Iodine and Radiation

Posted Mar 17 2011 12:00am

We are receiving a flurry of questions from patients who are concerned about potential radiation exposure from the devastation in Japan.  Please know that the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has said that harmful levels of radiation are not expected in the United States. At this time it would be wise to test for levels of iodine (we use a urine test at our medical practice ) and if warranted and safe for you, based on your test results, increase your intake of iodine-rich foods (kelp noodles, sea vegetables, wild caught salt water fish), and supplement with Thyrodine Complex at 1 capsule per day, or every other day, depending on your starting iodine levels.

In health and healing,

- Dr. G
