Japan Radiation Update 5: Question and Answer
Since the disaster in Japan began, I have been inundated with questions about supplementing with iodine. I apologize for not being able to answer all of your questions. I do try to read each and every question. Feel free to keep them coming (I may regret that statement). However, I will try and answer as many questions as I can. I will attempt to answer the commonly asked questions. Rest assured, in future books, newsletters, blogs, etc., I will try to answer all of your questions.

1. Can those with Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease take iodine?
A: I explain this topic in much more detail in my book, but let me summarize the answer. M research has shown that both Hashimoto’s and Graves’ disease are caused, in part, from low iodine. In fact, nearly every new patient with either a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease has tested significantly low for iodine. My experience has shown that the vast majority of patients suffering with these illnesses improve their condition when iodine deficiency is rectified. However, some people (including those with and without Hashimoto’s and Graves’ disease) may have problems with iodine supplementation. Of course, there can be an adverse effect to anything, iodine included.
The best results with iodine supplementation occur in those that have their levels checked and are followed by a health care provider who is knowledgeable about iodine. Furthermore, iodine supplementation works better when used as part of a complete holistic treatment regimen.

2. My understanding is that the reactor in Japan did not release any
radioactive gases into the atmosphere so no action is required of us here in
the United States. Is this true?
A: So far, the amount of radiation that has made its way to the North America has been small. However, if there is a nuclear meltdown, there will be much larger amounts released. This incident should be a wakeup call for Americans. If we eat better, exercise and maintain optimal whole body iodine sufficiency, there would be little concern about the amount of radioactive iodine that makes it to the U.S.
One final note. Even small amounts of radioactive iodine can be detrimental to those who are iodine deficient. It is best to maintain iodine sufficiency.

3. How many days should I take iodine?
A: The best results obtained with iodine are seen in those who use it for the long-term. Over the last 30 years, due to the toxic world we live in, our iodine requirements have markedly increased. This is due to the increasing amounts of toxic halides bromide, fluoride and chlorine that have permeated our food supply and our consumer goods. If we maintain iodine sufficiency, we will not have to worry about radiation clouds from Japan. How much iodine is required to maintain body sufficiency? My experience has shown that, for most adults, 6-50mg/day will achieve sufficiency. However, there may be some people that need more and some that need less. Remember, it is best to work with a health care provider knowledgeable about iodine. He/she can test your levels and make the appropriate recommendations.

4. Do children need iodine?
A: Yes, children need iodine just as adults need it. However, children need lower doses. They need to be dosed down for their size. A good rule of thumb for children is 0.08mg I/pound. I am not suggesting that anyone supplement a child without seeking care from their health care provider (that also holds for adults).

I will try to answer more questions in upcoming blogs.

Re: IODINE INFO MUST READ!!!! Dr. Brownstein, Michigan Iodine Guru, Japan Radiation Update
Japan Radiation Update 4
This is my fourth post about the Japanese nuclear disaster. First, I have to give credit to the U.S. government for suggesting that U.S. citizens move further away (50 miles) from the radiation danger. This action would serve to verify the severity of the crises.

I believe this crisis should highlight the need for each of us to take a more active role in our own health care decisions. It is important to take the proper steps to achieve your optimal health before a crisis arises. Many times these steps include eating a healthy diet and taking the correct supplements. My experience has shown that ensuring an adequate iodine level is one piece of the puzzle to obtaining your optimal health.

If the Japanese are not able to control the nuclear reaction that is occurring a true nuclear meltdown will occur. What will that mean to us? A nuclear meltdown could cause a large radiation cloud to leave Japan and deposit radiation over the U.S. However, that has not occurred yet. If that occurs, it is important to take precautions including ensuring that you and your family are taking iodine.

Here is how it works. Iodine binds to receptors throughout the body. For example, there are receptors for iodine in the thyroid gland. When iodine binds to its receptors, thyroid hormone is produced. Individuals who are iodine deficient suffer the majority of problems when exposed to radioactive iodine. In these people, radioactive iodine will bind to wherever there are open or empty iodine receptors. After radioactive iodine binds to these receptors, the surrounding tissue will be destroyed due to the radioactive iodine. Furthermore, it will damage the DNA of the surrounding cells. Damaged DNA is one cause of cancer.

Which tissues bind iodine? The largest concentration of iodine occurs in the thyroid gland. However, the largest amount of iodine is found in the fat tissue. Large concentrations of iodine are also found in many other tissues including the breast, ovary, uterus, and prostate. If radioactive iodine binds to any of these sites, it will destroy surrounding tissue and potentially damage DNA. This can lead to long-term problems such as cancer of these tissues.
It is important to keep in mind that every cell needs and utilizes iodine. Therefore, radioactive iodine exposure can have a dramatic effect on the body.

Exposure to radiation is cumulative. That means any exposure to ionizing radiation builds up in the body over time. We should all strive to minimize exposure to radiation. Some forms or radiation are unavoidable such as normal background radiation. However, radioactive iodine emitted from a nuclear disaster in Japan (or anywhere else) is largely avoidable if your body is iodine sufficient.

If your body has enough iodine binding to its receptors in the thyroid, breasts, ovaries, etc., then the radioactive iodine has nowhere to bind. That is why it is so important to have your iodine levels checked before a disaster such as this occurs. If you are iodine deficient, you can rectify this problem by simply taking iodine.

Due to our exposure to so many toxic items that inhibit or block iodine utilization in the body--fluoride, bromide and chlorine--our body’s need for iodine has dramatically increased over the last 30 years. My experience has shown that milligram amounts of iodine are necessary for achieving whole-body iodine sufficiency. In fact, any iodine supplementation program should strive for whole body iodine sufficiency, not just thyroid sufficiency.

How much iodine is needed to achieve whole-body iodine sufficiency? My clinical experience has clearly shown that milligram amounts of iodine are needed to achieve whole-body sufficiency. These amounts can vary between 6-50mg/day for most people. Some may need more, some less.

There is no doubt that the radiation cloud from Japan will pass over the U.S. This radiation exposure is a potential health risk. How much iodine should you take to ensure that your body will not absorb radioactive iodine? Without proper testing, it is impossible to say what dose is perfect for everybody. However, I have recommended that adults take 12-14mg/day of a combination of iodine and iodide. That amount will prevent nearly 95% of radioactive iodine from binding to the thyroid gland and still leave other amounts of iodine available for the rest of the body’s need. Children will need smaller amounts. You can dose a child down for his/her size. A general rule of thumb for children is 0.08mg I/pound of body weight. If a newborn is breast feeding, they do not need iodine supplementation if the mother is iodine sufficient. Iodine can be excreted in the breast milk.

I generally recommend either Lugol’s iodine, Iodoral (from Optimox) or Iodozyme Hp (from Biotics). Lugol’s iodine dosage is 2 drops per day (12.5mg) or 1 tablet of each of either Iodoral or Optizyme HP (both products are 12.5mg/ tablets). When should people begin iodine supplementation? At this point, with the disaster still progressing, I would say it is time to begin supplementation with iodine.

As with any substance, there can be problems with iodine supplementation. Before beginning supplementation, it is best to discuss this option with your health care provider. More information about iodine can be found in my books, Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can't Live Without It and Overcoming Thyroid Disorders.

In the next few days, I will begin to answer some of the many questions sent to me.

Japanese Radiation Update 3
As the news in Japan worsens, I am getting more and more questions about what to do. Let me try and address as many questions as possible. I will keep blogging about this until most of the questions are answered.

First, I believe the Japanese government is not being truthful about the magnitude of the disaster. I believe they do not want to create a panic. This disaster is far from over. In Japan, I feel the situation will get much worse before it gets better. However, for those of us in North America, we will get a much smaller dose of radioactive iodine as compared to the Japanese.

Therefore, the most important thing to keep in mind is do not panic. I do not believe that people will by dying in the U.S. due to the radioactive spread from Japan. However, depending on the amount of radiation released and weather patterns, it is not clear what our exposure will be. I may be wrong on my assessment. Time will tell.

The good news is that there is a safe and effective treatment widely available that prevents harm from exposure to radioactive iodine. It is the use of nonradioactive, inorganic iodine. That is the form of iodine I have been researching and using in my practice for nearly 10 years.
What dose of iodine will prevent damage from exposure to radioactive iodine? My mentor, Dr. Guy Abraham’s research answered this question. His research indicated that milligram doses (note: this is 1,000 times a microgram dose) are necessary to prevent radioactive iodine from damaging the thyroid gland. How much? Around 13mg/day prevents approximately 96% of radioactive iodine from binding to the thyroid gland. That is the approximate dosage of iodine ingested daily by the Japanese. This is over 100x the average daily dose ingested by Americans.

Please keep in mind it is not just the thyroid gland that is at risk with exposure to radioactive iodine. The breasts, ovaries, uterus, prostate, skin, and other organs all bind and require iodine for optimal functioning. In fact, every cell in our body requires iodine for optimal functioning. Therefore, if we are iodine deficient, exposure to radioactive iodine can potentially result in damage to all the cells of the body. My experience has shown over 95% of patients are deficient in iodine.

I believe iodine deficiency is one of the underlying causes of the epidemic of cancer of the breast, thyroid, ovaries, uterus and prostate. Furthermore, iodine deficiency is the underlying cause of thyroid disorders including Hashimoto’s disease, Grave’s disease, goiter, and hypothyroidism. Our iodine levels have fallen 50% over the last 30 years. During that time, all of the above conditions have been rising at near epidemic rates.

I have written extensively about these ideas in my book, Iodine Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It.
Who should supplement with iodine? If you don’t have a contraindication to iodine supplementation, I believe it should be a part of most people’s daily regimen. As with any substance, some people may not tolerate iodine. My experience has shown that most people can tolerate the doses I have written about. Before supplementing with iodine, I suggest discussing this with your health care provider.

I will do my best to keep you updated on this situation. Let’s send our thoughts, prayers, and support to the Japanese.

Re: IODINE INFO MUST READ!!!! Dr. Brownstein, Michigan Iodine Guru, Japan Radiation Update
I am from MI and discovered Dr. Brownstein last October, when my mother was diagnosed with iodine deficiency-related dementia. My entire family has been using lugols (5 drops, in a shot glass, mixed with water) every morning since November/Dec. No one in my family fell ill this winter with flu (knock wood, a first)... my cold hands and feet- gone. It gives loads of energy, makes the moods more stable. In short, it's pretty amazing. I wish I would've known about this earlier. My mama had thyroid issues, lupus, you name it... ANOTHER THING-- I suffered from fibrocystic breasts and within a week of lugols-- GONE. All the fear mongering re iodine supplementation is likely big pharma's fault. It's much more lucrative to keep people sick than to supplement and cure.

Based on what I've learned so far on both these important nutrients...getting adequate levels of Vitamin D & Iodine could dramatically decrease cancer statistics...and dramatically decrease other illnesses as well.

I have no info directly on Iodine and Dementia except to say that various organs prefer either Iodine or IoDIDE .... and in the case of the Brain & Cerebriel Spinal Fluid it's IoDIDE ...

I would do more research if I were you...as there is a detox effect you have to be aware of when supplementing Iodine.

Here is a very good thread on the subject. Read everything, click on everything and listen to the interviews. You won't regret it.

But I also saw Valerie Saxion's health program about a year or so ago where a woman Nita Scoggan's claimed to have completely healed her husband (who had full blown alzheimers) with various supplements. I know one of them was Phosphotidyl Serine (PS) ... not sure what the others were but she did write a book about it and I found the book at Valarie's website.

Due to this show and for other reasons I researched to find out what nutrients help brain function and found this. I found Vinpocetine & DMAE along with the PS to be very helpful with memory.

no, he didn't... but I read about his studies and printed out TONS of his work for her doctor and demanded that he test her for this... and guess what? BINGO!

She is also Asian-- another big clue was that she told me when she was in Manila half the year, she was 'fine' and it was true. She lives on the ocean there part of the year, but when she comes home to Michigan her condition just deteriorates.

PLEASE please show Brownstein's work to her doctor. You guys are in my prayers. We've been going thru hell with this all year.

But I also saw Valerie Saxion's health program about a year or so ago where a woman Nita Scoggan's claimed to have completely healed her husband (who had full blown alzheimers) with various supplements. I know one of them was Phosphotidyl Serine (PS) ... not sure what the others were but she did write a book about it and I found the book at Valarie's website.

Due to this show and for other reasons I researched to find out what nutrients help brain function and found this. I found Vinpocetine & DMAE along with the PS to be very helpful with memory.

Also check out this link...about a Doctor reversing her husbands Alzheimer's with Coconut Oil ... don't disregard this...there is science to back up her claims.

Here's more info from Dr. Mercola on this subject.

Hope this helps.

EXCELLENT INFO! Thanks SO much!

As I said, my mother feels very 'normal' when she is in Manila for part of the year. Her diet includes daily coconut (fresh buko juice and young coconut meat), also. They are on the ocean and consume massive amounts of fish... I am going to read these links you sent. MUCH gratitude!!!

Re: IODINE INFO MUST READ!!!! Dr. Brownstein, Michigan Iodine Guru, Japan Radiation Update
Thanks for posting.

I have Grave's disease (hyper thyroid) and have been unmedicated for 20 months.

Most of the time I feel okay, and my thyroid hasn't been enlarged.

A few minutes ago I noticed the right side of my neck is swollen lengthwise (and it hurts!) and I have been having heart palpitations all day.

I'm in northern Virginia and wonder if I've been smacked with a radioactive iodine cloud or what. Something sure happened..

3 years ago my doctor warned me against any iodine supplementation, even the low dose in multivitamins. She said it would f--k me up or kill me.

Against doctor's advice, in Sept. 2009 I quit taking the thyroid inhibitor. I felt worse on the meds and it made me fat. I dropped 40 pounds in 3 months. Yikes! Have not gained it back. Haven't been to a doctor since then, either.

Not sure what to do.

Re: IODINE INFO MUST READ!!!! Dr. Brownstein, Michigan Iodine Guru, Japan Radiation Update
Hello, I stumbled upon your post when doing a web search for iodine deficiency related dementia. You said your mother was diagnosed with this. My mother is suffering from dementia as well and I was wondering if iodine supplementation might help. Has your mother's dementia improved with iodine supplementation? How much is she taking? Did Dr. Brownstein diagnose her? I too live in Michigan. We attended a lecture by Dr. Brownstein about month ago. I purchased his book on iodine and am currently taking iodine myself. Thanks. =^..^=

I have no info directly on Iodine and Dementia except to say that various organs prefer either Iodine or IoDIDE .... and in the case of the Brain & Cerebriel Spinal Fluid it's IoDIDE ...

Read everything on this thread and listen to the interviews & lecture ...

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

then go to curezones Iodine supplementation forum. There are people there who have been supplementing with Iodine for 4 years and have become very knowledgeable.

In the state of Michigan, many bipolar diagnosis are actually iodine deficiencies.

My own mother was diagnosed with iodine deficiency related dementia.
