The Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow, A Book Review by Jeffrey Dach MD

If you are a woman diagnosed fibrocystic breast disease or with breast cancer, you need to read this book. If you are a woman who undergoes repeated breast procedures such as breast cyst aspirations or repeated biopsies of breast nodules, then you need to read this book. If you are a breast cancer survivor, then you need to read this book.

As an interventional radiologist for 30 years, my job was to read the mammograms and perform the procedures, the breast biopsies and needle aspirations. Some women had multiple cysts and nodules and returned to the department every year for repeat aspirations and biopsy procedures. After their procedure, these women would ask me, "Doctor, what can I do to make these cysts and nodules in my breast go away"? And for 30 years I would throw up my hands and say "We just don't know".

After I retired from radiology and returned to clinical medicine in 2004, I attended medical meetings and there was David Brownstein MD and George Flechas MD addressing the doctor audience about the Iodine project and the health benefits of Iodine supplementation. Iodine is the answer to fibrocystic breast disease. Iodine is the answer for breast cancer prevention. Iodine is the answer I should have been giving to all the women over the years I worked in the hospital X-ray department, but didn't. So I am making up for it now. We routinely test for Iodine level, and give Iodine supplements to every woman in my clinic.

Lynne Farrow is a gifted writer and her book chronicles in exquisite detail her personal story and discovery of Iodine, and her journey as an Iodine advocate.

Lynne describes how Iodine Deficiency is a world wide epidemic that contributes to the following diseases and their cures:
* Fibrocystic Breast Disease & related cancers
* Polycistic Ovary Syndrome & related cancers
* Uterus fibroids, cysts, endometriosis & related cancers
* Thyroid problems
* Brain Fog, felling stupid
* Headaches
* Prostate problems
* Hormonal imbalance
Her testimonials detail many other conditions caused by, and cured by iodine,
She presents a fascinating history of iodine to cure health problems going back 15,000 years. Her book is fun to read. She details how her own life was wrecked by iodine deficiency, including fibrocystic breast disease with resulting breast cancer, hypothyroid, brain fog, feeling FAT & stupid and more, all cleared up after starting the Dr. Brownstein Iodine Protocol. She details many doctor's research into iodine and who stole iodine from us. This book is a MUST HAVE for every family and especially important for the women in your life, since women need far more iodine than men do for their female organs.

THUMBS UP for this amazing book!
I purchased a copy for my family & friends.

Format: Kindle Edition
David Brownstein, author of books on iodine, on the thyroid, on hormones, arthritis, the benefits of salt, and much more (I have several), supplied the foreword to this book, so I took it for granted it was informative and useful, which it is. The author, a journalist, after a number of years of fatigue and many other health issues, had breast cancer. She was not satisfied with the doctors' treatment plans as they seemed unable to explain why their recommendations were the best option for her (they gave answers such as: radiation therapy must increase survival because we do it at our hospital!). She researched in deadly earnest (well, her life was at stake, after all) and came across the link to iodine deficiency, although there has been a virtual moratorium on iodine research for the last half-century.

Unfortunately, most doctors have no knowledge about iodine therapy, believing it to be dangerous. (Iodine started to be condemned in 1948 (bet they were bigpharma patsies) although that research was contradicted by all previous research, with evidence that iodine has been used in some form or other for at least 15,000 years.) In the 1970s iodine in bread was replaced by bromide/bromine, an environmental hazard which displaces iodine in the body. Based on 2 unverified papers, doctors have been told for generations that iodine shuts down the thyroid gland. (But there's nothing to see folks, there's no conspiracy here, move along.) Yet life itself is not possible without adequate iodine levels, which Brownstein says have declined over 50 per cent in the last 40 years - and iodized salt is almost useless.

For the author, iodine (NOT as tincture of iodine, but as lugol's) brought many positive health benefits.

This book gives really good information, albeit INCOMPLETE info. Lynne Farrow does an excellent job of presenting the material in an accessible way.
Iodine supplementation is nothing to play with and its use requires serious research.
Other supplements are mandatory in combination with iodine and without those supplements, one may not get optimal results.
There is also a detox (Herxheimer reaction) that occurs as the bromides and other toxins are displaced by Iodine.
This detoxification can make one feel worse than one did in the first place.
The Iodine Crisis does not give enough information on detoxing, what it looks/feels like, and how to cope with it. This information is crucial since without it, people may give up the treatment in the mistaken belief that their health is getting worse.
Readers should do their due diligence and study many sources before deciding to supplement with Iodine.
This book is a good but incomplete addition to my own research regarding Iodine supplementation.
