I can so totally relate. I have been waiting for the energy to kick in since March last year when I first discovered CZ. I kept reading these posts from people who were on this protocol or that protocol and they were getting loads of energy. I so tried this protocol and that protocol and I just seemed to get more and more detox and feeling worse and worse.
I am still waiting for the energy. I didn't get it on iodine. I still take iodine, I built up slowly and got to 12 drops before the detox got so bad I knocked it back to only 3 a day for long time. I am back up to 7 drops a day again, and may try to go higher. With Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , I am at 9 drops once a day, will take 10 tonight. I intend to work up as close to the 15 2x a day as I can.
