Thanks for the well wishes. I feel MUCH better today so at least I know that I am going in the right direction now. I read up on how Iodoral is prepared so that it prevents gastric upset. I compared it to the Iodine 2 Plus brand that I am taking right now. Its possible that changing brands would be helpful so I ordered the 12.5 mg dose size Iodoral. I already have the 50 mg size Iodoral but I want to start the titrating process over again with the Iodoral.
I am also adding another 1/2 tsp salt salted water which I will take in the PM. When I take take the Iodoral I'll take one AM and one PM - which means that I need to start eating twice a day not the once per day/IF that I am doing now. So, I'll start following Jack Kruse's leptin reset directions for an early high protein meal. Until this little flare up my blood sugar was normalized anyway and my body composition is changing noticeably so its probably time to change my eating pattern anyway.
I'm also going to divide the support/companion supplements into two rounds - AM and PM. That way I won't be loading my stomach all at one time with so many capsules. Plus, I'll take my salted water just before my meals when I take my enzymes and that way it will be paired closer with the Iodoral. I am placing the Iodoral in a spoonful of coconut oil to coat it/my stomach.
Last but not least, I am going to do the 5 day on/2 day off pulsing method - with ALL of my supplements as well as iodine. However, I will continue the salted water as usual on the 2 days off. Its taken nearly 48 hours for my urine to clear of the heavy detox so I feel that not only will my stomach rest those 2 days off, but the detox will continue on for most of those 2 days anyway.
I hope this plan works because I am more and more convinced that I need the iodine therapy or I will always have stomach and other issues. And, I am now facing the reality that I may indeed need to have the mercury amalgams removed from my teeth or it will be an uphill battle to stay detoxed. Well, one day at a time.
