I was finally able to watch it! good video, he does sound he studied Iodine well and enough. I think @FunkOdyssey should watch it
It does sound like he’s studied idoine quite a bit. What’s more important to me is the anecdotal experiences he’s seen treating his patients with idoine. I value what happens in the real world a lot more than any study. But obv both are very important to consider

if you liked him, look into Dr David Browstein work. He and Dr Abhrahim are the pioneers on Iodine. I think anyone else base their clinical work with Iodine mainly on Dr B research and work.

I’m familiar with RestartMed and Westin’s work, though I hadn’t read that article on iodine before by him, and just got done reading the Dr Brownstein book on Iodine.

Although the detox hypothesis might in theory be okay, personally, I do feel that at least in my case, it probably is more related to something closer to iodine poisoning than a detox. Mainly because I’ve had iron poisoning before from excessive supplementation, and there were similar aspects to it on the negative side of things. If it is more related to that, it’s probably that your body needs to adjust to peeing out any excess iodine, and until it does, you’re pushing it out anywhere you can. I have issues with retaining water, so that probably affects my ability to filter anything out.

Either way, there was a lot to like about it, including hair growth which is a tough one for me. I took a break from it, and bought a much lower dose version of it (50mcg per drop) so I can start off a lot lower and see how I do with that and what benefits it might give me. I’ll likely start off with 150mcg per day, which is about the RDA.

I do think most people probably are fine with Lugol’s, but would probably recommend starting their dose closer to how Westin does it, which is taking it infrequently. I can’t recall now the amount he uses, but I think he doses once a week, which for some people might be closer to starting off with a drop a week if you’re not going to water it down like Gianluca did. I don’t have the patience to water it down since it stains easily so if I did try Lugol’s again, which I’m sure I will, I’d probably start off with infrequent dosing, which for a lot of people probably would prevent a detox or poisoning phase or whatever’s going on with it if they are seemingly prone to it like me.

I’d still rate Lugol’s as very promising for me. Only took a few days off of it to mostly be back to normal. I’m not 100% but I’m probably 80%. Probably better for most people to start off with a drop a week or every few days first if they want to avoid whatever happens when you start.

Another way to see if someone is in Iodine overload, is testing Iodine serum after 24H from last ingestion. Iodine should be excreted by the kidney within 24h.

At the beginning when I was using 2.5mg, after 24h my serum came back low.

Now that I remember, I did start very low with Iodine, from 150mcg of Potassium Iodide, and doubling it every month till Lugols dosages.

Tried 150mcg but then decided to see how conservative I can be with it and have been doing 50mcg of the iodine + iodide mix daily. It’s very subtle but even with that I can see some benefits, like saliva and sense of taste and smell. Feels more manageable. Before my sense of taste and smell were so heightened or maybe just like a normal person’s that it affected my ability to eat some things. Even the smell of the bowl for a rice cooker was extreme on a high iodine dose, and generally anything metal had an added sensory experience to it that was unpleasant. I’ll go up over time, but at least for me, I think starting off more conservatively is the way to go.
