Exposure to the ‘competitive halide elements’ may cause iodine displacement –
Fluoride: In some toothpastes, medications and water supplies
Bromide/Bromine: In fumigants, some anti-bacterials (pools), medications. Brominated fire retardants used extensively in new carpets, sofas, furnishings, etc and new cars, computers, TV’s
Chlorine: In pools, bleaches, disinfectants
I recommend it as to lose body fat your hormone system must be as healthy and efficient as possible. It can also help your circulation, cold hands, feet and normal sweating response to heat. PMT/ PMS symptoms too. I use Lugols Iodine at 12% strength, a 3 month course of 4 drops a day will clear your system of halide elements and get you on track for normal endocrine function. Then one drop a day will maintain healthy levels.
