is only I2. no Iodide
we do not have a definitive on the different types of Iodine
and their role or purpose. we have spotty info from many sources. we also have degrees of disagreement, even amongst the team. most have chosen to go with the Lugols
from the allopathic sources. i have used mostly Lugols
and iodoral. same with wombat. i dont believe V has revealed what he has taken, but he follows the docs pretty close so Lugols
and/or pure KI
is what i would suspect. both Lugol's
solution(10% KI, 5% I2) and SSKI
(super saturated potassium iodide) solution have been standards for well over a century.
depending on your goals, purposes, and current condition, any one of the products available may or may not do what you want. knowing what you want to accomplish is half the goal. then, at least, you will know whether what you are using is working or not.
as far as cayce goes, i like his stuff. it is usually very practical advice that works. he mentions two different forms of iodine, one that is easy to make and one not so easy. i have had some of the nascent iodine that john brookshire(mrnascent) sells and i found it to be a very good product. it healed a wound to the bone in my son's leg with little pain or infection whatsoever and no other treatment, including sewing it up.
highonwater has been taking phil's detoxified iodine which is also supposed to be a cayce recipe. i got started last year with a bottle of atomidine while waiting on my first pint of lugols. i have been through a few pints since then.
it all depends, again, on what you want to accomplish.
I2 creates oxidative stress. i believe this is the toxicity which is talked about so often and so blithely with no knowledge whatsoever on the subject. i KNOW this because of my experience. i reached a ceiling of 300mgs in the form of lugols and it was kind of stressful. i put magnets on my dropper bottle to simulate the magnetic field in the electrolyte bath which cayce describes. these magnets are much more powerful than cayce could have imagined in his day. they came from computer hard drives. by simply affixing these magnets to the bottle in the manner described, i was able to double my dose from 300mg to 600mg. to get higher than that, i had to go to my own solution which was lower in I2. then i was able to do as much as i wanted. a gram was no problem then.
i would love to experiment with really high doses of the detoxified forms to see what they would do but they are too expensive for me to do that.
there is more, of course. lots more.
