    I suspect this is just another fad promoted to sell supplements to the unwary. I've had Hashimoto's for years, and one thing I've learned from my research into thyroid is that it is relatively rare for anyone in the U.S. to be iodine deficient because we've iodized salt for so long and added iodine into other foods.

    Iodine deficiency can cause non-Hashi's hypothyroidism, but that is mainly restricted to third-world countries. I've read that there hasn't been a documented case of hypo that was caused by iodine deficiency in the U.S. since the early part of the 20th century.

    Personally, I don't take any supplement unless I have a medical test that documents a deficiency--which is how I began taking Vit. D3.

    Grizz - Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I have been battling hypothyroidism for several years. The doc could never give me a reason why my TSH was high, only that it was. No Hashimoto's or other common reason. Anyway, when I started getting healthy from primal, I quit my synthroid, thinking it was BS to be taking it. I quit in May last year with a TSH of .55. By September, my TSH was at 2.5. I felt fine. In Dec it was 3.5--definitely trending up, and my feet started feeling cold and my neck ached like it did before I was put on Synthroid in 2005.
    I read your iodine posts and did a bit of research. Turns out I was raised in the heart of the "Goiter Belt" and probably have been iodine deficient my whole life. I have never been a regular user of table salt, and not a big eater of seaweed, salt-water fish, or other iodine foods. So where would I be getting iodine from?

    I bought some Kelp tablets last week from GNC (150mcg) and took 2 a day for the last 10 days. Cold feet gone, neck not hurting. I will request a TSH in the next couple weeks. If it's normal, I will be happy--and pissed that nobody figured this out before now.

    I watched the video, must admit I ff'd through some of it. The doc never mentions Kelp Pills. He says to supplement with a mixture of iodide and iodine. How do kelp tablets stack up against his recommendation? My bottle of kelp tabs say "150mcg Iodine (from kelp)".

    I'm hypothyroid and have supplemented with Lugol's solution but develop a rash on the scalp within 24-48 hrs of supplementing. I never salt anything, iodine patch test on skin takes 15+ hours to disappear. Some of my searching tells me this could be either an allergy to the iodine (although this is supposedly rare) or detox effects flushing out bromide (which is now used in place of iodine in manufactured food supply). I am hoping it's the latter, as I have had no dangerous reactions such as difficulty breathing, swelling, etc. typical of allergic reactions.

    Thanks for the video post, btw. Great info.

    I'll keep my kelp/iodine supplements in whole food form thank you.

    @otzie and all,

    Sorry I haven't been on this thread for a while. I have been spending a great deal of time researching Iodine.

    I have upped my dosage of Norwegian Kelp supplements from 1 mg to 2 mg a day ( 4 tabs to 8 tabs) because I was responding so well on 1 mg. On 1 mg, my sleep had improved dramatically - no more insomnia and my brain fog lifted. DREAMS IN COLOR from no dreams at all ! ! !

    Now at 2 mg, I notice my getting up in the middle of the night to urinate has gone from 3-4 to just once. A cure for prostatitis?

    Now I have 2 more amazing videos from a qualified doctor that report female problems are caused by iodine deficiency ! !
    Iodine Deficiency Linked to Cancer Part 1 - YouTube
    Iodine Deficiencies Linked to Cancer Part 2 - YouTube

    It is now clear that the government RDA of 150 MCG Iodine per day is a JOKE ! We have a national epidemic of iodine deficiency because of government corruption !

    I have decided to go to the "Japanese Dosage" of 12 mg daily using iodoral from Amazon. The Japanese get 12 mg daily from their seafoods that they eat.
    CLEARING UP THE IODINE CONFUSION PART 1
    Amazon.com: Optimox Iodoral 180 tabs: Health & Personal Care

    Every organ & cell in the body requires iodine, including the brain. We have been starved of this vital nutrient by government corruption. At 12 mg/day, it will take 1 year to refill the body reservoirs of iodine ! They thyroid requires iodine & the remaing cells in the body require iodide, both are supplied by iodoral. See this before starting iodoral:
    http://breastcancerchoices.org/iprotocol.html

    The biggest OUTRAGE of all, Bromide wipes out iodine in our body, and is included in bread and anything else made of flour, used as a "Dough Conditioner." So does chemicals used in drinking water. THIS is why there is an iodine epidemic in the USA - Canada & Europe have made this practice illegal.

    EDIT 3/15/12
    DO NOT TAKE IODINE WITHOUT THE REQUIRED SUPPLEMENTS

    Details here in "Iodine Introduction & References"
