Thyroid Repair & Protection

4 oz bottle


2% Iodine
4% Potassium Iodide
94% Distilled Water

Lugol’s Iodine was first developed by the French physician, Dr. Jean Lugol, in 1829. It was a transparent brown liquid consisting of potassium iodide, iodine and distilled water.

Lugol’s proved an effective bactericide and fungicide and, was in fact (for the better part of a century), a common antiseptic.

Historically speaking, Lugol’s has long been traditionally used to soothe the discomfort of upset stomach due to food poisoning, and kills the salmonella bacteria on contact.

Principally known for its job in proper metabolism and thyroid function, iodine is also necessary for a healthy immune system and has many therapeutic benefits including antibacterial, antiparasitic, antiviral and anticancer properties.

The 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 puts one at risk for a variety of conditions and illnesses, including cancer.

Iodine is also essential for children's growth and development, and a deficiency in pregnant women is the primary cause of preventable mental retardation and brain damage, as disclosed by the World Health Organization.

The thyroid requires iodine to produce its hormones and to regulate the body's metabolism.

Hypothyroidism is indicated by a low metabolic rate. Hypothyroidism is common in an iodine deficient state. Proper iodine supplementation often results in curing or improving the hypothyroid condition. Some of the many symptoms that indicate a hypothyroid state include:

Breasts Cysts
Breast Cancer
Brittle nails
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Cold hands and feet
Dry skin
Elevated cholesterol
Inability to concentrate
Mental Retardation in children
Menstrual irregularities
Muscle cramps/weakness
Poor memory
Puffy eyes
Thyroid Disease
Water Disinfectant
Weight gain.

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.)

Optimally, people 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 goiter.

In 1924, iodine was first added to table salt as a preventative measure, and by 1940, the practice was in general consumer use.

Table salt, by definition, is mostly "sodium chloride" (what chemists call a "halide" - or a halogen tied to a mineral, making it a "salt" of a halogen). The use of table salt as a delivery vehicle for iodine ironically presents a situation where you ingest far more chlorine, which displaces iodine than you do the iodine itself.

Chlorine, which has been used extensively since 1904 to control microbes in public drinking water, belongs to the same class of elements as iodine: the "halogens" - or elements that are one step removed from the "inert elements" (or gases) because they have just one electron missing from their outer shell to make it inert (non-reactive). This makes them quite readily reactive.

Chlorine, fluorine (fluoride), and bromine can displace iodine in our body.

Our water has chlorine and fluoride in it, and modern breads use bromine as a raising agent.

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.

How To Take Lugol's Iodine

A 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.

You know your body better than anyone else, so pay attention to the effects. If you develop diarrhea, nausea, headaches, skin rash, or any other symptom that you could attribute to taking Logul's Iodine, either stop taking Logul's or cut back the amount you're taking.

Lugol's Iodine Other Uses

Realize that this IS iodine, so can stain skin, clothes, counter tops, etc.
# Use as a drinking/cooking/bathing water disinfectant. Two drops per quart will kill all pathogen in water.

# Swimming pools, hot tub, jacuzzi. Use Lugol's Iodine instead of chlorine.
# As wound treatment. Put full strength on cuts.
# In a douche. 10 drops in quart of lukewarm water.
# As a "non-healing wound" treatment. 10 drops per 8 ounces of water - flush wound hourly.
# Lugol's Iodine is used as a stain to highlight slide specimens for microscopic viewing.

Lugol's Iodine is an antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic germicide, used by both medical and veterinary doctors.

In a landmark decision on Friday, Jan. 15, 1999, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that
the health claim rules imposed by the FDA unconstitutional and in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act.
The court instructed the FDA to allow the use of disclaimers on labels rather than to suppress these claims outright.
The court further held prohibiting nutrient disease relationship claims invalid under the first Amendment to the Constitution.
