sweetrunning Posted March 2, 2014 Share Posted March 2, 2014 HI everyone, I'm on day 22 of whole 30 and feeling pretty great overall. One funny thing happened though, I got lots of stress in my neck last Thursday and a knot in the back just wouldn't go out, I felt like I wanted to just pull it out. That's when I noticed that the front of my neck was feeling a little swollen by my Adam's apple. And I started googling and learned about iodine in table salt. Since I started whole 30, I've only been having sea salt. I may have been getting a bit of iodine in items like hard boiled eggs. Then I re-read through it starts with food and it said to alternate table salt and sea salt. Then I googled more and it said sore/neck muscles is a symptom of not having enough iodine as well as worse breathing. I was like holy crap, every time I've ran and got to high intensity my asthma was much worse than normal. So yesterday I slammed 2 tsp in water of Morton's table salt and put it in my dinner too. Now today my thyoid/adam's apple is actually sore, like my throat is sore, the neck pain in the back feels better though and my head feels puffy. What should I do? Do you think a couple days of just a tsp of table salt will whip me into shape? Should I have this or Himalayan pink salt instead? I shouldn't need to go to the doctor right since it's only been 21 days on this and I've gotten a big through diet. I've been eating all organic veggies and meats from grass fed animal with no antibiotics/pesticides. I guess your body will always tell you when you need something , and mine is in a major way. It must be confused by suddenly having the nutrient again and on overdrive. Oh my! Any advice would be helpful. I Hope I didn't screw my body up.
