And excess can be dangerous. Just like too much of anything can be dangerous.
2. the more intense the reaction to iodine at first, the more it is indicated.
Based on what?
as dr mark starr points out, both hypo and hyper thyroid conditions get their start with lack of iodine. iodine supplementation must be part of the cure. the adverse reactions in hyper and hashi patients are temporary.
Again, there are many causes of hypothyroidism not all involving low iodine. And I have yet to see any evidence that hyperthyroidism is caused by a lack of iodine. Again, there are different causes of hyperthyroidism including too much iodine.
there is another highly misinformed person posting on the little iodine forum and saying its taking them months to get the poison iodine out. they couldnt be farther from the truth. iodine is gone in 24 hours. all that person did is stir up the halogens and heavy metals with iodine and then stop, leaving them exposed. i have no doubt they are both miserable and clueless.
How do you know this is what was going on? What halogens specifically are being stirred up? And what heavy metals specifically?
