    From the top of your iodine references document: "90% of America is severely iodine deficient". So, most people are iodine-deficient, therefore most people "may be at risk for iodine-induced hyperthyroidism" according to the document you quoted. Yet you chose not to include that bit, even though it followed on from the bit you did quote & is very relevant. I think that speaks volumes.
    Any objectivity you had on this topic has completely gone.

    As I'm on Grizz's ignore list, perhaps someone could point this out to him? He really needs to address this and explain the apparent paradox, as he is determined to peddle the mega dose Brownstein protocol as being the one, the only and the essential "protocol" for everyone.

I'm still not convinced this high-dose w/cofactors isn't too dramatic and potentially harmful (for me) or even unnecessary especially when I'm (now) eating real, clean food instead of processed and losing so much weight.

    My Dr has twice reduced the dosage of my thyroid med... but solely due to changes in lifestyle and subsequent & continual weightloss. If I'd started with other extra supplementation or self experiments at the same time, I would not have known what has been causing the continuing spontaneous remissions/improvements of my conditions.
    Those confounded confounding variables again!

    I'm sure that a low dose of iodine is better than none - and almost certainly better than too much! I cannot believe that excess is simply removed in urine. A quick google search produces lots of sites which state that it can be toxic in large doses, and I'd rather believe scientists than someone on a thread like this who has some distinctly questionable beliefs himself.
    Yes, Dr Brownstein saying that there is a CRISIS doesn't make this a problem that you necessarily have.

It's written on the back of my kelp tablet bottle "take 2 tablets per day with or before meals".

    If I had only read his reply to my question about the long term dangers that said "the excess just gets excreted" I would assume there's no such thing as iodine poisoning or dangers to high dosages.

    No, another randomly grabbed site to support a hypothesis that I am becoming progressively more wary of.
    So glad that I didn't start on mega doses as I was tempted to - BELIEVING that someone had actually researched the info that was being put out.

    Like all sups, I think if you take them at all, take small amounts unless there is a sound clinical reason to take larger doses - like some of the cases on here.

    (I know Grizz can't see this - fortunately, I'm on his "Ignore" list - there is something so relaxing knowing that I'm not going to get a response full of capital letters, bolded letters and "Kappish"s". )
    Yes, Grizz insists on calling my healthy diet that includes seafood and sea veggies "The Dr. Kruse Protocol". Hah. I was eating this way back when Jack Kruse was still fat.
    It is nice to be on his "ignore" list isn't it?

    I think I just can't handle that much iodine. I found a thread on Curezone about forearm lesions that no one could really solve and now I'm wondering if that is a sign of iodine overload. Anyway, it was for me. I'm going to take the iodine urine loading test soon and figure out how much iodoral I'm going to continue with.
    Sensible plan. Get tested first, then supplement cautiously.

    "Tiny red spots" could be any number of things from insect bites to allergic reactions to cancer. Or maybe it's an iodine overdose. Since when did you graduate from medical school Grizz?

Sea Gift brand & Annie Chun's brand of Roasted Seaweed Snacks.
    Grizz
    They are yummy but read the labels carefully. I don't know about Sea Gift but IIRC Annie Chun's are made with canola oil. Also look out for MSG and preservatives. I was pleased to find that the Seasnax brand was clean.

    Maybe somebody could tell Grizz this since I am on the official out of favor with the High and Mighty list.

    Fibrocystic Breasts Cured, Inoperable Fibroids Cured
    ======================================
    Q) Long time lurker coming up with a question about salting....
    Some background, I've been following the high Iodine protocol via Breast Cancer choices, with the standard supps for the past two plus years, due to fibroids, hypothyroid, systemic issues, and long term mercury damage. I had 34+ Amalgam fillings removed (yes, practically every tooth!) and I'm 44 rounds into ALA only Cutler**. Last year I replaced the 150mg iodoral with SSKI, averaging 15 drops a day. I take selenium, Vit B, magnesium. Good news, boobs don't hurt anymore, ultrasounds show the inoperable fibroids are utterly gone! only one ovarian cyst left, still hypo, but still deranged transport...

    Just recently, though, I have a problem with salt loading. Even from the start, I couldn't stand the taste of salt in water, so I put salt in capsules and would take two at a time as a salt load. Been working great for well over a year. Recently, when I take the salt, I throw up.

    I want to salt load, because as I go through the ALA rounds, I revisit bromide dumping, and the headaches feel so much like they are bromine-driven. Any suggestions? What gives?

    =======================================
    A) Great update; keep it up until the rest is gone.
    "Been working great for well over a year. Recently, when I take the salt, I throw up."
    -for me that is a sign of to much in one go; the body reject it.
    Your body is wise, follow it :-)
    Magnesium chloride (mag oil)is an option for the bromide detox; this can be taken transdermally or as a supplement or both.
    In addition to salting your food deliberately.

    Does this look like your condition?

    The BAD NEWS is that these little devils are very difficult to get rid of. The article describes a few procedures to get rid of them, so let us know if these procedures work. I have one of these on my chest, and I can say that applying Lugols 5% iodine directly does NOT get rid of it.

    Grizz
    Hey Grizz. Nope They aren't cherry angiomas. Mine are not bright red but redder than the surrounding skin, wrinkled in appearance but small - maybe an 1/8" across, the older layer of skin peels off of them so there is a thin circle of dry skin around each one. They did not go away with pulsing doses or salt flushes like all my other detox symptoms.

    Good call. Sea Gift is sesame oil and Annie Chun's is both sesame and canola.

    I know that I've spoken to this before but it bears repeating...
    There are different types of Flouride.
    Processed products are going to contain added flouride. That can be bad.

    But natural foods (vegetables, fruits, meat) get the flouride in them from natural calcium flouride from the soil.
    Yes, there may be some residual flouride on the surface of produce from it being washed, but you can wash that off yourself in water that is not fluoridated or chlorinated...
    The majority of flouride in natural foods is there from natural cal flouride in the soils because farmers do not use treated water that they have to PAY the city for to irrigate, nor to water farm animals.

    Naturally occurring cal flouride should not be a concern.
    We evolved consuming it right along side of naturally occurring bromine and iodine.

    Thanks Grizz. I had already found that slideshow a while ago and none of them fit. I found this thread on curezone Thread: Spots on forearms - Help! at Iodine Supplementation Support by VWT Team (ThreadID: 1164881) I have not been able to find pictures of iodermia (sp?).

    Some ads from CureZone Sponsors at the end of the above piece about all that nasty fluoride. It seems like the idea is to sell everyone on the idea of how "dirty" things are and then be standing right there to sell them the "cleanse". It's kind of like when the person who sells you the wax also sells you the wax remover.

Doesn’t hurt to have some magnesium in the picture too as D3 likes magnesium too.

    I described my first experience with K2 mk4 on Curezone a few years ago.

    I had been taking Iodine, D3 and magnesium taurate at the time I started with 15 MILLIgrams of K2 mk4. Wow! My sinuses were clearer than I remember them ever being in my lifetime. I could actually lay my head flat on the bed and "breathe" through both sinuses!

    I know. I know Some will blast me on my next description. But don't knock it if you haven't tried it...
    My gums and teeth felt like glassy velvet. But within 25 minutes I achieved a teenage woody that only an early pee run to the toilet would relieve. (I am not trying to be funny), I am trying to describe what I felt. After a few days the libido effect waned and I had to reduce the K2 down to 5 MILLIgrams a day to re-establish super libido. I just do 1 milligram with a teaspoon of coconut oil 3 times a day now. (The coconut oil or olive oil helps the K2 to absorb better). Many ladies report how smooth their facial skin feels, when starting K2, and how it helps them to sleep.

    Vitamin K2, MK-4, is used to carboxylate MGP proteins that do the calcium scavenging in arteries and soft tissues. It also seriously boosts the building of stronger bones and reduces fracture rates without making dramatic increases in BMD measurements. Taking more Vitamin D3 also increases the amount of calcium handling proteins requiring more Vitamin K2. There is research in progress to qualify Vitamin D toxicity as actually due to under carboxylation of the MGP and other proteins.
    There is some debate about which is better mk4 or mk7. Some folks choose to do both and that is fine. I personally have taken both and I like mk4 best.

    P.S. I take 3 tablespoons a day of coconut oil, now to try to get my HDL higher.

    t2t
    Hi t2t,

    I'm behind on my thread reading right now, so my apologies if you've already answered this elsewhere, but what brand of K2 do you take? I have been taking Green's Pasture's Blue Ice Royal Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil blend for awhile now, and haven't noticed a difference in the feeling of either my teeth or skin. I was thinking that maybe I should be taking the products separately, as the blend only has 1/3rd butter oil, which is where the K2 is. I'm wondering if I'm missing out on the benefits. I also stopped taking krill oil since I'm getting the fermented cod liver oil.
    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    t2t, just saw your post about K2 brands. And maybe I'll come across this info too, but am at work and want to make sure I get these questions out there before I have to stop reading! How much K2 do you take daily?

    Thanks!
