Iodine

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
First discovered in kelp, Iodine is a very important mineral that dates back to 1812. It was extracted and named "iodine" because of its violet color. The term "ion" is the Greek word for violet.


Benefits

A naturally occurring substance, Iodine is a crucial part of the thyroid hormones that monitor the body's energy levels. Iodine is actually food because it nourishes the thyroid gland.

Iodine, though essential, is only needed in trace amounts.

Organic Iodine, Iodine Phosphate, has the following benefits:
  • Normalizes and regulates metabolism.
  • Relieves pain of Fibrocystic breasts.
  • Protects against toxic effects from radioactive materials.
  • Acts as a natural antiseptic.
  • Helps metabolize excess fat.
  • Aids physical and mental development.
  • Supports the thyroid gland
Deficiency

Iodine deficiency symptoms include:
  • Goiter
  • Hypothyroidism- chronic fatigue, apathy, dry skin, intolerance to cold, weight gain, and thyroid enlargement.
  • Weight fluctuations, especially weight gain.
  • Swollen salivary glands.
  • Breast cancer for women.
  • Mental retardation for children
Pregnancy

In pregnant women, Iodine deficiency could result in the child being born affected by dwarfism, also known as neonatal hypothyroidism. It is imperative that pregnant women take adequate amounts of organic Iodine.

It is reported that one out of fifty pregnant women is diagnosed with hypothyroidism during pregnancy. Also, six out of every one hundred miscarriages are associated with thyroid hormone deficiency during pregnancy.


Synthetic Iodine

While Iodine is found as a natural source in seaweed, most table salt is fortified with synthetic Iodine. Just like white table salt, synthetic Iodine is an inorganic substance and cannot be properly digested or absorbed by the body. This can create serious health problems because it is so unnatural. This can be prevented with organic nutrition to ensure optimal health and well-being.

Synthetic Iodine should be avoided at all costs. High does of inorganic Iodine may aggravate acne and interfere with hormone activity. Many pharmaceutical varieties of Iodine contain radioactive tracers that travel to the thyroid gland and harm the organ.

Western medical pharmacists know these drugs with radioactive tracers are harmful. They emit radiation and cause radiation poisoning. Pharmacists often prescribe Potassium Iodide to offset the effect of the radioactive tracers in certain thyroid drugs.

More than 12 million Americans suffer with Thyroid Disease. However, most of these 12 million individuals aren't aware that they have the disease.

Synthroid

Many people with thyroid disorders have been prescribed Synthroid. Synthroid cannot successfully help the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is mainly comprised of Iodine and thus requires Iodine to repair it when damaged by disease.


Healthy Alternatives

Natural food sources of Iodine include:
  • Garlic
  • Asparagus
  • Lima beans
  • Mushrooms
  • Sesame seeds
  • Spinach
  • Turnip greens
  • Swiss chard
  • Summer squash
  • Soybeans
Herbs containing Iodine include:
  • Irish Moss
  • Iceland Moss
  • Blue-Green Algae
  • Bladderwrack
  • Dulse
  • Kelp
  • Red Marine Algae
  • Chlorella
  • Spirulina
  • White Oat Bark
  • Red Raspberry Leaf
  • Black Walnut Hulls
Natural sources of Iodine from Seaweed are the richest sources and are helpful in increasing and enhancing the production and secretion of breast milk for women.

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
