Normally iodine is found as 2 molecules of iodine paired (stuck) together and this is called "I2”. This form of iodine is difficult for the body to process and use correctly. As a result doctors in that past have used potassium iodide in combination with I2 to supplement iodine with some success. In fact iodized salt is table salt in which potassium iodide is added in small amounts. The problem with potassium iodide is that it can cause an inflammation in the thyroid known as thyroiditis. Many doctors are reluctant to supplement with iodine due to this risk. It is however clear to all doctors that there is an epidemic of iodine deficiency throughout the world and in fact iodine deficiency is the leading cause of mental retardation in the world. America is no exception regarding iodine deficiency. Many Americans avoid salt or are using natural salts that do not contain extra iodine. The soils in which plants are grown are deficient in iodine leaving our foods depleted in this essential nutrient.
The word "nascent” means newborn. Nascent iodine is a special form of iodine that is made by taking molecular iodine, I2 and exposing it to a strong magnetic field. This separates the iodine into individual atoms that enter into the body and are used very easily. This form of iodine does not cause congestion in the thyroid gland like other forms of iodine and because it is very bioavailable, you will only need to take it in small amounts. The body can easily eliminate this form of iodine through the kidneys if you take more than your body needs and it is not toxic. It takes about 4-6 months for your body to be fully nourished with this iodine, and the iodine should be continued after this at the same dose.
Iodine helps to kill pathogenic ("bad”) bacteria and yeasts in your system and because of this it is advisable to start with a small dose of the iodine and to gradually increase in order to avoid a "detox” reaction. Detox reactions occur when these bad germs die suddenly and are released into the blood stream causing such symptoms as headache, fatigue and nausea. If you get a detox reaction it is harmless and all you will need to do is to stop the iodine for one day and to increase your water intake for a day or two, then resume the iodine at a smaller dose for a few days before increasing it again.
INSTRUCTIONS IN USE
Use 2% nascent iodine. (If you have 1%, then take twice as many drops)
Please keep the bottle of iodine out of direct sunlight at all times
The adult dose is 4 drops in the morning and 4 drops in the evening however it is best to start with one drop twice a day and to gradually increase by one drop every 3-7 days to avoid a detox reaction.
For adults there are 2 effective ways to take this iodine:
- If your stomach is empty, put the drops in ½ glass of water and drink it. You will know if you have an empty stomach by the way you feel, if you feel hungry and it is at least 2-3 or more hours after eating or drinking anything other than water your stomach will be empty. After taking the iodine, please wait 30 minutes before eating.
- If your stomach has food or drink in it you can put a small amount of water in a glass, add the drops and hold this water in your mouth for 3-5 minutes, then swallow. Most of the iodine will be absorbed though your mouth.
For infants or toddlers simply put 1 drop on the skin twice a day and it will be absorbed through the skin.
