Thank you SO MUCH everyone, for your help and advice:)
I do have a lot to learn here, so again, thank you for taking so much time to clarify things. I get it now. This is why there was all the talk about using Vit.C to help boost the Iodide content of the Lugol's right? I took some in lemon juice this morning and hardly tasted a thing, so if this is an ok or better way to ingest it, I will.
My mom is probably going to buy the Idoral tablets, since she doesn't want to deal with liquids. At This point, considering the state of the world, I'm going to go with my gut, and it tells me to supplement now with what we have, to start slow and build up consistently. And from what I gather, there really is no need to go above the 13mg or so dose that is recommended by the CDC during times of crisis, correct?
I also plan on taking Bentonite clay a few times a day, to help with any possible detox, and also as a general preventative. And of course, adding as many good minerals/healthy fats/plants as I can to my daily diet.
Again, thank you everyone. May God Bless you All:)
