Up early today, I decided to begin with the painting... I know I used more than five drops and I lay there... kinda still drowsy from sleeping. In just a few minutes I felt a shift in energy, similar to drinking a cup of coffee, my mind cleared. It was great.
I also noticed my sinuses are clear again - I can breath at night, the hurt ankle is no longer painful to the touch, fully mobile with no complaints and less puffy. I am still taking it easy.
New development - my skin where I applied the Lugol's got warm and itchy. The Iodine faded and now that area is red, slightly bumpy and still itchy.
I may or may not paint today, but I wanted to post to report what happened to me yesterday.
I painted with ten drops, with good results. However, later I decided to paint again, and to use that to see how long before the color would go away. It was still there this morning, or so I thought. What actually is there is the color from a very mild burn, like a faint sunburn. Certainly I used too much for that area. I am sure I could put that much on a knee, for example, with no burn.
