Let's branch the discussion then: which solutions for Fukushima related risk work for people without current thyroid issues, and which of those should be avoided by those with current thyroid issues.

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
I've been doing the iodine thearapy sugested by OP for a couple of years now,and yes it does make a difference in how you feel.the only caveat is that where I live, to buy iodine,you have to sign for it,and you aren't allowed to buy more than a certain amount.but swabbing it on a bare area of your skin is an effective and cheap way to end many symptoms such as fatigue and general lethargy.
 Quoting: Walter Bishop 1300563


I am a regular blood donor, and they always swab your arm with iodine prior to sticking the need in. They told me that if you have enough iodine in your body, it stays dark on your skin longer, and your skin will absorb it quickly if you are deficient in it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1129509


That's interesting. This time when I put povidone iodine on my neck and some spilled on my hand, it didn't stain.

Guess it's time to put more on then.

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
OP thanks for this thread, it is great! I can also recommend the website stopthethyroidmadness.com, and the book as well.Changed many peoples lives, they have your thyroid answers.And,as far as the absorption test, I'm unconvinced that is the way to test. If you spill a few drops on the marble sink in the bathroom, don't bother to wipe it up, it will be 'absorbed' in a while. Does that mean our bathroom sinks are iodine deficient? So, go by your symptoms pleae. Hahimotos is a whoe different problem, please seek the advice of a natural practitioner!!
 Quoting: ac 1081321


I think I have been to the stopthethyroidmadness.com website - the one run by M.Shoman? There is a lot of good stuff there! I wish I could do the lab tests they offer there, but they are so expensive. I am eventually going to get that book too! Funny about iodine absorbing into the marble sink! I wonder if it could just be that is it disappears because the sink is porous. But even it that were the explanation, you'd think it would leave a stain.

I am so beaten down and disgusted with doctors. I am tired of being shamed by them! Last summer I was very sick for an entire week. Nauseous, upper abdominal pain that would come and go, mild fever, super dizzy, and I had this odd pain at the front lower part of my neck - not my throat, but my neck. It was difficult to swallow, always felt like something was stuck there. Sounds pretty much like thyroid issue doesn't it?

When I got so bad that I was almost passing out, I went to the ER. They did no tests other that H. Pylori! That was negative. To make a long story short, they said I was having an axiety attack! Of course, the explanation for everything. I was NOT the least bit nervous when I went to the ER, I was very calm and relaxed, I was just very ill (hospitals make me feel calm - I suppose because I was once training to be a nurse).

I told them some things I have had going on and made the mistake of telling them I had looked some things up on the internet (on Web MD, medical journals and texts). You know what they said to me? The nurse said "Do you like to read?" "Do you like fiction?" I said "no, I rarely ever read fiction". SO the nurse suggested I read a good FICTION BOOK and proceeded to tell me how relaxing it is just to get lost in a good fiction book. The nerve!

Basically they were implying that I am a hypochondriac. The nurse was trying to explain it to me without saying I was a hypochondriac but he couldn't think of the word he was trying to say. He said "not hypochondriac, but um, uuuh"..... I said "Hypersensitive?" "Yeah! That's the word I was trying to think of!"

GOOD GREIF!!!! Bad sign when I have to pull up old nursing terms I learned in college to help the ER nurse figure out what HE was trying to say! I have seriously been considering a holistic practitioner. Maybe I will go to one if my iodine therapy does not fix my problems. If my hair stops falling out, I will KNOW the iodine is working for me!

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
Bless you for doing this! I have been planning on doing a thread with the exact info but hadn't gotten around to it...and also sending it to several people who I just turned on to the benefits of Iodine. Now I don't have to do it...I can just send them the info you gathered. I haven't read all of it as of yet though...

Did you mention...that it pain reduction and mood elevation.
If not then you might want to search it out and add it.
I think it was Dr. Mark Starr's interview...I'll try to find it if you like. Anyway on the interview he stated that if everyone was Iodine sufficient that there would be no need for pain medication and antidepressants.

I've been supplementing Iodine and researching it for about 6 months now. The info on Iodine is as important if not more so than that of Vitamin D3.

Anywhoo I've posted on it on various threads but hadn't made a major post like you have done on the subject. There is even some recent video interview's with Dr. Brownstein on the subject due to the radiation scare of late. You might want to search my ID for the info. Or go to his website to get all of his recent blog posts on the subject. You have to sign up for his newsletter to have access though.

Lastly have you seen this website. It is great too! Really Great!

Seriously, please people. Do your own research. As a sufferer of hypothyroidism, I have read a lot on this subject. If you have AUTOIMMUNE thyroid issues, iodine can actually make it worse. It causes the immune system to go into overdrive. Please read up on your own and do not count on the SLIDE show presented by OP. This is not a medical forum!

GLPrs: "Iodine is essential for brain function and intelligence" (hint, hint) -- hey just joking ;-)

Iodine deficiency is one of the three most common nutritional deficiencies, along with magnesium and vitamin D. (Mercola: [link to articles.mercola.com]

I take an iodine product from www.wellnessresources.com called Iosol Iodine. I would like to recommend Byron Richards' website at [link to www.wellnessresources.com]

He (and Mercola) wrote that too much Potassium Iodide can actually interfere with the ability of the thyroid gland to absorb iodine.

Here follows a quote from part of Byron Richard's report on his product Iosol Iodine:
"What is the dose of Iosol Iodine?
The most commonly used dose of Iosol Iodine is 1 drop of the preparation in a few ounces of water, taken once a day. Each drop has 1.8 mg of iodine or 1200% of the governments recommended daily value.
Many people take 1-5 drops of Iosol Iodine per day, using enough to feel warmer and more energetic.

Caution: We have received numerous reports of people taking 25 mg to 50 mg of potassium iodide-containing supplements each day, typically in the form of Lugols or Iodoral. I do not support the use of this protocol as the form of iodine used is inferior and the chance of congesting the thyroid with insoluble potassium iodide is elevated - a needless risk to take for any person trying to improve their health. I have never had any trouble helping people balance thyroid function on far less iodine intake, especially when synergistic thyroid support nutrition is used."

I prefer to listen to the team of doctors who have been involved in the Iodine Project for about 10 years...Dr's Abraham, Flechas & Brownstein. Their recommendation is 6.50 to 50 mg a day until full body saturation is achieved.

Maybe people will come around on iodine/iodide the way they have on Vitamin D. You don't hear any new research saying the high doses of Vitamin D are a big mistake, not at all. Most likely in a few years people will be more aware of iodine deficiency as a major contributor to disease states and supplements will be more available, as will information.

Someone in a post above said the three most common deficiencies are

Vitamin D
Magnesium
Iodine

They are critical for so many functions but especially for brain function. Magnesium deficiency can produce psychotic states, depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies.

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
Quick and easy way to see if you are iodine deficient, and a fast and easy way to get iodine into your system...

Get some Betadine. Using a cotton ball, q-tip, whatever to paint a 2"X2" spot on our underarm, inner thigh, belly, etc.

It'll absorb into your system and leave a light brown spot. The faster it absorbs, the more iodine your body needed. When it will sit on your skin for several hours without absorbing, wash it off...Your iodine level is fine.


It's HARD to overdose with iodine this way, as the iodine simply won't absorb into your system.

Once your body has the amount of iodine it requires (changes with each person), the betadine will not absorb quickly or at all. Reapply every several days or over several days to maintain your iodine levels.

Yes, there is iodine in iodized salt. Sure, it'll give you a little iodine and for that it is actually quite coolio. BUT, too much salt is bad for your body in general. Get your iodine elsewhere...like kelp/seaweed/etc.

Iodine doesn't stay in the body long, so it's quite difficult to 'over-dose' unless you take a concentrated amount in a very short time( ie; potassium iodide pills). THOSE types of dosages are for VERY SHORT TERM USAGE. Don't take Ki 'just because'.

Your mileage may vary...

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
Wow! I just started learning about iodine (ironically) about a week prior to the Japan EQ due to a suspected thyroid issue. I ran across a website last night that has such unbelievable info about iodine. WHY don't "they" tell us this info??! This should be common knowledge! Instead they push drugs and tell us we have disorders when really we have deficiencies!!!

Check out the site.

[link to docs.google.com]

The info is given in a slide-show type presentation and is very easy to read. You will be shocked and PO'd! I was anyhow. After reading this info, I realized that THEY started taking away the potassium iodide / potassium iodine LONG before 3-3-11 !!!

Iodine was once a common ingredient in many foods such as bread. In the 1980's, iodine was removed from our breads and REPLACED with Bromine. Bromine worsens iodine-deficiency problems because it INHIBITS absorption of iodine in the body! It is also a known CARCINOGEN.

Iodine is a body detoxifier! It has been proven to detoxify the body by flushing the following harmful substances out of the body:

– Bromine
– Fluoride
– Chlorine
– Mercury
– Lead
– Aluminum
– Cadmium

Iodine deficiency is linked to the following:

– Thyroid disease
– Prostate cancer
– Breast cancer
– Ovarian cancer
– Endometrial cancer
– Ovarian cysts
– Fibrocystic Breast Disease
- Fibromyalgia (strong evidence supports fibromyalgia is simply iodine deficiency)

Iodine is cancer's ENEMY! “Iodine is not toxic to normal cells but IS toxic to cancer cells!”

In addition to causing cancer, an iodine deficiency will cause existing cancer to be more aggressive. Iodine is responsible for CONTROLLED cell death - a normal, necessary function of out bodies. Iodine plays a HUGE role in keeping cells in check so they don't grow out of control and overtake the body. Cancer cells are cells that keep growing and don't die! (thus lumps/tumors)

Iodine deficiency seems like a logical explanation for cancer!

Coincidentally, Japanese women have lower rates of breast, endometrial and ovarian cancers as well as fibrocystic breast disease. Go figure! Their diets are loaded with iodine from fish and seaweed!

WHY ISN’T IODINE PART OF THE STANDARD TREATMENT FOR CANCER?

Iodine supplementation improves / cures the following:

- Thinning hair / hair loss
– Fatigue / tiredness
– Feeling cold
– Brain fog / memory problems
- Muscle pain
- Basically all symptoms of hypothyroidism!

Unbelievable! Please read the site as there is so much more than what I've shared here. I am buying some Iodoral ASAP - not just for protection against radiation, but for everything explained at that site!

Actually a small amount of arsenic is a cancer preventative. I can't remember which country it was, but they ate the pit of a peach unlike most Americans. Scientists decided to do some research there because the country had a very low rate of cancer. Turns out everyone eating the pits were not getting cancer later in life!

1st lets take salt loading:

Salt Loading (sea salt) helps the body get rid of Bromide.

Bromide is in everything today (carpets, computer, some drinks, you name it)...they even took Iodine out of bread and put in Bromide (I think it is thickener or softener or something) Anyway...Bromide like Iodine is Halogen. When there is not enough Iodine in the body Bromide will sit on the receptor sites where the Iodine should be.

When you salt load it helps the body get rid of Bromide.. (Again, bromide has to be removed for Iodine to take up residence) Bromide will attach itself to the chloride in the sea salt and then make its way to the kidney for removal.

Bromide is a nasty detox...so salt loading makes detoxing bromide much less difficult. Also giving the body days off helps with the bromide detox as well.

This one gets more complicated in that when I started searching there is a lot to read and take in...but the short of it is that the doctors at the Iodine Project number one thinks that Iodine should be used in an overall wellness program and two these nutrients either support the thyroid or support your body to detox and heal.

Selenium
Vit C
Magnesium
B Vitamins
