HEALTH PROFESSIONAL NOTES ON THE BENEFICIAL USE OF IOSOL
There are more than seventy signs of thyroid imbalances (see a few below), which may impair your patient's health. As the normal thyroid regulates metabolism, imbalances in the thyroid may first come to your attention as decreasing levels of energy - tiredness, lethargy, muscle aches and the like. With just a few drops of Iosol (water-soluble non toxic ammonium iodide), metabolism can be dramatically changed to support as a food supplement.
The most common complaints, after low energy levels are: depression, cold hands and feet, inability to gain or lose weight, loss of hair, brittle or irregular nails, redness and chaffing behind the heels. As with all issues of your health you should see your health professional whether Iosol or any health product is appropriate for your condition.
AN UNDER-FUNCTIONING THYROID IS OFTEN UNDETECTED ON A BLOOD PANEL
According to Broda Barnes, M.D. the blood test criterion for thyroid disease should never be the "be-all or end-all" in the diagnosis. This is just one parameter, and often an inadequate one! The best test for hypothyroidism is the basal metabolic rate (BMR):
Place a thermometer by your bed. Shake the thermometer down to below 96 degrees.
Immediately upon waking place the thermometer under your armpit and leave it there for 10 minutes before getting up.
The reading should be between 98.2 degrees and 97.2. Outside that reading generally indicates a thyroid imbalance.
Other ways to check the thyroid are TBM, AK therapy localize, iodine skin test. Jeffrey Bland, Ph.D. says "there are certain other blood test criteria to corroborate the hypothyroid diagnosis with the Barnes basal metabolic rate.
Cholesterol in excess of 252
Triglyceride level greater than 200
Total CPK level above 30
Bunt to creatinine ration less than 12
LDH level greater than 40
Cholesterol to HDL level greater than 5
Increased B-2 fraction in lipoprotein electrophoresis.
A note on dosage: On the Iosol bottle, the Food Supplement Panel gives directions for us that is to meet the recommended daily requirement (150 mcg.) as stated by the FDA, It further reads Or use as recommended by your Doctor or Health Professional. Some patient's just need a few drops to start. For some patients a safe loading dose is a typical dosage of ten to fifteen drops a day for ten days to two weeks. You can back off to a maintenance dose of one (1.83 mg.) a drop to five drops a day or none at all for a period of time. Then re-check your symptoms with your nutrition health professional for adjustments.
Do not use sodium or a potassium iodide in the above protocol. Those iodides are not water soluble. These iodides can cause some patients allergic reactions, heart palpitations, skin eruptions, stomach distress and depress the thyroid. (see below list) Iosol does not do this.

SIGNS OF POSSIBLE IODINE DEFICIENCY:
Children: inhibited development
Cold hands and feet
Enlargement of glands, other than thyroid
Incomplete functioning of glands, especially thyroid
Low basal metabolic rate
Low blood and saliva iodine levels
Nerve trunk pressure
Overabundance of mucous secretions
Radiation exposure - thyroid gland symptoms resulting from accidental or wartime exposure to radiation.
Reduced flow of endo-secretions
Cartilage tenderness, intercostals rib tenderness
Cellular Exhaustion susceptible to immune deficiencies
