4 Top Reasons Why You Need Iodine!
Ok, so you’ve generally heard about Iodine…I mean your mom used to pour it on your cuts and scrapes when you were a kid, right? Ouch, you still remember that, don’t you? But did you also realize that Iodine plays a GIGANTIC role in your body’s over-all health…and I mean it effects everything from your thyroid, heart disease, cancer rate, hormones, reproductive issues, depression, mental retardation, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and so much more! Phew, that was a mouthful!
If you are shocked by this, hey, you are not alone! Millions of people out there have NO IDEA how important it is. In fact, Iodine used to even be in our breads up until a few decades ago, then the greedy bread makers decided to use BROMINE instead. Bromine is the arch-enemy of iodine, and will literally suck it right out of your body! *snaps fingers* Just like that!
Oh, and by the way, if you think your so called “iodized salt” is enough to fix your iodine deficiency, think again! There isn’t enough iodine in there for what your body needs, and white salt is pretty harmful to your body in other ways. So be sure to stick to “sea salts” and get your iodine from other methods!
Okay, so let’s get to it! Here are the 4 Top Reasons Why You Need Iodine…NOW!
1) Just Say No to Breast Cancer!
That’s right! Iodine can be your lifesaver (literally). It can prevent, and possibly even reverse breast cancers. You see, the iodine is generally soaked up by the thyroid gland first, and then by the breast tissue itself, helpful to relieve any issues there. People that get breast cancers have been tested to show LOW iodine stores in their bodies…hmmm. Could there be a correlation here, I think so!
2) I’m SOOOO Tired! Not Anymore!
Yup! Another amazing thing Iodine is known for is helping with chronic fatigue, PCOS, Fibromyalgia, and just plain low energy. Do you feel tired all the time, and just don’t know why? Well, check your iodine reserves? Are you low? Probably. Fix that and fix the tiredness!
NOTE: You can do a quickie test to see if you are “low” on iodine by getting the iodine tincture at the drugstores. This is for external use only! Just put a 2 inch round swab of iodine on your arm somewhere and if it’s gone in a few hours, it GENERALLY means you are low. But I always recommend getting checked by a qualified doctor for more detailed info!
3) Ovarian Cancer….Your Enemy Is Here!
Ok, you guess it! Iodine is spectacular when it comes to fighting off ANY type of reproductive issues, such as ovarian or uterine cancers, or even painful ovarian cysts. Iodine is your “knight in shining armor” especially when it comes to these type of issues, but it’s generally great at helping with most types of cancer prevention.
4) Heart Disease? Iodine Can Help!
Iodine is absolutely amazing at healing your heart problems. Thousands of people have said it helps their heart become more regular, and stopped any heart arrhythmia or palpitations. Iodine is great for regulating your blood pressure and blood sugar issues as well. It has even been known to help with Type 2 Diabetes too!
NOTE: Always, always check with your doctor to see if iodine supplementation is for you. NEVER stop taking any medication without your doctor’s prior approval!
So there you have it! Those are 4 AMAZING (if I do say so myself) reasons why Iodine is sooo important to your health. If you want to get even more info on Iodine, please be sure to read “Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It” By David Brownstein. This is a super book on everything you need to know about Iodine.
So get out there, and start to take charge of your own health. If you don’t, who will?
