Iodine therapy for thyroid and immune support

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Thyroid Help(NaturalHealth365) Did you know that doctors once considered iodine therapy one of the most effective treatment protocols on the planet? Naturally, this was before the pharmaceutical cartel seized control of conventional medicine.

A lack of iodine can make it difficult to properly detoxify the body; create thyroid dysfunction and promote cancer cell growth. Dr. David Brownstein, an iodine expert suggests that most of the population is grossly deficient in this valuable mineral. Find out how iodine therapy can help eliminate dis-ease and promote optimal health – fast!

Is your modern lifestyle robbing you of iodine?

In the 1920s, goiter, or enlarged thyroid gland was a common health problem until we added iodine to salt. But, today, many people have reduced their iodized salt consumption and added chlorine, fluoride and bromide to their diets. The problem is – chlorine, fluoride and bromide lower natural iodine levels within the body by blocking iodine receptors.

Keep in mind, chlorine is commonly used to help “purify” the water in place of iodine. According to conventional dentists – who have been brainwashed by the biggest corporations in the world – fluoride will help “strengthen our teeth” – yeah right. And, bromines replaced iodides in most commercially sold baked goods – since the 1980s. All three of these elements are extremely toxic for the thyroid and dangerous for the rest of our body.

Did you know that bromide can cause depression, headaches, hallucinations or even schizophrenia? And, by the way, there are no long-term studies that show fluoride has any beneficial effect on human health.

The connection between Iodine and breast cancer rates

Observational studies suggest there is a strong connection between thyroid dysfunction and breast cancer. Currently, one in seven American women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Yet, thirty years ago, when iodine consumption was much higher than it is today – one in 20 women developed breast cancer. Need I say more?

It’s interesting to note that women in Japan, that consume high levels of dietary iodine, have much lower rates of breast cancer and thyroid problems. But, when those women move to the United States and adopt a Western diet, including much less iodine – their rates of breast cancer and thyroid diseases increase dramatically! Vitamin D; iodine supplementation and fresh, organic whole foods would turn a sick nation around – overnight! It’s time to wake up humanity to a better way of living.

    You and a lot of others always claim that hypothyroid is caused by lack of iodine. I have never cut down my consumption of salt. I’ve taken supplements containing iodine for many years. Nothing worked. My thyroid actually gotten worst through the years. I wish there is actually a cure or supplement for this. It seems there is always something one can do for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes 2 (which I have – all three) but nothing for hypothyroid.

    Want to hear more about iodine and from Terry. Sounds like a great show.
    Couple of questions – Does a salt craving indicate a need for iodine? My mom (now in nursing home) has tyroid issues, obese, and on diaretics, had serious mood swings. Also she craved salt. Wondering how much of was lack of iodine?

    Now I am postmenpause and am finding my body is changing like my moms. I eat lots of veggies/fruits/very healthy but find the weight and body are changing like my mom. I have started craving salt over past year. . I have a sluggish throid and started taking Kelp (craving has lessened some) but how to kick start. Yes I am about to do a seven day juice cleanse. looking forward to it.

    Any treatment for hyperactive thyroid? Docs want to prescribe radioactive iodineto kill it off or toxic chemicals to suppress it. I’d sure like to do something natural

    Bugleweed is the herb of choice for an overactive thyroid. If you have a rapid pulse/heartbeat and high blood pressure you might want to add Motherwort and Lemon Balm/Valerian. Use as teas as well. Please research this and try before using pharmaceuticals. This advice is given not knowing your medical history :))


    Dr. Brownstein is the finest doctor who knows what to do to enhance our Thyroid…and he recommends taking up to 50mg. of Lugol’s Iodine drops. That works for me, and I also take 120 mg. Armour Thyroid daily.
    Check our Dr. Brownstein online.

    Liz, I suggest you google Cris Kresser thyroid, and hopefully you will find his site and go straight to his report on thyroid issues and best ways of dealing. Excellent site, so much information and experience from treating his patients. Not just, take iodine, infact I believe the title may be ‘Hypothyroid, taking iodine could be throwing gasoline on to the fire’
    Hope this helps x

    Liz is the salt you use the white refined stuff/ If so switch to the pink Hymalayan salt or Celtic salt which has naturally occurring iodine also I find nascent iodine works well. I got mine from Namaste magazine

    I was dxd with multinodular goiter in 06 and not a thing was done except the radioactive iodine uptake test. WHY? I have no idea, other than the entire medical field is not functioning fully. Then in 2010 I allowed other specialists to conduct FNA’s. Zip/nadda. They ALL recommended surgery.

    I was on NO meds. Nothing. But to check for cancer they wanted to remove.

    I have been on iodine and all the supps since then. I basically told them “no thanks”

    The goiter shrank! How can that be???!! So I went organic glutenfree, NO CORN, NO SOY, NO SUGAR and my health is improving. I take magnesium, tumeric, selenium, and berry supps.

    A family member dxd with Hashimoto’s in 2005 also takes iodine and supps. Feels great and blood numbers that most doctors follow like zombies – are good. Takes T4 AND T3.
