Iodine

I am very confused by your report on iodine and thyroid autoimmune. Your saying to avoid sea salt because of the high iodine and yet your information goes totally against Dr David Brownstein who has helped so many people heal their thyroid by adding iodine. Even many nutritionist and natural healing doctors are using iodine now. My own thyroid seems to be much better since I’ve added Iodine salt and more seafood. In some people with thyroid issues adding iodine can cause problems but testing and how your feeling can determine if iodine is right for you.

Also you did a talk once about colloidal silver and were warning people away from it. It takes an extreme amount and years of high use to turn a person blue. In small amounts it has been shown and proven to be quite safe. While traveling once I had a severe tooth infection to the point where I was having heart palpitations and yet I started on silver and in one day the infection was gone, I kept using it for 4 more days. When I returned home I went to the dentist, no infection and never had Problem with that tooth again. Antibiotics can be very damaging and sometimes can kill people, I personally prefer silver and use antibiotics only if silver does not work.

You apparently are not interested in natural or even functional medicine and very much old school.
