I read The Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow yesterday and was so impressed, I can barely put it into words. I’m absolutely convinced my wife and I are iodine deficient. This is a book every woman who doesn’t want to get breast cancer or a mastectomy should read and probably every man with chronic health issues.
In the book, you will read about many people who solved their chronic health problems with 50 mg a day of iodine. I was supplementing with one drop of liquid potassium iodide containing 75 mcg a day. The dropper bottle I have contains 480 drops — so I would need to drink about 1.5 of these bottles a day to get that 50 mg.
I actually did drink half a bottle yesterday (17mg) and half a bottle today and Amazon will deliver Iodoral and Lugol’s next week so that I can continue my titration starting lower.
For those readers curious about what Andy Cutler says about iodine, here’s an excerpt from this post where Andy response to the statement “The fact that Andy doesn’t mention iodine doesn’t mean that it is not useful supplement”:
Correct. I did NOT write a bible. I wrote a book. What Hazel says above is the generally received wisdom in the alternative medicine community what iodine does. Most of it appears to be accurate.
Thanks to Tara and Viking Ex-Pat at MercOver for bringing this valuable book to my attention. The iodine story reminds me a lot of the story told by Dr. Klenner’s work in Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C and the singular Safe Uses of Cortisol by William Jeffries. All three tell the story of essential tools that MDs have forgotten how to use because there’s no money in promoting or prescribing them.
