Iodine Deficiency Risk Factors

Posted in FYI, NUTRIENTS, SILENT ISSUES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:18 pm by PCOSLady

RISK FACTORS ~ May Lead To Iodine Deficiency

~

Following is a list of potential risk factors that may lead to iodine deficiency:

  1. Low dietary iodine
  2. Selenium deficiency
  3. Pregnancy
  4. Exposure to radiation
  5. Increased intake/plasma levels of goitrogens, such as calcium
  6. Gender (higher occurrence in women)
  7. Smoking tobacco
  8. Alcohol (reduced prevalence in users)
  9. Oral contraceptives (reduced prevalence in users)
  10. Perchlorates
  11. Thiocyanates
  12. Age (for different types of iodine deficiency at different ages)

~

In the U.S., the use of iodine has decreased over concerns of overdoses since mid-20th century, and the iodine antagonists bromine, perchlorate and fluoride have become more ubiquitous. In particular, around 1980 the practice of using potassium iodate as dough conditioner in bread and baked goods was gradually replaced by the use of other conditioning agents such as bromide .

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.

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.

O

Recommended usage to eliminate iodine deficiency:

  • ~ Place 1-2 drops of iodine on the skin each day.
  • ~ Keep an eye on how long the iodine patch takes to disappear each day – the amount of ~ time it takes to disappear should increase each day.
  • ~ 1-2 drops may not be enough if you do not notice a significant improvement in the ~ time it takes the iodine to fade then you may need to take more.
  • ~ Just work up slowly to a maximum of 3-5 drops each day if necessary.
  • ~ Do not increase by more than 1 drop per day.

O

Conditions Treated With Iodine:

~ ADD ~ ADHD ~ Asthma ~ Atheroscerosis ~ Fibrocystic Breast Disease ~ Cancer ~ COPD ~ Diabetes ~ Excess Mucus Production ~ Hemorroids ~ Headaches ~ Hypertension Infections ~ Keloids ~ Liver Diseases ~ PCOS (Ovarian Cysts) ~ Parotid Duct Stones ~ ACNE (Sebaceous Cysts) ~ Thyroid Disorders (hypo, autoimmune and cancers)

The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency

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

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.

MEDICAL WAYS vs NATURAL HEALING
~
i am exhausted. i got 5 hours sleep in 72 even before i got here. i must get the first part of this story told before it gets lost.

the first two days were a nightmare. i came the minute i got word that my friend bill was in trouble. the doctors were saying that he would not leave the hospital(alive). his daughter told me in her email that he had requested me and that it was bad. i knew that if he was asking for me, it must have been. bill is closer to me than a brother in many ways. it is interesting that i posted the song by the great bessie griffin that i did a few days earlier, because in many ways he is my mother and my father, my sister and my brother, my mentor and my best friend.

back to the first two days. i observed while the very best in modern medicine fumbled and bumbled their way in the dark. i have never seen a more ignorant and narrowminded profession in my life. robert o becker said it best in his classic work “the body electric” when he said, “medical biology is afflicted with a kind of tunnel vision.” boy is it ever.

i watched as they tried to treat an illness that they knew had internal causes by using external mechanisms. the standard treatment for copd is to leave the patient to their own devices until they can no longer breathe on their own and then put them on a machine to breath for them. once this occurs, they may or may not ever get off the machines until they expire. apparently there are many in this country who are in facilities living on a respirator, a prison that i cannot imagine is preferable to death. my friend feels the same way.

once they got his gasses turned around, they took him off the inubator and onto a mask called a c-pap. this machine assists in the breathing and introduces higher than normal levels of oxygen at the same time. usually the idea is not so much oxygenating the blood, but the problem is the release of co2. as the co2 builds up in the blood, this creates an acidifying effect. as the pH goes lower, less and less co2 can be released. the acid pH effects the ease with which the gradient of oxygen can displace the co2. the patient snowballs and soon can no longer stop the rise of co2 in the blood which results in expiration. the person is chemically drowning.

the mechanical means by which they try to treat this is no different than sticking a plug in ones butt to stop diarrhea. sooner of later, something has to give.

i kept listening intently as the high paid and barely available doctor would come in and explain what was going on and never once offer a solution that would correct the problem, even when asked. the co2 rising, the diaphram muscle being exhausted and unable to work as hard, the lungs less elastic than before – all the while all of these things got worse. just let the machine do it.

bill is a patient man. he went with the flow and accepted his fate as things went along. however, he was not going to be confined to a machine with no way to communicate. as he tried to move away from this confinement, the doctor got more doom and gloom and began to talk of dying.

when i first got there, they got the tube out of him and put the mask on. no longer being fed by a tube into his stomach, he wanted to eat. i was aghast at the meal they sent him. it was death on four wheels. i watched him eat mashed potatoes and turkey and gravey and roll with 2% milk and a small salad. he seemed to be feeling better and the doctor was in general agreement with his quest to go home. she said he might not make it out of the hospital once he tried to move about. he did seem to get worse after his meal. i left that evening with him in good spirits and doing fairly well. the next morning he was in crises again.

the next day went the same way. the more he was on the c-pap, the better his gasses got and he was able to take the mask off and eat again that evening. again, it was the biggest acid forming meal i had ever seen, and again he went downhill through the night. the next morning everyone was summoned in and he was moved to a private room where as many as wanted could visit. his wife and he signed a DNR that morning just to get them to take him out of CCU. they were no longer drawing blood gasses. he was on his own. we were all told he would not make it through the day. medical science was more than willing to stand by and watch this man die without lifting a finger. well, i wasnt.

late yesterday i had discussed with bill what i saw based upon the information the doctor had given us. i systematically went throught he list of all the difficulties he was having and suggested a treatment for each. magnesium peroxide for his diaphram to relax the muscle to it could rest when not working and get oxygen closer to this starved muscle. cayenne to help normalize the blood. vitamin C for the high oxygen levels, both as an antioxidant and as a detoxifier of the lungs. iodine for its oxidizing effects where oxygen had not been able to get and as a mucolytic and antifungal. amazingly, iodine also works as an antioxidant as well and helps balance pH. oregano oil to help clear the lungs and address any parasites that may be present. and the air restore lobelia and mullien tincture from MH. he said to go ahead and get these things.

but this morning he was at deaths door according to his doctor and we all just rushed over. and got him moved into his private room to die. they only expect people to leave this area on a gurney to the morgue.

like a fool i did not bring anything with me. logistics has been tough but we managed to get out of there while they prepared to take him out of CCU. i rushed back to the house and got the air restore, the iodine, the oregano oil, and picked up a cheap ass 40Khu cayenne at the grocery store. a better selection would have to follow later.

when i got back he was in his new room. i told bill if we could turn this pH thing around we could get him out of the hospital and go to work on the rest and on to the healing stage which would include even more things to try. i gave him a capsule of the cayenne and a capsule with one drop of oregano oil in it. in some orange juice, i gave him four drops of wilsons iodine solution, four drops of magnascent iodine and two dropperfulls of air restore.

the turn around was almost immediate. he kept his mask off longer, gained strength and coordination, his voice got stronger, he was more animated, he laughed a lot, and some kind of cloudy yucky substance began to flow out of his urinary cathater. this was an added bonus for me to see. unfortunately the DNR arrangements meant there were no more blood gasses drawn for testing so i dont know what his co2 was doing. but i had a good guess.

you see, i had told him earlier that he had an infection. the doctor was saying there was no infection to fight and he was already being given prohylaxic antibiotics. i knew he had an infection. i figured it was candida or a mycoplasm or both, both of which were in his lungs.

then i told him there was no way he could eat that crap again and expect to live. we planned his evening meal and had it cooked at home by his son who brought it over. it was salad with olive oil and vinegar, whitefish and green beans. orange juice to drink. not perfect but not that other crap. at the meal, he recieved two cayenne, two drops of oregano oil, four more drops of iodine, two dropperfuls of magnascent and four dopperfulls of air restore.

by the time i left tonight he was still improving, still excreting a nasty cloud from his cathater, and having his oxygen levels adjusted down by a respiratory specialist. he is coming home tomorrow, lord willing, and i see nothing but improvement for him once we finish shopping at the health food store.

i fully intend to see this through and if he wants, i think he can be functioning at a level above what he was at even six months ago. he said he had about six more months of work on his book. i think he can have that and more if he wants.

i dont want to get too excited, but i did have one other interesting interchange with his doctor in passing. i asked her if she was surprised(as if i couldnt tell), and she said yes. you dont tell family to gather for a death from as far away as louisiana and have the patient walk out of the hospital the next day. it just aint possible. or is it?

Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)

Posted in WAKE UP FYI tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:15 pm by PCOSLady

Story that created my post on BVO:
~
Teen Sarah Kavanagh is making headlines after raising questions about the safety of an ingredient in Gatorade. “TODAY” reports she noticed brominated vegetable oil, or BVO, on the ingredient label. She Googled it and was shocked to find out what it was. In extreme cases, BVO has been found to cause convulsions and heart beat malfunction. Fox News reports Gatorade will release BVO-free versions of the drinks. BVO is banned in other countries, including Japan, India, and parts of Europe.

What is BROMINATED VEGETABLE OIL?
http://whatisthatingredient.com/ingredient.php?id=65
~
Mountain Dew has it!
Gatorade did have it! (Pepsi removed it)
~ ~ ~
http://www.nutrition411.com/education-materials/miscellaneous-topics/item/2306-brominated-vegetable-oil-bvo
~
Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)
~
Manufacturers can legally add brominated vegetable oil (BVO) to citrus-flavored beverages in the United States and Canada in controlled amounts (no more than 15 parts per million (ppm) by weight). However, BVO is banned in more than 100 countries. The US Food and Drug Administration classifies it as “suspect.” In 1990, the United Kingdom banned bromate in bread, and in 1994, Canada did the same. Brazil also recently outlawed bromide in flour products.
~
Bromine is extracted from sea water and is deadly in either liquid or vapor form. Bromines are endocrine disruptors and are part of the halide family of elements, which also includes fluorine, chlorine, and iodine. If you are exposed to a lot of bromine, the body cannot retain iodine as it should. According to some experts, this iodine deficiency causes an increased risk for cancers of the breast, thyroid gland, ovary, and prostate.
~
Symptoms of bromine toxicity
~
Bromine is a central nervous system depressant and can lead to psychological symptoms, such as acute paranoia. It is estimated that no less than 20% of all hospital admissions for acute paranoid schizophrenia between 1920 and 1960 actually were misdiagnosed brominism. Until 1975, bromine was used in sedatives.
~
Other symptoms of bromine toxicity include:
~
~ Skin rashes
~ Severe acne
~ Loss of appetite
~ Stomach pain
~ Fatigue
~ A metallic taste in the mouth
~ Cardiac arrhythmia
~
Where bromine is found
~
Bromine is found in:
~
~ Pesticides
~ Plastics
~ Bakery goods (used in flour as a “dough conditioner” called potassium bromate)
~ Soft drinks (including Mountain Dew®, Gatorade®, Sun Drop®, Squirt®, Fresca®, and other citrus-flavored sodas) in the form of BVO
~ Certain medications, including some inhalers and nasal sprays
~ Toothpastes
~ Mouthwashes
~ Hair dyes
~ Textile dyes
~ Automobiles
~ Fire retardants

Soft Drinks and Sports Drinks: Would You Drink Flame Retardant?
~
http://wellnessandequality.com/2012/01/06/before-you-drink-soft-drinks-and-sports-drinks-would-you-drink-flame-retardant/
~
Here are some alternatives to consider:
~
Need your caffeine fix? Brew a cup of organic coffee. (Yes, tea is probably healthier than coffee, but if you’re used to soft drinks, the level of caffeine in coffee will give you a more comparable caffeine kick.)
~
Like the sweet taste of sports drinks? Add a splash of 100% fruit juice to your good old H20.
~
Do you prefer drinks with carbonation? Add carbonated water to your 100% fruit juice.
~
Worried about electrolyte balance? Although electrolyte balance may become important in extreme cases (marathons, ultramarathons, Ironman competitions, etc.), many sports drinks don’t have the appropriate ratio of electrolytes to effect levels of electrolytes anyway. Good news: Your body is designed to balance its own electrolyte levels. In fact, some of the so-called “performance boost” athletes find from sports drinks may come from the brain’s response to the taste of sugar. If you’re an extreme athlete, consult with your coach, but remember, humans got along just fine before Gatorade.
~
Just can’t give up sweetened drinks? At the very least, check the label. Don’t buy drinks with brominated vegetable oil (or BVO) listed as an ingredient. Even better, choose all-natural and organic drink brands.
~
Drinks to Avoid: Mountain Dew, Squirt, Fanta Orange, Sunkist Pineapple, Gatorade Thirst Quencher Orange, Powerade Strawberry Lemonade and Fresca Original Citrus.

Dr Flechas’ Research Findings

PCOS Lady:
After reading his findings you will truly understand much more about your conditions… You will know the path to try and why…

DR JORGE FLECHAS


~
JORGE FLECHAS, M.D., M.P.H. born in Puerto Rico, received his Medical Doctorate Degree and Masters in Public Health at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. He completed his Family Practice Residency at Florida Hospital in Orlando, Florida.
~
Dr. Flechas over the years has published articles in the fields of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome. Lately, he has been involved in research in the field of iodine deficiency, which has been associated with fibrocystic breast disease, ovarian cysts, breast cancer, thyroid goiter and hypothyroidism. Recent work in the field of iodine deficiency has shown that replacement therapy decreases the risk of breast cancer and promotes the reversal of fibrocystic breast disease.
~
It has been thought that iodine deficiency only manifests as hypothyroidism. Work done by many researchers over the last few years has shown that iodine is utilized by many different sections of the body. Twenty percent of all of the iodine sits in the human skin. A lack of iodine in the skin manifests as very dry skin and skin that does not sweat when an individual becomes hot. In newborn children iodine is responsible for the development of the babies’ I.Q. Recent research shows iodine deficiency is felt to be the source of attention deficit disorder in children.
~
Iodine is utilized by every hormone receptor in the body. The absence of iodine causes a hormonal dysfunction that can be seen with practically every hormone inside the body. Dr. Flechas has recently been able to show that patients with insulin resistant diabetes have a partial to full remission of their illness in the presence of taking iodine. Iodine deficiency is also felt to be the source of ovarian cysts. With iodine replacement therapy the cysts disappear and women have stopped having ovarian cysts.
~
Dr. Flechas with the help of Dr. Guy Abraham, GYN/Endocrinologist from Torrance, California has been able to develop an iodine testing laboratory. Dr. Flechas is now the Director of that laboratory. Iodine deficiency can now be measured using the Iodine Loading Test. Kits for doing this testing can be ordered from 1-877-900-5556. The test is available through FFP Laboratories. Dr. Flechas can be reached at his Flechas Family Practice in Henderson, North Carolina by phone 828-684-3233, fax 828-684-3253. and website www.helpmythyroid.com. Articles concerning iodine deficiency have been published and are available via his website.

Symptoms:
~
~ anemia – anemia means a reduced number of red blood cells in the blood and is revealed on screening blood work as a reduced number of red blood cells (reduced RBC count and/or reduced hematocrit) In this type of anemia, the red blood cells are often microcytic (meaning the cells are smaller, which shows on bloodwork as a reduced “MCV”) and/or hypo chromic (meaning the cells have low hemoglobin content per cell, which shows on bloodwork as a low “MCHC” or “MCH”) Often the MCV and MCH/MCHC values begin to fall before the actual anemia begins to develop; these changes represent the body’s final attempts to continue producing red blood cells without an adequate supply of iron.

Iodine (the good and dificiencies)

Posted in MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:48 pm by PCOSLady

Iodine
~
Iodine is a chemical element found in trace amounts in humans and is vital to the function of the thyroid gland. The function of iodine in the body is in the synthesis of thyroid hormones: thyronine T4 and triiodothyronine T3, which aid in growth and development.
~
Thyroid hormones stimulate basal rate of metabolism, oxygen consumption and heat production. Most of your body’s organ symptoms are directly or indirectly influenced by thyroid hormones.
~
Iodine Deficiency Symptoms
~
What is iodine deficiency?
Iodine is an element that is needed for the production of thyroid hormone. The body does not make iodine, so it is an essential part of your diet. Iodine is found in various foods.
~
Common symptoms that can occur with prolonged iodine deficiency include:

~
~ Constipation
~ Depressed mood
~ Dry skin
~ Fatigue
~ Goiter (enlargement of the thyroid, creating a mass in the neck)
~ Increased sensitivity to cold
~ Menstrual cycle abnormalities
~ Protrusion of the eyes
~ Thickening of the skin
~ Thinning and brittleness of the hair and nails
~ Unintended weight gain
~ Weakness
~
Serious symptoms that might indicate a life-threatening condition,
In some cases, iodine deficiency can be life threatening. Seek immediate medical care (call 911) if you, or someone you are with, have any of these life-threatening symptoms including:
~
~ Being a danger to oneself or others, including threatening, irrational or suicidal behavior
~ Bleeding while pregnant
~ Change in level of consciousness or alertness, such as passing out or unresponsiveness
