Re: Iodine induced goiter, how long does it take to get rid of it?
Thank you Trapper, really appreciate your input.
I am sorry I didn´t include more details, if I described everything I have tried my message would probably be unbearably long to read for some! :)
I take selenomethionine (always has) 200mcg from Pure encapsulations or Thorne, I have tried to increase it, took 600mcg at most for a few weeks with not much impact on the goiter - do you think I should try 800mcg (or even go up to 1200mcg) while being on 100mg Iodine
I research my supplements a lot, only buy the ones without magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide or other unnecessary additives, I have also tried different forms of magnesium (which one do you recommend?), at the moment I am mixing my own food grade magnesium chloride and take it in liquid form.
Last year me and my partner embarked on a Candida diet for half a year, no Sugar
of any kind and very low carbs, no gluten, only in the late summer we started reintroducing some low Sugar
fruit to the diet and some more of the foods that were eliminated before. We eat 2 meals a day, we naturally switched into intermittent fasting and this whole candida diet has created the habit of eating a low carb diet, no processed food and we usually have meat and veggies, we love avocado, eggs and we bake our own buckwheat bread.
You mention avoiding broccoli and cauliflower - I tried it briefly last year but maybe I have to do this for longer.
I will read up on the red meat and beef liver elimination diet.
We have also done the Hulda Clark
's anti- parasite
program, kidney cleanse
and liver cleanses.
I drink mostly distilled water, I do sport and I consider myself generally healthy, this is why this goiter baffles me.
So I gather you believe I should keep going with the iodine?
Is pulse dosing appropriate in my case or should I take it every day?
I am really tempted to stop for a while and see if the goiter goes away... but then again if this works it will be disappointing as I do want to continue taking Iodine.
