Wayyyyyyyyyy in the beginning of my Iodine
supplementation, after I had read Publication #5 by Guy Abraham MD
(of whom headed "The Iodine
Project") that Trapper had posted on another health forum I frequent, I started taking the leftover organic Iodine
tablets I had from my chiropractor(3mg daily, 1 tablet daily, brandname "Standard Process").
After only 8 days of doing just that
, I went to a niece's house and discovered I was no longer allergic to her cats. Sometime shortly after that, I listened to the two-hour audio with guest speaker Dr Flechas
(also of "The Iodine Project") and got my confirmation that iodine deficiency is definitely connected to allergies.
I then received my "detoxified" iodine
. I started taking just a couple of drops daily, but after reading how others (probably Trapper) that they tried taking quite a bit more, I got brave (because I was cold to the core from my hypothyroidism) and painted 15 drops of it on my belly (which only equated to 3mg) - besides the few drops I was taking orally, and still taking just one daily of the Standard Process tablets.
Within 10 minutes of painting my belly, I had a RUSH of warmth, (I was also hoping to get off my thyroid med of levothyroxine). However, I also received a very scary heart-racing episode that scared me. My heartrate was too slow before that.
Well, I then did some slow rhythmic inhale/exhale exercises to calm down (and prayed a lot). Within ten minutes all was fine again. ON THE PLUS SIDE, the benefit is that my heartrate stayed at about 72-74 beats a minute from then on. It was typically in the low 60's range before that - too slow for an out-of-shape overweight woman.
Sometime after that, Vulcanel had posted an article on how bromines can take iodine's rightful place in the heart tissues! I believe that my body recognized the need to "address" my heart (as a priority) with that extra iodine I took, and corrected that bromide issue in my heart by pushing them OUT! I believe that extra iodine I painted on my body, (besides the drops I took by mouth and the 3mg tablets I was still taking) took care of my heart issue.
Because, you see, I have not
heart problems from that day on
- and that was February of 2007
I praise God for that, and am quite grateful to a friend's spirit for being "in tune" to God.
You see, the night before I read that article on the safety of iodine that Trapper posted, the very night before
, found me on my knees crying and praying to God. I was praying about how I had (pure)water-only fasted, how I had "gone raw" for weeks on end, how I had learned about natural Seasalt
, and drinking enough water
, and how not to mix certain foods...and still
I had all these problems.
I just knew
that there had
to be a "simple" answer - and I cried to God, "WHAT is missing from my diet????"
He answered my prayer, and I am so eternally grateful.
