    Warm! Thank you, Iodine!

    Primal Fuel
    So I took 300 mcg of iodine....and my toes and fingers warmed up a treat. I got toasty toes and fingers....I rarely have toasty toes and fingers.

    Bwahahahahahahaha!

    Maybe supplementing with iodine will fix this permanently....*off to read Grizz's posts on the iodine stuffs*

    iodine caused a few forum wars but it really is a useful supp, topically and internally
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    That's great but please be wary of some of the extreme quantities being advocated in Grizz's posts. Yes, we do need iodine but too much is just as harmful as too little.

    One of the best ways to supplement iodine without overdoing it the opposite direction is to get iodine from natural sources like sea veggies and shellfish.

    Thank you, Paleobird and bloodorchid! I greatly appreciate the input of knowledgeable/experienced folks like you.

    With regards to dosage, I'm not looking to take great whopping spoonfulls of the stuff. I'm looking to stay at 300-500mcg in additional consumption on top of current diet. I would prefer to consume it naturally, but I'm a bit cautious about seaweed. A lot of the stuff I see has labels in a foreign language. I like labels that I can read. As far as fishy things....I'm not a big fan of anything that isn't in sashimi form and sashimi is kerspensive. I'm working on it, but the smell of cooked fish just doesn't appeal.

    I know, I know...this lady doth protest too much.

    If you have an undiagnosed autoimmune thyroid condition (or if you are developing one and are unaware of it), supplementing with iodine could make things worse. Iodine for hypothyroidism: like gasoline on a fire?

    Thanks for the heads up, serenity!

    I'm making an effort to eat 2-3 raw brazil nuts for their selenium content. That should mitigate a portion of the risk.

    I was tested for autoimmune issues 2 years ago and was found to have no issues despite having similar symptoms to the ones that are currently prompting me to try out iodine: cold hands and feet, sluggish brain, fatigue, irritability.

    I take large doses of iodine, only temporarily as I build up my stores. I was tested by a functional med doc and mine was very low. Before you go taking large doses you should read up on it a bunch, there are other nutrients you need to take if you are taking large doses of iodine. FYI, the dosage you posted is nowhere near where I think you need to worry about this stuff, but if you are deficient in selenium taking large doses of iodine can exacerbate thyroid issues. Here's a great, rational discussion with Chris Kresser and Chris Masterjohn from Real health radio on iodine.

    LOLs.

    Grizz was advocating megadoses of Iodine, while his detractors were advocating moderate doses of Iodine.....

    The amount you are supplementing with isn't even the RDA, less than even the 'moderate' people from the Iodine thread supported.

    I'm happy you found something that works for you.
