If you’re dealing with the feeling of “pins and needles”, numbness, or intense stabbing pains in your feet, legs, and arms, you are dealing with neuropathy. Prescription drugs for the problem cause more problems. I want you to know about the formula that can deal with all of these problems – drug free.
Q. Dear Terry, “Is there any way of getting rid of eye floaters? I've had them for 5 or 6 years, some days they make it very difficult to even drive. My optometrist says there is nothing they can do for them, that it is just old age.” — W.B., Fort Wayne, IN
Q. Dear Terry, “My pup, well she’s a 14 year old terrier mix, has been experiencing some incontinence issues. I’m hoping there is something natural I can give her, instead of a prescription medication. What would you give your dog?” — Zara L., Nashua, NH

You’ve probably heard of iodine and may have wondered why you need it. The answer is: for just about everything. Unfortunately, iodine has been a sadly neglected mineral in our diets since the 1940s, and it was considered only necessary for preventing goiter.
But research shows that all tissues of the body require iodine. It’s pretty well known that iodine helps fuel the thyroid – our metabolism’s ‘gas pedal’, but it’s less widely reported that iodine also protects breast tissue and prostate cells, helps regulate hormones, and detoxifies dangerous iodine competitors like chlorine, bromide, and fluoride – all common chemicals in daily life.
Everyone needs iodine each day, but if you find yourself easily fatigued, gaining weight easily, or getting sick frequently, I’d recommend starting off with a higher level. Just make sure your iodine comes from varied sources, including molecular iodine, sodium iodide, and potassium iodide, because each type targets specific concerns.
Integrative practitioners often suggest 50 mg per day for 3 months followed by 6.25 or 12.5 mg daily thereafter for optimal health. However, when working with higher doses of iodine, I’d encourage you to discuss it with your healthcare practitioner to find a dose that is right for you.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
Don't Be Afraid to Be Different
When you become a follower of Christ, your life becomes different. Everything about you becomes different. When we follow God’s commands, it means we do things differently from others. It means, instead of being offended, we choose love. Instead of insisting on our way, we serve others. It means, instead of trying to be right all the time, we build and lift others up.
This isn’t the way most people in the world act, but that’s okay. We are called to be different. We are called to rise higher. We are called to be examples of God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness. It may not make sense to others, but that’s okay. God will promote you to a new level of blessing and victory when you commit yourself fully to Him. Don't live a life of mediocrity, live a life of excellence for God. Life a life pleasing to Him and don't be afraid to be different!
