To anyone reading I strongly suggest you do not use Lugols iodine.
I put 2 drops of Lugols on my thyroid as a trial, what was to come I had no idea. Since then I have had to contend with the following
-H-pylori infection/ulcers/acid reflux
-muscle weakness (havent been able to lift weights in months)
-receding gums/dental problems
-hair shedding/itchy scalp (did not have this before)
-tingling in hands and feet
