FYI-

Nebulizing Magnesium and other Medicinals

http://magnesiumforlife.com/transdermal-magnesium/nebulizing-magnesium-and-other-medicinals/

excerpt-


Nebulized Iodine

In some countries nebulizers are given to people by prescription only because they give a person direct access to the bloodstream and this is an indication that this is serious medicine we are dealing with, so caution is advised. With nebulizers we in part get the same effect as with injections, medications quickly diffuse directly into the blood stream. Thus a nebulizer holds the capacity to save lives.

When it comes to using iodine in a nebulizer special caution is needed. The choice of iodine is important because putting in potassium, which is found in Lugols, is dangerous. Potassium chloride, another salt of potassium, is used for lethal injection so I recommend only Nascent Iodine.

Nebulization with iodine offers an extremely strong therapy which can clear the lungs quite rapidly of infections. Therapeutic concentrations can be increased for desired effect but it is recommended that dosages start at the low end unless there is an emergency situation.

I would start my first iodine treatment with a weak solution, 3 5 drops and slowly increase to ten drops or more closely monitoring the experience. As long as the patient displays no discomfort or side effects concentration can be increased strongly especially when in a life threatening situation. One should expect much quicker and more dramatic results with iodine then with H2O2.

At a seminar, Dr. K. specifically mentioned using TriQuench, and I believe he mentioned it was important to use this rather than Lugol's.

TriQuench (Scientific Botanicals brand) label says it contains potassium iodide, distilled water, and saffron extract.

Looking on the web, it appears Lugol's contains distilled water, potassium iodine, and iodine crystal. Other language on wiki says the pure iodine can be toxic.

So TriQuench may be better. But none of this addresses the potassium concern. Strange to hear potassium is dangerous, but I know the FDA limits sale to 99mg doses, you will see this in some supplements, none with 100mg or more per serving. There is no free potassium in TriQuench, nor any potassium chloride. Perhaps the concern is recombination with chloride?

By the way, Dr. K. only recommended 1-2 drops mixed with distilled water, for adults, as a general rule, with more only used for specific cases and only then for a limited period of time.

Hmmm...

Here is a discussion that might be of some interest, including the same reference you had (you might have seen it already, but just in case you had not).

I do it and it helps. I think part of me getting rid of lung worm.

My Doc gave me a script for SSKI Iodine. I was doing 2 drops in a tsp of water now doing 1 drop.

Dr K had recommended this for Bart, babs and lung worm.

Do not use Lugals

FWIW, if it was SSKI, then it has potassium in it. That's what the K stands for in the SSKI.

Thanks. I think I would try the Nascent Iodine... I'm still giving it some thought. Any other suggestions.

I had CFS many years ago so it's really possible I have lungworm. Someone was saying that you can get a return of old ymptoms on ivermectin - that seems to be happening to me now.

So, nebulized iodine may help... I'm feeling a bit spacey & it's hard to focus today. I'll dowse it & see when I'm feeling "brighter".

PS - the other advantage with the nebulizer is that you can use it for glutathione, too.

(this is a very informative article...)

http://magnesiumforlife.com/transdermal-magnesium/nebulizing-magnesium-and-other-medicinals/

--

Nebulized Glutathione

Glutathione has many profound roles in the body. One role is to enable the liver to remove toxins, medications and other substances from the body. Without it, these substances cannot be removed properly. One puts a special small daily amount of glutathione in a nebulizer, which will facilitate toxin removal and possibly tissue repair. The glutathione level of the epithelial lining fluid is decreased in severe inflammatory lung diseases including in cases with Cystic fibrosis.

Glutathione in the epithelial lining fluid (ELF) of the lower respiratory tract is thought to be the first line of defense against oxidative stress. Inhalation (nebulized or aerosolized) is the only known method that increases GSHs levels in the ELF.[10]

Dr. Michelle Alpert, D.O says, Because oral glutathione is not well absorbed, I have also begun to experiment with nebulized glutathione, which patients can take at home between detox drips. According to a study in Alternative Medicine Review in 2000, nebulized glutathione has had remarkable success in emphysema and other lung disorders such as asthma and bronchitis. It appears that inhalation may have a systemic effect. Some patients are having even greater success with this combination.[11]

In a case of a 95-year-old man with an acute respiratory crisis secondary to emphysema and apparent bronchial infection treatment with nebulized glutathione led to a rapid resolution of the crisis, as well as a marked improvement in the chronic course of the disease. This treatment has been used since for a number of patients with emphysema. The safety and bioavailability of this method of delivery have been established in human studies.[12]

Different people taking Nebulized Glutathione often have very different reactions. One person may tolerate Nebulized Glutathione well but not get the desired effect, another may have side effects or adverse reactions that make Nebulized Glutathione intolerable, and yet another may get the desired effect with no side effects.[13]

I ordered the nebulizer today. I was looking for the appropriate iodine. I think the nascent iodine is the one to use. I have to study it a bit more. I want to compare what Dr. K recommends to the other brands.

This one seems good but I'm going to look into it a little more-

I've been nebulizing ~ 10 drops nascent iodine in distilled water nearly daily for about 7 months now, and it has really made a difference - no more hoarseness, no breathing difficulties when running. Not sure how long to continue doing it, though, but it sure seems to help!

Thanks! I ordered the nebulizer last week. I was just studying the different kinds of iodine. I think I'm going to go with the Nascent Iodine.

re - would nebulizing the glutathione be expen$ive

I don't think so. The capsules are not that expensive. It just that we don't absorb the glutathione orally - so it makes alot of sense to nebulize it.

I'd have to study it to see how to prepare the solution. I may have posted it.

Here's the reference - "One puts a special small daily amount of glutathione in a nebulizer, which will facilitate toxin removal and possibly tissue repair."

I'd have to research it to find which one people are using for this. Once you get over the learning curve - it's probably pretty easy to do. It probably lasts a whle so it can't be that expensive.

I am continuing, 2 drops/day of TriQuench (equates to about 38 mg of iodine) in the AM before breakfast. My pendulum says it's very good for me. I really haven't noticed anything, just been a few days now, I am sort of used to not seeing anything immediately startling out of various treatments.

ps-


Special Note: Some research has found that inhaling glutathione in mildly asthsmatic people may cause bronchospasm due to sulfite formation. The connection to good glutathione levels is crucial in asthsma, but needs to be weighed against the risk of bronchospasm when inhaled. Caution must be used at all times and glutathione levels may be more safely raised in asthsmatic people by oral or other means. Proper medical supervision is advised at all times when athsma is a risk so as not to cause undue stress on this very sensitive bronchial tissue.

Thanks Michael-

re: sort of used to not seeing anything immediately startling out of various treatments.

Yes, you have to give it time to work. It depends... If I don't see any results over time - I usually stop - especially if it's something expensive.

I can't really tell with the simplified methylation protocol. I take it when it's comes up a "yes" when dowsing it. I have most of the supplements here but i don't know if I will replace them when they run out.

I got a "yes" for the nascent iodine & the glutathione with the nebulizer. i haven't ordered them yet. We'll see how it goes. It's good to have them on hand in any case - for colds, flu, etc.
