Breast Cysts and Iodine

My daughter-in-law passed this on to me and I thought it worth posting.

Before Christmas 2012, I noticed my breasts starting to hurt a lot and I noticed a big lump in my left breast. I was determined to finish getting my bachelor’s degree before getting it checked out. So I ignored my boobs for a bit, got my degree and went to my primary doctor at the end of January. I WAS SCARED. She told me I needed to get a mammogram and ultrasound. I’ve heard a lot of bad stuff about mammograms but at that point I wanted to know what was going on. Was it cancer??? As a mom I was terrified.

Luckily, after all of my testing (which was painful), it wasn’t cancer. I did have fibrocystic breasts (cysts filled breasts). How can that be??? I’m only 42. I asked the medical doctors what could be done and they said there’s no cure, just maybe cut down on coffee and chocolate. What?? No cure?

I went and saw my nutritional doctor and he tested me for deficiencies. He put me onto taking some supplements. I didn’t really pay attention to what they were.

I learned our breasts are like sponges for a lot of toxins and estrogen, which can cause the cysts, cancer and other nasty stuff. Iodine can flush the toxins out and help handle this problem.

After the lecture, I looked at the supplements my nutritionist had given me and–low and behold–-kelp and iodine!! Hmmm… interesting. So I started reading more and more about iodine and there’s a direct correlation to thyroid health as well. I’ve struggled with hypothyroidism for about 10 years as well. I guess it’s safe to say I’ve been a bit iodine deficient.

Anyway, I also started taking another natural liquid form of iodine as well. It’s been about 2 months and my breasts are no longer sore and all the lumps and bumps are gone. I got some essential oils for breast massage as well from the lady who gave the lecture above. This is also for lymphatic massage.

I was amazed how much this stuff helped and I truly think every woman needs to know this and needs to add iodine to their diet. It’s also vital for kids’ health and for prostate health. Unless you’re eating a lot of seaweed and salt water fish, you’re probably not getting enough iodine. There is NO DOUBT in my mind that everyone can benefit from getting more iodine in their diet RIGHT NOW!! Please pass this one to any and everyone!

Thank you for sharing your story, I’ve been putting off taking iodine (procrastination). But a few months ago I did a gentle whole body cleanse (not the lemanaide one), and had some bodily reactions that I’ve never experienced with a cleanse before. One was that my right breast had a sharp pain only when I would bend forward. I feel no lump or anything else. Online I discovered it could be from certain exercises that may have pulled the pectoralis muscles, which I contributed to the pain since I am always trying new yoga postures. In my search though, I did come across the wonders of Iodine and the thyroid and breast health, so I thought about purchasing some. Then it was the question as to what kind is best. I like the idea of liquid. Thanks again for sharing your story!

“I learned our breasts are like sponges for a lot of toxins and estrogen, which can cause the cysts, cancer and other nasty stuff”.

I think The Pill is the underlining cause of most cancers in women.

All tablets leave residue behind them and over years cause all kinds of problems.

You have just confirmed what I read from an article from Dr. Mercol regarding iodine breast cancer and mammograms. I then searched to find what foods were high in them. Thanks for the information. I will definitely be keeping iodine in my diet.

Thank you for your story. I’ve had a pain parallel to the sternum in the left breast. No lumps. No exercises. But I have been doing major cleansing with mud baths. Will try iodine supplements. I only feel it when I consciously pull my shoulders back to correct my posture.
Thanks again for sharing. When we share, it helps so many people.

I tried the iodine treatment and gotta severe backache. I did not realize that a salt flush is an absolute requirement to remove toxins that the iodine tries to flush. This should have been mentioned.

I have the fibrocystic breast disease also and my mom and 3 sisters do also.. while thank God no cancer it is very painful and my grandma and mom and 3 sisters have all had thyroid problems and my mom and sister are in terrible pain and sickness from fibromyalgia and while I am having symptoms of all that drs have said my thyroid levels are fine.. but I know how I feel and I know my body and something is not right .. we do a lot of natural stuff herbal supplements and eating organic…

Many women report breast cysts shrinking and even disappearing on the Master Cleanse. If you search medical data, you’ll find fasting as a natural cure for that problem.
