I fell well over a month ago and bounced back really fast, as I was on higher amounts of iodine. I began to dance again and then less frequently. I was not enjoying it so much and then I noticed that my left ankle, the one hurt in the fall was swollen when I lay down to sleep... then noticed it was actually all the time. I have kept off it over a week. In the mean time I got a cold/detox at about the same time and was doing what I could to cope.
I had lowered my 100mg plus daily amount of iodine... skipped days, sometimes two or three at a time.. winging it, and thinking not a thing had changed.
Tonight, in between computer game sessions (Max Payne - wonderful almost-mindless shoot them up) I got to thinking... had the higher dose I had been taking protected my wounded ankle from excess irritation?? Me thinks yes. And when I lowered the amount did that then allow the half healed situation to arise? If I had not danced, perhaps I would not have re-injured the ankle/re-strained it, but without the Iodine the ankle was vulnerable whether I danced or not.
So, of course I am back to daily 100 mg and if that brings on the zits again.. Good! LOL
I hate the zits.. but I really prefer walking with zits to limping without them. Plus they will eventually go away forever.
Now, I am not saying not to lower your Iodine amounts. I am saying I see how much help it has been - unseen and unappreciated until now FOR ME. And I have been singing the purple praises all along! LOL
But you are neither dense nor stupid, LNDolls :), so stop thinking that.
So there's more going on than you know about, so what? Aren't we all trying to figure out what's going on?
I mean, since the humungo big, omniscient "doctors" can't figure out what really actually is wrong with anybody until the person gets to *autopsy*.
I mean we who are currently *living* (And intending to stay that way) must use in vivo observation and shared communication to arrive at our missing answers, yes?
OK, done preaching and on to my theory:
I am noticing a difference between painting Iodine and ingesting it. I have used only Lugol's 5%, since I began ingesting Iodine and am currently taking between 10 & 15 horizontal drops per day, on the days which I take it.
With ingesting only, my skin did get much silkier and I love that. But there are some more localized issues with my skin, sinuses and respiratory system that seem to respond better to painting.
May I suggest that you paint some of your Iodine in about a fist-sized spot, right smack on your Solar Plexus, below the lower end of your Sternum, right below where your rib cage comes together? Not over the bones, but over the soft tissue (Mesentery).I used about 5 drops or so.
That's what I did, and within several seconds, I felt it rise to my face, lungs, nose, sinuses and Eustachian tubes. These things did not happen nearly as much nor as quickly when I painted 2 drops of Lugol's directly onto my face, nor when ingesting the Lugol's internally.
I think I am onto something here, and you can add to the data by testing this..
I think that there is some kind of Iodine gateway (Or maybe a membraneous wall that, in me, seems to be obstructed and may need help) from the inside to the outside of our bodies, and I hope to facilitate that highway by approaching it from both ends. I feel that for me time is of the essence, otherwise I'd just keep going and wait it out, knowing that eventually, things will clear up.
I do not have zits or anything like that, but there is some kind of hard, plastic-y substance which my skin is attempting to eject. It doesn't make a zit, it makes a bump similar to a clear blackhead, which I then have to scratch/dig off and out of the surface of my skin. These spots occur near Lymph nodes, and more near swollen spots, so I know that's what's going on.
I don't have many of them, but I know every inch of this burg, so to speak, and I know when something's happening that didn't before.
I can see from my irises that my Lymph system has been obstructed. I do know why it probably happened, I just want it gone from my physical system, *now*.
So there you have it, my theory of painting-does-different-than-ingesting.
If you give this a try, please post back so I know what happened.
Another possibility is, I may go to Potassium Iodide or-Iodate saturated solution for painting, but I haven't decided yet.
My nose did not run, although there was a slight increase of moisture *way* up at the root of it. The obstruction of the air passages just left. It was a successive clearing.
I am using *Lugol's 5%*.
The first time I painted the mesentery I used 2 drops. Most recently I have used 5 drops, and various amounts in between.
The first time I did it, the physical response was quite perceptible. Each successive time (About 6 now), it is still quite perceptible, but the first time I wasn't sure what to look for- I just 'opened', watched and waited.
Although it is also true that I am extremely sensitized to the movement of energy, one cannot deny the precipitate presence of moisture in the nasal passages as they clear and un-swell, or a smooth, quick, opening of the ears.
That's the best description I can give you, unless I think of something else :).
Thanks for the good words, Cora :)XO
Good Health to All of Us,
PS: I did not decrease the amount I of Lugol's ingested when I did this.
Thanks for the added detail, Sis. I gave it a go, and I've actually done something similar before but more a 3-4" wide strip from my sternum to my little b button. I can't exactly report that either attempt (including today's fist size paint by number) provided much in the way of noticable result.

So you too? Like a ship in a tropical storm here.

I want this! I need this! I deserve this. But I think my respiratory issues extend beyond rescue from the added Iodine (Lugols), ingested or otherwise. But it was an interesting experiment.
Thanks for sharing this one, girlieque. I'll probably be giving it a try again.
