In Sept 2013 started Terry Naturally Tri-Iodine 6.25 mg/day/unknown iodine/iodide ratio, 200 mcg Life Ext.

I want to go Whole Hog on Iodine
therapy so thought I would increase iodine/iodide dose to app. 50 ? per day and thought I would begin with Trapper's 1 oz SSKI
and his Lugol's
Can you wonderful people advise me on dosage/recommendations in general?
