I've read through a lot of the old posts and learned a lot. I just ordered my first bottle of Lugol's and plan to start slowly with 1-2 drops/day and then gradually increase to around 50 mg. I'm wondering - to those of you who have been taking this for a while, how long do you continue with it and do you gradually reduce the amount back down once you feel you are no longer deficient? I have symptoms of hypothyroidism and have a fibroid in my uterus. I'm hoping this will help with that and I hope to feel better overall.
Oh, one more question - is it really important to take selenium with this? I will need to pick some up if so. Thanks so much.
