Book Recommendations

Sometimes people ask, Where do I start? Here are some books & links (links are underlined in light blue) I recommend. I will update this page, when I think of more:

Iodine Supplementation:
It has been proven that iodine deficiency can lead to fibrocystic breast disease and/or ovarian cysts. Iodine can similarly reduce uterine fibroids and one of the first conventional medical treatments for severe fibroids was to paint the uterus with iodine. So all reproductive disorders in addition to thyroid cancer or nodules on the thyroid are affected by iodine deficiency. They can be prostate cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and testicular cancer. Some other medical conditions associated with iodine deficiency are goiters, hyperthyroid, hypothyroid, Graves’ Disease, Hashimoto’s Disease, fatigue and impaired immune system function. Iodine deficiency during pregnancy can lead to miscarriages and reduced IQ in surviving offspring. The World Health Organization says that iodine deficiency is the largest single cause of mental retardation. Iodine also detoxifies the body by removing mercury, fluorides, chlorides, and bromides. From http://joannebrophy.com/programs/iodinetherapy.htm – a great link. I recommend the book The Iodine Crisis: What You Don’t Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life, by Lynne Farrow and David Brownstein MD.
