Re: just starting iodoral

The support nutrients will be important to you. You might already be on some of them. Selenomethionine 200 mcg, magnesium 400-800 mg, vit C 2-4 g, B complex 50-100 mg. Drink at least the amount of water in ounces equal to half your body weight in pounds. You can add 1/4-1 teaspoon of salt to that -- drink throughout the day or split into two doses. Or, instead some people prefer the salt push when they're feeling very bad. It helps bind the bromine so that your kidneys can clear it out.

Salt Loading Protocol for Possible Bromide Side Effects

Orthoiodosupplementation induced and increased mobilization of bromine from storage sites,
with increased urinary excretion of bromide. --Guy Abraham, MD

Certain iodine-literate doctors feel the bromide excreted by iodine therapy can be eliminated
more efficiently by the chloride present in mineral-rich unprocessed sea
salt. The salt is added
to water in a specific way. Eating salty food is not
effective. Table salt is only used in an

Many iodine takers found the Salt Loading Protocol devised by Dr. William Shevin (and
presented at the February '07 Iodine Conference) to be
effective in eliminating the side effects
such as bromide sedation, acne, brain fog, brassy taste, mouth sores, frontal
headache or other
symptoms which occur in a small percentage of patients.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water.  Follow 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).

  • Iodine Investigation Project participants have found 1/2 teaspoon salt dissolved in the
    recommended amount of water works faster than the 1/4 teaspoon dosage.

    * Pulse dosing of iodine has often helped our participants with detox symptoms:  taking a 48
    hour break from iodine supplementation as needed seems to enhance the kidneys' ability to
    excrete bromide. These are only our observations as educated patients. Consult your own
    physician about your particular iodine regimen.

    No consensus exists on how important the salt loading may be to an iodine
    therapy strategy if the patient does not have adverse symptoms.

    Be sure to ask your doctor before implementing salt loading or any medical
