WellnessFX practioner says stop taking Iodine?

Hi all,

I just had my WellnessFX phone consult, and I was surprised by the kind of information I got from the doctor. First, he said to stop taking Iodine because it can make your TSH thyroid marker go out of whack (mine is currently 8.89). The doc said most people have enough iodine and taking too much is not good. I started taking Iodine because it was recommended on this BP page ([https://blog.bulletproof.com/optimize-your-supplements/]).

Also, I was very surprised at how anti-Bulletproof the doctor was. He said he had heard all the arguments for both sides and he recommends that I stop all saturated fats, cut out as much fat as possible and that it all comes down to calories when losing weight.

(Honestly, I've felt my best following the Bulletproof diet, and I sort of checked out after the doctor said those things. I could have gotten that kind of advice from my own doctor for just the cost of a co-payment.)

Because WellnessFX is promoted by BP and vice versa, I thought that their practitioners would at least share some of the same principles. I was very disappointed.

Thanks for any replies.

    Well, a doctor can only make recommendations and I think if you wanna be sure get yourself tested. I did and I was low so my doctor recommended I take iodine.

    May you be well, may you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be loved.

    Stop taking iodine (and selenium) for a while,
    & see if your TSH goes down.

    How much iodine & selenium (if any) were you taking.
    & do you know what your TSH was beforehand.

    fake it till you make it

  • Daz, I was taking 225mcg daily. I don't know what TSH was before as this was my first test. Thanks.
