I've been lurking around here (first time posting on this forum though) for several weeks and have read this forum and started taking Lugol's 2% (couldn't find the 5%) of 50 mg a day. Didn't notice much except for a bit of a runny nose the first few days and increase of energy. Also, my neck is slimming down and I've lost a few pounds and I'm quite certain that the fibroid tumors in my breasts are doing something (I think they are going away).
I also had started painting some on, some Iodine tincture I had from the drug store. It disappeared pretty fast each time. Still does.
But, today just before going to work I read your post about painting on the solor plexus area and thought, why not?, and did so just before leaving for work, a 7 minute drive.
Well, by the time I got to work, I was so cheerful and energic that I did not only my own job very thoroughly, but everyone else's chores I could find to do. But, it was a very nice calm energy and I was humming and singing out loud. For hours, in fact, for my whole shift I never stopped moving! And the songs I was humming and singing were songs from way way back in time that had never even come to my mind before. But it just wasn't a hyperactive sort of energy at all, just very deliberate, calm, but persistent.
This was unique for me. I usually have enough energy to get through the day in the first place, but not like this.
Also, a sort of weird thing happened. When I first started work, I had to take some money and make some change. I'm pretty good at this, but for this first transaction, I really messed it up, it was like my brain got all kaphooey for just a few moments. But that passed and for the rest of the day I had no trouble at all, in fact, it all seemed easier than usual. I'm lazy at the cash register and just hit the "open" button most of the time and make the change from my head and not the machine. Today it just seemed easier than usual.
And, I also found myself mentally planning and organizing things I need to do, while humming all these old old songs. Now, I don't usually do this, I just sort of tackle things as they come up and procrastinate as long as I can. I know this doesn't sound all that unusual but it was for me. I never hum and sing at work, I have hundreds of people to see all day long and try to keep a low profile. And I don't plan ahead very often, but today I made a whole list of things to do. Well see if I actually do them!
But today I was cheerful, upbeat, focused, full of a good energy, and quite musical. I am generally an upbeat person in the first place, but this went beyond my usual demeanor.
I do not ever get headaches and haven't had one with taking the Iodine at all. But I did have a couple of strange sensations early on today after painting with the Iodine. I got a sort of spasm at my temple, first one temple, then the other, and it hurt a little bit, but not like a headache, just a sort spasm. Happened twice and that's it. The rest of the day was wonderful.
I didn't have the sensations that you did though. Perhaps this technique is targetting individually, or perhaps it was the difference in preparations. This iodine that I used just says it's 2% Iodine with some alcohol and sodium iodide.
Tomorrow I'll use the 2% Lugol's and see what happens.
Thank you for posting about this, it was really a lot of fun for me. What a great way to spend my day at work.
Also, thank you to all who have posted about Iodine, I've learned so much and feel much better in very many ways. I'm grateful to you all.
