Lugol's Iodine Stage

(Updated 9/28 - accidentally mixed up chanca piedra and gymnema sylvestre tea)


The first stage for me consisted of Lugol's Iodine, the companion nutrients, additional supportive supplements, Concentrated Mineral Drops and treatment supplements.

  • Lugol's Iodine - started with 1 drop; graduated to 5 drops in water
  • Companion Nutrients 
         - Selenium, 1tab
         - Magnesium, 1 tab
         - Zinc, 1/2 tab ( My first time using a pill cutter! ^^ )
         - Vitamin C, 3 tablets
         - B2 Riboflavin, 1 tablet
  • Niacin, 1 tab
    Celtic Salt, 1/2 tsp or more (i add to food, but its really awesome)
  • Multivitamin (Gynovite), 6 tabs - 2 with every meal
  • Concentrated Mineral Drops, 2ml
  • dandelion supplements (taken according to directions)
  • cranberry supplements (taken as needed for UTI)
  • chanca piedra caplets (taken according to directions)

Additional stuff : witch hazel, hydrogen peroxide, tea tree oil, Vicks, virgin coconut oil, gymnema sylvestre tea tea leaves (drinking 1c a day to stop candida from morphing into fungal state)


Physical Symptoms Endured :

- 20+ bug bites (Not sure if it's a 'no-see-um' bite or if it's the candida. Either way, it is a supreme itch that's still going on! 
          cleaned with witch hazel, tea tree oil, sealed with Vicks. Doesn't work as well as heat/cold, but need to buy a hair dryer. More on this when I can get a better handle on it.
- pain in right knee if bent all the way
- pain in left wrist (went away on days 3-4)
- multiple small bumps at the base of my skull behind my ears (def the candida) treated with virgin coconut oil
- some inner ear itchiness
- inner ear 'twinging' or involuntary clicking
- constant runny nose or post nasal drip (I imagine this will be a regular thing)
- urinary tract infection, treated with cranberry supplements
- brain fog
- constipation / threat of hemorrhoids, treated with witch hazel
- various stomach pain


Emotional Symptoms Endured :

I was moody on day 3 and depressed on day 4, day 5-7 was sleepiness and lethargy. I mean, I had never taken a pot to eat out on the couch before. That was new to me. o.0
