We usually think of iodine in relation to thyroid function, but the breasts also store large amounts of iodine. Supplementation has been shown to alleviate fibrocystic breast disease, as well as prevent cancer. Taken orally, one drop of Detoxified Iodine from Natural Findings in three to six ounces of water should be taken on the first day, increasing the dose by one drop each day for five days. Take two days off and then repeat the sequence for three weeks. After that, increase the dose to somewhere between one and 10 drops per day, depending on the need.
There have been numerous studies that link low iodine levels to fibrocystic breast disease. Tori Hudsom, ND, program director of the Institute of Women’s Health and Integrative Medicine, in Portland, Oregon, notes that the thyroid gland requires iodine to secrete thyroxine, suggesting that iodine deficiency may be a causative factor in fibrocystic breasts. “Without iodine, the breast tissue becomes more sensitive to estrogenic stimulation, which in turn produces microcysts high in potassium,” states Hudsom. “The potassium is believed to be an irritant that produces fibrosis and eventually, cyst isolation.” Many women and their doctors think that fibrocystic breast disease is a normal condition, but large, palpable cysts can be painful and have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.
Symptom relief varies a great deal with the different types, and the aqueous iodine achieved both symptom relief in 74 percent of the women in one study and objective reduction in nodules and resolution of fibrosis in 65 percent of the patients, without adverse effects on the thyroid gland.
There is also evidence that the low breast cancer rates in Japan are due to their high iodine intake from seafood. Increasing your iodine intake is definitely something worthwhile, because it can help breast pain and fibrocystic breast changes. In Western countries, a large percentage of women experience benign, but often painful cysts and lumps in their breasts. Their breasts feel lumpy, “ropy” or “granular”, as if full of little nodules. Some women can even feel the presence of larger cysts. Detoxified Iodine from Natural Findings goes a long way toward restoring the peace of mind that can be shattered by the discovery of any kind of lump.
These cysts occur when a breast duct becomes blocked and fills up with fluid, like a balloon filled with water. The area surrounding the blocked duct then has a tendency to form scar tissue, and that is the fibrous component of the fibrocystic disease. This generalized breast lumpiness is known by several names, including fibrocystic breast condition, fibrous breasts, fibrocystic breast disease, fibrocystic changes and benign breast disease.
