"I could use some reassurance that others have been in this place, made it through and thrived"
-I have. My detox took 3 months, I woke up one day and it was as if someone had turned the light on :)
I was very close to give up in the middle of it.
-one of the bromide detox symptoms is depression, so hang in there.
What you could try; and this is only based on my own experience, is to jump up to several 100 mg or even up one gram of iodine
-the high dosage may make you push through the detox, instead of being stuck, and at least you may experience some of the good symptoms of iodine; wellbeing, sharper brain, energy etc.
A combination with coconut oil usually put the energy on.
And cayenne if one are sluggish; I used this a lot the first year.
For Depression and also coldness; warm shower, then as cold as you can take, then warm, then icy cold. This will start the endorfines and circulation in your body. A mood enchanter, definitely.
one other option is to change type of iodine, or take two different types. SSKI , magnacent etc.
Trapper is the man to talk to about it.
