I use pH Testing tape to test my pH of my saliva. What I read is your saliva should be 7.35 and when I am real close to that, I don't have any shoulder pain at night when I sleep on that side. I learned about 8 months ago that if you're low on iodine, your thyroid doesn't function properly. It affects your mental attitude, like stress, depression and emotional feelings. I was with a lot of stress from my was sent home Aug 18th with 2 weeks to live because all the drugs they had given her the last year had almost destroyed her liver. Also, my mother of 102 years old was in an assisted living place and didn't like it. She was having leg pains, upset stomach and headache. I gave her colloidal silver, change her calcium to EZSORB powder and started putting clear iodine on her throat and in not time she was happy and not having leg pain. To test your iodine level, you put a 1" ring of the brown iodine on your stomach and if it is gone in 24 hours, you're low. I get the clear iodine from Albertson Gro for $1.29 plus tax. I put it on my thyroid under my chin. In 30 minutes the stress feeling is gone. You won't over dose as your body won't take it in if it doesn't need it. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
I have been taking iodine, Lugol's 6 drops a day for a few months now, my problem being hypothyroidism. My general health has improved, but going by my urine test i am only half way there. I'm sure by the time i have my next test i will feel great!
hi, i suffered with weight gain and thinning hair, although blood tests showed borderline hypothyroidism i started taking sea kelp and at last my weight has slowly started to come off and as a plus my hair grows much thicker and quickly. i will take this supplement for life.
I am using Iodine to cut off the blood supply to a tumor also, Saw Palmetto, as well as Chickweed, kelp has so much to offer.
EC: Fran, what type of tumor are you trying to treat? Thanks...
Hello I am looking for Lugol's Iodine in Alberta, do you have a location here where I could purchase it?
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Hi there, I have been reading and looking for a long time in order to find Lugol's in the Great Toronto Area. There is a compounding pharmacy in Mississauga called Hooper's. They sell Lugol's, 25 ml for $4.95 tax.
Since I found it and started taking Lugol almost 2 months ago I became a new person. My yeast infections are gone, hopefully forever, I sleep well, no more PMS. I wish all of you a healthy and happy life.
Hello, I have a quick question, where can you get this Lugol's solution from. Can you please advise.

I have read the e-mails here telling where to find Lugol's Solution in its original strength (5%/10%), and it seems the confusion from the Canadian people is that perhaps they are phoning the various brand name pharmacies in the stores and asking them, when it turns out they are talking to mainly clueless floor help instead of asking the pharmacist directly, preferably in person!
I have found that now,April 2010, when following up by e-mail to the Help or "Contact Us" links on the company sites, I get answers.
Most use a fill-in e-mail form on their page, not a browser e-mail. So you won't have a record of the sent e-mail.
One specific company, Rexall, a drugstore name here,when called said they didn't have it. But when I e-mailed their company site (just Search any engine for this)they replied in 2 days and even gave me the exact branch store and name of pharmacist I could ask to order it in for me.
I also tried:
local health food stores
Any Search will show up the main Canadian maker of LUGOL'S in Coquitlam. I used that name/link to the item page in my e-mails to show them what I wanted exactly. There is a 100 ml and a 500 ml size.
I also contacted them by e-mail and they said 'YES, our product IS available NO PRESCRIPTION, but you mustfind out from the retail company if their wholesaler can get it in for you!
Sources for Lugol's in Canada: Two very inexpensive sources of Lugol's in Canada are Kripps and Finlandia Pharmacies in Vancouver. No prescription. Gaby
I cannot find lugol's anywhere in canada- it is possibly not approved. i did see lugol's iodine for marine purposes such as fish tanks. is this the same and can i take it internally or paint it? thanks, Brad

where in philipppines can i buy lugols solution?
Many thanks for all the info on the different types of iodine, very much appreciated. I live in the Philippines now, and I've been looking for a safe source of iodine intake for a variation in alkalizing the gut(I already alkalize with lemon + sodium bicarb + water). Since much of the well-water in the Philippines isn't safe for white men to drink(but Filipinos seem drink it without problems), I also want to use iodine for killing the bacteria etc in the well-water as well as well as deal successfully with all the fungus and yeasts that continually assault our own bodies every day.
I can't buy Lugol's in the Philippines, but I can buy the 2% iodine tincture and the Povidone(Oral wash) iodine. Many thanks for the thorough descriptions of how to use these different forms of iodine orally.
Just one question which might interest Ted.
Have you ever looked at the anti-cancer properties of Graviola(Brazilian Paw-Paw or Sousop - Annona muricata)? This plant has quite a history. About 10 or more years ago this plant was researched by a large pharma company. What they found was that the plant extract killed just cancer cells outright in large numbers - up to 12 different forms of cancer - because it destroyed the cancer cells anaerobic ATP pump(energy source) and caused apoptosis - but left normal human cells alone. For seven years this pharma company tried to synthesise the main two cancer-killing chemicals - unsuccessfully. This pharma company kept graviola's cancer-curing properties a secret and told no one, but one of their biochemists left the company and informed a natural health institute in the US. Purdue University picked it up and are running with it now. It appears, much as Ted has inferred, that the anti-cancer attributes(and other properties) of graviola are due to synergistic chemical combinations and actions of this plant. Apparently this plant also kills bacteria, fungi, worms, parasites, viruses - but care has to be taken replacing the good bacteria in the gut if you take this herb. Normally taken as a tea just made from the leaves and stems of the graviola. I only mention this plant because there is a graviola tree growing about 30 feet away from my house in the Philippines. Worth a look.
This site is packed with such useful information and its all relatively simple and cheap. Many thanks to Ted for all his minute detailed descriptions and to all other contributors as well.
I've found Lugol's Iodine at Fruits and Roots in Bryanston. And its really cheap at R10 for a little bottle and at two drops a day will last me quite a while...
Hi! We are moving to Thailand in a couple of weeks, and I'm wondering how easy it is to get Lugol's? We will be living in Chiang Mai. Thanks!
I'm from Philadelphia, PA and wanted to know where I can buy Lugol's Iodine from? Can this be used internally and externally? Thanks so much!
