I took iodine and iodide and after a week I got headaches. I had to stop taking them.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 941185



The headache's aren't actually caused by Iodine or Iodide but the caused by the release of Bromide. Bromide is a nasty detox and almost always causes a headache ... mostly frontal headache...salt loading, and pulse dosing (taking days off of taking Iodine to give your body a rest) will help.

Bromide (causes cancer) is in everything and you need to get it out of the body...the only way you can is by taking Iodine/Iodide.

Again, the headaches are cause by the release of BROMIDE...not from taking Iodine.

I'll be staying away from bread.

Bromides are a common endocrine disruptor. It is found in commercial bread products and some flours as potassium bromate. In the 1960's it replaced postassium iodate as a dough conditioner. I personally wrote one of the major bread producers and was told that it was replaced because it worked better. There seems to be no documented historical information regarding this change however.

Because bromide is also a halide it competes for the same receptors that are used in the thyroid gland (among other places) to capture iodine. This will inhibit thyroid hormone production resulting in a low thyroid state. Unfortunately it appears that the only method for removal of this halide from these receptors is in supplying iodine in forms such as Lugol's liquid or Iodoral. Iodine must be supplmented in dosages greater than the normal recommended dosages (15mcg). Many on my Iodine group need to supplment with dosages of 50 mgs or higher to obtain possitive results.

Where can I find bromide?

1. Methyl Bromide- a pesticide used mainly on strawberries, found predominanty in the Californa areas..

2. Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)- added to citrus drinks to help *suspend* the flavoring in the liquid. It is what gives the liquid that murky color. Also found in some asthma inhalers and prescription drugs. As well as fabrics, mattresses, carpeting as a fire retardant.

3.Potassium Bromate- dough conditioner found in commercial bakery products and some flours.

The European Union has banned the use of some PBDE (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers) compounds. It is hoped that the United States will follow but it is not in the "works" at this point.

Thyroid Nutrients

Vitamin A- Individuals with low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) have a reduced ability to convert beta-carotene into vitamin A.
Recommended amount: 25,000 IU

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)- Riboflavin is needed for the production of corticosteroids, erythropoesis gluconeogenesis, and thyroid enzyme regulation. Assists with ATP production increasing energy along with organification of Iodine.
Recommended amount: 100 mgs 2x / day

Vitamin B3 (Inositol Hexanicotinate)- is needed to increase ATP functionality to help with energy and organification of iodine.
Recommended amount: 500 mgs 2x / day

Vitamin C- Assists in the healthy function of the NIS (sodium iodine symporters) which allows the cells to pull iodine into them.
Recommended amount: 2,000 - 5,000 mgs

Iodine- Critical building block. Iodine is organified to thyroglobulin to create thyroid hormones (T4 - 4 iodine molecules & T3 - 3 Iodine molecules).
Recommended amount: 6 - 50 mgs

L-Tyrosine - This is an amino acid that is used by the thyroid gland. It works with iodine to activate T3 and T4. L-tyrosine attaches itself to iodine atoms to form the active thyroid hormone. Supplementation with L-tyrosine can assist in better sleep and lowered stress. It also aids in the function of the adrenal and pituitary glands.
Recommended amount: 500 mgs

Magnesium- Assists in the regulation of thyroid function. Is a good regulator of muscle relaxation. Activates enzymes in the body.
Recommended amount: 400-500 mgs - Note: A new form of transdermal Magnesium is now available called Ancient Minerals. It can be applied to the skin thus avoiding bowel intolerance and gut absorption issues. Magnesium Oil can be purchased HERE

Selenium- Assists in the production two enzymes: glutathione peroxidase (reacts with H2O2to reduce H to H2O) and iodothyroinine deiodinase (controls the removal of an iodine molecule to convert from T4 to T3, T3 to T2 and T2 to T1).
Recommended amount: 200 - 400 mcg

Zinc- Assists in the conversion of T4 thyroid hormone to the more active T3 form of thyroid hormone. A simple test with liquid zinc can be done to test for deficiency. If you can taste the zinc then you are not deficient. If you taste nothing then you need to supplement.
Recommended amount: 50 mgs (should be combined with 2 mgs
Copper as they are antagonists and zinc will lower copper levels)

** These recommendations are only general guidelines of nutrients. You should try to find a qualified healthcare practitioner who can custom design a protcol that fits your specific needs.

Cool post, thanks for sharing. I recently upped my Vitamin A dose along with zinc, at the same time taking potassium Iodide again. I've been feeling really really good and noticed some annoying little health problems that were bothering me are gone. I take a lot of other stuff too and who knows what I was really responding to, but I noticed the "brain fog" lifted right away when I started taking the iodine. It was very noticeable.

Re: IODINE - What they DON'T tell us about this MIRACLE nutrient! UNBELIEVABLE!
More Secrets:

Q: The secret to ageing?

A: The answer is all in the life blood-- We are made up of 3/4 water, and the rest, a fleshy tissue sponge, which the Iodine is automatically and naturally designed to keep pure at the cellular level.

According to medical science we get a new body cell-for-cell every 7 years, and even our skin, is new every 3 years.

So why do we age?

Without the designed-in firewall to the life blood that is Iodine, un-neutralized contaminants into the blood from the G.I. tract cause a defensive PH shift of the blood to a constant acid condition in the absence of required sufficiency of Iodine, in a last ditch effort to prevent multiplication and takeover of the system pathogenically. As result, new cells, and existing cells must live, heal, and regenerate in semi-permanent acid bath conditions, and a good night's sleep and healing at the cellular level is not allowed to take place as designed and required. As trace element active ingredient to the immune system, the body builds a cache and store of Iodine, and once saturated over 2-3 years, daily intake not as required.

The mouth that daily knows GSE and Iodine always enjoys fresh breath and is usually the most kissable on the spot.



* More Secrets to Ageing/ Gray Hair:

Iodine deficiency = Catalase Enzyme deficiency

Catalase deficiency = means a little too much free radical Oxygen/ Hydrogen Peroxide present over time @ cellular level = Gray Hair/ Ageing

[link to www.webmd.com]

[link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
[catalase significantly raised in the group drinking iodine]

"Most of us can simply look forward to suffering and dying from heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, macular degeneration- and the list goes on and on- unless we literally attack the underlying cause of all of these diseases- Oxidative Stress." [ Ray D. Strand, MD ]

“What we’re realizing now is that by intervening in the underlying aging process, we may be able to produce very significant increases in ’healthspan,’ or healthy lifespan.” [ Dr. Peter Rabinovich, lead researcher in the University of Washington study ].

More Secrets:

The inside scoop as from the future?

Trace Iodine is the body's built in blood purity firewall and gatekeeper against these:

- - IODINE --

The Essential Element

" Current recommended daily allowance ( RDA ) for Iodine now deemed to be 100x too low in quantity for disease and cancer prevention"


Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons Special Report:

Donald W. Miller, Jr., M.D.

[link to www.donaldmiller.com]

-- A MUST READ --


*WIRED NEWS: "Most of the cells in your body are not your own, nor are they even human..."



[link to www.wired.com]

"The scientists concentrated on bacteria. More than 500 different species of bacteria exist in our bodies, making up more than 100 trillion cells. Because our bodies are made of only some several trillion human cells, we are somewhat outnumbered by the aliens. It follows that most of the genes in our bodies are from bacteria, too."

Body Total = "100 trillion cells"

but only "several trillion" 'human cells'



------------------------------------------------------------



Dr. David Brownstein writes:

"My research has shown that after testing over 4,000 patients for their iodine levels, over 96% of those tested are significantly low in Iodine"


Q: Where does our trace Iodine go?

A: Drink water w/ bleach added?

Chlorine and Fluoride, as well as Bromide all displace protective Iodine from the bioreceptors, and unless living right on the ocean right sea edge with sea kelp wafting the Iodine into the air, you are most likely 100x deficient as is the other 96% of mankind.

Daily 50 mg Iodine resufficiency?
I simply google: jcrows5%



Iodine, also known as Potassium Iodide is surely our long lost most loyal friend.

Without it we are born retarded and the active ingredient of our immune system will be missing as well.


Q: Can Iodine make you smart?

"Cognitive activator"? It was interesting for me to look back and see that none of these larger type discoveries started coming to me until after I started an Iodine resufficiency effort of just a drop a day.

Tip: There is no reason you should feel bad?

There is no tox limit on the GSE you are taking, and you can easily be done with most of whatever besets your system, and personally take back your health at the cause level rather than at the symptom level, by going up to 150 drops each day till you reset the system if beset with feeling poorly.

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!

Not sure about the metals but kind of odd that they would mention Iodine, a halogen, being superior but moreover an antidote to three other halogens.
 Quoting: Evanight


hi
(OP) I am the original OP of this thread - I finally signed up for user name! LOL

Here is how I understand it:

Iodine - a halogen - is superior and an antidote to the other three halogens bromide, chloride and flouride, because iodine is a vital nutrient required by the body for the proper functioning of every body cell, while bromide, chloride and flouride are not necessary - they are body TOXINS. They are not necessary or needed by the body and are poisons that accumulate in the body.

The problem is that iodine and these three toxic halogens have similar structures - especially bromide. When you do not have enough iodine in your body, the receptor cells that usuually store the iodine are empty and essentially waiting for you to consume some iodine so those receptor sites can be filled. If you do not consume any iodine, or don't consume enough iodine, the receptor sites will be filled with the closest thing in structure to iodine - bromide (and possibly chloride and/or flouride).

Feel free to correct me here if I am wrong.

Just want to say again that I started taking the 32.5 mg potassium iodide tablets that I had here, hadn't taken them for a long time.

It seems like it had a very noticeable effect on my clarity of mind and ability to focus and concentrate. I have been having what they call "brain fog" problems which I thought were associated with menopause and which did respond to progesterone cream.

But since I started the iodine I felt like I didn't need the progesterone cream - whereas before I almost couldn't function without it, I would get very lethargic & did respond to it but now I feel like I am bursting with energy, I feel normal for the first time in a long time.

It could be a lot of different factors, but I do identify it as a response to the iodine, at least in part.

I do take a lot of other supplements as well.

Be careful not to mix up milligram (mg) and microgram (mcg) RDA is 150 mcg. A worthless level. In some of the info links a person can take up 1 or 2 milligrams per liter of water every day for years. (1000 to 2000 mcg per liter of water)

If not mixed well with water, straight iodine is "poison" and will kill the tissue it contacts. Hence, the "poison" warning on the bottles.

Disinfect drinking water with tincture of iodine:

"Small amounts may be added to suspect drinking water as a disinfectant (typically 5 mg free iodine per liter, or 5 drops of 2% tincture)."

Interesting, 5 mg per liter, that's a fair amount. Good info.

Has anybody tried painting on iodine? How long did it take to absorb a painted area? How long did it take to stop absorbing? Did you feel any better?

ive been painting 1% titratable iodine. it absorbs very quickly for me.

i wanna try drinking it dilluted, to get maximum effects.

my research says that when you paint it on, like 80% evaporates.

i do feel better since doing it........placeebo effect or real effects? lol.
