Also, therapeutic ranges of Iodine is actually lower than what you state. In the Brownstein book, he cites an effective dose to be between 12 and 50 mg per day. Dr. Guy Abraham goes with 6 to 50 mg. But the consensus in this forum seems to be working yourself to 100+ mg as barreling through can resolve detox symptoms sooner. I think it worked for me, but I also think it depends on the person.
