I ate some kelp and about an hour later a new zit pops up. Considering my skin had finally started to settle down with a strict diet, I was kind of peeved. Just to make sure it wasn't something else in my diet, I waited a week and ate some more... (more)
Just how much iodine is too much? Some seem to think it's pretty much "the more the better" within the realm of reason. People point out, for instance, that the Japanese get many many times more iodine than Americans. I've been supplementing... (more)
Can kelp supplements cause or trigger an dormant autoimmune Graves disease, and what actually causes Graves disease? Is it something like grains, which can cause like Hashimotos also responsible for Graves, or can it be caused by other things... (more)
After finding out that my worsening sebaceous cysts are probably caused by an Iodine deficiency I have began to supplement. I am currently putting kelp granules (Laminaria Digitata) onto all my food, as well as taking a 250mcg Potasium Iodine... (more)

I have been taking vitamin D3 and zinc just after breakfast. Lately, I've added vitamin C, K2 and sea kelp. Is it better to take some with lunch and some with dinner, or all at once? Since adding sea kelp, vitamin C and K2, my libido has... (more)
I'm kinda craving of some noodle soup and wonder where to get kelp noodles other than Whole Foods? I don't have one nearby and the closest one is at least 30-45 mins drive which I won't do just to pick up one thing. Or other online... (more)

Just wanted to see people's feelings on this. So, yours truly has been for many years has been dealing with symptoms that pointed to possible hypothyroid (cold feet/hands, cold intolerance, sluggish bowels, fatigue, thinning hair) and yet all my... (more)
