Iodine, Bromine, Red Spot, Cherry Angiomas
Iodine releases Bromine into the system. Bromine is a sedative. That accounts for the great sleepiness some people experience from Iodine.
Cherry angiomas are caused by bromine poisoning. Research conducted by Drs. A. D. Cohena, E. Cagnanob, and D. A. Vardya, shows the correlation between bromine poisoning and cherry angiomas.
What is bromine?
Bromine is a chemical element that is found in many processed food sources such as bread. It is used to make food last longer before going stale and increase the shelf life.
Bromine was actually used during the World Wars to suppress the sexual drive of service men overseas.
Bromine is toxic to the human body and can be somewhat carcinogenic.
Bromine can build up in your body and take over cell iodine receptors because the atomic structure of bromine is so similar to iodine that the human body is mistaken. Eventually there will be nowhere to store this excess of bromine and from my own research and studying have realised that it is finally stored in the skin, thus resulting in cherry angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots.
There is only really one way to flush your body of bromine and that’s by consuming good sources of iodine.
Why do we accumulate excess bromine?
We really have no way to process excess bromine and with modern day diets, we eat foods containing less and less iodine. A long while ago, companies started to add iodine to salt (iodized salt) however with the health scares of using too much salt on our foods, we are not getting enough iodine.
The RDA of iodine in the United Kingdom is currently set at 100 micrograms (100 µg). However, from research it is found that the people of mainland Japan are taking in as much as 12.5mg (12500 µg) daily from food such as sea kelp and certain kinds of fish.
The Japanese are one of the healthiest nations with extremely low cancer rates and low thyroid function problems. Could this be why?
Iodine rids the body of bromine and heavy metals, halides and toxins.
Every cell in our body is programmed to use iodine in one way or another. Iodine is also the partner to the programmed cell death and generating new cells in the body. Most of our iodine is stored in our thyroid gland and this gland uses the most iodine for its functions.
Recommended Iodine Supplementation program
•50 mg Iodoral minimum for breast cancer (may start with 12.5 mg).
Some practitioners may recommend another form of iodine such as Lugol’s solution.
Iodoral is the Lugol’s formula in tablet form especially designed to avoid gastric irritation.
•Vitamin C – 3,000 mg per day (more may be necessary to detox bromide).
•300-600 mg magnesium oxide (Iodine Investigation Project participants prefer magnesium glycinate or magnesium citrate.)
•200 mcg selenium. The selenomethionine version is preferred by many.
•500 mg niacin (B3) twice a day (NOT niacinamide). Start lower to avoid flush.
•100 mg Vitamin B2 three times a day.
•A comprehensive vitamin and nutrition program.
From my own research I also recommend the following in addition to the above
•Bathing twice weekly in Epsom Bath Salts (Magnesium Sulphate) to increase your magnesium intake as it’s best absorbed and utilised through the skin.
•Daily use of a Liquid Zeolite detox programme.
Symptoms of Bromide toxicity:
- Acne type skin eruptions
- Body odor
- Brain fog
- Dark thoughts
- Dream changes
- Dry mouth
- Eyelid twitching
- Foot twitching
- Hair loss
- Hormone changes
- Increased salivation
- Kidney pain
- Leg and hip ache
- Metallic taste
- Mouth and tongue soresand cuts or "sore mouth"
- Odd swallowing sensation
- Sinus ache
- Skin "cuts"
- Tingling in hands or feet
- Unusual urine odor
- Urethral spasm, frequent urination (sometimes mistaken for urinary infection)
- Vision changes
Bromide is found in Mt Dew and Gatorade, many vegetable oils, Inhalers and Nasal sprays and bread products. These should be avoided in the future is you don’t want to mess of the effects of iodine on the breast and the thyroid.
HOW TO START DETOXING
- One to 1 1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt a day
- Continue 50 mg of iodine/iodide (lodoral)
- Supplement 1000mg of B3/day
- Take Vit. C spread out throughout the day along (10,000mg/daily total)
- with the Iodine Companion Nutrients.
- Drinking more water, at least eight 12 oz glasses a day to flush your system
- Epsom salt baths containing 2 cups of Epsom salt – twice a week
- According to Iodine users with skin symptoms, adding 25 mg zinc often helps.
- Supplement 200 mg of B2 daily
