    Rory,
    I started 18 months ago at 500yg (1/2mg) and then titrated up to 50 mg over the next 6 months. As I moved up above 25mg a day, my prostate problems faded away. Today I piss like a racehorse. You can read all about it in the official iodine thread in my signature area.

    Women in my neighborhood cured themselves of Fibrocystic Breast disease. Read about it here:

    Also the author of this book cured herself of breast cancer with iodine:

    She also cured her brain fog, poor memory and hypothyroid. All are iodine deficiency symptoms.

    This whole thread is kinda crazy....I have never even thought about iodine and whether I'm getting enough or not. Is the implication that, by eliminating grains and processed carbs, I am no longer getting enough iodine? What if I eat fish, and meat, and vegetables? Am I ok? I am inclined to believe so....but I am currently watching the 'Iodine Why You Need It' videos......

    Barnyard,
    Iodine deficiency is a national pandemic because of soil depletion of vital minerals. Eating seafood & sea veggies helps, but is not recommended because of contamination. Pure Lugols iodine or iodoral is a better choice. Men are not so much at risk. Do you suffer from cold hands, cold feet? Then your thyroid is deficient iodine, and you are hypothyroid. Do you have prostate problems? Low testosterone? Answer is iodine.

    Women suffer from iodine deficiency FAR MORE than men. Brain fog, depression, hypothyroid, fibrocystic breasts, cysts in ovaries & uterus, uterus fibroids & hormonal problems all result from iodine deficiency. Doctors & hospitals are getting rich on women who only need iodine in their diet. Female organs, uterus, ovaries, breasts and the thyroid, brain are all fighting each other for inadequate iodine nutrition, and one or more of these organs will develop severe deficiency symptoms. Most commonly hypothyroid & depression.

    If you have a facebook account, there is a very active world wide iodine group where you can learn more on this subject for family & friends:

    Jerrod Soldier says, Prostate problems cured with iodine:
    August 9, 2013 at 11:49 am
    "I suffered from enlarged prostate (diagnosed benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostatitis with PSA =10) with bleeding, obstruction of semen and urine, pain, urgency, frequency of urination etc (up to ten times per night) with symptoms increasing over a period of 30 years. Within one week of iodine intake (5mg tincture of iodine per day added to liquids) the bleeding and obstruction stopped, enabling me to have an external ejaculation which I hadn’t had in several years. Before that, ejaculations (with blood) had been internally obstructed until up to 12 hours later when the semen mixed with blood would leak out. The pain, urgency and frequency of urination is now reduced to near zero. My prostate feels much different now, almost as if it is anaesthetized when I urinate. I had had so much irritation for so many years when urinating, that it is peculiar now to not feel anything when I go. There is zero doubt that all of this improvement (which has continued for about 3 months now) is due to the iodine. I have switched to nutritional iodine 5-10 mg per day rather than tincture and the dramatic improvements remain. I have had no blood whatsoever, and no semen retention since that first week on iodine."

    This is very similar to my own prostate recovery, although my symptoms were not this severe. I was in the beginning stages toward this man's problems.

    Barnyard,

    So sad to hear about losing your Prostate. However, you still need the iodine protocol for your thyroid to prevent hypothyroidism (cold hands, cold feet, nodules & swollen thyroid ) and your testes needs iodine avoid low testosterone.

    Iodine is VITAL for the women in your life, to prevent (and cure) lumpy bumpy painful breasts called fibrocystic breast disease, cysts in the ovaries similar to PCOS, and uterus problems (cysts, fibroids & Endo )

    Every cell in our body requires iodine for optimal health. Dr. Brownstein recommends 50 mg daily with co-supplements:

    Dr. Cousens - The-Universal--Holistic-Super-Mineral

    From a larger physiological perspective, it is important to realize that the thyroid is only one gland of many glands and tissues that needs iodine. Other glands/organs/systems with high Iodine uptake are the breasts, ovaries, cervix, blood, lymph, bones, gastric mucosal, salivary, adrenal, prostate, colon, thymus, lungs, bladder, kidney, and skin. In perspective, the thyroid holds 50 milligrams of iodine, the breasts hold 200 milligrams, the skin holds 400 milligrams of iodine, and the whole body holds 2,000 milligrams, and possibly much more. Iodine is found and used in every hormonal receptor in the body.

    There are so many important functions of iodine that it is hard to put them into proper order of importance. The implications of iodine sufficiency go far beyond the levels necessary to avoid cretinism, brain damage, and goiter; and based on the previous cited studies, it is possible that the FDA’s recommended dosage may not even give the minimal protection from these nutritional deficiency diseases.

    There are more than twenty-two functions of iodine. These important functions include:

    1)Iodine helps synthesize thyroid hormones and prevents both hypo- and hyperthyroidism.

    2)Iodine sufficiency reverses hypo- and hyperthyroidism.

    3)Iodine supports apoptosis. From a broader perspective, one of iodine’s major functions, in conjunction with oxygen, is to support the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death of unhealthy cells), to protect against cancer and facilitate youthing.

    4)Iodine activates hormone receptors and helps prevent certain forms of cancer. The primary cause of cancer, from an energetic perspective, is mitochondrial failure. It is clear that the prevention of cancer, particularly cancer of the breasts, thyroid, ovaries, stomach, and esophagus, is increased with iodine sufficiency. Iodine serves to prevent lipid peroxidation especially in Breast Cancer . Deficiencies of iodine also increase the incidences of breast cancer.

    5)Iodine protects ATP function and enhances ATP production.

    6)Iodine prevents fibrocystic breast disease.

    7)Iodine decreases insulin needs in diabetics.

    8)Iodine helps support protein synthesis.

    9)Iodine deficiency is a global health threat. Iodine deficiency, in the general population, yields 1-10% cretinism, 5-30% brain damage, and 30-70% loss of energy. In this holistic context, iodine deficiency is a major threat to global health. Iodine deficiency has increased fourfold in the last 40 years and is considered the most common and yet preventable cause of brain damage throughout the world.

    10)Iodine destroys pathogens, molds, fungi, parasites, and malaria.

    11)Iodine supports immune function.

    12)Iodine eliminates toxic halogens from the body (including radioactive I-131). One of the most critical toxic health issues we have today is the exposure of radioactive I-131 from Fukushima. We still have continued and increasing exposure from Fukushima, and unlike Chernobyl, Fukushima has not been sealed off. When the thyroid, as well as the whole body, is filled with healthy iodine (I-127), because of I-127’s similar outer electron shell, in higher saturation levels, it can provide significant protection of vulnerable receptor sites from uptake of radioactive I-131 and also push out radioactive I-131 already present. This is known as competitive inhibition, and explains why Chernobyl survivors who took iodine, even after the nuclear fallout, escaped thyroid cancer.

    13)Iodine regulates estrogen production in the ovaries.

    14)Iodine is anti-mucolytic (meaning it reduces mucus catarrh).

    15)Iodine neutralizes hydroxyl ions and hydrates the cells.

    16)Iodine makes us smarter. As previously mentioned iodine helps with mental functioning. Low iodine is associated with low IQ’s with a difference of up to 13.5 points as cited in the Bleichrodt study of 1994 in children; but iodine deficiency is also associated with mental functioning in adults, because iodine not only chelates lead, but, according to Dr. Jorge Flechas, iodine prevents lead from lodging in the body in the first place. This occurs if enough iodine is supplemented, as discussed above, in order to push out fluoride, a culprit responsible for lead accumulation in the body. Low thyroid function decreases brain circulation, which slows intellectual function. Dr. Steven Langer in the book Solved: The Riddle of Illness, points out that low thyroid function is associated with cognitive impairment, memory loss, depression, slowness of mind, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, and a variety of psychiatric disorders. Bleichrodt, in 1994, did a meta-analysis looking at 17 studies showing iodine sufficiency increases IQ by 13.5 points in children.

    17)Iodine prevents heart disease

    18)Iodine is needed with the use of cordless phones, Cell Phone s and now smart meters to prevent hypothyroidism.

    19)Iodine supports pregnancy (as the fetus undergoes more apoptosis than any other developmental stage).


    20)High doses of iodine may be used to reverse certain diseases. At 6 grams daily (which is 6 million micrograms/day or 6,000 milligrams/day!), a much higher dose, iodine has been used to cure syphilis, skin lesions, and chronic lung disease.


    21)High doses of iodine may be used for wounds, bedsores, inflammatory and traumatic pain, and restoration of hair growth when applied topically. Iodine has many other uses, including relieving headaches and eliminating toenail fungus.

    22)Iodine helps in the diminishing of tissue scarring, cheloid formations, and Dupuytren’s and Peyronie’s contractures, which are hyper-scarring conditions.

    I eat kelp granules 4 days, or so, a week (about 3 mgs of iodine) and use iodized salt. I read that iodine deficiency was linked to fibrocystic changes in breast tissue and that supplemental iodine may help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Having had breast cancer and fibrocystic breast tissue, I was motivated to try supplementing with kelp in the hopes that it would keep me from being iodine deficient but delivering the iodine in a whole-food form that might reduce the risk of any negative effects. (Breast Cancer Choices Supplement Strategy - Iodine) One of Mark's blog posts mentions eating kelp granules as part of a regimen of including sea vegetables in one's diet.

    I believe you need to consider selenium when supplementing with iodine. If I'm not mistaken, the two are sometimes prescribed together for hypothyroidism, and that, if you have Hashimoto's, it's a good idea to figure out if you are iodine and/or selenium deficient.
