After finding out that my worsening sebaceous cysts are probably caused by an Iodine deficiency I have began to supplement.
I am currently putting kelp granules (Laminaria Digitata) onto all my food, as well as taking a 250mcg Potasium Iodine tablet daily.
Are the kelp granules alone enough because I would prefer not to have to take pills.
I heard a quarter teaspoon of kelp granules has 250mcg of iodine but this sounds a bit suspect.
In the below thread someone suggested that the Perfect Health Diet site advises not to take kelp granules due to toxins. Is this true?

Not sure about toxins in the kelp granules, but i'd make sure to supplement with a yeast based form of selenium for at least a few weeks before hand(250mcg). As supplementing with potassium idiode has caused quite a few people some issues, and selenium has a protective affect. I wouldn't be supplementing with any more than 1gram btw and if i did supplement i'd try potassium iodide and see if you feel any hypothyroid/hyper symptoms.
