    Lumps in breast cured by iodine
    ==========================================
    Hi Everyone,

    I had a lump on my breast and recently had it checked out and got the all clear.

    This lump is completely gone now thanks to iodine. I painted diluted Iodine directly onto the lump everyday and upped my daily intake to six drops morning and night. I am now down to five drops morning and night for the smaller lumps which now feel like small bits of rice.

    I endured anemia for a long time and always tired but ever since adding iodine to my body I'm wide awake all day and evening. I can read for hours at night and no longer have red eye problems. The benefits of iodine and their companions are amazing.

    Kind Regards, - - -

    Fibrocystic Breast Disease AND MUCH MORE GONE
    ==================================
    Hi group; I have read your posts for some weeks now; I am not alone anymore! Thank you; I have learned a lot.
    I started on Iodine one year ago. Ailments; long time candida, Wilsons temperature syndrome, dry skin, FBD and so on. No doc involved; only my own research and experimental nature.
    I started slow; didnt up my dose to 50 mg until 6 months ago. Then the detox-thing kicked in; and more so when I upped my vitamin C from 1g to 6-7g (bowel toleranse)
    First noticeable change after iodine;
    Nails stopped splitting in layers, skin improved.
    Heart palpitations gone.
    Temperature went up from average 36,5C to 37 C (98,7F)!!!
    Allergy symptomes improved 70%( sneezing, sinus problems)
    FBD gone 90 % ( happened when I upped to 50 mg )
    Candida gone 90 % I can live with the rest; it is under my control now!
    Sun tolerance is 100% better; combined iodine and coconut oil is the best; no more burning for the sun-lover (I live in Norway and need it)
    I also supplement with selenium,magnesium,pink salt etc.
    Other useful supplements;
    Turmeric + enzymes; helps allergy symptoms, less sneezing + better digestion
    Borax; helps fungus related ailments / candida; combined with iodine.
    Appologies if any wrong spellings ;this is not my 1st language. I will post my experience with kids and pets on iodine later.

I'm taking more than 400mg of magnesium most days, split between magnesium citrate and the Natural Calm. I just have regular selenium right now, but will get the L-selenomethionine next. I admittedly do not take the salt every day. I don't know, it just doesn't seem to help me! But I do use the good pink Himalayan salt on all of my food.
    The only detox symptom I still seem to be getting from the iodine dose that I'm on is bloat. But then again, just about everything makes me bloat since the onset of the IC, so it could be anything. I recently started taking a few new supplements for adrenal fatigue all at once, and any one of those could be the culprit. I've stopped taking all but one of them for now to see.



    Actually, the only symptom I still have from IC now is bloat. I credit this to my healthy eating habits and antioxidant supplementation. I had ALL of the symptoms at first - feeling like I had a UTI (frequent urination, burning feeling in the bladder, but consistently negative tests for UTIs). When I researched online and figured out what it must be, I felt like my life was ending, it was beyond depressing. I went to my GP, who agreed that that was what it sounded like. I got an ultrasound and was referred to a specialist. However, prior to getting the ultrasound, I began supplementing with coconut oil (that first coconut oil quote that you posted from Google is actually mine, from many pages back in this thread!), and I found that as long as I spread the doses out throughout the day, the UTI symptoms would not come back. I did this for months, and then I experimented with taking less and less, and eventually taking none at all, and the symptoms still did not return.
    By the time I got the ultrasound and saw the specialist, he said that my bladder looked fine. I told him about the coconut oil, and he said that if it was helping me, to keep on doing it. I think that starting to take coconut oil very shortly after the appearance of the symptoms helped my bladder tremendously.
    However, the bloat has never gone. And it only showed up when the IC did. For someone who is very into healthy eating (obviously, I'm here!) and working out, this is very frustrating. Prior to the IC, I was in the best shape of my life, body fat at 14%, great muscle tone, nearly visible abs. Now no amount of healthy eating and working out changes my body or my weight, the bloat has taken over my body completely. The only help I found for it was an amphetamine prescribed to me for ADD. However, it started making my hair fall out after a few months, so I've stopped taking it, and all of the bloat came back. I feel more like myself off the drug anyway, and I realized that I was absolutely killing my adrenals anyway.

    As for the Vitamin D, I've been supplementing with 10,000 IU of D3 since last year. I got my level checked in December along with my other yearly bloodwork, and my doctor was astonished that my level was 69 ng/ml. He said it was the highest he had ever seen. Since then, I've dropped the dosage down to 5000 IU a day, and am also taking a blend of fermented cod liver oil and butter oil.

    My doctor will pretty much prescribe me anything that I ask him for, provided that I have good enough evidence to back it up. LDN does sound promising, and I've heard of naltrexone before, but before I start taking another medication, I'd like to do whatever I can naturally to try and get this under control.

    One thing that seems to be promising is cold thermogenesis. Last night I finally managed to get the water in the tub down cold enough to be in the recommended range (50s), and was able to stay in for almost 20 minutes. For a few hours afterwards, I was urinating constantly. I am noticeably less bloated today than yesterday. I think there may be some real promise there with getting my body back to the way it ought to be.
    PaleoGirl,
    My most favorite doctors, Dr. Kruse and Dr. Davis would have said that your Vitamin D3 Level of 69ng/ml would have been on the LOW SIDE of perfect. Dr. Kruse wants to see 70 to 100ng/ml and Dr. Davis wants to see 60 to 70ng/ml as being optimal.

    Your doctor was astonished because everyone else he sees are severely deficient and you were at optimal! I suggest following Dr. Kruse or Dr. Davis guidelines.

    Since I have started on 10,000 IU Daily, my annual nasty chest colds are history. Now I can go an entire winter with no colds at all. If I feel a cold coming on, I boost my Vitamin D3 to 20,000 IU daily for a week, and the cold is averted. Also no flu. When I used to get a chest cold, it hung on for MONTHS. It sometimes got so bad that I even lost my voice !

    Gems from the Internet:

    Fibrocystic Breast Disease CURED
    ==========================

    A subject I take very seriously. Two years ago, I was well on my way to Breast Cancer . I'd had FBD for a long time, and FBD is very much a precursor to breast cancer. BTW, some 90% of American women have FBD, NOW. It manifests as lumps and/or breast tenderness, can be cyclical(with the menstrual period), in advanced stages one can have pain throughout the month.

    So, I discovered Iodine supplementation. The results have been amazing. I lost a full cup size of painful, swollen tissue. The texture of my breasts completely changed, they have become very soft. I'm 95% done, I don't know if the last remaining area is scar tissue, or not. I haven't been diligent about supplementing for a while now, I've gotten complacent and cocky. So, I need to get back on board with this.

    Nice that I can get complacent, huh? 1 in 7 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm sure that I will not. I have experienced iodine and companion nutrients dissolving fibrous tissue.

    Too bad I didn't know about this 5 years ago, when my sister-in-law died of breast cancer. She left 5 children behind.

    Iodine's efficacy in treating FBD is well-documented. Iodine has been used in research on various breast cancer cell lines as well, with success.

    Iodine Docs are treating breast cancer patients with iodine, there are no reports yet as far as outcome, this is still all pretty new. I have no doubt that there will be success.

    Will it become a mainstream treatment though? I don't know. There is a lot of money to be made from cancer, and breast cancer is no exception. Lots more money to be made with chemo drugs. Symbollon corporation actually tried to bring an iodine-based drug to market a while back. Their testing was unsuccessful, though. The FDA would only allow them to test at a very low dosage.

    One thing is constant in all of the research re:iodine & the breast. The breasts need I2, aka ioDINE aka molecular iodine aka elemental iodine.

    The MOST ioDINE that you can get per dose is contained in Lugol's solution. Iodoral IS lugol's in tablet form.
    Iodine and the breast. at Iodine Supplementation Support by VWT Team (MessageID: 1339236)
    PS) She failed to mention all the wasted time & money on MAMMOGRAMS. Just imagine all the terrified women with fibrocystic breasts and their painful swollen breasts being squeezed between plates, praying for no cancer. Is this a cruel RACKET or what?

    I agree with Grizz on the Vit D. Mine was in the low 30's, taking 10K/day I got it up to 119. I went back down to 5K, thinking that would keep it around 100, but it dropped to 68 when I tested next. I went back on 10K to get it back up to 100. Then I will do 8K as maintenance. Hopefully that will be just right.

    Dr. Kruse has a new blog today where he mentions the urinating after CT:
    "In the case of diabetes, high blood glucose levels allows a person to deal better with extreme cold because it lowers the freezing point of blood! It is natural antifreeze that allows life to exist in the cold...Ice wine does not freeze either at 32 degrees because of the sugar content of the wine hence its name. Alcohol, like sugar is a natural antifreeze. The higher the sugar content content in liquid the lower the freezing point is...To make Ice wine in late harvest around frost time, a grape begins to protect itself by rapidly reducing its water content and by raising its sugar content. It tries to eliminate water when it gets cold. Now maybe you understand why you have the urge to urinate when you begin to use cold thermogenesis? You transiently are dumping water and raising your blood glucose levels just like a grape. But what happens in you is with longer adaptation you BG level drop as your fat mass shrinks. You eventually lose all your glucose stores and eventually just burn fat to survive. Humans have this ability as we evolved…"

And of course I'll continue to take the companion iodine supplements. But anything I can do naturally to improve my health is worth it to me. And I think that really does fit in with the primal spirit and lifestyle more than supplementation as well.
    Yes, it is unnatural to take so many supplements, but we are not living in a natural world any longer. We are trying to right the wrongs that modern life has done to us. Primal or paleo eating is not enough sometimes. I've got a ton of supplements that I take too. I don't know if they are all working, but I know some are. I've been able to stop my daily asthma inhaler, correct bad liver enzyme levels, get my thyroid working again. All of the things out of whack with us are not just an inconvenience, they can lead to serious disease later in life if we don't try to correct them now.

    On Vitamin D3 Dosage, the rule of thumb is to adjust the dosage by 1,000 IU Daily to change the ng/ml by 10. So to drop your blood reading by 20 then reduce your dosage by 2,000 IU.

    Owl,
    that was a fascinating story on CT.

    Hi, I wrote a while ago about my high blood pressure, and now due to the elevation of it, have had to go back on medication. I was taking Lugol's Iodine, but the medication I take has specified not to take any potassium. Therefore I will have to change to taking Iosol instead? I have read that this is not a great option. Any suggestions?

    Grizz, it's equal parts coconut oil and baking soda. Just mix them together until they are well incorporated. I'm currently keeping mine in a small gladware type of container. It does actually taste a little bit salty at first, but I've gotten used to it, and I think that my teeth actually look lighter now (people who do oil pulling with coconut oil have reported that as well). One thing that helps is to rinse with warm water - it helps the coconut oil go cleanly down the sink!

    I will take your advice, Grizz and Owl, and go back to taking 10,000 IU/day. I definitely don't want to drop my reading yet!!

    I also have not gotten any kind of cold or flu for a few years now. At least not a full blown one. The handful of times that I have felt something coming on, I hit the grapefruit seed extract. 15 drops 3 times a day will knock out pretty much anything! I tend to up the coconut oil as well. Now I know that increasing Vitamin D will help as well!

    Thanks for that, Owl. I have been catching up on all of Dr. Kruse's older CT posts (and reading all of the comments!), that I haven't been able to keep up on his current postings. That is very timely and lets me know that I was feeling what I should from the CT! I certainly wasn't getting that result when I was CTing in my 80° tap water! It wasn't easy hanging out in a 55° tub, but hopefully it will become less difficult, especially knowing that it might have the ability to help me heal from so many things.

    Thanks, that makes me feel a bit better about all of the pills that I swallow morning and night (and some throughout the day as well). I have tried to eliminate anything that I thought wasn't working for me. If I ran out of something that I wasn't sure about, I would just stop taking it for awhile, and if I didn't notice any difference, then I cut it out of my regimen.

    ChilliSquid, from all that I have read, either Lugol's or Idoral are the only types of iodine that should be used. I used to be on medication for high blood pressure, but once I started supplementing with coconut oil, I was able to stop taking it. I would suggest giving that a shot before changing from Lugol's. Start with 1 tbsp a day, then work your way up to 3, as you need it based on your bp readings. There are many ways to get it into your diet - cook with it, put it into a smoothie, melt it into coffee or tea, or if you don't have time for any of those things, just eat it (I have a hard time doing this though!).
    Since being on the paleo diet, I no longer have to supplement with coconut oil in order to keep my bp reading in a healthy range. I do still cook with it all the time though, and if I'm low on calories and don't have time to eat something proper at work, I'll melt a scoop into tea or coffee.
