A Case for Iodine Supplementation

Iodine bannerIodine is an essential micro-nutrient. This means every single cell of every single person needs it. Evolutionary biologists reckon that seafood consumption, and thus iodine absorption, played an important role in human brain development and evolution. Iodine also has excellent antibacterial, anticancer, antiparasitic, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

Unfortunately, iodine deficiency in the general population is of pandemic proportions in our modern world due to iodine’s displacement in our bodies by environmental toxins such as bromide, pesticides, and food additives. Modern farming techniques have also led to deficiencies of iodine and other minerals in the soil. Thus, crops grown in iodine-deficient soil are deficient in iodine.

Certain diets and lifestyles can also predispose a person to develop iodine deficiency. Those who eat a lot of bakery products (breads, pasta, etc), which contain high amounts of bromide, are at risk. So are vegetarians and those who don’t like sea food, sea vegetables or salt.

According to Dr. Brownstein, author of Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It, about one-third of the global populations live in a region of iodine deficiency. He and other iodine researchers have tested thousands of people, and found consistent results: approximately 96% of patients test low for iodine. The World Health Organization has recognized that iodine deficiency is the world’s greatest single cause of preventable mental retardation. Iodine deficiency has been identified as a significant public health problem in 129 countries and up to 72% of the world’s population is affected by an iodine deficiency disorder.

‌Iodine was added to salt in the U.S. to help prevent goiter. But as we now know, the amounts added do little to prevent or offset many other forms of disease.
The following illnesses are related to iodine deficiency:
breast cancer
thyroid cancer
ovarian cancer
uterus cancer
prostate cancer
autoimmune thyroid illnesses
fibrocystic breast disease
chronic fatigue
What’s more, iodine has been used to treat the following conditions:
breast diseases

type 2 diabetes
eye problems
multiple sclerosis
small intestine bacterial overgrowth
Etc, etc!!!

It is known that radioactive iodine, used in many medical procedures, will further exacerbate an iodine deficiency problem. Also, exposure to many chemicals that inhibit iodine binding in the body (e.g., bromide, fluoride, chloride) further worsens the problem. Many countries still fluoridate their water despite evidence of its health hazards. What’s worse is that fluoride is even more toxic when there is an iodine deficiency.

Yes, this is the stuff they put in our drinking water.
The good news is that iodine supplementation in the proper amounts increases urinary excretion of heavy metals such as lead and mercury, and has a detoxifying effect by increasing excretion of fluoride, bromide and chloride derivatives. This is very important since bromine, fluoride, and chloride are toxic halides, which compete with each other for absorption and receptor-binding in the body.

Perchlorate – a chlorine compound – damages the iodine transport system in our bodies. It may cause cancer and weakening of the immune system, even at low levels. Perchlorate is used in countless industrial products – from everyday applications like car air bags and leather tanning to rocket fuel.

Bromine intoxication is associated with delirium, psychomotor retardation, schizophrenia and hallucinations. People who ingest bromine feel dull and apathetic and have difficulty concentrating. Bromide can also cause severe depression, headaches and irritability. These symptoms can be present even with low levels of bromine in the diet.

Dr. Brownstein explains how bromine interferes with iodine utilization in the thyroid, and anywhere else iodine concentrates in the body. Due to their interference with iodine-binding in the body, bromine and fluoride are known as “goitrogens” – they promote the formation of goiter. Bromine and fluoride are toxic substances with no therapeutic use in our bodies. Bromine, a known carcinogen, can also bind to iodine receptors in the breast. Women with breast cancer have much larger amounts of the toxic halides bromine and fluoride compared to women without breast cancer. On the other hand, iodine has anti-carcinogenic properties.

Women’s breasts are major sites for iodine storage. Maintaining adequate iodine levels are necessary to ensure an adequately functioning thyroid gland and normal breast architecture, as well as maintaining normal structure in all glands throughout the body.


Iodine therapy does not cause hyperthyroidism for anyone who may
be concerned.

What Causes Autoimmune Disease?

TAutoImmune desease 1here are two main factors behind every autoimmune disease. First, there is something foreign in the body that the immune system is reacting to. Second, there is poor control of the reaction. Let’s break apart these two concepts.

Your immune system reacts to everything that comes into contact with your body. It reacts to everything you eat, everything you breathe, and everything that contacts your skin. It even reacts to the parts of your own body like your cells, muscles, and skin. This happens every second of your life. But here’s the key: In order for this system to work properly, there has to be a way to control this reaction.

AutoImmune desease -Affected body partsYour body controls the reaction two ways. First, it has to direct the reaction to the right thing. In other words, if your immune system is reacting to something you just ate, like wheat, it has to direct that reaction to wheat molecules. If it mistakenly directs the reaction to your muscles, you will have problems with your muscles every time you eat wheat.

Second, it has to limit the immune reaction to what is appropriate. For example, if you come into contact with a small amount of a harmless virus, it should trigger a small reaction. If it overreacts to a harmless virus, the overreaction will create problems.

Likewise, if you come into contact with a dangerous virus, it has to react strongly. Otherwise you could die from the virus. Everything has to be just right. The immune system must properly direct and properly control its reactions. And here’s my point:

When these controls are not working properly, the result can be an autoimmune disease. So if you want to cure an autoimmune disease, you have to address both of those factors.

There’s always a culprit that causes your immune system to go haywire. Sometimes the culprit is a food. (You may have heard alternative doctors talk about how offending foods can cause “leaky gut” that can lead to autoimmune disorders. Sometimes the culprit is a toxic chemical.)

But in the vast majority of the cases, the culprit is not a food or chemical but a microbe. Sometimes the microbe is obvious. Like when a strep infection causes the autoimmune disease called rheumatic fever. But most of the time it’s hard to be sure which microbe is responsible.

One thing is for sure, though. Whatever the microbe is, it will likely be hiding in one of three places. Those three places are the intestines, the sinuses, and the teeth. Ninety percent of all autoimmune diseases are caused by infections in these three areas. That means that when you treat those areas, you eliminate the trigger that’s causing the disease!

The next step toward curing your autoimmune disease is to remove the factors that might be causing your immune system to overreact. These factors include hormone imbalances, heavy metal toxicity, and adrenal problems caused by chronic stress. To wipe out autoimmune-causing viruses there are a number of natural approaches, such as,ACS 200 nano silver, oxygen/ozone, probiotic and homeopathic therapies.

Benefits of CBD Oil and Powder

banner Abount CBDDue to its many significant potential benefits, Cannabis and its constituents have been at the forefront of one of the most exciting scientific developments in recent years. Research on the effects of cannabinoids led scientists to the discovery of a previously unknown biochemical communication system in the human body, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system has been shown to play a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experiences. Endocannabinoid receptors in the brain respond pharmacologically to Cannabis constituents. The discovery of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in humans that bind to these receptors led to the investigation of Cannabis compounds for their role as an emerging strategy in the modulation of a variety of conditions.


Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1 in 1990 and CB2 in 1993. These receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues of the immune system. Evidence suggests that endocannabinoids may function as both neuromodulators and immunomodulators in the immune system.


Generally speaking, CB1 signaling mediates neuromodulatory activities, and CB2 signaling mostly mediates immunomodulatory activities. Thus, cannabinoid signaling has been shown to be involved in multiple physiologic and homeostatic systems as well as in pathophysiologic mechanisms.



I’m the proud owner of these twoThe use of Cannabis for pain dates back thousands of years and more recently, significant research has evaluated the benefit of CBD and other cannabinoids for supporting those with various types of inflammation. Cannabinoids show promise as a new class of inflammation-modulating agents, via their action on cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids modulate the inflammatory response via multiple pathways, including suppression of overactive immune cells, suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines at inflammatory sites, and enhanced T cell activity. Many significant medical conditions are a result of, or characterized by, chronic inflammation. Researchers are constantly exploring new agents to help alleviate the symptoms of chronic pain. Emerging cannabinoid research is showing promise for supporting individuals with chronic pain of various origins.



In humans, the stress response initiates hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activation, changes in central nervous system activity, neuroimmune alternations, as well as other physiological changes. While the acute stress response is essential to survival, chronic, untreated stress can contribute to a variety of other serious conditions.

Stress and anxiety can go hand-in-hand, with the terms often used interchangeably. They are, however, quite different. Stress, unlike anxiety, is the response to a threat or the pressures of daily life. Anxiety is a possible adverse reaction to stress, typically manifesting as fear or apprehension, and can present with physical symptoms such as racing heart, pain, shortness of breath, and/or dizziness. Generally, stress subsides after the stressor is removed, while anxiety symptoms can persist for six months or longer.

The endocannabinoid system serves to constrain HPA axis activity during times of stress. The involvement of signaling molecules (cytokines and chemokines) in the endocannabinoid-mediated stress response are of importance when considering therapeutic strategies. Animal studies have investigated endocannabinoid signaling under conditions of repeated stress and have demonstrated that disrupted signaling may be associated with decreased ability to adapt to chronic stress. In animals, CBD has been shown, via mediation of the endocannabinoid system, to promote adaptation to stress and its physiological effects.



Over 400,000 people in the United States suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS), with approximately 200 new cases diagnosed each week. Diagnosis usually occurs between the ages of 20 – 40, but MS also affects children and the aged. MS is a chronic, progressive disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms vary, but may include impairment of speech and of muscular coordination, numbness, nerve pain, muscle spasticity, blurred vision, and severe fatigue. Recent research on cannabidiol shows it to be neuroprotective in those with MS and other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury. It is thought to exert this effect by regulating inflammation in the nerves and muscles with pain due to spinal cord injury.
