Iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient. After 17 years of practicing medicine, I can say that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health if you do not have adequate iodine levels. I have yet to see any item that is more important to promoting health or optimizing the function of the immune system than iodine. Learn what forms of iodine you need and why there is not enough iodine in salt. See how iodine can help: breast cancer, fibrocystic breast disease, detoxification, fatigue, Graves' disease, and Hashimoto's disease. Find out why iodine deficiency may be the root cause of thyroid problems including hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer. Discover how to get iodine in your diet and improve your immune system.

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.
As far as my husband is concerned, he has hypothyroidism as well and he has noticed considerable improvement in energy, muscle strength, attitude, and the puffiness is starting to leave his face, his joint pain has also improved to the degree that it has almost completely dissipated, and keep in mind this is only ONE WEEK on the Iodoral.
As for my own improvements, my former level of energy has returned, joint pain from several injuries has lessened considerably, I no longer have a number of cravings that used to plague me and the list goes one.
It is clear, once again, that the FDA, Big Pharma, the food industry and the AMA are doing their best to get us fat, break us down and keep us sick. Everywhere we turn, essentials to our quality of life are being depleted or destroyed and we wonder why our health care costs are out of control. If one is diligent to read, research and study the findings in Dr. Brownstein's book, you will be amazed and committed to using the information the quality of your life.
This book and Iodoral, which you can also find on Amazon, have been miraculous in our lives.
I've made lifestyle and eating changes (for the better, i hope) and I did the 24-iodine upload and was deficient. Keep in mind the idoine taste horrific...I add it to my coffee/tea/juice to mask the taste. You can take iodoral instead via tablet (which I bought and haven't used yet). I think people close to me see the changes. The best part is becoming mentally alert again. I felt so incompetent and frustrated when I couldn't remember thing or missed the simpliest thing at work I never missed before. I highly suggest it. As with anything you should tell your physician what you're taking/doing. And the high dosage recommended in the book and repeated NUMEROUS TIMES is NOT TO BE USED LONG TERM! That is the key, the 100mg of iodine is for THREE months ONLY, the purpose is to flood your system and kick out all the toxic halides in the cell receptors. You will have some side effects if you don't do the recommended two week prep before taking the iodine. I didn't do the prep and reduced the dosage to half and then after the symptoms went away I upped it back to the 100mg and will reduce when the three months is up. Those are the key things to remember. Hope this review helps. =)
I knew long before seeing my 23andme genetic results, that I needed iodine. The years of diuretics after chemo, along with the very low salt diet I was told to be on, was ruining my kidneys (function was down at least 25%), and making my adrenals worse. His Iodine Protocol (and the iodine yahoo list) has been a huge part of my healing from the decimation of my body after chemo and radiation.
My kidneys now function fine, my skin got softer and softer with use, and my sinuses are no longer dry.
His book is sensible, logical and life-saving.
I have since read more of Dr. Brownstiens' books. They are just as informative and have also helped me tremendously.
