Skip to comments.Japan, Radiation Fallout and Iodine Recommendations
Posted on 03/12/2011 5:00:54 PM PST by spacejunkie01
There's alot of confusion about taking iodine to ward off radiation poisoning. Dr. Brownstein is an expert in iodine/iodide usage and has written a blog specifically for the radiation.
Inorganic, non radiated iodine does not cause allergies. Most symptoms that people may connect to iodine and assume they are allergic are actually bromine detox symptoms.
Whether we're faced with radiation coming to this country or not, we should all take iodine for health. Deficiency in iodine is known to cause breast cancer, fibroids, thyroid cancer, ovarian and prostate cancer.

high potency iodine/potassium iodide supplement.
and iodine 5 mg
iodide 7.5 mg
see if you can get armour thyroid.
Ya, those “estimates” can’t be based on much. By the time it gets here, if there really was a large release, it ought to be dispersed pretty widely and therefore relatively weak. But radioactive fallout even in low dosages isn’t good for kids. Being momentarily exposed to radiation verses inhaling radio active dust aren’t the same thing, the dust has longer term consequences.
what does your temperature run without iodine?
I take a 150microgram iodine kelp supplement. Low level like that should be good for you anyway.
And btw, if it’s 750rads/hour nothing’s going to help. After about 20 minutes you’ve had a lethal dose and will linger and die.
At 750 you probably would be luckier if it was 75000 cause at least then you’ll go quick.
Then KI ain’t gonna help anyone on the west coast...
They all die.
Get a grip.
Correct. An adult will start have GI bleeding around 250-300 REMs/RADS and has a good chance at croaking. 500 rems/rads and it’s byebye for real...but there are some new meds that were approved by FDA back ~ 2004 that may help but 750 would mean everyone would have to hunmker down in their basements for several days at least.
people that are hypo, hyper, hashimoto’s, etc., all should be taking the ‘right’ iodine supplement. Iodine is what facilitates your body’s ability to manufacture the thyroid hormone but every cell requires iodine. It is particularly crucial for reproductive organ health. I believe what happens with hyperthyroid is that the thyroid is getting the bulk of the thyroid and the rest of the body is depleted whereas, hypo people have more iodine in their other cells but the thyroid is depleted. My 2c theory is that people with hyperthyroidism are more apt to get breast cancer than hypo people.
There is an iodine test called a loading test. You can definitely do that (it’s a urine test) but I would say 99% you will be deficient in iodine. In fact, Dr. Brownstein (or Abrahams, another good iodine doc) said they’ve essentially stopped the iodine loading as they were all coming back deficient.
If you live in the mid/upper mid west, you most likely live in what’s called the goiter belt, as iodine is very low in the soil there and people are not getting it in their diet. To make matters worse, flouride, chlorine and bromine ALL block iodine absorption.
Usually about 97.2
Sometimes as low as 95
150mcg just isn’t enough with all the other things that are up against it like massive amounts of flouride/chlorine/bromine. These mimic iodine and block absorption so the very low doses aren’t getting absorbed. The higher doses, or pulse dosing (higher a few days then lower a few days,etc) will flush out the toxic halides and allow you to absorb it.
This should say ‘the body is getting the bulk of the IODINE’, not thyroid...
Have you ever taken your temperature in your ear??
I run low like you when done by mouth but my ear temperature is above normal
And to clarify, the adult dose per day, 130 milligrams, is generally one tablet. Split the tablet and you have 2 65 mg doses, quarter it for small child doses, and cut the quarter dosess in half for babies.
I use 5% Lugols to go along with my Armour. My entire family gets a dose of Iodine first thing in the morning. Most Americans do not get enough iodine.
Yes, some people have reactions because of that. If you are allergic, generally the recommendation is not to take it. You however, can still be protected by building an area in your basement to stay in that uses concrete block, wood, etc to help absorb radiation to prevent it from getting to you. It’s the gamma radiation that you need to stop, alpha and beta will be stopped from your house walls, mostly. Gamma needs to be stopped by denser materials.
I would not say that.
If they are indoors in the basement under heavy shelter material and stay there for a day or two most of that radiation will break down. Not being outdoors directly exposed sure, you are in trouble.
excellent. Lugol’s is the liquid form of Iodoral. Both are good.
How many drops are you all doing per day?
