DHEA is used for thyroid problems. Another NATURAL is Dulse of Iodine for under or over active thyroid problems and it makes more sense, but one would have to be faithful in taking this liquid Iodine, from the seaweed, as you would thyroid drugs. Other herbs affective maybe horseradish, parsley, black poke weed, radish, and kelp (sea weeds). (Vitamin C, 1000 mg ascorbic acid, when acute)
Some older seniors may remember as children e were sent to a school nurse who then were allowed to actually doctored them for their tonsillitis problems with iodine and glycerin? Well, here's her old recipe that still works. These remedies are not in order: Choose one now or try another next time, even the diet while sick. Some remedies are put in here because you may not have one remedy available. Please try one, if it's not for you or not in your cupboard then go to another...I use many of these and so do my children. You will choose a favorite. No need to try them all at once.
*Glycerin and Iodine Swab (Old Remedy but still works) Mix in a clear bottle of glycerin (you get this product at the health food stores or on line sites like http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/ ) with iodine (the potent kind.) I bought mine at the Farmers Co-op; some drug stores now carry it. My son -in- law is a doctor and he carries it and used some of these recipes. ...Add the iodine to the glycerin until the color is deep amber, then bottle in a dark brown bottle. Use Popsicle stick for the tongue suppressor and q-tips to paint the tonsils with every hour. Continue until sore throat is gone. I never had to do it more than once? However, do it as often as necessary. Use the semi-fast diet except when acute-then fruits and water only and treat it as a cold.
Some refer to this as a "MILDER FOODS" IN OTHER WORDS, "A PLANT BASED"-diet. Basically no meat, dairy, like cheese that would clog the plumbing while the body tries to clear out the accumulated poisons/toxins. So do watch what is eaten during this "acute" time. *Note: eating sugar only acerbates the problem.
..."And whosoever among you are sick, and have not faith to be healed, but believe, shall be nourished with all tenderness, with herbs and mild food, and that not by the hand of an enemy."....(Scriptures)
*Be sure to get a Xray guard for the throat area when going to the dentist etc.

RE: suggestions from "The Earth Clinic cures" furnish the following and is all in quotes: "According the Earth’s Clinic, not only does iodine (the painting of or the internal consumption of kelp or Lugol's iodine solution) cure an impending cold or flu, iodine also cures acne, PMS, anxiety, allergies, hypothyroidism, bladder infections, moles and dermatitis. Additionally, we just had a report that iodine (in the form of kelp) has cured fibrocystic breast disease." "Using decolorized iodine for the face, take a q-tip and dab the dermatitis with iodine. If this is not on your face, you can use regular iodine. But it will stain you orange for a few hours. If your dermatitis is on sensitive skin around your nose, like me, it will burn like crazy when you apply the iodine. Don't inhale the fumes while it is drying (takes about 10 seconds to dry). After it dries, apply some natural vitamin E oil. I open a large capsule and use that for several days before it runs out. Your skin will redden from the iodine and dry out, but the vitamin e will heal it and keep it from flaking. Keep this area moist with vitamin e oil all day and night if possible. Do the topical iodine for 2 days, 3x a day. After the 2nd day, cut the iodine back to 1x a day. However, you will still want to keep the vitamin E oil on all day. After 3 days of 1x daily application of iodine, cut the iodine back to every other day. Continue every other day for 10 days (or less).
Keep up the vitamin e oil every day until the dermatitis has disappear completely. Let me tell you, the iodine and vitamin 3 oil starts to work on clearing up the dermatitis in about 24 hours! Initially the skin will look red and inflamed, but don't worry... the vitamin e speeds up the healing process."
Bald Spots? "Barb from Auckland, New Zealand writes, "Alopecia Areata is bald spots that occur all of a sudden on your scalp. I dab it on once a day on bald spots for a week to a fortnight - and then forget about it (if I can) and hope:) So far it seems to start the growth of hair again. It changes the scalp texture from red and irritable back to normal scalp. Within 6 weeks to 8 weeks usually spot is covering with little hairs. The iodine may even help the fatigue that comes when your hair falls out too - when a bald spot is occurring I tend to get deathly pale and feel exhausted."
"Stephanie from Loganholme, Qld. Australia writes, "Iodine cures brittle and easily broken finger nails. It makes the fingernails hard, chip proof and unbreakable. Dip your fingernails in colorless iodine once a day for 1 week; then once a week for 3 to 4 weeks; then once a month. It dries almost instantly. It begins hardening the nails under the cuticle and as the nail grows out it stays hard and un breakable. Once the new hard nail reaches the length you want, you will never again have chipped and broken nails. No need for all those expensive formulas sold in beauty parlors and chemist shops." Yeast: "Michael, from Peoria Az writes us:
"I have used Lugol's internally for years. My wife had a major bladder infection and had 2 bio's performed and all kinds of drugs prescribed including a Dr. stating we were passing a virus thru sex back and forth. I refused to take the chemicals. Finally she wanted to try the Lugol's and within 2 weeks began to walk with no pain. I placed it in the water containers of my 2 dogs. My 3 pound 10 old dog came alive once again. I feel it killed all the worms in her that were bleeding her of energy. I believe in Lugol's for everything. I purchase it by the 500ml's and give it away to people who are real ill or sick." "Tel from Dewey, AZ writes, "Lugol's iodine cured food poisoning in less than an hour: 6 drops in a cup of water. Also cures, Cold, Flu, and the blase feeling, same dose 6 drops in a cup of water... do not take if allergic to Iodine.
" Sore Throat: "Quita from Atlanta, GA writes, "I had a severe sore throat recently (I could not even swallow) and my good friend suggested painting the inside of my wrist with iodine. I thought she was crazy. But it worked! The pain was completely gone the next morning. Shortly thereafter my son became sick with a bad cold. Although she recommended the iodine for a sore throat, I used it on my 3-year old and the next day he was 100% better. "
"Loni from Tallahassee, Fla. writes, "Iodine is my drug of choice. I use it for EVERYTHING. I raise my kids and now my grand kids on iodine. My son was due to have his tonsils removed and I decided to paint his tonsils and he has never been had any more problems with his throat. I took a spray bottle and poured some iodine into the bottle and sprayed his tonsils. As you may know iodine dries quickly, so he didn't really swallow any. It worked within 24 hours after spraying the throat. I have done it for my sore throat and it clears it right up." "Cindy, from Shady Cove, OR writes, "I use Lugol's iodine anytime I am getting a cold. I was a chronic user of antibiotics because of asthma. I have not had a bout with bronchitis because anytime I am getting a cold or virus I put 6 drops of Lugol's in water 3 times over a 24 hour period and the infection is gone."
Mole: "Teresa, from Lowell, North Carolina writes, "I had a raised mole to come up on my face and several skin tags to appear under my arm. I was embarrassed by the mole on my face, but didn't have the money to have it removed. Using a q-tip, I rubbed iodine on both the mole and skin tags at night before going to bed. Within 3 to 7 days the skin tag dried and fell off while the mole went away. I have shared this information with my sister who has removed several as well." "Tish, from Granger, IN comments: "I just started painting twice a day. I have always had irregular menstrual cycles and cysts and recently started having problems with acne. It has been about 1.5 weeks now and my acne is almost gone. I have had acne problems for the last 6 months and tried everything over the counter and topical you could imagine."
"Donna, from Aspen, CO writes us about the wonders of iodine solution to cure PMS: "I totally cured my PMS, as I used to have severe anxiety, temper flare ups and acne. I paint myself with 2% tincture of iodine every AM & PM. Noticed the change within 2 days! Also, my allergies went away, my teeth weren't sensitive anymore."
"So in case you are wondering why iodine restored your hair, iodine kills the fungus and that helps the fungus from eating up the ends of the hair follicle. But the issue goes more than this, fungus EXISTS BECAUSE your body is already high in heavy metals. Without high heavy metals, they die. And one reason WHY your body was high in heavy metals in the first place could come from many things, one of which iodine deficiency reduces your body's ability to rid of heavy toxic metals such as cadmium, mercury, lead, etc."
"In case you worry about iodine poisoning. The antidote for iodine overdose is easy: chocolate or cocoa. It is high in bromine and it displaces iodine when the need comes." This may work on those allergic to fish too. (too much iodine i.e.)
"Iodine foot painting is safer and often done only weekly. There is hardly any reaction of this unless it was done more than 4 days in a row. The best way to use iodine is externally and allow iodine absorption transmittal. This way you DON'T have to worry about iodine tolerance since this is absorbed rather slowly. In fact the (Povidone Iodine) iodine they sell in drug stores cannot be used for internal use since the solution is often an alcohol which is toxic to the body anyway. By applying to the skin, the alcohol will evaporate leaving whatever iodine it is to be absorbed. By Ted"
"Carolyn from Woodlawn, IL writes, "I got a large burn from a motorcycle exhaust. I did not blister or scar with iodine on it." "Catherine, from Laval, Quebec, Canada writes, "When I was 21, I came back from the lake with what we call 'ringworm'. It is not a worm but a fungus. An older man I showed it to told me to put iodine on it. The red skin cleared within a few days. Ever since, I have been using it on abandoned cats that come in from the cold with various states of the fungus. It clears within days." "Dianna, from Houston, AR writes, "I have wormed my dogs and cats successfully for twenty-seven years with iodine. Its slower than commercial wormers but safer and with less side effects." "Here is a remedy that's been around quite a long time. It stops Salmonella poisoning immediately. Also used to treat Giardia. If you have gas and bloating and suspect Salmonella poisoning, here's the recipe: 1/2 glass of water, add 6 drops of Lugol's Iodine Solution, stir and drink in entirety. You will feel better within an hour. Take this 4x a day, after meals and at bedtime, for 3 days in a row, then as needed."
"Iodine is a very effective method for water purification. Iodine destroys bacteria, viruses and cysts, and its action is dependent on its concentration, the water temperature and duration of contact. A concentration of 8 mgs per litre at 20 degrees centigrade, will destroy all pathogens if left for 10 minutes. Lower concentrations and lower water temperatures require a longer duration of action. Various preparations of iodine are available, including tincture of iodine, iodine crystals and tablets. Manufacturers instructions should be followed in each case. With tincture of iodine, adequate levels are normally achieved by using 4 drops to 1 litre of water or one drop to a glass. As with all halogens it is less effective against cryptosporidia." "There is some evidence to suggest that hypothyroidism and/or iodine deficiencies may contribute to the development of fibrocystic breast tissue. People with fibrocystic breasts experience tenderness, particularly just before menstruation. Certain foods may worsen breast tenderness such as caffeine (including from chocolate) and high fat foods.
During a physical exam, the doctor can feel cysts and fibrous (hardened) tissue. A review of clinical studies found that iodine replacement therapy (particularly for those with low levels of iodine) may improve the tenderness associated with fibrocystic breast tissue. The women taking iodine experienced very few side effects." "Iodine deficiency has also been associated with ovarian cysts, breast cancer, thyroid goiter and hypothyroidism. Recent work in the field of iodine deficiency has shown that replacement therapy decreases the risk of breast cancer and promotes the reversal of fibrocystic breast disease." "Many women with chronic vaginal symptoms use over-the-counter preparations such as iodine to relieve symptoms. Iodine, used as a douche, may reduce vaginal inflammation as well as the itching and discharge that go along with this health condition. Povidone-iodine has the advantage of iodine without the disadvantages of stinging and staining. Douche for vaginitis: generally two tablespoons of an iodine solution to one quart of warm water once per day.
Douching should not be done without first consulting your health care provider." "Iodine is commonly used as a topical treatment for wounds. Ointments containing iodine are frequently used on burns to lower the risk of infection. "Ted writes, "Iodine is taken when you suspect you have a deficiency. But it is not taken everyday at all and often it is taken once or twice a week. Only when you know you need it. Seaweed contains both iodine and bromine, which generally means you can't overdose on iodine.
The reason is simple: bromine displaces iodine. But when bromine and iodine are present together, it makes for iodine bioavailability, while bakery products high in bromine will displace the iodine. The interesting thing is when bromine and iodine (found in nature) as in seaweed are found together, once the body doesn't need iodine it can easily be removed due to the presence of bromine. I have not seen any case of excess iodine consumption from taking of seaweed, but I have seen quite often excess consumption of iodine when they are added in the salt and taken too much. The reason is nature presents us with many minerals in their respective ratios and their antagonism preventing such an overdose and allowing the body to achieve greater equilibrium. This issue appears to be consuming foods from natural rather than chemical if you fear of any possible overdose.
