Treating Thyroid Nodules

By Monday, 12 March 2012 09:02 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Question: I was diagnosed with thyroid nodules approximately one year ago. Happily, the nodules were found to be benign. Should thyroid nodules be treated or simply followed to ensure they are not cancerous?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

Nodules on the thyroid, breasts, ovaries, uterus, or prostate are not normal. When the architecture of the glands becomes damaged, nodules and cysts start to form. If the condition worsens, it can lead to cancer.

One cause of cysts and nodules in glandular tissue is iodine deficiency. I would suggest that you have your iodine checked by a healthcare provider knowledgeable about iodine levels.

If your levels are low, iodine supplementation may help this condition. Also, trying to avoid toxic halogens such as fluoride, and bromine, found in pool disinfectants, clothing, computers, and other common items, helps. I have seen many patients cure nodules and cysts in their glandular tissue, including the thyroid and breasts.

More information can be found in my book, "Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It."
