Lugol’s Iodine 2%
Iodine is an essential supplement for everyone. It’s possible to take iodine in the form of Lugol’s iodine drops, or you can choose to take an Iodoral supplement. Both support health in the same way in the body, and it’s up to you which one you choose. To use this 2% Lugol’s iodine solution, either rub 1-2 drops into your skin or add them into water to drink in the morning. Each day, increase the dose by 1 drop until you reach a dosage of 20-30 drops per day. If you break out in a rash or feel depressed, drink a glass of water with 1/2 tsp of sea salt. Drink the saltwater every 30 minutes until you start to urinate frequently (the urination will help your body remove the bromine more quickly from your system, leaving you feeling better overall).
If you prefer a pill form of iodine, progress first to taking the 12.5mg Iodoral supplement after working up to 20 drops of Lugol’s, and then 1-2 months after that, you may start taking the 50mg Iodoral supplement.
NOTE: Many people break out in a rash after taking an iodine supplement like this, especially in a higher dose. This does not mean you are allergic to iodine, rather, the rash is the body’s response to the bromine leaving your body as the iodine takes up its rightful place.
