Good article warning people of the Dangers of overdosing on Iodine from several "Non-organic forms", such as Lugol's Solution and the Iodoral Tablets which are made with Iodine and Potassium iodide(SSKI) !
And a person may find "Many" articles with similar "Warnings", if "YOU" choose to do a search for them !
As Invincible has posted in an earlier post:----- I also read the post where Vulcanel originally posted that he recommends Iodoral tablets from Optimox, although I now see he has edited that statement. That recommendation did seem a little odd to me, considering Iodoral is non-organic iodine isn't it?
"IodoralR is a precisely quantified tablet form containing 5 mg iodine and 7.5 mg iodide as the potassium salt. ------To prevent gastric irritation,-------- the iodine/iodide preparation was absorbed unto a colloidal silica excipient; and to eliminate the unpleasant taste of iodine, the tablets were---- coat-ed with a thin film of pharmaceutical glaze"--- "Drug" !
Desn't sound like food either!
I'm sticking with the Norwegian kelp!!!!!!!!! I like the whole food, balanced aspect.
It's freezing cold in the UK right now, unlike some, I'm not able to stay indoors all the time as I am committed to 2 hours of dog walking every day. Today, I took 3 heaped tablespoons of kelp powder and have felt snug as a bug even when walking on ice and snow!
This time last year, before adding kelp to my healing protocol, I would have found any excuse to be sitting at home, by the fire. And even then, I would have felt cold inside.
Bring on the blizzards - I'm ready for them!!! :-)
As this above post by Invincible explains, there are much "Safer" ways to get your Iodine, in an Organic form, which is "NOT" Dangerous to "Your" Health and Well-being !
Consider if "YOU" have Children in the house and one of them got into a bottle of synthetic Iodine and were Poisoned, how would "YOU" feel about the synthetic Iodine, then ?
Whereas if you have the Natural food of kelp to supply you with the needed Iodine, you do not need to worry about a child eating too much of it and Causing them to become Poisoned from an overdose of Iodine !
First of all, there may be conditions where it may be advantages to have some iodine tablets or solution on hand as you have mentioned, for a emergency condition !
But it may "ALWAYS" be Best to try to supply your needs of Iodine thru Natural Foods, which have the needed Alkaline Minerals, as may be the case with Kelp !
And when a person is supplying their body with the needed Alkaline Minerals and Natural iodine on a regular Basis, then this person may not be Stressed as much as a person who is Low of the needed Alkaline Minerals, and thus the Stressed person may become Sick and Diseased , whereas the Healthy person may not have any problems !
And in the case of the person who was supplying their body what it may need every Day, this person may not need an emergency dose of iodine to keep living !
The interesting thing about this idea ,which some are bashing Calcium Hydroxide, Claiming it is non-organic and then turning around and trying to Sell people on the idea of Buying Non-organic Iodine (Iodoral)a Drug, is that by My suggestion of mixing the Calcium Hydroxide up as Diluted Lime water and then mixing it in the Alkalizing Drink, which has Blackstrap Molasses in it, This thus may Cause the Calcium Hydroxide to become an Organic form of Calcium again, which the body may easily utilize !
Whereas the Iodoral may still be Poisonous by ingesting a little too much !
Just check out the side effects by those who are Selling Iodoral, as cautioning it's use !
So this is a no-Brainer for anyone who still has any Common Sense left in their head !
For "Kelp" as I have suggested for a person to use to get their needed Iodine is still the "KING" of choices, if "YOU" choose to learn to have any "Compassion" for "YOUR" body !
