Re: third party ... unfortunately, I'm the family guinea pig. I'm the one who gets to test out all the alternative med and protocols, then if I do well they'll give it a try. My sister is doing a lot of alternative med stuff (she's totally organic, and is working with a practitioner on her nutrients, etc., but I am the one doing the things that mainstream might consider a bit more questionable. She's also pregnant right now (just about to pop), so can't do anything "questionable" until after baby is born and she's no longer nursing. Also does not have a good Internet connection and computer. So I continue to play the lab rat. I've encouraged her about iodine, but just wanted to be able to say after I try the CS that it may help her Raynaud's too (I'm giving the Beck protocol a good try). So for now I have to help her via third party. I do get swelling of the hands also, but don't think it's outright Raynauds, but will be curious to see if it gets better with the H2O2 and colloidal silver.
