Thank you so much for your reply, cato!
In fact, I've recently read that ovaries are second to the thyroid gland in their need of iodine. Later, I was wondering if Lugol's could be applied over the cyst, in the ovary area. I searched for some info a couple of days ago, but failed to find anything about its topical use in case of cysts. And now your reply comes as an answer to my wondering!
You say I should paint it over the uterus area. Why not over the cyst area? I know where my cyst is and I can even touch it under the skin. So maybe I could apply Lugol's directly there. But I still need to find out details, the how to. I thank you that you mentioned doctors' names.
Dear cato, do you know if there's much difference between taking Lugol's or kelp? I have had several cysts in both breasts; diagnosed as fibrocystic mastopathy. I started taking kelp (600mcg daily), and in 4 months I had another ultrasound, which showed only 1 cyst in each breast; and the largest one had gone from 1,8cm to 0,5cm.
Concerning my ovarian cyst, it seems that 600mcg kelp daily, which I've been taking for 7 months now, hasn't changed anything. So I thought maybe only "watery" cysts respond to iodine; but now that you've mentioned fibroids and endometriosis, I'm encouraged. Well, they can't be 100% sure by ultrasound if my cyst is indeed endometrial; but it looks very much like one. And it's "stuck" there since June 2008. Maybe I should increase my kelp dosage. I still need to find out if Lugol's is freely available in my country, though I don't think it's anything hard to be made at pharmacies.
Regading antioxidants, I wonder if my vitamin E is making the iodine from kelp oxidize... Or doesn't it matter in which form the iodine is? Do you think kelp is also to be taken at least one hour apart from antioxidants?
Thanks again for giving valuable information. By the way, may I ask you if you have personally used Lugol's to cure any of the above mentioned conditions? Or do you know anyone who has used Lugo's efficiently?
Sorry for so many questions
I don't want to undergo surgery at all, so I need to know as much as I can
