Because iodine was not supplemented much before the last six years, few physicians have
had a chance to look closely at the occasional symptoms which arise from iodine
supplementation (still called "iodism") and raise questions.
following suggestions helpful if bromide detox symptoms were not tolerable. Consult your
doctor before implementing the strategies below:
Bromide Detox Strategies
2. Stopping iodine for 48 hours to rest the kidneys.
3. Reducing the iodine dose temporarily, then working back up.
4. Taking several grams vitamin C spread out throughout the day along
with the Iodine Companion Nutrients.
5. Drinking more water.
6. Pulse-dosing (stopping and restarting iodine therapy.)
7. According to Iodine users with skin symptoms, adding 25 mg zinc often helps.
Iodine-related bromide symptoms may include but are not limited to:
tingling in hands or feet
dark thoughts (e.g., there is no reason to live)
depression (e.g., there is no reason to get out of bed)
mouth and tongue sores and cuts or "sore mouth"
"different" acne,"bromide acne," "acne-like eruptions" without "coniform." (Some iodine
users found zinc helps bromide acne.)
leg and hip ache (feels like arthritis)
odd swallowing sensation (reported in old medical literature as "swollen glottis")
body odor (bromos is Greek for stench)
unusual urine odor
ureteral spasm, frequent urination (mistaken for urinary infection)
breast tenderness (transient symptom reported to resolve)
