Your body is fine at clearing out toxins on a daily basis even on a crap SAD diet.
    Actually i would disagree. Most skin disorders, digestive disorders, allergies, etc are caused by a backup of toxins and/or organs not functioning correctly. That would mean that most people are not "detoxing" properly. I think most people will have at least some issues just because of the world we live in. Toxins are literally in everything and our bodies are not adapted for it.

    Sounds like your hormones are doing a variety of interesting things there.

    I'm inclined to agree with Hawkward that the 'Bromide detox' is at least possibly an explanation for self-induced iodine overdose. Possibly it's a symptom of Bromide elimination.

    Some vitamins and minerals need to be eaten balanced with others (e.g. A/D, O3/O6). So maybe your problem is that you have unbalanced some of your intakes? Is it possible that you are getting too much of some of them? (e.g. Vit A)
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Hey MM, I don't get excessive amounts of iodine... I eat shrimp a couple of times a week and occasionally eat sea weed but that's it really!

    That's interesting about the balance of vits and mins... The main differences to my diet are that I've normalised an excessive dairy consumption, am eating loads of bone broth, have upped my intake of starch (rice, bananas, potatoes) significantly, and am supplementing Vit D and Calcium. Other than that, I was eating pretty well already - I've just increased the quantity of everything.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    A liver loaded with toxins has impaired function and basically does not do a good job at detoxing anymore. This can cause other parts of the body to go out of whack too (often hormones) and then it results in more imbalances.
    At some point your body will just not be functioning as it should.
    Even as you continue to eat and live well. Living in the year 2013, you bet you will be running into toxins at least from air. But possibly also from things like. Ooking utensils, pots and pans, even cooking itself creates some toxins the body needs to be able to handle.
    I did an herbal detox (supplements) when I felt diet was not getting me anywhere and certainly did get benefits from it. I have collected all test results before and after the detox.
    Some want to tell us that herbs are a new thing, but nature medicine has been around for ages and in the middleages to early 1900 we had some great naturopathic knowledge that we lost and replace with chemical drugs nowadays.
    Currently eating strict Paleo, no rice or potatoes. I want to increase carbs and make sure my ratio of carbs, protein and fat is right for me.

    Lemmings don't commit suicide, they migrate. During migration, some die. Seems like organic population control.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I think they're pushed - did you see that one turn around and try to run back? LOL
