Charla Shambart admins the Iodine Support Group on Facebook. I’ve recently joined and, as with many other healthcare Facebook groups, there’s loads of great information there. Here’s the welcome message:
“Welcome to IODINE SUPPORT GROUP. Please listen to these 2 lectures by Dr. Jorge Flechas and study the attached pdf ‘Iodine: Essential Nutrient for Life’. Also attached is a quick overview of the Lugol’s Iodine Protocol.

Iodine supplementations should be prescribed only if indicated by the results of iodine testing. Iodine testing kits may be ordered from my office (828-694-1144) by individuals with a physician’s order or by health care professionals. If ordered by an individual, test results will be returned to the ordering physician; if ordered by a health care provider, test results will be returned to the health care provider. A cost of $88 per kit covers the cost of the load testing kit, testing services, and return postage (charges for additional postage will apply if mailed to location outside the U.S.). A urine iodine spot test was developed by the World Health Organization and looks for iodine sufficiency to prevent goiter. This spot and load test is now offered through our office for $125 plus $2.50 for the Iodoral tablets. Read more ›

Yet, research at Washington University School of Medicine … has shown that silver is bactericidal to nearly 650 different disease-causing organisms, and that silver–resistant bacteria strains do not develop.” —Science Digest Read more ›
