Could Iodine supplementation help cure dysbiosis/gut flora unbalance? Its a shot in the dark.

@Roth Indeed. "The dose makes the poison."

Lithium is a necessary mineral. Unlike sodium, for e.g., that in this era is nearly impossible to be low on, lithium (from the Latin word for "stone") is best gotten from stone cookware and food from from the earth. *Extrememely* high doses are used to treat bipolar disorder and mania; so lithium is sometimes looked down on these days as a "medicine from crazies". Supplemental doses are a couple orders of magnitude less than what a person suffering from bipolar would take. Like some other minerals, I believe those with hyperthyroidism need to be careful supplementing lithium wrt dosages.

^Even Arsenic is necessary.

I would say it's a good possibility. Mineral deficiencies are more overlooked than vitamin deficiencies. If your going to supplement a diet, in the PHD Jaminet recommends not just iodine, but selenium and lithium (and other minerals and vitamins that you may or may not be getting from food already like sodium, and potassium).

I would pick up a copy of the Perfect Health Diet and consult it for ideas and dosages for your particular issues.
