Grizz, that's great news about the hair regrowth! I had read that about iodine before. I hope it's true, because in the past month I have been shedding a really excessive amount of hair. After doing some research, I think it might be due to my ADHD med (Vyvanse). Even though I was taking it for almost 4 months before this shedding began. I'm trying to go for a chunk of time without it, but it's been rough going the past few days. Especially as it was masking the depression that I've been dealing with off and on for the past several months. Though I've been through some bouts of depression since I was a teenager, it's never hung around this long, or gotten as dark and negative as it's been at times recently. The ONLY thing I've been able to connect it to was getting the rest of my mercury fillings removed (they were the biggest ones, too). No special precautions were taken, I just asked to get them taken out and replaced with the white composite. It was like a lightning bolt struck the day that I thought the depression might be due to the mercury fillings. I checked out mercury toxicity to see if I was on to something, and sure enough, I was!
I have a feeling it's going to be a long journey with me and iodine, but hopefully I'll start to see some benefits without having to go through too much detox!
I'll just have to keep reminding myself that the way out, is through.
