My understanding is not this. My understanding is that the antibodies are there, under the skin and iodine can aggravate the antibodies. The antibodies sit there under the skin, sort of like dormant plants in winter, if iodine intake is high enough (depending on the individual & the # of antibodies remaining under the skin) then it "triggers" the rash to flare.
That's a lot of vitamin D!
In term time I basically produce rabbit pellets 😂 unless I go heavy on the polyols. I practically self-medicate with sugar-free sweets…
The UK supplement market is quite different to the North American one, I think. For now I'm going to hold off on supplements till I know what's going on (hopefully not celiac disease…) and I can talk to my psychiatrist. Thank you for all the info!
Wanted to give a dosing idea with b-vitamins, magnesium, and vitamin D.
I take 1tbsp each of Liquid Health Energy & Stress and Neurological Support with 1 drop 2000iu vitamin D twice daily in a warm beverage before meals.
Magnesium can vary and what is best depends on your bowel habits. If you do not have Diarrhea, and you do not use the restroom at least once a day then you need magnesium Citrate (Natural Vitality Calm) dosed to tolerance. Starting with 2g (1/4tsp), up the dose another 2g a day til you get loose stools then back down the dose 2g. I would take this in the mornings if ou can or in the evenings before a meal.
If you have daily BMs, I would suggest Doctors Best Magnesium glycinate, 1 scoop should do it once or twice a day checking levels. Can be a bit scary or a bit fun, with this one you know if you reach a good dose by your dreams. It will give you VERY vivid dreams. I personally go of citrate and go to glycinate with my gut is a mess like now and the nightly dreams have been quite good.
These are what I use, I will admit I sometimes take an extra dose of the B vitamins at lunch. The liquid and drink mix in nature of these is what I love since I take enough pills as it is.
