Diatomaceous Earth + Iodine: My 30-Day Trial Day 7
I also noticed that the skin on my face is much smoother. This is significant, because the only way I've been able to have smooth skin is to use exfoliants such as Vitamin C serum and a scrubbing sponge, which I have not used lately. The skin on my hands and arms is also very dry and scaly, and while it seems a little bit better, I'm going to go back to taking my coconut oil for that. Eating coconut oil really makes you skin beautiful. I don't get the same effects by applying it directly to my skin, though. It soaks in, but doesn't plump it up the way eating it does.
Increasing the Dosages
I upped the dosage of diatomaceous earth to 1.5 level teaspoons today, and upped the dosage of iodine to two drops. As for the iodine, the bromine detox breakout has stopped, but it may come back with this higher dosage. I've been putting the iodine directly on a few swollen finger joints, and it has started staining my skin, which usually means it isn't soaking in, so I'll stop doing that for a few days. I have noticed a little reduced selling in those joints, but they have a long way to go.
As for my goiter, it hasn't changed much. It's smaller in the morning before I take my iodine, but then it swells to try to soak it all up. I'm expecting it to be larger for awhile after I increase the dosage, but I know that once it is saturated and getting as much iodine as it wants, and has pushed out all the bromine and fluoride, it will start working properly again. I feel like it has already started working better, due to my increased energy and better mental focus. Of course, that may also be the diatomaceous earth working. These two seem to work very well together.
I'm going back to taking my multi-vitamin and B-complex today as well. I cut out all supplements until I could see what the DE and iodine were doing, but now that I know they are definitely working, I will add those back in. I'll add the others back in a few at a time after a month of this protocol to see if they make any difference. As to my hair, I want to see what the diatomaceous earth will do on its own before I add back the biotin and CLA.
So that's it for now. I'll report back in a few days. In the meantime, if you would like to try diatomaceous earth, you can order it from Amazon. It is listed on the My Favorites widget on the left sidebar.
