Can Iodine cause heart palpitations? Yes, it can, if you use too much at a time.
Iodine For Hair Growth: Iodine, of course, is great for stimulating hair growth. But you must not over-do the Iodine.
Heart Palpitations From Iodine: You may get heart palpitations from iodine if you are very sensitive to chemicals, or you have candida albicans, a yeast infection, or you have a weakened immune system. In any of these cases you might experience a slight toxic reaction, with heart palpitations, from using even moderate amounts of iodine on your skin.
Allergy to Iodine: Avoid Using Iodine if you are getting heart palpitations, and see your health professional.
For most people, using Iodine on the skin is not a problem. A dab or two of iodine applied to the skin is healthy for most people, as this helps prevent iodine deficiency. When iodine is applied to the skin, it is absorbed into the skin, into the blood, and benefits the thyroid gland so that you do not get goitre and other malfunctions of the glands, and hormone imbalances.
Many Other Things Can Cause Heart Palpitations: The heart has finely tuned electrical impulses all of its own, as does the brain, and so people can get heart palpitations from being too close to electrical appliances when they are going, or sitting next to an electicity extension cord even while an appliance is not switched on: Alternating currents still go back and forth along a cord to an appliance even if it is not switched on.
Heart palpitations, therefore, can result from being in the close proximity of an electrical generator, transformer, or high tension wires, or being too close to other electro-magnetic forces. These things also affect your brain function, and nervous impulses.
Poor memory can result from exposure to high-level electrical impulses, and even to being exposed to low-level radiation over the long term. Radio waves and electromagnetic vibrations from electrical sources seriously do undermine the health.
Cell phones can cause heart palpitations, as can and do cell phone transmitters. If you spend too much time being close to these energy fields, then your own electrical impulses will be disrupted, and this will have an effect on the whole nervous system, including the brain, the heart and nervous impulses.
Herbicides and pesticides, even in microscopic amounts on the breeze, can cause heart palpitations. Being near hidden sites of rat poison can cause heart palpitations.
Potted indoor orchids, tropical indoor plants, and even vases of flowers, especially if the plants contain alkaloids as in the case with magnolias, can cause heart palpitations. This is because thewater in the vase leaches out some of the poisons in the plant: As this water starts to ferment, the potency of the poisons are increased. Bingo. You have a recipe for causing migraine and heart palpitations.
Heart Palpitations are a Barometer: Getting heart palpitations, for myself, is always a warning that something is not right in my environment. Getting palpitations gives you time to reassess your environment and the poisons around you, and gives you an opportunity to correct things before you get sick. This is how I avoid getting sick from poisonous chemicals and electro-magnetic interference – by listening to my heart. I do not go to the doctor to get something to stop the palpitations, as that will only make the matter worse, and will not address the CAUSE OF THE TROUBLE. Heart palpitations will cease in a healthy body when the cause is removed. Having said that – again, don’t use Iodine if it makes your heart flutter.
So – heart palpitations for me are a good thing, as they alert me to hidden dangers. From there, I have to work out exactly what the contaminant is. Then I can remove the cause.
Using some drugs such as Voltarin, or Warfarin, can cause heart palpitations. I get heart palpitations if I spend too long in the kitchen, cooking, near to where a relative of mine keeps his warfarin on the sink bench.
And did you hear the latest about Voltarin? On the news just last night, Channel One, TVNZ, we heard that you have an 80% chance of suffering a stroke if you take Voltarin.
These drugs should never be prescribed, in my opinion: There are plenty of proven natural and herbal remedies available, to use as alternatives. These alternatives are safe and are better options than orthodox medications to prevent stroke and heart attack. Warfarin and Voltarin, which seem to be prescribed for many people over the age of 55, are very risky medicines indeed, and actually cause a degeration of the vital organs, instead of rejuvenating them.
Avoid Using Iodine If You Get Heart Palpitations: Getting back to the use of Iodine on the skin: If you experience heart palpitations from using iodine directly on the skin, then you should avoid using it. It could be that a candida infection is the problem, or that toxic bowels are making you super-sensitive, or that you are using too much Iodine.
However – if in doubt, then don’t use it. Instead, you should get your iodine straight from the sea-bed, in the way of oysters, mussels, sardines, tuna, and mackerel. Kelp is another excellent source of Iodine.
