Would putting this solution in a humidifier set to run overnight accomplish the same thing?
I purchased Lugols Iodine (12% solution). I don't understand how to use this for the Lugols nasal treatment. Specifications for this particular brand are: Contains Iodide 4% Potassium Iodide 8% Manufactured in distilled water. Based on 0.5ml per drop contains (est. per drop) Iodine 2mg Potassium Iodide 4mg Not a science nerd and hoping somebody would kindly enlighten me. Thanks. Sharon
Hi, does anyone have the instructions for using lugol's iodine in the ears?
@Bill, Thanks very much for this remedy. I used it before running errands on Friday. I also wore a mask of course. Burned a tiny bit after I snorted the mixture to the back, but not too bad. Definitely went down my throat. I love having the extra protection when I am out and about... and then when I get home. I caught myself touching my nose as soon as I walked in the front door before I had washed my hands. Eeeeks!! Good to know it lasts approx 2 hours. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
Lugol's Nasal Rinse
Bill, Can you put a drop of Lugol on your nose, would that work also?
Dear Sirs, Thank you for your e mail with information regarding Lugol's iodine nasal spray as a possible aid in preventing the Covid-19 virus entering ones body. My husband is a GP and whilst very interested in your article, he wonders why you didn't perform a double blind trial. As it stands perhaps the mice would have their own immunity formatting this disease. Can you kindly give me some more information why you didn't choose the double blind trial. Secondly, do you know of any after effects or downsides to basically inhaling iodine and whisky. Thank you very much for your work which I'm always interested in and look forward to hearing from you prior to buying some for my entire family. Yours sincerely, Jean
Lugol's Nasal Rinse
Bill, I need some advice about the iodine mixing in a spray bottle I have. Using the 2% solution, how do I mix for use in the following spray bottle. Basic Care Nasal Moisurizer Saline nasal spray 3 FL (88 ML) I need to know the exact mixing of iodine drops @2% & water by weight 3oz = (88 M ), (I`m new at this so please be patient ). For use with a nebulizer @ 2% idione, how long per treatment session?
Thank you, Bill, for your information on Lugol's and the coronavirus. It's very much appreciated. While I take it orally (sometimes) and topically for wounds, I never thought of using it nasally. Another good defense against what's out there! Take care.
Hello Bill and EC, I hope you are all hale and hearty during this pandemic. Since Ted's unfortunate incident there would have been a big gap in scientific contributions to EC. Bill, you have stepped up to help fill that void. Your recent contribution regarding the Lugol's nasal solution is just one example. Thanks for your work Bill and everyone helping out EC. Bill Thompson, you're the man. Stay healthy everyone. Regards, Daniel.
Lugol's Nasal Rinse
Iodine Kills ALL Viruses By Yohanan Burket
A survivor of the Avian flu in 2007, I have been actively investigating various modalities to get rid of any type of flu, regardless of the strain. As it turns out, there was a universal medicine used over 110+ years ago that did just that: it completely destroyed all bacteria, viruses, and even fungus. I speak with experience; I can now get rid of the flu of any strain within a half hour. Doctors are aware of the antiseptic properties of iodine, as they use it before operating on surgery patients. However, it is not promoted to the public as a general remedy.
Various Other Remedies for Influenza (the Grippe)
Over the years, I have experimented with various other remedies for the flu, all of which only diminished the misery and the length of the flu infection, but none of which could stop the flu in its tracks.
Here are the various remedies I tried:
1. Vitamin C, 2 grams orally
2. Elderberry, said to be the only herb to be effective against viruses according to research
3. Vitamin D3 or lots of sunlight
4. Honey, Lemon, and Apple Cider Vinegar
6. Hydrogen Peroxide sprayed into the throat
7. Oregano oil, one drop under the tongue
8. Colloidal silver, 10 ppm, a tablespoon at a time
9. Olive leaf tincture
10. Boneset tincture for muscular aches
11. Thyme tincture for a runny nose
12. NOW Amino complete (NOT BCCA; it is worthless, as are any protein sources) for energy
13. Niacin (nicotinic acid) vitamin B3, the flushing kind, in 100-400mg doses
Simply put, iodine kills viruses on contact. Unlike some modalities, iodine in the correct form can even be taken orally. Never take drugstore iodine, as it is clearly marked “FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY”. The reason for this is because drugstore iodine contains toxic isopropyl alcohol, NOT because iodine is toxic. Iodine had been safely used internally for decades before the medical mafia took over in 1911. See the work of iodine specialists such as Dr. David Derry, Dr. Guy Abraham, Dr. David Brownstein, and Dr. Gorge Flechas to see the research.
Some think that colloidal silver is the universal medicine, and indeed, it is a superior antibacterial (antibiotics are antibacterial). However, it only weakly suppresses viruses, and cannot kill them. I know personally as I once offered an antiviral nose spray based upon colloidal silver. The colloidal silver kept the viral situation in my nose from getting worse, but could not get rid of the viruses. Only iodine can do that, as iodine is antiviral as well, whereas colloidal silver is only weakly anti-viral. Of course the concentration of the iodine used is important, and the Povidine iodine in drugstores is only 1% and is essentially useless. To kill viruses in the nose, a 2-3% concentration of iodine is needed. To kill skin fungus, aka cancer, you need a 7% iodine concentration, as proven by Dr. Tulio Simoncini of Italy, a former oncologist.
Dr. David Brownstein writes:“So effective is iodine that aerosols can be effective in sterilizing a room at levels not even detectable by humans.”
Dr. Marc Sircus writes: “I have suggested that people put iodine into a nebulizer for aerosol treatment for transdermal effect into the lung tissues in the case of lung cancer, emphysema, asthma, and tuberculosis.” To which I would add viruses of any type, including mutated viruses and corona COVID-19.
Ways to Apply Iodine to Kill Coronavirus (COVID19) or Any Other Virus
The highly contagious Coronavirus can enter the body through the nose, mouth, eyes, and ears. Yes, even the ears can receive viruses. Taking iodine in the form of Lugol's iodine internally is a good first step, but one must start with a small dosage and work up to larger doses over a period of weeks to avoid severe itching, especially in people over 50.
Lugol's iodine is elemental iodine mixed with potassium iodide to make it soluble in distilled water, and was discovered by Dr. Lugol in France in 1829. It is the best and safest form of iodine, in my opinion.
Iodine taken Internally
Standard Lugol's iodine contains 6.2 mg per drop, where 100 drops equals 1 level teaspoon. This is the European standard drop. The American drop is defined to be 70 drops per level teaspoon. Iodine doctors suggest a daily dose of around 2 drops daily for optimum health. For cancer patients, the dosage can go up to 300 mg every other day, called pulsed dosing. Iodine, besides being essential for the brain and thyroid, is also utilized by several other organs in the body, including the skin. Taking iodine only internally will not make one immune from a direct viral attack, however.
Gargling with Iodine
Putting roughly 10 drops of Lugol's iodine into 50 ml of water and gargling with it will instantly get rid of coughing, meaning coughing is completely gone within a half hour. I offer two concentrations of Lugol's iodine. Hormone Catalyst is Lugol's iodine at 6.2 mg/drop, and External Tumor Remover is Strong Lugol's iodine (without alcohol) at 8.7 mg/drop.
Using Iodine Nose Drops
Carrying a nasal sprayer with you is convenient when you are not at home, as you can kill viruses that enter your nasal passages instantly with diluted iodine. I offer the Virus Terminator, which contains diluted Lugol's iodine with colloidal silver. It offers a one-two punch to any type of pathogen that enters your nostrils. A large, 250 ml Virus Terminator Refill bottle is also available.
Using Iodine in a Nebulizer
The same concentration of iodine used in the nasal sprayer can be put into a nebulizer, which has the advantage of sterilizing not only the throat, mouth, and nose, but also your eyes and ears. The portable, battery powered Nebulizer can be taken anywhere, but the downside is its cost.
Using Iodine in a Humidifier
The older steam humidifier or the newer cold mist humidifer are good for sterilizing rooms. I've discovered that a concentration of 15 drops of Hormone Catalyst (6.2 mg/drop) per 100 ml. (100 ml = 3.4 oz U.S.).
Using Iodine in a Vaping Device
The electronic cigarettes have a provision to add external liquids to the base liquids. The base liquids are provided by the Vaping stores, namely Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol. I will offer the mixture for customers complete with the addition of an appropriate amount of iodine. The Vaping device is a low cost alternative to the Nebulizer, only costing one third as much, and is just as portable. It fills the lungs with iodine completely, eliminating any lurking viruses or bacteria. When exhaling, you can also blow the “smoke” out of your nostrils to disinfect them, too. It is a superb solution for someone who already has coronavirus. I am now offering the iodine cigarette (vaping device), minus tobacco or nicotine.
Using Iodine Away From Home
The Virus Terminator nasal spray, the vaping device, and the battery operated portable nebulizer are all good products to take with you to work or any other public outing. A small, 30 ml bottle of Hormone Catalyst (Lugol's iodine) is handy if you want to also be able to gargle to promptly get rid of a cough.

Bill, How long should this treatment of Lugol's and water up the nose protect against viruses for please?
