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.
Oh, goodness, the genetic thing was just a general comment. We all have genetic anomalies, and looking in from the outside doesn't always tell what's happening.
I had the same response to magnesium oil.
Sea salt is a nonprocessed salt, so, yes, it's good to use with your water. You just want to keep salt and water balanced so you don't feel dried up.
The group is fully moderated, and your post won't show up until someone is ready to answer it and approves it. All in good time.
I just realized that their monthly break will start tonight. That means that they close for one week starting the last Friday night of the month, and they will reopen next Saturday morning. You might be able to get one more post answered today, then you can think about what they say during next week.
I posted this a few days ago, but got no response.
I believe this is one of the greatest discoveries for people with low thyroid symptoms.
IODINE + ICE CREAM = MAJOR THYROID BOOSTER!
I have been taking Iodine off and on for the last 3-4 years, along with the co-supplements. When I first started taking it I lost a lot of weight and my face got A LOT less puffy (similar to the picture of this girl). At the time, I was drinking Slurpees everyday and I never thought the Slurpees could be related to the reduction in low-thyroid symptoms.
So off and on over the past 3-4 years, I continued to take Iodine and I never had the same effect as when I first started taking it. Then I randomly started to eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream every day (as a meal) for like 10 days and noticed the EXACT same effects as when I was drinking slurpees everyday - puffy face reduction, weight loss. So I've continued eating ice cream every day for about 30 days now and continue to see results.
My theory is that the cold temperatures somehow boost or help regulate thyroid hormones.
I have read that sugar is somewhat necessary for thyroid function and that "low carb" diets hurt thyroid function. However I do not believe the effect was caused by an increase in sugar because I already eat a lot of sugar and eating slurpees/ice cream every day didn't increase my daily sugar intake. (eg. I typically drink a Coke with my food - so I just replaced Coke with a Slurpee).
I usually take Iodine in the morning by itself (with real salt), then selenium/magnesium/b2/b3 at lunch, then ice cream for dinner. I do not take vitamin c.
This is the best thing that has ever happened to me in regards to reading about cyst help. I have never heard any of these things explained in such depth and never knew what options I had aside from surgery and birth control. Birth control is not helping me. Thank you so much! And even though this post is old it's still useful.
Thanks for your response, I just checked my pressure and pulse, it is 141/90 and BPM is 90. I am waiting for the doctor to ring me, I think I am going to get a hard time over the iodine. I was hoping it was the chlorella that was giving me a detox symptom, but my pulse has been up since last night. Usually my blood pressure is quite normal. Last time I checked my resting bpm a week ago it was 75. I have been taking 200mcg of selenium for over a year but I only started increasing Iodine above the rda in september. I'm stopping the Iodine and anything else other than the salt water and companion nutrients for now and see what the "urgent care" team say when they ring me. UPDATE, doctor rang and wants to see me at the surgery in 30 minutes time with all the supplements I am taking - not looking forward to it!
Just got back from the doctors, she made my BP 129/76, bpm 79 and temp 37.1 and said all was well - she was ok with the supplements apart from the iodine (obviously), I am fairly sure now it was a reaction to the chlorella - I took 3gms a day for 4 days and I think it may have stirred up some nasties. Shall go back to spirulina, I seem ok with that.
I made a false assumption that the vendor was making his or her own Lugol's. But with the vendor selling J Crow's, you should be okay. Are you worried about it being counterfeit? I'm more likely to believe that people sell what they claim, most of the time.
Lugol's 2% has 2.5 mg per drop -- 1 mg Iodine + 1.5 mg iodide. You've made a good choice.

Objective Alcohol consumption is an important protective risk factor for many autoimmune diseases. We wished to study the association between alcohol consumption and autoimmune hypothyroidism.
Methods Patients with newly diagnosed autoimmune overt hypothyroidism (n=140) were prospectively identified in a population (2 027 208 person-years of observation), and their matched controls with normal thyroid function (n=560) were recruited simultaneously from the same population. Participants gave information on alcohol intake, smoking, previous diseases, education, and family history of hypothyroidism. The association between alcohol intake and development of hypothyroidism was analyzed in conditional regression models.
Results Hypothyroid cases had reported a lower alcohol consumption than controls (median units of alcohol (12 g) per week: 3 vs 5, P=0.002). In a multivariate regression model, alcohol consumption was associated with a reduction in risk for development of overt autoimmune hypothyroidism. Odds ratios (95% confidence interval) compared with the reference group with a recent (last year) consumption of 1Ė10 units of alcohol per week were as follows: 0 units/week, 1.98 (1.21Ė3.33); 11Ė20 units/week, 0.41 (0.20Ė0.83); and ≥21 units/week, 0.90 (0.41Ė2.00). Similar results were found for maximum previous alcohol consumption during a calendar year. No interaction was found with type of alcohol consumed (wine vs beer), sex, or region of inhabitancy.
Conclusions Alcohol consumption seems to confer considerable protection against development of overt autoimmune hypothyroidism irrespective of sex and type of alcohol consumed.
