Hello! I'm glad to have found this website!
I've started a treatment with 5% Lugol's lately, but since I'm not under the supervision of any doctor, questions arise from time to time. I hope to find answers here.
I'm taking 5 drops of the solution in a cup of water every morning, and also am painting an almost 3 inches patch over my uterus & ovaries area (wishing to get rid of an endometrial cyst).
Now my question is, how can I know if that's enough to give results, or maybe I'm taking more than needed? Should I take the patch absorption time as an indicator? Is it 100% reliable? If the patch disappears in less than 24 hours, does it mean there's no way I could overdose with iodine? And, if after more than a month of treatment it still disappears within 5-8 hours, could it mean I should raise the quantity of drops?
Thank you in advance for any answer you may give.
First of all, I'm happy you've started an iodine treatment.
Please use the iodine carefully. You will find that you will start to have detoxification symptoms as your body releases bromine and other pollutant stored in your body which act as inhibitors for iodine absorption.
Here is a link to a site page which sets out the dosges for Lugol's Iodine: Lugols Iodine
There is also a very good chat board to go to which has extensive information at
