Home Test for Iodine Deficiency 

 

Iodine deficiency is becoming wide spread, so too is thyroid problems.

An easy way to find out if your iodine level is low is to get a tincture of iodine.  Put 3 drops anywhere on the inner arm, rubbing them in with the dropper.  If the patch fades within a few hours it means there is a deficiency. Alternatively, have a blood test.

Iodine is vital for the thyroid, so too is selenium, both of these nutrients are low in our diets. Tyrosine is vital for the thyroid as a combo of this and iodine make up the two thyroid hormones T3 and T4. The conversion needs selenium.

If an iodine deficiency is found, please take iodine drops 5%, selenium and Tyrosine.

 

Please view this video by Dr David Brownstein on the importance of iodine.
