Iodine

Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa, and many viruses; indeed, of all

antiseptic preparations suitable for direct use on humans and animals and upon tissues, only iodine is

capable of killing all classes of pathogens: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria,

fungi, yeasts, viruses and protozoa. Most bacteria are killed within 15 to 30 seconds of contact.

Poor immune response is correlated with impaired thyroid function; a deficiency in iodine can greatly affect the immune system because low levels of iodine lead to problems with the thyroid gland. Dr. David Brownstein says, “Iodine has a wonderful antibiotic solution without question and most importantly I never see any of my patients complain of dysbiotic reactions from its use.”

Brownstein uses 200-300 milligrams of iodine daily, with higher doses for more serious and difficult diseases. In perspective, this seemingly “high” dose is still far lower than what the 11th edition of the 1910-1911 Encyclopedia Britannica cites as the “usual” doses of 300-900 milligrams (300,000-900,000

micrograms!) of iodine daily. This is over 2,000 times more than common recommendations. “At 6 grams daily (which is 6 million mcg/day or 6,000 mg/day!), a much higher dose, iodine has been used to cure syphilis, skin lesions, and chronic lung disease,” says Dr. Gabriel Cousens.


“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 Dr. Gabriel 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,” he states. Though no one alive today uses such high dosages cancer patients should take notice and not be shy about how much iodine they should take.

Dr. Michael B. Schachter says, “The treatment dose when a person is iodine insufficient is generally between 12.5 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 and a

year to become iodine sufficient while ingesting a dosage of 12.5 mg of iodine daily. However, the patient needs to be monitored closely with awareness of possible side effects and detoxification reactions.”

Iodine is safe and easy to give children in liquid form. When they get sick iodine is one of the first medicinals to go for. Personally, when I use it, I do not bother to count the drops I just squirt a dropper into a large glass of water. People with preexisting thyroid conditions need to be more careful and possibly take bovine hormone with iodine as well as selenium and vitamin E.


As early as June 1, 1905 an article was printed in the New York Times[1] about the successful use of iodine for consumption/tuberculosis. Though iodine kills most pathogens on the skin within 90 seconds, its use as an antibiotic/antiviral/antifungal has been completely ignored by modern medicine so we do not hear one word about it as the coronavirus spreads.

With iodine in your pocket you don’t have to worry so much about viral infections if you know how to use it effectively. “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,” writes Dr. David Derry of Canada. In 1945, a breakthrough occurred when Dr. 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. Derry reminds us that a long time ago students in classrooms were protected from influenza by iodine aerosol therapy. Aerosol iodine also is effective against freshly sprayed influenza virus.

Dr. David Brownstein says, “Iodine is essential to not only fighting off an infection it is necessary for proper immune system functioning. There is no bacteria, virus, parasite or fungus that is known to

be resistant to iodine.”


Metabole supplies Lugols Iodine in 50 ml dropper bottles. It is a 7% liquid formulation providing 7.5 g/100ml. An easy tolerance test requires one drop rubbed on the skin of the wrist. Intolerance will manifest as strong itching, blistering or swelling. Rapid (within 3 hours) absorption of the brown stain on the wrist skin indicates a deficiency. Saturation is indicated by a residual (after 3 hours) brown stain which fails to absorb.

Scholars and researchers can get good information from the book by Dr Mark Sircus seen below.
