Lugol’s Iodine Product statement:
Lugol's taken internally in addition to replenishing the thyroid, also brings amazing relief and a calming, soothing, peaceful state to anxiety and a manic stage. It destroys vicious stomach bacteria, (especially salmonella), against gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn. Doomed are harmful bacteria and parasite eggs. It is 100% safe (except if allergic) to take regularly, but only use as needed. Lugol's iodine is old-fashioned iodine and years ago was used for treating various illnesses. It has a distinctive trait - it hangs up on everything. In the stomach, it attaches to vicious salmonella, bacteria, parasite eggs and they are doomed. The thyroid is the organ most capable of absorbing iodine. Pathogenic microorganisms, the primary cause of disease, are made weaker and most are killed as they pass through the thyroid, provided, it has its normal supply of iodine. Clinical studies show that very few people have enough iodine in their thyroid to function optimally. This deficiency has occurred in the 20th century because of chlorine in drinking water, the alteration of natural food sources and modern farming practices. Aggravating the problem is that the body does not conserve iodine, therefore, we must get a regular supplemental intake to maintain optimal health. The role of the thyroid gland has been understood for some time now. Although conventional medicine places emphasis on its contribution to regulating the body's metabolism, and equally important role is its contribution to the immunological health and body. You would get 3.125 mg of iodine out of a vertical drop and 6.25 mg out of a horizontal drop (that’s 2.5 mg iodine, 3.75 mg potassium iodide). In a 2 oz. bottle you would get roughly 250 drops. The solution will go right to the bloodstream by passing the digestion process also liquid is more controlled and you can get more uses out of it. You can apply it to the skin or take it orally.
Now how about a few quick testimonials found online:
I bought one bottle of this and used it for several months... just 2 drops a day. Next trip to the doctor he lowered the strength of my thyroid pills... (after 5 yrs on the same strength) If I increase the Lugols maybe I can get off the pills altogether. I just decided to take it slow to make sure I don't get too much.To those who complain about the taste... NOOOO don't take it by itself. You can put a few drops in almost any drink, even water, and you won't taste it. I usually take mine with my morning coffee. As a side benefit, did you know that iodine can be used to make dirty water safe for drinking?
searched hypothyroidism on the web,
and one of the things that popped up was iodine. I read the various articles
about it, and decided to order it. I decided to take 5 drops (12.5 mg) each day
and see if I noticed any effects. I experienced much more energy and alertness
immediately after starting. But the real surprise for me was the vast
improvement of some skin conditions I've had for many years that my
dermatologist prescribed medication for, but could only slow the progression.
The itching stopped immediately, and the patches of thick and callused skin on
one of my palms started showing improvement, as did the eczema patch on one knee.
It's been three weeks now, and the eczema patch on my knee, which had grown to over 5 inches in diameter, is now less than 2 inches. It has changed from a maroon color to a normal skin color, and is still shrinking each day. The problem on my hand also appears to be heading toward full resolution.
I'm dumbfounded! How could my doctors overlook something as simple as a nutritional deficiency? I've worried about this condition and spent considerable money over the years trying to control it since I was told that was the best I could hope for. Something is terribly wrong with western medicine for something like this to occur.
Update: For the last 15 years I've had four toenails that looked terrible due to toenail fungus. Over a year later, you can see in the nails where I began taking the iodine; new growth looks healthy and normal. At the present growth rate, the bad part of the nails should be totally gone within a few months. Iodine reduces CANDIDA & FUNGUS!
I have had symptoms of low thyroid most of my life but the lab tests were always within "normal" limits, so I was never treated to relieve the symptoms. I have been taking Lugol’s iodine- 2-3 drops 5-6 days a week for several months. My energy is up, my skin is clearer, and I am able to keep the 35 lb weight loss without counting every calorie.
I have a number of hypo symptoms but am not interested in going on conventional medicine. Having taken Lugol's for about two weeks I find my low basal body temperature has gone up from mid-96s to 98.6 (what a cliche!) Also, the ice-cold feet I bothered my husband with at night have normalized. I also find that insomnia that was keeping me up until four a.m. or later has abated, now I'm getting tired around ten p.m. Just know that iodine requires self-education. There are studies suggesting it can harm you, and studies suggesting that most of us are being harmed by iodine deficiency (women in particular).
What about nuclear radiation protection? What about OD Concerns?
With the Japan tsunami mess still fresh in memory, and knowledge that the west Michigan lake shore nuclear reactor is one of the oldest in the region and has been repeatedly closed for safety concerns, and with nuclear weapons a regular topic in foreign news, should we think about some simple, cheap, easy precautions? Maybe. If it costs $8 per family member – is it cheap peace of mind? And maybe makes some health improvements too? Is it money well spent? Maybe.
Are there concerns and is research available? YES!
Concerns are typically expressed by medical doctors without sufficient knowledge of iodine. But there are doctors who are very well researched in this area. One of which is Dr David Brownstein, MD. He has done extensive research and has lots of case history study to back up his statements.
He says in his book that 80 to 90% of Americans are significantly deficient in iodine, and that the supplementation in salt is woefully inadequate and that many health conditions can be improved or corrected with the addition of iodine in the diet. Specifically Lugol’s iodine (a specific solution that includes Iodine and potassium Iodide to improve absorbency and effectiveness). He suggests lab style urine tests to determine and adjust dosage, but other researchers suggest a simple skin test that can be done at home by anyone is easy and sufficient.
Simply put some on you skin, and allow it to soak in (5-10 min) then see how long the amber stain on your skin lasts. It should last 24 hours, but most find that it is gone in less. You are deficient.
(A very common symptom in Michigan, which is known to be part of “the goiter belt region”)
Pills are also available in Lugol’s solution, but the liquid form allows you the flexibility of oral or topical use, and use on anyone – even those who don’t easily swallow pills. And this Lugol’s is sooo much cheaper than the pills!
So, want to try it? Want some today? You can try to find in at your local pharmacy. It used to be common to find iodine tincture which is not Lugols and therefore not for oral consumption and likely less absorbable, but still usable.
But after trying several pharmacies and asking pharmacists, I came home zero results! That’s right, that tincture that used to be common for a first aid kit has been replaced with Neosporin and Benadryl (both drugs with toxicities.) and the trace element so vital to your glandular system function is missing from the shelf!
This bulk buy is the result of a search for better options.
