I emailed Tahoma Clinic (the place I purchased the SSKI from) and Dr Wright recommends I do not use SSKI for long term. He says if I do, I have to monitor thyroid which would require me to constantly visit the doctor right? It appears I cannot use SSKI long term safely after all without a lot of hassle.
Here is Dr Wright's message:
“Too much Iodine for too long can suppress thyroid function. Many of the uses described for SSKI in the accompanying article are short-term, from a few days or less to a week or two. If SSKI is then stopped, there's almost no chance of significant thyroid suppression. However, if SSKI is to be used for two to three weeks or longer, and especially if it's to be used continuously (for example, COPD or cholesterol-related atherosclerosis) monitoring thyroid function is very important.
Each person is individual in their need for vitamins and minerals and we have thousands of customers who use SSKI without any problem. If you are using it long-term, you may wish to follow Dr. Wright’s suggestion to monitor your thyroid function."
