that there is not enuf time in the day! i don't even feel tired anymore..(unless from detoxing). I MAKE myself go to bed and am out usually within 10 minutes..not waking up at night anymore - i wake up refreshed. someone who felt as sick as me can appreciate how great it feels to feel even a little better...but to feel THIS much better is a miracle!
Yes it can help athletes, intelectuals, spirituals, and those none of above. :)
I just started working out properly for the first time in 4 years (not coincidentally as my hypo T developed that period) It feels good; not the muscle pain after exercise I used to have before Iodine / magnesium etc.
