Dr. Sircus discusses the history and absolute necessity for iodine in our bodies and why we need to supplement.
Iodine today is more important than it ever has been and yet we know it´s always been important. Iodine is the oldest allopathic medicine, it´s the first medicine actually that cured specific a disease which is goiter. The governments around the world fifty years ago recognized how important it was and started putting iodine in salt and even in the United States used to put it in bread. And then come some crazy person took it out and put bromide in its place.
TEXT - Bromine is a toxic halogen that competitively inhibits iodine in the body. Bromine exposure will cause the body to excrete iodine and lead to iodine deficiency. If we don´t supplement with extra iodine, bromine will continually replace iodine all over all bodies. Even in the thyroid gland, bromine can replace iodine. The consequences of this include increased rates of cancer of the breast, thyroid, ovary, uterus and prostate. Other consequences of increased bromine exposure include autoimmune illnesses such as autoimmune thyroid disorders. Dr. David Brownstein states: “ I have checked hundreds of patients for their bromine levels and I have found elevated bromine levels (with most patients having very high levels) occurring in 100% of patients. “
So, Iodine is very important, for the body, for health. The Japanese eat a lot of Iodine, more than anybody else because of the high consumption of seafood. There are several doctors in the world, I called them the Iodine doctors. Dr. David Brownstein is a friend of mine and he has written a book about Iodine and inspired me to write a book on Iodine, and I subtitle “ Bringing Back the Universal Medicine” because it is very useful for many, many things. It´s essential, we need it, the thyroid needs Iodine to produce thyroid hormones which controls the metabolism of the cells, so it is a very fundamental substance. It is been used forever in hospitals, in emergency rooms as a topical substance to kill viruses, bacteria, fungus, mold, mildew….it basically kills all single cell pathogens very quickly , so I use it instead of antibiotics.
TEXT – Antibiotic use is known to inhibit excretion of Mercury. Dr.Marc Lipsitch
Only once in all these years I used antibiotic in desperation for one of my children. I have six children and whenever they get sick the first thing I go for is the Iodine, the second thing I go for is the magnesium and the third thing I go for is the sodium bicarbonate. When dealing with flu or cold or anything that moves the body into discomfort, the beginning of any diseases, the beginning of anything. These substances used very quickly can, you can have a cold, and solve the cold, and really avoid going deeply into it. Same with the flu. If you use magnesium chloride orally strongly, the bicarbonate and the Iodine orally you can kind of head off a flu or cold at pass. That is how effective these substances are. If they can save a life, from a person from a heart attack, or magnesium if you inject quick enough when a person is having a stroke, they can avoid all the brain damage. So Iodine is important and can be used in cancer treatment. Dr. Tullio Simoncini has pioneered the use of Iodine topically for skin cancer, he was not aware though that you could really take it orally in high dosages and actually treat cancer internally because Iodine will be on a seek and destroying mission of anything that doesn’t belong in the body.
TEXT – Iodine kills 90% of bacteria on the skin in 90 seconds. Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa, and many viruses. Only Iodine is capable of killing all classes of pathogens: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, yeasts, and protozoa.
It is a broad spectrum killer of pathogens. Some people believe that cancer is a fungus. And there are a lot of good reasons to see and believe that or if you disagree with that to recognize that cancer is usually or very often accompanied by infectious process and late stages infections tend to be fungus.
TEXT – “I believe that, conservatively, 15 or 20 percent of all cancer is caused by infections; however, the number could be larger maybe double.” Dr. Andrew Dannenberg
Sodium bicarbonate, is a very strong anti fungal, and so is Iodine.
