  1. Lugol’s iodine

    Lugol’s iodine, also known as Lugol’s solution, first made in 1829, is a solution of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water, named after the French physician J.G.A. Lugol. Lugol’s iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water, and as a reagent for starch detection in routine laboratory and medical tests.

    It has been used more rarely to replenish iodine deficiency. [1] However, pure potassium iodide, without the more toxic elemental iodine, is preferred for this purpose.

    Historical applications

    Lugol’s was often used in the treatment of gout.

    It was also used at one time as a first line treatment for severe hypothyroidism due to iodine deficiency in adults.

    Historically, Lugol’s iodine solution has been widely available and used for a number of health problems with some precautions.[2] Lugol’s is sometimes prescribed in a variety of alternative medical treatments.[3][4]

    Until 2007, in the United States of America, Lugol’s solution was unregulated and available over the counter as a general reagent, an antiseptic, a preservative,[5] or as a medicament for human or veterinary application.

    2007 DEA regulation in the United States

    However, effective August 1, 2007, the DEA now regulates Lugol’s solution (and, in fact, all iodine solutions containing greater than 2.2% iodine) as a List I precursor because it may potentially be used in the illicit production of methamphetamine.[6] However, transactions of up to one fluid ounce (30 ml) of Lugol’s solution are exempt from this regulation. By contrast, Lugol’s iodine solution is available over the counter in Canada and Mexico, for example.

  3. Cucurmin – a cancer treatment

    “Imagine a natural substance so smart it can tell the difference between a cancer cell and a normal cell; so powerful it can stop chemicals in their tracks; and so strong it can enable DNA to walk away from lethal doses of radiation virtually unscathed. Curcumin has powers against cancer so beneficial that drug companies are rushing to make drug versions. Curcumin is all this and more.”

    That quote from the July, 2002 issue of the Life Extension Foundation magazine should get your attention. What has happened in the 4 1/2 years since then? A lot.

    Get a load of this quote from a study by M.D. Anderson in Texas in September, 2003: “Extensive research over the last 50 years has indicated [curcumin] can both prevent and treat cancer…Curcumin can suppress tumor initiation, promotion, and metastasis.”

    Why isn’t this wonderful substance being used routinely in oncologist’s offices to treat cancer? Very good question. It occured to me again recently when I read a newsletter this week from Robert Redfern on this subject, which included this latest update:

    “Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, who headed the 12-member team of researchers at University of Texas (U.T) M.D. Anderson Cancer Centre, said earlier this week that his clinical research has made available not only ‘the master switch to turn off cancer, but also a cure for it.’

    ‘It was already known that Curcumin can prevent cancer,’ Aggarwal said. ‘Now it can also be used to cure cancer.’ And, he added: ‘We are providing evidence that Curcumin can work on at least one dozen cancers.’

    ‘In fact, let’s put it this way: we have not found a single cancer on which Curcumin doesn’t work,’ Aggarwal asserted.”

    This herb, which has been used for various healing purposes in Ayurvedic medicine for the last 5,000 years is finally getting the attention it deserves among cancer researchers. If you want the full story, including a reliable source and dosage information, you need to go to www.curcuminhealth.info There, you can listen to a talk by Robert Redfern and subscribe to his newsletter and “e-alerts.” I’m getting them and you should, too. Strongly recommended.


  4. Epicatechin

    Epicatechin (EC)

    Epicatechin improves blood flow and thus seems good for cardiac health. Cocoa, the major ingredient of dark chocolate, contains relatively high amounts of epicatechin and has been found to have nearly twice the antioxidant content of red wine and up to three times that of green tea in in-vitro tests.[9] [10] But in the test outlined above it now appears the beneficial antioxidant effects are minimal as the antioxidants are rapidly excreted from the body.


  5. Sulforaphane

    sulforaphane Sulforaphane glucosinolate, sulphoraphane Oncology An isothiocyanate phytochemical or ‘nutriceutical’ in cruciferous vegetables–eg, broccoli, which may prevent CA. See Cruciferous vegetables, Nutriceutical.


  6. SelenoExcell? High Selenium Yeast Powder Raw Material

    SelenoExcell? High Selenium Yeast raw material is a high-potency (1,200 mcg/g), 100% organically-bound selenium yeast powder ingredient. As a natural nutritional food source, yeast replicates the mineral conversion process performed by most plants (i.e. garlic, broccoli). This natural plant process converts inorganic (low bioavailability, potentially toxic) minerals to safer organic (high bioavailability) forms for improved nutrient utilization. SelenoExcell? is a top quality selenium yeast powdered ingredient supported by a Clinical Trial Agreement with the Cancer Prevention Division of the National Cancer Institute and also selected by leading research teams for a series of health and cancer related studies based on its organic certification and strictly controlled quality as demonstrated by its minimal batch-to-batch variation.
