I'm glad I saw this. I wanted to comment on your take on edema. Yes, for some I'm sure it did have something to do with sodium to potassium ratios and for some dehydration...but for others it was due to sensitivity to carbohydrates. Once you get rid of certain or most carbs out of the diet, you can do the salt loads for the Iodine protocol without very much problem. Some just can't do both at the same time without dangerous swelling around different parts of the body. For some it will even accumulate around the heart/chest area. Of course early on no one was aware of this and couldn't advise beginners with this problem.
The Iodine forum was being attacked much like ML's was, as well had plenty of people needing more personalized help. You stayed grumpy with people as well. Didn't tolerate anyone not getting better when it was suppose to work. So I think you understand such things better because the people are harping at you as well to fix them because they didn't know what to do. Working through brain fog was probably the most difficult thing to get through.
When I didn't have the answers, I kept searching. I did learn to endure. So I did try and do deep thinking on the issue. It just took certain turns of events to point me the right direction to find the answers for myself.
I'm sure you know how ML got his start right? He studied under Dr. Reams. Dr. Reams was the famous expert.
