White Iodine - Plz Share Opinions/Experiences

Post  teacup on Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:19 am

This is the first I heard of this, but an alternative Dr friend of mine just sent me this article:

Quote:
A friend of mine has been suffering with hair loss for years.

He's not very experienced on the computer so I did some research for him. I discovered a little known remedy for hair loss.

He is now applying white iodine or decolorized iodine directly to his scalp twice a day and he's starting to see a difference. Per my suggestion, he is also taking Carlson Fish oil and manganese.

According to the research I've done, there are theories why people lose their hair. Doctors have not really established a definitive diagnosis.

One theory is the scalp has a fungus. It has been reported that the white iodine stops any itching from the fungus and serves as an antiseptic and an antifungal agent.

Another possibility is that individuals may have an undiagnosed iodine deficiency which can be helped with the addition of white iodine. Hair loss is one of the many symptoms of low iodine.

The iodine is absorbed through the scalp and helps the body by providing numerous benefits.

Success Stories
The following results were discovered at ABC Homeopathy on their forum:

One woman wrote about her 17 year old daughter who suffered with alopecia areata since she was three years old.

She had total hair loss on her head. Her daughter was in third grade before she had most of her hair back as a direct result from the hint given to her by a retired beautician.

The beautician's family members suffered with alopecia. They used white iodine or decolorized iodine dabbed on the hair loss areas to start the hair growing again.



Another Success Story
One woman wrote about her treatment using white iodine. She noticed a light fuzz of hair coming in after a week. Ninety-five percent of her hair returned.

Another woman wrote that she had suffered with hair loss for the last 7 years. She tried everything from Rogaine to hormone pills, and assorted products. She followed the ABC Homeopathy protocol by Joe De Silva, and supplemented it with topical application of decolorized iodine. Her hair began to grow in the bald spots.



Earth Clinic
At Earth Clinic, there is a "Folk Remedies and Holistic Cures" area. This information was posted about white iodine:

Barb from Auckland, New Zealand, wrote that her alopecia areata or bald spots suddenly appeared overnight.

She started applying decolorized iodine to the bald spots. Within 6 weeks to 8 weeks the spots were beginning to be covered with new hair.

She also found that the profound fatigue which came over her when her hair began falling out, seemed to lessen.

Betsy from Atizapan de Zaragoza, Mexico wrote that people in Mexico have used iodine as a means of preventing baldness.

One woman used iodine for years as a preventive measure against baldness by using it as a rinse after washing her hair.



Earth Clinic Expert
Ted, well known and respected authority for Earth Clinic states, there is an array of products used for hair loss.

Quite a few remedies have been tried: iodine, selenium selenite, copper chloride, colloidal copper, tea tree oil, lavender oil, coal tar solution, eucalyptus oil, borax, boric acid, clove oil, camphor, manganese sulfate, silicic acid, and fulvic acid - just to name a few.

The reason he lists this array of "cures" is because they all have one thing in common - they have high antifungal properties and they are high in manganese.

It is his theory that fungus and mycoplasma cause hair loss by attacking hair follicles. The iodine stops the fungus from devouring the hair follicle.

He recommends doing iodine painting for 3 days and then taking 3 to 4 days off to allow the body's natural circadian rhythms to restore itself. You are the best judge of whether or not this is necessary.

Typically, he states you will see results within 2-6 weeks. It is not necessary to dilute the iodine. If it irritates your skin, then you should dilute the product with water or discontinue.

Wash hands after application. If applied on children, make certain they do not scratch their head after application. If scratching occurred, their hands should be washed also. You may also use tincture of iodine.

Teacup,
I wanted to try this, because I have seen several stories of white iodine helping hairloss. Today I went to the pharmacy and bought a bottle of white iodine. On the label it says "poison." It also says that it should not be applied over a large area, which makes me just a little nervous to put it on my entire scalp. One of the reasons I am trying this is that I have been taking Eidon ionic minerals iodine orally for about a week, and I have noticed increased energy and possible reduced hairfall. I think I will put some over the more sparse areas on my scalp as an experiment and see how it goes. Thanks for posting this.

It's a good anti-inflammatory. Just mix some drops of lugol's in water with a pinch of ascorbic acid.

Interesting. But FWIW, this hasn't been my experience at all. I used to always take it during the day b/c I was afraid it might be too stimulating for night use, but gave it a try once at night (I'd forgotten my dose in the morning) and found I think I actually sleep better. Different strokes, I guess.

a dude at world hair loss said he uses lugols as a chemical peel to revitalize the scalp. would the white iodine work the same way?

tnx

If there is infection, iodine will take care of it. And yes it's the dose what makes it poison.

For alopecia areata it's known fungus and pathognes including H. Pylori are connected with the issue.

Along with taking internals: EC, vitD,vitA, vitK2, would recommend to everybody to try antifungals/antibacterials on the scalp at least to eliminate ''this should work''... Alopecia areata in my case is very mild one and it's mostly ruining appearance of the hairline than leaving big bald spots. Although i have 3 bald spots with 50mm^2 area each appearing on my scalp since i was 14. Some others of them dissapeared, 3 mentioned probably never will.
