I can’t stress the importance of the co-factor supplements (vits/trace minerals), when upping iodine. There is a well thought out Co-factor list for iodine supplementation. I got horrible side effects before taking selenium……but, this page leads you to the entire iodine supplementation protocol.
One suggestion is to embrace this is going to take some time, perhaps 12 to 18 months to recover from…..trying to push things too far too fast can set you back. Everyone makes mistakes at first and it takes some time of trial and error to figure out what’s working for you. That’s why the protocol doesn’t have firm time tables between stages 1/2/3…..it depends on each individual and how their bodies are reacting, et al.
It’s none of my business but, perhaps explaining a little more about what effort it is going to take and how important rest is to your lovely hubby might elicit his compassionate understanding and get him to help out a little more with chores or whatever. I think most of us can relate to how most people just don’t understand what a candida suffers. And believe me, this is much easier to beat as a team with a healthy partner, than living alone and solo’ing it like my life circumstances require.
Congrats on your lil one and may the lord bless you as you desire for a new addition to the family. Peace be with you.
