Grizz, did you go from 2 mg kelp tabs to 12 mg Iodoral tablets? I ask because I've read in a few places that people should stay at each dose for at least a week before doubling to the next level. 2 mg, 4 mg, 8 mg etc, with a couple weeks at each dosage. One source even said a month at each dosage. This is to prevent a rebound effect on your thyroid (where it loses efficiency or something like that). Anybody else read the same thing?
My next question is about bromide detox. Is this something that everyone starting up with Iodine experiences, or just some people? I have recently started iodine and currently at 1.2mg and a few days after starting came down with a bad headcold and lethargy. I assumed I caught my husband's cold but could it be bromide detox? My runny nose, sinus ache and low energy are on the list of possible symptoms. Of course, it could just be a cold.
I'm a quitter...but I'm back now.
