The tight feeling in your throat is your thyroid, when it is searching for iodine it swells because it is filtering your blood trying to find the iodine it needs. I had the same problem until I upped my dose and then it went away. My husband also had the same problem, later in the day he would notice it swelling slightly and I told him to take more, he did and the swelling stopped.

Try adding some when it starts feeling that way, doesnt have to be a lot if you don't want to because of detoxing, but try a 1/4 tablet and see how that helps.

Pattyla I will look and see what multi I can find for you...

I've got a multi. ::

Thorne Basic Nutrients IV
click here to see a list of all products and click on the product to see ingredients.

I'm having that lump in my throat feeling too. Talked to my nutritionist tonight about it. She suggested I play with my iodine dose and see if I felt better on a lower dose or a higher dose. She said that the higher dose I'm on the more I'm detoxing but also the more iodine in my bm protecting my nursling from the toxins. She's pretty conservative about what is safe for nursing.

I've read and reread this with all the supplements and seems like a lot to take. This is all OTC, right? Can it be purchased locally and where or is it all online purchase? What possible overdose?

So on a whim I decided to double my iodine dose to 50 mg. I feel so much better! I can't believe it. I'm still really tired but I think that may just be my adrenals trying to recover but I really do feel much better on a 50 mg dose than I felt on 25 mg. I've still got that lump in my throat but I'm hoping it will go away. It seems slightly better today but that could be wishful thinking.

does your lump come and go? Mine is more like a feeling of pressure that come and goes...

My lump is pretty constant but I do think it is lessening. I did not have it until about 3 weeks into using the iodine.

FTR I feel really good now. I'm not sure if it is increasing my iodine to 50 mg, my new multi or starting gensing but whatever it is I'm not changing anything.

I just wanted to post back about the multi, I remembered that it contains no common allergens but have been so busy I didn't double check I just took Pattyla's word that my multi had corn, I thought she'd seen it somewhere or something....

Anyways this is what the manufacturer says about One 'n' Only


"Contains no sugar, yeast, gluten, dairy, corn or other common allergens and is suitable for vegetarians."




Ok so I just updated myself with the new postings...

Glad to hear you're feeling better Pattyla! That's wonderful news! Keep us posted, I'd love to hear about your path to healing!

Ok so saw doc about my throat he's it's not my thyroid but reflux. He said my throat is red and swollen. His advice "cut out gluten" says is number one cause for reflux. Just wanted to give update

Try some ACV, water kefir, carrot juice, sauerkraut juice to improve stomach acid, thus digestion and I agree with the doctor. (don't get to say that often around here, lol)

do you have info on how gluten can cause reflux? My husband has horrible reflux but does not believe it's diet related (or that changing his diet could help).

I'll try to do some searching. But, basically, the proteins remain undigested due to inadequate stomach acid, causing pathogenic bacteria and their toxins to build up gas. The gas regurgitates up into the esophagus. That is my understanding of the physiology of it.

I'm not a doctor, nor do I play on on MDC. I can't say what anyone "should" do. *I* drink a bit of water kefir about every day. The others listed will similarly improve stomach acid. Water kefir also has the benefit of whole food probiotics in an acid medium.

Maybe a teaspoon or tablespoon before meals.

Ask on the allergies forum or in swaps for kefir grains.

If you're gonna take ACV first make sure it's Braggs, thats the good brand... then, dilute it with apple juice and you wont be able to taste it, otherwise be prepared it's horrible tasting!

Lots of people have also had wonderful success with aloe vera juice, I used it for dd when she was having reflux and it went away. Heal the gut, eliminate the refulx and that's exactly what the aloe vera juice does.

I wouldn't do a fruit juice with the ACV BEFORE a meal. The ph is changed by the juice. Juice ferments in the stomach with fats and carbs, alongside. The ACV is to improve (ie. increase) stomach acid, to help digest the food.

Fruit is ideally consumed separately, other than with greens (in green juice).

Just finished this thread. I started selenium a few days ago and i have more energy. I have started feeling pressure in my throat though, i know my body is searching for iodine.
I want to start iodine, but am hesitant because i wonder if i have hashimotos...and dont want to worsen it, since someone posted a link here to an article that stated it would be like pouring gas over a fire. (iodine for hashimotos)
sigh.....
I really cant figure out if im hypo or hashi. I have a doc appt August 11th but dont feel like i can wait that long without treating myself. Thats why i started selenium and zinc, i just couldnt take the crappy feeling anymore.
Oh, and i suspect i have adrenal issues too.

Thanks for all the input ladies!
