1-2 drops SSKI would be just fine. You have to be comfortable with what you take. The important thing is to take some form of iodine. You're just starting out, you have SSKI on hand, that's just fine. You need to feel what it's like to get some into your body. Later, some indeterminate time in the future, you may want to expand beyond the SSKI. Maybe that'll happen when you finish this bottle and wonder what to do next. That might be a good time to try the iodine available in the UK. Your body's ability to do the iodine/iodide conversion is unknown. People are different. As you experience taking SSKI, you'll see where your thoughts and experiences lead you. Start the journey, read more of the old pages, and see what you connect with. Best wishes!
