I read how gargling/swishing with a few drops of Iodine in water helped someone who was about to have his second gum surgery, battling serious inflammation. I tried it a couple of weeks ago for a sore throat, and felt the result within hours. It makes sense to me now, thinking back when I was a child my mother used to give me Irish Moss tea to drink for sore throat when nothing else would help. It must be the worst tasting tea on the planet, but it did its job.
Today, I woke up with a pimple at my jaw and a sore spot in my mouth, cold and flu symptoms all day. Reading up on the Iodine protocol, and bromide in that context, I believe that after all these years of using a prescription level fluoride toothpaste, I probably, and inadvertently, started a very necessary fluoride detox process - unless it would really be just a cold!
Will check out your blog, yet, digressing as well, have to add that meditation as a spiritual practice is absolutely non-denominational. Many may be getting into it to ease a troubled mind and learn to cope in a reality and society that has become inhumane in so many respects. Healing happens in layers; the soul level is one of them.
