"Other thing about my periods is that Iím still spotting between periods."
Years ago, a member of the paleofood list wrote that her spotting stopped when she stopped eating wheat.
Also years ago, on a CBC radio program a historian said that women began wearing underpants shortly after modern wheat milling was invented. (It seems that the wheat (flour) particles are so small that they can pass through the walls of the gut undigested, and do bad things to us.)
I've been doing Iodine about as long as you, similar experience except there is a lot more pain from a severe back injury in 1980. I sure hope that this is a healing crisis, because it's been hurting since midwinter.
