Iodine cured EMF sensitivity for me!

luvmytnk
Hi everyone!

I hope this can help someone else as I know how hard it is deal with EMF sensitivities.

I suffered for 2 1/2 years from EMF sensitivities. It was triggered when I purchased a refurbished computer. After a few weeks I began getting electric shocks on my fingers using the mouse and it progressed rapidly to feeling like electricity was surging in my body, especially up my spine, dizziness, anxiety from feeling scared of the symptoms, difficulty with driving (mostly when stopped at stop lights, heavy intersections were the worse), stings in the brain etc. Just being in my kitchen made me feel ill and this was so hard because I enjoyed and loved cooking for my family. The kitchen is loaded with EMF. Even a dishwasher not in use sent my EMF meter off the charts as did the stove top when in use, fridge, coffee pot and counter radio with digital clock. I eventually learned to unplug some appliances but it didn't help with the massive ones causing the problems still.

Symptoms happened everyday for me and as a mom it was very hard to manage through life but luckily I did find the strength to do so. No one except my husband knew I was suffering with this. I am the type of person who always likes to help others but feels independent and never asks for help myself. I don't like pity either. This is not something I made up in my head for attention. I hated that my husband knew but I had no choice but to tell him because he would see me almost pass out or how drained I look after a simple trip to the grocery store. With this disorder I felt so helpless because I had no way of controlling it. Yes, I could limit my exposure to things but in my life there was no way to get away from it. I still had to drive, my kids still had the right to watch TV (on the big large plasma TV my husband would never get rid of) or play video games, I still had to sleep in our electric water bed, I still had to use the stove to cook on, the fridge still needed to be on, I still had to go to the grocery store and buy food for my family under the intense electric energy of AC, lights, freezers etc. I could never get away from electricity in my daily life, it would be impossible. I had no choice but to live with these sensations and put on a smile for my kids even though my quality of life had gone so downhill.

After the earthquake happened in Japan there was a lot of news about taking iodine for the radiation. I never paid attention to this nutrient and so I did some research. I could see that I lacked it in my diet since I never salt my food and because I'm the type to skip meals and not eat a lot of one particular food I didn't consume iodine rich foods often. The fact that iodine was being used by medical community to protect against a form of "radiation"...and that EMF sensitivity is also form of radiation...AND I was lacking this essential nutrient all made sense that maybe, especially with my sensitivity my body was begging for it. I'm sure the two forms of radiation are completely different but that was my thinking anyhow.

I purchased Maine Coast Sea Seasonings Organic Kelp on Amazon.com and began sprinkling it on one meal a day, everyday (I do it for breakfast so I start my day with it). You don't need a lot of this stuff...1/4 tsp provides 2150% of iodine. So just a tiny sprinkle will do, you can't even taste it.

I honestly didn't expect it to help, but even so made sure I consumed it everyday because it was an important nutrient I now knew I was deficient in. In less then a month I started noticing an entire day could go by without having one dizziness or electric sensation in my body / head. I was driving again and not feeling sick while doing it. I could be at a stop light and not feel the surge of energy in my foot on the pedal. Every symptom I had was going away!

I started consuming the organic kelp granules in April 2011. As of May I am now completely free of suffering the symptoms of EMF sensitivities! I feel so free and thankful to feel normal again and enjoy life again! Everything I did and everywhere I went I always had to fear the symptoms and stopped doing many things that I once had so much fun doing. I know what it feels like to live with this and I hope by sharing what worked for me it may help another person as well!

If you have any health problems (besides EMF sensitivities) or take medicine it would be a good idea to check with your doctor and make sure increase levels of iodine (through consuming nature's Kelp, not pills) will not interfere with your health. Iodine can interact with some medicines I read. Google and do your own research and determine if it you feel it is okay for you to try. The kelp granules are a natural version no different then if I decided to start eating kelp for dinner on a regular basis. Too much of a good thing is not good though and iodine is powerful so if your going to use remember you only need a tiny bit! That's a lot of iodine for just 1/4 teaspoon! I never use that full amount, just a pinch daily has worked for me. Be safe:)

I noticed another topic on here about masking the problem and stress / adrenal glands. It may not be the iodine helped protect against  emf radiation for me but instead strengthened my thyroid / adrenal functioning to have a better defense against the EMF attacks on my body? Iodine has direct impact on our thyroid / adrenal functioning of the body and by making sure it is in our diet is one way we can help to heal instead of masking.

Good luck!

Dear Chris,
 
Your story is an inspiration to behold!
Thank you for sharing that.
 
Yes, what you said about the Iodine supporting the the thyroid, which in turn helps the adrenal glands is true.
Here is another connection. The adrenal glands play a large role in the body's electrical system.
So if the electrical system is out of balance, the body is unable to "ground" itself..and thus becomes more sensitive to fields of emf's...
For some, correcting nutritional deficiencies may greatly improve ES symptoms.
For others, it may be they are living/working in buildings with strong fields, faulty wiring, high ele/high magnetic fields/ wireless...this is not so easy to correct.
Below is an article that I found very useful.
Blessings and thanks again for sharing your wonderful story!
Lizzie

Thanks for that information, Chris!  Glad to hear you found a solution to your EMF sensitivity!

However, you've made an assumption that iodine cured your EMF sensitivity, when in fact you were eating a specific kind of kelp.  Kelp of course contains many things beside iodine, so I think it would be more correct to say that "Kelp" cured your EMF sensitivity, not iodine.

Unless you have tried with pure iodine and got the same results?

Hi Mark!

I've only used the kelp granules so your right, it would be the kelp and other things in not just iodine. Good point:)

Interesting...

I started eating fresh kelp on & off a few months ago,
then for the last three days.  Kelp and now am trying Dulse
(raw) from Earth Circle Foods!!  I tried kelp tabs a few days,
ago, but feel better when eating fresh kelp or Dulse.  So yes,
there may well be a connection.  I have been suffering less
EMF/ES too..

Yes, having tried various types of seaweeds and also straight iodine/iodide supplements, I can say that there is definitely a difference between the two.

As for what you used, I checked the manufacturer's website and found the following details:

"Laminaria digitata

Low sodium Kelp Granules, in bulk lots or as a sprinkle-on Sea Seasonings 1.5 oz shaker, are a convenient way to get your sea veggies. Kelp granules are "salty" yet low sodium, thanks to the rich complement of potassium, magnesium, and other mineral salts. Kelp granules are an especially rich source of potassium, iron, iodine, Vitamin B-6, Riboflavin, and dietary fiber. Kelp also contains a natural substance, glutamic acid, that enhances flavor and tenderizes. Phytochemicals in kelp have been shown to absorb and eliminate radioactive elements and heavy metal contaminants from our bodies. Sprinkle on soups, salads, tofu, pasta, stir-fries, dressings, dips, sauces, breads, tabouli. Get the nutritional benefits of sea veggies, and skip the table salt."

I think it's wonderful & am going to try it.

I don't know if this has anything to do w this. Have either of you tested w PKU? I was listening to Dr. Klinghardt & he mentioned
B-6, zinc, & biotin are lost by those w it. He also mentioned  many w w neuro symptoms of numbness have PKU.

or the kelp helped your thyroid, that helped you w everything.

Yes, I had that test done once, and my test result was "positive" (that is, in need of
B-6, zinc, biotin, etc.).  However, I could not tolerate Dr. Klinghardt's own supplement
for this (it had high amounts of several things), but I can supplement with each of
these things individually in low doses (especially if the supplements are food-based).

I think that test is an indirect way to test for heavy metal poisoning... ?

Good point about PKU.  I tested neg.

Which supps that are food based you are using?

Am looking for a reputable company.

Thanks.

Most of the food-based supplements I use are professional
brands that clinical nutritionists sell to their clients:

- Standard Process
- Innate Response
- Apex Energetix

You can always find these online, even though I don't
think you are supposed to be able to.. :-)

Actually, that's a good point. Here is one example I found, listing trace minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron.
Lizzie
 
Norwegian Kelp GP contains kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum) - brown algae, growing in the cold waters of the North Atlantic ocean. Kelp is harvested from the pollution-free regions of Norwegian Sea.

Studies indicate that kelp contains more vitamins and minerals than any other foodstuff. The trace-mineral content (potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron) is among the highest of any known single source, but it's the iodine content in kelp that makes it especially good for your mental and physical health.

At this point I want to mention a very special food iodine supplement called Modifilan which is a 40:1 extract
of Kombu seaweed, it has a fascinating background with a lot of scientific research in the former USSR.

I have been using it for some time and I have to say it leaves all other iodine supplements behind, its incredible.

On the other hand, I had a horrific reaction to Modifilan (this was
many years ago, I can't even remember what happened now), so as usual,
people's reactions may vary...

I haven't had any tests done. I avoided the doctors when I was suffering through all of this because I knew they were just going to try and label it as anxiety and try and convince me to take a pill for it.

I'm not familiar with a PKU test but will look it up to learn more about!

I do feel the kelp strengthened my thyroid, adrenal and brain chemistry that all together made this condition heal. I'm just so thankful and hope it works for others out there too:)

The PKU test would never be ordered by a regular MD... mine was ordered
by an "alternative health" practitioner (not covered by insurance).

Hi, Marc and Jacqueline???

Sorry, I forgot the newbie's name who sent the info about the Kelp salts seasoning she was using which helped her ES.  That is a very interesting formulation!  Marc wrote all it was said to contain from the site where it was sold, and the site went on to say:  "Kelp also contains a natural substance, glutamic acid...."

This is particularly interesting info because glutamic acid is a product of glutamine, which celiacs are told to take to heal their tight junctions in their intestines and BBBs!  (Which, it is likely, ESsers also would need!)

Very interesting product.  I am going to order some myself.
Thanks so much, Marc, and Newbie!  And welcome to the forum!

Diane

Hi Marc and Ole,

Interesting that modifilin helps you, Ole.  I was going to say, like Marc, it made me worse, but first I looked to see if we were talking about the same thing--I remembered the spelling being "modafilin" ("provigil').  So I looked it up and I think they are two different products, Marc.  I remember a looooonnnnnngggggg time ago, you and I had a discussion about both of us trying provigil and neither of us tolerating it.  There is another product spelled "modifilin", which is a seaweed extract.

On the other hand, I had a horrific reaction to Modifilan (this was

many years ago, I can't even remember what happened now), so as usual,

people's reactions may vary...

The one I could not tolerate what "Modifilan":

  http://www.modifilan.com/

This is supposed to be concentrated Kombu seaweed, however I had
a horrible reaction to it, even at 1/20 of a capsule!

However, I can eat rehydrated Kombu from the health food store
without problems... (?)

Interesting that you can eat Kombu--the concentration must be really high in modifilin!

So, Marc, did you ever take Provigal???  lol  Maybe we were talking apples and oranges way back when we discussed it before!  I found it odd that two products were so similarly named.  Usually manufacturers wouldn't use a name with such similar spelling due to mix-ups, such as this.

Evie,

I'm glad you pointed out the product has glutamic acid.  I have not been eating much meat to keep the balance from GABA & glutamate on the GABA side for anxiety issues.

 I'm sure many of us are low in glutamine. I'm gonig to try this too.

      Hi, Marc and Jacqueline???



Sorry, I forgot the newbie's name who sent the info about the Kelp salts seasoning she was using which helped her ES.  That is a very interesting formulation!  Marc wrote all it was said to contain from the site where it was sold, and the site went on to say:  "Kelp also contains a natural substance, glutamic acid...."



This is particularly interesting info because glutamic acid is a product of glutamine, which celiacs are told to take to heal their tight junctions in their intestines and BBBs!  (Which, it is likely, ESsers also would need!)



Very interesting product.  I am going to order some myself.

Thanks so much, Marc, and Newbie!  And welcome to the forum!

> I've only used the kelp granules so your right, it would be the kelp and other things in not just iodine.



As for what you used, I checked the manufacturer's website and found the following details:



"Laminaria digitata



Low sodium Kelp Granules, in bulk lots or as a sprinkle-on Sea Seasonings 1.5 oz shaker, are a convenient way to get your sea veggies. Kelp granules are "salty" yet low sodium, thanks to the rich complement of potassium, magnesium, and other mineral salts. Kelp granules are an especially rich source of potassium, iron, iodine, Vitamin B-6, Riboflavin, and dietary fiber. Kelp also contains a natural substance, glutamic acid, that enhances flavor and tenderizes. Phytochemicals in kelp have been shown to absorb and eliminate radioactive elements and heavy metal contaminants from our bodies. Sprinkle on soups, salads, tofu, pasta, stir-fries, dressings, dips, sauces, breads, tabouli. Get the nutritional benefits of sea veggies, and skip the table salt."
