Iodoral Is Amazing - 2011 (continued from 12-26-10)

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jan 23, 2011

Just went to my MD this morning (endocrinologist, who I notice is listed on Breast Cancer Choices doctor list for iodine use in breast cancer patients, and who is willing to work with Hashimoto's patients using natural thyroid medications, plus advises gluten - casein - soy free diet for hypothyroidism, etc.) and I took my lab results from 2 days ago. Complete Blood Count, Blood Chemistry Profile, Lipid - Cholesterol Profile, Thyroid Panel. Every single test was in normal range except Cholesterol (240 although HDL was 94) but Dr. says Hypothyroid patients can run a little high and it will improve with treatment for the Hashi's condition. Bottom line: Dr is OK with my taking 50mg Iodoral per day, says I am doing well and do not have to come in for 3 months (was on 2 months apart visits for awhile recently, pre-Iodoral). I feel the best all around I have ever felt in my life, and am on less thyroid medication than immediately pre-Iodoral - it had been only T-3, 50 mcg per day split in 2 doses and I felt rather crummy anyway (now 75mcg Levo generic T-4 and 25mcg generic T-3 split up 4 times per day in quarters). [Dr. says take more T-3 in cold months, less in summer.] I hope to gradually improve my auto-immune situation and get my T-4 to T-3 natural conversion working. Have lost weight, 5-ft-5-in 130 now, vision improved, feel optimistic and have improved skin (less dry and not splitting or excessively sweating anymore). At original Hashi diagnosis Nov 2007, I weighed 154, was eating a lot of gluten and dairy foods, felt horrible and totally fatigued, and the standard Rx, plain T-4 from insurance co. dr. just made me feel worse. It has taken almost 3 years (since July 2008) and going GFCFSF and working with this new dr., going on Armour Thyroid for awhile (until it became scarce and then reappeared horribly reformulated and it made me worse!), adding in T-3 and now Iodine to get to the point I am at, and I do T-Tapp and take long walks outdoors (unless icy like recently here) and do two-at-a-time stair climbing 25-30 floors (when icy) so it takes a multi-faceted approach I believe, and working closely with the proper dr. Iodine should be tried by everyone but do the lab work before, during and after, work with medical doctors or highly skilled others with proven track records in treating thyroid disorders, and get free of the toxins as necessary beforehand. (Dietary and environmental such as typically found in cleaning products in this country, etc.)

Excellent No Fragrance Liggett Bar

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Aug 10, 2011

Having been a user of Liggett's shampoo bars in the past, I am now returning to it and find it has improved tremendously with the addition of more types of oils and being basically fragrance free. Washes much better and lather is great now. It beats any liquid shampoo and you are not paying for water - just your own anyway. I have long hair and it works great, you do not have to have short hair for this.

Only Taking One Per Day Due to Unpleasant Qualities

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jul 07, 2011

Sort of using this as a daily supplement rather than doing the protocol it suggests, not sure of how much good that will do (may take longer). Unable to face taking more than one per day due to taste and aftertaste etc. A;so tends to nearly cause gagging although I admit I am hypersensitive in throat area. Occasionally have had to just chew it up and go on, due to not being able to swallow it whole.

Terrific Product for All Those Aches and Pains

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jun 20, 2011

We both like this in our household. To make it tolerable, though, we have to put it in almond milk and add vanilla liquid stevia (NuNaturals is a fine one) and gulp that down post-haste. But anyhow, it is a magnificent supplement for removing my back pain and seems to be giving me more energy and better sleep. Significant Other says the same. By the way, we do not noice any garlic taste as mentioned by others (we do eat a lot of it in meals, so that may be why, who knows).

Significant Other Liked It a Lot

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jun 13, 2011

I had high expectations based on reviews, and it was not bad, or deleterious. Might have had some slight effect. The other person in the household found it indeed enhanced mental acuity and was highly indignant when I was not planning to order another bottle immediately to have as a spare. I will be ordering another one this week and all will be devoted to that person's use. Note: A brand that featured the patented or trademarked Opti-MSM, ordered at the same time as the P.S. reviewed herein, was extremely excellent; very effective for BOTH of us.

Works OK No Problem

This is kind of a neutral item, and not too glamorous. It works well.

IsoCort -- Take for Energy and Support

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jul 26, 2011

As a person with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypothyroidism and autoimmune condition) I find IsoCort helpful for keeping my energy levels up when fatigued -- only a couple pellets in a day but sustains and uplifts without having to resort to a lot of caffeine or prescriptions. Not necessary every day but keep it handy. With hypothyroidism one can experience a sort of sudden drop off of energy and onset of tiredness and IsoCort fends this off.

Strangely I No Longer Crave Artichokes

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jul 07, 2011

When I used to see artichokes in the produce section, I would want to buy and devour several (although not planning those vegetables in a meal, say). Had to tell myself, no, too expensive, too much trouble to cook, etc. Craved artichoke hearts in cans also. Well, since taking 2 or 3 of these capsules a day, I have not really thought about artichokes at all, or desired to get any cans of them. As far as effects on any health issues, have not had cholesterol checked since starting these, but eventually will get that done again and hopefully it will be lower than before. Might be helping the bile production situation, unsure of that, no problems in that department that I know of anyhow.

Best Melatonin I Have Found

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Aug 10, 2011

I do not use this every night, but keep one on the bedside table, and if I wake up in the wee small hours due to whatever issue, I just take this and go back to sleep pronto. Smooths out the rough patches of the night, I say, and I recommend it, does not take more than 1mg and sublingual is fast.

DMAE -- Liquid

Posted by Reviewer2237173 on Jul 26, 2011

We like DMAE around here. Internally and externally (well, this liquid is used by me for both purposes and in addition there are some capsules also available for internal use only). Anyway, I find it to be helpful for skin, and add it to my regular potions and lotions, and also take it for having interesting dreams and hopefully cognitive benefits.
