    Hi, i just thought I would share with you my own experiences with Lugol’s iodine and also a warning. You can definitely take too much iodine internally, so caution is warranted. However, it is readily absorbed through the skin, and can not reach toxic levels via this method because of osmosis.

    I have had a lot of success, even miraculous success, putting lugol iodine 5% directly on my chest when congested. The next morning, I always feel tremendously better. if I feel like the glands in my throat are swelling or I have that tell-tale tickle, painting my throat in time seems to prevent further development of symptoms.

    Thanks for writing about iodine! I think it is a lost “go to” natural remedy. Also, for the skin absorbtion it must be Lugols. The provisions iodine sold in drug stores has detergents in it to specifically prevent absorbtion through the skin.
