What is important is whether following their theories is better or worse than following mainstream science. For me - mostly following Dr Brownsteins recommendations seems to have done good. (But due to increased liver enzymes I've had to stop the co-factors. And I believe any good doctor would modulate his treatment based on the responses of the patient.
PS every scientist would agree upon humans needing iodine. The disagreement is about how much. I base my supplementation upon the facts that
- Japanese consumption is high -> iodine in such amounts cannot be instantly dangerous
- Breast cancer is extremely low in japan (may have a different reason, but is probably connected)
- There are several papers that points to an interaction between selenium/iodine -> I believe the need to increase selenium/iodine parallel is correct
---> I may try for a while...
