    The 400mg magnesium and 1,000mg vit C are like the size of horse pills. I seriously have trouble swallowing those damn suckers. I wish there was a magician to transform those into a tiny multi vitamin i can swallow easily.

    Lizzy,
    I second your wish, and I also have trouble swallowing them.

    And I also wish that Bloodorchid gives us the brand name of his magical "Good Multi"
    I am waiting in breathless anticipation.

    Maybe, Grizz, you haven't been able to find a multi vitamin that has everything in correct mounts - is that you need both vitamins and minerals. I saw some a few years ago, subdivided into multi vites and multi minerals (a multilevel sales item) that probably would have done it. But here again, not in a single pill. And they were expensive! Taking a handful of pills doesn't bother me too much, although once in a while I go on strike and hold off everything for a day. I also stop my iodine (now up to 8 drops of 2% Lugol's) for one day a week. Just because. ;-)

    Paysan & Bloodorchid,

    I am eagerly awaiting any suggestions on a multi brand name to replace what we are now taking. It would be nice to also provide us with a link to such multi.

    Thanks for the suggestions,
    Grizz

    Here was my morning attack dose of everything:
    1 tbsp. of coconut oil in my coffee
    15,000 IU D3
    25 mgs of Lugol's
    15 drops of grapefruit seed extract mixed in with 4 grams of chlorella
    1 tsp. fermented cod liver oil and butter oil (usual dose is 1/2 tsp.)

    After an hour or two, I noticed that I was starting to feel better. By the afternoon, my fever was completely gone (it had been around 102 when I woke up in the morning). I had the chlorella and GSE 3 more times, as well as 2 more Tbsp. of coconut oil throughout the day. I also gargled a few times with warm salt water (celtic sea salt).
    In the late afternoon/early evening, I started to feel exhausted again, and the fever started to come back. I had an idea that it had been the iodine that had made me feel so much better. So I took another 25 mgs, and sure enough, within a few hours, the fever was dropping again and I was feeling a bit better.
    I went to sleep early, taking another 15,000 IU of D3 before bed.

    The next morning I woke up with only a slightly increased temperature, and a little bit of tiredness and sore throat. By the end of that day, it felt like I was not sick at all!! On the contrary, I had a lot of energy and felt great!

    I was due to increase my dose, but have decided to stay put at 6.25 mgs for a few more days, due to the 50 mgs on Wednesday.

    Iodine really is amazing stuff!!
    Hindsight really is 20/20. So while I effectively knocked out whatever was beginning to plague me, I paid the price for those 50 mgs of iodine on Wednesday! On Friday, I woke up feeling exhausted. I was lethargic and had brain fog all day. I chalked it up to still fighting off the sickness. Saturday and Sunday brought more of the same, including some anxiety and depression. I figured out by Saturday that the high dose of iodine had released a load of toxins into my blood stream which my body was not ready to deal with! Yesterday I could smell the bromines being excreted via the oil in my scalp. Since the salt flushes have never worked for me, I've been employing every other method that I can think of to deal w/detox. I've been drinking lots of water, have been taking extra chlorella, employed dry skin brushing, long hot epsom salt baths and a coffee enema. Today I am finally starting to feel the fog lift some, thankfully! I have been so innately content for the past couple of months, that losing it again, even for a few days, has been painful! I'd actually rather be sick!
    Now I will know for next time - I'll employ every other secret weapon in my arsenal against sickness, but my iodine dose will stay the same!

    PaleoGirl,
    Thank you for the update ! WOW! Jumping from 6.25mg to 50mg caused all of that detox? I don't see anything wrong with the other things you did. I'm glad you are feeling better.

    How do you think you became loaded with so many toxins?

    I take 2 x 200 mg magnesium so they aren't so big.

    I found a bottle of vitamin C crystals instead of the pills. One teaspoon is 4000 mg and it dissolves right into a smoothie.
