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.


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

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

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.


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

  • Red Marine Algae
  • Chlorella

How To Save $100 and Save The Planet From Deforestation

Deforestation is a HUGE problem that affects every single living being on this planet. It is estimated that about 36 football fields of forest are cleared every minute! The effect of chopping, bulldozing, and burning these forests is felt on a global scale, as this process is responsible for about 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. This process is also largely detrimental to the animals that call these forests home. With every forest clearing, we lose about 135 different species of plants, animals, and insects.

While deforestation may seem like a problem that is just too big for you to make a difference, that is simply not true. By and large, deforestation is driven by consumers. Palm oil and paper production rank among the top drivers of deforestation. So while it is not good that many of the products we buy and use everyday are inadvertently funding deforestation, there is a lot that you can do to help end this disaster.

12 Million Misdiagnoses Occur Yearly in U.S.

The researchers caution that since their study likely did not capture all types of diagnosis errors that the true rate of misdiagnoses could be much higher.

At least one in 20 U.S. adults, or 12 million people yearly, may be misdiagnosed when they go to see their doctors, a new study suggests.

What's more, researchers estimated that about half of these diagnosis errors could lead to serious harm, such as when doctors fail to follow up on "red flags" for cancer in patients who are ultimately diagnosed with the condition.
