Take the Iodine liquid Test

Take the Iodine liquid Test

A lack of iodine can cause a whole host of symptoms and complications, especially for women. Iodine is one element of  hypothyroid treatment. Getting enough Iodine could be the best hypothyroid treatment.

The thyroid gland is located in the throat, and thus takes on a lot of emotional wear and tear especially related to relationships, and financial health thus causing most of our emotional strain today. During stressful times your thyroid is in high gear and requires sufficient amount of iodine to cope. You can learn more about the emotional connections to your thyroid by clicking on this link.

According to The Chemistry of Man author Benard Jensen generally people in need of iodine are lethargic, dragging and depressed. Frustrated self-expression, lack of emotional control, fear of elevators and extreme discomfort with anything snug around the throat are also indicators of low iodine.

Iodine has the ability to keep your brain functioning optimally by disallowing toxins to enter through policing in your thyroid gland.  Through this relationship, iodine destroys harmful toxins and increases the assimilation of salts for normal metabolism. Your lymphatic system carries iodine to every cell in your body. Can you see the harmony in having proper nutrients?

The beginning stages of an iodine deficiencyor lack of iodine may go unnoticed unless you really tune into your body and pay attention to symptoms. One method you can try is the Iodine Liquid Test.

Purchase a bottle of reddish-brown liquid iodine from your local health food store. Paint a circle about the size of a dollar coin on the inside of your arm and let it dry. If the circle disappears before 8 hours this is an indication of lack of iodine in your system and possibly the root cause contributing to an underactive thyroid. This is important because your thyroid uses more iodine than any other organ in your body (next to the prostate).

So how did you do? How long did it take before the circle of liquid iodine was absorbed? Comment below-would love to know.

    I’m going to be taking liquid iodine what is the best way to injest it?

    Hi Karen, recently my new Dr ordered a bunch of lab tests for me. Thyroid was one of them. But, only TSH. It was 2.29, which is normal. Can I still have low thyroid? I have most of the symptoms on your tests. And, my temperature has always ran 97.6 or below. I don’t know, I’m very frustrated with Dr’s. I have tried taking iodine drops in my water every day for weeks, but, I couldn’t tell any difference in the way I felt. Any advice?

      Hi Betty,
      Thanks for reaching out and for reading my article. Have your doctor order the Free T3 T4 and Thyroid Antibody Tests especially if you have taken the test and have most of the symptoms. If your doctor will not cooperate with you then you have the right to find another that will. After all without patients to attend to doctor’s would not have much to work for would they?
      Here is a great PDF from the American Thyroid Association that describes each test and why to have it done. Here is the link http://bit.ly/1fSzjV6
      I hope this helps!

    All liquid iodine had disappeared within 35 minutes. Is this bad? Thanks, L Smith

      Hi LG
      If it absorbed quickly then you may be iodine deficient.

    • Karen Langston February 19, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

      Hi LG, it should have taken about 24 hours to disappear. It may mean that you need some iodine in your life!!!

    I currently take Thyromine for my hypothyroidism. Should I continue to take it along with the iodine drops or stop taking it and just take the drops?

    • Karen Langston February 19, 2014 at 2:41 pm #

      Hi Sue,
      When it comes to thyroid issues, never stop taking anything prescribed to you especially thyroid medication unless you speak with your prescribing doctor first. Iodine will help work on your thyroid however, the best thing you could do for yourself is to stop eating processed refined foods. They are loaded with Bromides that inhibits the uptake of iodine. So if you are going to take iodine you will have better results if you switch to good healthy diet with whole foods, unpackaged, unrefined foods. Be sure to avoid goitrogen foods unless you cook them first. You can see my related post with a great video full of more thyroid loving tips that includes a list of healthy foods,and goitrogenic food! http://karenlangston.com/2012/01/hypothyroidism-diet-and-goitrogen/

      Hope that helps Sue and thank you for your comment
