Iodine Deficiency Diseases

See our Testimonials (Left Panel) for the complete listings by symptoms. Here are a few of the more surprising subjects.

Alcohol Addiction Cure

We have a curezone member who discovered a procedure to treat his severe alcohol addiction. His story is in Testimonials, chapter Addictions, the b3nault Procedure. Will this also help to cure drug addiction? Please leave us your testimonials at the Curezone. We later discovered his addiction was the result of severe Candida & his iodine supplements were keeping his Candida under control. More to come as we focus on his Candida.

Asthma & Lung Disease Breakthrough 

Vitamin C to Bowel Tolerance may help asthma:

This section is a summary of the research on lung disease. If you are skeptical of the claims made by iodine doctors & the unsolicited testimonials here, then please visit this research file, 

    • Whatever you are smoking, STOP IT NOW. Our delicate lungs cannot tolerate smoke of any kind.
    • Spray bleach or chlorine on any mold in your home. Video - Mold is not allowed in the home. Mold spores WILL devastate our health.
    • Iodine Deficiency, antibiotics & steroids used in asthma inhalers add up to SERIOUS lung problems including Candida Overgrowth that promotes asthma & other lung disease. Dr. McCombs:

Congested Lungs

Turmeric Powder helps
When my chest cold becomes intolerable, Turmeric powder has been a big help to clear congested lungs overnight. Mix 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder with ascorbic acid crystals (Vitamin C) and 1/2 tsp of sea salt in a small glass of water. More details, Google "Turmeric Immune System." 

Surprise, we have been lied to by the medical quacks! Potassium Iodide (SSKI) has been prescribed by doctors as the very best expectorant to clear out congested lungs for over 100 years!  Modern medicine cannot make any money on these superior old treatments, so they are censored & buried. We have discovered that plain old Potassium Iodide (SSKI) reduces lung congestion with surprising success, and better than anything I have tried.

SSKI is the natural form of liquid iodine called "Potassium Iodide" found in sea foods. The historical procedure is to simply take 10 to 20 drops or more  (30mg per drop) of SSKI daily in a glass of water. Iodine doctors also recommend taking the co-supplements to avoid thyroid damage and to help with possible detox symptoms.   The results for my own asthma were amazing!  In my 30 years of suffering asthma, I have never seen anything like this!

See "Iodine by Trapper," left menu, for more information on SSKI. See the details & history of SSKI being used to clear congested lungs here:   

Note: Pima is one of the prescription Tradenames for SSKI prescribed by Doctors to clear lung congestion even today, but only if you are LUCKY enough to have an old time doctor that is trained on iodine! Younger doctors know nothing of iodine and only promote the Big Pharma "Approved Drugs."
             Dosage SSKI 300 to 600mg every 6 to 8 hours. 
As we can see, doctors routinely prescribe dosages > 1 gram when using SSKI for chest congestion. 

Asthma Breakthrough: Candida Fungus! 
Bottom line: Doctors have discovered that drugs routinely used to treat lung disease short term actually makes these conditions WORSE long term because they promote Candida Overgrowth ! When I suffered Asthma for the first time, the doctor blamed my dog and said dog dander caused my allergy. Funny thing, we gave away the dog and yet the Asthma continued on for the next 30 years. WHY??? SSKI definitely has something to do with this mystery.

What will actually cure Candida and harmful Bacteria in our lungs?  
SSKI certainly helps, but is it a cure? Our resident Guru Trapper reports that SSKI only helps as a decongestant & that the cure for his emphysema was: CS & H2O2 in a nebulizer - Trapper's message:   This website needs to back up Trapper's opinion & experience with proof that will satisfy the most skeptical among us.  Lung disease is too important and we need all the proven facts that we can find to keep this web site and Curezone claims credible. 

Studies of Colloidal Silver (CS) & Hydrogen Peroxide (H202)
Doctors and research reports have proven that CS or H202 kills fungus & harmful bacteria in our lungs when used in a mister or in a nebulizer.

Bowel Problems

The stomach & bowels also suffer from iodine deficiency:

Brain Fog, Depression

Author Lynne Farrow explains her typical symptoms,"For years I endured headaches with brain fog so bad that I lost my driver’s license for missing stop signs and speeding. I slept so much my family called me Rip Van Winkle. Finally, I could no longer work full time, even with caffeine and painkillers. I went from teaching college full time to working as a journalist part time."  For more shocking testimonials, see "Brain Fog, Depression" in our testimonials
The iodine doctors also explain, People with diets severely deficient in iodine can have children with cretinism which is severe mental and physical growth retardation. 


Amazingly, the Iodine Doctors explain how Iodine kills common Cancers. See Cancers, left panel for more.

Candida Overgrowth

"If you have ever taken an antibiotic at any time in your life,
then you have systemic fungal Candida." –
Dr. Jeffrey McCombs, The Candida Expert

The list of symptoms from Systemic Candida are simply shocking and mirror many of the symptoms of iodine deficiency. Are you suffering from iodine deficiency or from systemic candida fungus? See this absolutely shocking list of Candida Symptoms. 

Candida is a Progressive Disease. The 5 Stages of Candida Growth
Candida can be caused by multiple factors: too much sugar, antibiotics & steroids and more are factors. Candida & Iodine Deficiency symptoms are clearly inter-related. It has been estimated that 99% of the population are suffering from Systemic Candida fungus infecting our organs, mouth, vagina, lungs & more.

Candida Destroyed by Colloidal Silver
Colloidal Silver Special Report 

Erectile Dysfunction, Hardening Arteries, Heart Disease, Poor Health

0514-whit-nitric-oxide-chart-retina.jpgThis is a special report because so many things related to iodine, drugs & nutrition can cause ED. Many older men need help and the ED Drugs may have too many side effects. 

Dr. Ignarro won the Nobel Prize for his discovery of Nitric Oxide that regulates & controls our blood vessels & arteries. Simple supplements and diet changes can boost our Nitric Oxide to cure/prevent Erectile Dysfunction, Heart Disease & Hardening Arteries. This has proven to be miraculous.

Dr. Louis Ignarro discovered "the atom" of cardiovascular health--a tiny molecule called Nitric Oxide. NO, as it is known by chemists, is a signaling molecule produced by the body, and is a vasodilator that helps control blood flow to every part of the body. Dr. Ignarro's findings led to the development of Viagra. Nitric Oxide has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system as well.

NO relaxes and enlarges the blood vessels, prevents blood clots that trigger strokes and heart attacks, and regulates blood pressure and the accumulation of plaque in the blood vessels. Dr. Ignarro's current research indicates that Nitric Oxide may help lower cholesterol by facilitating the actions of statin drugs like Lipitor. 

The goal of the regimen presented in the book, "NO More Heart Disease" is to age proof the cardiovascular system, keeping the vascular network clean and elastic through enhanced NO productivity. The plan is easy-to-follow without extreme lifestyle adjustments, involving taking supplements to stimulate Nitric Oxide production, incorporating NO friendly food into the diet, and a moderate exercise program.

Female - Male Diseases

Iodine doctors report that women suffer fibrocystic breast disease, ovary cysts, thyroid, hormonal problems, uterus fibroids/cysts/endo. Women also suffer 12 times more thyroid problems than men because the female organs are in competition for what little iodine is available. See testimonials.
Iodine doctors also report that men suffer from iodine deficiency. Prostate, Testicular, low testosterone with resulting erectile dysfunction and hypothyroid. See Prostate below.    

If you are hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, goiter do not take iodine until you read these doctor reports.
