Potassium iodine is very useful for a lot of things and right now it will save your thyroid gland from being destroyed by the radiation from Japan's disaster. The fraud and death adm. is decrying this but the truth is any amount of radiation exposure is not healthy. I don't know if you can still buy the crystals and make your own but what I make is 15%. I suggest that any one taking this should also take this supplement also Beta glucan it puts your immune system into over drive. Also johnathan Wright MD says you should have your thyroid checked when taking sski because it may suppress it. It is real good for a bladder infection and if travling by atr, bus or train will keep you from catching a virus.

I've have swollen & tender lymph nodes under my jaw for a few years and the Dr.'s ignore it. Found the Iodine cure on this website while looking for something else. I painted Potassium iodide on the lymph nodes and the swelling went down within a few hours, as well as the tenderness. Had to paint on again next morning. I've heard Lugol's works better but it hasn't arrived in the mail yet.

Also, took 4 drops in a glass of water on an empty stomach for the stomach flu ( kids have it) and feel better after about an hour. My fingers are crossed.

I've used potassium iodide for some time for sinus infections, colds and for my girlfriend's bladder infections.

KI [potassium] works so well against bladder infections that Kaiser refused to treat my girlfriend with antibiotics on the day of a severe attack because she showed no signs of the usual bacterial infection since, apparently, the KI had destroyed the bacteria by the time she arrived at the doctor's office. She was also asymptomatic by that time.

If taken at the first sign of a cold or flu, it appears to prevent infection or reduce the symptoms. For those who have sinus infections, I add KI or I [iodine] to a saline rinse and that seems to help keep the sinuses clear.

I read that PI [potassium iodide] was used by ophthalmologists, along with niacin, to clear arteries of plaque back in the 60's since it, apparently, dissolves fat. Older doctors said that once upon a time their instructors would mention this fat dissolving ability of iodine.

Research hydrogen peroxide, it's deadly against certain types of cancer. Most organisms that harm the body like low oxygen environments. Hydrogen peroxide is thus toxic to cancer and the bad bacteria found in the body, but not the "good" bacteria.

I've removed basal cell carcinoma an inch in diameter and about 1/8 inch this with 35% hydrogen peroxide in less than a week. I'm not recommending it. At this strength it is quite dangerous unless you know what your doing. I used a Q-tip to administer it and the opposite end to dab off the excess.

3% hydrogen peroxide works quite well for infections. You can find instructions for its use on the internet.

During this time I couldnt eat any vinegar, pork meat, milk or anything that has milk such as yoghurt ice cream etc, no sugar whatsoever or anything with wheat. I went back to my nutritionist after the three weeks and she said that I still have candida. I asked her about ACV and she said that there's no way I can take it because its vinegar and it's fermented and that I cant take anything thats fermented yet on the candida cure page its labeled as a cure... can anyone help me with this please? also she said that candida leads to cancer and fatal illnesses -- is it really that severe?"

Yes, candida can be severe, especially when it goes systemic. I have never tried ACV for this but have read on EC where some said it cleared it up. Don't know what your health care provider had you on that didn't clear it up, but the first article I ever read concerning systemic candida was l5 or more years ago in Omni magazine. It was written by a doctor who was asked to follow a hospitalized patient while his doctor was out of town. According to this doctor, the only thing that everyone agreed on was that the man was slowly approaching death, but nobody had diagnosed any cause. In looking back through all the prior tests that had been done on the man, the only thing he could find ever showing up was some candida in an early admission test. Not having anything else to go on, he started treating the man with SSKI, which was the only thing he knew that was supposed to cure it at that time. The man started showing some improvement, and started gaining a little of his weight back, and eventually was able to go home. This doctor went into more detail on how systemic candida fouled up all the hormones and enzymes in the body. One woman he wrote about being asked to treat was a schizophrenic. He consulted with her psychiatrist to inquire if anything he did might interfere with the psychiatrists treatment and was told that in her present state he didn't think anything could make her worse or interfere. When first seen, the woman was unable to carry on a conversation. It's been awhile since I read this, but it was somewhere between 2-8 weeks of treatment with SSKI for systemic candida, she was able to sit down and intelligently converse with the doctor. You may be able to go on-line or contact Omni and ask for a copy of this article. I don't remember the doctor's name, but it was titled "The Hidden Epidemic". If you are unfamiliar with SSKI (Potassium iodide) google for potassium iodide and pull up the Tahoma Clinic article by Jonathan V. Wright,MD, which will tell you what it is and what it does, as well as how to take it. Hope this is helpful and according to Dr. Wright it is still a very effective treatment for what you have. However I would still leave off the dairy and sweets until you are rid of it.
