Hi Trapper, thank you for your reply - I fully agree with you, and I am drinking salt water, eating potassium rich foods and getting as much fresh air as I can. I was given a very low 10mg dose beta blocker because my pulse rate was going up so high to 125, I am trying not to take more than 1 a day. I am waiting for the results of a complete thyroid panel test as it is thought I have hashimoto. I have posted here because I believe taking Iodine initiated some sort of healing crisis my body couldnt cope with and like everyone else I am looking for answers. I do want to start taking Iodine again but after my test results come back. I would add that I built up to 3mg of Iodine over a few months and felt quite good with no detox symptoms until the virus or whatever it was started, then I got totally overwhelmed with toxicity. thanks again, I have taken on board what you say.
