How to make sure your Thyroid is getting enough Iodine with this simple 24 hour Home test?
The thyroid secretes hormones that act throughout the body influencing metabolism, growth and development and body temperatures. Its proper function is dependent on two trace minerals: iodine and manganese. Of the two, Iodine is most essential for proper thyroid function and health.
This simple test can show if your body has sufficient iodine to normalize thyroid secretions.
With iodine tincture, simply paint a postage size stamp on the inside of your wrist. (Be sure it’s the orange colored solution). If the brown stain fades in 24 hours or less, it indicates there is NOT sufficient iodine.
If patch disappears in 18-24 hours-MILD; 12-18 hours MODERATE; after 24 hours-NORMAL. This can be repeated every 1-2 weeks. Even if you are taking thyroid medication, lack of iodine will prevent your body from properly utilizing it.
