Admit it: the title was too good to pass up but I didn’t write that down just to get you to click on my article. No, what I’m here to tell you is probably one of the best kept secrets about men and their sexual health and it involves what people call the “Iodine Testicle Painting Protocol.” Before we go further, we have to first know why iodine was chosen as the rubbing agent and not some other vitamin or mineral and it all starts with the thyroid.
As you know, the thyroid gland is the one place where a lot of your hormones are produced and our body utilizes hormones in everything we do. From sleeping and eating to feeling happy and building muscle, keeping your thyroid happy will definitely lead to a healthier body.
Boost Testosterone By Making Your Thyroid Happy
Now, the key to making sure your testosterone is at its peak means you have to get your thyroid as optimized as possible. One of the many ways involve iodine consumption either by dietary means or supplementation. Why iodine? Let me answer that with another question: What happens when you don’t get enough iodine in your body?
A thing called Goiter happens.
The American Thyroid Association defines Goiter as the abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland. A goiter can occur in a gland that is producing too much hormone (hyperthyroidism), too little hormone (hypothyroidism), or the correct amount of hormone (euthyroidism). A goiter indicates there is a condition present which is causing the thyroid to grow abnormally. One of the most common causes of goiter formation worldwide is iodine deficiency.
Learn From Japan
You don’t have to get a goiter to start supplementing iodine. While the US RDI for iodine is at a mere 150 micrograms per day for most adults – a level of iodine intake that prevents goiter, mental retardation, and all the associated problems with iodine deficiency – some alternative medicine doctors think this isn’t enough.
In fact, some of these doctors require iodine intake up to milligram doses and they have a good reason for this and one of them is how old folks in Japan do it. The Japanese, specially the elderly, reportedly take in as much as 3000 mcg or 3 mg of iodine per day, up to 20 times the USDA recommendation.
It’s almost common sense at this point that elderly people eating a traditional Japanese diet are doing something right (they’re certainly a lot healthier than your average Americans). So considering a high consumption of iodine-rich seaweed is a distinctive feature of the traditional Japanese diet, it’s reasonable to suggest that maybe a very high iodine intake is part of what makes Japanese diets so healthy.
There are exceptions and potential adverse effects to this but since the protocol involves applying directly to your testicles, where it will bypass a lot of other organs in the body, the risks are minimized. Not to mention you’ll only be applying a few drops at a time.
What’s The Protocol About?
This protocol is based on the idea of topical or transdermal supplementation, a category magnesium oil, a mixture of magnesium chloride and water, currently dominates. The theory behind this form of supplementation is how transdermal applications bypass the digestive system specially the liver.
What happens is you get iodine to where it needs to be. Sure enough, the iodine you get in your diet will cover every inch of your body that needs it but by the time it reaches your testicles, it’ll only get scraps. In fact, there’s a chance that the iodine you eat may not even be absorbed very well and end up being flushed down the toilet. This is where rubbing iodine comes in.
One study noted topical iodine application increased iodine bioavailability up to 7 times and this is just on plain skin. Imagine what happens when you directly rub it on your balls! It will be delivered directly to the prostate where it can relieve symptoms of low libido, erectile dysfunction, and even help reduce an enlarged prostate!
Since you’re also helping your thyroid get a lot of iodine, it will also lead to a surge in testosterone. With lots of testosterone comes harder erections, higher libido, and – according to this study, might even lead to a longer penis.
If you’re body is healthy and if you’re not suffering from any pre-existing diseases, the only problem you might encounter is a bit of prickly heat but it’s bearable. It’s like applying a bit of hot ointment for muscle pain. If you do it right, you should feel the results in a little over an hour which might include you being very, very horny and will definitely help you make your girl very, very happy!
If you’re the type of guy who wants to be as manly as possible specially in bed, go out there and get some iodine for your balls!
