I'm Japanese and have been eating seaweed and other iodine rich food for years on a daily basis (practically since I was born)...

I have thinning hair and I still suffer from fatigue, feeling cold, brain fog, and muscle pain. Iodine is definitely not some miracle...it hasn't been for me...

Maybe you're suffering from some type of exposure like natural gas from some source, or formaldehyde. Perhaps you might check where you're water is coming from, that sort of thing. If you have nat gas drilling going on near your property or water table I can tell you people go on like this a few years without realizing what is happening why their health is failing.
Try to estimate when your symptoms gradually began..was it after a move to a new type home built with 'newer' construction materials?

Best of luck and warmest regards to you. Please find your problem and feel better.(((hugs)))hf

Oh good! Any chance you are able to break down for us Iodine doses for radiation protection vs supplemental.
ie., radiation protection I know is K1 32.2mg every 3 days.

How would you use 250mcg Iodine from Kelp drops (how many drops and how often) for radiation protection.
HOw much would you use 250mcg Iodine drops for ordinary supplementation (how many and how often)?
I agree this can be a very beneficial thing, but it did cross my mind almost immediately that your thyroid might give you problems later if you run out of drops and supplies not available.
There has to be some middle ground here I'm sure you'll agree with that.

Worldwide reports of iodine overdoses: WHO

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says it has received reports of people being admitted to poison centres around the world after taking iodine tablets.
Fears about harmful levels of radiation coming out of the damaged nuclear power plant in Fukishima has seen panic buying of iodine pills in many countries.
Iodine is thought to protect the body's thyroid and glandular system from radiation.
The French government has dispensed half a million tablets to its Pacific territories as a precautionary measure.
But WHO Western Pacific environmental officer, Steven Iddings, says there are already reports of overdoses in countries close to Japan.
"These would be from maybe frightened people who have self-medicated without the advice of a doctor," he said.
"This treatment is really meant for people who are close up, perhaps workers who are associated with the response in Japan."

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!

This is a report on the plutonium and uranium detected in addition to the Iodine levels which are increasing. In order to gather the most thorough evidence to date, we poured through countless news stories from Japan and the World, as well as official press releases from TEPCO, NRC documents, Areva status documents, and a JAIF report in order to determine the truth at Fukushima. We had assumed that since the IAEA is an international organization, it would have the most honest report, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. What you’re reading took numerous hours of research over many days to discover the theoretical timeline of Plutonium radioactive isotope leakage at the Fukushima Daiichi facility.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1332537


I'm not fully understanding your question but I'll give it a try...

When you say protective doses are you referring to the 130 mg pills that they give to those within a radioactive area. Not sure how the "tptb" came up with that dosage but my own belief is that this was a short term dosage for those in an area that would be hit "once" (so to speak) with radiation and that over days the radiation dissipates. I could be wrong about that.

Repercussions on the thyroid hormones?

Well again I'll give it a try...

Our bodies have Iodine receptors sites on EVERY CELL in our bodies. However, Bromide, Fluoride, Chlorine are Halogens just like Iodine...and each one of the 1st three can displace Iodine and sit on the Iodine receptors site. Only until enough Iodine is taken long term to "wash" these others out of the body does Iodine then take it's rightful spot...and since we are constantly ingesting or obtaining these other halogens we have to continue to take Iodine.

See link to understand displacement of Iodine
[link to curezone.com]

Powerful substance?

Again let me give it a go....

Powerful yes in that it is so beneficial to the body! Please take the time to look at the slide presentation and click on all the links and read everything you can. You will not be disappointed.

The only "negative" thing if you want to call it that about Iodine is that it causes a detox reaction of some really nasty substances...and when folks go through detox they think "oh Iodine must be bad" instead of thinking "I'm getting some really nasty stuff out of my body". You could look at it as a "herxheimer" effect ... that when you body is healing you may fell worse at times instead of better...it has been a jigsaw effect for me...but well worth it...and you can help yourself with the detox by salt loading, taking companion nutrients and pulse dosing (taking days off of Iodine)

The longer I take Iodine, the better I feel! Going on 6 months for me now.

And as a side note for those worried about taking to much Potassium IoDIDE

The Nobel laureate Dr. Albert Szent Györgi (1893—1986), the physician who discovered vitamin C, writes: "When I was a medical student, iodine in the form of KI was the universal medicine. Nobody knew what it did, but it did something and did something good. We students used to sum up the situation in this little rhyme:

If ye don't know where, what, and why
Prescribe ye then K and I"

The standard dose of potassium iodide given was 1 gram, which contains 770 mg of iodine.

Dr Gyorgi took a gram a day and lived til 93.

But again it is important to note that our bodies need both Iodine and IoDIDE

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...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1326761





precisely, this is what i do

oddly enough i started taking it two days after the initial eq on 3-11 and it took hours to absorb. I just ordered more and one of the bottles broke and I thought, "O well, my fingers will be orange for a while, LOL!"
They were not, it was gone in under an hour and today I upped it to three drops and again it was gone in abour 40 mins. Perhaps the radiation levels are higher than we think as this above poster is correct. If your skin does not absorb it, you don't need it. Well, my skin is now absorbing it at a tremendous pace.

Just recently I have noticed a strong feeling of well-being and an absence of so-called "brain fog". My thinking seems more clear and my focus is better. I have less lethargy and fatigue.

It could be a lot of different things but I have been taking the potassium iodide 32.5 mg tablets that I had kicking around here, I haven't taken them every day or even for very long, but more than I have in the past and I wasn't taking any before for a long time now.

It's possible that I really needed it and that I can feel it kicking in. I feel noticeably good. However it could be that unemployment is agreeing with me despite being beyond broke and looking for a job. Maybe just getting out from under the fluorescent lights and away from the dirty work environment is giving me a lift. Either way I feel pretty damn good.

^that's interesting that you mentioned sleep, I have been needing less sleep lately too, been waking up in the middle of the night every night & not wanting to go back to sleep, and haven't been sleeping late in the morning. A couple of years ago I was having a real problem with wanting to sleep like 12 hours every night and then being groggy all day. I'm sure it was menopause related and I didn't want to get too concerned about it. But I am glad things are changing a little. Wonder if it's the iodine? It could be.

About the Iodine Patch Test!

[link to www.iodine4health.com]

Interview of Dr David Derry by Mary Shomon


"The "test" of putting iodine on the skin to watch how fast it disappears is not an indicator of anything. The iodine disappearance rate is unrelated to thyroid disease or even iodine content of the body.(1-2) Meticulous research by Nyiri and Jannitti in 1932 showed clearly when iodine is applied to the skin in almost any form, 50% evaporates into the air within 2 hours and between 75 and 80 percent evaporates into the air within 24 hours. (1) A total of 88 percent evaporates within 3 days and it is at this point that the evaporation stops. The remaining 12 percent that is absorbed into the skin has several fates. Only 1-4% of the total iodine applied to the skin is absorbed into the blood stream within the first few hours. The rest of the iodine within the skin (8-11%) is slowly released from the skin into the blood stream.

"However Nyiri and Jannitti's findings that “The percentage of iodine penetration through the skin is the same, irrespective of whether the cells have a high or low vitality, or are dead, and irrespective of the direction of penetration" have important implications for iodine functions in the body, skin, pregnancy and fetus and also for the therapeutic use of topical and oral iodine. Iodine would be the only compound of significance during early pregnancy which can pass rapidly through all tissues of the fetus without the aid of any blood vessel or lymphatic transport. It could be that not only does iodine control natural cell death (apoptosis) (5) in the fetus but may also influences stem cell development.

"Nyiri and Jannetti also mentioned iodine applied on the skin can be used to shrink swelling of the thyroid gland (goiters). So even small amounts of iodine absorbed through the skin can have good effects on body organs. From my own clinical experience, repeated application of iodine (Lugol’s) to the skin appears to cause regeneration of the skin from the bottom up (Quiescent, stable or stem cell) (3) eventually sloughing the old version of the skin off like a snake molting. If there was a pre-cancerous lesion on the old skin, it is replaced with new skin minus the lesion. There does not seem to be any skin lesions which are not helped or cured by this procedure. In some cases I found clinically obvious low thyroid conditions also needed to be treated to be more effective. Minor lacerations and healing of surgical wounds respond well. If skin regeneration is from the bottom, then there is little or no scar formation.

"My parents’ generation tended to put tincture of iodine onto a fresh wound to prevent infection. This turns out to be helpful but not the best way to use it. Besides it stung badly when applied. It is much more effective (and doesn't hurt) to apply iodine repeatedly after a scab has been formed. The iodine put onto the scab helps to organize total repair of the tissue. It is implied a similar approach could be taken to burns of all depths but at the same time the physiology of burns suggest there is an acute lack of thyroid hormone. (3)

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
Quote from Dr. Abraham of the "Iodine Project"

Of all the elements known so far to be essential for human health, iodine is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, iodine is the safest of all the essential trace elements, being the only one that can be administered safely for long periods of time to large numbers of patients in daily amounts as high as 100,000 times the RDA. However, this safety record only applies to inorganic, nonradioactive forms of iodine. Some organic iodine containing drugs are extremely toxic and prescribed by physicians. The severe side effects of these drugs are blamed on inorganic iodine although studies have clearly demonstrated that it is the whole molecule that is toxic, not the iodine released from it.”

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!

An important snippet from the article:

Iodine is critical to human health. It forms the basis of thyroid hormones and plays many other roles in human biochemistry. While the thyroid gland contains the body’s highest concentration of iodine, the salivary glands, brain, cerebrospinal fluid, gastric mucosea, breasts, ovaries and a part of the eye also concentrate iodine. In the brain, iodine is found in the choroid plexus, the area on the ventricles of the brain where cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced, and in the substantia nigra, an area associated with Parkinson’s disease.
