This forum has been up for 10 years now. Almost 1000 pages. close to FIFTY MILLION HITS. That's amazing.
I love iodine, it probably saved my life.
There are numerous groups on facebook devoted to Iodine now. Each has it's own rules. Some of the rules are quite restrictive and hamper free speech and debate. some are formed in protest of other group's rules lol. some merely disseminate info with no thought, no research. And in the midst of all that, there's real healing going on. It's all good.
Every other progressive doctor, healer, what-have-you preaches Iodine now. That is a good thing. The details change but at least the message is out there.
So much that is out there came from this forum. I see the same truths we arrived at disseminated as though they are a matter of fact. I see the same old half-truths disseminated as though they are the truth as well. Then of course the lies are still floating around, sadly.
I give this forum credit for paving the way. we discovered and debated and holy hell we all detoxed together, we were truly io-lunatics.
I do love the curezone format, I always will. Facebook just doesnt do it for me. thanks, webbie, for providing us with such a valuable resource and place to learn.
Damn I miss those days. I love you all. All of you seekers. :-*

I have just joined, and I've never seen a more bizarrely arranged forum. I was led here by Lynne Farrow's book "The Iodine Crisis". First, I went to the Yahoo Group site, which is closed. Then I went to Dr. Buist's Facebook site, which just seems to be a bunch of quotations, mottos and pet photos. Now this. I'm very disappointed. It would take YEARS to get much in the way of info by wading through these posts that seem to be randomly organized. What am I missing here? My A.D.D. is bad, but not usually THIS bad!

The volume of information has only grown in the years since I joined, and that was years after the founding of this group by (V)ulcanel together with (W)ombat and (T)rapper. Back then I read from the beginning, taking notes like crazy and keeping a long list of favorites to return to.
One way to get started would be to click "Success" "Educational" or "Warning" just below the "Start New Topic" in bright red near the top of the page. Each of those sections will bring up posts and threads that were marked by a moderator as being important. It used to be "R" "RR" and "RRR" that we could sort on. I couldn't figure out quickly how to do that.
Any post or thread marked with such indicators is worth paying attention to, as are posts by the said Vulcanel, Wombat, and Trapper together with Ginagirl and various characters that were part of this explosive process over the years that you'll see mentioned time and again.
So, I believe that Search is the best way to find what might help at this time. Also read whatever appears on Dr. Jorge Flechas, one of the original Iodine researchers who has given lectures summing up the important applications of iodine.

You've come a long way baby.
Maybe you remember, many moons ago I discussed how calcium supplements were bad because of zeta potential lowering of dipositive cation electrolytes. When you have a spare hour for learning, consider spending it to, listen to my friend: :)
I have a wisdom tooth in my mouth responsible for at least like 15 months of bad breath, and possibly health deterioration. I've been taking Iodine for maybe 4-6 months now? I'm up to taking 200mg a day (when I remember). This may or may not be relevant, just throwing it out there.
The wisdom tooth in question is maybe a couple degrees away from growing completely horizontal in my mouth... I have very big teeth and smile so there's not a lot of space in my mouth.. and this tooth in question is bad and the smell there is very rotten, so I'm having it extracted. Any thoughts? It's swollen also right now so I've been gargling with Iodine but I don't think just Iodine is going to fix this as the way it's growing is promoting infection and for food particles to get stuck.
The doctor prescribed me antibiotics which I won't be taking and asprin, which I also won't be taking. I'm hoping Colloidal and Iodine fight off any possible infection efficiently enough.

Although my situation it not exact, I did too have wisdom teeth that were bothering me. My gums swelled and there was lots of pain. The teeth have grown in pretty straight but half of each tooth is covered with gum. Will I get them extracted, not sure, but what I did to help with the swelling/pain/etc... was mixed a small amount on coconut oil with himalayan salt, and added 2-4 drops of oregano oil together. I then swished the mixture in my mouth for 20mins every day. Within a few days all swelling disappeared and pain went away. Maybe something to try? I'm not an expert, this is just what worked for me

Thanks for the response. I am interested what you end up deciding as far as keeping them / removing them. TBH I mean they are swollen and in a bit of a pain but I really don't MIND the pain if that makes sense. I know gargling with Lugols and some essential oils every day will decimate any sort of bacterial infection but the main issue is I just don't know whether they should stay or go.
Obviously I searched this forum and curezone as a whole and the overwhelming opinion was: don't remove them unless your really need to. However I really don't see the situation improving too much.. there's just really no way for the tooth to grow in properly and it already has cavities, is impacted, I can TASTE the foulness coming from it. Even if I were able to minimize the inflammation and all this other stuff, it seems like I'm over extending. Also I think there is a good chance my tooth is dead given the state it's in... like if I get it removed, I expect there to be mush.
Anyway, yeah I mean I might regret it but I definitely can't leave it as is, unless someone really thinks I shouldn't. Thanks for the advice.

Ahh I've been wondering the same thing for myself, should they stay or should they go... I'm super confused on all of that. I too have been poking around on here and other sites for some sort of guidance but I keep getting a mix of things. For now they will stay because they aren't bothering me anymore since doing the oil swishing mixture I posted above. My situation is slightly different from you though. My wisdom teeth are somewhat straight in place and just have maybe half gum covering them. The teeth are white and don't seem to show any sort of decay, but again I'm no expert so I can't be certain on anything. I am going to go see a biological dentist soon and see what they think. I will come back to this post if I end up getting any/all removed

My opinion -- get rid of it. It's growing horizontally, which will affect the rest of your teeth negatively. It's rotting, which is affecting you systemically. It's a toxic burden on your body that no amount of Colloidal Silver can overcome, in my opinion. Give the rest of your mouth a chance by relieving it of this tooth. Don't prolong the agony any longer.
Woo hoo, Happy Birthday !! I remember when I started this thing with W ant T it was about Iodine, but clandestinely at least from my side, it wasn't about Iodine it was a Health Revolution and you can see what has happened in the past 10 years outside of this forum, much of which came from here, where things are now. See, you have to work in secret ways, to get secret things done, kinda like "Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars" I mean, the enemy does it all the time and if they didn't have any resistance, what fun would it be for them ? How boring would their jobs be ? They'd just roll everybody over and have a shitty existence. So, the Health Jedi move on, forward. Gaining strength on some fronts, pulling back on others. Many detractors initially, all were defeated, like "Moreless" or that herbal forum dude we passed up by millions of page reads, who attacked us saying our dicks would fall off, whatever. Iodine is like, a gateway supplement, once you take iodine, it leads you to other healthy things. Congratulations if you've made it this far. I feel better than ever, ten years later. Woo hoo, I don't gamble, don't do p 0 r n, don't drink much and am a fairly boring person. But I never took v1agra either and at 56 now, can't find a single grey hair on my head. Guess I'm just lucky. Iodine has been good to me. I take a gram dose about once every two months. And about 20 drops of Lugols every two weeks or so. Initially I took a lot , like others but I never did large amounts for a long time. Always made sure I had adequate selenium and vitamin C. Usually by eating sardines, they're a good source of selenium. Well, be well you all and remember - no v1agra necessary, just cut the toxins out the diet. I probably been a big dicck a lot of times on here but it was for a reason to pound thoughts into others' heads. If some want to call me a big dicck, I'm good with it, lol. Happy Birthday Iodine Forum , where's Wombat ?
Hello. I am thyroid patient,currently on Iodine protocol: 50 mg Lugol's iodine,
400 mg selenomethionine,
Zn 25 mg,
c vitamin 2000-3000 mg,
Mg citrate 1300mg.
B vitamin complex with all b vitamins RDV amount.
D vitamin 5 000 units.
1/2 spoon salt with water.
I am taking them in the morning during the breakfast and spliting Iodine throughout the day.
My thyroid hormones and antibodies are in normal range (in the middle of range). Ferritine is in the upper level of the range. My D vitamin was around 20 mg/l. I have nodules and cysts in the thyroid both side,one side bigger.
I had Sugar addiction but I am managing it so I guess Candida Overgrowth can be culprit too.
Also I am gluten and lactose sensitive. I am on very low calorie diet around 1400-1600 as when I get more calories I have issues with concentration. Managing fatigue with good rest and exercise.
Symptoms that bother me:
I have severe hair loss,scalp and hair is dry,itchy.
Time to time my thyroid feels strained and bit painful. Lump seen on the neck sometimes shrinks bit but after comes again but does not disappear.
Should I add something into my protocol, or increase doses of any companions or iodine/selenium?

Raise Vit D to 10,000 IU. Retest after 6 months. Aim for 60-100 mg/L.
Take selenomethionine separately from zinc, as they interfere with each other. You may want to take magnesium in split doses, with the larger amount at night. It peaks in serum about 3:30 a.m.
Would you say what your actual ferritin level was, with the units of measure and the range? Was there any test of serum iron? Hair loss can be from both low iron and low thyroid. Low iron could happen when it's sequestered in ferritin and not as available for use.
Be generous with how much fat you eat, modest with protein, and skimpy with carbs. Don't count calories. Let your body feel nourished and cared for. You would benefit from high-fat fishes such as salmon and sardines, including fish oils and cod liver oil. In fact, cod liver oil would give you additional Vitamins D and A. Fish oil on the inside is a blessing for skin on the outside.
Take a morning temperature before you get out of bed for 5 days or so. Best is a manual thermometer held under your tongue for 10 minutes. You want to see 97.8-98.2 F or 36.6-36.8 C. Later in the afternoon is when it's nice to see 98.6 F or 37 C.

Ferritin of 116 is perfect in my book.
Hemoglobin 13.6 g/dL for a woman is okay, while for a man would be low.
A serum iron might help you know how well your copper stores are helping to bind iron for transport to the cells. For instance, a high serum iron with a good ferritin would indicate copper needed work. You might have adequate levels of copper, but it doesn't work right if it's out of balance with zinc. Serum levels of copper and zinc work best in a ratio of copper/zinc 0.7-1.0/1.0.
Regardless, between iron and thyroid, it appears that thyroid is the more likely culprit in your hair loss.
You asked about your protocol, and I think it looks good. I wouldn't mess with it before being sure your thyroid health is being addressed optimally. I regret to say that I needed thyroid hormone after all.

Have analized my food intake vitamin and mineral vise and found that my copper daily intake is 2% of RDV, so might be extremely deficient in copper.
Have ordered it and awaiting delivery.
One thing I thought to do was to increase Iodine to 100mg, as on Iodine skin test it disappears in 2-3 hours, but a need of selenium increase to 800 mcg holds me back as it is way too high.

Please don't consider raising selenium to 800 mcg without knowing you need it. I never took more than 200 mcg, yet after several years of it my blood level was close to being too high. I stopped it for awhile and am now back on it. Soils vary considerably in their selenium content. Stay on 200 mcg and take all the Iodine you need. BTW, the skin test has no value, as Dr. Abraham explains here:
