Bloat is one of the symptoms of taking too much iodine too soon, causing excessive detox. Iodine does not cause weight gain. It is the toxins that come pouring out of the cells that cause the weight gain. If more toxins pour into the bloodstream than the liver & kidneys can handle, the body responds with bloat, pimples, headaches, and more. This is exactly why we start small, so toxins are eliminated in tiny doses that the liver & kidneys can easily handle.
My procedures call for 1 drop of iodine in a bottle to start, then drink 1 ounce daily (1/3rd of a mg iodine) for the 1st week. 2 ounces 2nd week, and so on. Starting small and going slooow eliminates most if not all of the detox symptoms. Procedures here
We do have procedures to handle detox symptoms of bloat, etc. Called Pulse Dosing and Salt Loading.
Any other questions?
