I took Iodine in water only a few times all these years. Lugols in an italian espresso is a treat, energizing too!
Tea, juice, in bread, soups; all good Mix with iodine, IMO. While forums like these are good for sharing experiences, I am glad I was to do it for a full year by myself before I found the VWT. Why, because I had to rely on the messages my body told me, not confused by too many options and opinions.
Ps, the only complaint I have about US, is that your coffee is too damn weak :)
