The CYA is common sense. There is a lot of info here and that is all it is info. Follow it or don't at your own risk/test/health/decision. It is up to you to make your own decision and if something goes wrong it falls on your shoulders.
There is some over zealous posturing that should be toned down IMHO as there does seem to be three main protocols suggested by doctors from mild to the extreme. From the low dose Dr Davis (who I don't think suggests much else in the way of supplements to the full on-board Dr B who has it all mapped out. All up to the individual as to how they are going to proceed/or not.
Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
Don't forget to play!
Research implies that there is careful investigation happening in a scholarly manner, such as by using the scientific method and controls.
What you posted is a clear case of n=1 self experimentation.
You have hounded on around here about the necessity of following a Doctor approved protocol many times, and now you have some anonymous Joe off the internet who's ideas on nuking himself with massive doses of iodine you are promoting.
Yes, by posting it in an encouraging light you are promoting it.
Also... it there a reason why you need to bring all of these posts from a completely separate message board to this one? Can you not simply say "Hey, for anyone who wants to read an interesting n=1 iodine story... here is a link to another great site."
I simply don't understand the need of all of the non-evidentiary clutter.
Posting something besides personal rants from other websites might be more helpful to people who really want to research iodine use.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
And to say 'My friend Dr Kruse "- friend - really? Does he even know that his name is being used - possibly even taken in vain???!!!
If you don't like my posts, may I suggest that you put Grizz on Ignore, then you won't be bothered by them anymore.
Besides, you complain about anything & everything and you give me an Excedrin Headache . Maybe I will put YOU on ignore ;--))
Are you like this with your BF or husband? How can they stand you?
If you don't like the information, then don't use it. Trapper has done a great deal of hard work for iodine, dedicated 5 years of his life, and you sit there NIT PICKING this brilliant man ? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU ?
Can you contribute anything at all positive to this group? Or is it to be nit picking & negativism for the rest of our natural lives?
I know the answer, so your next outburst of negativism, sorry to say, but YOU are going into my IGNORE list. No one has ever been put on my ignore list in years, and you could be the first.
Breadsauce, ditto for you. Just put Grizz on your ignore list.
You may be MUCH happier joining the other iodine group dedicated to pure research:
Yes that is a MUCH better group for you.
Here is another group for you unhappy ladies to join, also dedicated to pure research.
Either stop complaining or go join one of the above groups.

HOWEVER, for those who are very sick, getting into the high doses very quickly may be necessary, and worth dealing with the detox symptoms. Luckily, I am not battling any serious illnesses, I just have a few niggling health issues that I'd like to resolve, but I have the luxury of taking my time.
Reading things like that over at CureZone when I was first starting my iodine journey is what prompted me to start with higher doses than I was ready for. I was seriously ready to forget all about iodine after that until I found this thread, and your iodine guide, Grizz, which advocated a low and slow method of titration. Since I've been doing it that way for the past couple of months, I've felt better than I have in a long time.
I did not say anything negative about Trapper at all... except that he is not a doctor and is just an anonymous person, which is simply an accurate observation, and that encouraging the use of his new way of doing things goes against your own mantra of "Follow the Brownstein protocol" as has been specified many, many times in this thread.
I'm not being negative at all IMO.
I'd simply like to see the information that is posted here labeled correctly as what it is, either actual scientific research OR n=1 experiment/anecdote.
I believe that labeling things correctly will help the people who visit this thread distinguish different the types of information presented based on validity, and help them in their decision making process.
Appropriate labeling of information as either science based evidence or n=1 anecdote is something that is encouraged in most every discussion on this forum, unless it is noted in the topic that is purely an opinion based subject matter.
I see that as a positive.
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
