Re: Lugol's dosage for a noob

A person might tolerate a dose while "reloading" a mineral but then only need a much smaller maintenance dose.

Mercury affects the movement--transport--of minerals. Healthy people might tolerate more generous doses than a person with an Hg problem.

There are plenty of posts in CZ from people who took doses too high for them and regretted it.

My impression from your post is that you need more information before taking big doses of iodine.

From my years in the heavy metal detox groups megadoses of Iodine have not often been reported to be a big help. There are other interventions that are more commonly reported as quite helpful.

Thyroid is only one factor that can affect weight. Heavy metals affect energy production, mitochondria, catecholamine neurotransmitters (inattentive ADD, etc), steroid hormone imbalances, various medications, etc.

Dr D Amen's book Change Your Brain Change Your Body has an interesting perspective on weight.

Since heavy metals affect the brain in many ways, I'd expect his book to be more helpful to people with heavy metals as at least a contributing factor.

When HMs are involved I'd try selenium before iodine. Se is an antioxidant that binds well with HMs. While this helps to protect your body it might leave you with less than optimal levels of Se for production of T3 hormone and protection of thyroid gland.

Remember iron is involved in the use of thyroid hormone.

You may need to change your diet. It is not just about how much you eat but about food groups, etc. Dr Mark Hyman is interesting on the subject of metabolic syndrome. I don't have a link but this might get you started.
