My opinion is that one should do some basic cleansing before Iodine
can bring on some tough detox, and your organs of elimination need to be operating smoothly. Good that you did a colon cleanse:) If I were you I would address liver function as well. Here's an excellent write-up on liver function:
Also info from the book "Natural Therapy for your Liver" by Christopher Hobbs, L.Ac.
"...Many Ancient systems of healing recognized the fact that bile is a vital bodily fluid. Throughout the world herbs are commonly taken to restore proper bile flow, for when the bile is stagnant, sadness and disharmony can result. The word melancholy, for instance, comes from the Greek melanos("black") and chole("bile"), or literally "black bile"...
...Any emotions a person feels have a basis in biochemistry. When you feel angry, for instance, a complex mixture of hormones and other chemicals speeds to various parts of your body, readying you for action. Likewise, fear, jealousy, joy, sorrow and all our other emotions have a corresponding chemical reality which can create profound changes in our bodies. And depending on the strength and duration of the emotions, these changes can more or less determine a persons character and outlook on life.
Thus, an important function of the liver, which is just now beginning to be understood, is its role in transforming and removing excess hormones from the blood. When the liver is diseased or functioning poorly, its ability to do this is impaired. Then emotional states which should come and go easily linger far longer than necessary. An environment full of negative or excessive emotions burdens the liver.
Take anger, for instance. According to TCM(Traditional Chinese Medicine), anger is associated with the liver and gallbladder...Similarly, in Ayurvedic medicine anger is associated with the fire principal and the liver.Thus in either case someone who is chronically angry angry would be said to have an unhealthy liver or gallbladder."
Also, io-supping can bring on some pretty powerful emotional detox as WELL as physical. Just gotta let you know...get yourself to a good space first:)
