Iodine

https://www.dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
First discovered in kelp, Iodine is a very important mineral that dates back to 1812. It was extracted and named "iodine" because of its violet color. The term "ion" is the Greek word for violet.


Benefits

A naturally occurring substance, Iodine is a crucial part of the thyroid hormones that monitor the body's energy levels. Iodine is actually food because it nourishes the thyroid gland.

Iodine, though essential, is only needed in trace amounts.

Organic Iodine, Iodine Phosphate, has the following benefits:
  • Normalizes and regulates metabolism.
  • Relieves pain of Fibrocystic breasts.
  • Protects against toxic effects from radioactive materials.
  • Acts as a natural antiseptic.
  • Helps metabolize excess fat.
  • Aids physical and mental development.
  • Supports the thyroid gland
Deficiency

Iodine deficiency symptoms include:
  • Goiter
  • Hypothyroidism- chronic fatigue, apathy, dry skin, intolerance to cold, weight gain, and thyroid enlargement.
  • Weight fluctuations, especially weight gain.
  • Swollen salivary glands.
  • Breast cancer for women.
  • Mental retardation for children
Pregnancy

In pregnant women, Iodine deficiency could result in the child being born affected by dwarfism, also known as neonatal hypothyroidism. It is imperative that pregnant women take adequate amounts of organic Iodine.

It is reported that one out of fifty pregnant women is diagnosed with hypothyroidism during pregnancy. Also, six out of every one hundred miscarriages are associated with thyroid hormone deficiency during pregnancy.


Synthetic Iodine

While Iodine is found as a natural source in seaweed, most table salt is fortified with synthetic Iodine. Just like white table salt, synthetic Iodine is an inorganic substance and cannot be properly digested or absorbed by the body. This can create serious health problems because it is so unnatural. This can be prevented with organic nutrition to ensure optimal health and well-being.

Synthetic Iodine should be avoided at all costs. High does of inorganic Iodine may aggravate acne and interfere with hormone activity. Many pharmaceutical varieties of Iodine contain radioactive tracers that travel to the thyroid gland and harm the organ.

Western medical pharmacists know these drugs with radioactive tracers are harmful. They emit radiation and cause radiation poisoning. Pharmacists often prescribe Potassium Iodide to offset the effect of the radioactive tracers in certain thyroid drugs.

More than 12 million Americans suffer with Thyroid Disease. However, most of these 12 million individuals aren't aware that they have the disease.

Synthroid

Many people with thyroid disorders have been prescribed Synthroid. Synthroid cannot successfully help the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is mainly comprised of Iodine and thus requires Iodine to repair it when damaged by disease.


Healthy Alternatives

Natural food sources of Iodine include:
  • Garlic
  • Asparagus
  • Lima beans
  • Mushrooms
  • Sesame seeds
  • Spinach
  • Turnip greens
  • Swiss chard
  • Summer squash
  • Soybeans
Herbs containing Iodine include:
  • Irish Moss
  • Iceland Moss
  • Blue-Green Algae
  • Bladderwrack
  • Dulse
  • Kelp
  • Red Marine Algae
  • Chlorella
  • Spirulina
  • White Oat Bark
  • Red Raspberry Leaf
  • Black Walnut Hulls
Natural sources of Iodine from Seaweed are the richest sources and are helpful in increasing and enhancing the production and secretion of breast milk for women.

    Q: What is the difference between the Iodine Phosphate Formula and Thyroid Formula?

    A:

    Iodine Phosphate is derived of 100% seaweed, and is a concentrated source of dietary Iodine. Thyroid Formula also contains sea weeds but also contains a few land-based plants, i.e. White Oak Bark and Black walnut Hulls. Iodine Phosphate formula provides chiefly iodine whereas Thyroid Formula also provides iodine but also has herbs that have an affinity for the Thyroid Gland. Iodine Phosphate is more "nutritional" in nature and Thyroid Formula is more "therapeutic" in nature.
    This is the different between the two formulas.

    Q: I have a situation. I am allergic to shrimp (yes insects of the sea), and even though I don't eat them. I was told that this is due to the high amount of iodide in shrimp, etc. At one point I was told that I have an over active Thyroid as well. My question to you is, if one needs Iodide to balance out an overactive thyroid but they are allergic to Iodide how can this be solved without causing discomfort?

    A:

    Natural iodine will not cause a problem with human health, only man-made (unnatural) pharmaceutical iodine. The Matrix has really confused us, beloved. Let us turn back to Nature!

    Any thyroid condition can be fixed with natural iodine (Iodine Phosphate) which we sell at Dherbs!

    Q: A little more than a year ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism). I had the radioactive iodine treatment to stop my thyroid from functioning (extreme hypothyroidism). Now I take Synthroid daily. Recently I was diagnosed with Genital Herpes (HVS 2). I am interested in doing the Full Body Cleanse followed immediately by the Anti-Viral Cleanse. I do not wish to be on the prescriptions for my thyroid condition or the Herpes outbreaks. What options do I have for thyroid hormone if my thyroid doesn't work and I stop taking the Synthroid? Also, is there a way to reverse what the radioactive iodine treatment has done to my thyroid?

    A:

    First perform the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Anti-Viral Cleanse. You would also benefit from The Female Cleanse and the 10 Day Candida Cleanse. Try our Thyroid Aid formula it contains Irish Moss and Kelp, which are naturally high in iodine. Iodine is beneficial for cleansing, toning, rejuvenating, nourishing, maintaining, and strengthening the Thyroid Gland. An impaired Thyroid gland can lead to a host of negative health problems.

    Q: I suffer from low thyroid production and take a thyroid replacement (synthroid) I have been told that internal detox would flush this from my system, and not to do it. How would your product effect my medication?

    A:

    You would do well to read our "Thyroid" article on our site under "Articles" to get properly educated.

    Doctors don't heal! They push unnecessary drugs (all of which are harmful) and surgeries. What doctor has promised you healing or a cure for your thyroid condition? NONE and they never will! The human body can heal itself if you supply it with the necessary tools and building blocks and start thinking rightly. And this is what herbs can help you to do!

    The Full Body Cleanse will greatly help you improve the overall function of your body. Also, Thyroid Aid can contribute to optimal functionality of your thyroid gland.

    Q: I have thyroid problems. I am extremely cold sensitive. I spend the majority of the year cold. My hair is thinning. I would like a supplement instead of medication. Real Life health food store told me to take Kelp. I don't know if I have given it enough time. What do you recommend?

    A:

    Please read our "THYROID GLAND" article" in our article section. Herbally, I recommend our THYROID FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, and IODINE PHOSPHATE Formula. Kelp is a seaweed and all seaweeds are good for thyroid problems.
