"So, actually, I'm curious, since there was no answer to the question about using nascent iodine, can I just dissolve an iodoral pill in water and use that?"
Iodoral was intended to be ingested, I don't believe anyone has tried what your suggesting? Knowing that putting nascent, logols, SSKI solutions with coco oil or other oils and/or water on skin IN GENERAL is not as efficacious as ingesting, getting it in your cells... Well..Try it! And report back to us! Improvising with what you have.. you may find a way that may help! or don't and order some solution and use known ways that some have reported here.
Remember its a system that needs all co supplements to be fully utilized by your cells
In other words your mileage may vary
