FWIW, when I first tried the iodine protocol I started with 1 drop of 12% lugol and gradually built up the number of drops until I reached a tolerance level above which I started getting strong headaches. I then adapted the number of drops to a level that I could tolerate when taking it regularly.Thanks! From the table it should be 16 drops to reach 100mg a day (the 5% lugol solution).
@Romain512, I second what Altair and the others before have said. While reading the whole thread may sound like an arduous task, you will learn a lot from the theory that has been posted and the experience shared by other members who have gone through the process already.It is VERY much if you just start doing it. Read the whole thread carefully as suggested, otherwise you can damage your body.
Better at least one week depending on your symptoms. Here is an article which you should read in any case:I guess i will start with just one drop and increment of one drop every three days.
I would also like to draw your attention to the importance of taking cofactors in parallel with Lugol's.I thank you all for your answers.
The problem is that i dont have the time to read so much.
I guess i will start with just one drop and increment of one drop every three days.
1/2 to 1 tsp of sea salt in a tall glass of water upon arising.
Lugol's (start with lowest dose) after breakfast or meals, don't take it after 4pm (it energizes you).
200 mg of B2 (riboflavin) per day. Can be taken in two doses with your lugols.
1000 mg of B3 (niacinamide) taken in two doses with lugols.
200 mcg selenium (not more!) ONCE a day with morning dose.
3 to 10 grams of vitamin C - divide into two doses taken an hour after lugols.
500 mg of magnesium - glycinate is excellent - taken at night.
Protect the liver with NAC, ALA and/or milk thistle.
If your first objective is to decalcify your epiphysisI bought a 5% Lugol Iodine Solution (Liquid). I try to decalcify my pineal gland because i can barely sleep at nigth
Water quality is as important as food in avoiding fluoride calcification.Also i am on a carnivorous diet and with no supplements so there shouldnt be any conflicts with foods or chemicals, it would be just an easy adaptation process.
Are you eating gluten?A follow-up on my previous post about using iodine with a nasal irrigation squeeze bottle, (a plastic neti pot).
I'm really learning the value of this tool!
I was experiencing a headache. -I get them every few of weeks, and I always used to believe that they were caused by not stretching enough during or after long periods of desk work where I find myself leaning over keyboards and such. -And while I believe there is definitely some validity to this, I noticed some months back that diet had a lot to do with it.
That is, if I slipped and ate a bunch of grain product, I'd experience bad aches in my neck, shoulders and head. -Whereas if I stuck to a high fat diet, I could go for many weeks without issue. So perhaps, I thought, I'd become very sensitive to inflammation reactions due to grains.
That was a big reveal for me, and in testing it out, I've learned to trust the bio-feedback. Eat that tasty cinnamon bun, pay for it hard the next day. After a bit of testing, I realized that the results were consistent.
My most recent episode...
I weakened and ate a bunch of high carb Christmas treats which were gifted to me, and like clockwork, began to suffer. (Like a big dummy.)
I got through the worst of it, (about 36 hours of misery) but found that a nagging headache remained, one which followed me around for the next couple of days.
Aside from promising myself to pay attention this time and avoid cinnamon buns (and banana bread and shortbread cookies and brownies. -I swear, the old ladies in my building are trying to kill me!) While observing the pain, I noticed that unlike a normal headache, this lesser nagging ache existed in the forward part of my head, just behind the eyes.
Totally unrelated to this, I began experimenting with the neti pot and a light iodine solution. I noticed that the nagging headache vanished very shortly after using it.
Later the next day, I noticed that same ache was coming back, and I thought, "Waaaait a moment! What if that ache is related to some kind of nasal infection?"
So I did another neti pot flush, and pow! The ache vanished almost immediately.
So.., I'm thinking that some kinds of head ache are in fact related to pathogen load in the nasal cavities and are unrelated to muscle stress and inflammation.
This discovery, I think, has the potential to become a useful new health 'tool' in my bag of home remedies.
That and learning how to say, "Thank-you, but No" to little old ladies bearing paper plates.
Gluten/wheat is probably the top food to avoid. It makes sense that you feel terrible everytime you eat gluten. Maybe read Wheat Belly or Grain Brain.Honestly, I couldn't even say exactly what gluten is.
I would assume, if it's a component of grain-based foodstuffs, then.., "yes". -When I'm being stupid.
Generally not, though. I'm actually pretty good about eating mostly animal fats and meats.
Besides gluten, additional components present in wheat, rye, barley, oats, and their derivatives, including other proteins called amylase-trypsin inhibitors (ATIs) and short-chain carbohydrates known as FODMAPs may cause NCGS symptoms. NCGS stands for non-celiac gluten sensitivity.Gluten/wheat is probably the top food to avoid. It makes sense that you feel terrible everytime you eat gluten. Maybe read Wheat Belly or Grain Brain.
