This dietary supplement is a combination of elemental iodine and potassium iodide which provides the body with 6.4 mg of elemental iodine per drop.
Iodine is essential to keep the thyroid gland healthy. The thyroid gland treats the entire body’s blood supply once every 17 minutes. If it has sufficient iodine it is able to kill germs and virus contained in the blood and release clean blood, which is essential for good heath. Another function of a healthy thyroid is to rebuild the body’s energy. There is a definite relationship between the amount of energy and your iodine intake.

Normally we receive iodine in our food and water: such as seafoods, kelp, cod liver oil, radishes, asparagus, carrots, tomato, rhubarb, potatoes, peas, strawberries, lettuce, bananas, cabbage, egg yolk, and onions.
However one major problem is that when chloride is added to the water supply it displaces iodine from the body, as does too much salt.
The law of Halogen displacement states that any one of the following elements will displace any element with a higher atomic weight.
The following are the atomic weights of;
Hence, chlorine(in water or salt) and fluoride(in water, toothpaste or vegetable sprays) will displace the essential iodine in your body. Hence the need to supplement for good health.
Iodine has successfully been used for Radiation Poisoning and protection.
The Japanese health paradox:
Japan has one of the word’s highest levels of tobacco smoking but one of the lowest levels of cancer with breast cancer nearly unknown. Research shows that because of the high seafood content in the diet iodine intake levels average 12 mg per day. (equal to 2 drops of Lugol’s solution)
Iodine supplementation into New Zealand bread flour equates to only 1 mg per loaf, which is far below the recommended 12 mg per day.
Iodine protocol for optimum health:
Take 8 drops of Lugol’s iodine daily for a period of 3 months. This allows the iodine to penetrate all parts of the body to dislodge poisonous deposits of Bromide, Fluoride, Chloride, Mercury ,Lead, Cadmium, and Aluminium. These will be secreted with iodine in the urine over the 3 months. The detox will increase to a peak over 2 months before falling to low levels in the 3rd month at the end of which the supplement is reduced back to the maintenance level of 2 drops a day.
The recommended normal adult dose is 2 drops a day taken with fruit or vegetable juice, or water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, taken with food.
