This was briefly discussed somewhere but i cant find where it is

Years ago an llmd told me i should take iodine. He even gave me a book to read about why

I couldnt do it even tho i reallyvwanted to cuz it made my reflux so bad

Recently someone on here suggested i needed iodine cuz of my current sx. I explained i couldnt take it cuz of reflux and they were wondering if it could be taken topically

I was tesearching how to deal with postmenopausal breast pain and a doc has her patients use topical iodine to adjust hormones and help pain

You are supposed to buy over the counter iodine and paint a quarter size spot on the breast for a month or until you see the brown spot 24 hrs after you put it on

She says she doesnt know why it works but it does

Imexcited about being able to do this because maybe it will

help more problems than the breast pain

Her name is marcelle pick if yo want to look it up


I am researching post menopausal breast pain and a doc is recommending topical iodine to

It is a good idea to get our minerals in foods when we can.

Just be careful if you eat seaweed. It has its own natural MSG (glutamate acid / glutamate) and can be very excitatory in nature. So, small amount and earlier in the day, not with dinner as it could keep you awake at night.

I don't think this applies to you but anyone with seizures, anxiety or panic attacks should avoid seaweeds due to its excitatory nature.

I was looking for iodine drops and found this article at Mercola's site. Good reference as to Why dose matters so much and why not to exceed

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/29/iodine-deficiency-risk.aspx

12.5 mg daily

scroll down to see discussion on how much, best sources, etc. A different source / brand may work better for you than what you've tried in the past.

I've taken one that has never bothered me with reflux at all. I forget the brand as I stopped it.

Back with that in a minute.

Be sure to get: “Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It” - by David Brownstein, MD

some more detail

Iodine Dosages

- by Dr Sircus on November 15, 2009

A link in this article goes right to one of the top brands:

http://www.altcancer.com/lugols.htm

Lugol's Iodine (drops)

With the kind of dropper they have, you could better determine the dose. "paint a quarter size spot" sounds like you could overdose on iodine unless you know exactly the dosage.

It might be hard to know on your skin how much you would absorb but it could be all of it.

Would sublingually work? Hold it in your mouth for a while, with certain foods, etc. That way, it may have a better systemic influence.

I hope you find the exact article you seek. In the meantime, the links above may be of help. Ultimately, it would be good to consult a naturopathic doctor about this.

Tori Hudson, ND - her website and books (she is an ND expert & national speaker on the topic of women's health). Just Google her name for a start.

I've read that Iodine supplementation needs to be balanced with Selenium (the thyroid needs both).

I use Tri-Quench (iodine supplement) topically and it seems to help my energy level when I remember to put a drop on my wrist early in the morning.
