I'm trying really hard to fix whatever is causing my symptoms mentioned in the title. These symptoms started getting as bad as they are after a traumatic event. I feel a lot better these days, but am really foggy headed all the time, can't concentrate, introverted and apathetic, sometimes irritable. I already had these issues before the trauma, but they were very mild.
I've read about how great Iodine is for brain fog and was wondering if that would help me? I hate how unmotivated I am about my life. Most people my age are nothing like this. If someone has any ideas or needs more details... Please let me know. I've talked to my doctor about it and he tells me I need medication for depression and that he will not help me in a holistic way.
Here's an example of what it's like to live with this everyday: I'll be driving, it's 1pm, and I have to squint my eyes because my eyes get so sensitive to sunlight. My brain just spaces out, sometimes so much that I can barely focus my eyes and my vision blurs. I recognize how out-of-it I am but it's very difficult to pull myself out, and even if I do, I easily slip back in.
I also have hollow, black circles around my eyes 24/7, I'm always tired, and I sleep around 8 hours every night. My diet is usually decent, I drink a lot of water, and I supplement with a multi, fish oil, vitamin c, magnesium, vitamin d, and zinc. I relate to the symptoms of mercury toxicity and am going to try a cilantro+chlorella detox tincture along with 5 drops daily of Lugol'sIodine 2%.
KI is the molecule the body uses. the thyroid makes thyroid hormones with the iodine. yes, the KI molecule is broken up by the thyroid. T1, T2, T3, and T4 all designate how many atoms of Iodine they have in them in their names. KI, the molecule used to "iodize" salt, is broken aprt and recombined by the body all the time. it provides elemental Iodine to the places it is needed.
look at it this way. iodide, the salt, is just food. the elemental form as in Lugols is caustic, reactive, and corrective in nature. it is more like medicine. i still take iodine every day because i can, but is it necessary? probably not most of the time, especially in one who is iosdine sufficient, which can take 3 months or 3 years, depending on the condition of the person.
as for the lungs, KI is an expectorant, not an antibiotic. ozone directly into the blood is what i prefer for infections.
Many thanks, I think I would prefer to do that as I need support for this. What about taking a kelp tablet with just the RDA (iodine) in it, I read kelp is good for the adrenals - it is the one I used to take before I started on Iodine and it never gave me an issue.
Trapper (below) is right that you should cut down on the dosage. Ever hear the expression: Too much of a good thing? Salt is essential to our survival, but you can kill yourself with it if you ingest a cup or two in one sitting.
As to expense, you can make your own Lugol's cheaply and have enough left over to sell to friends and family for a lot less than they'd have to pay on line. Just Google "make Lugol's" and you'll see Tony's YouTube video. You'll have an initial cost--one of them being a postage scale to weigh the Iodine crystals. I think mine cost about $4 or $5.Your small investment will repay you. I made a batch of Lugol's about 2 years ago, gave some to friends and family and still have plenty for me.
