Painting to get iodine into needed tissues has been used as a medical practice for over a hundred years, look at this clip from Dr. Kruse:
As proven at the Curzone, painting is equally effective to get iodine into the prostate. If it is good enough for Dr. Jack Kruse, at his medical school, it is good enough us. Caution: Iodine painted directly to the skin needs an oil carrier to prevent dermatitus.One clinical finding I always ask about is the presence of fibrocystic breast disease. When it is present I immediately think the woman is likely suffering from an undiagnosed iodine deficiency. I distinctly remember in medical school seeing a woman’s fibrocystic disease cured in less than an hour by an ancient physician who taught us how to examine a women’s breasts. She had volunteered to be a guinea pig for us during our medical education, and on this day we could not examine her without making her scream and cry because her breasts were so tender to palpation. Our MD proctor was about 80 years old and he too was a volunteer helping us learn our craft. He stopped me from examining her breasts and asked her a few questions and then he asked us to leave the room. He applied Lugol’s solution to her vulva and her nipples and we were able to examine her without any pain a half hour later. It made a huge impression on me. He asked her if she was on any thyroid meds and if she had bad energy or weight gain. A lack of iodine was the source of her painful breasts. Her labs did not reveal any major issues when we saw her. I never forgot this lesson on the thyroid.
WHAT ARE THE TOP TEN PALEO SUPPLEMENTS? - Jack Kruse
This made an equally big impression on me. What is so amazing to me is how RAPID the response to painting with iodine was.
PS) I think you and I are among the 1st in this group to get to 100mg of iodoral. I think I have some big news to report as a result health improvements at this level. I'll wait for a month to be certain these improvements are not a flash in the pan. I've had no more detox symptoms since going to 100mg, so I think I will drop back to a dosage of 12.5 mg maintenance level in around October. We use well water, on a strict Paleo diet, and we try to eliminate Halide chemicals whenever possible.
Also I've decided to go for the Hakala Iodine/Bromide/Fluoride testing to be certain I am free of toxins and that I register 90% or better in iodine sufficiency come October.
