Such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium? My alternative doc did a stool analysis that revealed an intestinal dysbiosis, or imbalance of friendly and possibly pathogenic bacteria (the culprit being Citrobacter braakii). He is recommending a probiotic pearl with 20B live cultures, but I'm wondering if idione will kill them given its antibacterial properties.
the Iodine docs find it mentionable that their patients on iodine have little difficulty with dysbiosis. this is on a regular supplement of 50mg up to 100mg, best i can tell from their reports.
it can take a lot of iodine to cause a problem. however, how little is yet to be determined. i recently experienced what i thought was a dysbiosis and stopped all iodine to let the gut repopulate. consider this, though. only a fool would take as much iodine as i was - 3-5 grams a day of KI. i can assure you, though safe in the temporary for hitting a bad systemic infection, it is not sustainable. the only example i have of a sustainable high dose is the one gram a day taken by dr szent-gyorgi.
bottom line, i would stop iodine to address a dysbiosis.
