There has been increasing interest in the holistic, nutritional use of iodine in medical practice over the last several years as it has been shown that most people in the United States are deficient in iodine. The Midwest region has always had a low iodine level in the soil, but now more so due to depletion of the soil from over farming. The body does not produce iodine so people do need to supplement on a steady basis – the degree to which they need to supplement varies from person to person.
The use of iodine for better health
In recent years it has become clearer that Melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone, has many other tremendously beneficial effects. In humans, it is produced in the pineal gland. When the sun goes down and darkness naturally occurs, the hypothalamus sends a regulating signal to the pineal gland, to make Melatonin -- if it is able to do so. Too much exposure to light at nighttime or staying up late -- this all decreases the natural production of Melatonin and makes it difficult for the pineal gland to produce enough of it for whole body support. Also, the pineal gland itself can become calcified or damaged by modern living so it is not as able to produce Melatonin. Walter Pierpaoli. M.D. spent years researching this subject using animal studies and thorough this work he recognized that melatonin is a master hormone that has across the board beneficial effects on basic human functioning. Melatonin has been found to extend lifespan in animals and also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer effects in humans.

Vitamin and mineral, nutritional therapies have been used now for decades, and have gradually increased in popularity over the past 30 years. The famous, Nobel Prize winning Linus Pauling, PhD, pioneered research about Vitamin C and its benefits in the treatment of a wide range of ailments and illnesses. While Dr. Pauling’s research involved the use of oral Vitamin C, John Myers, M.D. developed and put into practice the use of IV Vitamin C for even more powerful results.
