"I have learned to actually start doing my research when it comes to things before doing anything.

So I had been taking some seaweed supplements that are high in iodine and when I was buying them alone, because I am obsessed with vitamins I saw on the back, "nerve function," and I was like that is going to calm my nervous system?

Cool give me some of that and guys if I had not gone to the hospital in time I would have been calmed down for life!" Narrated the YouTube content creator.

According to Ronoh, she called her doctor friend narrating her symptoms and she advised her to quickly rush to the hospital for a iodine cleanse which saw her be on drip for a while.
