I'm a 19 year old guy from England.
I had suspected that I had very very mild hypothyroidism (or Iodine deficiency) for a while but I only really acted on it after reading good things about Dr. Brownstein's work.
I then read the Iodine sticky which gave me directions on how to take the iodine.
I bought a bottle of 12% Lugols and took roughly 6 drops in water orally for 3 days.
I felt really quite good but also quite strange (Headache, weird urination patterns etc, lump in my throat-tightness).
I noticed that on the 5th day since I took iodine, the toenails on my littlest toes began to grow. Please note that my littlest toes never ever had a nail on them so this surprised me a lot.
From then I realised that I might be VERY Iodine deficient if roughly 3 days on iodine could make my small toenails grow from nothing.
I decided to stop taking the iodine for roughly 3-4 days just to see how different I would feel but sadly I feel a lot worse than I did before I started the iodine therapy.
right now I feel very cold, my toes and fingernails look blue and Im feeling very foggy. just feelwng very bad right noe
Am I going through some kind of withdrawal? did I damage myself?
Please advise me on what steps to take as I would really like to continue iodine therapy.
