How could one be allergic to iodine? Wouldn't they just be set up to die? Our bodies fail without iodine so I don't see how you could live very long without it. That would be like being allergic to water...or air. How sad.
I knew someone in high school that was allergic to water. Our municipal water, anyway. And someone allergic to grass.
I've decided to try this detox thing, sort of. I just don't feel as sharp as I should. I just had my first cup of salt water. I have kelp flakes that I add to broth and other foods, And I add a piece of kombu when i make broth and soups. I plan to watch my blood pressure though as some people are more sensitive to salt and a few years ago when I was brushing my teeth with baking soda, my blood pressure went up. Unless we can find info on reducing this sensitivity. I know about potassium, but I eat plant foods all day long.
I also have chlorophyll supps and will step up the greens even more.

Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing
. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear
Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.Diet effects acne in so many ways
: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
