Abstract/Notes Long known for its effectiveness in treating goiter, supplemental iodine has been used in American medicine for years. In an effort to reduce goiter it was added to our salt supply in the early 1900s. In 1829, Jean Lugol, a French physician, became interested in iodine because it showed great promise in treating infections. He began using a solution termed "Lugols iodine" that was a mixture of 5% iodine and 10% potassium iodide in water. He began treating many different infections with his solution and had great success. Two drops per day was the recommended dose and was readily available at apothecaries and was routinely prescribed for many different conditions.
