"Brain dead", "comatose", or iodine deficient?
Disturbing news about the medical organ translant industry; and about iodine, bromide, fluoride and chloride.
Prior to the 1960s comatose patients were considered in a deep coma - alive but not really present here.
Near death experiences and tales told by people who have come out of a coma suggest they are or maybe aware of what is going on occasionally but seem to be trapped in another place/world and can’t reach out to a loved one, or reconnect with their body yet. One story shared by a woman included her own realization during the experience that she was trapping herself, emotionally somehow. I don’t remember all the details. She made it back to tell the tale.
People with “Organ Donor” on their Driver’s license may not be allowed much time to wander around in a Near Death Experience before a doctor declares them “brain dead” and their organs are removed without anesthetics (possibly to preserve the function of the organs). News to know.
Even more important news to know - a doctor in Brazil learned that simply providing thyroid hormone and two adrenal gland hormones could help bring the person out of the coma state. Oh, good to know. Now will anyone be allowed to provide that treatment? Will any patients be saved from having their organs removed without anesthetic?
Neurologist exposes ‘brain death’ myth behind multi-billion-dollar organ transplant industry - LifeSite, Jun 5, 2019, (lifesitenews.com)
“Here is our interview with Dr. Cicero Coimbra, MD, PhD, followed by a video of his talk at the recent “brain death” conference in Rome.” (lifesitenews.com)
via Christine FNP, (1) Comments - VERY DISTURBING: Brain Death Is A LIE. Don't Donate Your Organs – Dr. Paul A. Bryne, post by Lioness of Judah Ministry (substack.com).
That post is a repost of this article: The Beating Heart Donors | Discover Magazine, which goes into more detail about the history and criteria for declaring ‘brain death’, not conscious, but not really dead, as opposed to cardiac/lung death - really dead. Patients declared brain dead still grow, still heal wounds or fight infections, and can even continue growing a baby - 107 days in one case. The babies may survive. But then the woman’s organs are harvested.
Organ transplant is big money - for the surgeons and the ongoing need for pharma drugs to help prevent rejection of the transplanted organ. Patient’s families do not receive any money as that is deemed unethical (it would set up a blackmarket type of for-profit sale of self - loving parent sells organs to help provide for a family in need…).
The organ transplant industry may have also set up the unrealistic notion that a person can just change their body’s sex. Surgery is really not fool proof and can leave aa person in chronic pain from scar tissue or nerve damage. Value functioning parts of whatever shape - God’s birthday suit is a gift. (Our body - in naked glory - it is glorious, not shameful.) We need to take care of it, love it - and not consider it something that an auto parts store can just replace with new parts whenever desired.
We and many other species have innate behavior patterns that help promote survival. Seeking privacy for defecation or procreation is a norm across many species. Both are a vulnerable time - not a time to have a predator interrupt. We also seek a safe place to sleep or rest. Humans are social creatures because we can help each other survive - and companionship is healing. It is literally stress reducing to be with a nurturing companion.
Helping others, “prosocial behavior,” may also help reduce our own physical pain. Donating money alone did not make as much of a difference as helping directly but helped more than not donating or helping. Donating and helping directly also made more of a difference on pain levels. Donating more money made more of a difference than donating less money. (Macchia, Farmer, Kubzansky, 2023) Interesting.
“Thyroid hormone plays an essential role in the regulation of mood and cognition with neuropsychiatric disorders and impairment of cognition seen in patients with overt thyroid disease. Treatment of underlying hypo- or hyper-thyroidism helps to resolve the associated neuropsychiatric and cognitive dysfunction.” (Ritchie, Yeap, 2015)
The thyroid hormone is regulatory over energy and cognition - thinking. Too little or too much thyroid hormone causes different symptoms of mental illness. Hypothyroidism can cause apathy - listlessness, no interest in any normal things, and depression. Hyperthyroidism can cause mania, grandiose thinking, reckless behavior which may include sexual indiscretions, and decision making, planning, following a simple recipe that you made a million times - all becomes kind of impossible. I had undiagnosed iodine deficiency hypothyroidism which improved with iodine. I stayed on it too long at higher doses without selenium an went hyperthyroid. So I learned what both conditions feel like.
My mother’s Alzheimer’s/daily function gets much worse if her Synthroid runs out or is forgotten too many days in a row. Hypothyroid - too little of the energy hormone - is a slowed down state with little energy to do anything and little desire to bother or wonder why? Why do I feel like this?
After I started the high dose iodine, it was Christmas season and I remember shopping for a few hours in a row and enjoying it! Prior to that just doing one or two errands was about all I could handle before needing to rest. That giving thyroid hormone and adrenal hormones can jumpstart a coma patient makes sense.
Destroying your liver with high fructose corn syrup beverages and getting a transplant as a young adult does not make sense but it likely will make a lot of money for someone else. Many problems are escalating at epidemic rates and the food supply and modern life habits, or toxic chemicals in the diet and environment, are largely responsible.
Asking for help from people who have systemized making money from harvesting coma patient’s organs while they might still be ‘alive’ may not be an ethical idea.
Following is an Excerpt from Nutrients - we need them all, (transcendingsquare.com), edited somewhat. Why does the modern human body have so much more neurotoxic bromine and fluorine than the essential nutrient iodine? *There would be more chlorine as it is an electrolyte mineral too. **I show the math in the original post - it is lengthy and includes a Table of elements contained in a human body.
Table 3.1 represents an estimate of the number of atoms of the element present in a human body.
Iodine – Atomic mass: 126.90447 u, # Atoms, T.3.1: 5 x 10^19 ~ 634.52235 x 10^19 u = 6.345 x 10^21 u
Bromine – Atomic mass: 79.904 u, T.3.1: 2 x 10^21 ~ 159.808 x 10^21 u
Chlorine – Atomic mass: 35.453 u, T.3.1: 1.6 x 10^24 ~ 56.725 x 10^24 u
Fluorine – Atomic mass: 18.998403 u, T.3.1: 8.3 x 10^22 ~ 157.686745 x 10^22 u
Chlorine is an electrolyte that we need, so it makes sense that there is more of it than iodine by weight or number of atoms (chlorine ~ 56.725 x 10^24), but why is there less iodine: ~ 6.345 x 10^21 u; than bromine: 159.808 x 10^21; or fluorine: 157.687 x 10^22 u?
Scientific notation extended, Atomic mass of the estimated number of atoms in a modern human body:
Iodine ~ 6,345,000,000,000,000,000,000 u
Chlorine ~ 56,725,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 u
Bromine ~ 159,808,000,000,000,000,000,000 u
Fluorine ~ 1,576,867,450,000,000,000,000,000 u « even though fluorine is lightest, there is more of it than iodine or bromine in the average modern human. It is a neurotoxin and can cause skeletal problems.
Halides can be used in place of each other within molecules, if the iodine is not available, or there is simply far more of the bromine, fluorine or chlorine atoms available to the thyroid gland or other body part in need of iodine. Melanocytes in the skin also need iodine, in order to make melanin normally.
Autoimmune like vitiligo may involve an excess of other halides being present in the skin cell rather than having enough iodine available. The condition is linked to autoimmune thyroid disease, however this article, reviewing current information on the topic simply mentions that the two both have autoimmune antibodies as the link, with no mention that an excess of halides other than iodine might increase risk of autoimmune antibodies, or any mention of iodine at all…. (https://www.daavlin.com/vitiligo-and-thyroid-disease-a-proactive-approach-to-controlling-your-health/).
Fluoride and bromide are chemically similar to iodine and may be used by the body in place of iodine, but the mis-made chemical (like thyroid hormone) will not be able to function normally. The iodine is needed, not the smaller bromide, chloride or fluoride.
This means that every single double-blind study in published medical research likely didn’t exclude people with subclinical hypothyroidism. Lab tests will show the ‘presence’ of adequate levels of thyroid hormone, while the person is experiencing symptoms of iodine deficiency and lack of functioning thyroid hormone. When low iodine levels are available the thyroid gland will produce thyroid hormone that incorporates fluoride or bromide or chloride instead of atoms of iodine.
Low iodine and excess bromide and fluoride may also be a causal factor in fibrocystic breast pain and may increase risk for breast cancer.

Iodine and an old lie, still being spread (substack.com)
Iodine in pregnancy & lactation; also estradiol, anandamide and female tendency for a good mood. (substack.com)
G9. Iodine & Thyroid (effectivecare.info) - older webpage has food sources of iodine and selenium and more information about high dose iodine use.
Search for a stock photo revealed that UnSplash has zero photos tagged ‘iodine’ which seems odd. Usually there are a few photos for minerals.
‘Thyroid' is even sadder - quite a few medical/surgery/cancer types of pictures and nothing very positive.
Those photos were all tagged “thyroid”. Media is complicit/controlled somehow. There are certain themes that are consistently pushed on people - and likely on doctors too.
Physicians can be extremely confident about their wrong information. The history of ‘iodine’ use took an abrupt turn away from standard use of it for treatment purposes to viewing it as something that interferes with radioactive iodine imaging - harder to detect cancer in someone who has adequate iodine - so better to be deficient and get cancer because then the cancer industry gets to step in and make money. Iodine is not bad, radioactive iodine is bad.
They really believe these lies about iodine. It is killing people in many varied ways.
