It's people like you why I will never stop fighting.
I do realize how much it can affect someone. Our health's are >50% of the reason the world is so mean to each other.
Maybe if everyone wasn't so worried about their healths they would relax and enjoy it and have more fun.
So far all I can say about Iodine is that it has made my muscles twich more. It has made me more regular, once a day to 2-4 times a day. And the quality of shits...well one square of toilet paper vs half the roll.
I don't know if it;s the end all solution everyone is searching for but it makes sense now that everytime I have done a 'parasite cleanse' and taken Black-Walnut (which has organic iodine) my poo gets better and I start feeling a lot better.
If you decide to try it make sure you buy yourself some potassium or magnesium chloride (potassium chloride sold as NoSalt) cause the aches can hurt. When I started my prostate ached like HELL for almost a week. And since Iodine is supposed to remove heavy metals make sure you are taking some sulphide and Selenium, zinc and magnesium to help the detox...a good supply of B vitamins might help too so consider a multi vit.
Right now I am taking, Brazil nuts (for selenium) Garlic supps (for sulphide and selenium) flax (for alpha linole.. acid..helps with mercury detox and with building strong cell walls due to the omega 3s) and a multivit.
If you can give heavy metal chelation or IV chelation a try and can afford it, it might help, I've read lots about it. I would try it but my path is not making doctors rich or depriving the man who can only afford cheap stuff of being healthful.
I've taken over a gram of Iodine + ACV for a month, still twitching like crazy but noticing some improvements in feeling better and digestion.
