In the modern world, our thyroids are bombarded by all types of radiation. Detoxified iodine can help protect them.To understand the relationship, one must know that iodine is a chemical element required for the production of the essential hormones produced by and concentrated in the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland actively absorbs iodine from the blood to make and release these hormones into the blood, a process regulated by a pituitary gland hormone.
Iodine deficiency can cause hypothyroidism, with symptoms such as extreme fatigue, mental slowing, depression, weight gain, low basal body temperatures and even goiters (enlargement of the thyroid). Iodine deficiency is the leading cause of preventable mental retardation that primarily develops among babies or small children lacking the element. Other health effects that may possibly be related to iodine deficiency include fibrocystic breast disease and breast and stomach cancers.
Some precautions should be observed when administering iodine; some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to it. Also, it can be mildly toxic if taken orally, especially in the presence of selenium deficiency. Too much iodine can also interfere with the balance of the thyroid hormones and cause serious health problems.
Edgar Cayce, who was referred to as the father of holistic medicine by the Journal of the American Medical Association, performed more than 9,000 “readings” of individuals’ in order to help people with a myriad of health conditions. He recommended iodine for stimulating the thyroid and protecting it from radiation. He endorsed a form of natural iodine that was processed in a specific way; this special form has been called “detoxified iodine.” The process involves electrically charging naturally occurring iodine so that the raw form is transmuted into the atomic state.
In his 30 years of research, John Voell, co-founder of Natural Awakenings, discovered that in more than 4,000 of the 9,000 readings, Cayce stated that the body can recognize and fully assimilate iodine in the atomic state. Cayce believed that sufficient amounts of the vibration of this detoxified iodine could not only adjust a dysfunctional thyroid, but also assist with a host of glandular imbalances as well as eliminating bacteria, fungi, and viruses. How many of us might be unaware we may have a dysfunctional thyroid? It was the single most recommended treatment in Cayce’s readings.
