Here's a good question for those who have had great results flushing with iodine...do you take yours on on empty stomach, or full?
The reason I'm asking (right before I leave for work) is that I'm up to 8 drops a day, and aside from occassionally smelly urine...don't see much results yet. I'm taking mine on an empty stomach (been on it now for three weeks) and am curious to know if I'd get better results taking it after a meal...?
You all have been a great help in the past!
i do seem to remember one of the forum regulars reporting taking their Lugols with food instead of an empty stomach and it seemed to cause less detox symptoms.
i wonder if this might mean the Lugols is not absorbed as well with food, i thought it was supposed to line the coating of the stomach.
i do admit to being confused with this myself. it would be easier for me to be able to take lugols with food rather than on an empty stomach then waitiing 30-60 mins to eat or 60 mins to do the salt loading, then a further 30-60 mins to eat
Lugol's makes my stomach warm. No change with iodoral. I have taken both with food, and alternately with the salt push. I have taken the salt push with food. I have not noticed a lessening of detox symptoms at all no matter how I take iodine. I don't have a warm stomach when I take Lugol's with food.
I do both - in the morning its on an empty stomach, the remaining doses on a semi empty stomach inbetween meals. There is supposed to be something good about lining the stomach, so I get that partly. I dont wanna overcomplicate things either though - afterall, in nature it would come with food not in drops ;)
