I have no claim to this site- and actually beware, it's a site trying to sell you on their products but I do get their newsletter as it has some interesting info. As a matter of fact, I just got an email from them today discussing hypothyroidism (which I think I have though I tested normal years ago, but my mom had it) and iodine. Might be worth investigating.

Not

You can get enough Iodine (it is a trace element metabolic requirement) in Iodized salt from the grocery. You can supplement the amount you get by eating an occaisional serving of ocean fish.

No real nead for fancy supplements..,

(Odd, I have Depuytren's Contracture, and never heard any mention of iodine treatment in "MSM.")

The recommended daily allowance for Iodine is only 150 MICROGRAMS, not the 12.5 milligrams recommended in the linked International Wellness.

12.5 MILLIGRAMS would be almost 100 times as much Iodine as the body normally needs to consume.

IODINE is a toxic material. The TLV is 0.1 parts per million.

Probably almost as dangerous as MMS..,

.............This study showed that the body was adapting to the iodine load and becoming saturated with iodine while at the same time detoxifying from the toxic halides bromide and fluoride. This study provided the answer to the two questions previously posed. Because of the elevated levels of toxic halides in the environment and in the food supply, iodine levels have not only fallen but larger amounts of iodine are necessary to correct iodine deficiency as well as to promote a detoxifying effect of heavy metals.

For an iodine supplement, I like Atomidine. It is pure atomic iodine; atoms of iodine in a water solution. It is the most bioavailable form of iodine one can take. You can feel the difference the first time you try it. One drop delivers 600 mcg of iodine, so you can easily control the dose.

600 mcg seems so much more reasonable than 12.5 milligrams..,

Aye, but you need so little for normal function. That's why it's a "trace dietary element."

No need for massive supplements..,

I'm not well versed in the biochemistry if how iodine is used, but I would be suprized if "atomic" iodine (presumeably I2, since the diatomic form is the most common) is the most bioavailable since some process would be needed to split the diatomic molecule into two usable I atoms. I would think ionic iodine (from some iodine salt -- Like KI) would be the most efficient since it readily disoslves in water into I- and would already be in useable form when it gets to where it needs to go. Again I'm not exactly sure what form the iodine is used in, but just thinking out loud.

FWIW.... All I can tell you is that a few drops of Atomadine gives me a 'buzz', making me feel more energetic and alert. Other iodine supplements that have a greater concentration of iodine do not. Since the sole ingredients in Atomadine are 'atomic' iodine and water, my reaction seems to indicate that the iodine in Atomadine is in fact more bioavailable, as it effects me far more and far more quickly.

Default Iodine for Health by Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

Iodine for Health
Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

http://www.lewrockwell.com/miller/miller20.html



Donald Miller is a cardiac surgeon and Professor of Surgery at the University of Washington in Seattle. He is a member of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness and writes articles on a variety of subjects for LewRockwell.com. His web site is www.donaldmiller.com



..........I have been taking Lugol`s 5% Iodine solution (liquid - each drop has 6.25 mg of iodine and 12.50 mg of potassium iodide.) I started with a half drop at first (1 drop in a cup of water- pour out half the cup = 1/2 drop). I am now taking 2 drops a day. I will continue this for a few months to bump up the levels, then back to 1 drop a day. I will monitor the levels with a basic test of a drop on the skin and time the hours it takes to completely absorb the Iodine. When I can still see the iodine patch on the skin after 6 hours this is when I`ll maintain the 1 drop a day.

Iodine is not at all misunderstood, except among huxters with deficient education. Many of these people have plenty of schooling, so their confusion is a genuine mystery: they really should know better.

Iodide, with a 'd', is a necessary nutrient. Iodine, with an 'n', is a poison. A chemical reaction is required to go from one to the other. A chemical reaction involving human flesh is called a burn. Some people are very sensitive to iodine burns, showing symptoms similar to an allergy.

For a while there was a test going around the forums suggesting that one could diagnose an iodine deficiency by judging how fast the stain disappeared from the skin. This was based on the assumption that a deficient body would absorb the iodine and move it to where it was needed. Several people have studied the alleged reaction using radioactive iodine. They all get the same results: 88% of the iodine evaporates and 12% is absorbed into the skin -- and then it doesn't go anywhere else. It stays right there until the skin grows out and expels it.

The advice for iodine remains what it has always been: iodized salt or pills. You need some regularly, but you don't need much.

Yes, a topical applicaton of iodine to the skin is not an effective method to supplement the body.

The basic skin test is not a reliable test to check iodine levels in the body.
12 % of the application to the skin is absorbed by the body and the rate of total absorbtion could be used as a basic general test. I have tested many family members with Lugol`s 5% solution. Many would have a clear skin patch in a 2 hours. 2 that live near the ocean and consume moderate amount sea plants didn`t clear for 5-6 hours. Myself, I am 4-5 hours at this time.

I am also taking 200mg selenomthioine (Selenium) a day with the iodine/iodide supplementation.

Guy E. Abraham, M.D , the work that Dr. Brownstein has continued, has addressed this in publications:

The Bioavailability of Iodine Applied To The Skin
Guy E. Abraham, M.D
http://www.optimox.com/pics/Iodine/u...2/UNIOD_02.htm


To summarize the results of their experiments:

1. Free iodine penetrates through the unbroken skin.
2. Approximately 88 per cent of the iodine evaporate from the surface within three days.
3. Colloidal iodine evaporates somewhat more quickly than tincture of iodine; Lugol’s solution is more stable than either of them.
4. The influence of ambient temperature on the evaporation of iodine is significant: within the first minute, the losses of iodine by evaporation are: 10-15% at 9° c; 18-25% at 24° c; and 35% at 37° c.

(The tests were done on dogs and rabbits - The normal body temperature for a dog falls within the range of 100.5°F to 102.5°F (about 38°C to 39.2°C)
Normal rabbit body temperature ranges between 101oF - 103oF (38.3oC - 39.4o C).
)

5. The remaining iodine on the skin following evaporation of 88% of the total iodine, approximately 12 per cent, is at the disposal of the body, and penetrates through the skin. The bioavailability of the remaining 12% of the skin iodine is very gradual.
6. The fate of iodine in all above experiments is the same whether iodine is applied to the skin in the form of an alcoholic solution or in colloidal suspension. (For the reader’s information, the alcoholic solution is tincture of iodine and the colloidal suspension is a saturated aqueous solution of diatomic iodine, I2 ).

The authors concluded (1):

"Our quantitative determinations prove that iodine which penetrates through the skin is removed only slowly from within this area into the body, thus forming an iodine depot in the skin for several days. In this prolonged retention of iodine within the skin, we see a favorable condition for a possible local prophylactic and therapeutic action."


23 publications on iodine/iodide levels
http://www.optimox.com/pics/Iodine/opt_Research_I.shtml



The proper test is "The Iodine/Iodide Loading Test":
http://www.optimox.com/pics/Iodine/loadTest.htm


This test is used to assess whole body sufficiency for the essential element iodine. It is recommended prior to and following 3 months on orthoiodosupplementation.

Having learned that excess iodine/iodide is not toxic but passes out thru urine, like excess vitamin B does, I've been experimenting, am now up to 50 mg a day of Lugol's, I am usually sleeping thru the night (new!), my mood is consistently more relaxed less anxious (wow!), decisions are easier (amazing), thinking clearer (yea!), my hair no longer falls out (I assumed a couple dozen loose hairs whenever you run your fingers thru your hair was normal!). I'm convinced taking lots of iodine is doing me good.

The literature says the RDA is set for the minimum for the thyroid to not form goiter, but iodine or iodide is needed by every organ of the body not by just the thyroid, so 12mg is closer to the true minimum daily for excellent whole body health, and more to make up for deficit.

I looked into this further, and Atomidine is a solution of iodine trichloride in distilled water. It is apparently more bioavailable than KI.

Default The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency

The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency
Nancy Piccone
October 2011
http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2011/...iciency_01.htm


In 2008, researchers concerned about the growing threat of iodine deficiency analyzed 88 samples1 of iodized table salt—the main supply of this critical micronutrient for most people.2

Less than half of those tested contained amounts of iodine sufficient for optimal health.

Coupled with the trend of reduced salt consumption, rates of iodine deficiency are now reaching epidemic levels.

In the developed world, iodine deficiency has increased more than fourfold over the past 40 years. Nearly 74% of normal, “healthy” adults may no longer consume enough iodine.3,4

In this article, the latest data on this dangerous trend are presented. You will learn of iodine deficiency’s profound impact on overall health. You will discover iodine’s vital role in thyroid function and its link to obesity, cognitive impairment, heart disease, psychiatric disorders, and various forms of cancer. You will also find out how iodine can help ward off breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease.

The US recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for iodine is 150-290 micrograms (mcg) for adults, while the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine has set the tolerable upper limit at 1,100 mcg.18,23,24
Your Thyroid Gland and the Role of Iodine

These guidelines may be inadequate to address certain health conditions.

They were first established as sufficient only to prevent goiter. Daily doses for optimal health of 3,000-6,000 mcg have been used without side effects in studies of people with other iodine deficiency-related health conditions such as polycystic breast disease.18

By way of comparison, the average daily Japanese consumption of iodine ranges from 5,280 to 13,800 mcg of iodine, with no harmful effects and a host of benefits.18,25,26 The Japanese experience is shedding new light on the importance of iodine, not only for thyroid health, but on other body functions as well. In particular, compelling evidence is emerging about the role of iodine in maintaining breast health, a major concern for millions of American women...............................continued

This is why I started to use lite salt with iodine when the dr said to cut back on salt but not iodine. He recomended a brand that has both for me.
