I had a mammo scare myself (one little piece of dense tissue which showed up as asymmetry).
I have normal thyroid (according to last bloodwork).
I wanted to try Logol's and the protocol, but to be honest, it sounds very dangerous if you do it wrong. Is it okay to just up my iodine and flush out the bromine gradually rather than give myself scary symptoms?
If we eat primal, does that reduce our intake of Bromine? What does your body do if it's not getting either iodine or bromine?
At the moment I use Sea Salt with Sea Veg (company from Maine) on my eggs every morning, 240% RDA iodine. Is this enough, or do I need to shock my system with tons of iodine?
By the way, I now take 4000 IU vitamin D (Bluebonnet chewables). Is that enough?

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
