How Long Does It Take for Iodine Supplementation to Work?

Tuesday, 25 May 2010 09:08 AM EDT

Question: On the advice of my chiropractor, I started taking Iodoral 10 days ago. What is the average time frame is for people to notice positive effects of iodine supplementation?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

Unfortunately, I can’t give you an exact time frame for when you will feel better. However, most patients notice the positive effects with iodine within a few weeks of taking it.

Iodine is best taken as part of a holistic treatment regimen which emphasizes a healthy diet. Furthermore, iodine works best when given with the appropriate synergistic nutrients, such as selenium, vitamin C, magnesium, and B vitamins.

The best results are achieved by working with a holistic healthcare practitioner knowledgeable about iodine.
