Iodoral for fibrocystic breasts, uterin fibroids and ovarian cysts

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 11, 2012 at 8:39 PM

Ive started supplementing with Iodoral (vit c, magnesium, selenium) to see if it will reverse my fibroids/cysts. Dr. Flechas says that low iodine is responsible for these. As well as all my other low thyroid symptoms dispute having normal thyroid function blood tests. Has anyone else had and positive results with iodine supplementation? Thanks!

36D here. I like xersion sports bras (it's a jcpenney house brand, made of nylon and spandex). They're a bit better than a cami but not as intense as my Champion brand sport bra. I wear these most of the time because I had a lumpectomy on the right side a couple years ago and have costochondroitis esp where I was irradiated. These don't dig into the tender areas but kind of do a gentle all over light support.

Iodine supplementation is something I'd do under a naturopath's care. It can improve some thyroid situations and make others worse. I don't pretend to understand the complexity of it, but I have hypothydroidism and iodine can be powerful. Also, when you say your thyroid tests are normal, what tests are being run? Just TSH? If so, it doesn't give you a true picture of thyroid functioning. Consider asking for reverse T3, free T3 and T4, and TPO antibodies. Also keep in mind that the standard range most used for TSH is out of whack--even the national endocrinologist's group recommends TSH to be below a 3.0, I believe. Most "normal" ranges used by labs are under 5.0. Stopthethyroidmadness.com has an almost overwhelming amount of information if, based on symptoms, you feel you have thyroid issues.

You may want to consider going bra-free to help with the fibrocystic breast disease. I used to get painfully tender breasts, to where I couldn't even lay on my side at night, until I stopped wearing one. The closest I'll come to a bra is a shelf-tank top.

Anyone have tank tops or camis they have found that works well for larger breasts? I have 36 DD and would feel very uncomfortable going braless while at work unless decently supported. I know that my bras and breasts have given me a lot of neck/back pain. I'd like to try it.

I do, and it has cut way down on breast tenderness during my period. I try to supplement with more seaweed before my period, and that seems to help, too. But the topical application of iodine during my period really takes away the tenderness.
