I know the skin is powerful way to absorb iodine, more than it seems. I remember once I painted a large area before badtime and when I was trying to get to sleep, I felt that bromide bad mood come on. I was suprised since I hadn't taken any internally that day, then I remembered...oh yeah! It was bad enough to go get some salt and a selenium tablet !
That was pretty good. It was impressive that a large and heavily painted area really can give ya a "big hit' of iodine!
I was keeping the candida down with the SSKI but I have been feeding the yeast by eating coffee cakes, stuff like that on the weekend.
