Armour Thyroid Medication and Iodine
It is my understanding that when you take Armour, you are getting all the iodine your body can use, because it is supplied in the Armour. If that is so, is it a good idea to take iodine if you are still having symptoms? My symptoms are a lot of coldness, especially of hands and feet, and also I have the redness across the cheeks and nose as you show in your photos.
Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed., in her book "Stop the Thyroid Madness" available in the Iodine Resource Store, mentions that many thyroid patients report that by adding iodine along with their Armour supplementation, helps them to lower their medications. This makes sense since the hormones are primarily composed of iodine.
The liquid Lugols or the pill form Iodoral are two great choices. You may experience some detox effects with the addition of iodine, but this will pass. These products are also in the site store
Start slowly and build up the dosage. It appears that the Armour is not supplying you with sufficient iodine to assuage your symptoms. By adding iodine, the symptons should slowly ease.
