Thanks Wombat- and Misscast (whose message I couldn't reply to? perhaps because of the weird comments posted?).
I'm nervous about starting because I'm scared of the emotional symptoms that some have said go along with the bromide detox. I'm recently off an anti-depressant, and feeling a little like someone pulled the rug out from under me already... I'm finding that I'm not as able to handle the ups and downs of my body as well as I'm used to being able to- and so just not sure I have the resilience for any more emotional/hormonal rockiness. (On the other hand, maybe the Iodine would help...??)
But I like the idea of the creams--- will start for now with what I have (some lugols), and if I get into it, may want some of your cream Wombat.
On another topic (oral dosing):
So is the idea that you start small and gradually build to the 50 mg/day... and then what? I'm confused about what is the dose for clearing bromides, and whether there is then a different ideal dose for maintainance after that? (And how would you know when it was time to switch back, if so?)
