Iodine deficiency can wreck havoc on your thyroid. Cleaning skin area with DMSO may be more accurate. NOTE: THIS IS A GUIDE ONLY, NOT a substitute for a blood test
* Yes the benefits of Iodine are well known, but guess what PREVENTS ABSORPTION (or AT BEST, INHIBITS it!) of Iodine? - FLUORIDE!!! Which apparently blocks the receptors that let the iodine IN!! - Sheer coincidence?
I have 2 videos on how to make your own fluoride free distilled water;https://youtu.be/Tcy0m7NDMpQ and the update;https://youtu.be/P6WqbOQu0Mw
The Iodine Patch Test is a great way to find out IMMEDIATELY if your body is deficient of iodine or not. No doctors, or waiting on a blood test. (*This is not an 'official' iodine test, NOR does is it a substitute for a blood test, but serves as a good guide that I discovered)
The ULTRA-FAST method shown here is a GUIDE; ideally, apply to soft area of skin (out of sight, because iodine STAINS !!) like inner thigh or soft upper arm area it ok
For an even more accurate 'reading' (this is NOT a substitute for other methods requiring NUMBERS); Paint a swatch of the iodine over your stomach, approximately 3 inches (6cm) in diameter, then observe how long it takes the color to fade from your skin. The faster the color fades, the greater the chance of iodine deficiency.
It’s a sign of severe iodine deficiency if the color fades in less then 4 hours. If the color remains after 24 hours, then it’s likely you are iodine sufficient.
95% of New Zealanders and Australians are Iodine deficient.
To supplement iodine safely and at the correct doses you need to test to get it right Iodine is one of the very few minerals you can accurately test for in urine and saliva Sodium fluoride (fluoridated water), Chloride (chlorinated water) and Bromide (found in bread and flour products) are toxic to the body and compete with iodine receptor sites. There is a very strong correlation between iodine deficiency and breast cancer.Breast cancer is the #1 killer for women in NZ, with an 18% increase in diagnosis over the past 10 years
…If you are low in iodine you will have an under functioning thyroid gland which means you will have:
50% INCREASE IN DEVELOPING ALZHEIMERS
LOW HCL PRODUCTION – FOOD INTOLERANCES
POOR COGNITIVE FUNCTION (LOWER PRODUCTIVITY, LOW SELF CONFIDENCE, LOW MOTIVATION, LOW CONCENTRATION)
A MUCH HARDER MENOPAUSE
INCREASED SENSITIVITY TO THE COLD
N.B. Iodine deficiency promotes free radical damage in the thyroid gland that puts the gland itself at risk.
BUYING WARNING: IODINE IN LUGOL'S SOLUTION
'Lugol's Iodine' solution is the most effective broad-spectrum microbicide. I am not aware of a medical drug with equal efficacy...Therefore health authorities in most or all developed countries are presently trying to make it unavailable for natural therapists and self-healing under the pretext that it might be used to produce illegal drugs. It is now difficult to obtain and I have become aware of deceptive methods being used by chemists or pharmacists (probably under instruction from health authorities).
In New Zealand, for instance, a product is being sold as 4% Lugol's solution with 250 mcg of total iodine per drop (from iodine and potassium iodine). People used this product for Candida treatment without realizing that the iodine content is only 4% of what it should be. Therefore, instead of 8 drops per dose of regular Lugol's solution one would need to take 8 ml per dose of this product. Not realizing this, those who try this low-potency product will conclude that Lugol's solution does not work and (as hoped for no doubt, by health authorities and the Pharmaceutical industry) may return to medical drugs. I suspect that similar tactics are also being used in other countries.
In the US regular Lugol's solution with 10% total iodine (from 10% potassium iodide and 5% iodine in water) is now outlawed. The highest total amount of iodine allowed is 2.2%. In the US you are still able to buy Iodoral tablets which have the same iodine content as 2 drops of Lugol's solution, or 13 mg per standard tablet, but even 50 mg tablets are available
When buying Lugol's solution, always compare the stated iodine values on the bottle with standard or regular Lugol's solution. This has a total iodine concentration of 10% from 10g of potassium iodide and 5g of elemental iodine per 100 ml, and nominal 6.5 mg of iodine per drop...
