My husband, daughter and myself, all used liquid iodine and did the paint test to see if we were deficient, which we all were. Based upon a significant amount of research we decided to take a specific amount, starting last Monday, June 14. What has happened is NOTHING less that a miracle.
My daughter, who has hideous outbreaks of hives, had no hives during the first three days, had two outbreaks on the 3rd day, but they were noticeably small and did not last near as long. Secondly, she has so much more energy and is able to get through the day without an afternoon nap, whereas before this iodine, the fatigue drove her to nap every afternoon. Thirdly, her voice, which had been very hoarse since before she was diagnosed has cleared and her attitude is much more positive now. These are just of the improvements we have seen in her, but they are remarkable when you understand her long journey and the insane number of doctors she has been through. For the first time in 10 years, I am getting my daughter back.Read more ›
Brownstein says we are in the "Medical Dark Ages" concerning iodine supplementation, and his book attempts to invoke a Renaissance. David Bronstein MD has a clinical practice in the goiter belt of Michigan, and is involved with an ongoing iodine research project with Guy Abraham MD and George Flechas MD.
According to Brownstein, iodine is safe and beneficial, preventing not only goiter, but also preventing the many thyroid cysts, nodules and auto-immune thyroid disease rampant in the population. Iodine is anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, anti-cancer, important for hormone production, reverses fibrocystic breast disease, and shrinks ovarian and thyroid cysts. It may be our most important preventive measure against breast cancer.
The book dispels a number of myths about Iodine supplementation.
Myth number one: There is no iodine deficiency because of Iodized Salt.
The iodine in Iodized salt is not very bio-available, and government surveys show decreasing Iodine levels in the population. Brownstein found that 90% of his patients were iodine deficient based on a 24 urine test for excreted iodine after a 50 mg loading dose.
Myth Number two: Too much Iodine above the RDA of 150 mcg is not safe.
In reality Iodine supplementation is very safe. The average Japanese diet contains 12 mg per day which is 100 times the RDA in the US. In the event of a nuclear power plant accident, the government gives everyone 50 mg. of Iodine to prevent thyroid cancer.Read more ›
Dr. Brownstein, you come out with a new edition every year so please in the 5th edition include one page that lists each supplement and the amount to take at the correct time of day. Thank you!
In this book, David Brownstein, M.D. summarizes his work with Dr. Guy Abraham, bringing to light old and new information and truth about iodine, an extremely important mineral - the most misunderstood mineral. Proper use of iodine may cure most thyroid problems, and beyond that, may be a preventative and cure for every disorder of breast tissue, reversing precancerous changes. The same may be true in other tissues which concentrate iodine, such as overies and the prostate.
This book is little in size, but big in content. It opened worlds for me as a clinician.
