pasted in..."stress is mucus and acid producing. this creates and anaerobic state. Iodine is an oxidator and mucolytic. yes, it would create more of a need for iodine. it also would create more of a need for a mucusless, alkaline producing diet.
it sounds to me like you are very in tune with your body and what it is doing. targeting the breasts int he manner which you did is also pretty savvy stuff."
-----> interesting and could be....actually have had to reduce my intake of acidic foods...like cravings for meat are at an all time low right now (normally eat paleo)
Good idea to focus more on alkalizing my bod....I hadn't put 2 and 2 together on stress with that one.
This is interesting....found one study on DMSO penetration with Iodine as the marker. It got the second layer in the skin and went no further BUT I bet they didn't check to see if the Iodine continued to go further in over a 24-48 hours time span.
I recall one study I saw a long time ago that showed skin as one of the first holding places for ingested iodine. Then it left the skin and moved back in the system. Explains many of our initial 24 hour breakouts.
I need to find that study again....
on my breast problem and iodine....I'll be painting again today with the DMSO and adding in an iodine bath plus douches. I know I need to re-saturate quickly.
