All of the symptoms I've had (tight throat, popping ears etc) have come and gone in one day each so far. I have been having some interesting differences in my TOM which came early again. Lots more tissue than usual. It's like my uterus is getting some serious house-keeping! I also had a tubal 18+ years ago and I do have Estrogen Dominance. I read that a lack of iodine contributes to excess Estrogen so I'm hoping the Iodoral will help along with the other things I also take for it such as DIM & Natpro progesterone cream. I'm feeling quite well otherwise.
    Good for you! Yep, the uterus gets involved in detox, too. Thanks for keeping us posted.

    • Have my answer from the Iodine Yahoo Group - Iodoral would be best.

I can't recommend the brand of iodine that I was using because I recently learned it comes from "zein" which is corn. It's the Prolamine Iodine by Standard Process. It's iodine only. This brand was also on the list of brands to avoid in an iodine protocol pdf posted here a few times. What I'm tossing out there is continuing to use just iodine (but a quality brand) and either use no iodide or a smaller amount to help your endo issue without worrying about your thyroid for now.
        Well, this is an idea I would certainly like to find out more about, and honestly, would make me feel more comfortable about higher doses. Are there any links / references that back this up?

          justaseeker,

          Thanks for checking that out. Okay, here's what I found out. DH doesn't remember if he had chicken pox. I said if you had it you would remember, I remember mine to this day. I have the scars (and shingles) to prove it.

          His erosion is on the upper third of his stomach, not right on his esophagus. I apologize for not clarifying earlier. When we went in last time, he was given a prescription for Omeprazole 40 mg. Is that the PPI you were talking about? Well, he had a bad reaction to it, horrible diarrhea and nausea. He has taken Prilosec OTC, but quit within a month. Do you think he just needed to give it more time? As I have said before, he is a man of little patience.

          He also has a mild hiatal hernia. One of his big issues is bloating, a feeling of "blowing up" as he calls it. I think that could be acid or food allergies but unfortunately they didn't address that this time.

          Oh, and that detailed blood work came in. THAT was interesting, and I'll post about it separately.

            I didn't research it...rather I shared my experience of using iodine only before realizing that my thyroid needed the iodide. I believe my female parts still benefitted from the iodine even though I really needed iodide too for my punky thyroid.

              I find this interesting, but can't fathom why it would be so. Has anyone else found this?

              The symptoms for me, at an extreemly small dose, were very full on. Enough to make pause.

                Dr. Abraham has several papers that discuss this notion. You might start with this one.

                    Oh, yeah! I remember mine. The reason that I asked is that there is some notion that chicken pox early in life is associated with low stomach acid in later life. No idea why.

                    Thanks for explaining. That's one PPI. There are other prescription PPIs that might work better. I really don't know about a stomach erosion - if its the same as one in the esophagus. Has he been tested for h pylori?

                    • Taking a break from all supplements for several days - however long it takes for my stomach to settle down and my urine to clear. Then, I'm going to resume with a different approach that might be easier on my stomach.

                        Chicken pox at 8-9 years age here, and low stomach acid. But increasingly better.

                        What works:
                        Enzymes + HCL (I used the NOW-brand, better than enzymes alone)
                        ACV – 1 teaspoon in water before each meal
                        And I believe iodine helps as well. I just to lugol's now and that seem to be sufficient.

                        Anyway - hashimoto's and low stomach acid/poor digestion goes hand in hand.
                        And also - there are som papers on iodine and that low iodine may lead to a weak stomach acid.

                        Not the best papers, but I don't have the time for a more thorough reserach now...

                            That's interesting about the association with chicken pox and low stomach acid. To be sure, I told him to ask his mother when he sees her this morning. He does remember having the mumps. Also, when our kids had chicken pox he didn't catch them, so I would have to imagine he did. He is just blocking the memory!LOL

                            Yes, when they found the erosion they tested for h. pylori. Negative.

                            I hope your break goes well, and when you get back to it, your stomach doesn't get flared up.

                              I never had the chicken pox so when I was pregnant I was a bit worried but after testing it showed that I had been exposed to the chicken pox, I just didn't break out.
