iodine patch test

My BioSet practitioner told me that I could get a sense of how deficient I might be in iodine by seeing how long it took for the Lugol's solution that I paint on my skin to absorb. I painted some on  (on my lower abodomen right over those fibroids!) before dashing to a business dinner tonight, and about 2 1/2 hours later when I went to the restroom it was gone.

This means I needed iodine.  Mind you that I have had my thryoid tests done more than once and nothing amiss was detected.  Even if you thyroid test is coming out normal, you may still need iodine.

Here is a nicely written blog post on the topic of how to do this kind of iodine patch test.
