I want to shout from the mountain that Iodine did for me what nothing else could in 4 years!!
It was Tonie on lymebusters I think who recommended iodine. I bought tincture of Iodine and Betadine at Walgreens the other day and you can also get the Povidine brand there (for internal use I bought Lugol'sIodine recommended on one of the boards but it has not arrived yet.)
The tincture stings a bit but the same day it starts to DRY OUT any issues. The skin starts to pucker and turn a darker color as it actually heals, like when you were a kid and scraped yr knee. Then it starts to peel off!!!!
I am still in shock. I owe it all to Tonie who posted about iodine a few years back. Sorry I dont know the benefits of internal use but you can believe I am dying to see what it does for me.
