If you or a woman close to you were advised to have a double mastectomy performed in order to prevent breast cancer, shouldn’t another option be available?
Medical mutilations have been performed lately on women told they are genetically predisposed to getting breast cancer.
That other option could be a good diet with supplemental iodine.
Exactly why iodine offers the other option for preventing breast cancer regardless of genetics is referenced later in this article.
Dr. David Brownstein could be called Dr. Iodine for all he’s done to inform others of the importance of iodine through interviews and his book Iodine: Why You Need It; Why You Can’t Live Without It.
Dr. Mark Sircus, who occasionally contributes articles to Natural News, constantly promotes bicarbonate of soda, magnesium, and iodine as more important and effective for health than most realize.
Now, Dr. Jeffrey Dach has grabbed the iodine talking stick, producing several international clinical, lab, and case study reports that demonstrate the efficacy of iodine ingestion for breast cancer.
Dr. Dach on iodine
Salt used to be iodized with elemental iodine to prevent goiter, but no more. So what little protection that offered has vanished. Dr. Dach notes that iodized salt is not sufficient for supplementing iodine.
Iodine’s RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) is 150 mcg (micrograms) per day. Dr. Guy Abraham, who initially mentored Dr. Brownstien, insists we should be taking in 12.5 mg (milligrams) of elemental iodine daily. This is 100 times greater than our RDA.
It’s also the estimated iodine per individual intake from seaweed and seafood among Japan’s population. Japan has the lowest rates of thyroid, prostate, and breast cancer. Some might argue that the Japanese get their iodine from food, but iodine supplements are unsafe.
Well, the FDA recommends 165 mg of iodine to prevent thyroid cancer in the event of a radiation emergency, and iodine has been used medicinally with even higher doses in the past.
Speaking of thyroid cancer, there has been an upsurge of thyroid nodules, leading to complete removal of thyroid glands to determine whether the nodules are cancerous.
Even if no cancer is detected, the person is sentenced to a lifetime of synthetic prescription thyroid hormones. Iodine can prevent that unhealthy scenario.
In addition to preventing some cancers, there are several studies and actual case histories demonstrating iodine’s ability to cure breast cancer.
Lab studies and breast cancer case histories
Here’s that option for stemming genetically predisposed breast cancer. Iodine has been determined to actually alter breast cancer associated gene expressions. It turns off cancer promoting genes and turns on genes that promote cancer cell apoptosis or cellular destruction. (http://www.medsci.org/v05p0189)
Another study proves that large iodine intake does not adversely affect thyroid hormone production or quality. The researchers did this to allay concerns in the medical profession about potential downsides for using iodine against breast cancer. Downsides don’t prevent using chemo and radiation though.
Dr. Dach lists many international in vivo studies using rats, epidemiological human surveys, and in vitro (petri dish) lab studies demonstrating the efficacy and safety of ingesting elemental iodine for cancerous tumors.
All of these studies, with a few actual case histories, are available in Dr. Jeffrey Dach’s articles sourced below:
Dr. Guy Abraham developed a product called Idoral. And Dr. Edward Group, DC, ND, lists four types of iodine supplements that vary in bio-availability: Nascent iodine, Lugol’s solution, potassium iodide, and transformative nano-colloidal detoxified iodine.
Is there any natural method to adjust the thyroid?
First of all you need to do the Deep Breathing/Trampoline/ Health Restoration program.
Dr. Brownstein specializes in thyroid issues (energy, weight loss or gain) and tests his patients and found that over 95% of them were deficient in iodine.
Many of his patients have seen 3, 4 or more specialists (endocrinologists) who cannot figure out their health issues, specifically the thyroid. All cells in the body need iodine for proper functioning.
Dr. Brownstein believes that iodine deficiency is a major cause of breast cancer and other diseases of the reproductive organs such as ovarian, uterus and prostrate cysts and cancers. Most people who suffer from cold hands and feet are iodine deficient.
Iodine levels in US soil have fallen 50 per cent over the past 50 years and soil in the US is deficient in iodine. The Great Lakes region has some of lowest soil iodine levels in the world and this results in high levels of cancers related to iodine deficiency.
Women with large breasts need more iodine than women with smaller breasts.
Other medical authorities agree that iodine deficiency can lead to fibrocystic breast disease and/or ovarian cysts Iodine can similarly reduce uterine fibroids and one of the first conventional medical treatments for severe fibroids was to paint the uterus with iodine.
“Of all the elements known so far to be essential for health, iodine is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, it is by far the safest of all the trace elements known to be essential for human health
How to test your iodine levels – when you awake in the morning, take your temperature. Put the thermometer in your mouth or under your arm for 10 minutes. Afterwards record your temperature.
Constant basal body temperature should be 98.4 (36.89 Celsius). If it is below 97.8 (36.56 Celsius) you have low thyroid function and need to supplement iodine. If it is higher than you have a low grade infection and would again need iodine and Borax water consumption. Take your temperature during 10 days and write it down to see if it’s consistent. Women who still menstruate should start on day 1 of their period and check for the next 10 days. Another method, although not as accurate is to paint Lugo’s iodine over an area the size of about 5 cm. If it gets itchy more to another areas for a few days. Check each morning before you shower to see if the iodine has disappeared or not. Once the iodine no longer disappears you can put off painting. It means your iodine level is okay, maybe you really don’t need any more for now. If you are putting 3 drops of iodine in water or juice each day then stop that as well. Two months later start up again.
Some doctors suggested that people put iodine into a nebulizer for aerosol treatment for transdermal effect into the lung tissues in the case of lung cancer, emphysema, asthma and tuberculosis.
Dr. Michael B. Schachter says, “The treatment dose when a person is iodine insufficient is generally between 12.5 mg and 50 mg daily. At that quantity however, the patient needs to be monitored closely with awareness of possible side effects and detoxification reactions.”
One lady reported “After supplementing with iodine, I began getting hot flashes and night sweats and stopped menstruating. I also had difficulty sleeping through the night. Proceed with caution. It took about three months for the hot flashes and night sweats to stop, I’m now sleeping through the night, and I have begun menstruating again. I still supplement occasionally with iodine, but very small amounts.”
The Lugol’s iodine the BUDWIG CENTER uses is 5% so then 2 drops is 25 mg.
Dr. David Brownstein recommends AT MINIMUM 2 drops per day or 12.5 mg – 25 mg of iodine/potassium Iodide (lugols or iodoral), optimally he recommends 50mg which is 4 drops per day. Usually recommended 3 drops per day but if you have not side effects take 4 drops along with iodine painting as outlined here below Dr. Brownstein recommends at minimum 100 mg for very severe conditions like Breast Cancer. So even 100 mgs is safe. That would be 8 drops of 5% or 8 iodoral tabs
