【5%魯格氏碘液 】

  • 5% Lugol’s Iodine

    成分

    比例

    5%

    碘化鉀

    10%

    85%

  • 10克碘化鉀加入85克水,混合均勻後再加入5克的碘元素。

【碘的檢驗】

  • 細胞會吸收碘,吸收達到飽和後,多餘的碘就會排出。

  • 碘的測試法(Iodine loading test)
    服用50mg的碘/碘化鉀,然後收集24小時的尿液,測量從尿液中排出的碘量。健康的人會排出95%以上的碘,如果排放量低於90%就算是缺碘。 但是這個方法還要考慮溴卡位的問題,如果體內過多的溴佔據了接受體(碘與溴共用接受體),碘就無法進入細胞內而排出體外,形成假性的高排放量,所以我們另外還要再測量溴的濃度,如果溴的濃度超過10mg/L,就要懷疑是溴卡位的問題,不是碘已經飽和了,事實上,碘還是嚴重缺乏的。

【碘與鹵素家族的競爭】

  • 氟、氯、溴、碘都是屬於鹵素家族,彼此互相競爭。換句話說,氟、氯、溴會排擠掉碘,碘也會排擠掉氟、氯、溴。如果甲狀腺素的碘被其他鹵素取代了,就會喪失甲狀腺素的功能,即使抽血檢驗,甲狀腺素仍然顯示正常濃度。

  • 攝取碘可以擠掉其他鹵素,但是當這些鹵素釋出時,會出現一些排毒症狀,例如:甲狀腺症狀更明顯、青春痘、臉部膿皰、噁心嘔吐、易怒....等。

  • 碘的最適當攝取量必須隨著體內鹵素多寡來調整,如果體內鹵素多,碘也要跟著多才能擠掉鹵素。

【碘的吸收與配套】

  • 雌激素會妨礙甲狀腺吸收碘。

  • 吸收碘,必須補充B2、B3等輔助因子。

  • 搭配碘的其他營養素

    維他命C

    每日3~10克。

    每日200~400mcg (selenomethionine)
    • 排毒

    • 製造甲狀腺素

    粗鹽

    每日0.5茶匙凱爾特鹽(Celtic)。
    • 支持腎上腺

    •  氯化鈉的氯會趕走溴

    • 支持symporter

    每日400mg。(或300~600mg)
    • 協助生化反應

    ATP CoFactor (B2、B3)

    每日2次,每次100mg B2與500mg B3 (niacinamide劑型)。

    • B2與B3會刺激NADPH氧化酶系統的氧化磷酸化反應(oxidative phsphorylation),產生ATP與副產品--雙氧水(H2O2),接著雙氧水再 與TPO酵素合作把iodide氧化成iodine)。

【碘的補充時機】

  • 隨餐,避免空腹服用。(編者補充:碘的味道很嗆,直接泡水喝會很難接受。)

  • 下午2點以後不要服用碘,容易造成興奮,影響睡眠。

碘的需求量】

  • Dr. Guy Abraham表示,每日碘的需求量是13毫克,相當於25% Lugol’s Iodine。其中,甲狀腺每日需求6毫克,乳房每日需求5毫克,剩下的2毫克是其他部分的需求量。諷刺的是,RDA建議值是每日150微克,不到Guy Abraham建議的1/86(13000/150),(1毫克=1000微克)

     

    碘的每日需求量

    甲狀腺

    6mg

    乳房

    5mg

    其他組織

    例如:卵巢、腎上腺、胸腺、下視丘、腦下垂體。

    2mg

  • 全身儲存的碘總量是1500mg,其中,皮膚儲存了20%,肌肉儲存了32%。而甲狀腺最高只能儲存50mg,大約佔3.3%而已,並不是最多的。

  • 碘的服用多久才能達到飽和?Dr. Guy Abraham指出,每天服用50mg的碘,要達6個月之久,才能達到90%的飽和度。服用時間的長短與體內囤積的鹵素多寡有關,有時候甚至需要好幾年的時間才能排掉鹵素,讓碘有機會進入細胞內。(有一說是每日50mg,三個月達到飽和。每日12.5mg,一年達到飽和。)

【碘的劑型與劑量】

  • 150磅體重約服用15% Lugol’s Iodine(標準滴管20=1cc,每一滴是0.05cc,含6.25mg的碘。)

  • 分子或碘化物,不能只補充其中一種, 必須二種都補充,因為身體不同組織需要不同型態的碘。以前認為身體可以自由轉換這二種不同的型態,後來才發現身體做不到,所以才需要二者都補充。

    吸收碘分子的組織器官

    乳房、攝護腺、胃

    吸收碘化物的組織器官

    乳房、甲狀腺、唾液腺 、皮膚

  • 服用高劑量碘,不良反應大約2~4天就能感受到,正面反應則是1天就有感。但是如果劑量太低,就不會有任何感覺,必須追加劑量才有感。有時候碘會擠出太多鹵素,導致身體來不及排放至些毒素,造成二次中毒反應,如果反應太劇烈就必須調降劑量,讓身體排毒的速度能跟得上。

  • 一般人每日碘劑量是12~50mg,醫療級劑量是每日50mg起跳,因為當今環境的鹵素添加物實在太多了,例如:麵包、牙膏、自來水、 塑膠面板、牙科填補材料...等。

  • 癌患的碘劑量大約是每日50~300mg。缺乏碘與硒,基因p53就無法啟動凋零作用(apoptosis)來中止癌細胞的無限繁殖。

  • 碘劑量過高會引起甲狀腺亢進,例如:每日超過1000mg。

  • 日本婦女每日平均攝取12mg的碘,約25% Lugol’s Iodine的碘含量。

【碘與輻射】

  • 碘分為【輻射碘】【非輻射碘】服用非輻射碘可以保護身體免於輻射碘的傷害,這也是為什麼一般人買不到碘,因為碘是戰略管制物質,它是各國政府儲備用來應付核戰的戰備物質。

【碘的歷史

  • 1811年,Bernard Courtois在製造火藥的過程中,想要從海帶中提煉鉀與鈉的化合物,但是卻無意中加入太多的硫酸,結果冒出了一股紫色的煙,於是就命名這個紫色物質為Iodine。這個字是來自希臘字iodes,紫色的意思。

  • 1820年,Jean Francois Coindet發表碘可以治療甲狀腺腫大(goiter)。這也是史上第一次使用單一元素來治療疾病的案例。後來,Jean-Baptiste Boussingault在1842年印證了Coindet的療法。Boussingault觀察到在銀礦區工作的人不會罹患甲狀腺腫大,因為這些工人都飲用了礦區含碘的地下水。可惜100年後,大約1924年,美國才開始把碘加入食鹽中來治療甲狀腺腫大。

Iodine Supplements and Dosages

Published on March 27, 2017 in Iodine

 

 

Iodine is necessary for the proper function of many of the body’s tissues including the breasts, pancreas, brain, stomach, adrenal glands, skin, salivary glands, and cerebral spinal fluid. Iodine deficiency can lead to a dysfunction of these tissues and cause symptoms such as dry mouth, dry skin, reduced alertness, brain fog, fibromyalgia, fibrocystic breasts, and many others. Some studies have shown that iodine deficiency leads to a higher risk of developing various cancers, especially of the breast, prostate, and ovaries. Do not wait for any of these symptoms to arrive, everyone today will benefit from higher iodine intake.

Humans tolerate large doses of iodine. The ultra-high doses that were used a century ago are helpful in medical emergencies—specifically when facing antibiotic resistant infections, viruses and stubborn fungal and yeast infections. Iodine's true role—making up more than 1/2 of the body's Immune System—is not well understood. Deficiencies in iodine have a great effect on the immune system and its response to infectious diseases including cancer, which in many cases, up to 40 percent, are caused by infections.

The National Health and Nutrition Survey undertaken by the CDC showed iodine levels falling over 50% in the last 30 years. In 1940, the average American got 800 micrograms of iodine in their diet. In 1995 we averaged 135 micrograms, an 83% decline! The Japanese consume 89 times more iodine then Americans, due to their daily consumption of sea vegetables, and they have reduced rates of many chronic diseases, including the lowest rates of cancer in the world. Why is your oncologist so ignorant, why does your government not inform you, why do medical organizations and the medical press promote everything but iodine for the treatment and prevention of cancer?

Even at low dosages, iodine is a powerhouse. So effective is iodine that aerosols can be effective in sterilizing a room at levels not even detectable by humans. However, Dr. David Derry says, “Dietary iodine found in iodized salt is below the amounts needed to fill mucus defense roles. To protect themselves, people wishing to boost their defense against infections should use Iodine supplement in their diets. Why would people need the larger doses of iodine? Why have iodine levels fallen 50% in the last 30 years? As I pondered these questions, I came to the conclusion that the toxicity of modern life must be impacting iodine levels. It is well known that the toxic halides, fluoride and bromide, having a similar structure as iodine, can competitively inhibit iodine absorption and binding in the body. Because of the elevated levels of toxic halides in the environment and in the food supply, iodine levels have not only fallen but larger amounts of iodine are necessary to correct iodine deficiency as well as to promote a detoxifying effect of heavy metals.”

When treating life-threatening diseases we do not have months to fool around with low dosages. The anti-microbial process of iodine quickly kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, and various other microorganisms if a high enough dosage is used. We need to dial up iodine levels quickly when we use it to fight infections. Iodine can be taken internally in large quantities and will have the same effect internally as it does on external surfaces. In addition, as in breast cancer, we often need to get it concentrated to certain tissues or organs and we do that by painting the breasts with iodine.

Just to give you an idea of how high iodine dosages have been taken to in the past we have to revisit the 1930s when iodine was still a universal medicine, present in the US Pharmacopeia and was used at much higher dosages than anyone even dreams of using today. The usual dose for treatment was 300 mgs (46 drops of full strength Lugol’s) to 1 gm (1000 mg, 154 drops).

“Extremely high doses of iodine can have serious side effects, but only a small fraction of such extreme doses are necessary to kill influenza viruses,” continues Derry who tells us, “In 1945, a breakthrough occurred when J.D. Stone and Sir McFarland Burnet (who later went on to win a Nobel Prize for his Clonal Selection Theory) exposed mice to lethal effects of influenza viral mists. The lethal disease was prevented by putting iodine solution on mice snouts just prior to placing them in chambers containing influenza viruses.”

Dr. David Brownstein says, “Of all the elements known so far to be essential for human health, iodine is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, iodine is the safest of all the essential trace elements, being the only one that can be administered safely for long periods of time to large numbers of patients in daily amounts as high as 100,000 times the RDA.” The current US daily recommended allowance (RDA) for iodine is set at 150 mcg for non-pregnant adults.

Dr. Michael B. Schachter says, “The treatment dose when a person is iodine insufficient is generally between 12.5 mg and 50 mg daily. Preliminary research indicates that if a person is iodine insufficient, it takes about three months to become iodine sufficient while ingesting a dosage of 50 mg of iodine daily and a year to achieve that while ingesting a dosage of 12.5 mg of iodine daily.

For those who are interested in maintained dosages after disease and deficiencies have been dealt with understand that your thyroid gland alone needs about 6 mg of iodine per day for optimal function; the breasts of a woman will need approximately 5 mg/day (women with larger breasts need more); and other body tissues such as your adrenal glands, thymus, ovaries, hypothalamus, and pituitary gland need about 2 mg/day. Thus for optimal wellness adults should consider approximately10 to 12 mg/day.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens wrote, “Recently Dr. Mercola surprisingly stated that the highest amount of daily iodine intake should be no more than 400 micrograms. This is only slightly higher than the FDA recommendation, which is 150-290 micrograms daily, dependent upon age, gender and life cycle. However, it is dramatically less than what some of the leading iodine medical experts suggest, as closer to, at least, 12-18 milligrams daily, approximately 45 times higher. Why this discrepancy? And how can Dr. Mercola, who is often so correct in his understanding, in my opinion, miss the mark exponentially?”

Cousens states, “Historically, as early as 1911, (11th edition of the 1910-1911 Encyclopedia Britannica) people normally took between 300,000-900,000 micrograms daily without incident. This is over 2,000 times more than Dr. Mercola’s recommendation. How is it that now only 1/5,000th of this dose is now considered safe? In 1948, there was a poorly performed and, since then, never replicated study alleging what is known as the Wolff-Chaikoff effect. The Wolff-Chaikoff effect suggested that theoretically hypothyroidism could occur as a result of excess iodine. This study indicated a decreased dosage to 2 milligrams daily would be safer. (This is still an amount 5 times higher than what Dr. Mercola is recommending.) Even the Food and Nutritional Board at the Institute of Medicine has set the tolerable upper limit of 1,100 micrograms of iodine daily (3 times higher than Dr. Mercola’s recommendation). Other researchers have used between 3,000 and 6,000 micrograms/day to prevent goiter (14 times higher than Dr. Mercola’s recommendation). Iodine is found in every single one of our body’s hundred trillion cells. Without adequate iodine levels life is impossible. Iodine is the universal health nutrient and brings health on many levels.”

One of my neighbors, who had cancer, visited the Gerson Clinic in Mexico and came back with a protocol suggesting one drop of Lugol’s a day. I of course have him taking much more. When I take, I do not count the drops. Easier and more efficient to just use a dropper or two though there are iodine sensitive people who need to be extremely cautious about dosages especially when just starting iodine supplementation.

Dr. David Brownstein said, “After testing individuals and finding low iodine levels, I began to use smaller milligram amounts of iodine/iodide (6.25 mg/day). Upon retesting these individuals 1-2 months later, little progress was made. I therefore began using higher milligram doses (6.25-50 mg) to increase the serum levels of iodine. It was only with these higher doses that I began to see clinical improvement as well as positive changes in the laboratory tests.” Brownstein has sometimes used between 200 and 300 milligrams of iodine daily, with higher doses for more serious and difficult diseases.

“At 6 grams daily (which is 6 million micrograms/day or 6,000 milligrams/day!), a much higher dose, iodine has been used to cure syphilis, skin lesions, and chronic lung disease,” says Cousens. “From a larger physiological perspective, it is important to realize that the thyroid is only one gland of many glands and tissues that needs iodine. Other glands/organs/systems with high iodine uptake are the breasts, ovaries, cervix, blood, lymph, bones, gastric mucosal, salivary, adrenal, prostate, colon, thymus, lungs, bladder, kidney, and skin. Iodine is found and used in every hormonal receptor in the body.”

Dr. George Flechas has found that iodine can reduce the need for insulin in diabetic patients, using 50 to 100 mg of iodine per day. Of 12 patients, 6 were able to completely come off their medications with random glucose readings below 100 mg/dl and a HbA1c less than 5.8 (normal), and the other 6 were able to reduce the amount and/or number of medications needed to control their diabetes.

Dr. Hulda Clark said, “Six drops of Lugol's solution can end it all for Salmonella. If you have gas and bloating, pour yourself 1/2 glass of water. Add 6 drops of Lugol's (not more, not less), stir with wood or plastic, and drink all at once. The action is noticeable in an hour. Take this dose 4 times a day, after meals and at bedtime, for 3 days in a row, then as needed. This eradicates even a stubborn case of Salmonella. Notice how calming 6 drops of Lugol's can be, soothing a manic stage and bringing a peaceful state where anxiety ruled before.”

Retired biochemist and toxicologist Walter Last has this to say about Lugol’s:

“Lugol's solution is an internal iodine solution designed to eliminate Candida and possibly viruses and other microbes from the bloodstream. Take a test drop in liquid other then just water to make it taste less strong. If this does not cause an allergic reaction, continue to take 4 x 6 drops daily in liquid or mixed with food, but not together with vitamins A, C, E, grape seed extract or cysteine. Iodine is an oxidant and it is best to reduce the intake of antioxidants while using it.”

“If the blood was contaminated, then you may initially experience a die-off reaction of the Candida, causing weakness and possibly headache or nausea. If this happens cut temporarily back on the amount of Lugol's solution and drink plenty of water and diluted teas or juices. Continue for 3 weeks, but interrupt if you develop a serious reaction. Do not take the iodine for more than 3 weeks at high dosages as that interferes with thyroid activity. If necessary repeat the course after several months.”

Gradual Dose Buildup

Many people will find that it is important to build up gradually in order to experience the least amount of detoxification reaction from taking iodine. It is best when using strong chelators, which iodine is, to moderate the amount of detoxification symptoms or what is called the Herxemeirs reaction, which is the experience of poisons being dumped into the blood stream from the cells or from large-scale yeast die offs. This is most readily controlled with iodine in the Nascent atomic form simply because it is so easy to control and regulate low dosages.

Iodine sensitive and thyroid compromised patients should read Dr. David Brownstein’s works on iodine and thyroid conditions. Many people are already severely thyroid compromised and are on drugs that complicate things.

Supplementing with iodine can replenish your iodine stores while flushing out poisons. People usually do not experience the negative effects of some type of detoxification when using iodine unless they are removing unusually high levels of bromide and fluoride. Most people actually notice increased energy, better sleep, and mental clarity. Over the last 30 years, our iodine intake has declined 50%, while the ingestion of toxic competing halogens (bromine, fluorine, chlorine, and perchlorate) has dramatically increased.

Iodine Products

 

 

 

These are the two iodine products I use and recommend. The Nascent Iodine is better for iodine sensitive individuals and for children where lower dosages are needed and recommended. Lugol’s is less expensive and better for transdermal applications as well as higher oral dosages. When I take iodine orally, I also drop in a good amount of an exceptionally strong liquid selenium into the glass because even a small amount of selenium reduces the chances of dying of cancer by almost fifty percent. There are other products in solid form but have never used or recommended them.

Bottom Line

Without iodine to control infection, surgery and hospitals in general become inherently more dangerous. For that matter, in the future, without iodine, no one would go into a hospital unless they absolutely had to because of all the germs on floors and other surfaces and floating around in the air and nothing the doctors will give in terms of antibiotics will help because they have already created so many antibiotic resistant strains of pathogens

The last thing we need to be afraid of is iodine used in high enough dosages to take down infections that are life-threatening. Do not be shy about administering high dosages unless it is the first administration of iodine to a thyroid-compromised patient. That said, if there is time, always start out with low dosages. It is like putting your toe in hot water to see if you can get safely into the tub. Check out your sensitivity to iodine if you are a first time user.
