I just restarted taking iodine (400mcg of magnascent Iodine) a week ago and now I am starting to wake up at 4 am, I generally feel a dull exhaustion throughout the day and I can fall asleep just fine, but then I wake up at 4. What nutrients have helped for this symptom?

I am taking b complex

magnesium (600mg)

selenium (200 mcg)

B2 (400mg)

b12 (5mg)

I eat liver every 2 weeks and I think I am out in the sun enough to get vit d this time of year.

 

Thanks!

The supplements I know of for supporting iodine etc are

Vit C

Selenium

Sea Salt

It is my understanding that these help rid the system of the bromide and other stuff that iodine causes to detox.

As for your sleeping/exhaustion issues, how are your adrenals? I ask b/c I had this same thing before I started adrenal support b/c after testing I learned my hypothalamic pacing of adrenals was off - I had marginal HPA Axis during the day (causing exhaustion) and then my adrenals tried to rally at night while I rested, causing a burst of cortisol production which kept me awake. Of course it could something else in your case, but just wanted to offer in case it helps.

What do you use to support adrenals? I'm almost certain my adrenals are stressed.

I use an herbal formula called AdrenoBoost. I had to use cortisol replacement for awhile when my adrenals first tanked, but I weaned off and now I'm doing really good w/ these drops.
