My mom is having similar issue because she uses inhalers and is taking the iodine.
She does 50mg every other day and does the salt push on opposite days.
She takes 100mg selenium twice per day, 1,500 mg of C twice per day and ALA and epsom salts once per day.
However, I have her taking 600mg NAC (N-Acetyl Cystein) 2 times per day which really helps with breathing.
Using the NAC with serrapeptase improved her, for years 91% lung function, to 97%.
I think it is the bromide and it will take a while to get rid of it.
My mom still uses the inhalers, but I am hoping her body will eventually not need them.
Also, she is gluten free and stays away from GMO.
Gmo's will change the gut flora into a pesticide manufacturing plant, so taking probiotics, Kefir, yogurt, and fermented foods is absolutely necessary.
Iodine can also, mess with the digestive flora.
Vitamin D levels is another puzzle piece that needs to be checked and the optimum level should be between 65-80 ng/mL.
Hope this helps,
My personal experience has been that you can get too much salt for your body. I had the same symptoms as you, very dry mouth, my voice croaked when I spoke, I even got a dry hacking cough. I could not drink enough water to cover for the salt I was taking. Needs are person-specific.
Consider backing up to where you were able to handle symptoms. You may have gone past what you can handle right now. It's not a race.
The ATP CoFactors uses inositol hexaniacinate for their B3. I do not have any flushing with it, and I flush awful on regular niacin.
Have u added any potassium to counter the salt pushes?
apple cider vinegar has potassium or you could try 1/4 tsp potassium chloride and 1/4 tsp sodium chloride as mentioned by another on the forum.
Chlorides will displace bromide.
Halogen Atomic Weight
Fluoride pushes out chloride and chloride pushes out bromide.
