Detox Time Frame
OK, so based on the fact that I have more and more cherry angiomas appearing on my chest and stomach, I've come to realize that I am probably iodine deficient.
I am 56 years old and have had fibrocystic breast disease for years.
I also have thinning eyebrows and thinning hair, but my thyroid tests have always come back "normal".
MY QUESTION IS THIS: I am doing Dr. Brownstein's detox for bromine: the Iodine, Celtic salt, Vitamin C and Magnesium. But 10,000 g. Vitamin C a day?
That sounds like alot ! So how long should I keep taking it?
The cherry angiomas are bromine poisoning caused from eating bread products preserved with this chemical. See cherry angiomas.
According to Dr. Brownstein's protocol on page 177 of his book, "Iodine - Why you need it and can't live without it., he suggests a higher dose of vitamin c from anywhere from 3,000 - 10,000 mg. per day. He states that the only side effect from the higher dose may be diarrhea. The excess vitamin c is released from the body.
How long do you continue with this? I would say when your hair starts to grow back, you body is telling you it is beginning to heal.
I hope this helped.
