Work with your healthcare professional to integrate an iodine protocol that suits your specific needs.
Understanding the significance of iodine is crucial, particularly for the health of our cystic tissues. It’s imperative to grasp what iodine is and how to properly incorporate it into your routine.
Primarily utilized by organs like the breast (80%), ovaries, and prostate, iodine plays a vital role. Meanwhile, cells predominantly utilize potassium iodide, as every cell contains iodine receptors.
Personally, I opt for Nascent Iodine.
Given the absence of iodine in Australian soils for centuries, our primary dietary sources are kelp and shellfish. However, a major concern with kelp arises from its natural absorption of iodine from potentially toxic oceans, some of which have been releasing radioactive isotopes for several years. Consequently, many natural kelp beds now contain radioactive isotopes.
To assess iodine levels, consider an ELEMENTAL IODINE LOADING URINARY test, distinct from T3 or T4 tests. Remarkably, over 90% of the world’s population is iodine-deficient, posing a pervasive and perilous concern within our society. The development of the brain and the immune system is intricately linked to iodine, with mental retardation emerging as a common issue in infants born to iodine-deficient mothers.
It is essential to specifically request the urine loading test from your doctor or , as it also acts as a chelator for heavy metals and pesticides.
Belonging to the Halogen family of elements, iodine faces displacement in the body by fluoride, chloride, and bromide. Bromide, closely resembling iodine, forcefully displaces iodine from its receptor, leading to chronic ailments.
These elements, including bromide, are omnipresent in tap water and our food chain, notably in flour. Given their prevalence, supplementing with iodine becomes indispensable to counteract potential health risks.
I adhere to the protocol outlined by Dr. David Brownstein. The detox phase involves eliminating the toxic element, bromide, with the assistance of Himalayan salt water in the protocol. Begin with a gentle introduction of 3 drops of Nascent Iodine (approx 1500ug per drop) daily for a week, then incrementally increase to 6 drops.
My personal detox experience lasted 3-4 days, marked by a mild headache, alleviated by extra salt water drinks. The subsequent enhancement in brain clarity and systemic energy is remarkable. I currently take 3 drops of Nascent Iodine, available at the clinic.
Unfortunately, many doctors lack iodine literacy and may caution against larger doses. I advocate for education, suggesting interested doctors explore Dr. David Brownstein’s resources.
Before starting, two weeks of preparation with a Actived B Complex, Zinc Citrate or Piccolinate, Selenium Complex, Magnesium, Vitamin C, and quality salt are recommended. The protocol unfolds as follows:
Selenium: 200-400 mcg daily
Magnesium: 400-1200 mg daily
Vitamin C: 3,000-10,000 mg daily
Actived B Complex: 1-2 times daily
Unrefined Salt (Celtic): 1/2 tsp. or more daily
The protocol commences with 3 drops of Nascent Iodine for a week, followed by an increase to 6 drops for two weeks, then reaching 9 drops for two months. After two months, the dose can be reduced back to 3 drops, facilitating the removal of bromide from iodine receptors with the aid of saltwater consumption.
I personally maintain a dosage of 3 drops of Nascent Iodine every 2-3 days, alongside daily selenium intake and 1-2 tsp of Himalayan rock salt. I have successfully eliminated fluoride, chlorine, and bromide from my diet, water, and environment.
Initiating iodine therapy entails discontinuing tap water with fluoride and chloride and avoiding bromide-containing foods. Bromide exposure in the living environment, found in flame retardants, should also be monitored.
Water filters, such as reverse osmosis, distillation, or alkaline water filters, are recommended for fluoride removal. However, note that reverse osmosis/distilled water lacks salts, necessitating salt replacement.
My water filtration involves a 15-liter glass container with an alkaline water system, supplemented with 3-4 tsp of Himalayan rock salt. Supermarket-bought PUREAU water is a fluoride and chlorine-free alternative.
For further insights, Lynne Farrow’s “The Iodine Crisis” is a recommended read, and Dr. David Brownstein’s lectures on YouTube or his books provide comprehensive information as he is considered the pioneer of modern-day iodine therapy.
