I'm relatively new to this forum. A friend convinced me to try Iodine
recently... I took only one tablet, in the am, and by afternoon had a wierd (yes "frontal") headache, and felt really spaced out, like my mind couldn't follow a thought to its completion. It wore off in a few hours, but I couldn't do much in the meantime. A few days later, I tried only half a tablet. Same symptoms, and my pulse was 98 on waking from a nap.
Based on the reading I've done so far, I'm thinking 2 possibilities: 1) that my adrenals need help first (which they do- have been drained a bit by allergy season), and 2) that, as my friend suggests, I may have a LOT of bromide and/or fluoride toxicity.
My question is, if my system is really that toxic, do I need to be careful starting the Iodine
treatment (after I get my adrenals back on track)? Ie, are there risks to doing it too fast or without the proper additional supplementation and/or guidance from a physician?
Also, I think I read somewhere that there are tests you can do to check your levels of bromide, fluoride, etc? Could someone please tell me what they are called, where I can do them, and where I can find info to help interpret the results?
Thanks very much!
