    Too much, too soon can cause an attack on the thyroid- that's why so many Hashi's patients feel like shit when they try to do big doses.
    Has Chris changed his stance on iodine for Hashi's? I thought I read in the past that he said it generally was not a good thing??

    I think he's slightly modified it. He did caution that people with Hashi's need to be really careful and go slowly, take selenium and that there are some that can't tolerate any at all. He doesn't want them taking the big doses that a lot of people use, though.

    I've started adding small amounts in the form of seaweed back into my diet (I've been on selenium for so long that I'm positive my levels are decent!). So far, so good, unlike the times I took actual iodine, which either did nothing or gave me hyper symptoms like rapid heartbeat, insomnia, etc.

    Why shoot up B12 when the sublingual works so well so quickly? Just be sure it's methyl, and keep on taking it.

    Anxiety, moodiness ... you can get magnesium through the skin as well. Make a warm bath (sorry, Doc ...) and put epsom salts and magnesium chloride crystals in it. Soak a good long time. You might feel ever so much better. Then sleep in a dark room, because the least bit of light will instantly turn off your melatonin production. The first dose of the Jarrow B12 instantly changed my sleep -- instead of waking after 6 hours of shallow sleep, no matter how tired I was, I woke after 12 hours. My mouth was dry because it had been hanging open. I had a feeling for the first time in years, sort of like I'd been molded INTO the bed. Really DEEP sleep! Probably the most instant and noticeable improvement from a supplement EVER.

    It took several days to settle back down to seven or eight hours a night. I must have been totally exhausted.

    Not to say that methyl B12 will do this for everyone -- obviously, for me, it had been the most-lacking requirement for making melatonin at night.

I almost fell asleep at the wheel with my kids in the car numerous times, this was what prompted me to go to the doc in the first place. I am still taking the meds - when I remember (I have a problem with remembering to take all my meds/supplements) but I would like to taper off and stop if it will hinder my overall progress in healing myself from the inside out.
    You must be very low on cortisol.

    to help/cure:

    circadian rhythm (sleep/wake up/food)
    cold thermogenesis
    pregnenolone----->progesterone ---->cortisol


    there is more

    I've been working on sleep hygiene for a while now. I have blackout drapes & sleep in a pitch black room (no electronic glow allowed). I have been taking melatonin most nights. I had to take it to counter the crazy 2-3 am blast that LDN gives me. FWIW after the first week of the LeptinRx, my sleep has been rock solid. It has been so good I'm thinking about ditching the melatonin. I've started dreaming again. AND I wake up before the alarm goes off in the morning. This response makes me think my body needs the LeptinRx.

    The only night that I didn't sleep well in the last two weeks was the night I took a cold bath before bed. That was a crazy experience!

    I second the epsom salt baths - they have been kind to me and my itchy twitchy muscles. I also take liquid magnesium at night that helps with sleep and with muscle cramps if you are prone to those.

    I assume he doesn't take any insurance? Is he a decent "hack?" It would be almost a 3 hour drive for me, but if he's worth it I'd definitely travel.
