Iodine (Iodoral)
Oct 26, 2007
Hello all,

I wanted to chime in here, which I haven't in awhile, and briefly talk about what I've been researching the last few days. As you can tell by the title, I've been reading about Iodine and more specifically the supplement Iodoral. I never realized how important Iodine was to the human body. It is truly amazing what you can find out on your own and what conventional doctors will never tell you. Truly amazing! Dr. Klinghardt, one of the most recognized Lyme specialists in the world, views Iodine as the most critical element in Lyme patients. He feels filling up the body’s mineral reserves has always been the most essential part of his heavy metal detox program. It is also the most essential part of his Lyme treatment.

I've also realized that I exhibit many iodine deficiency symptoms...low body temperature (never above 97.7), cold hands and feet, excess mucous production, etc. In a nutshell, Iodine is critical for our overall health and most of us do not get enough to obtain optimal health, especially us suffering from disease. They link Iodine deficiency to many things, but most importantly cancer, mainly breast. The people of Japan's daily intake of Iodine is about 13mg. The RDA in the U.S is 150mcg. This is way too low. The people of Japan have the lowest percentage of breast cancer or cancer in general in the world. Pretty amazing. There have been may clinical studies and Iodine has been used for many years. Before popular anti-fungal drugs like nystatin came out, iodine was primarily used. Iodine is a powerful, antimicrobial, anti fungal, antiviral, anti parasitic, and antibacterial element. Don't take my word for your own research!

Hello all,

Just been doing some reading on Potassium Iodide (Iodoral) and its use in the treatment of other diseases. The most intriguing reading has been its use in the treatment of Syphilis. As we all know, Syphilis is caused by a spiral-shaped bacterium called a spirochete, just like Lyme. I thought you guys would find this interesting if you didn't know it already. This could become part of an effective treatment for Lyme disease. I'm not saying it's an end all be all treatment, but it might turn out to be very effective. Iodine is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiparasitic. Plus, our bodies need it to function properly. If you haven't already, please read the differences between "organic" and "inorganic" iodine. Don't get them confused. Iodoral is an "inorganic" non radioactive for of potassium iodide, which is extremely safe. I've also read where Iodine can be safely used in gram amounts for certain treatments. This is way more than we are taking using Iodoral, with the max being 50mg, which is 4 tablets a day. I'll be doing more research and will update you as I go on.
