A Possible Amazing Game Changer? By Ali Skylar

A couple of months ago I was introduced to Dr. David Brownstein as part of a series about Iodine on Gaia TV.

It blew my mind how this one element can be a total game changer for our well-being and health.  And that most of us are deficient in it and as a result, can be experiencing health problems that could be easily fixed by adding this one, powerful nutrient to a healthy lifestyle.

According to Dr. Brownstein in the introduction to his book IODINE: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It, “We are suffering from a plethora of illnesses all related to iodine deficiency including cancer of the breast, thyroid, ovary, uterus and prostate, as well as autoimmune thyroid illnesses, hypothyroidism, fibrocystic breast disease, ADHA, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. (P.19)

“Furthermore, every cell depends on adequate iodine stores for the cell machinery to run optimally.” (P. 87)

And the testimonials in his book are just so overwhelmingly positive.  People’s lives have been changed overnight.  Kids have transformed from unable to sit still and learn, to being able to focus, enjoy a healthy, happy life at school and at home, free of the ADHD symptoms.  People have been cured of cancer.  The stories of regaining health abound.

“Children (and adults) need iodine for the normal formation and maintenance of their endocrine glands (e.g. thyroid and ovaries) and for normal brain development.  Inadequate iodine levels, as previously mentioned, will set the stage for poor development and a lifelong history of learning problems.” (p.210).

“Due to the continual and steady exposure to the toxic goitrogens so prevalent in our modern environment, iodine supplementation is more important than ever, especially in children.  I believe that iodine deficiency is one of the main causes (or the main cause) of ADHD and autism. ADHD and autism are occurring at epidemic rates right now.” (P.212).

I watched Dr. Brownstein’s series and was so impressed by his down-to-earth, humble and logical approach towards his over two decades of treatment with iodine.  He even uses it in hydrogen peroxide nebulizers to successfully treat and cure the flu and colds in many, many patients.

His Gaia Tv series and book inspired me to go test my iodine levels.  Lo and behold I was low.  Luckily, my doctor is very familiar with Dr. Brownstein’s work and is guiding me as I supplement to get to the appropriate level for my body.

I highly suggest checking out Dr. Brownstein’s website at  https://www.centerforholisticmedicine.com/ Then decide for yourself if this is a treatment to pursue.

I’ve never been a believer in a “quick fix,” and as Dr. Brownstein stays, it’s not just about the iodine, but adding this into a lifestyle based upon healthy principles like a clean diet, good sleep, exercise and so forth. 

Honestly, wouldn’t it be so wonderful if all we needed to do to alleviate so many devastating illnesses from our human experience was to add iodine to our daily protocol? 

I know this inexpensive supplement is a huge threat to the big pharma, and to the medical industry in general, but perhaps it is the gift we’ve all been waiting for to take back our health and give us the freedom to live our lives based upon the genius of mother nature.

Fingers crossed..:)
