I just spent $100 on seaweed & an assortment of seaweed snacks at Amazon.Com. I will be reporting on which tastes the best. Please join us at the Iodine Thread:
to share your your experiences with proper iodine levels in our body. SMGI already reports enhanced energy and increased libido 10 days after taking iodine supplements. I'm still a long way from my iodine stain lasting the full 24 hours on my skin test. I just reached 4 hours this week from 3 minutes 4 weeks ago.

"Some clinicians have also found the use of NON timed release niacin useful, as it helps liberate toxins from the fat. However, relatively high doses of 5,000 mg are needed. These high doses need to be slowly worked up to as niacin will cause flushing. However, about one fourth of people are simply unable to tolerate the niacin flush. Please avoid timed release niacin as it can potentially lead to chemical hepatitis."
I was curious about this because it sounded interesting I've heard of Niacin flushes before but not chemical hepatitis induced by timed release niacin. I am not taking any at the moment but may in the future and some may be taking it now so I was curious about it. This is from an article written by Dr. Mercola.
I'm gonna go google chemical hepatitis heh .

Today I purchased some Fueru Wakame Dried Seaweed. 1 pound for $3.99. I put a 3/4 cup of the dried with water and it exploded into 5-6 cups of hydrated seaweed. Wow. It is pretty good with hot water as a soup by itself. Somewhat salty. I plan on making some brothe tonight and will add the hydrated. First experience with seaweed. I like it.
I've been on the iodine thread to read and catch up but need to go back and finish. I will share my experiences as time goes on.
Tell me about a salt flush. I know about using detox baths & activated charcoal for getting toxins out when overloaded, but not this.

Scroll down to Salt Loading Protocol. I've never had to do it. I took Lugol's 5%; 8 drops, 50mg/day for a little over 8 months, with no apparent side effects. Except that I feel fantastic, brighter, more alert. I don't know how it works with me not having a thyroid. Am I converting more T4 to T3? I just don't know.
