What brought YOU to this site? Why don't you just go to your doctor and let him tell you how to live your life if you're so concerned about what he thinks? I'm here because CW medicine nearly killed me. I lost a 48 year old female friend to a massive heart attack. The last thing she told me is that she was going to a doctor to get her thyroid checked soon after doing some research. She'd been to doctors repeatedly describing to them (and me) that she felt like she was dying. They considered her a "malingerer" and only wanted to put her on anti-depressants. She was dead 2 days later. Medical Fact: Untreated hypothyroidism can lead to heart attacks. Because she never made it to the doctor, I can't say if it was her thyroid or not. And even if she'd made it to that appointment, I can say with some authority that she probably wouldn't have been treated properly anyway. This is way too common.

You show me a doctor with a clue, and I would be happy to go to them. Educating & self-treating myself about things that doctors SHOULD know can be exhausting and time consuming. It would be easier to just turn my body over to a doctor to make all the tough decisions for me. But nobody cares about the outcome more than I do. Reminds me of a speech I heard as a kid that was titled, "Pack Your Own Parachute." No one cares more about how perfectly a parachute is packed than the person who's going to pull the chord after jumping out of the plane.
So until I find a good reason to change my course of using Iodoral, I choose to trust the doctors such as Brownstein and others that are successfully using Iodine in their practices instead of the doctors who are slicing and burning and radiating women.
