I think this thread is too active to be deleted.
Happily, my new supply of 2% Lugols came in today from Swanson's Vitamins. Hurray! I was getting low. I thought I was going to try Idoral, but it was $34 and change for 180 tablets of 12.5 mg each. I am still on my first bottle of 2% Lugols, and I have titrated up to 10 - 11 drops a day from one drop per day. Other than the occassional runny nose, I don't seem to have any detox symptoms.
I know a bottle will not last as long starting the first pipette-ful out of the bottle dispensing 10 or 11 drops, so I bought two. It was still cheaper than the Idoral. I am not willing to pay for the ease of use, yet. I will just keep adding it to my morning coffee.
I have gotten another member in the household on iodine. She won't take the supplements though. I have not seen any detox symptoms. And since we are well water, and have been all her life, her exposure to toxins has been minimal. I have not seen her skootching her butt across the carpet since I started putting one drop per cup of water in her bowl. Ha ha, that is right I have my 22 pound poodle on it. Since I read mom5's post, I thought, hey I read where they use iodine for farm animals, mom5 said she uses it for her pets, my dog is skootching, means she has worms or something, hmm, mom5 said it cuts out things like that, hmm,so I put 1 and 3 together, got 5 and added iodine to the dogs water. The one daughter who KNOWS I am NUTS, has not seen me yet, but there is plenty of time ahead of us.
Next on my iodine hit parade will be making my own. Chrystals are available on ebay for cheap. I just need to source some big dark glass bottles to put it in and I guess to make it in.
