Renowned natural health expert Dr. Andrew Weil has a few things to say about iodine. “Good dietary sources of iodine include iodized salt; dairy products (animals secrete dietary iodine into milk and animal feed contains iodine); and seafood, including fish, shellfish, seaweed, kelp, sardines and canned tuna. Plants grown on iodine-rich soil are also good sources. If you are eating a healthy, balanced, varied diet, you’re probably getting enough iodine.”
Okay, fair enough. But taking Natural Findings Detoxified Iodine as a supplement still makes good sense, because who among us may cast the first stone about living a perfect lifestyle with a perfectly balanced diet? Iodine deficiency can cause hypothyroidism, with symptoms such as extreme fatigue, mental slowing, depression, weight gain, low basal body temperatures and even goiters, or enlargement of the thyroid.
Without Natural Findings Detoxified Iodine, iodine deficiency is the leading cause of preventable mental retardation that primarily develops among babies or small children lacking the element. Other health effects that may be related to iodine deficiency include fibrocystic breast disease and breast and stomach cancer.
Dr. Weil also covers the flip side of supplementation. “Signs and symptoms of acute iodine poisoning include burning of the mouth, throat and stomach; fever; nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; a weak pulse; and coma. Excessive iodine intake can be toxic to those with kidney disease or tuberculosis and may increase the risk of thyroid papillary cancer.”
That’s not going to happen with Natural Findings Detoxified Iodine. Here are the directions: ‘One drop in three to six ounces of water should be taken orally on the first day, increasing the dose by one drop each day for five days. Take two days off and them repeat the sequence for three weeks. After that, increase the dose to somewhere between five and 15 drops per day, depending on the need.” No guesswork and no worry about getting too little or too much.
Users of Natural Findings Detoxified Iodine, sold in convenient half-ounce amber dropper bottles (a four-to-eight-week supply), will appreciate that all processing is done in the U.S., subject to the most exacting standards of purity and quality control.
