Hi guys, I tried using iodine (J Crow's Lugol Iodine 5%) to heal my cavities, and I got the worst burning sensation on my tongue. I used 10 drops and swished it in my mouth for about a minute, and by the time I spit it out, my tongue could no longer taste anything. I also had terrible gas, and had to consume large quantities of aloe vera concentrate to soothe my stomach. It's been three days now and my tongue is slowly healing.
On the other hand, I did see a lot of the black stuff from my cavities come out (not everything as I had to spit it out). I don't know why but even taking one drop causes gas in my stomach, so to those using this method, just be cautious please. It does help, but I really wish that Njoy had stated specifically what brand of iodine she was using, and how many percent it was. Using 10 drops of the 5% was hell!
