Movie Star Needs to Stick to Acting
Gwyneth Paltrow has given plenty of health advice from ‘clean sleeping’ to leaving an egg in your vagina. Ghosts make health recommendations. Medical professionals claim his advice is not only incorrect, but deadly. Dr Jen Gunter, an OB/GYN and pain medicine physician, on her website, spoke with board-certified endocrinologist, Dr Elena Christofides, to stress the point that iodine advice is not an accepted scientific method. The medical-medium claims that the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a herpes virus, causes 95 percent of all thyroid conditions, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and thyroid nodules, tumors, and cysts. Claims iodine is an antiviral agent, it reduces any sort of viral load in the thyroid and the rest of the body, as well as protecting the thyroid from radiation. Anthony William, a self-proclaimed ‘medical medium’, speaks to ghosts in order to make health recommendations. He claims the immune system relies on iodine to function and that it is a natural antiseptic ‘To blame 95 percent of thyroid conditions on EBV and the rest on radiation is to have no understanding of modern medicine beyond evil humors. He claims it’s because the immune system relies on this iodine to function and that iodine is a natural antiseptic.
WHAT IS IODINE?
Iodine is a chemical element. The body needs iodine but cannot make it. The needed iodine must come from the diet or through supplements.
The thyroid gland needs iodine to make hormones. If the gland doesn’t have enough iodine to do its job, feedback systems in the body cause the thyroid to work harder.
Iodine can be used for:
- Iodine deficiency
- Radiation exposure – Taking iodine by mouth is effective for protecting against exposure to radioactive iodides in a radiation emergency
- Thyroid conditions – Taking iodine by mouth can improve thyroid storm and hyperthyroidism
- Leg ulcers – Research suggests that applying cadexomer iodine to venous leg ulcers, along with compression for four to six weeks, increases the healing rate
While iodine is important, we need very little of it because it’s a micronutrient. Too much iodine could actually kill you.
Excessive iodine with a normal thyroid actually blunts the thyroid and actually causes hypothyroidism.
Almost everything about iodine coming from ghosts and sham mediums is wrong and potentially dangerous.We need very little iodine, that little bit is important but if you eat a healthy diet and have a little iodized salt here and there you will be just fine.
Iodine and thyroid supplements are dangerous for anyone taking thyroid hormone or have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. They can cause hypothyroid,hyperthyroid nodules and even cancers.
