Diatomaceous Earth + Iodine: My 30-Day Trial Days 2 thru 4

Days two and three of my diatomaceous earth protocol were non-remarkable. I had a little bit of cramping right under my ribs, and felt a little nauseous when I ate breakfast, but nothing to shout about.

Something I forgot to mention before is that I am also taking 1 drop of 5% Lugol's iodine daily too, but I know what the side effects of that are, so I try to separate them. However, some of the detox reactions may also be from bromine detox, so I'll make note of that when I feel I must.

Today, Day 4, I upped the diatomaceous earth dosage to 1 teaspoon. I noticed now that I am definitely having some detox and die-off symptoms. I'm feeling sluggish, brain fogged and generally just tired, despite having had a perfectly good night's sleep and eating well today.

I'm not taking my supplements while using the diatomaceous earth, but today I had a lot to do and just could not function, so I took a multi-vitamin, a dopa-mucuna capsule, some D3 and an L-tyrosine capsule. Dopa-mucuna is supposed to supply energy and L-tyrosine is the natural equivalent of Adderall, or so I've heard. I just took them about 3:30 pm, so I hope they don't keep me awake tonight. Coffee doesn't seem to be doing me much good.

I can't say much else has been happening that I can directly attribute to the DE right now. Haven't noticed any improvements in my health, but I imagine that will take awhile. With the cold weather, my lupus is flaring anyway, so my joints and muscles are achy. That also may be because of bromine detox. I had a really bad day yesterday after walking 2 miles round trip to the grocery store in somewhat chilly weather.

I'm report back after a few more days at 1 teaspoon and see if there is anything to report.
