I do have to mention that I did have crazy long days in the gym (sometimes 2-3 hours) but I don't do it that often anymore, because I know 1 hours is enough and more may even decline in results. However, I did switch to another brand. Maybe I need to switch again and see what happens.
I ONLY apply topical magnesium on workout days, and even when I do: it's only approx 300-450mg that I spray on the body. The rest of the magnesium I further supply with supplements and food. That would put me at 800-1000mg for that day.
Lately I may have been more sloppy and only went for 600-700 a day, I don't know. I do know that when I started Iodine again, for some reason I experience these symptoms. Don't get me wrong though, I do not "blaim iodine", since it has given me very good results but I think it may even push the body further in the need of magnesium. Just a theory and again, I don't know for sure. Anyhow, I'll try and get that magnesium u mentioned, but would the magnesium I put in the link also be a good contender? It's malate, isn't malate a bit better then citrate in terms of absorption and side effects (such as loose stools), could u perhaps help me out on that?
I think we did a small miscalculation though. The multivitamin contains 5000IU of vitamin A (2000IU = retinol and 3000IU = carotene). One top of that (lately) I added the Cod Liver Oil which contains another 3000IU of retinol. That would put the total amount at 5000IU of retinol and 3000 carotene = 8000IU total (and of that grandtotal 8000IU, it's assumingly 2k synthethic retinol and 3k natural retinol because of the cod liver oil, and the rest is carotene).
I don't have headaches and other sorts of problems BUT in the past, I did had some trouble focusing and was a bit dizzy/drowsy. I decided to stop the cod liver oil back then, but it might aswell been the Iodine because of the heavy detox. I am so glad my skin cleared up, because I actually found out (by accident) that the only thing I changed the past couple of days was the added cod liver oil, which resulted in cleared skin right now.
And as for the thyroid, I even dare to go as far that the "stuck" feeling I was having from back then, suddenly got less also the past days. I don't know why, but it just has to be the "extra" vitamin A. For now, let's assume it's not or that it may be a possibility of resolving the stuck feeling in the thyroid. Let's find out in a couple of weeks/months.
Max you will need to take is 200mg, since the absorption is way higher than most pill forms of magnesium. But warning, these taste disgusting.
I can tell you for a fact, every time I stop taking iodine with salt I have major joint pain. I don't know why, I just know it happens. It makes my hands feel very stiff and if I go long enough without salt, I can barely move my wrists. The longer I go, the worse it gets.
From what I understand, Iodine releases toxins into the bloodstream, and salt is necessary to help flush them out. As far as your kindey stones, I have no clue, I've never researched that.
Hopefully I dont have worms lol - I've never craved ice cream in my life, even now!
I've only eaten ice cream like crazy two times in my life - Slurpees and Ben-and-Jerrys. I usually never even eat it. I ate the Slurpees everyday because I was trying to save money and 3 taquitos + a slurpee was a great deal. Then started eating ice cream everyday ONLY BECAUSE I wanted to find out which Ben and Jerrys flavor was the best lol.
And yea I have heard that low thyroid people crave ice cream, but couldn't find any link to metabolism. And the thing is - it only supercharges my metabolism WITH IODINE. Without iodine, it seems to work a little, but not nearly as effectively.
I still believe it has to do with the temperature, not the nutritional contents. When I switched from drinking a medium Coke with dinner, to drinking a Slurpee with dinner, the nutritional contents basically stayed the same - sugar, chemical flavors, dye.
