Just ordered the supplement, and going to give this a shot. I am a 24 year old vegan, have been for 2 years. I eat very clean, hydrate frequently, and have had epidydimitis for 4-5 weeks. The doctor put me through two cycles of anibiotics – doxy and cipro, which didn’t alleviate the problem. I am an avid cyclist and runner, but haven’t done any physical activity for almost a month and a half. I still have a bit of pain, and really hope this works. I also had some fear of magnesium toxicity. Will do this later this week. Going to seriously blow the biggest load that night, Supine!! Lol. Fingers crossed.

It has also been reported that women with this specific iodine deficiency disease are also more likely to develop breast cancer than those that don’t.
Since men don’t have these problems, women are unfortunately the ones who are typically more prone to being iodine deficient.

While some remedies have been validated through the scientific process many others have been completely discredited, while still more have never been investigated. For this reason it is advisable that you consult your doctor before trying any of these remedies. Some of the common natural cures for kidney stones include:
