Iodine insufficiency leads to Thyroid problems, breast, ovarian and cancer generally. One of the toxic substances that depletes already low iodine levels is fluoride in the water, yes you heard right, fluoride is a toxic bi-product of the mining industry, WHO lists it as one of the 5 most toxic substances on the planet.
Iodine (Lugol’s) is critical to protect against radioactive iodine released since the Japanese tsunami, nuclear fall out.
Dr. Jorge D. Flechas, MD is an authority on the subject, which apparently a lot of doctors are not up to speed with: httpv://www.youtube.com/embed/EoMfg76gAUo
Dr Brownstein, another authority on the subject, has recommended Iodine to more than 5000 patients, and recorded results. 19 out of 20 people in the US are Iodine deficient, and nearly 500 recorded toxic levels of Bromine, which attaches to Iodine sites in the body, so that Iodine cannot be absorbed.
Bromine is used to bleach white flour, and in many other applications.
80% trans-dermal Iodine evaporates.
The longer sea vegetables are out of the sea water, the more Iodine will be leached.
According to my colleague, Margaret Main, a registered Nurse, ‘from my personal experience, I found Bromine the cause of Iodine deficiency when I sent a 24 hour Iodine-loading urine test sample to the US. NB: Spot Iodine urine tests are accurate, ONLY if the patient has NOT been taking Iodine supplements.
High levels of Bromine increase the requirement for Iodine.
50 – 80% Iodine deficient people are undiagnozed.
Autoimmune thyroid disorders start with an Iodine deficient state, this includes people with Hashimoto’s and Grave’s Disease.
Cancer patients may have high levels of Bromine. This fact is relatively unknown.
We can’t make thyroid hormone without Iodine.
White blood cells can’t function without Iodine.
If Iodine deficient people are exposed to radioactive Iodine, redioactive Iodine will be taken up.
Sources of sea vegetables, Ashwaganda, Spirulina, Chlorella may be contaminated. There are a lot of Chlorella farms in Japan.
Product purity tests must be done by an independant laboratory.
Dr David Brownstein’s DVD, “Iodine, why you need it, why you can’t live without it”. This DVD was made many years ago, after Dr Brownstein was disatisfied with conventional medicine, and used Iodine to treat
his father’s heart condition, with excellent results. It was one of Dr Brownstein’s patients who inspired him to read a book on
nutrition, that led him to research Iodine.
Don’t take my word for it, do your own research, Google the topic, about right kind of iodine, Lugol’s appears to be the most absorbed type of iodine.
Safeguard your health, educate yourself with right information from independent sources, not those that have a vested interest to ‘sell’ you
their ‘pills’, especially the synthetic kind.
Yours in great health
