Potassium iodide is available pharmaceutically, as supplements for hyperthyroidism, or for those who don’t get enough iodine in their diet. It’s also used to prevent damage to the thyroid gland when radiation is absorbed by the body, either as part of medical treatment, or an environmental release of radiation.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t treat Morgellons, a self-diagnosed skin condition which has been classified as delusional parasitosis by modern medicine. Those who claim to suffer from it pick and scratch their skin compulsively, leading fibers from their own clothing to be embedded in their skin, which they then use as proof that they’ve got Morgellons. Spurned by the medical establishment due to the fact that their condition isn’t medically treatable, they are then led by online quacks to buy tiny $40 packages of salt to “cure” their Morgellons.
Also, the manufacturer claims “There’s nothing in it for Big Pharma,” which, to me, makes them Little Pharma.
