Iodine and Lugol’s Solution
The importance of iodine to our body’s health cannot be overestimated. In addition to expediting normal thyroid function, iodine works as the immune system’s bug killer, both inside and outside the body. The parts of the body that are exposed to the outside world have iodine levels .30 times that found in the blood. Years ago parents routinely put
tincture of iodine on their children’s wounds. Today we know that having optimal levels of iodine in their systems can help people avoid infections and prevent chronic conditions.
What is the best way to ensure this, since people in the U.S. tends to be iodine deficient? Taking iodine in pill form can kill all of the good
bacteria in the gut. That means that if you take iodine pills you will solve one set of problems but, in the process, create another (good bacteria
should be protected, not eliminated). A far better means of increasing your iodine level is by dosing it through the skin. This can be done by spraying Lugol’s solution (also known as Lugol’s iodine) on the skin each morning after showering. Be sure to dry this water-based solution before dressing as it will stain clothing. (Use a hairdryer on the application site.)
Lugols’ solution was first made in 1829 by a French physician named J.G.A. Lugol. It consists of elemental iodine and potassium iodide dissolved in water. It is safe to drink. In fact, it is used for emergency disinfection of
drinking water. Be sure to use only Lugol’s in this manner, not a tincture of iodine because the tincture is made with alcohol and is toxic if
taken internally. Lugol’s is absorbed into the body according to need. If a person is iodine deficient, his or her body will absorb the Lugol’s gradually. Within 24 hours the stain from the solution will disappear. Lugol’s should be applied daily until it is no longer absorbed into the body. At that point your body is telling you that you have enough in your system, and you only need to apply it once per week thereafter for maintenance.
Drinking Lugol’s is an excellent treatment for food poisoning because it kills bacteria. It will even inactivate snake venoms and help prevent allergies. (Iodine inactivates large foreign proteins that are ingested, thus preventing them from becoming allergens.)
Iodine: Vital for Health
Iodine plays a critical role in the health of people of all ages— even before they are born. Fetal iodine levels are five times that of an expectant mother. If the expectant mother’s levels of iodine are too low, miscarriage, birth defects, failure to thrive once the baby is born, and mental retardation can result. It is very important for women who will become pregnant to protect their levels of iodine.
Iodine deficiency is the leading cause of intellectual impairment in the world. (What does this say about the increasing rates of ADD and ADHD in our society?) Hypothyroidism is also the leading cause of violent behavior in the world.

Another Cause of Hypothyroidism: Fluoride
According to Mark Starr, M.D., author of Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic, up to 0% of Americans have undiagnosed hypothyroidism. He says this is the reason for our widespread and growing problems with mental and physical health. Starr believes the primary cause for this epidemic is the presence of fluoride in our water and dental products. He maintains the problem can be treated easily and inexpensively. The first step is to stop exposure to fluoride. Of course, most doctors will not give this advice to patients. Why do they overlook such a dangerous link? To find out, let’s take a look at the way the thyroid gland works.
The Thyroid Gland and Metabolism
Located in the front part of the neck, tucked around the windpipe, the thyroid gland’s job is to convert iodine into hormones that control the cell’s mechanism for changing raw materials into useable energy. This process is called metabolism. The thyroid gland works by combining iodine (thyroid cells are the only cells in the body that can absorb iodine) with an amino acid to produce hormones. The thyroid hormones are then released
into the bloodstream and transported throughout the body. When the level of thyroid hormones drops too low, the pituitary gland steps in by producing thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), which in turn pushes the thyroid gland to start producing more thyroid hormones.
The most active form of thyroid hormone is known as T3. It is responsible for signaling all the cells in the body that they need to get busy and do their work. If T3 is not produced, the signals aren’t transmitted and the cells don’t function as they should. In the brain, for example, a lack of T3 decreases the level of serotonin, the “feel good hormone” we rely upon for emotional well being. If T3 is not available, serotonin levels drop and
we become depressed and anxious.
Testing For Thyroid Deficiency
When a doctor decides to check the function of the thyroid gland, he or she begins by ordering blood tests that measure levels of TSH, T3, and another thyroid hormone called T4. While T4 is less active in the metabolism process than T3, it nonetheless plays an important role. Frequently the results of these tests fall within a normal range. So patients are told they are fine and sent on their way.
But the tests may not be accurate because iodine is a halogen, a class of non-metal elements that include fluoride, chlorine, bromine, and astadine. The problem in this scenario is that fluoride is a bully. Whenever an atom of fluoride is present along with an atom of any other halogen, the fluoride will push the other halogen aside and take its place. Normal thyroid hormone is made up of an atom of tyrosine surrounded by four
atoms of iodine. When fluoride is present, it displaces the iodine. The result is a substance that looks normal in lab tests, but doesn’t work properly in the body.
And thanks to the widespread fluoridation of our water and its inclusion in so many dental products and treatments, most Americans are exposed to fluoride on a continuing basis. This is why hypothyroidism is such a problem in our culture.
The seriousness of this situation is compounded by the fact that once
fluoride has been introduced into the body, simply eliminating it and adding more iodine won’t be enough to make things right. Researchers have
discovered that even low doses of sodium fluoride permanently destroy
the thyroid gland. Most people who have been exposed to fluoride will
require permanent supplemental thyroid hormone. In the U.S., this means seeing a doctor and getting a prescription.
Beyond Blood Tests: Diagnosing
Hypothyroidism at Home Blood tests have repeatedly proven to be unreliable in diagnosing hypothyroidism. But there are other ways of finding out about the efficiency of your thyroid gland. One of the best is measuring the basal body temperature, which is the body’s temperature while it is at rest, before any activity has started. You do this by putting a thermometer at your bedside and taking your temperature first thing in the morning. Continue for several days to make sure of accuracy.
One caution: Many thermometers are not sensitive enough to provide an
accurate diagnosis. That’s why many doctors and hospitals rely upon
temporal artery thermometers. These thermometers work by placing a sensor in the center of the forehead and gently sliding it on a line over the top of the eyebrow to the hairline. If you find that your temperature is below 97.6 de- grees, you have type 2 hypothyroidism.
If your temperature is below 96 degrees, you will need to take thyroid hormone, which is only available by prescription from a doctor.
The premise is that many modern day medicines work on the basis that they treat the symptoms and not the cause, but contained within The Lost Book of Remedies are a number of tinctures and tonics made from plants and leaves that will treat the cause of the illness, thus eradicating the disease altogether.
The book is a direct copy of the little notebook carried around by the author’s grandfather when treating his patients. However, the illustrations of the plants have been updated to photographs so that they are easier for you to identify.
Additional Causes of Hypothroidism:
Estrogen dominance caused by soy products, petrochemicals, fuel exhaust we breathe, estrogenic hormones in meat and chickens, plastics, propylene
glycol (an ingredient in deodorants), sodium laurel sulphate in toothpaste and ointments, herbicides, and pesticides. These potent
estrogenic substances block the production of thyroid hormone and greatly
magnify the incidence of estrogen-dependent cancers. Researchers have found that virtually all males and females in developed nations have estrogen dominance, which occurs when there is more estrogen in a person’s system than progesterone.
Antibiotics, chlorine from our water purification systems, fluoride, and
NSAID drugs used for arthritis kill healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract.
- This results in an overgrowth in the intestines of Candida, fungus, mycoplasma, and anaerobic bacteria (yeast syndrome). These dangerous organisms release powerful neurotoxic substances into the bloodstream that damage the hypothalamus, often resulting in multiple endocrine disorders including underactivity of the thyroid gland.
- Mercury that is released from dental amalgams is toxic to the thyroid gland.
Selenium deficiency is related to lack of trace minerals in our soil. Proper
conversion of precursors into thyroid hormone depends on a selenium- containing enzyme that is, unfortunately, lacking for most of us.
Diagnostic x-rays of teeth, neck, and spine injure the thyroid gland.
Perchlorates widely found in drinking water slow the production of thyroid
hormone by blocking the re-uptake of iodine. Perchlorates are salts derived
from perchloric acid. They occur both naturally and through manufacturing and have been used as a medicine for over 50 years to treat hyperthyroidism, which occurs when they thyroid gland is too active.
- Levels above 0.007 milligrams per kilogram per day (mg/kg-d) can temporarily and reversibly inhibit the thyroid gland’s ability to absorb iodine from the bloodstream.
Thus, perchlorates are a known cause of goiter. As of April of 2007, the EPA
has not been able to determine whether or not perchlorates are present in
sufficient levels in our environment to require a nationwide regulation on how much should be allowed in drinking water.
As hypothyroidism develops, the body starts making mucin. A substance that resembles clear corn syrup, mucin is deposited throughout the tissues along with fat molecules. As hypothyroidism continues on its course, people start gaining weight in a pattern typical of metabolic syndrome—overweight with fat concentrated in the middle of the body. A simple way to check for mucin in your tissues is to pinch the skin over your deltoid muscle between your shoulder and arm. Under normal circumstances your fingers should nearly touch. Any bulk you feel in that area is caused by an accumulation of mucin.
Results of having mucin in your tissues:
Mucin makes it difficult for blood to flow through tissues. The body responds by increasing blood pressure to force blood through the tissues.
This is called hypertension or high blood pressure.
Mucin surrounds cell membranes, making it difficult for insulin to access the membrane. Insulin resistance develops, leading to type 2 diabetes.
Mucin is deposited in the organs of the abdomen, resulting in “beer belly”
Traditional Medical Therapy for Metabolic Syndrome
Hypertension medications are prescribed to lower blood pressure. These
medications make circulation through the mucin even more difficult, which
results in less nutrition and oxygen getting into the cells.
Diabetes medications are prescribed to lower blood sugar. This results in even lower levels of sugar getting INSIDE the cells, where it matters.
Surgeries correct obesity by removing part of the intestines or installing a
band around the stomach. This results in the body getting very little nutrition.
High cholesterol/triglyceride medications are prescribed to lower cholesterol.
This makes it even harder for the body to make hormones and repair the brain, which is 50 percent cholesterol by weight.
3. Heavy Metals
Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium destroy mitochondria.
Lead may cause irreversible neurological damage, renal disease, cardiovascular problems, and reproductive problems.
Symptoms of chronic lead poisoning include:
Reduced cognitive abilities
- Abdominal pain
- A metallic taste in the oral cavity
- Excessive lethargy or hyperactivity
- Anemia (which is often mistaken as iron deficiency anemia)
- Kidney problems
- Reproductive problems Gastrointestinal problems, i.e.
constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, poor appetite, weight loss
Note: Acute lead poisoning is the only type of lead poisoning that can be detected through blood tests. Chronic poisoning will go undetected in blood tests. Lead does not remain in the blood, but rather moves deep into the
tissues where a blood test cannot detect it. A blood film examination may reveal basophilic stippling of red blood cells as well as changes that are normally associated with iron deficiency anemia. For this reason, lead poisoning can sometimes be confused with iron deficiency anemia. If a patient doesn’t respond to treatment for anemia, lead poisoning should be considered.
Lead inactivates enzymes by replacing calcium, iron, and zinc. It has no known biological role in the body. Toxicity comes from its ability to mimic other biologically important metals, most notably calcium, iron, and zinc. Lead is able to bind to and interact with the same proteins and molecules that occur in these metals, but after the other metals are displaced the molecules function differently and fail to carry out some reactions such as producing enzymes necessary for certain biological processes.
Traditional medicine believes that the majority of lead poisoning incidents occur in children under the age of 12. However, recent examinations show that many adults suffer from lead poisoning as well.
Main sources of lead poisoning include:
Ingesting lead-contaminated soil.
- Ingesting lead dust or chips from deteriorating lead-based paints. Small
children also tend to teethe and suck on painted windowsills as they look
- Drinking water that has been contaminated through plumbing fixtures that are either made of lead or have trace amounts of lead in them.
- Exposure to metallic lead through small metallic objects. Although rare, this
can lead to an increase in blood levels when the lead is retained in the
gastrointestinal tract or appendix.
- Some imported cosmetics such as kohl and surma. Kohl is made from soot
and other ingredients and used by mainly women but also by some men to
darken eyelids and eyelashes. It originates in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, and some parts of Africa. Surma comes from India.
- Imported toys, including many made in China, have become a major concern in the U.S. Many items imported from China contain lead.
Folk remedies such as azarcon, which contains 95 percent lead and is used to “cure” empacho (an impacted stomach).
Direct contact with lead occurring through the mouth, nose, eyes, and breaks in the skin.
Lead and the Nervous System
Lead affects the peripheral and central nervous systems. The most common sign of peripheral neuropathy due to chronic lead poisoning is painless wrist drop (weakness of the extensor muscles in the hand), which usually develops after many weeks of exposure.
Multiple researchers and child advocacy groups have confirmed there is a direct link between early lead exposure and extreme learning disabilities.
A May 2000 study by Rick Nevin, an economic consultant, theorizes that lead exposure explains 65-90 percent of variation in violent crime rates
in the United States and other countries.
Some facts about lead:
Most people born before 1950 were exposed to lead through gasoline and
It only takes a piece of lead the size of a grain of salt to poison you.
Lead tends to be suppressed in bones by hormones. As your hormone
levels decrease, lead leaches out of bones and often affects the heart
when a person is in his/her 40s- 50s—which is the prime age for heart attacks!
Mercury acts as a poison to the brain and nervous system. In adults, mercury poisoning has been linked to fertility problems, memory and vision loss, and trouble with blood pressure regulation. It can also cause extreme fatigue and neuro-muscular dysfunction.
Pregnant women and small children, whose brains are still developing, are especially at risk. Fetuses and infants who are exposed to mercury may develop:
- Mental retardation
- Cerebral palsy
Even in low doses, mercury can interfere with a child’s development, leading to shortened attention span and learning disabilities.
And the problems don’t end there. Studies show that mercury in the central nervous system causes psychological, neurological, and immunological problems including:
- Arrhythmias and cardiomyopathies
- Personality changes and irritability
- Blurred vision
- Slowed mental response
- Unsteady gait
After entering the body, mercury migrates to fatty tissues like those in the brain, liver, kidneys, and endocrine glands. It bonds very firmly to the brain and spinal chord and, unless actively removed, has an extremely long half-life of between 15 and 30 years (half life is a number used to describe how long it takes for a given substance to decay).
In humans, lead toxicity sometimes causes the formation of a bluish line along the gums that is known as Burton’s line. It is very uncommon in young children.
Main sources of mercury poisoning include:
According to the World Health Organization, 80 percent of the danger we face from mercury comes from the mercury in amalgam dental fillings.
Another unexpected source is through high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). A
recent study found that almost half of tested samples of HFCS contained
mercury. This occurs because of the way HFCS is manufactured. Mercury
was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products in which HFCS is listed as the first or second ingredient. It is thought that damage from consuming mercury-contaminated HFCS may be cumulative, with levels increasing over time.
In 1998 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a report
citing mercury emissions from electric utility facilities as another large
anthropogenic source of mercury that is released into the air. EPA officials
estimated that about 50 tons of elemental mercury is emitted each year from U.S. coal-burning power plants. Lesser amounts come from oil and gas
burning units. According to EPA estimates, emissions from coal-fired utilities account for 13-26 percent of total (natural and anthropogenic) airborne emissions of mercury in the U.S
Some facts about mercury:
One-quarter of the adults recently tested in New York City had elevated levels of mercury in their blood. A study by the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene found that mercury was highest in Asians, women, and those with higher incomes.
Most of the cancer patients seen in Dr. Tennant’s clinic up to this point have
had elevated levels of mercury and lead in their systems.
Detecting Heavy Metal Poisoning
- Heavy metals don’t remain in the blood but rather move quickly into the
tissues. If you find heavy metals in a blood test, it means your have current
and ongoing exposure.
- The most accurate way to test for heavy metals is with a chelation-urine
provocative test in which a chelating agent is given IV and then a six-hour
urine sample is collected and tested for heavy metals.
Hair tests are not a reliable means of testing for heavy metals.
- Removing Heavy Metals
- Materials like zeolite, chlorophyll, cilantro, etc., are not reliable ways of
removing heavy metals from the body. These products remain in the gut and are not absorbed into the system. Heavy metals are generally embedded deep within the tissues, which means zeolite, etc., cannot access them.
- The most reliable way to remove metals is with chelation.
Sweating (induced by infrared saunas), raw garlic, glutathione, etc., are also
4. Dental Infections Related to Tooth Decay, Root Canals, and Jaw Bones
Dental infections destroy mitochondria through thioethers (unstable chemical compounds) and gliotoxins (fungal toxins), which are found in cavities, root canals, and jaw infections. Unfortunately, our current solutions to these dental woes don’t offer much hope in terms of promoting healthy mitochondria. In addition, the mercury in amalgam fillings destroys many of the rechargeable ATP/ADP batteries in cells.
All mercury fillings continually leak substantial amounts of mercury gas into the body, which is why mercury from fillings is responsible for most of the mercury exposure that occurs. Mercury comes off of fillings every time the fillings are stimulated through rubbing, temperature changes (occurring with consumption of hot beverages like coffee), teeth grinding, or chewing gum.
In 1985 the International Academy of Oral Medicine Toxicology decided to determine the amount of mercury that comes off fillings through a series of tests performed on sheep. They found that a substantial quantity of mercury spread to every organ in the sheep in just 30 days. The sheep’s kidneys lost some of their ability to function. When the tests were performed on monkeys, whole body imaging discovered the same thing. The mercury released from “silver” fillings provoked and increased both mercury and antibiotic resistant bacteria in the primates’ oral and intestinal flora within two weeks of acquiring the fillings. Further studies showed damage to brain neuron proteins.
In 1991 The World Health Organization acknowledged that the predominant source of mercury exposure in our culture comes from dental fillings. There is no such thing as a safe mercury filling—they all leak. If mercury and lead both happen to be present in the system, the combination is many times more toxic than mercury alone.
The manufacturers of amalgam filling material state that mercury is contraindicated for:
- Expectant mothers
- Children aged 6 and under
- Proximalor occlusal contact to dissimilar metal restorations
- Patients with severe renal (kidney) deficiency
- Patients with known allergies to amalgams
- When used as retrograde or in endodontic fillings
- When used as a filling material for cast crowns
Unfortunately, dentists don’t always follow manufacturer’s directions. Most gold and porcelain crowns cover the mercury amalgam fillings that have caused a problem tooth to fracture. This means that the mercury is still there. And x-rays will not show what is occuring with a tooth after a crown is in place.
Is there a way to discover if you have a problem?
You can measure the voltage leaking from dental fillings made of metal with a common voltmeter purchased from a hardware store. Simply put the voltmeter’s black probe on the inside of your cheek and the red probe on the filling. Any measurement above 20mv is abnormal. You shouldn’t have more than 30 mv coming from a tooth that simply has a filling.
Crowns can present special problems. Porcelain crowns are usually placed over a metal cap. You can see the metal caps at the gumline and can put a voltmeter there and see what is going on underneath the porcelain crown. If as much as 100 mv comes from a tooth with a crown, a visit to the dentist will confirm that there is a problem. When the dentist lifts off the crown, there will always be decay beneath it.
When mercury fillings are removed they should be replaced with composite fillings. As this procedure is undertaken patients should be sure to use an auxillary air supply mask so they won’t breathe in their own air, which will include mercury vapors. A rubber dam should also be fitted inside the mouth to keep the mercury from being swallowed.
A tooth that has a root canal is by definition dead. All dead tissues in the body carry infection, and this can cause problems that use up the body’s voltage. If you pull out a tooth that has had a root canal, put it in a glass of saline water for a day, and then take a single drop of the saline solution and inject it into a mouse, the mouse will die in less than a minute due to the toxins. These toxins are released into the body through infections
in the teeth. The toxins are called gliotoxins and thioethers. Teeth that have root canals always become infected. That is why root canals must be removed and replaced with a bridge. Any dead tissue in the body must be removed, whether it is a tooth, an appendix, or a big toe. The dentist who originally invented the root canal procedure, George E Meinig, D.D.S., later came to realize the problems created by root canals. He spent the
last years of his career trying to get dentists to stop doing this type of surgery. In the process, he wrote the book Root Canal Cover-Up.
Infections in Jaw Bones
Dental cavitations are infections that occur in jawbones. The problem often originates when an infected root canal tooth spreads toxins into the jawbone. It can also happen when a tooth is pulled but the ligament that holds the tooth to the jaw is not removed by the dentist. The ligament rots and the area under the bone becomes a small abscess in the
jaw. This condition usually doesn’t cause any pain or at most minimal pain. That’s why most patients don’t even know they have it. However, the toxins that escape from cavitations are severe and can cause damage to other organs in the body. It is estimated
that one root canal tooth can put out enough toxins to inactivate 80 percent of your immune system; toxins from cavitations are worse than those from root canals.
Excessive toxins are hazardous and must be removed from the body. Most of the toxins that cause problems are fat soluble, so they end up being embedded in a globule of fat.
They are sent in this form to the liver, which works like an air conditioning filter to remove them from the blood. It is then the liver’s job to change the toxins from their fat soluble form into a water soluble form that can be excreted from the body through the kidneys.
In an attempt to keep toxins out of the heart and brain, the body puts many of the toxins into fat cells, joints, and skin.
Like any other filter, the liver gets dirty. Because the liver consists of 4.6 lbs.
of fat and the toxins that go through it come in the form of fat globules, water alone won’t clean it. It’s like having grease on your hands. You can’t clean grease off your hands with water—you need soap. So the liver uses a type of soap—cholesterol—to clean itself.
It’s a good idea to augment this process with periodic liver cleanses.
Sweating, infra-red lights, garlic, glutathione, etc., can be helpful in getting
these toxins out of your system.
The large intestine and gall bladder are often dirty as well and need to be
cleaned. When these organs are dirty, parasites may also be present.
What Should You Do Now If You Are Sick and Need Help?
- Stop consuming partially hydrogenated fats and canola oil.
- Correct your iodine levels with Lugol’s iodine.
- Check your morning temperature. If it is less than 97. 6, you are hypothyroid and will need to take thyroid hormone under the supervision of a doctor. (It needs to be Amour thyroid, not a synthetic version.)
- Have a urine provocative test for heavy metals. Remove all mercury fillings.
Remove all root canal teeth and replace with a bridge.
Drink a total nutrition shake daily to provide the raw materials your body
needs to make new cells. It can include:
- o Raw milk
- o Raw eggs
- o Chia seeds
- o Vitamin C
- o Raw nuts
- o Raw fruit including wolfberries
Take probiotics (good bacteria every day)
Eat 90 percent of the rest of your diet as raw, unprocessed foods
(the literature is confusing about cooking, but cooking removes
- If you smoke, quit. You may not be successful with this until you correct the dopamine in your brain.
- Avoid all artificial sweeteners and MSG
- Avoid sodas, coffee, tea (except herbal and green), alcohol (fermented means it contain fungus and also chlorinated water)
- Avoid fluoride in all forms including toothpaste. If you go to the dentist and
he wants to slather your teeth with fluoride, don’t let him do it.
- Eat only wild or free-range meat and keep consumption to less than 10 percent of your diet. Do not take antibiotics unless your life depends upon it because they create their own set of problems.
- Avoid processed sugar like high fructose corn syrup
- Use honey for sweetener (honey is anti-fungal). You can also use stevia.
- Corn and peanuts always contain fungus and must be used in moderation or avoided.
- Granny Smith apples and carrots are anti-fungal. Use them when you crave sweets. Juice 1 apple and 2 carrots for a very invigorating, healthful drink.
- Use this drink when you crave sweets.
Steps You Can Take To Increase Your Cellular Energy
1. Since the body is 75 percent water, drink water that has significant
voltage in it (donates electrons). It will help charge your cells and thus
keep them healthy.
2. Use a water ionizer (e.g,. Jupiter Neptune) to get water that donates
electrons. You can use a dial in the device to choose the amount of
voltage you want in your drinking water.
3. If you have pain, consider using a Biomodulator.
The Cost of Getting/Staying Healthy
Taking control of your own health is critical. You cannot depend on your physician to keep you well and healthy.
Many people say they cannot afford to implement the plan outlined in this booklet because much of it won’t be covered by their insurance. However, depending upon your dental needs, you will find that it costs less to get healthy than it does to buy a car.
In our culture people have a 50 percent chance of dying from cancer and, before that happens, suffering from migraines, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, fatigue, etc. If you don’t implement the suggestions outlined in this booklet, you won’t need a car.
