Iodine-Iodide Link to Autism?
I hope your January was smooth and blues free! I know for some it can be the hardest month after the holiday season. I have gotten a bit slow on the blog front as I have been busy with clinic and teaching but it has been all good. I love the way the naturopathic medical profession are always kept on their toes due to new discoveries all the time and constant backlash in the media.
If you have been following my twitter feeds or FB page you may have noticed a few times I have posted about iodine. Iodine is a vital mineral and also known as a halogen. It’s history is quite something from being used in war on wounds through to breast cancer. I am not going to go into detail about iodine itself but there is a fabulous book called ‘The Iodine Crisis” by Lynne Farrow if you want to know more. However, I do want to share two cases of mother and child taking iodine (I am also not referring to kelp or sea weed here but plain Lugol’s Iodine solution). Iodine is a mineral that is required by every cell in the body and may I add iodised salt is not the way to go either.
Last year in January 2014, I saw a an 8 year old boy who was referred by a colleague of mine in Australia. His basic symptoms were….
– tics, where he would twitch his eyes and face every now and then
– aggression towards his younger sibling and other children at school
– inability to ‘concentrate’ for too long in class and was labeled as a ‘dreamer’
– re-occurring chest and ear infections
The mother herself was very well read and versed in nearly every diet under the sun, some I had not even come across (keeping me on my toes). He was already following a GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet for nearly 2 years prior to seeing me.
