Wonders of Nascent Iodine

Wonders of Nascent Iodine

By Kris Zurek / Holistic Health Centre Published on 28/May/2012

Are you often tired, do you have chronic fatigue, have you been diagnosed with underactive thyroid and perhaps struggle with your weight, do you often get infections, have Fibrocystic disease of the breast (FDB) or Goiter, have you suffered unknowingly with fluoride overload, or are you concerned about toxic effects of radioactive pollution from faulty nuclear plants or the so called standard Radiation Therapy for cancer?

If any of the above relates to you, then perhaps you should consider looking closer at the benefits of Iodine. It is generally well established by the scientific community that Iodine helps manage:

  • Metabolism,
  • Supports thyroid function,
  • Reinforces immune system function
  • Protects against certain cancers (watch the video on the bottom of this page), especially breast and overian cancers
  • Acts as a protective agent against cancer radiation therapy, X-Rays, CT scans (minimizes side effects)
  • Acts as a protective agent against nuclear radiation

Are You Iodine Deficient?!

Since iodine facilitates thyroid function, the intake of sufficient amounts of the right type of iodine helps generate energy for metabolic processes. Unfortunately, people who seek to improve thyroid function often first rush to get a Thyroxine medication, or other prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid’s job, instead of nutritionally building the thyroid. Such medications may not have the most compatible components and levels necessary to support the thyroid fully for good homeostasis in the body and without side effects.

Those who go for seaweed (natural source of iodine) as an alternative, may not get enough of it to do a good job and may also unknowingly expose themselves to certain levels of arsenic and even mercury from polluted oceans (depending on the source).

Normally iodine is found as 2 molecules of iodine paired (stuck) together and this is called “I2”. This form of iodine is difficult for the body to process and use correctly. As a result doctors in that past have used potassium iodide in combination with I2 to supplement iodine with some success. In fact iodized salt is table salt in which potassium iodide is added in small amounts. The problem with potassium iodide is that it can cause an inflammation in the thyroid known as thyroiditis.

Many doctors are reluctant to supplement with iodine due to this risk. It is however clear to all doctors that there is an epidemic of iodine deficiency throughout the world and in fact iodine deficiency is the leading cause of slow mental retardation in the world. So if we clearly need Iodine, then how can we get it without exposing ourselves to unnecessary toxicity or in sufficient quantity to have good results, and in a way that it can be easily utilised by the thyroid, without making us dependent on synthetic medication like Thyroxine or other low quality options. Well, the research, which led to a development of a new type of Iodine might be an answer.

Have you ever heard about Nascent Iodine? If not, then perhaps now is the time.

Nascent Iodine is totally different from the typical iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine tri-chloride, or as added to potassium iodine to make it safer (such as in the Pill form).   Nascent Iodine is a scientific term for iodine where the iodine molecule has the diatomic bond broken and has a high amount of electromagnetic energy. The word “nascent” means newborn. Nascent Iodine also known as Atomic Iodine, is a special form of iodine that is made by taking molecular iodine, I2 and exposing it to a strong electro-magnetic field. This separates the iodine into individual atoms that enter into the body and are used very easily.

Dr. Roth of Fridley, MN stated that, this form of iodine does not cause congestion in the thyroid gland like other forms of iodine and because it is very bio-available, you will only need to take it in small amounts. The body can easily eliminate this form of iodine through the kidneys if you take more than your body needs and it is not toxic.

It takes about 4-6 months for your body to be fully nourished with this iodine, and the iodine should be continued after this at the same dose. Nascent iodine is consumable iodine in an atomic form rather than a molecular form. It is a highly bio-available, pure atomic iodine supplement in an energized atomic state similar to thyroid-produced iodine. This “charged” state is kept by the atom until it is diluted in water and consumed, after which it gradually loses energy over a 2-3 hour time span. During this time, nascent iodine is recognized by the body as the same iodine that is synthesized by the thyroid and is absorbed easily. During this time the body recognizes this Iodine atom as the same nascent iodine it produces in the thyroid in order to make the T3 and T4 hormones. Thus “the atomic iodine is perhaps the least toxic and least irritating of all the iodine formulas available.”

The quality that separates nascent iodine from all other iodine products is that the diatomic bond is broken with each atom keeping one of the two electrons that had made up the covalent bond. This is known as homolytic cleavage and causes the iodine atom to be subject to magnetic charging. Interestingly enough, it was the famous psychic Edgar Cayce, (performed over 14,000 correct readings in the beginning of 20thcentury) who suggested iodine for all sorts of thyroid problems, who advised that it would be necessary to electrically charge the iodine to change it into its “atomic” form ! This charging converts the iodine into a form that the body can most fully recognize and assimilate (Iodine Trichlorite claims to be Atomic Iodine, but it’s not.) A true atomic iodine is the best kind to bring the thyroid to its optimal function because it supports and saturates the thyroid without any toxic buildup. On top of the benefits for thyroid, Iodine is well recognised for its topical germicidal action against a wide spectrum of organisms including bad bacteria, virus, fungi, yeast and protozoa.

Dr. Brownstein writes: “Iodine has many positive therapeutic actions. It is a potent anti-infection agent. No virus, bacteria or parasite has been shown to be resistant to iodine therapy.” This is an incredible statement but one that can easily be backed by hardcore medical science. It is the reason hospitals use iodine by the gallon and in reality the only reason hospitals are not like ground zero sites contaminated in an infectious sense is because of iodine’s broad spectrum anti-infective power. This very much matches my personal experience because I remember from my childhood, that my father used to apply Iodine on his mouth when he had cold sores or other gum problems, and on wounds.

Few are the doctors who have realized that Nascent Iodine can be taken internally in moderate quantities and that it will have the same effect internally as it does on external surfaces, but it has to be in an Atomic state as Nascent Iodine. 

“Iodine has bactericidal activity, e.g. a 1% tincture will kill 90% of bacteria in 90 seconds, a 5% tincture in 60 seconds and a 7% tincture in 15 seconds.” Gershenfeld, 1968 

On the end I want to also mention about an additional use of Nascent Iodine, which was of big interest to me personally – that  Iodine intake immediately increases the excretion of toxic bromide, fluoride, and some super toxic heavy metals including mercury and lead. Bromide and fluoride are not removed by any chelator or detoxifying technique other then Nascent Iodine!

Dr. Kenezy Gyula Korhaz states that iodine chelates heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum and halogens… (which of course include chlorine and fluorine or fluoride) This information is especially significant because for the last 50 years Ireland has suffered with huge over-exposure to Fluoride and Mercury. This came about as a result of the mandatory practice of adding ‘dental medication’ in the form of industrial waste by-products Sodium Fluoride and Hydrofluorosilicic Acid to public water supplies without consent of the people. And also, dentistry has allowed and approved the use of super poisonous mercury in amalgam fillings as part of standard procedure, while medical establishment internationally banned mercury-filled thermometers from the market.

About Detox

Because Nascent Iodine helps to kill pathogenic (“bad”) microorganisms in your system and remove heavy metals, it is advisable to start with a small dose of the iodine and to gradually increase in order to avoid a “detox” reaction. Detox reactions occur when these bad germs die suddenly and are released into the blood stream causing such symptoms as headache, fatigue and nausea. If you get a detox reaction it is harmless and all you will need to do is to stop the iodine for one day and to increase your water intake for a day or two, then resume the iodine at a smaller dose for a few days before increasing it again.


Use 2% nascent iodine. Please keep the bottle of iodine out of direct sunlight at all times. The suggested serving size for atomic iodine is 1 drop one or more times per day depending upon individual needs (or as directed by physician). The adult dose is 1-2 drops in the morning and 1-2 drops in the evening however it is best to start with one drop a day and to gradually increase by one drop every 3-7 days to avoid a accelerated detox reaction. One drop of Atomic Iodine provides approx. 400 micrograms (mcg) of iodine. The National Institute of Health (NIH) upper tolerable limit for iodine for adults is 1,100 mcg. For adults there are 2 effective ways to take this iodine: – If your stomach is empty, put the drops in ½ glass of water and drink it. You will know if you have an empty stomach by the way you feel, if you feel hungry and it is at least 2 hours after meals, medications, and/or supplements. After taking the iodine, please wait 30 minutes before eating. – If your stomach has food or drink in it you can put a small amount of water in a glass, add the drops and hold this water in your mouth for 3-5 minutes, then swallow. Most of the iodine will be absorbed though your mouth. For infants or toddlers simply put 1 drop on the skin twice a day and it will be absorbed through the skin.

For water purification (in emergency circumstances where bacterial contamination is an issue) : Add 15 drops per litre (or quart) of water. If the water is clear or when its temperature is above 40 degrees (Fahrenheit), let stand for 30 minutes. Let the water stand for 60 minutes if the water is cloudy or the water temperature is below 40 degrees. Take nascent iodine along while travelling, camping, or wherever there is a need to improve water purity. Last Note: Nascent Iodine is normally available as alcohol tinctures to preserve its quality.
