Hi all,
I tried to get iodine (for testing food on the NSD) from my pharmacist. They have to order it and wanted to know what type I wanted. I didn't know. Can someone suggest a type and/or brand?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello, Faye:

I use a 1% solution called "Atomidine" or "Atomic Iodine," available from the Baar's or Heritage (Edgar Cayce products). In a pinch I can dilute a 7% tincture considerably--doesn't have to be exact but 1-3% works best.

HEALTH,
John

Hi John,
Thank you very much for the info. I went across town to a large chain store and showed your reply to the pharmacist. They understood and had some in stock. It is their store brand so when I was home I tested dozens of foods. Known starchy things turned dark as expected.
Health to you.
