We Are ALL Iodine Deficient
I am a bit obsessed with improving my health, comprised due to mercury dental amalgam toxicity!
Recently I posted how castor oil has many benefits to aid the body in detoxifying. I have always believed, that if you give your body everything it requires nutritionally, and clean it out, as in detoxifying, that it has the ability to heal itself?
That being said when I went in search of information on Iodine…..WOW!
Some Benefits of iodine supplementation, feeling of well-being. Mental clarity and lifting of brain fog. Achieving more in less time. Increased energy. Feeling warmer in cold environments.
Needing less sleep. Disappearance of muscular aches and pains.
Stronger immune system and resistance to infections. Improved skin complexion. Regular bowel movements.
It appears that for some unknown reason, Iodine a chemical element, that is found in every cell in the body, was somehow removed from our food supply.
I believe now after studying this that we are all iodine deficient!
Right now we have an epidemic of thyroid problems, the thyroid gland has to have iodine to do it’s job when there is not enough, well you guessed it, it doesn’t work right?
Hypothyroidism is far more prevalent than once thought.
The latest estimates are that 20 million Americans have hypothyroidism, but the actual numbers are probably higher.
There is a really simple but somewhat controversial test for iodine deficiency. Simply paint it on your skin and take note how long it takes to be absorbed. You can read all sorts of info on this, but it just seems to make sense that our body can utilize what it needs and the rest is excreted.
