Iodine: 90 percent improvement!

I feel like such an idiot. I’ve lost the better part of the last ten years of my life due to constant migraines and crushing fatigue. Thyroid meds gave a short lived boost (like so many other things; well approx 6 other things) and then back to pretty darn terrible. During the latest blood draw to check thyroid levels (maybe my 10th ever) the naturopath added a check for iodine levels. I was at 25% of recommended target levels. My ND recommended kelp snacks which seemed to not cut it so of course I googled. Been supplementing with iodine caps/tablets (favorite has tyrosine added) and the first day hours after taking first capsule, I cleaned my entire kitchen for the first time in, ever. That was about three weeks ago. I’ve since, among other things, taken my son camping twice. Last trip with his ADHD friend. Many other milestones. Excited for the possibility to get to live some normal life rather than limping along feeling like rip van winkle as the world passes by. Fingers Xd.
