Default Health Alert - This Affects You All - Thyroid

I have been researching the Thyroid gland recently, so imagine my happiness when Coast 2 Coast broadcast a whole program about it.

We are being deliberately stripped of iodine in our diets.

Fluoride (water, toothpaste, etc), Chloride (Water, washing up liquid, detergent, cleaning products) Bromide (white flour products, bread, cakes, etc) are in the same group on the periodic table as iodine.

They substitute themselves very easily for iodine in the thyroid molecule.

A blood test from your doctor will show a normal thyroid test, but, the thyroid molecule is no longer iodine based and so the molecule is ineffective.

In other words - EVERYONE - will have thyroid deficiencies.

Thyroid is the underlying cause for our health in EVERY process in the human body.

A lack of it will lead to EVERY disease we see today - Alzheimer's, ADD, heart disease, diabetes, cataracts, arthritis - you name it, a lack of thyroid will act as a catalyst for all diseases in every case.

Iodine was dropped from vitamins and minerals in the late 80's and this was carried out obstensively because iodine was dangerous. Looking back on this decision it is utter BS.

Iodine in the mg range is perfectly safe and is massively needed by the body.

We need at least 12mg (Japanese diet) of iodine daily. We are lucky to get 1mg daily in our western diets - and if our food is non-organic then the fertilisers used in production will destroy that.

Kelp is only 54mg per 100gm, so getting it from that may be a problem. Iodised salt is no good, wrong type of iodine, does not get absorbed by the body. Organic unprocessed Sea Salt does have good iodine in it, but, not alot.

Please check this link on iodine:

Iodine - Why We Need It


This link is the link to the Coast 2 Coast program, please listen to it all, there is a mass of information, especially about the UK blood test:



Here is another excellent site:

http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/

The best product I have heard about for iodine is Lugol's Iodine - available on the web.

3 drops is equivalent to the 12mg you need daily.

People with mercury fillings would need up to 50mg per day it has been found.

I just checked my Centrum Advance multi-vits and they do have iodine in, apparently 66.7% of my daily requirement.

But thanks for the info. I agree, weakening our thyroids is an obvious way of dumbing us down.

I read about this a bit back, the suggestion offered was dulse as it has high levels of natural iodine.

here's a bit of info about it:

Dulse (Dillisk, Sea Grass, or Palmaria Palmata) is a variety of seaweed derived from the colder waters of the North Atlantic and Northwest Pacific Oceans. Dulse attaches to rocks by means of a holdfast and is a red or purplish color. Because of its high levels of natural iodine and rich mineral content it is used favorably as a dietary supplement and medicinally as a treatment for thyroid disorders. In addition to its high iodine levels, it is a rich source of potassium, zinc, manganese, iron, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin C (absorbic acid), calcium, and vitamin E.

Because thyroid disease often is precipitated by low iodine levels, many individuals suffering from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism benefit from supplementing with dulse. Although iodine is added to our common table salt, it is in synthetic form, devoid of any natural minerals to aid in its absorption.

Thank you very much for posting. I have just been diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and hypothyroidism. I shall definitely be looking more into this. Currently, I am being prescribed L-thyroxine which is a synthetic thyroid hormone which I have been told I must take for life. Obviously, I would prefer to take the natural route and your link looks like a good place to start!

Endocrine disruptors can lead to many diseases. However, most of them are found in what we eat and drink, by design.

I bet your centrum has Magnesium Stereate in it? If it does, google "Magnesium Stearate immunosuppressant cell death".

Quite possibly there has been some re-introduction.

I remember clearly that it was taken out in the late 80's as I was bodybuilding at the time and felt cheated for a long time.

BTW - how much is the 66% of iodine.

Mark, the iodine is 100 yg (the y is reversed, so it must be another kind of symbol)

Thyroxine (T4) according to the Doctor on the C2C interview is not the active form of thyroid. T3 is.

Thyroxine is mostly iodine anyway.

I agree totally.

Yes, that's micrograms and is totally useless.

How can micrograms be 66% - a microgram is 100th of a milligram.

Are you currently taking thyroxine by any chance. I ask because I take this and I understand that if you also take iodine you could be putting yourself at risk. I guess it's a case of replacing one with the other.
I'm off to see a consultant on Monday to try to get a natural alternative, I'm not holding my breath though. If the consultant doesn't come up with anything then I will probably stop taking the thyroxine and order the natural stuff.

So if you can get the T3 (which they do prescribe sometimes) then is that better or worse than taking the natural sea grass?

I'm not a doctor so this is not advice (legal reasons)

T3 is 100 times better than T4. T4 for most people is ineffective after a short while.

Whole thyroid gland prescribed from a practitioner is the best of all.

Nutri in the UK make whole thyroid gland, but, has the T4 removed.

They have lists of practitioners in your area:

Nutri

Call them it's freephone.

I do not know whether they have a thyroid product that is whole so to speak that practitioners can prescribe.

Currently, I am only taking the Thyroxine. I have just been put on L-Thyroxine 25mg for two weeks after which it will go up to 50mg. I am then to go back to my endocrynologist at the end of 3 months for further tests to see whether or not a higher dose will be required thereafter. But like you would eventually like to replace the thyroxine with a natural remedy as I am not entirely sure what the long term effects of this drug are. I even read somewhere that it may cause breast cancer when used over a long period of time

You are right about not taking both at the same time though as I did ask my consultant about this.

What name is T3 marketed under? Apologies if this seems like a dumb question but I am still rather new to all of this.
