Hi, I don't want to get into the pros and cons here, but a few months ago I started taking iodine and have had some great results with it. I've also reduced my thyroid dosages a bit and have gotten to a point where I need more assistance with this process. I can run labs through my regular MD but I know he would not support me with this for all the obvious reasons of being part of the medical establishment. Anyway, I would like to find a very knowledgeable person to work with, either in person or via telephone/ internet. I've read Bernstein's book, and have also read the Iodine Crisis by Farrow. Unfortunately, neither offers nitty gritty advice other than advising to work with a skilled medical practitioner. I live in the NY metro area, but as I said, I think it would be possible to work with someone long distance. Any input or suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks!

Just be careful with iodine, you can get overdosed. I dunno, can you get the levels checked?

I have hashimoto's and my levels were always wacko until I started taking quercetin with bromelian and L glutathione. I also take a hair skin and nails vitamin that has some iodine in it.

I even have some hair growing back in where my hairline was receding after starting the quercetin, bromeliad and L glutathione.

Good luck!

If I were taking iodine with Hashimoto, I'd get my tpo and tgab antibodies checked again. - Since iodine is thought to increase antibody attack.

If one has general hypothyroid (not hashimto) I doubt there would be any issues with taking iodine.

You can goggle funtionalmedicine.org to find a functional Dr in your area. Some are even MD's too (good), most are chiros doing "Dr stuff" (not as good). They are like natural path Drs.
