Hi, would be grateful for any help on this - I was taking a low dose of Iodine following the low protocol and got up to about 3mg over a 3 month period. I had to stop 6 weeks ago due to very bad detox symptoms. These are still quite challenging - tiredness, sweating, tingling, palpitations, flu like symptoms, I have been unable to work. Would salt help with this even though I am not currently taking iodine? I am still taking mag, selenium, vit C, B complex. My doctor has told me I have a virus based on swollen lymph nodes in the neck and raised white blood count. Thanks.
A maximum of 3 mg Iodine stopped 6 weeks ago is not giving you a problem now. If your doctor has run a chemistry panel -- and you should have a copy of any tests done -- be sure your serum sodium is about 142-144 and your serum potassium is about 4.2-4.4. Your symptoms are possibly due to low potassium. We can need more potassium when an invigorated metabolism needs it for growth.
On the other hand, if your symptoms are truly a virus, both Colloidal Silver and Iodine are excellent anti-virals. I'm sorry you only got to 3 mg iodine, because the upside of using at least 100 mg is a more vigorous immune system.
Yes, I know you are right about the iodine, 3mg is very low. It just seems that it may have triggered a virus or a detox that my system could not handle. My doctor only ran blood count, glucose and protein. All that showed up was slightly raised total white blood and slightly raised neutrophil. However, I did have potassium and sodium done in september (6 months ago) my serum potassium was 4.2 then and sodium was 139 so lower than 142. I added 1/4tsp of pink salt to my 2L water bottle last night and today and I did feel a bit better. I know they checked all the electrolytes when I went to the ER 6 weeks ago and they told me everything was within range. I think my adrenals have took a hammering and that is where the palps are coming from.

Good article, thanks. Everyone has to make the choice for themselves, and I've made mine. ;)
Women freak when I tell them I haven't had a PAP in 6 years and a mammogram in 10. Oh well, maybe it will make them think twice when they have their legs up in the air and their boobs smashed like a pancake! LOL, sorry guys.
Once again I feel like a closet health nut. My small town is still brain washed. I'll pray for a buddy to join me in my nutty ways! In the meantime, I have all you sane guys and gals to chat with online.
I have a feeling the real love is for the $$$$ and not the individual. I am another person who has never had a mammogram and endured the shocked looks of others. I am glad I am not the only 50+ out their who is going against the tide and actually feels good about my decision. My goodness, no flu shots, no mammograms, got off all my expensive prescriptions. How is the local medical community going to survive if everyone starts thinking like me?
I found a lump in 1997 at 36. I went for a mammogram. Nothing. Ultrasound, positive. Mammogram every year. 2003 Mammogram . . . clean bill. I found lump, again. Double mastectomy. Movin on. 2013. INSIST on a mammogram . . . for what??? My implants? Yes. Nothing. Biopsies? Positive.
That's three for three with me. Worthless radiation. And, WHY, and this happens OFTEN, am I sent for mammograms, cat scans, MRIs of MY FAKE BREASTS? (Answer below)
I have seen some accounts on here about bromide being detoxed through sweat. Is the amount release profound enough to try to sweat daily, or is it only mild? Looking for ways to help move bromides out.
when i first hit Iodine hard i was sunbathing all summer and sweating profusely and i could not let my sweat get in my eyes. felt like acid burning them. i was literally in pain until i got it washed out.
bromine, the word, is from the greek meaning 'stinks like a goat'. if you are sweating out bromine you will know.
Sounds like you may not have had the companion supplements in place before you started Lugol's. Vitamin C and B vitamins come to mind in particular right now. Start some salted water, both drinking and gargling with it.
"An adequate dose of Iodine can be defined as more than 4 mg per day. Lugol's solution is an iodine-in-water solution used by the medical profession for 200 years. One drop (6.5 mg per drop) of Lugol's daily in water, orange juice or milk will gradually eliminate the first phase of the cancer development namely fibrocystic disease of the breast so no new cancers can start. It also will kill abnormal cells floating around in the body at remote sites from the original cancer. Of course this approach appears to work for prostate cancer as prostate cancer is similar to Breast Cancer in many respects. Indeed, it likely will help with most cancers. Also higher doses of Iodine are required for inflammatory breast cancer. As well we know that large doses of intravenous iodine are harmless which makes one wonder what effect this would have on cancer growth."
The Iodine doctors have raised their dosage recommendation for cancer patients this past year. Now 50 mg is the absolute minimum. Dr. Derry was a pioneer. I would love to see any follow-up records he had. He claims his Iodine patients never had a recurrence.
HIGH DOSE Iodine FOR CANCER AND SYSTEMIC MOLD
Case study: I got a severe case of aspergillus fungus mold infection in my lungs which over a few months, I believe led to uterine cancer and asthma.
I could hardly breathe and the asthma inhaler said "causes fungal growth in mouth" so I threw it away.
I started on 300 mg (not mcg) of iodoral Iodine per day (in one dose first thing in the morning) and it took 1 month for that asthma to clear up. At that point I had a pre-scheduled hysterectomy for the uterine cancer (came out to stage 1A).
After 3 months my sinuses and lungs cleared up completely, and I reduced my dosage to 200 mg per day. I had regular thyroid and other blood tests to make sure that nothing was going wrong.
3 years later I have had a full body PET/MRI and I am completely free of mold and cancer. After that I dropped my dosage to 150 mg once or twice a week.
The reason I take a lot at one time is because it seems to me that the blood level of Iodine needs to reach a certain level to kill mold or viral etc infections. I have also started to take high dose liposomal vitamin C when I am not taking iodine (3000-10,000 mg per day).
Thank you for your interesting story!
My only thought is that you might consider remaining on Iodine daily, 100-150 mg. My husband had cleared bromine from his lungs and after some time of high doses (1000 mg SSKI (764 mg iodide)), dropped his maintenance dose too low to 30 mg SSKI (23 mg iodide). This left him scrambling eventually when he worked in two buildings with new furnishings (fire retardants), and his lungs rebelled fiercely. It took 1400 mg SSKI (1070 mg iodide) for several months for him to stop coughing up bromine. His maintenance dose this time will likely be no less than 600 mg iodide, after he stops working in those buildings.
I've been taking huge doses of Lugol's (50-100mg per day) for about 7-8 months. I quit because of kidneys pain. So I got checked and there was no disease or some kind of infection. Half an year later I've tried 1 drop of 2% per day but pain occurred after second intake.
May daily supplements are: 200mcg selenium;
1g vitamin c;elemental magnesium glycinate 500mg; b-right jarrow; a lot of water and salt. I've tried to drink salt water first thing in the morning (5g himalayan) to boost bromide detox and help my glads to get rid of this think, It was great but Every time I drink this salt water my kidneys feel strange, like they are stiff or contracted. First time I have drunken the water I felt sharp kidney pain.
So I Want to ask is there any other kind of Iodine supplementation?
I will switch to one drop/week of 1% Lugol to see.
Any other suggestions?
I need your help.
Looking forward to your reply and sorry for my english.
Kidney pain is not something I have dealt with. It's unsettling that salted water would make your kidneys feel strange. Some ideas --
If you're trying to drink all your day's salt in one glass of water in the morning, that would be a very concentrated solution. Consider putting salt into all your water so the solution you drink is more dilute -- such as 1.25 g salt per liter water.
You could put the Lugol's into water with some dissolved Vitamin C. That would approximate taking Iodide only, to see if it's the Iodine portion that's bothering you. If that helps, you could take all your Iodine in Vitamin C and water, even mixed in with your salt water, if that worked for you.
The adrenals sit on top of the kidneys. They respond to Vitamin C and salt. Are you sure you don't in fact have adrenal issues, rather than kidney issues?
