The Lugols Skin Testing & Supplementation Method

Lugols Solution can be used to determine whether someone has an iodine deficiency. It is also a simple way to supplement iodine through the skin. This can be done by painting iodine on different parts of the body such as the arms, legs or torso. The size of the patch should be the same as the size of the patients palm. Simply painting lugols on the skin helps to identify whether you need it or not and this is measured by how well it absorbs.Applying the lugols is easy but can be messy if spilt on clothing and bench surfaces that can become easily stained. Our lugols solution is contained in dark glass amber bottles with quality pipette lids for easy application.Simply release some of the lugols solution onto the skin and disperse it evenly.  It should take a minute or two to dry before it is safe not to stain any clothing. Children enjoy smiley faces and pictures painted on their skin. It is suggested to apply lugols after your shower so that the solution has a chance to absorb into the skin.The next step is to observe the time it takes to absorb the lugols solution, this can take up to 24 hours to absorb, however it will be different for different people depending on their iodine levels. If the yellowish stain disappears within 24 hours, it means your body is lacking crucial iodine and has soaked it all up. In this case, you need to continue painting the iodine every day until it stops absorbing and your body will tell you how much it needs. If the yellow stain is still strong after 24 hours, this is an indication that you have good iodine levels. However if the lugols stain is gone within 3 – 4 hours and in some cases even 8 hours, this would indicate a deficiency that may also requires oral supplementation of iodine.Instructional Video for Lugols Skin Application
