Now we come to iodine. Dr. Brownstein says, “autoimmune thyroid disorders form from a low iodine state,” and explains it in his book. He says, “iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient,” and that you can not achieve optimal health while iodine deficient. The book explains how iodine therapy can help:
- Breast Cancer
- Fibrocystic Breasts
- Graves’ Disease
- Hashimoto’s Disease
- Improve the Immune System
Also, for autoimmune disorders and for a healthy immune system, a person should ensure that they are getting the eight essential sugars (yes that is an official food class). The body does not use these for energy, but for cell to cell communication. This communication modulates the immune function. Very, very beneficial.
Then I must recommend you get a full range of organic, bio-available minerals (there are close to a hundred that are generally listed). “Vitamin O”, by R-Garden is an outstanding product that combines many of these minerals (sea-salt) in a colloidal state with a stabilized oxygen that becomes bio-activated in the stomach. Their website says the manufacturing process,
involves a series of electrical bursts through special metal rods submerged in saline solution over a brief period of time. The electrical force used … is subjected to an unusual agitation … . This agitation introduced into the electrical phase of the process helps to guarantee greater stabilization of the liquid oxygen components … . (R-Garden Vitamin O)
In my opinion Vitamin O is unique and exceptional and should be considered. For something more focused on providing all the minerals, also look up or add Concentrace. For an interesting discussion (I got so interested, I wrote it!) on the effects of salts, minerals, and oxygen on metabolism visit Salts and Oils: Are you on Fire?
And finally, you may be eating foods that are making you sick. How many doctors have asked you what you are eating? Digestion is the ground of health. It if is not working all sorts of problems arise – many that seem unrelated to it.
And now the caveat: This is not medical advice, but shared information. I recommend you do your own research, and I hope to hear back from you as to what you try and what you learn!
