Over Emotional Due To Iodine?
February 3, 2016
I’m not sure whether i’ve always been this way, or whether it’s more recently ive noticed it, but I have emotional swings to the extreme. My mind goes from positive to negative like the electricity supply, with surges and declines in energy along with it. The slightest thing can set my eyes watering, or send me into a rage. It appears as though i’m on a tight rope constantly balancing out my feelings. I have also noticed a constantly pounding heart beat recently more than usual.
After a quick search I discovered that my recent bouts of brain fog, and depression could be caused by Bromism, which is when bromide is detoxed from your body. This could be correct, as I have been taking Iodine for a few weeks, and the other day, I accidentally gave myself an overdose. As taking iodine is as simple as dropping it into water, a slight distraction can cause 2 to 3 drops into a stream. I did not want to waste it, so drank out down anyway.
A protocol called salt loading will apparently work to get the toxins out the body. This is the method;
- 1/4 teaspoon* salt dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water, then followed immediately with 12-16 oz pure water.
- Repeat in 30-45 minutes if needed. May repeat again until copious urination begins.
- Observe subjective response (usually within several hours).
*Unprocessed sea salt is preferred. Be sure to ask your doctor
before implementing this or any medical strategy.
*Iodine Investigation Project participants have found 1/2 teaspoon
salt dissolved in water works faster than the 1/4 teaspoon dosage.
