Dr. David Brownstein found that 95% of people he tested for iodine are deficient in this nutrient. It is highly likely that the same statistic would apply to pets.
What Causes Iodine Deficiency?
Since animal (and people) cannot produce iodine in the body, it must be introduced externally. The major cause of iodine deficiency is the low quality pet food, which does not contain any iodine.
Iodine Found to Reverse Diabetes
Iodine corrects the cause of diabetes, a disease that has become very prevalent in modern society. This remarkable observation was discovered by Dr. Jorge Flechas of North Carolina, USA, who accidently found out that administered iodine to a diabetic woman caused her diabetes to be reversed, requiring her to take less insulin. The details can be found on my other blog entitled Reverse Diabetes with Lugol’s Iodine.
Ways to Take Iodine
Iodine can be taken either transdermally or orally for pets, the same as for people. The easiest way to administer iodine to your pet is to put iodine drops in the pet’s water dish.
