Of course I would NEVER suggest not acting on your wellness team's advice. Dr. Brownstien's book on iodine changed my life though. I supplement with a magnetized version of elemental iodine that Edgar Casey referred to as "Atomodine" in his writings. Most people don't realize that their bodies will retain and use about a gram and a half of iodine before its starts getting excreted in larger quantities in the urine. Iodine is used by the glandular system mainly but can be found in all body tissues. The FDA requirements are only enough for you to NOT get goiter. My point is its just another example of how docs and the government don't know it all yet and more info empowers us to make life choices that are right for us. http://www.magnascent.com/ Edit: VICKI, if you develop a cough on that ACE inhibitor speak to your doc about it. Its a common side effect and one I experienced personally.
