Dear people. My child had be advised to take iodine and zinc rethyroid issues for a while and some homeopathic stuff. I think due to health blood results he cannot be treated as yet with hormones but the doctor he saw agreed that he had thyroid issues and pointed out the loss of eyebrows. I have just used some lingual drops on my wrists and put some on my child too. Could I have some advise though please on best ways to take etc. Iamaware of the concerns about iodine and thyroid and would be interested to hear about this. I am not sure they are well founded. It was common practice thirty years ago to paint people with iodine prior to surgery. eally large areas and medicine back then and prior was much more observant.
