This blog is on Iodine.

Over the last year I’ve gone on and off iodine; the same outcome/experiences repeated. This is what it was like:

If I take anything more than one drop a day I get very clear symptoms. The symptoms include throat pain, headaches, even joint pain and upper back muscle pain, and neck pain which causes more headaches. It feels a lot like the flu. The most annoying symptom is the headaches and muscle pains, and sometimes bad breath, or a sorta metallic smell that only you can smell as if it’s your skin but really no one else can smell it.  The symptoms can last any where from 2 days to 1 week.  This is more likely to happen if one doesnt drink enough water or take vitamin C.   However, before theses symptoms set in, I experience more energy than usual, enough to keep me up at night and not feel tired the next day. This lasts for about 2 days then the detox symptoms start.  If I take mega doses of vitamin C the symptoms are reduced or can be eliminated. However the best way to take iodine is slowly and carefully.

The best way to take iodine is very slowly, I mean to take one drop every other day for a week, then one drop a day for 1-2 weeks, then go to 2 drops daily. When symptoms show up (you know you went too fast) stop the iodine and take vitamin C then start over. You can build your tolerance this way.

Three years ago I was taking 4 or 5 drops a day with no symptoms. I also was feeling healthier and my weight was much better than it was when I wasn’t taking iodine.

All the above was referring to the TPCS Iosol iodine, not other brands which I also have used. Other iodine brands did not/do not have the same clear symptoms (side effect, or detox effects). I’ve taken a multitude of different iodine supplements such as J Crow lugols 2%,  Optimox Iodoral, EuroPharma Terry Naturally Tri-Iodine, Life-Flo Liquid Iodine Plus, and Marine Bio Therapies Liquid Potassium Iodide, and I can take much more in amount/quantity with lesser symptoms than when I take Iosol Formula II.

J Crow lugols 2%,  Optimox Iodoral, EuroPharma Terry Naturally Tri-Iodine, TPCS Iosol Formula II, Life-Flo Liquid Iodine Plus, Marine Bio Therapies Liquid Potassium Iodide .. which is better, symptoms vs. no symptoms, good, or bad?  I am not sure

I have come across details on what symptoms relate to which heavy metals, that info linked specific metals to specific symptoms such as the headache, the location of the headache, the smell, metallic taste etc.

Also, I can’t forget to say that iodine helps reduce weight via different channels, such as speeding up metabolism, supporting the thyroid (more energy, better metabolism), and with detoxing which allows the body to get rid of fat (the body stores toxins in fat when it’s unable to detox on it’s own).

I have just started today back on iodine, took 1 drop. I’ll follow the steps above and gradually increase. I already have had more energy all day long, tried napping after lunch but couldn’t sleep, and i am smelling a metallic smell that I cant pinpoint where it’s coming from.

That’s all for now



Until next time

Stay well
