Atomidine® – New Information On An Old Reliable Product
INTRODUCTION: What Atomidine® Is
Edgar Cayce has often been referred to as the sleeping prophet and perhaps the only prophetic personality to the Americas. Made famous for his healings and medical readings in the 1930’s, Cayce was himself a man modest in personality and of means.
Atomidine has poetically been referred to as the ‘golden liquid fish’, because of its iodine content. It is actually a clear, yellow-gold liquid that is a concentrated source of iodine, a mineral particularly abundant in the ocean, and in its products and creatures. In view of this abundance, how any individual can be deficient in this mineral is a mystery until one examines its chemical nature.
Although ordinary iodine is useful externally in various preparations for antiseptic purposes, solutions of iodine in this form would be poisonous irritants if taken internally. In sources such as kelp and other types of seaweed, the iodine is in a form that can be better assimilated, but it apparently remains somewhat irritating to the system.
Atomidine however is at least according to Cayce, uniquely different from substances based on molecular iodine compounds such as these. By a special process, iodine is compounded in a solution that liberates the element in an atomic or nascent state on contact with an excess of solvent, such as the fluids of the body. Iodine is thus furnished in a form that is readily utilized. In addition, what Cayce called ‘atomic iodine’, or Atomidine, is believed to be more active, less toxic, and less irritating to the system than molecular iodine, and is thus suitable for internal use in small quantities in addition to its effectiveness as an external antiseptic.
What is the nature of the process that transforms ordinary iodine into such a valuable, non-toxic state? Basically a solution of iodine trichloride is treated with several herbal compounds. The result is Atomidine, which contains approximately 1/100 grain of iodine in each drop of the solution, supplying in a single drop approximately six times the minimum daily requirement of iodine.
Unfortunately, the very fact that a drop of Atomidine does supply six times the MDR of iodine places it outside the category of iodine products such as kelp tablets which can be legally used in oral form. This is because in the U.S., at present, drug law limits the maximum allowable iodine content of a single dose of a non-prescription drug or food supplement to .15 milligram or 150% of the adult minimum daily requirement.
