True health returns when the body’s natural working order and chemistry are restored by detoxifying and eliminating all foreign substances from the body organs that hamper their natural function.
Lugol’s Iodine: The Body’s Immunity Needs Iodine
The body’s need for iodine is known, as well as its deficiency in relation to disease. Years ago, we obtained sufficient iodine from our food, however, now food and farmland are iodine-deficient, thus weakening one of the primary mechanisms of defense. A primary cause of disease/illness in the body is pathogen microorganisms. With sufficient iodine in the thyroid, pathogens are made weaker and most are destroyed as they pass through. But the vast majority of people do not have enough iodine in their body for the thyroid to function optimally. Iodine deficiency can easily be reversed with supplementation to negate many of its health conditions and disorders.
Destroys Vicious Stomach Bacteria
Lugol’s taken internally in addition to replenishing the thyroid, also brings amazing relief and a calming, soothing, peaceful state to anxiety and a manic stage. It destroys vicious stomach bacteria, (especially salmonella), against gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn. Doomed are harmful bacteria and parasite eggs. It is 100% safe (except if allergic) to take regularly, but only use as needed.
Most of us are Deficient in Iodine
Lugol’s iodine is old-fashioned iodine and years ago was used for treating various illnesses. It has a distinctive trait – it hangs up on everything. In the stomach, it attaches to vicious salmonella, bacteria, parasite eggs and they are doomed. The thyroid is the organ most capable of absorbing iodine. Pathogenic microorganisms, the primary cause of disease, are made weaker and most are killed as they pass through the thyroid, provided, it has its normal supply of iodine. Clinical studies show that very few people have enough iodine in their thyroid to function optimally. This deficiency has occurred in the 20th century because of chlorine in drinking water, the alteration of natural food sources and modern farming practices. Aggravating the problem is that the body does not conserve iodine, therefore, we must get a regular supplemental intake to maintain optimal health.
The Thyroid, Iodine and Disease Prevention
The role of the thyroid gland has been understood for some time now. Although conventional medicine places emphasis on its contribution to regulating the body’s metabolism and equally important role is its contribution to the immunological health and body.
This organ’s thyroid cells are the ones in the body capable of absorbing iodine, an important mineral nutrient and potent germ killer. Though 80% of the less than 25 mg. of iodine in the body is found elsewhere primarily in muscle and bone, the thyroid has a concentration of iodine that is over 1000 times greater than that found in muscle tissue. In terms of immunology, the thyroid gland acts a gatekeeper: every 17 minutes all the blood in the body passes through the thyroid, where this gland’s secretion of iodine kills germs that have come into the body (through absorption of food in the digestive tract, skin injury, respiratory intake, etc.) Pathogenic micro-organisms, the primary causative agent disease for the body, are made weaker during their passage through the thyroid gland. With every “17 minute passage” they are made still weaker until most are killed, provided the thyroid has its normal supply of iodine.
2011 update March 15th — Wall Stree Journal…Supplies of potassium iodide, a preventive against radiation poisoning of the thyroid gland, are running low at some manufacturers, as Americans seek protection amid fears that radiation from Japan could head to the U.S., according to the companies.
