EnerG-Iodine (Alcohol- based)
It has been written that the fundamental building blocks to health are water, salt, soda and iodine. Of these, iodine seems to be the least understood and most neglected. Its main function is synthesis, storage and secretion of thyroid hormone.
The thyroid gland, a part of the endocrine system, is an essential part of human health and is fueled by iodine. The thyroid influences and is also influenced by other endocrine glands, especially the pituitary, hypothalamus, adrenals, parathyroid and sex glands. This key gland is essential for the normal functioning of human cells, the nervous system, muscles, brain development, oxygen utilization, the metabolism, the immune system, etc. Thyroid imbalances, commonly known as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, is estimated to affect nearly 13 million people in the U.S., a drastically conservative estimate according to energetic medicine studies. Traditional blood tests fail to take into consideration that the adrenals are able to produce small amounts of thyroid hormone. As a result, blood tests may show sufficient levels of thyroid hormone but without indication that these levels could be due to overworked adrenals and an exhausted thyroid. So by the time a blood test confirms a thyroid problem, it is indeed a real problem as the “pinch hitter” adrenals are exhausted too!
Common symptoms of an imbalanced thyroid include weight gain and loss, fatigue, muscle weakness, slow heart rate, heart enlargement, low body temperature, sensitivity to cold, dry course skin, hair loss, difficulties in concentration, impaired memory, slow speech, thick tongue, hoarseness, deafness, increased allergies, difficult breathing, high cholesterol levels, fluid retention, constipation, recurrent infections, calcium metabolism problems, depression, irritability, decreased sweating, painful menstrual cycles, bumps on the eyelids, swollen, drooping eyelids, gastrointestinal disturbances, etc.
Iodine is also the trigger mechanism for apoptosis (the natural death of cells) as well as abnormal cells; protects against abnormal growth of bacteria in the stomach; coats incoming allergenic proteins to make them non-allergenic; is an antiseptic; is necessary for fetal development (possible initial source of thyroxine and apoptotic mechanisms); is an anti-cancer and anti-autoimmune disease agent; and deactivates in the stomach biological and most chemical poisons.
Some interesting facts about iodine: autopsies of healthy people who died of natural causes showed trace amounts of iodine in almost all tissues and organs; in tadpoles, their system is flushed with iodine at the point they become air-breathing frogs, and similarly, it is hypothesized that in infants, their bodies are flushed with iodine as they are born; iodine’s antiseptic potency and safety has never been equaled or surpassed, as dilute iodine solutions kill all single celled organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and even staphylococcus, with few side effects and no development of bacterial resistance. Iodine is the only recommended nutrient for nuclear fallout.
Detoxified, ingestible iodine in its colloidal, 99% bio-available state is unparalleled in potentially helping to support and saturate the thyroid for proper functioning. It is not the typical toxic iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine trichloride (claiming to be atomized), or as added to potassium iodide to make it safer. It is also unlike glandulars or prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid’s job instead of nutritionally building the thyroid to do its own job. And seaweed, seafood, greens, raw sunflower seeds, and iodized salt may not have the levels of assimilable iodine needed to support and saturate the thyroid.
Radioactive tracing of iodine shows much of it going to the thyroid first, followed by the blood (where it mixes with tyrosine or histidine and becomes the surveillance mechanism for abnormal cells), nasal cavities, gut, breasts, stomach, and cervix, then followed by the bones, extracellular fluids, and connective tissue of almost all organs.
