Halide Profile (Iodine Test)

24 HOUR URINARY IODINE LOADING EXCRETION TEST

About the Halide Profile

The Halide Profile (Iodine test) measures the amount of Iodine that your body needs, by determining how much you absorb over a 24-hour period. Iodine is an important element for detoxification, thyroid function, and immunity. It is essential for the healthy functioning of the entire hormonal system. Whilst Bromide is a dangerous and toxic Halide that blocks the use of Iodine at a cellular level. Even a minor amount of Bromide toxicity will contribute to your symptoms and affect your metabolic function. This test allows us to establish the therapeutic dosage of Iodine that you need.

Iodine

Iodine is essential for the optimal functioning of your body. It is required for immunity, cellular health, thyroid function and detoxification not to mention making your entire hormonal system function. It is also one of the most potent anti-viral, anti-fungal and antibacterial components in our diet. An Iodine deficiency can lead to a range of health problems. In addition to sub-optimal functioning of the above systems it can also cause goitre (enlarged thyroid), oxidative stress and DNA alterations in the thyroid gland.

Bromide

Bromide is a highly toxic and dangerous element, that blocks the use of Iodine at a cellular level. It is found in a range of products including fire retardants, some soft drinks, plastics and pesticides.
