Iodine is antiseptic and therefore can kill off parasites and pathogens in the body, so caution must be taken with servings to avoid cleanse reactions from parasite or pathogen die off. Bioavailable iodine won’t harm you, but overdoing any potentially detoxifying supplement or food can make you feel very tired, achey, irritable, restless, or experience many other cleanse reactions, so always start with small servings and gradually increase as long as you don’t have any adverse reactions.
Important! Always take Alive Iodine diluted in water or juice. Undiluted iodine will make your tongue sting strongly and can give you very strong cleanse reactions. Add 1 to 3 drops to a 16-ounce glass of water, one to 3 times per day. If no cleanse reactions are experienced, gradually increase number of drops up to 30 drops 3 times per day. It is difficult to overdose on monatomic iodine from a nutritional standpoint, but cleanse reactions could cause discomfort if too much is taken too fast. Typically it can take months for most people to eliminate iodine deficiencies, so it's a good idea to get nutritional analysis to determine your mineral levels.
When doing bodywork such as massage, especially deep tissue massage therapies, Rolfing, Gua Sha, etc. taking 1/8 teaspoon of Five Alive Scalar Salt with 16 or more ounces of water and Alive Iodine orally as directed above before starting and then every hour for a few hours can help improve results and lessen soreness, stiffness, and aid detoxification. To take the salt, place 1/8 teaspoon of salt on tongue and hold on the roof of the mouth for 30 to 60 seconds, then drink the water and iodine mixture.
Alive Iodine can be applied topically, particularly to scars, as needed. You’re much less likely to experience cleanse reactions this way, but still be cautious and start with minimum amounts and increase gradually. After applying, castor oil can be applied and strongly massaged with gua sha tools to break up scar tissue, help kill parasites and pathogens that hide in scar tissue, and improve the accompanying issues related to acupuncture meridian obstruction by scars. Since iodine stains very strongly, use caution to avoid staining clothes or other items. The iodine will stain skin but will be absorbed by the body. The faster it is absorbed, the more deficient in iodine one is.
One 1/2-ounce bottle contains approximately 820 drops or 328,000 micrograms, or 9 to 273 servings depending on portions. One two-ounce bottle contains approximately 3,280 drops or 1,312,000 mcg, or 36 to 1,093 servings depending on portions.
Since everyone is different, iodine levels in the body can vary widely. It’s therefore a good idea to periodically get testing to determine mineral levels in the body. One affordable and readily available indicator is hair analysis. Analytical Research Labs has a hair tissue mineral analysis that can provide insight into mineral levels, heavy metal toxicity, and mineral supplementation needs. Eidon Minerals also offers a hair analysis through Bio-Trend Technologies. Since hair takes time to grow out, it's not an exact indicator of current mineral levels. More accurate but expensive blood testing is avaliable. Nutritionally Yours has a vitamin and mineral blood test that can give more accurate current levels, but does not include heavy metal and toxin levels.
