I have been diagnosed with a low functioning thyroid, and now take the Lugol's iodine drops every day. I just add a few drops to a small glass of juice before I get ready for bed, and you barely taste it iin the juice. Since I take vitamins then anyway, this works perfect for me and I use the juice to wash down the vitamins with. The doctor does tests every few months, and my thyroid is now almost back to a normal function level. Most people think that we get enough iodine from using iodized salt; but that is not true at all. A lot of the iodine evaporates before we even use the salt. Not only that, most doctors tell their patients to cut down on salt, especially seniors like me; so seniors are probably the most iodine deficient group in America today. I have started using natural Himalayan sea salt, which is much healthier than chemically-processed salt we buy in the grocery store, and added the iodine supplement. Even though I have not changed my diet to speak of otherwise, and I am in my 70's, I have increased energy, and also have been losing weight and regaining muscle tone. I also absolutely recommend listening to Dr. David Brownstein talk about the importance of iodine and thyroid health. He has several videos on Youtube. Some of them are not the best listening quality; but the information is vital. If you have found this review to be helpful in any way, please click the "Like" button for me.
HERE ARE THE EXCAT USAGE INSTRUCTIONS THAT "WERE NOT" INCLUDED WITH THE BOTTLE OR INSIDE BOX- I HOPE THE MANUFACTURER INCLUDES THIS WITH ALL PURCHASES-USED IN EXCESS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS AND POTENTIAL LAW SUIT WITHOUT DIRECTIONS FOR USAGE . INTERNALLY - For gas, bloating, indigestion, stomach problems, food or salmonella poisoning, use 6 drops in 1/2 glass of water, 2 or 3 times a day, for a few days. Take after meals and at bedtime. For severe cases, it can be increased to 12 drops. You'll feel results shortly. For anxiety/mood swings, etc., or for a more relaxed and peaceful state, take 6 drops in water once or twice during the day. In general, 6 drops can usually end it all for a mild case of salmonella poisoning. Though very safe, use only when needed. THYROID PROBLEM - Many problems, in general, can be attributed to iodine deficiency. 75 years ago, Lugol's iodine was commonly used by doctors. 2/3 of a teaspoon (60 drops) was the standard dose for thyroid disease. You can start with 6 to 12 drops a day in water for about one week and you will notice improvement. Then it is advisable to consult with your doctor. IODINE DEFICIENCY - Take about 2, 3 or 4 drops in water daily for about a month. Can be increased to 6 drops daily if needed. After you've replenished iodine, then take twice a week. MOUTHWASH AND CLEANSER - Great as a mouthwash/mouth cleanser against bacteria, fungus, mucus, virus, coated tongue, etc. Use 3 to 6 drops in glass of water, gargle, do not drink, spit out in glass and observe what comes out. Your mouth will feel refreshed and great. HOPE THIS HELPS CURRENT AND FUTURE CUSTOMERS
I love, love this Iodine solution. I use 6 drops daily in my water. It's helped improve my life - I believe that I might be Hypothioroid ... anyhoooo.. This iodine has helped make me stable, no more sluggish feeling, I worked 3rd shift previously and relied on caffeine tabs to keep me awake. After starting to use this product, no more sluggish feeling. I had instant energy. Oh one other good side effect - I used to suffer from weekly migraines - well, they are gone, and I haven't had one in 3 years.
I would download the use instructions on Lugols website, listed on the bottle. Their Q&A will give you much info - It's highly suggested. The most important tidbit, is the fact that after several days of using Iodine (assuming you can tolerate it), you might crash, or feel worse. The instructions mention this - it's your body trying to get rid of prior crud in your system. It's easy, take 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, with water several times, until you start to urinate. This will get rid of the chlorine, bromine, fluoride in your body, and then the body will be able to absorb the iodine for its use. Please, read the instruction on the website. I had to initially do this twice - since then, no more problems. I have a house water filter that completely removes all of the city water (has chlorine, fluoride), I don't drink mountain dew (has bromine or bromate) yada yada yada. This has helped immensely. I've done my re-search, these are my experiences. Please read and do your own re-search as well.
Here is the information from Lugols website - it's a PDF - all of the information is crucial, lots - o - stuff to read. The specifics on the salt detox for bromide, fluoride yada yada that I mentioned is on page 93. Go to Lugols dot com , scan down to a link labeled - Mary Jo Fahey-Iodine Remedies: click on that link and read until your hearts content.
Hope that helps others. Please don't take my information, read, do your own re-search and see if this is right for you - your own knowledge is crucial, you know your own body better than anyone else.
