Curious to see how many here have done/started the iodine protocol that Ksman talks about. There’s a ton of literature out there on it with a lot of it being controversial. Some functional/integrative Docs swear by it.
What kind of results have you seen?
How long did you stick with protocol? Did you start out with large dosages or ease your way up?
I started it about 10 days ago…ramped up to 20mg pretty quickly, definitely had some detox-like symptoms which I was trying to flush with real salt, vit c, b-complex, magnesium, etc. Thought i had bad reaction with detox when woke up 30 min after falling asleep with racing heart, anxiety, etc. Now thinking it was more likely the adrenotone supplement my Dr had me on, as I had taken one at 6pm and one at 9:30pm before going to bed. Dr. said it can definitely cause surge of energy and anxiousness and it’s not recommended to take after 6pm.
Anyhow, I’ve started back on it, very slowly, just about 2.5-5mg per day and gonna stay this way for a good while before thinking about moving up. The whole process seems confusing, unproven, and somewhat scary. If you look at other message boards, so many people have mixed results. There are multiple groups on Facebook, etc with people doing this protocol and having bad detox reactions, on it for years, etc.
I decided to do it after having low temperatures (low in AM and not rising too high), lack of reflexes, and cold hands/feet. Lab work seemed okay, although my rt3 was a little on high side. My Dr wanted to put me on Armour, but I want nothing to do with meds.
Just curious if any others have tried and what kind of results are out there.
