  • Iodine and burn victims!

    Yes note that he says 3 times a day painting iodine on the perineum, so he suggests Almond oil.

    Thanks for the info abcxyz!

    For burn victims it was once a day with 10% straight iodine set in alcohol, no oil. I would have thought that a bit much for the damaged tender, very sensitive skin that hadn't suffered nerve damage from severe burns. At any rate mine is 5% straight elemental iodine set in alcohol, every other day near that area. I make my iodine with golden grain so it is not quite as pure but then I used 5% iodine set in it and would thin it very rapidly on my loins. But I must say that Grizz's Grapeseed oil is incredible for no burn at all!

    Treatment of Burns by Tincture of Iodine
    By O. F. MERCIER, M.D., Montreal
    THE CANADIAN NURSE:
    a Monthly Journal for the Nursing Profession in Canada
    Editor and Business Manager MISS HELEN RANDAL, R.N.
    VOL. XVII. VANCOUVER, B.C., MARCH, 1921 No. 3 NURSES, 1920-1921

    For a couple of years past, convinced (by an accidental experience)
    of the value of the tincture of Iodine in the treatment and cure of burns,
    I have adopted its use systematically in my hospital service, as well as
    in my civil practice ; and to-day, after different experiences in a number
    of varying- cases, from the slightest to the most severe, I thought it
    would be advisable to appear here before your honorable meeting and
    give you my sincere opinion upon this treatment.
    I have said that my first experience was an accidental one. and I
    should have added that this experience was obtained upon myself.
    One day I had the misfortune to burn a small spot, of about three-
    quarters of an inch diameter, upon the palmar surface of my left hand ;
    this burn was of the second degree, and excessively painful. Having on
    hand in my office a small bottle of the 10 per cent, tincture of iodine, I
    covered the burn with it. Of course, the application was painful, but
    I felt immediately a complete relief it stopped the pain at once ; and
    the next morning I was so well that, having some operations to perform
    at the Xotre Dame Hospital, I was able to attend to my duty and oper
    ate that morning upon several cases which were on my list, and that
    without the least pain. I could wash, brush my hands, keep them cov
    ered with the rubber gloves for a few hours, without any inconvenience ;
    and the blister never burst, but dried up in two or three days, leaving
    under it a tissue of new formation of normal coloration and suppleness.
    Judging from this result, and not knowing that this treatment had
    already been tested by Baumgarten in France, I started using it sys
    tematically in the Xotre Dame Hospital, having in my mind that, if it
    could do for a small thing, most probably it would be satisfactory in
    more severe cases. The result, fortunately, confirmed to the utmost my
    expectations, and to-day I am here in a position to tell you that I con
    sider it to be the best treatment I ever used against this accidental
    disease.
    As far as I can understand, the treatment was rejected in France
    on account of the fear that it might be injurious to the kidneys; but in
    all the different cases in which I have used it I have constantly watched
    closely the function of that organ, and in no case could I detect any
    trouble, clinical, functional or chemical. In fact, in one of my last cases,
    the patient was a young lad of about twelve years, who was certainly
    burnt over at least the half of the surface of his whole body, and even
    in that case no trouble whatever could be detected with his kidneys.
    Another objection that one can raise is the pain caused by the appli
    cation. I have, of course, to admit that the treatment is painful during
    its application and for the few minutes (say four or five) following it;
    but as soon as the pain so caused is over, the pain that always accom
    panies the burn is completely suppressed and the patient feels a complete
    relief. In one case, to which I would like to draw your attention, a
    woman, of about forty years old, having had her two arms, forearms
    and hands badly burned to the second degree, and, in some spots, going
    as far as the third degree, I tried treating her on one arm with anti
    septic and anaesthetic ointment, and on the other one with the tincture of
    iodine, and she herself asked to have both arms treated with the iodine,
    feeling so much difference in the comfort caused by the above treatment
    compared with the ordinary antiseptic applications.
    At about the same time a man was brought into the hospital, ward
    St. Joseph, with a bad burn covering the surface of his face and head,
    neck and shoulders, hands and wrists. In this case I started the iodine
    treatment immediately after his entry in the hospital. The temperature,
    which went high from the start (104 degrees), was brought down to
    the normal in four days. Eight days after the accident the crust formed
    by the burn, epidermis hardened by the fluid, started to fall off, and
    fourteen days after the accident he was able to leave the hospital, com
    pletely cured, with a fine pink, supple, new skin, replacing all the one
    that was destroyed by the burn.

    We use it for disinfecting the skin before operations This is another application in which I sincerely believe it is going to prove again that it is the most important, the most
    powerful, and the most harmless of all antiseptics.

    I am convinced that Dr. Mercier used a very pure, smooth form of iodine set in 90 to 99 % alcohol much like Magnascent Iodine was made with.

    Note: that the Dr. Mercier strongly discouraged the use of methylated spirit (alcohol), this was wood alcohol that would cause blindness if ingested.

          Of course a multi has all of the required supplements, but just not enough of each. Look at the dosage in your supplement bottle and compare to the required dosage. You will see the amount is totally inadequate. If you know of a multi that has the correct supplement at the correct dosage, let me know the brand so we can recommend it for everyone. Dr. Brownstein did assume that we would be getting a portion of our needed supplements with food, so the required supplements list takes food into consideration.

          - - tsp Natural Celtic Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Redmonds Salt or Hawaiin black salt
          - - - If the sea salt is pure white, it is unacceptable (minerals have been stripped out )
          - - 200 mcg selenium (L-selenomethionine preferred)
          - - 400 mg Magnesium - Glycinate preferred
          - - 2,000mg Vitamin C - Ester-C preferred
          - - ATP Cofactors caplet contains both 100mg B2 & 500mg B3 non-flushing in the correct ratio. Take 1 caplet with iodine up to 50mg, then another caplet for each 50 mg iodine,

          If your multi has the correct mg of B2, B3, C, mag & selenium then go for it. I know that multi vitamins just don't have enough of each. Read the label on the bottle carefully. It is essential to get enough of each supplement.

          Vitamin D3 is indeed very important, but not part of the iodine protocol.

          You can do it your way, or follow doctors orders. Most of us prefer to follow doctors orders so we don't get into nasty thyroid problems . I'm sure you have seen the horror stories that have happened to people taking iodine without the required supplements. Things like hyperthyroidism, thyroid storm, Hashimotos Disease, trips to the emergency room. DON'T PLAY GAMES WITH YOUR THYROID. This is a very serious subject. If you do not want to follow doctors orders, then I suggest that you do not take iodine at all.

          Grizz
          d3 & c, granted, i take those as well. but a good multi will have the full spectrum of necessary supps (ie all the Bs and minerals)

          of course, the price reflects that
          beautiful
          yeah you are

          Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

              Once again, please tell us exactly which Multi provides ALL of the required iodine supplements. "Good" is not a brand name. Do you have a link? What is the exact brand name of your "good" multi?

              No such multi-vitamin exists - I have already searched. They all fail to provide the required dosages.

                  • Grizz, your constant reptition of the required supplements list DOCTOR'S ORDERS DAMMIT makes you look like a wild-eyed Internet freakizoid.

                    In an earlier list, you said that two Brazil nuts were a good source of the selenium instead of yet ANOTHER pill, so I'm sticking with the nuts.

                    Yesterday, I drank my first Lugol's. One drop in 8 oz water, and I drank about 1/6 of it. No effects that I could tell. I forgot it this morning, but I'll drink about 1/6th this evening and start up again. Confession: I have the ATP cofactors but I'm not taking them yet. I'm taking a double dose of the regular B vitamin, which is about half the ATP cofactors. I'll tritrate it up with the iodine dosage.

                    I have to give the moles research a break for about a week, sorry.
                    If I use the bigger band-aid I damage the skin, but I get a good scab layer and that peels off a bit of mole.
                    If I use a tiny home-made spot band-aid, or direct drops, or grapeseed oil, my skin is better but I get no good scab and no peel.
                    It's almost as if I have to take out layers of skin along with the mole.
                    I've been at this for two months and I can't tell what my progress is because my skin is either red from peeling, or brown from the iodone.
                    So I'm going to let everything heal and peel to see if there is any actual progress, then start applying iodine again.

                    Dave RN, if you have to get up only once at night, isn't that normal? It's pretty normal for me.

                    • Oxide,

                      Brazil nuts contain a lot of selenium, but the amount of selenium in each nut is not consistent or reliable. I take brazil nuts in my daily supplements, but I take 3 large nuts or 4 small nuts just to be sure of getting the required 200mcg of selenium. Even then I'm not sure of getting enough because their selenium content is so dependent upon the soil they are grown in. We had this discussion several months ago.

                      When my brazil nuts are gone, I'm switching to the Selenium L-selenomethionine Tablets, because they are a more reliable dosage. Members can get their 200mcg of selenium any way they want.

                      What do you say to members who refuse to take the required co-supplements?

                        • The 400mg magnesium and 1,000mg vit C are like the size of horse pills. I seriously have trouble swallowing those damn suckers. I wish there was a magician to transform those into a tiny multi vitamin i can swallow easily.
