Lugol's Iodine
As I finished week 2, I'm up to 7 drops, and plan to hit 8 or more in week 3. 8 is recommended. Not much else has changed during this process.

Week 2 : Supplement Routine
  • 6 drops Lugol's Iodine (3 in the morning)
  • Companion Nutrients:
    - 2 selenium (400mg)
    - 2 magnesium (1000mg)
    -1 zinc (25mg)
    - 6 vitamin C (6000mg)
  • B2-Riboflavin 2 tabs (200mg) - morning and evening
  • Niacin 2 tabs (600mg) - morning and evening
  • ALA 2 tabs (600mg) -both in the morning (with the vit B and Magnesium)
  • Milk thistle 3 caps (750mg) - 1 with each meal
  • Dandelion 3 caps (1.5g) - all 3 at lunch time
  • Others :
    - Gymnea sylvestre tea - 2 heaping tsp in 1 cup hot water, steeped for 4 min.
    - Cranberry supplements - 2 caps with meals, as needed

Physical Symptoms Endured:
colored text = new
  • Runny nose / post-nasal drip
  • Abdominal pain to the right of the naval began after beginning 5 drops of Lugol's. Lasted for a few days.
  • Sharp pain, level 4, associated with UTI or prolapse. Difficult to discern.
         Taking cranberry tablets and correcting posture. I've been slouching.
  • Continued lower back pain (kidney area)
         Drank more water. I notice when I don't drink 2 liters, it gets worse.
  • Strange bump appeared on the top of my left ear lobe (navicular fossa) where it would cause a great ache if I laughed or talked; which was brutal as my boyfriend likes to make me laugh. Lasted several hours. (I've had the candida bumps behind the ears before so figure this was related.
         Immediately applied Oil of Oregano, and the ache was immediately subdued, and gone the next day.
  • Noticed lots of veins on my ear lobs on the last day. Its not normally that visible.
  • Had a sensation of 'disconnect' all week. Played computer games to distract myself otherwise, it feels like I am in a wavy dream state. (Even now, as I write.)
  • Been pale a few days this week. Not a normal color for me.
  • Yellowing of teeth, paleness of gums (saw this 2 days out of the week)
  • Week was full of loose stool; but this time, murky in color, too.

    Emotional Symptoms Endured:
  • This was also the week of my cycle, so many things compounded. It's been a long time since I was that moody. My cycle is also now 2 days very heavy, and about 4 days barely there. I read that candida can cause someone to enter early menopause. I was perimenopause at 26, hair thinning and everything. =/
  • On the last day of the week, which was yesterday, I felt very blah and a little gloomy.
         Writing a letter to my friend who is also struggling in life and who has similar faith is helping me recognize how fortunate I am in many areas. That, and talking with my boyfriend, reminds me how far I have come. I use to be in constant pain and doubled over all the time. So even though it doesn't seem like I'm healing, I am. The fact that I can even sit up enough to type is proof. Thank you, God, for those blessed people.

    (R, letter will be late.)
