I am still dealing with trying to rid myself of large fibroids. I've been hearing a lot about Iodine.
If anyone can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I have a couple of questions:
1) What is the best iodine?
2) Where do I buy iodine?
3) How much do I take?
4) Do you take it straight or in juice/water..etc?
5) Side effects?
6) Does anyone know of any websites that might directly answer these questions or with people that have successfully shrunk their fibroids or gotten rid of them?
I was having great success with my Chinese acupunturist before my Mom got terminal cancer but then I stopped taking care of myself to take care of her and now the chinese herbs are not working as well.
I had been hearing about Iodine being good for shrinking fibroids but was scared to try for some reason...
Hi, I am one of those people who have had great success with Iodine supplementation to cure uterine fibroids. I use Lugols solution, as it has more I2 than SSKI , and the I2 (elemental iodine) is really important for women with uterine fibroids or fibrocystic breast disease, (which I also had).
I started with 50mg Lugols per day (6-8 drops) in a glass of water, first thing in the morning. I did have a week or so of detox reaction, but upped the dose to 100mg per day, and these detox symtoms passed quickly. In a few weeks I saw dramatic reduction in my FBD, and the uterine fibroids started shrinking. After six months of Iodine supplementation most of the FBD was gone, and the uterine fibroids were almost gone. After 9 months, I had a breast examination and no FBD could be detected at all, I also had an ultrasound and no uterine fibroids could be detected either. My cycle is now normal, with no pain, and regular as clockwork.
As for buying iodine, that would depend on which country you live in.
There is a lot of info on this forum, and lots of women who have had success with uterine fibroids.
Hi Karina, you can get Lugols online in the US, in tablet form or liquid, it doesn't really matter which form you take, its more a matter of preference. I honestly believe that Iodine saved my life. My Mum died at 48 years of age, from breast cancer, and for most of her life she suffered from FBD and uterine fibroids, she had an hysterectomy when she was 36, because of a fibroid the size of a football. I believe if she had known about the importance of Iodine for treating these conditions, she would still be alive today.
