When we take iodine, we stand a chance of knocking other halides-define like bromine-define loose. If our liver and kidneys can’t get this stuff out in time, it gets stuck floating around in our blood waiting for our body to catch up and filter it out, or it gets stored in fat or water. Chances are, our liver and kidneys aren’t going to magically catch up all the sudden. We’re in this mess because we couldn’t get the stuff out in time as the years go on, even if we support them with food and supplements, they most likely have way too much work to do.
Bromine is one of the toxins we are most likely loaded with. Luckily it binds with Sodium Chloride in unrefined salt. Any time I would feel the symptoms of bromine poisoning, I would try a salt load or two in an attempt to bind with it and clear it out.
Common bromide toxicity symptoms
Body: diarrhea or constipation, hormone changes, leg and hip ache, frequent urination (mimicking urinary infection)
Mood: Anxiety, dream changes, irritability, lethargy
Head: brain fog, headache, sinus ache, runny nose, hair loss
Mouth: dry mouth, increased salivation, mouth and tongue sores, odd swallowing sensation
Skin: Acne, skin rash (bromaderma)
Twitching & Jerking: eye lid twitching, foot twitching, tingling in hands or feet, leg jerking
- 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon unrefined salt
- 1/2 cup water to mix salt with
- 12-16oz pure water to drink instantly after salt water
I use a mason jar because it has measurements on the side. I fill it up to 4oz which is 1/2 cup and add my salt. I swirl the jar around until the salt is dissolved. Then I drink the salt and fill the jar up to 12-16oz of plain water and drink that right away. Sometimes I notice my brain fog clear within seconds, sometimes I feel it slowly help.
If I don’t notice relief and do not urinate in 30-45 minutes, my body may have needed the sodium and used it for other processes instead of binding with bromine. If this happens, I do another salt load.
This can be done for a few days in a row if it helps pull you out of the fog, but reducing the amount of toxins you are attempting to remove is a good idea so that you don’t need to depend on this method.
