yep, for the things they have been treating, FBD and ovarian cysts in particular, elemental is essential. i think that it is also essential for the thyroid initially.
when you think about it, it has to do with the potassium. potassium deposits in the cysts and in the thyroid(which normally also have cysts whether they are found or not), that is the deal. extra elemental is needed to correct the years of deficiency. once sufficiency is established then only occasional elemental is needed. i still take a shot of magnascent or Lugols from time to time. i suppose that as the Iodine project continues to fine tune their program we may see more interpretations of blood tests for various conditions. the beauty is that Iodine is so safe that one can learn to read their own needs with a little practice and it accomplishes the same thing.
