I have pretty significant beard and head dandruff. I've seen it suggested on these forums to use SSKI for that, but I couldn't quite envision how it would be done. Should I put a drop on my beard and spread with my hand? How many drops for a full head? Should I try to get my hair out of the way?
50/50 lugols/water. Great. Just not sure how to avoid the hair and really get it right on the scalp. Grizz or others, can I use nascent to the same effect? I ask because I use the iodoral pills, not lugols, but I have nacsent liquid.
"So, actually, I'm curious, since there was no answer to the question about using nascent iodine, can I just dissolve an iodoral pill in water and use that?"
Iodoral was intended to be ingested, I don't believe anyone has tried what your suggesting? Knowing that putting nascent, logols, SSKI solutions with coco oil or other oils and/or water on skin IN GENERAL is not as efficacious as ingesting, getting it in your cells... Well..Try it! And report back to us! Improvising with what you have.. you may find a way that may help! or don't and order some solution and use known ways that some have reported here.
Remember its a system that needs all co supplements to be fully utilized by your cells
In other words your mileage may vary
I have never tried SSKL but my uncle once recommended me to try this Beardilizer's beard wax look at this page as it contains American Shea Butter, Mexican Candelilla wax, Greek Olive Oil, Greek Rosemary Leaf Oil, etc. This Greek Rosemary Leaf Oil helps to protect from dandruff and it would be always better to avoid using the same products for beard and head.
Colloidal Silver kills ALL dandruff on contact and it will take a good 3 months to return. So apply Colloidal Silver to the scalp & beard about 4 x per year or as required. This treatment for dandruff sometimes lasts much longer.
Hi, would be grateful for any help on this - I was taking a low dose of Iodine following the low protocol and got up to about 3mg over a 3 month period. I had to stop 6 weeks ago due to very bad detox symptoms. These are still quite challenging - tiredness, sweating, tingling, palpitations, flu like symptoms, I have been unable to work. Would salt help with this even though I am not currently taking iodine? I am still taking mag, selenium, vit C, B complex. My doctor has told me I have a virus based on swollen lymph nodes in the neck and raised white blood count. Thanks.
A maximum of 3 mg Iodine stopped 6 weeks ago is not giving you a problem now. If your doctor has run a chemistry panel -- and you should have a copy of any tests done -- be sure your serum sodium is about 142-144 and your serum potassium is about 4.2-4.4. Your symptoms are possibly due to low potassium. We can need more potassium when an invigorated metabolism needs it for growth.
On the other hand, if your symptoms are truly a virus, both Colloidal Silver and Iodine are excellent anti-virals. I'm sorry you only got to 3 mg iodine, because the upside of using at least 100 mg is a more vigorous immune system.
Yes, I know you are right about the iodine, 3mg is very low. It just seems that it may have triggered a virus or a detox that my system could not handle. My doctor only ran blood count, glucose and protein. All that showed up was slightly raised total white blood and slightly raised neutrophil. However, I did have potassium and sodium done in september (6 months ago) my serum potassium was 4.2 then and sodium was 139 so lower than 142. I added 1/4tsp of pink salt to my 2L water bottle last night and today and I did feel a bit better. I know they checked all the electrolytes when I went to the ER 6 weeks ago and they told me everything was within range. I think my adrenals have took a hammering and that is where the palps are coming from.
Sadly, lab results that are "in range" will not necessarily support optimal health. Those ranges include the results of people who are very ill.
You could be right about your adrenals having taken a hit. Salt is their friend. Consider trying 1/2 tsp pink salt today, and at least 2 quarts of water. A quarter teaspoon per quart might help revive you. A sodium result of 139 6 months ago could be worse by now, or at least not much improved.
Been on Iodine for 6 days, started at 100mgs, but worked my way up to about 190mgs today. Anyhow feeling pretty good these days, and better every day, especially compared to the horrible experience from my first time around.
Anyhow today I picked up some 20mt borax. I took about 1/8tsp in about .5 litres today. Im looking for some clear thoughts, better health, libido and energy. So I took it, and I have this dull ache in my testicles now. While I knew this could be a side effect, I looked it up and came accross this below. Will this affect my fertility? because if so, I have zero interest to be infertile, especially since I have no kids, but I'd like to have some in the next couple years.
Anyhow appreciate your advice?
Boric Acid is a Neurotoxin
Birth defects that can be caused by boric acid include brain and skeletal abnormalities and infertility of male offspring. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, animal studies have shown that boric acid has an affinity for male testicles: "It appears that males are most sensitive to boric acid/boric salts. A major target... is the testes." Poisoning produces inflammation and atrophy of tubules and lowers sperm count.
Repeated low dose exposure to boric salts used as a food preservative in imported noodles, steamed rice, caviar and meatballs, has been implicated in cases of liver cancer over five to ten years. Boric salts have been banned as a preservative for food in the United States and many other countries, but they are still used illegally.
Borax and boric acid are two different things. Borax is converted to boron in your body, which is a necessary mineral. Boric Acid is a poison used in eye drops and to kill vermin, but should never be taken internally. What you took is a normal dosage. Men should take 1/4 tsp. per liter and women 1/8 tsp. per liter of water. I don't think your pain has anything to do with the borax. I take it daily, and never have pain from it. However, every time I start back on iodine, I get horrible pain in my right knee, where a lot of parasites seem to lurk. Not saying you have parasites, but die-off in body parts can cause pain.
Thanks, well that sounds like a relief. one thing that's now creeping up on me (30mins-hour after my original post) is the back of my neck is getting hot. it's happened before, and gone away. any idea what that is?
"Anyhow today I picked up some 20mt borax. I took about 1/8tsp in about .5 litres today. Im looking for some clear thoughts, better health, libido and energy."
If you drank 5 liters of water in one day I suggest that was a little to much, nothing to do with the borax.
Anyway; you need to read up, educate yourself in both Iodine and boron, also differentiate what your read as the article your refer to is full of factuals. As borax is completely non carciogenic, even Science agree whith that. It is now used as a big pharma cancer remedy (brain)
We have several good threads about borax / boron, but here is a start; show that as much as 20 something mg boron per kilo body weight is needed to affect fertility of male rats /rabbits. http://www.greenfacts.org/en/boron/boron-greenfacts-level2.pdf
Also read my recent detox-post; all kind of symptoms can show up in a detox phase. Some related to iodine, bromide excretion, others to your health history.
That's interesting. I'll keep taking it. I'm actually up to 200 Mgs of Iodine after a week, take my supplements, and day 2 of borax, and I feel pretty good today. A little more tired than usual (pre Iodine) , but feel more clear headed. One thing that affects me though is alcohol. Takes about 1/2 as much to feel the effects. Maybe it's just because I'm still new to this whole thing...
Hi there, I don't know why exactly you are "taking" borax? Borax is poisones to be digested. You should not be doing this unless advised. I believe borax can have an affect fertility, but there are many studies that are inconclusive

Good article, thanks. Everyone has to make the choice for themselves, and I've made mine. ;)
Women freak when I tell them I haven't had a PAP in 6 years and a mammogram in 10. Oh well, maybe it will make them think twice when they have their legs up in the air and their boobs smashed like a pancake! LOL, sorry guys.
Once again I feel like a closet health nut. My small town is still brain washed. I'll pray for a buddy to join me in my nutty ways! In the meantime, I have all you sane guys and gals to chat with online.
I have a feeling the real love is for the $$$$ and not the individual. I am another person who has never had a mammogram and endured the shocked looks of others. I am glad I am not the only 50+ out their who is going against the tide and actually feels good about my decision. My goodness, no flu shots, no mammograms, got off all my expensive prescriptions. How is the local medical community going to survive if everyone starts thinking like me?
I found a lump in 1997 at 36. I went for a mammogram. Nothing. Ultrasound, positive. Mammogram every year. 2003 Mammogram . . . clean bill. I found lump, again. Double mastectomy. Movin on. 2013. INSIST on a mammogram . . . for what??? My implants? Yes. Nothing. Biopsies? Positive.
That's three for three with me. Worthless radiation. And, WHY, and this happens OFTEN, am I sent for mammograms, cat scans, MRIs of MY FAKE BREASTS? (Answer below)
I have seen some accounts on here about bromide being detoxed through sweat. Is the amount release profound enough to try to sweat daily, or is it only mild? Looking for ways to help move bromides out.
when i first hit Iodine hard i was sunbathing all summer and sweating profusely and i could not let my sweat get in my eyes. felt like acid burning them. i was literally in pain until i got it washed out.
bromine, the word, is from the greek meaning 'stinks like a goat'. if you are sweating out bromine you will know.
Sounds like you may not have had the companion supplements in place before you started Lugol's. Vitamin C and B vitamins come to mind in particular right now. Start some salted water, both drinking and gargling with it.
