Re: blood sugar question and also vertical vs. horizontal dropper.....


The only way I've every known to approximate the number of drops in a bottle is to count them. I usually track my daily dose, and make notes if I change it. So when you start a fresh bottle, note the date, and when you finish it, count up your drops. Voila! BTW, I've never come up with what the vendor says I will.

Maybe the dropper question was in "Iodine Answers."

CALCULATING THE DOSE By LN Dolls

LUGOL'S

Lugol's is a liquid. Drops can be added to water, juice, soup, wine or scotch and drunk. The correct way to make a drop of
Lugol's is to hold the dropper vertical and squeeze the rubber topper. Each VERTICAL drop is 6.25 mg of iodine. Then you can do the math by counting the drops.

HORIZONTAL drops - with the dropper held side to side are twice as much - 12.5 mg
Iodine per drop. How do we know? We measured, a couple times. Why?? Because some of us wanted to know how many drops of iodine are in an ounce bottle. Several of us found out then that we were taking twice the amount of iodine that we thought - because we were using horizontal drops.

IODORAL is 12.5 mg iodine per tablet.

Regarding high blood sugar, I found this thread in which Trapper suggested that with iodine the pancreas starts working more properly, and may now be reflecting the true impact of your diet. I can't know this for sure, but you might experiment with testing one hour after eating and seeing if your blood sugar is rising higher than, say, 140. Lower would be better. But higher might mean you're eating too many carbs now. If you're not already grain-free, consider a 30-day experiment to see if maybe you're approaching a new normal way to eat, and iodine is nudging you there.

All this said without knowing much about your circumstances, of course. :)

This is weird!!! by  spudlydoo  2 year  685  Iodine Supplementati

Since starting Iodine and companion supps I have completely lost my 'sweet tooth', my partner was eating some chocolate honeycomb last night and asked me if I would like some. The thought of eating it actually made me feel sick. I bypass the chocolate and lolly isle in the supermarket without a twitch. This is weird for me, no more cravings for sugar :) Has anyone else experienced this???

regards , spud.

      I'm really interested as to why this would happen, I have had a lot of problems with my blood glucose levels over the years. I have never had high BSL, my problem has always been low BSL to the point of coma twice in the last 5 years. I have always craved carbs and sugar. Since starting Iodine supps, my BSL is stable at 3.8 to 5, It is a bit low for the docs liking, but it has been stable for months now, I do a BSL check everyday, and its is so stable its getting boring :)this has never happened before but is a good thing. I have read a little on the thyroid and regulating BSL, but this does not explain my now aversion to anything sugary or refined carbs, eg: cakes, pastry, bread, pasta etc. Maybe a psychological thing????

        i have seent he same thing with high blood sugar. Iodine makes insulin work and keeps the pancreas from over working. it balances hormones by completing the wheel of manufacture and use. before iodine, your pancreas was getting signals that told it you needed more insulin. you have broken that cycle and stopped that signal.

          Thanks trapper, that makes sense, as before I was making too much insulin, and my levels are now within normal limits. I guess my body doesn't want sugar or refined carbs anymore and its sending signals to my brain that me feel ill if I consider eating any. I really feel as though my whole body is becoming much more balanced.

        • Very interesting thread. by  cora  2 year  556
          I'd like to know if many others have noticed this. The current group. I've had the same experience since the Big Imbibe. I remember when N mentioned long ago that Lugols altered his appetite. It was one of the clinchers for me, and that day decided it time to get on the bus and see where it took me.

          T, I wonder if you'll clarify some of your comments.

          1) >> i have seent he same thing with high blood sugar.

          On the board, personally, real world, or combo? By "the same thing" you're suggesting reported blood sugar levels (via testing) or sugar cravings?

          2)>>Iodine makes insulin work and keeps the pancreas from over working.

          What exactly do you mean by makes insulin "work"?

          3)>>it balances hormones by completing the wheel of manufacture and use.

          "...by completing the wheel of manufacture and use." Interesting language, but I'm unclear and don't want to presume incorrectly.

          4)>>before iodine, your pancreas was getting signals that told it you needed more insulin. you have broken that cycle and stopped that signal.

          I'm think you're suggesting the brain was receiving signals (sent by the pancreas?) if in fact what you've noted regarding pancreas function, insulin, and Iodine are accurate. I need to look into all this and will. .

    Don't forget that Iodine kills candida, and that candida can cause cravings for sweets ....

      >>Iodine kills candida

      I wonder if (wish that) we could open that up to ALL forms of yeasts (overgrowth), fungus, molds, microbes. Overgrowth in general of all the above. Bacteria, virus.

      I also wonder if it doesn't actually "kill", but rather inhibits the organism (candida), converts it back from mycelial and/or prevents hyphae formation. No confirmation on this whatsoever- but I've understood that, in vitro, Iodine is often used for this purpose (of examination).

      • Re: Listen to the Flechas audio!  RR by  Mia78  2 year  882
        Listen to the Flechas audio right here on curezone. He goes into detail about iodine's impact on the insulin receptors and ALL the body's hormone receptors. (That's why iodiners experience a jump in libido too!) He is very clear on this and you won't be left to thinking, huh, what'd he say?. I do believe its after the second hour though.

        That audio is always at the top of the must listen to for anybody who wants to know the lowdown on iodine.
