Iodine Benefits & Deficiency: "Doc Talks" with Dr. Daniel Nuzum

Video Transcript

Jonathan Hunsaker: What are the benefits of iodine? Should you be taking it? Stay tuned and let’s find out.
Jonathan Hunsaker here with Organixx. Thanks again for watching. Today we’re going to talk about iodine, the benefits of iodine, should you be taking iodine, and everything iodine-related. So, let’s go to Doc Nuzum to find out right now.
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: Iodine is one of my favorite nutrients. Iodine was discovered in 1811. Iodine actually became the first modern medical treatment. It was the first time in medicine that one remedy was used to treat one disease, and that was when iodine was used to treat goiters. Iodine eventually became one of the primary antibiotics. It was used orally as an antibiotic—it was used topically as an antibiotic. Still today, we do use iodine in surgical rooms. We use it to paint over surgical wounds and things like that to make sure that they don’t get infected.
But iodine is actually an essential nutrient in every cell in our body. The tissue that uses the most iodine in our body is our thyroid. It’s interesting. In men, we have the thyroid, then our reproductive system, then our prostate, have the descending highest concentrations of iodine in our bodies. In women, the thyroid, then the ovaries, then the breasts, and then the uterus, in that descending concentration of iodine per organ there.
So, it’s interesting that all of our hormone-producing glands have a lot of iodine, and iodine was used for years and years and years as a hormone tonic, as a remedy for menopause, for prostate issues, and so on and so forth. Today, we know that the body will hold up to 1,500 mg of iodine and that our thyroid itself will hold up to 50 mg of iodine. And those stores have to be replenished consistently, on a daily basis if possible.
We know from Dr. Brownstein out of Detroit, with his research, we find that 93% or more of the US population is deficient in iodine. There are all kinds of benefits to using iodine.
The things that we find that point to iodine deficiency are the inability to lose weight, cold hands, and feet, heart arrhythmias, hormonal imbalances. Also, it plays a role in some of the emotional issues, bipolar type issues, and things like that.
When people take iodine, their hormones start to level out, your thyroid health improves, your metabolism is improved. There are all kinds of different things that it seems to really help.
One of the things that we notice is that the body’s basal temperature starts to normalize. People with iodine deficiency almost always have low body temperatures. One of the things associated with low body temperatures is the nasty C-word, cancer. People with lower body temperatures are more prone to developing cancer. And what we’ve found is when people are consuming iodine, their body temperature starts to come back to normal. It’s really a pretty profound nutrient. I love iodine.
Jonathan Hunsaker: I usually don’t do this, but I’m going to take a second because Organixx has one of the only USDA-certified organic iodines on the market. It is phenomenal. When I started taking it—I mean within a week or two, I personally started feeling a difference. So, I’m not giving any medical advice or saying it’s going to cure or treat anything, all I’m saying is go to, check out our iodine, try it for yourself. It’s backed by a one-year money back guarantee. If you don’t feel a difference, if you’re not feeling healthier, send it back to us and get your money back.
Alright, I’m done pitching. So, listen, if you love the video, if you love Doc Nuzum, like we do, and you love learning from him, subscribe, share it, like it, tell us what you think in the comments, how can we make things better. Thanks for watching.

  1. Can I use organixx iodine drops after having my mercury fillings removed to expel the heavy metals from my brain and organs,as well as a replacement of thoryoid meds? and is 3 drops each day the amount ?

  2. Thank you for these very interesting and informative videos.
    I have been following you and the other guys in the Bible Secrets series and the Autoimmune series and I have found it so fascinating. I do, however, live in the UK and although I want to order and try out all your amazing looking supplements, I don’t want to risk having to pay the extra amount of tax that I had to pay once when I ordered some of your essential oils ( on top of the shipping costs). Is there any way you could find a trust worthy supplier in the UK, making therefore your products available in the UK and in Europe. That would be great as at the moment, I just find the whole cost of buying these amazing looking products is too have and I know that a lot of people would simply not be able to afford them.
    Thanks again for all that you do and please please, make your products more easily available in the UK. God bless you, Mrs M Conner

  3. I used the Organixx iodine for about a week. I had to stop because I began experiencing hyperthyroid symptoms. I have been feeling miserable for weeks now and would really love for someone to talk about this and what might be done about it.

    • Hello, Irene! Organixx Iodine can help deliver a boost of energy. For that reason, we suggest taking it earlier in the day, either in the morning or early afternoon (or whenever best fits your active-hours schedule). For best results, take Organixx Iodine at least 30 to 60 minutes apart from any meals.
