Every cell in the body needs and requires iodine to survive. Yet, of all the elements known so far to be essential to life itself and human health, iodine is the most misunderstood. Dr. David Brownstein, a board-certified physician and a foremost practitioner of holistic medicine, is here to set the record straight about iodine’s amazing healing properties. In this first episode of a four-part mini-series, he explains how iodine is needed and used throughout the body, gives a history of iodine’s medical use over the years, explores the myths and misinformation about its use, and discusses the forms and dosages that are most effective.
David Brownstein, M.D., is a conventionally trained board-certified family physician with the additional overlay of holistic principles. While Dr. Brownstein does not claim to have a cure for any illness, he does believe that we can enhance the individual’s immune system by supporting the “host” and the terrain of the host. The human body is well designed and the immune system, when given the proper support, can optimally function.
