Iodine Deficiency ~ Silent Epidemic!

The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency

http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2011/10/the-silent-epidemic-of-iodine-deficiency/page-01

~

Nearly 74% of normal, “healthy” adults may no longer consume enough iodine.

 You will discover iodine’s vital role in thyroid function and its link to obesity, cognitive impairment, heart disease, psychiatric disorders, and various forms of cancer.

~ Iodine can help ward off breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease.

The US recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for iodine is 150-290 micrograms (mcg) for adults, while the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine has set the tolerable upper limit at 1,100 mcg.

“Why are you chastizing me on my issues, when you know it is most likely caused by an iodine deficiency you learned about in med school?   ?!?!?!

~

These guidelines may be inadequate to address certain health conditions.

They were first established as sufficient only to prevent goiter. Daily doses for optimal health of 3,000-6,000 mcg have been used without side effects in studies of people with other iodine deficiency-related health conditions such as polycystic breast disease.

By way of comparison, the average daily Japanese consumption of iodine ranges from 5,280 to 13,800 mcg of iodine, with no harmful effects and a host of benefits. The Japanese experience is shedding new light on the importance of iodine, not only for thyroid health, but on other body functions as well. In particular, compelling evidence is emerging about the role of iodine in maintaining breast health, a major concern for millions of American women.

Symptoms of Iodine Deficiency

~ hormonal imbalances (iodine is important in the production of all hormones in the body)

~ concentration/focus problems ~ brain fog ~ dry/flaky skin ~ dry mouth/eyes ~ immune system disfunction ~ short term memory ~ acid reflux ~ chronic constipation ~ chronic parasite/candida/viral problems ~ fibrocystic breasts ~ ovarian cysts (PCOS- polycystic ovarian syndrome) ~ excess phlegm ~ hypertension ~ fatigue ~ chronic headaches/migraines ~ vaginal infections ~ hypothyroidism

O

The Importance of Iodine

It has been written that the “fundamental building blocks to health are WATER, SALT, SODA and IODINE”. Of these, iodine seems to be the least understood and the most neglected.

O

The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency

The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency

By Nancy Piccone

~

In 2008, researchers concerned about the growing threat of iodine deficiency analyzed 88 samples1 of iodized table salt—the main supply of this critical micronutrient for most people.

~

Less than half of those tested contained amounts of iodine sufficient for optimal health.

~

Coupled with the trend of reduced salt consumption, rates of iodine deficiency are now reaching epidemic levels.

~

In the developed world, iodine deficiency has increased more than fourfold over the past 40 years. Nearly 74% of normal, “healthy” adults may no longer consume enough iodine.

~

In this article, the latest data on this dangerous trend are presented. You will learn of iodine deficiency’s profound impact on overall health. You will discover iodine’s vital role in thyroid function and its link to obesity, cognitive impairment, heart disease, psychiatric disorders, and various forms of cancer.

~ Iodine can help ward off breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease.

CANDIDA (YEAST) SYMPTOMS
~
By Dr John E. Humiston, MD
Here is a list of symptoms and conditions that commonly occur in people with Candida overgrowth. Most all of these same symptoms typically improve or disappear with effective treatment for Candida.
~
Some of the symptoms listed may sound “normal,” because the Candida problem is so common in the modern world. Some are led to say, when they review this list, “Doesn’t that describe everybody?” It must be emphasized that none of these symptoms are part of normal health. When too many people around us are ill, strange symptoms may become common, but that does not make them normal. Many of the things listed — such as asthma, diabetes, epidemic obesity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ADD/ADHD, autism, panic attacks and others — were virtually non-existent (or at least much less common) before the 1970s. They became much too common as a consequence of various factors, including: widespread overuse of antibiotics starting in the 1950s; increased availability of chlorinated swimming pools; much increased use of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics in the food supply; the advent of the birth control pill; and the addition since the 1990s of barley malt into nearly every baked food (cereals, crackers, cookies) and of high-fructose corn syrup as a sweetener in beverages.

~
A person with Candida overgrowth may have only 2-3 of these symptoms, or may identify with many.
O
MENTAL ~ EMOTIONAL ~ NERVOUS SYSTEM:
~ Headaches and migraine headaches
~ Depression
~ Sleep problems — difficulty falling asleep, or waking up in the middle of the night with a mind that won’t calm down (typically between 1 and 3 am)
~ Irritability and confusion
~ Poor memory
~ Anxiety attacks, panic attacks
~ Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
~ Heart beating too fast or irregularly
~ Sexual problems — impotence or lack of desire, or excessive sexuality
~ Attention deficit, hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
~ Dizziness
~ Numbness
~ Feeling of floating or not quite being in your body
~ Indecisiveness, difficulty organizing and cleaning messy areas
O
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM:
~ Cravings for sugar, chocolate, milk, cheese, vinegar, pickles, alcohol, bread, nuts or fruit
~ “Metabolic syndrome” which includes the following: large abdomen (“beer belly”), adult-onset diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure
~ “Beer belly,” also called truncal obesity — excess weight centered around the abdomen
~ Acid reflux/GERD (heartburn)
~ Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
~ Bloating, flatulence or abdominal pain
~ Rectal itching
~ Constipation and/or diarrhea
~ Excessively thin or anorexic/bulimic
O
SKIN ~ EYES ~ HAIR:
~ Skin and nail fungal infections (current or past), including: athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, fungal toenails, ringworm, jock itch, tinea versicolor or itchy eyelids
~ Skin problems like eczema, rashes, psoriasis
~ Prematurely graying hair
~ Pupils always dilated
~ Unusually green eyes, or eye color has turned greenish
O
IMMUNE DISORDERS:
~ Asthma and allergies
~ Recurring infections — colds, ears, bladder, sinus
~ Autoimmune disease (lupus, hypothyroidism, arthritis, others)
~ Penicillin allergy
O
WHOLE BODY:
~ Fatigue
~ Muscle or joint pain, fibromyalgia
~ Cold feet, cold hands, sometimes cold nose
~ Sweating, especially at night
~ Uncomfortable at any temperature
O
WOMEN’s HEALTH ISSUES:
~ Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
~ Endometriosis (chronic pelvic pain)
~ Infertility (female), some miscarriages, toxemia of pregnancy (preeclampsia)
O
SYMPTOMS SEEN PARTICULARLY IN CHILDREN ~ up to about 8 years old:
~ Early allergy to foods like milk
~ Infections as a baby
~ Child had or has frequent ear infections, tonsillitis, strep throat or bladder infections, especially if these infections were treated with antibiotics
~ Cravings for milk, cheese, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, or peanut butter
~ Asthma
~ “Drama king” or “drama queen” — complains quite vocally and often
~ Poor sleep patterns — difficulty going to sleep, sleeps too lightly or has frequent nightmares, and wakes up too early (or sometimes too late)
~ Too thin or overweight
~ Attention deficit with or without hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
~ Aggressive, poor social interactions, can’t stop moving, frequent fights or arguments, frequent crying
~ Autism
~ Pale complexion, dark circles under the eyes
O
Two points should be understood with regard to the above list of signs and symptoms of Candida overgrowth. First, while all of the symptoms listed are definitely seen in Candida patients and evidence indicates Candida causes or strongly contributes to the development of these problems, there are other contributing factors that can also bring about some of these problems (such as mercury or other metal toxicity, consistent excess electromagnetic field exposure, underlying viral infections, petrochemical exposure, etc.). Second, treatment for Candida alone will usually bring about significant improvement in these symptoms, but will not be adequate in all cases to restore health. Often additional treatments aimed at improving liver, adrenal or thyroid function, or correcting immune and allergic problems, are necessary to regain health.

~
BY: The clinical facts and observations concerning Candida overgrowth presented here come from the research and clinical experience of John E. Humiston, M.D., a family practice physician who has worked with over a thousand Candida patients.

Yeast vs Medical World

Posted in FUNGAL, MEDICINE TODAY, THE AMERICAN PARASITE tagged , , , , , , , , , at 5:07 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Immense “thank you” to Dr John E. Humiston, MD for explaining how doctors are trained and why they do not know much about numerous medical issues…
~ ~ ~
http://candidamd.com/candida/doctors.html

Candida and the Medical Profession

Why don’t all doctors know about Candida? Let me address this question from my own personal professional experience. In my training in medical school and then in family practice, we were taught that Candida can become widespread and damaging only in those patients who are severely compromised, such as terminal cancer, liver transplant or AIDS patients. This simply isn’t true. Many clinicians with experience in Candida treatment estimate that the majority of people in industrialized countries suffer from excess yeast.

~
What is preventing Candida from being recognized? Here are some factors:
The symptoms of Candida overgrowth develop slowly as a changing picture over years, so causes and effects are not obvious if one is not trained to look for them. In medicine, we are too often guilty of seeking oversimplified explanations for diseases (for example, asthma is treated as if it were just an inflammatory disease, depression is treated as if it were just a disorder in neurotransmitters, allergy is treated as if it were simply a predisposed genetic condition), rather than looking deeper for the overall disorder in the body that is causing the disease. This oversimplified approach to disease does not help the physician understand a disease like Candida overgrowth, which has subtle symptoms in multiple organ systems that worsen very gradually. To the physician who is unfamiliar with Candida, its broad array of symptoms will seem like a group of totally unrelated problems.

~
Candida is so common that it’s likely your own doctor has it. It’s hard to pin down what’s wrong with your patients when you yourself may be suffering with similar things but can’t figure out what the cause is. Also, it’s harder to distinguish an illness as truly abnormal when so many people have it and the illness doesn’t have any single definite identifying symptom.

~
There are no reliable lab tests to diagnose Candida. Because yeast invade tissues of the body and actually form branches among and around cells (rather than floating around loosely in the blood or other areas), culture tests, tissue collections and blood or urine tests are not accurate enough to gauge the extent of disease Candida may be causing. However, because the symptoms and signs of Candida are predictable, one can fairly accurately determine if a person has Candida overgrowth by using the lists of tell-tale risk factors and symptoms listed above. http://candidamd.com/candida/symptoms.html …. Medical professionals use this same type of approach — called “clinical diagnosis” — to diagnosis illnesses such as migraine headaches, Parkinson’s disease, depression and many other illnesses for which there is no single definitive lab test.

~
Candida is very hard to kill, and almost none of the treatments work well. This is equally true for prescription medicines, over-the-counter remedies and natural medicines. Because most clinicians do not know an effective treatment, there is little enthusiasm about promoting knowledge of Candida. This problem is compounded by the fact that our medical culture has become very skewed towards prescription drug treatment, rather than towards restoring normal physiology. There is even an incorrect notion among many doctors and patients that the only really effective medications for any illness are prescription medications. The reality is that there are certain medicinal molecules which are found in nature (usually in plants) that can’t be synthesized or successfully altered in a laboratory. For certain illnesses, these natural compounds work better than any current prescription medicines.

~
Similar to the point just made, modern medical practice has become focused on symptom treatment, rather than correction of underlying abnormalities. One can treat the symptoms of Candida forever, but major improvement never comes until the fungus is killed.

~
Within the medical profession, many doctors fear doing something different from what other doctors do. And treating Candida is clearly different. This fear stifles innovation, the drive to try something new in the face of a significant problem that is not being solved with current methods.
~
There is a lack of true progress in medical knowledge in general, making it more difficult for doctors to find relevant information on Candida. The large volume of published studies appearing every month in medical journals gives the impression that important medical discoveries are indeed occurring. In actuality, however, most of those studies are statistical comparisons of the action of patented synthetic drugs, sponsored by hopeful drug manufacturers. The results of these studies are habitually unimpressive. Very little is published that is true scientific medical progress. Further, major medical studies are published in journals which usually carry large advertisements from drug manufacturers for which the journal publishers have collected large sums of money. This puts the journal editors in a position where they are clearly no longer able to be objective in what they choose to publish (for example, just one study showing red yeast rice to be nearly as effective in lowering cholesterol as the much more expensive and side effect-laden statins would decimate the advertising income of a major medical journal).

~
Treating Candida has to do with diet problems and diet change, and some people mistakenly feel that changing their way of eating would be too hard or that they would miss certain foods too much. (This sentiment is only expressed by people who are thinking about doing a Candida program, or by those who have tried an ineffective program. People who have done the Candida program presented here almost never feel that way.)
