It’s a dirty world out there, outdoor pollution, indoor pollution, car pollution, food pollution, ocean pollution . . . You get the point, but most of us are completely baffled by why so many of us are getting sick. In short we need something to help us detox at the cellular level regularly.
Those same diseases can cripple us, sap our energy and even destroy our minds.
Our bodies are at war . . . with our own environments
It is estimated that your body is exposed to over 700,000 chemicals daily. With that much exposure to chemicals, it is critical that your basic bodily functions be in optimal condition.
Bodily functions in this context being able to excrete bodily wastes, sweating appropriately, breathing etc. But the irony of living in the modern age is that those important bodily functions are being heavily impeded by our hectic, highly artificial environments and foods.
A powerful element to aid in detoxification
Despite the massive wave of chemicals, radiation and poisons being thrown our way, nature has given us help. The element “I” or more specifically Iodine, is a critical element used by our body for cellular detoxification.
Iodine has gained something of a bad rep nowadays due to the fact it was heavily abused in salt shakers in the 50’s and 70’s. The result of which was high blood pressure, hypertension and fluid retention in susceptible individuals. Iodine was effectively demonized and wiped out of the public consciousness during that time frame.
Benefits of Iodine
Iodine has been documented to aid in the following:
- reduce anxiety
- enhance energy and stamina
- prevents goiters
- clear brain fog
- prevents retardation in new borns
- rudimentary antioxidant
- used to prevent fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer
- can remove sodium fluoride toxicity out of your body
- Cellular detoxification
A man by the name of Dr. Brownstein believes that in today’s modern society there is an epidemic of iodine deficiency. And that many of the mental issues and health problems that are popping up are more of a symptom of iodine deficiency than a standalone disease.
Iodine is starting to make a come back
With the incidences of cancer and mental disorders abounding, some people have taken the unconventional medical route. Instead of buying pharmaceutical pills, many people have realized that they are simply iodine deficient and need to increase their uptake of it.
I can personally testify that after taking an iodine supplement my concentration has improved noticeably. My anxiety levels are nearly non-existent and my thinking is much clearer. Not too mention the other health improvements to my body (energy).
One powerful tool to help survive in a toxic world
Iodine can be a powerful tool in your arsenal of low level celluar detoxification. Combining iodine with a exercise regimen and a regular diet full in raw fruits and vegetables is a step towards achieving optimal health.
