Thyroid Health Program: Part 2

Thyroid Health Program: Part 2
The Biochemical Effects of Iodine

There is much confusion about iodine supplementation both as an optimal health and disease prevention strategy as well as a therapy for hypothyroidism.  Individuals suffering from hypothyroidism are often told to not use potassium iodide supplements and to also avoid iodine containing foods such as seaweed and shellfish over fear that they will have a reaction to iodine supplementation that could worsen their condition.  However, most people consuming a Westernized diet tend to be deficient in this highly important mineral.  So should you or should you not use a potassium iodide supplement for hypothyroidism?  Part 2 of the Thyroid Health Program explains how to read your own body to assess whether or not you need an iodine supplement, and how to properly titrate the dosage to prevent an iodine reaction causing hypothyroid and/or hyperthyroid symptoms.
