Iodine and Sleep
Has anyone taken Lugol's solution for insomnia? I was troubled by insomnia for 30 years. I had been living abroad in a third-world country where there was very little fish and no shellfish whatsoever. I was brought up on a diet abundant in fish and shellfish. When I developed my sleep problem I did not associate it with a lack of iodine. I discovered the problem accidentally when we returned to the US and I indulged in my craving for clams. My sleep improved minimally and I finally realized what my problem was. Lack of iodine. I started taking Atomidine and things improved. I finally overcame my problem completely when I tried a patch of iodine on my thigh to judge my need. The patch disappeared well before 24 hours which told me that the dose I was taking was inadequate. I repeated the patch and was overcome with sleepiness. The problem was that the Atomidine was a very weak solution of iodine, so I switched to using the patch entirely. I sleep like a baby. By the way I am hypothyroid.
