Heart issue/ Pain after overdosed on herbs an Iodine (lugols 10% ten drops)

Posted , 3 users are following.


I have lyme disease an a few co infections which I have been treating naturally for nearly 2 years (5 years with it). I stupidly decided to take a huge amount of multiple herbs an iodine, caused my heart rate to slow down. i felt extremely ill for a month after an thought I was going to die. tried to take more herbs but that then lead to again my heart slowing down but then after I couldnt get up an down stairs without heart skipping beats, pounding an feeling like it was stop an starting. I couldnt eat any cold foods or would make me feel very weak an faint (e.g salad). all i could do was sit on the sofa an even that was a struggle. this all happend 6 months ago. I have pain in the left side of my chest about an inch down from my nipple an it radiates through in between my left shoulder blade. it gets worse if i increase my heart rate (not during but more after it), if my bath is too hot, if I walk to far or up an incline. it also feels as though my heart is struggling an pounding afterwards. i have this unwell feeling along with the pain. im 21 year old male an normally surf an run so this isnt normal at all. please help im despearte now as I cant treat my condition untill this goes an im scared im going to die, sounds silly but i feel so ill.

had: ultrasound of heart, CT scan with contrast, 24 hour ECG

    Lugol's Iodine is very dangerous to mess around with. your actually only really meant to take around 1 or two drops a week. you have to ve very careful when treating yourself for illnesses, theres no harm in prefering alternitive medicine to orthodox medicine, but it can still be dangerous if you dont do your homework and know everything there is about vitamins, supplements etc. i fo hope your going to be ok, sounds a bit nasty, what your experiencing.
