ATTENTION WOMEN: Pooped out? Tummy Spreading Out? Hair Thinning Out?
“Maybe You Need A
Super Iodine Boost!”
“Discover How This One, Super Cheap Supplement Can Kick-Start Your Metabolism, Giving You a Whole New Lease On Life...”
(And More Vibrant Energy Than You’ve Felt In Years!)
A special message from legendary game show host Wink Martindale…
Dear Health Conscious Friend,
It’s a quiet scourge affecting millions of women.
- No matter how much you sleep, you’re always waking up exhausted.
- Practically forcing yourself out of bed, you look in the mirror – running your hand through your hair. Does it just seem thinner - less robust lately – or is it really falling out?
- When cleaning out the shower drain, it hits home. The stark truth is staring you right in the face… clumps and wads of hair… and all of it yours.
- You’re tired – all the time. You just about drag yourself along on sheer willpower. When even that starts to dwindle, it’s coffee, coffee and more coffee. Anything to give you the caffeine buzz you need to function.
- You go through the day in a brain fog. It doesn’t matter how much coffee you drink, or how many overpriced caffeine-saturated concoctions you gulp down, nothing seems to clear your head or give you the healthy energy you’re desperately seeking.
- Then there’s the maddening weight gain. You’ve been watching your diet, cutting out the junk food, exercising... and nothing helps. It isn’t the scale, it’s you. In fact, not only haven’t you lost anything – you’re gaining even more pounds!
You ask yourself… is all this normal? What we should be expecting from Mother Nature? Slowly, inevitably, unavoidably winding down as the years go by?
Well….there’s good news and bad news.
It usually starts when you pass your middle 20s, slowly but surely making it harder and harder to keep fit and trim, many times getting progressively worse as you age. Many really don't notice these symptoms until after childbirth… when it just hits, seemingly out of nowhere.
That “baby weight gain” isn’t lost. Melancholy and exhaustion are constant companions, and you just don’t feel “right” in your own body anymore.
If you try talking to your doctor about it, you’ll often be humored and told to “eat less and exercise more.” Insist on having your thyroid levels checked, your physician will reluctantly order a thyroid blood test.
Almost predictably, when it comes back it’ll say the thyroid is normal. You’ll then be told it’s “all in your head” and all to often be given a prescription for a mild anti-depressant.
But the fact of the matter is this…
Your “Head” is Fine…
Your Thyroid Probably Isn’t!
Here's a dirty little secret most doctors won’t discuss. When a medical test is done, any result within a wide range is deemed normal. The thyroid could be barely functioning at 30% efficiency, but tests will say that’s fine. .
Well, it’s not fine. And you have the problems to prove it.
Keep complaining, and you’ll probably be told to go on yet another diet and hit the gym more often. The same things you’ve been trying over and over again – with the same yo-yo, short-term “success” at best. Since the tests were "normal" the thing that could help you most won't be given : The actual thyroid hormone.
My name is Dr. A. P. Jones - President of Natural Living, Inc. Perhaps you’ve heard me on the radio or seen me on television – addressing my millions of listeners regarding the serious health issues facing us today.
Before starting Natural Living, I was a practicing physician for over 20 years, as well as being Board Certified in Internal Medicine. During that time, part of my practice focused on the management of hormones, including the lack of thyroid hormones and their related problems and symptoms.
My investigations into these issues lead me to the key role that supplements, including high potency iodine supplementation, play in restoring vigorous overall health, including a proper functioning thyroid.
Today I am no longer in practice seeing patients, but I constantly stress the need for proper nutrition and healthy, holistic living. This is especially important in the “modern” environment we now live in – an environment filled with toxins, chemical residues, and rogue hormones – a virtual cornucopia of health damaging substances.
Whenever I get the chance, I do my best in spreading the word about how these toxins are finding their way into our daily lives, our foodstuffs and our bodies, and what we can do to lessen or even reverse their ill effects.
My time is devoted to expanding the reach of holistic alternatives for optimal health, and of course, building Natural Living into a recognized leader in the health and wellness supplement sector.
You Can Now Safely Burn More Calories
& Lose Weight Naturally…
Without Going On Dangerous Fad Diets!
How? By making one important change to your diet, and adding a simple but vital supplement: Iodine.
Just how important is iodine? Consider this… about 25¢ worth is all that stands between an infant developing normally and one that’ll be severely mentally handicapped the rest of its life.
Iodine is absolutely essential, especially for creating the thyroid hormone. But as we grow older, our thyroid starts slowing down. It just can’t metabolize the iodine it needs as efficiently, and that means the hormone produced (also known as thyroid) decreases as well.
There are 2 other reasons why most of us are iodine deficient:
- Inadequate dietary intake, and
- Exposure to toxic substances that displace iodine.
Iodine (a mineral) is not abundant in the food we eat. Primarily found in seawater at very small quantities, soils are naturally deficient in iodine, especially the further away one gets from the ocean.
Iodine is also fairly easily displaced from the body by toxins called toxic halides… fluoride, bromine and chloride.
Fluoride is by far the worst culprit. Found in toothpaste and in the water supply, every time you take a shower, brush your teeth or drink from the tap, the body gets a little exposure to fluoride, leeching out good iodine. And contrary to popular belief, fluoridated water is actually rather poor at preventing tooth decay.
Why is it in our water supply then? Poor science combined with corporate greed and political ignorance paved the way. Basically a toxic by-product of aluminum production, fluoridation was sold as a way to prevent cavities because some areas with natural fluoride in the water also had lower instances of tooth decay. Based upon that spurious observation, fluoridation began.
It is indeed curious, when scrapped off aluminum refinery smokestacks, the fluoride is considered a hazardous waste. But put it in bags and dump it into the water supply, it somehow magically transforms itself into something beneficial.
Then there’s bromine, an endocrine disruptor that competes for the same receptors for capturing iodine. Essentially, bromine crowds out iodine.
How prevalent is bromine? Consider this, every time you bite into a piece of store bought bread, you’re probably ingesting some bromine. It’s used to make bread dough more elastic and thus easier to handle, but not by very much.
Where else is bromine found? How about…
- Bakery goods
- Citrus flavored soft drinks
- Fabric fire retardants
- Hair dyes
- Pesticides used on strawberries, especially in California
- Spaghetti & pasta
- Toothpaste and mouthwashes, and
- Your automobile!
Quite an extensive list when you think about it.
If You’re Human, There's Up To a 96%
Chance of Being Iodine Deficient!
Because of what we just spoke about, 96% of all people tested are iodine deficient! This according to a study of 4000 patients conducted by Dr. David Brownstein, Medical Director for The Center of Holistic Medicine, and renowned author of several groundbreaking books on hormones and iodine.
The World Health Organization also concurs, estimating that 72% of the world’s population is being affected by iodine deficiency.
This trend is worsening. Over the last 30 years, the NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I) shows iodine levels have dropped 50% in the U.S.A. alone.
Pregnancy, “Baby Weight Gain” & Your Thyroid
This is a common problem all too many women experience, especially after their second or third child. That “baby weight” gained during pregnancy just refuses to come off. It doesn’t matter how careful you are about diet and exercise. Those stubborn extra pounds stick to you like they’ve been soldered on.
The fact is this: Your iodine reserves have in all probability been almost totally drained.
During pregnancy, your unborn baby gets first dibs in almost everything. Vitamins, minerals, hormones – you name it. It’s nature’s way of making sure the human race survives.
After the first child, you probably still have some iodine reserves left. They may be lower, but they are still there for your thyroid to use. But after the second child, and then a third, those remaining iodine reserves can be depleted dry.
By diverting all available iodine to the child, your body literally sacrifices its own well-being in the process. (Motherhood can be tough!)
The second jinx when it comes to weight gain is sugar. You may think you’re cutting out all the bad stuff, but just take a quick look at the food labels on the products you buy. Sugar is almost always present. Even worse is the prevalence of high fructose corn syrup – one of the WORST types of sugar you can eat.
How bad is this sugar problem? See our linked article: Sugar Blues. If you are at all serious about losing weight, this information is a must read!
Breast Tissue & Iodine
A Double Whammy For Women
As if pregnancy wasn’t enough of a problem, here’s yet another: Women have more thyroid problems than men simply because of breast tissue. Did you know a woman’s breasts require almost as much iodine as the thyroid?
For women, iodine has to do double, or during pregnancy, even triple duty.
Since men can't get pregnant, and they (usually) don’t have breasts, women are unfortunately the ones who are typically more prone to being iodine deficient.
A Host Of Indications &
Devastating Manifestations –
Including Weight Gain!
The downward spiral in your health is slight at first, almost unnoticeable. Your vitality isn’t what it used to be, your get up and go seems to have got up and gone.
You tire more easily, but you sleep less deeply.
You gain weight… sometimes you just look at a French Fry and it goes straight to your hips!
Chalking it up to a busy lifestyle and poor eating habits, you probably ignore it, possibly for years. But the changes in your body go on and on.
What Are The Deficiency Indicators?
The descriptions mentioned above are the most commonly accepted effects associated with an under-active thyroid. Please be aware this list is for informational purposes only, and is not intended to take the place of a medical diagnosis by a competent physician.
If you truly need to know EXACTLY how much circulating iodine is in your system, there is a method physicians can use. It isn’t easy, and it is time consuming and expensive – but no other tests even come close to its accuracy.
- The patient “challenges” his or her body by taking 50 mg of iodine (equivalent to 4 IodinePlus-2 tablets).
- They then must collect their urine multiple times over a 24 hour period.
- Every drop of urine collected goes into a large two – three gallon jug, which is stored in the fridge between fillings. After the 24 hours are up, you take that jug to an accredited lab for analysis and the results.
- You will have to see a doctor both before and after the tests are completed.
Iodine, The Thyroid Gland & Weight Loss
There are actually four types of thyroid hormones: T1, T2, T3, and T4. The most important are T3 and T4.
The bottom line is that if there is not enough iodine in the thyroid gland, then it is impossible to have sufficient thyroid hormone of any type. The result is an under active thyroid.
As recently as 2007 (my last year in practice), a handful of progressive doctors including myself, were writing prescriptions for thyroid hormones in patients who had clinical hypothyroid symptoms (regardless of blood tests). This was relatively successful.
However, iodine supplementation alone may be sufficient. Of course, monitoring by a physician is always recommended before any medication is altered or withdrawn.
This is a win-win situation - especially for women (and men!) who are experiencing stubborn, on-going weight gain, or finding it almost impossible to lose weight at all.
Premium, High Potency Iodine
It would be great if you could just walk into your local drug store or health food shop and be able to get your iodine supplements without any problems.
But here’s the thing – you can’t.
You see, there are two types of iodine necessary for optimal nutrition and thyroid function: Iodine and iodide. The iodine supplements you normally find are made from kelp – a seaweed – lacking in iodide. Plus, the iodine supplements on the retail shelves are about 100 times too weak to be effective.
Low iodine can lead to low energy and weight gain, along with a busload of other problems.
It’s that straightforward.
You’d literally have to be downing an entire bottle of low potency pills each day. Which is not only totally impractical, but downright expensive!
These problems can now be addressed - by using the exact same supplement recommended by me and Natural Living…IodinePlus2
Why do we recommend extra iodine?
Because iodine is not only critical for a healthy thyroid, it’s present and used in every single cell in the human body, including…
- Salivary glands
- Cerebrospinal fluid and the brain
- Gastric mucosa
- Choroid plexus (part of the brain)
Each tablet contains a full 5 mg of Iodine combined with a balanced amount of 7.5 mg of Iodide – the optimal formulation for peak bio-availability.
Plus... each IodinePlus2 tablet contains two other essential ingredients:
- -- Selenium for enhancing conversion of the inactive thyroid hormone T4 into the active thyroid hormone T3, and
- -- Vitamins B2 (Riboflavin) for enhanced utilization
Giving that extra boost for finally realizing true weight loss goals.
Feel Better, Live Better, Be Better…
For most people, just one easy to swallow IodinePlus2 tablet each day is all that's needed for kick-starting that thyroid into activity. Cut out the sugar as well, and your health will soar to new heights, while that flabby waistline almost dissolves away.
By cutting out sugar and bringing the thyroid back to optimum activity, energy levels can increase the natural way – banishing that chronic fatigue along with those unsightly bulges. You’ll start to feel alive, motivated and refreshed, without the “wired for sound” jitters many of those so-called “diet-elixirs” are well known to cause.
Plus… here’s something that’s bound to make you smile: Not only will you be getting the amazing benefits iodine has to offer, and not only will you be getting it in a convenient, easy to swallow pill… it’s nowhere near the cost of most any other high priced formulation you’ll see advertised on the web or on TV.
NEW PRICE REDUCTION – LIMITED TIME OFFER:
Our best offer works for IodinePlus2 out to all of… $10 $9 per month!
There’s absolutely no more excuses for not getting all the benefits now available to you – so take advantage of this special offer and order today… right now in fact.
The rewards will be nothing less than phenomenal.
Three Extremely Common Iodine Questions
Question 1: Can I safely take iodine supplements even if I’m taking other thyroid-stimulating preparations?
We constantly hear from our readers about some important questions. The first is about taking iodine while using other thyroid hormone-acting preparations. Is this safe and effective?
The answer is always yes!
Iodine is an essential mineral, necessary for the proper functioning of every cell in your body. Iodine will not interfere with other preparations. If anything, iodine will enhance their efficiency!
Question 2: Can I take too much iodine?
You can’t harm yourself by taking “too much” iodine.
Any excess is secreted through sweat and urine. (And you definitely can’t be made allergic to iodine. If that were to happen, you would expire in a matter of days – if not hours! As noted above, every cell in your body is dependent upon iodine and thyroid hormones for its survival.)
Most over the counter iodine supplements are woefully low in strength. You would literally have to down dozens of those pills a day in order to get anywhere near a proper dose of high quality iodine.
Question 3: The TSH Puzzle
Here’s an enigma which even stumped many scientists. When diagnosing for hypothyroidism (low thyroid), one of the thyroid panel tests given is for circulating TSH levels. TThe higher the TSH numbers on the test, the greater the presumed deficiency.
Here is the logic to this. As thyroid levels drop, the body desperately tries to increase circulating thyroid hormone levels. TSH – or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone – is released to do just this, attempting to convert every last molecule of iodine it can find into usable hormones.
When given thyroid hormone preparations, TSH levels do drop. Again, logical because more thyroid hormone is being artificially introduced into the body.
But here’s the problem – your body is looking for iodine in order to manufacture thyroid hormones on its own. The thyroid preparations supply the hormone (or a somewhat near equivalent of it) but not the essential iodine.
The result? Your body now becomes dependent upon these substances.When high potency quality iodine is introduced in the form of a supplement – an interesting paradox happens. TSH levels literally soar! Most physicians seeing this would press the panic button then and there, which may well be a mistake.
As soon as the iodine levels are increased, the body recognizes this and starts pumping out TSH at increased levels in order to take full advantage of the situation.
It’s like you coming home after a sweltering hot day and downing several glasses of cold water. Your body is responding to the stimulus of dehydration by making you incredibly thirsty.
By flooding the body with essential iodine, you are giving yourself exactly what your system is craving. TSH levels rise, converting the iodine into usable hormones. Since the thyroid works slowly (!) these elevated TSH levels can stay high for 6 months to a year – until your body once again reaches balance.
So yes, taking a supplement like IodinePlus2 is both safe and healthy.
However, it is always recommended you consult with your doctor or primary health care provider if you are taking prescribed thyroid hormones and start on iodine supplementation.
Imagine the Life Awaiting You…
Where exhaustion and depression just aren’t in your vocabulary, being fit and firm is the norm, and your runaway weight gain simply stops.
Your hair is full and lustrous, and your face practically shines with robust health.
A time when looking into the mirror, the “old you” has disappeared, being replaced with the woman your husband fell head over heals in love with…
It’s possible. It’s doable. It’s easy.
Order your supply right now… quickly, securely and safely over the internet.
Just click here:
Your iodine/iodide supplement will be sent directly to your doorstep. And remember, no prescriptions or doctor’s visits are necessary.
I’m well aware many of you may be skeptical that a simple supplement can bring all these benefits - even when other diets, supplements and aids have simply failed. However, if I wasn’t 100% convinced the iodine/iodide supplementation found in IodinePlus2 is the answer you've been seeking, I wouldn’t be putting my name and my reputation on the line supporting it.
So why order right now? Because each day you wait is yet another day of abundant living delayed.
Iodine – Will it Work 100% of the Time?
I truly believe we can all benefit from increasing our iodine intake with safe and proven supplements like IodinePlus-2. Especially now, since our seas are being slowly strangled by the Fukushima nuclear disaster – which is still pouring hundreds of tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean - every single day.
However, here is something you should be aware of. When I was in private practice, this is what I saw over and over again:
- 80% of those taking high potency iodine supplements experienced lasting and obvious benefits. Their thyroid was in all probability iodine-starved, and was just waiting for new iodine supplies in order to start functioning normally again.
- 20% experienced little or no results. For them, their thyroid deficiency or hypothyroid symptoms were probably not iodine related, but due to other causes. The human body is both complex and inter-dependent. While taking iodine supplements can’t hurt in any way, a person’s current state of health may be affected by other, less obvious reasons.
- As noted above, taking an iodine supplement may skew thyroid panel test results – sometimes significantly. This is to be expected! Make sure you re-read our conversation about “The TSH Puzzle.”

Belly Fat Burner Targets Abdominal Fat!
I have some breakthrough news for those of you constantly fighting the “battle of the tummy bulges!”
You’ve read how a sluggish thyroid can be responsible for weight gain. Getting your thyroid up to speed is crucial in any serious weight-management program.
However, there are areas on the body where it seems no matter how much we diet, watch what we eat, work out and take the proper supplements, the fat just refuses to budge.
The stomach and side obliques (love handles) are two such examples.
For whatever rhyme or reason, it looks like Mother Nature has taken some sort of wicked delight in making sure those “jelly-belly rolls” around our middle stay put.
I know this first-hand! Even after holding onto a nutritious diet, hitting the gym several times a week and leading a generally active, productive life, I still found it almost impossible to lose my love-handles. I definitely wasn’t the only person with this problem.
But here’s the good news… after months of research, I’ve come up with a unique, breakthrough supplement for directly targeting those stubborn, hard to displace abdominal fat reserves.
The secret lies with two little known bio-nutrients:
- Forskolin – which significantly increases lean muscle tissue, bone mass and metabolism – while lowering total body fat and hunger pangs, and
- Fucoxanthin – which seemingly targets abdominal fat by directly influencing the UCP1 protein, which increases metabolism of the white adipose tissue found along our tummy and sides.
I then took the extra steps of adding six additional, all natural components to intensify this belly fat burning effect!
In fact – that’s what I call this brand new supplement: Belly Fat Burner.
If you’re looking for that extra edge and added advantage for finally toning your abs and sides, try this supplement. It’s what I whole-heartedly recommend!
