    Thanks for the update. There is another good book to read if you haven't read it called...

    The Iodine Crisis: What You Don't Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life .... by Lynne Farrow

    I'm taking 150mg's and along the way, I've been having gradual improvements, but more noticeable improvements with dramatically less PEM after I workout.

    A definite YES on reduced PEM. I know I have more stamina and strength and overall less brain fog. (Though you wouldn't know it, sleep is still messed up with the lack of light.)

    Glad to hear you are able to work out.

    Edit. Another thought that is intriguing: I read that the blood supply is filtered through the thyroid every 17 minutes. As iodine kills many pathogens, it is an important nutrient to have at proper levels.

    Has anyone managed to decrease MCS symptoms, especially hypersensitivity to odours by using iodine?
