I was wondering if H202 35% food grade would work with Lugol's Iodine. If so, what applications would be appropriate and if not what happens when they are mixed together. I can see where H202 35% might oxidize the iodine and render it useless but then I read this and thought that the H202 could possibly enhance the iodine for a snergy effect or possibly have some sort of restoration value.

Dear Kathleen:

Iodine works even if it is oxidized and become coloress with the hydrogen peroxide. It works better whenever the lugol's is added with the hydrogen peroxide, even if it is 3%. The lugols will become colorless also. It has a synergistic effect against microorganism when two of them are mixed.

Hello Ted; I'm hoping the synergystic effect you mention does not alter the ability of the Iodine and Iodide in Lugol's to do their respective jobs, I.E., alter their composition. Can you expound on this please? Also hoping for a recommendation of daily dosage of 2.2 Lugol's for a 200 lb adult. About to try bladderwrack as well (in small doses) in hopes of fending off Fukushima fallout.

Many thanx & much appreciation!
