Hello Meetup Friend,
Are you aware that chlorine depletes iodine?
Most of us love swimming in chlorinated pools, hot tubs, having long showers with unfiltered water, etc. … all contributing to iodine deficiency. On top of this, our diets are lower in iodine than ever before. Over the past 20 years, food processors have substituted iodine with bromine which also depletes iodine.
Most of us are iodine deficient and this causes many of our health problems. Low iodine can increase the production of estrogens; and a lifetime exposure to estrogens increases our risk for cancer. Most cancer patients are iodine deficient, especially woman with breast cancer.
One solution, and strong preventative, is to increase our iodine intake. This can normalizes the effect of estrogens on breast tissues. It also reduces toxicity from fluorides and has many other benefits. You may have been told that your thyroid tests are normal. Yet, if you are frequently cold and constipated and have brittle hair and unexplained fatigue, your thyroid gland may not be functioning optimally. Hypothyroidism is an epidemic.
What to do? There’s still an easy way to get a natural form of iodine. It is in the form of clean macro seaweeds. You can eat as much of it as your body wants. There are red and brown seaweeds. Brown seaweeds are highest in iodine. They include all forms of kelp. Bladder-wrack is considered to be the best for underactive thyroids because it contains the most iodine. Red seaweeds include doles, nori, and Irish moss.
Seaweeds of course have many other great benefits than taking care of
On 2/24 Bela Berkes will join our meetup. He will talk about seaweeds and also introduce a new way of easy seaweed consumption.
Consider to join us for our potluck and lecture. (Waiting List
over 30 people).
Best. Anna and Michael
