The homeopathic remedy iodum that is prepared using iodate salts has various uses in homeopathy. It is primarily prescribed to cure symptoms related to an overactive or overcharged thyroid. When the thyroid is overcharged, individuals may experience symptoms like enlarged glands, eye pain as well as a voracious appetite along with an inclination to lose weight and a feeling of weakness due to hunger. Even when they exert themselves a little, they start perspiring. Iodum works best for people who have a compulsive desire to always remain hysterically hectic or busy as they have continuous thoughts that are frightening or scary if they are sitting idle or doing nothing. By nature, such people are unable to remain still or sit quietly at one place for long. Although they may be very busy all the time, such people are never organized in what they do. They are also very forgetful and, therefore, they need to recheck everything time and again. For instance, in order to be certain that they have locked the doors at night, they would get up to check it several times. Such people are also very talkative and suffer from extreme mental disturbance. The homeopathic remedy iodum is ideal for such people as it is effective in curing all the symptoms mentioned above. In addition to the uses of this homeopathic medicine mentioned above, iodum is also prescribed to treat problems of the mucous membranes, especially those associated with the larynx. It is also useful for treating disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. Homeopaths also administer iodum for relieving bone pain that generally occurs at night time as well as profound, lacerating toughs.

While the oceans on the earth are the main source of iodine, much of the iodine that is required by us is obtained from the seaweeds. In addition, the saltpeter deposits, especially those in Chile, also fulfill much of our iodine requirements.
