          Personally I haven't found seaweed in my local stores, though we live by the sea. The local beaches meet EU standards as a state of the art sewerage treatment plant was built a few miles away where it all gets treated, then treated with ultraviolet before being released as clean water further up the coast. We have lobsters here (mostly exported) so it can't be too bad. I just wouldn't know which seaweeds to pick.

          Via online delivery with Abel & Cole I can buy Cornish wild samphire in season, (currently 1.95 GBP for 100g) which grows wild on rocks and there's another type which grows in marshes in Norfolk. Both are naturally salty and very yummy. One UK supermarket, ASDA, sells Extra Special range cultivated samphire (currently 1.32 GBP for 90g) virtually year round but I try not to buy supposedly fresh produce imported from outside EU and generally it's from Israel.
          Your salt would be labeled "iodised salt" or "iodine added" if was were, so it's probably not.
          But the amount you get from table salt is not enough anyway.

          Living by the sea, you may get some iodine if you eat locally grown produce. The samphire you mentioned sounds like it is a good source of iodine, if it is not polluted.

            Can you get food grade hydrogen peroxide? My kids were both sick this last winter, and I know it was strep. I had them gargle roughly three times a day for as long as they could stand it, then spit. They were both cured in this manner.

            I had to get the food grade hydrogen peroxide from the health food store.

            Hope you get better soon!

            A couple of years ago, I started spraying food grade hydrogen peroxide on my toothbrush after using it each time plus spraying some in my mouth to gargle briefly. I've barely had a cold since starting this routine. Peroxide can be hard on delicate gums so I use the standard 3% concentration and gargle for a short time then rinse with water. If I do get a sore or scratchy throat, I put about 15-20 drops of Wisdom of the Ages liquid into some Zevia Ginger Ale and within a short time, the sore throat disappears. I buy the Wisdom of the Ages at my local health food store. I also use a few drops to soak and wash fruit and vegetables. It contains Grape Seed Extract, Jasmine & Green Teas.

            • I'd personally rather try to gargle with a couple of drops of iodine solution in water before trying hydrogen peroxide.

              • Outstanding free video. So good you will want to order the DVD!

                PS) This video is the prize at the end of the rabbit hole that we have been traveling through for the past 6 months:
                Why are 90% of the population severely deficient in iodine??? Follow the money.
                This video is at the end of our rabbit hole, and fundamentally explains WHY the nationwide iodine deficiency.
                * Why was iodine taken out of our bread?
                * Why was iodine taken out of our milk?
                * Why are doctors telling women to cut their breasts off instead of taking iodine?
                * The answers are far bigger than iodine, and make perfect sense.
                ALL of the answers are in this excellent video.

                I've just ordered this video at Amazon.Com for my family:

                • I've been a little thrown this past week because of the power outages, but I'm getting back on track with the supplements. I'm still wimping out on actually drinking the iodine, but I'll start it this weekend. I don't suffer much from Fibrocystic, but some months I definitely blow up a lightly painful cup size. However, I've noticed that since I went full Primal, I've had a lot less pain. This is pre-Lugol's. Maybe it's because I switched to grass-fed meat and full-time local vegetables, which all have less crap in them?

                  Mole update:

                  I think I'm seeing a little progress, but it's very slow. Toe moles are definitely going away. They showed up when I was young as small flat brown spots. About a year ago I noticed that they looked a little darker and denser and even a little raised. That's why I'm using them as a test case. They are stubborn because the toe skin forms thick callous skin very easily and it's hard to get iodine through. I have more luck if I scrape the area with a razor blade and peel off layers of skin. Now the moles look like they did when I was young.

                  Flesh-color mole appears to be alternating between scabbing over and peeling to reveal a whiter softer mole underneath. I can't tell if the mole is going away or not, but I'll keep at it.

                  I'm learning about the hip mole. While I like my home-made spot band-aid, the regular small square band-aid has better results because the skin layer peels a little better. I haven't seen much removal progress, probably because I've been impatient and tried to peel a layer too soon.

                  This is a long process.

                    Oxide,

                    Bless you for your research on moles. Can you explain again how your are preventing iodine from leaking off the mole & onto your skin? As I understand it, you are placing something on the inside of the band aid to focus the iodine onto the mole?

                    PS) Fear not, I have been at 100mg iodoral for the past month with only 1 day of detox, and I have just started on 150mg daily a few times a week. Will go to 150mg daily next week for a while.

                    • Grizz, why are you going so high? Are you trying to see detox symptoms so you know they halogens are being pushed out?

                        Yes, exactly. Each time I've increased my iodine dosage, I get some detox symptoms for a day or so. I also notice more improvements to my health at each level.
                        Iodine levels for me have been:
                        1/2mg
                        1 mg
                        12mg
                        25mg
                        50mg
                        75mg
                        100mg
                        150mg now
                        200mg later this month
                        Will stay at 200 mg for at least 1 month before going down to the "Maintenance Level"

                        Health improvements primarily due to improving prostate function, and to sexual performance (increased sensitivity to the Glans). I plan to titrate up to 200mg daily, hold it there for 1 month and then drop back to 12 to 50mg daily maintenance for life. I'll see which "feels" the best, 12mg, 25mg or 50mg daily. Dr. Brownstein now recommends 50mg daily to keep the toxins out of our body. However we use filtered well water, we don't eat bread & we actively try to eliminate all the halide toxins, so I'm sure that we can do well on less than Dr. Brownstein's recommendation.

                        What are your thoughts on the correct "Maintenance Level" of iodine for you and your family ?

                          I didn't think of that...I've been doing the Hydrogen Peroxide thing for a long time now--before I knew about Lugol's. Wonder if the Lugol's would stain my teeth? I know the peroxide makes them a little whiter even though I gargle a very short time with it--just enough to swish it between all my teeth & crowns.

                            I will chime in here ;--)) I use 10 drops of Lugols 5% with distilled water in a 3 ounce misting bottle to eliminate Bad Breath and for inhaling on an asthma attack. That could also be used for a sore throat and to disinfect a cut or scrape on the skin.

                            I haven't tried it yet, but some folks put a drop of Lugols into the Coconut Oil for "Oil Pulling" to clean the teeth.

                              • Hi Grizz,

                                As I went over 500 MILLIgrams (actually it was 600 to 700 Milligrams as I was using the "Lugols" calculations) of elemental Iodine a day, I also took 200 MICROgrams of selenomethionine four times a day for a total of 800 MICROgrams of selenomethinine.

                                This two month protocol CURED my bleeding stomach ulcers caused by the heleclaxon bacteria. The tremendous antibiotics that the Doctors had me take for two months didn't touch the bacteria. I stayed very sick every day from the horrible antibiotics!
