I'm one of the original Iodiner's following Vulcanels lead back in Feb 07. Began with small amounts, increased to 200mg or so for 3-4 months and then dropped back to a "maintenance" dose, about 50-60mg. All from Lugol's 5%.
Never had any significant benefits, but continued out of a belief in the Science I'd read (mostly researched by you guys).
4 days ago, I increased to 400-500mg per day. Didn't increase slowly, just slammed it up.
Interestingly, all the beginning "detox" symptoms have returned...brown pee, zits, headache, runny nose, etc, plus a few others related to the palatability of such large amounts.
The question is what does this say about the theory of detoxing bromides, fluorides, mercury, and so on?
I believe Abraham, Brownstein, etc suggested following just such a protocol would flush everything out in 6 mos or so.
Are you other long-termers willing to try a similar increase to see if you have similar results?
