Dr. Abrahams recommends taking 50 mg of Iodine/Iodide as Lugol’s solution (8 drops) daily for 3 months as a loading dose. Lugol’s solution is available online at varying concentrations. Then his recommendation is that dose should be gradually reduced to the 12.5 mg (2 drops) maintenance dosage under the supervision of a knowledgeable health care professional. Dr Abrahams feels that 14 to 15 mg. of iodine/iodide daily is the upper maximum of safety for long term use.
but when treating LIFE THREATENING diseases it would not be unheard of to use upward of 200 drops a day in divided doses.
The highest dosage I have heard any doctor using today is 100 mg and that is quite a bit when you take Iodine in a form where you can taste and appreciate what you are taking into your body.
When treating LIFE THREATENING DISEASES
Dr. Michael B. Schachter says, “The treatment dose when a person is Iodine insufficient is generally between 12.5 mg and 50 mg daily.
“Extremely high doses of Iodine can have serious side effects, but only a small fraction of such extreme doses are necessary to kill influenza viruses,” continues Derry
