start taking iodine!

Post  Guest on Thu Jan 28, 2010 8:06 am

I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who is taking iodine and selenium and has not stopped their hairloss?
This summer I tried the IH top 3 with no results. Recently I started iodine and selenium and have stopped my hairloss. I have also put back ecklonia cava in my regime and now it is finally working its wonders! you need to fix the thyroid first people!

Congrats 1...!

To answer your question 5 "vertical" drops of Lugol's 2% = 12.5 mg of "Iodine."

If you're doing horizontal drops then double that. e.g. 5 horizontal drops of Lugol's 2% = 25 mg of "Iodine."

And as you know Lugol's contains Iodine and Iodide. When people refer to how many mg's you should be taking they are referring to the Iodine content as noted above. The "Iodide" content of 2% Lugol's is 4% potassium Iodide. In other words

5 "vertical" drops of Lugol's 2% = 25 mg of "Iodide"

I hope that makes sense.

It's usually best to run an Iodine loading test before you start taking iodine.

I started with 2 drops of lugols 5% with no significant change, and now, from monday im taking 8 drops (50 mg) and my mood and awareness have improved. I wonder how long should i be taking this dose, is there any sign that tells you to cut off on iodine?

I mistakenly posted this in a completely new thread...

But what are you mixing your Lugol's with when you take it? Just curious.

I usually do the drops into a bottle of water. What's with selenium though? It should only be the lugol's that's doing anything in this case, right?

I have been on Iodine(magnascent Iodine 2% 2 drops daily) and selenium for now over 5 months. My hair has not improved during this time, in fact, I have been thinning rapidly this fall.

Selenium is must if you are taking iodine to support the thyroid. It also supports the thyroid alone. I wouldn't take large amounts of iodine without selenium.

I'm thinking about one thing...would a supplement like Tri-iodine (http://www.iherb.com/EuroPharma-Tri-Iodine-12-5-mg-180-Capsules/20512?at=0) be helpful for the thyroid despite it's condition (hypo, normal, hyper)?
