Iodine is a Viral, Bacterial, and Fungal Killer

In the beginning of 2017, nearly three dozen people in the United States have been diagnosed with a deadly and highly drug-resistant fungal infection that has been rapidly spreading around the world. The fungus is a strain of a kind of yeast known as Candida auris. Unlike garden-variety yeast infections, this one causes serious bloodstream infections, spreads easily from person to person in health-care settings, and survives for months on skin and for weeks on bed rails, chairs, and other hospital equipment.

Some strains are resistant to all three major classes of antifungal drugs. Up to 60 percent of people with these infections have died. The fact that Candida auris has an uncanny and dangerous ability to exploit cells around it is one of the main reasons we should return to iodine as our favored broad-spectrum antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-fungal agent.

Iodine provides us with a safe way to strengthen innate responses to invading microbes while simultaneously correcting or eliminating a basic nutritional deficiency that causes immunological unresponsiveness.

Iodine also chelates out mercury of the thyroid as well as the full list of halogens that are poisoning most everyone.

The presence of Bromides, Chlorides, and
Flourides (halogens) and Thiocyanates in our bodies/cells/tissues form toxic goitrogens which cause inflammation and diseases in our bodies. They can be effectively excreted by supplementing with potassium iodide – Dr Guy Abraham MD, PhD

Dr. David Derry wrote, “Iodine was the most effective agent for killing viruses, especially influenza viruses.

Aerosol iodine was found to kill viruses in sprayed mists, and solutions of iodine were equally effective.

In 1945, Burnet and Stone found that putting iodine on mice snouts prevented the mice from being infected with live influenza virus in mists.

They suggested that impregnating masks with iodine would help stop viral spread. They also recommended that medical personnel have iodine-aerosol-treated rooms for examination and treatment of highly infected patients.

Current methods of dealing with influenza infection are isolation, hand washing, antiviral drugs, and vaccinations.

All of these methods can be improved by incorporating iodine into them.

When impregnated with iodine, masks become much more effective, and hand washing is more effect when done with mild iodine solutions.”

Viral infections always have doctors scrambling because they have forgotten how effective iodine is against them.

Dr. Richard Kunin, after 50 years of practice concluded that iodide destroys the virus of herpes. Both oral and genital lesions are treatable this way. Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital tells us, “HIV was completely inactivated and could no longer replicate after exposure to the povidone-iodine preparations even at very low concentrations.”

Dr. Eliot Dick observed a 50 percent reduction in respiratory illnesses when using iodine.

Many reports by patients find that a gargle of ten drops of potassium iodide in a glass of water, with or without additional vitamin C, relieved sore throat in a matter of hours.

The Science Daily reports, “With infectious diseases, it is often not the pathogen itself, but rather an excessive inflammatory immune response (sepsis) that contributes to the patient’s death, for instance as a result of organ damage. On intensive care units, sepsis is the second-most common cause of death worldwide.

In patients with a severely compromised immune system specially, life-threatening Candida fungal infections represent a high risk of sepsis.” Science Daily informs us that, “Infectious diseases are the world’s number-one cause of death, with pathogenic fungi being responsible for extremely dangerous infections.

Worldwide, more than 6 billion are spent each year on anti-fungal medications, and the total costs of the medical treatment of infectious diseases caused by pathogenic fungi are estimated in the order of hundreds of billions of Euros.”

This is all highly unnecessary because sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) happens to be the best anti-fungal there is. Iodine, its cofactor selenium, and sodium bicarbonate are a killer combination against viruses, bacteria, and fungal infections.


Pharmaceutical medicine is becoming impotent in the age of antibiotic resistant infections. It always has had difficulty treating fungal infections and vaccines are not halting the rise in viral infections that often, if you believe the CDC, lead to death.

Iodine is the super hero medicinal able to take on infections of all types. All one has to do is reach for a bottle of iodine and mix it with water. First sign of sore throat or fever run for the iodine and gargle with iodine.

Dr. David Brownstein says that iodine is number one in his protocol. When one considers how important iodine is in preventing cancer, we would, if we were thinking straight, take daily iodine supplementation seriously.

When a parent considers that iodine ensures, from the first sign of any problem with their kids, security because iodine is standing inches away, ready to take out infectious marauders on contact, they would consider iodine medicine more earnestly.

When we see that infections themselves frequently lead to cancer, then we do have to stop and consider why we are not taking iodine. Are you ready for a world without antibiotics?

I am because my house always has a big stock of iodine. With iodine, there is a lot a doctor or mother can do to help people resist infections and cancer.

Iodine/ iodide is the super medicine we need in the 21st century if we do not want to be slaughtered as public health officials and medical scientists are promising.

Iodine is just waiting, is already on the shelves and easily obtained on the Internet and comes in many forms for many uses.

Iodine is available in every pharmacy in the world. However, the common inexpensive form found there cannot be taken orally though it can be used for skin infections and skin cancer as well as systemic supplementation by getting in moderate dosages through the skin.

Medications May Cause Adverse Effects

Many physicians are unaware of lasting adverse effects caused by routinely prescribed medications, such as antibiotics. Antibiotic therapy for minor colds and runny noses is a common practice.

People routinely receive multiple courses of broad-spectrum antibiotics throughout life or are injected with long-acting corticosteroid medicine for joint or muscle pain. Once established, sub-clinical colonization with yeast in the body may persist unrecognized for many years.

Antibiotics, such as tetracycline, can greatly increase yeast in the colon after only a few days. The extensive use of antibiotics will make the condition of Candida much worse because it reduces heavy metal excretion.

In 2005 a study the antibiotic Augmentin TM has been implicated in the formation of autism.

The study strongly suggests the possibility of ammonia poisoning as a result of young children taking Augmentin. Augmentin has been given to children since the late 1980’ s for bacterial infections.

Antibiotics may be to blame for hundreds of children developing autism after having the controversial MMR jab. More than two-thirds of youngsters with the condition received four or more antibiotics in their first year, a British survey has revealed.

It is thought the drugs weakened their immune systems, leaving them unable to withstand the impact of the triple jab.

Many physicians seem to be unaware that birth control pills comprised of the hormones estrogen and progesterone can also make the body more susceptible to fungal infections.

If antibiotics are prescribed it acts as a double whammy to ensuring a fungal infection will take hold by diminishing the protective bacteria in the intestines.

Many pregnant women seek medical treatment for minor problems and are indiscriminately given antibiotics.

This begins a long decline into problems that are complicated at each turn by OBGYN doctors at birth and by pediatricians who just love to poison children with the toxic chemicals found in vaccines.

In many places in the world they still give mercury containing Hep B shots at birth. Antibiotics are mostly derived from fungi and are therefore classified as mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are poisons.”
