For myself, I take 40-50 milligrams of iodine a day in the form of Lugol's solution. I do this as a member of the Hungarian orthomolecular facebook iodine group, following the rules published there, taking care to consume the cofactors properly. Our group has 46 900 members.

My health is excellent, I have no thyroid problems. I am a 56-year-old man.

Would you be able to share the details of the protocol Istvan? I'm very interested. Thank you!

Wow, that's a bit of a long list. :)

I was already taking a lot of supplements before taking iodine, so I could start taking Lugol's solution practically immediately.

I take these in the form of a multivitamin and separate supplements:

As a multivitamin:

Vitamin D (4000 IU); Vitamin A (4000 IU); Vitamin E (100 IU); Omega-3, fish oil (550-600mg); Vitamin K complex (K1+K2, 1000mcg); Vitamins B1-B2-B5-B6-B7-B9-B12, skin, Vitamin C (2 gr); Zinc (15mg); Inizitol; Iodine (225mcg); Chromium (100mcg); Magnesium (250mg); Molybdenum (100mcg); Copper (1.25mg); Selenium (120 mcg); Silicon (25mg); Taurine (200mg).

I also take these separately:

Q10+MCT oil; Choline; Collagen peptide; Taurine; Omega-3, as fish oil; Glycine; Ashwgandha; Melatonin; Rezveratol; NAC; Turmeric; Astaxanthin; Quercetin; Bromlein; Bilberry extract; Black cumin oil; Lugol's solution

In Hungary, these cost less than a pack of cigarettes a day. :)

Thank you for taking the time to share. New to me is the Bilberry extract. I'll need to research. Best wishes!

Dear Ester! My blueberry extract preparation actually contains 3 ingredients. Blueberry Extract (180mg), Cranberry Extract (180mg) and Black Rice Extract (180mg).

Basically I take it to protect my eyes, but there are so many different effects of these extracts that I'm happy to accept all the "side effects" :)

What about a simple leaf of Kombu kelp ?

It does the job perfectly.

My iodine has organic kelp in it.

Those who lack the most iodine are pregnant women and that not only impact those persons but the baby they are pregnant of and the consequences are a lot more important than what people think usually.

Adequate level of Iodine being the unavoidable " ingredient " of a fully functional thyroid and this being in charge of producing so many important hormones to regulate a lot of fundamental reactions, iodine level should be verified regularly for pregnant, and from childhood to old age for everyone.

My mother, who has been gone for 16 years, had so many problems with thyroid, hormones, etc!

With everything I know now, I bet she was deficient in so many things. I’m sure many people are.

I’m off all my meds, and have gone holistic, at 60! Exercise, sunshine, etc.

That is the right way to live .

I get so angry when people that are older get sick or deficient…that is NOT normal. But, people are brainwashed to think it is.

In nursing homes, they would simply modify the food and people would regain and maintain a lot better physical and mental health.

The simple fact consisting in the daily introduction of sauerkraut and lacto fermented organic food would rejuvenate those persons, given that no one is healthier than one's own microbiom and that the digestive tract contains more neurons than the brain and that the 2 are constantly communicating.

But the medical corps has become nothing more than the slave of BP so they " simply obey orders " from above as said some people in Nuremberg .

The same in hospital.

It would be an interesting research to be done.

At school, all along the curriculum, healthy nutrition corses should be mandatory.

Please update the link. All I get when clicking on it is then food photo and if I type it in, I get to an entertainment company.

Iodine is amazing! I can recommend some good books to read like the Iodine Crises and Healing with Iodine. There are case studies showing very high doses of Iodine shrinking breast tumours for example!

What if you've had a thyroidectomy? Is it ok to take iodine?

EMF is also disrupting iodine metabolism, as phones are usually held right next to the neck/thyroid, which regulates iodine.

Blue light and RF create inflammation, and shift pro-growth hormones to cortisol.

Coincidentally, foods rich in electrical nourishment (DHA) are also rich in iodine:

Love this post, Dr.Tess, as it seems to beautifully capture much of “The Iodine Crisis” by Lynne Farrow. We are using Lugol’s Solution 2% each day. Hubby (76 yo) reports easier voiding, only up one time to void at night(making far better sleep), & even has renewed his interest in our love life. Could fixing the too low iodine levels “fix” a lot of the need for Viagra, etc.??? Just a thought.

Thanks for all you do so very well!

Bless you! 👍👍👏👏👏👏❤️🙏

Iodine – The iodine stimulates Estrogen Receptor signaling which in turn causes an increase in Luciferase activity required for the production of Nanobots. 52 Use non-ionized forms of salt as iodine helps to convert GO to rGO.

2 to 5 Grams of iodine seems a lot , 25 milligrams is safe , once you also take 0.2 milligrams selenium.

So easy to prepare.

They should be everywhere in every society looking for healthy nutrition and not wealthy pharmacists.

Iodine is one of my top supplements, has had a hugely positive impact on my health. Everyone eating a western diet is deficient. Just try not to get it on your teeth, stains like nothing else.
