thyroid is the body's main storage site for iodine.
The mineral is also concentrated in the glandular
system, including the body's sweat glands. The
ovaries, breasts, prostate and the brain contain
high concentrations of iodine, and virtually every
cell in the body is dependent on this important
element. When a deficiency exists, the thyroid
competes with other storage sites and all become
depleted. An iodine deficit

Worldwide, we are
experiencing epidemic proportions of iodine deficiency,
in part due to deforestation, soil erosion, and
poor farming practices that deplete minerals from
the soil and yield iodine-deficient crops.
The role of iodine
in human nutrition is well-established - as are
its deficiency diseases and the conditions to
which its deficiency can contribute (i.e. goiter,
cretinism, hypothyroidism, etc.)
would get all their iodine from dietary sources:
kelp, seaweed, certain types of ocean fish, and
vegetables grown in iodine-rich soil. But many
ocean-bearing iodine-rich foods are now unavailable,
and agricultural farmland is increasingly iodine-deficient,
leading to reduced levels of iodine in foods.
Other areas, such
as the Great Lakes region in the U.S., are naturally
deficient in iodine -- a fact that lead to the
massive goiter outbreak in the 1930's, when 40%
of the people living in Michigan suffered from

was first added to table salt as a preventative
measure, and by 1940, the practice was in general

definition, is mostly "sodium chloride"
(what chemists call a "halide" - or
a halogen tied to a mineral, making it a "salt"

where you ingest far more chlorine, which displaces
iodine than you do the iodine itself.

the same class of elements as iodine: the "halogens"

they have just one electron missing from their
outer shell to make it inert (non-reactive). This
makes them quite readily reactive.

Our water has chlorine

To counter the effects
of iodine loss, it is recommended to do the following:
(1) Eat foods rich in iodine: food from the ocean
(fish, lobster, clams, mussels, squid, etc), radishes,
asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, rhubarb,
potatoes, peas, strawberries, mushrooms, lettuce,
bananas, cabbage, egg yolk, and onions;
(2) Take preparations known to be rich in iodine,
such as Lugol's iodine.
To Take Lugol's Iodine
standard dose (those looking for general health
purposes) would be 3 to 5 drops of Lugol's per
4 ounces of water in a glass. If treating a thyroid
problem, recommended dose would be 5 to 10 drops
in 4 ounces of water, twice daily.

Niacin (also known
as vitamin B3) is an organic compound with the
formula C6H5NO2 and, one of the essential human
nutrients. Not enough niacin in the diet can cause
nausea, skin and mouth lesions, anemia, headaches,
and tiredness. Niacin is the oldest lipid lowering
drug with unique anti-atherosclerotic property.
Chronic Niacin deficiency
leads to a disease called pellagra,
which is characterized by diarrhea, dermatitis,
and dementia, as well as Casal's necklace
lesions on the lower neck, hyper-pigmentation,
thickening of the skin, inflammation of the mouth
and tongue, digestive disturbances, amnesia, delirium
(and eventually death, if left untreated.) Common
psychiatric symptoms of niacin deficiency include
irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue,
restlessness, apathy, and depression.
The lack of niacin
may also be observed in pandemic deficiency disease
which is caused by a lack of five crucial vitamins:
niacin, vitamin C, thiamin, vitamin D and vitamin
A, and is usually found in areas of widespread
poverty and malnutrition. Niacin has been used
for over 50 years to decrease the risk of cardiovascular
events, to lower cholesterol
levels, and for preventing cardiovascular
disease in patients with diabetes Niacin is involved
in both DNA repair, and the production of steroid
hormones in the adrenal gland.
Niacin has been
in use, since 1950, for the treatment of accumulated
levels of radiation in the human body. The human
body, designed to accept (then flush) normal levels
of radiation, has been found to "stockpile"
radiation, due to the elevated levels of man-made
radiation stemming from thousands of nuclear weapon
discharge world wide. Regular intake, of even
100 mg Niacin daily, will assist the body to rid
itself of this excess radiation.
FOR NORMAL USE
dose is one 100 mg tab daily (with
food). Niacin will cause a red
flush to your skin (akin to typical sunburn),
itching and slight burning feeling after 5 to
10 minutes from ingestion. This "flushing"
will last from 10 to 30 minutes.
is 500 mg per day, but NEVER take more than you're
Here is exactly
how you progress to 500 mg daily:
Take 100 mg with
food (preferably breakfast). Within 5 to 10 minutes,
you'll feel the flush/itching coming on. This
"flush" effect will last from 5 minutes
to 15 minutes, then pass. If it's too strong for
you, drink a glass of water to dilute the niacin.
Take your dose of
niacin daily until you have no flushing effects
for a period of three
days running (in a row).
DO NOT VIOLATE
When three days
of no-effect is up, on the forth day take 200
mg of niacin. Follow the same three-day-rule for
the next increase to 300 mg, and so forth until
you reach the target dose of 500 mg.
Niacin is niacin.
Nothing else will be as medicinal as pure niacin.
You will not receive any benifit from "slow
release", "no flush", "time
release", or ANY other weak and worthless
copy of the real thing: NIACIN.
With daily use,
Niacin will reduce your cholesterol, help clean
your arterial walls, keep your blood vessels,
capillaries and veins clear of buildup, lower
your background radiation levels, help improve
your general skin tone: the effects on your general
health, of a continuous daily intake of Niacin,
is wide spread and astounding!
