The End of Antibiotics and the Rise of Iodine as an Effective Alternative
Eventually antibiotics are going to be seen as one of the worst things to ever come out of pharmaceutical science because in the end, they have made us only weaker in the face of ever increasingly strong super bugs that are resistant to all the antibiotics doctors have at their disposal. When we look at how deep the rabbit hole goes with antibiotics, we will get sick in our souls. Antibiotics have fulfilled their antiĖbiotic anti-life role leaving a long trail of death and suffering in the wake of their use.
Diseases include measles, scarlet fever, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, pneumonia, influenza, whooping cough, diphtheria and polio. All were in decline for several decades before the introduction of antibiotics or vaccines - Dr. Lawrence Wilson.
Antibiotics do not kill yeast. Many women find after taking antibiotics, they get vaginal yeast infections (because their normal bacterial balance has been lost). Antibiotics bring on fungal and yeast infections thus will eventually be seen as a major cause of cancer since more and more oncologists are seeing yeast and fungal infections as an integral part of cancer and its cause. With upwards of 40 percent of all cancers thought to be involved with and caused by infections, the subject of antibiotics and the need for something safer, more effective and life serving is imperative.
It may be some time before we really enter the predicted "post antibiotic era" in which common infections are frequently untreatable - Dr. Marc Lipsitch et al. (Harvard School of Public Health).
Antibiotics kill all bacteria in the body, including the ones we need.
Iodine - a Pillar Against Infections
Iodine offers a serious and potent replacement for much of the antibiotics that are literally destroying people's lives and can be used safely with children. Parents, who chose not to dose their kids with dangerous vaccines will be glad to know that iodine can be very effective against a host of viral infections that medical officials insist threaten children.
Though it kills 90 percent of bacteria on the skin within 90 seconds, its use as an antibiotic has been ignored. Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa, and many viruses; indeed, of all antiseptic preparations suitable for direct use on humans and animals and upon tissues, only iodine is capable of killing all classes of pathogens: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, yeasts, viruses and protozoa. Most bacteria are killed within 15 to 30 seconds of contact.
Iodine is by far the best antibiotic, antiviral and antiseptic of all time - Dr. David Derry
Dr. Derry says that iodine is effective "for standard pathogens such as Staphylococcus, but also iodine has the broadest range of action, fewest side effects and no development of bacterial resistance." There is a world of difference between using an antibiotic Ė anti-life substance Ė and an antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal substance like iodine, which is life serving because it is a basic and most necessary nutritional substance.
Iodine kills single celled organisms by combining with the amino acids tyrosine or histidine when they are exposed to the extra-cellular environment. All single cells showing tyrosine on their outer cell membranes are killed instantly by a simple chemical reaction with iodine that denatures proteins. Nature and evolution have given us an important mechanism to control pathogenic life forms and we should use it and trust it to protect us in ways that antibiotics can't.
"My husband Ron had a small infection at the base of the nail. This very quickly turned nasty and our doctor agreed it looked like gout. Three weeks later Ron heard back from his Doctor who was in a mad panic saying Ron had septicemia. On seeing the surgeon that same day the surgeon wanted to go in and cut the finger open end for end and look at the finger and that she would probably have to take it off anyway. Finally the Nascent Iodine we ordered arrived (my husband was refusing to take antibiotics) He started on quite a hefty dose of 15 drops while continuing to apply magnesium chloride transdermally."
"Two days after starting the iodine there was feeling starting to regenerate and pain again in the finger and Ron thought it looked less discolored. Then the following day the swelling had started to go down and the normal healthy pinkness was returning at the base of the finger. Over a period of days it has progressively improved with no other treatment than the iodine and magnesium chloride. We also then made a poultice with a mixture of comfrey, honey and garlic for a few days, then the Nascent Iodine dripped into a goldenseal ointment."
Magnesium chloride is the only form of magnesium known to have anti-infectious properties. When it comes to fighting infections, iodine and magnesium chloride are a dynamic duo that should not be overlooked by allopathic or naturopathic physicians or by anyone else. I talked a few months ago to a missionary in Africa who was using iodine (in the atomic or detoxified form) to successfully treat malaria. My own children have recently had bad coughs and it is iodine, not dangerous over-the-counter cough medicines I reach for.
The feeling of security for a parent comes from administering substances like iodine (Nascent and other forms) and magnesium chloride (natural forms) to their children. Yes in dire emergency we would still use an antibiotic when fever is high and all else has failed but until that kind of critical point, iodine, backed up by magnesium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and even clay, is our main line of defense against a full range of pathogens.
Determining what is an appropriate use of an antibiotic is a judgment call in which cultural, social, psychological, and economic factors play at least as great a role as clinical and epidemiological considerations - Dr. Marc Lipsitch et al.
The way to combat antibiotic resistance is not bigger, better, stronger antibiotics but, rather, no antibiotics at all. Instead, other molecular weapons are available with the ability to disable bad germs without bothering good ones. Iodine is the ideal broad spectrum antibiotic that is not an antibiotic - it is not against life. Not against human life that is but you can hear the little pathogens screaming as high enough levels of iodine fan out through the system. Meaning all the viruses, bacteria, yeasts and molds that are threatening us are threatened with instant death when iodine is used orally to fight infection. It's hard to make a mistake with iodine but with pharmaceutical antibiotics we are playing at the crap table hoping our choice of which one to use works against the pathogen that is actually threatening a person.

Importance of Iodine
The History of Iodine
Review Of Atomidine (Iodine)
I was at a meeting last fall attended by friends, among whom was a naturopath. We took a break and went outside to toss a Frisbee to the dogs. While outside, I asked my new friend, the naturopath, to take a look in my ear and make a recommendation. Iíd had a pimple (or a boil) in there and all Iíd done thus far was keep it irrigated and clean hoping my immune system would eventually stop the infection. He looked at me and said, "Iíd get that sucker lanced."
The ear canal was nearly shut tight. The infection was red and hot and that night, upon returning home, it was throbbing and painful. I resigned myself to run to the emergency room in the morning, pay cash, and have someone "lance that sucker."
I got online to check my email before heading to sleep, when I spotted a good friend online who immediately sent me an IM asking me how I was. I told herÖthe whole story and my plans, when she said, "Too bad you donít have some Atomidine." I asked her what the heck that was, and she explained that it was detoxified iodine, something Edgar Cayce had come up with. My eyes dropped to my desk, where a padded envelope lay, upon which the return address read "Cayce Concepts." [Note that Cayce Concepts is no longer where you can get this iodine, but rather has moved to www.Iodinesource.com. I grabbed the envelope, ripped it open, and out rolled a bottle of Atomidine.
I love this universe.
I donít know what I said to my friend, but I quickly signed off, opened the bottle and squeezed two drops into the dropper. I placed the eyedropper into my ear as far as it would go (which wasnít very far) tilted my head and squeezed slowly. You wonít believe the pain. Boy, that stung. But within half an hour, the swelling in my ear canal had shrunk 50% and the pain was cut in half too. I was impressed.
In the morning, the inflammation was nearly gone. Having read the materials Phil (of The Iodine Source) had sent along the night before, I decided to stick with the Atomidine rather than see a doctor that day. I took two more drops (again, it stung like a killer bee) but by that evening, the ear infection was history.
Iodine is toxic. What you get in the store I would NOT put in my mouth. Having a friend who owed me a favor (who just happens to be a chemist), I sent him a CC of the Atomidine in a bottle for a toxicology reading. He reported back, "Hey, this is some good stuff." I asked how much could the average adult take in a week. His response was, "A heck of a lot more than any other iodine out there." He seemed to feel that one or two CCs a week would not be harmful, but that side effects should be noted if they occurred. We both agreed that it was powerful stuff and should be used with caution. Someone once asked me, "Why do you take all of your discoveries and put them in your mouth?"
The one thing Iíve picked up along the way, from my days as a student (lasting some 15 years) and my days overseas (as a volunteer) is gum disease. All my greatest discoveries go into treating this. Gum disease can lead to CVD (Cardiovascular Disease, again, see our publication, Bypassing Bypass. Brushing with three drops of Atomidine three times a week is a great way to get the iodine your body needs, especially if you are off fish (vegetarian or vegan) and donít eat any sea vegetables. Fish are toxic sponges and many nutritionists warn us against too much fish in our diets. (See also the Farmed Salmon Warnings) So Iíve added three drops of Atomidine to my teethbrushing routine, three times a week. (My dentist says Iím his best patient.)
I fell in love with my Atomidine. I love to work hard and play hard and when I come inside, Iím always cut, scraped, or bleeding somewhere. Now I put a drop of Atomidine on the cut and it heals in less than three days. Stings, but it heals.
And then, out of the blue, we were contacted by Baar Products and asked to review their Atomidine. We received it in the mail, opened the envelope, and large bottle dropped out, but it was clear, like water. The other stuff was bright red.
The differences between the two, we found out later through interviews and letters, etc, is that the Baar Atomic Iodine is made with 1% iodine-trichloride in water (if youíll recall, iodine mixed with potassium or chlorine is water soluble). Cayce Conceptís Atomidine is 1% iodine in alcohol. As you can guess, or if you have a degree in chemistry, the second is stronger (and more expensive). Both have been magnetically charged in the manner prescribed by the Cayce readings. Baarís product tastes salty, and does not burn much when applied.
Wanting to compare the two, I remembered someone I know has an occasional ear fungus problem. He scratches the ear canal (because the fungus itches) and eventually breaks the skin and it gets all messy in there. I asked him to put two drops of the Baar Atomidine in his infected ear and get some sleep and tell me the results in the morning.
He responded that it had helped some the night before, but by morning, the ear was just bad as the day previous. So then I asked him to put two drops of the Cayce Concept product in his ear, and his reply was: "Wowuch!!! That stuff burns! I checked back a little later and the infection (and itch) were gone. That night, still gone. The next day, still gone.
Cayce Concepts' Atomidine is the better product. At least in our humble estimation. However, I wouldnít judge the Baar product as being worthless. Itís weaker, and since itís in water, it can be mixed with many things to supply you your iodine needs.
Both Baar and Cayce Concepts claim that theirs is the authentic form and that from the readings their product is the one that Cayce talked about. I bought a CD from Baar with all of Cayceís readings on Iodine and though iodine-trichloride is mentioned, nowhere is the exact form of iodine mentioned either. I did find a spot where someone inquired of Cayce, "In what medium is iodine dissolved?" and the reply was: alcohol. This happens to be true, and happens to be something that Cayce would probably not have known in a waking state (since he was not a chemist).
I am using the Baar product. Iíve mixed it into my shampoo, since Cayce mentioned that it mixes well with shampoo and helps keep your scalp healthy and clean and stops hair loss (oh please please please please).
You can reach Phil at Cayce Concepts on the web: www.IodineSource. He doesnít have much of a store online, but you can many of Cayceís therapies (equipment) there to try on your own. Phil is very dedicated and sincere about his work and wants to bring Cayceís healing remedies back into the mainstream.
Baar Products can be found at www.baar.com and you will see nearly everything that Cayce talked about in his readings, including books on Cayce and the famous Cayce readings CD (which costs $150.00 and was quite useful in the research for his article).
Each person believes his product is superior and that his product is the actual one Cayce described and produced according to eachís understanding of the Cayce readings. Me? I just donít know. Though, I must rank Cayce Conceptsís Atomidine a giant step above Baarís product. My medicine chest will not be without a bottle at all times. Put one in your First Aid kit too.
Additionally, Barr's product, Iodine Trichloride, should NEVER be used internally. Here is the Material Safety Data Sheet on Iodine Trichloride; #2

CAUTION: According to Phil Thomas, all iodine has a poisonous effect upon the body unless it is first detoxified, and even then itís a powerful element to contend with. As is the case with everything, the body and itís reaction are specific to that given situation and/or individual. Iodine Source
PRODUCT: Detoxified Iodine
IodineSource.com is your source for detoxified iodine. Unlike commercially available products, which use iodine bonded with chlorine, we use only naturally occurring iodine derived from organic Asian seaweed, as was specified in the Cayce readings. This pure crystalline iodine is then reduced to a 1% concentration in 100% ethyl alcohol and electro-magnetically transmuted (while being suspended in a wet bath containing a mild acid solution) into the Atomic state. This is the form which Mr. Cayce suggested the body could recognize and fully assimilate, and indeed was his primary contribution to the concept. From there it is bottled in 1/2 oz. (amber) dropper bottles and unless otherwise indicated, labeled and sealed with a full bottle heat shrink. For more information about detoxified iodine, go to Cayce Concepts. $20.00/bottle. 6 bottles/$60.00
Detoxified Iodine Products
From the Cayce readings, we get this:
Knowing the tendencies, supply in the vital energies that ye call the vitamins, or elements. For, remember, while we give many combinations, there are only four elements in your body, - water, salt, soda and iodine. These are the basic elements, they make all the rest! Each vitamin as a component part of an element is simply a combination of these other influences, given a name mostly for confusion to individuals, by those who would tell you what to do for a price.
This is an amazing statement, laughed at by the so-called scientific community, but investigated by others. Scientific types will tell you that water, salt, and soda (calcium carbonate) are not elements, while iodine is. Cayce was not an educated man. Recordings of his readings are hard to understand at times, because he went into a trance. In other words, he was asleep and sounded oftentimes like someone talking in his sleep. When he uses the word element, he is not using a chemistry denotation, but rather a loose connotation.
He often said that three or four drops of Atomidine three or four times a week were all you needed to stay healthy. How much exactly? That's hard to determine since it's your body that needs it at your levels and not at mine or your neighbors'.
