Did you know that over 90% of people and pets in the U.S. are mineral deficient? And most of those people are deficient in iodine? In this video, we check in with Dr. Edward Group to discuss the health benefits of iodine.In this Dr. Group interview, he explains how low iodine levels are connected to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, and more. Iodine deficiency is now attributed as the biggest cause of low IQ and mental retardation. Good iodine levels lead to cellular apoptosis (cancer cell death), increased energy, adrenal gland repair, decrease in brain fog, a fertility boost, and much more.
Can iodine be used for pets as well? ABSOLUTELY! Continue watching to learn about: – Supplementing with pure, organic, nascent iodine (beware of buying iodine off the shelf at your local drug store!). – How iodine helps to heal the damage of endocrine-disruptors such as estrogen, birth control, glyphosate, etc. – The ultimate goal: to live a healthy lifestyle & avoid toxic chemicals – PLUS supplement with the good things while cleansing and healing your body.
Iodine Deficiencies Are a Global Issue
In many areas of Europe, Russia, Asia, Australia and Africa, iodine deficiency is a serious health concern. Scientists agree that iodine deficiency is still a serious global health issue and that an insufficient level of iodine is the most common cause of preventable brain damage in children globally. Approximately 1.9 billion people are at risk for lack of iodine and that these numbers fall heavily on unborn babies and children.
Another staggering statistic from the World Health Organization estimates that around 1 billion people will have some form of health issue due to a lack of iodine in the diet. Estimates on Latin American countries show up to 25 percent the population at risk for goiters due to faulty thyroid function from a lack of dietary iodine.
yet this concern also exists in the West. As of 1998, rates of iodine deficiency have dramatically increased in the United States over the past 20 years. The number of U.S. residents with low intake of iodine increased fourfold during that time. Lowered rates of iodine intake have been traced to dietary changes.
Iodine and the Thyroid Gland
It is simplistic to think taking iodine will solve all thyroid conditions. Some thyroid imbalances stem from a genetic condition, such as autoimmune thyroid disease.
If you have a thyroid condition, you should determine if the condition is connected to low iodine. You and your healthcare provider can generally determine this by looking at your diet and geographic location. Iodine levels can be detected through a simple urine test. A small percentage of people are iodine-sensitive so iodine supplementation should begin in small amounts to prevent a thyroid flare-up.

The Health Benefits of Nascent Iodine
is a supplemental form of iodine designed to be more bioavailable, which means your body uses it more efficiently. Below are the top benefits of supplementing with iodine:
- Keeps thyroid iodine levels in balance
- Improves thyroid and endocrine system function
- May improve emotional disorders by balancing glandular systems
- Regulates hormones associated with weight gain
- Works as a moisturizing expectorant for the respiratory tract
- Protects the thyroid from absorbing radioactive isotopes
- Assists in brain development
- May assist in reducing or preventing goiters
- Helps aid digestion, transit time and normal bowel function
- Increased energy and stamina have been reported
- Supports breast milk production and quality
- Helps balance body odors (vaginal, foot, underarm, etc.)
- Helps detoxify halogens like bromides, fluoride, and chlorine
I recommend supplementing with iodine on a regular basis and personally use a supplement called Detoxadine. Detoxadine® is manufactured with a unique transformative bio-elemental matrix using a revolutionary process and contains nano-colloidal nascent iodine.
