Please do not take iodine if you have Hashimoto's or a selenium deficiency
[QUOTE=Paleobird;872264]Anyone making medical diagnoses over the net without ever meeting their "patient" is not a real doctor, IMO, and should have their license revoked. That is the height of irresponsibility.[/QUOTE]
I made the mistake of taking iodine, thinking I was doing something good for myself and I got iodine induced autoimmune hypothyroidism. It DESTROYED my thyroid and sent my life into a tailspin. STAY AWAY FROM IODINE TREATMENTS PLEASE! THEY ARE DANGEROUS. Especially for the thyroid. A once daily supplement and a proper diet will give you all the iodine you need. Anything more is dangerous. Take it from me. Don't make the same mistake I made. I almost died and am lucky to be alive. Find a doctor you trust, preferably an MD who also does TCM. Consult with that doctor before you take ANYTHING. A good doctor would know iodine is, yes, like throwing gasoline on a fire for hashimotos. Stay away!
